In Chariots of the Gods? He reported seeing mounds of gold, strange statues, and a library containing metal tablets, all of which he considered to be evidence of ancient extraterrestrial visitation. A local priest, Father Crespi, stewarded a collection of the gold extraterrestrial relics, he said, with special permission from the Vatican.
Embassy in Rome , then current Director of the Egyptian Section of the Vatican Museum, as "suspect[ing] that Tulli was taken in and that the papyrus is a fake. Descriptions of some Nazca line photos in Chariots of the Gods? One, for example, purporting to demonstrate markings of a modern airport, was actually the knee joint of one of the bird figures, and was quite small in size. Consensus among archeologists is that the Nazca lines were created by pre-Columbian civilizations for cultural purposes. Crown, in Some Trust in Chariots , explains how this is simply wrong.
But Piri Reis said that he had drawn that map himself using older maps, and the map is consistent with the cartographic knowledge of that time. However, the technique of construction is well understood, the tools the Egyptians used are known, marks left in the quarries by those tools are still visible, and many examples of the tools are preserved in museums. In his book, he says that there is no evidence of Egyptian workers at the pyramid site;  however, archaeologists have found evidence of buildings where workers would have lived,  with bakeries and sewer systems. This may indicate the workers were well taken care of, which suggests they were Egyptian.
In fact the calculation produces a figure of only 91, miles. Not only that, but he notes that the Great Pyramid is located on the Median line, divides the continents,  and that the Egyptians could not align the edges so perfectly to true north without advanced technology that only aliens could give them. Egyptian builders, however, knew of simple methods to find north via star observation. They figured this out just based upon the North Star and also locate other stars when they came into alignment with the merkhet. However, archaeologists see nothing special about the figure, a dead Maya monarch K'inich Janaab' Pakal wearing traditional Maya hairstyle and jewellery, surrounded by Maya symbols that can be observed in other Maya drawings.
The right hand is not handling any rocket controls, but simply making a traditional Maya gesture that other figures in the sides of the lid also make, and is not holding anything. The rocket shape is actually two serpents joining their heads at the bottom, with the rocket "flames" being the beards of the serpents. The rocket motor under the figure is the face of a monster, symbol of the underworld. But the PBS television series Nova determined that the stones were modern, and located the potter who made them. This potter makes stones daily and sells them to tourists.
He says that he didn't believe the potter when he said that he had made the stones. But the potter had proof that Cabrera had thanked him for providing the stones for the museum.

This in turn prompted the conservative cantons, initially secret, to form the "Sonderbund" Special Union in December In July the Federal Diet voted to dissolve the Sonderbund, amend the constitution and to expel the Jesuits which led to protests not only by the Vatican but also from the big conservative European powers of France, Russia, pre-revolutionary Prussia and Austria. The liberals had the undisguised support of England.
The Sonderbund War broke out on 3. November and lasted until the surrender of the last conservative canton, Valais, on Liberal constitutions were installed in all cantons. With revolutions breaking out in France and Germany threats by these powers remained empty. The years from to the end of the Sonderbundwar are considered the first phase of the Swiss Kulturkampf. A second phase started with various disputes and conflicts in the s. Walter Munzinger, unhappy with the dogma of papal infallibility , organized the first Swiss convention of Catholics in Solothurn on 18 September for like-minded Catholics.
One of the disputes was about the town priest of Geneva, Gaspar Mermillod, who assumed the powers of the bishop for the local Catholics without the approval of the government. Despite the protest of the state council Mermillod continued to execute these powers; as a result, he was deposed on 20 September In response, the Swiss Federal Council expelled him. After pope Pius IX called these proceedings by the Swiss authorities "disgraceful" in an encyclical of 20 November , the Federal Council broke off diplomatic relations with the Vatican on 12 December Two priests in Lucerne and Starrkirch did not acknowledge the new dogma.
Lachat deposed and excommunicated them. Thereupon, the cantons Solothurn, Bern, Aargau, Thurgau and Basel-Landschaft deposed the bishop on 29 January and when the cathedral chapter refused to appoint an interim bishop, on 21 December they dissolved the diocese of Basel and liquidated Lachat's assets.

Lachat moved his office from Solothurn to Lucerne. They proclaimed Lachat to be their rightful bishop at which the Federal Council deposed them. Rioting in several villages of the Jura region was quelled by force and military occupation; the 97 clerics were expelled in January The federal government rescinded this ordinance in but supremacy over the church by the canton of Berne was confirmed in a plebiscite.
In , Switzerland enacted the second federal constitution which was accepted in a plebiscite. Except for the following restrictions, for the first time, this constitution allowed complete freedom of religion. In December , the University of Bern established a faculty for Catholic theology with the aim to train liberal-minded Catholic priests for the Jura region.
The Kulturkampf in Austria has roots dating back to the 18th. Emperor Joseph II launched a religious policy later called " Josephinism " advocating the supremacy of the state in religious matters. This resulted in far-reaching state control over the Catholic Church in Austria including e. In the concordat of , the culmination of Catholic influence in Austria, many of the Catholic Church's previous rights taken away under Joseph II were restored marriage, partial control of censorship, elementary and secondary education, full control of clergy and religious fund.
In and , after sanctioning the December constitution, the new cabinet appointed by emperor Francis Joseph undid parts of the concordat with several liberal reforms enacted in the so-called May Laws.
Against strong protests from the Catholic Church, the laws of 25 May and 14 May restored civil marriage, passed primary and secondary education into government hands, installed interconfessional schools and regulated interconfessional relations e. In a secret consistory, Pope Pius IX condemned the constitution of and the May laws as "leges abominabiles". In a pastoral letter on 7 September , bishop Franz-Josef Rudigier called for resistance to these May laws.
The letter was confiscated and he had to appear before court on 5 June which, for the first time, lead to public demonstrations of the Catholic population. On 12 July , the bishop was sentenced to a jail term of two weeks, but pardoned by the emperor.
The May laws provoked a serious conflict between state and church. Austria abrogated the concordat of in after the promulgation of papal infallibility and abolished it in altogether in In May , the Religious Act was officially recognized. The Kulturkampf in Italy is a very early example of the struggles between states and the Catholic Church; Italian liberals and democrats contributed substantially to the secularist project of modernity and had a strong effect on its own history.
Piedmont had a similar role in the unification of Italy as Prussia in Germany and it had been at the forefront in the struggle against the Catholic Church as far back as the 17th century under Victor Amadeus.
The Church rejected an edict of tolerating the Waldensians. In the ensuing dispute, Amadeus prohibited the publication of the pope's decree and many dioceses remained vacant. Amadeus demanded secular approval of clerical postings bishops, priests, monasteries and for ecclesiastical acts. Repeated negotiations brought no results, all the while the Vatican pronounced excommunications on secular officials and Amadeus countered with severe measures against clerics.
The acquisition of Sardinia in added more issues about Church rights on the island.

It was only under the following pope, Benedict XIII that negotiations were taken up again and an agreement was found in in which the Church relinquished some its previous rights. As a result of the revolutions of , King Charles Albert granted the Kingdom a constitution, summoned a liberal cabinet and assumed the leadership for the unification of Italy. That same year the Jesuits were banned, as in most Italian states, and a liberal school law was enacted.
