Ancient Stone Carvings Confirm Comet Struck Earth in 10950BC
For years, researchers had suspected that an unexplained reduction in global temperatures during a period known as the Younger Dryas could have been caused by a comet impact – an event that was thought to have wiped out the woolly mammoth while also sparking the beginnings of civilization.
Now a team of experts at the University of Edinburgh believe that they may have found early documented evidence of this event in the form of symbols engraved on ancient stone pillars at Gobekli Tepe – a site in southern Turkey with important historical significance.
Using a computer programme to map how the constellations would have appeared over Turkey at the time the carvings were made, the researchers discovered that the symbols seemed to confirm that a swarm of comet fragments had hit the Earth at the same time the temperature dropped.
“I think this research, along with the recent finding of a widespread platinum anomaly across the North American continent virtually seal the case in favour of (a Younger Dryas comet impact),” said study leader Dr Martin Sweatman. “It appears Gobekli Tepe was, among other things, an observatory for monitoring the night sky.”

Discovery Of 14,000-Year-Old Settlement In Canada Could Rewrite North American History
The ancient stories of the indigenous Heiltsuk Nation people say that their ancestors sheltered on a mysterious strip of coastline in Canada during the last Ice Age. Thanks to a recent discovery of a 14,000-year-old settlement, science is now reaffirming those claims.
The discovery was made last year along the Central Coast of British Columbia on Triquet Island. Teams of archaeologists from the Hakai Institute, University of Victoria, and local First Nations found the remains of charcoal, tools, fish hooks, spears used to hunt marine mammals, and even a hand drill used for lighting fires.
Based on the analysis of charcoal found, it’s estimated the settlement was established around 13,613 to 14,086 years ago. This makes it one of the oldest human settlements in North America. It also means it’s twice as old as the invention of the wheel, three times older than the Pyramids of Giza, and thousands of years before all of the ice age megafauna went extinct.
Archeologist Alisha Gauvreau, a PhD student from the University of Victoria and a scholar with the Hakai Institute, will be presenting her team’s findings at the Society for American Archeology conference in Vancouver this week.

Murder, Sex and Obsession: Retracing the Footsteps of a Yeti Hunter
Renowned Spanish zoologist Jordi Magraner, one morning in August 2002, was found with his throat cut in Pakistan’s Chitral region, where he’d lived for 15 years. Magraner had been searching for the mythical barmanu – as locals call the yeti. The morning after his death, the newspaper headlines all said the same thing: “Yeti hunter found murdered.”
Seven years later, no one had been convicted for his killing – nor has anyone since – and rumours still swirled around the 44-year-old Spaniard’s slaying, with some newspapers hinting at the involvement of secret government agents, others that it was a crime of passion. Even the few reported facts of his life seemed to have mythical dimensions; revered by the Kalash, an ancient pagan people of the Hindu Kush who had buried his body with honour, Magraner had also been involved in humanitarian convoys in Afghanistan as well as with Alliance Française in Peshawar.
There were also suggestions he had had dealings with Ahmad Shah Massoud, the region’s legendary anti-Taliban resistance leader. But to one man, unravelling the mystery and, indeed, the marvels of the zoologist’s life and death would prove as dangerous as it was irresistible. It would mean retracing the footsteps of the yeti hunter into Pakistan’s northern valleys – the region that, in 2009, was the operational base of al-Qaeda.
Coast to Coast AM with George Noory
Monday: North Korea & the Killshot/ Exploring the Universe
Major Ed Dames has spent the last year away from the public to conduct top secret Remote Viewing research into alarming new developments within the North Korean nuclear weapons program, ET technologies and geopolitical developments. In the first half, Dames described his belief that various governments are conducting final preparations for the “Killshot,” including the launch of new solar flare warning systems by NASA. The term, which Dames says he coined many years ago, refers to “a series of very strong flares that take down power grids” and which Dames predicts will leave much of the world without electric power for weeks to months. This will cause much of the population to perish from starvation and contaminated water. In the second half, Professor of Particle Physics at the University of Manchester (UK), Brian Cox discussed some of the most fundamental questions about reality and the universe.
Tuesday: Rockets, Energy, & the Hollow Moon
David Adair, an internationally recognized expert in space technology applications and more recently, fusion containment, discussed his current and past work, as well as hollow moon theories and facts. Open Lines followed.
Wednesday: US-Russia Relations/ Regenerative Medicine
In the first half, Stephen F. Cohen, a Professor of Russian Studies and History Emeritus at NYU, offered analysis of the currently volatile state of US-Russia relations, the accusations that President Trump and/or associates colluded with the Russians on the election, and the implications of the recent US attack on Syria. In the latter half, Tufts University Professor Sheldon Krimsky discussed the emerging field of regenerative medicine and how in the future, damaged tissue and organs might be repaired through personalized stem cell therapy as easily as the body repairs itself, revolutionizing the treatment of numerous diseases.
Thursday: Climate Change & Environment/ America’s Stonehenge
Since getting his Ph.D. in 1976, Peter Ward has published more than 140 scientific papers, and numerous books dealing with paleontological, zoological, and astronomical topics. During the first half, he discussed the state of the planet including the demise of the Great Barrier Reef, melting ice caps, and recent discoveries in the Mariana Trench, and Antarctica. In the latter half, former airline pilot Dennis Stone, detailed the mystery of America’s Stonehenge, odd stone ruins in Southern New Hampshire, on the 110-acre plot of land his father, Robert Stone, bought back in the 1950s.
Friday: Deception & Lies
Retired US Marshal with 26 years of federal law enforcement experience, Mark McClish is a specialist in the interview process and gives presentations on ‘statement analysis’ throughout the US.

Expanded Perspectives: Up in Smoke
On this episode of Expanded Perspectives the guys start the show off talking about how traditional 9am lectures should be scrapped and students should be allowed to start their day later, experts have claimed, following new research that suggests early mornings interfere with young adults’ body clocks. According to researchers at The Open University, lectures should start no earlier than 11am for students to be able to perform at their best. Working with researchers at the University of Nevada, experts analysed the study patterns of 200 students and found academic performance was at its best between 11am and 9.30pm. Then, a woman called into Coast to Coast recently a told a fantastic story her father told her about a strange possible Men In Black experience he had one time back in 1954 while out camping.
Then, Lon Strickler over at Phantoms and Monsters posted an interesting story collected by Albert Rosales about a Black Eyed Being that followed them home. Then, an 8-year-old Ohio boy wanted a cheeseburger and he wanted it bad. So, he got behind the wheel of his dad’s van and took matters into his own hands. One problem was he didn’t know how to drive, but it didn’t take him long to figure it out. The boy said it was simple: He just watched some YouTube videos on how to drive a car. Before long, they said he chauffeured his kid sister effortlessly to the McDonald’s half a mile from his East Palestine home while his parents were sleeping.
After the break Kyle brings up one of the most bizarre missing people cases in American history. The case simply known as the Sodder Family Murders. On Christmas Eve, 1945, the Sodder family home burned down. The cause was traced to defective wiring despite the fact that Christmas tree lights were still on after the fire started. The oldest two sons and daughter and the youngest daughter survived, but the five middle children were missing and no trace of their remains were found. Believing that the fire was a cover for the abduction of their children, George and Jennie Sodder spent a fortune on detectives to investigate. The case was never solved and to this day no one knows what happened to the missing children. Thanks for listening to Expanded Perspectives!

Astonishing Legends: The Sheriff and Outlaw Henry Plummer
Henry Plummer was like so many young men who ventured into the frontier of mid-nineteenth century America; full of a spirit of adventure and eager to make their fortunes in the gold fields of the Old West. Handsome, charismatic and ambitious, Plummer soon went from trying his hand at prospecting to a career in law enforcement and was even encouraged to enter California politics by his supporters. Plummer’s successes, however, were tainted by his foibles as it was noted that his evening activities sometimes put the wild in “Wild West.” A move to Bannack, Montana, and election as sheriff of the area promised to restore his career and reputation. This fresh start at the bottom of Plummer’s pan would prove to be just a flash, as the townsfolk would soon suspect his connection to the robberies and murders allegedly committed by a gang of Road Agents who came to be known as “The Innocents” and many speculated he might even have been the mastermind behind the purported crime wave. But was Plummer actually guilty, or just guilty by association and a victim of circumstance and mob mentality? Whatever the truth of the matter, Sheriff Henry Plummer eventually found himself at the end of his rope.
