elcome to Mysterious World®, your online guide to exotic travel destinations around the world! Mysterious World is a quarterly online journal dedicated to exploring ancient and exotic locales around the world, providing you with the information you need to truly appreciate what they have to offer.

Starting off our Winter, 2003 issue of Mysterious World, we have new press releases from SpiceRoads and The Esoteric World News.

In this quarter's book review section, we will look at Sir Laurence Gardner's Genesis of the Grail Kings. One of Gardner's loosely related books on ancient mysteries, bible "secrets" and surreptitious occult societies that have lurked behind the scenes thoughout world history, Genesis of the Grail Kings seeks to understand the true history of humanity as one that has been manipulated from the beginning, and man not as a natural evolution from the ape, but as a creation by a higher order of being. However, in Gardner's view, this higher order of being was not in fact the God of the Bible, but a mysterious race of beings called the "Annunaki" who came down from heaven in ancient times. We will review Gardner's thesis in light of our discoveries in Mysterious World, and see if it meets the challenge of superior scholarship. (Click here for more....)


This quarter's Fragments section first takes a look at a mysterious ancient map, which some believe indicates that the Americas may have first been discovered by the Chinese. Our second fragment discusses the startling discovery of an ancient Egyptian glyph depicting what many have dubbed "Pharaoh's Helicopter". Our third fragment discusses recent research into the massive pyramids of Teotihucan, where advanced scientific equipment is being used to search for ancient burial chambers within the pyramid of the Sun, and our fourth fragment, Mayan Mysteries, reviews recent discoveries of ancient Mayan artifacts that reveal a culture that was also well ahead of its time.


The Grand Canyon. is world renowned as being the great American outdoor tourism destination. Even today, its remote location in the heart of America's desert southwest keeps it relatively isolated from the creeping scrum of packed cities and choking smog. And even after a century of tourism, the pristine beauty of this uncorrupted desert oasis yet remains to entice the world-weary traveler to seek contemplation away from the madding crowd.

Our second feature article this quarter is our third in a four part series on giants, entitled "Giants in the Earth". After the drowning of Atlantis and the antediluvian world, there was a dark and unknown period in our ancient history, during which time the sons of Noah had spread across and repopulated the face of the Earth. The giants of the antediluvian world had been defeated but not destroyed forever as their fathers, the fallen angels, are spirits that cannot be destroyed. Thus, near the end of this ancient dark age, which lasted from approximately 10,000-4000 b.c., the mystery of iniquity began its horrid work upon the Earth once more as the fallen angels began once again to recreate the antediluvian race of giants. Just as they had done in the world before the Flood, the fallen angels were attempting once again to undermine God's will for mankind by destroying homo sapiens man, replacing him with a "superior" form of man the giant homo artificialis.

In our third feature article this quarter, we will continue our search for the ancient empire of Osiria, and the 14 lost pieces of Osiris believed by some to be scattered throughout that now largely submerged land. In Part III of "Ah, Osiria!", we will begin our search for "Nimrod, a mighty hunter before the LORD." Few words in the Bible have excited so much interest or speculation as the brief passage in the Table of Nations of Genesis 10 that describes a mysterious character known only as "Nimrod". Many have speculated on the true identity of this king, trying to match him up with numerous Assyrian, Babylonian, and even Egyptian kings. To this date, however, his true identity remains a mystery.
