This article isn’t really “news,” so to speak, but rather an opportunity to consume some recently declassified files from the United States Department of Defense (DoD) and Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). More specifically, below you can find declassified files which contain information on ancient historical buildings, landmarks, infrastructure and mythology – including the Bible itself. Honestly, who isn’t interested in that? And if that doesn’t draw you in to want to read more then honestly, what are you even doing on my site?
The first document I would like to share is a release from the Department of Defense yesterday, actually, showcasing aerial footage and photography of historical architecture and world heritage sites across Iraq – ancient Babylon. While the photos were originally assembled in the 1950’s to track enemy ground movements across the country, they do provide an interesting and unique perspective in terms of Middle Eastern history. Perhaps some of this is even more interesting given the fact that many world heritage sites across Iraq have since been lost forever – destroyed by the Islamic State over the course of the last decade.

The second release of documents I would like to share were included in a treasure trove of leaked documents released by the CIA in 2017 – the result of a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit. However, the subject of these particular documents is extremely peculiar. For example, they discuss the stories of Genesis, Adam and Eve and the Great Flood of Noah in terms of both history and climatology. Honestly, I have never come across anything like them in all of my years of academic study or online activism. Consequentially, this is why I am featuring them here today – simply to share interesting information with the world – you’re welcome!
