Someone in the members' vid-chat last Friday night asked me what I thought about the events in Libya, and if I thought that there might be "other motivations" behind the projection of Western power into that country, if, perhaps, I thought it possible that "they" were looking for "something" concerning ancient technology. I have to admit, the idea intrigued me and I don't suspect, for a moment, that that is the only reason, but I do hold open the possibility that it might be a reason.

One of the more peculiar features of that country is the so-called Libyan Desert Glass, near the western edge of the "Sand Sea" of Egypt, close to the border of modern day Libya. But there is a mystery associated with the place, and it's a rather large one:

Libyan Desert Glass

The article notes that the area comprises yellow-greenish glass, that was formed by the high heat of ... well, a meteor impact some "29 million years ago, very likely when an asteroid or comet hit the surface of the earth like a huge atomic bomb, unleashing enough destructive force to liquefy the rocks, sand and dirt at ground zero."  But there's a problem, and the problem is highlighted by the very next sentence:

"The crater marking the original impact site has not yet been discovered. It‘s possible that it is under millions of tons of sand or it erroded away over the millions of years. Another possibility is that an event, similar to the explosion of an asteroid or comet that knocked down nearly a thousand square miles of trees in the Tunguska region in Siberia on June 30, 1908. A similar, much larger, atmospheric explosion could have created a fireball that would be large and hot enough to fuse surface materials to glass, much like the first atomic explosion generated green glass at the Trinity site in 1945."

There you have it: it was created by a meteor impact, but, hey, oh yea, we're missing the crater, or it could have been caused by a Tunguska-like event, where a meteor exploded in the air creating a massive fireball...or..."  Uh huh.

Well, I've never bought the "spontaneously exploding meteor" explanation for Tunguska either. Which as a possibility, and that raises the bar... Just what may have been discovered under the Libyan deserts by radar tomography is anyone's guess, because for the most part, public information - at least as far as I've researched the matter as of this moment - has been mostly concerned with petroleum exploration. But we are seeing perhaps a bit of a pattern here, for Libya would make the third Middle Eastern country in the last decade to be subjected to an intervention by western powers, after Iraq and Egypt..., if artifacts from museums in Tripoli suddenly turn up missing.... well, you draw your own conclusions.

    Read the lost book of Enki by Zacariah Sitchin that will explain what happened in those areas the fused glass were found at. It has to do with five cities that went against the so called gods and they used weapons of mass destruction against those cities. Honestly read The Lost Book of Enki. You will never have to ask that question again.

    • Joseph P. Farrell on June 12, 2012 at 2:48 am

      I’ve read it, and as anyone who has read my works knows, I have problems with Sitchin. Incidentally, the Lost Book of Enki is a work of fiction.

        Hi Joseph.

        I’m currently researching the role of Shiva in the ‘Cosmic War/Wars of the Gods’ hypothesis. So far I have:
        War against Giants and Monsters
        3 Cities destroyed by something like a scalar weapon/needs the operator as part of the weapon/torsion
        Lesser ‘gods’ with Nuke tech
        A black stone
        3 Cities that appear to be orbital or non terrestrial.can only be destroyed when aligned
        An astrological ‘alliance’ of planets and moons
        Shiva as Ninurta/Orion

        I hope to get this research together in a sound format. I’ll pass it on if you are interested.

        I have not read any of your books as your site is new to me, I came across it by accident and was excited to see topics you have on the site that interest me. I have read all of Mr Sitchin’s books and I am a big fan of his. I guess time will tell if the Lost Book of Enki is fiction or not. I do hope to get your first book soon and then once I have read it and if it draws me in like the Sitchin books did then i will procede to get the other books you have written. Thanks for you reply.

    What if the Libya attack is just another dirty bomb operation and euthanasia of North Africa? In the last ten years Iraq has been completely irradiated along with Afghanistan and now Japan. The amount of depleted uranium used in Iraq is enough to kill off half the population in the next 30 years and it is spreading:

    while the above article may seem like good news, the long term consequences of depleted uranium on the global population are dire. The effects of depleted uranium in Afghanistan are now being felt in Pakistan and India. The Japan dirty bomb may have a greater effect than Chernobyl and poison much of Asia. Is it possible the Babylon banksters are using these military operations also as a means to kill off a chunk of the human population through radiation poisoning? It is so diabolical, you have to assume it is part of their plan. Possibly they saw the effects of Chernobyl and they had a demonic brain fart.

    If this is the case then we can expect dirty bombs of some sort in North America as well.

    Thank you Bill for your informative response.

    • Bill on April 26, 2011 at 4:46 am

      My pleasure. Some of the book sources include: David Hatcher Childress’ “Lost Cities and Ancient Mysteries” series; Pauwels’ and Bergier’s “Morning of the Magicians;” Richard Mooney’s “Colony Earth,” and “Gods of Air and Darkness;” Charles Berlitz’s “Atlantis: The Eighth Continent,” and “The Lost Ship of Noah;” Andrew Tomas’s “We Are Not The First;” can’t recall where Professor Hapgood came into this discussion, but, years back, I’ve read somewhere where he was interested in the “fused green glass” issue which to him suggested the possibility of the development of ancient nuclear technology. Even the “father” of the atomic bomb, Robert Oppenheimer, is said to have come to the belief of the use of nuclear weapons technology in ancient times due to his reading of ancient Indian Sanskrit writings such as the “Bhagavid Gita;” et al!

    Don’t forget: electricity (lightning) can also make “glass” out of sand.

    I’m not saying I “know” that a huge electrical arc created all that glass in Libya, but it seems like a likely possibility that should not be dismissed out of hand.

    Of course, electric arcs can be natural or . . .UNnatural.

    Question for Bill.

    Bill can you provide us with the references to what you wrote?

    “Since the beginning of the (current) atomic age, fused green glass has been reported in the deserts of not only Egypt and Libya, but also the Gobi, Death Valley and the Mojave, parts of India, and even the outback of Australia.”

    I am have read elsewhere about Egypt’s, Libya’s and India’s green glass but have not read anything regarding such at Gobi, Death Valley, Mojave and the Australian outback.

    Thank you.

      My information sources have been primarily courtesy of the writings of David Hatcher Childress of Adventures Unlimited Press. I’d been a member of David’s “World Explorers Club” back in the nineties. Other sources include writers such as Louis Pauwels and Jacques Bergier, Andrew Tomas, Richard Mooney, and the late Charles H. Hapgood. My first introduction to the “fused green glass” story was way back in 1982 courtesy of the book “Pole Shift: Scientific Predictions of the Ultimate Disaster,” by John White. If memory serves me, even the late Charles Berlitz have commented on this in his writings.

    “In 1998 an Italian scientist, Vincenzo de Michele, visited the Egyptian Museum in Cairo and noticed that one of King Tutankhamun’s jeweled breastplates contained a carved scarab that looked suspiciously like a piece of the glass. A simple optical measurement confirmed that it was made of Libyan Desert Glass!”

    Just a tiny window……..

    I just listened to your thebyteshow interview and read this…then the news just noted that there are air strikes on the president of Libya — the announcer noted that a library was damaged — wonder what was/is in that library.

    Emerald Stone?
    Emerald Tablet?

    • Joseph P. Farrell on April 25, 2011 at 1:57 am

      Intriguing idea James!!! Very intriguing!!!

  9. Jon on April 24, 2011 at 1:18 pm

    By the same token, oil exploration is ubiquitous and accepted (desired even), and that makes it a great cover to look for “other things” with radar tomography.

    It also locks the oil interests deeply into whatever finds they make…

  10. Bill on April 24, 2011 at 8:56 am

    Since the beginning of the (current) atomic age, fused green glass has been reported in the deserts of not only Egypt and Libya, but also the Gobi, Death Valley and the Mojave, parts of India, and even the outback of Australia. The causal agency by means of a technology is a much simpler hypothesis as opposed to air bursted comet and asteroid fragments, as the latter clearly requires a rather complex MULTITUDE of assumptions that, at least to me, would border on the miraculous!

    Phaeton and Helios? And the amber found by the Nymphs?
