MEGALITHS YOUR HAVEN’T HEARD OF
Greetings all of my friends out there (that is anyone reading this blog)!
How are all of you? Just to let you all know there are hundreds of you fine people out there seeking and learning about the truth through this blog site. In case I haven’t mentioned it before, thank you. Thank you for your interest,
support and comments. It is always encouraging to hear from you. And please, when you purchase one of my novels, please write a review in Amazon. You don’t have to have purchased the book on Amazon to write a review and it helps your fellow readers to learn what you think. One more favor to ask…please pass the link to my book and/or video trailer on to you FaceBook friends. It will help this ministry to spread. Thank you very much.
Now, speaking of spreading the word, I want to share with you this week about seven ancient megaliths you most likely
So let’s take a look at one that is closer to my home than one would think; the American Stonehenge…
The American Stonehenge is an archaeological site consisting of a maze of man-made stone chambers, walls and ceremonial meeting places. It is composed of a number of large rocks and stone structures scattered around 30 acres. This site is most likely the oldest man-made permanent structure constructed in the United States. According to the Egyptian time scale (which is what the secular world still uses today), it dates over 4000 years old. (See previous blogs for more information on this).
Interestingly enough, inscriptions are found chiseled into therock throughout the site. Dr. Barry Fell of Harvard University and his team have determined this written language to include Ogham, Phoenician and Iberian Punic Script. Now according to the Egyptian timescale (over 4000 years old), this would place the construction and writing of the site just before the global flood. If this were true then the site wouldn’t exist. It would have been destroyed in The Noachian Flood. However, it would fit nicely with the Biblical time scale, where shortly after the flood, the sole language of humans was split by Creator God into many tongues, forcing the human populous to scramble and multiply over the entire earth. (You can read about this in by first novel if you would like to learn about this history in an entertaining way and also to research the non-fiction appendix in the back of the books). And this is just what we find today—many languages scattered throughout the world. The languages inscribed on
the rocks at the American Stonehenge can even be traced back to Noah’s grandsons and great grandsons through their names. (You can also read about this in previous blogs.)
So, like Stonehenge in England, this one was built by ancient people. But why? It is thought the site was used as both an astronomical and sacrificial site since it contains an accurate astronomical calendar and an altar complete with drainage grooves. Stones had cut outs and holes drilled at were, and still can be, used to determine specific solar and lunar events of the year.
Another, even older site can be found in Israel in the Golan Heights. It is thought to be as old as 3500 to 4500 BC according to the Egyptian time scale. It is called Rujm el Hiri (رجم الهري) in Arabic, which mean the ‘stone heap of the wild cat’. In Hebrew it is named Gilgal Refaim (גִּלְגַּל רְפָאִים ), or the ‘wheel of giants’. This ancient name may refer to the Rephaites (giants) mentioned in the Bible. “Rujm el Hiri was first discovered during an archaeological survey carried out by Shmarya Gutman and Claire Epstein in 1967-1968 after
the Six-Day War. Full-scale archaeological excavations were carried out from 1989 to 1992 by Moshe Kochavi and Yonathan Mizrachi of Tel Aviv University. The site was excavated later by Yosef Garfinkel and Michael Freikman of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem in 2007.”1
|This leads to the burial chamber|
This mysterious archeological site is best seen from above. On ground level it mostly looks like a jumble of rocks. It consists of five immense, concentric, rings and semi-rings of stones that have been piled up. It is estimated that “40,000 metric tons of partially worked black basalt stone, in the form of a ring or a wheel, surrounding a central cairn that was once a tomb. The central stack stands around 15 feet (4.6 meters) high and 65 feet (20 meters) in diameter. The surrounding rings which are around 8 feet (2.5 meters) tall. The entire site has a 520 feet (158 meters) diameter.”2
So, you might be asking, where is the megaliths in this jumbleof rocks? They are buried, supporting the rocks above from a single-chamber megalithic tomb at the center of the ancient mound in the middle of the circles. The chamber consists of two or more vertical megaliths, five feet tall, supporting a large flat horizontal capstone. Under this chamber is a 10-foot-long access corridor. No human remains were found within the tomb or anywhere else. Also no valuables were found indicating tomb robbers looted the remains. So with this speculation deep in their minds, Israeli archeologists came to the conclusion that the site could be either a ritual center with its function as a burial place for an important leader; or an ancient place of worship or a place to celebrate ceremonies. Yonathan Mizrachi and Anthony Aveni claim that the site is for primitive astronomical observations for a celestial calendar that measures the summer solstice and the spring and fall equinoxes. Or, they thought it could be a calendar for
agricultural purposes or ceremonies during the longest and shortest days of the year. Dr. Rami Arav of the University of Nebraska, proposed the site was built for ‘excarnation’ by ancient Chalcolithic inhabitants. Excarnation is the removal of flesh from the bones for placement in ossuaries, (bone boxes much smaller than a coffin). “The flesh of the bodies of the deceased was permitted to be consumed by birds of prey. Then they would free the bones of their flesh and placed in ossuaries, houses or miniature granaries.”3 Interestingly enough, young David spoke of this (referring to Goliath and his family) as is recorded in scripture; “This day the Lord will deliver you into my hands, and I’ll strike you down and cut off your head. This very day I will give the carcasses of the Philistine army to the birds and the wild animals, and the whole world will know that there is a God in Israel.” (1 Samuel 17:46). So as
God bless, and take care,
