Circle Alignments on the Planet Algiers – Part 10 Grand Portage, Minnesota to the Belcher Islands, Hudson Bay

So far on the Circle Alignment beginning on Algeria’s Mediterranean Sea coast at its capital of Algiers, this journey has taken us through Algeria; Mali; Guinea; across the Atlantic Ocean at the Equatorial Counter Current to Brazil; Colombia; Panama; Nicaragua; Honduras; Belize; Mexico; across the Gulf of Mexico into Louisiana; Arkansas; Missouri; Iowa; and Wisconsin.

Leaving the Apostle Islands in northern Wisconsin, on the southwest shore of Lake Superior, where the last post ended….

…the next place on the Circle Alignment beginning, and ending, in Algiers is Grand Portage, an unorganized territory Cook County, Minnesota on the northwest shore of Lake Superior.

The British Northwest Company, a fur-trading business based out of Montreal in Quebec from 1779 to 1821, was really interested in this location, as they built its inland headquarters at Grand Portage in 1785, and was active there until 1802.

Grand Portage, along with Fort Niagara, Fort Detroit, and Michilimackinac in the Straits of Mackinac in Michigan, were the four main fur-trading centers of the British Empire in North America.

This is the reconstructed Great Hall of the British Northwest Company on the grounds of the Grand Portage National Monument.

Grand Portage Island is just a short distance off-shore from Grand Portage. This is what its shoreline looks like…

…compared with the shoreline of Flinders Island, the largest island in the Furneaux Group, located in the Bass Strait of the Tasman Sea which separates Tasmania and Australia.

This is a picture of Hollow Rock Beach on Grand Portage Island in Lake Superior…

The Grand Portage State Forest is just a short distance southwest of Grand Portage.

Visitor attractions include the High Falls of the Pigeon River, the highest falls in Minnesota…

…which are said to be the reason for the Grand Portage, a nine-mile ancient trail to Lake Superior that circumvents this unnavigable stretch of the Pigeon River. i have found the presence of waterfalls all along planetary alignments.

The historical site of Fort Charlotte is on the other end of the Grand Portage, and is also in the Grand Portage State Forest.

It is said to have been established by the British Northwest Company as an outpost of the Grand Portage for the fur trade.

The Pigeon River flows between Minnesota and Ontario.

This photo was taken of the Pigeon River in the international border region between the United States and Canada.

Before moving along the alignment into Ontario, I would be remiss if I did not take you to see Isle Royale.

While geographically it is very close to Grand Portage, it is part of the State of Michigan. it is the only national park in Michigan, and the only island national park in the United States.

Slide 17:  I had read several years ago about the ancient mines found on Isle Royale, and of the high-grade copper that was mined here.

Here is a view along the coast of Isle Royale.

The Isle Royale has a lighthouse on the rocky shore of Menagerie Island, just offshore…

…compared with the lighthouse on the rocky shore of Portland Maine…

…and the lighthouse on the rocky shore of Peggy’s Cove in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

What I also find of great interest here is that on the North American Star Tetrahedron…

…Isle Royale, and this whole region, features prominently.

The Kakabeka Falls on the Kamanistiquia River, in a Provincial Park located 19 miles west of Thunder Bay, are the second-highest waterfalls in Ontario…

…and look quite similar to the High Falls back on the Pigeon River in the Grand Portage State Forest.

We come now to Thunder Bay, Ontario, on this circle alignment.

Thunder Bay is the seat of the Thunder Bay District in Ontario and is located at the head of Lake Superior.  It was previously known by Fort William and Port Arthur.

Here is an aerial view of Thunder Bay, with its narrow jetties…

…compared with the long narrow jetties of the harbor of Conakry, Guinea off the West Coast of Africa…

…and the jetty of Hilo Bay on the Big Island of Hawaii.

The Hudson Bay Company merged with the original trading post located at Fort William pictured here.  So they want us to believe these buildings were the original structures of the area…

…instead of these buildings.

This picture was taken Sleeping Giant Provincial Park near Thunder Bay.

Following the alignment out of the city of Thunder Bay to Lake Nipigon, Ontario, several places of interest in the vicinity of the alignment are on the way.

One is Ouimet Canyon is thirty-seven miles, or sixty kilometers, northeast of the city of Thunder Bay.

The other is Red Rock Township…

…located under the cliffs of How Mountain.

There are also Amethyst Mines close to the alignment as it goes through the Thunder Bay District.

These are Thunder Bay amethysts, with hematite inclusions showing up as the red colorations in the amethyst points.

Next the alignment skirts the western edge of Lake Nipigon, the largest lake inside the Province of Ontario, and part of the drainage basin of the Great Lakes.

Lake Nipigon has a total area of 1,872 square miles, or 4,848 square kilometers, including numerous islands.

One of the largest islands of Lake Nipigon is called Shakespeare Island, on the left side of this satellite image.

Here are some photos of what Shakespeare Island looks like up close.

Next on the alignment, we come to Fort Hope, on Eabamet Lake, in Northern Ontario.

It is an Ojibway First Nation community, accessible only by airplane, water, or winter ice roads.

It is the home of the Eabametoong First Nation.

Wabakimi Provincial Park lies perpendicular to Lake Nipigon and Fort Hope in northwestern Ontario.

It is in the traditional areas of the Eabametoong, Aroland, and Martens Falls First Nations.

It contains a vast network of interconnected lakes and rivers.

After Fort Hope, Ontario, the alignment crosses into the Hudson Bay, and comes to the Belcher Islands.

These abstract-art-looking islands, from the air, sit directly on this alignment, as they do on several other alignments…

…including this one, where it appears that the Belcher Islands are in an alignment with other important cities and places on the grid in North America, as it passes very close to Ottawa, Ontario, the Capital of Canada…

… and, as shown by this map, the Belcher Islands/ Ottawa alignment tracks on through Philadephia, Pennsylvania.

I will end this post here, and pick up the alignment in Inukjuak in Northern Quebec.

Circle Alignments on the Planet Algiers – Part 9 Des Moines, Iowa to the Apostle Islands, Wisconsin

The circle alignment emanating from Algiers, Algeria enters North America in Louisiana, after it crosses over the Gulf of Mexico from Merida, Mexico. It continues through the Heart of the Empire Washitaw – also known as the Ancient Ones, and the Mound Builders – in Louisiana and Arkansas, and the on through the State of Missouri, passing directly through Springfield.

Next the alignment passes through Des Moines, the capital and largest city of Iowa.

It was incorporated in 1851 as Fort Des Moines. The story we are told about the fort itself is that it was built by the Army in 1843.

Check out the magnetism pattern showing up in the bricks!

The stated reason for having a fort in Des Moines was to control the Sauk, an Algonquin language-speaking people of the Green Bay, Wisconsin area and the Meskwaki. closely related to the Sauk, known as the Fox, and also Algonquin language speakers. Their homelands were in the Great Lakes region. Both the Sauk and Meskwaki had been relocated from the homelands to eastern Iowa.

The Fort was said to have been built where the Raccoon River and Des Moines River meet…

…which has the same appearance as where the Mississippi River and Missouri river meet near St. Louis in Missouri…

…and where the Blue Nile and White Nile meet at Khartoum in the Sudan.

With striking similarities such as these, I am thinking all of these river systems, and a high likelihood all river systems, are actually man-made canal systems.

I did a search for Des Moines canal system to see what popped up, and I found the Des Moines Rapids Canal in Keokuk, Iowa, southeast of Des Moines. This canal is located on the Mississippi River, which serves as Iowa’s shared border with Illinois.

The construction of the 12-mile-long Des Moines Rapids Canal was said to have started in 1866, one year after the end of the American Civil War, and completed in 1877. Then it is said to have been in use for only 36 years, closing in 1913. Does any of this make sense with the amount of effort and expertise that would be needed to construct a massive engineering project like what is pictured here? And right after the Civil War?

Fort Madison, Iowa is just a short-distance up the Mississippi River from Keokuk. Here is a historic bank building in Fort Madison…

…compared with a historic building in Kherson, a city in the Ukraine.

And a wall of the Iowa State Penitentiary at Fort Madison…

…compared with this wall of the Cardiff Castle in Wales.

This is said to be the original fortification on the grounds of Cardiff Castle, which is said to have been built in the late 11th Century, after the Norman Conquest by William the Conqueror in 1066. It is what is called a motte-and-bailey castle, but looks suspiciously like a mound to me.

For comparison, this is Silbury Hill, called a prehistoric artificial chalk hill in Wiltshire. It is part of a complex of Neolithic monuments, and located a short driving distance from the Avebury Stone Circle. It is considered the largest man-made structure in Europe, believed to date back to 2,400 BC…

…and a popular place for crop circles…

…and other geometric shapes to appear.

Back to Des Moines. This is a historic photo of the Des Moines Post Office, circa 1850.

A mere 21 years later, in 1871 according to what we are told, this U.S. Circuit Court Building was already in operation. So how did we go from a relatively crude wooden structure like the post office, to this gigantic building? And only six years after the end of the American Civil War?

Same thing with the amazingly ornate and huge Iowa State Capitol Building, said to have been built between 1871 and 1886, in stark contrast to the much smaller wooden structures in the foreground. How did we go from Point A to Point Z in less than 40 years, according to the history we have been taught?

Immediately upon leaving Des Moines, the alignment passes through Ames, the flagship campus of Iowa State University.

This is the massive Beardshear Hall, a massive administrative building on the campus, said to have been built in 1906. Again, we are taught by historical omission not to question what it would have taken to build something like this during the time we are told it was, and to just trust that the information is factual and correct. Nothing to see here, right?

The next major city on the alignment is Rochester, founded in 1854, and the county seat of Olmstead County. It is the third-largest city in Minnesota…

…and situated on the Zumbro River, on another snaky, S-shaped riverbend.

The prestigious Mayo Clinic is in Rochester. This is a close-up of the tower of the Mayo Clinic’s Plummer Building, said to have opened in 1928 and is a National Historic Landmark.

Here’s a view of the Plummer Building from a different angle…

…compared with the Giralda Bell Tower in Seville, one of the capitals of Moorish Spain, said to have been completed in 1198…

…and the Moorish Tower in San Martin Teruel, Spain, said to have been built in 1316.

From Rochester, the alignment crosses through Menomonie, the county seat of Dunn County in the western part of Wisconsin.

The Menominee Nation of Wisconsin, an Algonquin-speaking people, is the only one in Wisconsin whose origin-story says they have always lived in Wisconsin. Their ancestral lands also include the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.

The Menominee Nation lost federal recognition in the 1960s, we are told due to a policy of assimilation, but they had federal recognition restored by an Act of Congress in 1972.

We are taught that the indigenous people of this land were uncivilized tribes of hunter-gatherers.

This is painting by an artist named Paul Kane, who died in 1871, called “Fishing by Torchlight,” of the Menominee spearfishing at night by torchlight and canoe on the Fox River.

So let’s take a look at the architecture of this city with the name of Menominee.

Who were they, really? 

This is the Mabel Tainter Memorial Theater in Menomonie, Wisconsin, said to have been built in 1889 by Andrew and Bertha Tainter as a memorial for their daughter Mabel who passed away from a ruptured appendix in 1886.

This is what the Mabel Tainter Theater looks like inside…

…compared with the Alhambra in Granada, Spain.

This a tower in the city of Menominie, Wisconsin…

…compared with tower of the Signoria in Florence, Italy…

…and the tower of the Great Mosque of El Obeid in Sudan. For being on completely different continents, these three towers are remarkably similar in design.

I noticed there were cedar trees on Lake Menomin…

…just like there were back in Algeria on this circle alignment, like these in Chrea National Park in the Atlas Mountains.

So I looked up cedars in Wisconsin, and found the Red Cedar State Trail is in Menominie. It is described as a 15-mile long trail with a crushed limestone that is smoother than some paved surfaces When I looked up images, I found this photo with an ancient wall parallel to the trail. We have only been taught to believe what are called rock formations are natural.

More evidence that this is the case is found at the next place in Wisconsin that we come to on the alignment, the Apostle Islands.

The Apostle Island National Lakeshore on Lake Superior is comprised of twelve-miles of mainland shore and twenty-one islands. It is described as having spectacular nature-carved rock formations…

…and eight lighthouses. Here is one example of the lighthouses found here…

…and another example of one of them.

For comparison, there a place of the shore of Port Campbell in the Victoria State of Australia called “The Twelve Apostles.”

They are described as a collection of limestone stacks from the Miocene Age, which was between 23 and 2.5 million years ago.

This is the Cape Otway Lighthouse on the Victoria coast near the Twelve Apostles. It is said to be the oldest remaining lighthouse in Australia.

The Ancient Advanced Civilization that has been removed from our collective memory was a Maritime Civilization of Master Builders, as comfortable on the water as on land.

I am going to end this post here, and pick up the circle alignment in Grand Portage, in Minnesota on Lake Superior near the Canadian border in northwestern Ontario.

Circle Alignments on the Planet Algiers – Part 8 Baton Rouge, Louisiana to Springfield, Missouri

So far I have tracked this circle alignment from its starting point in North Africa in Algiers, Algeria, through Mali, Guinea, Brazil, Colombia, Panama, Nicaragua, Honduras, Belize and Mexico.

Now the alignment enters the United States in Louisiana.

As I said at the end of the last post, the alignment is moving into the Heart of the Empire Washitaw of the Washitaw Mu’urs, also known as the Ancient Ones, and the Mound Builders.

The Ancient Ones don’t refer to a people that existed a long time ago.  It refers to an Ancient People that are living in the present day.

The United Nations recognized the Washitaw Mu’urs as the Oldest Indigenous Civilization on Earth in 1993.

The Washitaw existed far, far back in time, way far, at least as far back as the time of Mu, hence their identification as Mu’urs. Empresses are the ancestral rulers of the Washitaw Empire.

The Washitaw were also called the Ouachita, Wichita, Choctaw, Etowah, Eutaw, Waseti, Waxhaw, Hatchita, Washoe, Uaxactun, to name a few variations of the name. There are many, many other Native American tribes that are also Washitaw, but are considered to be separate from them because of the historical hatchet job that was done to remove the Ancient Ones from the historical record, and to misdirect and misinform.

The Mississippi River Delta is nearby, southeast of Baton Rouge – close to the alignment, as is New Orleans – but not directly on it, like Baton Rouge.

Throughout this post, I will provide reasons why I believe there is an inverse, and intentionally-mirrored relationship between the Mississippi River region and the Nile River region in Africa.

To begin with, I have drawn a red line on this world map to demonstrate that there is a straight, west-to-east, linear relationship between the location of the Mississippi River Delta, and that of the Nile River Delta.

The Mississippi River, also known as the “Father of Waters,” flows southward 2,320 miles, or 3,730 kilometers…

… from its source at Lake Itasca in Minnesota, not far from Lake Superior, and the Great Lakes Region of North America…

…to the Mississippi Delta in southeastern Louisiana.

The Nile River, also known as the “Father of African Rivers,” and along with its major tributary, the White Nile, is 4,130 miles, or 6,650 kilometers, long.

The source of the White Nile is Lake Victoria, in what is called the Great Lakes Region of Central Africa.

The source of the Blue Nile is Lake Tana, a sacred lake in Ethiopia, and it joins the White Nile to become the Nile at Khartoum, the capital of Sudan.

From Khartoum, the Nile flows northward to the Nile Delta.

Here is a side-by-side comparison of the Mississippi River and the Nile River…

…as well as what the Mississippi River Delta and the Nile River Delta look like together in person.

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.

Now to the actual alignment, the first major city we come to being Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Baton Rouge is the State Capital of Louisiana, and its second-largest city.

There are two particular places in Baton Rouge that I would like to highlight.

The first are acknowledged ancient mounds at Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge. There are two mounds there, believed to be more than 5,000 years old, and considered to be part of the oldest mound system in North America, and part of an acknowledged Louisiana mound system. They are on the U. S. National Register of Historic Places.

But, mounds are actually everywhere, and typically not acknowledged as such.

Like at the old Louisiana State Capital Building in Baton Rouge. Besides the fact that it looks like a castle, I want to draw your attention to what the earthworks, also known as mounds, that it sits on top of…

…which look identical to the earthworks upon which the Akureyrikirkja, or Akureyri Church, sits on top of in Akureyri, Iceland…

…and to the earthworks upon which Mount Clare sits on top of in Baltimore, Maryland…

…and like what is seen at Cahokia Mounds, directly across the Mississippi River from St. Louis in Missouri…

…which looks very similar to what is seen at the locks of the Panama Canal, said to have been completed in 1914…

…the Caledonian Canal in Northern Scotland, said to have been completed in 1822…

…and the Bingley Five Rise Locks on the Leeds and Liverpool Canal in Bingley, England, said to have been completed in 1774. The Algiers Circle Alignment I am currently following will pass directly through Leeds, England, in the latter part of it.

The circle alignment passes through the town of Richwood, on its way to Monroe, Louisiana, the ancient Imperial Seat of the Washitaw Empire, in an area known as Washitaw Proper.

The recently deceased Empress of the Washitaw, Verdiacee Washitaw Turner Goston El Bey signifies many things, but for this example she was the mayor of Richwood, Louisiana, from 1975 – 1976.

Empress Verdiacee passed away in 2014, and her granddaughter Wendy Farica Washitaw succeeded her as the Washitaw Empress.

It is important to note that the Watson Brake Lunar Mounds are in the vicinity of Richwood, Watson Brake is an archeological site in Ouachita Parish, Louisiana, dated to 5,400 years ago, and is the oldest earthwork mound complex in North America, acknowledged to be older than the Egyptian Pyramids and Stonehenge in England. It is located on private land, so is not available for public viewing.

Stonehenge, which has an earthwork very similar to Watson Brake around its perimeter, according to what we are told, dates from starting at 3,100 BC, about 5,100 years ago.

Monroe is the parish seat of the Ouachita (pronounced Washitaw) Parish.

Monroe and West Monroe, which together are called the Twin Cities of northeast Louisiana, are situated on either side of the snaky, S-shaped Ouachita River.

Just like the snaky, s-shaped riverbends of the Mississippi River at Vicksburg, Mississippi…

…and Cape Girardeau, Missouri.

The Nile River has snaky, S-shaped riverbends as well, like at Juba in South Sudan…

…and here is a photo of the Nile in the Asyut Valley of Upper Egypt.

And here is a comparison of 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.

Back to Monroe, Louisiana. Monroe is the Imperial Seat of the Ancient Washitaw Empire, and this part of Louisiana is called Washitaw Proper. This is the Washitaw flag.

Thirty-eight miles northeast of Monroe, near the town of Epps, Louisiana, is Poverty Point.

It is said to have become known as Poverty Point because the farming was terrible here.

Its name is actually Awulmeka, and was an ancient sacred city of the Washitaw Mu’urs.

The story that we are told about all the mound sites is that indians wearing loincloths were responsible for building the perfectly geometrically- and astronomically-aligned mounds and earthworks, one basketful of dirt at a time. This is not the truth, and does not hold up with any scrutiny whatsoever.

These are the kinds of artifacts on display at Poverty Point as being representative of what was found here. While perhaps they were found here, I don’t think they were representative of the highly advanced and sophisticated ancient civilization that lived here.

The artifacts on display at Spiro Mounds in Oklahoma, like this one here, would be more representative of what was found at Poverty Point.

Muurish-American Master Adepts and Teachers in the present day are wisdom-keepers of ancient sacred Kemetic Mysteries and Knowledge about all Creation. They are living practitioners of Egyptian Yoga and Medu Neter, the language of the Egyptian Hieroglyphs.

In this spirit, I am going to the next place on the alignment in an area west of Little Rock, Arkansas, which has special sites that aren’t brought forward into public awareness, and represent how sacred ancient sites are deliberately covered-up.

The first place is Pinnacle Mountain, which is an Arkansas State Park.

I had first heard of Pinnacle Mountain when I learned there was an Earthkeeper Conference there in 2012.

I didn’t think much of the name Pinnacle Mountain until several years later, in 2015, when finding this image on-line.  This was the beginning of my “looking” and then “finding” out more and more.  It really got my attention!!!    

So I had to go there! It was about a 3 – 4 hour drive from where I was living at the time, and I went twice with friends. There is only place you can get this clear view of Pinnacle Mountain as a pyramid, which is from the Education Pond at the park.

And this next view of Pinnacle Mountain and two more pyramids is only obtainable from the Visitor Center Observation Deck on a relatively clear day.

Otherwise, access to all other views is completely cut off by private property and fences, and these are certainly not advertised as pyramids.

The alignment is also close to Mount Magazine, located outside of Paris, Arkansas. Mount Magazine is in the Ouachita Mountains of western Arkansas and eastern Oklahoma. The memory of the people is in the name. This is called Cameron’s Bluff at Mount Magazine.

I visited Mount Magazine several times, and this is where I started waking up to seeing what was really in the environment around me. As soon as I took to the turn-off for the road that skirts the bluff, I started seeing a wall.

It is such an ancient wall that there is some element of doubt. 

But there are some places you can really tell it is a built structure. 

The next place on the circle alignment is Springfield, the third largest city in Missouri, and the seat of Greene County.

This is the Pythian Castle in Springfield, said to have been built in 1913 as an orphanage, and similar in appearance to the Old Louisiana State House in Baton Rouge. It was said to have been built by the Knights of Pythias, a secret society founded in Washington, D.C in February of 1864, and was the first fraternal order to receive a charter by an Act of Congress. It is interesting to note that the Civil War didn’t end until 1865. For what purpose would Congress charter a fraternal secret society in wartime?

This is the Abou Ben Adhem Shrine Mosque in Springfield, said to have been built in 1923. Again, we just assume the people who said they built these places did so because we have no other information to go by.

Another example of this practice is at Ha Ha Tonka State Park in Camdenton, Missouri, north of Springfield on the alignment. The castle here was said to have been started by a Kansas businessman in 1905, finished by his sons in the 1920s before the stock market crash, and destroyed by fire in 1942.

Like the Yucatan Peninsula, Ha Ha Tonka has sinkholes, and caves, and even a huge so-called “natural” bridge…

…and Missouri’s twelfth largest spring.

I am going to pick up the alignment in the next post in Des Moines, Iowa.

Circle Alignments on the Planet Algiers – Part 7 Chetumal, Mexico to Merida, Mexico

My last post ended in Belize, at the ruins of the Mayan site Altun Ha, a short drive north of Belize City, and a short distance west of the Caribbean Sea.

This post picks up the circle alignment, starting and ending in Algiers, in Chetumal, the capital of the Mexican State of Quintana Roo, and the government seat of the Municipality of Othon P. Blanco, the man given the credit for the founding of Chetumal in 1898.

Quintana Roo is the youngest Mexican State, having been granted statehood in 1974. It started out as a Mexican Territory in 1902.

This is an aerial of Chetumal Bay, located off the Caribbean Sea on Mexico’s eastern coast, with arrows to highlight the geometric and angular features of the Bay…

…compared with similar-looking features at Lake Chapala, Mexico’s largest freshwater lake, shared between Jalisco and Michoacan States in western-central Mexico.

This is the curved and shaped Boulevard de Bahia in Chetumal, with a view of the Monument to the Flag, a white obelisk with a clock face on all four sides.

Here is a closer look at old-looking stone wall-feature found along the Boulevard’s sidewalks. It’s possible these walls could have already been standing for a long time, or these could be re-purposed stones found in the area…

…as there are a number of Mayan ruins surrounding Chetumal itself.

Like Oxtankah, a Mayan site located a short-drive from Chetumal in the town of Calderitas on Chetumal Bay…

…Kohunlich, west of Chetumal, and an active archeological site of what is being called a Mayan Ceremonial Center…

…and Dzibanche, slightly north of Kohunlich and west of Chetumal, it is an archeological site that was believed to be a major Mayan city, and an early capital of the Kan Dynasty, just to name a few of the spectacular Mayan ruins found here.

The alignment passes near Bacalar.

Bacalar Lake, also known as the “Lake of Seven Colors,” is Mexico’s second largest freshwater lake (Lake Chapala is the largest freshwater lake in Mexico). It is also referred to as the “Bora Bora of Mexico.”

This is what Bora Bora looks like :).

This picture of Bacalar Lake also shows the Cenote Azul Balacar, one of the deepest cenotes in the Yucatan, described as an abyss, believed to be 295-feet, or 90-meters, deep.

A Cenote is a deep well that connects to the sea or lake through underground rivers. Cenotes are found all over the Yucatan Peninsula.

Here are examples of other deep springs, or wells. One is Warm Mineral Springs, in North Port, Florida near Sarasota. Its nickname is “The Fountain of Youth.”

It is similarly deep, believed to be 250-feet, or 76-meters deep.

And Montezuma”s Well in Rimrock, Arizona, from which 1.5 million gallons of water comes up every day from an underground spring. This is a view from the top.

It is a very sacred place to Native Americans, and besides its veneration as a sacred site, it is very interesting. This is a view of the canal at the base of it.

There are many indications that this is an ancient man-made structure. I have been there many times, and have noted that is like a microcosm of different masonry styles that I have photographed in different places. This first photo I took at Montezuma’s Well in Arizona…

…and I took this photo at Macchu Picchu in Peru last May.

Likewise, I took this picture at Montezuma’s Well…

…and this one in Eureka Springs, Arkansas in 2015. These are a few, of many, examples of why I believe this.

All of these places have recurring similarities that I don’t believe are natural and random. I believe they have a sacred function, and serve a particular purpose on the planetary grid.

This is the Fortress of San Felipe in the town of Bacalar.

It is the fifth place that I have found since the circle alignment entered South America in Sao Luis in Brazil that either still has a star fort intact; has a heavily damaged one; or where the star fort was completely destroyed.

The alignment is heading across the Yucatan Peninsula to Merida, Mexico, through a region covered with the ruins of ancient Mayan sites.

The alignment goes directly through the ancient sites of Labna and Mayapan.

Labna is an archeological site and ceremonial center…

…compared with the Dananombe Ruins, in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe, which is on a different planetary alignment…

…and the Astana Tombs near Turpan in the Uighur Autonomous Region of China, which has the same design patterns in adobe brick, and also on a planetary alignment.

Mayapan is largely regarded as the last big Mayan civilization before the arrival of the Spanish.

It is 25 miles, or 40 kilometers, southeast of Merida.

Mayapan has a number of cenotes…

…and as many as twenty-six cenotes have been identified on the Mayapan site.

Next on the alignment is Merida, the capital and largest city of Yucatan State in Mexico.

It is also the southern apex of the North American Star Tetrahedron which I found after noticing major cities in North America lining up in lines, and from which my work in this blog is based. A lot of planetary alignments emanate from, or pass through, Merida.

Merida’s nickname is the “White City,” said to be for the white painted buildings, and use of limestone as a building material.

The White City was also the nickname for Algiers, Algeria…

…and a lost city in the Honduran rainforest, known simply as “The White City.”

Mogadishu in Somalia before the Somalian Civil War, which started in the early 1990s, was known as the “White Pearl of the Indian Ocean.

This is a historic building in Merida, Mexico…

…compared with the historic post office in Dubbo, Australia, in the Province of New South Wales, on a different alignment.

If you are new to my work, my premise is that there was a unified, ancient, advanced civilization that was aligned with itself, the heavens and the stars, and that it existed up until relatively recently. Surprisingly recently.

This civilization that has been removed from our collective memory. My blog is dedicated to providing compelling evidence for why I believe this.

In the next blog post, I will be picking up the alignment in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. The circle alignment that began in Algiers, Algeria, moves into the Heart of the Empire Washitaw of the Washitaw Mu’urs, also known as the Ancient Ones.

Circle Alignments on the Planet Algiers – Part 6 Leimus, Honduras to Belize City, Belize

My last post ended on the Miskito Coast of Nicaragua, at the Miskito Cays, off the northeast coast of Nicaragua. This region was also known as the Miskito Kingdom. I am picking up the alignment in this post in Leimus, Honduras.

As I shared in the last post, this is the Coat of Arms of the Miskito, or Mosquito Monarchy, or La Mosquitia in Honduras.

Makes me wonder how this guy got this name in English. The Mosquito Coast is named for the indigenous people who lived here, not the insect as perhaps we have been led to believe by historical omission.

The next place on the alignment is Leimus, in the Honduran Department of Gracias a Dios, also in the region of La Mosquitia that is historically part of the Miskito Kingdom that includes the Nicaragua Coast.

It is situated on the border between Nicaragua and Honduras, serving as a border crossing in the remote wilderness of this region.

It is situated on the Rio Coco, or River Wanki to the Miskitos, and which forms the border between Honduras and Nicaragua, and which is the longest river in Central America.

The Rio Coco originates in the Somoto Canyon, in northwestern Nicaragua, near where the Pan-American Highway crosses into Nicaragua.

Since we have been given no other explanation for how canyons came into being, we assume they were created by natural forces.

Yet here is a close up of the same photo to highlight where visible surfaces of stone are dressed with straight edges.

La Mosquitia has the largest wilderness area in Central America, comprised of mangrove swamps, lagoons, rivers, savannahs, and tropical rain forests.

It is considered a biodiversity hotspot with all of the different plant and animal species that are found here, and a number of the endangered species.

Like the Honduran Emerald Hummingbird, one of the five most rare bird species in the world…

…and the metallic-looking Honduran Chrysina, a Golden Jewel Scarab beetle, one of the rarest scarab species in the world.

The alignment crosses the Rio Platano, which has a Biosphere Reserve, and a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1982. It is part of La Mosquitia, northwest of Leimus. It is part of what is called the “Great Lungs” of Central America.

It is the most significant nature reserve in Honduras, and has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in Danger since 2011.

Threats include, but are not limited to, illegal activities like logging, hunting, and clearing land to graze cattle.

I found this picture taken at a location within the biosphere reserve, with its huge, block-shaped rocks with straight edges.

There are at least 200 sites within the Rio Platano Biosphere Reserve of La Mosquitia, that are considered archeological sites, like the legendary White City believed to be inside the red lines shown here.

Several expeditions have searched for the White City since 1920. Most recently, in 2012, a team of American and Honduran archeologists mapped large plazas, mounds, earthworks, and a pyramid.

As well as different types of stone artifacts, like this one…

…which is reminiscent of this feature of Quillarumiyoc, an ancient site outside of Cusco, Peru.

Also, this is a picture of the Rio Platano in Honduras…

…compared with the Brisbane River in Brisbane, Australia…

…and a historic photo of the Red River in Winnipeg, in the Canadian Province of Manitoba. These are a just few examples of the many snaky, S-shaped rivers I have found on these planetary alignments around the world.

On its way to Trujillo, a city and municipality in the Honduran Department of Colon on the northern Caribbean coast.

It is situated on the coast at the foot of Mounts Capira and Calentura, which together form the Capira and Calentura National Park, which the alignment also passes through.

This is a view of the nicely curved shape of Trujillo Bay from the top of one of these mountains.

Trujillo is considered to be the frontier between civilization and the jungles of La Mosquitia. It is even possible to find exclusive residential homes here.

Trujillo is considered one of the oldest cities in the Americas, when Columbus landed here in 1502 on his fourth and last journey.

There is a star fort here in Trujillo – the Fortaleza de Santa Barbara.

Here is the Fortaleza de Santa Barbara from another angle.

Like with so many things, star forts have been ignored in conventional history, and their existence doesn’t fit with the historical narrative we have been given because star forts are found all over the world, with the same basic star pattern, but differing in design complexity.

Moving off the mainland of Honduras at Trujillo, 40 miles in to the Caribbean Sea, the alignment crosses the largest of the Bay Islands, Roatan. Cruise ships stop here, and it is a popular scuba diving and eco-tourism destination.

Roatan is almost entirely surrounded by the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef which is the largest barrier reef in the Caribbean, and the second-largest in the world after the Great Barrier Reef off the northeastern coast of Australia.

It begins off the coast of the Yucatan Peninsula, and continues southward into Belize’s waters, across these Bay Islands off the coast of Honduras, and ends of the northeastern coast of Nicaragua where the Miskito Cays are located.

Coxen Hole is the island’s largest city and port, on the southwestern shore of the island. I would like to draw your attention to the block-shaped rocks in the foreground of the photograph…

…which are found similarly arranged in different places around the world, like Mukalla in Yemen…

…and Lake Jingyue on the Songliao Plain, also known as the Manchurian Plain, in Changchun, China.

This is West Bay Beach on Roatan.

And the view from further out on West Bay Beach has a similar shoreline…

…to what is seen at other beaches, like Vaja Beach in Korcula, Croatia….

…and Myrtos Beach on the Island of Kefalonia in Greece.

The next place on the alignment is Belize City, the largest city in Belize, and the former capital of British Honduras from 1862 until 1970.

We are told that Haulover Creek is a coastal stream which runs through the center of Belize City, and is an inlet of the Belize River. Haulover Creek is looking more like a canal to me than a creek…

And of which Belize City has more than a few canals…

…apparently, it is a city of canals.

The Belize River itself is another example of a snaky, S-shaped river.

An hour north from Belize City, or a 31 mile drive (and six miles west of the Caribbean Sea shoreline) in Belize are the Altun Ha Mayan Ruins, a 44-acre, or 18-hectare, complex with two main plazas and thirteen structures…

…which is also famous as a wildlife refuge, home for diverse species including toucans…

…and iguanas.

I will end this post here, and pick up the alignment in Chetumal, Mexico, in the next post.

Circle Alignments on the Planet Algiers – Part 5 Panama Canal to the Miskito Coast, Nicaragua

My last post ended in Panama City, Panama, the capital and largest city of Panama, and the Pacific Entrance of the Panama Canal.

I am picking up the alignment that starts, and ends, in Algiers, as it tracks over length of the Panama Canal.

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. This is President Teddy Roosevelt posing at the controls of a steam shovel at the Culebra Cut of the Panama Canal in 1906.

The Panama Canal opened on August 15th, 1914…

…just in time for the beginning of World War I, which started on July 28th, 1914.

The completion of the Panama Canal is said to have greatly reduced travel time for ships to travel between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, and allowing them to avoid the hazardous Cape Horn route via the Strait of Magellan at the tip of South America.

A Strait is defined as a narrow channel of water joining two larger bodies of water.

The Strait of Magellan is a navigable sea route in Southern Chile that separates South America from Tierra del Fuego, and is considered the most important natural passage between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. Interesting pyramidal-shaped mountain in the background here. Volcano? Well, at least that is what we have been taught to think.

Looks like a pyramid to me….

For comparison, this is the Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun in Visoko, Bosnia, before archeological excavation work started here in 2005, revealing an entire pyramid complex.

So what I am curious about now is how the Spanish Conquest of Peru and South America is supposed to have happened.

We are told 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. Isthmus is defined as a narrow strip of land connecting to larger land areas.

The Spanish 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, about 1.7 miles, or 2.75 kilometers, in elevation! It is generally agreed that altitude sickness typically tends to start occurring at 8,000 feet. Characterized by headache, nausea, shortness of breath and vomiting.

Apparently, Pizarro and his 128 men marched to Cajamarca from Piure, on the coast of modern-day Peru. If the Conquistadors arrived by sea, according to the information we have been given in our history, they would have had to come by way of the hazardous Strait of Magellen, which had just been explored by Magellen in 1520, twelve years earlier, and in the opposite direction from Panama City. This tells me there was some kind of viable waterway in Panama already.

This is a picture of earthworks at locks in the Panama Canal…

…compared with the earthworks at the Caledonian Canal locks in Northern Scotland, said to have been started in 1803, and completed in 1822 by Scottish Engineer Thomas Telford.

Keep in mind the Industrial Revolution was just getting started in Scotland. For example, the hot blast furnace for smelting iron was invented and implemented in 1828 in Scotland. This was after the Caledonian Canal was said to have been completed.

Back to the French and canal-building. The French Engineer Ferdinand de Lesseps is said to have built the sea-level Suez Canal…

…connecting the Mediterranean Sea and the Red Sea through the Isthmus of Suez between 1859 and 1869.

He was also the guy said to have been behind the what we are told was the failed French effort to build the Panama Canal.

I just wanted to demonstrate how many inconsistencies and holes there are in the history we have been given to explain how certain things came about, as well as how canals were built and who built them.

These are sophisticated engineering projects, built during times we are told we did not have advanced technology, which one would expect would be needed to build this monumental infrastructure.

I have found canal systems in cities around the world. The best known is in Venice, Italy, but Venice is far from being the only one.

The Advanced Ancient Civilization was a maritime civilization, as comfortable on water as on land.

I believe Moorish Master Masons of the Advanced Ancient Civilization built all of these canals systems.

The Moors were the custodians of the Ancient Egyptian mysteries, according to George G. M. James in his book “Stolen Legacy,” and they still are. I will be bringing up this subject again soon, as we will be going through the Heart of the Ancient Washitaw Empire in Louisiana on this particular circle alignment. While there are a number of whopping big secrets that have been kept from Humanity, this one ranks at the top of the list!!!

This is a section of the Suez Canal in Egypt, with stone walls on either side of a very straight channel that look sheared off evenly with each other.

Napoleon’s teams of experts discovered ancient canals through this region in 1798. Is this why the French ended up with whatever they did at the Suez Canal, I wonder?

Back to Panama. The alignment – and the Panama Canal – cross over the Continental Divide on its way across the Isthmus of Panama to Lake Gatun, just south of the next major city at Colon, Panama.

This interesting land feature is located where the Panama Canal and the Continental Divide cross each other, and actually looks like an old mining site to me… this one, the Boddington Gold Mine in Western Australia near Perth.

This is Lake Gatun. It is a large artificial lake which forms a major part of the Panama Canal, carrying ships across for 21 miles, or 33 kilometers. Lake Gatun was created between 1907 and 1913 from the damming of the Chagres River. At that time it was the largest man-make lake ever created. I have my own beliefs about man-made lakes having dual purposes – creating infrastructure, and covering up ancient sites. See my blog post “On Chimney Rocks and Man-Made Lakes” for more information in this subject.

Now we come to the city of Colon, the capital of Colon Province, and a sea port on the Caribbean Sea…

…and near what serves as the Atlantic Ocean entrance of the Panama Canal.

The city is said to have been founded in 1850 as the Atlantic Terminal of the Panama Railroad, which was said to have been under rush construction to meet the demand for a fast way to get to California for the Gold Rush. This is a historical photo of the massive and ornate office buildings of the Panama Railroad Atlantic Terminal…

…and this is a historic photo of the Old Quarter of Colon, circa 1933.

Colon has a history of fires. The first was called the Burning of Colon in 1885, which took place during the Colombian Civil War.

Then there was the Great Colon Fire of 1940, in which fire destroyed one-third of the city…

…and displaced many city residents, who were forced to migrate from Colon when their homes were lost.

This is an aerial of Fort San Lorenzo, on the Caribbean coast at the village of Chagres, near Colon.

It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, said to have been built in 1587.

Henry Morgan, a Welsh pirate, ordered the destruction of Fort San Lorenzo in 1670.

He is said to have invaded Panama City the following year from Fort San Lorenzo, and destroyed what was Old Panama, or Panama Viejo…

…which had a similar fort of which only ruins remain. This is a diorama of what Panama Viejo would have looked like before its destruction.

There is one more place I would like to look at before leaving Panama, and that is Chagres National Park, just east of Colon, and encompassing 300,000 acres, or 129,000 hectares, of Colon Province.

I have found that what hasn’t been destroyed of the Advanced Ancient Civilization is preserved in national, state, and local parks around the world.

So for starters, this is the park sign for Chagres National Park, which has stonework pictured…

…as does this sign for Roman Nose State Park in Watonga, Oklahoma…

…and this one at Lake Overholser in West Oklahoma City, which is an artificial lake, like pretty much all of the lakes in Oklahoma. They are telling us something here with this. It’s like their way (the people who know about the ancient civilization) of telling us without their really telling us they are telling us.

Also, from Chagres National Park is this S-shaped river bend of the Chagres, which is a signature of the ancient civilization…

…like the Brisbane River in Brisbane, Australia…

…and the Yangtze River in China

There are also waterfalls in Chagres National Park…

…compared with the waterfall I found back in Algeria, in the Chrea National Park in the Atlas Mountains. I always find waterfalls on the alignments as they are an important part of the planetary grid system.

From Colon in Panama, the alignment crosses the Caribbean Sea to Puerto Cabezas, also known as Bilwi in the Miskito Language, and is the capital of the North Caribbean Coast Autonomous Region of Nicaragua.

The municipality and this entire region are indigenous lands.

This is what a section of the coastline at Puerto Cabezas looks like…

…compared with this beach at Manzanita on the western coast of Mexico near Colima.

Puerto Cabezas is at the northern end of Nicaragua’s Miskito Coast, also known as the Mosquito Coast and the Miskito Kingdom. It runs from the southern coast of Honduras and pretty much the length of the Nicaraguaran Coast along the Caribbean Sea. It is named after the Miskito people, and not the insect mosquito.

The Miskito are considered a First Nation People, having occupied the North Caribbean Coast of Nicaragua for thousands of years.

It was a kingdom until the colonial powers got involved, starting with the British in 1740. Then things changed over time.

The last actual Miskito king was His Majesty George Augustus Frederic from 1842 to 1865. This is the Coat of Arms of the Miskito Monarchy…

…and from there the lineage continued with Hereditary Chiefs, with the last one being His Eminence Robert Henry Clarence from 1890 to 1908. He was born in 1872, so he would be the young man in this photo with his Executive Council.

The Cayos Miskitos, or the Miskito Cays, are part of the North Caribbean Coast of Nicaragua off the northeastern coast of Nicaragua, and are in a protected status.

They are uninhabited except for wooden fishing villages supported on poles above the water.

I am going to end this post here, and will pick up the alignment in Honduras.

Circle Alignments on the Planet Algiers – Part 4 Concordia, Colombia to Panama City, Panama

So far in this series, tracking the circle alignment that begins, and ends, in Algiers, the journey has taken us through Algeria, Mali, and Guinea in West Africa, across the Atlantic Ocean over the Equatorial Counter Current, to where the alignment enters South America in Brazil. The last post ended in Manaus, Brazil, the largest city in the Amazon Rainforest.

The starting point on the alignment for this post is Concordia, a town in the Colombia Department of Antioquia, in the Southwestern Subregion of the Department.

It is said to have been founded in 1830.

It is located in the mountains, and coffee farming is the primary economic activity for the people who live here.

Coffee Community Aid operates La Josefina Cooperative in Concordia, and provides direct assistance to improve the quality of life for the people who live here.

The average farm size is 4 hectares, or about 10 acres, producing 600 pounds of green coffee…

… or 480 pounds of roasted coffee each year.

Concordia, in Antioquia, is just north of a vast region of Colombia which this alignment passes through, known as the Coffee Triangle, Coffee Growing Axis, or the Colombian Coffee Region. It is comprised of the Departments of Caldas, Quindio, Risaraldo, and Tolima.

Nestled within the Coffee Triangle is a UNESCO World Heritage Site – the Coffee Cultural Landscape of Colombia (CCLC) – designated since 2011.

This region is in the central and western foothills of the Andes Mountain Range.

Interestingly, there is a direct connection to Africa with this piece of information. The coffee plant, or Coffea Arabica, originated in Ethiopia.

This is a photo of an Ethiopian coffee farm where the Sidamo coffee bean is grown, in the Province of Sidamo in the Ethiopian Highlands.

So the growing of coffee is freely acknowledged to have originated in the Ethiopian highlands.

It is said, however, to have spread through the Arab and European worlds in the 16th- and 17th-centuries, and that it came to South America in the 18th-century.

According to this map, there is a convoluted history story given to us showing how the Coffea Arabica plant was distributed around the world, with the point of origin in Ethiopia. It shows that Ethiopia’s neighboring countries of Kenya and Tanzania didn’t get the coffee plant until the late 1800s, and Cameroon, almost directly across the continent from Ethiopia, didn’t get the coffee plant until the early 1900s. Hmmmm.

I read that it was said no one is exactly sure who inhabited the mountainous regions of Colombia in pre-Columbian times.

This is where the available history on the Antioquia Department gets really interesting. While it does not mention Ethiopia, it does mention other things that one would not expect to find here.

For one thing, the Spanish to English translation of Antioquiao is Antioch.

What is the name Antioch doing in Colombia? Antioch, we are told, was an important city in Ancient Syria.

Prior to the Colombian Constitution of 1886, Antioquia was a state with its own sovereign government. This map shows the boundaries of Antioquia in 1863.

Prior to the Spanish Conquest, this area was primarily inhabited by the Muisca, an indigenous people here the formed the Muisca Confederation. Their language was called Muysca or Mosca.

If this is the first time you are hearing of the Muisca, we are told they were one of the four advanced civilizations of the Americas encountered by the Conquistadors, the other three being the much better known Mayas, Aztecs, and Incas. Why would they be removed from the history books, I wonder?

Here are some examples of their workmanship in gold. This conch shell is one…

…and this ceremonial raft is another.

From estimates of a population through this region of up to three million people at the time of the arrival of Spanish Conquistadors, the modern population number for the Muisca people is approximately 14,000.

This is the pre-Columbian Muisca archeoastronomical site, in Villa de Leyva in Colombia, called El Infiernito. This means “Little Hell” in Spanish.

It is comprised of several earthworks surrounding a setting of pink sandstone menhirs (upright standing stones). To date, a total of 109 standing stones have been excavated. It served as an astronomical observatory, for at least one of its purposes.

The other interesting thing I want to bring forward about Antioquia’s history is this.

There is considerable evidence about a historical Basque presence here, especially with regards to Basque surnames in the population, and Basque terminology in the language.

The Basques are ancient people, with their homeland being considered Basque Country in Spain and France. The language and DNA of the Basques are distinct. Their language, Euskara, is the only pre-Indo- European language that is still spoken in Europe.

While there has been significant Basque emigration here from Basque Country over the last couple of centuries, for researchers into this subject, it does not easily explain the prevalence of the use and retention of the Basque language here, in a place conquered and colonized by the Spanish. The Spanish dialect of Antioquia is heavily influenced by the Basque language, indicative of a long-time presence in this region of Colombia.

Moving further up the circle alignment in Colombia from Concordia is Bogota, the capital and largest city of Colombia. Administered as the Capital District, it is has the same administrative status as Colombia’s other departments.

Bogota was said to have been founded in 1538 by the Spanish Conquistador Jimenez de Quesada, after he somehow managed to conquer the powerful Muisca.

It was the capital of the New Kingdom of Granada, which included lands of present-day Colombia, Venezuala and Panama.

This was the flag of the New Kingdom of Granada.

Bogota is located in the center of Colombia on a high plateau known as the Bogota Savannah in the eastern ranges of the Colombian Andes…

…which is part of the larger Altiplano Cundiboyacense,  which is a high plateau in the eastern Cordillera of the Colombian Andes.

Tequendama Falls are 20 miles southwest of Bogota, and formed from where the Bogota River reaches the southwestern edge of the plateau. If you have been following my work, I have shared that I consistently find waterfalls on planetary alignments.

The definition of a plateau is an area of highland consisting of relatively flat terrain that is raised significantly above the surrounding area, often with one or more sides with steep slopes. Plateau is one of the code words used to cover-up ancient infrastructure. In this photograph of the Altiplano Cundiboyacense you can see relatively flat ground in the fore- to mid-ground.

In the center of this next photo of the Altiplano Cundiboyacense, there are smooth and rounded shapes that would be called hills, but actually look like mounds or earthworks…

…and are compared with an acknowledge earthwork called the Skipsea Castle Motte in East Yorkshire, England that it is being studied as part of the Round Mound Project by the University of Reading and the Scottish Universities Environmental Research Center…

…as is Castle Hill in Thetford, England.

Another one of the recurring features on these alignments are canal systems, and Bogota is no exception. This canal is in Suba, in the 11th locality of Bogota, in the northwest part of the city…

…and this one is in the Parque el Virrey in North Bogota.

The next place is Medellin, which is the capital of Antioquia, and Colombia’s second-largest city.

We are told the Museo el Castillo was modelled after the French chateaux of the Loire Valley and built by the first architectural firm in Medellin in the 1930s for a prominent Medellin family, becoming an art museum in 1971.

This is a chateau in the Loire Valley in France, the Chateau Chenonceau, said to have been built in the early 1500s.

My question is, based on what we have been taught about our history, how did they build these two castles when they are said to have been built? We are not supposed to have had advanced building technology in these eras, and we can’t even build with stone like this today.

I think something is going on with falsely attributing builders all over the world. See my dedicated blog post on this subject “Castles and Ruins in North America” for more information on why I say this.

Here is another example of what I am talking about. This is the Uribe Palace of Culture, in Medellin’s Botero Plaza…

…said to have been built between 1925 and 1932…

…compared with The Seo, or Cathedral of San Salvador in Zaragoza, Spain, said to have been consecrated in 1318.

The Seo is part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site Mudejar Architecture of Aragon. Mudejar is the name given to Moors of El-Andalus during the Christian Reconquista.

While the Moors are given credit in our history books for ruling Spain from 711 A.D. to 1492 A.D. we are given pretty much the same dates for the time period of the Christian Reconquista.

One more thing I want to share before leaving the Medellin area. This is the Stone of El Penol in Guatape, Colombia, which is a short distance east of Medellin in Antioquia.

The new town of El Penol claims the granite monolith as their own too, and the old town of El Penol is underwater because of a hydroelectric dam project.

As a matter of fact, the rock rises from the bottom of the Penol-Guatape hydroelectric dam.

The staircase is the only way to get up to the top, where there is this brick observatory and other infrastructure. However they did it, it would be a heck of a job getting all the building supplies up to the top, much less build everything. Just saying.

Next the alignment crosses over Panama’s Isla del Rey, or King Island, the largest of the Pearl Islands in the Gulf of Panama. the port town of San Miguel on the northwestern coast of the island.

On a modern pop culture note, the 2003 series of “Survivor: Pearl Islands” was filmed on Isla del Rey. I actually think I saw all of that one. I stopped watching “Survivor,” and television, a long time ago.

The alignment crosses mainland Panama at Panama City, the capital and largest city of Panama.

The city is located at the Pacific Entrance of the Panama Canal.

Panama City was said to have been founded by the Spanish Conquistador Pedro Arias D’Avila in 1519, and used as the starting point for the expeditions that conquered the Inca Empire in Peru.

Panama Viejo, the original city, is said to have been destroyed by fire after being sacked by the Welsh pirate Henry Morgan in 1671.

This is a diorama showing was Panama Viejo would have looked like before 1671, which apparently included a star fort at this location.

And now that I am looking at the actual ruins of Panama Viejo, I question that fire was the only thing that destroyed this place. Maybe he torched the place, but this is stone. It would take more than fire to create the ruins seen here to day.

The still existing historical district of Panama City, Casco Viejo, we are told was built and settled in 1673, immediately after the destruction of Panama Viejo.

This is a street view of the Casco Viejo in Panama City…

…compared with Old Sao Luis back where the alignment enters South America on the Brazilian coast. The streets are curving in opposite directions, but in the old towns of both places, the architecture is similar, and both streets are steeply sloping. Both are designated as UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

Another example of this striking similarity is the Plaza de la Independencia, the main square of Spanish Casco Vieja in Panama City…

…compared with the old historic center of Portuguese Sao Luis, back on the coast of Brazil.

I am going to end this post here, and pick up the alignment in the next post as it tracks over the Panama Canal.
