Unearthing Ancient Civilizations
A.R.E. Houston Center
by Peggy Sue Skipper
If you read my last post, you know that I am a big fan of A.R.E.’s Houston Center which has become my spiritual home. Last year, I discovered the importance of ancient sites while writing a book with and for Dr. Sam Osmanagich, PhD. I realized that I wanted to be a part of bringing this incredible information to the world. One thing synchronistically led to another, and my business partner, Rita Mills and I were able to bring together three world renowned experts on pyramids and ancient archaeological sites for a one-day conference Unearthing Ancient Civilizations on Saturday, March 5, 2011 in Houston, TX. The conference, which supports A.R.E.’s Houston building project with a donation of a portion of the proceeds, includes presentations by Dr. Sam Osmanagich, Andrew Collins, and Christopher Dunn followed by a Q&A Panel discussion where they will debate their theories and what all of this new information means.
About 10 years ago I attended a family reunion and learned about ancestors I had never heard of before. I realized some of the things about me made more sense. There were several, “Ah-ha, so …that’s where I get it from!” moments during the weekend. In many ways I had felt alienated from the family I grew up around because I was so different. The discovery that I had so many relatives with the same talents and ambitions as me was in many ways life altering.
It has become clear to me that ancient sites are the key to discovering our heritage in much the same way. It is as if we, as a species, are gradually finding out we were adopted in a sense and that our lineage could be very different than what we have been told. There are so many unanswered questions about these ancient sites, and more are being discovered all the time. Who built them? Why were they built? When were they built? Science just hasn’t effectively answered these questions for some of us. For example, Machu Picchu is one of the most famous of ancient sites in the world and is located high in the mountains of Peru. Dr. Sam says that clearly there were four different civilizations involved with the site and the oldest was the most advanced! Now, how is that explained? An issue never clearly addressed by the scientific community. This is just one of the many reason more and more explorers and pioneers in this field are at odds with mainstream scientific thought.
At the Unearthing Ancient Civilizations Conference Dr. Sam will be speaking on his discovery of pyramids in his home country of Bosnia—the first pyramids to be discovered on the European continent. The largest pyramid in this complex is 30% larger than the largest pyramid on the Giza Plateau in Egypt. This discovery has been very controversial in the scientific community, and Dr. Sam has been vilified on one hand and praised on the other in archaeological circles. He has published nearly twenty titles to date with two new ones coming out just prior to the conference. Ancient History Behind the Veil bridges the gap between science and spirituality, and Pyramids Around the World contains the scientific data he has accumulated throughout his career studying pyramids.

Chris Dunn began his pyramid odyssey in 1977 after he read Peter Tompkins' book, Secrets of the Great Pyramid. His immediate reaction after learning of the Great Pyramid's precision and design characteristics was to consider this edifice may have had an original purpose that differed from conventional opinion. Chris concluded that it must have originally been built to provide a highly technical society with energy. Following the 1998 publication of The Giza Power Plant he has published many books and papers with his latest in 2010, Lost Technologies of Ancient Egypt, and his work is referenced in over a dozen books on Egypt. In the United States he has appeared on PAX Television, the Travel Channel, Discovery Channel, The Learning Channel, Lifetime Television and the History Channel in the Ancient Alien episode “The Evidence.” To learn more, visit GizaPower.com.
Andrew Collins will be joining us from the UK, and then flying to South Africa to present at the annual Megalithamania Conference—just one more piece of evidence to substantiate the huge interest in ancient sites. Andrew is a science and history writer, and the author of various books that challenge the way we perceive the past. They include From the Ashes of Angels (1996), which theorizes that the Watchers of the book of Enoch were shamans responsible for the Neolithic revolution, and that their homeland—the biblical Eden—was southeast Turkey, where archaeologists have recently found the oldest stone temple in the world. Gods of Eden (1998) says that Egyptian civilization is thousands of years older than is conventionally believed. Gateway to Atlantis (2000) tries to prove Plato’s Atlantis was located in Cuba and the Bahamas, and The Cygnus Mystery (2006) argues that veneration of the Cygnus constellation was responsible for the world’s earliest sky religions. His most recent book, Beneath the Pyramids, explores Giza’s cave underworld, rediscovered by the author in 2008. Andrew, born in 1957, lives with his wife Sue near Marlborough, Wiltshire.

We believe that people are ready to hear what these ancient sites have to tell us about our collective past. Perhaps we can find a better future if we understand our true history and know our past better. The content of this conference is a first for Houston and we know there is a large community interested in the information.
We also have 50 tickets to the conference that have been donated to college students and professors. There will be a drawing on Feb 20, 2011 for the winning tickets and interested parties should send an email with their name, contact information and school affiliation to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
For more information on the drawing and the conference please visit the website at: www.UACConference.com. I hope to see you there!
