Nebra Sky Disk Theories

Although there has been concern raised that the Sky Disc is a fake, multiple tests have revealed that it is authentic – an opinion held by the majority of researchers and archaeologists. Analysis of the bronze indicates that it was made in the region although the gold and tin were probably acquired from Cornwall in Britain. This has raised another problem.  The precision tooling and advanced understanding of the stars does seem very advanced for this time period.

However, the early people from this area did have a fascination with the stars and celestial objects. Around 25 kilometres southwest from where the Nebra Sky Disk was found is one of the finest solar Neolithic sites in Germany.  This series of ancient earthworks has been compared to Stonehenge, in Britain, with regard to its importance.  Studies of the ‘Gosek Complex’ have revealed that it was almost certainly used as a celestial observatory.  However, it’s worth noting that while 25km is considered close today, it would have represented a journey of probably two days to the people of the time.

Historians are facing a difficult question.  Why did some select groups of Neolithic people seem to have awareness far in excess of the ordinary people of the time?  This pattern is not unique and has been observed all across Europe.

A wide range of theories have been put forward about the origin and purpose of the Nebra Sky Disk.  These are just some of them …

Celestial Calendar Theory

The most common of the Nebra Sky Disk theories is that the disk represents the constellations of the night sky around 1,400 to 1,600 BC.  According to Harald Meller, a German academic and archaeologist, the disk was actually a complex astronomical clock that was used by the ancients to harmonise the solar and lunar calendars of the time.

It is commonly accepted, although far from proven, that the Neolithic people of Europe used solar alignments to predict the changing seasons and use this information to provide advice with regard to the planting and harvesting of crops.  This would mean that the Nebra Sky Disk was actually a form of portable stone circle.  If this is all true then the Sky Disk also represents the first record of a multi-calendar synchronisation system.

It is worth pointing out that not all researchers agree with this assessment as it applies to the Nebra Sky Disk or, for that matter, stone circles in general.  As they point out.  A well-positioned pole in the ground, a length of string and a few wooden stakes can achieve the same effect.  They ask, ‘Why were these Neolithic people committing so much ‘expensive’ energy to create complex solutions when simpler ones very easily available?’

Ancient Aliens and ET Contact at Nebra

Extra-terrestrial Contact

Schlosser of the Rurh University at Bochum stated that he believes that these Bronze Age savants already had levels of astronomy knowledge that the Babylonians would only discover a thousand years later. He went on to suggest that questions need to be asked whether this knowledge was acquired locally or originated from afar. Although, he himself makes no connection between the disk and extra-terrestrial events.

This demonstration of advanced Neolithic knowledge has led to speculation that the Nebra Sky Disc represents evidence that early human civilizations were contacted by beings not of this planet.  Ancient alien researchers point out that all across the world, from the rock paintings of Tassili to the Nazca lines of Peru, there are ancient depictions of beings that bear a remarkable resemblance to ‘spacemen’ and their technology.  While nobody claims that the disk itself is of alien origin, the researchers believe it is a depiction of something that people of the region may have seen and copied – possibly to use as a talisman.  In particular they point to the ‘Sun Ship’ at the base of the disk as a representation of a craft capable of travelling through the ‘heavens’.

Nebra Sky Disk - Egypt

Pole Shift Theory

According to other researchers, the extreme lower section of the Sky Disc depicts the constellation of Orion.  This is a major issue for traditional archaeology as Orion should not have been observable from that position in Germany at that time.  In fact, the nearest possible geographic location from which it would have been visible is Luxor in ancient Egypt.   The conclusion that was drawn is that the 26- to 30-degree variance can only be accounted for by a simultaneous pole shift. As Nebra Sky Disk theories go – this one is more abot proving pole shift rather than the origin of the Sky Disk.  As an origin theory it is really suggesting that the design of the disk came from Ancient Egypt.

Nibiru Close to Earth

Niburu

There have been theories put forward that the Sky Disc represents the wandering and mythical planet Niburu and not the moon at all. This has been prompted ancient astronaut supporters who propose that the disc was a stellar map design was left behind by Pleiadian explorers that visited Europe about 4000 years ago.

Certainly historical texts are full of stories of beings that came from the heavens and told the early agrarian cultures how they should lead their lives.  From the Anunnaki of Mesopotamia to celestial gods of early Greek and Scandinavian cultures, the essential story is the same.  The people of Earth were in trouble shortly after a period of rapid climate change approximately 7,000 years ago.  Beings from the heavens came down and shared their wisdom and the people of earth suddenly experienced a massive jump forward in terms of understanding and technology.  These beings eventually left but were then worshipped as gods by the humans they left behind.

Nebra Sky Disk - Fall of Atlantis

Atlantis and Atlanteans Culture

It has been proposed that there is a link between the Sky Disk and the legendary people of Atlantis. The theory suggests that the Atlanteans (Minoans) were a very advanced civilization that helped spread awareness and knowledge to the ancient people of the greater Mediterranean Triangle that stretches from the Black Sea in the East to Egypt in the South and Gibraltar in the West.  These people were based on the Island of Thera and were destroyed when the island experienced a massive volcanic eruption between 1642–1540 BCE – around the same time that the Nebra Sky Disk was buried.

The respected German media channel – Die Welt – is said to have speculated that the Nebra Sky Disk could support the audacious hypothesis of the Atlantis explorer Spanuth, which locates the Atlanteans at Heligoland. He claims that the large water circle “sin-wur” is more like the Black Sea than the North Sea. He asks:

“Where did the creator of the Nebra Sky Disk gain his astronomical knowledge, which can only be worked out over generations to achieve this complexity?”

The Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung rightly states. Even the archaeologist Meller concedes: “It is clear that we always underestimate prehistoric people”. This statement may also be characterized by recent research reports from Göbekli Tepe in Turkey.  Findings by Dr. Klaus Schmidt, Chief Excavator of the German Archaeological Institute, has already identified an early form of a writing in Eastern Anatolia dating back to around 7500 BC!

According to the mythology of the ancients, Atlas was the bearer of the sky, the father of the Pleiades constellation (seven sisters) which is a key feature of the Sky Disk. Atlas was also the great king of Atlantis.

People Just Don’t Know

According to some, the Nebra Sky Disc would be used to see the sunset during the winter solstice and would predict the changing seasons. However, not all historians agree with this explanation.

As it was found along with swords, it has been suggested that it could be part of a shield with a picture of the sky as magical protection.

As always, interpretation of objects from the distant past is complex.

The truth is that although there are numerous theories, modern science simply doesn’t know what the Nebra Sky Disc was used for.

Oldest pyramid on Earth is hidden in Antarctica claims researcher


Sebastian Kettley
The Express

Ancient alien theorists who are certain secret pyramids are concealed all around the globe, think some may be hidden on Antarctica. Conspiracy theorists, in particular, point to a vaguely pyramid-like structure near the Shackleton mountain range on the icy continent. The “pyramid” in question, when viewed on satellite imagery, does appear to have four steep sides much like the Great Pyramid of Giza. This incredibly bizarre theory was presented on the History Channel’s TV series Ancient Aliens, which investigates various extraterrestrial theories.Episode one of season 11 of Ancient Aliens, explored the remote possibility such pyramids were left behind by ancient alien visitors or human civilisations.

Conspiracy theory author David Childress told Ancient Aliens there is a distinct possibility the Shackleton pyramid is the oldest of its kind on Earth.

He said: “If this gigantic pyramid in Antarctica is an artificial structure, it would probably be the oldest pyramid on the planet and in fact it might be the master pyramid that all the other pyramids on planet Earth were designed to look like.”

Antarctica pyramids?

Another conspiracy theorist agreed, saying: “All the way around the world we find evidence of pyramid structures.”We should start looking at the possibility there was habitation on Antarctica.”Was it a lost civilisation? Could it be ancient astronauts?”And just maybe, the earliest monuments of our own civilisation came from Antarctica.”But the theory was challenged by Dr Michael Salla, author of Exopolitics Political Implications of the Extraterrestrial Presence.

The alien expert argued the Antarctic pyramid is just one node in a global network of power-generating pyramids strategically placed around Earth.

A popular pyramid conspiracy claims the triangular structures act as power generators of sorts, built for the purpose of transiting vast amounts of energy wirelessly.

It would probably be the oldest pyramid on the planet

Dr Salla said: “There has been extensive research done on pyramids throughout the world, in terms of their structure an what is they really are.

One of the theories is that pyramids are power generators and so, if you have these pyramids strategically placed around the world generating a charge, it’s possible to create a general standing wave around the world that is a wireless transmission of energy.”

However, not everyone who saw the Ancient Aliens episode was convinced by the wild theories presented.

YouTube user Derrick commented: “Snow covered pyramid shape in Antarctica, I believe geologists would call that a mountain.”

Lazaros Tsakpounidis Tsakpounidis said: “I feel like I’m losing my brain cells after watching this.”

And Mohammad Ziaul Mushtafa Khan said: “No evidence, only a bunch of authors referred them as extraterrestrial theorists claimed everything on Earth is conspired by some aliens, now latest victim is Antarctica.

“Maybe geologist must take lessons from so-called experts.”

And according to geologists, there is nothing unusual about the angular shape of the mountain.

Dr Mitch Darcy, a geologist at the German Research Centre for Geosciences in Potsdam, argued mountains like this are known as nunataks.

Nunataks are exposed and rocky mountain peaks and rides which are naturally occurring and pyramid-like in shape.

Speaking about a similar “Antarctica pyramid” near the Ellsworth Mountains, the geologist told IFLScience: “The peaks are clearly composed of rock, and it’s a coincidence that this particular peak has that shape.

“It’s not a complicated shape, so it’s not a special coincidence either.

“By definition, it is a nunatak, which is simply a peak of rock sticking out above a glacier or an ice sheet.

“This one has the shape of a pyramid, but that doesn’t make it a human construction.”

Let’s learn something new about Gods from Sumeria

Sumerian culture is a special one. In this culture we can find a great number of deities. We can say that the Sumerian culture is the culture with the greatest number of gods. According to many scientists, these Sumerian gods are nothing more than very advanced alien beings that have arrived on earth thousands of years ago.

This extraterrestrial civilization was so advanced for the people who existed at that time on earth that they believed that these beings were Gods.

These Sumerian gods would have come to earth to extract monoatomic gold. They needed this monoatomic gold to repair the atmosphere of the planet they were from. This planet had been greatly affected by wars and pollution, and this gold extracted from Earth was very precious for these aliens.

In the next video there is crucial information that will help you better understand the legend of the Sumerian gods:

In conclusion, these stories about the Sumerian gods require more attention. They have to be studied even more.

An underground treasure of the Mayans has been discovered at Chichen Itza

The find includes 200 pieces of pottery intact for over a thousand years in an underground ritual cave at Chichen Itza.

treasure of the Mayans

The National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH) of Mexico reported on Monday the discovery of at least 200 pieces of ceramics that remained intact for more than a thousand years in an underground ritual cave in the Mayan city of Chichen Itza, in the current state of Yucatan

The cave, discovered 50 years ago but remained unexplored until now, is called Balamkú and has a labyrinthine path with a depth of 24 meters below the surface.

Balamkú is located 2.7 kilometers east of the tourist pyramid of El Castillo or Temple of Kukulkan, popularly known as one of the seven wonders of the modern world.

Guillermo de Anda, researcher at the National Coordination of Archeology of INAH and director of the Great Maya Aquifer project, told a press conference in Mexico City that this is the most important finding since the Balamkanché cave in the 1950s.

“It’s an overwhelming place; I believe without a doubt that it is one of the most important caves of Yucatan and I also believe that I do not exaggerate saying that this is the most important find in the area after the cave of Balamkanche, “said the archaeologist.

treasure of the Mayans

In addition, the researcher pointed out that “the greatest treasure” of Balamkú is that “it is not altered, it is not looted and we have all the information here”.

The vast majority of objects found are censers dedicated to Tlaloc, the Mesoamerican god of water, used for rituals and offerings in the Late Classic Maya period (600-900) The presence of Tlaloc figures, typical of the pre-Hispanic peoples of the center of Mexico, in Yucatan, has opened a debate on how they arrived in this area.

The archaeologist explained that the investigations have discarded the initial hypothesis of a Toltec invasion of the Maya, and noted that “there must be an influence from the center of Mexico towards Chichén Itzá”. Vessels, food, seeds, jade, shells and bones.

“In that sense, these materials will help us establish a chronology,” said the researcher, who revealed that they foresee finding in Balamkú many more objects from the two hundred figures found.

The archaeological remains belong to seven offerings documented so far and are in good condition since the cave remained sealed for centuries.

The incense burners and vessels discovered in Balamku still preserve charred remains, food, seeds, jade, shell and bones, among other elements that the Maya offered during that time to their deities.

The difficult access and morphology of the cave hindered the deposition of these pieces and the celebration of rituals, reason why the researchers consider that it was a space of great relevance for the Mayans of Chichén Itzá.

Mayans

The archaeologist maintained that this cave is “probably more sacred” than the Sacred Cenote itself, a circular depression 60 meters in diameter and 15 meters deep filled with water and located in Chichén Itzá.

De Anda considered that Balamku had more importance because “the effort that represents to enter is greater than in the Sacred Cenote, that received offerings of all Mesoamerica and had pilgrimages”.

So far, the INAH team has carried out a preliminary exploration of the first 450 meters of the cave, although it is estimated that this route would be equivalent to one-third of the actual length.

Researchers are working on the development of a three-dimensional model of the course of the cave under the premise of avoiding modifications in the underground gallery.

Guillermo de Anda explained that they entered this cave to investigate the rumor that has been transmitted for generations that there is an important cenote below the Chichen Itza pyramid.

Although the researcher did not rule out that Balamkú could take this cenote, he affirmed that there is still a long time to find it and verify its existence.

According to the INAH, Balamkú means “jaguar god”, in allusion to the divine quality that the ancient Mayans attributed to this animal, which they believed had the ability to enter and leave the underworld.
