Theory points to possible connection with nearby Birch Island

HALIFAX, Nova Scotia: Wednesday, July 12th, 2006 - - For the past two centuries, the tunnels of Nova Scotia’s Oak Island have piqued the imagination of historians and treasure hunters alike. Now, a new theory by First Nations researcher Keith Ranville may add fresh speculation to the mystery. Based on a unique reading of an inscription once found in the “Money Pit,” Mr. Ranville believes that the answer to the riddle may be found on nearby Birch Island.

Oak Island, located on the scenic Mahone Bay about an hour’s drive south of the provincial capital of Halifax, has been associated with buried treasure since the late 18th century. Local settlers reportedly found a ship’s tackle block hanging from a tree branch, overhanging a large depression in the ground. Early efforts to dig down failed when the diggers encountered layers of timber every 10 feet. In the ensuing generations, several organized excavation attempts have drilled down nearly 200 feet, en route encountering some artifacts within the staggered layers of logs, clay, putty, charcoal, flagstones and most perplexingly, coconut husks. Among the scores of enthusiastic treasure hunters was a young Franklin Roosevelt, one of the investors in a 1909 excavation attempt.

During the earlier diggings of 1800’s, the tunnel had become flooded by seawater – which many believed was the result booby trap being sprung – thus complicating further digging since then. A drilling effort in the mid 1800’s was said to have uncovered fragments of a gold chain. In 1971, a camera was lowered into the pit and reportedly captured images of wooden chests and human remains.

One of the most fascinating artifacts from the pit was said to be a flat stone recovered at the 90 foot depth, carrying a mysterious inscription. A fragment of stone with similar symbols was found nearby in Smith’s Cove in the 1930’s. The stone tablet itself has gone missing, but a record of its symbols remains. Until now, the consensus is that the symbols are a code translated as “forty feet below two million pounds are buried.” However, Keith Ranville’s theory offers a different interpretation as to the stone’s symbols, which could lead to a new explanation of the Oak Island mystery.

“I believe these symbols have been incorrectly assumed to stand for something else. In the First Nations tradition that I’m a part of, we believe symbols should simply be looked at in and of themselves, rather than thinking of them as codes that have to be cracked,” Mr. Ranville explained. “In the pictograms of Cree Salavics, for example, the images are meant to be descriptive, not abstract.” Using this approach, Mr. Ranville examined the Oak Island symbols and found what may be a set of instructions about a tunnel system involving both Oak Island and nearby Birch Island.

For example, the stone inscription begins with a triangle symbol, which is repeated throughout. Mr. Ranville believes that this represents nearby Birch Island, which has a distinctly triangular clearing on its north shore. Likewise, a symbol showing a circle divided into two hemispheres can be thought of as representing north/south directional markers. A series of dots in singles, pairs and triplets may be quantitative symbols.

Examining all the symbols in this way, Mr. Ranville believes that the symbols on the Money Pit’s stone tablet are actually technical instructions describing the location and layout of a possible underground network involving both Oak Island and Birch Island. “There was a fragment of another stone tablet that was found on Oak Island’s Smith Cove in the 1930’s,” Mr. Ranville explained. “It too has these types of symbols, but one in particular appears to be a Greek symbol designating ‘underwater door’. In conjunction with the other symbols, I believe this points to underwater doors and additional shafts on Birch Island itself.” Smith’s Cove is on the part of Oak Island that is closest to Birch Island, and is said to have yielded several artifacts itself over the years.

“Based on the inscribed symbols, I think we should be looking at Oak Island and Birch Island together in order to solve the mystery. If Birch Island proves to have underwater doors and tunnels around its triangular clearing, then it would be a huge step forward in our understanding of what Oak Island is all about.”

There have been many, occasionally bizarre, theories as to what the Oak Island tunnels may contain: a Masonic vault containing the Holy Grail, Viking or Pirate booty, Inca treasure, the French Royal Crown Jewels, payroll for colonial British soldiers or even the secret writings of Francis Bacon. Mr. Ranville prefers not to speculate. “Those are interesting and sometimes funny theories, but I’d rather just look at the evidence that we do have, and go from there.”

Mr. Ranville is a self-taught researcher born in Manitoba. While living in Vancouver, he became acquainted with the Oak Island mystery and began studying it. In October 2005, he relocated to Nova Scotia to further research and advance his theories on the subject.

Both Oak Island and Birch Island are private property, and access must be sought by permission of the landowners.

The Oak Island stone triangle is the element to unlocking the Oak Island treasure secrets Da Vinci Code styles the seven degrees is the first step in solving the Oak Island encryption.

The Oak Island stone triangle points north with a dividing stone line through it' directional straight up to the money pit. For some reason the stone triangle also pointed seven degrees west of the money pit, I believe this seven degrees off was because the stone triangle could line up with the two drilled stones at a right angle' the drilled stones were found north and north east of the money pit.

Friday News October 25, 2007—Series of Oak Island treasure theories amazingly make to the table these days from avidly forwarded new information built off known Oak Island clues it does seem Da Vinci code like, by the re-examining of the Oak Island stone triangle it opened new viable plausibility’s on solving this treasure mystery.

Treasure hunting is about seeking bullion stash to some treasure hunters this is where the professional academics don’t see treasure hunting as a legitimate real professional field there is no Oak Island treasure hunting sanctions or guidelines to follow, treasure hunting is un-orthodox as to NASA to the S.E.T.I program yet millions get funded into the search for extraterrestrial life and nothing gets put into treasure hunting I am not saying S.E.T.I is not a worthy cause but if what may be discovered about our past could maybe effect our future then the search for our origins is equally important as to find other life on other worlds, if not more important to us.

Theories for possible suspects to my Oak Island Da Vinci code ciphers is plausible and it adds to my unique concepts discoveries, treasure hunting would be boring if you couldn’t add your personal label to your own treasure hunting discoveries with your own personal beliefs as who maybe responsible for the Oak Island treasure mystery that I am in subject too as a researcher people don’t really understand the meaning of being a researcher it means a person that re looks this is what I do very well I do things until I get it right or come up with five ideas and brainstorm them and then so on?

W hat is the main technique that I do is that I study at night until I get drowsy and fall a sleep in the morning as I start my day ideas pop in my head right out of the blue I quickly jot them down the ideas are maybe not be what I was working on that night before it maybe from a couple nights before that never the less its from the same technique dreams is just a bigger field area to solve problems you can say my ciphers were derived from another world this is what makes my work so appealing to many people everyone dreams, many people have the same abilities as I do this is why so many people can identify with the logic of my ciphers.

I was always fascinated with Edgar Cayce the sleeping prophet and how he would look for answers in his sleep and how he believed he lived before even to the point he thought he was a Atlantis citizen. I also believe I was in Nova Scotia in another life as I was in the Mahone bay N.S area I often had the feeling I was there before like a Deja Vu feeling ever so often the peoples characteristics in Nova Scotia seemed so familiar to me I believe people keep heritage with them weather they are aware of it or not if I was going to get any answers to this treasure mystery I had to have to get to know people in the Nova Scotia area doing that was very helpful to my research when you are in Rome you do as the Romans and that I did I meet so many people when I was in Nova Scotia I feel my spirit is still out there now that I am back home in Vancouver and safe travel has certainly been my teacher I cant believe I accomplished so much in so little time there seems like I had a guardian looking out over me on my journey's I put a lot in to this mystery and I do not expect anything back notoriety for my work is all I ask, Black Beard once said all he wanted was to be remembered and that he was unfortunately he lost his head in his quest.

By looking at my discoveries there is something there worth investigating further I still need to do things to confirm my research I like discussing my research to people and to tell it like it is I am getting a bigger audience these days hopefully the right people will come along soon and help me, then I could speed up this treasure hunting process my work is not done if I was to explain things what is happening now two years ago about my research it could not be understood this is why I did it in lessons to this point the people that were responsible for this Oak Island treasure mystery were extremely intelligent they encrypted the Oak Island secrets in lessons so the right person could solve it not someone or people with alternative motives.
to be continued…

The Oak island stone triangle does seems like it was made by a Mayan Culture or (Mesoamerica) by examining the oak island stone triangle and its cipher to a pyramid it perceives stealth in length if you view the pyramids in south America they are very similar to the Oak island stone triangle cipher of a pyramid. The Mayan Mathematics were above equivalent to many cultures. A king was found beneath in a pyramid in South America he had a jade mask, this King is believed to be a important part to (arm chair) archaeologist, but no real treasure was found in the pyramid tomb. I believe that this king had knowledge that was in his hands? What this King had was a round stone in one hand and a square block stone in the other hand and the jade mask was for his unvailment of him in his new life. I believe these possessions was all this Mayan King needed to travel into his next life to where his worldly possessions are awaitting for him.

The Oak Island stone triangle cipher is based on square and circle could this method of cipher' be the same as this Mayan Kings knowledge that he had in hand to travel into his next life। The new simplistic translation of the Oak Island stone triangle does have the same square and circle philosophy। The Mayan Mathematics is thought to be based on proportions or a universal unfounded equation, the Oak Island stone triangle looks to have a Mayan connection as well, this famous Birch Island triangle can hold the secret knowledge to forgotten ancient civilizations.

It would be hard for me to think that these South American Mesoamerican cultures that had knowledge of the stars, calendar and the alignment of the suns winters and summer highest points long before the Europeans believed the world was flat to believe they had no means to travel long distance? Geez these South American culture’s built phenomenal large Egyptian style Pyramids easier than ant hills and had water running up hill with water pressure also they had a city built on a lake or on wetlands navigating through any Atlantis aquatics would be a stone through for the Mesoamericans to elude the Spanish conqueror Cortez that marched on there cities and conquered them with brutal tatics by using hostages of royal of Kings ect.

Time to travel The Mesoamerican believed in prophecy and believed the sun guided them and they made life sacrifices rituals in belief it would please the sun gods. There must have been some thing to there rituals visions they new when to get going when the going was good, this does sound like the Templar situation they new when to get the heck out of Europe and there elusive exodus was mysteriously unknown to where? This is the same with the Mesoamerican culture there are similarities in these events of these mysterious cultures.

How could of the Templars have crossed the Atlantic when the world was believed to be flat and how could the Mesoamericans travel north up the Atlantic sea board to a cold climate-isolated Island, but these journeys may have been made for a unification of spiritual treasures for reasons unknown or for a salvation to what they had in covenant. Nothing seemed easy for them or for someone that was for them, hopefully they can find salvation with today’s civilizations with our technologies and they’re not so primitive knowledge, which would be an ultimate unification that may serve us well.

The Oak Island treasure pit is commonly known as one of Canada’s most infamous un-solved mystery, many Canadians are oblivious of its existence. There are many people involved in solving this mystery the internet has new different takes on who might have the right answers to this treasure mystery, but someone just might have the answer put away in there attic or garage. Canada is a vast place of endless heritage there is a good chance someone has some important Oak Island information unknowingly.

I am just putting this out there but does anybody have family members-relatives, generation ancestor’s photo albums meaning old photographs from the 1920’s in Halifax N.S Canada the mysterious money pit stone was placed in the front window at a book binding company called Creighton's book store the stone was displayed around 1928 in Halifax there must be photographs of this inscriptive stone out there hundred’s of people were believed to have viewed this mysterious inscriptive stone if anyone has this photo information in there attic or garage or other potential Oak Island information please explain, so take a look you might hold the key to solving this treasure mystery in the mean time does anyone have family Oak Island stories or personal theories of their own in relation to this 212 year old un-solved treasure mystery if so do tell..

Replica of how the Oak Island Money pit stone would of looked I am seeking information on this mysterious stone for authenticy for research porposes.
