At what point does a series of inter-relating facts go from being just a ‘coincidence,’ to being evidence of a ‘design’?
Maybe, it is when ancient history, Biblical prophecy and theology, occult history and philosophy, tribal migration, astrology, mythology, geography, and military strategy all converge in a meaningful and cohesive way.
When I was a child I loved to lie down on the grass on my back and look up at the clouds. I would always find characters faces of all kinds, that would come and go as the clouds passed overhead. It is a well known fact that the human brain is wired in such a way that we can easily find faces within random patterns. But what if one was to find a series of patterns on the earth, visible only from the air, and all forming images directly related to the history of that exact same area?
An Unexpected Discovery
The inspiration to look for meaningful shapes found in satellite images came while I was researching into the Biblical accounts of the Nephilim. The date was the 22nd November 2012 when I turned on my computer and went on Google Earth. I was looking at Gilgal Refa’im (the Wheel of Giants), a pattern in the landscape, often compared to Stone Henge, but made from piles of much smaller stone.
This monument, also only fully appreciated from the air, is believed to have been made by the Raphaim, the descendent of the Nephilim. As I scanned the area of the Golan Heights I found what looked like many ancient Earthworks in this small region.
I continued to scan my way directly north to Mount Hermon. It was then that I saw the images that set me on an investigation that continues to this day. At the foothills of the southern tip of Mount Hermon, squeezed between the boarders of Lebanon, Syria and Israel, I found a mountain formation in the shape of a right hand. It depicted a hand being held out level with it’s fingers pointing directly west. Above the hand, I found what looks like a geoglyph of a cow or a bull, and to the left of that I found what could either be a depiction of the chimera Pagan god Pan, or a Ram, depending on how you look at it. Positioning the Sun in Google Earth to sunrise in the East, these images were most visible. At the time of this discovery, I had no idea that there might actually be a connection between the rising Sun and these images formed by the mountain shapes.
Being interested in archaeology, ancient history, theology, and psychology – but officially qualified in non of these subjects – I wanted to see if there was anything more to this find of mine, or whether it was just a random set of natural patterns in the landscape. But the more I researched into it, the more I realized that I might have hit upon something significant. At the time I had no idea that this investigation would last longer than a couple of evenings. I decided that I was going to make a quick blog post about my curious findings. But the more I looked, the more I found. I now had enough information to put my video production skills into use and make a quick video of it instead. But what started out as a 30 second video, just kept on growing as I found out more.
Not having the finances available to make a full length documentary, I decided to make the above motion graphic short documentary film that covers my basic findings. After much deliberation, I decided to make the video freely available online, accompany by this series of articles, posted regularly to my website over a period of weeks. These articles will expand upon the details covered in my short documentary film, as well as cover my latest findings since having completed it. If funding becomes available, then I would like to make this into a full length film.
Every hunch I followed led me to more pieces of this growing jigsaw puzzle. And as the pieces of the puzzle took shape, I naturally began to form my own hypothesis, as expressed in the video and in these articles. But as well as expressing my own thoughts, the reason for putting this information out there, is to also leave it to both the experts and the lay persons alike to decided for themselves what this is. I like to let the chips fall where they may, as truth has a very good habit of standing up for itself.
Since I began the project two years ago, there have been a number of significant archaeological discoveries in this region, published in the international press, that I believe directly relate to my findings. Also, since I began this project, the geopolitical situation has dramatically developed in and around the region central to this project. And perhaps more to the point, these developments could end up proving some or all of my conclusions to be correct.
About the region
The Golan Heights region was captured from neighbouring Syria during the 6 day war in 1967. A brief history of the region is concisely summarized in this quote on Wikipedia (web link to original sources found at bottom of Wikipedia article) :
“The earliest evidence of human habitation dates to the Upper Paleolithic period. According to the Bible, an Amorite Kingdom in Bashan was conquered by Israelites during the reign of King Og. Throughout the Old Testament period, the Golan was “the focus of a power struggle between the Kings of Israel and the Aramaeans who were based near modern-day Damascus.”.The Itureans, an Arab or Aramaic people, settled there in the 2nd century BCE and remained until the end of the Byzantine period. Organized Jewish settlement in the region came to an end in 636 CE when it was conquered by Arabs under Umar ibn al-Khattāb In the 16th century, the Golan was conquered by the Ottoman Empire and was part of the Vilayet of Damascus until it was transferred to French control in 1918. When the mandate terminated in 1946, it became part of the newly independent Syrian Arab Republic.
Internationally recognized as Syrian territory, the Golan Heights has been occupied and administered by Israel since 1967.”
There is a settlement named ‘Nimrod’, 3.3km (1.8 miles) to the east of Nimrods Fortress. It was originally named and established by the Israeli Paramilitary on 31st January 1982 and used as an outpost. In 1999 it became an Israeli civilian settlement, despite the International Law classifying it as an illegal settlement.
It is hard to believe that such a vast volcanic basalt mountain area – reaching up to about 200m high – could have been created or had their shapes manipulated at a later date by something other than the Earth’s natural forces. Without geological and archaeological investigation I can not prove such a claim. If it were made by some force beyond our known natural forces, then it would probably be impossible to prove anyhow. If you take the Bible to be true, then you probably already believe that God created the mountains and stars by supernaturally manipulating natural forces. Yet science is currently unable to prove it. Having this world view only makes these geoglyphs in the Golan Heights all the more amazing, especially if you believe that “there is no such thing as coincidence”. Could the creator God have deliberately made these mountains these shapes in order for us to discover at this moment in history?
There are other Biblical based theories as to how these mountain shapes could have been created or manipulated. One theory is that they could have been built by an ancient civilization that the Bible actually says once dwelt here; namely, the Raphaim. They were the descendants of the Nephilim. In Genesis 14:5 we read:
“In the fourteenth year, Chedorlaomer and the kings with him came and defeated the Rephaim in Ashteroth-karnaim, the Zuzites in Ham, the Emites in Shaveh-kiriathaim,”. “
“and Og king of Bashan, one of the remnant of the Rephaim, who lived at Ashtaroth and at Edrei”.
The regions mentioned here in Joshua once stretched from Mount Hermon itself to about 50km (30 miles) south. And as mentioned, the Raphaim are also known to have built other existing Earthworks in this same area.
A First of Its Kind?
Just as Adam was the first of all humans that God created, Nimrod the grandson of Noah, was the first Nephilim that the fallen angels created (Genesis 10:8). Being the first generation of offspring of both a fallen angel and human woman, he would have had knowledge from a source beyond human civilization, as well as having intelligence, strength and stature beyond natural human ability, the first ‘demigod’. There are countless stories from cultures from all around the world that back up the Bible’s claims of ‘giants’ inhabiting the globe, and spreading their knowledge and practices. To this day, hidden within the very structures themselves, there are many ancient architectural sites and earthworks all over the planet that exhibits undeniable, shared knowledge of incredibly accurate dimensions, that correspond precisely to the dimensions of the Earth, Sun, Moon, and stars and their relation to one another; as well as detailed knowledge about the star constellations. These structures defy Western civilizations official story of the history of humanities understanding of mathematics, engineering and astronomy. Some of the most well known of these ancient structures are The Pyramids of Giza, and the pyramids in Chichen Itza and Teotihuacan, Mexico. There are also many other pyramids in places as diverse as China, Cambodia, Algeria, Sardinia and Sicily. The largest – and by far the most controversial at the time of writing – are the mountain sized pyramids in Vosoko, Bosnia, reaching 220 meters in height. This is roughly the same height as the geoglyphs I have found in the foothills of Mount Hermon.
Very closely related to the pyramids are the enormous stone Ziggurats (The Sialk ziggurat in Kashan, and the Chogha Zanbil ziggurat in west Iran) which, as far as we know, pre-date the pyramids. In his book ‘Sumer and the Sumerians’, Harriet Crawford states that the first Ziggurats were built as far back as the Dynastic Period, around 2900 BC.
‘Earthworks’ is a broad term used to classify many types of ancient constructions made from mud and stones. There are few clues left for us to work out what they were made for, and who originally built and used them. But we do know that in the 1800’s large numbers of unusually tall human skeletons – often 9 feet tall – were found buried under them. Discoveries of ancient and extraordinary large skeletons are still being found around the world to this day, and in association with these ancient monuments.
Types of Earthworks include; hillforts, henges, mounds, platform mounds, effigy mounds (ie; the Serpent Mound in Ohio), enclosures, long barrows, round barrows, tumuli and others. In this list of categorization, the Hand, Bull, and Pan/Ram geoglyphs would be most associated with the effigy mounds. If local tradition is correct, The Hand geoglyph may also have once originally been a hill-fort long before the construction of the existing version of ‘Nimrod’s Fortress’.
Earth ‘mounds’ are the most closely related earthworks to ziggurats and pyramids. One example is the largest earth mound in Europe; Silbury Hill, in Wiltshire. It cone shape also resembles a pyramid. It also shares the feature of a flat top as found on ziggurats and many pyramids. Silbury Hill is a mysterious ancient earth mound of unknown origin, reaching to a height of 39.6 meters (130ft). Archaeologists say that it most likely dates back to the Neolithic period.
Another example of an earth mound is Monks Mound, located near Collinsville, Illinois, USA. It is a rectangular earth pyramid. It also has the familiar levelled off platform at the top. Its base covers about the same area at the Great Pyramid of Giza, and stands at about 30m (100 ft) high. This mound is said to have been made between 900 – 950 A.D. by the Mississippian mound-building Native Americans. This is one of many earth mounds that were created by Native Americans across the country. But there is evidence to suggest that the Native Americans were not the only ones creating the Earthworks, and in fact may have been emulating previously existing Earthworks. If you have watched my Hidden Giant video, will already know of another significant connection between the Native Americans and the Geoglyphs in the Golan Heights. I will return this subject in part 2 of this article, when covering my findings about the Hand Geoglyph in detail.
Throughout the world there are stone circles such as Avebury Ring, and the most famous of all is Stone Henge. Both are located in Wiltshire, England. According to the late great David Flynn in his book ‘Temple at the Center of Time’, he was able to mathematically and geographically demonstrate a direct correlation between these sites and the Foundation stone at the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. It is clear that something of great importance was going on, on a global scale in ‘pre-history’ and ‘pre-scientific’ times, that is directly linked to the Biblical Scriptures.
The Golan Heights region hosts many ancient stone monuments of unknown purpose, that lead back to the the Nephilim and their descendants. Only 39 km (21 nautical miles) south from the set of geoglyph I found is ‘Gilgal Refa’im’ (Wheel of Giants), also named ‘Rujm el-Hiri’. This pre- Mesopotamian and pre-Egyptian circle resembles the formation of Stone Henge with its concentric rings of stone. The ‘Wheel’ and the markings in the surrounding ground seem to be orientated in a direction towards the Golan Heights Geoglyphs. Directly along the path between the Wheel and Pans Grotto are other earthworks. This is also the case with tumuli and other earthworks along lay-lines leading to Stone Henge.
Most of these ancient structures evade a unanimous official explanation from the experts as to the purpose of these demonstrations of engineering and knowledge. But the same theories persist. Most commonly suggested is that they were used as astrological calendars to observe the cycles of the Sun, Moon stars, and other astrological events such as eclipses and equinoxes. This theory has to be at least partly true, as – taking into account the shifting of the star positions over time – the sites still function for this purpose to this day. Another good theory is that they were sacrificial religious sites, with ceremonies conducted by someone in the highest level of authority over the population. What is clear to me, is that these sites demonstrate an intelligence, organization, and level of technical understanding that turns the conventional scientific explanation of human history upside down. Let me be clear; I do not believe that these structures were made by aliens from outer-space aka the Ancient Alien theory. However, many who do not hold a Biblical world view may find what I think as equally bizarre.
Many cultures that made or inherited these structures, also have legends of ‘giants’ invading their lands in times past. From the Bible to the Native American Indians. So, did the giants make, or at least direct the construction of these structures? Or did they have knowledge about these structures that were already there before they were? According to the Bible and The Book of Enoch, these giants were half-human and half-angelic. If these ancient Transhumanist half-breed angels were responsible for the creation of such amazing structures as Stone Henge and the Pyramids, then what colossal structures were their ‘supernatural’ ancestors – the fallen angels who came to earth at Mount Hermon – capable of making? Were they the creators of these structures? Couldn’t they have at least influenced the shapes of these mountains?
Just Adam was the first man created by God, and Nimrod was the first Nephilim created by the (fallen) angels, could these Golan Heights Geoglyphs be the first earthworks ever created? And if so, who created them? God, Angels or the Giants? And what are their purpose?
