The Old Testament was created in the 15th Century

This one is really a no-brainer. When Pliny the Elder dies during the Pompeii event, things do shine in a different light.

In the case of the Old Testament we simply need to follow the technology. What technological achievements do we have in there? These two:
  • The Noah's Ark
  • The Tower of Babel
The Old Testament
The Old Testament is the original Hebrew Bible, the sacred scriptures of the Jewish faith, written at different times between about 1200 and 165 BC. The New Testament books were written by Christians in the first century AD.

The Oldest Bible Source: The Reality
What is the oldest source of the Bible? The answer is - The Codex Vaticanus. We have been through this before. The narrative can date (good luck verifying) documents to whatever time it wants, while the reality remains... we are stuck on this mysterious 15th century. Some unknown individuals were maintaining things to be discovered some time after 1400.
  • Dated: 4th Century AD
  • Located: 15th Century AD
  • Form Here
The Noah's Ark
Somebody with the sufficient knowledge of shipbuilding put the following multi-deck vessel instructions on paper:
  • So make yourself an ark of cypress wood; make rooms in it and coat it with pitch inside and out.
  • This is how you are to build it: The ark is to be three hundred cubits long, fifty cubits wide and thirty cubits high.
  • Make a roof for it, leaving below the roof an opening one cubit high all around. Put a door in the side of the ark and make lower, middle and upper decks.
The end result ends up looking something like this
ark-layout.jpg


And our contemporary re-creation...
ark_wide_1.jpg

KD: Some 3,000 years ago the instructions for this monstrosity were written down. Allegedly the God himself provided the instructions. This is often the reason the knowledge is being explained. Kind of... God knows everything. Somehow, in this case his knowledge was limited with the 15th century ship structure. The God did not mention any GPS's and gave no instructions for a Steam Engine.

When did people start building ships based on these instructions? The answer would be - 15th century. In other words at least 2,500 years after this alleged tech was out.
  • The only conclusion I can make would be two-fold:​
    • People were idiots for 2,500 years, had the instructions, but only started building similar stuff in 1400's.
    • People were not idiots, and whoever included the instructions in the Old Testament used the known shipbuilding technique.
The Tower of Babel
The same applies for the one of the most legendary buildings in the World. What instructions were provided for the building guilty of this world's peoples speaking different languages.
  • And they said one to another, Go to, let us make brick, and burn them thoroughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for mortar
  • And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower
tower-of-babel-the-tower.jpg

Why I think the fired brick technology belongs to approximately 15th century you can see here:

KD: This is just a hypothesis I'm working on. Not expecting people to agree, but debating issues like this could probably propel us forward. I do think that whoever wrote the text knew the above technology, and that technology have only become available at a certain time.

Based on what you've read on this site, you could play with dates pertaining to the New Testament.

Also consider the following:
  • Why do we think that the Old Testament has anything to do with the Old Testament. As in, why do we not see that they are not really related to each other, and do not belong in the same book.​

They don't really relate so well to one another.
Plus "Jehovah" throws fits like a lot of the pantheon members, be they Greek, Roman, Hindu...
I concur with the Gnostic and other views, some I read earlier. The "God" of the Old Testament is a false god. Demiurge. CRAZY. PSYCHO.
It's such a broken hodge podge of irrelevancies. Fill in the blanks.
You forgot the Arc of the Covenant.
Or the chariots of Ezekiel. Could've been energy systems as well. Mer Ka Ba.
But, yes, they seem to be completely exclusive, except the players and locale. But those names could be changed to fit the greater agenda.
Talk about pulling some prayer rugs out from beneath the multitudes! It's a good thing we don't need books or priests to tell us what's right.

I do not think there is a false God. Rather different entities we call God or gods grew their own “crops” ... meaning people slaves.
I totally agree, and think that the variety of these entities was vast. In addition to the various physical hybrids/Giants/mutations/"extra"terrestrials, I think some of these entities are likely non-physical as well. Hell, the Creator themself might be involved too at times. As usual, very hard to parse.

I bring this up mostly because I think there's a tendency in this sort of research to pick your favorite non-human entity and start blaming/crediting them for everything. I wish anything was that simple.

As for the Old Testament, if you don't have any confidence in dating methods, then the 15th century seems to be where history was born. If the OT was actually entirely conceived then, to me, the chances of the text being a genuine historical account decreases. Though, I suspect that sections are in fact borrowed from actual events and, like the chronology in general, things that are separated by centuries in the text, may have been concurrently occuring. Like Jesus's ministry, if he was one individual, which I waver on.

Many scientists believe that complex molecules like amino acids and maybe even DNA arrived on comets or meteors or some other kind of space junk. Of course they never will say "space drone". So if the foundation of life (DNA) on Earth could have arrived in an interstellar lipstick tube why not the "original" Bible too? All this intertwined bullshit history text we discuss on this site is probably only around 1 gigabyte and could fit on the outside of a microprinted bacterium. What's the possibility the "blueprints" for all of mankind's "ancient" (pre 1500) textual achievements were just seeded around the world like so much fertilizer - by the merchant's guild union #433? We are still too dumb to be able to create life from scratch so where is the proof we were ever smart enough to create our great "ancient" literary works from scratch? We are certainly clever enough to make derivative variations on just about anything but perhaps we were never capable of conceiving something as complex as the Bible. Just as an alien civilization might want to seed planets with genetic material for entertainment value maybe seeding with some kind of mythology kit is routine not too long after Gaia breaks first wind.

Yes, like Jupiter Ascending. Which was cheesy but well done. Eddie is the reprehensible opposite of his Newt Scamander...
I've wondered if any of the old guilds have their own histories. Probably all been infiltrated.
I'm also thinking since they edited and twisted that book to serve their own ends, that the Christ probably had a better turnout and response, if he existed. Would've taught and trained others how to work "wonders" and "miracles". One man can't do it alone.
But NO, it's JUST that guy. And look, here's his dead and bleeding corpse to remind you not to try anything funny or question our authoritay.
Here's the SICKEST part. The Catholics believe Jesus WAS God come down to earth, so... They killed God!
👏
I think there's clues in the missing parts they couldn't quite make up for lack of cohesion. Traveled the world, spoke to other masters and spiritual leaders, learned other techniques (probably some yoga). Would NOT have chosen one religion over others.
The first hippy. Ha.
Man, we GOTTA do something about those creepy fish heads in the Vatican...
All of those pantheon and the Sumerian epic make a lot more sense regarding how the "gods" we're behaving.

I tend to think less an "alien seed" and more a star seed. Even if one accepts that stars are distant suns, our actual tangible understanding of what a sun is is limited. The sun transmits a variety of electromagnetic waves and undoubtedly makes life on Earth possible.

I just got a sudden urge to go worship for some reason.

KD I'd like to interject here. We understand that TPTB have burned countless libraries and in ancient times most books were scribed (at least this is the common narrative).

If the written truth were scribed and ancient manuscripts kept hidden, could an all powerful civilization compel people to reveal the locations of ancient knowledge which threatened their power? I believe they could and did destroy countless works because TPTB continue to do so today. I posit this question: Could a worldwide civilization bent on control and subjugation of the masses seek and destroy nearly all traces of original manuscripts that testify to a relationship between God and man, leaving only copies AND with unlimited wealth create religions and distribute religious materials which hide the true nature of our relationship with God and instead exalt certain groups above others so that as in "animal Farm" some pigs are more equal than the other farm animals?

What is numerically and mathematically seemingly impossible over the centuries is how little substantive derivation there is in the Old Testament.

With people's inclination to deceive, manipulate and predate on one another, what could keep such texts in tact for so long?

Does anyone here have substantive citations which refute the idea that the old testament is only a creation of the 14th century?

This is a great area of study because it goes to the root of humanity, this is meat and potatoes stuff.

I started thinking of the merchant guilds as having something to hide when I read that the mid 1300's bubonic plague seems to have been moving way too slow between urban areas. To the investigators this suggested that the movement/travel between towns and cities was much lower than historians have been telling us. Perhaps certain merchant guilds were the vectors. It also raises the question why townsfolk were not traveling much town to town.

The Electric Universe specialists think suns are plasma - 4th state of matter - through and through. Nobody is thinking of how plasma can store information which is a requirement for stars to have smarts. Perhaps its more likely that God lives inside Suns. "The Suns of God" - too bad I don't have the patience to write a science fiction novel.

The Old Testament also has a description that quite clearly is of a stargate or portal of some sort. I used my template on the descriptions the Harma-Gheddon area, and they tell of some type of transportation done through an archway opening, and that it was located on that site. So that makes three sources of power.
And, in the Old Testament, read the part where it tells (I believe its in Leviticus) of two of the Rabbi who attended the Ark being burned right down to their shoes, for using a new incense at the alter. YHWY did not like that one bit. And if you translate it using a template you will find that the new incense that they employed was from a combination of minerals that gave off a sparkly light - BUT it also emitted ultraviolet radiation - which was the part that got them killed. Why would YHWY, or any other aliens of that group, not like us to employ ultraviolet? And what is the connection between the balls of yellow stone material wrapped over clay that were discovered in the hundreds underneath the Mexican sky-gods temple? Because when that material is heated, it also displays things that would normally be hidden to humans due to it being in ultraviolet - in other words, they made the yellow balls of the same material that we use today to make our motion detectors. Does anyone seriously believe that the Aztec were able to figure out how to make a complicated mineral ball material out of a substance that displayed ultraviolet energy, by pure accident? Did they just sit around and say - hey, how about we make up a ghost detector today? Wouldn't it pay for us to find out if this ultraviolet radiation might be used as a form of weapon in the event that aliens do land one day?

Recently discovered (last 15 years) was scotch tape gives off X-Rays when pulled. Sticky Tape Gives Off X-Rays


Maybe the UV light described above was high energy X-Rays killing instantly or some kind of two week lingering death? In other words if X-Rays can be made from Scotch Tape to allow imaging a thumb then maybe the ancients ones could slap together some king of bituminous mixture of black tar and mussel spit together to drive a killer ray gun??

Speaking of linguistic templates - does Frankincense (incense) appear in any translations you have done? Why does your template suggest UV light and not X-Rays?

When will the EPA get around to banning Scotch Tape? I just put in an order for a truckload from Amazon.

Not sure as to why it suggest UV, but perhaps it's something connected with the frequency.
If you give me a chapter and verse in the Old Test. I can give you an answer on Frankincense.

Exodus 30 has the first mention of frankincense. What Onycha is, is a mystery.


34
And the LORD said unto Moses, Take unto thee sweet spices, stacte, and onycha, and galbanum; these sweet spices with pure frankincense: of each shall there be a like weight:
35
And thou shalt make it a perfume, a confection after the art of the apothecary, tempered together, pure and holy:
36
And thou shalt beat some of it very small, and put of it before the testimony in the tabernacle of the congregation, where I will meet with thee: it shall be unto you most holy.
37
And as for the perfume which thou shalt make, ye shall not make to yourselves according to the composition thereof: it shall be unto thee holy for the LORD.
38
Whosoever shall make like unto that, to smell thereto, shall even be cut off from his people.

Exodus 30 has the first mention of frankincense. What Onycha is, is a mystery.
Well, we seem to have a winner. Both Onycha and Frankincense translate with my template to
two themes that are completely different than what they seem to be on the surface. The strangest
is Onycha. Basically it only appears one time in the entire Bible, and the scholars actually have
no idea as to what it was supposed to indicate. My translation seems to tell us that they were using
that word to hide a warning relating to another subject entirely.
Onycha is three phrase parts in Sumerian:

whirling throne platform for a deity
to be distant in time, to be quick + the vault of heaven, the sky
line, edge, writing board, side board of a chariot
So I would translate this as:
A flat, whirling platform that moves quickly through the heavens.
Yes, I know it's strange, but that's what I will stick to as my translation.

Frankincense is also strange:

to hang, suspend, to carry"
earth, land, underworld, down below
to burn, to be sour
a type of bird or strength, force

Which I would translate as :
to carry down below (to the earth) + to burn with force or to fly with strength

I have done over 600 of these type translations. Many times it provides an answer which
astounds us, since it provides the answer to many questions that we have not yet been able
to answer. Sometimes it gives a completely unexpected meaning, but that's what they
wanted us to know when they chose those words for that particular verse. I have also
seen the name "Enki" over 108 times in my translations, and it appears actually zero times
in the normal Hebrew. Hope this opens up some ideas for you, Jim

PS - as an idea, one of my translations said, quite clearly, that Cain was a female. Which explains
why, although this person was credited with building a great many cities, there seem to be none
named after her or her sons and the lineage doesn't quite match with another lineage given in
the same Old Testament - they were super chauvinistic.

Ark doesn't mean boat or ship in the original Hebrew, it's more akin to a box or container or chest. See: ark of the covenant. The two words used in the original Hebrew in the story of Noah and the story in Exodus about the container that holds the 2 tablets of the 10 commandments are h8392 which is a box
and h717 which is also a box. They can both translate to chest and the latter can also translate to coffin. But in no way shape or form does an ark represent a boat. The Hebrew words for boat and ship don't match the words for ark. Also when the waters dry up Noah removes the covering or boarding of the ark because God boxed(like nails,or nailed) Noah into it. Like a big giant crate.

If I lived 500 or 5000 years ago and I saw mud get hard in the sun... Well...I might just build myself a dwelling out of it.. And I might just add more sun to it in the form of fire to make it harder.. But then again we could all probably figure this out at the advent of basic pottery.

The Bible doesn't mention guns or cannons or seige warfare.. Putting it before the middle age.

The story of Babel is metaphorical... It was just a popular story to explain why there was so many different languages...

Using this rationality Aircraft Carriers, Ocean Liners, Coastguard Cutters are not ships either.

We all choose what evidence to consider and what to ignore. The only evidence for the antiquity of the Genesis is the so-called "common knowledge." All the physical evidence originated after 1400 AD.

For myself the fired brick narrative is very telling, and in itself is sufficient for the purposes of this thread.

We can plausibly speculate with "if" this, or "if" that. The reality is, it is much easier to make bricks for building structures, vs. quarrying, transporting and chiseling rocks. And the PTB supported narrative tells us the following:
  • Fired bricks were widely used in ancient Rome, both Republic and Empire.
roman empire.gif

  • The practice stopped with the fall of the Roman Empire in the 5th century AD. But...
    • When the Roman Empire fell, the art of brickmaking nearly vanished and it continued only in Italy and the Bizantine Empire.
    • In the 11th century, brickmaking spread from the Italian peninsula to France
    • During the 12th century bricks were reintroduced to northern Germany from northern Italy
    • In the 15th century brick making reached Russia
Logical conclusions:
  • All of the former Empire areas were supposed to know how to produce bricks. They used fired bricks for hundreds of years prior to the Empire's fall due to being a part of the same very Empire. We could add Northern Africato the bunch, but it is not really important.
    • For those who "forgot", they were supposed to have the Old Testament with the instructions.
  • France, Germany, Spain, England and Co, "forgot" how to make bricks, while Italy still remembered.
    • France, Germany, Spain, England, etc., reverted to quarrying, transporting and chiseling rocks, while Italy highhandedly used the benefits of the brick-making.
  • Christianity (allegedly) was introduced to the future Russian territories in the 9th century. Even if they lived in the vacuum, they could have used the fired brick producing instructions described in the Genesis.
    • Yet, future Russians used stones up until the 15th century, and only then figured out the benefits of the bricks.
  • And finally, none of the former Roman territories were supposed to forget how to make the fired bricks. It's simply not possible. Why?
    • 1. Because I think it is simply impossible, when you have brick buildings all over
    • 2. Because here were trade relationships, wars and what not involving these same territories. Hence, constant re-introduction into the art of brickmaking. I have no comment if the historians want us to believe that neighboring Germany and France did not see that Italy was using fired bricks.
    • 3. And finally, because there was supposed to be the Old Testament in everyone's possession describing this wonderful technology.
      • And they said one to another, Go to, let us make brick, and burn them thoroughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for mortar.
kd_separator.jpg

Above are the facts provided by the narrative. In my opinion these historical facts are the insult for our intelligence. The totality of circumstances (historical texts, oldest bible copy, geographical discoveries) points at the 15th century.

The fired brickmaking technology, in my opinion, did not exist prior to early 1400s. Once developed, this technology did what all the other technologies do. It spread around like fire.

In other words, the only time these fired bricks could find their way into the Bible was after the technology was developed. More on this here:
The Bible doesn't mention guns or cannons or seige warfare.. Putting it before the middle age.
I assume the narrative still supports that Julius Caesar lived in the BC times.

Caesar conquering the town Alesia in Gaul - (Melchior Feselen, 1533)
I think these will do for the cannons. September 52 BC.
caesar_cannons.jpg

The Entire Image
May be this is why the Shakespeare's "dogs of war" are the same "dogs of war" presented by Victor Hugo. Where both are cannons.
  • Shakespeare:
    • In the scene, Mark Antony is alone with Julius Caesar's body, shortly after Caesar's assassination. In a soliloquy, he reveals his intention to incite the crowd at Caesar's funeral to rise up against the assassins. Foreseeing violence throughout Italy, Antony even imagines Caesar's spirit joining in the exhortations: "ranging for revenge, with Ate by his side come hot from hell, shall in these confines with a Monarch's voice cry 'Havoc!' and let slip the dogs of war."
  • Hugo:
    • Another cannonade was audible at some distance. At the same time that the two guns were furiously attacking the redoubt from the Rue de la Chanvrerie, two other cannons, trained one from the Rue Saint-Denis, the other from the Rue Aubry-le-Boucher, were riddling the Saint-Merry barricade. The four cannons echoed each other mournfully. The barking of these sombre dogs of war replied to each other.
kd_separator.jpg

At the same time I understand that with enough plausible "ifs" we can justify just about every lie pushed onto us by the PTB.

I am writing a Tween series on things I've found on Youtube, and now this site has become my go-to for new ideas. Feel free to express any ideas about our Sun being the 4th stage of matter, and how it is is sending out messages to life on how to grow. Why else would the PTB be blocking the Sun with chemtrails. Why else would religion try to claim the 'Son/Sun'? They seem to want to take over Sun worship to control the narrative of what it really does.

Those are ships. The power supply has changed from sails to fuel and electricity.
An ark is not a ship. Noah didn't need a boat he just needed to wait out the storm.. He wasn't sailing anywhere there was nowhere to sail to...

Caesar conquering the town Alesia in Gaul - (Melchior Feselen, 1533)
I think these will do for the cannons.

I can paint a car with Attila the Hun driving it. That doesn't mean the Huns had automobiles. The painting was 1533...

Ceasar is a title. Aka...
Augustus Caesar
Julius Caesar
Flavius Caesar...

Just because I can make cake doesn't mean I have to, maybe I want to make brownies.
In other words if I want to build Hadrians Wall with stone than screw bricks.
If I'm a noble that owns a quarry I'm not going to allow someone to make bricks the preferred building method.

Wiki says what it wants to say.
What is the tensile strength of fired brick?
Can it hold up to stone as a fortification and possible object of sieges? Will less mortar of stone be stronger than the amount of mortar used with brick, if any mortar is used at all? Can I securely attach a multi ton ceiling to fired brick and will it hold?
How many stories can I build with brick as opposed to stone?
If I'm surrounded by forest I am most likely going to build with wood.

Why does it seem implausible to reuse brick to build an abbey? I used older brick to construct a retaining wall in the backyard when I was alot younger... I just chipped away the old mortar.

Once again, to clarify, I believe fired brick to just be one step away from fire kilns involving clay pottery.

Denver and Albuquerque both know how to use brick and how to make brick . But because of geography and resources we see more wood houses in Denver and more Adobe type structures in Albuquerque.

The oldest source of the Bible is Mankind itself . Writing something down doesn't mean that's the beginning of it's knowledge or information.
