Mysterious Carved 'Faces' Found in Italy

Written By Tripzibit on Apr 22, 2014 | 19:00

In 2001, Pietro Gaietto, an Italian archaeologist from the Museum of the Origins of Man, saw something unusual in one particular head-sized rock in a pile of rubble collected for use as building material. Apparently, he has found a sculpture which could be 200,000 years old. Gaietto has identified rock in the Borzonasca district of Italy which appears to be carved with two faces looking in opposite directions, one of which is wearing a beard.

The discovery is no surprise to the locals who say such sculptures are nothing new. In fact, they point to a nearby rock cliff which they believe has been carved with a image which they call the Face of Borzone. The cliff which resemble a human face discovered during an inspection of the Commune for the construction of the carriage road in 1965, with its 7-meter-high rock sculpture is considered the largest in Italy and Europe.

If Gaietto's find in 2001 proves genuine it would have to be the work of an extinct species of human called Homo erectus. That at least is what the experts say.

The earliest examples of human artwork that scientists feel confident to describe as such are all less than 100,000 years old. The most notable items are probably the 70,000-year-old engraved ochre pieces found in the Blombos Cave of South Africa.

Such anomalous finds, though usually ignored by orthodox archaeology, have occurred frequently over the last century and have been documented in the book Forbidden Archaeology by Michael Cremo.

Mystery of Rudolph Fentz: Fact or Fiction?

Written By Tripzibit on Apr 18, 2014 | 20:43

On a June night in 1950, approximately at 11:00 p.m., an on-duty police officer spotted a mysterious man with mutton chop sideburns and Victorian-era duds standing in the middle of the road at an intersection near Times Square in New York City who appeared to be in his early thirties. Witnesses said he looked startled at that time. And then, the police officer approached him to offer assistance, but the light at the intersection had changed. In apparent shock, the man headed for the sidewalk in the direction of approaching traffic, suddenly he was struck by a taxi and died instantly.

When paramedics arrived, they were astounded by the man’s appearance. He was dressed in old-fashioned, 19th-century-era clothing. A tall, silk hat, a thick, buttoned cutaway coat, checkered pants, and buttoned shoes. The officials at the morgue searched his body and found the following items in his pockets:
  • A copper token for a beer worth 5 cents, bearing the name of a saloon, which was unknown, even to older residents of the area;
  • A bill for the care of a horse and the washing of a carriage, drawn by a livery stable on Lexington Avenue that was not listed in any address book;
  • About 70 dollars in old banknotes;
  • Business cards with the name Rudolph Fentz and an address on Fifth Avenue;
  • A letter sent to this address, in June 1876 from Philadelphia.

Times Square, New York (Present Day)

Captain Hubert V. Rihm of the Missing Persons Bureau began his investigation by using those information to identify the man. He found that the address on Fifth Avenue was part of a business; its current owner did not know Rudolph Fentz. No traces of a Rudolph Fentz, including fingerprints, could be found in any modern records, and no missing person reports had been issued for anyone meeting his description.

Rihm continued the investigation and finally found a Rudolph Fentz Jr. in a telephone book of 1939. Rihm spoke to the residents of the apartment building at the listed address who remembered Fentz and described him as a man about 60 years who had worked nearby. After his retirement, he moved to an unknown location in 1940.

Contacting the bank, Rihm was told that Fentz died five years before, and traced his widow to a residence in Florida. Rihm contacted her and learned that her husband’s father had disappeared in 1876 aged 29. He was last seen going out for a walk, and never returned.

With this new information, Rihm searched through outdated missing person records, and found that a Rudolph Fentz had indeed gone missing in 1876, some 74 years earlier. What’s more, the description from the 1876 missing person report matched, exactly, that of the present Rudolph Fentz.

Afraid that others would think him crazy for suggesting that this was the same individual, Captain Rihm avoided speaking of the matter, and none of his findings were officially recorded. The case is, to this day, considered unsolved.

Since 1972, the mysterious disappearance and reappearance of Rudolph Fentz has appeared in books (such as those by Viktor Farkas) and articles, and later on the Internet, portrayed as a real event. The story has been cited as evidence for various theories and assumptions about the topic of time travel.

The story was published a number of times in the 70's and 80's as fact, until 2000, after the Spanish magazine ‘Más Allá’ published a representation of the events as a factual report, folklore researcher Chris Aubeck investigated the description to check the veracity. His research led to the conclusion that the people and events of the story invented all were fictional, although he could not find the original source.

Later in 2002, Pastor George Murphy contacted Aubeck and claimed that the original source was from either a 1952 Robert Heinlein science fiction anthology, entitled "Tomorrow, The Stars" or the Collier’s magazine from 15 September 1951. The true author was the renowned science fiction writer Jack Finney (1911–1995), and the Fentz episode was part of the short story "I’m Scared", which was published in Collier’s first. No copies of the story have ever been found, and Finney died before he could be questioned.

However, in 2007 a researcher working for the then Berlin News Archive, found a newspaper story in the archives from April 1951 reporting the story almost as it reported today. This newspaper archive was printed some 5 months before the short story sourced as the origin. Whats even odder, a number of researchers have claimed to have found evidence of the real Rudolph Fentz, and proof of his disappearance aged 29 in 1876.

The Haunted Gibraltar Point Lighthouse

Written By Tripzibit on Apr 15, 2014 | 16:55

Completed around 1808, the Gibraltar Point Lighthouse is one of the earliest and oldest existing structures in Toronto. This 150 years-old lighthouse which is located on the Toronto Islands in Toronto, Ontario is rumored to be haunted by the ghost of J.P. Radelmüller, its first keeper. It was functioned as a lighthouse for Lake Ontario until 1958. Now, it is currently unused and shut, however the building is occasionally opened to the public to have a look inside.

According to local legend, John Paul Radelmüller was murdered in the lighthouse.The story appeared in The York Gazette of January 14th, 1815:

The Gibraltar Point Lighthouse (2009)
“Died on the evening of the 2nd of January, J.P. , keeper of the lighthouse on Gibraltar Point. From circumstances there is moral proof of his having been murdered. If the horrid crime admits of aggravation when the inoffensive and benevolent character of the unfortunate sufferer are considered, his murder will be pronounced most barbarous and inhuman.”

During and after the War of 1812, when the U.S. besieged and destroyed most of York (only the lighthouse was left undamaged), drinking was the main pastime of most off-duty military recruits. Radelmüller was typically happy to oblige patrons who dropped by any hour of the day or night. There were rumors Radelmüller was also actively involved as a smuggler who brought whiskey from the United States. 

At that time, on January 2nd, 1815 two or three drunken soldiers from the Fort at York called on him late in the evening and asked him the bootlegged beer. But Radelmüller gently refused, and tried to send them away. And when they got angry, he try to fled from them. They chased him up the stairs and knocked him unconscious, and then they chopped up Radelmüller's body into pieces and buried around near the lagoon on the islands. Later, two soldiers named John Henry and John Blowman, were charged with his murder but later acquitted.

In 1893, George Durnan, the fourth lighthouse keeper found a coffin buried in the sand nearby that contained a jawbone, however It wasn't clear whether this belonged to Radelmüller.

Many believe that Radelmüller's ghost still haunts the lighthouse to this day. Some have reported that the sound of moaning can be heard on misty nights. Orbs of swirling light and an eerie ethereal “mist” have been seen and even photographed emanating from the tower. While others claim to have seen an apparition wandering the grounds that is believed to be his ghost.

Ancient Ruins on Jupiter Moon

Written By Tripzibit on Apr 11, 2014 | 19:22

In 1985, one of the world's leading researchers has filed an official protest with the Soviet Union, charging Russian scientists with covering up the discovery of an ancient city on Io one of the largest Jupiter Moon. In the protest which appeared in European scientific journals, Dr. Albert Feldstein said that the smuggled official documents and photographs clearly show that the Soviets have "conspired to keep the scientific find of the century secret."

The letter also criticized American space officials "who have been every bit as tight-lipped as the Soviets about the known existence of temple ruins on Mars. Both the Americans and Soviets know there are ruins on Mars and the Jupiter Moon (Io) - why are they being so secretive?” asked the Hungarian astrophysicist in his letter. "Are they afraid people will panic? Do they think they will lose some of their prestige? Why can't they admit what most of us already know - this universe does not and never has belonged to man alone."

Weekly World News article October 1985
Dr. Feldstein said documents and photos he received from an unnamed Soviet military source prove a deep-space probe discovered the ancient city on Io on July 19, 1985.

"Although the city is in ruins, what's left of its architectural features appear to be quite sophisticated," he said.

"With computer enhancement, you can clearly see a grid of broad avenues and smaller walkways. The buildings themselves are enormous rectangular structures.

"They appear to have had flat sloping roofs. You can also make out flying buttresses, a form of architectural design and construction support that we still use on earth today. It's like finding an alien version of ancient Athens."

As reported in the November 20, 1984, edition of the News, a Soviet satellite had photographed what appear to be temples on the surface of Mars in1982 or 1983.

The structures were said to be slate gray, domed and at least 50,000 years old. The Russians kept that discovery secret as long as possible, too.

In the Kremlin, Soviet officials would neither confirm nor deny having received Dr. Feldstein's protest. They called his allegations of cover-up "preposterous."

Richard Charles Hoagland also claim that advanced civilizations exist or once existed on the Moon, Mars and on some of the moons of Jupiter and Saturn, and that NASA and the United States government have conspired to keep these facts secret. He has advocated his ideas in two published books, videos, lectures, interviews, and press conferences.
