Why Does the Earthquake Calculator Work So Well and When Did Mankind First Start Accurately Predicting Earthquakes?

The new updated BroJon Earthquake Calculator

is now posted for the month of November. Also posted just below the November chart is last month's October chart with the improved algorithm, showing how accurate the Calculator is at predicting the timing and magnitudes of world earthquakes during each month. And how does the Calculator work to predict earthquakes?

The answer is simple. It works exactly the same way Stonehenge,

on Salisbury Plain in southwest England worked about 6,000 years ago. Modern scientists, archaeologists and anthropologists, all make the same mistake in assuming that Stonehenge was some sort of religious temple, farming calendar, or astronomical observatory. It was, in fact, NONE of those. There are no alignments, markings nor functions which would indicate any of those uses.


Instead, Stonehenge was always only a scientific, massive and accurate "doomsday" instrument to calculate when disastrous earthquakes and massive tidal wave tsunamis would occur. At the end of the last Ice Age, about 10,000 BC, much of England and Europe was covered by miles-thick glaciers of ice. The world's sea level was much lower then and there was actually a broad land bridge connecting the British Isles to Europe. Thus, stone age man could spread their hunter/gatherer culture around the world, simply by walking from the Mediterranean Sea, and the middle east, all the way to present day Scotland and Ireland.

About 8,000 BC, as the glaciers receded, the oceans began to rise,

and with the much less massive weight on the British Isles, the land was then free to move. About 7,000 BC, the British Isles began to move northwest away from Europe, resulting in the opening up of the English Channel separating England and Europe. The ancient land bridge from Europe to England began to thin or stretch out and actually dropped below the sea level.

This separation of Britain from the European continent was not gradual. It occurred in many repeated large jumps and massive earthquakes over thousands of years. These massive earthquakes also spawned huge tsunamis which swept across the low-lands of Belgium and Holland and the English lowlands or swamplands running from the southern English coast as far north as Wales. But this was prime and desirable farming and living territory warmed by the pleasant Gulf Stream currents. The desperate stone age "problem" then was to figure out how to predict the frequent massive earthquakes and tsunamis which could completely devastate the cultures of western Europe at the end of the last Ice Age.


It didn't take long for the stone age "scientists" to observe that the earthquakes and tsunamis only occurred when the moon was at its most northern or southern extremes, above and below the earth's equator.

Knowing this, and then simply by observing the motions of the moon and sun would allow the stone age Europeans to predict when the massive earthquakes and tsunamis would occur. This was an early ancient "tsunami" warning system. Simply by knowing when the moon would approach an extreme north or south position would allow the stone age inhabitants to temporarily travel to much higher ground and thus escape the impending doomsday disaster.

The proof that this was, in fact, the function of Stonehenge is shown by the fact that the alignments of the five central massive trilithons in the middle of Stonehenge only line up with the extremes of the sun or "solstices" and the extremes of the moon or "lunastices."

The extremes of the moon do occur twice each month, but these are mostly monthly "minor lunastices." Because of the variations of the shape and tilt of the moon's orbit, about every 18.5 years, only then does the moon move to its most extreme north and south motion, or "major lunastice," of 28 degrees above and below the motion of the sun. And that is the most dangerous time for the massive devastating earthquakes and tidal waves.

A recent example is the Indonesian Tsunami Quake which killed 90,000 people. This occurred at the Winter Solstice when the sun was at its most southern extreme, and on the same day when the moon was at its most northern extreme Lunastice of 28.5 degrees on December 26, 2004.


All of these numbers and angles are marked by the stones at Stonehenge. There seem to be no other markings or alignments to indicate Stonehenge was ever used for observing stars or as an astronomical observatory, nor are there any alignments for the solar "equinoxes" which are used for making accurate calendars for farming and agriculture. Thus Stonehenge was always only an 8,000 year old earthquake disaster predictor.

If you wanted to build an early scientific instrument for predicting the times of the twin disasters of massive earthquakes and tsunamis, how would you build it?

fig 5.   Despite the slightly sloping ground, the lintels atop the large outer ring are all perfectly level, making a perfect "artificial horizon" above the distant trees and hills of the real horizon. This allowed for consistent sighting of the setting and rising sun and moon through the five massive central Trilithons, which are lined up with the extremes of the sun and moon.

For your scientific instrument to safely survive the very same disasters it was designed to predict, you would need to make it "very big and very heavy." Or else it would be simply knocked down or washed away. This is probably what happened to the first and oldest versions of Stonehenge which have since disap- peared. And, of course, "big and heavy" is the first thing you notice about what makes Stonehenge a unique and permanent scientific stone age instru- ment dating from about 6,000 BC.


The instrument was necessary for the continued existence of the many cultures living in northwestern Europe just after the last Ice Age. "Continued existence" is a strong motivation for humans to travel from many hundreds of miles around Salisbury Plain to volunteer to work on the huge lunar instrument. The purpose for building Stonehenge was "basic survival" and it was not some "religious belief" or supersticious motivation. Stonehenge was built about 4,000 years before the arrival of any Celts or Druids. So the Druids did not design nor build it. Which is why modern-day neo-Druids have no clue as to what Stonehenge was for, nor how the scientific instrument was used.

And now you know, why the Brother Jonathan Gazette Earthquake Calculator works as well, and as accurately as it does. I simply turned the alignments of the ancient Stonehenge stones into a computer program. I can run the computer program into the past to confirm predictions with past actual earthquake records. Or I can run the program into the future and publish the predictions in the BroJon Gazette. I use a computer to travel through time. The ancient unknown stone age builders of Stonehenge could do pretty much the same thing, simply by counting around the outer ring of smaller blue Sarcen Stones and Aubrey holes, something like a Lunar Abacus.


Is there any scientific evidence to show that what I just explained to you is true? Actually there is. Several decades ago archaeologists discovered a mysterious stone age village, apparently inhabited by a group called Swanscombe Man.

fig 6.   A recent NASA photograph showing a lunar eclipse between the stones. Lunar and Solar eclipes occur when both the sun and the moon are near the equator and not near an extreme solstice or lunastice angle. No earthquake occurred at this time. This "astronomical" observation was not the function of Stonehenge

What was mysterious about the village was its location -- many miles offshore from Holland and about 100 feet below the sea level in the English Channel. What is a stone age village doing in the middle of the English Channel, between England and Holland, and why did it sink below the ocean? Obviously, at one time that region of the English Channel was a land bridge above sea level during the late Stone Age when the village was built.

Is it possible that there actually are more Swanscombe villages still yet undiscovered on the ancient land bridge between England and France? Is it possible that the Swanscombe culture actually had many villages and even larger towns and circular cities in that rich green fertile region on the land bridge? Could it be that this ancient culture which spread across the land bridge from Europe to the British Isles about 6,000 BC is the source of the ancient legend of Atlantis?

Certainly a culture which built towns and cities on the old stone age land bridge eight thousand years ago, would be exactly where Plato's Atlantis story says it was, beyond the Pillars of Hercules, in the Atlantic Ocean and then mysteriously and suddenly, it sank below the waves. But what about those "very advanced" Atlanteans? Was the stone age Swanscombe land-bridge culture "advanced" enough to be the lost Atlanteans? Well, they were advanced enough to know how, why and where to build the huge circular scientific instrument called Stonehenge. And then smart enough to figure out how to use it. Need I say more?

The new archaeological evidence for an advanced human culture which built boats and sailed the world as early as 40,000 BC. The recently discovered evidence for the advanced culture in Europe during the last Ice Age, 17,000 BC which later built Stonehenge and also hundreds of "woodhenges" across Europe and North America. Was this the culture which was later mis-identified as the Atlanteans?

Also the recent evidence which shows the adept skills of this Ice Age culture with knowledge of astronomy, mathematics and navigation. They almost discovered the absolute value of "pi" as shown in the hundreds of "nearly" circular burial mounds in Europe and North and South America.

Also, we'll find out about the very first Stone Age

intellectual discovery about 15,000 BC, which marked man as a thinking conscious being. And it only used man's most basic tool -- his thumb and forefinger. It was the discovery of how to make a perfect circle, perfectly divided into exactly six parts. This was the basis for all modern mathmatics, and the "measure" or division of the reality of all time and space into 6, 12, and 24 hours -- and the "measure" or dividing of all space into 360 degrees.

This first and most basic human intellectual "discovery" has been in use continuously by all humans throughout the world for over 6,000 years and it is still used unchanged today. You just never knew how and where it came from. And I'll show you that this "circle of 6" is also the basic layout plan for Stonehenge. It is also the scientific mathematical reason for "the measure of man is 666." And even the reason for "the six days of creation" and why quarks always come in threes. That is all coming next.
