New York Times confirms Mumps now spread mostly by vaccinated children

There have been specific cases for which the vaccination protocol appears to have succeeded.  What has happened though is that the protocol has been applied to a wide range of other biological disease agents as if this one protocol could always succeed.

Worse we are now learning that there is ample reason to suspect much of our so called past success was illusionary or outright fraud.  Plausible claims regarding this have been made not least because some of those events are not supported naturally.

The real success in the past century has been public hygiene.  *It really matters to have clean drinking water.  The past truly lacked just that.  We now have armies able to go anywhere, operate and not be made sick.  That was never true and we still have no vaccine for dysentery.

In the event it essentially turns out that mumps is likely extinct in the wild and we now contract it through vaccination.  Even back in the day the so called vaccine was dangerous and it nearly killed me when i was twelve.  We were injected in the midst of an outbreak no less.  How stupid..

New York Times confirms investigation: Mumps now spread mostly by vaccinated children

Posted on November 7, 2017 by Mike Adams


(Natural News) The New York Times is now confirming that Natural News has been right all along about the real cause of mumps outbreaks in America. In a bombshell article entitled, “Mumps Makes a Comeback, Even Among the Vaccinated,” the NYT admits that vaccinated children are spreading mumps. Via the NYT: (bolding added)

Most of the recent cases occurred in outbreaks, including a large one in Arkansas, rather than as a sporadic here-a-case, there-a-case disease. And most of the outbreaks were among people 18 to 22 years old, most of whom had had the requisite two doses of mumps vaccine in childhood. “We are seeing it in a young and highly vaccinated population,” Dr. Routh said.

New York Times in 2017 confirms what Natural News has been reporting for a decade

Natural News, of course, has repeatedly warned that mumps outbreaks occur predominantly among children who have been vaccinated against mumps, thereby proving that mumps vaccines don’t work. 

This realization is fully aligned with the shocking science discovery publicized last week that solved the riddle of why flu shots don’t work, too.

Earlier this year, Natural News scooped the New York Times, reporting, “Mumps outbreaks reported among vaccinated children … Is the vaccine causing the outbreaks?

Even before that, Natural News has been trailblazing truth-based journalism on the topic of vaccines with all the following stories that further support what the New York Times has only now discovered… that mumps vaccines don’t work. Some of the stories we’ve published over the last decade include:

Once again, the news you read on Natural News five or ten years ago is now today’s news in the New York Times. (If you want to stay 5 – 10 years ahead of the game, read Natural News daily.)
When the first vaccine doesn’t work, try a second or third shot, vaccine quacks insist

Pathetically (and predictably), the New York Times is pushing the same old quackery the vaccine industry has historically invoked to try to cover up the fact that their products were only approved based on systematic scientific fraud (see below for details). Essentially, they’re all claiming that the way to stop vaccinated people from spreading mumps is to vaccinate them over and over again with the same vaccine that didn’t work the first time.

Via the NYT: (bolding added)

Dr. Patricia Quinlisk, the medical director and state epidemiologist for the Iowa Department of Public Health, dealt with an outbreak at the University of Iowa and surrounding area in 2015 to 2016 of more than 450 cases of mumps. The students involved had all had their childhood M.M.R. shots, she said, as required by the university, and the decision was made to hold a series of clinics offering a third dose of vaccine.

Indeed, when the first round of mumps vaccine quackery doesn’t work, the answer from the corrupt and scientifically inept vaccine industry is to push a second vaccine, a third vaccine and soon even a fourth mumps vaccine. This, we are told, will magically make them work if we only have ourselves injected enough times.

Mumps vaccines, in other words, generate their own repeat business by not working. This would be the equivalent in the car industry of a car dealer selling you a lemon vehicle that breaks down on the highway, then claiming you need to buy a second or third vehicle to “reinforce” the first car you bought, because that first car was a total piece of junk. In no other industry, by the way, are people so frequently pushed to buy and consume failed products based on such obvious quackery and junk science.

Remember, too, that the whole idea of immunization is that once your body is exposed to the virus, it builds antibodies for life. But in an attempt to explain why mumps vaccines don’t work, the vaccine industry has fabricated a whole new concept rooted in complete fiction: The idea that vaccines “wear off” and need to be repeated over and over again to make sure they “stick.” This anti-science bunk is, of course, peddled for the sole purpose of selling more vaccines even when they don’t really work as claimed.

Here’s the real reason why mumps vaccines don’t work

The real reason why vaccinated people keep spreading the mumps, of course, is because the mumps vaccine is a complete fraud. This fact has been openly admitted by two virologists who worked for Merck, one of the largest manufacturers of the MMR vaccine. As detailed in the Natural News article, “Merck vaccine fraud exposed by two Merck virologists; company faked mumps vaccine efficacy results for over a decade, says lawsuit“:

According to two Merck scientists who filed a False Claims Act complaint in 2010 — a complaint which has just now been unsealed — vaccine manufacturer Merck knowingly falsified its mumps vaccine test data, spiked blood samples with animal antibodies, sold a vaccine that actually promoted mumps and measles outbreaks, and ripped off governments and consumers who bought the vaccine thinking it was “95% effective.”

The PDF document detailing this False Claims Act is posted here.

From the Natural News story:

According to Stephen Krahling and Joan Wlochowski, both former Merck virologists, the Merck company engaged in all the following behavior:

• Merck knowingly falsified its mumps vaccine test results to fabricate a “95% efficacy rate.”

• In order to do this, Merck spiked the blood test with animal antibodies in order to artificially inflate the appearance of immune system antibodies. As reported in CourthouseNews.com:

Merck also added animal antibodies to blood samples to achieve more favorable test results, though it knew that the human immune system would never produce such antibodies, and that the antibodies created a laboratory testing scenario that “did not in any way correspond to, correlate with, or represent real life … virus neutralization in vaccinated people,” according to the complaint.(http://www.courthousenews.com/2012/06/27/478…)

• Merck then used the falsified trial results to swindle the U.S. government out of “hundreds of millions of dollars for a vaccine that does not provide adequate immunization.”

• Merck’s vaccine fraud has actually contributed to the continuation of mumps across America, causing more children to become infected with mumps. (Gee, really? This is what NaturalNews has been reporting for years… vaccines are actually formulated to keep the outbreaks going because it’s great for repeat business!)

Merck used its false claims of “95 percent effectiveness” to monopolize the vaccine market and eliminate possible competitors.

• The Merck vaccine fraud has been going on since the late 1990’s, say the Merck virologists.

• Testing of Merck’s vaccine was never done against “real-world” mumps viruses in the wild. Instead, test results were simply falsified to achieve the desired outcome.

• This entire fraud took place “with the knowledge, authority and approval of Merck’s senior management.”

• Merck scientists “witnessed firsthand the improper testing and data falsification in which Merck engaged to artificially inflate the vaccine’s efficacy findings,” according to court documents (see below).

Following the unsealing of this 2010 False Claims Act, Chatom Primary Care, based in Alabama, smelled something rotten. Three days ago, Chatom filed a lawsuit against Merck. That lawsuit record is available here.

It alleges, among other shocking things:

[Merck engaged in] …a decade-long scheme to falsify and misrepresent the true efficacy of its vaccine.

Merck fraudulently represented and continues to falsely represent in its labeling and elsewhere that its Mumps Vaccine has an efficacy rate of 95 percent of higher.

In reality, Merck knows and has taken affirmative steps to conceal — by using improper testing techniques and falsifying test data — that its Mumps Vaccine is, and has been since at least 1999, far less than 95 percent effective.

Merck designed a testing methodology that evaluated its vaccine against a less virulent strain of the mumps virus. After the results failed to yield Merck’s desired efficacy, Merck abandoned the methodology and concealed the study’s findings.

…incorporating the use of animal antibodies to artificially inflate the results…

…destroying evidence of the falsified data and then lying to an FDA investigator…

…threatened a virologist in Merck’s vaccine division with jail if he reported the fraud to the FDA…

…the ultimate victims here are the millions of children who every year are being injected with a mumps vaccine that is not providing them with an adequate level of protection. And while this is a disease that, according to the Centers for Disease Control (‘CDC’), was supposed to be eradicated by now, the failure in Merck’s vaccine has allowed this disease to linger, with significant outbreaks continuing to occur.

Chatom Primary Care also alleges that the fraudulent Merck vaccine contributed to the 2006 mumps outbreak in the Midwest, and a 2009 outbreak elsewhere. It says, “there has remained a significant risk of a resurgence of mumps outbreaks…”

What all this proves is that if you really want to stay informed and ahead of the curve on why vaccines fail — and the total science fraud and medical quackery behind them — you need to get your news from independent media sources that aren’t funded by the pharmaceutical industry.

Song of Pheryllt


Much of the material here is drawn from medieval sources inspired by the work of Virgil.  Pheryllt is the welsh form of Virgil.

However do note the immediate affinity to metal workers and alchemy as we discovered through the Kolbrin Bible which does have internal authenticity.  This work at least remembers an ancient sect of teachers or Druids who were also out of the Bronze Age tribe of global metal workers central to the Atlantean world.

Beyond that the time of Stonehenge was prior to 2500 BC and the historical knowledge of the druids time in during Roman times. Linking them is questionable but considering the concurrent Egyptian world and the natural continuity of shared scholarship as shown us with the Kolbrin, it is not impossible at all.

That we are now dredging up bits and pieces is excellent, particularly as i also have a clear grasp of the physicality of the after life and can authenticate much of the material from that aspect.


Song of the Pheryllt - who were the Mysterious Druid builders of Stonehedge?


Welsh history alludes to a very ancient and enigmatic sect of Druids that may be the very first wave of magician priests in the British Isles, even predating the Celtic Druids by hundreds or even thousands of years. Both historical documents in Wales, as well as the rhythmic poems regularly recited by the Welsh Bards, mention an obscure Druid sect known as the Pheryllt, a name denoting “metallurgists” and “alchemists.” The researchers who have studied these documents and poems tout the Pheryllt as being the incipient culture bearers and teachers of Druidism throughout the British Isles, and they have suggested that they may have been the original builders of many of the towering megalithic monuments in Britain, including Stonehenge and Avebury. Certain clues discovered within the Welsh texts imply that the esoteric wisdom of the Pheryllt was once taught within certain Druid academies in the area of Oxford, Snowdon in Wales, and possibly on the Isle of Anglessey, which has been referred to in ancient texts as the “Isle of Teaching.”

In Snowdon, which eventually became their principal headquarters, the Pheryllyt founded a city of spiritual light known in Welsh terminology as the “ambrosial city of Emrys.” Emrys is also remembered as “Dinas Affaraon,” the “place of the Higher Powers,” or the place where a Druid could achieve the apex of his or her higher spiritual powers and consciousness. Emrys was also the headquarters of the “Dragons of Beli” and the dark, destructive Welsh God­dess of Death, Kerridwen, whom the Pheryllt may have brought to Britain with them from their original homeland. It was to Kerridwen that the Pheryllt directed their prayers in order to achieve success in their alchemical and initiatory rites, especially those that culminated in death and spiritual rebirth. Kerridwen personified the dark, destructive as­pect of the Goddess, who has for ages been venerated in many Goddess-centric cultures worldwide as the possessor of all the three powers of creation, preservation and destruction; hence her universal name of “Triple Goddess.” As Kali, Hecate, Sekhmet, and Kerridwen, the dark aspect of the Goddess has traditionally been called forth by Hindu yogis, Greek sages, Egyptian priests and British Druids in order to assist them in their alchemical experiments and transfor­mative practices. After arriving to bless her devotees, the destructive presence of the Dark Goddess would invariably assist her worshippers in evolving beyond the limitations of matter and their egos before catapulting them into the everlasting life of the Infinite Spirit.

Recently, more in-depth information regarding the Pheryllt was brought to the attention of the public with the publication of The 21 Lessons of Merlyn by Douglas Monroe, which claims to be a rendition and commentary of an obscure Welsh text known as The Book of the Pherllyt. According to this text, the Pheryllt arrived in Wales from the sinking Atlantis before setting themselves to the task of building the towering megalithic circles of Britain. The Phe­ryllt are reputed to have been residing in Glastonbury around 2000 B.C., when the region was still under water and composed of a group of islands. Perhaps it was their sojourn in Glastonbury that eventually led to the sacred site be­coming one of the principal headquarters of alchemy in Britain, as well as a special British home of Kerridwen (some say she lives inside the “Spiral Castle” of Glastonbury Tor).

The 21 Lessons of Merlyn has lately come under attack by those who have no knowledge of there ever having been a Book of the Pherllyt. But even if the text is spurious, there has for many years been a general consensus among the Welsh Bards and British Druids that the Pheryllt did indeed once exist and that their wisdom was anciently compiled in the lost “Books of the Pheryllt.” These extinct books are principally mentioned in the Welsh Book of Taliesin, which is a series of alchemical poems supposedly composed by the greatest of bards, the sixth-century Taliesin. Talie­sin’s allegorical poems, which according to some modern Druids present a veiled description of an authentic Druid initiation rite, recount how Kerridwen once prepared a potion within her cauldron of inspiration (or immortality) from an ancient recipe she found in the Books of the Pheryllt. The poems assert that while preparing a potion for her son, Kerridwen mixed together in her cauldron certain ingredients, including sea salt, which would be recognizable to any modern-day alchemist as a basic ingredient for the elixir of immortality.

Kerridwen subsequently made the mistake of leaving her pot to cook under the watchful guidance of a boy named Gwion, who inadvertently allowed three scalding drops of the magic potion to land on his finger before quickly lick­ing off the burning liquid, thus receiving the blessings (or initiation) which were meant for Kerridwen’s son. Kerrid­wen’s anger was thus kindled and a chase ensued between her and Gwion—one that is believed to cryptically expose the lessons and transformations that a Druid would undergo after imbibing Kerridwen’s cauldron of immortality dur­ing his or her initiation ceremony. During the chase Gwion transformed himself successively into the forms of a hare, a fish, a bird, and then finally into a grain of wheat. Meanwhile, while in hot pursuit of Gwion, Kerridwen trans­formed herself into a greyhound, an otter, a hawk, and then a hen that finally caught Gwion and consumed him as a grain of wheat. While inside Kerridwen Gwion gestated within the womb of the dark goddess for nine months, ulti­mately being born from her as the immortal Bard Taliesin. The allegorical Taliesin was then to live for many years as the archetypal Druid initiate.

One of the most remarkable gifts acquired by Gwion during his transformation into Taliesin—and what made Ta­liesin truly great—was Awen, which is loosely translated as “inspiration.” It is because of this special gift received by initiated bards that Kerridwen’s cauldron is commonly referred to by them as the “cauldron of inspiration.” Through the power of Awen” a bard is able to access inner inspiration and intuitive wisdom emanating from the deepest levels of his or her being. As this wisdom bubbles to the surface he or she is then able to articulate it in the form of poetic verse. Perhaps a more relatable and modern translation of Awen is “gnosis,” a word that denotes the intuitive wisdom that emerges from deep within oneself as the result of spiritual practice and answers many questions about oneself and the universe. But Awen is not just gnosis; the term contained an even more inclusive meaning for the Druids. It also denoted the primal sound that creates the physical universe. Awen is thus the Druid counterpart of the Hindu AUM, which is a name for the creative force of the universe as well as the primal Goddess who is that force. This pri­meval Goddess force is also known among the Hindu sages as Shakti or Kundalini.

But power of Awen and Kundalini—which are names of the Triple Goddess—is also destructive. It is as Kundalini that the Hindu yogis traditionally invoke the destructive goddess during their transformative yogic practices. The yo­gis believe that the goddess as Kundalini becomes destructive following the creation of the human species, when she curls up at the base of the human spine and waits until a person is ready to destroy the limitations that keep him or her from knowing their true nature as spirit and accessing their inner gnostic wisdom. In this destructive aspect Kundalini is a name for Goddess as Kali, and therefore a name for the Greek Hecate and the Druid’s Kerridwen. Thus, Awen, AUM, Kundalini, Kali and Kerridwen are all interconnected, and they all denote the goddess and her power. Therefore, it can be said that Kerridwen and her cauldron of inspiration and immortality dwell at the base of every­one’s spine.

A Welsh reference to Kerridwen and her home at the base of the human spine is ostensibly woven into The Spoils of Annwn, one of the alchemical poems contained within The Book of Taliesin. According to the allegory alluded to in the poem, while traveling through Annwn, the underworld, King Arthur and his knights discover the Holy Grail (the cauldron of Kerridwen) in the four-cornered castle in the Isle of the Strong (or closed) Door. This poetic location of Kerridwen’s Cauldron appears to be a cryptic allusion to the Kundalini of the Hindu yogis that lies deep within a per­son (their underworld) in the four petal Muladhara Chakra (the Four Cornered Castle) at the entrance to the Su­shumna energy meridian (the Closed Door).

Obviously, there are salient similarities between the Druid Pheryllt and the yogis of India. Such outstanding links have inspired researchers to seek an ancient relationship between the two cultures; and at least one appears to have been found. Welsh records maintain that the very first Druids, i.e., the Pheryllt, arrived in Wales as part of the migra­tion of Cymry, a people who had traveled from the “Summer Land” of “Defrobani.” Defrobani is the Welsh word for Taprobana, an early name for Sri Lanka, an island off the coast of India that shares the same yogic culture. It is said that the Cymry were guided from Defrobani or Sri Lanka to the British Isles by the Welsh culture hero Hu Gadarn, and the proof of their journey can be found in the Welsh language which is full of Sanskrit root words. Once in Wales Hu Gadarn founded the first sect of Druids, who were worshippers of Kerridwen and believed to have been the Phe­ryllt. Spence contends that the Cymry looked upon Hu Gadarn and Kerridwen the same way the Hindus regard Lord Shiva and the Goddess Shakti of India. Thus, the Welsh divine pair may have originated as the Hindus’ primal couple before being brought to Britain.

Who Built Stonehenge & Avebury?

There are numerous reasons to believe that the Pheryllt built many of the megalithic circles in Britain, not the least of which is that they are natural alchemical crucibles for initiation and, therefore, made-to-order structures for Pheryllt ritual. Of course, the Pheryllt must be considered to be much more qualified as candidates to have built these structures than those currently suggested by the academic community—the five-foot-tall primitive “Beaker People” of Neolithic times. And the Pheryllt were more likely to have been in possession with the supernatural abili­ties and advanced technologies required for the task of transporting 10-20 ton stones hundreds of miles, because such abilities naturally accrue from the practice of inner alchemy. The use of magical powers in the building Stone­henge was originally suggested by the thirteenth-century Welsh historian Geoffrey of Monmouth’s The History of the Kings of Britain. After closely studying ancient Welsh records, Geoffrey maintained that the stones of Stonehenge were moved to their present location by Merlin—a Druid descendant of the Pheryllt—through magical means. Magic or the use of anti-gravity technology is the only possible explanation for how many of the worlds’ ancient megalithic structures, including those of Peru and Egypt, could have been built.

The alchemical properties of the British stone circles can be readily discerned through their polarity-uniting de­signs. The theory of alchemy stipulates that for a structure to generate the power of alchemy—i.e., the destructive power of the goddess—the ability to unite the male/female polarity must be incorporated into its design. In ancient times the alchemically designed pyramids and stone circles of the Pheryllt and other sacred architects worldwide were placed over vortexes that by nature already united the male/female polarity and produced the alchemical power.

Thus, the power these ancient megaliths produced added to a preexistent alchemical force and amplified it. This is certainly the case in Britain, where many of the stone circles have been proven to lie on vortex points where two po­lar opposite lines, the St. Michael and St. Mary lines, bisect each other. These two major ley lines run north from Cornwall, and their crossing is especially noticeable at the stone circle of Avebury and Glastonbury Tor.

Avebury’s role as an “alchemical crucible” is decidedly enhanced by its megalithic structure. Avebury consists of one large circle within which reside two smaller male/female circles. The small female circle is located in the north­ern part of the larger circle, and is therefore associated with female darkness and cold residing in the northern direction. By contrast, the small male circle is located in the southern region of the larger circle and therefore absorbs the fiery and light qualities that exist in that direction. The male circle also once possessed a huge defining “male” obe­lisk within its center. It has been suggested that during sacred times of the year the ritual leaders of Avebury knew the secrets of how to unite the energies of the two smaller polar-opposite circles and thereby produce the power of Kerridwen. The eighteenth-century antiquarian William Stukeley was adamant that a head and tail were once at­tached to the larger Avebury circle, thus making it a gigantic serpent and an undeniable temple of Kerridwen, whose symbols include a dragon or serpent.

Stonehenge’s design also makes it a perfect megalithic alchemical crucible. The universal polarity is obviously united at Stonehenge during sunrise at the Summer Solstice when the first male rays of the sun rise over the heel stone and inseminate the female circle or ovum. But at other times of the year a union of the polarity is generated by the union of the “female” circle of 30 sarsens that is bisected or inseminated at its center by the phallic male “horse­shoe” of 10 larger sarsens. The number 30, which corresponds to the lunar month and the triple goddess, is associat­ed with the female principle, while the number 10, the numerological equivalent of the Hebrew Yod, is associated with the male principle.

Thus it appears that the ancient Pheryllt Druids may have indeed been the original Druids in Britain and the builders of its stone circles. Future researches into the ancient past of Britain should, therefore, include the mysteri­ous Pheryllt alchemists.

What is the Book of Pheryllt?


I keep seeing references to a supposed medieval Welsh manuscript called The Book of Pheryllt. I have a suspicion that most, if not all of these references, are inspired by the truly wretched and quite idiotic book The 21 Lessons of Merlyn by Douglas Monroe. Monroe, who has neither Irish nor Welsh, refers to The Book of Pheryllt as a sixteenth century manuscript of arcane Welsh mystical learning.

“Drivel” is the most polite way I can refer to Monroe’s claims. There is no such sixteenth century manuscript. Monroe’s recent “sequel” to 21 Lessons of Merlyn, The Lost Books of Merlyn is an obvious fake from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, full of egregious factual errors and offensive sexist and racist assumptions. At best it is a piece of poorly thought out fiction; it has no scholarly value as an authentic early manuscript at all. Monroe clearly knows nothing about ancient Celtic practices, languages, druids, botany, or mythology, and his ritual practices are derived from modern Wicca and ceremonial magic rather than authentic ancient pagan Celtic practice.
What then, is The Book of Pheryllt ?

Pheryllt is the Welsh spelling for Virgil; the Latin V in “Vergilius” goes to an initial F in Welsh, which in medieval manuscripts may be written Ph. You may also see ff, as in fferyllt. The Book of Pheryllt then, is a reference to The Book of Virgil

Virgil is the Latin poet who wrote the Eclogues and The Aeneid and lived 70-19 B. C. E. During his lifetime, Virgil was famed as a poet and his works became classics soon after his death. Both Christians and pagans would select a passage at random from Virgil’s works as method of divination. The Roman Emperor Hadrian is said to have consulted the sortes Vergilianae in an effort to inquire into his future. Virgil’s fourth Eclogue (Written c.41 or 40 BCE) was thought by many, including St. Jerome, to predict the birth of Christ. Indeed, Virgil’s medieval and renaissance popularity was close to that of the Bible, so popular that a letter by Jerome praising Virgil’s wisdom was included as a Preface to most Latin Vulgate Bibles from the ninth century (Williams and Pattie 1982, 86).

By the twelfth century Virgil’s reputation as a poet, and sometimes prophet, had evolved to that of a magician. Gervase of Tilbury reports various “miracles” attributed to Virgil, like a piece of meat that kept other meat from ever spoiling, no matter how old it got (Williams and Pattie 1982, 90). Eventually Virgil’s reputation grew until he was the magical protector of the city of Naples. There are numerous medieval references to Virgil as a magician, and folklore about his prowess continued to multiply until the Renaissance.

The medieval tradition of Virgil as a worker of wonders and as a magician flourished in Welsh literature as well. The Welsh poet Dafydd ap Gwilim refers to the patterns on a garland of peacock feathers given him by his beloved as “drychau o ffeiriau Fferyll, “mirrors from Virgil’s fairs.” In another poem ap Gwilim’s beloved (one of many) is described as an enchantress; ap Gwilim describes a silver harp to be given to her as
Ei chwr y sydd, nid gwydd gwyll,
O ffurf celfyddyd Fferyll.
Its frame not made from forest wood
but conjured by Virgilian art (Bromwich 1982, 38-39).
The central Welsh reference to the Book of Pheryllt is in the late sixteenth century Welsh prose tale the Hanes Taliesin in which Ceridwen is described as knowledgeable about “gelfyddyd Llyfrau Pheryllt,” or “the art of the Books of Virgil,” in reference to a spell intended to make her son wise.
Ag yna yr orediniodd hi drwy gelfyddyd llyfrau Pheryllt i ferwi pair o awen a gwybodau oi map fal y bai urddassach ei gymeriat am ei wybodau ai gyfrwyddyt am y byt a ddelei rrag llaw (“Y Hanes Taliessin.” In Ystoria Taliesin. ed. Patrick K. Ford. 133).

And so to encompass this matter, she turned her thoughts to the contemplation of her arts to see how best she could make him full of the spirit of prophecy and a great prognosticator of the world to come” (Ford, Patrick K. 1977, “The Tale of Gwion Bach,” 162).
The reference to the Book of Pheryllt in the Hanes Taliesin is not to a genuine book, but rather to the myth of Virgil the wondrous magician (Wood 1983, 97). The scribe, needing a suitable magical text, seized upon Virgil as the magician’s magician. Patrick Ford has edited one manuscript of the Hanes Taliesin in his Ystoria Taliesin, and translated the tale in his The Mabinogi and Other Medieval Welsh Tales. Lady Charlotte Guest also translated the Hanes Taliesin, but Ford’s translation is much better, and more reliable. Lady Charlotte, like many first generation Welsh scholars, was taken in by the various forgeries Iolo Morganwg/Edward Williams (1747-1826) created in the 1790s, and inadvertently relied on some forged material for her translation. Indeed, Williams’ forgeries are still wreaking havoc today since many neopagan scholars have been as taken in by Williams’ inventive scholarship as Lady Charlotte was in her era.

There are other references to Virgil as a magician in the Taliesin material, including “Cad Goddeu,” where the poet claims “And I shall be in luxury because of the prophecy of Virgil” (Ford, Patrick K. 1977, 187). 

The word “pheryllt/fferrylt” itself is not cited in Welsh until 1632, and most of the citations for fferyll(t) in the major Welsh dictionary are more pharmaceutical than wizardly (Geiriadur Prifysgol Cymru. p.1284 Ed. R. J. Thomas, Cardiff: University of Wales, 1950-). Fferyll(t) became synomynous with “magician,” so great was Virgil’s reputation for wonder working. Even today Virgil’s mythic reputation as a maker of potions has left its mark. In Modern Welsh fferyll(t) usually means “pharmacist.” There’s a false etymology for pheryllt floating around the web that links it to “fferu” or “congeal” and hence to the Modern English “ferrous.” This folk etymology is inaccurate because ferrous is a Latin borrowing from “ferrum,” the word for iron.

If you’re truly interested in druids and authentic pagan Celtic practices, go to legitimate scholarly sources based on genuine scholarship. If you’re still not convinced that Monroe’s Twenty-One Lessons of Merlyn and The Lost Books of Merlyn are works of fiction, (after all, I’m a Celticist, not a druid) take a look at what these Neo Pagan authorities have to say about Monroe’s works:

Repair decayed teeth with “bioactive” glass that remineralizes teeth without fluoride

Image: Repair decayed teeth with “bioactive” glass that remineralizes teeth without fluoride

(Natural News) Glass is not a material typically associated with dental hygiene. Yet a team of researchers from Queen Mary University of London’s (QMUL) Institute of Dentistry is working on changing that. According to ScienceDaily.com, the researchers have developed a fast-dissolving “bioactive” glass that they’re putting in toothpaste called “BioMinC”, a new toothpaste that repairs decayed teeth.

The toothpaste is an offshoot of their earlier product, “BioMinF” toothpaste. The key differences between these toothpastes is that the major component in BioMinF is fluoride-containing glass, while BioMinC has chlorine-containing glass. Compared to BioMinF, BioMinC has a more reactive glass and promotes formation of apatite at a more rapid pace.

BioMinC works by forming a coating of crystalline hydroxyapatite, a chemical that serves as both a major component and important ingredient in normal teeth and bones. Hydroxyapatite normally gives bones and teeth their structure, while the hydroxyapatite in BioMinC imitates bone and teeth mineral to return lost minerals to decayed teeth.

“This toothpaste is unique because it can put back the mineral lost from your teeth after consumption of an acidic drink, but without the use of fluoride. This isn’t just for people who have bad teeth, everyone can potentially benefit from using this new toothpaste,” said Robert Hill, Professor of Physical Sciences in Relation to Dentistry at QMUL. (Related: Study shows fluoride may not help teeth at all.)

In addition to remineralizing teeth, another major benefit of BioMinC is that it can occlude patent dentinal tubules, which are minuscule canals in teeth that can detect stimuli and lead to hypersensitivity when teeth enamel are worn down. BioMinC decreases the risk of hypersensitivity by slipping into the tiny cracks of the teeth and breaks down upon contact with acid before the enamel does, in turn making the teeth all the more resistant to acidic foods and beverages.

BioMinC will become available by the end of this year. It will be sold under the team’s spin-out company, BioMin Technologies Ltd., and the price is to be determined.

While BioMinC holds a lot of promise, its efficacy will definitely be helped by good dental hygiene habits. Taking care of your teeth and gums is a must since poor oral health can do a number on your overall physical health and self-esteem. Fortunately, proper gum and teeth care is fairly easy to accomplish without the need for expensive or complicated dental gadgetry. You just need to keep the following in mind and make habits out of them:
  • Limit your intake of sugary and starchy foods – Nearly everyone knows this by now but it bears repeating: going overboard on candy and sugar is a gateway too tooth decay. This is because sugar feeds the mouth bacteria that generate enamel-weakening and tooth-damaging acids. These acids then begin the demineralization process, and the mouth can take well over an hour before it returns to its normal, non-acidic pH state. These same bacteria consume the fermentable carbohydrates found in breads, crackers, and other starchy foods, so be wary of these as well.
  • Floss everyday – Your toothbrush can’t clean every tight space between your teeth. These hard-to-reach areas are highly vulnerable to plaque build-up which can then become gum disease in the long run. Flossing prevents this from happening by stirring up the bacterial colonies occupying those tight spaces and making them less dangerous.
  • Use a soft-bristled toothbrush – A hard-bristled toothbrush may be good at removing plaque and stains from our teeth, but it can also wear down the enamel that protect our teeth from harmful bacteria. Moreover, hard-bristled toothbrushes can actually damage our gums too and cause them to recede, making our teeth more susceptible to sensitivity and cavities. You won’t have to worry about any of these when you use soft-bristled toothbrush. While they do wear down quicker than hard-bristled toothbrushes, it’s recommended that you change your toothbrush every three to four months anyway.
  • Brush your tongue  Your tongue may not be prone to cavities, but its rough surface is the perfect breeding ground for bad bacteria. Simply using mouthwash won’t kill the bacteria since doing this only gets rid of the outer cells of the bacteria and not the cells they need to survive. Brushing your tongue will do what mouthwash can’t.

The technology exists today to make this particular scenario work out.  It naturally helps to supply a 200 family client base.

Add in robotic support for close grooming and we have a hugely productive agricultural protocol.

Integrating livestock allows close grooming of woodlands and natural grasslands as well.  Chickens are used to initially process garden lands such as shown here to produce a weed and insect suppressed growing environment.  Throw in a biochar enriched organic mulch and the soils will continuously improve.

Right now a couple can master an acre or two well enough of garden and perhaps several additional acres in orchard trees along with free range chickens and a couple of goats to suppress the understory.

This way of life will dominate human existence for the coming millennia and will be known as heaven on earth..

(Natural News) Can small-scale farming in the modern age really generate enough income for the average family to make anhonest living? For Jean-Martin Fortier and his wife, Maude-Hélène Desroches, it does. The Canadian couple grows beets, broccoli, salad greens, carrots, and various other types of produce on their modest 1.5 acres of land, from which they generate an average of at least $140,000 per year in sales – not too shabby!

They tell all in their new book The Market Gardener: A Successful Grower’s Handbook for Small-Scale Organic Farming, sharing many of the secrets they’ve uncovered about the local nature of food production. There’s no need for large agricultural organizations to “feed the world,” as goes the mantra, when everyday people are feeding themselves and their communiti

While the general perception is that farming, and especially the “backyard” variety, is more of a hobby for most people than it is a source of income, Fortier and his wife believe otherwise. Their own successful farm serves as living proof that it’s more than possible for people to get into the agricultural business and do well if they possess the drive and wherewithal to make it happen.

Born and raised in Quebec, Fortier started farming with his wife when he was still an intern at WWOOFers, a worldwide organic farming movement that promotes cultural and educational experiences to help people form communities around locally-grown food. They started out by renting some land to grow food, and gradually worked their way up to owning their own land and launching a full-scale business out of it.

Today, they grow an extensive mix of produce that requires them to work the land for nine months out of the year. From their bounty, they feed 200 families a week that subscribe to their community-supported agriculture program, also known as a CSA. Members of a CSA typically receive a fresh box of produce weekly or bi-weekly as part of their subscription.

“I felt that there was a need for [a book] like this,” Fortier says, referencing these and other concepts as he covers them in his book. “I have been involved with growing the food movement. My response was to tell people that they can grow and here is how.”

Growing better, not bigger, can still be highly profitable

But what about organic growing methods? Foregoing the use of chemical pesticides and herbicides oftentimes comes with added costs and labor, not to mention the possibility of lower yields. Does growing organic food specifically still bode well in the profit department? According to Fortier and his wife, absolutely.3

When they first started out, the couple adopted unique methods of growing food that Fortier describes as being “biologically intensive.” Many of these natural methods of permaculture they still use today, including conservation tillage, permanent growing beds, and crop rotation, all of which have proven to be a huge success.

Fortier and his wife also do much of the work on their farm by hand rather than use expensive equipment – and yet still generate impressive sales numbers. They apply organic fertilizer, save seeds, manage weeds, insects, pests, and disease, and even harvest their crops using simple, traditional methods of old that still allow them to remain competitive in the agricultural marketplace.

“We could have followed a route similar to that taken by all other growers we knew: invest in a tractor and move towards a more mechanized growing system,” Fortier says. “Instead, we opted to stay small-scale and continue relying on our hands and light power tools.”

31 (8000?) Sealed Indictments In D.C?

What we have here is speculation at the moment that arose a week ago while Trump was Overseas.  Other reports flushed out another 290 sealed indictments which may all be completely unrelated.  we simply do not know.

On the other hand the narrative does make excellent sense and  superior to what we actually have or have not been told.  Add in the statement made by a former insider that the NSA data has been processed by the DOJ for the past decade and we have ample likely cause for 290 sealed indictments.

Recall that data includes every phone call and email ever made.  Thus it has become possible to construct all the networks of folks who are self serving in a criminal manner.  This is no small matter when you consider that in the past such  investigations always needed a tip off for questions to be asked.

My central point here is that a massive housecleaning is completely plausible and definitely possible.  Add in Muellar and Trump carefully playing the media while this is going on and this is truly huge and likely about to happen.  It certainly kept the perps asleep with false hope until their interviews.  It will be the biggest sting in history.

So far Trump has consistently done better than i was able to imagine and executed better.  We are now waiting for the real boot to drop on those declared internal enemies of the State.  It is not his style to let things ride.

Hammer Of Justice Falls On Clinton Crime Family – 31 Sealed Indictments In D.C. 

Baxter Dmitry 


President Trump and Robert Mueller are on the cusp of pulling off the most brilliant sting in American political history, with the corrupt Clinton/Obama cabal about to feel the full force of the law.

With 31 sealed indictments now lodged in D.C., President Trump wasn’t joking when he said the coming week was going to be SUPER MEGA MAGA. It’s beer and popcorn time.

Eleanor Roosevelt said “justice cannot be for one side alone, but must be for both,” and when the hammer of justice comes down on these corrupt liberals all of America will be better off. Liberals will moan and mourn their fallen icons, but future generations will thank us for locking up some of the most depraved, craven individuals the world has ever seen.

Just look at these beautiful sealed indictments. Every single one of them represents a criminal Clinton/Obama crony that will be spending years and years behind bars for high crimes against the United States.

BREAKING: 7 new indictments filed in DC, that's 31 total! President Trump wasn't kidding when he said today would be a big! The is here!

Rewind to the third presidential debate, when Trump made a shocking promise to Clinton in the event he got elected. “If I win, I’m going to instruct my attorney general to get a special prosecutor to look into your situation…we’re going to have a special prosecutor,” Trump said.

Clinton responded, “It’s just awfully good that someone with the temperament of Donald Trump is not in charge of the law in our country.” Trump then interrupted and said: “Because you’d be in jail.” Trump’s statement was met with cheers and thunderous applause.

Liz Crokin reports: Trump’s famous “because you’d be in jail” line is constantly rotated throughout the Internet via memes and videos on social media to this day; however, what many seem to have forgotten is the first part of Trump’s statement: he promised to assign a special prosecutor to look into Clinton’s crimes.

Fast forward to May 16, President Trump is now in the White House and meets with Robert Mueller. CNN reported that Trump interviewed him as a potential replacement for fired FBI Director James Comey. As Trump would say, “wrong!” It’s not possible that Mueller could’ve been interviewing for the FBI director position because he already served in that capacity – under Presidents George W. Bush and briefly Barack Obama – and he exceeded the term limit allowed to work in that role. The term limit is ten years and Mueller served as FBI director for 12 years. Mueller got a special additional two-year extension from Obama that the Senate approved. The fake news totally got this wrong — to no one’s surprise.

So what was the meeting really about? I believe Trump was finalizing his decision to appoint Mueller as his special prosecutor to investigate Clinton. Don’t believe it? Keep reading.

The day after Mueller’s meeting with Trump, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein appointed Mueller to serve as special counsel for the United States Department of Justice. In the appointment record signed by Rosenstein it reads:

The fact is President Trump and Robert Mueller are performing the greatest sting operation in history. Clinton’s lies and machinations have come back to haunt her, and her closest allies are going to prison. The only question left unanswered is whether Hillary Clinton herself will also end up behind bars.

The Special Counsel is authorized to conduct an investigation including “any links and/or coordination between Russian government and individuals associated with the campaign of President Donald Trump, and any matters that arose or may arise directly from the investigation.”

Trump did not collude with Russia. The left and the media have carried that narrative based off of lies and a fake dossier. Trump allowed them to carry their false narrative because he knew he was innocent and that the investigation would eventually turn to the real parties who colluded with Russia. Enter the Clintons. What stands out in the affidavit Rosenstein signed included “matters that arose or may arise directly from the investigation” because they knew an investigation into Russian collusion would eventually lead to Clinton.

Trump is a man of his word and he’s making good on all of his campaign promises, so why wouldn’t he keep this one? The left and the media has been so blinded by their partisanship that they’ve failed to see that the greatest bait and switch in the history of the world is going down right before their very eyes. They’ve naively assumed that since Mueller had been a part of the swamp, he’d protect the swamp. However, just because he’s associated with corrupt politicians like the Clintons for years does not mean that he likes them or has any interest in protecting them at this point. After all, the Clintons did go to Trump’s wedding and you know what they say: keep your friends close and your enemies closer.

So the investigation is steering straight for the real guilty actors and Tony Podesta is under the gun for The Podesta Group’s involvement with selling the country’s Uranium to Russia. This will lead to the indictments of his brother, John, Clinton’s former campaign manager, and, yes, Hillary too! Now if Mueller wasn’t going after Tony, why did he step down as CEO of his company last week? Multiple sources have confirmed to me Podesta is one of the 17 sealed indictments currently sitting in DC.

Other guilty swamp creatures are catching on to the true nature of Mueller’s investigation. On Oct. 30, Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi issued a call for an independent investigation into Trump’s alleged campaign collusion with Russians just moments after Mueller unsealed indictments for campaign operatives Paul Manafort and Rick Gates. She’s also softened her tone from calling for Trump’s impeachment to now stating “impeaching Trump is not someplace we should go”.

Last week, top Democrats Elizabeth Warren and Donna Brazile threw Clinton under the bus by admitting she rigged the primary against Bernie Sanders. Why would they do this now? They’re distancing themselves from Clinton for a reason.

On Nov. 3, The Hill reported that Trump said that he’ll be proven innocent in the Russia election meddling investigation if special counsel Mueller treats “everything fairly”. “I hope he’s treating everything fairly and if he is I’m going to be very happy because when you talk about innocent, I am truly not involved in any form of collusion with Russia,” Trump said on Sharyl Attkisson’s show Full Measure.

When Trump was asked if he’d consider firing Mueller, he responded by stating he was confident he’d be absolved of wrongdoing. If Mueller is so corrupt and intent on protecting the Clintons, like so many on both the right and the left believe, why isn’t Trump sweating? He alluded that he’s not even thinking about firing Mueller. Not only is Trump a man of his word, he’s rarely ever wrong and his instincts are killer. It also should be noted that Mueller is a decorated Marine who served in Vietnam and has received many medals including the Purple Heart.

Mueller was hired to investigate Clinton, period. This will go down as one of the most brilliant sting operations in history.

Rise and fall of American civilizations linked to hurricane frequency

Rise and fall of American civilizations linked to hurricane frequency
 This is important.  The Mayan collapse has begged explanation for decades.  As well we also have significant coastal abandonment at other locales to explain.  Hurricanes solve the whole problem nicely.

After all since our recent bombardment, coastal construction is looking far too fool hardy.  Now imagine the frequency jumping to decadal rather than every century.  That is what happened and recovery became impossible as would happen with us as well.

We are also seeing how a poorly organized society gets on as well in Puerto Rico.  They are not too far from all been refugees..

Rise and fall of American civilizations linked to hurricane frequency

Between 800 AD and 900 AD, when the Maya civilization collapsed, there were 250% more hurricanes each year than today.

In ongoing studies funded by the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), National Science Foundation, Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), National Geographic Society, United States Navy and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, scientists have been able to pinpoint the locations and chronology of major hurricanes as far back as 400 AD.  The researchers have also been able to determine changes in the temperature of the Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea.  Ocean temperatures currently are the highest they have been since before the Ice Age. 

The current status of this fascinating research is being presented by the Nova Series on PBS.  The program is entitled, Major Hurricanes and is also being streamed online. 

Major Hurricanes only makes a brief reference to the impact of hurricane activity and ocean water temperature on American indigenous civilizations.  However, the chronological syncopation between Mesoamerica, the Southeastern cultures and the Desert Southwest cultures is patently obvious in the chart above.

When the People of One Fire was founded in 2006, one of the major questions that we sought to answer was “What caused apparently sudden changes in the cultural development of the indigenous peoples of Southeastern North America?”  Academic anthropology had shifted to the micro-scale, seldom looking a regional populations or migration of ethnic groups.  They ignored the migration legends of the various branches of the Creek Confederacy.  

Meanwhile, the bulk of actual archaeological investigations had shifted to private consulting firms, who were primarily working at archaeological sites about to be destroyed by construction. More recently,  many archaeological firms have been gobbled up by national engineering firms. There are no incentives for private consultants to address the issues, which are of concern to Native Americans.  The pressure is on the archaeologists to get in and get out without causing controversies or even attaching special significance to the site they are working on.

Current status of research

In contrast, these studies of historic hurricane activity and changes in ocean water temperature are definitely on the track to answering the questions of Native American researchers about the “whys” of past civilizations.  There is an obvious chronological connections between the rise and fall of indigenous civilizations and climatic changes.  However . . .  here is the big surprise . . . the impact of climatic change can be diametrically opposite between individual regions of Mesoamerica and North America.

A major breakthrough in climatological research occurred when marine scientists realized that the beds of under-ocean cenotes or sink holes contained precise records of major hurricane strikes. Particles of wood within the varying sand strata can be radiocarbon dated.  During major hurricanes, much coarser sand is pushed by underwater currents into the bottom of the cenote.

The research by NOAA sponsored scientists, which were featured in the PBS program are augmented by an ongoing research project at the University of Massachusetts. Professors Jeffrey P. Donnelly and Jonathan D. Woodruff have successfully taken the hurricane record back at least 5,000 years, using the same techniques featured on the PBS program. Using locations on the Atlantic Coast with far higher contents of woody materials, they have obtained precise dates for monster hurricanes, which struck eastern North America.

One of the many fascinating discoveries made so far by the scientific teams is that the predominant paths of major hurricanes wobble northward and southward through the decades.   Currently, the researchers do not understand why.  In the early 1990s, major hurricanes tended to strike southern Florida and then turn northward into the heart of the Southeast.  In the late 1990s, large hurricanes tended to travel westward, south of the Leeward Islands and strike Central America.  In the first decade of the 21st century, several major hurricanes traveled northward of the Leeward Islands then entered the Gulf of Mexico.  We are now entering a period when huge hurricanes are actually forming in the Gulf of Mexico.  It is possible that in the near future they will form in the Gulf then be carried up the Atlantic Coast by the Gulf Stream.  Alternatively, they could travel across the Lower Southeast.

The temperature of the water in the Atlantic Ocean did not have as much effect on indigenous
 peoples of the Americas as originally theorized.

Climatologists initially theorized that the fluctuations in the size and frequency of major hurricanes were due to the temperatures of the Atlantic Ocean.  There seems to be some relationship between warming of ocean waters and hurricanes, but the scientists are still not sure what exactly it is.  Nevertheless, the climatologists are convinced that the radical heating of the North Atlantic Ocean now occurring will radically change the climatic patterns of both North America and Western Europe.

Formative Period  (1600 BC-200 AD) – Until around 800 BC, Mesoamerican cultures trailed behind those in northern Louisiana and Georgia, except in regard to the domestication of indigenous crops.  

Mounds in Louisiana and Georgia predate those in Mexico by at least 2,500 years.  Pottery in Georgia predates the appearance of pottery in Mesoamerica by about 2,800 years.  During the period between 3500 BC and 200 AD, there were relatively few hurricanes in Mesoamerica. 

Maya city-states boomed as the frequency of hurricanes was rapidly increasing, but crashed, 
when they reached their peak.
Classic Period  (200 AD – 900 AD)

Although Teotihuacan began booming around 0 AD, the appearance of the earliest Maya writing system is the official beginning of the Classic Period.  Notice that the steep rise in cultural advancements in Mesoamerica parallels the steep rise in the number of major hurricanes.  By 800 AD, the number of major hurricanes each year exceeded what we are experiencing today.  By 900 AD, there were at least 25 major hurricanes in the region and all Classic Mesoamerican civilizations had collapsed.

Cultural History: So . . . the period between 800 AD and 900 AD when Maya civilization collapsed was also a period when there were 250% more catastrophic hurricanes each year than today.  This is a causative factor for the collapse of Maya civilization that has never been considered by anthropologists.  

In 1998, Hurricane Mitch hit Central American as a Category 5 storm.   The damage it did, would have killed thousands of Mayas 1100 years earlier.  The hurricane’s impact would have been sufficient to wipe out the Lowland Maya Civilization, already weakened by wars and drought.   Cities in the northern Yucatan Peninsula continued to thrive after the Lowland cities were abandoned.  This is a fact that cannot be explained by droughts or war.  All of the Yucatan was experiencing a drought and there are no surface streams in the Northern Yucatan . . . only cenotes or natural wells.

Post-Classic Period  (900 AD – 1520 AD)

Between 900 AD and 1400 AD, the number of major hurricanes in the Caribbean each year dropped, but were much more numerous than today.  Between years and decades there were wide variations in the number of major hurricanes. Evidence developed by the scientists in Massachusetts suggests that the paths of major hurricanes tended to shift away from Mesoamerica and toward Cuba, Dominica, Puerto Rico and the Atlantic Coast of North America.  There was an extremely catastrophic hurricane, which hit the Yucatan Peninsula around 1000 AD.

Cultural History: The year, 1000 AD is highly significant.  There was a temporary abandonment of Chichen Itza, with many of its suburbs, where the commoners and slaves lived, being permanently abandoned. There were also stark changes in the Southeast, which will be discussed in the next section. Suddenly, the type of corner door houses, built by Itza Commoners in Chichen Itza, appeared in at several locations in North and Central Georgia.

During the period between 1000 AD and 1200 AD, much of northeastern, central and Gulf Coast Mexico experienced major population growth and cultural advancement.  Southern Mexico and Central America stagnated, but still contained some cities and a very advanced culture . . . at least for the Americas.

Around 1250 AD, the Tamauli almost completely abandoned Tamaulipas on the Gulf Coast.  Most Tamauli ended up in Alabama and Georgia.  Some may have settled in Louisiana and Mississippi.  One band definitely canoed back to their homeland in Tabasco.

After around 1400 AD, the center of advanced civilization in Mexico was the Valley of Mexico. It was here that the Mexica joined an alliance with two other city states to create the Aztec Empire.

Southeastern North America
Late Archaic Period and Early Woodland Period  (3500 BC-0 AD)

Cultural advancements such as public architecture and ceramics came much earlier to the Southeast than in Mexico.  Like in the Caribbean Basin and Gulf of Mexico, evidence discovered so far suggests that there were very few major hurricanes during these centuries. 

Cultural History: There were two centers of advanced culture in the Late Archaic Period – Northeast Louisiana and the Savannah, GA area.   The Bilbo Mound in Savannah dates from 3545 BC.  It was originally a man-made island within a large round harbor and connecting canal to the Savannah River.  The Watson Brake Earthworks date from around 3450 BC.  They consist of a circular earth berm with mounds built on top of it.

Between around 3200 BC and 1600 BC, there were major mound centers clustered around the Bilbo Mound and shell mound – shell midden complexes in southwest Florida.  Around 2500 BC both pottery and shell rings appeared on the South Atlantic Coast between Charleston, SC and St. Augustine, FL.  The oldest shell rings are near the mouth of the Altamaha River in Georgia.  Most of the surviving, early mounds on the South Atlantic Coast are near the Bilbo Mound, but some may have been destroyed by hurricanes that occurred later.

The cultural avant garde returned to northeastern Louisiana around 1600 BC and 1000 BC, with the construction of both Poverty Point type platform villages and dome-shaped mounds.   Beginning around 1000 BC, the Deptford Culture spread out from Savannah and became most substantive in the lower North Georgia Mountains and Upper Chattahoochee River Basin.  Some villages established on the Upper Chattahoochee and Upper Etowah Rivers maintained almost continually occupied until the 1700s.  They were abandoned due to the Creek-Cherokee War.

Around 400 BC, the Deptford Culture began evolving into the Kellogg and Cartersville Cultures.  Villages  and towns in this culture eventually built large platform mounds that were truncated ovals.  Truncated ovals are an architectural tradition indigenous to Georgia . . . not Mesoamerica or Peru.  This is important to remember.

By 200 AD, some of these towns such as the Mandeville Site on the Chattahoochee River, the Booger Bottom Mound Village and Leake’s Mound village were quite large.  The principal Mandeville Mound was a square truncated pyramid, typical of Mesoamerica.  The Deptford Mounds in North Georgia were truncated ovals.

Middle and Late Woodland Period  (0 AD – 900 AD)

Almost imperceptibly at first, but then after 400 AD at astonishing rate of increase, major hurricanes began striking the Caribbean Basin and Atlantic Coast.  By 900 AD, 25 major hurricanes a year were striking the region.  As always, the Georgia Coast was the least effected section of the Atlantic Coast.

Around 539 AD, an asteroid or comet struck the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Cape Canaveral.  Its tsunami obliterated the barrier islands of Florida and left a massive debris ridge on the Georgia coast, which is still 85 feet high and several hundred feet wide in some places.  Afterward, the debris ridge protected the Georgia Coastal Plain from 11 to 16 miles inland from hurricane winds and tidal surges.

Cultural History: The Early Woodland cultures in Louisiana and Georgia evolved into the Marksville, Swift Creek and Weeden Island Cultures.  Swift Creek villages in southeast Georgia disappeared after the tsunami.  The Swift Creek Culture began declining rapidly, while Swift Creek populations began appearing in the Georgia Mountains and Upper Savannah River Basin . . . very likely to evade the worst effects of hurricanes.

The Napier Culture began developing from the Fall Line to the Blue Ridge Mountains in Georgia around 600 AD.  Its villages and towns were anywhere from 170 t0 300 miles from the Atlantic Coast.  Perhaps around 700 AD, the massive Kenimer Mound was constructed in the Nacoochee Valley of Northeast Georgia.  It was identical to the sculpted pentagonal mounds, built by the Kekchi Maya of Belize and Quintana Roo.   Repeated hurricane strikes on the coast of Belize and Quintana Roo may have spurred refugees to flee north out of range of direct hurricane strikes.

Ocmulgee Mounds was founded between around 800 AD and 900 AD by a people, who built supersized teepee shaped houses typical of the Tekesta in southeast Florida, the coastal peoples of Cuba and northern Colombia.  Intense hurricane activity in the Caribbean Basin may have also spurred them to move north and inland out of harm’s way.

Early and Middle Mississippian (Hierarchal) Periods  (900 AD-1375 AD)

The advanced peoples of Florida, Georgia and South Carolina clearly developed from cultural influences from the south, not the west so the label adopted by the archaeological profession nationally really does not apply here.  It is quite obvious that the peoples of the Lower Southeast began making major cultural advances at the same time that southern Mexico was in a state of cultural stagnation.

University of Massachusetts researchers have found evidence of many major hurricane strikes on the Atlantic Coast between around 1100 and 1400 AD.  One or more Category 5 or perhaps Category 6 hurricanes around 1150 AD devastated the Atlantic Coast. 

In addition, an asteroid, cluster of asteroid fragments or comet struck the North Atlantic Ocean in 1014 AD, causing at least 30,000 deaths in England alone and probably just as many on the coast of North America.   Stone engravings and Maya script at Chichen Itza describe a large object coming across the sky to the north.  It was assumed to be the Sky Serpent God.  This would explain the numerous stone serpents on the mountain tops of Georgia and perhaps the motivation for bands of Itza refugees to head north to the “Land of the Sky Serpent.”  

There was another peak of major hurricane activity around 1200 AD.  Geologists have identified the effects of massive floods on Georgia’s inland rivers about this time.  Until the hurricane research by climatologists, the geologists could not figure out what type of weather event would create something approaching “Noah’s Flood.”

The floods caused stark changes in the locations of several rivers. The Etowah River changed path and cut right through the heart of the town, cutting a vast gash through the landscape. A later of mud was deposited on top of the entire town.  

The Ocmulgee River also deposited a layer of mud on Ichesi (Lamar Village) plus turned its horseshoe bend into an island.  This weather event is what made archaeologists in the 1930s think that the Lamar Village was founded “200 years after the abandonment of Ocmulgee Mounds.”  The archaeologists stopped digging, when they ran into a layer of mud not containing artifacts.

In 1257 AD the Samalas Supervolcano exploded with 13 times the volume of pollutants, produced by Mount Saint Helens.  This initiated the Little Ice Age.  The first effect in Northwestern Europe was not especially cold weather, but endless rains, which flooded the fields.  It is probable that heavy rainfall also fell on eastern North America . . . but not western North America.  See the POOF article:  Super Volcano
Cultural History: Around 900 AD three culturally advanced provinces in southern Florida apparently merged together and formed a single state in which the two on the Atlantic and Gulf Coasts began making pottery like those of the province near Lake Okeechobee.  Canals and raised causeways were constructed to interconnect the many towns and villages of this state.

Also around 900 AD, more newcomers arrived at Waka (Ocmulgee Mounds).  They started construction of a square, truncated pyramidal mound, typical of Mesoamerica. 

During the 990s AD, a people with different cultural traits that the people living on the acropolis at Ocmulgee, established  the village of Ichesi on a horseshoe bend in the Ocmulgee River, two miles south of the acropolis (Lamar Site) and the town of Etula at a horseshoe bend on the Etowah River (Etowah Mounds).

The only agricultural terrace to be radiocarbon dated at Track Rock Gap came in at 1018 AD.  This was four years after the tsunami

Around 1150 AD, both the towns of the Lake Ocheechobee Region and the acropolis at Ocmulgee were abandoned.  We finally know what happened.  One or more incredibly powerful hurricanes devastated the Lower Southeast.

Around 1200 AD, Etula (Etowah Mounds) was abandoned. Archaeologists do not know why.  Geologists do.  An incredibly destructive flood cut through the town.  Now the geologists know what caused the flood.

Also, around 1200 AD, a flood severely damaged Ichesi.  We now know that probably the same hurricane, which hit Etula, also devastated Ichesi.

In 2017, archaeologists learned that it was not drought that drove the population out of Cahokia, but floods.  Many an anthropological book has been written that assumed droughts caused a failure of crops then starvation and then famine.  Au contraire, it was devastating floods that depopulated the Middle Mississippi River Basin.  Perhaps they did result in plagues though.

It is ironic, and probably significant that while the eastern half of the North American Sunbelt was inundated by violent floods, the Southwest Desert Plateau was fried by one of the worst droughts in the region’s history . . . causing Chaco Canyon to be completely abandoned. 

The frequency of major hurricanes dropped precipitously between 1200 AD and 1375 AD.  This was the Golden Times of Etula (Etowah Mounds), Ichesi and many other towns in North Georgia, but was when Cahokia in southern Illinois and Moundville in northwestern Alabama lost most or all of their populations.  Clearly, the cooling of the Atlantic Ocean and the stark reduction of hurricanes on the Atlantic Ocean were good for Georgia, but bad for peoples living in the Mississippi River Basin, northwestern Alabama and western Tennessee.

In 1540, towns in the Southern Appalachians were thriving despite the heavy winter snowfalls. 
Apparently, their summers were ideal.
Late Mississippian Period  (1375 AD – 1600 AD)

Note both the stark drop in hurricanes and the commensurate drop in the water temperature of the Atlantic Ocean on the charts. This is the Little Ice Age.  It was initially a time of endless rains, but by 1375 AD had become a time of short growing seasons and bitter cold winter weather, but somewhat fewer major hurricanes than today.  The Southern Appalachian Mountains became known as the Snowy Mountains.  During the winter moist air from the Gulf of Mexico was constant pumped up into the sub-freezing air of the Blue Ridge Mountain escarpment.  The result was annual snowfalls equivalent to what one sees now near Buffalo, NY and northern West Virginia.

Forensic botanists have examined tree rings for the 1300s and 1400s in the Southern Appalachians and Upper Tennessee River Valley.  They have determined that around  1350 AD – 1375 AD the climate was extremely dry and cold, after exceptionally heavy rainfall in the previous century.  This drought coincides with the 25-35 year long abandonment of the large town of Etula (Etowah Mounds) and the relegation of Moundville from being a large town to being only a ceremonial center.  Yet at the same time, the Province of Kaushe (Kusa~Coosa) was thriving about 32 miles north of Etula.  It could be that the people of Kaushe had superior agricultural skills.   

Cultural history:   

After the shock of a period of cold dry weather, apparently the climate was ideal in eastern Tennessee, western North Carolina, Alabama, Georgia, the Florida Panhandle and South Carolina for the large scale cultivation of corn, beans, squash, pumpkin, sunflowers and chia (salvia grain).  Chiaha’s location on the Little Tennessee, Oconaluftee and Nantahala Rivers, would have been subject to massive snow melt water in the spring.  This apparently was an ideal situation for chia.

The chronicles of the De Soto Expedition mentioned that there were fields of salvia (Chia) along the rivers of the province of Chiaha.   Chiaha means “Salvia River” in Itza Maya and Itsate Creek.  It is not an ancient Cherokee word, whose meaning has been lost.   Chiapas, the homeland of the Itza Maya, means Place of the Chia (Salvia).

De Soto’s entrada entered Florida near Bradenton on the Gulf Coast. There is no mention of either natural disasters or plagues as it passed through what is now the Florida Panhandle.  In fact, the towns along the Ocmulgee and Oconee River seemed to be prospering and well fed. In southern South Carolina he passed though a region, later known as the Salud

However, when Hernando de Soto’s Expedition passed through the South Carolina in the spring of 1540, there had been a plague in the town of Kofitache-ki (Spanish ~ Cofitachequi = “Descendants of Mixed Ethnic Groups-People” in Creek).  Kofitache-ki was described as being two days from the ocean.  Perhaps a European disease had been left behind by a passing ship, which stopped to gather provisions.

When De Soto passed through what is now North Carolina, eastern Tennessee, northwest Georgia and Alabama, there seemed to be plenty of food.  There were several days of heavy rain and a flood on the Etowah River in August 1540.  This was probably the remnants of a hurricane, but apparently it did no serious damage to the town where he was staying.

Such an ideal environment certain not be applied to Alabama, 20 years later when a foraging party for the Cristin de Luna Expedition crossed the length of Alabama in search of food for its starving colonists.  The countryside was described as being almost depopulated and bereft of stored food.  Surviving locals blamed the deaths caused by the De Soto Expedition for this holocaust.  They killed most of the warriors and left behind a legion of European pathogens.   This was not the diabolical work of a hurricane.
