We have all heard the story of the News Article that appeared in the Phoenix Gazette in 1909. Since this time academic authors have slothfully written to discredit the whole thing,
At this time I wish to point out, the article DID NOT say, Egyptians... it said Egyptian LIKE artifact and even mentions a figure resembling a Statue of Buddha holding a lily in each hand... does this sound Egyptian to you?
Whether there was actually a cave found or not is not the focus of this post, as I was reading one of the critics blogs, I am certain when he finished he was patting himself on the back thinking of what a good job he did writing his one sided report...
In the article he uses this very same book in which the story I give today comes from, as evidence not to support the suspect find in the Grand Canyon but uses it as evidence that the so called Reporter who wrote the Gazette article used the same source material to foment the story of the underground city purportedly found in 1909, the blog critic claims the reporter and author Alexander M'Allan used an earlier source which was published in 1875 written by Charles G Leland who although was a qualified author and translator of Chinese, was not a supporter of the whole concept of Chinese, or better said, Asians in America long before Columbus.
What the blog writer does not tell you, is that the former writer Leland in 1875, make no mention of a canyon which is found in the 24 Histories of China or otherwise known as Standard Histories (zhengshi 正史) and are the Chinese official historical books covering a period from 3000 BC to the Ming dynasty in the 17th century and is considered as the official history of
In fact the 1875 writer does not even quote from the history in which the
canyon is spoken of, he quotes from the Fusang covering a period as early as
200 BC, yet the author Mr. M'Allan not only quotes from the same book or period
of time in the Chinese History, but from the period covering and from 1100 BC! when the canyon was
So, If the Gazette purported ASIAN cave with what was describes as Egyptian LIKE artifacts was a hoax, the hoaxer certainly did not get the idea from either of the written works. The Blogger also make the same mention all the critics do, that Mr. KinKaid nor Mr. Jordan were ever a part of Smithsonian and no record of them has ever been found that they even existed.... My question is... why not? I found them, and both worked NOT FOR Smithsonian but definitely were associated and contributors...
When you research something, if all you want is to disprove, you will find exactly what you seek, even if it is a truth... and if you seek to prove a thing, it is all you will find, even if what you seek to prove is a fallacy. SEEK TRUTH with an agenda to prove or disprove in an effort to FIND THE TRUTH, no matter what that truth may be.
Enjoy the following, I wish I could read Chinese, as I would love to read the original text which has not been translated to my knowledge into English. The following will be given in two parts. The book is one of the books in the recent offer of 16 books I recently made.
MORE in PART 2 Coming soon....
