E.G. and V.T. both spotted this article about 17 OOPARTS that suggest there was a civilization right here on Earth prior to the rise of modern man, which, according to the current quackademic narrative, was ca. 200,000 years ago.  I say "quackademic", because according to that same narrative,  y chromosomal Adam was around for a few thousands of years longer than mitochondrial Eve leaving one to wonder just what was going on without an appeal to certain ancient texts that no one wants to take seriously, even though "they" provided the terms "y chromosomal Adam" and "mitochondrial Eve" all by themselves, and without any assistance from the Pope, who doesn't seem to be the type who reads old texts predating Karl Marx anyway.  And in case you're wondering just what the heck an OOPART is, it is an "Out Of Place Artifact", a "something that shouldn't be there but is."

And there's a nice catalogue of them in this short article, and hence my reason for sharing it with you:

17 Out-of-Place Artifacts That Suggest High-Tech Civilizations Existed Thousands—or Millions—of Years Ago

Now, for the record, you can definitely put me in the "believers" column here, because I do believe that there was such a civilization, and that our current efforts at the same spring from it. I also think that there's enough evidence from around our solar system to suggest that that civilization may have been interplanetary. And finally, no, I am not a believer in the current quackademic narrative, without some profound modifications to that narrative. One of those modifications would be with respect to items number 14, 9, 8, and 3: the 1.8 billion year old nuclear reactor, the drill bit found encased in coal, the tiny spheres, found in Africa, that are 2.8 billion years old and yet of obvious manufacture with their three parallel groves, and "Rama's bridge" between India and Sri Lanka, a "structure" geologists say is about 1,000,000 years old.

These are just a few of the OOPARTS that people have uncovered, and one of the most thorough and mind-boggling, noodle-baking, brain twisting compendia of such artifacts is Michael Cremo's and Richard Thompson's Forbidden Archaeology, a nine-hundred page tome that catalogues and discusses some of these OOPARTS: from ancient coins found in geological strata 235,000 years old that were clearly made with a mill press, to steel pipes discovered in chalk mines in France, again hundreds of thousands of years old, to the above-mentioned spheres with groves found in Africa.

What's interesting to contemplate is that my "list" is a challenge to the narrative: if one accepts the genuineness of these OOPARTS, then someone was clearly here long before we, "modern man", were, and whoever they were, they were building things...

...like nuclear reactors maybe.

Who were they? Because of certain other stories, our ancestors maybe, probably... our "genetic cousins" as I sometimes like to say.

What is remarkable is that all of this has been mentioned in story after story, from the Bible to the Vedas, from Sumer to Saigon, Anchorage to Angkor Wat, from Norway to the Nile.

Those texts also tell other tales as well, tales of genetic manipulations of life into grotesque and twisted forms, of the mastery of life and death such that life itself drug on and on in an apathetic misery and the great evil that comes of boredom and listlessness which we're seeing a lot of again today, of titanic wars and colossal destruction and loss of life...

The OOPARTS are there.  They exist.

And no amount of explaining away can make them not exist. And their message is also a warning that our civilization with its technological accomplishments can end and disappear just as easily as theirs did. In other words, those old texts, and their stories - which were probably already very old when they were finally written down - are also Out of Place Artifacts, and its time to read their stories in the light of the artifacts mentioned in this article.  It's time to take those stories seriously.

See you on the flip side...

    One still uses Michael Cremo’s & Richard Thompson’s, “Forbidden Archeology,” and Graham Hancock’s, “Message of the Sphinx,” “Magician’s of the Gods,” “Fingerprints of the Gods,” and “Underworld,” to remove paradigm traces of the stupid. Out of place stuff, above and below the waterline, are too numerous to ignore. They, by far, are not the only folks with an Ancient story to tell and demonstrate. These publications almost read like encyclopedias as do some of their documentaries to date.

    Like wise demonstrable are those items and places of interest located in the portal laden hot zone off of Florida that Daniel Liszt portrays on his Dark Journalist site. Also demonstrated on this site. Lots of stuff that portrays emerging patterns of omission and denial by presumptive authorities of their existence in plain sight.

    Or, are this missing periods of man a season of intergalactic harvesting of the “observer”.
    A high-tech wonder; quarantined and harvested on Planet Earth.
    The only other genetically handcuffed prisoner, the infamous octopus.

    Life span cut to just two years.
    The reason?
    Limiting them to be able to form a conscious, communitive life and/or culture.
    Some live only a season.
    The smarter octopuses would be the ones nearer the shore; in environments that provide them w/diverse challenges, problems to solve.
    A shape-shifting hunter-gatherer. A master of its environment. Of camouflage and distraction; who escapes death many times a day, and kills to survive. The apes of ocean intelligence.
    Now imagine the naked ape trying to catch an octopus with all his advanced sensors? But, those motion sensors and infrared would be going against one whose entire existence was spent fooling motion sensors-the living exquisite sensors of the sea[seen & unseen], predator and prey “evolving” to quicksilver reaction[s]. If it wanted to eat, it had to fool those deadly delicacies moment by spilt-second moment; finding angles of 360 degree attacks, heating systems designed to thwart it. He, shifting its shape and gait. Becoming all the things around it[camouflage], moment by split-second moment, one after another.

    Who knows what man WAS capable of?
    Because those “genes” were exercised out-of-existence; or, at least become so atrophied they’ve virtual ghosts.

    Two prisoners, genetic precision scalpelling away traits; while engineering in genetic handcuffs – like two year life spans. Or, for man; an earlier death than he was originally gifted.

    So, were the missing periods, a galactic harvesting of “gifted” observer slaves.
    And, how is man treating the “other” prisoner?
    Perhaps, there is a hidden terms of agreement; a trip-wire for behavior that “changes”.
    If and when, a epigenetic change follows?
    Whose to say?
    It’s all ready too strange.
    How can it be any stranger?

      In other words, is man being farmed out every so many galactic seasons?

    • InfiniteRUs on October 26, 2022 at 8:20 am

      All these ooparts look primitive or natural like the supposed nuclear reactor. Of course if there was a real smoking gun we would likely never hear of it. Lately I’ve begun to suspect much of these memes when announced are being used to judge how gullible we are or as a distraction from something they are doing and don’t want us focusing on.

  3. gord on October 25, 2022 at 11:26 am

    We in the US have an OOPART for President.

    I have no problem with the idea that somebody was here much earlier that we thought, and that they left some artifacts behind. But there is another side of the story I question, and that is the dating of the geological strata where the objects are found. What if the geology is much younger than we thought? And maybe a coal bed can form relatively rapidly and relatively recently. If a jewelry store in city gets swallowed in a sink hole or earthquake catastrophe, gets covered with muck and silt, maybe even is covered with a new ocean or sea to add pressure, and lo and behold 1,000 years from now geologists discover gold jewelry in a coal bed under the sea and assume it must be millions of years old. I can imagine the social-engineering cabal having a meeting and asking, “Is it better to let people think these objects are millions of years old, or would it be better to let them know that the Earth can rapidly morph its geology and has done so in the recent past?”

    • Robert Barricklow on October 24, 2022 at 8:15 pm


      There are several factors that are in play;
      anyone of which, can fit different outcomes…
      for ancient archeological puzzles.

      Incidentally, the last Wheel of Fortune’ bonus puzzle was?
      Solving Puzzles.

      OH!, they dropped the dehumanizing social-distancing.

      Still, no audience[s] pictured;
      as there was before the Covid19(84) black op]

      [Because? There would be no mask muzzles?]

    • FiatLux on October 25, 2022 at 12:53 pm

      I’ve wondered the same thing about archeological or geological dating. There could well be geological processes that mainstream science isn’t aware of, doesn’t understand, or doesn’t disclose. Maybe impacts from asteroids or other space debris that bury things far below the surface, destroying most but not all objects in the impact zone? (Just a wild guess.) I suspect some — but not all — OOPARTS are more recent than mainstream dating methods would allow.

      My speculation: Some OOPARTS really are extremely old. That, combined with texts and oral traditions from all over the world that corroborate the existence of what Dr. Farrell has called “paleoancient” high civilizations, makes me think one or more advanced civilizations have indeed come and gone in Earth’s history.

      If scientists can do it, nature can.

      “The research, recently published in the journal Nature Communications, provides a step-by-step guide in turning CO2 into coal”

      “To convert CO2 from the atmosphere into solid carbon coal, the researchers used a cerium-containing liquid metal catalyst, which is uniquely efficient at conducting electricity and has specific properties.

      When the researchers electrically charged a vessel with CO2 and the liquid metal, the carbon dioxide began to convert into small flakes of coal. The solid carbon flakes naturally detach from the liquid metal and fall to the bottom of the vessel, allowing for continual production of solid carbon from carbon dioxide. The end product can also hold an electrical charge, meaning it could be used as a supercapacitor after the process.”

    Some of the best artifacts are found in Australia. This continent has remained untouched for millions of years given its remoteness and was only ‘discovered’ by Captain Cook 200 years ago. The Aborigines have many legends and stories to tell.
    The books by Steve and Evan Strong are well worth reading.
    Here is interesting article.

    There is also the mysterious Black Knight satellite which is believed to be ancient and have been orbiting Earth well before our civilization’s first satellite was launched – Sputnik.

    • Robert Barricklow on October 24, 2022 at 9:14 pm

      That Black Knight is quite another puzzle and has been blogged about here at Giza.
      Just use the Giza search engine located in upper left[*magnifying glass icon].
      My money is that the Black Knight is Nazi engineered.
      [15 tons?; polar orbit?; 13,000 years old?;
      why is the story brought out, every now & then?; extraterrestrial origin?.

      In one of Dr. Farrell’s blog*, is it possible that a U.S. Space Shuttle
      captured the Black Knight and brought it back to Earth[2/2/2015]?

      Thanks for bringing this subject up Michael UK.

    OOPart: an out of place, unauthorized narrative. [or]
    Truth, something that shouldn’t be there;
    especially, after the Smithsonian arrives on the scene.

    The question isn’t whether there was a civilization before “early man”;
    it is rather, how many were there?
    As always; running late…

    • Robert Barricklow on October 24, 2022 at 6:17 pm

      There is a serious message there about the “technology”.

      What is missing?
      Is what the technology did.

      Did the technologies leave a huge missing piece, in the narrative[S]?
      And; do those in charge – WANT to keep those narratives colored…

      Yet, at GIZA…
      Those, and other ancient artifacts…
      they are NOT forgotten.

    Another question, what was here before earth? All we can do is speculate.

    • Robert Barricklow on October 24, 2022 at 8:16 pm

      Or, was Earth in a different position; in the solar system?

  10. Sophia on October 24, 2022 at 9:29 am

    Why 17, of all possible numbers? The 17th letter of the alphabet is Q, and use of that number is often inferred as indirect reference to that mysterious Internet source/phenomenon.

    1. Does Zerohedge have an intelligence or INFO OPs/PSYOPs function? (counter-INTEL?)

    2. Was the article a message from one group to another, perhaps the hidden two groups (or factions) inferred to exist in “Genes, Giants, …” (with the implication being that Q derives from one of these groups or factions)?

    While Zerohedge isn’t mainstream media, it does seem to be a premium alternative news site. If Zerohedge does have an INTEL function of some sort to it, it would be an excellent vehicle to begin disclosure or at least issue the threat thereof.

    Anyone know a good real estate agent in Antarctica?

    • Robert Barricklow on October 24, 2022 at 9:20 pm

      I too wonder about Zerohedge.
      For me, nearly all information can be traced to some intelligence op/filter.

    • Richard on October 26, 2022 at 8:58 pm

      [17] may have a reference to the number 17 card of a Tarot deck. The numbers 16 thru 22 have associations with Tarot deck card numbers. In this setting [17] is the “Star” card. Besides being a prime number, divisible by itself and ‘1,’ it is considered a complex number as it could also suggest some form of fusion such as 1 + 7 = 8, to say little about what many mystics might interpret its meaning in context for whom it is drawn.

  11. Laura on October 24, 2022 at 9:28 am

    our present civilization, when as expressed as artifacts, will be characterized as the era of the plastic makers. Fighting for access to oil and gas and then manufacturing endless nurdles, to be formed into a variety of plastic objects. instead of creating oyster shell mounds, we will provide future archaeologists with infinite opportunities for theorizing about the conveniences and values inherent in our lifestyle.

      “The Gods Must Be Crazy” 1980 movie

  12. White Lily on October 24, 2022 at 8:23 am

    I have no doubt that Western civilization is destined to crumble (at any moment) into nothing more than OOPARTS and dust in the trash heap of earth’s history.
    It makes me wonder about all those people or beings who lived in those other ancient destroyed societies, what we they like? Did they cling to life in the same way that we do? How did they feel as their worlds collapsed around them and they realized they had reached their life’s end?
    I wonder why all traces of their existence were covered up, hidden from us so we could not compare their dismal plight to that of our own. Who did that?

    • Robert Barricklow on October 24, 2022 at 9:18 pm

      Good questions.
