Other anomalous finds from Peru add fuel to this celestial fire. Kathy Doore is a researcher who has travelled to Peru many times in connection with the Ica Stones, and runs the website Labyrinthina.com (2). Some time ago she sent me some images of an example of an Ica Stone that appeared to show anomalous celestial phenomena that could well be related to a previous appearance of Nibiru. If these carved river stones are authentic in displaying the artwork of an ancient people inhabiting the lands of Peru, then this is certainly strong evidence. But I was cautious initially, because other Ica Stones (and there are literally tens of thousands of them) show dinosaurs and such like. It all seemed a little far-fetched.
This image shows an Andean silver headdress said to depict a 'warrior flanked by two dragons' (5). Note the 7 discs creating a necklace around the warrior's neck (the one to the far right is damaged). If one takes the dragons to be fiery wings flanking a central disc (and the warrior's face is clearly spherical) then we can see the classic Winged Disc imagery emerge here.
This is Dark Star symbolism, made all the more poignant by the inclusion of the seven discs; showing the seven orbiting moons, two of which are major, five minor. The two major moon discs correspond to the uraei of the Egyptian Winged Discs.
The primary investigator of the Ica Stones was the late Dr Javier Cabrera. He set about trying to collect, catalogue and analyse patterns among the Stones, obtaining them for practically nothing from Peruvians who claimed that they had excavated them. Archaeological digs must be permitted officially in Peru, and this led to certain problems of authenticating the finds when the Peruvian media became involved: some of the people who were original sources of the Ica Stones changed their stories when pressed by the authorities and claimed to have created the tens of thousands of stones over the course of several years.
The matter of the Ica Stones had already been dismissed by academic archaeologists in general, and now was firmly debunked by the media. Despite this, there remains a fascination for them. This is probably because the accusation of ‘fraud’ flies in the face of common sense. There are up to 50,000 of these stones in private collections around the globe; the process of creating them would have amounted to an industrial scale output. Yet they have always been worth next to nothing individually, and for many years languished in rubbish piles in the Ica museum. Furthermore, there was scientific evidence to suggest that the engravings were indeed old, and certainly not contemporary, as the frustrated Dr Cabrera explained:
“On January 28, 1969 I received word from Eric Wolf that the results of the laboratory analysis conducted by a Professor Frenchen and his assistants at the University of Bonn were available. The stones were andesite and were covered by a patina or film of natural oxidation which also covered the etchings, permitting one to deduce that they are very old.
“In view of the fact that the patina of oxidation that covered the stones proved the general but not precise antiquity of the engravings, and in view of the fact that precision could only be had by using the comparative methods of stratigraphy and paleontology, I requested authorization in April 1970 from the Patronato Nacionial de Arqueologia to carry out excavations in the appropriate zone. This institution alone had the power to authorize such excavations. On July 16, 1970, my request was refused. Thus the only means of dating the Engraved Stones of Ica was closed to me.” (2)
In addition, several Ica Stones were discovered in unearthed tombs in the Ica region by archeologists in the 1960s, self-evidently authenticating these particular stones and bringing into question the almost universal dismissal of the Ica Stones in general:
“In 1968, the archeologist Pezzia Assereto, who had accompanied Agurto Calvo, published a book on the archeology of the province of Ica, in which he makes note of the discovery: "Agurto was able after several attempts to find an engraved stone inside a tomb in the sector of Toma Luz of the Hacienda Callango del Valle in Ica on 20 August 1966... After informing the Museo Regional of Ica of such an important find, Agurto and I made another excavation on 11 September of the same year, in the hill called Uhle of the sector of La Banda in the Hacienda Ocucaje, and we found for the first time an engraved stone inside a tomb of the Paracas culture, a thing I was not expecting, but which proved, by association, the authenticity of these artifacts"” (2)
Even so, things are rarely black and white. It is entirely possible that even if there are original, ancient Ica Stones dug out of the ground or found in tombs, there may also be a large body of faked Stones created by some of the locals hoping to cash in on the find. In which case, how does one determine which of them are genuine and which are faked, and how does one draw any firm conclusions from the body of Stones as a whole? A similar predicament presents itself when assessing the Crop Circles prevalent each year in the English countryside; no one thinks they are all ‘genuine’, but some researchers consider it likely that some crop circles are truly anomalous. This complex picture seems plausible, so we must tread carefully when similarly considering the Ica Stones.

If entirely genuine, the Ica Stones present a massive body of ancient scientific knowledge in the realms of astronomy, medicine, cartography, biology, and technology and natural history. So it is little wonder that the authenticity of these myriad stones has been called into question. Dr Cabrera’s most explosive claim was that depictions showing men alongside dinosaurs indicated that the stones emanated from the very remote past, and that mankind lived during the era of the dinosaurs. This rather incredulous claim probably banged a few more nails into the coffin of the Ica Stones; it certainly would not have endeared his efforts to academia.
Yet others have also suggested such a possibility. For example, on the fossilised bed of the Paluxy River in Texas the so-called ‘Taylor Trail’ of human footprints is crossed over by prints of a three-toes dinosaur. The ancient rock at this site is dated to over 100 million years (3). Fossilised footprints have been discovered in deep mines, indicating human antiquity well beyond the current estimates. Conversely, other relics from the ancient past, like the 5000 year old Egyptian ‘Palette of Narmer’ seem to show dinosaurs interacting with people (3).
This area of research is a fascinating one, though somewhat beyond the scope of this essay. However, I think one should be careful about assuming that a body of knowledge of dinosaurs among ancient peoples might indicate either remote human existence or the contemporary anomalous existence of such ‘live’ creatures. There is another possibility.
The supposed existence of a destroyed civilisation pre-dating Egypt and Sumer falls into two categories: the fabled existence of Atlantis, as described by Plato, and the intervention of space-faring gods, or ‘ancient astronauts’.
Both schools of thought have a spectrum of advocates, (and many detractors), and both theories call for advanced technology and scientific knowledge among a lost ancient people in both cases.
Traces of that knowledge are thought to have passed down by oral tradition, anomalous material evidence and through the careful and detailed construction of ancient monuments.
It seems eminently plausible to me that a working scientific knowledge of remote Natural History of our Earth would have been understood by either Atlanteans or, even more likely, the Anunnaki. In the case of the latter, the Anunnaki are described as having a keen interest in mining for gold (4), beginning in Africa and probably extending to South America. It does not seem beyond the realm of possibility that dinosaur bones were excavated, studied and perhaps collected.
Thus, a technologically advanced race of humans in antiquity may have known of the dinosaurs, and that knowledge may have filtered down to ancient peoples after the Cataclysm through dragon-based myths and the like.
