“The earth is a much grander, mysterious and wondrous place than anyone could ever imagine in our wildest dreams! If true, an entire ‘second’ earth exists right below our feet!” So says one ArraiEl in an article published on the Yahoo Voices  website.

Such speculation motivated us to research and write UNDERGROUND BASES: Subterranean Military Facilities and the Cities Beneath Our Feet – one of the bestselling books in our Underground Knowledge Series.

An excerpt from Underground Bases  follows (lifted from a chapter titled ‘Combining technology and Mother Nature’):

While the vast majority of underground bases are said to have been constructed by the Military Industrial Complex, it seems most are also built inside or directly above natural, pre-existing cave networks. Either that or the constructors have made use of miles of abandoned mine tunnels and shafts.

This would make sense as those who design and build such bases would naturally look to utilize the best of nature and man – and possibly extra-terrestrial civilizations as well.

When it comes to American underground bases, this may not be as crazy as it first seems as much of mainland America is dotted with sinkholes, abandoned mines and enormous caves and cavern networks.

The word cave usually conjures up images of small caverns or fissures in the ground. But the reality is there are giant underground caves extending many, many miles underground. Some are said to be bottomless – and who are we to argue? For all we know, a cave or cave system could start in the wilds of Montana and end in Alaska.

Many caves, including one nicknamed the Subterranean Grand Canyon, are so vast only their entrances have been explored, while others – it’s universally agreed – have yet to be discovered let alone explored. And many of these giant cave systems contain rare rock formations and unusual geology, significant underground rivers, lakes and seas with unique species of cavefish in them, as well as abundances of gemstones, crystals and gold.

The Er Wang Dong cave system, in China, even has its own climate system complete with clouds and rain!

On October 2, 2013, the Daily Mail reported, “Adventurers have stumbled across a cave so enormous that it has its own weather system, complete with wispy clouds and lingering fog inside vast caverns.”

The report continues, “A team of expert cavers and photographers have been exploring the vast cave system in the Chongquing province of China and have taken the first-ever photographs of the natural wonder.

“They were amazed to discover the entrance to the hidden Er Wang Dong cave system and were stunned when they managed to climb inside to see a space so large that it can contain a cloud… The cave system discovered is not the only one with clouds inside, as humidity rises inside the caverns into colder air to form clouds inside the giant, enclosed spaces.

“The network, includes ‘Cloud Ladder Hall’ which itself measures around 51,000 metres squared, while there are rivers and vegetation on the floor of some of its huge caverns.”

One example of the scale of underground cave systems is the extensive system known as Craighead Caverns, in Sweetwater, Tennessee… But more about this phenomenon in a future blog.

If science one day evolves to the point where extended life or immortality becomes an option, would you want to live for hundreds or thousands of years, or even forever? …That’s the question we’ve put to members of the Underground Knowledge discussion group in our latest poll on Goodreads.com  —

Image result for immortality


Early poll results show respondents are divided with 40% opting for Hell yeah! and 40% opting for Hell no! and 20% undecided.

Some of the comments make for interesting reading:

Hell No!!! I want another round to see what I can get up to next!

I’d like to be able choose when to die! Immortality would drive me mad but I like the thought of a brain transplant – get a nice new body when I need it😉

No way! My great grandmother lived to 101, she had still walked everywhere and clear of mind, and she passed in her sleep…sounds great? Nope! Not according to my gran she said the last 20 years was the toughest even worse than living through the depression and 2 World Wars…

C’mon it’ll be fun! I mean, at least nobody will say the old cliche “life’s too short” anymore!

I don’t believe I’d like to live forever…I do think if reincarnation is the next step, I’d like to remember, and keep the wisdom gained in previous lives.

Immortality does indeed exist but not in this world. I wouldn’t want to live forever here.    

If I could live exactly how I’m living…..meaning, still eat, enjoy life, sleep, make love etc. Absolutely. No Zombie, Vampire etc type of living. And stay a certain age. Not too young, just right in age.

Our new release historical adventure WHITE SPIRIT (A novel based on a true story)  resonates with readers if the early Amazon reviews and sales are any guide.


White Spirit (A novel based on a true story)


Here’s what one Amazon reviewer (‘Kotuku’) has to say: “This is a Tour De Force of a book that follows the lives of convicts, guards, soldiers and above all the Aborigines of that time (1830’s)…Don’t be put off by the length, as every page and chapter is riveting…and the descriptions of the Aborigines is unparalleled in any other novel I have read. It is crying out to be made into a movie!”

And here’s what other reviewers say:

“This has to be my #1 for book of 2016. A must read.” -Tony Parsons

“It is an excellent book with great characters and a simple plot which is made complex by the many subplots. It is not a book to rush through but one to savor.” -P. Blevins

This was an amazing story. It is a sad story of mans ability to survive. It is definitely a page turner, I couldn’t put the book down.” -Mary L.Traylor

“One of the best novels I have ever read it kept me enthralled from start to finish. I couldn’t put it down – “a real fecking page turner” which will have you rooting for the Irishman John Graham. I hope there will be a movie made.” -Amazon Customer 

“I couldn’t put the book down. It is an outstanding and very satisfying read.” -Cyrano1db

“This is Lance and James Morcan’s best work to date. It is up there with Colleen McCullough’s Thorn Birds.” -Yvonne Crowe (author)

Amazing Story! I didn’t want to put it down! Sometimes fact is better than fiction. It took me a few days to read, since it’s a long book, but it’s well worth the effort!” -BCopanos

In our hard-hitting book INTERNATIONAL BANKSTER$: The Global Banking Elite Exposed and the Case for Restructuring Capitalism, we apply the metaphorical blowtorch to the central banking system – that financial entity responsible for overseeing the monetary system of a nation.

A lot of the financial corruption exposed in our book relates – either directly or indirectly – to the central banking system. Given central banks are responsible for overseeing the monetary system of a nation, managing its currency, setting interest rates and steering an economy toward inflation targets, we devote an entire chapter to the central banking system.

An excerpt from INTERNATIONAL BANKSTER$  follows:

Central banks are also often called reserve banks. For example, the Federal Reserve (also known informally as the Fed) is the central banking system of the United States.

Other examples of central banks around the world include the People’s Bank of China, the Reserve Bank of Australia, the Central Bank of Brazil, the Bank of Japan, the European Central Bank (ECB) and the Bank of England.

Elements of modern central banking systems have existed for around a thousand years and date back to The Song Dynasty (960-1279 AD) in China where the first circulation of a paper currency occurred.


“Under the guise of being nice guys, the central bankers have done to the people what no army in history has been evil enough to do.” –Jarod Kintz, This Book is Not FOR SALE


The legendary Knights Templar – the wealthy Christian military order that reigned in medieval Europe for almost two centuries (1119-1312 AD) – ran a banking system that economists widely believe inspired present-day central banks, including the Federal Reserve in the US.

However, it wasn’t until the 17th Century that the first official central banks were formed as certain nations such as the Netherlands, Sweden and the UK began to move away from commodity money (usually silver or gold) to circulating notes that simply represented ‘promises to pay’.

From there, the central banking system spread like wildfire all around the world. Eventually, such banks cropped up everywhere from Africa and Central America to South America and Asia.

There are certain independent researchers, perhaps of the sensationalist variety, who have said “central banks are pure evil” or made other such alarmist statements. However, in reality, if a nation’s central bank is managed without internal corruption and without interference from foreign countries, it should actually be a stabilizing force. In theory, a central bank can shield an economy from volatility in financial markets not to mention prevent fraudulent activities committed by commercial banks.

But the operative word, of course, is corruption. Throw corruption into the mix and central banks start veering toward the “pure evil” term some ascribe to them.


Next, we devote a short chapter to the history of central banking in the US, and, of course, the mighty Fed, aka the US Federal Reserve System, features prominently…but more about that later.

Some critics have asked us why we felt the need to write a book debunking Holocaust denial theories – the implication being that everyone believes the Holocaust happened as mainstream historians say it happened, and that the events of that ghastly occurrence have not been greatly exaggerated and are beyond dispute.

Holocaust exaggerated? Really?


Unfortunately, it’s a fact that many people don’t believe the Holocaust ever happened. This was a prime motivator for us to write and release DEBUNKING HOLOCAUST DENIAL THEORIES: Two Non-Jews Affirm the Historicity of the Nazi Genocide — a new release book that is already proving to be a thorn in the side of the deniers, and which, predictably, is drawing some flak.

An excerpt from this book’s introduction follows:

It’s a fact many people worldwide don’t believe the Holocaust ever happened. There is considerable documentation available to support this statement. For example, an exhaustive global poll conducted in 2014 by the ADL revealed that of those who have heard of the Holocaust, 32% (almost one third) believe it is a myth or has been greatly exaggerated.

More alarming still is that 26% of those surveyed harbored anti-Semitic attitudes. An interesting twist on this statistic is that 70% of those who harbored such attitudes “Have never actually met a Jewish person.”

The ADL’s poll – ADL Global 100: A Survey of Attitudes Toward Jews in Over 100 Countries Around the World – was no small survey. The countries surveyed included nine of the 10 most populous countries in the world.

Another revelation was that only 54% of those polled had heard of the Holocaust. Referring to the ADL poll, Holocaust survivor Martin Greenfield wrote in a January 2015 article (as reported by Fox News) that “Knowledge of Auschwitz is likely even more limited, particularly among young people. Past surveys have shown that nearly half of Britons had never heard of Auschwitz. Some schoolchildren even thought Auschwitz was a type of beer.” Greenfield summarized the issue well when he said, “For far too many, the Holocaust remains a mystery.”

Polls aside, Amazon and other online booksellers offer numerous Holocaust denial titles, some of which are selling fairly well and appear to have a cult following at least. A few of the more popular Holocaust denial books include: Did Six Million Really Die?, The Hoax of the Twentieth Century: The Case Against the Presumed Extermination of European Jewry, The Six Million: Fact or Fiction, The Myth of the Extermination of the Jews  and Auschwitz: The First Gassing: Rumor and Reality.

If you, dear reader, are unfamiliar with the Holocaust, read on – and be prepared to be shocked.

If, however, you subscribe to Holocaust denial theories or are in the process of being swayed by the denialists’ arguments, we would implore you to carefully analyze your sources, check the credentials of those feeding you such extreme concepts and (most importantly) ask some key questions.

Key questions would include:

-Is it possible the authors of such ‘information’ have a subtle agenda?

-Do they speak of Jews as if they are inferior, lesser beings or even enemies?

-Do they try to shift blame for the Holocaust away from Hitler and the Nazis?

-Could it be the opinions you are digesting come from biased or hate-filled individuals?

Whatever the case, for those who believe in Holocaust denial theories, we challenge those beliefs, notions and concepts in the chapters ahead. All we ask is that you keep an open mind. After all, factual information can always withstand intense scrutiny and dissection whereas lies and falsehoods cannot. Right?

We believe the Holocaust is an extremely important historical event humanity must learn from if it is to survive let alone achieve world peace. It’s not just a Jewish issue – it’s a human one. If more recent genocides in Rwanda, Cambodia and the former Yugoslavia are any guide, the lessons of Nazi Germany have not yet been learnt. We suspect German philosopher of the late Enlightenment Friedrich Hegel was right when he said, “The only thing we learn from history is that we learn nothing from history.”

All truth-seekers should study the genocide that was the Holocaust and ask themselves how on Earth this event was allowed to occur, keeping in mind allowed is the correct term as there was no shortage of witnesses, including those all over Europe who stood by and did nothing to intervene.

If those bystanders hadn’t just stood by, perhaps the history books would tell a different story.

We have had the privilege of meeting Holocaust survivors. Seeing the Nazi identification numbers tattooed on their arms and listening to their personal accounts of the atrocities that occurred inside and outside the concentration camps during WW2, makes a powerful impact. It changes a person on the inside.

Unfortunately – and this is the key point – those last remaining Holocaust survivors are now in their twilight years, and as they fade away, the anti-Semites seem to be strengthening in their resolve to challenge the historicity of the Holocaust. Once the last survivors have passed on, the battle to preserve the truth will surely be more difficult.

With the publication of this book we, as non-Jews, are doing our small part to stand up for the truth. So let us state unequivocally here and now: the Holocaust happened EXACTLY as per the history books. Period. Fact. No debate whatsoever. Lance & James Morcan
