Philip Coppens

Philip Coppens

started his writing career as an investigative journalist, covering intelligence activities and politics.In 1995, he was a co-founder of Frontier 2000 (later called Frontier Magazine), a periodical with a circulation centered primarily in the Benelux countries. In 1999, he served as the primary researcher for The Stargate Conspiracy, a book about ancient Egypt and the degree to which its history serves as a continuing influence on contemporary politics and politicians.

Coppens' second book, The Canopus Revelation (2004), questioned the assumption that ancient Egyptians associated their god Osiris with the constellation of Orion. Instead he proposed Canopus, the second brightest star in the night-time sky. He appeared at Quest Conference 2005 to give a presentation on this idea. 

In Servants of the Grail (2009), Coppens suggested real-life counterparts for the characters in Chretein de Troyes Perceval, the story of the Grail. These included the identification of Rotrou III, Count of the Perche with Perceval. Also in 2009, he contributed a chapter to Ancient Code: Are You Ready for the Real 2012?, entitled "Ancient Inroads Towards a New Age".

From 2010 to 2012, Coppens was a frequent contributor to the History Channel's Ancient Aliens series. Nigerian journalist J.K. Obatala, writing about a month after Coppens' death, described him as an "ancient alien buff."Obatala credited Coppens with helping to debunk a claim that the Dogon Ayantu (spiritual leaders) of Mali had astronomical knowledge they could only have obtained from visitors from Sirius – in an article entitled "Dogon Shame."

In October 2012, he was a featured presenter at Intrepid Magazine's Paradigm Symposium.

A eulogy for Coppens, published in Intrepid's January print edition, included a quotation from Coppens' final post to his personal blog: "I was diagnosed with an extremely rare case of cancer, angiosarcoma, which affects less than 200 people in the U.S. (each year). Each case is almost by default unique… and so I found that the man who normally studies anomalies, has become a medical enigma a well.”Roughly a fortnight later, Coppens died.

Philip Coppens   3rd to appear:  ⁰¹∫⁰¹ The Evidence


     “It becomes ever more likely that the possible answer of ‘Have aliens visited in the past?’ could be a potential yes”.

The Evidence


Opening Quote;

     “It's a fact that our ancestors were more intelligent and had more technological superiority capabilities than our history books give them credit for”.

Saqqara Bird


The Last Quote;

     “Egyptologists believe that the pyramids were built to bury the dead pharaoh. The problem with the accepted view is the fact that not a single dead pharaoh's body has been found inside a pyramid, even when the pyramid was completely sealed, I.e. not a single grave robber could have entered it”.

The Dead Pharaoh’s Tomb



     “It's a question which is a scientific question. And you constantly have to ask it. And the possible answer of have aliens visited in the past could be a potential yes”.

Subject: Finale By: John Meurer Date: 04/07/2018

There are 3 or 4 secret shafts underneath the Giza pyramid, leading as deep as the iron surrounding the earth's core, one Shaft for maintenance, one for the counter weights to open the bottom door, and one or 2 to be flooded with Iron ore for power to the Pyramid. I'm back to see the finale, And the beginning of new times and travel. I pushed a block over the passage way to the shafts, while it was being constructed. I also know the location of the massive quartz crystal that can reveal all historic and political truths to the universe. There is a hole underneath the purple stone on top of the Giza Pyramid, leading to other voids. This is not false information, I am not interested in money or fame.
