On September 11, 2018, the former Minister of Security of Georgia Igor Giorgadze announced during a press conference in Moscow that the Lugar Laboratory in Tbilisi is conducting experiments on people. The mentioned announcement has been widely covered by 1 TV, Russia-24, REN TV, "Zvezda", NTV, Sputnik-Georgia news.
According to the former minister, the laboratory developed and tested on people drug "Sovaldi" for the treatment of hepatitis C, which, however, was contraindicated for those people, as a result of which they all died on the same day.
There is an accepted view that the Zorats Karer is in fact an ancient observatory. These claims have been made by several researchers, but the most important evidence is the work of the famous scientist and academician Paris Heruni "The Armenians and Ancient Armenia".
Heruni studied the Zorats Karer in the 1990s and 2000s and declared that the site is a 7,500-year-old observatory. The main argument for being an observatory was the holes in the stones through which it is possible to look at the sky.
However, studies conducted by archaeologists in Armenia in recent years have shown a different picture. Many of them are inclined to think that the monument is an ancient mausoleum complex. In contrast to previous studies, where the stones, the positions of their holes have been observed, archaeologists have conducted excavations for 5-6 years and conducted laboratory studies of the acquired materials, which allowed them to conclude that the current age of the site is not more than 4000 years. In other words, there is no evidence that it has a history of 7,500 years.
According to Prof. Dr. of Historical Sciences Ashot Piliposyan, the monument is not only a mausoleum. It occupies an area of about 10 hectares, and there is a large settlement in the northern part, which has not been excavated yet. There is a mausoleum in the southern part. The stones that many consider to be the oldest tools for tracking constellations are tombstones, wall coverings, or wall fragments. According to the professor, there are similar stones in the cemeteries of nearby communities.
The expert notes that the discovered materials allow to say that burial ceremonies were held in 4 different rounds here, and the holes in the famous stones were most likely intended for their transportation. According to Ashot Piliposyan, tombstones of medieval khachkars are placed in the graves of Elpin and Vorotnavank communities, all of which have similar holes in the lower part.
In 2020, the target of "antennophobes" is 5G systems. 5G is a fifth-generation wireless network that can provide a much faster internet connection. It is just being introduced in different countries of the world. Technology experts say that this is one of the greatest technological achievements in recent years.
As technology advances, so does the number of people who are afraid of new systems and consider them risky. The fear of these systems is not only typical of the Georgian society. There were active protests against the introduction of the systems in the Netherlands, Switzerland, Great Britain, etc. It was also claimed that the 5G systems were to blame for the spread of coronavirus.
The world must have collapsed in 1986, when the Halley’s Comet appeared in the sky. It is a periodic comet that appears every 74-79 years. Fans of apocalyptic scenarios hastened to associate the discovery of the comet to the imminent end of the world.
People were so frightened by the collision of the comet and our planet that the number of cardiovascular diseases and heart attacks increased significantly during that period.
The next time Halley will visit in 2061, so it’s needed to be prepared for new myths.
