The Grand Canyon: The Underground Citadel

by mystery61 on 06/09/09 at 4:10 am

This underground citadel is said to have been able to hold a population of a least 50,000 people.

 I heard this story many years ago and was very

fascinated by it. I could not recall all of it, so I did a little research to refresh my memory and get my facts straight. Here is the story:

       The Arizona Gazette published an article in their newspaper telling about the discovery of a great underground citadel. This article appeared on April 5, 1909. The location of this magnificent discovery was the Grand Canyon. This discovery was made by a man named G. E. Kinkaid.

      Ancient ruins from the Anasazi, Hopi and other cultures had been found in this general area, but this find was clearly different. The article that was published said that whoever lived in the cavern, that was discovered, were of oriental origin.

      As to how he made this discovery and what exactly he did discover is as follows:

      G. E. Kinkaid says he was traveling down the Colorado River, he was alone and just looking for minerals. He saw on the east wall of the Grand Canyon, sedimentary formation stains, he said they were about 2,000 feet above the river bed. There was no trail but he climbed up to a shelf. When he got there, he noticed a mouth of a cave. He walked over and looked and noticed chisel marks. He became very interested and went inside.

     He said he traveled several hundred feet in a passage way which led him into a crypt. In the crypt, he discovered several mummies. He said he took pictures of them by flashlight. Kinkaid looked around and found some relics, he gathered these up and left. He carried these things back to the boat and left. He said, he later shipped them to Washington.

      G. E. Kinkaid later came back for further explorations and discovered even more.

       Besides the mummies, which he claim there were many and they smelled bad because there was no ventilation. He discovered what he called a Shrine. In this Shrine was an idol, some kind of people’s god, sitting crossed legged, holding a flower in each hand. He said these flowers look like they were lotus flowers or it could have been a lily. The face looked to be oriental. He said taking everything in to consideration, it reminded him of the ancient people of Tibet. Surrounding this idol were other images, some looked to be symbols of good and some looked to be symbols of evil.

      Also there were discoveries of copper and gold cups, that were said to be very artistic in design. There were glazed and enameled pottery wares found. There was also a storeroom found that contained various seeds.

     On the doorways, walls, pottery and tablets of stone that were found, there were strange hieroglyphics. Among all this writing only two animals were discovered.

     The Smithsonian does not acknowledge any discovery by this man and claim they received no artifacts. Is this really true or are they covering something up for some reason?

      Why would a newspaper print a story like this and put their reputation on the line? In March of 1909, The Arizona Gazette had published an article stating that G. E. Kinkaid had made a discovery in the Grand Canyon but it did not go into detail.

       If this is true, then it is a remarkable discovery! But why hasn’t anyone else been able to find it? Maybe the entrance to cave collaspe in. If there is such a place, will we ever be able to find it again?

you know this is all B.S right? Eurocentrics and Afrocentrics are always trying to make it look like asians, africans or pre-colombian europeans ran native american society, i hate how people will lie about this sort of stuff just to make native americans look as if they weren’t even in america at all.

This is an amazing story. It is known (and you can do your own research) that every culture that has been around long enough…has been influenced and changed by certain “godly” deities. Kukulcan of the Yucatec Mayans, Quetzalcoatl of the Aztecs or Q’up’umatz of the K’iche’ Mayans. All 3 deities were referred to as the “Feathered Serpents”.
The oriental looking shrine holding the two lotus flowers is to convey the idea of purity and divine birth both in Buddhism and theosophy. All of these teachings (although they may seem harmless) are perversions of God’s marvelous creations. Biblical events and stories have been twisted by occultists for centuries, offering interpretations that seek to keep man in the bondage of Satan’s lies. Often this lie is nothing more than the same one given by the serpent in Genesis chapter 3; “you will be like God..”
One last thing….
A couple years ago…I was researching “Real Giants” or as the bible refers to them “Nephilum”…when I came across an article that told of Tibetan villages that stayed away from certain areas of certain mountains…because they believed evil entities lived in the Himalayas…which made me think of a bible verse I was taught at a young age.
“…be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the “HIGH PLACES”. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth…” Ephesians 6:10-14

DO NOT BE DECEIVED!! The thing that ruled this grand canyon cavern is not heavenly being or anything positive. God in Heaven is the Alpha and the Omega. The beginning and the end.
