In September of 1985, after
traveling to 57 countries, I was absolutely amazed to discover the
ruins of a lost civilization in my own backyard.
The questions I'm most often asked about the ancient, megalithic
monuments I found in Malibu are:
If this is real how come now
one has ever reported it before?
Because no one was looking
Because, there is very
little recorded history about this part of the world.
What little we do know comes from the
Chumash Indians who lived in the area for about 5,000 years.
Chumash legends recall the "First People" that died in a
flood. They lived in a coastal valley called Mu, that
extended from the current coastline to the west side of the
Is there any
proof of that?
Yes. The oldest human remains in North America were found on an
island, about 25-miles off the coast of Malibu. See
Channel Island Woman.
And according to recent scientific studies:
"If a near-source tsunami was
generated by an earthquake or undersea landslide it could take
just 5 to 10 minutes to strike the coast with repeated waves 30
feet or higher."
"We have found steep undersea slopes in the Santa Monica Bay
and off San Clemente Island. There may be others in the
Santa Catalina Channel. The data suggests that Southern
California could be hit by a tsunami of great magnitude."
"A tsunami is not really made up of waves, but is more like a
surge of water, filled with debris, that suddenly moves onto
In fact, the Channel Islands are
the submerged, western-most portion of the Santa Monica mountains.
We know that the flooding of the Mu and some of its mountains
occurred fairly recently because sea level was at least 200 feet
lower before the end of the last Ice Age about 10,000 years ago.
there any other ruins like this on earth?
Yes. The site most like the monuments in Malibu is located in Peru.
It is called
There are also many ruins that have been recently discovered
Yonaguni, Japan - Lake Titicaca,
Peru - Alexandria, Egypt - Rock Lake, Wisconsin - the submerged
roads etc. in
Bimini and the incredible discovery
of what appears to be a sunken city off the coast of Cuba.
archaeologists are not studying this site?
For one thing there are very few
Chumash artifacts found near the monuments. The
Chumash had villages located all around the mountain, but most
likely only visited the higher elevations for hunting and religious
ceremonies. More importantly, most archaeologists do not accept that
any culture existed prior to a flood anywhere due to a lack of
evidence. This is absurd because any culture that was destroyed in a
flood/earthquake would be devastated thus making their discovery
that much more difficult.
Fortunately I have found that the new
generation of archaeologist are more open to the idea of using the
scientific process to discover the ruins of our ancient ancestors.
Recently, an archaeology student in Los Angeles who takes all
this very seriously contacted me. He has explored the ruins in
Malibu and has made some interesting discoveries.
"Myself and an archaeologist friend
of mine who shares my belief in the existence of "pre-flood"
civilizations are planning another trip to the Malibu
ruins with the intent of finding what I believe to be a
subterranean cavern system somewhere in the area. Though
that sounds perhaps a little outlandish I have recently read
Chumash stories about finding caves in "the
mountains" which contained "crystal sculptures of animals" that
were all unrecognizable to the Chumash. That is to say they were
animals the Chumash had never seen before (possibly now extinct
animals of the Pleistocene?) They also go on to say that the
caves were full of "things of the first people". Needless to say
this terrified the superstitious Chumash and they swore
to never return to these sorts of places.
I could really use your expertise on this and if you could aid
us in any way I would be most appreciative. Have you ever heard
of caves being found in the area or found any yourself? Also,
where exactly are the Stone Walls? I can never seem to
locate them or the "Sphinx " for that matter. Thanks
much! Your friend and fellow explorer."
