Gunung Padang is a megalithic site in Indonesia. 885 meters above sea level it's covered with massive rectangular stones of volcanic origin.
From Graham Hancock July 30th. 2013
The site, which Santha and I are now arranging to visit, was originally discovered in 1914, and has long been typecast by the mainstream as less than 5,000 years old -- a date that does not challenge the conventional paradigm. However, new research on the site by Dany Hilman, senior Geologist at Indonesia's Centre for Geotechnical Research, completely overturns this orthodox view. "It's older than 9,000 years," says Hilman "and could be up to 20,000". Naturally the mainstream is already fighting back and seeking to discredit Hilman and his team, but we have been seeing these sort of tactics since my friends John Anthony West and geologist Robert Schoch first questioned the orthodox dating of the Great Sphinx of Giza back in 1992. Little by little the evidence that discredits the mainstream timeline is piling up -- first the Sphinx, then the 12,000 year old megalithic site of Gobekli Tepe which I have already written about extensively here (e.g. http://goo.gl/iX4CMf) and spoken of in talks and interviews for the last couple of years, now Gunung Padang and all of this in context of a gigantic global cataclysm linked to a horrendous cometary bombardment of the earth between 13,000 and 12,000 years ago that honest scientists can no longer seriously deny. The policemen of the intellect who dominate mainstream archaeology and history may not be able to maintain their stranglehold on the past for very much longer. Here is the Gunung Padang story in the Sydney Morning Herald: http://www.smh.com.au/world/digging-for-the-truth-at-controversial-.... And here's the same story in the Melbourne Age: http://www.theage.com.au/world/digging-for-the-truth-at-controversi.... I've subsequently learned that the Herald and Age pieces were most likely sparked off by this earlier piece in the excellent Australian magazine New Dawn: http://www.newdawnmagazine.com/articles/mankinds-cradle-of-civilisa...
