Mission & Momentum

ORACUL is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization dedicated to the scientific study of civilization's origins. Through research advocacy, publishing, and educational outreach, further evidence for mankind's remote and forgotten past will be uncovered.

Documentary Film!

ORACUL has teamed up with a renowned filmmaker, and is poised to produce a serious documentary about a forgotten and much earlier cycle of advanced civilization.

We need your help to get this project completed. Donations are greatly appreciated.

ORACUL Educational Tour - June 2019 Egypt!


ORACUL is embarking upon our June 2019 educational tour of Egypt. We'll be visiting the archaeological (as well as anomalous and anachronistic) Egyptian sites that still inspire so much scientific debate today.

Scheduled for 5 June – 18 June of 2019, this ORACUL pilgrimage will be led by both geologist Dr. Robert Schoch and Egyptologist Mohamed Ibrahim. Wonderful talks and discussions will be held along the way, and you'll learn about the latest questions and evidence regarding the age of this ancient land.

Why We're Here

The scientific debate surrounding the origins of human civilization is far from settled. Independent research by scholars and professionals in the hard sciences has begun to challenge the accepted narrative of civilization’s beginnings. Today, there is a large body of evidence from a myriad of fields which argues convincingly for a revision of that narrative – pushing back the timeline for advanced culture by thousands of years.

Opposed by many orthodox scholars (whose interests are served by maintaining the status quo), serious scientists and professionals who attempt to bring attention to this contrary evidence are often ignored and ridiculed. Handicapped by a lack of funding, publicity, and professional networking, breakthrough research related to ancient cultures continues to languish in relative obscurity.

ORACUL works to bring this existing research to the attention of both the academic community and the public, as well as conducting new investigations into ancient cultures. This pioneering research involves not only professionals in the hard sciences, but also serious, out-of-the-box thinking in other disciplines. ORACUL will accomplish this goal by focusing on three primary areas of activity: Research Advocacy, Publishing, and Educational Outreach.
