Canals were one of my first “A-ha’s” when I started to become aware that an advanced, ancient maritime civilization flourished around the world until what I believe was relatively recently.
When I first started to intuitively receive and understand information about the Ancient Civilization, I looked up Great Falls of the Potomac between Maryland and Virginia, near where I grew up. This is an aerial image of Mather Gorge at Great Falls The spin is how this could be natural, but look at how straight it is!
And here is how it looks closer to earth.
When I realized that part of the ancient civilization involved canal-building, then it became logical to see this as a canal rather than natural.
This is a picture of the C & O Canal at Harper’s Ferry. We are taught that this was built in the early 1800s. So, what is wrong with that date of construction? This is a sophisticated engineering project!
As a matter of fact, the C & O Canal parallels the Potomac River for a considerable distance. What technology existed in America in the late 1700s and early 1800s could have built a sophisticated project like this?
I am going to take you on a tour of the canal systems I have discovered in my research on planetary alignments based on the North American Star Tetrahedron that I found by connecting major cities of North America, off of which cities around the world line up in circles, lines, and other geometric configurations.
While not always the case, canals quite frequently are called rivers and creeks, with no hint given that they are anything other than natural, even though I consistently find what are called canals in the same location.
What I am about to share is a sample of examples I have found around the world. There are far too many to include all of them.
Starting in South America, this canal is in Suba, the northwest part of Bogota, Colombia…
…and this one is in the Parque el Virrey in North Bogota.
Next, the Panama Canal. This is the Pacific entrance of the Panama Canal, where Panama City is located.
The Panama Canal is an artificial 82-mile, or 51-kilometer, waterway in Panama that connects the Atlantic Ocean and Pacific Ocean via the Isthmus of Panama.
The project of building a canal across the Isthmus of Panama is said to have been started by the French in 1881.
They are said to have been unsuccessful in completing it due to engineering problems and a high worker mortality rate.
Then the Americans are said to have taken on the project starting in 1904.
The Panama Canal opened on August 15th, 1914…
…just in time for the beginning of World War I, which started on July 28th, 1914.
Was the Panama Canal a brand new canal, or an existing canal that was excavated from mud?
We have to look no further than what we are told about the Spanish Conquest of Peru to raise a serious challenge to the official historical narrative.
Our history says that Pedro Arias D’Avila established a base of conquest in Panama City for Peru in 1519, on the Pacific side of the Isthmus of Panama.
The coast of Spain is on the Atlantic Ocean and Mediterranean Sea.
The Conquest of Peru is said to have started in 1532 with the Battle of Cajamarca, a city in Northern Peru.
It is quite a distance from Panama City, by land or sea. It sits at 8,900 feet in elevation, or 2,750 meters. That’s way up there!
Apparently, Pizarro and his 128 men marched to Cajamarca from Piure, on the coast of modern-day Peru.
There must have been some kind of viable waterway in Panama already for the conquistadors to even get to this part of the world!
In the country of Belize, its capital, Belize City, has what is called Haulover Creek running through its center…
…which looks like a canal, and not natural.
Belize City is apparently a city of canals.
On to the United States, and Port Isabel, which is located on the Texas Gulf Coast near Brownsville, Texas and Matamoros, Mexico.
The Brownsville Ship Channel starts at Port Isabel, and is 17-miles, or 27-kilometers, long.
There is another channel at Port Mansfield, just north of Port Isabel.
I find the two jetties at the entrance of the channel leading to Port Mansfield to be of interest, because their appearance…
…is reminiscent of these at Venice, Florida…
…and the South Inlet of the Grand Lucayan Waterway at Lucaya, near Freetown, on Grand Bahama Island.
This is a view from Google Earth showing artificially-made channels and canals throughout the city of Port Isabel in Texas.
Still going to use Venice in Florida pictured here on the other side of the Gulf of Mexico for a comparison because these two communities have strikingly similar characteristics, like the residential neighborhoods on artificial islands surrounded by water…
…and a long channel in Venice, Florida, similar to the Brownsville Ship Channel that starts at Port Isabel.
Not only that, Port Isabel, Texas, and Venice, Florida, are practically directly across the Gulf of Mexico from each other. If they are not exactly, it is close.
In Louisiana, here is what looks like a canal in downtown Houma…
…as well as another one between Houma’s Twin Bridges.
This is an aerial view of the Mississippi Delta, which is on the southeastern coast of Louisiana, showing many geometric and straight channels…
…and the same type of straight, geometric channel is also found in the Nile Delta.
Canal Street is a major thorough-fare in New Orleans, forming the upriver boundary between the city’s oldest neighborhood, the French Quarter, and the Central Business District.
It is interesting to note that while Canal Street was said to be named for a canal that was never built, there are plenty of still-existing canals in New Orleans, as seen in this Google Earth screenshot. No telling how many have been filled-in!
And just northeast of New Orleans, in Slidell, Louisiana, we find Eden Isles, which look like what we saw in Port Isabel in Texas, and Venice in Florida.
In Washington, DC, you find the C & O Canal paralleling the Potomac River.
Here is an interesting convergence at Hains Point and East Potomac Park, where you have the very straight Washington Channel converging with the Georgetown Channel in the Center, the Anacostia River to the left, and the Potomac River to the right.
Compare the precise and angular look of Hains Point with what we see where the Missouri and Mississippi Rivers meet near St. Louis, Missouri…
…with the place where the White Nile and Blue Nile meet at Khartoum, the capital of Sudan…
…and where the Des Moines River and Raccoon River meet in Des Moines, Iowa.
Next, Wilmington, Delaware is built-out around what we are told is the confluence of the Christina River…
…and Brandywine Creek.
This is the Delaware River on the Philadelphia waterfront, with its nice masonry banks…
…and this view from the Schuylkill River of the Philadelphia Museum of Art looks more like something you would expect to see in Ancient Italy and Ancient Greece than something that would have been built in North America in the last 200 years or so.
A portion of the Delaware Canal State Park is in Morrisville, Pennsylvania.
The canal that runs through Morrisville was said to have been built in the 1830s between Easton to the North and Bristol to the South…
…and a crushed-stone towpath, upon which mules pulled cargo-laden boats.
So, somehow the technology existed in the 1830s to build a sophisticated canal system, and they had the ability to crush stone into tiny, tiny pieces, but that the boats themselves had to be pulled by mules?
Liberty State Park opened in the Bicentennial Year of 1976, and is located at the mouth of the Hudson River on the New Jersey-side in Jersey City.
The northeastern side of Liberty State Park is bordered by both the Little Basin…
…and the Big Basin of the Morris Canal.
The Morris Canal, 107-miles, or 172-kilometers, long, was said to have been completed in 1832 to carry coal across northern New Jersey between the Delaware River and the Hudson River. It was closed in 1924.
It was hailed as an ingenious, technological marvel for its use of water-driven, inclined planes.
The builders of the Morris Canal used a sophisticated power house technology, pictured here, to power the water turbine that was set in motion to raise or lower cradled boats on the inclined planes by means of a cable.
You mean to tell me all of this extremely sophisticated and advanced canal-engineering technology was being implemented prior to the beginning of the Industrial Age, according to the history we are taught?
And again, mules were still needed to be used to pull the canal boats in places on the Morris Canal in spite of all that technology?
The Delaware and Raritan Canal connects the Delaware River at Bordentown, New Jersey, and the Raritan River at New Brunswick, New Jersey. This a distance of 44-miles, or 71-kilometers.
This canal system was said to have been dug by hand tools wielded by mostly Irish immigrants.
It goes through Trenton, New Jersey…
…on its way to the New Brunswick Terminus. We are told the canal was built between 1830 and 1834. Again, the sophistication of the engineering of these canals does not match the low technology of the times in which they are said to have been built.
Here is one of the locks on the Delaware and Raritan Canal.
Raritan Bay is the northern outlet of the canal, in the southern portion of the Lower New York Bay…
…and is part of the New York Bight, an indentation along the Atlantic Coast, extending northeasterly from Cape May, New Jersey, to Montauk Point on the eastern tip of Long Island.
We are told the bight results from the fact that the Atlantic coast of New Jersey, which runs roughly north-south, and the southern coast of Long Island, which runs roughly east-west, with the point approximately at the mouth of the Hudson River, where the red arrow is pointing.
I am including this because I believe it to be noteworthy, like sunken ancient infrastructure, and what is being called the Hudson Valley Shelf in this depiction could actually be a canal.
This is the mouth of the Hudson River in the Upper New York Bay, also called the New York Harbor.
Upper New York Bay provides passage for the Hudson River via the Anchorage Channel, which is fifty-feet deep, or 15 meters, through the mid-point of the harbor. It is one of the most heavily-used water transportation arteries in the world.
It would stand to reason because of its location and connection to the mouth of the Hudson River that the Anchorage Channel is part of the Hudson Valley Shelf of the New York Bight.
The Gowanus Canal in Brooklyn is connected to the Gowanus Bay of Upper New York Bay. Brooklyn occupies the westernmost part of Long Island. At one time a vital transportation hub, it is now a superfund site due to extensive pollution, with clean-up efforts starting in 2013.
Hartford, the capital of Connecticut, sits on the Connecticut River, with its masonry banks…
…and what is called the longest River in New England at 406 miles (or 653 Kilometers), going from the United States Border with Quebec to Long Island Sound.
This is an aeriel view of the Connecticut River, the border between Vermont on the left, and New Hampshire on the right. Quite a geometric-looking zig-zag going on here with this so-called river!
Providence is the capital and largest city of Rhode Island. It is situated in the mouth of the canal-like Providence River…
Waterplace Park is an urban park in downtown Providence, situated on the Woonasquatucket River.
Interesting to note is the presence of megalithic masonry at Waterplace Park, which was said to have been finished in 1994.
The meaning of megalith is a large stone used in construction, typically associated with Peru and Egypt, but actually found everywhere around the world. Here is another megalithic construction at Waterplace Park.
In Boston, there is a neighborhood called Fort Point.
This is an historic photo of the Fort Point neighborhood circa 1930…
…and here is a picture of Fort Point today, with the heavy masonry banks of the Fort Point Channel clearly visible in the foreground.
The Rideau Canal is in Canada’s capital city of Ottawa, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and connects Ottawa with Lake Ontario and the St. Lawrence Seaway. It was said to have been built in 1832.
The St. Lawrence Seaway is a system of locks, canals and channels in Canada and the United States that permits ocean-going vessels to travel from the Atlantic Ocean to the Great Lakes of North America.
These are the Soo Locks, located on the St. Mary’s River between Lake Superior and Lake Huron, and are operated and maintained by the U. S. Army Corps of Engineers. They were said to have been built in 1855.
Judging from all of the activity going on here, this must be a very special place, and I am going to have to come back to the Soo Locks as its own research project for a future post.
In Europe, again there are many more examples than what I am going to share, but here are several.
I found masonry associated with water features occurring throughout Scotland, like the so-called natural River Clyde going through Glasgow shown here…
…just like what is called Forth and Clyde Canal, between the Firth of Forth and the River Clyde…
…construction of which is said to have been started in 1768, and opened in 1790. It runs between the Firth of Forth on Scotland’s central-east coast, through Glasgow to the River Clyde.
The River Aire in Leeds, England has masonry banks.
And just like Glasgow, there is a canal here as well – the Leeds and Liverpool Canal that links the two cities, construction of which was said to have started around 1770
Calais is a city and major ferry port in northern France, situated on the Strait of Dover, the narrowest point in the English Channel across from Dover in England.
The old part of the town is called Calais-Nord, and is surrounded by canals, like the Bergues Canal pictured here.
This is the canal-looking River Tet, the longest river in the Pyrenees-Orientales at 72 miles (or 116 kilometers) going through Perpignan in southern France before it ends in the Mediterranean Sea…
…and its tributary, the equally canal-looking River Basse, also in Perpignan.
Now I will switch focus to St. Petersburg, Russia, called the “Venice of the North.”
It is tucked away at the eastern end of the Gulf of Finland.
Vasilyevsky Island is an island in St. Petersburg, Russia, and is bordered by the Great Neva River, starting on one side of what is called the Spit of Vasilyevsky Island in the historic city center of St. Petersburg, and the Little Neva River, starting on the other side of the Spit…
…before the Great and Little Neva Rivers join to form the Neva River.
Other rivers and canals of St. Petersburg are:
The Fontanka River…
…the Moyka River…
…the Griboedov Canal…
…the Winter Canal…
…the Swan Canal…
…and the Kryukov Canal.
In the same part of the world as St. Petersburg, the Saimaa Canal connects Vyborg in Russia on the Gulf of Finland, with Lake Saimaa in Finland. It was said to have been built between 1845 and 1856, and opened in 1856.
Kotka is west of the Saimaa Canal in Finland. It is a major port city, with its artifically shaped harbors…
…and is situated on the Kymi River.
This ancient canal is in Kotka as well.
Helsinki, the capital of Finland, is west of Kotka, and is located on the Vantaa River, where it flows into the Gulf of Finland through the Vantaanjoki River Basin.
The Vantaa River flowing through Helsinki has such sights…
…as right-angled waterfalls.
Moving on from the Gulf of Finland to Central Asia, there is a canal system in Quorgonteppa, now officially called Bokhtar, in Tajikistan, a mountainous land-locked country…
…and the Kanali Varnob is in Dushanbe, Tajikistan’s capital.
The Great Fergana Canal is located in the Fergana Valley between Tajikistan and Uzbekhistan.
It was said to have been built in 1939, taking only 45-days to complete with conscripted unskilled labor and a high number of fatalities.
And one of the top attractions of Tashkent, the capital of Uzbekhistan, is the Ankhor Canal.
In the Middle East, this is Dubai’s Old Town, the Bur Dubai, in the United Arab Emirates, with a sophisticated canal system as well.
I am going to end this post on Australia’s Gold Coast on the eastern coast of Australia near Brisbane.
It is a popular vacation resort, and has approximately 400 km, or 249 miles, of canals.
Here is another Florida canal system for comparison to the Gold Coast canals, this time Las Olas Isles in Fort Lauderdale on the Atlantic Ocean.
I am just scratching the surface of this vast topic with what I have presented here.
Certainly before the Internet Age, it would have not been possible to make these direct comparisons between different places around the world.
We had to go with what we were told. Back then, who could have imagined we weren’t being told the truth?!
In the next post I am going to be taking a look at the star forts I have found by tracking planetary alignments, and some others I have found along the way as well.
