Full Text of Eusebius’ Chronicle Chronicon Proving the Patriarchs & the Flood

[i] Eusebius, (ca. 263-ca. 339) author of the Chronicle translated below, was a major Christian author and cleric of the fourth century. His other writings, many of which have survived, include the Ecclesiastical History, the Life of Constantine, historical, martyrological, apologetic, dogmatic, exegetical, and miscellaneous works. Although originally written in Greek, his important Chronicle (Chronography, or Chronicon) has survived fully only in an Armenian translation of the 5th century, of which our present edition is a translation. A fifth century Latin translation (known as Jerome’s Chronicle) contains only the second part of Eusebius’ two-part work, namely the chronological tables which accompany the text of Book One. Nonetheless, the Latin translation of the chronological tables is invaluable, since the beginning and ending of the corresponding Armenian parts of Book Two are damaged. Reflecting 5th century Armenia’s multi-lingual cultural milieu, Eusebius’ Chronicle initially was translated into Armenian from the original Greek, then corrected using a Syriac edition. During the same period Eusebius’ other influential work, the Ecclesiastical History, was translated into Armenian from the Syriac. From almost the moment of their translation, Eusebius’ works played an important role in the development of Armenian historical writing.

Many of Eusebius’ extant Greek texts were written while the author worked at the library in Caesarea Palestina founded by the scholar Origen (ca. 185–ca. 254), where he had access to numerous works of antiquity which have not survived. Eusebius’ welcome technique of including sometimes lengthy passages from such lost works guaranteed his writings an important place in historical literature, quite apart from his impressive literary and analytical abilities. These general characteristics of Eusebius’ work are particularly highlighted in the Chronicle. The Chronicle was the ancient world’s first systematic, chronologically sound, universal history. It begins with the earliest extant written records available to our author and continues to his own day, that is to the year 325.

Among the sources cited and often quoted from at length are Berosus, Alexander Polyhistor, Abydenus, Josephus, Castor, Diodorus, Cephalion, various named translations of the Bible, the writings of Manetho, Porphyrius, and others. In a brief introduction, Eusebius describes the plan of his work. He proposes to give a prose description of salient events and personalities from the civilizations of the Chaldeans, Assyrians, Medes, Lydians, Persians, Hebrews, Egyptians, and Greeks, plus listings of the Greek Olympiads, and the rulers of the Greek city-states, the Macedonians, and Romans.

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

The Ancient German History of Tuitsch or Deutsch Most Germans Aren’t Allowed to Know!

COMPENDIUM OF WORLD HISTORY VOLUME 2 A Dissertation Presented to The Faculty of the Ambassador College Graduate School of Education In Partial Fulfillment of the Requirements for the Degree Doctor of Philosophy by Herman L. Hoeh – 1963

INTRODUCTION BY HERMAN HOEH

The first volume of the COMPENDIUM OF WORLD HISTORY exposed the radical new interpretation of history now taught on all levels of modern education. It revealed the fallacy of the “historical method.” It explained WHY God is left out of history.

Volume I restored the history of ancient Egypt, of Assyria and Babylonia, of Media and India, of Greece, Ireland and Britain. This volume completes that restoration. For the first time, in this second volume, the early history of Europe will be made plain. Its connection with the New World, with American Indian civilization, with the early
Biblical heroes is an astounding revelation.

CHAPTER I

EARLY HISTORY OF GERMANY

The time has come to reveal the true history of Europe.

The Germans for centuries have dominated the heartland of Western Europe. Because of the geographic position Germany’s transportation lines constitute the vital arteries of the continent. Without the beating of the German heart, Europe would lose its economic and political prominence in world affairs.

Ancient Roman writers would have us believe that the Germans in the Roman heyday were mere barbarians, an insignificant people roaming the forests of northern Europe.
Was this Roman report the whole truth? Were the ancient Roman writers keeping back from their people the facts of German history?

Rome conquered Spain, Gaul, Southern Britain, all North Africa to the Sahara, Illyria, Greece, Asia to the Euphrates. But Rome had to draw its boundary in the north along the Rhine. Why? Why was Rome not able to subdue all Germany? Why, after centuries of bloodshed, did Rome finally succumb to the hammer blows of the Germanic Goths and Vandals? It is high time we were told the true history of early Germany.

The origin of the German people in Europe is rooted in patriarchal times. The history of early Germany, suppressed by the Romans, was revived briefly in the German-dominated Middle Ages. But before the close of the seventeenth century not even the Germans remembered their past. It had been stamped out in the name of education and religion.

Canaan’s Power Peaked Then Climate Change Plunge

Power of Canaan in Middle East Expanded, Peaking Hammurabi in Babylon, Later Climate Change Plunge

By James Nienhuis

Canaan (a son of Ham) and his progeny ruled the Holy Land during the Ice Age, as well as much of the western Mediterranean by ship having established Atlantis too, (by Canaan’s son Sidon/Posidon). Heth (another son of Canaan) was the progenitor of the Hittites having controlled much of eastern Anatolia. Also Sin (another son) in the Sinai and eastward by circa 1750 B. C.

The Amorites (progeny of Canaan) having begun a dynasty at Babylon, climaxed with the dominant rule of Hammurabi. But circa 1500 B.C. that Canaanite dominance in much of the ancient world came to an end, when their seaports were submerged by the risen sea level, and much of the land in the Middle East turned to desert, beginning at the time of the Exodus of the Jews out of Egypt when the Ice Age was ending.

The Vendidad Spoke About A Recent Ice Age Which Made the Aryans Migrate South!

“O splendid Yima, towards the sacred Aryan land will rush evil as a severe fatal winter; evil will rush as thick snow flakes falling in increased depth. From the three directions will wild and ferocious animals attack, arriving from the most dreadful sites.”

“Before this winter, any snow that fell would melt and convey the water away. Now the snow will not melt (but will form the Polar ice cap). In this place, O Yima the corporeal world will be DAMAGED. Before in this seedland the grass was so soft the footprint of even a small animal could be observed. Now, there will be no footprints discernible at all on the packed sheets of hard ice that will form.”

Modern academia, whether it be geology or history puts the Ice Age way back to 12-, 20-, 50- or even 80.000 years BP! (Before Present) They first of all support their long ago narratives by wrongly interpreting the ice cores’ dark and light sequences’ record as índications for “years”, whereas in fact they are merely evidence of warm melting – and cold freezing periods. But you can’t fight city hall expecting them to change policy.

They also postulated that there is no evidence of a recent Ice Age in documented history, but perhaps they never read the “Vendidad”. The “Vendidad”, the ancient scriptures of the Zoroastrians, mentions that their ancient Aryan homeland used to be way up North in what we’d now call Siberia’s Arctic, but that they were forced to migrate southward, because of an ice age that overtook them!

Pagan Gods Were Mortal Men

group-of-godsFrom Noah to Hercules by Brian Forbes  • May 21, 2015 • 0 Comments • 110 views • Summary:

There is a unanimous ancient perspective that directly contradicts the theory of evolution. It is being ignored by scholars in the modern day. Many pagan gods were mortal men. They were born, waged war, conferred advantages, had children, and died, whereupon they were deified by their descendants.

The theory of evolution is easily refuted by many powerful arguments and proofs. The watchmaker argument is perhaps the oldest and most famous. The Mt. St. Helen’s evidence, as a template for stratification and the carving of canyons, can be boiled down to a few sentences and photographs.

StHelensGrandCanyon

The kings of many European tribes can trace their genealogies back to Noah.[1] Another evidence that is of this caliber, which has yet to be given its proper place in the origins debate, is that of the common ancestry of all men through the “gods” of pagan (especially Greek and Roman) mythology.

At first glance this concept, that many to most pagan gods were mortal men, seems highly speculative – a conspiracy theory on a government protest website. It is not wild speculation. On the contrary, this was a position taken by nearly all historians of antiquity. The most skeptical, naturalistic authors were not ambiguous on this point, and there was very little deviation. This is my opinion, but you don’t have to accept it because of me.

The opinion of an un-credentialed spectator means little in this scholarly, pompous world. That is why I aim to bring you the opinion of these ancient authors in their own words. The experts of antiquity will show that Darwinism does not match the traditions of Paganism, Judaism, or any other ancient perspective on the origin of mankind.

From Noah to Hercules – What History Says about Early Man

The World as We Know It

A Description of Early Man

It is a known fact that the earth is 4.5 billion years old.  We’re not allowed to question it anymore.  Everyone who knows their science knows with certainty that the earth is 4.5 billion years old. In fact, they say it so often that people have stopped using “billions of years” and started abbreviating it as byr. A billion years is a long time.

Can you believe that of the 4.5 byrs of Earth’s history, man has only been man for 200,000 years? It’s true. Don’t scorn! Scientists, as I write this, are all (nearly) unanimous that man has been around since 200,000 years ago. It’s verifiable, experimental, solid, unchanging science! Before about four thousand years ago, our ancestors had trouble being modern. People nearly as smart as you, living nearly as long as you, didn’t build the structures we do. They didn’t know how to plant crops. They didn’t travel beyond a few miles from home. They even had a hard time creating watercraft sufficient to carry them beyond the sight of land. You may not realize this, but once I say it, you will. Two hundred thousand years is not only a long time, it’s a very, very long time.

If you are reading this, you more than likely are of childbearing age. A human generation can be as short as 10 years, but if we are being generous, we would double it. Humans have been around, doing their thing, populating the earth, and figuring out what makes us alive for literally 10,000 generations. That means, just in the human line, you have ten thousand mothers and ten thousand fathers. Continue reading From Noah to Hercules – What History Says about Early Man

World’s oldest winery discovered in Armenian cave

PP EDITOR

This is some more amazing 5 days old news, corroborating the discovery of Noah’s Ark in former Armenian Uruartu or Ararat mountains, where Noah’s Ark landed. According to wine experts and wine scientists, the wine cultivation has always been known as having originated in Armenia, where the Bible book Genesis reports Noah as having planted a vineyard after he landed there with his ark. He produced his first wine harvest and promptly got drunk, and was treated disrespectfully by his son Ham, who looked on his father’s nakedness in the privacy of his tent.

It is fantastic how real history brings out and confirms the details of Biblical history. Enjoy! Only their dating methods may be a little bit off, as according to the consensus of most scholars, the Ark landed approximately 4,500 years ago. They date it 1,500 years older. Well, it’s pretty darn close! I’d say. Continue reading World’s oldest winery discovered in Armenian cave

Çatalhöyük—One of The First Cities After Babel?

by Power Point Paradise • December 18, 2013 • 0 Comments  •  122 views  —

[AP: These settlers were most likely early Hittites or other early offspring of the Flood Survivors. If you reckon that the place where the Ark had landed was less than 400 KM away from Çatalhöyük, it is very likely. But of course that doesn’t fit in the “Caveman Hunter Gatherer” paradigm of so-called “pre-history” that never was. There was only pre Flood history, as testified to by all early civilisations legends from 700 other ethnic groups that all spoke about the global Flood! ]

by David B. Smith

What if you could go back in time to visit one of the first settlements after Babel? Well, it’s possible! In Turkey, archaeologists are unearthing an ancient town that was abandoned and frozen in time. Its unique wonders speak of mankind’s ageless ingenuity.

So-called “Stone Age” people were more sophisticated than you might think. They farmed, herded animals, manufactured tools, created art, and performed many of the same everyday tasks you do. They divided their time between rural, urban, and international activities as we do (well, except for the airplanes). Continue reading Çatalhöyük—One of The First Cities After Babel?
