We, our fathers, and our forefathers have been told that Sumer, which is located in southern Mesopotamia (currently known as Iraq) is the site of the first known civilization on Earth. According to history books, it came to light approximately 6,000 years ago.
But a giant stone city, which is mostly buried under the sand in an area 150 km west of port Maputo, Mozambique in South Africa has been unearthed. Based on the calculations made using the dolerite erosion rate, it is probably between 160,000 and 200,000 years old. This makes it by far, older than the Sumerian civilization.
Huge stone circles comprise the ruins.
And these can be clearly seen from above or via satellite imagery.
The site is believed to be a portion of an even larger structure (approx. 10,000 sq.km)
It is also assumed that this ancient city was highly advanced due to the organized structure of the community, the terraced agriculture, and the roads that were made to connect the said structures. There were several gold mines found in the area, which suggested that the people who inhabited this lost city practiced gold mining.
Local residents have encountered these magnificent stone circles countless of times before.
But amazingly, no one has given much attention about the origins of this ancient metropolis.
In 2007, Michael Tellinger, Johan Heine, and a team of leading scientists decided to explore the site, Tellinger is a researcher and writer who is highly interested in human origins while Heine is a local pilot and a fireman.

Based on the evidences they obtained Tellinger said, “The photographs, artifacts and evidence we accumulated, point towards a lost civilization that has never before been and precedes all others – not for a few hundred years, or a few thousand years … but many thousands of years”.
Carved on the rocks of the ruins are images of the Egyptian Ankh, which was why Tellinger assumed that this African metropolis may be the oldest structure built by humans and that the Sumerians and Egyptians probably inherited their knowledge from this civilization. After all, it is quite impossible for the images of those gods to appear thousands of years before the Egyptian civilization supposedly emerged. The first Sphinx, a carving of the Horus bird, and an accurate stone calendar known as Adam’s calendar can be seen in these ruins.

“These discoveries are so staggering that they will not be easily digested by the mainstream historical and archeological fraternity, as we have already experienced. It will require a complete paradigm shift in how we view our human history,” Tellinger said.
The results of Tellinger and Heine’s research inspired the former to write a book entitled, Temples of the African Gods.
Further studies may be required to learn more about this lost civilization. More questions may emerge as other researchers dig deeper to find answers. Could this lost African metropolis be the first civilization on Earth? Should our history be rewritten now? What do you think? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
The True-to-Life Exorcism Story That Scared Millions of People Worldwide!
“The Exorcism of Emily Rose” was adapted from Anneliese Michel’s real-life case of demonic possession.
Some movie buffs who enjoyed shrieking to "The Exorcism of Emilie Rose" are probably unaware that the 2005 horror film was actually inspired by the real-life demonic possession of a German girl named Anneliese Michel.
Anneliese, who underwent clandestine Catholic exorcism rites in 1975, died a year after due to severe dehydration and starvation. At that time, it was Germany's first official and public case of exorcism in about 50 years, and the only known case to have actual audio recordings.
Warning: This article contains the real pictures and actual audio recording taken during Anneliese's exorcism. These may be too frightening and disturbing for some readers....

The lion will always be the king of the jungle and anyone who shall walk his path should bow before him. This was the conventional protocol but these herd of buffalos obviously begged to disagree.

Mom Was Filming Her Child, Then This Creepy Creature Suddenly Appears!
She decided to film her child when the kid started acting strange. Then she saw this!
Nothing seems impossible in this day and age anymore. There are several bizarre occurrences that have caused pandemonium over the internet only to be debunked by experts who say it's nothing more than great visual effects. UFOs; creepy, mythical creatures; vicious monsters in the jungle--who can blame others for dismissing the fact that these could be real? There are numerous apps that can help us create these things even by just using our phones, right?
But whether the creature in the video below is real or not, one thing I can say for sure is that it's really creepy!
The video was recorded last January 2011 by a woman named Silvia. She lives in Santa Fe, Argentina with her family. Apparently, they have been noticing some strange behaviors from then 2-year-old Benjamin, Silvia's son. The little boy seemed to have been talking and playing with someone...or something in his room and in several corners of their house. However, thinking that it was just normal for kids his age to display such behaviors, they dismissed it. But on that particular day, the kid seemed a bit nervous. To better understand why the boy was acting strange, she decided to film the kid using her cell phone's camera, and wait and see if something would eventually turn up....
