Why Men With Dark Intentions Destroyed the Library of Alexandria


Ancient civilizations are a fascinating topic, and it’s clear we have so much to learn from them when it comes to our way of life, our health, our technology, science, nature, consciousness, and the nature of reality itself.

Be it information in the form of written text, or advanced ancient structures like the Kailasa temple, one of 32 cave temples and monasteries located within the Ellora Caves in India, their knowledge — how they acquired it and how they constructed their masterpieces — remains a complete mystery.

With all of our modern day technology, knowledge, and wisdom, there is still no way to accomplish some of the feats of civilizations past, feats that required an extremely advanced understanding of mathematics, physics, and more.

There is evidence that many ancient achievements required an extremely advanced form of technology as well, and many examples to prove these assertions.

Another fascinating point to make is the fact that many groundbreaking discoveries within the realm of quantum mechanics, as well as neuroscience, closely resemble the teachings of several ancient civilizations and native American populations.

This is why today, there are conferences held every single year between academics and spiritual leaders, like Tibetan monks, to discuss how they relate, and books like Blackfoot Physics continue to be published.

Sometimes it seems we are re-learning much of the knowledge kept by the ancient world.

This is exactly why the burning of the library of Alexandria was such a tragedy. It was one of the greatest libraries in human history, holding a vast archive of manuscripts and books from all over the ancient world, and what our ancients would have themselves considered ancient.

It was built after the famous Alexander the Great conquered Egypt and acquired knowledge from all parts of the globe. From East to West, the teachings of multiple civilizations throughout human history up to that time could be found in the great library.

The books contained in this library touched upon every subject that concerns humanity, from health, science, and astronomy to geology, philosophy, mysticism, magic, knowledge of the spiritual world, and much more.

Manly P. Hall describes it as follows in The Secret Teachings of All Ages:

“Prior to the Christian Era seven hundred thousand of the most valuable books, written upon parchment, papyrus, vellum, and was, and also tablets of stone terra cotta, and wood, were gathered from all parts of the ancient world and housed in Alexandria, in buildings specially prepared for the purpose. This magnificent repository of knowledge was destroyed by a series of three fires.”

It was burned down in approximately A.D. 389  by Caesar, from the order of Theodosius I. Also known as Theodosius the Great, he was a Roman Emperor from AD 379 to AD 395, ruling over both the Eastern and the Western halves of the Roman Empire.

Libraries as such were well known to multiple ancient civilizations in Egypt, Mesopotamia, Asia Minor, Syria, and Greece, who were very impressed by Oriental knowledge.

There is literary evidence of Greek individuals visiting Egypt specifically to acquire knowledge: e.g., HerodotusPlato (particularly in Phaedrus and Timaeus), Theophrastus, and Eudoxus of Cnidus (as detailed by Diogenes Laërtius in the 3rd century CE).

According toe H.P. Blavatsky in Isis Unveiled:

“They (the Rabbis of Palestime and the wise men) say that not all the rolls and manuscripts, reported in history to have been burned by Caesar, by the Christian mob, in 389, by the Arab General Amuru, perished as it is commonly believed; and the story they tell is the following.:

“At the time of the contest for the throne, in 51 B.C., between Cleopatra and her brother Dionysius Ptolemy, the Bruckion, which contained over seven hundred thousand rolls all bound in wood and fire-proof parchment, was undergoing repairs and a great portion of the original manuscripts, considered among the most previous, and which were not duplicated, were stored away in the home of one of the librarians.

“Several hours passed between the burning of the fleet, set on fire by Ceasar’s order, and the moment when the first buildings situated near the harbor caught fire in their turn; and *** the librarians, aided by several hundred slaves attached to the museum, succeeded in saving the most previous of the rolls.”

Manly P. Hall writes that the books that were saved were actually buried in Egypt and in India, and until they are discovered, “the modern world must remain in ignorance concerning many great philosophical and mystical truths. The ancient world more clearly understood these missing links – the continuity of the pagan Mysteries in Christianity.”

These pagan mysteries, Hall writes, are the heart of mysticism, which actually represents true Christianity. This makes sense; any civilization, you would assume, would seek out the knowledge and wisdom of those prior. It’s one of many paths to truth, or at least new discoveries that help one in their contemplation of truth.

Hall states:

“There are persistent rumors that Jesus visited and studied in both Greece and India, and that a coin struck in His honor in India during the first century has been discovered. Early Christian records are known to exist in Tibet, and the Monks of a Buddhist monastery in Ceylon still preserve a record which indicates that Jesus sojourned with them and became conversant with their philosophy.

“Although early christianity shows every evidence of Oriental influence, this is a subject the modern church declines to discuss. If it’s ever established beyond question that Jesus was an initiate of the pagan Greek or Asiatic Mysteries, the effect on the more conservative members of the Christian faith is likely to be cataclysmic.”

Information like this, among other topics like life on other planets and sacred and magical (considered mythical by many) information about shamanism, magic, and sorcery, predate modern Christianity.

Different sects of Christianity, after the ancient Romans created their own version, now condemn these teachings even though they were embedded within the original doctrines.

This is one of many reasons the aristocracy of ancient Rome ordered the library destroyed, because it would ruin the foundations of what they were creating — a new religion for man to follow, one whose doctrine contradicted the one prior.

This type of religion was forced upon people, and those who did not follow were subject to death and exile. Anybody who questioned these new doctrines received harsh penalties throughout the ages, especially as time progressed and the expansion of civilization, from that point, moved forward.

“The early Christians used every means possible to conceal the pagan origin of their symbols, doctrines, and rituals. They either destroyed the sacred books of other peoples among whom they settled, or made them inaccessible to students of comparative philosophy, apparently believing that in this way they could stamp out all record of the pre-christian origin of their doctrines. In some cases the writings of various ancient authors were tampered with, passages of a compromising nature being removed or foreign material interpolated.”

Conquering the World

Before the creation of a certain type of Christianity by ancient Rome, truth seemed to be more apparent, but darkness seemed to have permeated the world of light even prior.

Atlantis is a great example, as Plato, among other ancient scholars, told us that the eventual demise of this civilization was brought forth by ego-driven desires that soon developed among them, when the Atlantean kings were “lured” from “the pathway of wisdom and virtue.”

“Filled with false ambition, the rulers of Atlantis determined to conquer the gods into his holy habitation and addressed them. Here Plato’s narrative comes to an abrupt end, for the Critias was never finished.”

“A technologically sophisticated but morally bankrupt evil empire – Atlantis – attempts world domination by force. The only thing standing it its way is a relatively small group of spiritually pure, morally principled and incorruptible people – the ancient Athenians.

“Overcoming overwhelming odds… the Athenians are able to defeat their far more powerful adversary simply through the force of their spirit. Sound familiar? Plato’s Atlantean dialogues are essentially an ancient greek version of ‘Star Wars.’” – Ken Feder, professor of archaeology, taken from his book Frauds, Myths and Mysteries: Science and Pseudoscience in Archaeology

The sacred teachings and artifacts in Atlantis were perverted and used for selfishness by some. These teachings made their way into Egypt, and eventually into ancient Greece, until the Roman Empire dominated the world, burned the library where many of these teachings were probably held, and disseminated their own version of knowledge and truth across the land.

Do some of these books lie within the libraries of the Vatican today? If much of the mythical stories we’ve heard and read about are real, they would indeed bring down the modern day understanding of religion and spirituality that’s been spread by the families of ancient Rome.

Are we looking at a cover-up of knowledge regarding “what is,” and have we been deceived?

The burning of Alexandria’s library was one tragic event involving the destruction of ancient knowledge, similar to the mass Native North American genocide that saw even more knowledge of humanity lost, stolen, and hidden.

This is why examining ancient sources of truth, or whatever is left of it, is always interesting, because it’s hard to receive something that’s been created and used as the backbone of deception — modern day religion.

Note: The Library of Alexandria was said to be burning for 6 months….




Proof that the Human Species Has Been Genetically Engineered by Anunnaki


Lloyd Pye used to say “Everything you know is wrong” and presents evidence about what is really going on with human evolution that mainstream science won’t discuss.

He presents evidence that the human genome was tampered with and he says the best story that explains why modern humans look like the way they do is presented in Zacharia Sitchin’s books.

How modern humans got here is a big mystery and can be explained with the Anunnaki theory according to many researchers.

The best piece of evidence is not ancient archeology of ancient Sumeria or the translations of the cuneiform text but in the human genome itself. If we were modified then the hard evidence has to be in the DNA, end of story, period.

And here’s the deal, we have that evidence, the 2nd human chromosome is fused making the human genome the only primate with 46 Chromosomes (23 pairs) and not 48 like all the other primates (apes and monkeys).

This is not just odd, but Darwinian impossible, how can a random mutation that is so radical become dominant? That is very unlikely, with most mutations the offspring will be less fit and die off.

So to have Chromosome 2 to be a successful mutation is strange. A fused single strand of Chimp 2a and 2b is highly unlikely and this combined with all the other extreme variations from our nearest Ape relatives it becomes highly improbable.

Modern humans are unexplainable by normal science. There is simply no missing links between our nearest relatives that show a steady progression of adaptive features.

Where are the skull changes, the teeth changes, the bone thickness changes, or the huge brain increase changes? No where and they won’t ever find them because they don’t exist.  Think about it, recent hominids should be abundant in the fossil record.

Neanderthals coming and going with no good predecessors is also really weird. So how can we account for Neanderthal DNA in our DNA? We adopt the Anunnaki theory, we solve the mystery by examining what the Sumerians said with the evidence.

What if the Neanderthals were one of the first self replicating robust slaves engineered by the Anunnaki? What if some of them escaped their Mespotamia overlords and went north where we find their remains today?

It is hard to dismiss the Sumerian account because of the evidence. First, the Holy Bible is the most believed holy book on the planet and is considered to be the words of god, billions believe the authenticity of the account.

The story of earth and the rise of humanity as the dominant specie is partially told in the Holy Bible as a watered down and religiously perverted account.

The gods who came down from the heavens became “fallen angels” and “demons” leaving the believer in a paralyzed fear of unknown other worldy agents.

The Holy Bible is a terrible religious propaganda account of human origin, it makes people irritated and prone to do evil because the text confuses the mind with irrational tales of a needy creator god.

The omniscient creator God making bad angels and casting them to this world is demented to say the least.

The Sumerian story of the Anunnaki is the same information – but earlier and more detailed. It is also rational.

No demons, no bad angels cast to earth, but a credible logical story or another race coming here on a military mission. They did fall to earth like angels as they are shown in reliefs with wings.

But they did so voluntarily as astronauts on a mission to earth for gold. They did make the first man Adama in their image – the Sumerian text describes in detail their genetic engineering attempts to create hominid worker slaves by mixing of DNA.

The discovery of older and more detailed Sumerian myth paints an entirely new picture of the creation account, it paints a very clear detailed picture of what happened, not the superstitious fear version of the Jewish holy book.

There needs to be a differentiation, the Anunnaki creators of the human specie are not the same as the original Creator Prime. The Anunnaki were not gods but a competing race in our solar system.

Then we have the DNA evidence, humans are the only primate with 46 chromosomes and the only primate without fur. Lloyd Pie came up with 12 huge differences between us and the apes. The most bothersome one is all the genetic diseases that only humans have.

If Darwinian progress is the path of our origin we wouldn’t have 4,000 unique genetic disorders because they would have been selectively eliminated. Our condition is not the product of Darwinian fitness.

How can the prevalence of human diseases be explained? If we were genetically engineered to be slaves, who were wiped out by the owners periodically, they didn’t care about their mistakes. The story of humans artificially created by Enlil and Enki the Anunnaki overlords as slaves explains much.

It explains humans diseases and human starvation and environment degradation. Humans are not natural, they don’t fit here, they are self destructive with drug use, body abuse, environment abuse.

Humans are the abandoned abominations of the Anuna Lords who came and went back to their damnable planet Nibiru.

So if Neanderthals were the first Anunnaki slave abomination how did we come about?  Well, the Sumerian text tells us exactly what happened, the “gods” lusted after our women and mated with them making a new hybrid, one that is less robust and has more Anunnaki DNA.

The human being is very much in the likeness of the Anunnaki gods but inferior smaller models. We look like Anunnaki but we also have native earth hominid DNA.  We are hybrids of the gods.

Remember that all primates have 48 chromosomes and we 46 (23 pairs). This means the Anunnaki must have 46 chromosomes which is why they modified earth primate DNA to have one pair less.

They changed our DNA to match their DNA and then later they mated with us and created new hybrids. They even created a Royal line, a hybrid with extra genes to be overlords just like them. We call this slave master race abomination “Jews”.

Have you noticed how the chosen ones are obsessed with their mother’s blood?

We also have to explain our water origin.  Have you heard of the Aquatic Ape Theory?

Aquatic Ape Theory:

“It is much harder to explain why we differ from the gorilla and the chimpanzee much more markedly than they differ from one another. Something must have happened to cause one section of the ancestral ape population to proceed along an entirely different evolutionary path.

“The most widely held theory, still taught in schools and universities, is that we are descended from apes which moved out of the forests onto the grasslands of the open savannah. The distinctly human features are thus supposed to be adaptations to a savannah environment.

“In that case, we would expect to find at least some of these adaptations to be paralleled in other savannah mammals. But there is not a single instance of this, not even among species like baboons and vervets, which are descended from forest- dwelling ancestors.”

The Aquatic Ape is a compelling hypothesis but there is a better explanation for the naked ape. We look just like the naked Anunnaki Gods.

They created us in their image by mixing their DNA with ours. One god, our father god (according to the Sumerian myth), Enki was a water god. Thus we have a dead ringer for the origin of water born human traits, the Anunnaki genome:

Annunaki: Creation of Humans

“The Anuna awakened Enki from his subterranean, underwater habitat. He was in what could be described today as a state of suspended animation. Enki and his wife, Ninmah, created humans to be the slaves of the Anuna.”

Click here for a larger chart:


“The texts chronical the Anuna’s genetic experimentations as they engineered the first humans. The texts write about six attempts and how the first five were failures for various reasons ranging from deformities to androgynous life forms.

“Finally, the sixth was successful and insemination was used to produce the first humans from this humanoid creation. Ninmah was the original scientist trying to engineer humans. After her multiple failures she became frustrated and asked Enki to take over the development.

“Each of these genetic failures was kept alive and cared for in the manner it required. This shows the benevolent nature of these advanced beings. Writings later reference the “black headed ones” whom the Anuna ruled.

“This is obviously a reference to early black skinned people who were likely the first mass-procreated creations of the Anuna. The reference to their color implies the Anuna were not black (otherwise, why call out the color?).”

Who are the Anunnaki?

“If one believes Zecharia Sitchin, then they are the beings from a “planet” that has an clockwise rotation around our sun every 3600 years.

When my colleague, Jack O’Brien, asked about their heritage and race one Anunnaki Warrior female responded that:

She said that her race was from the Orion Nebula, and was not a pure race but included Anunnaki, which in turn was a Reptilian race interbred with another.

I reminded her that the Orion Nebula was the remains of a star gone Nova, resulting in an expanding cloud of gas around the star.

She said that they had anticipated this happening and had evacuated their planet long before this occurred.

In The Cosmic Code Sitchin writes:

“There was a time, the Sumerians told, when civilized Man was not yet on Earth, when animals were only wild and undomesticated and crops were not yet cultivated. At that long ago time there arrived on Earth a group of fifty Anunnaki.

“Lead by a leader whose name was E.A. (meaning “Whose home is water”) they journeyed from their home planet NIBIRU (“planet of crossing”) and, reaching Earth, splashed down in the waters of the Persian Gulf… The time: 445,000 years ago.” (p.42)

In the first place they came to obtain gold which they require for survival on their planet which is losing its atmosphere.

A complex mining operation was begun in southeast Africa which later required human hybrid slaves.

Because their planet goes far out into space, these beings are in darkness and misery much of the time; when they approach the sun again they delight in visiting our planet Earth with the feminine essence of the Goddess so vibrant and living upon her.

There is evidence of these visits throughout ancient history, particularly in the Sumerian culture.

When the Anunnaki and their God, Anu, visit our planet they interfere with its natural rhythms and nature.

Since they are of a different origin, which is more advanced and they live for thousands of our years; they have manipulated us by genetic experiments and consider us like guinea pigs, or as slaves for their gold mines.

It is said thousands of our years past, they took the gentle and docile Hominid species we know as Homo Erectus and bred a human hybrid from their own DNA. This explains the famous “missing link.”

Humanity was formed from Anunnaki DNA and Homo Erectus DNA with many horrific mistakes…”

With the Sumerian myth story of our origin we can also explain the human condition. No researcher has yet to correlate the unthinkable human condition with the ancient alien theory. Can we not explain the human condition because of the godly intervention?

Are we not artificial creations and not a product of natural selections? Is not drug abuse rampant and are not some government who are in the know about our true origin, controlling the drug trade?

We are the damned and abandoned specie of the gods. We are not happy campers on this planet. We are unnatural selections of a terrible space faring race who came here and experimented on us as if we were Guinea Pigs.

The sad fact is that we are the left behind abominations of the Anunnaki bastards that created us and then left us to rot. Many of us are like abandoned little puppy dogs hoping for their master to return some day. How many Christians are awaiting rescue when Jesus returns?

On planet earth the abandoned miserable hominids are fighting it out because of their heritage. War, disease, and suffering are the norm on this hell planet. This beautiful water planet has been greatly decreased in beauty because of the Anunnaki abominations called human beings.

We don’t fit here, we are not adapted here, many of us don’t want to be here and so we go to war or use drugs. What we should do about our situation is beyond me, I just find the situation very sad.

Los Anunnaki en la Biblia



    El libro más leído en toda la historia, la Biblia ha empujado la fe de miles de millones de personas y ha dado forma al mundo en el que vivimos.

Pero, ¿y si hubiera algo que no fuera drásticamente claro en la forma en que la gente descifra la Biblia?

Lo que vamos a discutir es el Anunnaki en la Biblia. Estas son partes muy importantes de las Escrituras que a menudo pasan desapercibidas para los lectores, pero arrojan algo de luz sobre un lado diferente de la Biblia y la misma fe en la que creen miles de millones de personas.


Antes de saltar a la escritura misma, intentemos aclarar lo que sabemos sobre quiénes fueron los Anunnaki.

¿Quiénes son los Anunnaki?

Anunnaki es una palabra que se hizo famosa por Zecharia Sitchin.

Encontrado en muchos de sus libros famosos, Sitchin explora la mitología antigua, las estructuras megalíticas de todo el mundo y varios libros para demostrar que una raza extraterrestre visitó el planeta.

Lo interesante es que estos fueron los dioses encontrados en las tabletas sumerias.

Los Anunnaki eran deidades reales y sus nombres provienen del antiguo dios del cielo “Anu”.

Pero cuando profundizas en las tabletas sumerias, empiezas a notar que hay una relación comparativa entre la Biblia y lo que estas culturas antiguas creían.

Cuando comiences a mirar profundamente la Biblia, verás que hay algunas similitudes que a menudo pasan por alto incluso las personas más religiosas. Tales ocurrencias incluyen Giants en la Biblia. Debe leer: ¿Quiénes eran los verdaderos ‘dioses del Edén’?


Tabletas Sumerias

Las tabletas sumerias fueron escritas por los sumerios. Esta era una sociedad que inventó la escritura y tenía un conocimiento avanzado de las matemáticas, la ciencia y la astronomía.

Según estas tablas, los Anunnaki o Anannge eran ángeles.

Estas eran personas que eran tecnológicamente avanzadas y vivían en la Tierra alrededor del año 8200 aC en el Medio Oriente.

Ninill y Enlil estaban en el centro de las historias. Ninill era la diosa que gobernaba la tierra, y Enlil era su esposo. El dios de la guerra, Ninurta, era el hijo de Enlil y Ninlil.

Estos dioses son muy similares a los dioses que sabrías de la antigua Grecia y Roma, y ​​esta es la primera vez que escuchamos sobre el jardín del Edén. Este es el mismo Edén que conocemos de la Biblia.

Dentro de las tabletas sumerias, Ninlil pide al Consejo de los Siete que cree lo que se llama “Edén”.

Este es un jardín celestial. Los Anunnaki también estaban atados a los Vigilantes que se encuentran en el Libro de Enoc. No es sorprendente que los Vigilantes estuvieran a cargo de cuidar el “Edén”.

Relacionado: Dejemos que el hombre haga NUESTRA imagen. ¿Quién es “NOSOTROS” y “NUESTRO”?

El Libro de Enoc

Un libro que es una antigua obra religiosa judía, el Libro de Enoc es la tradición de Enoc, y está estrechamente relacionado con Noé.

Como ya sabes, Noah estaba a cargo de salvar a todos los animales del mundo, y fue su bisabuelo quien escribió el Libro de Enoc.

Al igual que la Biblia, el Libro de Enoc es en realidad una serie de libros diferentes.

Dentro del libro, encontrarás lo siguiente:

El libro de los vigilantes

Libro de parábolas

El libro astronómico

Las visiones de sueño

Las epístolas de Enoc

Esta es una lectura muy importante si quieres profundizar en el texto religioso. Ahora la razón por la que estamos hablando de este libro es debido a:

Los Vigilantes


Perdición de los Ángeles

Los Vigilantes cayeron a la tierra y son nuestra forma de Ángeles que engendraron los Nephilim. Lo que es interesante es que muchos de los nombres encontrados en este texto se correlacionan directamente con la Biblia:




Y aunque el libro no se considera parte de la Biblia, muchos creen que es uno de los textos que sí tiene significado religioso.

Hay muchos libros que no han llegado a la Biblia que tú y yo conocemos hoy. ¿Por qué?

Podría ser que estos textos van en contra de lo que la iglesia nos ha estado diciendo durante siglos.

Lo que hemos visto hasta ahora es que estos dos textos antiguos parecen fundirse perfectamente entre sí. Pero va aún más profundo que eso con los Anunnaki.

La escritura que es de la mayor importancia es [Génesis 5:18]. Dentro de este texto, encontrarás a Enoc que engendró a Matusalén, quien engendró a Lamec, quien engendró a Noé.

Esto está dentro de la Santa Biblia, y se relaciona directamente con los dos textos El Libro de Enoc y las tablas sumerias.

Curiosamente, los Ángeles Caídos Anunnaki se mezclarán con los pueblos indígenas como se establece en El Libro de Enoc.

Gigantes en la Biblia

¿Dónde encajan los gigantes en todo esto? Bueno, los Anunnaki comenzaron a mezclarse con los pueblos indígenas, y esta unión condujo a la raza híbrida que se llamaba Gigantes.

Los Gigantes se pueden encontrar en el Capítulo 7 del Libro de Enoc. La redacción exacta es: “Y las mujeres que concebían dieron a luz gigantes, cuya estatura era cada trescientos codos”.

El Libro de Enoc no es la Biblia, pero la Biblia habla de gigantes.

Encontrarás gigantes en la Biblia King James, y también en Génesis. Génesis 6: 4 dice que:

“Había gigantes en la tierra en aquellos días; y también después de eso, cuando los hijos de Dios vinieron a las hijas de los hombres, y les engendraron hijos, los varones fuertes que eran de la antigüedad, hombres de renombre “.

Pero tenga en cuenta que todo esto ocurrió antes de la gran inundación de la que se sabe que Noé forma parte en la historia bíblica.

Hubo una guerra en el cielo que causó que los Vigilantes se mezclaran con las mujeres en la tierra, lo que eventualmente resultó en el nacimiento de los Gigantes.

También lo encontrará en Deuteronomio [2: 10-11]:

“Los Emims habitaron allí en el pasado, un pueblo grande, y muchos, y altos, como los Anakims; Que también fueron contados gigantes, como los Anakims; pero los moabitas los llaman Emims “.

Tenga en cuenta que esto ocurre después de la gran inundación, lo que significa que estos gigantes deben haber vagado por la tierra incluso después de producirse la inundación.

Hay varias ocurrencias de gigantes en Deuteronomio, que puedes encontrar en Deuteronomio:

2: 20-21


Josué 17: 5 también menciona a los Gigantes en su texto:

“Y Josué les respondió: Si eres un pueblo grande, entonces vete a la tierra de los bosques, y córtalo allí en la tierra de los ferezeos y de los gigantes, si el monte de Ephraim es demasiado estrecho para ti”.

Lo que es muy importante entender es que los Anunnaki no son los creadores del mundo, o la raza humana.

En cambio, estos son ángeles caídos que fueron creados por Dios.

También encontrarás mención de Enki, que es un Dios sumerio que se considera el Señor de la tierra.

Al profundizar en la mitología, también encontrarás que hay gigantes mencionados en muchos textos. Esto no ocurre solo en una parte del mundo.

Se han encontrado menciones de gigantes en todo el mundo, incluidos Roma, India y Egipto.

Prácticamente cada rincón del mundo tiene alguna mención de Gigantes o raza similar que se mezcló con los humanos.

Solo por nombrar algunos, puedes encontrar Giants en lo siguiente:

Mitos nórdicos: Jotunheim, una tierra de gigantes. También se mencionan diferentes tipos de gigantes, como el Jotun y el Iotun. Los gigantes de fuego incluso vivieron en Muspelheim.

Textos hindúes: Curiosamente, los gigantes conocidos como Daityas lucharon contra los dioses porque estaban celosos de sus medio hermanos.

Textos griegos: Dos grandes gigantes llamados Ge y Tar’taros se mencionan en un intento de asaltar el cielo. Se afirma que estos gigantes fueron arrojados a la tierra con la ayuda de Hércules, y yacían enterrados debajo del monte Edna.

No es tan descabellado incluso mirar el mundo de hoy. Hay algunas personas que son excepcionalmente altas. Tenemos personas, como Bates, que medía 7’11 “de altura, e incluso Carlomagno, de quien dicen que medía 8 pies de altura.

Se decía que John Middleton tenía 9’3 “, y la revista británica Strand publicó una foto en 1895 de una tumba que se descubrió en Irlanda con una persona que medía 12’2” de altura. Esta persona que ha tenido un brazo de 4’6 “.

Si bien los restos del gigante solían estar en exhibición en las exposiciones, nadie sabe todavía qué sucedió exactamente con esta prueba de que existían los Gigantes.

Los Anunnaki han dejado algunos indicios de que existían, y el vínculo con los gigantes es uno de los muchos que aún se exploran en la actualidad.

Incluso en nuestra propia Biblia, vemos que hay alguna prueba detrás de los Anunnaki que muchas personas ignoran como un mero mito en sí mismo.

Sabemos que esto es controvertido para que muchos lo lean, pero les pedimos a aquellos con mentes abiertas que consideren las Escrituras con una luz diferente.




The Anunnaki in the Bible



The most widely read book in all of history, the Bible has pushed the faith of billions of people and has shaped the very world that we live in. 

But what if there was something that was not drastically clear in the way that people decipher the Bible.

What we’re going to discuss is the Annunaki in the Bible.

These are very important parts of Scripture that often go overlooked by readers, but shed some light on a different side of the Bible and the very faith that billions of people believe in.

Before we jump into the scripture itself, let’s try to clarify what we know about the who they Annunaki were.

Who Are The Annunaki?

Annunaki is a word that has been made famous by Zecharia Sitchin.

Found within many of his famous books, Sitchin explores ancient mythology, megalithic structures around the world and various books to demonstrate that an extraterrestrial race visited the planet.

What’s interesting is that these were the gods found within the Sumerian tablets.

The Annunaki were actual deities and their names come from the old god of the sky “Anu.”

But when you look deeper into the Sumerian tablets, you start to notice that there is a stark comparative relationship between the Bible and what these ancient cultures believed in.

When you begin to look deep into the Bible, you’ll see that there are some similarities that often go overlooked by even the most religious people.

Such occurrences include Giants in the Bible.

Must-Read: Who Were the Real ‘Gods of Eden’?

Sumerian Tablets

The Sumerian tablets were written by the Sumerians. This was a society that invented writing, and had advanced knowledge of mathematics, science and astronomy.

According to these tablets, the Anunnaki, or Anannge, were angels.

These were people that were technologically advanced and actually lived on earth around 8200 BC in the Middle East.

Ninill and Enlil were at the center of the stories. Ninill was the goddess that ruled over the land, and Enlil was her husband. The God of War, Ninurta, was the son of Enlil and Ninlil.

These gods are very similar to the gods that you would know from ancient Greece and Rome, and this is the first time that we hear about the garden of Eden. This is the same Eden that we know from the Bible.

Within the Sumerian tablets, Ninlil asks the Council of seven to create what is called “Eden.” This is a heavenly garden.

The Annunaki were also tied to the Watchers which are found in the Book of Enoch. Not surprisingly, the Watchers were in charge of watching over “Eden.”

The Book of Enoch

A book that is an ancient Jewish religious work, the Book of Enoch is the tradition of Enoch, and is closely tied to Noah.

As you already know, Noah was in charge of saving all the world’s animals, and it was his great-grandfather who wrote the Book of Enoch.

Much like the Bible, the Book of Enoch is really a series of different books.

Inside of the book, you’ll find the following:

  • The Book of Watchers
  • Book of Parables
  • The Astronomical Book
  • The Dream Visions
  • The Epistles of Enoch

This is a very important read if you want to delve deeper into religious text. Now the reason that we’re talking about this book is because of:

  • The Watchers
  • Nephilim
  • Bane of Angels

The Watchers fell to earth and are our form of Angels who fathered the Nephilim. What is interesting is that many of the names found within this text correlate directly to the Bible:

  • Azazel
  • Raphael
  • Gabriel

And while the book is not considered part of the Bible, many believe that it is one of the texts that does hold religious significance.

There are many such books to have not made it into the Bible that you and I know today. Why?

It could be that these texts go against what the church has been telling us for centuries.

What we’ve seen so far is that these two ancient texts seem to meld into each other perfectly. But it goes even deeper than that with the Annunaki.

The scripture that is of the main importance is [Genesis 5:18]. Within this text, you’ll find Enoch who fathered Methuselah, who fathered Lamech, who fathered Noah.

This is within the holy Bible, and directly correlates with the two texts The Book of Enoch and the Sumerian tablets.

Interestingly, the Annunaki Fallen Angels would mix with indigenous people as stated within The Book of Enoch.

Giants in the Bible

Where do Giants fit into all of this? Well, the Annunaki began to mingle with the indigenous people, and this union led to the hybrid race that were called Giants.

The Giants can be found in Chapter 7 of the Book of Enoch. The exact wording is: “And the women conceiving brought forth giants, whose stature was each three hundred cubits.”

The Book of Enoch is not the Bible, but the Bible does talk about Giants.

You’ll find Giants in the King James Bible, and also within Genesis. Genesis 6:4 states that:

“There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.”

But keep in mind that this all occurred before the great flood that Noah is known to be a part of in biblical history.

There was a war in heaven that caused the Watchers to mingle with the women on earth that eventually resulted in the Giants being born.

You’ll also find that in Deuteronomy [2:10-11]:

“The Emims dwelt therein in times past, a people great, and many, and tall, as the Anakims; Which also were accounted giants, as the Anakims; but the Moabites call them Emims.”

Keep in mind that this occurs after the great flood, meaning that these giants must have roamed the earth even after the flood occurred.

There are several occurrences of Giants in Deuteronomy, which you can find in Deuteronomy:

  • 2:20-21
  • 3:11

Joshua 17:5 also mentions Giants in its text:

“And Joshua answered them, If thou be a great people, then get thee up to the wood country, and cut down for thyself there in the land of the Perizzites and of the giants, if mount Ephraim be too narrow for thee.”

What is very important to understand is that the Annunaki are not the creators of the world, or the human race.

Instead, these are fallen angels that were created by God. You’ll also find mention of Enki, which is a Sumerian God who is considered the Lord of the earth.

Looking deeper into mythology, you’ll also find that there are giants mentioned in many texts. This doesn’t just occur in one part of the world.

Mentions of giants have been found all throughout the world, including Rome, India and Egypt. Virtually every corner of the world has some mention of Giants or similar race that co-mingled with humans.

Just to name a few, you can find Giants in the following:

Norse Myths: Jotunheim, a land of Giants. Different types of Giants are also mentioned, such as the Jotun and Iotun. Fire giants even lived in Muspelheim.

Hindu Texts: Interestingly, the Giants known as Daityas fought against the gods because they were jealous of their half-brothers.

Greek Texts: Two great giants named Ge and Tar’taros are mentioned in an attempt to storm heaven. It is stated that these giants were thrown to earth with the help of Hercules, and lay buried underneath Mount Edna.

It’s not so far-fetched even looking at today’s world. There are some people that are exceptionally tall. We have people, such as Bates, that stood 7’11” tall, and even Charlemagne, whom they say was 8 feet tall.

John Middleton was said to stand 9’3”, and the British Strand magazine posted a photo in 1895 of a grave that was uncovered in Ireland with a person that stood 12’2” tall. This person who have had an arm span of 4’6”.

While the giant’s remains used to be on display in exhibitions, no one yet knows what exactly happened to this proof that Giants existed.

The Annunaki have left some strands of evidence that they existed, and the link to giants is one of the many that are still explored today.

Even in our own Bible, we see that there is some proof behind the Annunaki that many people shrug off as a mere myth itself.

We know this is controversial for many to read, but we are asking those with open minds to consider the scriptures in a different light.


Was the Heretic Pharaoh Akhenaton in Fact the Father of Modern Monotheism?


                                               How plentiful it is, what you have made,

Although they are hidden from view,

Sole god, without another beside you;

You created the earth as you wished,

When you were by yourself,

Mankind, all cattle and kine,

All beings on land, who fare upon their feet,

And all beings in the air who fly with their wings.

This passage may read like a passage from the Old Testament of the Bible; but, this is a quote from the Hymn of Aten, a work by Pharaoh Amenhotep IV better known as Akhenaton. This so-called heretic king was the only known Pharaoh in Egyptian history who believed in a monotheistic doctrine when most of the ancient world adhered to polytheism.

Just how did this Pharaoh start to form the practice of worshiping a single god?

Religion in Egypt Before the Sun God Aten

Religion seemed to dominate every aspect of ancient Egyptian culture.  Before pharaonic times, there were a variety of deities worshiped in various districts throughout Egypt.  It wasn’t until the First Dynastic Period under King Narmer that the country was unified.  Religion too was unified, but there wasn’t an official canonization of gods that minimized or eliminated the importance of lesser gods.   Instead, deities were cosmopolitan – all of the gods of Egypt were recognized as an important part of the pantheon.  This created some confusion and some overlap in beliefs but still no hegemony of deities seemed to exist in ancient Egypt.

This codification of religion brought a substantial change in kingship.  The birth of the concept of a Pharaoh emerged in which the king was no longer just a civil ruler but a part of the divinity – the godhead to be precise.  The new god-king ruled in conjunction with Ra, or Amen-Ra, and he was often depicted as a powerful man with a falcon head nested upon his head with cobra surrounding the sun.

With this uncontested rule of the god-king came another important change.  The role of the priests became much stronger and more dominant.  Unlike today’s priests, they weren’t charged with guiding the masses.  Instead, they were the keepers of tradition and played an integral part in appeasing the gods and goddesses through rituals and sacrifice.   During the 18th dynasty, there was a temple created in Amen-Ra’s honor and Thebes became the city representing a unified Egypt, after a brief takeover by the Hyksos.  The Pharaohs of this era paid homage to this god by incorporating the name Amen in their names, hence Amenhotep.

The Sun-Disk Pharaoh Emerges

By the time Amenhotep IV took the throne, pharaonic Egypt was in full swing.  Rituals and traditions of the priests had been set in stone for many generations.  Pharaohs simply assumed authority and let the priests do all the work while they enjoyed the finer things.  This didn’t sit well with Amenhotep IV, however.  Unlike his predecessors or even his successors, he was unhappy with tradition and was especially disgusted with the power of the priesthood.  Whether Amenhotep IV unhappiness was due to him being fed up with Egyptian decadence or him being tired of the priests control over the Pharaohs is uncertain.  But one thing for sure is that after five years of his reign he set out to turn Egyptian religious practices upside down and because of his divine authority, no one could stop

One of the first things he did was abandon the name Amen-, a name associated with a god he now despised – and changed his name to Akhenaten.  Aten was the name of the sun disk god he now embraced as the only god.  He then moved the capital from Thebes to Amarna.  Most likely this move represented a break from the old and freedom from the authority of the priesthood.  He then employed agents who outlawed the worship of other deities and forced the people to recognize only one god.  To ensure that the people would follow his orders, he closed the Temple of Amun and defaced all of the deities in the temple.

Life After Aten

Akhenaten’s religious fervor was undoubtedly strong during his lifetime and his cronies supported his desire to spread the power and influence of the Aten religion.  Unfortunately, upon his death, the religion of Aten faded as swiftly as it had come.  Akhenaten’s reign became a historical mockery.  Even depictions of him seemed to mock his figure – oval eyes, high cheekbones, pot belly, frail build.  Artisans and historians alike worked to minimize Akhenaten’s significance, not by writing him out of history or art; but making him look like a madman with unusual laws and an unusual appearance.  The power of Egypt was restored to Thebes, the priesthood was reestablished, and even Akhenaten’s son defied his father’s teachings and reembraced the religion of Amun.

Could Akhenaton be Moses?

Akhenaten certainly seemed like a religious zealot devoted to a single god.  Perhaps his passions were divinely inspired or maybe they centered on a more worldly aim of absolute power and control free of the priesthood’s influence.  One man seems to imply that Akhenaten’s motives stemmed from the fact that he was Moses himself – the man depicted in the old testament of the Bible.  Ahmed Osman – author of Moses and Akhenaton: The Secret History of Egypt at the Time of the Exodus – is convinced that archaeological and Biblical evidence prove that Akhenaten and Moses were the same man.

Interview with Expert Ahmed Osman on the Moses–Akhenaton Debate

Mel Childs: Why do you think that Akhenaton was Moses?

Ahmed Osman: The reason for me to conclude that King Akhenaten of the Egyptian 18th Dynasty

was the same person as Biblical Moses, as well as both of them have introduced the

first monotheistic belief, they lived in Egypt at the very same time.

MC:  It is implied that Moses of the Bible had a conflict with Pharaoh Ramses; however, history doesn’t account for Akhenaton having any issues with any other Pharaohs.  How do you explain this?

AO: The Pharaoh at the time of Moses is not mentioned by name in the Bible.

However, the name Ramses is mentioned as the city the Israelites had to build

for Pharaoh.

I believe that Akhenaten was forced to abdicate his throne for his son, Tutankhamun,

and live in Sinai in exile. When all the kings of the 18th Dynasty died, General Ramses,

who established the 19th Dynasty, was challenged by Akhenaten, who came back from exile,

demanding his throne.

When he lost his throne, Akhenaten also lost his name and became known as Moses.

This indicates in Egyptian the son or heir.

MC:  Do you think that Akhenaton’s monotheism influenced later forms of monotheism that emerged?

AO:  Akhenaten’s monotheism, not only influenced other religious beliefs, but also philosophy.

As ancient Egyptians believed that humans have physical and spiritual dimensions,

Akhenaten was the first person to recognize the cosmos also has a spiritual dimension.

¿Hay una explicación natural para las edades antinaturales en el Génesis?

The-Unnatural-Ages-in-GenesisPor Nils Ekblad

¿Hay algún significado para las edades desconcertantes de los patriarcas antediluvianos en el capítulo quinto de Génesis? ¿Y por qué estos números difieren entre el texto masorético y la Septuaginta?  

Estas preguntas ocuparon al novelista sueco del siglo XIX, periodista, erudito y miembro posterior del parlamento, Viktor Rydberg durante los últimos 1860s.

En 1869, había encontrado respuestas a estas preguntas que se publicaban en sueco. Las ideas de Rydberg atrajeron el interés de Samuel Birch del British Museum y un artículo fue publicado en inglés unos años más tarde en Transactions of the Society of Biblical Archaeology (1877: vol. V) bajo el título “Key to the genealogical table of Los primeros patriarcas en Génesis “.

Desde entonces, el papel se ha dejado casi inadvertido.

Tesis de Rydberg

El periódico sugiere que una tabla astronómica se esconde tras los números de los patriarcas. Esa tabla incluye las figuras centrales a la astronomía de la época y específicamente crucial al calendario lunisolar hebreo arcaico.

A pesar de lo plausible que fuera la solución, permaneció bastante especulativa con poca fuente de material para apoyarla. Más tarde hallazgos arqueológicos, sin embargo, como la Lista del Rey Sumerio y los Rollos del Mar Muerto, parece ofrecer cierto apoyo a la tesis de Rydberg.

Exhibido en el museo de Ashmolean, Oxford. (CC BY SA 4.0) Esta es una pieza de evidencia que parece ofrecer apoyo a la tesis de Rydberg.

Echemos un vistazo más de cerca. Comparando los linajes en Génesis 4 y 5, Rydberg asumió que compartían un documento fuente común, que él se propuso reconstruir. Creía que Seth, en lugar de Elohim, había sido la divinidad en el documento original. Dado que los nombres de Adán y Enosh tiene el mismo significado, calculó que uno de ellos fue añadido más tarde. Por lo tanto, Seth y Enosh no fueron incluidos en la reconstrucción. Terminó con una lista de ocho patriarcas antediluvianos.

En Génesis 5, tres números están conectados a cada patriarca. Su edad en el nacimiento de su primer hijo, los años restantes de su vida, y su edad en la muerte. La edad de Enoc siendo 365 ha sido tomada como una indirecta hacia una interpretación astronómica. Arreglar estos números en columnas y sumarlos juntos confirmó la sugerencia astronómica. La primera columna dio el número 1461, también conocido como el ciclo de Sothis – el número de años entre dos levantamientos heliacales de la estrella Sirius en la misma fecha del año solar. Esto implicaría que el diluvio sucedió exactamente un período Sothis después de la creación del hombre.


“El diluvio” (1834) de John Martin. ( Dominio publico )

La segunda columna arrojó el número 4947. Ese número resulta ser el número de años lunares equivalente a 4800 años solares. En 600 años, este ciclo diverge con menos de un día, si se observa un día intercalado cada 50 años. Esto encaja perfectamente con los llamados jubileos descritos en Levítico (25: 8-13).

Estos dos números exactos que se producen cuando las edades de los patriarcas se suman juntos difícilmente pueden ser explicados como mera coincidencia.

Evidencia de apoyo

Además, la desintegración de la Lista del Rey Sumerio proporciona una posible explicación de por qué el texto masorético tiene diez patriarcas en lugar de ocho.

También es bien sabido desde el hallazgo de los pergaminos del Mar Muerto en los años 40 que el calendario era un tema candente para el movimiento que se refugió en Qumran por el Mar Muerto. Cuando se estableció la comunidad de Qumrán, el templo de Jerusalén había adoptado varias costumbres griegas, entre ellas el más conveniente ciclo metónico de 19 años para hacer calendarios.


Dos rollos de los Rollos del Mar Muerto se encuentran en su ubicación en las cuevas de Qumran antes de ser retirados para el examen académico por los arqueólogos. ( Dominio publico )

Además, comparando el texto masorético con el de la Septuaginta, Rydberg notó algunas diferencias importantes. Aunque las edades completas de los patriarcas son las mismas (excepto Lamec), sus edades al nacimiento de sus primeros hijos (y por lo tanto el resto de sus vidas) difieren considerablemente. En el momento de la primera traducción griega de la Torá, el significado astronómico puede muy bien haber quedado obsoleto a favor del calendario lunisolar griego. Sin embargo, el linaje sirvió a un propósito como un documento pseudo-histórico atando sucesos posteriores con la creación del mundo.

Rydberg argumentó que el texto masorético se basaba en documentos babilonios para este propósito.

La Septuaginta, por otra parte, fue corregida para armonizar con los documentos históricos de los egipcios, muy probablemente la Aegyptiaca de Manetho. Al comparar los linajes de los patriarcas después del diluvio en la Septuaginta, parecen coincidir con las listas de reyes de los egipcios hasta la época de la dinastía número 30. El tiempo de las primeras once dinastías de Egipto se suma a un período de 2262 años, y también lo hacen los números de los Setenta de los patriarcas antes de la inundación

(Dominio Público) Enoc fue el séptimo de los diez Patriarcas previos al diluvio.

Del mismo modo, el tiempo desde el diluvio hasta el éxodo asciende a 1777 años en la Septuaginta, que coincide con el tiempo de la duodécima dinastía hasta el faraón Tutmosis. Y finalmente, el tiempo desde el éxodo hasta el final de la dinastía 30 es 1117 años tanto en la Septuaginta como en los fragmentos existentes de Aegyptiaca.

En resumen, el artículo de Rydberg sugiere que los números en Génesis 5 eran originalmente una tabla astronómica, pero cuando los calendarios griegos hicieron los calendarios del jubileo obsoletos estos números fueron utilizados para reconciliar las historias de los hebreos con los babilonios en el texto masorético, y con los egipcios En la Septuaginta.


Is There a Natural Explanation For The Unnatural Ages in Genesis?


By Nils Ekblad

Is there any significance to the puzzling ages of the antediluvian patriarchs in the fifth chapter of Genesis? And why do these numbers differ between the Masoretic text and the Septuagint?


These questions occupied the Swedish 19th century novelist, journalist, scholar and later member of parliament, Viktor Rydberg during the late 1860s.

In 1869, he had come up with answers to these questions that were published in Swedish. The ideas of Rydberg caught the interest of Samuel Birch of the British Museum and a paper was published in English a few years later in Transactions of the Society of Biblical Archaeology (1877:vol.V) under the title “ Key to the genealogical table of the first patriarchs in Genesis ”.

Since then, the paper has been left largely unnoticed.

Rydberg’s Thesis

The paper suggests that an astronomical table is hiding behind the numbers of the patriarchs. That table includes figures central to the astronomy of the time and specifically crucial to the archaic Hebrew lunisolar calendar.

However plausible the solution was, it remained quite speculative with little source material to support it. Later archaeological findings however, like the Sumerian King List and the Dead Sea Scrolls, seems to offer some support to Rydberg’s thesis.

Displayed at Ashmolean Museum, Oxford.  (CC BY SA 4.0 ) This is one piece of evidence which seems to offer support for Rydberg’s thesis.

Let´s take a closer look at it. Comparing the lineages in Genesis 4 and 5, Rydberg assumed they shared a common source document, which he set out to reconstruct. He believed Seth, rather than Elohim, had been the divinity in the original document. Since the names Adam and Enosh has the same meaning, he figured one of them was added later. Seth and Enosh were therefore not included in the reconstruction. He ended up with a list of eight antediluvian patriarchs.

In Genesis 5 three numbers are connected to each patriarch. Their age at the birth of their first son, the remaining years of their life, and their age at death. The age of Enoch being 365 has been taken as a hint towards an astronomical interpretation. Arranging these numbers in columns and adding them together confirmed the astronomical hint. The first column gave the number 1461, otherwise known as the Sothis-cycle – the number of years between two heliacal risings of the star Sirius on the same date of the solar year. This would imply that the deluge happened exactly a Sothis-period after the creation of man.


‘The Deluge’ (1834) by John Martin. ( Public Domain )

The second column yielded the number 4947. That number happens to be the number of lunar years equivalent to 4800 solar years. In 600 years, this cycle diverges with less than a day, if an intercalary day is observed every 50th year. This fits perfectly with the so-called jubilees described in Leviticus (25:8–13).

These two exact numbers occurring when the ages of the patriarchs are added together can hardly be explained away as mere coincidences.

Supporting Evidence

Furthermore, the unearthing of the Sumerian King List provides a possible explanation to why the Masoretic text has ten patriarchs rather than eight.

Also, it is well known since the finding of the Dead Sea scrolls in the 1940s that the calendar was a burning issue for the movement that took refuge in Qumran by the Dead Sea. By the time the Qumran Community was established, the temple in Jerusalem had adopted several Greek customs, among them the more convenient metonic 19-year cycle for making calendars.

Moreover, comparing the Masoretic text with that of the Septuagint, Rydberg noticed some important differences. Although the full ages of the patriarchs are the same (except for Lamech), their ages at the birth of their first sons (and hence the remainder of their lives) differ considerably. By the time of the first Greek translation of the Torah, the astronomical significance may very well have become out of date in favor of the Greek lunisolar calendar. However, the lineage did serve a purpose as a pseudo-historical document tying together later events with the creation of the world.

Rydberg argued that the Masoretic text was based on Babylonian documents for exactly this purpose.

The Septuagint, on the other hand, was corrected to harmonize with the historical documents of the Egyptians, most probably Manetho’s Aegyptiaca. When comparing lineages of the patriarchs after the flood in the Septuagint, they seem to match the king lists of the Egyptians up to the time of the 30th dynasty.

The time of the first eleven dynasties of Egypt adds up to a period of 2262 years, and so do the Septuagint numbers of the patriarchs before the flood




Genesis 5:24: “And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him.” (KJV) illustration from the 1728 ‘Figures de la Bible’; illustrated by Gerard Hoet (1648–1733) and others, and published by P. de Hondt in The Hague; image courtesy Bizzell Bible Collection, University of Oklahoma Libraries. ( Public Domain ) Enoch was the seventh of the ten pre-Deluge Patriarchs.

Likewise, the time from the flood to the Exodus amounts to 1777 years in the Septuagint, which matches the time from the twelfth dynasty up until Pharaoh Tutmosis. And finally, the time from the Exodus to the end of the 30th dynasty is 1117 years in both the Septuagint and the extant fragments of Aegyptiaca.

In sum, Rydberg’s paper suggests that the numbers in Genesis 5 were originally an astronomical table, but when Greek calendars made the jubilee calendars obsolete these numbers were used to reconcile the histories of the Hebrews with the Babylonians in the Masoretic text, and with the Egyptians in the Septuagint.
