RESEARCHERS TURN UP NEW ANTARCTIC PUZZLES
The mystery of what lies beneath the ice of Antarctica has, for years, been one of the most frequent themes of "Atlantis Rising Magazine." As recently as 2013, our November/December cover story "Lake Vostok's Secret Life" (AR #102) focused on newly discovered evidence for microbial life taken from ice cores above the massive sub-glacial lake. Some have argued that Vostok might still exist as a freshwater body, perhaps beneath a virtual atmospheric dome of some kind, preserved by geological heat from below. Now a new study in "The Journal of Geophysical Research" from geologists at Washington University in Saint Louis is providing seismological evidence for previously unknown geothermal heat sources beneath the ice sheet. more...

THE QUEST FOR IMMORTALITY: ILLUSION OR REALITY?
By Jerry Decker
I've always been interested in the many legends about people claiming to be immortal but who have had the sense to keep it to themselves. So, since I prefer 'Pampers' to 'Depends,' I've been studying rejuvenation. more...
THE FORBIDDEN ARCHAEOLOGIST
THE UNEXPLAINED HUMAN FOSSILS OF SAVONA, ITALY
By Michael Cremo
Savona is a coastal town on the Italian Riviera, 25 miles west of Genoa. In 1852, some nuns, the Sisters of Mercy (Figlie di Misericordia), wanted to build a church next to their convent in the center of town. When the foundation for the church was being dug, Antonio Brilla, a local artist, assisted in the excavation and was also careful to look for fossils. more...
SECRETS OF THE CAROLINA BAYS
The Untold Story of the Younger Dryas
By RALPH ELLIS
There is an enduring mystery from prehistoric North America, involving geology, astronomy, climatology and zoology. Unraveling it could tell us a great deal about our world, its history, its climate, its vulnerability, and possibly even our future. more...
DID THE RUSSIANS FIND ATLANTIS?
It Could Be Time for a Fresh Look at Forgotten Reports
By FRANK JOSEPH
Thirty-eight years ago, steel leviathans silently, invisibly stalked each other in the dark, lightless depths of the North Atlantic with nuclear-warhead torpedoes. More than once, their near-miss encounters almost made of the Cold War a hot one, and unofficial accusations of submarines on both sides deliberately sunk with all hands, are still around, nearly four decades later. Into this fearsome arena and time, stealthily cruised the Moskovsky Universitet, ostensibly a research ship, as her scholarly name was meant to suggest. more...
JUNK DNA OR NOT?
Could the Genetic Material the 'Experts' Rejected Have a Purpose, After All?
By BRENDAN MURPHY
The vast majority of our DNA "text" is not used in the coding of proteins and enzymes--it is noncoding--and scientists generally have no idea of what its purpose might be. Thus, in their in?nite wisdom, they initially dubbed it 'junk DNA.' How much of our DNA is junk? About 95-98 percent--rather a lot of waste for Nature to hang onto, I think you will agree (some scientific estimates go as high as 99%). Since it is not responsible for constructing our basic physical form, its purpose has remained mysterious to conventional mindsets, until very recently. We now know that a large portion of that 'junk' DNA is made up of mobile genetic elements (transposons and retrotransposons) or 'jumping DNA,' which can rewrite and activate--or deactivate--certain genetic codes. Jumping DNA reportedly makes up as much as half of the total DNA nucleotides. more...
THE OTHER SIDE
Shroud of Turin
The Mysteries Grow Deeper
By PATRICK MARSOLEK
The Shroud of Turin is a controversial and enigmatic Christian artifact that may be the only physical object remaining from Jesus' life. The Shroud was on display in the cathedral in Turin, Italy in 2015 for the first time in five years. At its last showing in 2010, more than two million people personally viewed it, and images were broadcast worldwide. According to Christians, this fourteen-foot-long, linen shroud is direct evidence of a central tenant of Christianity, the resurrection. Photos of the image on the Shroud--a bearded man lying in repose complete with wounds and bloodstains--was first shown to the masses in 1898. more...
Shroud of Turin
Big-Power Politics Then & Now
By STEVEN SORA
The Shroud and its dating has presented the Roman Catholic Church with many problems, political and otherwise. Problems with dating the burial cloth of Jesus may be one reason the Church rarely speaks of it in public, and then does so only in ambiguous terms, but it is not the only one. more...
THE INTOLERANT CHURCH OF SCIENTISM
How Well Has It Earned the Adulation It Asks of Us?
ByWILLIAM B. STOECKER
In the 1950s the media never tired of telling us all about the wonderful world of the future. In 1955 there were television specials about what life would be like in 1965, 1975, and beyond. There would be teardrop-shaped, gas turbine cars, electric monorails, gleaming cities with futuristic architecture, atomic power so cheap that it would not even be metered, an end to all diseases, including aging, huge space stations with spin-induced gravitation, bases on the Moon, manned flights to Mars, and so on. As late as the first manned Moon landing in 1969, many scientists and engineers confidently predicted that we would send people to Mars in the 1980s. more...
THE POWERS OF MEDITATION
Just How Far Can Your Mind Take You?
By JOHN WHITE
Life on Planet Earth is threatened from many directions; many responsible sources warn of this. There is the possibility of nuclear, chemical, and biological warfare by the superpowers. There is worldwide pollution of the air, land, and sea by all nations. Nonrenewable resources--topsoil, water, various minerals, tropical rain forest, and the ozone layer, for example--are being wasted or destroyed. Overpopulation is straining the biosphere, bringing drought and pestilence. more...
HIDDEN CHAMBERS IN EGYPT
The Curious Revelations of New Hi-Tech Surveys
By ROBERT M. SCHOCH, Ph.D.
During the last few months of 2015 Egypt made international headlines, but not always in a positive way. Indeed, the stories ranged from the tragic to the archaeologically titillating... more...
MAGICAL EGYPT 2
VIDEO PRODUCTION LEADS TO STARTLING DISCOVERIES Ancient Art Reveals Surprising Secrets
By CHANCE GARDNER
Ancient Egypt is like a magic book--it speaks to you in your native tongue. To the stoneworker, Egypt speaks in the massive size of the stones and structures; to an engineer, it speaks through the mathematical precision and the perfect alignments; to the astronomer, it speaks in a precise language of celestial mechanics. To artists, it speaks in aesthetics. Through its art and architecture, it demonstrates the same inexplicable genius that it does in its other cultural expressions. more...
THE LOST ARTS OF LEVITATION
Can Overcoming Gravity Be Simpler than We Thought?
By STEVE RICHARDS
The fact that science cannot explain gravitation means that science cannot condemn levitation. So there is nothing unscientific about the occultist's claim that man can rise into the air through 'mere intention.' And that changes the character of our original question. It is no longer can man fly? but does man fly? And the evidence is that he probably does. Occasionally. more...
TREK TO THE PLANET VULCAN
Could Dark Matter or Dark Energy play a part in explaining a mysterious hidden planet spoken of in esoteric lore?
By Julie Loar
For a time, Vulcan was a small planet, or large asteroid, proposed to exist between Mercury and the Sun. Its astrological significance is still part of esoteric astrology, having a deep and hidden relationship to the sign of Taurus, the Bull. Attempting to explain peculiarities in Mercury's orbit, nineteenth century French mathematician Urbain Le Verrier hypothesized that these anomalies were the result of another planet, which he named Vulcan after the Roman god of fire. more...
