    Just saw a commercial for a History Channel miniseries dealing with Oak Island.
    It is supposed to be six half hour shows, and starts on January 5, 2014.

    See some more info I found doing a search at

    This should be an interesting show. I hope they delve into all the possibilities & not get stuck on just the most popular theories. I love the History channel. Thanks for sharing

    I don't believe there is anything special about Oak Island other then
    the amounts of Money wasted there digging & Re-digging the same holes
    over & over.
    But Thanks ! If i remember it when the Time comes to set my DVR,
    I'll give it a look

    I will be watching, I still believe that there IS something of value there, why else would there be all those channels, they serve no other purpose. Also, it is one of the Treasure Legend places that I have actually been to, and walked with my own two feet. :-)

    For those that believe there is still a Templar Treasure in the Money Pit, you must also believe in the Easter Bunny. Yes there was a man made pit 90' deep and yes there was wood supports every 10' and yes they found charco and coconut fibers . The Templar Treasure was their once but its gone. Nothing has been found in the last 500 years except artifacts placed their by diggers to raise money. The owners spent $15 million to buy Oak Island and they will be the last ones to admit nothing is there until they make their money back. Could the Treasure be in New Ross, NS or in a sunken shipwreck in the Delaware River is the real question. We are working at both sites and we will post what we find by June.

    on the other hand, I believe the wood supports every 10'
    and charco and coconut fibers, were from past Treasure Hunters,
    along with everything else found.
    the so called tunnels feeding water into the pit are as natural
    as the underground rivers & feeders throughout the world.
    and at some point Treasure Hunters dug into one.

    My reasoning , even a Pirate or "Templer " would have wanted to retrieve anything they buried,
    with the least amount of prying eyes. some will argue the pirate could shoot the
    slaves/cohorts after the retrieval but remember. black powder Guns needed to be reloaded after each shot.
    If you had 10 diggers to silence, how many would you be able to off before
    someone says "there is more of us then him"
    also Life spans back then were half of what they are now.
    how many natural life spans past through the oak island story.

    and if your talking a Templer hiding something by Hocus Pocus.
    Aliens or a pre atlantian pre dinosaur civalization who only buried it a foot deep,
    and time covered it over,
    would be more believable.

    I believe if there was a Treasure, or grave there,
    it was dug back up in less then 20 years after it was buried.
    and was only 6 feet deep.

    But again, These are my beliefs & problems with these stories.
    I hope I'm wrong & someone other then the people selling the fantasy
    profit one day.

    I also could never figure out why a treasure that you would want to someday recover would be made so hard to retrieve.

    spent some time searching for info and found this



    I agree with this guy 100%............because it makes a whole lot more sense then burying something 130' deep ...........and exactly how did they dig that deep and not encounter the flooding problems in the first place.

    The wooden barriers,coconut fibers,charcoal,personal items,pieces of dishes and even "the flooding trench"........is all explained and makes perfect sense.

    There never was anything in the Money Pit on Oak Island to find.

    The smoking gun for this being an inverted Viking ship is........they found an Viking age anchor very close to the original pit.

    the "flooding shaft" was uncovered is exactly where the mast of the ship would be and also the wooden platforms had a 10' gap on a Viking ship just as in the money pit.

    All evidence points to the Money Pit being a Viking Longship.

    Hey all, forgive me if I'm wrong, but aren't these shows already recorded and in the can waiting to be aired? The search is already over and if anything had been found, it would be in the news already, right?

    It's like those finding bigfoot shows, if they had discovered a bigfoot while filming it would be have been reported by now.

    Cool, hope you're right. I would rather see an authentic Viking ship then a box of the same old same old loot.
    If I found a big loot I would by me a Viking longship and sail the world fighting giant squids and loch Ness monsters! WOO HOO!

    I just saw the TV show and I like it. Its good to see someone doing work on Oak Island after all these years. I hope they do find something to prove who built the Money Pit. Good Job. Good Luck.

    So far they've just been vacuum dredging and videoing the modern "Bore Hole 10-X" instead of the pit proper 180 feet away. Guess they have to stretch out the not finding of anything over many episodes.

    America was founded by tough hell-raisers. Rugged citizens who evaded taxes, spoke strongly against tyranny, grew tobacco, brewed beer, distilled spirits, and smuggled weapons. And it will be saved by those same types of citizens.

    Do you believe McGinnis or not?

    Logic check: if his story as is told today is factual, and I buried something there (regardless of the depth), why the heck would I leave rigging above the dig site after I was finished filling it in? I may have well left instructions and put a big X on the ground while I was at it. If his story is incorrect, the whole thing falls apart. Take your pick, but remember that the digging started because of McGinnis, and the scenario that he presented is illogical.

    If I have decided to dig some enormous hole to bury something (and left what was essentially a giant arrow directly above it to help out anyone who happened to pass by in finding it), why would I bury helpful indicators every ten feet or so to remind them that they're indeed digging in the right place? Why leave stones with weird carvings on them? What possible purpose could that serve? And why is it that every time someone sinks a hole in that general area, they come up with some amazing "discovery" that proves nothing (and indeed can't be proved), but hints at new wonders further down?

    This story serves as another good example of a lack of critical thinking. Here we have some poor island with so many holes in it, I'm surprised that it hasn't sunk by now. Nobody has found anything and no one even knows where the original hole was anymore, but we've already come up with stories about what's down there and how it got there. How about we wait until something is produced (if ever) and then figure out how it ended up in that hole?

    I look at this and I see one giant red flag stretching back literally centuries, all the way to the beginning. The original story didn't make sense, and things make less sense now. (Actually it all makes perfect sense to the geologists, but few seem interested in what they're saying. I'll bet that a psychiatrist would have something to say about all of this too.)

    As for these guys...hey, it's their money. I don't see how there's anything to find down there but I wish them luck in it regardless, and I sincerely hope that no one gets hurt in the process. This is one of those cases where I'd love to be proved wrong, but I'm not going to hold my breath while I wait for that to happen.

    This legend is very aptly named, but in a strictly ironic sense.
