DID JOSHUA MAKE THE SUN STAND STILL?


CHAPTER 1: Finding the Science and Wisdom Behind the Biblical Texts
INTRODUCTION:
In the Book of Joshua, chapter 10, verses 12 and
13, it states:
10:12: Then spoke Joshua to the LORD in the day
when the LORD gave the Amorites over to the men of
Israel and he said in the sight of Israel "Sun, stand
thou still at Gibcon and thou Moon in the valley of
Ai'jalon."
10:13: And the sun stood still, and the moon stayed
until the nation took vengeance on their enemies. Is this
not written in the Book of Jashar? The sun stayed in the midst of heaven, and
did not hasten to go down for about a whole day.
I have long studied the book of Joshua, and have wondered where did that
reference to stopping the sun and moon came from? Since about 1971, I have
been studying the bible in depth, since I first
discovered numerous references to what could
only be called actual ancient advanced science -but misinterpreted as "miracles" by an
uneducated populace who didn't understand the
science involved. Try to explain to ancient
people how a cellphone or TV works and they
would call it a "miracle."
Much of ancient science, such as building
circular calculators, like Stonehenge, to find the
relationship between the rotation rates of the
sun and moon, to predict events such as
earthquakes and severe adverse weather
patterns, actually predate by thousands of years,
most of the biblical stories. Despite what most
people might believe, advancements in fig 1. Joshua commands the sun
astronomy, geology and mathematics did occur and moon to stand still
beginning around 5,000 to 8,000 BC and
actually show up much later as misinterpreted stories in such ancient texts as
the biblical scrolls of the ancient Hebrews.
HOW OLD ARE THE BIBLICAL TEXTS?
For example, I have found and can prove that the first five books of the
Bible, called the "Torah" or "Books of Moses" by the Hebrews, were not
written until about 600 BC, and not written much earlier, as is claimed, by

Moses in 1300 BC. Unlike biblical archaeologists who use comparative


linguistics for dating texts, I have found something in the texts, which
absolutely dates the text.
If the Torah texts had said that Adam's son, Cain, had called his brother,
Abel, on his cellphone, you would know that the text had to be written after
1980 AD, since there were no cellphones before that. The biblical text doesn't
say that, but there are numerous factual anachronisms which are just as
accurate for dating the text.
ACCURATELY DATING THE TORAH TEXTS
It seems I am the first one to notice that there are numerous references to
Iron and Iron forging in the first five books of the Torah. But the smelting and
forging of Iron did not come into common usage
in the middle east until about 800 BC. That was
about the time of the change from the Bronze
Age to the Iron age. We must assume that the
earliest Hebrew scribes who first wrote down
the Torah texts, lived long enough after the
beginning of the Iron age to have completely
forgotten when the Iron Age actually began.
The earliest Torah reference to Iron is in
Genesis 6:22 about Cain's son, ... Tubal-cain,
an instructor of every forger in brass and iron.
The Hebrew scribes who penned the Genesis
fig 2. Hebrew scribe copies the story were priests and rabbis, and were not
ancient Torah Scroll
historians. They seem not to know that Adam,
Eve, Cain and Abel long preceded the forging of
Iron, so there is something wrong with the text unless it was actually written
after about 600 BC.
DATING THE HISTORICAL TEXTS
Even in the much later historical books of Kings and Chronicles, about
the kings such as, Saul, David and Solomon, we again have the same problem.
Many scholars believe that the historic books were actually journals or
diaries written concurrently with the events during the time of the Kingdoms
of David and Solomon. But not so.
In the story of David and Goliath, the text explains the size of the giant
Goliath. He was so large that his "iron bed" was larger than a weaver's loom,
or about 10 feet. But David and Goliath lived
200 years before Iron forging was invented. And
the first use of Iron was for weapons such as
swords and armor. It was only much later that
Iron was used for common personal goods such
as making beds. Thus even the later historical
books were also written much later and
probably also about 600 to 500 BC.
Since the first five books of the Torah were
written about 600 BC, we must assume then,
that the 6th book, Joshua, was also written after
that. But what is the actual source of those
books, or scrolls? It turns out not to be from
original Hebrew sources or legends. Almost all
of the material, except for strictly Hebrew
family oral history or lineage, came from much fig 3. David defeats the Philistine
earlier
Greek,
Babylonian,
Minoan giant Goliath about 1000 BC
(Phoenician), Egyptian, or Sumerian sources.
FINDING THE ORIGINAL SOURCES FOR THE TORAH TEXTS

The first chapter of Genesis starts, "In the beginning God(s) created
Heaven and Earth." It has always been a theological enigma why the Hebrew
term god was plural in that sentence. But I have solved the problem. Since the
book of Genesis was not of early Hebrew origin but was actually written after
about 600 BC, then that story of the six days of creation could have been lifted
from another source. I have found one of the original sources.
The first chapter of Genesis was "lifted" almost verbatim from the earlier
Greek historian/author, Hesiod, dating accurately from 800 BC. There are two
primary academic sources for the history and cataloging of the ancient Greek
religion. They are; Hesiod, and the much later Homer (500BC), in his story of
Troy in his book the Iliad.
Unfortunately, Bullfinch's Mythology and other academics usually only
use Homer as their source and not the much earlier Hesiod. The two Greek
theology stories are not the same. And thus, most people have not studied nor
read Hesiod's version and therefore cannot see the extreme similarity and
parallels between Hesiod version and the first 10 chapters of Genesis.
THE PROOF OF THE PARALLEL TEXTS
I have studied Hesiod's, "Theogony" (Source of the Gods) and found that
it was, in fact, the source for the first chapter of the Hebrew book Genesis. In
the Hesiod Greek version it starts out, "Heaven (Uranus) and Earth (Gaia)
created the gods." Those created gods were the "six" inanimate Titans, who
were later taken over or defeated by the Olympians, led by the "seventh"
primary animated or "living" Greek god, Zeus, also known as Jove. The
Hebrew Genesis version says exactly the same thing but has an "inserted"
grammatical mark called "et".
And in the Hebrew Genesis version, the "six created" Titan gods became
characterized as the "six days of creation of chapter one, but the Greek
god names and the Hebrew days have exactly the same meaning.
Example; In the Hebrew version, on the first day light and dark are created to
mark the first day or the beginning of Time - while in the Greek version, the
first Greek god created was Chronos, also meaning Time.
The other examples in order from Hesiod and Genesis: (Day 2) Hebrew
creation of the "firmament" or sky; Greek god Japetus, meaning blue-eyed or
blue sky, (Day 3) Hebrew separation of ocean waters from the land;
Greek god Oceanus, (Day 4)
Hebrew formation of lights
traveling in the sky, moon and
planets; Greek god Hyperion,
meaning in Greek "he who travels
above," (Day 5) Hebrew creation
of birds and fish; Greek Coes, god
of animals in the sky and ocean,
(Day 6) Hebrew creation of land
fig 4. Six days of Creation from the Genesis story
animals and man; Greek Crius,
goat-like god of land animals.
The "seventh" Greek god, Zeus or Jove, became in the Hebrew version,
YHVH (pronounced "Yo-ve" or "Jo-ve" since in most Indo-European
languages the letters "Y" and "J" are interchangeable). The Hebrew name,
YHVH, the god who rested on the "seventh day" is never spoken or
pronounced in Hebrew. Otherwise, anybody would easily know it was exactly
the same as the contemporary generic Greek and Roman "seventh" gods Zeus
(living person, in Greek) or Jo-ve (Jove-pater, Jove the father, or Ju-piter in
Latin).
A SINGLE DIACRITICAL MARK CHANGES THE WHOLE BIBLE
The effect of that single inserted grammatical mark "et" is to denote

http://www.brojon.org/frontpage/JOSHUA-1.html

10.09.2007

Did Joshua Make The Sun Stand Still? Science behind the Bible

Page 4 of 15

direct object, or the person acted upon by the subject in the Hebrew
sentence. If that single character were removed, then the first sentence of
Genesis, is reversed. Then the first sentence would literally translate as,
"Heaven (shamayim) and Earth (h'aretz) first made the gods (elohiym). But
that is exactly the same as the Hesiod Greek version of the text. Now you know
why the Hebrew version of the Torah has "gods" as plural in the first
sentence. It was simply lifted, as a whole, from the earlier Greek Hesiod
source, by some Hebrew scholar who first wrote down Genesis about 600 BC.
That's 200 years after Hesiod wrote his version.
But somebody, later simply stuck into the Hebrew scroll text that single
grammatical mark "et" to make it look like Judaism was not actually pagan,
just like the Greeks, but was monotheistic with a single Hebrew god, simply by
reversing the order of the very first sentence. That is the only place where the
grammar mark "et" is used in the Old
Testament biblical text. Since it is only a
grammar mark it is not indicated in
English or other language translations.
The only way we know the meaning of
that simple mark is from its use in other
non-biblical Hebrew texts. Simply
inserting or removing that one mark in
the first sentence completely changes the
whole demeanor of the later Hebrew
religion. It was a crude attempt, but I
caught the crude error by finding the fig 5. Inserting grammatical character "et"
original source for the text. Simply to convert a Greek pagan myth to a Hebrew
inserting that single character in the first monotheistic creation story
sentence of the first chapter was
sufficient to make the Hebrew national religion look like it was not Greek in
origin, but was some separate belief system belonging to the Jews. Not so.
THE ANCIENT SCIENCE IN THE BIBLICAL TEXTS
I have found many examples of hard-core early science, about astronomy,
mathematics, geology and lunar/solar time systems for making accurate
calendars in the first 10 chapters of Genesis. These scientific or ancient
wisdom references were lifted straight out of the earlier Greek, Egyptian and
Sumerian scientific sources, but the "names" were changed "to protect the
innocent." And here "innocent" means the Hebrew scribes who plagiarized
the earlier material without citing the original sources. Most of the early
religions also did the same things, including the Greeks, Egyptians,
Babylonians and Sumerians, so it's not just the Semites who plagiarized
material in order to tell a good story. The ancient science and wisdom
literature was simply passed off as original "miracle" stories or legends. But
not so.
Joshua took over command of the Hebrew army after the death of Moses
in about 1300 BC. So, supposedly, the book of Joshua should come after the
Books of Moses, or the scroll of the Torah. But as I pointed out, the Torah was
not written down until about 600 BC. So what about the Book of Joshua?
What is its source, and when was it written?
In the Joshua text itself, verse 10:13, it says, "Is this not written in the
Book of Jashar? The sun stayed in the midst of heaven, and did not hasten to
go down for about a whole day." (Note: the spelling I found most often was
Jasher, not Jashar. But the early Hebrew syllabary had no vowels so either is
correct. The Hebrew text only shows J-SH-R.)
I spent nearly a decade trying to track down any source or reference to
the Book of Jasher. In 1991, I finally found a copy. It purported to be
something like an Armenian language text translated from the ancient

http://www.brojon.org/frontpage/JOSHUA-1.html

10.09.2007

Did Joshua Make The Sun Stand Still? Science behind the Bible

Page 5 of 15

Hebrew Book of Jasher, found in a mysterious buried chest, in Russia in


the 1800's. I found it to be a completely modern fake. Thus the Book of Jasher,
which I had found, was not from any original sources, but was most probably,
a 19th century hoax.
I must assume that for over three millennia people have been looking for
the long-lost Book of Jasher, but finding none, somebody finally made up a
faked text to support the story told in the book of Joshua. The "fake" book of
Jasher seemed to be a modern re-write of stories from the book of
Deuteronomy. But, unknown to most people, Deuteronomy is clearly written
after the "post exilic" period about 500 BC, after the last two remaining
Hebrew tribes of Judah and Benjamin were released from bondage in
Babylon. But how can a collection of stories in the "Book of Jasher" with
stories written in 500 BC be the "sourcebook" for the Book of Joshua,
claiming to be written about 1300 BC? It would then be reasonable to assume
that both the books of Deuteronomy and Joshua were written after about 500
BC,
Thus, I must conclude that there is not and never was any Book of Jasher.
The story about Joshua making the sun and moon stop was simply an often
used literary artifice to make Joshua look important and powerful. It was a
common literary device in the old testament to use "Is it not written in the
Book of ..." to make it seem as if the story comes from an older source, when
actually it was simply a fictional story-telling device to enhance the
"authority" of the storyteller.
THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SCIENCE AND RELIGION
I don't think most of the ancient Hebrews believed that story about
Joshua and the sun and moon -- any more than today, people might or might
not believe the story that George Washington chopped down a cherry tree or
had wooden teeth. It's a nice legend about a popular national hero, but
without any factual basis.
Does anybody really believe the story, that Joshua, with seven rams horns
blew down the walls of Jericho? Of course not. Earthquakes knock down stone
walls, not rams horns. But maybe the horns
were being blown about the same time as a
large earthquake occurred. That's possible.
Most ancient people didn't understand nor
even have a name for earthquakes, so the
cause of the crumbling stone walls was
ascribed to Joshua and his horn blowers. The
whole Book of Joshua, should be taken with a
legendary grain of salt, just like the story
about Washington tossing a quarter across
fig 6. Joshua's Hebrew army attacked the Delaware River.

the
Hebrew
"historical" books such as "Kings" and "Chronicles" about the stories of
Kings David and Solomon which occurred about 1,000 BC were not written
down until more than 400 years later after 600 BC. To assess how much
literary embellishment has been added to those Hebrew "historical" books
after 400 years, consider how much legendary embellishment has been added
to the story of George Washington after only 200 years.
Today, much of modern science, such as Relativity Theory and Big Bang
Creation is completely based on "belief" not on facts. While, in contrast, much
of the biblical "religion narrative" is actually based on legitimate but quite
mis-understood ancient science. It's most interesting how much both science
and religion have simply gotten it all wrong. But the worst "faithers" are the
scientists, since they think they can actually "prove" their "beliefs."

CHAPTER 2: How the Principles and Knowledge of Advanced Modern
Science, Mathematics and Astronomy Got Hidden Inside the Bible
HOW THE TRUTH ABOUT GENESIS WAS COVERED UP
Around 300 BC, the truth of the ancient scientific wisdom in Genesis was
covered up and destroyed. What was that scientific knowledge, who did it and
why? The problem that is confusing most people is that the Hebrew
Concordance information included in most bibles is incorrect. For example in
most Hebrew Concordances you will find:
"In the beginning (B'resheet) created (b'rah) Gods (Elohim - a plural
ending) the (et) heavens (ha-shamyim) and the (v'et) earth (h'eretz)."

WHERE THE ANCIENT SECRET WAS CONCEALED

b'reh-sheeth'


GODS

h'eh'-retz

THE EARTH

THE HEAVENS

fig. 7. This is the first line of text from the ancient Hebrew Torah. Also known as
Genesis 1:1. The Hebrew text and letters are read from right to left. In Hebrew
grammar the sentence structure is Verb-Object-Subject. This sentence properly
translates as "The Heavens and the Earth at first made gods." The surreptitious
insertion was the Direct Object symbol "et" which reverses Subject and Object.

" "At first, I was confused as to where this mistaken translation might
have come from, but then I found the original source was "The New
Englishman's Hebrew Concordance" first published in English in 1843. What
is confusing is that the text has too many "the" words in it. The New
Englishman's says the following for the word et "."
"N.B. The place of "aleph-tav" ( when nothing is given in the English as
its meaning) is marked thus, )(."
In other words when you see )( in the Englishman's Concordance it means
the Hebrew text has the almost silent word with no translated meaning
"et." It then gives the literal translation of Gen 1:1 as:
"In the beginning God created )( the heavens
and )( the earth."
And that is pretty much what you find in most bibles. But that says that
there are two )( "s" in Gen 1:1 and not just one. If you check the original
Hebrew text, that is clearly incorrect. It is false. There is only one. So who is
trying to fool whom?
One of the confusions is that "v'et" is not the same as " et." The word
"v'et" means AND. As in h'shamyim (the heavens) v'et (and) h'eretz (the
earth). Yes, there are thousands of alef-tav characters in the biblical text, if it
is preceded by the character vav, since vav-alef-tav is the common conjunction

http://www.brojon.org/frontpage/JOSHUA-1.html

10.09.2007

Page 7 of 15

"and."
ADDITIONAL PROOF OF THE COVER UP MISTAKE
I should also add, that in Hebrew the specific article "the" is indicated by
adding the letter "he" at the front of the word. Thus shamyim means heavens,
but ha'shamyim is THE heavens, and eretz means world and ha'eretz is THE
world. What that means is that "ha'.." indicates "the" and that ")(" does not
mean "the." So the New Englishman's Concordance translation of the first
sentence has too many "the" words in it. It is not correct and just doesn't
make any sense.
In most Hebrew Concordances you can find " alef-tav" listed as being
used 26 times in Genesis 1. But in all those other cases it is added onto or
attached to the front of the noun word which the direct object of the sentence.
It does not stand alone as it does in Gen 1:1. In fact, it is not a word, but only
part of a word and it never stands alone. It never stands alone since it is not a
word with linguistic meaning, it only has grammatical meaning to indicate
direct object in the sentence.
For example: in Gen 4:1 it says "Adam knew Eve ... and she bore Cain."
This seems to be some kind of Hebrew poetry and for some reason they
needed to show who "knew" whom, since here the normal Hebrew word order
had been changed. Thus in the text it has "h'adam" knew "'et-h'eva." Here
the word "et-h'eva" or The First Mother has the added alef-tav " "sound
added to the front to show that it was Adam that knew Eve, and not the other
way around.
I had to laugh at that Hebrew usage, since the last time I checked with my
kids about the latest in sex education, whether Adam had sex with Eve, or Eve
had sex with Adam - it still comes out that Eve bore Cain. So whether they
added the "' "et sound to the front of the word Adam or Eve - they still
raised Cain. Maybe the ancient Hebrew scribes hadn't figured that out yet.
Also in that very same sentence, the "' "et sound is added to the front of
the name Cain, to show that it was "h'eva" who bore "'et-Cain" rather than
Cain bore Eve. To find out why all these strange grammar machinations to
figure out, who did what to whom, we need to know something about normal
word order in ancient Hebrew.
Coming next: How word order in the ancient Hebrew sentence Seals the
Proof of the Great Mistake in Genesis 1:1. What role did the Ancient Wise
men, the Magi, have in creating that mistake. And how modern science, math
and physics were delayed by thousands of years by covering up the Gnostic
Knowledge of ancient science.

CHAPTER 3: How the Principles and Knowledge of Advanced Modern
Science, Mathematics and Astronomy Got Hidden Inside the Bible - and
Who Tried to Hide It
DISCOVERING THE ANCIENT SCIENTIFIC
SOURCE FOR THE ALPHABET
Most people have been taught that our modern alphabet was invented by
the Greeks and it got its name from the first two letters in Greek, Alpha and
Beta. But is that true? It has long been a mystery as to where the alphabet
symbols came from and why they are in almost the same order regardless of
the language. What we now call the alphabet was first developed thousands of
years earlier, about 6,000 years ago as a list of the symbols or signs of the
Zodiac in the sky. This was uniformly used by most of the ancient cultures in

all of the western


world ranging from
Europe, Africa to
India.
The
ancients
made the symbols
from star constellations
as
they
appeared on the
horizon just above
the western setting
sun on the first day
of the month. The
first day of the new
month was the day
when
the
thin
crescent moon first
appeared just above
the sun at sunset. The
name of that month
or "moonth" was the
name of the constellation seen behind
the crescent new
moon.
Thus
the fig 7. Matching the Signs of the Zodiac as seen at Sunset to the
earliest calendar of Original Characters of the Alphabet
the star patterns seen
in the sky at sunset was made first, and then the same symbols were later
adapted and used as a convenient primitive alphabet or syllabary. A syllabary
is a partial alphabet without the vowels.
The first symbol in the star list was Taurus
the Bull. This star pattern at sunset appears as
an obvious triangle of five stars with the point
or nose of the bull pointing left. The ancient
symbol was a V shape pointing left and a
vertical line through the "horns." This later
was rotated 90 degrees to become our modern
letter A. The ancient Egyptian word for bull
was Alif, later Hebrew was Aleph, and the
Greek was Alpha. In ancient Egyptian, the Alif
symbol was a sideways V with a vertical line.
fig 8. Taurus the Bull becomes The Hebrews had rotated the symbol and
Aleph or A
moved the vertical crossing line and put it on
the left to look like the letter N, and called it
Aleph. The Greeks simply rotated the much older Egyptian symbol similar to
today's A.
The next symbol in the Zodiac list is Gemini. This is a very large asterism
or constellation with two very bright stars (Castor and Pollux) with two
medium bright stars just below which are the torsos of the twins. And then
farther down were another two stars which
were the "feet" of the twins. The ancients
ignored the distant and dim feet stars and only
used the two bright top stars and the two torso
stars. The reason was because the "feet" stars
were dim and simply disappeared below the
horizon in the bright sky of the setting sun. This
symbol of four stars on the sunset horizon looks

like a wide rectangle. To the ancients this


low flat rectangle looked like a House.
The Egyptian word for House is "bet." In
Hebrew the word for House is Beth. As in
Bethel (house of god) or Bethlehem (house of
bread, or a bakery). In Greek the House symbol
became Beta, from the earlier Egyptian "bet"
or Hebrew "beth." Frequently the House
symbol was drawn with a vertical line in the
middle to indicate a two room house. The
Greeks rotated the two room house symbol on
end and it became our letter B.
Next in the ancient star symbol list was the fig 9. Gemini the Twins becomes
very large pattern Leo the Lion, so large that it Beta or B
was divided into
the two parts. The front of the Lion has a very
conspicuous star pattern in the sky looking like
a backwards question mark. The ancient
Egyptian for Lion was Gamel, as in Gamal
Nasser. In Hebrew, this symbol became the
third letter Gimel, and in much later Greek,
became Gamma. The appearance of the
backwards question mark became our modern
third letter C.
The back half of Leo the Lion, was the
haunches of the lion, which appears in the sky

point at the top. This triangle became the
Egyptian Dalet, the Hebrew Daleth and the
Greek Delta, or triangle, as in the triangle
region known as the Nile River delta. In
modern alphabets the triangle was rotated 90
degrees to become our letter D.
Are you beginning to notice that despite the
different languages, all the ancient star symbols
for the Zodiac signs were the same symbol and
even had the same or similar sounding names? fig 11. The back half of Leo the
USING THE ZODIAC SYMBOLS IN Lion becomes Delta or D
OTHER LANGUAGES
I have traced the symbols of the Zodiac around the year and they can be
shown to be the source of the 19 characters of the Egyptian syllabary. The
pronunciation of the character, or its linguistic
value, was from the beginning sound of the
early ancient star symbol name.
The ancient Hebrews adapted the 19
Egyptian symbols and names and slightly
expanded them to 22 characters, as did other
languages which needed to distinguish between
similar language sounds. Example: In Hebrew
the alphabet characters Sin and Shin are really
the same Egyptian symbol, looking like the
letter W but, Sin has a dot above the left end,
and Shin has a dot above the right end.
So there is a one to one correspondence to

http://www.brojon.org/frontpage/JOSHUA-1.html

10.09.2007

Page 10 of 15

each of the Egyptian, Hebrew and Greek


alphabet letters tracing back to the 12 signs of
the Zodiac which were sometimes subdivided,
based on the needs of the language, to produce 19 Egyptian, 22 Hebrew and 24
Greek letters. All modern Latin-based alphabets, including English, are based
on the original 19 Egyptian-Sumerian syllabary or consonant symbols, but
added 5 vowel sound symbols for a total of 26 symbols to make a complete
modern alphabet.
HOW OLD ARE THE ZODIACAL ALPHABET SYMBOLS
Is it possible to date the very beginnings of the alphabet? Yes. Today,
Taurus the Bull is no longer PRECESSION OF THE EQUINOXES THROUGH THE
the constellation or star AGES
pattern seen on the horizon at
sunset on the first day of the
year. It is no longer the first
item on the Zodiac star pattern
list.
Because of the precession
of the equinoxes, which takes
about 26,000 years for a
complete cycle, the stars seen
on the horizon at sunset shift
through the cycle about 2,200
years for each Zodiac symbol.
The star patterns have shifted
through three zodiacal signs
since Taurus was the first
pattern on the list. Thus the
beginnings of the alphabet
began when Taurus was on the
horizon on the first day of the
year between 4,400 to 6,600
years ago. That would be
between 2,400 to 4,600 BC.
The
earliest
known
examples of symbolic writing
or earliest alphabets discovered by archaeologists is the
almost simultaneous appearance of writing in Ancient
Sumeria and Egypt about 3,600
BC. This is right in the middle
of the time when Taurus the
Bull, or Alef was first on the
zodiacal star list.
Thus, despite what most
people believe, the word fig 13. The Constellations of the Zodiac with dates as
"alphabet" does not come from they appeared on the Spring Equinox sunset horizon on
the Greeks, but from many the First Day of the ancient new year. This is the source
thousands of years earlier, of the term Age of Aquarius, meaning the future or the

WHO FIRST DEFINED THE ZODIAC AND MADE THE SYMBOLS


About 5,000 BC a wisdom school was established in the Caucasus
Mountains just north of the ancient Mesopotamian "cradle of civilization."
This has been called by various names, but typically, it
was the School of Zoroaster. Each year only the most
intelligent and highly educated scholars from around the
known world were selected to attend this school. The
purpose of this school of higher education was to discover
the ultimate laws and rules of the universe. This school
was the first University.
There is historical evidence that this Zoroasterian
University remained in existence from about 5,000 BC to
about 1,000 BC. The graduates of this University traveled
back to their homes and were the advisers to kings and
pharaohs throughout the ancient world. Why is it you
never heard of them? You have. They were called the
Magi. The "wise men" of the ancient world.
Even today, highly educated scholars are hired by
local communities as a combination police officer, judge,
administrator and justice of the peace - and they are
called MAGIstrates. The Magi served that same role in
fig 14. Early stylized most of the communities and cities of the ancient world.

Zoroaster from about science mysteries is called a MAGIcian. They are
5,000 BC
mentioned numerous times in the ancient texts, including
the Greek new testament and even more so in the old
testament Torah, but you need to know where to look.
The early Persian and Indian name Magi was plural and referred to the
group of university scholars. The singular form of the word is Magus. The
Magus was skilled in designing and using scientific instruments and machines.
In early Greek, Magus was also Machus or Machanus, from which the
modern terms machinist or mechanical are derived. The Magi were equivalent
to modern day members of Mensa, who have a Ph.D. in astronomy, physics,
medicine, law, or at least an MBA in Civil Adminstration. Their scholarly
works filled the scrolls in the ancient Library at Alexandria, which held all the
wisdom of the ancient world.
Almost all the civil laws and codes of conduct of the ancient world were
written by the Magi. That includes the Code of Hammurabi and even the Ten
Commandments. You may think Moses got the Ten Commandments on the
top of Mt. Sinai, but not so. When
Moses first escaped from Egypt, he
ran across the Sinai desert to Midian,
halfway down the coast. There he met
his future wife Zipporah, and future
father-in-law Jethro, who was the
Magi of Midian. Exodus 18:12
through verse 26 tells how Jethro, the
Magi of Midian, taught Moses how to
run the civil administration for the
Hebrews in the desert, and how to set
up a code of conduct to be administered by local judges. Two chapters
later, Moses "magi-cally" produces
the Ten Commandments.

Testament include: Melkezedek, fig 15. Botticelli's version of Moses helping the
Enoch, Elijah, Eli, and Samuel. daughters of Jethro at the well
Samuel was the last of the Hebrew
Magi. After him, the Kings Saul, David and Solomon, assumed they were
smart enough that they didn't need to listen to any Magi. After King David,
the few remaining wise Magi were called Prophets, who were completely
ignored by the later faltering Kings of Israel and Judah. If there is a message
in the Old Testament or Hebrew Bible it would be: Listen to the advice of the
Magi and you will flourish and your society will thrive -- or if not, then your
kingdom will be destroyed, your people will be killed or taken off into slavery.
Which is pretty much all of the Hebrew Old Testament in a nutshell. Later
religious scholars like to turn the Old Testament into a "religious" document
by simply eliminating all references to the Magi in Hebrew history.
THE MASTERS OF TIME AND SPACE
The Beginnings of Mathematics and Science
I call the ancient Magi scholars the "masters of time and space" since
their studies included knowledge of science, physics, astronomy, mathematics
and the making of accurate calendars. Why calendars? You need an accurate
calendar to master time and space. Their discoveries included, by about 3,500
BC, knowledge of the diameter of the earth, exact length of the year as earth
goes around the sun, in-depth knowledge of medicine, electricity and lists of
accurate star charts and planetary motions. I will show you the evidence for
these discoveries and document where you can find them.
It was from those ancient Magi star charts, that all of western civilization
came to have, as you now know, a common alphabet with common sounds for
each of the symbols - based on the Magi names for the symbolic pictures that
they had discovered in the heavens nearly 6,000 years ago.
Why is it that all the wisdom, science and knowledge of the ancient Magi
was placed in the ancient biblical texts, and then later covered up? Maybe the
Magi, the biblical wise men themselves can show us the answer.

THE SHOCKING GREAT WAR:


CREATION VERSUS EVOLUTION
Who Has the Correct Answer?
It's Time to End the Insane Debate
ADDENDUM TO ALL THREE TRIPTYCH PARTS OF THE
KINECHRON INVESTIGATION
1. DID JOSHUA MAKE THE SUN STAND STILL -- Chapter 4
2. WHERE DOCTOR EINSTEIN WENT WRONG -- Chapter 3
3. WHAT REALLY KILLED THE DINOSAURS -- Chapter 6
RESOLVING THE GREAT DEBATE
Recently the Science Vs. Religion debate has heated up over the battle of
which "theory" is correct -Creation or Evolution. The debate has recently
ranged from the depths of the White House, to numerous School Boards,
lawsuits and even many college campuses. And which theory is correct? It
turns out that neither side can "prove" they are correct - for the simple reason
that both sides are wrong.
1.) CREATION: The biblical text does not say that the earth is only about
4,004 years old. That was Bishop Usher who made that mistake and he was
wrong -- not the bible. The bible, in fact, says nothing about age of the earth.
Bishop Usher made a mistake in assuming that Genesis Chapter 5 was about
the ages of the patriarchs.

Instead it contains a hidden critical piece of scientific information,


necessary for maintaining the Hebrew culture - the exact length of the year,
365 days. Before about 2,000 BC, most middle-eastern advanced cultures used
a 360 day lunar calendar which is good enough for being a shepherd or camel
herder. But to be a true farmer and use agriculture, you need to know the
exact length of the year to be able to know when to plant your crops the next
year. I will explain and prove that in detail later.
So Bishop Usher was wrong. People who believe in the "young earth" are
wrong, based on a mistaken translation by a Bishop who was not a scientist. A
Bishop who didn't understand the scientific and historical meaning of Genesis
5, which documents the "evolution" of ancient cultures from huntergathering-herding societies, into full-fledged agricultural societies which need
a proper 365 day solar calendar to survive.
2.) EVOLUTION: Charles Darwin was also very wrong. Evolution by
"natural selection" was not the process which created the myriad lifeforms
that now exist on earth. There is plenty of evidence which can prove that. The
one item of critical evidence to prove that Darwin's Evolution is not correct is
that after 150 years of diligent searching, not one, no, not even one example of
a missing link or any intermediate species form has ever been discovered. But
that is exactly what is needed to show Darwin's evolution theory was correct.
Since no intermediate species have ever been found, therefore Darwin's
gradual evolution theory by "natural selection" is shown to be false.
Thus the arguments for both sides of the heated debate between "creation
vs evolution" are non-starters. They are BOTH wrong. It's like two blind
people arguing over the color of the sky or the sun. Neither side can prove the
other side is correct or incorrect. It is a useless debate and a waste of time. I
won't mention the number of angels on heads of pins as another example of
useless philosophical debates.
Actually, creation and evolution are also BOTH correct, to some degree.
Not in anyway that most people believe -- but just enough to fool both sides
into thinking that they each might actually be correct.
Every 1 to 2 million years, the magnetic field of the earth reverses the
north and south magnetic poles. The earth itself does not reverse - just the
magnetic field. During the reversal process, the earth's magnetic field, which
usually acts as a shield protecting lifeforms from intense solar X-rays, gamma
rays, and deadly dangerous ionizing particle radiation, suddenly disappears.
The deadly intense solar radiation is momentarily allowed to strike the surface
of the earth.
Within hours, about 99 percent of all life on earth is instantly killed by the
intense radiation. Those few 1 percent of survivors, hidden in caves, in holes in
the earth, or under water are highly deformed, damaged and mutated by the
intense radiation causing direct damage to the DNA molecules in their
reproductive cells. But the radiation damage is not visible in those survivors,
but it is clearly seen in their direct offspring.
Within months or a year, or less than one generation, the surviving
mutants which may or may not still be viable, may be able to reproduce. This
results in multitudes of numerous competing similar but highly modified
mutant lifeforms. Then and only then, does Darwin's evolution process of
"natural selection," enter the scene, to cull the less able or disabled mutant
forms to be lost to history, while the strong survivors with many new
adaptable traits become numerous new species. The new species were
suddenly "created" by the intense radiation within one generation.
Example: About 1 million years ago, during the last magnetic field
reversal, one species, Saber Tooth tigers, were extremely irradiated and in less
than a year became, modern lions, tigers, pumas, ocelots, bobcats, pussycats
and numerous other feline species. None of the new species was ever seen

before the massive radiation event at the magnetic field reversal. Darwin's
"evolution" didn't and couldn't do all of that within several years. But that is
what the geologic record shows -- almost instantaneous "creation" of many
new species by intense random radiation with no intermediate "missing link"
forms, and all within one generation.
Since the time of the age of dinosaurs, which ended 65 million years ago,
there have been about 15 to 20 magnetic field reversals. At each reversal, there
is almost instantaneous creation of multitudes of new lifeforms, usually
resulting in many forms coming from just one earlier life form. And usually
the earlier life form disappears, since it is no longer competitive.
Another example: The early horse, eohippus, about the size of a dog,
disappeared, but became donkeys, horses and several equine variants such as
zebras which are almost related species. Notice, in this process there is no
gradual evolution -- and thus no "missing links" between species.
Charles Darwin, when he invented his evolution theory, knew nothing
about this, since "radiation" was not "discovered" until 50 years later by
Madame Currie. And the effect of radiation on DNA was completely
unknown, until DNA was "discovered" by Watson and Crick 100 years after
Darwin. Thus Darwin, in the mid-19th century, had no clue as to what might
be the actual cause to make one species change into another species. Thus
Darwin's Theory is wrong.
No missing links between species have ever been discovered. Now you
know why. The new species were "created" almost in the blink of an eye, by
intense solar radiation. No intermediate species or "missing link" were ever
born. The new mutant species were born directly from their highly radiated
and DNA-modified parents.
Thus, almost instantaneously, in geologic time, the new lifeforms are
"created" by the intense radiation, and then the survivors quickly "evolved"
in just one generation into the many viable new species.
Thus, it is time to end the inane debate between "creation versus
evolution." Both scientific and religious "beliefs" are wrong and cannot be
proved to be true. Both can be proved to be false. And also both are partly
"right" -- but for the wrong reason.
