Oera Linda Book and the Great Flood [Part 2]

Unrelated but I saw it and liked it and thought I'd share it for those who hadn't seen it.

A map of the North Friesland area in 1651 comparable to 1240. All that area would have been there in OLB times. Just found it very interesting. Maybe LUMKA MAKIA was there.

Same area the apparent finds connected to Bronze Age Crete mentioned on the BritAm site.

This is an old one, but worth another try:

Translation:

"Frisian was supposed to be a representative of an old language phase, from which later English and Dutch had come forth. Both perspectives, the contemporary and historical-cultural-scientific, met about 1654 in the person of Simon Abbes Gabbema, who in 1659 would be appointed as the official historian of Friesland, or, as it was called 'landscape historian. To him the Frisian language and Frisian antiquity were inseparable components of contemporary Frisian identity. Quite clearly that was reflected in a new edition of the work of Japix that he published, supplemented by a Frisian grammar,a treatise on ancient Frisian characters and two examples of Old Frisian texts. But then it was already 1681."

"A treatise on ancient Frisian characters" ??

I would love to see what that was all about....

Did Gabbema not only experiment with Old Frisian, but did he also invent some sort of old Frisian script?

When the OLB talks about the destruction of Aldland, it says that it was the homeland of the Finda,and that is was "far away, and thus they had no need to wage war against the Finda" .

So it cannot be in Frisian territory or in the North Sea area.

The Columbus stuff is interesting and shows what you said - but it's late again, I'll have to catch up more tomorrow.

What I've been doing is checking out Rudbeck's ideas (not that there's all that much I can find on his work) some more because he's the only other one I know of that uses the same term 'Atland'. Not that I've got anywhere with Sweden being it but certainly took me to some interesting info and maps that kept me busy all night.

Rudbeck and his brother and other writer friends were all writing patriotic writings and making Nordic dictionaries, I still wonder who it was that wrote the OLB if it's not authentic...

I remember you once posted this same map.

Btw, you can read about the finds on the BritAm site, but it is not from the BritAm site itself. I assume you meant those ship utensils of a Minoan ship they found in the German Bight? Or the amber seals with Linear A script in the same area?

Did I? There you go then, my memory is shot, some might not have seen it anyway and it's good to relook over. I do recall seeing others but not those 2 side by side.

Yes, I meant them, I couldn't remember the other site, lol but I did recall the Brit Am site, feel free to link to the other site though.

Nor was I saying that was Atland, just to clarify.

This was about inscriptions in Scandinavia:

http://www.unexplain...20#entry4171106

Rock panel with carvings (Helleristning) I

Petroglyphs

Near to this cup mark, there is a figure which may represent a boat. With the high, upright stern and prow, equally high as what could be the mast, it looks like a ship rendered on a Mycenean vase from late Minoan time ( Ernst Kjellberg og Gösta Säflund, Græsk og Romersk Kunst, 1962, p. 31). To the left is the Linear A inscription, with the signs tu yu pi ti. The ship figure is pecked into the rock with the same technique as used in the inscription and the cup mark.

...and so on...

This is the post about he Minoan amber seals found in (the peat of) former Rungholt:

Linear Inscriptions in Germany

German anthropologist and cultural historian Hans Peter Duerr states that the Minoans visited the British Isles, presumably for the tin in Cornwall. From Cornwall, the North Friesian coast, a rich source of amber, is not much farther. Since its inundation in 1362, the “lost city” of Rungholt, on the Friesian island, Sudfall, has been a rich source of archaeological information. Under the bronze-aged peat layer were found pithoi, such as those carried aboard Minoan/Mycenaean ships during the 14th and 13th centuries BCE. Moreover, Duerr, while visiting the Rungholt site in 1994, found in the mud some amber artefacts[1] with Lin A/B inscriptions [2].

So it cannot be in Frisian territory or in the North Sea area.

That's why I said that you should not interconnect stories from a different background. If one counts the years since the flood of Zeeland, one would not expect some territory 2000 miles away in the Himalayan areea.

I don't get it: the Finda had a century to travel from somewhere in Asia to Fryan territory. According to the OLB itself, they were chased by a yet unknown tribe, so let's say they were in somewhat of a hurry.

But what 'Flood of Zeeland' are you talking about? The one Schotanus mentioned (360/350 BCE)?

Or this one:

1254 / Matthaeus Paris's account of a flood at the coast of Flanders:

Sandbach:

This is the history.

One hundred and one years after the submersion of Aldland a people came out of the East. That people was driven by another. Behind us, in Twiskland, they fell into disputes, divided into two parties, and each went its own way. Of the one no account has come to us, but the other came in the back of our Schoonland, which was thinly inhabited, particularly the upper part. Therefore they were able to take possession of it without contest, and as they did no other harm, we would not make war about it. Now that we have learned to know them, we will describe their customs, and after that how matters went between us. They were not wild people, like most of Finda’s race; but, like the Egyptians, they have priests and also statues in their churches. The priests are the only rulers; they call themselves Magiars, and their headman Magy. He is high priest and king in one. The rest of the people are of no account, and in subjection to them. This people have not even a name; but we call them Finns, because although all the festivals are melancholy and bloody, they are so formal that we are inferior to them in that respect.

In early times almost all of Finda's people lived together in their motherland, 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.

Both quotes tell us the Finda were driven to Fryan territory by an unknown people.

The first quote is about this (or how I read it):

People A were driven by another people B. Exit B.

People A fell into disputes, split up into 2 parties, A1 and A2.

A2 was never heard of again, but A1 arrived in the back of Schoonland/Skênland and settled there.

A1 were called "Finna" or "Finns" by the Fryans, and their priests were called "Magiar".

A1 was more civilized than most of the Finda, and were more like the Egyptians (based on their priests, religion, temples and statues).

Good job in finding all that again.

How interesting really. I think that amber may have been so prized for a reason like this. Minoans visited the British Isles, a pretty sweeping statement. I'd believe it, if the Phoenicians had made it Gades, what would stop them going up the Atlantic coast further?

Minoans are harder to believe but if Minoan artifacts have been found there, it's likely there was at least trade at that time. The mythology of Helios is imo at least one God bought from Scandinavia into Greece.

The English word 'tin' is Germanic; related words are found in the other Germanic languages—German Zinn, Swedish tenn, Dutch tin, etc.—but not in other branches of Indo-European except by borrowing (e.g. Irish tinne). Its origin is unknown.

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

We know Mycenaean amber is Baltic too.

------------------------------------------------

Wouldn't you think Atland would still be submerged, or has it risen, or dried out? I'm wondering where this submerged land is in the middle of Asia that sailors could sail to.

Greece might have been Finno-Ugric speakers, whose language changed to Indo-European, when we hear of the language change of the Greeks, especially the Athenians.

The Finns and the Sámi maintained their separate language identity even at a time when other Uralic speakers were losing their language to the Indo-Europeans.

The first quote is about this (or how I read it):

People A were driven by another people B. Exit B.

People A fell into disputes, split up into 2 parties, A1 and A2.

A2 was never heard of again, but A1 arrived in the back of Schoonland/Skênland and settled there.

A1 were called "Finna" or "Finns" by the Fryans, and their priests were called "Magiar".

A1 was more civilized than most of the Finda, and were more like the Egyptians (based on their priests, religion, temples and statues).

There is argument as to whether the Finns and the Sámi “arrived in their present day locations either as a still undifferentiated ethnolinguistic group or as linguistically and ethnically separate people.

The new theory, using mitochondrial DNA testing, states that the Finns did not arrive in Sámiland only a short 3,000 years ago but rather came out of the Sámi themselves.

Except for the time frame given, you could imagine this scene in the OLB:

When adding genetic evidence to the Baltic-Finnish and the Sámi language relationship, it appears that the two groups did descend from one single genetic and linguistic population, with the Finns diverging because of Baltic and Germanic agricultural influences; however, because of the distinctness between the two groups, the common ancestor may have divided as long ago as 23,000 BP and then reunited at around 8,500 BP. After the divergence of the Finns from the Sámi, the Sámi tended to have offspring within their own group; however, the influence from the Baltic and Germanic people caused the Finns to intermix with other Indo-Europeans, making them more genetically similar to the Europeans than the Sámi are

http://www.utexas.edu/courses/sami/dieda/hist/genetic.htm

I'll just end with the last paragraph of the article:

It makes sense that the Sámi should be closely tied to the Finns, if at one time they were the same group, even if this did take place many thousands of years ago. They originated from Europe but spoke a Uralic language among themselves. However, if the most recent data is true, the two groups seem to be genetically and linguistically distinct enough to allow them to finally be studied as separate groups, so there is an illogical sense to the Sámi and Finns link as well. So it seems that all the pieces of the Sámi puzzle have almost been put into place; however, with a history as long as theirs, pieces are always bound to be missing. For example, in Sámiland and throughout Scandinavia, there still exists an obvious residue of an even more ancient unknown language than Uralic in the region. Many of the names of rivers and lakes have no linguistic roots. {?.} This mystery still remains to this day and may possibly never be uncovered, but one must not forget how historically wrong science had been about the history of the Sámi. There is still a large amount on new information to be uncovered about the Sámi’s very ancient past.

I do understand that if the OLB is a hoax the line would be for them to come from the East as thought, but false, and the flood to be around the Tarim Basin. This is why this is an important point for me.

For many years, there was a common belief that the Sámi may have migrated from the east and have an Asian genetic background rather than a European one. For several hundred years, there was a belief that the Sámi and the Finns had a Mongoloid origin. This false belief was due to linguists of the time believing that Finno-Ugric languages had an eastern origin. It was also due to the Finns’ and Sámis’ tendency to have a phenotypic resemblance to the Mongoloids. In actuality, these Mongoloid-like traits do not occur at a higher average rate than they would in other Northern European groups. It merely appears this way due to the many generations that the Europeans have been farming, an activity that has caused physical features, such as high cheekbones that allow for bigger masseter muscles to chew tougher food, to reduce in size. Though the Sámi do have some Asian genetic influence, at its highest rate it is only 20-30%, which is no higher than the European average. {?} So with a large amount of growing evidence, it seems that the Sámi came from somewhere much closer to their current home.

You are right that the Finns had their own Aldland, but you did not explain why the Frisians counted the years referring to a sunken Aldland, which was far away and with which they had no connection. When I read the prefaces of Hidde and Liko I understand that they speak about 'our Aldland', not about a pre-Finnish Aldland.

I do not think Aldland has to be in the heart of Findasland. Alewyn makes a point (in his book, Survivors of the Great Tsunami, in case you missed his part in all this) that the priests who persecuted the Hindoos, who are Findas heartlands children, came from ANOTHER country. I have his book, I think we all do here, the original thread was based on it and he contributed to it also.

This indicates that the Magyar priests were not from this area imo but had arrived there also as they spread out.

Speaking of Alewyn, even he doesn't have it in Findas heartland. And what of Olaf Rudbeck's Atland in Sweden?

Hidde:

Skrêven to Ljuwert. Nêi âtland svnken is ... and so on.

Hidde even calls it "Atland", so nothing "Old Land" or "Our Aldland".

Likko doesn't even mention Aldland/Atland.

According to the OLB the Fryan sailors called it "Atland", and apparently they were the connection between the Fryans and Finda.

It's not an -A- but an -AE- . The OLB had a couple of A's, and the word is baerta-lând, DU: ge-boorteland or EN: land of birth.

There's no -TH- in baerta-lând.

Btw, Overwijn uses an ä, bärta-lând.

Maybe those Magiar, who were the priest caste of the Finns, were so different from the 'regular wild Finda' because the one(s) who created the OLB based those Magiar on Willem van Haren's "Magers" (in his epic poem about Friso) who were Zoroastrians.

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 the Finda people.

So the Egyptians also belonged to Finda's people. What you mean, 'complicated'?

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 Himalaya 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. But the priests, who came from another country, traced out these people and had them burnt, so that they do not dare to declare openly their creed.

Thaet folk was navt ne wild lik fêlo slachta Findas, men êlik anda Égipta-landar, hja haevath prestera lik tham aend nw hja kaerka haeve âk byldon.

They were not wild people, like most of Finda’s race; but, like the Egyptians, they have priests and also statues in their churches.

You know.... maybe these Finns with their Magiars were not Findas at all??

The OLB only says they were not as wild as most of the Findas, but more like the Egyptians (who - see earlier quote - were also Findas).

But why would the Finns with their Magiars be compaired with the Findas if they did not belong to that people?

Anyway, we have Findas east of Twiskland, we have Findas in the Punjab/India, we have Findas in Egypt...

And then add the physical description the OLB gives of Finda, the Mother: yellow skin with black hair like the manes of a horse. That doesn't look much like someone from Egypt or India, one automatically thinks of the Mongols.
