The Annunaki Vogue in Pop Culture Is Not Accidental, Nor Is It Incidental

Is Annunaki Global [Faux] Disclosure Taking Place Right Under Our Noses In Popular New British TV Advertisements?

I am always watching what appears on TV and other media for signs of trending imagery and themes that bear an Illuminati influence. In 2011 I have noted several new themes, among them a new alien / Annunaki style of TV media message. There is a specific “double entendre” [ dual meaning ]  inferred in the first TV advert below, with imagery and subliminal suggestions that are quite vivid. Listen and watch very carefully, then tell me – what do you think the REAL message is in this advert?  It actually has nothing whatsoever to do with the internet. It has very much to do with acclimating the human species to “other” kinds of creatures, far advanced extra-terrestrial creatures who intend to assume some kind of  genetic “Lordship,” or more accurately an “over-lordship” of our species in the near future. Humanity must be warned about underlying motives, reasons, purposes, and intents. That is the reason for this essay.

Is the Alien / Annunaki  “Disclosure” plot actually tied to the rise of the final Son of Perdition?

I have secretly wondered about this question for years. What better or more perfect way to intimidate an entire world population into hushed and reverent submission than to present genetically superior alien beings to them, who claim to be their deep far distant actual “true genetic creator fathers” – the original olden parent species, the source from where the ruling hybrids descended?

Modern people in the 21st century refer to these Annunaki /human hybrids which were descended from the prehistoric biblical fallen Nephilim as the “elites.”  But there is nothing heavenly or holy about these elite dynastic families, trust me. They plague modern humankind like a parasite. They plan our enslavement, they plot our financial demise. They own the currencies that are loaned to the nations. They bring nations to ruin. They live for profit and have no real law but their own greed and avarice. They are not of God. They are the chaff which will be soon separated from God’s good wheat by the angels of the harvest at the end of days.

Humanity has been robbed by these elites, down through the ages, of many urgent and vital facts about our real biological and genetic origins. The “Annunaki story” is being aggressively sold and promoted to mortal men these days as the solution to our current racial and species wide identity crisis. We have been left with a heavily edited and redacted Christian Bible which all good bible scholars well know has many books missing.

The Book of Genesis speaks of “the Anakim” – the word “Anakim” and the word “Annunaki” are very similar. That fact has always struck me as odd and significant.

We are presented with a mere three years from the treasured life of Christ and yet we are expected to accept this document, the Christian Holy Bible,  as the definitive and final “Word of God.”  Any Christian who questions anything written in the Bible is still considered a heretic and a sinner. I both read all that I can get my hands on, and I question everything I read, so that must make me an absolute spiritual untouchable. Yet God knows my heart. I want to know the truth. And there are untold millions and millions of others like me, who are tired of living the pretense of a life, with no knowledge why or for what purpose. We were originally designed by God for a much higher destiny than the lives which we find ourselves living in this tragic day and age. This, my soul knows, is true.

In contrast, mystical texts like The Urantia Bookwhich I have pored over for more than twenty years – presents an elaborate, advanced and sophisticated world and universal spiritual cosmology, a story of our world spiritual history worth learning and remembering. The truth about Adam and Eve, the origins of the actual real Annunaki / Nephilim, and the truthful facts about the Lucifer Rebellion are sobering indeed.

But The Urantia Book text is interlaced with inference that we must all eventually become one uniform racially blended olive skinned people, dissolving our separate national boundaries, living under unified global one world governance. I am opposed to such a government, as I feel that men  are not highly spiritually evolved enough to govern in such a way without enslaving human beings in fascism. History will support me here. Witness North Korea, China, the Pol Pot regime, Hitler, Stalin, witness what the United States of America is now become, under Barack Obama.

These bothersome sections of the Urantia Book make it the perfect document to be smoothly intellectually and spiritually usurped and misused by an ambitious Luciferian one world government to justify it’s intentions, even to prop up a global government figurehead who may pretend to be the returned Christ. Nothing is out of the realm of possibility at this point. I neither censor nor edit my own spiritual musings as I watch the days flow by and the plots unfurl.

I watch. The Holy Spirit speaks to me in the dead of night and I watch. I know what I am watching for. God tells me what to watch for. No mortal man or woman knows how much I already know about what to watch for.  I have not written down or recorded in any way ninety percent of what I am watching for. Only when my Lord tells me, then I may record it. Tonight I am recording this essay with God’s guidance. It suffices for now.

I reject the Annunaki lie that is being told to the world population in TV, film, video and modern philosophy which is soon to be usurped and misused to further enslave the human race. I want my mortal heritage and my human history back. I want my SPIRITUAL history back. I want to know the truth. I want to rush into the arms of my real and only King, the Lord of all Creation, the Son of God who will deliver this species from the world deception of the liar and the lie, once and for all.

I dream of a new Heaven. I long for a new Earth.

This world is still seized with barbarism and is not ready by any remote means to govern it’s species from one unified world administration. I see one world government as a recipe for disaster and a formula for the rise of the final Son of Perdition. My soul knows that we are all living in the era which just precedes the rise of this horrendous counterfeit Christ – the man of sin.

I well know how a one world government will end at this fateful intersection in human history. Presenting Annunaki genetic parents to the human race as some sort of ploy as distraction or to aid and abet the coming man of sin is not going to change that fact one iota. Too much biblical prophecy has already been fulfilled. My soul is on edge because I see fraud and false spiritual glamor everywhere being peddled as truth, and masses of unknowing TV consumers buying it, lock stock and barrel.

The true and actual literal history of the human race has been stolen from us. I can feel it. We are a mixed and generationally warring species, a  mongrel mixed blood race, living in complete historical specie amnesia. Individual persons who have total amnesia can be told anything about who they are, and they will believe it because they have no frame of reference. Likewise, a species who is living in total historical amnesia might be just as vulnerable to sophisticated lies and half truths, as they have no common frame of reference with which to compare what they are being told. Taboo as it is to say it, I must write the words and make the inner thought external: this then, our racial and species wide amnesia about who we are and where we come from, becomes the allegorical moment in human history when “Lucifer’s opportunity” finally comes, to deceive the masses on a world scale.

This is the way in which the man of Sin will enter onto the world stage. He will ride in “peaceably through flatteries” playing upon our deepest hopes and dreams, calling up the far ancient species-wide inner gnawing to know and understand our ancient genetic origins. He will present a lie so sublime, so seamless, so sophisticated and replete, that even  the Elect will possibly be fooled by it. He will supposedly give us the answers to all our deepest and most heartfelt longings AS A SPECIES. This is the turnkey to his world deception.

It will all revolve around the Annunaki legends of old.

Voynich Manuscript Appears in the Bible Codes

14 Feb
A page from the mysterious Voynich manuscript,...

The Voynich Manuscript has never been deciphered. Why is it written in the bible codes?

Copyright 2011-3011 By Weekly Tiger, All Rights Reserved.

Upon first glance, viewing the photos of the pages of the Voynich Manuscript, it occurred to me that the entire thing may a well executed hoax. I was ready to post a few documents on the web about it, and move on. Then I located an essay on Revelation13.net which states that the word “Voynich” is found in the Bible Codes. I examined a photo print out of one of the Bible Codes in which several words pertaining to the manuscript appear, and the word “Voynich” is clearly there, along with the word “decode.”

Now we have a real mystery to solve. We can drive little robotic machines across the surface of Mars, but we cannot decode the Voynich Manuscript after 500 years. Hmmmm. Believing as I do, that we are in fact, living in the last days, there must be some urgent import afoot regarding the decoding of this manuscript, else it would never have appeared in the Bible Codes.

It’s a damn shame that author Dan Brown has chosen to write fiction, rather than to focus on the real and urgent messages which are unfolding in the Bible Codes, among which, apparently, is a Divine Directive to decode the Voynich Manuscript before the rise of the Antichrist.

Below I have gathered several articles and images related to the Voynich Manuscript which I found intriguing, including the text of the essay from Revelation13.net with photo reproductions of the Bible Codes in which the word “Voynich” appears. If anyone reading this post has contributing information to share on this topic, please post it under comments.

Experts determine age of book ‘nobody can read’

February 10, 2011 By Daniel Stolte

The Voynich manuscript‘s unintelligible writings and strange illustrations have defied every attempt at understanding their meaning.

(PhysOrg.com) — While enthusiasts across the world pored over the Voynich manuscript, one of the most mysterious writings ever found – penned by an unknown author in a language no one understands – a research team at the UA solved one of its biggest mysteries: When was the book made?

University of Arizona researchers have cracked one of the puzzles surrounding what has been called “the world’s most mysterious manuscript” – the Voynich manuscript, a book filled with drawings and writings nobody has been able to make sense of to this day.

Using radiocarbon dating, a team led by Greg Hodgins in the UA’s department of physics has found the manuscript’s parchment pages date back to the early 15th century, making the book a century older than scholars had previously thought.

This tome makes the “DaVinci Code” look downright lackluster: Rows of text scrawled on visibly aged parchment, flowing around intricately drawn illustrations depicting plants, astronomical charts and human figures bathing in – perhaps – the fountain of youth. At first glance, the “Voynich manuscript” appears to be not unlike any other antique work of writing and drawing.

Revelation 13: The English King James version Bible code – Part 16 – The Voynich Manuscript

The “Bible Code” is a way of looking for hidden prophecies and passages in the Bible, by using a software program to search for messages in the Old Testament Hebrew text. The spaces between words are eliminated, so that the Old Testament is

a continuous block of Hebrew letters. Then, by skipping letters at a programmed interval, the program searches for words. There appear to be patterns to the passages where the words are found.


Also see the other pages on the King James Bible Code:


1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 17

On this page I show some Bible Code matrices on the subject of the Voynich Manuscript. The Voynich Manuscript is a strange document, that is hundreds of years old, that is written in a strange unbreakable code, and has bizarre drawings of plants and things. Many people have spent years studying it, trying to break the code. On the web you will find many web sites about it and different theories about it; some people claim to have cracked the code. It has also been claimed that it is a Satanic book. It could be that the Voynich manuscript is complete garbage, either written by an insane person, or as a joke. It could be that there is no meaning to it. But here we will see what the King James Bible Code has to say about it.


Using Codefinder software, I searched for Old Testament Bible Code matrices using keyword VOYNICH, in an ELS (skip) -10000 to 10000 search. I found the following three matrices.

This first matrix was at Deuteronomy 17:15 – 33:29. It contains these words:


— VOYNICH (ELS=7624)
— CODE
— SOLVE
— STRANGE

Also:


— THE BEAST

(in the Bible’s Book of Revelation, the Beast is the Antichrist, the Son of Satan, who is prophesied to rise to power as a Satanic imitation of Christ during the End Times in the future, before Armageddon)


— THE EVILS
— DEATH
— CURSED
— PUT AWAY EVIL FROM AMONG YOU
— PLANT, A VINE

(illustrations of plants are in the Voynich Manuscript)

The next matrix was at Psalm 49:11 – 89:11, and it contains:


— VOYNICH (ELS=4132)
— CODE
— STRANGE


Also:
— GRASS
— BEAST
— THORNS

(in the “Omen/Damian” movies about the Antichrist, the Antichrist is named Damian Thorne; also some plants have thorns)

The next matrix was at Joshua 18:10 – Judges 4:24, and it contains:


— VOYNICH (ELS=873)
— CODE
— DECODE


Also:
— WRITTEN IN THE BOOK

In conclusion, there are words appearing in the matrices above that may indicate the Voynich Manuscript does have a Satanic connection of some kind. And there also is a mention of plants (PLANT, GRASS, THORNS, A VINE), and the Voynich Manuscript does have illustrations of plants.

Numerous strange theories have emerged concerning the motive and purpose of the Voynich Manuscript.

An alien language

But a second, closer look reveals that nothing here is what it seems. Alien characters, some resembling Latin letters, others unlike anything used in any known language, are arranged into what appear to be words and sentences, except they don’t resemble anything written – or read – by human beings.

Hodgins, an assistant research scientist and assistant professor in the UA’s department of physics with a joint appointment at the UA’s School of Anthropology, is fascinated with the manuscript.

“Is it a code, a cipher of some kind? People are doing statistical analysis of letter use and word use – the tools that have been used for code breaking. But they still haven’t figured it out.”

A chemist and archaeological scientist by training, Hodgins works for the NSF Arizona Accelerator Mass Spectrometry, or AMS, Laboratory, which is shared between physics and geosciences. His team was able to nail down the time when the Voynich manuscript was made.

Currently owned by the Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library of Yale University, the manuscript was discovered in the Villa Mondragone near Rome in 1912 by antique book dealer Wilfrid Voynich while sifting through a chest of books offered for sale by the Society of Jesus. Voynich dedicated the remainder of his life to unveiling the mystery of the book’s origin and deciphering its meanings. He died 18 years later, without having wrestled any its secrets from the book.

Fast-forward to 2009: In the basement underneath the UA’s Physics and Atmospheric Sciences building, Hodgins and a crew of scientists, engineers and technicians stare at a computer monitor displaying graphs and lines. The humming sound of machinery fills the room and provides a backdrop drone for the rhythmic hissing of vacuum pumps.

Stainless steel pipes, alternating with heavy-bodied vacuum chambers, run along the walls.

This is the heart of the NSF-Arizona AMS Laboratory: an accelerator mass spectrometer capable of sniffing out traces of carbon-14 atoms that are present in samples, giving scientists clues about the age of those samples.

Radiocarbon dating: looking back in timeCarbon-14 is a rare form of carbon, a so-called radioisotope, that occurs naturally in the Earth’s environment. In the natural environment, there is only one carbon-14 atom per trillion non-radioactive or “stable” carbon isotopes, mostly carbon-12, but with small amounts of carbon-13. Carbon-14 is found in the atmosphere within carbon dioxide gas.

Plants produce their tissues by taking up carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, and so accumulate carbon-14 during life. Animals in turn accumulate carbon-14 in their tissues by eating plants, or eating other organisms that consume plants.

When a plant or animal dies, the level of carbon-14 in it remains drops at a predictable rate, and so can be used to calculate the amount of time that has passed since death.

What is true of plants and animals is also true of products made from them. Because the parchment pages of the Voynich Manuscript were made from animal skin, they can be radiocarbon-dated.

Pointing to the front end of the mass spectrometer, Hodgins explains the principle behind it. A tiny sample of carbon extracted from the manuscript is introduced into the “ion source” of the mass spectrometer.

“This causes the atoms in the sample to be ionized,” he explained, “meaning they now have an electric charge and can be propelled by electric and magnetic fields.”

Ejected from the ion source, the carbon ions are formed into a beam that races through the instrument at a fraction of the speed of light. Focusing the beam with magnetic lenses and filters, the mass spectrometer then splits it up into several beams, each containing only one isotope species of a certain mass.

“Carbon-14 is heavier than the other carbon isotopes,” Hodgins said. “This way, we can single out this isotope and determine how much of it is present in the sample. From that, we calculate its age.”

Dissecting a century-old book

To obtain the sample from the manuscript, Hodgins traveled to Yale University, where conservators had previously identified pages that had not been rebound or repaired and were the best to sample.

“I sat down with the Voynich manuscript on a desk in front of me, and delicately dissected a piece of parchment from the edge of a page with a scalpel,” Hodgins says.

He cut four samples from four pages, each measuring about 1 by 6 millimeters (ca. 1/16 by 1 inch) and brought them back to the laboratory in Tucson, where they were thoroughly cleaned.

“Because we were sampling from the page margins, we expected there are a lot of finger oils adsorbed over time,” Hodgins explains. “Plus, if the book was re-bound at any point, the sampling spots on these pages may actually not have been on the edge but on the spine, meaning they may have had adhesives on them.”

“The modern methods we use to date the material are so sensitive that traces of modern contamination would be enough to throw things off.”

Next, the sample was combusted, stripping the material of any unwanted compounds and leaving behind only its carbon content as a small dusting of graphite at the bottom of the vial.

“In radiocarbon dating, there is this whole system of many people working at it,” he said. “It takes many skills to produce a date. From start to finish, there is archaeological expertise; there is biochemical and chemical expertise; we need physicists, engineers and statisticians. It’s one of the joys of working in this place that we all work together toward this common goal.”

The UA’s team was able to push back the presumed age of the Voynich manuscript by 100 years, a discovery that killed some of the previously held hypotheses about its origins and history.

Elsewhere, experts analyzed the inks and paints that makes up the manuscript’s strange writings and images.

“It would be great if we could directly radiocarbon date the inks, but it is actually really difficult to do. First, they are on a surface only in trace amounts” Hodgins said. “The carbon content is usually extremely low. Moreover, sampling ink free of carbon from the parchment on which it sits is currently beyond our abilities. Finally, some inks are not carbon based, but are derived from ground minerals. They’re inorganic, so they don’t contain any carbon.”

“It was found that the colors are consistent with the Renaissance palette – the colors that were available at the time. But it doesn’t really tell us one way or the other, there is nothing suspicious there.”

While Hodgins is quick to point out that anything beyond the dating aspect is outside his expertise, he admits he is just as fascinated with the book as everybody else who has tried to unveil its history and meaning.

“The text shows strange characteristics like repetitive word use or the exchange of one letter in a sequence,” he says. “Oddities like that make it really hard to understand the meaning.”

“There are types of ciphers that embed meaning within gibberish. So it is possible that most of it does mean nothing. There is an old cipher method where you have a sheet of paper with strategically placed holes in it. And when those holes are laid on top of the writing, you read the letters in those holes.”

“Who knows what’s being written about in this manuscript, but it appears to be dealing with a range of topics that might relate to alchemy. Secrecy is sometimes associated with alchemy, and so it would be consistent with that tradition if the knowledge contained in the book was encoded. What we have are the drawings. Just look at those drawings: Are they botanical? Are they marine organisms? Are they astrological? Nobody knows.”

“I find this manuscript is absolutely fascinating as a window into a very interesting mind. Piecing these things together was fantastic. It’s a great puzzle that no one has cracked, and who doesn’t love a puzzle?”

The Voynich Manuscript

April 23, 2010 By Shelly Barclay 1 Comment

Page 1 Page 2

Sample of the text in the Voynich Manuscript

The Voynich Manuscript is a mysterious document that is kept in Yale University’s Beinecke Rare Book Library. It is made up of 246 vellum pages of the original 262. The document is an unassuming 7 inches by 10 inches. At first glance, one may assume that it is simply an old document, written in a language that they cannot understand, and they would be right, in a way. The thing about the Voynich Manuscript is that no one on Earth can read the language that it was written in. Furthermore, there are no other examples of the language and the author, date it was written and its place of origin are unknown.

Discovery and History of the Voynich Manuscript

The Voynich Manuscript is named for the American rare book collector and dealer who found the document. His name was Wilfred M. Voynich. Wilfred found the document in a Jesuit College just outside of Rome in 1912. The Voynich Manuscript had been documented and attempts made at discovering its origin before then. However, it had slipped out of history. Voynich brought it into the modern public eye.

The earliest definite knowledge of the Voynich Manuscript that researchers can find is dated 1608. Therefore, we know it is at least this old. However, there seems to be some disagreement about how much older than this date the document is. Voynich dated it back to the 13th century. Modern estimates date it back to between the 15th and 16th century. It is generally agreed that it is European in origin. Nonetheless, the contents of the Voynich Manuscript throw many people off and guesses as to its region of origin do vary.

Contents of the Voynich Manuscript

The pages of the Voynich Manuscript contain both pictures and text. The author used black, red, yellow, green and blue ink. Two-hundred-twelve of the pages contain pictures and text. Thirty-three of the pages contain only text. Some researchers refer to some of the pages as the key. Unfortunately, the key has not been very helpful in translating the text.

The pictures in the Voynich Manuscript are as mysterious as the language that it is written in. There are pictures that are obviously botanical in nature. Some of them depict plants of which modern science has no knowledge. There are drawings that seem to be related to astronomy. There are also drawings of nude women bathing in what seems to be an elaborate unknown plumbing system. Many of the pictures contain what appear to be captions. However, they are of no use.

The language used to write the Voynich Manuscript has resisted translation before and since its discovery in 1912. Experts disagree as to whether it is a language or a cipher. There seem to be patterns that point to a language. It also seems to be alphabetic. The perceived alphabet is thought to be between 19 and 28 characters. There may even be more than one language. However, the complete lack of other examples of this language and its resistance to translation leads some to believe that it must be a cipher created by the author, or authors.

Despite the lack of even so much as a title, most experts agree that the Voynich Manuscript is scientific in nature. They believe that the information thought to be contained within it pertains to botany, biology, astronomy and medicine.  The only evidence of what purpose it may have served is conjecture. We can make an educated guess as to its contents, based on the drawings, but a manuscript of that nature could have been used for any number of things.

The Author of the Voynich Manuscript

Amongst the earliest evidence of the Voynich Manuscript is a letter that mentioned Roger Bacon as its author. Unfortunately, the author of the letter was only guessing at the author of the manuscript. Roger Bacon was a scholar and a Franciscan friar. It is possible that he penned the document. However, this was only one man’s guess. There is no evidence that Roger Bacon was responsible, beyond that letter.

One theory regarding the author of the Voynich Manuscript has more to do with the author’s motives than the author himself. Because the document has resisted translation for so long, many people have come to think of it as a hoax. The idea is that someone wanted to pawn it off as a curiosity to Rudolph II of Bohemia, to whom the aforementioned letter was addressed.

A woman named Edith Sherwood concocted one interesting theory that I have come across. Edith has theorized that the Voynich Manuscript was written and illustrated by a young Leonardo DaVinci. While this is an intriguing theory, it may not hold much water.

There is still much research going on regarding the Voynich Manuscript. Some top experts have dedicated a lot of time to attempting to decipher the ‘code.’ Of course, there have been those who have claimed to have succeeded. However, all such claims are unsubstantiated, unfortunately. For now, we will just have to leave the answers up to our own imaginations and hope that it does not turn out to be a cookbook full of terrible recipes.

Another recent article on the Voynich Manuscript:

The Voynich manuscript is a mysterious, undeciphered illustrated book. It is thought to have been written in the 15th or 16th century. The author, script, and language of the manuscript remain unknown.Over its recorded existence, the Voynich manuscript has been the object of intense study by many professional and amateur cryptographers, including some top American and British codebreakers of World War II fame (all of whom failed to decrypt any portion of the text).This string of failures has turned the Voynich manuscript into a famous subject of historical cryptology, but it has also given weight to the theory that the book is simply an elaborate hoax—a meaningless sequence of arbitrary symbols. 

The book is named after the Polish-American book dealer Wilfrid M. Voynich, who acquired it in 1912. Currently the Voynich manuscript is stored in the Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library of Yale University as item “MS 408”. The first facsimile edition was published in 2005.

By current estimates, the book originally had 272 pages in 17 quires of 16 pages each. About 240 vellum pages remain today, and gaps in the page numbering (which seems to be later than the text) indicate that several pages were already missing when Voynich acquired it. A quill pen was used for the text and figure outlines, and colored paint was applied (somewhat crudely) to the figures, possibly at a later date. There is strong evidence that at one point in time, the pages of the book were arranged in a different order.

The text was clearly written from left to right, with a slightly ragged right margin. Longer sections are broken into paragraphs, sometimes with “bullets” in the left margin. There is no obvious punctuation. The ductus flows smoothly, suggesting that the scribe understood what he was writing when it was written; the manuscript does not give the impression that each character had to be calculated before being inked onto the page.

The text consists of over 170,000 discrete glyphs, usually separated from each other by narrow gaps. Most of the glyphs are written with one or two simple pen strokes. While there is some dispute as to whether certain glyphs are distinct or not, an alphabet with 20–30 glyphs would account for virtually all of the text; the exceptions are a few dozen rarer characters that occur only once or twice each.

Wider gaps divide the text into about 35,000 “words” of varying length. These seem to follow phonetic or orthographic laws of some sort; e.g., certain characters must appear in each word (like the vowels in English), some characters never follow others, and some may be doubled but others may not.

Statistical analysis of the text reveals patterns similar to those of natural languages. For instance, the word entropy (about 10 bits per word) is similar to that of English or Latin texts. Some words occur only in certain sections, or in only a few pages; others occur throughout the manuscript. There are very few repetitions among the thousand or so “labels” attached to the illustrations. In the herbal section, the first word on each page occurs only on that page and may be the name of the plant.

On the other hand, the Voynich manuscript’s “language” is quite unlike European languages in several aspects. Firstly, there are practically no words comprising more than ten glyphs, yet there are also few one- or two-letter words. The distribution of letters within the word is also rather peculiar: some characters only occur at the beginning of a word, some only at the end, and some always in the middle section—an arrangement found in Semitic alphabets but not in the Latin or Cyrillic alphabets (with the exception of the Greek letters Beta and Sigma).

The text seems to be more repetitive than typical European languages; there are instances where the same common word appears up to three times in a row. Words that differ only by one letter also repeat with unusual frequency.

There are only a few words in the manuscript written in a seemingly Latin script. On the last page, there are four lines of writing that are written in (rather distorted) Latin letters, except for two words in the main script. The lettering resembles European alphabets of the 15th century, but the words do not seem to make sense in any language. Also, a series of diagrams in the “astronomical” section has the names of ten of the months (from March to December) written in Latin script, with spelling suggestive of the medieval languages of France or the Iberian Peninsula. However, it is not known whether these bits of Latin script were part of the original text or were added later.

The history of the manuscript is still full of gaps, especially in its earliest part. Since the manuscript’s alphabet does not resemble any known script, and the text is still undeciphered, the only useful evidence as to the book’s age and origin are the illustrations—especially the dress and hairstyles of the human figures and a couple of castles that are seen in the diagrams. They are all characteristically European, and based on that evidence, most experts assign the book to dates between 1450 and 1520. This estimate is supported by other secondary clues.

The earliest confirmed owner of the Voynich manuscript was Georg Baresch, an obscure alchemist who lived in Prague in the early 17th century. Baresch apparently was just as puzzled as we are today about this “Sphynx” that had been “taking up space uselessly in his library” for many years. On learning that Athanasius Kircher, a Jesuit scholar from the Collegio Romano, had published a Coptic (Ethiopic) dictionary and “deciphered” the Egyptian hieroglyphs, Baresch sent a sample copy of the script to Kircher in Rome (twice), asking for clues. His 1639 letter to Kircher, which was recently located by Rene Zandbergen, is the earliest mention of the manuscript that has been found so far.

It is not known whether Kircher answered the request, but apparently, he was interested enough to try to acquire the book, which Baresch apparently refused to yield. Upon Baresch’s death, the manuscript passed to his friend Jan Marek Marci (Johannes Marcus Marci), then rector of Charles University in Prague, who promptly sent the book to Kircher, his longtime friend and correspondent. Marci’s cover letter (1666) is still attached to the manuscript.

Authorship

Many names have been proposed as possible authors of the Voynich manuscript.

Marci’s 1665 cover letter to Kircher says that, according to his late friend Raphael Mnishovsky, the book had once been bought by Rudolf II, Holy Roman Emperor and King of Bohemia (1552–1612), for 600 ducats—around US$ 30,800 as of 2005. According to the letter, Rudolf believed the author to be the Franciscan friar and polymath Roger Bacon (1214–1294).

Even though Marci said that he was “suspending his judgment” about this claim, it was taken quite seriously by Voynich, who did his best to confirm it. His conviction strongly influenced most deciphering attempts for the next 80 years. However, scholars who have looked at the Voynich manuscript and are familiar with Bacon’s works have flatly denied that possibility.[citation needed] Mnishovsky died in 1644, and the deal must have occurred before Rudolf’s abdication in 1611—at least 55 years before Marci’s letter.

The assumption that Roger Bacon was the author led Voynich to conclude that the person who sold the manuscript to Rudolf could only be John Dee, a mathematician and astrologer at the court of Queen Elizabeth I, known to have owned a large collection of Bacon’s manuscripts. This theory is also conveyed by Voynich manuscript scholar Gordon Rugg. Dee and his scrier (mediumic assistant) Edward Kelley lived in Bohemia for several years, where they had hoped to sell their services to the emperor. However, Dee’s meticulously kept diaries do not mention that sale and make it seem quite unlikely. If the Voynich manuscript author is not Bacon, the connection to Dee may just disappear. It is possible that Dee himself may have written it and spread the rumour that it was originally a work of Bacon’s in the hopes of later selling it.

Dee’s companion in Prague, Edward Kelley, was a self-styled alchemist who claimed to be able to turn copper into gold by means of a secret powder that he had dug out of a Bishop’s tomb in Wales. As Dee’s scrier, he claimed to be able to invoke angels through a shewstone and had long conversations with them—which Dee dutifully noted down. The angel’s language was called Enochian, after Enoch, the Biblical father of Methuselah; according to legend, he had been taken on a tour of heaven by angels and had later written a book about what he saw there. Several people (see below) have suggested that, just as Kelley may have invented Enochian to dupe Dee[citation needed], he could have fabricated the Voynich manuscript to swindle the emperor (who was already paying Kelley for his supposed alchemical expertise).

Fabrication by Voynich

Others suspected Voynich of having fabricated the manuscript himself. As an antique-book dealer, he probably had the necessary knowledge and means, and a “lost book” by Roger Bacon would have been worth a fortune. However, by expert internal dating of the manuscript, and the recent discovery of Baresch’s letter to Kircher, many consider that possibility to have been eliminated.[10] Still, internal dating is often highly speculative and depends on many assumptions that may themselves be lacking in hard factual support. There has also been debate over what date the internal evidence suggests, with some scholars perceiving a more modern date. Further, Baresch’s letter (and Marci’s as well) only establish the existence of a manuscript, not that the Voynich manuscript is the same one spoken of there. In fact, their letters might even be taken as the motivation for Voynich to fabricate the manuscript (assuming he was aware of them), rather than as proofs authenticating it; but if a fabrication, the question arises as to why neither Voynich nor his widow ever attempted to sell it. Fame rather than fortune might be speculated as a motive, but that would not explain why Voynich’s widow never attempted to sell the manuscript after his death. All things considered, most who have studied the history of the manuscript do not believe that Voynich fabricated the document.

Language

There are many theories about the Voynich manuscript’s “language”. Here are some:

Ciphers

According to the “letter-based cipher” theory, the Voynich manuscript contains a meaningful text in some European language, that was intentionally rendered obscure by mapping it to the Voynich manuscript “alphabet” through a cipher of some sort—an algorithm that operated on individual letters.

Micrography

Following its 1912 rediscovery, one of the earliest efforts to unlock the book’s secrets (and the first of many premature claims of decipherment) was made in 1921 by William Newbold of the University of Pennsylvania. His singular hypothesis held that the visible text is meaningless itself, but that each apparent “letter” is in fact constructed of a series of tiny markings only discernible under magnification. These markings were supposed to be based on ancient Greek shorthand, forming a second level of script that held the real content of the writing.

Steganography

This theory holds that the text of the Voynich manuscript is mostly meaningless, but contains meaningful information hidden in inconspicuous details—e.g. the second letter of every word, or the number of letters in each line. This technique, called steganography, is very old, and was described by Johannes Trithemius in 1499.

Exotic natural language

The linguist Jacques Guy once suggested that the Voynich manuscript text could be some exotic natural language, written in the plain with an invented alphabet. The word structure is indeed similar to that of many language families of East and Central Asia, mainly Sino-Tibetan (Chinese, Tibetan, and Burmese), Austroasiatic (Vietnamese, Khmer, etc.) and possibly Tai (Thai, Lao, etc.). In many of these languages, the “words” have only one syllable; and syllables have a rather rich structure, including tonal patterns.

Glossolalia

In their book, Kennedy and Churchill hint to the possibility that the Voynich manuscript may be a case of glossolalia, channeling or outsider art.

If this is true, then the author felt compelled to write large amounts of text in a manner which somehow resembles stream of consciousness, either due to voices heard, or due to his own urge. While in glossolalia this often takes place in an invented language (usually made up of fragments of the author’s own language), invented scripts for this purpose are rare.

Constructed language

The peculiar internal structure of Voynich manuscript “words” has led William F. Friedman and John Tiltman to arrive independently at the conjecture that the text could be a constructed language in the plain—specifically, a philosophical or a priori language. In languages of this class, the vocabulary is organized according to a category system, so that the general meaning of a word can be deduced from its sequence of letters.

Hoax

The bizarre features of the Voynich manuscript text (such as the doubled and tripled words), the suspicious contents of its illustrations (such as the chimeric plants) and its lack of historical reference support the idea that the manuscript is really a hoax. In other words, if no one is able to extract meaning from the book, perhaps this is because the document contains no meaningful content in the first place.

The argument for authenticity, on the other hand, is that the manuscript appears too sophisticated to be a hoax. While hoaxes of the period tended to be quite crude, the Voynich manuscript exhibits many subtle characteristics which only show up after careful statistical analysis. These fine touches require much more work than would have been necessary for a simple forgery, and some of the complexities are only visible with modern tools. The question then arises: why would the author employ such a complex and laborious forging algorithm in the creation of a simplistic hoax, if no one in the expected audience (that is, the creator’s contemporaries) could tell the difference?

Collected Images of the Voynich Manuscript

Voynich Manuscript, Named in Bible Codes, Now Dated to 1404 – 1438

A page from the mysterious Voynich manuscript,...

Only one copy of the Voynich Manuscript exists.

Copyright 2011-3011 By Photonic Portal, All Rights Reserved.

Upon first glance, viewing the photos of the pages of the Voynich Manuscript, it occurred to me that the entire thing may a well executed hoax. I was ready to post a few documents on the web about it, and move on. Then I located an essay on Revelation13.net which states that the word “Voynich” is found in the Bible Codes. I examined a photo print out of one of the Bible Codes in which several words pertaining to the manuscript appear, and the word “Voynich” is clearly there, along with the word “decode.”

Now we have a real mystery to solve. We can drive little robotic machines across the surface of Mars, but we cannot decode the Voynich Manuscript after 500 years. Hmmmm. Believing as I do, that we are in fact, living in the last days, there must be some urgent import afoot regarding the decoding of this manuscript, else it would never have appeared in the Bible Codes.

It’s a damn shame that author Dan Brown has chosen to write fiction, rather than to focus on the real and urgent messages which are unfolding in the Bible Codes, among which, apparently, is a Divine Directive to decode the Voynich Manuscript before the rise of the Antichrist.

Below I have gathered several articles and images related to the Voynich Manuscript which I found intriguing, including the text of the essay from Revelation13.net with photo reproductions of the Bible Codes in which the word “Voynich” appears. If anyone reading this post has contributing information to share on this topic, please post it under comments.

Experts determine age of book ‘nobody can read’

February 10, 2011 By Daniel Stolte

The Voynich manuscript‘s unintelligible writings and strange illustrations have defied every attempt at understanding their meaning.

(PhysOrg.com) — While enthusiasts across the world pored over the Voynich manuscript, one of the most mysterious writings ever found – penned by an unknown author in a language no one understands – a research team at the UA solved one of its biggest mysteries: When was the book made?

University of Arizona researchers have cracked one of the puzzles surrounding what has been called “the world’s most mysterious manuscript” – the Voynich manuscript, a book filled with drawings and writings nobody has been able to make sense of to this day.

Using radiocarbon dating, a team led by Greg Hodgins in the UA’s department of physics has found the manuscript’s parchment pages date back to the early 15th century, making the book a century older than scholars had previously thought.

This tome makes the “DaVinci Code” look downright lackluster: Rows of text scrawled on visibly aged parchment, flowing around intricately drawn illustrations depicting plants, astronomical charts and human figures bathing in – perhaps – the fountain of youth. At first glance, the “Voynich manuscript” appears to be not unlike any other antique work of writing and drawing.

Revelation 13: The English King James version Bible code – Part 16 – The Voynich Manuscript

The “Bible Code” is a way of looking for hidden prophecies and passages in the Bible, by using a software program to search for messages in the Old Testament Hebrew text. The spaces between words are eliminated, so that the Old Testament is

a continuous block of Hebrew letters. Then, by skipping letters at a programmed interval, the program searches for words. There appear to be patterns to the passages where the words are found.


Also see the other pages on the King James Bible Code:

On this page I show some Bible Code matrices on the subject of the Voynich Manuscript. The Voynich Manuscript is a strange document, that is hundreds of years old, that is written in a strange unbreakable code, and has bizarre drawings of plants and things. Many people have spent years studying it, trying to break the code. On the web you will find many web sites about it and different theories about it; some people claim to have cracked the code. It has also been claimed that it is a Satanic book. It could be that the Voynich manuscript is complete garbage, either written by an insane person, or as a joke. It could be that there is no meaning to it. But here we will see what the King James Bible Code has to say about it.


Using Codefinder software, I searched for Old Testament Bible Code matrices using keyword VOYNICH, in an ELS (skip) -10000 to 10000 search. I found the following three matrices.

This first matrix was at Deuteronomy 17:15 – 33:29. It contains these words:


— VOYNICH (ELS=7624)
— CODE
— SOLVE
— STRANGE

Also:


— THE BEAST

(in the Bible’s Book of Revelation, the Beast is the Antichrist, the Son of Satan, who is prophesied to rise to power as a Satanic imitation of Christ during the End Times in the future, before Armageddon)


— THE EVILS
— DEATH
— CURSED
— PUT AWAY EVIL FROM AMONG YOU
— PLANT, A VINE

(illustrations of plants are in the Voynich Manuscript)

The next matrix was at Psalm 49:11 – 89:11, and it contains:


— VOYNICH (ELS=4132)
— CODE
— STRANGE


Also:
— GRASS
— BEAST
— THORNS

(in the “Omen/Damian” movies about the Antichrist, the Antichrist is named Damian Thorne; also some plants have thorns)

The next matrix was at Joshua 18:10 – Judges 4:24, and it contains:


— VOYNICH (ELS=873)
— CODE
— DECODE


Also:
— WRITTEN IN THE BOOK

In conclusion, there are words appearing in the matrices above that may indicate the Voynich Manuscript does have a Satanic connection of some kind. And there also is a mention of plants (PLANT, GRASS, THORNS, A VINE), and the Voynich Manuscript does have illustrations of plants.

Numerous strange theories have emerged concerning the motive and purpose of the Voynich Manuscript.

An alien language

But a second, closer look reveals that nothing here is what it seems. Alien characters, some resembling Latin letters, others unlike anything used in any known language, are arranged into what appear to be words and sentences, except they don’t resemble anything written – or read – by human beings.

Hodgins, an assistant research scientist and assistant professor in the UA’s department of physics with a joint appointment at the UA’s School of Anthropology, is fascinated with the manuscript.

“Is it a code, a cipher of some kind? People are doing statistical analysis of letter use and word use – the tools that have been used for code breaking. But they still haven’t figured it out.”

A chemist and archaeological scientist by training, Hodgins works for the NSF Arizona Accelerator Mass Spectrometry, or AMS, Laboratory, which is shared between physics and geosciences. His team was able to nail down the time when the Voynich manuscript was made.

Currently owned by the Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library of Yale University, the manuscript was discovered in the Villa Mondragone near Rome in 1912 by antique book dealer Wilfrid Voynich while sifting through a chest of books offered for sale by the Society of Jesus. Voynich dedicated the remainder of his life to unveiling the mystery of the book’s origin and deciphering its meanings. He died 18 years later, without having wrestled any its secrets from the book.

Fast-forward to 2009: In the basement underneath the UA’s Physics and Atmospheric Sciences building, Hodgins and a crew of scientists, engineers and technicians stare at a computer monitor displaying graphs and lines. The humming sound of machinery fills the room and provides a backdrop drone for the rhythmic hissing of vacuum pumps.

Stainless steel pipes, alternating with heavy-bodied vacuum chambers, run along the walls.

This is the heart of the NSF-Arizona AMS Laboratory: an accelerator mass spectrometer capable of sniffing out traces of carbon-14 atoms that are present in samples, giving scientists clues about the age of those samples.

Radiocarbon dating: looking back in timeCarbon-14 is a rare form of carbon, a so-called radioisotope, that occurs naturally in the Earth’s environment. In the natural environment, there is only one carbon-14 atom per trillion non-radioactive or “stable” carbon isotopes, mostly carbon-12, but with small amounts of carbon-13. Carbon-14 is found in the atmosphere within carbon dioxide gas.

Plants produce their tissues by taking up carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, and so accumulate carbon-14 during life. Animals in turn accumulate carbon-14 in their tissues by eating plants, or eating other organisms that consume plants.

When a plant or animal dies, the level of carbon-14 in it remains drops at a predictable rate, and so can be used to calculate the amount of time that has passed since death.

What is true of plants and animals is also true of products made from them. Because the parchment pages of the Voynich Manuscript were made from animal skin, they can be radiocarbon-dated.

Pointing to the front end of the mass spectrometer, Hodgins explains the principle behind it. A tiny sample of carbon extracted from the manuscript is introduced into the “ion source” of the mass spectrometer.

“This causes the atoms in the sample to be ionized,” he explained, “meaning they now have an electric charge and can be propelled by electric and magnetic fields.”

Ejected from the ion source, the carbon ions are formed into a beam that races through the instrument at a fraction of the speed of light. Focusing the beam with magnetic lenses and filters, the mass spectrometer then splits it up into several beams, each containing only one isotope species of a certain mass.

“Carbon-14 is heavier than the other carbon isotopes,” Hodgins said. “This way, we can single out this isotope and determine how much of it is present in the sample. From that, we calculate its age.”

Dissecting a century-old book

To obtain the sample from the manuscript, Hodgins traveled to Yale University, where conservators had previously identified pages that had not been rebound or repaired and were the best to sample.

“I sat down with the Voynich manuscript on a desk in front of me, and delicately dissected a piece of parchment from the edge of a page with a scalpel,” Hodgins says.

He cut four samples from four pages, each measuring about 1 by 6 millimeters (ca. 1/16 by 1 inch) and brought them back to the laboratory in Tucson, where they were thoroughly cleaned.

“Because we were sampling from the page margins, we expected there are a lot of finger oils adsorbed over time,” Hodgins explains. “Plus, if the book was re-bound at any point, the sampling spots on these pages may actually not have been on the edge but on the spine, meaning they may have had adhesives on them.”

“The modern methods we use to date the material are so sensitive that traces of modern contamination would be enough to throw things off.”

Next, the sample was combusted, stripping the material of any unwanted compounds and leaving behind only its carbon content as a small dusting of graphite at the bottom of the vial.

“In radiocarbon dating, there is this whole system of many people working at it,” he said. “It takes many skills to produce a date. From start to finish, there is archaeological expertise; there is biochemical and chemical expertise; we need physicists, engineers and statisticians. It’s one of the joys of working in this place that we all work together toward this common goal.”

The UA’s team was able to push back the presumed age of the Voynich manuscript by 100 years, a discovery that killed some of the previously held hypotheses about its origins and history.

Elsewhere, experts analyzed the inks and paints that makes up the manuscript’s strange writings and images.

“It would be great if we could directly radiocarbon date the inks, but it is actually really difficult to do. First, they are on a surface only in trace amounts” Hodgins said. “The carbon content is usually extremely low. Moreover, sampling ink free of carbon from the parchment on which it sits is currently beyond our abilities. Finally, some inks are not carbon based, but are derived from ground minerals. They’re inorganic, so they don’t contain any carbon.”

“It was found that the colors are consistent with the Renaissance palette – the colors that were available at the time. But it doesn’t really tell us one way or the other, there is nothing suspicious there.”

While Hodgins is quick to point out that anything beyond the dating aspect is outside his expertise, he admits he is just as fascinated with the book as everybody else who has tried to unveil its history and meaning.

“The text shows strange characteristics like repetitive word use or the exchange of one letter in a sequence,” he says. “Oddities like that make it really hard to understand the meaning.”

“There are types of ciphers that embed meaning within gibberish. So it is possible that most of it does mean nothing. There is an old cipher method where you have a sheet of paper with strategically placed holes in it. And when those holes are laid on top of the writing, you read the letters in those holes.”

“Who knows what’s being written about in this manuscript, but it appears to be dealing with a range of topics that might relate to alchemy. Secrecy is sometimes associated with alchemy, and so it would be consistent with that tradition if the knowledge contained in the book was encoded. What we have are the drawings. Just look at those drawings: Are they botanical? Are they marine organisms? Are they astrological? Nobody knows.”

“I find this manuscript is absolutely fascinating as a window into a very interesting mind. Piecing these things together was fantastic. It’s a great puzzle that no one has cracked, and who doesn’t love a puzzle?”

The Voynich Manuscript

April 23, 2010 By Shelly Barclay 1 Comment

Sample of the text in the Voynich Manuscript

The Voynich Manuscript is a mysterious document that is kept in Yale University’s Beinecke Rare Book Library. It is made up of 246 vellum pages of the original 262. The document is an unassuming 7 inches by 10 inches. At first glance, one may assume that it is simply an old document, written in a language that they cannot understand, and they would be right, in a way. The thing about the Voynich Manuscript is that no one on Earth can read the language that it was written in. Furthermore, there are no other examples of the language and the author, date it was written and its place of origin are unknown.

Discovery and History of the Voynich Manuscript

The Voynich Manuscript is named for the American rare book collector and dealer who found the document. His name was Wilfred M. Voynich. Wilfred found the document in a Jesuit College just outside of Rome in 1912. The Voynich Manuscript had been documented and attempts made at discovering its origin before then. However, it had slipped out of history. Voynich brought it into the modern public eye.

The earliest definite knowledge of the Voynich Manuscript that researchers can find is dated 1608. Therefore, we know it is at least this old. However, there seems to be some disagreement about how much older than this date the document is. Voynich dated it back to the 13th century. Modern estimates date it back to between the 15th and 16th century. It is generally agreed that it is European in origin. Nonetheless, the contents of the Voynich Manuscript throw many people off and guesses as to its region of origin do vary.

Contents of the Voynich Manuscript

The pages of the Voynich Manuscript contain both pictures and text. The author used black, red, yellow, green and blue ink. Two-hundred-twelve of the pages contain pictures and text. Thirty-three of the pages contain only text. Some researchers refer to some of the pages as the key. Unfortunately, the key has not been very helpful in translating the text.

The pictures in the Voynich Manuscript are as mysterious as the language that it is written in. There are pictures that are obviously botanical in nature. Some of them depict plants of which modern science has no knowledge. There are drawings that seem to be related to astronomy. There are also drawings of nude women bathing in what seems to be an elaborate unknown plumbing system. Many of the pictures contain what appear to be captions. However, they are of no use.

The language used to write the Voynich Manuscript has resisted translation before and since its discovery in 1912. Experts disagree as to whether it is a language or a cipher. There seem to be patterns that point to a language. It also seems to be alphabetic. The perceived alphabet is thought to be between 19 and 28 characters. There may even be more than one language. However, the complete lack of other examples of this language and its resistance to translation leads some to believe that it must be a cipher created by the author, or authors.

Despite the lack of even so much as a title, most experts agree that the Voynich Manuscript is scientific in nature. They believe that the information thought to be contained within it pertains to botany, biology, astronomy and medicine.  The only evidence of what purpose it may have served is conjecture. We can make an educated guess as to its contents, based on the drawings, but a manuscript of that nature could have been used for any number of things.

The Author of the Voynich Manuscript

Amongst the earliest evidence of the Voynich Manuscript is a letter that mentioned Roger Bacon as its author. Unfortunately, the author of the letter was only guessing at the author of the manuscript. Roger Bacon was a scholar and a Franciscan friar. It is possible that he penned the document. However, this was only one man’s guess. There is no evidence that Roger Bacon was responsible, beyond that letter.

One theory regarding the author of the Voynich Manuscript has more to do with the author’s motives than the author himself. Because the document has resisted translation for so long, many people have come to think of it as a hoax. The idea is that someone wanted to pawn it off as a curiosity to Rudolph II of Bohemia, to whom the aforementioned letter was addressed.

A woman named Edith Sherwood concocted one interesting theory that I have come across. Edith has theorized that the Voynich Manuscript was written and illustrated by a young Leonardo DaVinci. While this is an intriguing theory, it may not hold much water.

There is still much research going on regarding the Voynich Manuscript. Some top experts have dedicated a lot of time to attempting to decipher the ‘code.’ Of course, there have been those who have claimed to have succeeded. However, all such claims are unsubstantiated, unfortunately. For now, we will just have to leave the answers up to our own imaginations and hope that it does not turn out to be a cookbook full of terrible recipes.

Another recent article on the Voynich Manuscript:

The Voynich manuscript is a mysterious, undeciphered illustrated book. It is thought to have been written in the 15th or 16th century. The author, script, and language of the manuscript remain unknown.Over its recorded existence, the Voynich manuscript has been the object of intense study by many professional and amateur cryptographers, including some top American and British codebreakers of World War II fame (all of whom failed to decrypt any portion of the text).This string of failures has turned the Voynich manuscript into a famous subject of historical cryptology, but it has also given weight to the theory that the book is simply an elaborate hoax—a meaningless sequence of arbitrary symbols.The book is named after the Polish-American book dealer Wilfrid M. Voynich, who acquired it in 1912. Currently the Voynich manuscript is stored in the Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library of Yale University as item “MS 408”. The first facsimile edition was published in 2005.

By current estimates, the book originally had 272 pages in 17 quires of 16 pages each. About 240 vellum pages remain today, and gaps in the page numbering (which seems to be later than the text) indicate that several pages were already missing when Voynich acquired it. A quill pen was used for the text and figure outlines, and colored paint was applied (somewhat crudely) to the figures, possibly at a later date. There is strong evidence that at one point in time, the pages of the book were arranged in a different order.

The text was clearly written from left to right, with a slightly ragged right margin. Longer sections are broken into paragraphs, sometimes with “bullets” in the left margin. There is no obvious punctuation. The ductus flows smoothly, suggesting that the scribe understood what he was writing when it was written; the manuscript does not give the impression that each character had to be calculated before being inked onto the page.

The text consists of over 170,000 discrete glyphs, usually separated from each other by narrow gaps. Most of the glyphs are written with one or two simple pen strokes. While there is some dispute as to whether certain glyphs are distinct or not, an alphabet with 20–30 glyphs would account for virtually all of the text; the exceptions are a few dozen rarer characters that occur only once or twice each.

Wider gaps divide the text into about 35,000 “words” of varying length. These seem to follow phonetic or orthographic laws of some sort; e.g., certain characters must appear in each word (like the vowels in English), some characters never follow others, and some may be doubled but others may not.

Statistical analysis of the text reveals patterns similar to those of natural languages. For instance, the word entropy (about 10 bits per word) is similar to that of English or Latin texts. Some words occur only in certain sections, or in only a few pages; others occur throughout the manuscript. There are very few repetitions among the thousand or so “labels” attached to the illustrations. In the herbal section, the first word on each page occurs only on that page and may be the name of the plant.

On the other hand, the Voynich manuscript’s “language” is quite unlike European languages in several aspects. Firstly, there are practically no words comprising more than ten glyphs, yet there are also few one- or two-letter words. The distribution of letters within the word is also rather peculiar: some characters only occur at the beginning of a word, some only at the end, and some always in the middle section—an arrangement found in Semitic alphabets but not in the Latin or Cyrillic alphabets (with the exception of the Greek letters Beta and Sigma).

The text seems to be more repetitive than typical European languages; there are instances where the same common word appears up to three times in a row. Words that differ only by one letter also repeat with unusual frequency.

There are only a few words in the manuscript written in a seemingly Latin script. On the last page, there are four lines of writing that are written in (rather distorted) Latin letters, except for two words in the main script. The lettering resembles European alphabets of the 15th century, but the words do not seem to make sense in any language. Also, a series of diagrams in the “astronomical” section has the names of ten of the months (from March to December) written in Latin script, with spelling suggestive of the medieval languages of France or the Iberian Peninsula. However, it is not known whether these bits of Latin script were part of the original text or were added later.

The history of the manuscript is still full of gaps, especially in its earliest part. Since the manuscript’s alphabet does not resemble any known script, and the text is still undeciphered, the only useful evidence as to the book’s age and origin are the illustrations—especially the dress and hairstyles of the human figures and a couple of castles that are seen in the diagrams. They are all characteristically European, and based on that evidence, most experts assign the book to dates between 1450 and 1520. This estimate is supported by other secondary clues.

The earliest confirmed owner of the Voynich manuscript was Georg Baresch, an obscure alchemist who lived in Prague in the early 17th century. Baresch apparently was just as puzzled as we are today about this “Sphynx” that had been “taking up space uselessly in his library” for many years. On learning that Athanasius Kircher, a Jesuit scholar from the Collegio Romano, had published a Coptic (Ethiopic) dictionary and “deciphered” the Egyptian hieroglyphs, Baresch sent a sample copy of the script to Kircher in Rome (twice), asking for clues. His 1639 letter to Kircher, which was recently located by Rene Zandbergen, is the earliest mention of the manuscript that has been found so far.

It is not known whether Kircher answered the request, but apparently, he was interested enough to try to acquire the book, which Baresch apparently refused to yield. Upon Baresch’s death, the manuscript passed to his friend Jan Marek Marci (Johannes Marcus Marci), then rector of Charles University in Prague, who promptly sent the book to Kircher, his longtime friend and correspondent. Marci’s cover letter (1666) is still attached to the manuscript.

Authorship

Many names have been proposed as possible authors of the Voynich manuscript.

Marci’s 1665 cover letter to Kircher says that, according to his late friend Raphael Mnishovsky, the book had once been bought by Rudolf II, Holy Roman Emperor and King of Bohemia (1552–1612), for 600 ducats—around US$ 30,800 as of 2005. According to the letter, Rudolf believed the author to be the Franciscan friar and polymath Roger Bacon (1214–1294).

Even though Marci said that he was “suspending his judgment” about this claim, it was taken quite seriously by Voynich, who did his best to confirm it. His conviction strongly influenced most deciphering attempts for the next 80 years. However, scholars who have looked at the Voynich manuscript and are familiar with Bacon’s works have flatly denied that possibility.[citation needed] Mnishovsky died in 1644, and the deal must have occurred before Rudolf’s abdication in 1611—at least 55 years before Marci’s letter.

The assumption that Roger Bacon was the author led Voynich to conclude that the person who sold the manuscript to Rudolf could only be John Dee, a mathematician and astrologer at the court of Queen Elizabeth I, known to have owned a large collection of Bacon’s manuscripts. This theory is also conveyed by Voynich manuscript scholar Gordon Rugg. Dee and his scrier (mediumic assistant) Edward Kelley lived in Bohemia for several years, where they had hoped to sell their services to the emperor. However, Dee’s meticulously kept diaries do not mention that sale and make it seem quite unlikely. If the Voynich manuscript author is not Bacon, the connection to Dee may just disappear. It is possible that Dee himself may have written it and spread the rumour that it was originally a work of Bacon’s in the hopes of later selling it.

Dee’s companion in Prague, Edward Kelley, was a self-styled alchemist who claimed to be able to turn copper into gold by means of a secret powder that he had dug out of a Bishop’s tomb in Wales. As Dee’s scrier, he claimed to be able to invoke angels through a shewstone and had long conversations with them—which Dee dutifully noted down. The angel’s language was called Enochian, after Enoch, the Biblical father of Methuselah; according to legend, he had been taken on a tour of heaven by angels and had later written a book about what he saw there. Several people (see below) have suggested that, just as Kelley may have invented Enochian to dupe Dee[citation needed], he could have fabricated the Voynich manuscript to swindle the emperor (who was already paying Kelley for his supposed alchemical expertise).

Fabrication by Voynich

Others suspected Voynich of having fabricated the manuscript himself. As an antique-book dealer, he probably had the necessary knowledge and means, and a “lost book” by Roger Bacon would have been worth a fortune. However, by expert internal dating of the manuscript, and the recent discovery of Baresch’s letter to Kircher, many consider that possibility to have been eliminated.[10] Still, internal dating is often highly speculative and depends on many assumptions that may themselves be lacking in hard factual support. There has also been debate over what date the internal evidence suggests, with some scholars perceiving a more modern date. Further, Baresch’s letter (and Marci’s as well) only establish the existence of a manuscript, not that the Voynich manuscript is the same one spoken of there. In fact, their letters might even be taken as the motivation for Voynich to fabricate the manuscript (assuming he was aware of them), rather than as proofs authenticating it; but if a fabrication, the question arises as to why neither Voynich nor his widow ever attempted to sell it. Fame rather than fortune might be speculated as a motive, but that would not explain why Voynich’s widow never attempted to sell the manuscript after his death. All things considered, most who have studied the history of the manuscript do not believe that Voynich fabricated the document.

Language

There are many theories about the Voynich manuscript’s “language”. Here are some:

Ciphers

According to the “letter-based cipher” theory, the Voynich manuscript contains a meaningful text in some European language, that was intentionally rendered obscure by mapping it to the Voynich manuscript “alphabet” through a cipher of some sort—an algorithm that operated on individual letters.

Micrography

Following its 1912 rediscovery, one of the earliest efforts to unlock the book’s secrets (and the first of many premature claims of decipherment) was made in 1921 by William Newbold of the University of Pennsylvania. His singular hypothesis held that the visible text is meaningless itself, but that each apparent “letter” is in fact constructed of a series of tiny markings only discernible under magnification. These markings were supposed to be based on ancient Greek shorthand, forming a second level of script that held the real content of the writing.

Steganography

This theory holds that the text of the Voynich manuscript is mostly meaningless, but contains meaningful information hidden in inconspicuous details—e.g. the second letter of every word, or the number of letters in each line. This technique, called steganography, is very old, and was described by Johannes Trithemius in 1499.

Exotic natural language

The linguist Jacques Guy once suggested that the Voynich manuscript text could be some exotic natural language, written in the plain with an invented alphabet. The word structure is indeed similar to that of many language families of East and Central Asia, mainly Sino-Tibetan (Chinese, Tibetan, and Burmese), Austroasiatic (Vietnamese, Khmer, etc.) and possibly Tai (Thai, Lao, etc.). In many of these languages, the “words” have only one syllable; and syllables have a rather rich structure, including tonal patterns.

Glossolalia

In their book, Kennedy and Churchill hint to the possibility that the Voynich manuscript may be a case of glossolalia, channeling or outsider art.

If this is true, then the author felt compelled to write large amounts of text in a manner which somehow resembles stream of consciousness, either due to voices heard, or due to his own urge. While in glossolalia this often takes place in an invented language (usually made up of fragments of the author’s own language), invented scripts for this purpose are rare.

Constructed language

The peculiar internal structure of Voynich manuscript “words” has led William F. Friedman and John Tiltman to arrive independently at the conjecture that the text could be a constructed language in the plain—specifically, a philosophical or a priori language. In languages of this class, the vocabulary is organized according to a category system, so that the general meaning of a word can be deduced from its sequence of letters.

Hoax

The bizarre features of the Voynich manuscript text (such as the doubled and tripled words), the suspicious contents of its illustrations (such as the chimeric plants) and its lack of historical reference support the idea that the manuscript is really a hoax. In other words, if no one is able to extract meaning from the book, perhaps this is because the document contains no meaningful content in the first place.

The argument for authenticity, on the other hand, is that the manuscript appears too sophisticated to be a hoax. While hoaxes of the period tended to be quite crude, the Voynich manuscript exhibits many subtle characteristics which only show up after careful statistical analysis. These fine touches require much more work than would have been necessary for a simple forgery, and some of the complexities are only visible with modern tools. The question then arises: why would the author employ such a complex and laborious forging algorithm in the creation of a simplistic hoax, if no one in the expected audience (that is, the creator’s contemporaries) could tell the difference?

Could Comet Elenin Be the Prophesied Biblical “Wormwood” of Revelation 8:10-11?

When I first began writing about Nibiru and ancient biblical prophecies which predict a possible pole shift during our lifetime, I was met with widespread ridicule online. It was early 2008.Much of the mockery resulted from an earlier moment of “internet rumor mill madness” that occurred in 2003.

In 2003 a huge “false alarm” concerning a May 2003 pole shift event had taken place on the internet, which, as it turned out, was more about selling the doomsday books of one mislead author than it was about factual science.Due to that misinformation campaign, many pole shift researchers were widely discredited and writers like me had an uphill battle in early 2008 trying to convince a skeptical world public that the danger was real, imminent and should be taken seriously. I have to say I am grateful that the History Channel is broadcasting material on this subject.

The recent discovery of Comet Elenin has also intrigued sky watchers who wonder if it might be the prophesied “great star, blazing like a torch”. Comet Elenin will pass remarkably, uncomfortably close to earth on October 18th 2011. Many citizen journalists and amateur astronomers are alarmed at how little Big Media press has been given to this coming astronomical event this fall. If the earth passes too closely through the tail of the comet, the debris field could pummel the planet and cause great calamity. Is Revelation 8:10-11 a warning about comets that approach too closely?

Our civil defense systems in America are badly outdated and in need of urgent repair. Otherwise untold millions on the surface will face death by catastrophe with no protection and no recourse should this event be soon bearing down on our world.

Recently science, paleontology, anthropology, archeology, and geology seem to be converging, just as I had predicted they would three years ago, as their knowledge and research intersects new evidence which is now piling up: that deep in our planet’s past there have indeed been periodic catastrophes which resulted from space objects either flying by earth in close proximity, or their approaching debris fields pummeling the planet and causing massive devastation to surface features and species. The History Channel is contributing much to the world’s public awareness that we should be concerned about the emerging evidence from divergent fields of science and research.

I had written in my “Original Global Call to Awakening” in 2008 that religion, mythology, science, archeology, prophecy and geological evidence would soon converge into a tapestry of facts that could no longer be ignored.

Our own government and the governments of other nations suppressed much of this material themselves for nearly 50 years, but thanks to the recent spiritual awakening of America and the world about the actuality of such events, truth research has now come into it’s own and citizen journalism has replaced official government secrecy. The world is now awakening to the prospects of what might happen if brown dwarf Nibiru once more orbits close to our own world and it’s immense gravity and accompanying debris field let loose a rain of hail, fire and brimstone, just exactly as foretold in the Christian Bible:

According to Matthew 24:29-31, there will be signs in heaven:

“the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from heaven” immediately after the tribulation and before the Day of the Lord. God said, “I will show wonders in the heavens and in the earth… The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the coming of the great and awesome day of the Lord” (Joel 2:30-31).

Emergency preparedness, and “survival preparations” are phrases on the lips of millions.  Millions have now also viewed the contraband video of our military’s secret underground preparations and D.U.M.B. facilities, which you can find posted on the front page of this blog. They are certainly not building such an underground labyrinth as a federal country club. Something is afoot, it is huge, and Russia has also been outed as it builds entire underground cities in preparation for something.

This popular Christian minister from Hawaii [ see video clip below ] is reiterating to his congregation the same message I have been writing for readers and subscribers, and that is that the American federal government is not telling their people the truth about what they really know about the real identity and the anti-Semitic racist, violent and Nazi regime fascist roots of the Muslim Brotherhood.

This minister is asking all the right questions about the odd position our government is now taking, and he is taking note of all the events, which are telling in and of themselves. Read Isaiah 19 for more insight.

Joel 3:19 Egypt shall be a desolation, and Edom shall be a desolate wilderness, for the violence against the children of Judah, because they have shed innocent blood in their land. (20) But Judah shall dwell for ever, and Jerusalem from generation to generation.

Urantia Book and KJV Holy Bible Proved True Again: “Nephilim Giantism Gene” Found in Ireland

7 Jan
The Urantia Book

Our 21st century fascination with the ancient Nephilim giants who were described in the Bible has only intensified over the years, as each new archeological and scientific discovery continues to prove that these huge men and women did exist.

We now know that these Nephilim [ aka Anakim or Annunaki ] giants were, in fact, very literal and very real.

Skeletons have been found in modern times since the late 1800s which are inexplicably enormous, some as large as 15 feet tall, and now scientists have identified a DNA mutation from ancient populations in Northern Ireland that produces giant-ism: people who could grow to a height of 8 feet tall or more.

Is it possible that the mutant gene found in the four northern Ireland families is a left over of a much older Nephilim gene, and that through early human migrations and interbreeding, that this gene emerged again thousands of years later, 1500 years ago, in these four Irish families? The evidence continues to mount that the ancient Anakim, Nephilim “mighty men of old” also referred to as the Annunaki, were very real parts of a prehistoric chapter of the human species which was lost in the deep annals of time, which has also been devoid of any written records until just recently.

We know that the bible has been rewritten and re-edited over and over again since the 325 A.D. Council of Constantinople. We know that the Catholic Bible has several more books than the Protestant, and we know that in the Old Testament there are repeated references to the “Book of Jasper” which has been omitted from the KJV Bible. Men with passions for greater power and control over the human species’ religious life have tinkered with the scriptures incessantly since 325 A. D. and that fact is not in dispute.

Here is just one example: the word “Lucifer” has been omitted in several places in the New International Version Holy Bible, as compared to the KJV Bible. I refuse to read the NIV bible for that reason alone.

I maintain that one of the reasons the Urantia Book Fifth Epochal Revelation of Truth was given to humankind was to make up for the suppression and destruction of the written records of our oldest human origins. There has been a longstanding generational conspiracy within the church itself to keep the truth about our origins from the people of this world. if you doubt this, place a copy of the Urantia Book in front of most any Christian minister or pastor and watch how they react. They have allowed themselves to fear this great revelation of cosmic truth to the point that many actually fear to open the book and look at it’s table of contents. I have had Christian pastors tell me that they refuse to examine any other book which contains records of humankind’s origins other than the KJV bible. This is not intelligent bible scholarship. And pity to these men and women that it will take someone like me to finally present the truthful records to the American people through my blogs, but God has raised me up for this purpose and so I proceed.

Modern religious men and women should not fear to seek for the truth with all diligent earnest prayer and supplication to the Holy Spirit. Please follow my lead and we will get there – together.

And now in these last days, Jesus own words from 2,000 years ago ring true as we learn the truth and are spiritually set free by it.  The Spirit of Truth is literally sweeping across the world, inspiring brilliant men and women of science to converge and re-unify apparently disparate discoveries, comparing those discoveries to ancient accounts in the Holy Bible, the Urantia Book and other ancient holy books to see where they intersect. We are connecting the dots as a human species, by putting the historical, archeological and anthropological discoveries into a greater tapestry of understanding. 

These newly discovered facts now corroborate the biblical Genesis story of the ancient Nephilim giants that resulted from the Annunaki “Gods” mating with mortal women. The Urantia Book’s historical account of giants from the earth’s distant past is also corroborated by this scientific discovery. The entire text of the Urantia Book, which is 2037 pages, is free for humankind to read and study, is in the public domain, and can be found at http://www.urantia.org You may also listen to audio reading of the chapters as well.

My only correction to add to the article below is that modern science and anthropology has yet to fathom how far back in time the original mutation took place. The original genetic mutation would have taken place more than 450,000 years ago. When the Planetary Prince [see KJV bible phrase “Kings and Princes of the Earth“] assigned to Earth [ Urantia ] and his staff arrived on Earth [ Urantia ] 500,000 years ago they constructed the first ever human settlement at the headwaters of the Persian Gulf. This settlement was named Dalamatia. A hybrid human was developed at that time, from combining the primitive human genome with the life plasm {DNA} from several of the Planetary Prince’s staff. This ancient factual event became the fodder for the many legends down through the ages of the “Mighty Men of Old” which are described in the book of Genesis. I strongly suggest truth seekers study a copy of  the King James Version Holy Bible, hand in hand with cited sections of the Urantia Book, which fully corroborate the biblical story of the Nephilim giants, expanding the details therein. The section in the UB which describes the racial blending I have just noted is cited below and it is verbatim.

 

Cited from the Urantia Book’s Paper titled: The Planetary Prince of Urantia [ planet Earth ]:

(742.3) 66:2.3 The planetary staff included a large number of angelic co-operators and a host of other celestial beings assigned to advance the interests and promote the welfare of the human races. But from your standpoint the most interesting group of all were the corporeal members of the Prince’s staff — sometimes referred to as the Caligastia one hundred.

(742.4) 66:2.4 These one hundred rematerialized members of the Prince’s staff were chosen by Caligastia from over 785,000 ascendant citizens of Jerusem who volunteered for embarkation on the Urantia adventure. Each one of the chosen one hundred was from a different planet, and none of them were from Urantia.

(742.5) 66:2.5 These Jerusemite volunteers were brought by seraphic transport direct from the system capital to Urantia, and upon arrival they were held enseraphimed until they could be provided with personality forms of the dual nature of special planetary service, literal bodies consisting of flesh and blood but also attuned to the life circuits of the system.

(742.6) 66:2.6 Sometime before the arrival of these one hundred Jerusem citizens, the two supervising Life Carriers resident on Urantia, having previously perfected their plans, petitioned Jerusem and Edentia for permission to transplant the life plasm of one hundred selected survivors of the Andon and Fonta stock into the material bodies to be projected for the corporeal members of the Prince’s staff. The request was granted on Jerusem and approved on Edentia.

(742.7) 66:2.7 Accordingly, fifty males and fifty females of the Andon and Fonta posterity, representing the survival of the best strains of that unique race, were chosen by the Life Carriers. With one or two exceptions these Andonite contributors to the advancement of the race were strangers to one another. They were assembled from widely separated places by co-ordinated Thought Adjuster direction and seraphic guidance at the threshold of the planetary headquarters of the Prince. Here the one hundred human subjects were given into the hands of the highly skilled volunteer commission from Avalon, who directed the material extraction of a portion of the life plasm of these Andon descendants. This living material was then transferred to the material bodies constructed for the use of the one hundred Jerusemite members of the Prince’s staff. Meantime, these newly arrived citizens of the system capital were held in the sleep of seraphic transport.

(742.8) 66:2.8 These transactions, together with the literal creation of special bodies for the Caligastia one hundred, gave origin to numerous legends, many of which subsequently became confused with the later traditions concerning the planetary installation of Adam and Eve.

(743.1) 66:2.9 The entire transaction of repersonalization, from the time of the arrival of the seraphic transports bearing the one hundred Jerusem volunteers until they became conscious, threefold beings of the realm, consumed exactly ten days.

Standing tall: The 1,500-year-old mutant giant gene that is STILL causing excessive growth in Northern Ireland

Copyright 2011 by  DAILY MAIL REPORTER
Last updated at 11:07 AM on 6th January 2011

A race of giants may have sprung from a mutant gene that first emerged around 1,500 years ago and causes uncontrolled body growth, scientists believe.

The ‘gigantism gene’ was identified in the DNA of an 18th century man known as the Irish Giant who stood almost eight feet tall.

The gene is still causing excessive growth in families in the same area of Northern Ireland where Charles Byrne was born.

Gigantic genes: Brendan Holland (right) observes the skeleton of 'Irish Giant' Charles Byrne, who shares the same mutant geneGigantic genes: Brendan Holland (right) observes the skeleton of ‘Irish Giant’ Charles Byrne, who shares the same mutant gene

He found fame in the 1780s by exhibiting himself as a curiosity or ‘freak’ in London and died aged just 22 after his celebrity saw him develop a drink problem.

Copies of Byrne’s mutation have been found in living patients suffering from gigantism and other symptoms of over-growth.

And scientists writing in the New England Journal of Medicine said they suspect all inherited the gene from the same common ancestor who lived up to 66 generations ago. Around 200 to 300 people may be carrying the same mutation today.

The Irish Giant – also known by his stage name O’Brien – was born in Littlebridge, Northern Ireland, in 1761.

Despite claims that he towered more than eight feet tall, skeletal evidence shows his height to have been just over seven feet seven inches.

After his death Byrne’s body was acquired by the 18th century surgeon John Hunter, and his skeleton remains at the Hunterian Museum at the London headquarters of the Royal College of Surgeons.

British and German scientists conducting the new research extracted DNA from two of the Irish Giant’s teeth.

One feels very small: The Queen observes the skeleton of the 'Irish Giant' in 1962[ photo ] One feels very small: The Queen observes the skeleton of the ‘Irish Giant’ in 1962

They discovered a mutant version of the aryl hydrocarbon-interacting protein gene (AIP) which matched those found in living patients from four Northern Irish families.

The gene variant triggers tumour growth in the pituitary gland at the base of the brain. Among its many functions, the gland releases hormones that regulate growth.

Pituitary tumours can cause tissue to grow abnormally, which may lead to gigantism – as suffered by Byrne – or acromegaly. Symptoms of acromegaly include thickened skin, enlarged hands and feet, distorted facial features, and overgrown organs.

By analysing the DNA, the scientists calculated that all the carriers of the mutant AIP gene had inherited the genetic fault from a common ancestor.

Calculations suggest that the mutation is about 1,500 years old, and between 200 and 300 people may carry it today.

Professor Marta Korbonits, from Barts and the London School of Medicine and Dentistry, who led the research, said: ‘The idea initially looked quite bizarre, but as we gained more data and identified new families affected by the mutation, our findings confirmed our theory.

“The most important clinical aspect of our study is that it is now possible to trace down carriers of this gene in time and treat patients before they grow to be a giant.’

Co-author Professor Mark Thomas, from University College London, said: ‘The striking thing about this research is that with modern genetic techniques we can say so much about somebody who died so long ago and use that information to identify and treat people at risk today.”

The discovery means anyone thought to be at risk can now be screened for the AIP mutation with a blood test, said the scientists.

Nibiru Planet X News Updates 2012 Pole Shift Theories

The abrupt ending of the precise and mathematically perfect Mayan calendar at December 21st 2012 has caused intellectual, historical, and astronomical uproar in modern societies around the world. Add to that, the historical suppression of the truth by religious institutions like the Vatican, the devastating event of the burning of all ancient records at the library of Alexandria, and the contemporary philosophical angst with which humankind lives, and you have the potent ingredients for very high drama pertaining to theories about “the end of the world.” The possibility that reoccurring astronomical events might influence or expedite that ending is the gut of all speculation concerning the return of Planet X aka Nibiru.

The Egyptians apparently knew a great deal about this subject as social scientist Marshall Masters explores in essays about the Kolbrin Bible on http://yowusa.com Their entire civilization was wiped out during a pole shift according to the text of the Kolbrin Bible. It’s worth looking into.

Modern prophecy reiterates again what the Kolbrin Bible warned of hundreds of years before the ancient Hebrews ever compiled the scriptures of the Torah and Holy Bible. Every good American Christian knows the prophecies of the Book of Revelations, and the Bible’s grave warnings concerning the “end of days”.

Few would argue that we are living in the opening moments of that precise time period now. Add to this the biblical legends and translated Sumerian texts of the ancient Annunaki, Nephilim fallen angels, aka the Anakim, and the alleged literal return of their home planet Nibiru every 3600 years, and you have the ingredients for a very potent tale to tell.

What’s nearly comical at this point, [ late 2010 – early 2011 ] is that although our official American mainstream media mostly ignores this topic, excluding the History Channel which has done a good job of tackling the research, just about every man and woman with a thought on the subject and a video camera is now attacking the topic of Nibiru, 2012, the coming pole shift and everything that will accompany it, with full homegrown gusto. Many of the following videos are ragged in technique, but they make up for that with intent of purpose. This page will be updated from time to time with new entries.

And if all of this is not true, and it’s just more or less pop hearsay and modern urban legend, or is merely a fantasy similar to astronomical folklore, then why in the world has the US military, CIA, NSA, FEMA, and the NCS built this elaborate tremendously expensive underground tunnel network, with 50 trillion your US tax dollars which were siphoned off the top illegally, and without your premission, vote or consent?
