All we need now is 4000 years old Minoan/Cretan bones and DNA extracted from those bones that indicate that these people were white, blond and blue-eyed. And when the skeletons are considerably taller than earlier skeletons, we're getting somewhere.

The Old Frisian  Asga (or Asega was a function, meaning judge. The Asega book is a set of laws and rules in the domain of the Asga, Asega.I think that the Oldfrisian text in the OLB has been copied from this Asega book, which was written in Riustringian. You may find Old Frisian texts on my website  s. http://www.rodinbook...eseteksten.html . The translations are in German and some in Dutch.

This is from the other thread about the OLB :

http://www.unexplain...47797&st=15

View PostAbramelin, on 14 May 2013 - 07:25 AM, said:

The original word is "Aldland" which was shortened by the sailors who visited it into "Atland". Aldland means "Old Land", and is still in use among the modern Frisians (Atlan).

And this is all the OLB mentions or suggests where Aldland was located and by whom it was inhabited:


In early times almost all the Finda lived together in their native land, which was called Aldland, and is now submerged. They were thus far away, and we had no wars. When they were driven hitherwards, and appeared as robbers, then arose the necessity of defending ourselves, and we had armies, kings, and wars.

===

Aldland, called by the seafaring people, Atland, disappeared, and the wild waves rose so high over hill and dale that everything was buried in the sea.

===

About a Finda people (the Fryans called that tribe the Finns, their priests were called Magiar):


One hundred and one years after the submersion of Aldland a people came out of the East.

===

Punjab, that is five rivers, and by which we travel, is a river of extraordinary beauty, and is called Five Rivers, because four other streams flow into the sea by its mouth. Far away to the eastward is another large river, the Holy or Sacred Ganges. Between these two rivers is the land of the Hindoos. Both rivers run from the high mountains to the plains. The mountains in which their sources lie are so high that they reach the heavens, and therefore these mountains are called Himmellaia. Among the Hindoos and others out of these countries there are people who meet together secretly. They believe that they are pure children of Finda, and that Finda was born in the Himmellaia mountains, whence she went with her children to the lowlands. Some of them believe that she, with her children, floated down upon the foam of the Ganges, and that that is the reason why the river is called the Sacred Ganges.

===


When they were ready they began to disagree. Teunis wished to sail through the straits to the Middle Sea, and enter the service of the rich Egyptian king, as he had done before, but Inka said he had had enough of all those Finda’s people. Inka thought that perchance some high-lying part of Atland might remain as an island, where he and his people might live in peace. As the two cousins could not agree, Teunis planted a red flag on the shore, and Inka a blue flag. Every man could choose which he pleased, and to their astonishment the greater part of the Finns and Magyars followed Inka, who had objected to serve the kings of Finda’s people. When they had counted the people and divided the ships accordingly, the fleet separated. We shall hear of Teunis afterwards, but nothing more of Inka.


=====


When you combine all these quotes, then you get two possible locations for Aldland:

- It was far away from the Fryans who lived in Europe, so it could not have been somewhere in the North Sea, as is always suggested.
- Aldland was the homeland of the Finda.
- 101 years after Aldland, the home of the Finda, submerged, a Finda tribe (Finns) came from the east.
- Among the Hindus lived a people who claimed to be pure descendants of Finda,who was borne in the Himalaya.

All this suggests Aldland was located somewhere in Asia. I thought it was the Pamir Plateau that, according to some in the 19th century, was the location of Paradise/Eden and was once flooded (THE Flood) when the Tarim Basin - of which some thought had once been an inland sea - emptied during heavy earthquakes. What  I understood from geology is that this never happened.


But the story of Inka and Teunis suggests it was located somewhere in the Atlantic, because Teunis entered the Middle Sea to go to Egypt, and Inka went the other way. Or it is a "Columbus" story who went to the west to search for Asia/Paradise. As I have shown in the other OLB thread, C thought that Paradise was located in SE Asia.

What I think is quite telling is that we do not read one single word about what happened on Aldland when it was still above water. Not even as some legend told among the Finda.

In this post I explained where Aldland/Atland should/could be located:

http://www.unexplain...15#entry4772321

But I must add an extra indication of where it might have been located (following the story):

The next is part of the description of the territory of the Fryans in Europe, of "before the bad time came":

On the other side [= to the east] we were hedged in by the broad Twiskland [= Germany], through which the Finda people dared not come on account of the thick forests and the wild animals.

http://oeralinda.angelfire.com/#au

Mind you: this was in the time BEFORE Aldland sank. So the Finda lived east of Twiskland/Germany, and so Aldland/Atland, their homeland, should be located somewhere in Asia.

.

I have accused Puzz, Van Gorp, Otharus and NO-ID-EA of "lego linguistics", lol, but I must admit you sometimes get astonishing results....

OK, here it goes.

I had been thinking of Noah's Flood or the Deluge - in Dutch it's "Zondvloed" -  and I checked the Dutch Wiki about it:

Zondvloedverhalen komen in meerdere culturen voor. Het woord 'zondvloed', afkomstig van het Middelnederlandse sintvloed, betekent oorspronkelijk aanhoudende vloed, maar doordat het volksetymologisch in verband werd gebracht met het begrip zonde, is het eerste lid vervormd geraakt.

Transl:
Flood Stories occur in several cultures. The word "'zondvloed', derived from the Middle Dutch 'sintvloed', originally means continuing flood, but because folk etymology associated it with the concept of sin or "zonde", the first member became deformed.

http://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zondvloed

It is the generally accepted etymology of the word "Zondvloed".

Now this:

The province of Sindh and the people inhabiting the region are named after the river known as the Sindhu before partition and now called the Indus River. In Sanskrit, síndhu means "river, stream", and refers to the Indus river in particular. The Greeks who conquered Sindh in 325 BC under the command of Alexander the Great rendered it as Indós, hence the modern Indus. The ancient Iranians referred to everything east of the river Indus as hind from the word Sindh. When the British arrived in the 17th century, they followed that regional example and applied the name to the entire subcontinent, calling it India, from the word Sindh/Sind

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


And then read about what happened very recently:

Sindh_floods (!!)
http://en.wikipedia....11_Sindh_floods

And look at this:
http://en.wikipedia....Pakistan_floods


Did something like that happen in that area in much more ancient times? It looks like it :


Asian mythology is complex and diverse. The story of the Great Flood for example, as presented to Christians in the Old Testament, is first found in Mesopotamian mythology, in the Epic of Gilgamesh. Hindu mythology tells about an Avatar of the God Vishnu in the form of a fish who warned Manu of a terrible flood. In ancient Chinese mythology, Shan Hai Jing, the Chinese ruler Da Yu, had to spend 10 years to control a deluge which swept out most of ancient China and was aided by the goddess Nüwa who literally fixed the broken sky through which huge rains were pouring.

http://www.answers.com/topic/asia



Matsya is described to have rescued the first man, Manu, from a great deluge. Matsya may be depicted as a giant fish, or anthropomorphically with a human torso connected to the rear half of a fish.

The earliest accounts of the legend associate Matsya with the creator god Prajapati (identified with Brahma). However, Puranic scriptures incorporate Matsya as an avatar of Vishnu. Matsya forewarns Manu about an impending catastrophic flood and orders him to collect all the grains of the world in a boat; in some forms of the story, all living creatures are also to be preserved in the boat. When the flood destroys the world, Manu - in some versions accompanied by the seven great sages - survives by boarding the ark, which Matsya pulls to safety. In later versions of this story, the sacred texts Vedas are hidden by a demon, whom Matsya slays: Manu is rescued and the scriptures are recovered. The tale is in the tradition of the family of flood myths, common across cultures.


(...)

Then Matsya tows the ship to the safety of the highest and driest ground, at the northern mountains (interpreted as the Himalayas).

(...)

Promising that he would sail the boat through the waters throughout the night of Brahma, Matsya disappeared after his revelation and reappeared as a horned fish on the day of the Deluge, when torrential rains drenched the earth.

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



Now I seriously start doubting the official etymology of the Dutch word "Zondvloed", or the original Middle Dutch "Sintvloed". as meaning "Flood caused by sin" or the  "Continuing Flood".

The original words (or name) could as well have been "Sindh Flood", or a huge flood caused by the torrential rains that drenched the earth along the Sindh (Indus) according to ancient Hindu legends. Medieval Dutch and Germans could have picked it up and explained it using folk etymology.

Cheers.

I have noticed something typical :

In the whole of the OLB the word for land is "land" or "lande", but only in the chapter about the "Hindoo" and the "Pangab" (Punjab) the form "lônd" is used.

http://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zondvloed tells more about it. Yet there is no single proof that Zond = Sindh.  As all floods have been named after a holy man or woman, sint could als mean Sint (= saint).

If you have followed my reasoning about the possible location of Aldland/Atland (according to what the OLB tells us about the Finda, their original homeland, the Hindoo and the birth place of their "Mother" Finda) throughout the years, you'd know that one possible location could be near the Himalaya.

Then there is this Hindu legend I posted about, plus the 19th century idea that Paradise/Eden was located near-  and the Flood happened on/near the Pamir Plateau and/or the Tarim Basin, and "Sindh Vloed" (Sindh Flood) for the Dutch "Sintvloed" doesn't sound that far off as an inspiration for part of the OLB disaster scenario in 2194 BCE.

The question is this: who of the possible 'suspects' knew of these ancient Hindu legends of a flood? Halbertsma wrote a booklet about Buddha, but that does not imply he was acquainted with ancient Hindu legends.

That Dutch floods were named after a saint is because those floods took place on a saint's day.

Personal observations on Sindh; the manners and customs of its inhabitants; and its productive capabilities (1843)

http://archive.org/d...lobservat00post

There are various opinions as to the origin of
the title given to this tract. By the Greeks, the
whole, or a portion, appears to have been known
as Sindomana. The Hindus trace it fabulously to
"Sindh, the brother of Hind, the son of Noah,"

and in their sacred books it is called Sindhii. Both
Hindus and Mahommedans style this portion of the
river Indus as Sindh, by which it is generally
known in the East, and it is thus probable, that
the river gives the name to that lower portion
of country fructified by its waters. The name,
however derived, is very ancient.

Thnx Abe, interesting stuff.

I was yesterday also pondering about the similarity between Ab-e-sind and Abyssinia (Ethiopia).
Once I came accross that some used to term Ethiopia as India in earlier times.  But this only to mention sideways.

About "zonvloed", I couldn't stop myself to check alternative etymologies as Bilderdijk (you never know if the guy has a clue in this one :-).
Interesting to find he mentions: zond (zont) as the much used (? did not investigate further) term 'sunt' in the northern parts of the world.

ZOND of ZONT oudtijds door geheel het Noorden ‘Sunt’ als zee engte Wellicht van zu en zuigen als zu end zuiging … ook Werd het oudtijds meer algemeen als zee genomen en gebruiken wy t dus V gelijk het ook naar de aangegeven afleiding zijn moest S 34 Zie zuwe
http://books.google....&q=zond&f=false

He explains zont from zu-en (zuigen) -> to suck.  Waters that is drawn (sucked?) into the land.
analogue with zoen (kiss) i assume.

For what it's worth.

Yes indeed, the sonde (probe) hadn't crossed my mind but glides in as well.

About zonde (like as sin), i had to think of the second meaning in Dutch (spijtig, to regret, painfull):
when fe realizing to have waisted too much money for nothing we say 'da's sunt' (that s*cks in english i assume :-)

We Dutch say "Wat 'n zonde!".

Well, actually I say something like "Gloeiende, gloeiende, gvd!!" and so on.

Those Belgium beers really kick in, hah.

Just looking at my many bills from debt collectors (incassobureaus), the notice I got telling me I will be cut off from water-supply soon, my bank account being blocked with 17 Euros cash money left in my wallet, the housing association (woningbouwvereniging) telling me they want to kick me out because of not paying the rent for months... yeah, that sucks.



If I don't get that inheritance soon, you won't hear from me for a very long time. Maybe never again.

But I will continue posting as long as I have an internet connection.

Sorry if all this sounds a bit personal, dramatic, and private (and off topic).

And I DO know I have said something similar before.  But when you follow "the way of the crow", you will be able get funds from various sources.

But at some point those sources will dry up.

Sundaland sounds like the same word - the land might have seen as 'continuing' - a peninsula.

In Sanskrit Sindh means ' river, stream'  - it might have meant same as above really - a continuing area, a river or stream is something that just flows and flows, like flooded pipe, continual flood/water flow could be an initial concept of a river or stream - so Sindh as river, stream, could really be based in sund/sond/zont - continuation - same word.
