The Sahara was ‘green’ for over 6,000 years and had 10 times more rain than now

According to a new study recently published in the journal Science Advances, evidence shows that humans occupied much of the Sahara during the ‘wet period’ around 8,000 years ago. Through an analysis of marine sediments, researchers at the University of Arizona have determined rainfall patterns in the Sahara over a period of 6,000 years obtaining fascinating results. The UA-led team has identified the climate pattern that generated a “Green Sahara” from 5,000 to 11,000 years ago. The region had 10 times the rainfall it does today. As it turns out, what…

NASA: this Space rock is worth 10,000 quadrillion US Dollars

An enormous asteroid made of precious metals could solve the metal resource problem forever. An incredibly large asteroid, estimated to measure around 200km in diameter is currently caught in the sun’s orbit between Mars and Jupiter. According to NASA researchers, the asteroid is composed of a heavy concentration of highly valuable metals such as iron, nickel, and gold. It is believed that the iron alone present in the composition of the rock is worth the equivalent of $10,000 quadrillion, enough to dwarf the entire world’s economy which currently stands at…

Rewriting History: A Huge Million-Year-Old, Man-Made Underground Complex?

While most researchers and scholars around the globe agree that human civilization as we know it only has only existed for some 12,000 years on our planet, there are countless discoveries that point towards a much different past. There are many findings ranging from temples, structures and artifacts that are evidence of advanced civilizations that inhabited Earth much sooner than mainstream scholars suggest. However, many of these incredible findings have been considered as impossible due to the fact that they alter our written history in every possible way. In recent…

The Origin of the Blue Eyes: The Ancient ‘Gods’ and Their Royal Descendants

Studies carried out by scientists from the Institute of Forensic Genetics at the University of Copenhagen have concluded that all blue-eyed people share a common ancestor, someone who lived 6,000 to 10,000 years ago near the area by the Black sea. Researchers analyzed and compared the unique genetic make-up of the chromosomes in the iris from 155 blue-eyed individuals from diverse regions such as Denmark, Turkey and Jordan. All of the subjects that participated in the study had the exact same genetic “mutations” in specific chromosomes of the eye with…

Complex life could have existed on Earth at least once before

Complex life might have come and gone on Earth long before the multicellular organisms we’re familiar with today arose, a new study suggests. It’s generally thought that the evolution of complex life was a rare, once-in-4.5-billion-years event. But new research suggests that conditions were right for complex cells to evolve and die off at least once – or perhaps several times – before our lineage even got started. What does that mean? Billions of years ago, there could have been other complex life forms on the planet, totally unrelated to…

Found: Noah’s Ark Blueprints reveal the Ark was ROUND

A clay tablet believed to be around 4,000-year-old details the material used in the construction of the Ark and indicates Noah’s Ark was in fact ROUND. The so-called Ark blueprints are among the most important ancient documents ever discovered. The Noah’s Ark blueprints are 4,000-year-old lists instructions which detail how the Ark looked like, the material used and its peculiar ’round’ shape. It was considered as one of the most important human documents ever discovered on Earth. According to researchers, the ancient text details the materials and exact measurements for building Noah’s…

Neuroscientists Discover a Song That Reduces Anxiety By 65 Percent. Hear It Yourself!

Yes, a group of scientists have discovered that this song can reduce anxiety by 65%! This is really amazing, especially because many people around the world suffer from anxiety and depression. You probably know someone who is anxious, right? Even Hippocrates wrote about it in the fourth century BCE. Søren Kierkegaard talked about it in the 1860s, and Sigmund Freud addressed the disorder in 1926. Many people think that the best way to treat anxiety is (guess what) pharmaceutical drugs. Cognitive therapy is a common approach as well. But, the good…

Fabled ‘Hobbits’ NOW Recognized As Legitimate ‘Human Species’

When the 1-meter-tall ancient human nicknamed “the hobbit” was discovered in 2004 it shocked the world, leaving supporters and skeptics longing for more fossils. Homo floresiensis stood about three and a half feet (1.1 meters) tall and weighed around 75 pounds (35 kilograms) and was originally discovered in 2003 in Liang Bua cave. The new fossil discovery has provided more clues.  “Since 2007, a lot more of the cave has been excavated,” says study co-author Matthew Tocheri of Lakehead University in Thunder Bay, Ontario. Researchers found that the layers of sediment in the…

Explorers find disease-cursed City of the Monkey God and nearly lose their faces to flesh-eating parasite

Legend has it that the locals fled Honduras’ City of the Monkey God in the 16th century fearing that it had been cursed with disease. Five-hundred years later, a group of explorers excavating the lost city became the latest victims to incur the wrath of the monkey god when they nearly lost their faces to a flesh-eating parasite. “The parasite migrates to the mucous membranes of your mouth and your nose and basically eats them away,” Doug Preston, an author who documented the trip, said. “Your nose falls off, your lips fall…

Watch the rise of human cities, beginning with [arguably] the world’s first city in 3700 BC and continuing up to the present. Use the controls at the bottom to pause/resume the map and to move back and forth in time. The history of urbanization, 3700 BC – 2000 AD For each city, this map shows the date of the earliest recorded population figure, which is not necessarily the date when the city was founded. The size of each dot corresponds to its population at that time. By 2030, 75 percent…
