De Dominique Jongbloed, à propos des analyses pour lesquelles il réclame 10 000 euros à ses fans :

La présidente de NORDSUD INSTITUTE propose de soumettre également les frais de laboratoires au gouvernement de Bosnie-Herzégovine ... Comme un fan avisé l’a dit quelque part dans les pages :" après tout c’est surtout eux qui bénéficieront des retombées économiques"...

Oui, bien sûr... Coût estimé des inondations et glissements de terrain en Bosnie : 2 milliards d’euros (http://balkans.courriers.info/article25149.html). Ils n’auront sûrement rien de plus pressé que de payer des analyses de cailloux dont tous les géologues locaux ont déjà confirmé qu’il s’agissait de grès ou de conglomérat...

De Jacques Grimault, auteur du film "La Révélation des Pyramides", parlant de "l’écriture des chiffres" léguée selon lui aux hommes par les mystérieux "bâtisseurs" des pyramides :

C’est parce que ces prêtres écrivaient uniquement dans le sable, l’argile ou sur des tablettes de cire lorsqu’ils s’entretenaient de choses sacrées et secrètes, qu’elle n’a pas pu être observée d’un point de vue documentaire dans les fouilles éthno-archéologiques

C’est vrai après tout, on n’a jamais retrouvé qu’à peine plus de 500 000 tablettes d’argile ou de cire antiques...
