Henry Bauer: We have to be skeptical about what scientists say, because what scientists tell you is not necessarily the same as what science can tell you.

A selection of quotes from the interview

Henry Bauer: Right, thanks. I was turned on to science in high school and I studied chemistry and I taught chemistry and did research in chemistry [he is emeritus professor of chemistry and science studies, and emeritus dean of the College of Arts and Sciences at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, “Virginia Tech”]

Henry Bauer: Exactly, thank you. The thing is that even as science is accepted as being the hallmark of a true understanding, the fact of the matter is, the history of science shows quite clearly that scientific consensus, at any point in time, can’t be accepted as absolutely correct.

Sir Isaac Newton on ancient history

Compiled By Brian Forbes

Sir Isaac Newton, a father of physics, who discovered the math of gravity, was interested in early history. He summarized it by saying that kings were made into gods by their citizens. Kings of cities were deified by their cities, and kings of nations by their nations.

He said that this practice didn’t happen over time from the bottom up, but right away from the top down. He said that the original religion was given by Noah, but Mercury changed all that in honor of Osiris & Isis. He said that the historians of Egypt made the gods more ancient than they really were, and that many were ruling during the reign of king David of Israel.

What Did Sanchoniathon, Phoenicia’s Ancient Historian, Write?

PIC BYBLOS LEBANON – courtesy onemilegrads.blogspot

Sanchuniathon, (flourished 13th century BC?), ancient Phoenician writer. All information about him is derived from the works of Philo of Byblos (flourished ad 100). Excavations at Ras Shamra (ancient Ugarit) in Syria in 1929 revealed Phoenician documents supporting much of Sanchuniathon’s information on Phoenician mythology and religious beliefs. According to Philo, Sanchuniathon derived the sacred lore from inscriptions on the Ammouneis (i.e., images or pillars of Baal Amon), which stood in Phoenician temples.
  — From Encyclopædia Britannica.

Eusebius says that Philo placed Sanchuniathon’s works into nine books. In the introduction to the first book he makes this preface concerning Sanchuniathon:

“These things being so, Sanchuniathon, who was a man of much learning and great curiosity, and desirous of knowing the earliest history of all nations from the creation of the world, searched out with great care the history of Taautus, knowing that of all men under the sun Taautus was the first who thought of the invention of letters, and began the writing of records: and he laid the foundation, as it were, of his history, by beginning with him, whom the Egyptians called Thoyth, and the Alexandrians Thoth, translated by the Greeks into Hermes.”

The following translation is from I. P. Cory’s Ancient Fragments (1828/1832). Cory has provided citations for the passages in Eusebius’ work from which this epitome of Sanchuniathon has been reconstructed.

Jabal ‘Amelat The History Through Eponyms in South Lebanon B.C.

Jabal ‘Amelat By Dr. Youssef el-Hourani

Introduction
Wherever we go in South Lebanon, we find ourselves surrounded by traces and footprints of ancient civilizations. If we are interested in studying history through language, with whoever we talk of the inhabitants of that area, we find still alive something to remind us of those who once lived there. Man’s story in Jabal ‘Amelat in South Lebanon, began long before History. The natural shelters, like those picturesque caves in the “Zahrani” river valley, testify to man’s existence by means of his implements and primitive elaborations, notwithstanding the fact that archeologists have not yet reached all the historically important sites there.

The mountains, hills, valleys, meadows, slopes, springs, fountains, rivers, natural shelters, and everything in that neighborhood, were attractive to a man looking for a land fit to be his home, and afford him protection, not only against foes, but also against the hardiness of nature found in other lands. Here everything and every event is moderate, and invites man to start a social life by building hamlets, villages and sanctuaries which he could bequeath to his successors.
That the nature of the land supported a social life in a continuous manner since thousands of years, is witnessed by the continuous use of very ancient names for the ruins and localities, small valleys and petty springs…

Convinced as we are of the existence of a very early and sustained social life in Southern Lebanon, we were able to appreciate the importance of eponyms designating villages or localities as clues for the study of the civilizations and cultures of the area.
When we use names that we consider well-known eponyms, we do not bother, as some scholars do, to give linguistic explanations. That is because our aim is not to investigate every name found on the map, but to choose only the names that are unequivocal and supported by evidences from historical texts, traditions or other data; such as the presence elsewhere in the area of names belonging to the same culture. Therefore, we refer to many cultures by means of the names of localities they once occupied. Continue reading Jabal ‘Amelat The History Through Eponyms in South Lebanon B.C.

Another Cover Up in Egypt – A short Shocking Video

This is the so-called “Unfinished Northern Pyramid of Zawyet El Aryan.” It doesn’t look like a pyramid at all, and is in fact in the shape of a parallelogram. Not only that, it is totally off limits by the Egyptian authorities, not only for tourists, but even for Egyptologists and archaeologists! Why!

Carved through solid bedrock more than 75ft (25 M.) down – the Egyptian government has chosen literally to cover-up this site… and with what and how will certainly upset you. Just how could the dynastic Egyptians possibly have done this jaw dropping structure?

We have no idea. But it is an amazing construction that should upset any Egyptologist. Where are the voices of protest? OR… did they find something in there that contradicts the favorite narratives of mainstream history?

It happened in France, where one so-called Caveman’s cave was closed to the public, ostensibly, because there were pictures of men with dinosaurs together! And, -as the enlightened ones among you already know – that just doesn’t fit the usual propaganda.  What are your thoughts on the subject?

Tomb of Gilgamesh Found in Uruk! By Wikipedia Damned Euhemerism Vindicated Again!

Wow! This was big news! Shocking! Gilgamesh turns out to be more than fiction or myth, contrary to what academia has been pushing for a century. Gilgamesh was a real person and they found his tomb, just as it was said in the epic, built under the course of the Euphrates River! It only got a little mention in the BBC (in One Minute World News) where Uruk – the origin of eponymous Iraq!

NOTE how the BBC says “believed found!” If it was “Lucy’s” bones found over a couple square kilometers, they’d say, “definite proof of humanoid primate!” See, it all depends on what they want you to believe.

In this case the find of Gilgamesh tomb ought to be called the find of the decade or of the 21st century, as yet another ancient literary source (2300 BC) turns out to be historical and less “mythological” than widely assumed. Uruk was the first city? Responsible for most first inventions, like writing, law, education, taxes, love songs, ethics, justice, agriculture, medicine, love and family? Wow, that early?

But inspite of all these proven first inventions, mainstream historians don’t trust Sumer’s own historical writings and denounce them as fictitious mythology without any core of truth. After all they were the immdiate descendents of stupid cavemen and hunter gatherers! And Euhemerism is ‘a bad bad method of doing history!’ For sure!!

“Live Science” Finds Canaanite DNA in the Lebanese But Replaces Patriarch Canaan With a Darwinist “Stone Age Hunter Gatherer”

Live Science Magazine reported that English archaeologists did indeed discover an overwhelming genetic similarity between the Canaanites of around 1500 BC and modern day Lebanese. They were so surprised! How inane and a-scientific can Darwinians get! We could have told them that fact without an expensive DNA test.

If they had read all the ancient chronicles and historians from that time and onward, they would have easily known and not been surprised at all, that they indeed descended from their patriarch Canaan!, and that not just because “Moses & Joshua wrote about it“, but these ‘scientists’ despise simple Euhemerist explanations!

Flavius Josephus on Adam, the 10 Kings, Noah, the Flood, Earth’s Repopulation, & Tower of Babel

CHAPTER 2.

CONCERNING THE POSTERITY OF ADAM, AND THE TEN GENERATIONS FROM HIM TO THE DELUGE,

1. ADAM and Eve had two sons: the elder of them was named Cain; which name, when it is interpreted, signifies a possession: the younger was Abel, which signifies sorrow. They had also daughters. Now the two brethren were pleased with different courses of life: for Abel, the younger, was a lover of righteousness; and believing that God was present at all his actions, he excelled in virtue; and his employment was that of a shepherd. But Cain was not only very wicked in other respects, but was wholly intent upon getting; and he first contrived to plough the ground. He slew his brother on the occasion following : – They had resolved to sacrifice to God. Now Cain brought the fruits of the earth, and of his husbandry; but Abel brought milk, and the first-fruits of his flocks: but God was more delighted with the latter oblation, (6) when he was honored with what grew naturally of its own accord, than he was with what was the invention of a covetous man, and gotten by forcing the ground; whence it was that Cain was very angry that Abel was preferred by God before him; and he slew his brother, and hid his dead body, thinking to escape discovery. But God, knowing what had been done, came to Cain, and asked him what was become of his brother, because he had not seen him of many days; whereas he used to observe them conversing together at other times. But Cain was in doubt with himself, and knew not what answer to give to God. At first he said that he was himself at a loss about his brother’s disappearing; but when he was provoked by God, who pressed him vehemently, as resolving to know what the matter was, he replied, he was not his brother’s guardian or keeper, nor was he an observer of what he did. But, in return, God convicted Cain, as having been the murderer of his brother; and said, “I wonder at thee, that thou knowest not what is become of a man whom thou thyself hast destroyed.” God therefore did not inflict the punishment [of death] upon him, on account of his offering sacrifice, and thereby making supplication to him not to be extreme in his wrath to him; but he made him accursed, and threatened his posterity in the seventh generation. He also cast him, together with his wife, out of that land. And when he was afraid that in wandering about he should fall among Wild beasts, and by that means perish, God bid him not to entertain such a melancholy suspicion, and to go over all the earth without fear of what mischief he might suffer from wild beasts; and setting a mark upon him, that he might be known, he commanded him to depart.

The Occurrence of South American Cocaine in Egyptian Mummies New research provides strong evidence for a trans-Atlantic dispersal by humans

By Dominique Görlitz Technische Univerität Dresden, Institut für Kartographie, GermanyAlthough this thorough research article proving pre-Columbian contacts across the Atlantic is very much anchored in a Darwinian paradigm that prohibits that very contact, we have included it in our site, because it is such a great illustration how emipircal research is so handicapped by the prevailing Darwinian paradigm with all the reuslting terminology like “neo-lithic, paleo-lithic, stone age, holocene, pre-history, early Man, evolutionary function,” etc. The very essence of this research is Görlitz’ effort to rhyme “impossible” pre-Columbian cross-Atlantic travel with the biological evidence that the ancient Egyptians had access to South American Cocaine and even the insects that came with it!

In our very strong proven NON-Darwinian paradigm here in Ancient Patriarchs ancient cross-oceanic sea travel, is no problem whatsoever! It is A FACT supported by very strong evidence of the early Sea-kings, the deified Flood survivors and their offspring who navigated the entire globe, left megaliths everywhere, and like Atlas, early on trigonometrically geo-measured the Earth by the stars, as evidenced by the Giza pyramid in which the Earth’s dimensions were recorded already around 2200 BC.
But because the academic elite & authorities insist on maintaining the Darwinian status Quo and to propagandize the masses with this false unproven notion that species descended from other species over billions of years, all in order to promote and forcibly implant their materialistic ideology on the masses to deny the Creator, therefore good scientists like Dominique Görlitz, have to kowtow to this elite and their 150 year old paradigm, not only to survive as a scientist in their institutions, but also to gain any respect or opportunity to publish!
Regardless, Dominique has done amazing research which totally supports our persecuted, ridiculed, and maligned true NON– Darwinian take on the world”s history, with amazing facts, and we applaud his astuteness, honesty, and courage in daring to rock the outdated Darwinian paradigm boat! God bless you, Dominique Görlitz. Kudos! People, enjoy his PhD paper!

The Open-Access Journal for the Basic Principles of Diffusion Theory, Experiment and Application. The Occurrence of Cocaine in Egyptian Mummies – New research provides strong evidence for a trans-Atlantic dispersal by humans – Dominique Görlitz Technische Univerität Dresden, Institut für Kartographie, Germany (received 22 May 2016, accepted 29 June 2016) [AP: Bolds are ours]

Abstract

One of the unsolved problems of modern science is whether the pre-Columbian peoples of the New World developed completely independently of cultural influences from the Old World or if there
was a trans-oceanic contact? A number of scientists agree that there are many – and often remarkable – similarities between the cultures of pre-Columbian America and those of the Mediterranean world. Nevertheless, there is no agreement, as yet, on how cultural diffusion can be differentiated from independent invention. Scientific analysis shows that scholarly positions are often strongly pre-formed from paradigms (scientific based assumptions), which tend to hinder consideration of solid scientific data offered by geo-biology and its trans-disciplinary examination of the subject under investigation here. 
An unambiguous answer to the question, what historical processes led to the emergence of the ancient American agriculture, hasn’t been given. However, the archaeological discovery of crops with clear trans-oceanic origin, in addition to advances in molecular biology, increasingly support the hypothesis that humans from the distant past influenced each other across the oceans at a much earlier stage.

Archaeologists Find Overwhelming Proofs that the Bible is Truly Historical [VDO]

Dr. Ze’ev Herzog also a professor of Archaeology of Tel Aviv University stated that, “This is what archaeologists have learned from their excavations in the land of Israel: The Israelites were never in Egypt, did not conquer the land in a military campaign and did not pass it on to the 12 tribes of Israel.” BUT……

Inspite of the majority of atheist Israeli archaeologists, like Dr. Finkelstein, archaeologist Dr. Adam Zertal, chairman of the department of archaeology at Tel Aviv University, who used to be an atheist, first believed that “Moses, Joshua, were fictitious characters like Zeus.” But as a conscientious archaeologist, he finally proved to himself that indeed Joshua’s sacrificial altar was real as he found it at Mt. Ebal, and stated that, “if there is an altar on Mt. Ebal… then all the stories in the Bible books of Deuteronomy and Joshua are scientifically true.”

The reactions of the media were of course contrary and kind of bla, but archaeologists did not only find the altar on Mount Ebal near Mt. gerizim, but many more sound proofs of the Bible’s historicity.
