A Celestial Impact and Atlantis

A Celestial Impact and Atlantis  86

A GREAT DISASTER THAT CHANGED THE WORLD

A New Theory

by Jose D. C. Hernandez

1. INTRODUCTION

Let me begin with a quote from the Bible: Wisdom of Solomon 9:16

“And hardly do we guess aright at things that are upon earth, and with labor do we find the things that are before us: but the things that are in heaven, who hath searched out?”

Throughout the years we have seen the current map of our planet with little change.

The question arises:

  1. How did earth look like ions ago?
  2. How those cracks (tectonic plates) at the floor of the ocean got there?
  3. What happened to Atlantis?
  4. Was the great flood real?
  5. How did the earth get its tilt?   And finally:
  6. Where it is the big impact that wipes out those large animals?

Well, I can answer all those questions with a simple event in history, a large celestial impact on earth. Yes, single event ions ago that cause a chain reaction that change the whole world to a planet that we see today. I will use 11,500 to 12,500 years ago as a time frame.

Let start by observing today’s world map. We see all the continents, all the oceans, poles, islands, seas and those great cracks at the bottom of the ocean that form the earth tectonic plates. Those plates have shape out world expanding ever so often causing areas to rise and others to fall.

2. EARTH MOVEMENT (TECTONIC PLATES)

Those plates have pushed and pulled our continents forcing them to our present day shapes.

JDCH_Pangea

Now, if that is the case, where the great “PANGAEA”, the one super continent hypothesis does come from?

3. SUPER CONTINENT HYPOTHESIS

Why is it that the scientific community wants us to believed that at one point all of the earth continents were all one big happy family?

Pangaea

If we look at the current tectonic plates, this hypothesis has no basis. If we analyze the current plate movement there is no way, not even in million years, the earth went from one single land mass to today continents.

4. EARTH CRUST on the MOVE

So, why are our scientists still believed in this hypothesis? Why not taking the time and study what really happened on earth.

We should take planet earth as a crime scene and take it apart piece by piece.

To start with, let review what we know about the center of the earth. It is constantly moving as well as the earth crust. It continually recycles itself (in millions of year’s term).

EarthCrust

Earth is always renewing itself. Expanding in some areas and shrinking in others. Looking at our current map you can see that there are four major ridges around the world pushing and pulling, shaping our globe. They are the Atlantic Ocean Ridge, Indian Ocean Ridge, Pacific Ocean Ridge and one last ridge that goes around the world near Antarctic.

EarthCrustRidges

All those ridges and faults have created all those tectonic plates that constantly are on the move. The ever pressure of the plates pushing and compressing the earth crust push upward folded strata creating new land as well as new mountains.

FoldedStrata

This pushing, pulling and grinding has shape the planet to our current model.

plates_movements

So, why not reverse the plates and see what happens?

5. UNDERWATER CRACKS and THE TREE RINGS

Now, let take those ridges at the bottom of the ocean. As I call them “cracks at the bottom of the ocean”, they are expanding pushing our continents upward ever so often lifting the earth ever higher in some areas and submerging other.

oceanic-cracks

Like the ring on a tree ever expanding year after year, the ridges at the bottom of the ocean keep expanding years after years. Here is my idea, let’s reverse the earth grows and push the continents back to its beginnings. Back to a point where all land masses where just below the surfaces of the water.

tree_rings

6. WORLD BEFORE IMPACT

Well, here it is my “artist concept” of earth without the ridges, back before the ever expanding cracks at the bottom of the ocean. Here I have earth with the ice caps at the pole larger than today’s ice cap.

It’s interesting to point out the shape of Europe. During my research I found numerous ancient maps that almost match my interpretation of Europe before the expanding ocean ridges. Also, I show two islands that represent the ever illusive Lemuria and Plato’s famous Atlantis. Yes, Atlantis, believe it or not, everyone miss this island location. As I will show, it is right before our eyes for years and no one could figure it out.

world_before_impact

Here are two examples of ancient maps matching my concept of ancient Europe. They have a very good resemblance of my interpretation of planet earth after reversing all underwater ridges.

7. CELESTIAL IMPACT

Well, what happened to earth? Let beging with a celestial object with a tremendous impact on earth. Yes, that it is how we start. Where is that big impact? We all know that a large impact cause large destruction on earth, devastaded all life forms and brought the planet to almost extintion. But, why have we not found that ilusive celestial body impact? Where are scientist looking for it? I have no idea, but right before our eyes there is a finger print of a massive impact. One that it is so hard to miss.

celestial_Impact

Here is a question; what are the chances that a celestial impact will hit dead center on a continent?

There are only two chances for this to happen:

  1. someone aims a weapon right at the center of the continent, or
  2. the celestial body impact on earth creates the continent/island.

My opinion, I like to believe that the celestial impact created the island.

8. AUSTRALIA

If that is the case, let’s pick Australia as our impact point. Look around at the sea floor around Australia and you can see the finger prints of a massive impact. We can tell that the celestial object was traveling south to north. The impact created a massive ripple north of the island as well as two shockwave on either of the island (east and west).

Australia1So let run some line using a large crater in Australia. The impact creater is located dead center on the island of Australia. Same distance from south to north as to east to west. The shock wave are at equal distance from the island at either side (east and west). So, again, what are the chances of this happening, a celestial object impact dead center on an island or the impact created the island?

Australia2

To further explore and analyze this impact, I have set side by side a map of Australia and a sketch of the Tunguska impact in Russia. Take a look at the shape and the location of the impact. They are very similar.

Australia_Tunguska

9. EARTH TILT

With this massive celestial object impact on earth at south to north direction, it was so massive that caused the earth to tilt to its current 23 degrees of tilt and possible slowdown earth rotation changing our calendar time from 360 to 365 days. The original impact occurred at an angle between 35 and 45 degrees with Australia final rest place at approximately 63 degrees from today’s axis.

Earth_tilt

10. SEQUENCE of EARTH MOVEMENT

This massive impact caused the earth crust to crack like an eggs shell. The crack went around the earth. This impact creates a super Tsunami that devastated all small island as well as all coastal areas around the world.

Sequence1

The crack continue north bound toward the North Pole. This massive impact caused a tremendous amount of water to fly off to the upper atmosphere, then returning as torrential rain as never seen before. With the rain, rocks and debris also came down all around the earth. This torrential rain, Tsunamis and earthquake can be the description of our Biblical deluge.

Sequence2

This impact with it massive pressure from within the earth started to push those cracks expanding and re-shaping planet earth. Adding to massive Tsunamis, torrential rain, large earthquake started to shake the planet to its foundation. This impact was about to destroy our planet forever.

Sequence3

The massive expanding ridges at the ocean floor began to push the newly created plates upward pushing land and island into each other. Massive rain, Tsunamis, earthquakes, and volcanic activities were at work shaping our planet giving it a new face.

Sequence4

Three islands in today’s America’s area are push against each other creating North, South, Central America and the Caribbean.

Sequence5

The continuing expansion start to push a number of island in to what is today Africa. Atlantis, South Africa and Madagascar are all push into each other forming the continent of Africa.

Sequence6

Also, as a result of this massive impact, “LEMURIA” begins to disappear in to the Pacific Ocean. India is smash against Europe continent and Australia begins to emerge from the ocean.

Sequence7

The ridges continue to expand with the Americas and Africa beginning to shape up and “LEMURIA” continue to despair into the Pacific Ocean. At this point North Africa pivots north causing a break at the Gibraltar strait and at what is known today as Istanbul causing a massive amount of water to rush into the Mediterranean Sea adding fuel to that massive deluge.

Sequence8

Slowly the Americas start coming in to today’s shape, “LEMURIA” has totally disappear, India has become part of the continent and Africa has almost swallow Atlantis.

Sequence9

Now Australia, America, Europe and Africa are at their final stage with new continents being uplifted and oceans and seas settling down to earth current design.

Sequence_10The world has been force to a new shape by a celestial object that may have wipe out most of the entire living thing over the land. It was catastrophic, of Biblical proportions that almost wiped-out everything and everyone from planet earth.

Sequence11

So, by now, most of the ice caps at the poles have melted and our planet is rested and quiet again. For those few spices left on the planet fall the arduous job of repopulate the planet. The few humans that remains will start to settle new communities, rebuild tribes that eventually become earth new countries.

Sequence12

11. ATLANTIS

At the end, Plato was right about Atlantis. It is known today as Richat Structure in North Africa.

RichatStructure_2RichatStructure4

RichatStructure_3

Center is Richat Structure and two sketches from Plato’s descriptions:

Richat_Plato

Another photo of Richat Structure with an artist sketch of Plato’s descriptions of Atlantis illustrates the similarities. The shape, measurements and soil composition of this structure in North Africa fit perfectly with Plato’s description of Atlantis.

Richat_Atlantis

If we move the ridge grows back, Richat Structure will be sitting on the Atlantic.

Looking at the map including Spain, Richat Structure will be sitting outside the Gibraltar.

RichatStructure_midAtlantic

Here is part of North Africa with two examples of ancient Atlantis maps. The shape, measurements (345 x230 mi) and the location of the primary city match perfectly.

Africa_Atlantis

12. DELUGE

As we describe previously, this massive celestial impact had the power to create our Biblical deluge. This impact created a massive tsunami that created a large wall of water that started to move inland. An enormous amount of water blasted up to the upper atmosphere returning to earth as a torrential rain, as quoted “Opening Heaven flood gates”.

Deluge_by_asteroid_impact

13. CONCLUSIONS

  • A celestial object impacts earth creating what is known today as Australia.
  • This massive impact cracked the bottom of the ocean and forces earth to tilt 23 degrees.
  • This impact created a massive Tsunami that devastated planet earth.
  • A massive amount of water went up in to the atmosphere and came down as torrential rain.
  • Also, debris from the impact was scattered around the planet.
  • The torrential rain and massive Tsunamis were the cause for the Biblical deluge.
  • Constant movement of the plates creates worldwide earthquakes and increase volcanic activities.
  • The constant expansion of the underwater ridges continues to push island and continents in to each other and other land masses disappeared under the seas.
  • And finally, Plato’s Atlantis disappeared and was submerged, and reappears as part of North Africa.

We can see that the facts for our planet crime scene are evident and overwhelming. How much proof do we need and why science is not investigating?
Let open a discussion to prove or disapprove this overwhelming evidence.

Ancient

Could the age of the “Cheops pyramid” be 237 thousand years old?

Could the age of the "Cheops pyramid" be 237 thousand years old? 97

Many of you have probably read the version that in the sizes and proportions of the Cheops pyramid, certain parameters of the Earth and secret knowledge of ancient civilizations are “encrypted”. Two or three centuries ago (including, for example, Isaac Newton), and many scientists of the XIX and XX centuries, still tried to decipher all these secrets. 

In particular, many have tried to determine the length, etc. “Sacred cubit” (“pyramidal cubit”) – measures of the length of the architects and builders of the pyramid, which supposedly was also the key to many of its secrets.

So, on the Internet you can find publications of modern popularizers, which assert, in particular, that the number obtained from dividing the length of the base of the Cheops pyramid by the length of this “pyramidal cubit” is very close to the average duration of the modern tropical year.

An interesting way of dating the age of the pyramid

The essence of this method is as follows: if the architects of the pyramid really encrypted in its proportions the duration of their year, then, given the slowing down of the Earth’s rotation, the age of the pyramid can be calculated. For example, if the length of the year at the time of the construction of the pyramid was 0.01 days less than in our time, then, knowing the rate of deceleration of the Earth’s rotation (1.8 milliseconds per 100 years), you can calculate when it was.

But don’t rush to the calculations! There are “pitfalls” (which, by the way, were not taken into account in this theory). 

The Earth not only slows down its rotation, but also increases in size

“Over time, the radius of the globe, surface area, and mass increase. And the larger the Earth becomes, the faster it grows. Empirically, according to various sources, an exponential law of the increase in the radius of the globe with time has been established. Currently, the Earth’s growth rate is at its maximum, and the Earth’s radius is increasing by at least 2 centimeters per year.”

VF Blinov – The Growing Earth: from planets to stars
Planet Earth is growing (picture from the above article)
Planet Earth is growing

It is also possible that tens or hundreds of thousands of years ago, the Earth’s radius increased faster than in our time (and could change even faster during the years of planetary catastrophes (like about 10 800 years ago BC).

Riddles of the “pyramidal elbow”: Isaac Newton and Khesi-Ra

But this means that the mysterious “pyramidal elbow” during the construction of the pyramid, if it was one ten-millionth part of the Earth’s radius (as many of its researchers believed), it was not from the current radius, but from the one that was many millennia (or even tens millennia), – during the construction of the pyramid. Some scientists understood this even in the 19th century. Thus, the well-known historian and educator James Bonwick (1811-1906) wrote in 1877 in his book:

“Isaac Newton wrote a work in Latin entitled” The sacred elbow of the Jews and the elbows of some peoples in which, according to the measurements of the greatest Egyptian pyramid, made by Mr. John Greaves, the ancient elbow of Memphis is established “, where, in particular, he noted that in the Ancient Egypt before the elbow length of 0.5 m, apparently, was preceded by another, longer length, which could be about 63.5 cm. “

And then James Bonwick writes about the book of the American scientific educator John Taylor “The Great Pyramid: Who Was It Built And For What Purpose?” (published in 1856), in particular:

“… Mr. Taylor confuses us with his assertion that the length of the (pyramidal) elbow before the Flood was 24.9 inches (63.25 cm), and after this catastrophe it began to be equal to 25 inches (63.5 cm .) and both the elbow, according to Mr. Taylor, were sent over … Mr. Taylor suggests that the Flood had on the world of such a devastating effect – although geologists and could not find at least one tangible evidence that a flood at all took place – that the diameter of the Earth has become smaller by almost 59.55 km in comparison with the antediluvian.”

Are there ancient Egyptian depictions of people with this mysterious “pyramidal elbow”? In addition to the chief priest of Heliopolis, the legendary Imhotep, another name is associated with the construction (or with the repair) of the pyramids under Cheops, perhaps less well-known, but no less great. 

Khesi-Ra, “the chief of doctors, the priest of Horus, the chief architect of the pharaoh, the Supreme chief of the ten of the South” – this is not a complete list of his regalia, known from the studies of his personal tomb, which has been preserved.

Khesi-Ra is considered by some, the main “designer” of the Great Pyramids (or, we add, the chief engineer for repair and restoration). Khesi-Ra knew the secrets of proportions, golden sections, according to which the pyramids were built.

The images on the panels-boards of Khesi-Ra (see figure below) represent a whole spectrum, a developed canon of golden sections – various measures that were used in the construction (or restoration) of the pyramids. These measures were associated not only with the golden sections, they also encrypted many of the knowledge of the priests of Upper and Lower Egypt.

Juni 1935) derivative work: JMCC1 (talk) – Hesy -Ra_CG1426.jpg, Public domain

But what was the length of the “pyramidal elbow” during the construction of the pyramids? So, a vicious circle? To calculate the length of the year of the construction time, encoded in the length of the pyramid base, you need to know the length of the “pyramidal cubit”, but this dina itself may depend on when the pyramid was erected!

Let’s take the bull by the horns!

And let’s proceed from the fact that the “pyramidal elbow” as a measure of length had to fit an integer number of times at least one (most likely in the “supporting”) base of the pyramid. In addition, most likely its length did not differ much from that which was accepted by many Egyptologists since the 19th century (and still) (in the book of James Bonwick, several more names are listed, except for Taylor). 

In general, the measure of length “cubit” in that century had not yet been forgotten in Europe: for example, in the physics textbook of 1831 (see the Wikipedia article “Elbow”), the lengths of the “cubit” are given in more than ten cities of Western Europe, and most of these ” cubits “has a length of 59 to 69 cm.

So, we are looking for a “pyramidal elbow” about 63 cm long, which fits an integer number of times into one of the four sides of the base of the pyramid. According to Wikipedia (article “Pyramid of Cheops”), their length is as follows: north – 230.253 m; south – 230.454 m; west – 230.357 m; east – 230.394 m. Note here also that the length of the lateral rib (initially): 230.33 m (according to calculations), according to the Wikipedia article “Pyramid of Cheops”.

It is logical to take the north side as the support one, and we will easily find that the 0.63083 m long “pyramidal elbow” fits along the length of the northern base … exactly 365 times! – A good start to storm this puzzle!

The next most important side of the pyramid is the eastern one. If only because the Sun and Sirius rise there (announcing the flood of the Nile). Then the average length of a year during the construction of the pyramid = 230.394 \ 0.63083 = 365.2235943.

What is the length of the tropical year in our century? In Wikipedia (in the article “Tropical Year”) we can see the following data (for 2000):

Between two March equinoxes: 365.242374 days

Between two June solstices: 365.241626 days

Between two September equinox% 365.242018 days

Between two December solstices: 365.242740 days

As you know, in Ancient Egypt, the New Year began in the summer (with the flooding of the Nile). Therefore, we must take the number in the second line (between the two June solstices), i.e. 365.241626 days.

The slowdown compared to the current average duration is 365.241626 minus 365.2235943 = 0.018031 days, or almost exactly 1558 seconds. Now remember that the rate of deceleration of the Earth’s rotation is 1.8 milliseconds per day every 100 years.

This means that every 100 years the duration of the tropical year increases by 0.0018 x 365.23 = 0.6574 seconds. Consequently, 1558 seconds run over 2369.94 centuries = 236,994 years … Well, by a round count, 237,000 years ago!

Conclusions and discussion of the result

So the Cheops pyramid was erected 237,000 years ago?

Note, however, that the accuracy of the proposed method depends very much on the accuracy of determining the initial lengths of the pyramid’s bases: with an average base length of about 230.36 meters, an error of 0.5 cm changes the result by about 100,000 years. In most sources, according to the sizes of the pyramids, they are indicated with an accuracy of a centimeter (in the Wikipedia article “Pyramid of Cheops” – up to a millimeter).

If we assume that the initial lengths are set with an accuracy of mm, then the error of our calculations would be about plus / minus 20,000 years, but rather we should focus on an error of 0.5 cm. So, with an accuracy of determining the initial base lengths of 0, 5 cm is more correct to say that the pyramid was erected within 137 – 337 thousand years ago. And this is provided that the deceleration of the Earth’s rotation throughout all these hundreds of thousands of years remained equal to about 1.8 ms / day per 100 years!

However, this is an interesting result. This period in the history of the Earth ( 137 – 337 thousand years ago ) is the emergence of the Cro-Magnons (and mitochondrial Eve) in South Africa, and then (about 100,000 years ago) their exit through the territory of present-day Egypt to Eurasia. In general, there is no doubt that the Cro-Magnons reached the territory of present-day Egypt from South Africa no later than the upper limit of the time of the pyramid erection, which we determined.

Pyramid of Cheops in the 19th century (photo from Wikipedia article “Pyramid of Cheops”, Public domain

If we take into account our assumption that the Cro-Magnons were in fact the first Sumerians created by their masters (Anunnaki) to help in their work (mining in South Africa) – if we also take this into account, then we can put forward and version about the purpose of the creation of these pyramids, and that it was the Anunnaki who built them then.

But what can the western and southern bases of the pyramid show? I suppose that a calculation similar to the one carried out in the article on the western base will show the time of arrival of aliens on Earth (approximately 420,000 BC), and on the southern base (the longest, 230, 454 m), the calculation will show a certain boundary in the future, which the creators of the pyramid considered important for the Earth (for humanity, or for their stay here). 

Throughout its existence, the pyramid has probably been overhauled and restored several times (and maybe more often); last time in the third millennium BC, during the reign of Pharaoh Cheops.

Archaeologists have discovered “unknown” constellations in an Egyptian temple

Archaeologists have discovered "unknown" constellations in an Egyptian temple 98
Previously unknown ancient Egyptian constellations found © Live Science

A team of scientists from Germany and Egypt, which carried out work in the ancient temple of Esna, found references to previously unknown ancient Egyptian constellations, but so far they cannot link them to existing ones.

In Egypt, archaeologists have discovered images of unknown constellations during the restoration of an ancient temple. This is reported by LiveScience.

Restoration work is being carried out in the 2,000-year-old temple by experts from Germany and Egypt. During the removal of soot and dust from the walls, drawings began to appear, with which the ancient Egyptians decorated the temple.

“The carvings and hieroglyphs look so vivid as if they were drawn yesterday. But we are not repainting anything, we are just removing the soot,” Christian Leitz says, professor of Egyptology at the University of Tübingen.

During the restoration, researchers cleaned up ancient carved scenes depicting constellations, including the Big Dipper and Orion. Scientists have also found previously unknown constellations, including a constellation called “Apedu n Ra” or “Geese of Ra”, which are the ancient Egyptian sun gods.

Mentioning these constellations, without depicting them, does not yet allow us to say which star clusters are in question.

The first modern description of a Greco-Roman temple in the city of Esna dates back to 1589, when it was visited by a Venetian merchant. The city of Esna, about 60 km south of the ancient capital of Luxor, used to have more temples. Two buildings were destroyed during the industrialization of Egypt, and the largest, the Temple of Esna, was used for storing cotton in the first half of the 19th century.

The sanctuary, which they decided to use as a warehouse, was prized for its location in the city center. Decades of desolation have left the temple dirty, covered in soot and bird droppings.

To date, only its vestibule remains from the temple. The large sandstone structure is supported by 24 columns, as well as 18 freestanding columns, decorated with paintings and carvings. It stretches 37 meters long, 20 meters wide and 15 meters high. But the remains of the temple are only a small fraction of its former size when it was built under the Roman emperor Claudius (reigned 41-54 AD). Scholars do not know what happened to the rest of the temple when a Venetian merchant visited it in the 16th century, little remained of the structure.

According to Leitz, the construction and decoration of the temple, including the astronomical drawings on the ceiling, could take about 200 years.

He notes that when the ancient Egyptians decorated the temple, they first drew with ink, creating sketches for carvers, and then colored the relief designs.

On the astronomical ceiling of the temple, many drawings have remained in ink, so they were found only during the restoration.

A portrait of an alien? In Bulgaria, archaeologists have found a clay mask of an unusual shape

A portrait of an alien? In Bulgaria, archaeologists have found a clay mask of an unusual shape 103
Ancient mask resembles an alien (Photo: Bulgarian National Radio)

A prehistoric clay mask or figurine without a mouth dating back to the 5th millennium BC was found in the prehistoric settlement of Salt Pit in northeastern Bulgaria.

A whimsical mask or figurine without a mouth combines human and animal features and resembles an ” alien” from a science fiction movie, archaeologists are sure.

“ Many people compare him to … an alien in a space suit,” the Bulgarian National Radio said in a statement about the discovery.

A late Eneolithic mask was found on the Provadia-Solnitsata mound in northeastern Bulgaria, its shape is close to triangular. The front side protrudes forward and contains an image of a supposedly human face, while the back side is dented and rough in shape.

According to archaeologists, each of the two corners of the upper side of the prehistoric mask or figurine has a short protrusion, “probably stylized ears.” The figurine’s ears have small holes that were used to carry or hang the artifact.

“The artifact was most likely a status symbol hanging on a person’s chest. Interestingly, there is even a hint of mouth on the artifact. But the emphasis is on the eyes – their shape, size, and the vertical polished stripes underneath say much more,” the researchers said.

The head of the archaeological team, Professor Vasil Nikolov, told Bulgarian National Radio that there is no way to know for sure what exactly the 6,000-year-old clay mask or figurine might have been used for by prehistoric people.

Judging by the two holes in the stylized ears of the mouthless mask, it could be hanging on the wall or even being a potter’s vessel lid that could be raised or lowered with a string. According to him, the image on the mask of an ” alien” is a mixture of anthropomorphic and zoomorphic features and “is strongly associated with the masculine principle.”

Two furnaces from the Early Eneolithic ( Copper Age) were excavated at the mound of the Bazovets settlement in North-Eastern Bulgaria.

One of two prehistoric kilns dating back about 7,000 years, was first partially excavated in the 2019 archaeological season. However, during the last excavations of the Bazovets mound, it was completely exposed, and a second kiln from the same structure was discovered.

During the last excavations of the mound of the Bazovetsky settlement, 57 archaeological artifacts were discovered. These include items made of flint, animal bones, horns, and ceramics, including fragments of anthropomorphic and zoomorphic figurines.
