4.4 – ALIENS & MEGA-DISASTERS (3.2.12)

TSUNAMI [5b]

Japan. Friday, March 11, 2011. 43 miles off the northeast coast, a massive 8.9 magnitude earthquake produces an explosive upheaval of the seafloor. 200 miles away, in Tokyo, buildings shake violently. Within half an hour of the earthquake, a powerful 30-foot tsunami strikes the northern coast of Japan…and sweeps across the landscape, reaching six miles inland, destroying everything in its path. Local officials estimate that over 19,000 lives were lost in the rapidly rising tide.

“Tsunamis are basically the name for a giant sea wave that’s fairly coherent, has a lot of energy and will travel over a large distance. And it’s really a matter of scale more than anything else. It’s huge enough to cause huge amounts of damage when it hits the shore. These have to be generated by a large pulse of energy being put into the ocean. And the most common source of that is a massive earthquake under the ocean floor.”

Michael Dennin, Ph.D.
(Physicist/Prof. of Physics & Astronomy, UC Irvine)

“They’re used to earthquakes in this part of the world, but the fact that they had such little time, they just couldn’t get away from it. So, you can be a very sophisticated, first-world, developed country, you can be a superpower, and still have these kind of mega-disasters come your way.”

Frank Billingsley (Meteorologist)

According to Japan’s Kyodo News Agency, in the days following the devastation, thousands of UFO’s were sighted over Japan. If true, what might this mean?

“It’s interesting to note that when the tsunami occurred, there was suddenly an increase of UFO sightings in that area of Japan. So, you have to think, well, are the extraterrestrials particularly interested in what happens to us in certain catastrophes and life-changing events that are occurring on this planet? And it’s possible the extraterrestrials themselves are influencing some of these events.”

David Childress (Author, Technology of the Gods)

But is it really possible, as Ancient Astronaut Theorists believe, that otherworldly forces could provoke such deadly disasters? Crete. Located in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea, it is the largest of the Greek Islands. Here, in 365 AD, this once- quiet province of the Byzantine Empire was destroyed by a devastating underwater earthquake and subsequent tsunami.  According to Roman historians, the tsunami also hit Alexandria, Egypt, and other cities along the Mediterranean coast, causing great destruction.

“The Crete earthquake of 365 was one of the great natural disasters of the Mediterranean world. So, this was an earthquake that was probably an eight on the Richter scale. So, it was very large. It produced a tsunami, and it raised the isle of Crete by nine meters. So, it was an extraordinary event.”

– Mark A. Wilson, Ph.D.
(Prof. of Natural Sciences, College of Wooster)

The ancient Greeks attributed earthquakes to the god of the sea, Poseidon. According to Greek myths, Poseidon was known as the “Earth Shaker” because of his power to provoke earthquakes, sea storms and tidal waves.

“Ancient peoples would have ascribed natural disasters to the gods as a really logical answer, because at first these events are deadly, so their lives depend upon trying to appease or please gods who control those things.”

– Mark A. Wilson, Ph.D.
(Prof. of Natural Sciences, College of Wooster)

“Crete was said to be the home of the gods. There are caves today in Crete which we can visit which are identified as being the place where Zeus was raised from a baby to an infant. And so when you find that something is happening in Crete in early Christian times, you really have to ask whether this is somehow going to change the future of mankind.”

– Philip Coppens
(Author, The Ancient Alien Question),
(The Lost Civilization Enigma)

“This may be the wrath of Poseidon, because what was happening at that time was the early Christians were struggling against a resurgence of Paganism and that tsunami came to destroy, finally, all the Pagan religion in the area. And so, modern Christianity became dominant.”

David Childress (Author, Technology of the Gods)

But was the god Poseidon merely a figure of myth and legend? Or might this supernatural being have had a more otherworldly origin, as Ancient Astronaut Theorists believe.

“Poseidon was always depicted as holding this weapon or instrument, his trident. And this trident could cause earthquakes and tsunamis. He could control the oceans with his trident. You have to wonder if this trident wasn’t some high-tech, extraterrestrial device.”

David Childress (Author, Technology of the Gods)

“The weapons used by these Greek gods can be compared in some ways to modern weaponry. It’s interesting that the United States Navy developed nuclear missiles for its submarines with the names ‘Poseidon’ and ‘Trident.’”

Michael Cremo (Author, Forbidden Archaeology)

“Perhaps this was Poseidon carrying out some sort of wrath on ancient Crete for finally rejecting him as a god.”

David Childress (Author, Technology of the Gods)

Is it really possible that mega-disasters caused by earthquakes and tsunamis could be triggered by alien technology, as some Ancient Astronaut Theorists believe? And if so, might such catastrophic events have been provoked to change the course of human history? Perhaps further evidence can be found in modern military technology designed to use the weather as a weapon of mass destruction.
