The Mystery of Oak Island

Like many, I have been watching the Curse of Oak Island on the History Channel. It is a series that is now in it’s
third season.

It is a story about a mysterious treasure vault buried on Oak Island, located off the coast of Nova Scotia in northeastern Canada. The story line goes that no one knows what if anything is buried at the bottom of the deep pit.

Whoever buried it there boobie trapped it, making it virtually unreachable to anyone who tries.

Many have tried and so far six men have died trying to find the treasure.To date, the explorers have found artifacts from the pirate days of the seventeenth century, evidence of possibly Knights Templars visiting the island, a Spanish coin and recently, evidence that Seafarers from the Roman Empire may have been there.

Theories the treasure may be the Holy Grail, the Ark of  the Covenant, Aztec treasures, and some even surmise pirates such as Blackbeard may have buried his treasure here.

Situated in the North Atlantic as it is, it may have been catch-all for many different seafarers.

The mystery surrounds the fact the pit is over two hundred feet deep and under the current level of the ocean. The mystery not only is about how to uncover it but how did the treasure get there in the first place?

How could whoever buried it been able to dig a hole that far into the ground which is below sea level in the first place?

You can’t just dig a hole in water and expect the water to not fill the hole.  Digging the hole that close to the ocean would make one believe the water would naturally flow in at some point in time.

But maybe there is another explanation. What if when the pit was constructed, it wasn’t below the water level?

History tells us that about twelve thousand years ago, during the ice age, the ocean levels were much lower than they are today. While it is true the ice caps would probably have covered Oak Island, no one knows for sure, there have been underwater cities discovered in other parts of the world that are now over 300 feet below sea level, one off the coast of Scotland for instance.

If that were the case the pit could have been constructed with ease.  Someone who was highly intuitive could have constructed the booby-trapped obstacles to prevent anyone from uncovering the treasure once the oceans rose to their present levels and making it’s discovery nearly impossible.

Once the pit was constructed and the waters rose, many artifacts could have been left there by the following explorers who frequented the area.

Sooner or later the mystery will be solved and the secrets of Oak Island will be revealed, until then, happy speculation.

A journey of spiritual discovery

At this period of time in the history of man, there is probably more individual searching being done into the theories behind the origin of the human race, what happens after death, the possibility of life on other planets, and what our relationship is to these life forms if they do exist.
There are millions of people who are questioning the existence of God, who he really is, and what is my relationship with him? Is he someone who mysteriously floats around on a cloud watching and judging us from above like some bigger than life Santa Claus, or is he, like many of the esoteric sciences claim, a part of our inner Self, whom we have constant contact with, someone whom we and everything in the universe are connected and are thus one? Each of us in our own way is experiencing what God is, and thus, we are each a part of God, thus we are God!
