  1. Is there any REAL proof about the log platforms and 90 ft stone?

    SSR, you had written "Local German legend had spoken of strange geometric goings on in Chester Bay." That's the very first time I have heard of this, so I"m wondering if you could give me a nudge in the right direction to learn more about that. If not, that's fine, but I figured I'd at least...
  2. My abbreviated theory for the Knights Templar treasure in Nova Scotia

    There are gravestones in Scotland that are unabashedly Templar. Thought I'd mention that as folks seem to want to dismiss all things Templar. One thing that is beyond a doubt is that the Templars were never dissolved in Portugal. The king just changed their name to the Order of Christ. And...
  3. Persistent Claims of a Hoax

    That's the map I grew up with Mike. Thanks for sharing!
  4. A strong start - season 6

    It would be interesting to get into those old maps at the NS Archives. If we are dealing with a navel presence, there should be some reference I would think. Not a visible route mind you, but there ordinarily would be words of some sort on a map. Just a thought.....
  5. Oak Island the Strange, the Bizarre, and Maybe the "Truth!

    Further to my post above, that 1781 Spanish coin, rated fx, is rather interesting. What if it hadn't even been in circulation? Just pondering what that could mean, if anything.
  6. Oak Island the Strange, the Bizarre, and Maybe the "Truth!

    Hi everyone, I just discovered this page this morning. https://oakislandlotfive.com/ Mr. Young is not speaking of untold lost treasures on his site, but he does not appear to be dismissive either, sharing some information in a way that is objective in my opinion. There may be something of...
  7. Oak Island the Strange, the Bizarre, and Maybe the "Truth!

    The Zeno narrative is believed by most historians to be a hoax, but it has not been definitively proven to be a hoax. There is a difference.
  8. Oak Island the Strange, the Bizarre, and Maybe the "Truth!

    Further to the Portuguese: https://www.oakislandcompendium.ca/blockhouse-blog/the-mysterious-lost-inscribed-ardoise-stone-of-hants-county This stone was found on Ardoise Hill, as the crow flies from Oak Island. Manulis is a Portuguese name. Not saying Templar/Knight of Christ mind you, just...
  9. Oak Island the Strange, the Bizarre, and Maybe the "Truth!

    Just thought I'd mention again that it is not possible to dismiss the presence of the Templars here because nothing has been written about them. Some early Portuguese explorers to this area were Knights of Christ. The Knights of Christ were the Templars, just another another name. When the...
  10. The Two Idiots at it Again!

    Why Oak Island though and why the Jesuits? If we go with the 18th century, this area was firmly under British control - why permit the Jesuits to do anything? The theory also suggests the creation of tar pits on Oak Island for preservation of naval stores. Why there though? If Oak trees were...
  11. The Two Idiots at it Again!

    The most intriguing post for me yet on one of these threads (goodness knows which one) was the hypothesis that what was on Oak Island was some sort of fish drying/salting operation by the Basques. I have to admit that it has spiked my interest. Could fit the age and reason for the coconut...
  12. Oak Island the Strange, the Bizarre, and Maybe the "Truth!

    Coconut fibres again. Even if one accounts for the distortion due to seawater/sea life, the numbers still do not jibe with a time for Europeans to be here if we accept the French/English narrative. Neither the Basques nor the Norse would have utilized that material. Plus or minus hundreds of...
  13. Oak Island the Strange, the Bizarre, and Maybe the "Truth!

    As someone who grew up with the stories surrounding Oak Island, from multiple sources by the way, and as someone who knows a great deal about the history of this province, I'm quite comfortable determining for myself what is "screwed up" regarding Oak Island's narrative, as I'm sure new posters...
  14. The Two Idiots at it Again!

    There are hundreds of islands in this area - the old adage is that there are 365 - one for each day of the year. This area was a favoured haunt for privateers and pirates. I wouldn't be surprised one bit if one of these islands had treasure on it still to be found. Considering the history...
  15. Metal detecting and scanning beach yeilds a (cleaned?) Crossbow arrow shaft

    While I would like to believe this is a part of a crossbow, they really need to send the item off to an expert to determine what it is before I'll accept it as such.
