8.1 – ALIENS BC (7.24.15)


Zhejiang Province, China. June 1992. A local villager pumping water out of a pond in Phoenix Hill uncovers a man-made cavern with stairs hallways and massive ten-story-tall pillars. The grotto is one in a series of 24 separate caverns, each with similar proportions and intricately carved walls, floors and ceilings.

“Nobody really knows what on earth these things are. There’s no trace of them having been occupied or being used for storage. Certainly not for burials. There’s no trace of anything like that.”

Paul Bahn, Ph.D. (Archaeologist)

“There’s a Swiss author by the name of Luc Burgin who was the first to take this story outside of China in his book China’s Mysterious Cave Labyrinth. And what he showed me convinced me that some kind of advanced technology was used here. It’s one of the most amazing things I’ve ever seen, where you enter this subterranean world that clearly has been hewn out of the bedrock with artificial means.”

– Giorgio A. Tsoukalos

“It’s almost as if there was some sort of artificial mechanism that was grinding and drilling all of the stone out, and this suggests the possibility that they may have had some sort of technology.”

David Wilcock (Author/Filmmaker),

(The Synchronicity Key)

Archaeologists estimate that the material excavated from the site would amount to nearly one million cubic meters approximately the volume of 400 Olympic-sized pools. Yet there is no evidence of where this material would have gone. And Chinese officials have calculated that an endeavor of this magnitude would take a minimum of 1,000 men working day and night for at least five years.

“There is no historical record of these caverns having been excavated. So, there’s no document explaining what they were used for, who excavated them. And this remains a very, very, frustrating detail for historians.”

– Dominic Steavu, Ph.D.
(Asst. Prof. of Chinese Religious Studies, UCSB)

“We know that in China there are written records that go back at least 3,000 years. They make absolutely no mention of these caves. So, we must look much further back in time for their origin. But exactly how old are they? Are they 4,000 years, 5,000 years? Are they even 10,000 years? We just don’t know at this time.”

– Andrew Collins (Author, Gateway to Atlantis),
(The Cygnus Mystery), (Beneath the Pyramids),
(Göbekli Tepe: Genesis of the Gods)

“Some have suggested that they’re up to 15,000 years old. In fact, Chinese scholars are the ones who have proposed that this cave system dates back to one of China’s first emperors, Huang Di. And Huang Di, as we all know, descended from the sky in nothing else but a fiery dragon.”

– Giorgio A. Tsoukalos
(Publisher, Legendary Times Magazine)

“Somebody went to an extreme amount of trouble to build an underground civilization. Why would they do that? Is it possible that something was happening on the surface of the Earth? When we go back to the Icelandic legends, we see this cataclysm that is described as a cataclysm of fire called the Ragnarök in which you have flames in the air and rocks and gravel raining down from the sky.”

David Wilcock (Author/Filmmaker),
(Author, The Source Field Investigations),
(The Synchronicity Key)

In the Icelandic Ragnarök legend, the world is turned upside down. A great fire is followed by a submersion of the world in water, resulting in the death of the Nordic gods and their offspring. Only two humans are left to repopulate the earth. It is a tale much like that of the Great Flood found in the Judeo-Christian Bible. And similar stories of a great deluge one that marks the end of an old world and the start of a new one can be found in the histories of virtually every ancient civilization on our planet.

“Virtually every culture, every ancient culture talks about floods and ancient floods. Some people dismiss this as, you know, myth without explanation. But what we find geologically is, in fact, we would expect flood legends.”

Robert M. Schoch, Ph.D.
(Geologist / Author, Forgotten Civilization)

In 2007, a consortium of geologists publishes its collective findings indicating evidence of a major meteor event. What they discover is a carbon-rich layer in the geological record at various sites across the globe dating back to around 10,900 BC. A separate study conducted by scientists studying Arctic ice core samples finds evidence suggesting a rapid glacial melt at nearly the same time period.

“The Ice Age ends very, very dramatically, almost literally overnight. You see this in the ice cores. All of a sudden, there are dramatic changes, temperatures rising, torrential rains, flooding.”

Robert M. Schoch, Ph.D.
(Geologist / Author, Forgotten Civilization)

Could the geological record suggest that the stories of a global cataclysm are true? If so, might the stories of a cleansing of the earth of otherworldly beings, leaving only humans to repopulate the planet, also be true? Ancient Astronaut Theorists say yes and suggest further evidence exists in the tales of a long lost continent.
