THE MEGALITHIC GRID
Graham Hancock, author of "Fingerprints of The Gods,"
has gathered documentation for a very simple, but very
Massive stone structures, built out of stone blocks
generally larger than any used in modern construction,
are arranged around the world on a grid structure which
is 36 degrees of longitude apart, making ten equal-spaced
Hancock has shown that nearly all of these structures
are either entirely "pre-historic" (ie before 3500 bce),
or are built on a base or in the vicinity of remnants of
a pre-historic culture of unknown origin.
Moreover, there are indications that the culture that
produced these megalithic temples, cities and other giant
constructions may have existed over 10,000 years ago, or
in a 'pre-Deluge' era, a time Hancock equates with the age
of the lost civilization of Atlantis described by Plato as
having sunk in a cosmic flood event some 11,600 years ago.
Hancock has recently added to this list of megalithic
sites a huge underwater complex off the coast of Okinawa,
south of Japan. The last time this structure was elevated
above sea level was over 11,000 years ago. The huge steps
and terraces of this stone 'city' imply that it was built
by a race of giants. And it sits on the grid.
Graham Hancock, of course, has come rather late to this
game. Many others have written about megaliths and grids
for over a century. Hancock is a reporter who is creating
a "legitimacy" around this subject, covering it in the way
the media likes stories covered, with lots of pictures and
juicy sound-bites of credible observations that stay just a
bit shy of outright sensationalism.
And so, for the first time, serious scientists are going
to these sites and pondering the possibility that mankind's
level of sophistication during the last ice age, which they
believe ended 11,000 or so years ago, may have been rather
higher than the crude barbarism credited to our ancestors
by 19th-century paleontologists and accepted as dogma ever
since by all subsequent scientists and scholars.
It now appears that not only did "ice age man" possess a
technology of construction that enabled him to build truly
spectacular megalithic edifices, but could travel globally
and align them with respect to one another and the overall
dimensions of the earth, perhaps using celestial navigation
skills. This implies the existence of a single global and
linguistic culture with an advanced scientific understanding
not believed to have existed until modern times.
There are so many contradictions with modern assumptions
in such a theory that it is violently resisted by custodians
of history and science.
Perhaps the biggest hurdle is the implication that there
must have been a GLOBAL CATACLYSM (or several) in order to
explain how mankind could have "forgotten" all of the things
the ancient megalith-builders seem to have known. Scholars
have been unwilling to accept the idea that any knowledge of
the earth's size or any global civilization existed at such
an early epoch.
With the new find off Okinawa, however, there seems to be
no more room for doubt on the matter. The real question now
is: WHY did the ancients build this grid of megaliths?
TAPPING EARTH'S INNER ENERGY
One of the most consistent explanations for the grid is
that it somehow provided energy for ancient civilizations.
The idea is that the earth's electro-magnetic field could be
"tapped" by the alignment of huge stones along geo-magnetic
The trouble with this idea is that the field lines appear
to be available anywhere on the earth, not just on the grid,
and magnetic flux varies in significant ways in local areas,
often pointing well away from true north and the grid lines.
So there is some question about exactly what the ancients
may have used the grid for. It does appear the grid had an
alignment with the earth's axis of rotation and that it thus
may have had a link to the earth's magnetic field or another
energy field of unknown type. But how it worked is still a
BLOOD ON THE GRID
One thing that does seem clear is that dead bodies and
other indications of human sacrifice are found around these
megalithic sites. The oldest myths and legends associated
with them appear to confirm that people were thought to have
been sacrificed in connection with these structures. Bodies
of children, roughly 8-12 years old have been found, as well
as adolescents and adults. Virgin sacrifice generally meant
killing a child around 12 years old. In Peru, near Cuzco,
high in the Incan mountains, a boy of 10-12 years of age was
found dressed for sacrifice, lying in a cave, where he had
been left to die by the priests when something put a halt to
their "civilization" and its rituals.
Some 4000 skeletons are estimated to lie under Stonehenge
after partial excavations at the site. The building of the
stone circle is currently thought to have ceased prior to
the time of the Exodus, some 3500 years ago. It appears to
have been built in stages over several thousand years. It's
only one of a number of stone circles and megaliths all over
the British Isles, France and Spain, and on islands in the
Mediterranean Sea and out into the nearby Atlantic. This is
the area "beyond the Pillars of Hercules" (supposedly beyond
the Straits of Gibralter between Spain and North Africa that
separate the Mediterranean Sea from the Atlantic Ocean) that
Plato said was the location of the lost civilization of the
island of Atlantis, from which the Atlantic Ocean may have
derived its name.
All this raises a question: Was human sacrifice carried
out all over the world on these ancient megalithic sites?
We cannot yet answer that question. Nevertheless, we do
know one thing:
The widely-separated megalithic complexes on grid lines
were situated in often very inconvenient places, out in the
middle of the ocean, high atop mountains, in deserts, and it
appears, in the case of Atlantis itself, on artificial, man-
made islands where no suitable island fell on the gridlines.
The strange locations of these complexes implies that the
purpose of the megaliths was not to derive power from a grid
for local use, but rather, to do something to the earth grid
by coordinating local actions on a global basis. In other
words, the megaliths appear to be used to put energy into a
global grid, rather than to extract energy from it.
This would explain why we cannot find any use for a grid-
produced energy in many of the megalithic sites. In some of
the complexes, the only activity appears "religious" or, at
Could blood sacrifice have been performed on the stones
in some strange expectation that it might empower the grid?
One of the most common experiences people report around
these stone structures is spiritual manifestation. It is
sometimes nothing but a strong feeling. Other times beings
are seen or speak to the witnesses. Strange glowing lights
or eerie sounds are noted. Dowsers claim they can detect
the presence of mysterious forces around some of the sites.
The Great Pyramid is legendary for its bizzare occurrances.
Even the "natural" monolith of Petra--a single giant stone
in Jordan--had apparent human sacrifice on top and is known
by the Bedouins as "the place of the Ghoul" and is haunted
by a strange presence on its summit.
One of the creepy things about the human sacrifices that
were conducted at some of these sites, at least in the more
recent period, is that the victims were conscious when they
had their hearts cut out of their chest atop stone pyramids
and other megalithic altars. These people may have taken a
psychedelic drug just before they were killed. While it is
likely to have made them more pliable so that they might be
able to endure the grisly ritual while semi-conscious, the
psychedelic effects could also have increased the vividness
of their final experience.
It is common knowledge that houses are often haunted if
there has been a violent or traumatic death in them. There
seems to be a relationship between the intensity of victim
trauma and the intensity of the haunting.
In other words, the psychic energy or spiritual power of
the haunting is apparently proportionate to the number and
severity of the traumatic deaths at the site.
Not only are houses and mountains haunted, but battle-
fields where thousands died are so haunted that the battle
is sometimes "replayed" for centuries thereafter, a whole
army of "spirits" haunting the site for generations.
It follows that sacrificial pyramids and other megaliths
should still be haunted by the ghosts of their past victims
--and that is precisely what the witnesses report.
It also follows that because the megaliths were drenched
in the blood of thousands of innocent victims--at least one
a year for thousands of years--there would have been a huge
build-up of psychic energy in the stones.
In short, back when the sacrifices were underway around
the world, the megaliths would have been super-charged with
spiritual power. And that could have caused the whole grid
to become haunted...that is, the whole earth.
It surely must have been apparent to the megalith people
that their sacrifices were energizing their temples with a
massive amount of psychic power. And since they had sited
these structures on a global grid, it seems unavoidable to
conclude that they did so deliberately in order to infuse
the grid with this spiritual energy.
Therefore, the ancient megalithic grid-builders appear
to have set out to haunt the earth with the spirits of the
children and others they sacrificed. They must have sought
to energize their stone grid with the mass-murder of their
own children. What could have prompted such slaughter?
The victims, we are told by the more modern sacrificers,
considered it an honor to give their lives. The blood was
poured out on the stones, it was drunk by the priests, and
it was removed from the bodies along with the vital organs.
The hearts would be eaten too. And all this was done for
the "benefit" of the so-called "gods" they worshipped.
Who were these "gods" in the pre-Deluge world? If one
looks at the Greek myths, the pre-flood world was the time
when the "gods" came down and intermarried with men. The
Sumerians said the same thing. Even the Bible asserts that
the "Nephilim" or "fallen ones" came to earth and interbred
with human women, producing a race of giants or "mighty men
of old, the men of renown" [Genesis 6].
While many myths actually mention sacrifices to the gods
before the flood (which nearly all of them take as a given),
the Biblical account merely says that "the earth was filled
with violence through them" and that this had turned into a
GLOBAL problem requiring a GLOBAL solution, namely a Flood.
Genesis twice repeats the curious expression that these
pre-Deluge people had "FILLED" the earth with violence. Is
it possible these passages should be taken literally? That
is, that the planet had literally been "filled" or infused
with the violent psychic trauma of millions of sacrificial
Were the megalith-builders using their stones as a kind
of violent-trauma storage-battery?
That might help explain why the megaliths used all those
giant stones in the first place. The big stones could be a
way of concentrating the traumatic haunting energy; and the
great effort to minimize the joints to less than the width
of the EDGE of a razor-blade, and to fill even that slender
sliver with a super-fine mortar, could be a way to glue the
huge stones into one gigantic monolith, a megamass of stone
that might be able to store fabulous quantities of trauma--
the kind of horrendous haunting energy needed to empower a
global grid system.
And if they were charging the earth with violence, how
did this serve the "gods" purposes? Did the "fallen ones"
or "anunaki," as the Sumerians called them, design the grid
and the megaliths? For what reason?
HELPING THE "GODS" ESCAPE THE FLOOD
The legends relate that the giants or Titans helped to
build the megaliths and then found themsleves left behind
when the "gods" fled the earth before the Flood hit. They
rebelled as they realized their fate. A war broke out. It
became a battle to see who would be able to escape and the
giants lost. Their "parents"--the Nephilim or "gods" of
the myths--defeated the Titans and managed to flee before
the Deluge. The giants were swept into the sea and died,
but some traditions say one clung to Noah's ark and stayed
alive because Noah fed him. After the Flood, the Nephilim
returned and tried to re-establish their rule over earth.
What happened then is most illuminating. The legends
say they built the Tower of Babel--another megalith built
in the same area the anunaki had once dwelt. The effort
to reinstate the old ways came to a disastrous end, but it
is the reason why the Tower was destroyed that may explain
what the megaliths before the Deluge were used for.
The Biblical account says they were building the Tower
in order to get into Heaven, and that if they had not been
halted, nothing that they imagined to do would be too hard
for them [Genesis 11]. And this had something to do with
a GLOBAL language and a GLOBAL project [verses 4-9].
The elements of this post-Deluge story are remarkably
similar to the pre-Deluge situation: The Nephilim are in
charge of a global project that involves building a great
megalithic structure with the potential of accomplishing
anything they "imagined to do" [verse 6]. And one thing
we know they "imagined to do" was get into Heaven.
It certainly seems clear enough: The megaliths had the
power to reach into Heaven somehow. The stepped pyramid
of the Tower of Babel was not terribly high, and it could
be ascended by a flight of steps. Similar structures over
in Central America were used for human sacrifice. We may
wonder if the Nephilim intended to revive human sacrifice
in order to power up the Tower as a transport device.
The Bible lets us know a few pages later that there is
another place on the earth, over near Jerusalem, where the
idea of earth-to-heaven transport was still in some sense
surviving in Jacob's day. Jacob lies down atop a mountain
and dreams of "angels [the Nephilim were "fallen angels"]
ascending and descending" to and from Heaven [Genesis 28].
"Surely this is THE GATE OF HEAVEN," Jacob exclaims.
Something about a MOUNTAIN TOP involves the ability of
"angels" to "ascend" into Heaven. What else can we see in
Jacob's story that might relate to the megaliths?
Jacob sets up a "bed" out of the "stones" of that place
and then "stands" one of them on its end and makes a stone
pillar out of it. It looks like the stones of that place
were BUILDING STONES. At least one of them had a shape of
an artificially cut stone. Tradition says that the stone
in the British coronation throne is that very stone, and
that stone is clearly man-shaped.
There is a growing school of thought that identifies
the mountain of Jacob's "ladder" [steps?] as the Mount of
Olives in Jerusalem. [We will detail the reasoning behind
this another time.] In 1982, Israeli archaeologists found
a massive hewn-stone block atop the Mount of Olives. They
believe this ancient stone was the Miphkad Altar where the
Red Heifer sacrifice was conducted and where Abraham was
to have sacrificed Isaac.
If the Miphkad megalith is near the spot where Jacob's
"Gate of Heaven" was located, could there have been other
stones on Olivet when Jacob was there, but which are not
Across the Kidron Valley from Olivet are the walls of
Jerusalem--built out of some of the most massive stones
ever set on earth, some even bigger than those of any of
the megaliths we have been discussing. A mystery exists
about how the largest such stones could have been cut out
of a quarry and hoisted up and dragged through the hills
around Jerusalem and set into position with the tools we
NOW have, much less the technology of Solomon's & Herod's
times. One of these stones is 42 FEET LONG: The size of
a railroad boxcar. No one can explain how it got there.
If there had once been a megalithic structure atop the
Mount of Olives in Jerusalem, then that mountain may have
once looked more like some sort of stepped pyramid than a
That is not as fanciful as it may sound. Aside from a
long series of wars that have afflicted Olivet, which has
a higher summit than Jerusalem and is therefore an ideal
place to lay seige to the city, we have a specific story
in the writings of the historian Josephus, an eyewitness,
who relates that the Romans levelled the top of Olivet in
their seige of 70 AD. So Olivet looked much different in
the days of Jesus than it now does, and it probably had a
far different profile when Jacob was there.
But it is clear that even in Jacob's day, Mount Olivet
had already suffered some sort of destruction to all the
stones he found; they were just lying around in some sort
of ruined condition for him to rearrange. What could the
Mount of Olives have endured that would have ruptured the
stone structures there? The Deluge?
If the Deluge had disorganized Olivet, then it would
suggest Olivet had been "built" sometime before the Flood
for some purpose. Jacob felt it was the Gate of Heaven--
a device for travelling into Heaven and back.
It may be relevant that Jesus is said to have ascended
into Heaven from the top of Olivet and is prophesied--or
rather it was announced by angels atop Olivet--to return
from Heaven to Olivet at the end of this age. Abraham is
also said to have encountered an angel atop Olivet. The
angels after the resurrection greeted the women atop the
Mount of Olives. During the agony in the Garden, there
was said to be an angel strengthening Jesus [Lk 22:43].
Elsewhere on this website [see link below], we discuss
the evidence that the Garden of Eden was atop Olivet. If
so, then at least two more angels [Satan and the Cherubim
who guarded the East gate] were seen on Olivet.
So there was a continual series of angelic vistors on
the top of Olivet. This alone would make it a candidate
for Jacob's Gate of Heaven. It appears more "good" angel
visitations occurred at Olivet than anywhere else in the
Was the "Garden" of Eden really a stepped pyramid type
of structure, complete with a stairway that could only be
ascended from one side?
Genesis says that an angel was placed at the east gate
of the Garden to prevent Adam and Eve from returning, but
why couldn't they simply sneak in the back way? If is is
just a mountain, and Ezekiel 28 identifies it as being on
a mountain, then why is there only one way in and out?
Obviously, the sides of this Garden were too steep for
Adam and Eve to climb in, but there was a ladder or steps
on the east side which allowed entrance. So this was the
only way in or out and, hence, the only place the angel
needed to guard.
Therefore, it seems the Garden of Eden did indeed look
very much like a stepped pyramid, with groves of trees on
each level and a stairway on the east side. And this was
also the Gate of Heaven with a stairway or ladder up into
Heaven that angels could go up and down upon.
The Bible seems to make a distinction between angels
who intermarry with mankind and build sacrificial towers
to storm Heaven with, and the obedient good angels whose
transport location is Mount Olivet. Jesus tells a story
about a "sheepfold" and "thieves" who attempt to sneak in
by "another way" than the front gate. The parable might
be a reference to the Nephilim attempting to get back to
Heaven by creating some kind of alternative technological
device outside Eden that would use inter-dimensional and
spiritual powers to transport them from the earth.
But where did they go?
During the Deluge, as the legends and the Bible also
imply, the Nephilim did manage to get off-earth. Those
megalithic sacrifices did energize the grid sufficiently
to allow a few of them to escape somewhere. Then they
returned. Why come back to a devasted earth if they had
achieved their true goal of reaching Heaven itself? Why
come back to a place covered in mud, with few survivors,
most of whom were hostile to them?
Could the place of "escape" have been less ideal than
even the devasted earth?
PYRAMIDS IN THE GROVE OF ARES
The Greeks tell a strange story about a quest for the
Golden Fleece. Jason and the Argonauts sail off to the
"Grove of Ares" guarded by a dragon in a place he calls
"Colchis" where a life-giving spring is found. Jason is
accompanied by Hercules on this journey.
At first the story sounds suspiciously like the story
of the Garden of Eden. The grove of fruit trees guarded
by a dragon who is also an angel, the spring of living
waters, even the name "Colchis" that is reminiscent of
the name "Golgotha" at Olivet: All seem to echo elements
of the Garden of Eden's traditions.
In fact, there is also a Golden Vestment similar to
the Golden Fleece associated with the Garden of Eden. In
Ezekiel 28, the fallen cherubim [Satan] of the Garden is
said to have once had a Golden Vestment or "covering" to
wear, and which he had possessed prior to his fall from
grace. This Golden Vest or Mantle is lost, possibly at
the time he is cursed in the Garden, but possibly at an
earlier time; the text does not say.
One is almost tempted to assume that Colchis is Eden,
but there are a couple of problems. First, the Garden
is called "The Grove of Ares." The literal meaning of
that phrase is "The Fruit-Tree Garden of Mars." Hardly
what we expect. The Greek tale is apparently saying in
a rather direct way that this Garden in Colchis had been
planted by Mars...or was on Mars.
The second problem is that the guide to Jason is the
mighty giant Hercules. In Phoenicia, where some Greeks
had their stories they said, Hercules was known by the
name "Melkart" or "M'L'K-AR'T"--which means "Angel of
Ares [Mars]." So Jason's GUIDE on his quest for that
Garden of Mars was the Angel of Mars.
Also, keep in mind that if the "Dragon" was guarding
the Garden of Mars, then it could not be Eden, since the
Dragon of Eden, Satan, was banished from the Garden and
would certainly not be appointed to guard it.
One might be asking if the Greeks had gotten confused
and jumbled up the story? Did they simply not know what
had happened and were all mixed up about the details?
It is unlikely that the Greeks got this story from a
Biblical source. Not only are the details very strange
in a Biblical sense, but the Martian references at first
seem totally alien to the Bible.
But that's not true. The very passage in Ezekiel we
have been citing calls Satan "the King of Tyre"--a city
in Phoenicia, which worshipped Mars. Moreover, "Tyre"
itself was a name for Mars. Thus, the cherub of Ezekiel
28, the "Dragon" called Satan, is "the King of Mars."
Now suddenly we see two independent traditions--the
Greek myths and the Bible--confirming one another. Yet
the confirmation is unsettling. Was the Garden of Eden
Or, to put it more correctly, was there another Eden
on Mars? A second stepped pyramid used for inter-planet
transport? Was the Garden of Eden on the earth only one
end of a two-way inter-dimensional transportation gate-
way or portal that allowed beings--angels--to move back-
And did Satan violate the rules of his official duty
in some way at Eden?
There is an ancient Jewish legend that says Eve was
"seduced" by an angel named "Samael" who fathered Cain
and an identical twin sister by her at the same time she
had Abel and his sister by Adam: Two sets of twins by
two fathers at the same time.
The legends say this angel "Samael" had previously
been the angel of the planet Mars. He was later called
Satan, the one who accuses or sits in judgment, from the
idea that having fallen into sin, he spends his time in
an effort to point out the sins of others so that his
own sins will seem less serious by comparison.
Here we begin to see the dim outlines of what appears
to have happened:
The angel of Mars, Samael, came to earth by the Gate
of Heaven atop Eden-Olivet, where he saw Eve and seduced
her. Adam mated with her shortly thereafter, producing
a dual pregnancy; she is "cursed" by having both sorrow
and her "conception...greatly multiplied": She has two
sets of twins at once, one pair of whom are very likely
giants [Cain and his sister, who is called "L'L-H'W'H":
"Lil-Woman"--a variation of "Lil-ette" or "Lilith"]. If
Cain and Lilith are giant offspring of an angel, it goes
a long way toward explaining his behavior and the tales
about Lilith seeing herself as "preceding" Eve and being
of a "higher" or "angleic" status.
Having left his former station on Mars, Samael lost
his Golden Mantle, which may have been returned to Mars
by the Gateway. Now trapped on the earth, he began to
make plans to go to Mars and retrieve his Golden Mantle.
The legend of the quest for the Fleece shows Hercules as
the Angel of Mars attempting to return to the Garden on
Mars, the other end of the Gateway, in order to regain
the lost Golden Mantle.
In order to do this, having been banished from Olivet
in Eden, Samael must convince Cain and his descendents
to build a new transport system. It was comparatively
crude, erected with slave labor supplied by a race of
giants bred for the purpose, but it worked.
As the project reached Mars, they detected the signs
of a coming Deluge--one of a series of solar upheavals
that periodically swept the earth. The chief transport
up to Mars was Atlantis ["Between the Two Lands"] which
was accessed by passing between the Pillars of Hercules
--that is, by passing through the Gateway of the Angel
of Mars: Hercules/Melkart/Malek Ares/Samael/Satan.
Global deception led people to believe that if they
sacrificed their children on the megaliths, they could
escape the coming Deluge. The Titans thought they too
would be saved. Everybody expected to be among those
who went to Atlantis and took the Gateway to Mars.
But there was never enough psychic energy in their
megalithic grid to save everybody, nor was there time
enough to transport everyone, even those at Atlantis
when the end came. The concentric circles of Atlantis
indicate that it was an artificial island placed in an
especially ideal spot in the ocean where the grid had
the ability to beam the elite "gods" to Mars.
Earthquakes shook Atlantis, Plato says, giving them
warning of the impending doom. Yet they did not flee.
Why not? Apparently Atlantis was their hope of going
to Mars before the Flood struck. Those caught there
at the end must have believed they would be able to
get transported through the Gateway, but either they
had been lied to like the Titans, or time ran out.
Some of the people did escape. The myths confirm
that the leaders--the "gods"--managed to get to Mars,
but most did not. Once on Mars, the elite constructed
as earth-like a "Paradise" as they could. Cities were
built and these self-made "gods" struggled against the
rigors of the weak Martian atmosphere. Having a much
weaker gravity made construction on Mars easier, but
they still longed to get back to earth when the Flood
event was over.
Bred of angelic stock, these descendents of Cain
and Lilith made plans for the reconquest of the earth.
In their minds they were gods. That is what the myths
record them telling mankind, not surprisingly. What
technologies they developed in the pre-Flood era can
be imagined from ancient accounts of UFO-style craft
and laser-like weapons. There's ample modern evidence
that the remnants of the old grid are being restored
by UFO's today.
One of the puzzles of modern UFO activity has been
the increasingly obvious inter-dimensional nature of
the craft and their occupants, combined with a strange
set of biological characteristics remarkably similar
to our own for a supposedly "alien" race. How could
such beings be so much like us--humanoids with fingers
and toes, two eyes and two ears, elbows and knees? It
reveals a close affinity (closer than monkeys!)--yet
they appear to pass through walls and act more like a
kind of spirit than like aliens.
But if they are in fact descendents of angels and
are using an interdimensional transport system, then
the mysteries make sense.
That raises a more sinister issue, however. If the
aliens are in fact the remnant of Cain's line, and if
they are attempting to restore the global grid, where
are they getting the human sacrificial victims?
Millions of people are supposed to have been taken
on board UFO's for bizarre experiments in which their
body fluids are extracted. Women are inpregnated and
the products look like "hybrids" when young, but may
grow up to be standard "greys" at maturity. They are
using our women as surrogate mothers to breed a host
of fake "aliens" to trick mankind into accepting them
as "saviors" who are here to rescue us.
Other abductees are never returned; the body parts
feed fake aliens--human goo dumped as waste in fields.
Cattle are mutilated. Thousands of children vanish.
The Nephilim are recharging the grid. Why?
