Its so exciting that so much is undiscovered but IS being found slowly bit by bit. So much we don't know but are waiting in time to find out Smile

This sculpture is by Marco d’Agrate, 1562 (Duomo cathedral, Milan-Italy)
This is a sculpture of St. Bartholomew who was an Apostle that was said to be skinned alive. If you look closely you will notice that his robe is actually not a robe at all, but his skin. "



This is what someone wrote about this...……………

"HE was flayed alive—the skin of his body cut into strips, then pulled off, leaving his body open and bleeding for a long time, then beheaded, wrote Fr. Paolo O. Pirlo, SHML, in My First Book of Saints.

Why? Because he was to die the Persian way in the “most barbarous country of the East” in the ancient times; because he converted Polymius, the king of Armenia, to Christianity; because Astyages, the king’s brother, ordered his death; because spreading the Catholic faith is a great crime, noted John Francis Fenion in Saint Bartholomew, Volume 2 of Catholic Encyclopedia."

Amazing 110 years old library in Porto, Portugal that it inspired J.K. Rowling for the Hogwarts library in Harry Potter! ( something else she couldn't think of on her own )

Apparently this was built without any nails, just good carpentry. 300 years old wooden cathedral on Kizhi Island Russia.

This reminds me of the movie The Thing. Looks like they have found something frozen in the ice.

{{ Intriguing indeed. I am inclined to think the red tainting in the snow is some chemical or other, anti-freeze perhaps. It definitely appears to be some excavation that's gone on large enough to warrant buildings and an airstrip being built. But unless some independent reporter goes to find out it frankly could be anything from an old secret Nazi base (they were down there) to some sort of top secret mining operation, uranium or some such, or an array of some kind or wort case a cashed UFO with the Thing on it!  }}

This guy doesn't sound like an idiot, he's just very interested as am I really. As time goes by & the weather/climate alters, weird & fascinating stuff is uncovered & I love it, its great Smile from baby mammoths to Nazi experimentation. The Earth will give up these secrets & mysteries

That's some cool stuff, but do hunter-gatherers qualify as civilization?
