Cranial deformation of discovered Marinduque skulls really genetic like those in Bolivia?

I have featured on this blog several times in the past the curious case of elongated skulls, also described as deformed skulls, found in some Marinduque caves in the 1860's to 1880's. It was then believed that such deformation could be explained in terms of head binding or artificial cranial deformation.

Now, this artificial cranial deformation hypothesis is being challenged with evidence of the existence of fetuses with elongated skulls - evidence that has been known to the academic community for 163 years!

If so, who were they, our ancestors, our ancient origins then? Or were they of totally different origins? Were they something else? 


"Like the skulls found in the island of Los Tres Reyes, (Marinduque), those of the cave of Pamin-Taan (also in Marinduque), were deformed... "- Marche, 1881

Prior to the French naturalist and explorer Antoine-Alfred Marche, it was the German-Russian naturalist Fedor Jagor who aroused public attention in the West in the 1860s with his discovery in Marinduque caves of deformed skulls. Up to that time nothing was known of such skulls in the oriental island world.

GIANT Discovery in Bolivia: Elongated Skulls NOT Caused By Artificial Cranial Deformation – It’s Genetic

By Nate Brown - ChristianTruther

A recent discovery in Bolivia sets the stage for uncovering the true history about the Giants. Elongated skulls are not just caused by Artificial Cranial Deformation, but rather it’s genetic.
The dark mysteries of ancient civilizations are covered up with the lies of the cabal, desperately grasping and attempting to cover up any findings that may deem the Bible to ring true. Their attempts at covering up the truth about the Giants referenced in the Bible will continue to fail.
Recently in Bolivia, a discovery was unearthed. A total of at least six bodies were uncovered; near a village called Patapatani in Bolivia. A Finnish research team found the remains in a Chullpa Aymara funerary tower, explicitly constructed for people of royal status.


The Research Team

Two of those bodies house extreme features; they display anomalous cranial deformation: freakishly large, elongated skulls. But, one of them has an elongated head that exceeds the proportions of an artificial cranial deformation. Their discovery means that the researchers could have discovered another “subspecies” of human beings. Or it could be an offspring of the giants.
To remove any doubt that this is just an isolated incident and in fact a genetic trait. Among the discoveries was a younger child who was no more than seven to nine months in development, she also had an elongated skull. According to Ken the radiologist on the team, he believes that the 10-13-year-old girl died during child birth.


The Elongated Skulls of 13 year old girl and her unborn child.

Elongated skulls are not only discovered in the Americas but have been unearthed all over the globe. The elongated skulls are approximately 25% larger and up to 60% heavier than the heads of regular human beings. Until now, it has long been thought that the elongated skulls were only artificial cranial deformation. However, with this discovery, it brings a new light to the very reality that there were larger beings that walked the earth, and their descendants housed features that set them apart from man. Some with six fingers and toes, others with potentially elongated skulls.


Elongated Skull VS Human Skull

According to the Bible, the Nephilim were larger than life; mankind looked as though they were grasshoppers compared to the giants. It is stated in the Genesis 6:4; the sons of God came into the daughters of men, and they bore children to them. After years of mixing, those giants would have gotten smaller, but their features still would set them apart from men. Again, one of those features could be the elongated skull because it is larger and heavier than the average human head.
There are several races of giants mentioned in the Old Testament; Rephaim, Anakim, Emim, Zuzim, Zamzummims, and Zophim. Some still have descendants that are active today. As it’s stated in the Bible; As it was in the days of Noah so shall it be in the days of the coming of the son of man.

Shocking! The elongated skulls discovered in Marinduque could have been natural from birth and may not have been artificially deformed as claimed

UPDATE

The DNA results are in for another uncovered tomb in Paracas; and the DNA results are mystifying. The standard “story” for how the Americas were populated is as follows; all of the ancestors of Native Americans, before the arrival of Columbus was via the Bering Strait. The following map is what academics use. The scholars believe that both sea and land routes were used for all migration.


Migration Map

The next map shows all of the genetic haplogroups which correlate with the above migration routes. More specifically, A,B,C,D,X. What is strange is that the DNA results from the Paracas skulls do not match any of the above haplogroups.

3 Intl agencies di magkasundo sa lokasyon, lakas at lalim ng lindol sa Pilipinas?

Di naman talaga bago yun. Ilang blog na rin ang naipost ko tungkol sa hindi pagkakatugma ng mga siyentipikong ahensya tungkol sa pagtatala nila ng mga lindol. 

Medyo kakaiba nga lang ang isang ito, dahil tila pati sa pinangyarihan ng lindol ay hindi pare-pareho ang record nila nang pumasok na ang media.


Fig. 1: "The USGS said the quake was 46.2 miles (74 km) deep but European quake agency EMSC put it at only 6.2 miles (10 km deep, which would increase its impact."

Noong nakaraan, di bababa sa dalawang beses na naipakita ko ang kamalian (o kapabayaan) ng Phivolcs sa pagsabing walang magiging pagkasira (damage) na inaasahan matapos ang isang malakas na lindol, at sa isa naman ay walang inaasahang aftershocks daw na magaganap. Mali sila on both points.

Ngayon naman, sa M 5.9 lindol na naganap bandang General Santos City noong Aug. 5, 2017, ganito ang naging report ng mga pangunahing ahensya sa mundo:

Sa Phivolcs: M5.9; Sa USGS: M5.8; Sa EMSC: M5.8
Depth: Phivolcs70 km; USGS: 73.3 km; EMSC 10 km (as reported by Reuters)

Sa ilang lumabas sa media na mapa ay lalo kang matataranta: Itinuturo ng Indian Express, halimbawa, base sa Reuters ang Zamboanga del Norte bilang pinangyarihan ng lindol sa halip na sa may General Santos City (Sarangani). Fig. 2.

Fig. 2: Map appearing in Indian Express with earthquake location
pointing to Zamboanga del Norte instead of Gen. Santos City
.
Mapapansin naman na ang dating depth na 10 km na ginamit ng EMSC ay naging 90 km na sa ngayon. Fig. 8.

Sa kabilang dako, hindi malimit na mangyari na sa loob ng isang araw ay may maganap na mga lindol mula M4.5 pataas mula Pilipinas hanggang Japan at mangyari ang mga lindol sa isang straight line mula Pilipinas hanggang Japan. Limang lindol ang naganap na M4.5 hanggang M5.9, tingnan sa Fig. 4.

Fig. 4: 5 earthquakes from M 4.5 upwards forming a straight line.
Ang ibig lamang sabihin nito: Huwag magpadalos-dalos sa pagpapaniwala sa mga balitang mapapanood, maririnig o mababasa natin. Kailangang ma-verify lahat. Masyadong magaling ang 'science' at media combined eh. 
Sa panglilihis kaya?


Fig. 3: Distance between General Santos City and Zambonga del Norte is ca 335 kms.

Marinduque: Rare earthquakes near volcano, giant squid found, rough seas and galleons


Just a reminder of the times we're in.
July 24 EQ; Aug 2 EQ. SW and S of the island.
May post din Aug 2 mandin about a nice giant white squid found in Cabuyo, Torrijos. Ang ganda!

Hindi mababa sa 8 galleons, 6 Japanese warships,1 Dutch ship, 1 Chinese junk, at mas maraming bilang ng inter-island vessels ang nakahimlay sa Tablazo de Marinduque. 
Hindi kayang higitan yan ng alinmang karagatan sa loob ng Pilipinas.
Mapunta raw ngani si Jack Sparrow at baka mas exciting dito. Bantayi!

Matinding record baya (Part 5): Mga pagtutuwid; hamon; pira-pirasong yaman mapupulot mo pa sa Marinduque

Matinding record baya (Part 5): Mga pagtutuwid; hamon; pira-pirasong yaman mapupulot mo pa sa Marinduque

'A Chart of the Channel in the Philippine Islands through which the Manila Galeon passes'. Published by the London Magazine, June 1763. Anong Ysla ang nasa gitna?

Ang isla ng Marinduque ay nakukulong sa gawing kanluran ng Mindoro, ang ika-pito sa pinakamalaking isla sa Pilipinas, at sa norte ay naroon naman ang mahabang baybayin ng southern Luzon. Ang baybayin namang ito ay nakabanat paikot mula sa gawing north-west ng Marinduque hanggang sa north-east, east at south-eastern na direksiyon (Bondoc Peninsula). Sa katimugang bahagi papuntang Visayas ay naroon naman ang mga isla ng Tablas, Sibuyan, Romblon, bahagi sa malayo pang south-east na direksiyon ang dulo ng mga isla ng Masbate at Ticao.

Sa bahagi ng Ticao lumalagos ang tubig na nagmumula sa Pacific Ocean na dumadaan muna sa pinakadelikadong lugar na layagan ng mga barko sa bahaging iyon, ang San Bernardino Strait na tinawag ng mga Kastilang Embocadero (Mouth).

Nabanggit na natin na ito ang mga lugar na nasa daanan ng mga bagyo, kaya't dagdagan pa ng mga bahura, bankota (coral shoals) at iba pang nakalubog na mga batong mapanganib sa mga barko, ito ang trade-route noong panahon ng mga Kastila na tinaguriang "isa sa pinakamahirap na mga tawiran para layagan sa buong mundo". 

Ang mga natirang labi at pagkalubog ng Manila galleons ay itinuturing na pumapangalawa lamang sa mga labi ng treasure ships sa Caribbean. Natala na ang unang galleong lumubog patungong Mexico ay ang San Pablo noong 1568, mismong barko ito ni Miguel Lopez de Legaspi.

Navigational Route Hazards Map.
Halos kalahati ng mga lumubog na Galleon sa bansa ay nakalibing sa Tablazo de Marinduque

Mula 1576 hanggang 1798 ay naitalang 20 galleons ang lumubog sa Pilipinas (Manila Galleons). Kung tutuusin ay halos kalahati dito, base sa mga dokumentong natalakay na, ang nangagsilubog sa tinawag ni Fr. Pedro Murillo na Tablazo de Marinduque. (tablazo: arm of the sea). 

Higit sa 40 galleons  naman kasama na ang mga ito, ang naglaho sa loob ng 250-taong kasaysayan ng Manila-Acapulco trade (Singer). Marami sa mga barkong ito ay dala ang pinakamayamang cargo na nailayag ng panahong iyon sa laot ng dagat. 

Ayon naman sa panulat ni Isorena, 41 'incidents' out of 59 ang naganap sa archipelago mula 1568-1806, at sa Embocadero raw na may 6 incidents lumubog ang pinakamarami. Ang 6 galleons na lumubog sa Marinduque sa isang araw ay hindi isinama dahil Manila-Acapulco-Manila routes lamang pala ang binilang niya at hindi isinama ang mga biyahe ng galleons within the archipelago. Dahil dito, 2 insidente lamang sa Marinduque ang nakatala sa kanya at ang ibang insidente ay wala. Kung lahat ng incidents ang pag-uusapan, may mga sakunang naganap sa Tablazo de Marinduque noong 1590, 1599, 1617, 1646 at 1659 (5 incidents), kung saan 9 na barko ang lumubog, 8 dito ay Spanish galleons at 1 Dutch ship. Nasa Part 2 & 3 ng salaysay na ito. Kung ganoon, masasabing sa Tablazo na ito pa rin lumubog ang pinakamaraming galleons, tama po ba?

Unang nabahura at nawasak ang San Ildefonso sa dagat na ito;

Ang mga pangalan ng mga galleon na lumubog sa Tablazo na ito ay nangangailangan pa ng karagdagang pananaliksik. Bilang kontribusyon ko sa pag-aaral tungkol sa bagay na ito, napangalanan ko na ng tama na ang unang barkong sumadsad sa isla ng Marinduque noong 1590, panahon ni Gomez Perez-Dasmarinas ay ang SAN ILDEFONSO. Dahil sa natuklasan kong ito ay nangangailangang ituwid ang mga naisulat na sa maraming literatura (na nagsasabing San Felipe raw), kung katotohanan ang pakay ng mambabasa.

Itutuwid ko na rin ang isang bahagi ng isa pang popular na aklat sa akda naman ni Tom Bennett, Treasure Ships of the Philippines. (Hindi siya nag-iisa, dahil ang ibang manunulat ay maling galleon naman ang sinasabi). Sa nasabing aklat, ang nakalagay ay "ship almiranta with no name' at iba pang teoriya niya. Idinikit pa rito ang natagpuang wreck site sa Tres Reyes (tinuring ng manunulat na 'galleon site', mali).

Maling paghaluin ang magkahiwalay na istorya ng dalawang barko - isang almiranta at isang ipinapalagay na Chinese junk (o isang prehistoric Philippine trade vessel man). At sasabihin ko ng paulit-ulit kahit ako'y maging makulit: San Ildefonso ang pangalan ng almirantang di nila mapangalanan, o maling pangalan ang sinasabi nila.

 Ito ang kopya ng nasabi ni Bennett:

La raw pangalan? Nahanap ko na po!

And sorry, maling-mali si Shirley Fish dito sa kanyang pamosong
 The Manila-Acapulco Galleons: The Treasure Ships of the Pacific.


Don Perez Dasmarinas sa isang guhit ni Felix Resureccion Hidalgo, 1896.
San Ildefonso ang almiranta ni Gomez Perez Dasmarinas nang bumiyahe siya mula Acapulco papunta sa Pilipinas 1590, bilang bagong Governador. Lulan ng San Ildefonso si Padre Pedro Chirino, isa sa mga sakay ng almirantang napadpad sa baybayin ng Marinduque na doo'y nawasak.
Tungkol sa malaking trahedya noong 1617, that's 400 years ago!

Naisulat na ang naganap sa Karagatan ng Marinduque noong 1617 sa panahon ni Geronimo de Silva ang "pinakamatinding trahedya na nangyari noong kapanahunan niya" nang lumubog ang anim na galleons sa lugar na ito. Kung ganoon, hindi mawawalan ng mga pinaglumaang dokumento tungkol dito maliban sa nahalukay kong sulat ni Alonso Fajardo de Tenza kay Felipe II, Agosto 10, 1619, kung saan kinumpirma niya ang pangyayari. May kakulangan nga lamang sa mga detalye ang kanyang naisulat na mahalaga naman para sa mga mag-aaral ng kasaysayan, lalo na sa mga interesado sa shipwrecks

(Dagdag: Habang sinusulat ko ito ay may nahukay pa akong isa pang liham na pinadala pa rin ni Fajardo kay Felipe II eksaktong isang taon o Agosto 10, 1618, bago niya ipinadala ang sulat na nabanggit sa itaas. Sa salin sa Ingles ng bahagi ng sulat ay ganito ang nakalagay:

Letter to Felipe III from Alonso Fajardo de Tenza, Agosto 10, 1618
"After our aforesaid misfortunes the six galleons that were to be fitted up at the shipyards were, while going there, overtaken by a hurricane, and were all wrecked, together with seven hundred persons whom, it is said, they were carrying—namely, natives, Sangleys, and Spanish sailors and shipbuilders, and some infantrymen—besides those who escaped, who were very few. Consequently, these islands were left without any naval forces and with few enough on land, by the above-mentioned disaster and the many private persons who died on the expedition to Sincupura or Malaca. The result was very great sorrow to the citizens, because of these troubles.."
 Sa sinulat naman ni Bennett, na nakuha naman niya sa iba pang source na nabasa ko na, napakaikli naman ng nasabi tungkol sa mga lumubog na galleong ito sa Tablazo ng Marinduque. Tungkol sa anim na barko, narito ang karagdagan niyang palagay:


"Marinduque wrecks Six large vessels, (assume 300 tons) said to be sunk in a tidal wave/typhoon off Marinduque.
14 Oct 1617 Six vessels lost, assume large vessels, Cargo not known."
- Treasure Ships of the Philippines, Tom Bennett
Para ito sa mga magpapatuloy pa, kung mayroon man, na maghanap pa ng mga kasagutan sa hindi dapat maitsepuwerang bahaging ito ng kasaysayan, ng pambansang kasaysayan ng Filipinas.)

Chinese junks o Philippine prehistoric boats?

Matatandaang ang unang sistematikong marine archaeology ay isinagawa sa Marinduque noong 1982, malapit sa Gaspar Island (Tres Reyes). Ito yung tinawag nilang 'merchant boat', hindi galleon, na may kargamentong "stoneware jars and covers, porcelain plates, dishes, saucers, and bowls". Ang mga porselana ay ipinalagay nilang Ming dynasty at ang mga stoneware jars naman ay "brown-glazed with relief dragon designs."

Nang sumunod na taon, sa Puerto Galera naman, na nasa kanluran ng Marinduque nakadiskubre din at nagsagawa ng isang marine archaeology. Naunahan nga lamang sila ng mga 'looters' ng mga artefacts na pinaniniwalaan namang nanggaling sa 'Siam' (Thailand).

Tres Reyes Islands at Mount Malindig
Looters

Ang totoo, naunahan din ng mga 'looters' sa Marinduque ang mga taga National Museum. Sa ano pa mang kadahilanan, nagsagawa muli ng "reexcavation" sa Marinduque wreck site sa may Gaspar island. Ayon sa mga pahayag ng mga kinauukulan ito raw ay para malaman kung mayroon pang 'archaeological data' na makukuha mula sa wreck site. Ang nangyari, walang nakitang ano pa mang natitirang bahagi ng barko doon.

Mayroon daw isasagawang report noong mga 1980s kung saan isasama ang mga resulta ng 'terrestrial archaeology' sa Marinduque at ang papel ng Marinduque sa sinaunang maritime trade network sa Pilipinas.

Isang depiksyon ng karakoa. Lumitaw sa The Philippine Islands, 1493-1898 
Vol.16, 1904 Blair and Robertson
Tila may kahirapang mahanap ang report na iyon. Ganunpaman, noong 1978 pa lamang, nadiskubre na ang tinatawag na mga Agusan prehistoric boats na anila ay patunay na ang mga komunidad sa mga baybayin ng Pilipinas ay aktibo na sa maritime trade. Ginawa ang mga balangay para sa malayuang biyahe, at sa isang balangay na nahukay, kasya ang 25 katao. Isa pa, may tinawag ang mga Bisaya noon na karakoa, bangkang gamit sa labanan na ginagamit din nila noon bilang trading vessel.


Isang 14th century Yuan junk naman. 

World War II, nang matapos ang digmaan hanggang sa kasalukuyan

Hindi pa rin mahuhuli sa listahan ang Karagatan ng Marinduque kung ang pag-uusapan naman ay bilang ng mga Japanese warships na lumubog dito. Nalaman na natin na bago pa bumalik si Douglas McArthur dito para sa kanyang "I shall return", may lihim na operasyon na ang US Navy sa lahat ng sulok ng dagat Marinduque.
Sabi pa rito: "Elements of the Western Visayan Task Force from southwestern Mindoro had secured the northern and eastern coasts of Mindoro and had seized Marinduque Island, thirty miles east of Mindoro." (RR Smith)

Kahit naganap na ang pagbagsak ng Corregidor ay patuloy pa rin ang rekurida ng mga US submarines dito. Pumapel pa nga ang hinangaang USS Trout submarine na sa gitna ng labanan ay nakapagdala pa ng mga ammunition para sa US forces sa Corregidor at pagbalik niya sa Pearl Harbor, hakot naman ang 20 toneladang gold bars at silver pesos - bagamat mas marami pa doon ang naiwan sa Corregidor. Kung saan napunta ang lahat ng naiwang tone-toneladang ginto't pilak na namumulaklak ay palaisipan pa rin hanggang ngayon. 


Anim na Japanese ships ang nakahimlay sa ilalim ng dagat dito sa Marinduque. Dapat ay walo pero bagamat nabombahan ang dalawa ay nakalusot pa rin papuntang Manila Bay. Hindi maiiwasan ang katanungan kung may dala kayang mga bara ng ginto ang alinman sa mga barkong lumubog dito noong panahon ni Yamashita

Bakit kaya naman hanggang sa kasalukuyang panahon ay panay pa rin ang paghuhukay na ginagawa sa ilang baybayin ng Marinduque at hindi sa dagat? Kung may makukuhang ginto, marahil ay may mga ginintuang puso naman ang makakahukay kaya para ibigay sa mahihirap? Kaya? Sabi kasi ni Jack Sparrow, "not all treasure is silver and gold, mate."

Si Jack Sparrow at kanyang pilosopiya.
Bago pa sumabog ang Ikalawang Digmaang Pandaigdig at nang matapos ito, hindi humupa ang paglubog ng mga barko. Bagyo o human error ang dahilan. Puro inter-island vessels naman, mga 15 ang naitala ang mga pangalan, at ang iba ay hindi na marahil malalaman. Lalong nakakalungkot na dito pa sa karagatang ito naganap ang banggaan at paglubog ng isang passenger-ship at oil tanker na kumitil sa buhay ng 4,386 katao.

USS Trout at pagdiskarga ng mga ginto't pilak.

Piraso ng paraiso

Maraming sasakyang pandagat noong wala pang naitalang kasaysayan, maraming galleon, warships, mga trade at inter-island vessels ang nakalibing na sa pusod ng dagat sa puso ng Pilipinas. Bawat isa ay may kanya-kanyang istorya na hindi pa natin batid lahat. Dahil karamihan sa mga shipwrecks ay hindi pa rin natin batid ang mga eksaktong lugar na pinaglubugan at ang pangalan ng iba ay hinahanap pa. 

Sa tindi ng sinapit ng mga sakay ng mga barkong ito, sa sobrang dami ng mga nangamatay, hindi naman dapat malimutan ng husto ang mga kabanatang ito ng kasaysayan ng Tablazo de Marinduque.

Malaking hamon pa rin sa mga marine archaeologists, mga divers, mga mananaliksik at mga mag-aaral ng kasaysayan ang bagay na ito. 

Para naman sa karamihan ng mga bumibisita sa isla ng Marinduque, bagamat nabago nang dahan-dahan ang mga baybayin nito dahil sa mga bagyo, hampas ng alon at hangin, at ibat-ibang gawain ng mga tao, naroon at nakabaon pa rin sa buhanginan ang mga pira-pirasong bahagi ng mga sinaunang porselana, banga, alahas at kung ano-ano pang natangay ng mga alon sa dalampasigan, nakahalo sa mga sigay at mga batong buhay.


Mga piraso ng shards sa dalampasigan, mapupulot mo pa rin.
Iyon ang maiiuwi mong bahagi ng kasaysayan ng mistulang paraisong ito bago ito maging simbulo ng kabuktutan at kasakiman sa modernong kasaysayan natin. Bago tuluyang lamunin ng mga elemento ang lahat ng ito at sukdulang ihagis ng mas malayo pa sa ating nakaraan.


Bahagi ng barkong tinubuan na ng corals.

SHEARWATER
NINETEEN DROWNED

U. S. Customs Steamer Lost in a Typhoon in the Philippines.

Manila, July 17,—A severe typhoon swept over the southern islands June 14 and 15. The United States customs steamer SHEARWATER was lost off the Island of Marinduque. Nineteen of her crew, including three Americans were drowned. - Manitoba Morning Free Press, July 18, 1902

LANAO
Among the many incidents of the great storm was the wrecking of the steamer LANAO off the southwest coast of Marinduque with the loss of one life and one engineer seriously injured. The vessel belonged to Messrs. Findlay, Richardson and Company and was engaged in the lumber trade, plying between Manila and the Company's mills at Kolambugan, Mindanao.
The vessel was carrying two passengers at the time, one of whom, curious to say, was Mr. William Scott, the manager of the company. It seems to be little short of a miracle that the officers, crew and passengers, with the exception of one Filipino sailor, should have been saved, as it meant the survivors leaping in the darkness from the bow of the doomed vessel to a huge rock near the mainland while the ship was being buffeted by the waves as the tempest raged in all its fury. - North China Herald, January 8, 1916.

Nilusob na ng Hapon ang overseas territories sa Asia ng United Kingdom, Netherlands at United States.

Walang ipinatupad kaagad na plano ang US para depensahan ang Pilipinas kaya naiwan ang huli sa ere. Bagamat may mga lokal na puwersang lumalaban, madaling naokupa ng mga Hapon ang teritoryo - at ang Marinduque. 

Pagdating ng 1943 ay naging aktibo na ang palihim na operasyon ng US sa dagat ng Marinduque gamit ang mga submarino at pag-atake sa mga warships ng Hapon na umiikot sa Silangan, Kanluran, Hilaga at Timog ng isla ng Marinduque - sa gitna ng Pilipinas.

MEIKAI MARU and INDUS MARU

USS Gar (Lt.Cdr. P.D. Quirk) torpedoes and sinks the Japanese transport ships MEIKAI MARU (3197 BRT) and INDUS MARU (4361 BRT) between Dumali Point, Mindoro and Marinduque Island, Philippines in position 13.07N, 121.49E.

Another account of the same incident:
On May 15th, 1943, US submarine Gar (SS-206) attacks a Japanese convoy screened by escort vessel Matsuwa, at the eastern entrance of Verde Island passage, and sinks Japanese army cargo ships Meikai Maru and Indus Maru between Dumali Point, Mindoro, and Marinduque Island, P.I.

ISUZU MARU
USS Trout (Lt.Cdr. A.H. Clark) torpedoes and sinks the Japanese transport ship ISUZU MARU (2866 BRT) off the north coast of Marinduque Island, Philippines in position 13.36N, 121.49E.
ISUZU MARU, army cargo steamship owned by Hinode Kisen K.K.; Built in 1939 by Tsurumi Seitetsu Kosen.
Ang USS Trout naman ay isang US submarine. Nakapagpalubog ng 23 barko ng kalaban, at nakasira ng 6 pa.  Nakapagdala rin ito ng ammunition para sa mga US forces sa Corregidor, at nakapagpuslit ng 20 tonelada ng gold bars at silver pesos mula sa PH currency reserve papuntang Pearl Harbor.


Dito napalubog ang Isuzu Maru base sa tala.

Ang steamship Isuzu Maru ay tinira (apat na torpedo ang pinakawalan), at pinalubog ng USS Trout sa Kanluran ng Marinduque. Noong April 1944, wala nang narinig sa Trout at ipinalagay na lamang na naglaho na ito.

MEIZAN MARU
(Meizan Maru ang pinakahuling dagdag sa talaan ng mga lumubog na warships sa Marinduque noong WW2).
Cruising in the area, submarine USS Grayling recorded her last kill, the passenger-cargo MEIZAN MARU on 27 August. After passing Tres Reyes Islands her target turned towards the southern coast of Marinduque.
Grayling hit the target, with "several rounds of 20 MM fire hit the target forward and amidship" and the Maru ran aground.

Grayling was not heard from again after 9 September. She was scheduled to make a radio report on 12 September and all attempts to contact her failed. Grayling was officially reported "lost with all hands" 30 September 1943.

186 PERSONS RESCUED FROM GROUNDED SHIP

MANILA, June 25-UP— The master of an American freighter told  Saturday night how his crew used small boats to remove 186 panicky persons mostly women and children from a grounded vessel.
Capt. James Brummelen of the Steel Admiral said everyone was removed from the Philippine coastal vessel NEPTUNO in the three-hour dawn rescue Friday. There were 111 women and 75 children aboard.
It was "simple luck" that led to the rescue in the Sibuyan Sea south of here Brummelen said afterwards he brought all survivors to Manila aboard his 8,000-ton freighter Friday night. The first clue he had that a ship was in distress was blinking lights in the distance.
The 680-ton Neptuno, a hole torn in its bottom, was perched atop a reef just off Marinduque Island.  His crew removed the passengers and crew In small boats on a basis of "women and children first” he said.  “Visibility was very poor and the sea current in the area was rather unusually tricky” the captain added...- Galveston Daily News June 26, 1955

M/V DON JUAN
400 LOST AS TANKER RAMS SHIP
MANILA,'Philippines (DPI) – An oil tanker rammed a crowded inter-island passenger ship in the Tablas Strait in the central Philippines. The Coast Guard reported 400 people aboard were missing.  The Coast Guard said more than 500 passengers and crew members were rescued by passing ships in the area, about 120 miles south of Manila.
The government-owned Philippines News Agency said there were 10 people known dead in the collision, but the government radio listed the death toll at seven. The tanker, the government-owned TACLOBAN CITY, reportedly was empty and was said to have left the scene of the collision without rendering assistance to those in the water. The passenger ship, the MV DON JUAN, sank near Mindoro Island.

The 1,349-ton Don Juan left Manila's South Harbor Tuesday afternoon for the central Philippine city of Bacolod with about 890 passengers including a complement of 19 officers and 69 crewmen.  Lloyd's Register of Shipping lists the Don Juan as licensed for only 736 passengers.
The coast guard said it had sent underwater rescue teams to scour the waters off Maestre de Campo for more survivors.
A Philippine air force plane also was on standby at the Gasan airport in Marinduque Island near Mindoro to ferry injured passengers...- Chicago Daily Herald,  April 23, 1980

DONA PAZ; MT VECTOR

4,386 DEAD IN ASIA'S TITANIC; 

World's greatest maritime tragedy - IMO; 
Deadliest peacetime maritime disaster of the 20th century - TIME


Dona Paz
Walang bagyo. Lumubog ang MV DONA PAZ, isang barkong pampasahero matapos ng banggaan sa isang oil tanker MT VECTOR noong December 20, 1987. Tinatayang 4,386 katao ang namatay at 24 lamang ang nakaligtas. Ito na ang pinaka-nakamamatay na peacetime maritime disaster sa kasaysayan ng mundo. Tinawag ito ng TIME magazine na 'deadliest peacetime maritime disaster of the 20th century'.

Nagpalabas noong August 25, 2009, ng isang documentary ang National Geographic Channel tungkol sa Dona Paz na ang titulo ay Asia's Titanic. Panoorin dito. (Kung ihahambing, ang RMS TITANIC na lumubog sa North Atlantic Ocean noong 1912, ay may tinatayang 2,224 na pasahero at crew, at higit sa 1,500 ang namatay).

Ang ruta ng Dona Paz na pag-aari ng Sulpicio Lines ay Manila-Tacloban-Catbalogan-Manila at vice versa dalawang beses isang linggo. Mga 10:30 ng gabi noong magpapasko, Dec. 20, 1987, nasa may Dumali Point, sa Tablas Strait, malapit sa Marinduque nang maganap ang banggaan habang tulog ang karamihan ng mga pasahero. Ang MT Vector oil tanker ay nanggaling sa Bataan papuntang Masbate. May dala itong 8,800 barrels ng gasolina at iba pang petroleum products na pag-aari ng Caltex Philippines.



Ayon sa ilang nakaligtas, ang apoy ay madaling nagliyab at kumalat sa barko, gayundin, ang dagat na nakapaligid sa barko ay umaapoy rin. Ang lalim ng dagat sa bahaging ito ng Tablas Strait ay 545 meters (1,788 ft), lugar na tirahan ng maraming pating.



Lumubog ang Dona Paz sa loob ng dalawang oras matapos ang banggaan. Ang Vector naman ay lumubog sa loob ng apat na oras. Ang liwanag na likha ng umaapoy na dagat ay napanood ng mga nasa western at southwestern coast ng Marinduque habang nagaganap ang trahedya.

MV VIVA ANTIPOLO

Walang bagyo. Nagkaroon ng pagsabog sa engine room, nasunog at lumubog ang ferry M/V VIVA ANTIPOLO VII, pag-aari ng Viva Shipping, Inc. sa may Dalahican Fish Port, Port of Lucena. Bumiyahe ang barko mula sa Santa Cruz, Marinduque kaya't karamihan sa lulan nito ay mga taga-Marinduque. Nangyari ang insidente mga 30 minuto na lamang bago makarating ang barko sa Dalahican.

Base sa tala ng Board of Marine Inquiry, 62 ang nasawi sa trahedya, 10 ang nawawala at 142 ang nakaligtas. Mula 1606 hanggang 1998 may 150 bilang ng mga barko sa ibat-ibang panig ng mundo na lumubog sa ganito ring petsa.
