Riddle of the Sphinx

24 Jun
THE SPHINX IS an iconic Egyptian monument. It has a long history of curious surroundings. But what if I told you that similar structures to the Egyptian monuments have been found on Mars? Photographs captured by the Mars Global Surveyor and Viking Lander of the Cydonia region of Mars depict structures on the Martian surface eerily similar to those found in Egypt. The anomalies have sparked huge controversy as you might imagine – conspiracy theorists are having a field day.It is speculated that the Sphinx’s origins date farther back than the timeline generally suggested by some archaeologists. This is evidenced by the fact that the erosion on the Sphinx seems to be primarily caused by water. However the amount of rainfall required does not match the climate which existed during the time archaeologists suggest, which is approximately 2500 BC. At this time the area was already desert and had little rainfall. This suggests that the monument is much older – but how old could it be?

In addition to this, there is a plate on the Sphinx which states that it was created during the ‘First Time’. The ‘First Time’ refers to the time in Egyptian history when the Gods walked with humans. We all know what Von Daniken’s views are on this – Could these Gods possibly be alien visitors to Earth? This period if accurate would date the Sphinx to around 36, 400 BC instead.

One thing is for sure, there is compelling scientific evidence to suggest the Sphinx was built around 10,000 years ago, the last time there was sufficient water in the area to cause the erosion seen on the monument.

Could aliens have given the Egyptians gifts of technological advances, helping them build the incredible monuments that still stand to this day? This theory is also supported by some of the hieroglyphs, half human half animal hybrids and objects that look distinctly like flying saucers depicted in ancient Egyptian articles.

Could there be a connection between the monuments of ancient Egypt, and the objects on Mars, not to mention some strange anomalies now being discovered on the Moon.

The novel Cataclysm of the Ancients tells a captivating story about what just might have been. If this article has peaked your interest, then click the book title link.

Have You Noticed The Weather Recently?

17 Jun

With the tense situation around climate change today, the topic of environmental cataclysm is ever looming. Earth’s average temperature is getting higher and higher each year. The water is becoming more and more acidic, coral reefs are dying, and the oceans are filled with plastic, and too fished for human financial gains. The oceans are one of the world’s major weather regulators. Climate circulation patterns occurring in the oceans are temperature dependent.

Having said that, we are clearly in trouble. The oceans also act as a sponge, absorbing over 90% of the planet’s increasing atmospheric temperatures, meaning that even if we change our emissions today we will not see the return for another 20 years or so. The shift in circulation patterns will change the kind of weather which occurs in different locations. Many communities, coastal regions and countries people will not be prepared to deal with this, and many lives, homes and valuables will be lost and / or damaged.

Yes, in only 20 years. We are about to go on a wild ride of weather events. Haven’t you noticed it occurring yet? Maybe the summer storms are getting more dramatic, maybe the droughts are becoming more of a norm than an outlier. Maybe you’ve heard of the polar ice caps melting?

Scientists have been warning us for years about the imminent threat that is climate change, and politicians have ignored them. The day will come, and we getting closer and closer to it. We are in a self-inflicted pressure cooker, and the pressure is about to exceed the safe limit, as increasing CO2 levels push average global temperature to 2 Celsius above the norm.

Will we have to brace ourselves for massive catastrophic storms? Evacuate coastlines to avoid the flooding that will inevitably come, or maybe the ancient aliens will come back to Earth and punish us for what we’ve done to the planet. Maybe eco-terrorists will launch a terrorist attack to scare us into finally making the changes we need.

Either way, we are very lucky that someone is trying to take care of these issues. A new hero has arrived and his name is Robert Spire. So, if you like terrorist attack thrillers with a science fiction flavour, then you’ll enjoy TIPPING POINT. Why not download your free copy before the weather gets too bad!

Asteroid Impact!

Asteroid Threat to Earth – Impact Point

 

With news that an asteroid as big as the Statue of Liberty could hit Earth on or around the 9th of September this year, we are reminded of how fragile our existence on planet Earth and all life upon it is as we travel around the Milky Way Galaxy.

An asteroid called 2006QV89 will come perilously close to our planet and could even smash into us. At 40 metres wide, the object is not big enough to cause too much damage however as It’s only about twice as large as the 20 metres object which exploded in the skies over the Russian city of Chelyabinsk in 2013.

Having said that, The ‘airburst’ caused by this detonating meteorite left about 400 people injured, with most wounds caused by shards of flying glass from windows smashed by the shockwave. The energy from  the resulting explosion exceeded 470 kilotons of TNT.

If 2006QV89 exploded over a major city like London or New York, the damage could be much greater, but still only minor in comparison to what an Earth impacting meteorite could do!

Thankfully Nasa calculations reveal it has a 99.988% probability of missing Earth.

The threat from Earth impacting asteroids and comets will unfortunately never recede, you only have to be a dinosaur to know that! In more recent times we can consider the huge air burst that occurred over Siberia in 1908 – the Tunguska Event – levelling trees in the remote forest for miles around.

If that event occurred now over a major city, the effects would be cataclysmic.

Check out the incredible, ‘Daylight fireball’ footage taken in 1972 of an Earth-grazing meteorite that passed just 35 miles above the Earth before skimming the atmosphere and continuing its journey through the solar system – https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=vBu-yUzWXqg

Such events can happen without warning, despite NASA and Earth’s scientists trying to track these things. A sobering thought however is that the number of scientists worldwide hunting for these things is about the amount of people who work at a McDonalds restaurant!

For Anyone who enjoys a good science fiction mystery thriller on this very theme and who is interested in learning more about this worrying threat, can jump in to my exciting thriller, Impact Point, available on kindle at Amazon.com and  Amazon.co.uk.
