Good day, all my fine friends out there!
Wow! What an intense last few days I have had! As I’ve mentioned before, I am a wildlife biologist (my paid profession) and the field director for the company I work for came out with one of the technicians. We had several very full and long days of work. So again I find myself apologizing for not putting out new writings last week.
This week we are going to look into monument buildings such as pyramids and ziggurats. Since it obviously took advance technology to construct, how were they built and when?
|Ziggurate of Ur|
First let’s look as see the difference between the two. Ziggurats are similar to pyramids, however they are mostly restricted to the areas of ancient mesopotamia⎯the fertile crescent--and have more of a stair step appearance. In addition they typically have seven levels that represent the “seven heavens and planes of existence” and none are as big as many pyramids, the largest being 150 feet tall. Pyramids, on the other hand can reach heights of 480 feet and are found throughout the world.

As a matter of fact, there is a lot more to pyramids than meets the eye. “For instance, the pyramid [Great Pyramid of Giza, Egypt] is precisely aligned true north within 3/60th of a degree and its other three sides also directly face the [other] cardinal directions. The base, covering 13 acres, is only 7/8th of an inch out of level. The steep angle of the sides, unique to the pyramids of Giza, is 51 degrees 51 minutes. The Great Pyramid and its two neighbors are astronomically aligned precisely to the constellation Orion. Each one representing a star in the stellar belt….They also used a mortar, stronger than rock, to join the casing stones together⎯most with less than 1/50th of an inch between them….and moving over a million limestone blocks, averaging 2.5 - 15 tons each, with the largest about 80 tons, and the Great Pyramid of Giza becomes an even greater mystery.”1 It would take a great deal of advanced technology to pull of a feat like that. But this wasn’t only done once. It was done many times all over the world. All including the precise line up in the cardinal directions and astrological alignments which confounds archeologists even to today. So how were these great building...built? The answer is; with ancient technology that has been lost over the years.

As to when were they build. Well, all this points directly back to the tower of Babel and the dispersal of those people immediately after the confusion of language. They took the knowledge of building monuments with them, which is evident around the world for these amazing egyptian pyramids are not the only ones around. There are pyramids in Mexico, China, Italy, Sudan, Greece, and maybe even some in Russia.

Some people think that extra terrestrials built these complicated structures. However nothing is mentioned about that in the bible. What is mentioned is clues of advanced knowledge that our ancient ancestors possessed.
Until next time, God bless and take care!
This week in the night skies; “Wednesday, October 23 Below the feet of Aquarius, off the eastern end of Capricornus, are the Helix Nebula and a crowd of lesser-known galaxies. Now that the Moon is gone from the after-dinner sky, explore them with your telescope using Sue French's Deep-Sky Wonders column, chart, and photos in the October Sky & Telescope, page 56.”2
For the southern hemisphere, “The Orionids are normally a worthwhile shower, best seen between 2-4 am, the radiant being just under Betelgueuse, the bright red star in Orion.
This year the just past Full Moon's light will significantly lower rates. The best viewing is the morning of the 22nd, when between 3-5 am under dark skies you should see about a meteor every 5-10 minutes.
You can find out the preidcted rates for your location using the NASA meteor flux estimator (use 8 Orionids and make sure you set the dates to 21-22 October 2013).”3
