, but if I was a betting man I would bet my life on the fact that Freemasons had absolutely nothing to do with the original workings on Oak Island.
how am i suppose to believe that.

bonnie wrote:you may think its a great group to be a member of. i am sure it may indeed be. like my dad tells me they do community charity. thats excellant for a group to do that.

And I would still bet my life that Freemasons had absolutely nothing to do with the original workings on Oak Island, but I don't want to argue about it any more. In fact, I'm going to make this my last post concerning Freemasonry.
But speaking of Knights Templar, Freemasonry and Oak Island (among other things), here would be an interesting vacation tour! If anybody decides to take the tour, at one point you will be within a few miles of my home - so be sure to let me know you are coming so we can meet up.
1. T. Penn leary may be right, but he may be wrong too. There is no other reference to them using the tackle block that I am aware of.
3. The stone was last seen, in Halifax, in what is now the Halifax Seed Company store. It was not used in a shoe factory, it was use in a book bindery business where according to testimony, the characters were worn off the stone and no longer visible.
6. The parchment sits in a safe, not on display.... C14 has not been done on it, but it has been analysed by experts.
7. That the drilled stone “disappeared” is sort of a teaser. It is a huge rock and certainly did not walk away, unless those pesky Leprechauns took it. I think the tide either washed it off the coffer dam, or it simply rolled over covering the holes.
11 & 12. Whether or not the Annapolis Stone has any connection to OI is yet to be discovered. Remember, Nova Scotia’s earliest known settlement was 1604, two years before the discovery of the Annapolis Stone.
13. There is another coin to ponder, supposedly found by a chap with the surname of Martin in the 1940's. There is a picture of it here on the forum, perhaps one of our keener colleagues could direct you to it.
14 and 15. Mrs. Restall’s daughter is supposed to be writing a book about her Dad’s time on OI. I’ll hold comments on the china until then.
16. Blankenship says the scissors were not found under one of the box drains, they were found close by. None the less, they are old, identified as Spanish, and a tantalizing clue.
19. Ok, picture this, Toronto airport, summer of 2004....Funny enough?
Coconut fibre can still be found on OI if you know where to look. It’s at the public archives too.
While excavating in Smith’s Cove, Restall found a stone with 1704 marked on it. Many believe it was a hoax rock planted by earlier workers, but, there is no conclusiveness to that.
As for a role for me in the story you are writing, why can’t I be the guy with a bull whip and fedora being chased by angry natives (who) gets the pretty girl in the end.
TBH, I'm not sure how accurate even the best psychic would be with, say, a coin that fell out of a chest that's lain on a sandy beach for 300 years. But, that's where the imagination of the writer comes in, the duct-tape of a good storyteller.

Yes, please! Anyone out there able to recall what thread it was in? Funny that it's not mentioned in any of the books I've read, which now includes Harris and MacPhie's "Oak Island and its Lost Treasure," and the Fanthorpes' "Mysteries of the Temple Treasure and the Holy Grail."
