Michael Cremo and Today

History is to learn from

Michael Cremo, also known by his devotional name Drutakarmā Dāsa, is an American freelance researcher who identifies himself as a Vedic creationist and an alternative archaeologist. He has made some very interesting discoveries from which we can arrive at the possibility that humanity has been around for millions of years and over different periods developed basic metallurgy and similar technologies.

There is a possibility that the Egyptian pyramids were constructed 35,000 or so years ago to produce electricity for global distribution. On the other hand these evidences could represent that alien cultures have resided here and either died out or departed. Certainly some of the unidentifiable metallic objects, giants and other phenomena provide interesting food

Pan, The God of Joy

A God of gaiety and joy

Published on: 5 Sep 2013 updated 01-2019 The most famous image of Pan is of him running through the hills and fields playing his ‘pan pipes’ and seducing every female which serves to warm hearts and loins.

Pan is known for his wit, charm and sexual prowess and he is often depicted with an erect phallus. Diogenes of Sinope, speaking in jest, related a myth of Pan learning masturbation from his father, Hermes, and teaching the habit to shepherds.

Pan’s greatest conquest was that of the moon goddess Selene. He accomplished this by wrapping himself in a sheepskin to hide his hairy black goat form, and drew her down from the sky into the

How Will the World End?

Many say the end is nigh

Doomsday forecasters and prophets like Nostradamus have forever been predicting the end of the world. The current end of days forecast was for December 2012, but that failed to happen yet extinction seems inevitable to many.

There are many theories about how life on Earth may end, they include being struck by an asteroid or comet, gamma-ray bursts from some far off dying sun, a shift in the Earth’s magnetic poles or global warming, a fire that most of us are adding fuel to.

We know that Earth has a finite life as does our entire solar system, but this life is counted in billions of years and it seems logical that if we

The Question of Truth

And that truth will set you free

As children growing up we are taught to speak the truth as we see it, yet we learn to see that truth is often a matter of perspective and in some situations where a number of people have witnessed the same event, their telling is different because they all saw from a different perspective, a major problem when the law is involved. So what is referred to as the truth today is a convenient concept that most of us can agree upon.

This most of us has come to distinguish between various truths in relation to what we choose to believe this. The Christians believe that there heavenly guard is real even though

The legacy of Colonialism

A grand deception and a corruption of knowledge

According to wikipedia and many dictionaries, (1.) Colonialism is the policy of a nation seeking to extend or retain its authority over other people or territories, generally with the aim of developing or exploiting them to the benefit of the colonizing country. Then it says (2.) “and helping the colonies modernize in terms defined by the colonizers, especially in economics, religion and health.”

Buddha's Wife

Finding meaning in the legend

There are many legends of Buddha’s wife, some close to truth and some completely fabricated. But it’s an accepted fact that he was married and left his life in the palace sometime after his marriage.

This is not mentioned in the Tipiṭaka or Pali canon, the collection of primary Pali language texts which form the doctrinal foundation of Theravada Buddhism. In the Tipitaka she is only ever referred to as Rāhulamātā, that is ‘Rāhula’s mother.’ In the earliest reference to her, she is called Bhaddakaccānā, which may be her real name (Bv.26,15) whereas Yasodharā is an honorific title meaning ‘Fame-bearer’ and became the name of legend. Other than this, there is almost no information

The Philippines stands up to the world

The USA has dominated the world for the past 60 or so years, it’s economic, military and social policies have been forced on most nations and often at the point of a gun. The Philippines is no exception, US troops evicted the Spanish over 100 years ago giving the Filipinos hope of independence.
