Have you ever wanted to know what mankindís civilizations looked like before the Great Flood? At last you can. Theyíre being uncovered right now in Turkey and other parts of Central Asia.
We humans have been wrongly conditioned to regard such countries as Sumeria, Greece, Egypt, and China as the parents of all human civilizations. But Archeologists in Turkey and Central Asia are now finding extensive ruins of ancient civilizations predating the Great Flood by ten thousand years and even more! We are even finding out, through digs in Iran and other places, that there was not one ìNoahís Ark,î but perhaps many more. Other ìNoahís Arksî are waiting to be discovered.

At one time, the Greeks and the Turks were the same people. But somewhere along the way, they came to a parting of the ways. Although they were siblings, each called the other a bastard. For millenniums, the Greeks have been able to keep the Turks swept under the rug, convincing the world that they are the parents of Western Civilization. But they can keep up the fraud no longer.
I recently wrote a historically knowledgeable Turkish woman, asking her whether she knew how such a monstrous, millenniums old fraud could have been perpetrated. She answered: "Regarding your questions about Greeks/Turks. I don't know the answer to that question. Zeus is a Turkish name. Greeksí fraud is not a secret anymore, and many researchers are now understanding that many things considered as Greek were coming from pre-Hellenistic non-Greek civilizations, such as Egypt, the Hittites, and Turks -- this is s very controversial piece of study. In fact, Professor Manfred Korfmann, the person who was heading the Troy excavations in Turkey, was once bullied in a conference somewhere in Europe for saying that Troy and other important Anatolian civilizations were not Greek at all. He said that Anatolia became Greek land at a very recent time. Until then it was home to other very important civilizations. Unfortunately Mr. Korfmann died a few years ago. Thank God he had the time to begin this important discussion in the academic world. our founder Ataturk said, "Anatolia has been Turkish land for 7,000 years." After winning in Galipoli against the British, he said that he had "avenged the Trojans." You may think that this is just politics, but the petroglyphs are there for all of us to verify.
Flavius Josephus, in his book about the history of the Jews, did not want the Septaguint translated into Greek. He said that as a result, the Greeks would then insist that Judaism was a Greek invention.
It is a historical fact that the Turkish nations were the first to accept Christianity. The reason why they converted so easily has been kept from us. Roman emperor Constantine I, who was really a Greek, did not want us to know why the Turks accepted Christianity almost unquestioningly. Therefore, through his influence, we have been denied one of the most amazing truths in all the history of mankind! I myself did not find this out until recently, a few months after I published my most recent book, What Strange Mystery, etal.
As I have stated, the real parents of all human civilizations and the forerunners of all sciences, were the ancient Turkish peoples who extended all the way from Siberia to what is now modern Turkey. We know them as Aryans (Ari), Kurus, Turanians, Tulanians, Dannu or Tannu (Tribes of Dan), and other similar names. They were also called Pancha Krishtayas (The Five Races of mankind).
According to the ancient legends of the world, the North Pole was not the barren wasteland of ice and snow that it is now. The weather there was always mild and inviting. Food was always in plentiful supply. The Hyperboreans possessed scientific technologies so simple to learn and apply that even children could master them. . Because the oxygen levels there were much higher than now, they could live for up to a thousand years and stay free from all sicknesses. The only way they could die was by committing suicide.
They harnessed the power of the sun, which they worshipped as Almighty God, symbolized as a two-headed eagle called Krishta (Christ) and a cross (Krsti). Besides calling their religion after themselves, Krishtaya, they also called it Kristihan, meaning ìConqueror.î (See the online Sanskrit Lexicon) It may surprise Christians to know that their religion preceded all other existing religions. But this truth is not the only one now forcing us to rewrite ancient human history.
Doctor of Philosophy Valery Dyemin, a Russian researcher of the Arctic region, maintains that Hyperborea ("beyond the Boreas (north wind)"), a mythical land that the Greeks thought was located beyond Scythia, existed in reality.
Dr. Dyemin said, "I believe we should be looking for the traces of that civilization in Eurasia and American arctic regions, in the islands and archipelagos of the Arctic Oceans, at the bottom of some seas, lakes and rivers. Russia has the largest number of locations and artifacts that could bear relevance to Hyperborea. Some have already drawn attention of specialists; others are yet to be discovered. Active exploration is currently under way in the Kola Peninsula, in the Island of Vaigach, in Karelia, Ural Mountains, West Siberia, Khakasia, Yakutia, and a few other regions. There are good prospects for conducting research in Franz Josef Land, Taimyr, and Yamal.
ìThe geographic term "Hyperborean platform" is technical use. Scientists keep discussing the platformís dynamics in order to find out the reasons why it sank to the bottom of the ocean.
"In other words, Hyperborea may have stretched over the lands that eventually sank into the water?"
ìOne of the charts by Gerhardus Mercator, the 16th century Flemish cartographer and geographer, shows a huge continent lying in the vicinity of the North Pole. The land is an archipelago composed of several islands divided by deep rivers. A mountain sits in the center of the land (according to legends, the ancestors of Indo-Europeans lived near Mount Meru). The question is: How did that land appear on the chart? There was no information whatsoever regarding the Arctic regions during the Middle Ages. We have some reasons to believe that Mercator had used an ancient chart, the one that is mentioned in his letter dated 1580. That chart showed a continent located in the center of the Arctic Ocean, which was pictured ice-free on the chart. Mercator's chart seems to be based on the ancient chart."

Our Bible calls this Hyperborean paradise Eden. But Eden is just the original word for the Russian and Siberian Steppes. Unfortunately, their earthly paradise was doomed to extinction. A huge cataclysm, perhaps a devastating meteorite crashing into the earth, caused this globe to change its orbital patterns. Hyperborea turned into an icy hell. The Hyperboreans then fled to what are now Turkey and the other central Asian republics. Legends have it that they were all united in a large Turkish confederation called Tannu Tuva (also Tewa and Tiwa). This word Tannu, also called in Sanskrit Danu, meant Victorious; Conqueror. They also called themselves Su-Tannu or S-Tannu, meaning The Superior Conquerors. In Turkish, SU also means soldier; warrior.
See the map of Tannu-Tuva below, before it was divided into many other nations. As you can see, it covered a wide area, including Afghanistan, Pakistan, Persia, Iraq, and other Central Asian nations.
Left: Fig. 4. Tannu-Tuva.
Their confederation finally fell apart. Perhaps this was the time when Greece decided to go its on way and turn its back on its Turkish brothers forever. We know them now as Tajikstan, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Kazakhstan, Kurustan (todayís Turkey), Kyrgizstan, Uzbekistan, and other nations whose names end in ìstan.î Donít forget: the ìstansî derive from ìsu-tannuî.
Later, a devastating flood in what is now called Altai made the area even more inhospitable. From there they spread deep into India, adding their genius to a highly developed civilization that was already there. Almost immediately after their movement into India, demographic interchanges between the two regions occurred rapidly. They merged their religious beliefs. As a result, many of the people we regard as Indian-subcontinent gods, such as Shiva, Indra, Kubera (our Heber) and others, were really of Siberian or Turkish origin.
They also founded the civilizations of Egypt, Sumeria, China and every other ancient civilization. They gave us a multitude of different alphabets and even our religions.
Directly and indirectly they were the fathers of the Incas, Aztecs, Mayans, and the builders of such high South American cities as Tihuanaco and Karal.

Even in India, the creative force of mankind and all civilizations is worshiped as the Mother Goddess. Her sacred abode is in the extreme polar regions or magnetic north.
The Koran tells us that Adam (the Turkic word for Mankind), after being cast out of Eden (the Siberian Steppes) flew to Ceylon or Serindip,î landing on what is now Adamís Peak. Serindip derives from the Sanskrit Ceren-dvipa. Evidently, the Adam cast out of Eden was not altogether primitive. It appears that he went to Ceylon on some kind of flying ship. From there, he traveled around the world. Finally, he returned to Central Asian, reuniting himself with Eve who had stayed behind in Jiddah, Arabia.
I mention the Hindu concept of the Mother Goddess coming from Hyperborea and Adamís journey to Ceren-Dwipa so that readers will not fall into the trap that such a glorious paradise also existed at the South Pole. Not one ancient myth mentions such a thing.
The creativity of the Mother Goddess went south as far as Ceylon. Human civilization then followed the sun, between the Tropics of Cancer and Capricon, around the entire world.

After the Great Flood in Altai, the survivors took refuge near a famous mountain called Mt. Meru and Si-Yoni (Zion). But troubles among the different tribes caused them to spread out to other nations on earth. Today, Hindus revere Mt. Kailasa in Western Tibet as Mt. Meru or Si-Yoni (the origin or source of mankind).
Fig. 8. Mt. Kailasa in Western Tibet.
Other authorities think the original Mt. Meru may be a mountain near Herat, Afghanistan, or even some mountain in Altai, Khaskassia, or Tannu-Tuva. Some of these tribes, such as the ones who came to settle in Palestine (Pala-stan) or todayís Israel, named two mountains near Jerusalem Zion and Moriah (Meru) in remembrance of their ancient homeland back in Central Asia. Over the millenniums they forgot all about their true origins, coming to regard Zion and Moriah as the ìsourceî of their spirituality and being. They are presently trying to kill each other, ignorant that their true source and traditions, even the exact names and records of their prophets, are in India and the Steppe lands of Central Asia.
Just as the forefathers of the Arabs and Israelis became convinced that Palestine and environs were the original Meru (Mt. Moriah) and Si-Yoni (Zion), so also did the Amerindians of both North and South America take their memories of the Altai Flood with them. They also came here with the idea that the Mother Goddess lay far to the north. Centuries later, the Aztecs came to think of Southwestern United States as the northern home of the Mother Goddess. As a result, many Mexican activists, having inherited that Mother Goddess myth from their Amerindian forefathers, are laying claim to the United States as their ìdivinely inheritedî homeland. Little do they know that the home of their ìMother Goddessî is at the North Pole. This is my advice to them: îBe selfish with your ignorance. Donít give it away.î
If what I say is true, how can we prove that all humans left Central Asia for other parts of the world? Why have we never found this out? I cannot answer those questions adequately, but the proofs of our origins are only too visible. Iím surprised that any of us would even have to ask-or doubt. For example, the ancestors of most Europeans originated in Colchis-Iberia, todayís Georgia, and Aeria which is now present-day Albania. Georgia has been a civilized nation for many millenniums. Its civilization was flourishing long before the Great Flood.. It even had an easy-to-learn script, supposedly used as far back as 300 B.C. The tablet in the illustration dates to 5 BC and is said to be Georgiaís first written book. Notice the Cross symbol on the center page.

When the Georgian Iberians (Celts, Goths, Visigoths, Ostragoths, Alans, Albanians, etc.) moved into Western Europe, they named their new home Iberia (todayís Spain), even giving the same name to Italy. From Iberia, they then migrated to England (Anguli), Scotland (Scotae or Scythia), a region of Ireland (Hibernia), etc.
Ancient England had several names, one of which is Albion, derived from ìAlbanî (ia). That other name of Albania, Aeria, became Ire-land. We also see the names of the Tannu-Tuva people in Europe, such as Denmark and Danube.
Even our American Indians are from what are now the greatly reduced nation of Tannu-Tuva, Altai, and Khakassia. Russian scientists have found that their DNA matches that of our American Indians. But do we really need DNA to prove THAT?
DECIDE FOR YOURSELF.
Compare the following Turkish habitations with their American counterparts. You ,may have observed that the Navajo hogans (yurts) arenít made of felt. Thatís because the original Navajo
settlers had no domesticated animals.
Figures 11, 12, 13.
Look at the following pictures of Tuva and Altai Shamans. Whom do they resemble?
Figures 14, 15, 16.
It is a curious anomaly that the Tannu-Tuvas, Tevas, and Tivas and the Southwestern Tanoan tribe and their villages of Tewa, Tiwa and Towa are so similar. Can that be just a coincidence?
Mexican idols holding up temple roofs were called Atlantes. Notice the Atlantes standing on the ruins of the main pyramid of Tula, Hidalgo. Some people say they represent aliens from Outer Space. If this is so, why are they dressed like Shamans from the Siberian Russian province of Tula?
Why have we humans waited so long to recognize the truth of the evidence before our eyes? Is it some phenomenon of Nature, wanting to remove the cobwebs from our minds and force us to remember exactly who we are and where we come from? Is it making us evaluate what we have been doing to harm or help the world and our fellow humans? Should we improve ourselves or are we helpless to change the world for the better?
A famous New Mexico Membreno-Apache chieftain told me that we humans have now arrived at a divinely ordained and appointed moment of reflection, in which we must look back on our past. It is a pause before we get second wind and continue circumambulating throughout the universe . He said, ìThe past is now.î
Do we want that past-now to have -future appended to it? We must think seriously from now on. The last time, water enveloped the world. According to the prophecies, this time it could be turned into a whirling ball of fire!
