2.4 – UNDERGROUND ALIENS (11.18.10)

DERINKUYU [5b]

Bordered on the North by the Black Sea, and by the Taurus Mountains to the South, lies Cappadocia in Central Turkey. Here, wind and water have sculpted strange shapes out of the soft volcanic rock – rock which ancient peoples once turned into small, primitive dwellings. In more recent years, the site has seen the construction of more modern structures. But in 1963, a simple home renovation in the town of Derinkuyu led to an extraordinary discovery when a cave wall was opened, revealing a passageway to an underground city thousands of years old and more than 280 feet deep.

“I’ve been there on multiple occasions, and it’s incredible because there’s 13 stories that go deep into the ground, with ventilation shafts and 15,000 little shafts that bring air to even the deepest of levels.”

Incredibly, the number of rock rooms that were found could hold over 20,000 men, women and children. There was even evidence of religious centers, storerooms, winepresses and stables for livestock.

“Derinkuyu would’ve been a massive undertaking for anyone, even in modern times with modern equipment. But in those days, it would’ve been stupendous. Equal to the pyramids. At Derinkuyu, because of the softness of the stone, you had to be very careful that you provided enough pillar strength to support the floors above, otherwise you’d have catastrophic cave-ins. Surprisingly, there’s no evidence of any catastrophic cave-ins, so they were apparently extremely clever and knew their material. We’re talking deep antiquity. It is mind boggling to understand how they could’ve done this. Perhaps they had help from some other civilization.”

But just who built this massive underground city? And what mysterious force drove them to live underground?

“Why would people want to live deep underground in these weird caverns like that?  It seems kind of scary, really.”

David Childress (Author, Technology of the Gods)

According to many archaeologists and scholars, Derinkuyu was most likely intended to serve as a temporary shelter from invasion  – built around 800 BC by the Phrygians, a bronze age people related to the Trojans. Others believe it was built by the Hittites, a warrior people mentioned in the Bible who flourished hundreds of years earlier. But could the underground city be even older? According to Ancient Astronaut Theorists, it is, perhaps by many thousands of years.

“The Cappadocia region of Turkey was part of the Zoroastrian Empire, which was Persian in nature. And it’s one of the oldest religious traditions on the face of the Earth.”

David Wilcock (Author/Filmmaker),
(Author, The Source Field Investigations),
(The Synchronicity Key)

The Zoroastrian religion – an ancient faith based on opposing forces of good and evil – is widely believed to have influenced both Hinduism and Judea Christianity. Founded sometime before the 6th-century BC, its chief God is the creator, Ahura Mazda. And in the second chapter of the Zoroastrian sacred text, the Vendidad, Ahura Mazda saves mankind from a worldwide environmental disaster much like the story of Noah in the Hebrew Testament.

“The great prophet Yima, he was instructed to build a kind of underground refuge similar to Derinkuyu by the Sky God, Ahura Mazda.”

– Giorgio A. Tsoukalos
(Publisher, Legendary Times Magazine)

According to the sacred texts, Yima built a multilevel underground city to protect a select group of people and animals, not from a flood but from a global Ice Age. The Vendidad calls this “the evil winters.” According to many mainstream climatologists, the last Ice Age peaked around 18,000 years ago and ended around 10,000 BC. Is it possible that Derinkuyu was built as a refuge from a devastating global winter?

“Since you cannot carbon date stone, it’s anybody’s guess how old Derinkuyu really is. And my question is: If we have a Zoroastrian story that’s very similar, could it be that both that place and Derinkuyu are much, much older than what we’ve believed so far?”

– Giorgio A. Tsoukalos
(Publisher, Legendary Times Magazine)

But if Derinkuyu is in fact the underground city that Ahura Mazda told his followers to build, could there be a stunning truth behind the legend? If so, who or what was the god Ahura Mazda?

“Ahura Mazda does appear to be responsible for the management of whatever is happening here on Earth. There are various ways to read this, one of which is that it does represent some sort of higher universal form of consciousness. But another is that it would represent an overseeing extraterrestrial intelligence.”

David Wilcock (Author/Filmmaker),
(Author, The Source Field Investigations),
(The Synchronicity Key)

“Several sacred texts from antiquity speak of knowledge given to mankind from extraterrestrials, but also known as gods from antiquity.”

– Jason Martell
(Founder, AncientSchool),
(Author, Knowledge Apocalypse)

Could the sky God Ahura Mazda really have been an advanced being from another world? If so, did he provide the technology needed for his followers to build this complex labyrinth as protection from environmental disaster? Or is there possibly a more ominous reason for Derinkuyu’s existence? Some say a clue lies in the underground city’s unusual security system: 1,000-pound doors on rollers that allow them to be moved by a single person, but only from one side.

“The Derinkuyu doors they’re very cleverly constructed. You can basically only open it and leverage it from the inside.”

John Brandenburg, Ph.D.
(Plasma Physicist, Orbital Technologies),
(Author, Life and Death on Mars)

“So obviously, whoever inhabited Derinkuyu was hiding from someone or something.”

– Giorgio A. Tsoukalos
(Publisher, Legendary Times Magazine)

According to the ancient Zoroastrian texts, Ahura Mazda soared through the sky in a divine chariot and waged war against his eternal enemy, Angra Mainyu, the Demon of Destruction. But could this really be, as many Ancient Astronaut Theorists believe, a depiction of two extraterrestrial forces battling over control of the Earth and its resources?

“The aerial enemies were extraterrestrials, because they were the ones who had the capability of flight. They had access to those types of machines that we can read about in every single ancient culture around the world.”

– Giorgio A. Tsoukalos
(Publisher, Legendary Times Magazine)

“When you look at the Zoroastrian tradition, you also see clear evidence that there was some sort of extraterrestrial battle going on between warring factions. Therefore, it is certainly possible that the original caves may have been used as shelters against possible aerial bombardment from extraterrestrials that were warring with each other during that time.”

David Wilcock (Author/Filmmaker),
(Author, The Source Field Investigations),
(The Synchronicity Key)

“Derinkuyu was built out of fear of an aerial enemy, because if something flies over you very, very fast, you can’t see the ventilation shafts. Some suggest 30,000 people used to live underground at Derinkuyu.”

– Giorgio A. Tsoukalos
(Publisher, Legendary Times Magazine)

During recorded history, many different peoples did in fact hide in the underground city of Derinkuyu to escape everything from desert raiders to Roman legions. But some experts wonder whether such conventional attacks can really explain why Derinkuyu was built in the first place.

“If it were an enemy that was on horseback, it would be easy for them to just smother everyone inside by just closing all the ventilation shafts.”

– Giorgio A. Tsoukalos
(Publisher, Legendary Times Magazine)

“We had the phrase in the defense department studies that I participated in: ‘The cave is a grave to a well-prepared adversary.’ Once you find it, it is highly vulnerable.”

John Brandenburg, Ph.D.
(Plasma Physicist, Orbital Technologies),
(Author, Life and Death on Mars)

But did the people of Derinkuyu really go underground to avoid becoming casualties in an extraterrestrial battle in the skies? And, if so, might there be other such cities from the distant past? According to Ancient Astronaut Theorists, there are. And they can be found much nearer to home deep in the caves of the American Southwest.
