The hills in Visoko are a natural formation and not pyramids, as Semir Osmanagic wishes to present them, says Bosnian Culture Minister. The Ministry of Culture of the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina wants to put an end to the funding of the project “Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun.†Opinions on the subject as well as on the pyramid phenomenon are so divided in Bosnia that some public persons, who have denied the existence of pyramids, said that they would set themselves on fire if those were really proven to pyramids. Numerous politicans have given support to the research in Visoko, formerl... [More]

Wow, somebody is jumping to conclusions quickly. Sounds like there's something hidden that someone doesn't want to be found?

Whats hidden is the HOAX!! This is a big load of garbage, similar to how certain peolpe in India will claim to have levitation abilities or that there is a boy who is the reincarnation of Buddah... its all done for tourism and the local economy does prosper because of it. The "stones" they excavated are a naturally occuring cement-like mixture. Bosnia does have some legitamite phenomea such as giant stone balls similar to those found in mexico... although there is no certainty to their origins. http://www.bosnianpyramid.com/Archive_file...StoneBalls.html

And where is your undeniable proof that this is a hoax. how do you know something the rest of the world does not know. It doesn't work that way. The person making the wild claim is the one who has to prove it.

Personally, Iím glad to see the government stop funding this, I'd like to see them finally step in and put a stop to this folly... Semir Osmanagi?'s claims, widely reported in the mass media, have been challenged by a number of experts, who have accused him of promoting pseudo-scientific notions and damaging archaeological sites with his excavations. Penn State University Professor Garrett Fagan is quoted as saying "They should not be allowed to destroy genuine sites in the pursuit of these delusions[...] Itís as if someone were given permission to bulldoze Stonehenge to find secret chambers o...

It doesn't work that way. The person making the wild claim is the one who has to prove it. Nope if the person is saying determedly its a hoax, he should have some proof as to why its a hoax, did that person go and singly handly dig up the mountain see there was nothing, then put the mountainside back, then proclaim to the world it is all a hoax, no he did not therefore have some proof as to why he said it. at least those working there are trying to find something, not just sitting back and passing judgement. The government only gave 10% of funding so pulling out wont make too much of a diffren... [More]

As one of those armchair archaelologists, I can say that nothing I have seen in pictures of print coming from the area has convinced me the pyramid is anything else but a natural phenomenon. Where are the tool marks? The tools? The garbage left behind by the builders? You can't build a pyramid without leaving at least some trace, humans are messy. The unfortunate thing in this whole excavation, is that they seem to be ignoring the true archaeological treasures or at least giving them secondary prominance. If they are looking for tourist attractions they have already found them, if not they rea... [More]

Damn! You mean I wasted $400 by buying that authentic Crystal Headband of the Ancient Bosnian Pyramid? And what about the Wisdom of the Ancients Blue Power Stick I bought for $200? So it was a hoax, huh? Hmmmm ... um ... anyone wanna buy a crystal headband and a stick ... at slight discount?
