25 Most Intense Archaeological Discoveries In Human History

12 posts in this topic

One thing you will realize by the end of this list is that people, at least in the past, were very fond of cannibalism, sacrifice, and torture. As a case in point, not long ago as several archaeologists were searching through the sewers beneath a Roman/Byzantine bathhouse in Israel when they came across something terrifying…baby bones, and lots of them. For whatever reason someone in the bathhouse above apparently felt compelled to dispose of hundreds of babies in the sewer below.

Baby bones story reminds of the bible scripture, when Harod, orders his soldiers to kill off all the first born babies boys.

Roman women who didn't want one more baby routinely threw newborns into the river. It was a common sight, hundreds a day according to one article I read.

While excavating a dry lake bed in Motala, Sweden archaeologists came across several skulls that had stakes driven directly through their craniums. As if that weren’t bad enough one of the skulls even had pieces of the others skulls crammed up inside it. Whatever happened their 8,000 years ago wasn’t pretty.

Creepy. I had never heard of this one.

Voynich Manuscript

A mysterious, undeciphered manuscript dating to the 15th or 16th century.

 

Written in Central Europe at the end of the 15th or during the 16th century, the origin, language, and date of the Voynich Manuscript—named after the Polish-American antiquarian bookseller, Wilfrid M. Voynich, who acquired it in 1912—are still being debated as vigorously as its puzzling drawings and undeciphered text. Described as a magical or scientific text, nearly every page contains botanical, figurative, and scientific drawings of a provincial but lively character, drawn in ink with vibrant washes in various shades of green, brown, yellow, blue, and red.

Based on the subject matter of the drawings, the contents of the manuscript falls into six sections:

1) botanicals containing drawings of 113 unidentified plant species;

2) astronomical and astrological drawings including astral charts with radiating circles, suns and moons, Zodiac symbols such as fish (Pisces), a bull (Taurus), and an archer (Sagittarius), nude females emerging from pipes or chimneys, and courtly figures;

3) a biological section containing a myriad of drawings of miniature female nudes, most with swelled abdomens, immersed or wading in fluids and oddly interacting with interconnecting tubes and capsules;

4) an elaborate array of nine cosmological medallions, many drawn across several folded folios and depicting possible geographical forms;

5) pharmaceutical drawings of over 100 different species of medicinal herbs and roots portrayed with jars or vessels in red, blue, or green, and

6) continuous pages of text, possibly recipes, with star-like flowers marking each entry in the margins.

For a complete physical description and foliation, including missing leaves, see the Voynich catalog record.

History of the Collection

Like its contents, the history of ownership of the Voynich manuscript is contested and filled with some gaps.

The codex belonged to Emperor Rudolph II of Germany (Holy Roman Emperor, 1576-1612), who purchased it for 600 gold ducats and believed that it was the work of Roger Bacon. It is very likely that Emperor Rudolph acquired the manuscript from the English astrologer John Dee (1527-1608). Dee apparently owned the manuscript along with a number of other Roger Bacon manuscripts. In addition, Dee stated that he had 630 ducats in October 1586, and his son noted that Dee, while in Bohemia, owned "a booke...containing nothing butt Hieroglyphicks, which booke his father bestowed much time upon: but I could not heare that hee could make it out." 

Emperor Rudolph seems to have given the manuscript to Jacobus Horcicky de Tepenecz (d. 1622), an exchange based on the inscription visible only with ultraviolet light on folio 1r which reads: "Jacobi de Tepenecz." Johannes Marcus Marci of Cronland presented the book to Athanasius Kircher (1601-1680) in 1666. In 1912, Wilfred M. Voynich purchased the manuscript from the Jesuit College at Frascati near Rome. In 1969, the codex was given to the Beinecke Library by H. P. Kraus, who had purchased it from the estate of Ethel Voynich, Wilfrid Voynich's widow.

When people behave badly, they're often compared to animals. Animals should be offended by the unfair comparison. No animal has ever come close to human cruelty.

Abraham was willing to sacrifice his own son to Yahweh. Who know how many infants were killed before the modern era? Millions, no doubt.

Religion, birth control, infanticide in wars -- were common for thousands of years.  Babies were offered by their own parents in some cases, to be put in the arms of a statue over a burning fire. The lucky ones had their throats slit first.

Let's not pretend this is a relic from the past. Satanists, or Saturn worshipers, still commit child torture and sacrifices as part of their rituals and orgies.

​I'll bet you didn't know that your friend cryptic mole has a talent for cryptology and cipher code breaking. He already decoded much of the manuscript, but not so much by the text, but mainly by the images. He said that script was almost impossible to break, but the images told the story by their color codes or something like that. There was another guy who came on to his thread at LOP and said he also did what cm does, and he was sent to decipher the cryptic messages that cm placed everywhere all over the internet. It was all interesting as he said he never saw anyone with such abilities, and that it seemed almost other worldly. If you go to cm thread http://lunaticoutpost.com/showthread.php?tid=301660&highlight=time+travel and start looking somewhere in the middle after cm left the thread, you see this guy who comes in and starts talking about cm. This guy was able to decipher some of cm writing, and much of it was about the VM. This sounded crazy, but he said that the VM was a book about plants from mars and which were brought here to earth, and you know what? When I read what this guy said, I believed it!

​I'll take a look at that thread, thanks :) Maybe mole will chime in on here when he gets chance too.

This is what that other posted said about Cryptic Mole:

I will keep this as short as possiblle, but this would normally take many pages to explain to everyone, but stick with me here as what I'm about to tell you is very interesting and very involved.

Im a professional cryptologist, and was sent to GLP first, and to LOP afterwards because when Cryptic Mole posted his name, the word “cryptic” is automatically picked up by computers for further investigation.

There were two areas of our research that we were looking at. One was CM's future predictions, and the second was all his other information about things like the moon, mars, time travel, and all the others.

We only started by looking at his cryptic verses which we alreay knew was intentionally done to cover, but draw interest to the readers, but at first we didn't really think he was a true cryptologist, and able to place hidden code until we started picking his verses apart with advanced software. What we found was very amazing. Not only was he a professional cryptologist as well, but even I have to admit, and even after being in this field of work for 30 years, I was taken back by what he wrote.

Here's the kicker. Most of what he wrote was too advanced for even me to figure out. That being said, one might think I didn't understand some of it because he may have intentionally mislead us, but that wasn't the case at all. We found in his code the words “ Voynich Manuscript”, but which as a normal reader would had never seen that, we as cryptologist are very familiar with this term, and its one that drives us crazy.

I want you to look up “Voynich Manuscript” as this is a book written in code that no one has ever been able to decipher in many many years of research. This is what he wrote in code about that secret book. “Green pools of green blood known as chlorophyll, and which is the blood of all life both large and unseen. Auxin root systems have the fire and spark of life within them, and can cause the internals to live endlessly, and with 100% rejuvenation.”

His codes explain secrets of the universe, and the universe that is your body, and how they are both one and the same, and part of an endless and designed system by, as he calls it “The One.”

There is so much more I could tell, and that we also found hid “little birdie” threads as well. My God!

Sad part is this will all be filed away in some secret and hidden warehouse somewhere for future research in about 50-60 years.

You just couldn't resist posting this here, now could you?
