The Story of Easter

Carolyn Rose Goyda, a Facebook Friend of Mine, sent me a copy of this yesterday and I posted it to my timeline:



And I added, "And the direct derivation of Easter is from the European Goddess of Spring Oestra, also pronounced about like Ishtar, and from which we get the word Oestrus (Estrus)-when an animal gets into heat. And Oestra is also associated with rabbits and eggs."

But then Kyle Germann added "That might be Lilith" and "She might be the First Vampire"

So I elaborated, "Actually the picture is regularly called that. BUT Lilith might only be a form of Ishtar. Ishtar was also sacrificed by her sister Ereshkigal AND this could be Ereshkigal AND Ereshkigal could ALSO be the same as Ishtar. Its complicated. But the fact that she died-and-came-back is part of the same Goddess of Spring story, which is the same story as Snow White (who sleeps over the Winter) and Sleeping Beauty (Everything blossoms back into life when she wakes up again) http://www.tumblr.com/tagged/ereshkigal

And the Classical Goddess of Spring story is another resurrection story, the one attached to Persephone, who is taken down to Hades but returns each spring

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Persephone
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ishtar
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ereshkigal

But the notice sent in by Carolyn was a little too simplistic, the death-burial-and-resurrection was already an integral part of the ancient myths, and the return to life meant the return of fertility to the land. The story is also a good marker for cultural diffusion.

East Asian Shorelines on the Piri Reis map


Shipping, Exploring and Mapmaking in the Latest Pleistocene

ABSTRACT
The western part of the AH 919 (AD 1513) map is considered by most authors to depict the region of the Caribbean. However, Columbus believed he had been to Asia and Piri Reis wrote that the names in the western area of his AH 919 (AD 1513) map were obtained from Columbus. We considered it was necessary to re-investigate the shorelines depicted in this part of the map. We have used computer superposition to re-investigate the shorelines depicted in the western area of the map. The results suggest that the map depicts shorelines of East and Southeast Asia from the east side of the Kamchatka Peninsula in the north, to northwest Borneo in the south. Interesting results include that the Territory of Antilia is eastern China opposite Taiwan, and Island Antilia is Taiwan but showing bays of Puerto Rico; the authors suggest that the large western island is an erroneous depiction of southern Japan. Based on the superpositions and other supporting geological information, the authors suggest that the western source map used by Piri Reis (whether of Turkish origin or from Columbus) depicted shorelines which were charted prior to the Islamic and Christian eras.

INTRODUCTION
The Piri Reis AH 919 (AD 1513) map fragment (41, 51) was found during renovations of the Topkapi Palace Museum in 1929 (16, 20, 21, 28, 35, 44). The western region is thought to represent the Caribbean (16, 21, 28, 44). Hapgood (16) using a separate Grid "B" for this area identified the western continent as Central America in the vicinity of the Yucatan Peninsula and the coasts further south were suggested to be those of both Central and South America even though some locations were identified twice. The large western island he identified as Cuba.

The identifications made by others (21, 28, 44) are usually based upon inscriptions written by Piri Reis and attributed by him to Qulumbu(Columbus). These suggest that the northwestern coasts are the shorelines of Cuba (in continuity with the coasts of Panama further south) and the large western island is Hispaniola (20, 21, 28, 35, 44, 45). Columbus however believed he had been to Asia (21, 28, 37). In this paper we investigate Asia as a possible origin for the mainland depicted in the western area of the map. The results presented in this paper are essentially similar to those we have reported elsewhere (5).


 










 





 
The map at the top is my own interpretation. I think it is highly important that we have a detailed map of Sundaland and East Asia from this period, and the book Maps of the Ancient Sea Kings already supposes some of the other maps are indicating a Pleistocene Sundaland above water (Other maps show a postPleisocene Indonesia) The original would have been a Portolan or "Ports of Call" map and the area  from Borneo to Japan heavily travelled by merchant ships. We know that something similar was going on in South India at the same time from other sources. At the same time, I would not doubt that the Admiral had access to older maps of the Caribbean and South America which he also compiled with the East Asian maps, following on Columbus' maps and observations. And the three marks near "Antilla" I take to be a reference to maps of three original islands which were combined to make the map on the chart: It is already known that there is a confusion between Atlantis and Antillia, and Cipangu (Japan) on different charts. Here I suggest that  part of the problem is a mistaken combination of Antillia and Antipodes. It is also noteworthy that while Atlantis was a free island surrounded by the sea, the reconstruction used by Lacroix and Bywater calls both Taiwan and Japan peninsulas still attached to the mainland. Certainly there is a general confusion and an oversimplification going on at the time Piri Reis was compiling the old maps. He did do a quite remarkable job of preserving irreplaceable documents. And the missing sections of he map were very likely the same as the Old World mapof Ptolemy, because Pri Re'is mentioned him as a source also.

Out of Africa Date Brought Forward, or Not

Out of Africa date brought forward

March 22, 2013 by Lin Edwards

 —A study on human mitochondrial DNA has led to a new estimate of the time at which humans first began to migrate out of Africa, which was much later than previously thought.
The new study by an International group of evolutionary geneticists used mitochondrial DNA from the remains of ancient modern humans to estimate the rate of genetic mutations. Three of the skeletons were from the Czech Republic and dated at 31,000 years old, two were 14,000 years old, from Oberkassel, Germany. Another sample used was the natural mummy Ötzi the Iceman, who lived some time between 3350 and 3100 BC. The most recent skeleton was that of a man who lived in medieval France 700 years ago, while the oldest was dated at 40,000 years ago, and came from Tianyuan in China. The results suggest that the genetic divergence between African and non-African humans began between 62 and 95 thousand years ago, which tallies with other studies estimating the time through dating of stone tools and fossils, but they disagree with the results of recent genetic studies that estimated the migration began much earlier, up to 130 thousand years ago or even before. The previous studies sequenced the entire genome of living humans to count the number of genetic mutations (around 50) in newborn babies compared to the parents to determine the generational mutation rate. This then provided the a molecular "clock," which could be extrapolated backwards to date important events in human evolution.

The new study sequenced mitochondrial DNA from fossils of ancient modern humans rather than living humans. The fossils were dated using radiocarbon dating methods. Since the samples were from humans who lived up to 40,000 years ago, mutations that have occurred in the genome since they died would be missing, and the samples provided a range of calibration points for their estimation of the start of the migration.

 The disagreement in dating the migration between the new study and previous genetic research could be due to underestimating the number of new mutations in a generation of living humans because of the difficulty of discriminating between true mutations and mistaken ones and because of a desire to avoid false positives. Under-counting would lead to an older estimate for the migration from Africa and other important events. The new date, which agrees with the archaeological evidence, shows that modern humans were in Europe and Asia before and after the most recent glaciation, and they were therefore able to survive and adapt to a dramatically changing climate. The paper was published in the journal Current Biology on 21st March.

[We are not talking the same migration Out Of Africa bacause we are not talking the same populations. The older divergence accounts for an older stratum of humanity that wound up in parts of Australia and the orient: this is the older migration and this genetic series has nothing to do wityh that. This measures a SECOND Out of Africa migration which led to the peopling of most of the rety of the world and which swallowed upany remants of the older migration. The two migrations can be defined by physical types (skulls) and archaeology (stone tools) and they are separated by the major eruption of the Toba volcano in Sumatra, the greatest known of all volcanic eruptions.--DD]

Lao skull earliest example of modern human fossil in Southeast Asia        

August 20, 2012

An ancient skull recovered from a cave in the Annamite Mountains in northern Laos is the oldest modern human fossil found in Southeast Asia, researchers report. The discovery pushes back the clock on modern human migration through the region by as much as 20,000 years and indicates that ancient wanderers out of Africa left the coast and inhabited diverse habitats much earlier than previously appreciated.
The team described its finding in a paper in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. The scientists, who found the skull in 2009, were likely the first to dig for ancient bones in Laos since the early 1900s, when a team found skulls and skeletons of several modern humans in another cave in the Annamite Mountains. Those fossils were about 16,000 years old, much younger than the newly found skull, which dates to between 46,000 and 63,000 years old. "It's a particularly old modern human fossil and it's also a particularly old modern human for that region," said University of Illinois anthropologist Laura Shackelford, who led the study with anthropologist Fabrice Demeter, of the National Museum of Natural History in Paris. "There are other modern human fossils in China or in Island Southeast Asia that may be around the same age but they either are not well dated or they do not show definitively modern human features. This skull is very well dated and shows very conclusive modern human features," she said. No other artifacts have yet been found with the skull, suggesting that the cave was not a dwelling or burial site, Shackelford said. It is more likely that the person died outside and the body washed into the cave sometime later, she said. The find reveals that early modern human migrants did not simply follow the coast and go south to the islands of Southeast Asia and Australia, as some researchers have suggested, but that they also traveled north into very different types of terrain, Shackelford said. "This find supports an 'Out-of-Africa' theory of modern human origins rather than a multi-regionalism model," she said. "Given its age, fossils in this vicinity could be direct ancestors of the first migrants to Australia. But it is also likely that mainland Southeast Asia was a crossroads leading to multiple migratory paths
The discovery also bolsters genetic studies that indicate that modern humans occupied that part of the world at least 60,000 years ago, she said. "This is the first fossil evidence that supports the genetic data," she said. The researchers used radiocarbon dating and luminescence techniques to determine the age of the soil layers above, below and surrounding the skull, which was found nearly 2 1/2 meters (about 8.2 feet) below the surface of the cave. Researchers at Illinois used uranium/thorium dating to determine the age of the skull, which they determined was about 63,000 years old. Research fellow Kira Westaway, of Macquarie University in Australia (who dated the soils around the famous "hobbit" fossil found on Flores Island in Indonesia in 2003), conducted the luminescence analyses. These techniques measure the energy retained in crystalline particles in the soil to determine how much time has elapsed since the soil was last exposed to heat or solar radiation. She found that the layer of soil surrounding the fossil had washed into the cave between 46,000 and 51,000 years ago. "Those dates are a bit younger than the direct date on the fossil, which we would expect because we don't know how long the body sat outside the cave before it washed in," Shackelford said. "This fossil find indicates that the migration out of Africa and into East and Southeast Asia occurred at a relatively rapid rate, and that, once there, modern humans weren't limited to environments that they had previously experienced," she said. "We now have the fossil evidence to prove that they were there long before we thought they were there."

  (PhysOrg.com)  An international team of researchers based at the Institute of Vertebrate Paleontology and Paleoanthropology in Beijing, including a physical anthropology professor at Washington University in St. Louis, has discovered well-dated human fossils in southern China that markedly change anthropologists perceptions of the emergence of modern humans in the eastern Old World.

The research was published Oct. 25 in the online early edition of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. The discovery of early modern human fossil remains in the Zhirendong (Zhiren Cave) in south China that are at least 100,000 years old provides the earliest evidence for the emergence of modern humans in eastern Asia, at least 60,000 years older than the previously known modern humans in the region. "These fossils are helping to redefine our perceptions of modern human emergence in eastern Eurasia, and across the Old World more generally," says Eric Trinkaus, PhD, the Mary Tileston Hemenway Professor in Arts & Sciences and professor of physical anthropology. The Zhirendong fossils have a mixture of modern and archaic features that contrasts with earlier modern humans in east Africa and southwest Asia, indicating some degree of human population continuity in Asia with the emergence of modern humans. The Zhirendong humans indicate that the spread of modern human biology long preceded the cultural and technological innovations of the Upper Paleolithic and that early modern humans co-existed for many tens of millennia with late archaic humans further north and west across Eurasia.

11,000 yr old Star Chart in Egypt

11,000 yr old star chart more accurate than NASA



Published on Dec 25, 2012
The star chart at Nabta Playa is composed of a few stones in the sand and it calculates the position of the star system Orion over the 24,000 year procession and calculates the distance to each star in light years. It is accurate on the stars we know the distances to, but have to assume its correct on the stars that NASA currently does not know the exact distance to. These stones were placed in the desert roughly 7,000 years before the Egyptians built the Pyramids. The purpose of the structure was recently discovered by Thomas G. Brophy.

First Dynasty Egyptian Text Spelling for Atlantis

I found this while doing a photosearch for something different. This is a transliteration for a place name listed in a first-dynasty (3000 BC) Egyptian hieroglyphic inscription and it seems to correspond to Atlantis. It is not the familiar letter order, it is a little jumbled from what we are used to. Nonetheless this does seem another clear sign that the Atlantis legend is from the beginning of Egyptian history and did not originate in some subsequent event such as the Late Bronze Age eruption of the Thera volcano or the Trojan War.

Atlantis from first dynasty Egypt
[As I understand it, the initial H can be dropped or added by different dialects, as it is in London Cockney. And the Ancient Egyptian did not distinguish between l and r. Best Wishes, Dale D.]

Bosnian Pyramids

From Global Warming and Terraforming Terra site:



Word seems to be that the Bosnian pyramids are definitely of Ice Age date and manmade: they are earlier than 10000 BC, as shown by the age of the soil covering them. There are some pyramids of Latin America that are said to be that old, but the dates are hotly disputed. I think these are genuinely the original wave of pyramid builders out of the Atlantis Empire and associated with the oldest mine operations in Europe, the Mid-East, and in Latin America. And they all seem to be teocallis.-DD



Bosnian Pyramids
Posted: 12 Mar 2013 08:56 PM PDT

It is high time to start taking these structures in Bosnia seriously whatever we may think of the interpretation. Importantly, it is claimed that this is a working pyramid. That is very important.

Even better we have a high quality cement we want to replicate.

As I have been extensively posting, we are steadily unearthing and recovering the shape of the Atlantean world from 3000 BC to 1159 BC and the Bronze ingot currency that drove it. All the core Atlantean centers mustered the man power able to build large pyramids. We are now finding them.

I also see no Atlantean evidence to support earlier chronology. However, this pyramid has been continuously radiating and I do suspect that this will strongly age carbon isotopes and I should mention that the aging limit for carbon is generally 12,000 years and should be labeled alternatively as greater than.

As readers of my blog likely understand, there certainly existed a pre - Pleistocene Nonconformity human world that we can rightly name as Antediluvian. To some degree, it is plausible that a pyramid power source technology existed and was simply abandoned before the crust was shifted. The great pyramid could be part of that while the Atlantean age was correctly one of imitation. [of the previous age]

The high quality concrete is the best argument for an antediluvian chronology and must be taken seriously.

Way more important, this pyramid is intact.



Significance of the Bosnian Pyramid Discovery

by Semir “Dr. Sam”Osmanagich

Foreign member of the Russian Academy of Natural Sciences


It was in April 2005 that I first traveled to the town of Visoko, 20 miles northwest of Sarajevo, the capital of Bosnia-Herzegovina. Two pyramid shaped hills caught my attention at that time, and I later named them the Bosnian Pyramids of the Sun and Moon. For thousands of years locals had considered those pyramidal shapes just natural hills though they did have the shape of a pyramid because they were covered by soil and vegetation. When I first saw their triangular faces, obvious corners and their orientation toward the cardinal points, I knew that they had to be constructed by a force other than nature. I have investigated pyramids for decades throughout the world including China, Mexico, Guatemala and El Salvador and they had the same type of soil and vegetation coverage, I knew they had to be pyramid structures.


In 2005 work was started unearthing these pyramids and various construction companies and geologists were hired to do core drilling and geo-morphological analysis. Then I announced to the world, in a press conference, that the first pyramids in Europe had been discovered.


Shortly thereafter I established the non-profit, Archaeological Park: Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun Foundation, and the investigations in Bosnia have proven this complex holds the world’s largest inter-disciplinary archaeological project. We spent over 340.000 hours in archaeological excavation, sample testing and radiocarbon dating from 2005 until January of 2011. Discoveries have determined that the Bosnian Pyramid Valley consists five pyramids discovered to date which I have named: The Bosnian Pyramids of the Sun, Moon, Dragon, Mother Earth and Love. The site also includes a tumulus complex and a huge underground labyrinth that stretches for more than 10 miles underneath the pyramidal complex.



This discovery is changing history because of several things:

  • These are the first pyramids discovered in Europe
  • The site includes the biggest pyramidal structure in the world—The Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun (over 220 meters high) is 30% larger than the Great Pyramid of Egypt on the Giza Plateau (147 meters)
  • The Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun has the most precise north-south cosmic orientation of any pyramid on earth so far discovered
  • The Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun is completely covered by rectangular concrete blocks. Properties of the concrete, such as extreme hardness and low water absorption, are, according to the scientific institutions in Bosnia, Italy and France, far superior to any modern concrete materials
  • The pyramids are covered by soil (according to the state Institute for Agro-pedology) which is over 12,000 years old. This finding confirms the Bosnian pyramids are the oldest pyramids on the planet
  • Below the Bosnian Valley of the Pyramids is an extensive underground tunnel and chamber network which runs for more than ten miles
  • Ceramic sculptures have been discovered in the underground labyrinth with a mass of up to 20.000 pounds which makes them the largest so far found from the ancient world
This list of Bosnian archaeology finds does not end here. In the vicinity, we discovered the tallest tumulus in the World which is 61 meters high. Up until now the highest tumulus known was in Sillbury Hill in England and measure 60 meters high. The Bosnian tumulus consists of two-layers of megalithic terraces, clay layers and artificial concrete layers.


In 2010, a team of physicists who were brought onto the project located detected an energy beam coming through the top of the Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun. The radius of the beam is 4.5 meters with a frequency of 28 kHz. The beam is continuous and its strength grows as it moves up and away from the top of the pyramid. This phenomenon contradicts all known physical laws known to man today. This is the first proof of non-herzian technology on the Planet. It seems the original pyramid-builders in what is now Bosnian created a perpetual “energy machine” that is still working today.


In the underground labyrinth we discovered three chambers in 2010 and a small blue lake. Energy screening shows that the ionization level is 43 times higher than the average concentration outside which makes the underground chambers healing rooms.


Further electromagnetic detection in 2011 confirmed that levels of negative radiation through the Hartman, Curry and Schneider grids are equal to zero in the tunnels. There was no technical radiation (from power lines and/or technology) found in the tunnels and no cosmic radioactivity.


The large ceramic sculptures are positioned over the underground water flows resulting in the negative energy being transformed to into positive energy. All of these experiments point to the underground labyrinth as one of the most secure underground constructions in the world making it ideal for body rejuvenation and regeneration.


Two hundred years of Egyptology has not produced a satisfactory answer to the question of what the real purpose was for building the pyramids. But with only six years of research on the Bosnian pyramids we have applied inter-disciplinary scientific research looking at this complex from not only the physical, but the energetic and spiritual dimensions as well which has produced some astounding information. And, we have pioneered results which affects the science of pyramids which until now has largely been ignored in Egypt. This archaeological project is changing the world as we know it with each new discovery.


Perhaps by exploring new ways of looking at things we can learn from our ancient past by changing our present and make our future better.

    [Note: Robert Klein uses "Atlantean" in the sense of "Atlantic Bronze Age" and it is probably true the people themselves called themselves Atlanteans and identified their lineage as coming from the earlier Atlantis. For the most part the term "Atlantean" in this sense applies to the Megalithic culture of Europe - DD]
