THE MYSTERY OF THE SHAFTS

Pyramid Mysteries

Since the beginning of modern archaeology, the Great Pyramid has been a source of scientific controversy and sometimes of heated debate – about the way it was built or the incredible precision with which it was aligned to the cardinal points. However, for the past seven years, the so-called airshafts of the Great Pyramid have fostered a very wide interest. It all started with the discovery made by Rudolf Gantenbrink in 1993. What began as a technical study of the King's chamber shafts ended with an intriguing discovery in one of the Queen's chamber shafts.

Christianity

All national institutions of churches, whether Jewish, Christian, or Turkish, appear to me no other than human inventions set up to terrify and enslave mankind, and monopolize power and profit.
-Thomas Paine, founding father of the U.S.

Once there was a time when all people believed in God and the church ruled. This time is called the Dark Ages.

Thinker's Quote

It is well enough that people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a revolution before tomorrow morning.
Henry Ford

Liberals

"If by a “Liberal” they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who cares about the welfare of the people — their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights, and their civil liberties — someone who believes we can break through the stalemate and suspicions that grip us in our policies abroad, if that is what they mean by a “Liberal,” then I’m proud to say I’m a “Liberal.” ~ John F. Kennedy, 1960

A conservative is a man with two perfectly good legs who, however, has never learned how to walk forward.
~Franklin D. Roosevelt, radio speech, 26 October 1939
