MAGICIANS OF THE GODS


Graham Hancock is the most familiar face in the ancient mysteries subject, and in November he returns to the Origins conference to present his compelling evidence for the existence of a lost civilization existing at the time of the last Ice Age that was obliterated in the wake of a comet impact that devestated the world around 10,900 BC. Thereafter the first megalithic stone monuments began to appear in the world. Gunung Padang, Gobekli Tepe, Stonehenge, the Great Sphinx, and even the newly discovered stone circle located beneath the waters of Lake Michigan. All of these stone structures and many more were created as a response to what had just happened to the world, their existence paving the way for the foundation of our own civilization in the wake of the Neolithic revolution some 11,500 years ago.

Graham's much anticipated new book Magicians of the Gods is published in September 2015, and ample opportunity will be given for him to sign copies for the Origins Conference audience.

 

DANNY HILMAN NATAWIDJAJA

THE MYSTERY OF GUNUNG PADANG AND THE REALITY OF PLATO'S STORY OF ATLANTIS

Javanese geologist Danny Hilman Natawidjaja has caused controversy with his findings with respect to the megalithic site of Gunung Padang in Indonesia's West Java province.It consists of a series of stone settings and rock mounds made from long Andesite columnar blocks situated on five stepped terraces, which grave the apex of a huge hill. The monuments you see today are mainly from around around 600 BC, yet beneath the current structures are rows and groupings of further columnar blocks that Danny and a multidisciplinary team suspect were placed down as part of a much older structure built in stages, much like the pyramid structures of Central and South America. Radiocarbon dating of the next layer down from the surface (layer 2) has revealed radiocarbon dates in the range of 5000 BC, while those of an even lower level have provided dates that suggest the presence of a built structure prior to 8000 BC. Indeed, some dates indicate the presence of an even deeper level going back even further, with indications that something existed on the spot as much as 14,000 years ago.

Danny Hilman Natawidjaja will outline his incredible work at Gunung Padang, showing the timeline of its different phases, and revealing the real secret of the monument - the hidden chamber at the core of the hill, which is thought to surround a volcanic lava tube. This has been detected by geomagnetic, geophysical and georadar surveys, and its discovery might well equal the discovery of the Hall of Records at Giza in Egypt.
Danny is the author of the book Plato Never Lied.

ANDREW COLLINS

Gunung Padang, Gobekli Tepe & Our Descent From the Stars


Andtrew Collins at Petra

Andrew Collins (born 1957), writer, explorer, international lecturer and author of books that challenge the way we see the past, including The Cygnus Mystery (2006), From the Ashes of Angels (1996), and Gobekli Tepe: Genesis of the Gods (2014).

 

Over the past year Andrew has been travelling the world exploring the greater antiquity of prehistoric sites from Gobekli Tepe in southeast Anatolia to Gunung Padang in Indonesia's West Java province, Mount Carbon in West Virginia and Peru's Tiahuanaco. This work forms part of his new book project showing that hybridization between different types of archiac and more modern humans gave rise to civilization tens of thousands of years earlier than what history suggests. He reveals the fruits of his endeavours and begins to build a picture of a global belief in the importance of the northern heavens, in particular the Milky Way and Pole Star. These were personified as a primeval goddess of life. Although she takes many forms, this stellar goddess is primarily associated with key Pole Stars of the distant past, such as Deneb in Cygnus and Vega in the constellation of Lyra. As the so-called Weaver Princess of Island Southeast Asia she is said to have mated with a supernatural or heavenly dog to give birth to the human race. It is a tradition that can be traced from Java all the way across to China and Tibet. Andrew reveals the true origins of these strange beliefs in a supernatural ancestors, tracing its origins to the indigenous peoples of Lake Baikal in southern Siberia. They for millennia have believed in their descent from a supernatural wolf. Why? Why a wolf? Andrew explains in this brand new lecture.

LYNN PICKNETT & CLIVE PRINCE

SCIENCE'S OCCULT SECRET, QUANTUM MAGICK - AND ISIS IN THE VATICAN…

Bestselling authors Lynn Picknett and Clive Prince will be speaking about their most recent book The Forbidden Universe: the Occult Origins of Science and the Search for the Mind of God. Despite a cover-up by the likes of Richard Dawkins, they will reveal that it was the religion of Ancient Egypt, in the Hermetic books, which inspired the great names of science such as Galileo and Newton. And it even came close to toppling the Catholic Church…

Lynn Picknett and Clive Prince have been working together for over 20 years on subjects such as Leonardo da Vinci's role in faking the Turin Shroud and the identity of the real Christ. They are most famous for The Templar Revelation, which inspired The Da Vinci Code. They have cameo roles in the movie.

THE ANCIENT ORIGINS OF PERUVIAN CIVILIZATION

Who built the Bolivian city of Tiwanaku? Where did the high precision technology used at its Puma Punka come from? How old is it. What the true origins of Peru's polygonal masonry, and who was Virococha, the legendary founder of Peru's lost civilization? Hugh Newman presents the evidence for the Pre-Incan cultures of Peru and Bolivia based on many years of experience visiting and experiencing these very ancient and sacred places.

Jim Vieira is one of the foremost experts in the world on the mystery of the giant skeletons found in literally hundreds of Native American mounds across the United States. He has collated many thousands of newspapers and scholarly accounts of huge skeletons being found, and for years posted one case daily on his webpage "Your Daily Giant". He is also the star of the History Channel TV show "Search for Lost Giants".
Jim is here at Origins 2015 to launch his new book Giants on Record, co-written with Origins and Megalithomania organiser Hugh Newman. He will update the audience on the very latest evidence on this baffling mystery of our times, and speak also about the stone and mound building cultures to which these ancient giants belonged.
