Shiji 史記 Annals of the Xia 夏本紀 The Story of Da Yu – English translation

Another part of the Shi Ji annals  written by the Han historian Shima Qian a century before the time of Jesus. Shima Qian referred to ancient sources in his writings, that are not extant anymore.  This chapter is about Yu the Great – Da Yu – whose father Gun failed to control the post Flood swelling lakes and rivers, and paid for it with his life! He was slain by ZhuRong

Yu his son took over the job, not just to save his own life, but most likely to save his family’s honour and reputation. Yu was known for his unswerving fealty to the emperor Shun that compelled him to finish the job, not even considering to return to his wife and children, even though he passed by his home in the course of his labours. For his faithfulness the Emperor chose him as his successor and Yu became the founder of he Xia dynasty.

夏禹,名曰文命。禹之父曰鯀,鯀之父曰帝顓頊,顓頊之父曰昌意,昌意之父曰黃帝。禹者,黃帝之玄孫而帝顓頊之孫也。禹之曾大父昌意及父鯀皆不得在帝位,為人臣。
Yu of Xia was styled Wenming. Yu’s father was Gun, whose father was the Emperor Zhuanxu, whose father was Changyi, whose father was Huangdi; so Yu was Huangdi’s great-great-grandson, and Zhuanxu’s grandson. Yu’s great-grandfather Changyi and his father Gun were both unable to sit on the Imperial throne, being simply officials. (see our diagram below)

“The Eight” Flood Survivors in Global Deluge Legends A Shared Human Memory

A big percentage of the – by now – over 700 global Flood legends, mentioned exactly eight people who were spared and survived. It is uncanny that this number is handed down as fact so uniformly, instead of ten or five or some other random number.

EGYPT: In ancient Egypt one Flood hero was Toth who survived the Deluge along with his Seven Sages.

The Egyptian ‘Ogdoad (does the Latin word for 8 ‘octo’ from that?) were a group of eight survivors led by the main character Nun and his wife Naunet. Nun or Nu (Noah) is pictured in Egyptian art as upholding his boat with the seven other survivors here:

ShiJi’s 史記 Annals of the Five Emperors 五帝本紀 Ain’t No Myth! (English & Chinese)

Sima Qian’s History book Shi Ji‘s fascinating chapter on the ‘Annals of the Five Emperors’, doesn’t feel like mythology at all. It reads like genuine early Chinese history studded with names and facts about their early patriarchs!

Of course the powerful rulers of the entire ancient world and offspring of Ouranoh–Manu-Noah, like Cronus-Ham, Yapheti Japheth, Mizraim-Zeus, Naptuhim-Neptune, Atlas, Poseidon-Sidon, etc., were all considered ‘gods’ by all the early peoples and civilisations, just because these patriarchs lived a very long time! Much longer than their own 3rd, 4th generational offspring, who actually died before them. Noah 600 years old at the Flood lived another 350 years more. Shem died at 600! Mizraim-Zeus, acc. to Arab literature, made it until 700!

When you read this histography of the earliest Chinese patriarchs who migrated into ShanXI or Xian, near the yellow river basin and plateau, you see how they were all related to each other and that there were already emperors and that most of them until Emperor Yao were the offspring of Huang Di! It almost sounds like a dynasty.

Also HuangDi’s forebear ShenNong is mentioned, who was 7-14 generations before Huang Di, but lived long enough to be his friend and mentor! Read this amazing account written around 100 BC, some 2000 years after the facts, and check the names with our diagram of relationships between them. ENJOY!

Ottoman Empire & Ming Dynasty Fell During a Mini Ice Age Like Happens Today!

Are We Next?


The fall of the Ottoman Empire, Inca Empire and Ming Dynasty all collapsed during the early 1600’s due to a grand solar minimum influencing the societies of the day.

What may be an ancient Chinese artifact mysteriously appeared in a small garden next to a pond, on a heavily wooded acreage in a remote and sparsely populated area of Harrison County, Ky.

“It was just laying there,” said the finder, recalling the moment two years ago when his quest began to understand what the disc is and how it got in his garden. It’s been a frustrating, inconclusive quest. With a look on his face of expecting me to have all the answers, he asked, “How do you think it got here?”

As with other such artifacts, which appear to be of ancient Chinese origin found in North America without supporting contextual information, I could only respond that there are multiple possible explanations. Continue reading Ancient Chinese Disk Strangely Found in a Kentucky Garden –

Massive Dinosaur Soft Tissue Discovery In China – Includes Skin And Feathers!

By Michael Snyder

dinobloodcellsA fossil bed in China that is being called “Jurassic Park” has yielded perhaps the greatest dinosaur soft tissue discovery of all time.  According to media reports, “nearly-complete skeletons” have been discovered that even include skin and feathers.  But of course if these dinosaurs are really “160 million years old”, that should be absolutely impossible.  Needless to say, this shocking discovery is once again going to have paleontologists scrambling to find a way to prop up the popular myths that they have been promoting.  What they have been telling us simply does not fit the facts.  The truth is that this latest find is even more evidence that dinosaurs are far, far younger than we have traditionally been taught.

The Ignored Amazingly Huge Ships of Ancient History

Here’s one surprise you should enjoy. Test your knowledge.

HOW BIG WERE ANCIENT SHIPS?

ColumbusNOTfirst

What about Christopher Columbus’ ships? Do you know, Columbus’ whole expedition could mount only 88 men. These were separated onto three ships. Two of these ships were only 50 feet in length, about the size of a small fishing boat. Okay, that’s easy to picture.

Now, let’s get into a time machine, so to speak, and travel back further… further… further… Back to ancient Greece. When we think of ancient battleships, we think of the tiny ships shown in a movie like Ben Hur. They had 50 or so men, and a single tier of oars. That may reflect our evolutionary thinking that the ancients, compared to us, were primitive. Continue reading The Ignored Amazingly Huge Ships of Ancient History

上帝 Shangdi the Original ‘Unknown’ God of China!

An ancient pictogram script points to the Bible

by Ethel Nelson June 1, 1998 – Source: AIG
Mystery concerns the 450-year-old Temple of Heaven complex in Beijing, China. Why did the emperors sacrifice a bull on the great white marble Altar of Heaven at an annual ceremony, the year’s most important and colourful celebration, the so-called ‘Border Sacrifice’? This rite ended in 1911 when the last emperor was deposed. However, the sacrifice did not begin a mere 450 years ago. The ceremony goes back 4,000 years. One of the earliest accounts of the Border Sacrifice is found in the Shu Jing (Book of History), compiled by Confucius, where it is recorded of Emperor Shun (who ruled from about 2256 BC to 2205 BC when the first recorded dynasty began) that ‘he sacrificed to ShangDi.’ 1

Who is 上帝 ShangDi? This name literally means ‘the Heavenly Ruler.’ By reviewing recitations used at the Border Sacrifice, recorded in the Statutes of the Ming Dynasty (AD 1368), one may begin to understand the ancient Chinese reverence for ShangDi. Participating in this rite, the emperor first meditated at the Temple of Heaven (the Imperial Vault), while costumed singers, accompanied by musicians, intoned: Continue reading 上帝 Shangdi the Original ‘Unknown’ God of China!

darwinianmindscrewAmazing Dragon Evidence: Found in Romanian Mountain Cave & Proof of Cover Up. Is there a conspiracy to cover up dragons and giants? If the data don’t fit the Evolutionary Darwinian narrative, it has to be suppressed and it DOES get suppressed! There are even produced gate-keeping fake websites that Google refers to on its first pages with fake dragon or giants’ information! If gullible truthseekers believe the obviously fake sites like Snopes & Worldnewsdailyreport, they will be taken for a ride.
