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.

“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!

Two Megalithic Cities Submerged Off Alexandria Egypt so Where is Historical Account of Their Demise?

By James Nienhuis

niledeltaThe astounding submerged ruins of Menouthis and Heraklion on the submerged channel of the extinct branch of the Nile are little known to the public because those who could produce documentaries on it, such as National Geographic and Discovery, certainly know that there is no historical record of the submergence of those cities though the conventional wisdom is that they were submerged because of an earthquake sometime between circa 300 b. c. and 800 a. d.

Some say the ruins are of Canopus, but he was the navigator for the Greek Menelaus circa 1100 b. c. who came there about three hundred years after Menouthis and Heraklion had been consumed by the sea when the Ice Age ended.

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.

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.

Global Repopulation – by J.Nienhuis

Poseidon_sculpture_Copenhagen_2005Exposition One:  As the ice age snowpacks were building in the aftermath of Noah’s Flood and after the Tower of Babel confusion of the languages (probably from Hebrew), about five hundred miles southeast from the landing place of Noah’s Ark in eastern Turkey, the clans listed in Genesis 10 began to spread out across the globe, many by sea, for instance offspring of Canaan, his son Sidon among them, known to many as the sea god Posidon, who with his son Atlas sailed west to the Sierra Morena mountains of southern Spain, the richest mining district in the ancient world, the lifeblood for the great wealth of the Atlantean empire. 

The remnant of that empire was later known at the time of the book of Judges circa 1300 B.C. as Tarshish, with the legendary “Ships of Tarshish,” he who had been a son of Javan, the Greek Iawan having been name-sake of the Ionians, Javan who was a son of Japheth, the “mythological” god Jupiter.

Compendium of World History Volume 1 No Such Thing As “Prehistory” of Man!

Chapter 2 – ’6000 Years of History’ by Dr. Herman L. Hoeh

How long has Man been upon earth? Where, and through whom, did civilization originate? What about “prehistoric man”? Can the history of the Bible be reconciled with ancient history? with Egyptian and Babylonian chronology?

Historians and archaeologists are sharply divided over these questions today. Many sense something is drastically wrong with the present explanation of the ancient world. How did all this scholarly doubt arise?

It is Never Safe to Assume

Remove from a library shelf any volume on world history or ancient man and examine its opening chapters. In it will be such expressions as: “it is thought,” “there appears to be some basis for believing,” “it has been suggested,” “it may be presumed,” “one may safely assume,” and “others are of the opinion” — just to mention a few.

Submerged Ruins Atlantis

Author: James I. Nienhuis

Atlantis-location-map600

EXPOSITION ONE
Have you ever seen a map showing the bronze age port cities of the world?  You certainly have not, because the Darwinists will tell you that sea level at circa 2000 B.C. was little different than today, yet the presence of hundreds of submerged ruins’ sites from the Gulf of Chambay to Bimini, and from Cornwall to Nan Madol, certainly belie that notion, with most of the submerged ruins worldwide in the Mediterranean and eastern Atlantic, right where you’d expect them to be, where Sidon, Peleg, Javan, Tarshish, and Atlas plied the waters, building their port facilities, now submerged since the end of the ice age. 
Here is a partial list of the submerged ruins worldwide, with pictures where available, to be soon updated as more photos will undoubtedly roll-in from interested “submergie” aficionados, so help out if you can, hard as it may be for a Darwinist to do, but certainly not for a soon-to-be ex-Darwinist, we shall see.
