John Anthony West: Pioneer of Ancient Civilization Theories Passes Away
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.

THE SACRED SCIENCE OF ANCIENT EGYPT
Are These Out of Place Artifacts Evidence of Ancient Alien Technology?
The evolution of technology follows a pretty linear path throughout history. But sometimes we stumble upon anachronistic artifacts that challenge that perception and throw those perceived timelines for a loop. To some, these out of place artifacts are none other than ancient alien technology proving our ancestors were once visited by an advanced race, while others maintain it’s evidence we’ve underestimated the technological faculties of those ancestors.
Here’s a list of alleged ancient alien artifacts — you decide for yourself.
Puma Punku’s Ancient Technology Mysteries
Growing up, most are taught that the Egyptians built the pyramids through primitive means, using simple pulleys and brute force from slave labor. But under deeper scrutiny, this explanation doesn’t seem to make sense. And the same could be said about the temple complex of Puma Punku in Bolivia.
The temple grounds of Puma Punku are believed to date back to between 536 and 600 AD, constructed by a civilization appearing to have been wiped out by a cataclysmic event. Puma Punku is part of the larger, well-known Tiwanaku site, an important location to the Incas, who believe it is the cradle of their civilization – characteristics ancient astronaut theorists might consider significant as well.
This area of Tiwanaku is marked by a decorated megalithic archway known as the “Gate of the Sun,” and according to Freddy Silva, it may be one of the world’s oldest temples. Once home to somewhere between 10,000 and 20,000 people, the name Tiwanaku translates to “navel at the center,” implying it once served as a cultural hub.
Atop the Gate of the Sun is a carving of (https://www.gaia.com/article/viracocha-the-great-creator-god-of-the-incas), the supreme God of the Incas. Silva says that Viracocha and his ilk were described as being much different than the indigenous Incas – white-skinned, bearded, fair-headed, and capable of bending the laws of nature. They were also significantly taller. And these weren’t descriptions of the Conquistadors – they didn’t come along for about another century.
The reports of Viracocha’s superhuman race make the anomalous stonework at Puma Punku all the more interesting. Perfect 90-degree angles, precision cuts, and immaculately even spacing in the stones are shocking, considering the primitive epoch in which they were made. Much of this craft stonework remains distinct to this day, confounding scientists and archeologists alike.
What technology could they have possessed to create such fine masonry and who were the people responsible for such precision work?
