"Now the Phoenicians who came with Cadmus, and to whom the Gephyraei belonged, introduced into Greece upon their arrival a great variety of arts, among the rest that of writing, whereof the Greeks till then had, as I think, been ignorant. And originally they shaped their letters exactly like all the other Phoenicians, but afterwards, in course of time, they changed by degrees their language, and together with it the form likewise of their characters."
Benjamin Franklin had written on the Phoenicians: "This inscription, which you find to be Phoenician, is, I think, near Taunton (not Jannston, as you write it). There is some account of it in the old Philosophical Transactions. I have never been at the place, but shall be glad to see your remarks on it.' (more…)
W. W. Rouse Ball, A Short Account of the History of Mathematics (1905) had said of the Phoenicians:
"It seems probable that the early Greeks were largely indebted to the Phoenicians for their knowledge of practical arithmetic or the art of calculation, and perhaps also learnt from them a few properties of numbers. It may be worthy of note that Pythagoras was a Phoenician; and according to Herodotus, but this is more doubtful, Thales was also of that race."
In his 1871 book Ancient America, John Denison Baldwin said this about the Phoenicians being the first people to establish colonies and cities filled with civilized life:
"The known enterprise of the Phoenician race, and this ancient knowledge of America, so variously expressed, strongly encourage the hypothesis that the people called Phoenicians came to this continent, established colonies in the region where ruined cities are found, and filled it with civilized life.
It is argued that they made voyages on the “great exterior ocean,” and that such navigators must have crossed the Atlantic; and it is added that symbolic devices similar to those of the Phoenicians are found in the American ruins, and that an old tradition of the native Mexicans and Central Americans described the first civilizers as “bearded white men,” who “came from the East in ships."
The number 33 is said to be the Master Number (Master Teacher). The Amon (AMEN) is the numerical equivalent of 1+13+5+14=33. Amen is the God of Truth, and 33 represents Christ consciousness. In the Book of Enoch, Mount Hermon is the place where the Grigori; "Watchers, Sons of God or the Nephilim," a class of fallen angels descended to Earth, and is at 33 degrees latitude and longitude.
There are many conspiracies surrounding the 33rd parallel of latitude that is 33 degrees north of the Earth's equatorial plane, and the 33 degrees in Freemasonry. Whether or not there are any concrete facts tying them together in Truth, in my opinion has yet to be determined without a shadow of a reasonable doubt. But there are definitely some strange coincidences and a pattern of both Phoenician (Sidonian/Hebrew/Canaanite) and Masonic endeavors that seem to tie the two together in a world wide web that needs to be explored using reason rather than conspiratorial nonsense.
Some people seem to think it has to deal with some evil Masonic plot and or that it some type of grid energy portal to the Gods, but I have found that this is just a theory propagated by profane people who are not in the know, but think they are by spreading disinformation. (more…)
"John Leylande was appointed by King Henry VIII to go through the archives of the various religious institutions dissolved by the king and remove for preservation any books or manuscripts of an important character.
Among the documents copied by Leylande was a series of questions and answers concerning the mystery of Masonry written by King Henry VI. (more…)
The Paraíba Stone Inscription is a script of Phoenician text dated to approximately the sixth century BCE that was found in Paraita, the easternmost state of Brazil. The text tells of the Phoenician Masonic “Merchant King” and “King Hiram” who is called Tyrian King Hiram III (r. 554-533 BCE) in the text.
The Paraíba Inscription also mentions the “Sidonian Canaanites”, who are also known as the Phoenicians, who set sail around Africa and ended up on the shores of Brazil during the nineteenth year of the reign of King Hiram, some 500 years BC. The stone was said to be found in 1872 by slaves on the plantation of a man named Joaquim Alves da Costa.
Here is the complete Paraiba Stone translation:
"We are children of Canaan from Sidon of the Eastern Kingdom of Merchants and are cast, I pray, here beside a central land of mountains (with this) offered choice gift to the Most High Gods and Goddesses in year 19 of King Hiram, I pray (still) strong, from the valley of Ezion-geber of the Red Sea.
Thereby (we) journeyed with 10 ships and we were at sea together assuredly two years around the land of Ham. We were separated by the hand of Baal and no longer remained among our companions, I pray, we have come here, 12 men and 3 women at this new land. Devoted, I make, even whom men of wealth bow the knee, a pledge to the Most High Gods and Goddesses (with) sure hope."
The Phoenicians sailing to the Americas to places such as Brazil and colonizing the area is by no means a new idea and it has been written about by many experts over the last few hundred years. In the Rio de Janeiro National Museum there are said to be tombstones with Phoenician, Syriac and Sanskrit inscriptions that were found in the Brazilian countryside. (more…)
"The Hohokam were the original Phoenicians, migrating into the region three hundred years before the birth of Christ and staying for seventeen hundred years." Len Sherman
Many people are not aware that the name of the red rock spiritual place in the Southwest of the United States that we know as Sedona, Arizona, was founded by a biblical people we know as the Sidonians from the island of Crete. The Greeks had called them the Phoenicians, the Egyptians had known them as the Sea Peoples, and they are also known in the Scripture as the Hebrew people.
You will find that my claims of the Sidonians can actually be backed up by science, history, and simple etymology. For example, the name of the beautiful city called Sedona, is derived from the name of their home, Sidon. The name Sedona is derived from the Hebrew Sidonia ( Σιδών, ῶνος, ἡ). Hence, the Phoenician Hebrew Indians of Sedona, Arizona. (more…)
Another ancient American Indian artifact was found here that I would like to share with you that helps support my American Indian and Hebrew connections that I have been making. It is an ancient massive stone that contains text in the form of Old Hebrew, and it also has an abbreviated version of the Ten Commandments written upon it. (more…)
