DID JOSHUA MAKE THE SUN STAND STILL?
CHAPTER 1: Finding the Science and Wisdom Behind the Biblical Texts
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
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."
fig 1. Joshua commands the sun and moon to stand still
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 astronomy, geology and mathematics did occur 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.
fig 2. Hebrew scribe copies the ancient Torah Scroll
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 story were priests and
rabbis, and were not 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
fig 3. David defeats the Philistine giant Goliath about 1000 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 earlier Greek, Babylonian, Minoan (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
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 animals
and man; Greek Crius, goat-like god of land animals.
fig 4. Six days of Creation from the Genesis story
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
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 original source for the text. Simply inserting that
single character in the first 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.
fig 5. Inserting grammatical character "et" to convert a Greek pagan myth to a Hebrew monotheistic creation story
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
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 the
fig 6. Joshua's Hebrew army attacked the ancient high-walled fortress city on the top of the hill Tel Jericho
Even what is theologically and academically taken as 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."
Coming next, finding the much older source of the ancient science and
wisdom behind all of modern religion. Did you ever hear of the Magi?
How did they get to be "wise men?"

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
AND 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 "את."
"N.B. The place of "aleph-tav" את (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
את "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 )( "אתs" 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 את "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 "and."
ADDITIONAL PROOF OF THE COVER UP MISTAKE
I should also add, that in Hebrew the specific article "the" is
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
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 את "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
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
"את" 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 "את" 'et sound to the front of the word Adam or Eve - they
still raised Cain. Maybe the ancient Hebrew scribes hadn't figured that
Also in that very same sentence, the "את" '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.
fig 7. Matching the Signs of the Zodiac as seen at Sunset to the Original Characters of the Alphabet
The ancients made the symbols from star constel- lations 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 constel- lation seen
behind the crescent new moon. Thus the earliest calendar of 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
A syllabary is a partial alphabet without the vowels.
fig 8. Taurus the Bull becomes Aleph or A
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. The Hebrews had rotated the symbol and 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.
fig 9. Gemini the Twins becomes Beta or B
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
Next in the ancient star symbol list was the very large pattern Leo the Lion,
so large that it 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.
fig 10. The front half of Leo the Lion becomes Gamma or C
The back half of Leo the Lion, was the haunches of the lion,
which appears in the sky as a bright equilateral triangle with the 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.
fig 11. The back half of Leo the Lion becomes Delta or 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?
USING THE ZODIAC SYMBOLS IN 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.
fig 12. The balance pans of LIbra the Scales becomes Epsilon or E
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 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
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 the constellation or star 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.
PRECESSION OF THE EQUINOXES THROUGH THE AGES
fig 13. The Constellations of the Zodiac with dates as they appeared on
the Spring Equinox sunset horizon on the First Day of the ancient new
year. This is the source of the term Age of Aquarius, meaning the
future or the setting sun constellation in about 200 years. This is not
the same as the actual place in the zodiac where it crosses the plane
of the ecliptic on the Spring or Vernal Equinox. For modern astronomy,
that is currently three signs back near the First Point of Aries. .
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
The earliest known examples of symbolic writing or earliest alphabets
discover- ed by archaeologists is the almost simultaneous appear- ance
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 "alphabet" does not
come from the Greeks, but from many thousands of years earlier, from the
common zodiacal star lists used by ancient "cradle of civilization"
scientist-astro- nomers who first made symbolic calendars dating from
about 4,000 BC. But who made them? And how did they get all over the
ancient world in all the many languages with the same symbols and names?
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.
fig 14. Early stylized depiction of the fabled Zoroaster from about 5,000 BC
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 most of the communities and cities of the ancient world. Someone
who is a master of inventions and solving science mysteries is called a
MAGIcian. They are 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.
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.
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
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 admin- istered
by local judges. Two chapters later, Moses "magi-cally" produces the
fig 15. Botticelli's version of Moses helping the daughters of Jethro at the well
Other priest-ruler-adminstrators or Magi mentioned in the Old Testament
include: Melkezedek, Enoch, Elijah, Eli, and Samuel. 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
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
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
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
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 hunter-gathering-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
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
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
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
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
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.
