Why the Mystery in the Grand Canyon
The Hopi Indians have long spoken of legends about their ancestors once living underground. These tales have been passed on from generation to generation, yet most scientists consider these to be mere myths than points of history.
However, as reported in The Phoenix Gazette on April 5th 1909, G.E.Kincaid who was in the employ of the Smithsonian Institute, found what appears to be a man made cave in the Grand Canyon that was probably capable of housing at least 50000 people and dated back perhaps 12000years.
According to the report in the Gazette, Kincaid claims to have removed artifacts that he found in the cave and sent them to Washington D.C., presumably to the Smithsonian. He claims that amongst these finds were items that seemed to have Egyptian hieroglyphics and others that appeared to be from Tibetan origin.
Supposedly following this initial find, the Smithsonian sent a research team of about 40 people, to investigate further.
It seems strange to me, that a discovery of this magnitude, that could not only change the perceived history of North America but of the World, did not receive further coverage in the press, not globally nor nationally, why?
Apart from the article in the local Gazette, nothing again was said of the find until 1962 when it was mentioned in Joseph Miller’s book, “Arizona Cavalcade”.
At that time, apparently, questions were then asked of the Smithsonian what of the artifacts and subsequent research. The Smithsonian responded that they knew of no such artifacts or research team, why?
- Underground Civilizations: No Myth
For many years stories of ancient civilizations living underground was thought a mere myth. Now underground cities are being excavated, is there truth to the myths?
Mysteries of the Canyon
I have often wondered why parts of the Grand Canyon had such oriental names, such as Tower of Ra, Isis Temple and Shiva Temple.
Could these apparent far flung names really have a more regional significance?
It seems strange that not only are parts of the Canyon, supposedly near where the cave was found, out of bounds to the public but certain parts are out of bounds to even the Park Rangers.
Why the mystery and supposed cover up?
What was really found and sent back to Washington?
If the artifacts were not sent, to the Smithsonian, then to whom were they sent and why?
Since 1990, increasing attention is being paid to whether or not this find was genuine or not but if it really was some kind of prank, then surely it could easily be proven as such.
Why, considering the potential historical evidence, does this remain a mystery?
- Secrets of South America and UFOs
What of UFOs. There seems to be an increasing belief that they may originate from Earth. What is this theory and what does it have to do with a secret city in South America?
- The Real Hollow Earth
Even if the hollow earth theory is not correct, it doesn't mean that underground civilizations do not exist. Are they a possible future threat?
- Aliens, at Kongka La?
Kongka La is a valley in the Himalayas, between China and India. This area has an exceptionally high amount of UFO sightings. Why is it that neither government will allow access to the valley?
- The Maya, Where Did They Go?
As we approach 2012, because of their calendar, the Maya are becoming famous. They were never conquered or destroyed, so where did they really go? Local legend says they went underground. Is it possible? if so: why? Will they return? If so: when? Wil
