Early in the spring of 1986 I began a year-long pilgrimage around Europe by bicycle. Over four seasons I cycled through eleven countries to visit, study and photograph more than 135 holy places. In succeeding years I traveled to Europe several additional times, visiting other countries and their sacred sites. These travels took me to the sacred places of Megalithic Greek and Celtic cultures as well as to the pilgrimage sites of medieval and contemporary Christianity. For many thousands of years our ancestors have been visiting and venerating the power places of Europe. One culture after another has often frequented the same power places. The story of how these magical places were discovered and used is filled with myths of cosmic and cometary induced world destroying cataclysms, astronomers and sages, and nature spirits and angels. Misconceptions about the so-called Ice Age and its glacier coverage Before beginning our discussion of the megalithic use of power places in ancient Europe we should first address certain misconceptions regarding the cause of the transition between the Paleolithic and Neolithic eras. According to conventional beliefs (deriving from incorrect assumptions of the Uniformitarian theory of Charles Lyell and the Ice Age or glacial theory of Louis Agassiz in the early 1800's) enormous glaciers once covered vast regions of the northern hemisphere. These conventional beliefs state that the levels of the world's oceans were lower during the glacier age because of all the water supposedly frozen up in the polar ice cap. Between 13,000 and 8000 BC the vast glaciers melted and the levels of the world oceans rose by 120 meters. The effect of this glacial melting and sea level rise on archaic European life marked the end of the Paleolithic and the beginning of the Neolithic.
This idea of a so-called Ice Age, with enormous glaciers covering vast areas of the northern hemisphere, has been debated by numerous scientific studies in the fields of geology, paleontology, biology, zoology, climatology, anthropology and mythology. Readers interested in learning more about these studies and their revelations regarding the Ice Age and its less-than-previously-assumed glacier coverage, as well as alternative dates for the occurrence of the Ice Age, will enjoy the books Cataclysm: Compelling Evidence of a Cosmic Catastrophe in 9500 BC, by Allan & Delair and Ice Age Civilizations, by James Nienhuis. The factual material presented in this scholarly book is slowly making its way into university courses and text books around the world, thereby rewriting our understanding of early Neolithic times.
Cosmic and cometary induced cataclysms - 9500, 7640, 3150 and 1198 BC Prior to embarking on a discussion regarding the discovery and use of power places by humans during Neolithic times there is another - and critically important - matter that must be explored first. This concerns the pass-by and actual impact of cosmic and cometary objects at four distinct periods in the prehistoric past. To begin to explore this matter let us first refer to the enigmatic writings of the 4th century BC Greek philosopher Plato. In the Timaeus dialogues, these being a record of discussions between the Greek statesman Solon and an Egyptian priest, Plato report the following:
"You Greeks are all children. You have no belief rooted in the old tradition and no knowledge hoary with age. And the reason is this. There have been and will be many different calamities to destroy mankind, the greatest of them by fire and water, lesser ones by countless other means. You remember only one deluge, though there have been many."
What might these calamities be which Plato's Egyptian informants are referring to? Evidence has accumulated from a variety of scientific disciplines which demonstrate that a massive cosmic object (probably a portion of an astronomically-near supernova explosion) passed close by the earth in approximately 9500 BC. This cosmic event caused a worldwide cataclysm of enormous proportions, including massive shifting of the earth's surface, devastating volcanic activity, mega-tsunami waves, subsidence of regional landmasses, and mass extinctions of both animals and humans. In this regard it is vitally important to note that many of the geological and biological effects previously attributed to the hypothesized glacier movements of ice age times could NOT have been caused by the slow movement of ice but were in fact caused by the rapid and vast displacement of oceanic bodies of water (this being caused by the irresistible gravitational pull of the enormous cosmic object passing by the earth). Additionally, the species-wide animal extinctions caused by this event occurred far beyond the geographical boundaries set for the 'Ice Age glaciations' by orthodox theorists.
The shifting of the earth's surface, termed crustal displacement by its primary theorist, Charles Hapgood, was also studied by Einstein who reported, "One can hardly doubt that significant shifts of the earth's crusts have taken place repeatedly and within a short time."
To read more about the cosmic object pass-by and the ensuing crustal displacement of 9500 BC, refer to Cataclysm by D.S. Allan & J.B. Delair, The Atlantis Blueprint by Colin Wilson and Rand Flem-Ath, and Catastrophobia by Barbara Hand Clow.
Approximately 2000 years later, in roughly 7640 BC, a cometary object sped towards the earth. This time, however, rather than passing by the earth as the cosmic object of 9500 BC had done, the cometary object actually entered the atmosphere, broke into seven pieces, and impacted the earth at known locations on the planet's oceans. The following map shows the general location of each of the seven impacts.

(AA) On this official government website is a press conference from 1997 and this is Secretary of Defense William S. Cohen speaking. (http://www.defense.gov/transcripts/transcript.aspx?transcriptid=674)
Cohen answers the press saying, quote:
"Others are engaging even in an eco- type of terrorism whereby they can alter the climate, set off earthquakes, volcanoes remotely through the use of electromagnetic waves. So there are plenty of ingenious minds out there that are at work finding ways in which they can wreak terror upon other nations. It's real, and that's the reason why we have to intensify our efforts, and that's why this is so important."
"Scientist" Michio Kaku (this man is plastered all over our television) telling you all about his Kabbalah belief system (same one that Einstein practiced and followed) and evolution of man into God's. Of couse what is this superhuman evolution based on, besides the Kabbalah (which is just Luciferianism as I show in my other videos)? Nothing...which is exactly what this man has contributed to society. He says that anyone against a New World Order and this new "scientific religion" is a terrorist. Somehow Madonna (Kabbalah) and Arnold Schwarzenegger who wears skull and bone belts on Magazine covers and speaks at the Bohemian Grove (google it) have something to do with his rambling. I wonder what...Anyways, let's get to the movie...

Good morning. Here is an updated look at the visible solar disk on Monday. Solar activity declined to very low levels this morning. Region 2157 in the southwest quadrant continues to decay as it approaches the west limb. In the northwest quadrant, region 2158 is stable as it also turns towards the west limb. All other visible numbered regions are quiet and not considered a threat for strong solar flares. No Earth directed coronal mass ejections were observed during the past day.
We also have today in history for September 15, 2014 in our daily report. Thanks for viewing!~ AA
Good morning. Here is a quick solar update on Saturday morning. Solar activity declined to low levels with only minor C-Flares detected. Both regions 2157 and 2158 continue to slowly decay, but will remain a threat for an isolated M-Class event. Elsewhere, region 2164 in the southern hemisphere is showing new spot growth, but remained quiet during the past day. A bright coronal mass ejection (CME) was observed on Friday in LASCO C2 imagery, but so far appears to be headed away from our planet.
As of this update, the solar wind speed as measured by the ACE spacecraft is 584.7 km/s, and the Bz component of the interplanetary magnetic field is pointing north +13.3 nT. Several hours of geomagnetic storming was observed yesterday evening following the X1.6 CME impact, including a brief period of Strong G3 storming at higher latitudes (KP=7). A geomagnetic storm watch remains in effect for today, although the Bz/IMF component would have to switch to a south pointing orientation for this to become more likely.
The anticipated coronal mass ejection (CME) generated by the X1.6 solar flare on September 10th swept past Earth at 15:55 UTC Friday. Solar Wind speeds as measured by the ACE spacecraft increased from 433.2 km/s, to 671.8 km/s. A Geomagnetic Sudden Impulse measuring 43 nT was detected by the ground based magnetometer in Boulder, Colorado. Moderate G2 geomagnetic storming was observed at high latitudes, with a brief period of Strong G3 storming detected as well. The Bz component of the interplanetary magnetic field (IMF) has since pointed north, a condition that is known to suppress geomagnetic activity. A geomagnetic storm watch will remain in effect on Saturday.
Also in today's alternative news report are highlights of this day in history: Israel and the Palestinians sign a major accord; President George W. Bush takes responsibility for the federal response to Hurricane Katrina; Attica prison uprising ends; Rapper Tupac Shakur dies. (Sept. 13)
Good morning folks. Here is an updated look at the visible solar disk on Sunday. Solar activity declined to low levels with only C-Class flares detected. Region 2159 produced a C7.5 flare at 02:04 UTC and was associated with a non Earth directed coronal mass ejection (CME). A number of low level C-Flares are being observed this morning around region 2157. Both regions 2157 and 2158 continue to undergo changes in formation and magnetic complexity as they rotate into a better Earth facing position. An isolated moderate to strong solar flare will remain a possibility during the next 24-48 hours.
A weak shock passage observed on Saturday did not lead to a noteworthy increase in geomagnetic activity. Geomagnetic storming is unlikely.
