THE ANTIKYTHERA MECHANISM

Greetings all my fine friends out there! How are you all this week? I am well if you don’t include all the allergies the this old body is struggling with, lol! I am busy doing some re-writes on my novel then back to the editor. Things are moving along but always slower than I like. 

Speaking of moving along, have you ever heard of the Antikythera mechanism? It is a fascinating piece of ancient technology that defies traditional beliefs about early man’s intelligence. “The Antikythera mechanism was discovered in 1900 during the recovery of a shipwreck off of the Greek Island, Antikythera, in waters 60 meters deep.”1 “From a distance, they look like rocks with patches of mold. Get closer, though, and the sight is stunning. Crammed inside, obscured by corrosion, are traces of technology that appear utterly modern: gears with neat triangular teeth (just like the inside of a clock) and a ring divided into degrees (like the protractor you used in school). Nothing else like this has ever been discovered from antiquity. Nothing as sophisticated, or
even close, appears again for more than a thousand years…X-ray imaging in the 1970s and 1990s revealed that the device must have replicated the motions of the heavens. Holding it in your hands, you could track the paths of the Sun, Moon and planets with impressive accuracy. One investigator dubbed it ‘an ancient Greek computer.’ …The Antikythera mechanism was similar in size to a mantel clock, and bits of wood found on the fragments suggest it was housed in a wooden case. Like a clock, the case would’ve had a large
circular face with rotating hands. There was a knob or handle on the side, for winding the mechanism forward or backward. And as the knob turned, trains of interlocking gearwheels drove at least seven hands at various speeds. Instead of hours and minutes, the hands displayed celestial time: one hand for the Sun, one for the Moon and one for each of the five planets visible to the naked eye—Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn. A rotating black and silver ball showed the phase of the Moon. Inscriptions explained which stars rose and set on any

The lower back 
dial gives the cycle of a single synodic month,
particular date. There were also two dial systems on the back of the case, each with a pin that followed its own spiral groove, like the needle on a record player. One of these dials was a calendar. The other showed the timing of lunar and solar eclipses.”2


 

“X-rays have shown that
there are at least 30 different types of gears used in the device, and on the mechanism’s door plates are about 2,000 letters that are considered to be something like a usage manual.”3

progress of the sun and moon through the zodiac
“Though the pointers on the front face didn’t survive, Alexander Jones, a historian at the Institute for the Study of the Ancient World in New York, says an inscription reveals that they carried colored balls: fiery red for Mars, gold for the Sun.”4 It is believed the mechanism is of Greek origin from around 200 BC, however, “The tradition of making such mechanisms could be much older. Cicero wrote of a bronze device made by Archimedes in the third century B.C. And James Evans, a historian of astronomy at the University of Puget Sound in Tacoma, Washington, thinks that the eclipse cycle represented is Babylonian in origin and begins in 205 B.C. Maybe it was Hipparchus, an astronomer in Rhodes around that time, who worked out the math behind the device. He is known for having blended the arithmetic-based predictions of Babylonians with geometric theories favored by the Greeks.”5

Also, “There are references of such mechanisms in the works of ancient writers. In his writing, Cicero mentions an
instrument which reproduces the motions of the sun and the five planets. The device, he claimed, was built by Archimedes.”6

It is my belief that such technology had occurred much, much earlier in history—even back to before the tower of Babel when the one language was split into many. Such devices would have been few and far between, perhaps only one to each kingdom. Invaders over the centuries would have destroyed most, melting down the metal to make weapons. Only this one (to date that has been discovered), nestled in the belly of the Mediterranean Sea, survived man’s destruction. 

Until next time, take care and God bless,
Willow Dressel
PS: I have included in my next book, The Golden Strand of Shinar, a mechanism like this. I love to weave creation science into my novels constructing an entertaining way to read about history.

ANCIENT FRENCH TAPESTRY 

NEW DINO PICTURES

Greetings all my fine friends out there! And how do you all fare this week? Well for me, summer is here for good with temperatures sailing into the 100s F. Shade trees are a treasured commodity when it gets this hot! Hopefully all of you in the northern hemisphere are able to stay cool and those of you in the southern hemisphere are able to keep warm.

Speaking of places around the world, I would like to share some  “new” depictions of dinosaurs I “discovered” from several countries. 

“To the left is an urn from Caria, which was located in Asia
Minor (Turkey). This artifact (described in Thomas H. Carpenter's 1991 book Art and Myth in Ancient Greece: A Handbook) is estimated to be from 530 BC. It depicts what appears to be a mosasaurus with several known sea creatures. The animal behind the sea serpent is a seal, while an octopus is below the sea serpent along with what seems to be a dolphin. The thick jaws, big teeth, large eyes, and positioning of the flippers on this creature match a mosasaurus skeleton very well. Some mosasaurus species also had a narrow cranial crest behind the eye that may have had a fin attached the way it is depicted on the Carian urn. Other artifacts of interest from this region came to light after the deluge and landslide of 1971 in the small village of Girifalco.”1








“An Egyptian seal with the cartouche (official name inscribed within an oval) of Tutmosis III (appx. 1400 B.C.) depicts a Sauropterygia-like animal (type of plesiosaur). The anterior and posterior flippers are distinctively represented with the narrow connection to the rotund body of the creature. The seal is from the Mitry collection and is of unquestioned authenticity. The ancient Egyptians are known for their keen observation and accurate zoological representations, particularly with regard to sea creatures.”2













“The native American Coclé culture of Panama was discovered by A. Hyatt Verrill. He noticed the oddly pterosaur-like representations on Coclé pottery and suggested it was so realistic that these native Americans must have been influenced by fossil discoveries. He describes the depiction as having ‘beak-like jaws armed with sharp teeth, wings with two curved claws, short, pointed tail, reptilian head crest or appendages, and strong hind feet with five-clawed toes on each.’ The Coclé civilization dates from AD 1330-1520. But Verrill theorizes that such drawings were based on ‘accurate descriptions, or even drawings or carvings, of fossilized pterodayctyls’ (Verrill, A. Hyatt, Strange Prehistoric Animals and their Stories, 1948, pp. 132-133.)”3











“There are some clearly ancient engravings in dolerite and
gneiss that have been found in Bushmanland, South Africa. Amongst the many depictions, dinosaur footprints, and other artifacts in this region; two are of special interest. One resembles a sauropod dinosaur and the other looks like an attempt to depict a pterosaur.”
4








“A tapestry at Château de Blois, France, portrays a dragon (and its baby) with gnarly horns on its head that are reminiscent of the dinosaur Dracorex hogwartsia.”5






“A fascinating Chinese artifact is the Late Eastern Zhou Sauropod (Fang Jian) Ornamental box. Displaying a tridactyl foot, a long neck and a head that resembles a brachiosaur, this depiction is compelling. (Fong, Wen ed., The Great Bronze Age of China, Metropolitan Museum of Art, 1980, p. 285.)”6










Evidence of man and dinosaurs living together just keeps showing up!

Until next time, God bless and take care,

3-13 SIGNS AND SEASONS, PRE FLOOD, CELESTIAL, ORION #CHRISTIAN #CREATION SCIENCE #SIGNS AND SEASONS

Ancient Zodiac

SIGNS AND SEASONS

Good morning, good morning. What good news do you bring today? That is an ancient greeting that some remote tribes in Africa still use today. The Good news I bring you is that the sequel to  ‘Of One Tongue’, which is titled, “The Golden Strand’ and is second in the Oth series, is at the editors right now and the endorsers have copies they are reviewing. Soon my friends, soon, it will be at the publishers!

I recently gave a talk on creation science and a question was brought up in the former world before the global flood, were there seasons? Or did an asteroid or the breaking of the foundations of the earth during the flood cause the earth to wobble on its axis. God had given us a way to tell the seasons. The stars. He not only created them, “but arranged them in star groupings that could be used for ‘signs, and for seasons’ (Genesis 1:14)”1 


There is no physical evidence of an asteroid of the magnitude it would take to change the earth’s rotation ever hitting the earth. However, there is plenty of physical evidence of a global flood and the resulting cataclysmic shifting of the earth’s crust. That evidence seems like it is enough to cause a shift in the rotation of the earth to produce a wobble. Which would produce the changes in the season we experience today. 

However there is a huge flaw in this reasoning. Scripture tells us that God created and arranged the stars for signs and seasons. Some believe the seasons pertain to a monsoon or rainy season in our early history before the flood, but scripture also tells us that the first rain occurred after Noah, his family and the animals were all safely
tucked in the ark. Then it rained for forty days and forty nights. So the seasons referred to in Genesis 1:14 could not be a rainy season. Thus it must be the four seasons that we know. 

Further evidence of this is recorded in Job 38:31-33 Canst thou bind the chains of the Pleiades, or loose the bonds of Orion? Canst thou bring forth Mazzarot (the term for the twelve constellations for the Zodiac) in their times (season)? Or canst thou guide the Bear (Arcturus) with its banim (children/sons)? Knowest thou the chukkot (ordinances) of Shomayim (heaven)? Canst thou set the rule (dominion) over ha’aretz (earth)?”2 (emphasis the authors’). Orthodox Jewish Bible. Job is the oldest book in the Bible other than the beginning of Genesis.

Orion
So the only logical conclusion is that the earth had a wobble from the very beginning, put there by the Creator who “alone spreadeth out the heavens, and treadeth upon the waves of the sea. Which maketh Arcturus, Orion, and Pleiades, and the chambers of the south” (Job 9:8,9).

Since God does nothing without a holy purpose, we can be sure that these sidereal signs were not to be used as astrological signs. God’s word, in fact, forbids the practice of astrology (e.g., Isaiah 47:12–14). The constellations must all in some way have testified of the coming Savior. “For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ” (II Corinthians 4:6).”

The testimony of God’s promises are written indelibly in the heavens, for all who have eyes and hearts to see.

Until next time, God bless and take care,

#ANCIENT MAN #NAMPA FIGURINE #NAMPA LAVA FLOW #CHRISTIAN #CREATION SCIENCE #BILLY GRAHM CRUSADES #HOME SCOOL #ONE MILLION MOMS #ANSWERS IN GENESIS #INSTITUTE FOR CREATION RESEARCH



ANCIENT MANS CREATIVITY

Hello everyone!
Just a quick little tidbit today….but I do pray all is well with you. I have deadlines to meet for my new novel, but I thought you would enjoy this article:

“As man digs and scrapes and drills into the mysterious earth, many surprising finds are made. It follows that mining and farming have been fruitful sources of curious finds in the past. We can feel strong regrets that as both occupations have become more and more mechanized, fewer and fewer finds of value for scientific study will occur. The following interesting items make two important points. If conventional dating is followed, ancient man seems to be far more ancient than he should be. In fact, he must have been thriving before he is supposed to have evolved. Second, ancient man was a very sophisticated person. There is no indication that his
brain gradually evolved. Both of these conclusions, obviously, are completely opposite to evolutionary theory. 

“One of the most prodigious lava flow in the history of the world occurred in the Pacific Northwest. The lava spread over an estimated 200,000 square miles in depths up to 5,000 feet. In 1972, a competent geologist stated that the eruptions took place a mere fifteen million years ago. Much of Washington, Oregon, Idaho and portions of neighboring states were covered. The immense age of the deposit ‘can easily be imagined by the fact that the Snake River has cut canyons through the deposit to depths of up to 3000 feet’.

“Still, there are several curious things about this lava flow. Many competent observers have commented on the remarkable freshness of the deposit, as though the eruptions took place in very recent times. A startling find was made in 1889 near Nampa, Idaho. While workers were boring an artesian well, a small figurine of baked clay was extracted from a depth of 320 feet. Above the figurine, the drill—inside a 6-inch tubing—had cut through fifteen feet of basalt lava and many other strata. The find has never been challenged except to say that it was impossible. The conclusion is unmistakable. Before the basalt flowed, sophisticated humans lived in the area (Velikovsky, 1955, p.87; Pensee , May 1972, 2:2, p.18). Ancient men lived in California [I would like to add here that if this is pre-flood artifacts California would not have been California]. They worked the hardest stones, fabricated perfect granite mortars and dishes, used a circular, skillet-like vessel made of lava, hard as iron, which
had three legs and a spout, made polished stone axes with perfect holes drilled in them for a handle, and fashioned ladles, disks or quoits. They were able to bore into the bowels of mountains for gold and silver. One ancient shaft was drilled 210 feet down into solid rock. An altar for worship was found there. Other finds include the following: a mortar for grinding gold ore at a depth of 300 feet in a mining tunnel, a mortar and pestle weighing 30 pounds, beads, perforated stones, a 40-pound oval granite dish. One human skull was found at a depth of 130 feet under five beds of lava and tufa separated by layers of gravel. Man came before the lava flowed, and deep canyons have been cut by rivers since the lava spread. An amazing number of stone relics have been found. The finding are almost always in gold-bearing rock or gravels (Victoria Institute , 1879, 15:193-198).”1

How very interesting that artifacts such as these are not just discovered, but found in abundance. It is imperative that we teach our children this unaltered history that evolutionists are so desperate to hide. Why isn’t this taught in public schools? Because the facts back up the Bible.

Until next time, take care and God bless,

WHAT ELSE DO THE RECORDS SHOW US?

Hi everyone!

Did you enjoy last week’s blog? The footprints of giants found throughout the earth is really quite extraordinary and extremely fascinating. So I looked into giantism and found a few more amazing facts…

Beginning in the 1800’s many written accounts of giant human fossils have been discovered. Giant tools (meaning only giant humans could have utilized them) also have been found in many places. In addition, you can find photos of very large human skeletons. Be careful if you choose to look on your own as there are many pictures that have been photoshopped. However, the following photos I felt comfortable with, having come from a reliable source and
appear genuine and trustworthy. 



This giant skull is embedded in solid rock and would have been cast during the global flood.1
















This giant thumb bone was found by Ron Wyatt near the Ark site in Turkey. On the left is the giant human thumb bone held up next to an average sized male human thumb. The

Proxima Phalanx bone is the one below the bone containing the thumbnail. As you can see, this phalanx bone is at least twice the length of an average sized one. An x-ray of a typical man's hand and the position of the bone in question is shown on the right. This bone would have belonged to a human of very large size.2




These remains were discovered by Saudi oil industry technicians. The person they belonged to would have been between 15 and 20 feet tall. The skull is weathered and is consistent with the technician's description that the skull was originally found partially uncovered by winds.3  






This picture is of a nine foot giant discovered in a Utah Grave. Notice the unusual size of the skull.4




Five giant Incan skulls were found  in Ica, Peru, and Merida, Mexico that still exist on display. They have a brain cavity area ranging from 2200 CC to 3200 CC. Modern humans average a size of 1450 CC. The largest human skull measured to date is 1980 CC. All these skulls have post-flood human characteristics. They are huge in size and secular scientists say they come from an unknown species. However, according to science, giants do not exist…but the fact is these skulls are still viewable today.

I myself spoke with an elderly gentle men who had related to me that when he was a young boy of about ten, he visited the Smithsonian museum. His uncle worked there at the time and took him to the basement where they house museum quality artifacts that aren’t on display. What his uncle showed him awed him even to today; a number on 16 foot human skeletons. What the smithsonian did with them he doesn’t know. It does seem to be a black hole.6

“Well-known zoologist Ivan T. Sanderson (a frequent guest on Johnny Carson's TONIGHT SHOW in the 1960s--usually with exotic animals) reported that in 1944 (during World War II), an army engineer with whom he corresponded told of how his crew had been bulldozing through sedimentary rock when it stumbled upon what appeared to be a graveyard. In it were crania that measured from 22 to 24 inches from base to crown nearly three times as large as an adult human skull.

“Had the humans to which these skulls belonged been properly proportioned, they undoubtedly would have been at least 12 feet tall or taller. He delivered the evidence to the Smithsonian Institute....where it was never heard nor seen again.  Sanderson was quite puzzled by this and later wrote: "...is it that these people cannot face rewriting all the textbooks?".

“There are reports regarding the Smithsonian Institute receiving extraordinary artifacts and evidence of this nature from dutiful citizens who thought they were handing over their findings to the highest and most reliable authorities...only to realize later that Smithsonian had made it all 'disappear'.  Hollywood has even made a veiled (snickering?) reference to this bizarre trend: Recall the famous Smithsonian warehouse scene at the end of the Indiana Jones movie.

One such report from a former employee of the Smithsonian (who lost his job because of his opposition to their strange policy), tells of one occasion where the Smithsonian people actually took a barge full of extraordinary artifacts out into the ocean where they dumped it.”7


Now let’s take a look at some more recent giants…


Russian giant Machnov (7’ 11”) in London at the Hippodrome.











Martin Bates and Anna Swan wedding in 1871









Known as the Humbolt jaw bone, it is most diffently that of a giant. A replica of an average sized mans jaw is placed next to it for comparison.






 Schloss Ambras Castle. This 2.6m armor suit was manufactured for giant Bartlmä Bon. It is a real suit of armor made for a real man in the 15th century.





Ella Ewing, born in 1872 in Northeast Missouri, was the tallest woman in the United States during her lifetime. She stood 7 4.5 tall. 





Afghani Giant with a USA soldier




AND at the top of the blog there is a photo of a giant Mongolian man taken in 1922.

Just an interesting side note; traits that are often found in giants are six fingers and two rows of teeth. 


Until next time, God bless and take care!
