Magicians of the Gods book coverJoin us Wednesday September 28, 2016 at 6:30 PM for “Magicians of the Gods” presented by Jim Patterson.

Graham Hancock’s 1996 multi-million bestseller Fingerprints of the Gods remains an astonishing, deeply controversial, wide-ranging investigation of the mysteries of our past and the evidence for Earth’s lost civilization. Twenty years later, Hancock returns with the sequel to his seminal work, Magicians of the Gods, filled with completely new, scientific and archaeological evidence, which has only recently come to light.

The evidence revealed in his latest book continues to support the theory of an advanced civilization that flourished during the Ice Age and was destroyed in the global cataclysms between 12,800 and 11,600 years ago. But there were survivors – known to later cultures by names such as ‘the Sages’, ‘the Magicians’, ‘the Shining Ones’, and ‘the Mystery Teachers of Heaven’. They travelled the world in their great ships doing all in their power to keep the spark of civilization burning. They settled at key locations – Gobekli Tepe in Turkey, Baalbek in the Lebanon, Giza in Egypt, ancient Sumer, Mexico, Peru and across the Pacific where a huge pyramid has recently been discovered in Indonesia. Everywhere they went these ‘Magicians of the Gods’ brought with them the memory of a time when mankind had fallen out of harmony with the universe and paid a heavy price.

Jim will present an overview of the book and the evidence presented within – including what Hancock feels caused the global cataclysms that destroyed those lost antediluvian civilizations. As always, we’ll have plenty of time for Q&A discussion.

August 10, 2016 – Lost Technologies of Ancient Egypt

Ancient Engineering, Megalithic Architecture No Comments »

51Pd6tXrDEL._SX331_BO1,204,203,200_Join us Wednesday August 10, 2016 at 6:30 PM for “Lost Technologies of Ancient Egypt – Advanced Engineering in the Temples of the Pharaohs” presented by Jim Patterson.

In this 60-minute DVD Christopher Dunn presents a stunning stone-by-stone analysis of key Egyptian monuments, including the statue of Ramses II at Luxor and the fallen crowns that lay at its feet.  His modern day engineering expertise provides a unique view into the sophisticated technology used to create these famous ancient monuments.

Using modern digital photography, computer-aided design software, and metrology instruments, Dunn  exposes the extreme precision of these monuments and the type of advanced manufacturing expertise necessary to produce them.  His examination of the mysterious underground tunnels and stone boxes of the Serapeum illuminates the finest examples of precision engineering on the planet.  He also addresses the shortcomings of the orthodox explanation for the quarrying of obelisks, particularly the gargantuan ‘Unfinished Obelisk.’

Providing never-before-seen evidence, Dunn’s research shows that while absent from the archaeological record, highly refined tools, techniques, and even mega-machines must have been used in Egypt.

All sincere seekers are welcome.  $10 for pay-as-you-go attendees; No charge for LES pre-pay Members.

October 7, 2015 – Mysterious Stone Chambers & Giants in Ancient America

Ancient Engineering, Ancient History No Comments »

JV2

Join us Wednesday October 7,  2015 at 6:30 PM for “Mysterious Stone Chambers & Giants in Ancient America (Jim Vieira) presented by Jim Patterson.

Strange stone tunnels, chambers, walls and cairns found throughout New England and other portions of North America. Skeletons uncovered in burial mounds that range from 7- to 9-ft in height, some with ceremonial copper ornaments and armor that indicate an advanced culture. Many of these over-sized skulls had double-rows of teeth.  Who built these structures? When? Why? Who was this lost race?

Stonemason Jim Vieira has been exploring these stone structures for years as a member of the Northeast Antiquities Research Association, which has studied these them for 60 years. Vieira’s research over the last 20+ years has led him down a bizarre road of intrigue and mystery surrounding the races and built structures of Ancient America. Vieira has compiled thousands of accounts of giant skeleton reports from the New York Times, Smithsonian Ethnology Reports, American Antiquarian, Scientific American as well as town and county histories to make the case that the history of our past has not only been deliberately covered up, but is vastly different then what we are told.

His 17 minute 2012 TEDx talk has been removed/banned by TED. We’ll watch a 60 minute video presentation from 2012 by Jim about these incredible anomalies reported well over a thousand times, but are excluded from the history books.  We’ll follow the video with an open discussion.

September 10, 2014 (Wednesday) – Megalithic Anachronisms: The Mystery of Ancient Impossibilities in Massive Stone Architecture

Ancient Engineering, Ancient History, Megalithic Architecture 1 Comment »

The mighty Trilithon of Baalbek. Lebanon. Three stones each 1,000 tons, 26 feet high in an ancient temple wall!

[Click for a larger photo] The mighty Trilithon of Baalbek. Lebanon. Three stones each 900 tons, 26 feet high in an ancient temple wall. Sitting on top of a layer of 27 monolithic stones of 380 tons each. All with a razor thin gap between stones!


Join us Wednesday September 10, 2014 at 6:30 PM for “Megalithic Anachronisms – The Mystery of Ancient Impossibilities in Massive Stone Architecture“ presented by Jim Patterson.

Back by popular demand is a presentation made in the early days of LES in May 2011.  Catch this 2nd edition now before another 3 years goes by!

In this compelling session you’ll be shown a large number of examples of ancient megalithic (monolithic stone) architecture from around the world that shows ancient man was far more advanced than what we’re taught in the history books.

You’ll see . . . .

  • Exactly why the pervasive granite, diorite and andesite statues and stones cut throughout the ancient world cannot be hewn by copper chisels or pounding balls as claimed;
  • Stones cut, shaped and finished by the ancients that are so hard we, as modern man, have to use very recent technology (hardened steel and diamond cutting tools) to begin to replicate them;
  • Constructions containing stones up to 900 tons that we’ve only just been able to lift and move within the last 50 to 100 years of technology;
  • Stone joints that are so tight and stone surfaces that are so flat they scream “space age precision”;
  • The failed modern attempts to replicate the skills of the ancients.

The ancients were Masters Of Stone – phenomenal quarrying, cutting, transporting, lifting, fitting and finishing capabilities that plainly show the simple explanations of archaeologists (with no engineering knowledge) fall far, far short of reality.

July 9, 2014 (Wednesday) – The Incredible 2,000 Year-Old Greek Computer: Antikythera Mechanism

Ancient Engineering, Ancient History No Comments »

NOTE: Effective June 2014 with our new location, we’re going to move our meetings to the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of the month.

S_AM01Join the Louisville Esoteric Society on Wednesday, July 9, 2014 at 6:30 PM for our next meeting:   The Incredible 2,000 Year-Old Greek Computer: Antikythera Mechanism presented by Jim Patterson.

In 1900 a Greek sponge diving crew discovered the remains of a Roman shipwreck on the floor of the Mediterranean Sea off the coast of the tiny Greek island of Antikythera. Among the treasures brought up by these divers were the most exquisite examples of ancient Greek marble and bronze statues ever discovered. These now grace the halls of the National Museum of Archaeology in Athens. Based on artifacts retrieved it is believed that the shipwreck is from about 100-80 BC (2,000 years ago).

Also discovered and retrieved were lumps of corroded bronze and wood that didn’t appear to be anything of importance. Not until the 1950s did someone notice these chunks of crud stored away in the backroom of the museum were some sort of complex geared mechanism. This was a shock! A mechanism of this sort shouldn’t have existed in the Greek and Roman era.

Since the 1950’s this mechanism has been thoroughly studied using increasingly advanced technologies in attempts to ascertain: Who could have created it? Where was it built – and when? How many gears did it have? What did all the gears do? What was its purpose? Why was it on this Roman ship? How could anyone in ancient Greece or Rome design and actually build such a device? All evidence points to an extremely complex astronomical clock, small enough to hold on your lap! In the modern era, historians believed that early astronomical clocks weren’t even starting to be developed until the 14th century (early Renaissance). Yet here we have a very complex astronomically geared device discovered in an ancient Roman shipwreck of about 80 BC. It shouldn’t be there! It was a treasure to surpass all treasures!

We’ll watch two high quality videos showing the discovery, research, theories of its origins, an amazing hand-built working model, and most incredibly… the superb technologies used in the most recent analysis in 2012 to discover elements of the mechanism never before known. After the videos we’ll share some exciting details about what’s coming up in September of this year to potentially increase the breadth of discoveries of this shipwreck and device. Join us and discover how one unbelievable mechanism is rewriting history.

October 23, 2012 – The Mysterious Origins of Man: Rewriting Human History

Ancient Engineering, Ancient History, Megalithic Architecture No Comments »

Join us on Tuesday October 23, 2012 for our discussion group topic, The Mysterious Origins of Man: Rewriting Human History” presented by Jim Patterson.

The creators of the Emmy Award Winning Mystery of the Sphinx present a revolutionary new film that examines one of our greatest mysteries: Man’s origins.  Hosted by Charlton Heston, this film challenges what we are being taught about human evolution and the rise of early civilization.  A new breed of scientific investigators present startling evidence that the academic community has quietly ignored.

* Did humans evolve from the ape?  Human artifacts and bones have been found that are older than the theory of evolution allows.

* Did humans live at the time of the dinosaur?  Human footprints have been found next to dinosaur footprints dated to over 100 million years ago.

* Could the “Lost Continent of Atlantis” be buried under two miles of ice?  Graham Hancock reveals how ancient maps may hold the answer to the mystery of Atlantis.

* A megalithic city high in the Bolivian Andes has been dated to 15,000 BC.  What unknown civilization could have built it?  If this evidence is allowed to speak for itself, human history on this planet may be radically different than what is accepted today.

Includes the facts about this amazing mystery and a fascinating series of spellbinding interviews with researchers, scientists, and the best known, most credible authorities in the world today.

This film aired on NBC years ago and caused quite an uproar among orthodox historians!  Come out and enjoy an interesting look at alternative history.

All sincere seekers are welcome.  A $5 donation is suggested.

October 11, 2011 Discussion – “The Mystery of the Sphinx”

Ancient Engineering, Ancient History, Megalithic Architecture 2 Comments »

On Tuesday October 11, 2011 we watched “The Mystery of the Sphinx ” – presented by Jim Patterson.  In this DVD hosted by Charlton Heston that originally aired on NBC in 1993, John Anthony West explored the exciting theories and discoveries about the most famous monument of all time, the Great Sphinx of Egypt.

Does the evidence of water erosion prove that the Sphinx is at least 10,000 years old?  How were huge 200-ton stone blocks lifted into place to build the Sphinx Temple and Valley Temple?  Famous American psychic Edgar Cayce predicted a hidden room called the Hall of Records beneath the Sphinx.  The seismograph found it.  What can it tell us?  Is there a vanished civilization?  Can the legend of Atlantis be true?

This DVD shared the geological evidence that rocked orthodox history and Egyptology!  Thanks to all who attended.

May 10, 2011 Discussion – “Megalithic Anachronisms – Why History as You Know it is Wrong”

Ancient Engineering, Ancient History, Megalithic Architecture 5 Comments »

We had another great turn out for the May 10, 2011 discussion topic, “Megalithic Anachronisms – Why History as You Know it is Wrong” presented by Jim Patterson.

Jim presented evidence found in ancient megalithic (monolithic stone) architecture that shows ancient man was far more advanced than what we are taught in the history books.

A large number of examples were shared which obviously show that the causal explanations of archaeologists (with no engineering knowledge) fall far short.

  • Constructions containing stones up to 1,000 tons that we’ve only just been able to lift and move within the last 100 years of technology.
  • Stones cut, shaped and finished by the ancients that are so hard we, as modern man, have to use hardened steel and diamond cutting tools to begin to replicate them.
  • Stone joints that are so tight, and stone surfaces that are so flat, they scream “space age precision.”

Thanks to everyone for attending!
