An article by Chris Burke touches on one of the main contradictions that many conspiracy theorists have arrived at when pondering DIA. The murals, statues and “New World” time capsule are all held up as indicators of something sinister at the airport. But then, if there were indeed something sinister, why would the evil people advertise it so blatantly?

He writes:

The most obscure conspiracy theory is quite possibly the runway designs. The ariel shot resembling a swastika does seem bizarre. If there were underground death chambers hidden, why would one risk revealing it by arranging runways in these patterns?

Indeed. Full text below.

First William Tapley went viral and now Anderson Cooper gets in the mix on CNN. But let me point out that this very blog was noticing Mr. Tapley last year.

I don’t know how I missed these two videos, which were posted in January. They are of a presentation by a man who says he was a construction worker who helped build DIA in the early 90s and “explains his experience working on secret underground buildings connected to Denver International Airport that were completed before the DIA terminal was started.”

This is very interesting because it’s the first time I’ve seen video of a (claimed) first-hand account of the building of these “secret underground tunnels”— rather than the typical speculations of people who built their theories solely off of stuff they read on the internet. Unclear when the video was shot or who the speaker was. I’m going to take more time to watch these and post more thoughts later.

One immediate thought: The diagram he is using to describe these tunnels is very similar to this one drawn by Stew Webb many years ago, but not the same.

UPDATE: It was Stew Webb who took the video. He must’ve just gotten around to YouTube them recently. His site.

See video part 2 below.

This from Annalee Newitz at nerd blog io9.com:

Having recently been stranded in Denver Airport for 24 hours, I can tell you anecdotally that the place is hellish. Exit arrows point at each other instead of outside; corridors lead to nowhere; and security checkpoints seem to disappear mysteriously as you approach them. As you drive into the airport, you’re greeted by a giant horse with glowing red eyes, and one of the terminals is decorated with a massive statue of Anubis, the ancient Egyptian god of death.

Here’s another wonderful online video from our friend, the eminently-quotable  William Tapley, whose devotion to explaining the many “hidden images of paganism” in the art and sculptures at DIA is truly unsurpassed — and appreciated!

However, not everyone buys Tapley’s analysis of phallus-sis.  Namely the site Queerty.com, which ridicules him in the blog post Crazy Christian sees Penises all over Denver Airport!

Here’s what they wrote.
