Life on Earth originally came from Mars, new study suggests.

"According to new research presented at the annual Goldschmidt geochemistry conference in Florence, there is compelling evidence that life on Earth was kick-started by a meteorite from Mars bearing simple, RNA-based organisms. Furthermore, the same research also indicates that the ancient, primordial surface of Earth would’ve been inhospitable to the formation of the building blocks of life (RNA, DNA, and proteins) — therefore, the only way that life could’ve begun more than three billion years ago is if it arrived here from Mars."

Atlantis Discovered? New Mysterious Underwater Pyramid Found Near Azores Island

Was it home of the advanced prehistoric civilization known as Atlantis? A new mysterious giant underwater pyramid was discovered between the islands of Terceira and São Miguel in the Azores Islands.

Sailor Diocleciano Smith has discovered, based on bathymetry readings, a 60 meters high and 8000 meters wide underwater pyramid near the Bank De João de Castro, between the islands of Terceira and São Miguel. The mysterious building is around forty meters below water and aligned with the four cardinal compass directions, similar to the Great Pyramid of Giza.
Is this newly discovered underwater pyramid man-made or natural?

The discoverer doesn’t believe the pyramid is of natural origin. This matter is already being investigated with the support of the Portuguese Navy.

Are these the remains of the lost City of Atlantis?

Legends of an advanced prehistoric civilization know as Atlantis have been around since the beginning of history, but previously those who searched for it were divided whether or not it was located near the Azores, South America or elsewhere. From as far back as Plato it was suggested the original builders of the pyramids lived west of Gibraltar, but findings of Machu Picchu, and other curiosities in the Mediterranean, led people to believe it was on the other side of the Atlantic.

The Azores are a chain of nine volcanic islands in three main groups that are 930 miles west of Lisbon. They are above what is known as a geological triple junction where the North American, Eurasian, and African tectonic plates meet. They were recolonized in 1941, but artifacts have been found suggesting they had been previously inhabited. Those artifacts are thought to have predated Christ by a few thousand years, but the location of the pyramid has been below water for 20,000 years since the last ice age.

Legends also persisted of Atlantis, Sete Cidades (Kingdoms of the Seven Cities), the Terras of São Brandão, the Ilhas Aofortunadas (The Fortunate Islands), the Ilha da Brasil (the Island of Brasil), Antília, the Ilhas Azuis (Blue Islands), the Terra dos Bacalhaus (Land of Codfish), and charts appeared between 1351 and 1439 of several groupings of islands with various names. The first association between the modern island of Terceira and these stories, was that of the island of Brasil; it first appears as Insula de Brasil in the Venetian map of Andrea Bianco (1436), attached to one of the larger islands of a group of islands in the Atlantic.

Iran Says 'Tall, White' Space Aliens Control America

Documents leaked by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden conclusively prove that the United States has been ruled by a race of tall, white space aliens who also assisted the rise of Nazi Germany in the 1930s.


These revelations about our alien overlords might not cost you any sleep. But the part that should concern you a tad is that the UFO story was just published by the Fars News Agency, the English-language news service of Iran, a nation that may be very close to acquiring nuclear weapons.

This being a crazy conspiracy theory, naturally the Russians are behind it. The alleged alien invasion was revealed in an alleged report by Russia’s FSB spy agency, which found “incontrovertible proof’ that an ‘alien/extraterrestrial intelligence agenda’ is driving U.S. domestic and international policy, and has been doing so since at least 1945,” said the Iranian news service.

Fars apparently got the story from a hard-core conspiracy site called whatdoesitmean.com. Here is the gist of the whatdoesitmean.com story as best I understand it (or as the alien mind-control lasers allow me to understand it):

Snowden, who has been given asylum in Russia, leaked documents that a race of extraterestrial “tall whites” arrived on Earth, helped Nazi Germany build a fleet of advanced submarines in the 1930s, and then met in 1954 with President Dwight Eisenhower “where the ‘secret regime’ currently ruling over America was established.”

“Most disturbingly, this FSB report warns, is that the ‘Tall White’ agenda being implemented by the ‘secret regime’ ruling the United States calls for the creation of a global electronic surveillance system meant to hide all true information about their presence here on earth as they enter into what one of Snowden’s documents calls the ‘final phase’ of their end plan for total assimilation and world rule.”

Meanwhile, the U.S. government is embroiled in a “cataclysmic” power struggle between President Obama, who heads the alien shadow government, and some unknown force that opposed the U.S.-alien alliance. “Most to be feared by Russian policy makers and authorities, this [FSB] report concludes, is if those opposing the ‘Tall White’ ‘secret regime’ ruled over by Obama have themselves aligned with another alien-extraterrestrial power themselves.”

Any good conspiracy theory needs a patina of truth, a bit of intellectual cover to camouflage the craziness. In this case, the whatdoesitmean.com/Fars story cites Paul Hellyer, the 1960s Canadian defense minister who is now a fervent UFO activist.

This is almost a funny story, until one remembers that Iran is a moderately powerful nation of 76 million people, with a possible nuclear arsenal, relatively large conventional military power, extensive terrorist capabilities through its intelligence agencies and Hezbollah, and a fundamentalist government that could easily engage in hostilities against the U.S. Laugh if you will at conspiracy theories, but they offer explanatory value for their believers, a way of making sense of why things happen, even if it is a funhouse-mirror explanation of the world. The Fars News Agency is reportedly affiliated with Iran’s influential Revolutionary Guards, which suggests that either Iran is either desperate to smear the U.S. any way it can, or there indeed is a very peculiar view of U.S. politics at the highest levels of the Iranian government.

If there is a bright spot to this as well as a funny bone, it’s that the goal of U.S. policy is to contain and neutralize Iranian influence. So, perhaps it’s not necessarily a bad thing that Tehran thinks its main adversary is backed by the power of space aliens. It’s good to have friends in high places, even if they have two heads.

In 10-31-1974, Frank Zappa sort of wrote:
Ladies and gentlemen, we have a song for you now, that deals with the delicate and distressing subject of flying saucers, a phenomenon that has plagued 20th century man for God knows how long. We are not going to pretend that this song contains any real aspects of the flying saucer question, however it does point its [???] little finger in the direction of an area on the top of the Andes mountains…

FZ:

Hello, folks!

This thing wiggles too much.

Hey, that's more like it, mm-mm-mmh, yes, okay?

Bruce Fowler on trombone.

Napoleon Murphy Brock on tenor sax.

And vocals.

Ruth Underwood on percussion.

?:

All right!

FZ:

Okay.

The gong always gets 'em.

Ralph Humphrey on drums.

Chester Thompson on drums.

Tom Fowler on bass.

George Duke on keyboards.

Alright. Now, let me get myself tuned up and then we'll do a suave program for you.

[Owen], a shade more sax in the monitor. Just turn it up, a little bit.

Girl From The Audience:

Hi, Frank!

FZ:

Hi!

Alright. Well, Ian's busy. He's uh, he's with his parents in uhm, uh . . .

Audience Member:

Yugoslavia.

FZ:

Florida. But he'll be back in town soon, ladies and gentlemen. Yeah.

Now, we're gonna open up with some— Hey! Brian Krokus, ladies and gentlemen, right back there! He is our mixer, and of course there's another mixer out in the truck and you can't see him but he's awfully cute, his name is Kerry McNabb and he can hear us talking about him, but . . .

Well, you're missing the best part of what's going out— on out in the truck.

We're gonna open our program with a song that deals with the subject of the possibility of extra-terrestrial beings visiting this planet a long time ago.

Now, some of you might have read a book called Chariots Of The Gods by Erich Von Däniken, and there's a little thing in there, it's a picture of this area in the Andes called the plains of Nazca, ladies and gentlemen. And there's these carvings on the top of the rock that you don't know what they're supposed to be for. It doesn't look like it would have been a road, because it doesn't go anywhere, and there's a bunch of 'em, and some people think, well maybe it was a landing field. But the carvings are very, very old and they're very, very big, you know, indicating that the people who made them were highly, uh, well, they were, heh heh . . . They really had their ____ together for the things that carved in the rock.

And it's possible that if they were landing fields, that the things that landed on them were NOT OF THIS EARTH.

And so we have a song, which features the lovely voice of Mr. George Duke, and the name of this song is "Inca Roads." Take it away, George . . .

It’s definitely a space craft’ — This man says he has photo that proves alien life

By Aileen Robertson, 4 March 2016

A Fife man says he had a close encounter with an extraterrestrial aircraft — and has the photo to prove it.


Image

John Macdonald says a UFO hovered above his head in the night-time Perthshire sky, making the noise of "a thousand hoovers".

The quick-thinking Fifer managed to take a snap of the aerial object before it disappeared “in the beat of a heart”.

The 65-year-old from Dysart is convinced he saw an extraterrestrial aircraft at rural Rossie Ochil, to the south of Perth.

“It’s definitely a spacecraft of some sort,” he told The Courier. “I don’t know whether I frightened it or not with the flash of the camera, because in the beat of a heart it was gone.”

It happened at around 11pm on Sunday February 28 when he was driving home after visiting a friend.

He described how the noise drowned out the sound of his jeep.

“My jeep is quite noisy, but this sounded like a thousand hoovers,” said John, who estimates he was 50 to 70 yards from the object.

“When I phoned my friend, who’s a shepherd, he said ‘don’t worry about it, we get this up here quite a lot’.

“I always thought there was something out there, but had never seen anything until then.”

Although it bears a slight resemblance to the spacecraft in the science fiction film Close Encounters of the Third Kind, the flying object is said to most likely have been a drone.

Use of the unmanned aircraft, which can be deployed for aerial photography, has increased in recent years both for commercial and leisure purposes.

The Civil Aviation Authority said someone flying a drone in the hours of darkness could be in breach of operating guidelines.

Drones must not be flown higher than 400 feet or within 164 feet of people, vehicles, buildings or structures.

A spokesman for the Civil Aviation Authority said: “It’s possible to fly a drone in darkness, but you have to keep it in your line of sight at all times.

“If you are flying something in darkness it is difficult to keep it in your visual line of sight. Even though it has lights, you won’t be able to see it sufficiently well to control it.

“At night, you can’t see obstacles because the obstacles aren’t lit. You could argue that this was a rural location, and this is not such a problem, but it still is.”
