More About the Author

Rick Osmon was selected for the United States Air Force Academy right out of high school. He later attended Vincennes University and earned an Associates of Science in Laser and Electro-Optics Technology. He worked for defense contractors a number of years and then took a job with the US Navy as a civilian with an engineering support field activity, specializing in radar, night vision, and laser equipment for surveillance and munitions guidance Most of this work was in direct support of Special Operations forces equipment acquisitions. In that capacity, Rick also became familiar with video-teleconferencing technology.

But all those years, Rick was also reading everything he could find about the weird and unusual, history, archeology, paleontology, geography, cartography, cryptozoology, cryptography, and hollow earth theory.

After leaving government employment in early 2005, Rick began this hunt for hidden knowledge full time. He also began blogging, researching, and writing, and, in early 2007, started an internet radio show entitled "The Oopa Loopa Cafe". In 2008, he began pestering his long time research buddy, Dennis Crenshaw, to start another internet show about the various mysteries. Dennis chose the title "Unraveling the Secrets".

At the beginning of 2010, those 2 shows became part of an affiliation network with other show hosts to form Paranormal Soup Network. By the end of 2010, the endeavor was re-branded and renamed the Soup Media Network.

Now Rick is becoming well known on the conference circuit and is writing more than blogs. His first book, The Graves of the Golden Bear; Ancient Monuments and Fortresses of the Ohio Valley released in October 2011.

Beginning Monday, December 3rd, Rick will be hosting the Oopa Loopa Cafe as a 2 hour weekday show, live Noon to 2 PM eastern on that station. He'll have first run videos from a whole covey of savvy treasure hunters, including a few across the pond, regular spots for comic book enthusiasts and collectors, entertainment news, reported directly from the west coast, local news sports and weather, a bit of weird now and then, as well as live in-studio guests. And, yes, the shows will be archived for on demand viewing.

Format: Paperback
This book was a pleasure to read. I found it similar to an earlier work that Frank Joseph edited. Like that work, it was a collection of short essays or articles. In this work, the tone is less aggressive and more scholarly, which helps with both credibility and readability. People in Mr. Joseph's professional circles are very interested in the feud between themselves and mainstream archeologists. Readers, much less so. Our interest is in the subject itself, and this work reflects that better than the previous one.

As with the previous one, some of the arguments are facetious. This problem is one reason why those taking these alternate views of archaeological dogma are often so quickly dismissed as "not serious." I think that's a pretty thin reason, because poor arguments do not make unexplained evidence go away; they just leave it unexplained. It would be better to say, "This person has a point, and although it's not a well-made point it is a good place from which to rethink this topic."

That's how I have approached these works. It isn't true that you must accept Theory B for Theory A to be false. If Theory B is false, that doesn't make Theory A true. Both are possibilities. But if Evidence X puts Theory A on shaky ground (no pun intended) or even makes it untenable, then a new theory is needed.

One pleasure of this book is the discovery of things you just don't read about elsewhere unless you subscribe to very narrowly focused magazines and other media (and I do not mean narrowly focused in a negative sense). Another pleasure is exploring along with the contributors their take on what these things might be. Where the logic fails, the reader must switch from that exploration to merely musing on some possibilities.

Format: Paperback
The Lost Worlds of Ancient America by Frank Joseph contains 45 chapters that will stretch your imagination and your beliefs in the traditional history we have all accepted as authentic. Joseph, who is the magazine Ancient American and the author of many books, has compiled fascinating articles by many reknowned, if non traditional, historians and archeologists and their many amazing discoveries in the Americas. These prove that the Americas were discovered and inhabited hundreds and thousands of years before Columbus and the "official" European dicsoverers ever set foot here. Ancient people of the americas, according to the legends, artifacts, and evidence presented here were able to fly, had come from places such as ancient Rome, included people such as Celts and Knights Templar. The evidence includes bones,an ancient highway, a Templar Tower, a 3,000 year old Phoenician altar, many coins from Imperial Rome, a cave with over 1,000 artifacts and drawings, authenticated to be ancient, giant human bones, and much more. This book will shatter traditional and boring history and open the reader to a much more fascinating continent than previously thought of both North and South America!

The Lost Worlds of Ancient America
Edited by Frank Joseph
USBN: 978-1-60163-204-3
USBN: 978-1-60163-614-0 (ebook)

In The Lost World of Ancient America, Frank Joseph put together forty-five articles previous-ly published in magazines and journals about ancient Americans and their possible origins. The-se articles offer evidence that the earliest settlers in America may not have migrated across the Bering Strait.
Some of the articles directly challenge the "Bering Strait" theory and others offer thought-provoking evidence showing that it is entirely possible that the first Americans may not have come from Asia; that they may have come from other parts of the world arriving by sea. There has long been evidence that Columbus was not the first European to cross the Atlantic. Even back in the 1950's at least one history book put forth the possibility that Leif Erikson had landed in America. (This I know because I read it in the history book I studied as a child.)
Archeological evidence was found L'Anse aux Meadows in Newfoundland to verify that the Vikings did indeed have a settlement in America. But even they weren't the first. The articles collected into this anthology give physical evidence America was settled by sea: Europeans and Near Eastern peoples may have immigrated to North and South America's eastern coasts by sea and Asians may have come to the west coasts of both North and South America.
In addition to the physical evidence, a more compelling technology is being applied to the unraveling of this mystery--DNA. Mitochrondian DNA is being studied, not only from living Na-tive Americans but from burial sites. Of particular interest to scientists are DNA samples taken from skeletal remains with European characteristics.

Format: Paperback
What if America was explored centuries before its "discovery" by Columbus? This is the question posited and answered in The Lost Worlds of Ancient America. The Lost Worlds of Ancient America looks at the substantial evidence of the exploration of large parts of America prior to the visit of Columbus to the West Indies. This evidence has largely been suppressed by mainstream archaeology in the Americas. There are even cases where discoveries have been accepted and shared within the archaeological community until the age of the discovery has been verified to be Pre-Columbian at which point the discovery is then espoused to be a fraud. This would almost be acceptable if we were discussing one or two discoveries but The Lost Worlds of Ancient America examines dozens of examples garnered from eighteen years of documentation of the multitude of examples of Pre-Columbian exploration of America.

Take for example the discovery of a stone with a Hebrew inscription dating to the first century, or the discovery of several dozens of Roman coins dating to the third century found along the beaches of the Atlantic seaboard and up and down the Ohio River Valley. These coins have been discounted as frauds deliberated planted by people, or as lost members of the collections of individuals, yet there is no evidence to support either of these claims and it is natural to assume that early explorers of the Americas would have navigated the Ohio River in an attempt to further explore the land. Additionally Roman swords dating to the same era were found buried many feet below the surface in Cincinnati, Nashville and Saint Louis. Not all of these finds can be fraudulent.
