How and when was Stonehenge built? Who's the mind behind it? We may never really know, but here are the most likely answers.
Stonehenge is one of the United Kingdom's most treasured monuments and one of the world's most mysterious ancient sites. Its enormous stone structures, and massive size, have attracted scientists and tourists for centuries, but why and how was it built?
Here we will attempt to answer these deceptively simple questions, and explore some other interesting information about the site.
Who built Stonehenge and why?
Stonehenge is one of the world's most iconic and mysterious ancient monuments. It was built on what is today Salisbury Plain in Wiltshire, England.
Given its size and scale, it must have been a site of incredible importance to the people who built it. But why exactly did they bother making such an enormous effort?
The problem is we can only really make educated guesses as to why these ancient people built it. Suggestions range from an enormous celestial calendar to an ancient druid temple.
However, the most compelling explanation comes from more recent excavations. Large amounts of human bones have been found at the site, most of which show signs of cremation.
This appears to indicate that the site was a highly sophisticated ceremonial burial ground. Other discoveries also seem to support this theory too.
"In 2010 archaeologists discovered a second stone circle located just over a mile away from the more famous landmark. Dubbed “Bluestonehenge” for the 25 Welsh bluestones that originally made up the site, this secondary monument provides more evidence that Stonehenge could have been part of a huge memorial complex where high-ranking individuals took part in elaborate rituals and ceremonies honoring the dead. Yet as no written records exist, this theory—like all those about Stonehenge’s purpose—can only remain a matter of speculation." - History.com.
When was Stonehenge built?
Stonehenge was built between 3000 BC with major additions occurring between 2500 and 2200 BC. Other minor alterations also appear to have continued at the site until around 1500 BC.
This places its construction between the Neolithic and Bronze age.
How was Stonehenge built?
Given the age, size, and scale of Stonehenge, it is wondrous thinking just how people in the Neolithic age were able to build such a thing. Without the benefit of metal tools and modern construction equipment, somehow they managed to build something that remains largely intact today.
Unsurprisingly there have been various theories put forward as to just how it was done, but the general consensus is as follows. We have used English Heritage as the main source for this information as they are the de facto custodians and authorities of the site today.
We see them everywhere. People rocking NASA shirts like they’re some sort of rocket scientist. Like the energy drink in their right-hand and the genetically engineered food in their left somehow makes them smarter if they wear a NASA shirt. NASA has become popular as a clothing brand, why is that? Let’s take a minute to ask why and to question the origin of this “Space” organization that turns out to be quite, well, spacey.
NASA was founded July 29th, 1958. Since then billions of dollars have poured in funded by the US Federal Government. In fact, this year alone NASA had a budget of $19.9 billion dollars. What else happened on July 29th?
In 1921 Adolf Hitler became the leader of the National Socialist German Workers Party, on you guessed it, July 29th. NASA was founded on the same day 37 years later, that Hitler came into power on. Strange coincidence? This was the first tripwire that made me dig deeper. If you’re read up at all you’ll know that Hitler had quite the team of scientists and engineers who were creating rockets and biological warfare weapons.
Wait until you hear the full story.
1 of 365 days is 1/5th of 1% in terms of probabilities. That’s unlikely to happen. It’s like beating Russian Roulette over and over again. That just doesn’t happen. Strangely enough, Neo’s passport in the film the matrix has a one date (same probabilities as above) that we all know too.
About 20 billion dollars goes into space programs each year. That’s a lot of money. To put into perspective how much money this is, take world hunger.
$30 billion dollars a year would end world hunger, according to the United Nations. That means the size of NASA’s budget each year could feed 2 out of 3 hungry people worldwide. If NASA didn’t exist and that money was rerouted, we could almost end world hunger. To date over $600 billion has been spent on space exploration, yet we haven’t made it “back to the moon” since 1969.
Let’s look at what NASA is doing, the history of its early beginnings and what your tax dollars do.
According to History.com: NASA has sponsored space expeditions, both human and mechanical, that have yielded vital information about the solar system and universe. It has also launched numerous earth-orbiting satellites that have been instrumental in everything from weather forecasting to navigation to communications.
Please correct me if I’m wrong, but doesn’t Google Maps and T-mobile have weather and communications locked down?
Someone please tell me.. what information has NASA given us to improve our quality of life?
Government Funded: Operation PaperclipOperation paperclip was an operation run by the US Government. The JIOA (joint intelligence objectives agency) carried this out by special agents of the army. This operation brought in 1,600 Nazi scientists, engineers and technicians from Germany. Wernher von Braun and his V-2 rocket team were recruited from Germany to America for employment within the US Government. Most of which were members or leaders from the Nazi party.
A factory at which Von Braun worked was reported to kill the 5 slowest working Jews each week. International organizations alike agree that if he were alive today he would be convicted of war crimes.
Legends of ancient cities that disappeared under the waves, been lost beneath desert sands, or buried beneath centuries of vegetation are the stuff of legend, but sometimes these legends became reality when they are rediscovered after centuries. From the ancient homelands, to jungle cities of gold and riches, we examine legendary cities that have were rediscovered. These enduring mysteries are embedded in human history, perhaps none capture the imagination as strongly as lost civilizations.

As our March 2012 article titled “Pyramids of Glass Submerged in the Bermuda Triangle” continues to go viral after nearly three years, we just received a comment on the article and thought we’d share. It’s coordinates to what appears to be a three-sided pyramid shaped structure in the Bermuda Triangle. (See Below for screenshot)
“Check this coordinates on Google Earth (or Maps): 26.44955066392238, -69.10022079043691 It’s a 3 sides pyramid (20km Area!) at middle of Bermuda Triangle, is marked by a gigantic crux formed by what i guess is tectonic failures, i dare you to find the gigantic crux! Check it quickly before the Censor comes!.” -Jhollman on ApparentlyApparel.com

A controversial documentary that was nearing completion about the central government taking over society. The director and writer of the film David Crowley, 29, was found dead in his apartment in an apparent ‘murder suicide’ along with his wife, Komel, 28, and their 5-year-old daughter on January 18 2015.
The nature of his death has aroused suspicion as many saw no reason to suspect he would do anything like that. A friend said that from the last time they spoke in December his demeanor seemed "contradictory to a man who was about to kill his family and himself." Given the nature of the films Crowley was making it is very strange that he died in the way that he did. The deaths are currently under investigation.
The film was trying to challenge the current world order the monetary system and martial law. The sensitive nature of the subject has led many to believe that this was a plot to suppress the film but the rough cut called "Gray State: The Rise" has been leaked online through multiple sources. Watch it below before it gets taken down again.
The synopsis reads: “The world reels with the turmoil of war, geological disaster, and economic collapse, while Americans continue to submerge themselves in illusions of safety and immunity. While rights are sold for security, the federal government, swollen with power, begins a systematic takeover of liberty in order to bring about a New World Order.
"Fearmongering, terrorism, police state, martial law, war, arrest, internment, hunger, oppression, violence, resistance -- these are the new terms by which Americans define their existence.
"Neighbor is turned against neighbour as the value of the dollar plunges to zero, food supplies are depleted, and everyone is a terror suspect. There are arrests. Disappearances. Bio attacks. Even rumors of concentration camps on American soil.”
The Star Tribune reported that: “Several neighbors said they thought Crowley may have been a military or ex-military member, and that he had close-cropped hair and tattoos. One neighbor said he thought Crowley worked at home doing screenwriting of some kind, and that his wife worked as a dietician.”
The documentary is an incendiary look at the state of the world and it highlights all of the issues that we face as a society, the power of information is the most useful tool for us all to use.
