Yes, that would be great.

I will invite the paper-research group too, including dr. Jensma.

Let's work on summarizing our theory, whoever has one.

Are they all invited to play a role in that movie you are going to produce??

Summarize our theory... Now that won't be easy as things are still developing.

Before I continue with other things, I will post some translated fragments from "Het Geheim van het Oera-Linda-Boek" (the secret of the OLB) by Murk de Jong (1927).

Page 34, a quote from F. Binkes in "De Vrije Fries" (the free Frisian) #1 (1839):

"There are two kinds of people, that are most harmful for the practice of history: those who believe everything and those who believe nothing. The first present us anything they find, without sifting, ripe and green, plausible and improbable; but the second reject anything that at their own first sight seems to have no historical certainty. They cut all this out with a so-called skeptical trimming knife, that is often very blunt, or used very awkwardly by them."

To this M. de Jong adds the following comment:

The author [Binkes] does not hesitate to declare, that the unbelievers have harmed old Frisian history infinitely more than the naive believers.

On the same page dr. de Jong gives a similar quote from J.H. Halbertsma in "De Vrije Fries" #11 (1868):

"Frisian history to her great misfortune has mostly fallen in the hands of ultras, who either rigorously rejected the old sagas as worthless fiction, or accepted them as historical truth".

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Edit to add:
Before having read any of the above quotes, I had put the following on my blog (Fryskednis):

Beware of two common mistakes:
- some is true, so all is true
- some is false, so all is false

Maybe.
For now I'm thinking about a selection of short films, from docu-style items to staged scenes from the book.

For me it's good to have a deadline to at least report my current views.

A theory should never be final. May various searchers and thinkers inspire eachother.

Around the beginning of this year we have been discussing about a possible connection between the 2194 BC date in the OLB and astronomical/astrological constellations and alignments:

http://www.unexplain...=184645&st=9225

My idea had been that someone in the 19th century with knowledge of Biblical chronology and of nautical/astronomical and/or astrological calculations had tried to fabricate a date in the past that was based on some special planetary alignment with certain stars (and maybe a comet like Halley's Comet).

A couple of times the constellation of Taurus showed up in connection with this idea.

OK, apparently someone else has the same idea, although he really thinks that a certain planetary alignment CAN cause disasters:

French:

LA SUBMERSION DE L'ALDLAND EN -2193

Je dois à Monsieur Pascal Flament la très intéressante remarque suivante : "Dans l'Oera Linda Boek, la date de -2193 pour la submersion de l'Aldland me paraît tout à fait correcte scientifiquement parlant. Avec un simple logiciel de calcul d'éphémérides, on peut  visualiser  l'emplacement des astres en -2193. On remarque un alignement des planètes du système solaire (sauf Neptune), ainsi que de la Lune, des étoiles Aldébaran et Antarès. Il est scientifiquement démontré qu'un tel alignement de planètes peut provoquer des catastrophes naturelles (par exemple, le simple alignement de Jupiter et Saturne avec le Soleil en 2003 a provoqué une nette augmentation de l'intensité des activités du Soleil, une éruption solaire record a même été constatée, qui, par chance, s'est produite du côté opposé à la Terre). Il y eut également un alignement de planètes en -1193, mais moins important que celui de -2193 et la Terre n'y figurait pas. Je reste donc de l'avis de l'OLB.

Ce qui me surprend est que l'alignement des planètes en -2193 s'est déroulé dans la période du Jol. Cette période était peut-être célébrée par nos ancêtres en souvenir des cataclysmes de cette époque (ou plutôt du fait d'y avoir survécu)."


http://home.nordnet....heemstra02.html

English:

THE FLOODING OF ALDLAND IN -2193

I owe to Mr. Pascal Flament the very interesting remark: "In the Oera Linda Boek, the date -2193 for the flooding of Aldland seems quite correct scientifically speaking. Using simple software for ephemeric calculations , one can visualize the location of the stars in -2193. One will note an alignment of the planets of the solar system (except Neptune), and the moon, with the stars Aldebaran and Antares**. It is scientifically proven that such an alignment of planets can cause natural disasters (eg, the simple alignment of Jupiter and Saturn with the Sun in 2003 caused a marked increase in the intensity of activity of the Sun, a solar eruption record was even noticed, which, luckily, was produced on the side of the sun away from the Earth). There was also an alignment of planets in -1193, but less important than -2193 and Earth was not among them. I agree with the date in the OLB.

What surprises me is that the alignment of planets occurred in -2193 during Jol time. This period was perhaps celebrated by our ancestors in remembrance of the disasters of that time (or rather the fact of having survived)."



[** Aldebaran and Antares are 2 of the brightests stars near the ecliptic and opposite eachother on that eclipitic, with Aldebaran in Taurus and Antares in Scorpio]

(I found out about this person through this site: http://eden-saga.com...linda-boek.html )

Another fragment from "Het Geheim van het Oera-Linda-Boek" (the secret of the OLB) by Murk de Jong (1927).

Page 74:

The only megalithic tomb ['hunebed'] of Friesland, that - as a memory of the Stone Age - would be much older than Adela, on the Van Swinderen estate in Rijs (Gaasterland), was destroyed immediately after its discovery in 1849, even before the archaeologist Dr. Jansen had heard about it.

And (paraphrased):

Dr. J.H. Halbertsma explained the phenomenon, that in Friesland so little antiquities are found:

The glory-addiction, that results in erecting monuments for oneself and others, was unknown to the sober and solid nature of the Frisians, as they chose to BE great, rather than APPEAR great.

The Dutch province of Friesland was only a tiny part of the area covered by the socalled "Fryan empire" of the OLB, or a small part of the historical "Magna Frisia/Frisionum" of the early middle ages.

Dutch:

De hunebedden in Nederland zijn gebouwd in de nieuwe steentijd, het Neolithicum, van 3450 tot circa 3250 v.Chr., maar ze zijn gebruikt tot circa 2850 v.Chr.

Van de 54 hunebedden die men nu nog kan zien in Nederland staan er 52 in de provincie Drenthe. De andere twee staan in de provincie Groningen: één bij Noordlaren, enkele meters over de grens met Drenthe, de andere in een museum in Delfzijl. Deze laatste werd in de jaren '80 van de twintigste eeuw gevonden bij een opgraving in Heveskesklooster
.

English:

The dolmens in the Netherlands ("hunebed") were built during the New Stone Age or the Neolithic, from 3450 to around 3250 BC., But they're still being used to around 2850 BC.

Of the 54 dolmens that can still be seen in the Netherlands there are 52 in the province of Drenthe. The other two are in the province of Groningen: one at Noordlaren, a few meters across the border from Drenthe, the other in a museum in Delfzijl. The latter was found in the 80s of the twentieth century at an excavation in Heveskesklooster

There is evidence of human habitation going back to 3000 BC at Denghoog

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sylt

Denghoog is an ancient monument dating from 3000 BC near Wenningstedt-Braderup on the German Island of Sylt.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Denghoog


In the Nordfriesland (North Frisia) region of the German province of Schleswig-Holstein, there are 10,000[2] North Frisian speakers. While many of these Frisians live on the mainland, most are found on the islands, notably Sylt, Föhr, Amrum, and Heligoland. The local corresponding North Frisian dialects are still in use.

http://en.wikipedia....isian_languages

And mind you: many of these dates may antedate the 2194 BC date in the OLB with many ages, but in the OLB we can read an extensive description of the Fryan area of BEFORE 2194 BC. So a date like 3000 BC or 2850 BC should fall within the era they were supposed to rule Europe.

Do we read anything about these 'Fryans' constructing dolmens? No, not one word.

And other megalithic structures were still being built all over Europe long after 2194 BC. Do we read anything about that in the OLB? Again, not one word.

Only an extensive description of how a 'citadel' looked like, a structure no one ever found a single brick or stone of.

In 1833 the Frisians erected a 'pyramid' at the "Opstalboom", a ceremonial artificial mound (a place for Frisian jurisdiction).

But that was just a rather tiny thing.

Halbertsma wanted something 'greater' (he wasn't called "Mister Fryslan" for nothing, right?) and he and his 'compatriots' concocted a history people have been discussing for more than 150 years now.

The language of the OLB is either an ancestor of English, Dutch, German and Swedish,
or an inconceivably good reconstruction of it.

The following is just a reading (ex)sample to demonstrate this.

Some agreements and differences between OLB and known Frisian myths, sagas or legends.

(based on p.145-150 of "Het Geheim van het Oera-Linda-Boek" by M. de Jong, 1927)

1.
Myth: Friso arrived in 313 BC (Scarlensis: 299 BC), marking the start of Frisian history.

OLB: [p.119] He arrived in 303 BC, ca. 1900 years after oldest described historical event (big flood).

2.
Myth: Friso arrived in a desolate, uninhabited land.

OLB: He returned in a land that had suffered much of a flood, but still had inhabitants and cities, as well as a high culture.

3.
Myth: Friso was a prince from India.

OLB: [p.74] Friso was a descendant from a Fryan colony in Athens that had resettled in India ca. 1550 BC.

4.
Myth: Friso had two brothers, Saxo and Bruno.

OLB: Friso had two brothers-in-law, Hetto and Bruno. The 'Saxmen' were much older than Friso.

5.
Myth: Bruno is founder of Brunswijk.

OLB: [p.151] Bruno goes to 'Mannagarda-wrda', Munster according to Ottema (Medieval name: 'Minnegarte-wrta').

6.
Myth: Hetto is a son of Friso.

OLB: [p.150] Hetto (meaning: the hot one) is a brother-in-law and goes to 'Kattaburch' (Kassel) in the Saxmarks, which suggests an etymology for 'Hessen'.

7.
Myth: Friso had served in the army of Alexander the Great.

OLB: [p.125] He also served under Demetrius (son of Antigonus), who kidnapped his son and daughter. Friso remarried in Stavia.

8.
Myth: Friso was a great king and primal father of the Frisians.

OLB: [p.145] He was kind of an usurper, hostile towards the ancient polity of matriarchs and burgladies. He tried to win followers with gold and did not allow that a new Mother was chosen [p.151-153]. He tried to connect with one of the oldest and noblest clans, the Oera-Lindas or Adelinga, by having his youngest daughter Konrnhélja marry Háchgána, son of Wiljo and Fréthorik, brother of Koneréd Oera Linda [p.146]. To please the Oera Lindas he also named his son (from his new wife Swéthirte) 'Adel'. Friso did NOT become king [p.154].

9.
Myth: Friso's father was named 'Adel', king of 'Phresia' or 'Pharrosia' (at Ganges river), and some of the later kings after Friso (his descendants) were named 'Adel'. One of his granddaughters was named 'Adela'.

OLB: Inspired by the 'book of Adelinga', Friso named his son 'Adel' (see 8.).

10.
Myth: Adel (son of Friso) married Swob, daughter of the Sueban king.

OLB: [p.155] Adel (son of Friso) married Jfkja (nicknamed Svôbene) from Svôbaland.

11.
Myth: Another son of Friso was named 'Vitho' or 'Jotho'. He married the daughter of the Cimbrian king and became principal of Jutland (suggesting that Jutland was named after him). In Frisian myth, the Cimbrian king and his daughter had different names than in OLB.

OLB: [p.150] In OLB he is named just 'Witto' (the white). He saved 'Sjuchtherte', daughter of 'Wilhim' (principal of the Juttar) from the Sélanders, became her husband and the successor of her father.

12.
Myth: Friso had one wife only, named Hilla, from Asian descent. They had seven sons and one daughter, being the youngest. The daughter was named 'Vimoda' ('weemoed' means melancholy), because her mother had died at giving birth.

OLB: Friso remarried with the Fryan 'Swéthirte', daughter of 'Wilfréthe' (gréva of Staveren). They had two sons and two daughters. The oldest daughter was named 'Wémod'; she married 'Kavch', son of 'Wichhirte', king of the Gértmànna [p.146]. Her name suggests the origin of the area Wimodia or Vigmodia in lower-Elbe. The name Kauch suggests an origin for the name of the Kauchen or Chauken tribe in East-Friesland.

13.
Myth: The successors of Friso's son Adel were 'Ubbo' (namegiver of the Ubii), and 'Asinga Ascon', who was in his 71st reigning year in the year zero.

OLB: The four successors of Friso were all named 'Adel'; the fourth was nicknamed 'Black Adel' or 'Asega Askar' (which in the OLB language means something like claimant of the law) [p.195].

It seems that Dr. Peiser also read the OLB:

http://www.sis-group...ract/peiser.htm

Layers around the World: Archaeological Evidence and Methodological Problems

Abstract of talk by Benny J Peiser. Liverpool John Moores University, School of Human Sciences, Byrom Street, Liverpool L3 3AF, UK. e-mail: B.J.Peiser[at]livjm.ac.uk

Presented at the SIS Conference: Natural Catastrophes during Bronze Age Civilisations (11th-13th July 1997)

During the last two decades, researchers have found evidence for abrupt climate change and civilisation collapse as well as sudden sea level changes, catastrophic inundations, widespread seismic activity and abrupt changes in glacial features at around 2200±200 BC. Climatological proxy data together with sudden changes in lacustrine, fluvial and aeolian deposits are clearly detectable at the Atlantic-Subboreal boundary in the archaeological, geological and dendrochronological records from around the world. A survey of ~500 excavation reports, research papers and scientific abstracts on late 3rd Millennium BC civilisation collapse and climate change was carried out in order to assess i) the nature, ii) the extent and iii) the chronology of sudden climatic and social downturns at this particular chronozone. This comparative study shows a significant pattern of abrupt glacial, eustatic, lacustrine, fluvial, pedological and geomorphic changes at around 4250±250 cal BP in many areas around the world. In addition, the majority of sites and cities (>1000) of the first urban civilisations in Asia, Africa and Europe appear to have collapsed at around the same time. Most sites in Greece (~260), Anatolia (~350), the Levant (~200), Mesopotamia (~30), the Indian subcontinent (~230), China (~20), Persia/Afghanistan (~50), Iberia (~70) which collapsed at around 2200±200 BC, exhibit unambiguous signs of natural calamities and/or rapid abandonment. The proxy data detected in the marine, terrestrial, biological and archaeological records point to sudden ecological, climatic and social upheavals which appears to coincide with simultaneous sea- and lake level changes, increased levels of seismic activity and widespread flood/tsunami disasters. The main problem in interconnecting this vast amount of data chronologically is the application of incoherent and imprecise dating methods in different areas of geological and climatological research. It is hypothesised that the globally detected evidence for sudden downturns at the Atlantic-Subboreal boundary is chronologically interconnected and that chronological diviations are mainly due to imprecise dating methods. Neither a seismic nor a climatic explanation for these significant natural and social disasters appear capable to account for the diversity of ecological alterations and great variety of damage features as well as the global extent of these events. Extra-terrestrial bodies, on the other hand, depending on their cometary constitution and their cohesive strength, can have catastrophic effects on the ecological system in a variety of patterns which match the glaciological, geological and archaeological features documented in this study.

http://www.sis-group...ract/peiser.htm


I bet he did (read what one of the other members of that same society, Phillip Clapham, wrote):

◦Letters: Saturn and the Primordial Light, by Paul Standring; Comalcalco and Olmec Heads, by David Eccott; Hatshepsut, the Queen of Sheba and Solomon, by Bert Fiddelaers; Mars, by John Ackerman; Millennial Madness, by Derel Briarley; Oera Linda again, by Phillip Clapham; Year counts in the Divided Monarchy, by Michael G. Reade; A Twist of Time, by G.K. Barnard; Earth Catastrophism and 1054 AD Event, by William P. Bourne.

•Letters: Sequel to 'Noah and the Raven'; Please Explain; 'The Boojums Allowed'; Earth-flipping Catastrophe?; Theological IOmplications of Catastrophism - Some Replies; Various Skeletons in the Cupboard?; Hidden Meaning of the Oera Linda Book; Dragons ....

http://www.sis-group...uk/workshop.htm

Now this:

Benny Peiser ("Comparative Analysis of Late Holocene Upheaval") says that "Floodplain deposits of up to 3 metres thick and stretching up to 15 kilometres inland have been detected between Tirys and Mycenae" dated to ca. 2200-2300 BC.

http://personal.eune...ri/tilmari2.htm

I remember this local flood, and I think I mentioned it.


And this: the OLB describes the world as some kind of paradise before the events of 2194 BC, but maybe they 'forgot' something:

Aftermath of this may be the 2807 BC ocean impact described by Bruce Masse in Peiser et al.: Natural Catastrophes (Oxford, 1998). If this is the great Flood Comet, as Masse seems to indicate, this explains why the Sumerian story of Flood, on which basis the Genesis Noachian Flood story is built, is combined with the story of Gilgamesh. Gilgamesh reigned in the 27th century, 300-450 years before the two great cataclysms in late third millennium BC. Or was the comet or comets swarming and breaking up the whole period of 3114 BC to 2807 BC with diminishing frequency and damage ending temporarily in a great splash in the Atlantic?

The second Dark Age lasted from 2200 BC to 1900 BC. A third Dark Age seems to have followed the "tree ring event" (where the tree rings were very narrow) of 1159 BC (Baillie, A Slice through time). The Mycenean culture may be one of its victims
.

http://personal.eune...ri/tilmari2.htm


And this is what that society is all about:


Society for Interdisciplinary Studies
The oldest and most up to date society for catastrophist information and research
.

The SIS was formed in 1974 in response to the growing interest in global cosmic catastrophes, initiated earlier by the publication of Immanuel Velikovsky's book, Worlds in Collision and its attempted suppression by the academic establishment. His insistence on past planetary instability, particularly with regard to the planets Venus and Mars, the role of electricity in the cosmos and the use of myth to provide evidence in respect of his theories is well-known.  A scholar in his own right and a colleague of Albert Einstein, Velikovsky has been rightly called 'the father of modern catastrophism'.

Many great discoveries and insights are made by intuitive non-scientists but, unfortunately, academia rarely welcomes challengers to established thinking. Despite this, in 1974 the SIS took up Velikovsky's challenge to the orthodox view of the cosmos - as being one of planetary stability - to investigate:

•The role that cosmic catastrophes may have played globally in ancient times
•How myths, recorded by cultures the world over, can help us discover what happened

A new generation of catastrophists arose who have continued to encourage investigation and exchange of ideas in all fields opened up by Velikovsky's theories of global cosmic catastrophism, which demand that there should be corroboration between various other disciplines, making cosmic catastrophism truly interdisciplinary and inclusive. Such disciplines and subjects include: archaeology, stratigraphy, psychology, archaeoastronomy, linguistics, biology, astrophysics, geomagnetism, religion, mythology, astronomy, evolution, palaeontology, various scientific dating methods and biblical studies to name a few.

Art-history, ice-core dating, Earth reversals (or axis shifts) and the effect of catastrophes of any kind on Earth's climate, are also addressed. So, too, the effect of past climate-change on chronology. Of overarching importance is the role of electricity in the universe, which, although becoming accepted by more open-minded researchers and scientists, is still ignored by the UK 'establishment'.

In conjunction with plasma physics and rock-art, the mythology of the axis mundi has also recently been given far more clarity. It seems clear than any reconstruction of how the solar system operated once and operates now will remain unacknowledged by orthodox scientists unless those who have found such new theories to be reasonable, continue to demand objective hearing and consideration of them. However, attempts at censorship and suppression of new and unorthodox ideas, by one means or another, are still commonplace

I posted this in Trojans were Basques? topic but felt it could be a connection in this topic too. If the people of Southern Belgium, who may have been Fryans were the Veneti, it could be the sailors of this area were in Italy and had 'factories'.

In an mmm bop it's gone...

I bet he did (read what one of the other members of that same society, Phillip Clapham, wrote):

Have you asked yourself why he quotes from over 500 science articles to prove his point and need not quote from the OLB?

And this: the OLB describes the world as some kind of paradise before the events of 2194 BC, but maybe they 'forgot' something:

Aftermath of this may be the 2807 BC ocean impact described by Bruce Masse in Peiser et al


IT just so happens that Bruce Masse is wrong about this date. He is guessing. The date is 2200 BC.
Dr. Abbot confirmed to me that the Fenambosy Chevrons in Madagascar have not been dated as yet and that they may well date to 2200 BC. All proxy data points to 2200 BC.

Do you fully grasp the following from your post? If so, then you seem to agree with me.

Many great discoveries and insights are made by intuitive non-scientists but, unfortunately, academia rarely welcomes challengers to established thinking.

However, attempts at censorship and suppression of new and unorthodox ideas, by one means or another, are still commonplace.

Yep, and nowhere more than here at UM.

Btw. You have said many times that the OLB derived at the date of 2200 BC from Biblical chronology. I challenge you to get this date from the Bible (or rather, from Biblical chronology). If you manage to do so, you will be the first person in history to manage this.

To start with your last remark: I actually posted about how it was done, but not by me.

It was a little before I started posting about astronomy/astrology/comets.

There was someone on the web who calculated TWO dates, based on Biblical chronology alone: and  lo-and-behold: the avarage of those two dates was 2194 BC. He used socalled 'solar years' and 'real years' to come to his two dates. I will bet Puzzler still remembers that post of mine because she and I have discussed it.
You were conveniently absent during that discussion.

Now about this Peiser:

http://en.wikipedia....ki/Benny_Peiser

I have googled what you quoted from him, but nowhere did I find anything else but the same quote. People have simply copied from the site you quited from, and spread the 'news'.

Oh yeah, and it's all a conspiracy, yes I 'fully grab' what I quoted. I hope you also read that Wiki about Peiser.

Now a bit about those 'flood-plain deposits' of Tyrins and Mycene:

Locations: #1 Mycenae, 2 Argos, 3 Tiryn, 4 Nauplion, 5 Epidaurus, 6 Lerna
Posted Image

http://www.specialty...os_mycenae.html



"Tiryns. The prehistoric palace of the kings of Tiryns, the results of the latest excavations" / 1885

CHAPTER II.

Topography and History op Tiryns.

The plain of Argos was apparently in early prehistoric
times a bay running far inland ; this was gradually filled
up by the deposit of the numerous streams descending
from the surrounding hills
, which, though now bare and
barren, were then covered with forests
.

http://www.archive.o...drgoog_djvu.txt


What I'd like to see is some paper that dates these flood-plain deposits to around 2200 BC. Maybe I must look a little bit further.

This paper from 2005 doesn't mention 3 mtrs thick layers of that age (2200 BC):

An Assessment of Protogeometric Apsidal Buildings
Senior Honors Thesis: Sarah Moore
Departments of Anthropology and Classics
Faculty Mentor: Dr. Aleydis Van de Moortel
Department of Classics
5 August 2005

But one thing I am pretty sure of: Peiser knew of the OLB.

That is not just wrong, it is plain dumb. Tell us please: WHAT is being censored and suppressed at UM? You should at least have the decency to prove that accusation because not one of the UM admins has hindered you in any way from posting whatever you wanted to post.

For Alewyn:

The date of 2194 BCE in the Oera Linda Book, what was it based on?

-1- Astrology (some special and rare conjunction)?
-2- Astronomy (an actual/probable impact of a comet - Edmund Halley/William Whiston/Alewyn)
-3- Biblical chronology (Friesche Volksalmanak)?
-4- A combination of 1&2 or 1&3 or 2&3 ?

I think we have covered every possibility by now, but for option -3- I did find something new:

Noah's Flood: Bible Stories: Bible accuracy: bible calendars: Bible Patriarchs.
According to Antiquities 1:6:5 Abraham was born 292 ARTIFICIAL years after the flood. By this standard the flood occurred in 2184 BCE (unless the data was recorded in true solar years, in which case it will have occurred in 2205 BCE). Josephus reiterates the stipulated Biblical data of 292 years separating the Flood Event and the Birth of Abraham.

http://www.kingscale...PPENDIX_17.html

The mean of 2184 and 2205 would 2194.5 BCE. That's what someone would do to be on the 'safe side'.

If anyone wants to check this guys calculations: be my guest, lol.

And you quoted this post of mine in a subsequent post... and left out what I had found out:

You even managed to distort/misread my post by saying I left out a possibility... while in reality I actually mentioned YOUR theory and YOUR name.
