Well now there's talk all over the internet about pyramids in Antarctica. What appears to be causing all the discussion is this picture:

Frankly, I think we're looking at plain ordinary mountains here, albeit ones of unusual apparent symmetry. But suppose we ARE looking at pyramids (and I think the size of these mountains would preclude that, but that's just me), or, to put it differently, supposed there WERE pyramids in Antarctica? What would it mean?

Well, for one thing, it would confirm the speculations of many Atlantologists (including, incidentally, the Nazis), who believe that the ice-covered continent was in fact Atlantis, the continent literally being "sunk" under water, in this case, ice. The presence of such structures would raise the bar considerably not only for Atlantology but also for the possible motivations of the Nazi expedition in late 1938 and early 1939, and make it likely - if they discovered such structures during their aerial reconnaissance flights over the southern continent - that they decided to follow up with further investigations.

The reason any discovery of such structures on Antarctica would be significant is rather obvious, for the possibility would be quite strong that if they could be excavated (a mighty big if in Antarctica's case!) the sites might yield some significant records or artifacts of a lost human past. One might even speculate that the discovery of ancient records and technologies might be considered a top prize. Such a discovery could rationalize not only the curious Nazi expedition, but also the postwar attempts not only to internationalize the continent but to keep the curious visitor OUT of the continent.

While I remain skeptical at this moment, the story is nonetheless worth watching, providing, of course, that we don't get the usual mix of internet hysteria and hype (and yes, already the story has been predictably linked to extra-terrestrials and secret Nazi flying saucer research bases. Some people never learn....)

    It seems a given to me that we will keep finding “lost civilizations” or their larger more durable remnants like architecture everywhere on earth. If the seas were to drain, if the ice were to melt, and so on, not to mention if earthquakes were to open up large sections of the planet, I expect we would find swathes of ancient civilizations. In a way, the planet is one giant graveyard – we just haven’t gotten to all the undug areas!

    As to whether these civilizations always have to involve aliens – that supposition is always based on the notion that no civilization here prior to the modern West could possibly have existed – unless it were “alien”.

    Not that I don’t accept the idea that we have been visited here by extraterrestrials – as I mention in one of my own posts, I have had dreams myself which seemed to confirm that there is a good deal of validity to the Sitchen “12th Planet” thesis. But it seems to me it is not one or the other – more likely a mixture of our own advanced (or not) ancient, now buried artifacts, PLUS lots of room for aliens (who make look more like us than not) to have arrived, set up shop, and at some point, left or died off… 🙂

    Sorry but I left out the S and W and S on the cordinates sorry.

    Go to google earth and then go to 70* 39′ 13.53″ S and 2* 57′ 46.87″ and then go to 71* 39′ 31.36″ and 2* 51′ 27.26″ and look at whats there! AQt the second spot is a “research center” ! These things look awlful symetrical to me but then thats just me.

    It does look like an un eroded mountain…until there’s an expedition to see if it’s otherwise, it’s a nice picture. Although scans through the ice (don’t recall offhand whether they were radar, or sonar) did reveal an unusual feature-a mountain range in the approx. centre of the landmass. A rough hunch tells me that there’s obviously some unique and unusual geological formations, and possibly remnants of a civilization. And if nothing else, fossils never seen before. And, unfortunately, nearly impossible to get to.

    But… does it have parabolic sides? That’s the question.

    You will recall the film “Alien versus Predator”, a pyramid featured heavily, in fact it was the central part of the film, in Antartica

    • Christine on March 13, 2011 at 3:41 am

      well, here’s a roundabout scenario. Screenwriter draws on existing
      ideas of ancients worshipping false gods as usual who in this case
      are flesh and blood not just demons, and adds HP Lovecraft
      antarctic lost civilization At the Mountains of Madness, etc., and
      mixes the two outrageous aggressive aliens and OF COURSE
      you’re going to have to have a pyramid because that’s part of
      the ancient civilization and aliens meme………
      But what was Lovecraft drawing on in his nightmares that fuelled
      a lot of of his stories in the first place?

      And I wonder if perhaps something like the xenomorph is waiting
      for us on Titan? Why do both Alien and Pitch Black situate the
      action on a miniplanet/supermoon orbiting a Saturn like planet?
      what subconsciously remote viewing triggered by fantasy and
      desperately probing for ideas maybe came up with that idea?

    Great Scott, Lovecraft was right! It’s one of the Mountains of Madness!

  8. Charles Frith on March 6, 2011 at 2:25 am

    Its a pyramid. Pole shift could be an explanation.

  9. mike perry on March 4, 2011 at 8:08 pm

    If the greys are the nephilim,then where did the fallen angels,spirits, get the greys bodies…know what? i think the greys are just a big disinfo lie,unless, the nephilim,
    (fallen ones,demons) got the greys bodies just like they borrowed ours and made chimeras,from another planet, not necessarily more advanced or less,but i doubt that,cause if their spirit beings what do they need spaceships for (thats our idea) to show us how cool they are? doubt it?
    id like someone like Tom Horn to answer this one,his info awesome,too.
    any clues, mr Farrell?

      Their ships are vessels similar to the body housing the soul.

    My problem with this photo, is the shadow correct? I am born and raised in northern Alaska and even though we get 24 hour sunlight for three days straight (June 20,21,22,)When the sun does’nt set for three days! Being 90 miles south of the Arctic Circle, still VERY far from the north pole, shadows are very LONG! I think this would have to be taken around Dec. 21 (summer soltice in the southern hem.) Also,when you have freezing and thawing,the snow that blows into the crackes on the sunny side of the “mountain” and ridges,ecspecially with the dark color of the rock absorbing the sun melts the snow into water that seepes into the cracks of the rock strata refreezing and expanding relieving the sharpening of the edges always rounding! With todays CG it’s getting harder and harder to decipher what’s truth or fake! It’s gunna take gut instincts!!!

    it still amazes me how amazed people are at an amazing world! in a world where nothing is impossible, only unnimagined! but unfortunately a society where imagination is dying and sold as reality! i pray for the day that the balance is found between reality and imagination to reveal the true power of imagination and the stronghold it has on reality. we wont trully appreciate our existence and find the secrets to it untill we find the balance!
    to all with much love,… keep an open mind and heart! its the key to evolution!!!

  12. chris on March 1, 2011 at 8:31 pm

    Lovecraft got dream visions of a black alien cone under the ice at the poles. Thats what this reminded me of. I think we can get accurate information in dream states. Just saying this ties into that which is interesting to me. Kooky post over 🙂

  13. shandor on March 1, 2011 at 7:31 pm

    How about a sculpted mountain to take the shape of a pyramid?

  14. Bill on March 1, 2011 at 5:02 pm

    Some years back, Canadians Rand and Rose Flem-ath championed the idea of Atlantis in Antarctica in their book “When The Sky Fell.” I read the book back in the nineties, and it actually is a rather well argued presentation. This also gets me back to thinking of Richard Hoagland’s “Lake Vostok” discussions, also, that is on the Enterprise Mission website. So far, it seems that what is in Antarctica stays in Antactica!

    • Greg Parent on March 2, 2011 at 3:02 am


      The Flem-ath book was the most compelling of the Antarctica-Atlantis theories and a very good read as well.

  15. Tartarus on March 1, 2011 at 3:42 pm


    While the photo may well be nothing more than an odd looking mountain, I think there may well exist the ruins of an ancient civilisation under the ice.

    Of course, the only way to conclusively prove or disprove this idea would be for someone to drill under the thick ice sheet and take a look. Unfortunately, this task would be so expensive that it’ll almost certainly be a while before anyone attempts it.
