Easter Island – A Secret Hindu Civilization? David Childress from Ancient Aliens Reveals The Truth
This is the channel of David Childress:
I wanted to ask you specifically about this book: ‘The lost world of Cham’. Seems to be getting a lot of great reviews and it’s a very interesting book. I wrote it a few years ago, it’s one of my most recent books and it’s a book I was really excited to write. And it was the culmination of many years of study and my travels. You know, I’ve traveled a lot in India and across Asia and to Sri Lanka, Indonesia. I’ve been in to Thailand many times and to Cambodia and Laos and finally I made a trip to Vietnam. Vietnam? Yeah and that was where I really started to learn about the Cham and the Champa. And it really opened my eyes to what was going on, ultimately. What I discovered and what I write about in this book and the subtitle is the trans-pacific voyages of the Champa. Trans-Pacific? Trans-Pacific.. voyage so I realized there that first of all, that the Cham were these Shivite Hindu or Buddhists. Yeah they were followers of Hinduism and Buddhism? That’s right, and they call themselves the Shivites. Yeah and the Hinduism that they followed was Shivite (Shaivism) . In Vietnam? In Vietnam. And they were also in Cambodia too- and ultimately in Laos. what I discovered with the Cham as I researched them, I really discovered them so much in Vietnam. Around Da Nang. The Cham were not ever in the very far north of Vietnam, they were from about central Vietnam, north of – all the way to the south. To the Mekong delta and all that. And the Cham were not the same as the Vietnamese..who we call the ‘Dai Viet’. They are not today’s Vietnamese. That’s right. Today’s Vietnamese are almost all ‘Dai Viet’. They’re from the north, they are really of a Chinese ancestry.. they are very light skin like the Chinese. They really are a sect of Chinese just as the Thai people are.. pretty much the same. Both were invaders coming from China to the south. And in both cases what they did was they pushed out the Cham or Champa people. How did they look? The Cham people and there’s still a residual of them today in Vietnam and you have them in Cambodia. So the word Cambodia is also from the word Cham. Oh really? Yeah and they are there are darker skinned and they’re more like the people of southern India. They look like me? They look like you. Also Indonesians too.. Cambodians also but they have a more oriental look. Darker skin Vietnamese or Thai.
So those people they were megalithic. They also used the Keystone cuts. Those Keystone cuts which are these t-shaped cuts and you pour the metal clamps and yeah so when I went to the megalithic city near De Nang called ‘My Son’ . I talked about it here and I show pictures. There, I was looking at the ruins of My Son – a fantastic place and there was basalt blocks perfectly cut. They were amazing to me and I could see how what they were doing was very high-tech and megalithic and then I saw the Keystone cuts. And they were identical to Keystone cuts I had seen at Tiahuanaco and Bolivia. And other Keystone cuts I had seen in Peru at Ollantaytambo. And we have seen them in Cusco too. Yeah.
