John Anthony West: Pioneer of Ancient Civilization Theories Passes Away

John-Anthony-West

John Anthony West was not a man interested in legacy or fame. Like many of his peers, he dedicated his life to the pursuit of uncovering hidden truths, sparking a flame to our collective story where historians and scientists had turned a blind eye.

For 40 years, his perseverance led to ground-breaking discoveries, including the controversial claim regarding the Sphinx’s ancient origins (Sphinx water erosion theory), which was presented in the award-winning documentary Mystery of the Sphinx. His radical fearlessness in the face of criticism also led to the popularization of Klaus Schmidt’s work, exposing the oldest religious site known to man, Göbekli Tepe. West referred to this discovery as, “the ‘smoking gun’ against which orthodox academics have no defense.”

 

 

West was unapologetic in his efforts and paved the way for generations of seekers to participate in changing the course of history, regardless of the credentials or degrees that follow one’s name.  A true pioneer, his work lives on through those impacted by the knowledge he brought forth, such as Robert Shoch, whose research and contributions were instrumental to the awareness and progression of West’s work. 

John Anthony West was one of the main reasons I began work on the possibility of a lost civilization. This is a man who has immersed himself in the mystery of ancient Egypt for decades. To get this wisdom shared about Egypt, the love and the passion, is something that no one else can replicate.” – Graham Hancock

These Hindu Texts Describe Flying Vimanas And Details Of An Ancient Nuclear War

The Hindu Vedas are packed with fantastic stories about the gods, their powers, and epic battles that supposedly took place long ago. Their sagas are widely perceived to be mythological stories that were created to be taken as allegory, much like we tell our children fables, so they might glean useful life lessons to apply down the road. These Hindu myths talk of noble Gods who fight off wicked forces, flying craft called Vimanas, and … nuclear war? Are we sure these were just allegories?

Vimana Technology 

The Vimana aircraft that are described in ancient Hindu Sanskrit texts are flying machines of varying degrees. The word Vimana translates to “having been measured out” or “traversing,” and were machines piloted by the gods. Much like the chariots of biblical texts, most notably the one seen in Ezekiel’s vision of the wheel, these flying craft came in all shapes and sizes and could travel at different speeds and distances. Some were land and seafaring vehicles, while others flew, sometimes all the way to the moon or further.
