Links Between India and the Americas

A history many are reluctant to consider

As much as many modern archaeologists and researchers deny the possibility of ancient connections between India and the Americas, there is a massive amount of evidence indicating that it was so. It’s tragic that so much was lost under Islamic and European colonialism and that so much of Indian history has been reduced to legend.

There have been recent publications concerning DNA evidence supporting Hindu migration into Australia five thousand years ago and yet many modern historians downplay and sometimes continue to deny the fact that in this civilisation encompassed all of Asia from the Mediterranean to the Pacific Islands. We know from Angkor Wat in Cambodia that a Hindu civilisation flourished but

Great Nations of The America's

The spread of empire and the destruction of civilisations

It is said that over 100 million native Americans died during colonisation.

History books traditionally depict the pre-Columbus Americas as a pristine wilderness where small native villages lived in harmony with nature. But scientific evidence tells a very different story: When Columbus stepped ashore in 1492, millions of people were already living there, North and South America were occupied by small tribes, nation states in the US and First Nations in Canada.

America wasn’t exactly a New World, but a very old one whose inhabitants had built a vast infrastructure of cities, orchards, canals and causeways. In Indian history, there

Farewell Fidel

Viva La Cuba

Fidel Alejandro Castro Ruz 1926 – 2016 led a daring revolution and protected his country from the mob.

In the week following the passing of Fidel Castro, much of the world’s media was filled with scornful opinions. Some deride him because he was a nonconformist, or because it’s reported that he has 14 children and was something of a womaniser. Others deride him because he kept his country from progressing, but all of these people are largely ignorant and self glorifying themselves in their own opinions.

In the era of the revolution, the USA was hard at work replacing democratically elected governments all over the world with tyrannical kiss-arse regimes that allowed US corporations to drain their

Oh Rio

Setting the tone for modern Olympics

Egypt vs Germany. An Islamic reporter stated that “Allah granted the shameless near-naked harlots victory over the modest women of Islam, 2-0. No doubt the Jews are responsible.”

In the wake of a coup d’├ętat and a great deal of public unrest, the preparations for the Olympic Games were far behind schedule as the country wasn’t quite prepared for the enormity of this undertaking. Some athletes who arrived early were target of criminal gangs and forced to leave.

The main body of athletes arrived to find workers still attending to tasks in their rooms like with exposed wiring and bathrooms not working. Then many of the competition facilities weren’t quite complete and

Travel in a world at war

Updated from 2016

Gaia – The World Tree. How do you want to live?

Why travel and how to stay safe? Actually very few countries are safe, you can get shot or blown up in almost any country and even in relatively safe countries like New Zealand, many foreign drivers die in road accidents through their own negligence.

With the spread of terrorism, some people are becoming afraid just to go to work let alone travel. The violence the Middle East continues to escalate with recent attacks in Paris, Egypt and Turkey as Europe struggles to maintain law and order due to the influx of refugees.

Therefore, wherever you go in the world your own safety

Zika virus

The ‘new’ fear and concern for the Rio Olympics

The mosquito that spreads Zika Virus, Dengue Fever, Yellow Fever, Japanese Encephalitis and West Nile Virus.

Zika virus has headlined in the news (January 2016) and it’s being blamed for spreading Microcephaly, a birth defect occurring in thousands of newborn children particularly in Brazil. Although Zika virus is not a killer, it provokes an emotional reaction because the associated spread of Microcephaly affects our ability to reproduce.

“While zika seems to be spreading in the wild, it is also a registered – patented organism that can be purchased by almost anyone, so why has the issue of patent ownership of the Zika virus not been the object of media

Mysterious Rapanui

Easter Island unveiled

It is said that the Polynesians arrived in Easter island less than 2000 years ago but for the Moai to be buried to their current depth by natural means, that is by the natural accumulation of soil would take a minimum of 20,000 years.

Given the inscriptions on the Moai which seem to have no connection to any Pacific peoples and at first glance seem to be more related to places like Gobekly Tepe in Syria it seems highly unlikely that the Polynesians had anything to do with their creation and they probably invented a mythology to explain their existence.

It is thought that in the distant past that Rapanui was not just one island but a
