I do not think that Osmanagic, who is an excellent businessman, would be so naive and stupid as to do so. Just imagine the value of this formula in construction."

From Paolo Debertolis, alias "Pablito", dentist and big fan of pseudoscience, about his interlocutor who was trying to understand why the "reports" from the Foundation were not translated or not published:

From Semir Osmanagic, talking of "pyramids" that are 700 meters above present sea level:

"For now we have two very important indicators that pyramids were under water for several hundred years. Only such occurrence can be related to the melting of the ice at the end of the last Ice age 12.000 years ago."
