    I really dont like how they digitally added in the pattern on the door looking thing in the snow in the antarctic. Dont ever tamper with evidence you are trying to show us, because it helps prove your case for you. You could have digitally made that hangar looking door slide close as it really looks with the 100% smooth greyish surface, not one with computer generated door groves in it. Most people wont notice what you guys did there, and think the "door" really had those designs in them, when in fact it doesnt. That is the very definition of deception. If you really look at the picture you can clearly see this is a natural structure, and it is not a door, or hangar. The "Door" would be sitting at the wrong angle for it to close properly or function at all. Really study the close up picture, the shadows cast, and the placement of the object. It would make 0% sense to place a "door" in the direction it is in. Now I do believe the Germans may have built a base there when they were there, but I doubt this is an opening to a base.

    Search the surrounding area. This is part of a military target range, including mock airfields, that have been well pummeled with ordinance. A likely explanation is that the pattern is a simulated city target for terminal optical guidance ballistic missiles, something the Chinese are likely to be developing in conjunction with their program to deploy ballistic missiles to be used against US carriers.

      "However, gas molecules are not point masses, and there are many cases gases need to be treated as non-ideal. Johannes D. van der Waals suggested a modification to take into account molecular size and molecular interaction forces. It is usually referred to as the van der Waals equation of state:"

      Or simply an ice shelf left from a glacial melt. That would also explain its dirty gray color and themally warped shape, probably perfectly explainable in that cave, valley or depression that is circular. How hard can it be to fly a copter over, or a low weather plane to observe close enough to photograph clearly? Sheesh.

    um... those clouds did not have straight lines. on one you could clearly see blue outside the red drawn lines. before they drew the red lines they looked circular.

    After World War II, the United States and the Soviet Union we're bitter enemies. They both put bases in Antarctica. China and the United States are enemies at that time. They to have bases in Antarctica. There's something down there. I suspect it is not military in nature. It is surrounded by military, guarded by military and you will be shot if you approach. I believe it is the Watchers. Satan himself. The seven churches of Smyrna. 7 Watchers to watch over us to ensure that we are doing what we are supposed to do. Dig for gold. I do not believe that the Gods use gold for currency. I believe that they use it for something else.

    Definitely need to look into Symbols Of An Alien Sky - The Lightning Scarred Planet...the eggs and fissures and dendritic formations look like plasma / electrical arcing. Like the Martian blueberries and plasma spheres. Kevin Evans might find his explanation after all. They aren't volcanoes. They are in a line because that's how the currents ran. tvclip.biz/video/tRV1e5_tB6Y/video.html

    Just one question about that door easy to talk about it but you have to ask the question where did that door come from was it made there no industry to support that or maybe in Germany but then wouldnt there be some kind of written report of a huge door being made in Nazi Germany i think the Brit's would be on that with there spy network doring the war may be a photoshop would best explain that door

    • Michael Mills

      The Earth is flat. If it were spherical then why does the horizon stay at eye level no matter how high you go up towards "space". How come all ancient cultures and civilizations knew about the flat earth before the spherical model was populated by ELITIST and those in power. If the Suns gravity is strong enough to cause ALL celestial bodies in our solar system to orbit it the how come Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars haven't been consumed by it in the Billions of years its said to have existed. According to the science most of our Planets should have already been destroyed

    did anybody catch the 1994 challenger taking footage in the middle east when it had exploded in 1986?

    • Michael Mills
      Michael Mills 9 days ago

      According to different sources it exploded in 1981 (watched a documentary that mentioned that) and yet ANOTHER documentary commented that it exploded in 1984. I was born in 1985 and maybe this is just the Mandela Effect Mandelaing my ass but I'm pretty sure i remember watching the launch take place live when it exploded....after 1985-86.

    Looks like Australian lights are near mountains? Is it possible the sunlight reflecting off mountain tops? It was said this map was a collaboration of pictures. My guess, taken over time, and at different times of the night just before dawn?
