More Ark of the Covenant

Written by Robert Bruce Baird

"But there are other difficulties withrepparttar Ark ofrepparttar 141090 Covenant that have to do withrepparttar 141091 possibility that it could have been part ofrepparttar 141092 treasure of Rome brought by Visigoths to Rennes-le-Château. According torepparttar 141093 Old Testament, Exodus,repparttar 141094 Ark ofrepparttar 141095 Covenant was constructed soon afterrepparttar 141096 Israelites had escaped acrossrepparttar 141097 Red Sea from bondage in Egypt.

Modern engineers have been intrigued byrepparttar 141098 specification ofrepparttar 141099 Ark because, ifrepparttar 141100 directions are followed precisely, one ends up making a fairly powerful electrical condenser. It was a box of very specific dimensions made of acacia wood (an insulator). It was covered, inside and out, with gold (an excellent conductor). Ifrepparttar 141101 two surfaces ofrepparttar 141102 gold were separated from each other, then a very powerful condenser of electricity isrepparttar 141103 result. Inrepparttar 141104 dry air ofrepparttar 141105 Middle East, it would accumulate a very powerful charge. (15)

Butrepparttar 141106 Ark was more than just a condenser, it was a 'spark transmitter' roughly tuned to a specific frequency byrepparttar 141107 very precise dimensions given to Moses forrepparttar 141108 basic acacia-wood box. In this matter,repparttar 141109 Ark was similar to early 'cavity tubes' in 1930s radar research whererepparttar 141110 desired radar frequency was obtained by actually machining cavities of various volumes into metal blocks. {So we can see how electricity aidedrepparttar 141111 gold merchants who were plating silver or lead from archaeology, perhaps. We know there are other galvanic and electrical sources for such power as well.} The Ark was a 'cavity' of precise dimensions, and one in a gold-sheathed box.

The Ark also had a top, ofrepparttar 141112 same general construction asrepparttar 141113 basic box. This lid ofrepparttar 141114 box had golden 'cherubim' at each end {Imagine if they were able to induce separate polar charges inrepparttar 141115 'high- spin' atomic state perrepparttar 141116 writings of Gardner from 'science'; into each of these 'cherubim'.} and a 'Mercy Seat.' {Mercy might then be like 'devoted ones' or a form of capital punishment to be used in conjunction with energizingrepparttar 141117 soul be ritual intorepparttar 141118 tubes we hear were receptacles for souls and which may tie in withrepparttar 141119 jade tubes onrepparttar 141120 head ofrepparttar 141121 Prince of Palenque fromrepparttar 141122 'science' segment.} The Bible doesn't tell" us exactly how these components were arranged, or how they were attached torepparttar 141123 Ark's top. It is well to remember that although Moses is supposed to berepparttar 141124 author of Exodus, according to Hebrew tradition,repparttar 141125 earliest known written account dates from almost one thousand years later {And there is uncertainty about who Moses was and when he was around as we have shown. But, his sister was one ofrepparttar 141126 most adept alchemists, I think.}. Moses might not have described everything aboutrepparttar 141127 Ark inrepparttar 141128 first place, but even if he had, it seems probable that some details would have become fuzzy inrepparttar 141129 one thousand years of oral transmission beforerepparttar 141130 story was written down.

Without assuming any 'secret' or 'unknown' components at all, but working only withrepparttar 141131 Ark as described, only two assumptions are necessary in order to construct a fairly powerful spark transmitter. One assumption is that an ancient, pliable insulating material was available so thatrepparttar 141132 parts ofrepparttar 141133 Ark could be attached in ways that both insulated them from, and conducted them to,repparttar 141134 basic box condenser-cavity-frequency- modulator in order to produce a 'circuit'. Such an insulating material was widely available torepparttar 141135 ancient Israelites and Egyptians--bitumen, tar. {For example Sodom and Gomorrah and what is now Iraq is populated with tar pits. Pitch fires of a continual nature existed in places likerepparttar 141136 La Brea Tar Pits for eons and would have provided early man with fire, too.} And we don't need to assume that artisans and priests inrepparttar 141137 ancient Middle East used bitumen to insulate and to seal simple electrical devices.

Wet-cell electric batteries, using acidic citrus juice as an electrolyte, were discovered in a Baghdad museum. (16) They were sealed with bitumen, andrepparttar 141138 internal electrodes were insulated from each other with bitumen. These primitive batteries have been dated to about A.D. 700. But fundamental electric devices were used much earlier than that. Tiny golden beads from XVIII Dynasty Egypt (c.1550 B.C.) were found to have only a thin coating of gold over some base metal {We showed Ashkelon had a calf of Ba'al with silver plating from Phoenicians andrepparttar 141139 National Geographic in 'science'. The Phocaeans had mass produced electrum plated coinage first according to Michael Grant, etc., etc.}. The beads are so small, and also without any sort of seam or hammered edge torepparttar 141140 gold layer, thatrepparttar 141141 gold could have been applied only by electroplating. (17) Given a citrus-juice battery like those of Baghdad {Where a printed circuit in a museum was thought to be embroidery by archaeologists until a computer expert saw it.}, electroplating of gold would not have been difficult. So we don't have to assume an electrical insulating material, and we don't have to assume basic knowledge of electricity in Middle Eastern antiquity. We know it.

The second assumption is that there were instructions, or a model, indicating what was to be insulated with bitumen, and what was to be solidly attached withrepparttar 141142 ubiquitous gold. {They had superconductive knowledge according to Gardner and calcium is useful in these regards.}

Let us consider one 'cherub' at one end ofrepparttar 141143 Ark. These 'cherubim' seem to have beenrepparttar 141144 Egyptian idea of a 'griffon'--an animal with claws and long pointed wings {Important inrepparttar 141145 gargoyle genre of gothic architecture and alchemy.}, a sort of cross between a lion and a hawk. Let us suppose that our cherub at one end ofrepparttar 141146 box had one gold claw connected torepparttar 141147 inner sheet of gold onrepparttar 141148 acacia-wood box, andrepparttar 141149 other claw attached torepparttar 141150 gold sheath onrepparttar 141151 exterior ofrepparttar 141152 acacia box. Further, suppose that this separation was maintained up torepparttar 141153 long wings, which were of gold. Suppose thatrepparttar 141154 wings were hinged or pivoted to be able to 'flap' like a proper cherub. Maybe they were just mounted in a glob of bitumen with bars, wires, or much more flexible leather-sheathed chain-links {Or ultra strong human hair.} of gold maintainingrepparttar 141155 required connections.

Assembled like this, there would be a very formidable spark betweenrepparttar 141156 cherub's pointed gold wings each time they were pushed close together. The Ark would arc--because ofrepparttar 141157 electric charge that had accumulated inrepparttar 141158 condenser. And it would arc according to a rough frequency dictated byrepparttar 141159 dimensions ofrepparttar 141160 Ark's basic cavity. Touchingrepparttar 141161 wings at once with bare hands would have resulted in instant death or burn depending onrepparttar 141162 strength ofrepparttar 141163 charge that had been accumulated. Operatingrepparttar 141164 Ark, or even touching it, would have been a potentially fatal business for anyone not thoroughly initiated into necessary procedures. The Bible mentions at least one instance in which a non-priest fell dead trying to saverepparttar 141165 Ark--the man grabbed it when it was in danger of falling off a wagon. This was inrepparttar 141166 early days of Israelite struggles in Canaan.

The Beothuk

Written by Robert Bruce Baird

Canada is an emancipated country inrepparttar relative scheme of things. But it has a dark history that some people aren't aware of, and others would like to keep it that way. Inrepparttar 140864 early 20th centuryrepparttar 140865 last Beothuk Indian met her death after various parties encouraged other Indians (Micmac) to hunt people to their extinction. It is true thatrepparttar 140866 Beothuk stole merchandise but it is also true that their culture assumed that what wasn't being used was forrepparttar 140867 common people to use and that those who weren't usingrepparttar 140868 canoe or boat wouldn't mind if it was borrowed. In time they returnedrepparttar 140869 goods if they were given a chance.

The debate in scholarly journals would suggest this was part ofrepparttar 140870 difficulty and that there is little proof there was a concerted effort to eradicaterepparttar 140871 Beothuk. What truth in that suspicion of mine actually exists is up to you to decide. Clearly there will be no conclusive documentation I can provide; but there might be a reason to eliminate these people who are probablyrepparttar 140872 cause ofrepparttar 140873 moniker 'red-men'. They would smear their body withrepparttar 140874 spiritual red ochre that had been part of their cosmogony sincerepparttar 140875 time ofrepparttar 140876 ancient copper trade to Isle Royale. This was a protection from evil spirits. Obviously it didn't work in this world whenrepparttar 140877 European heathen arrived to dispossess all natives and their quaint attitudes that had built up over thousands of years. The ‘protection’ was inadequate to protect what may have beenrepparttar 140878 remnants ofrepparttar 140879 Keltic 'Brotherhood' that first inter-mingled in North America. Their canoe or boat construction is unlike any other and Farley Mowat certainly thinks they were in touch withrepparttar 140880 Scots and Celts sincerepparttar 140881 8th century AD. There is a burial that archaeologists have found that interests me and I hope some day they do genetic testing onrepparttar 140882 body to see if they can track or tracerepparttar 140883 genetic material to Ireland or Norway. This body had been disinterred or taken out of its grave and thenrepparttar 140884 bones were covered with red ochre. I believe this was a high priest or shaman who hadrepparttar 140885 knowledge of his ancestors from Druidic Europe. The crouched position ofrepparttar 140886 skeleton is reminiscent of some Scythian and Keltic burials as well as those near Mt. Carmel Neanderthal back to 150,000 years ago.
