The Cost of Hidden Knowledge

Indy contemplates the theft of the golden idol, that when lifted sets off a chain reaction of 'booby-traps' that nearly kill him.  Is the idol symbolic of our quest for knowledge?

I’ve been away from the Message To Eagle blog for too long…I really love the stories brought to light as they are well researched and thought/imagination provoking.

Like the author of the article below, I’ve had hope that some of mankind’s greatest mysteries and strongly held beliefs would be shattered with an open-source approach to archaeology. Based on what I’ve been reading lately, there is a thirst for knowledge about our past that appears unprecedented in human history.  We are exploring the boundaries of what we know and finding that there is more on the other side.  What may be possible has overtaken what is probable and given us a wider view of ourselves that is hopeful in a world that at times appears hopeless.

But what is the cost of this free unfettered knowledge?  Is it like the scene in my favorite movie (see image above) where archaeological artifacts are hidden away for our own benefit?  Can we be trusted to peer into the archives of the Vatican?  Would humanity go mad?  Or would it be set free?

Consider this article from Message To Eagle:

“Ignorance, suppression, denial, and cover-ups of anomalous artifacts and fossils are practiced today and have been for hundreds of years. That is an unfortunate development of human history.”

“Is there a plot to control history?

“Some years ago, author and researcher David Hatcher Childress expressed his views on the subject of suppression of archaeological evidence. In an article entitled Archaeological Cover-Ups he wrote the following: “Most of us are familiar with the last scene in the popular Indiana Jones archeological adventure film RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK in which an important historical artefact, the Ark of the Covenant from the Temple in Jerusalem, is locked in a crate and put in a giant warehouse, never to be seen again, thus ensuring that no history books will have to be rewritten and no history professor will have to revise the lecture that he has been giving for the last forty years.

“While the film was fiction, the scene in which an important ancient relic is buried in a warehouse is uncomfortably close to reality for many researchers.
