Author, researcher, and archaeologist David Hatcher Childress spoke about a variety of mysterious and sometimes ancient places and creatures. There is evidence of ancient visitors to the New World, who may have come here by boat as far back as 1,000 to 2,000 BC, he said. He cited an expedition to the Grand Canyon reported in the Phoenix Gazette in 1909, in which artifacts such as a Buddha-like statue were found, as well as the case of the Elephant Stone of Aztec, New Mexico in which elephants and hieroglyphics were carved into ancient slabs.
Among some of Childress' other intriguing observations and reports:
This image might be proof that the elusive Loch Ness Monster exists. Jason Cooke recently spotted the image while browsing through Google Earth's satellite photos. More here.
First hour guest, author Steve Alten, an expert on Nessie, shared his analysis of the photo. By inverting and enlarging the image, he was able to see something that looked like oars, which led him to conclude that it was a couple of guys in a rowboat, rather than the legendary creature.
