The Missing Planet Rahab
The Late Author David Flynn
The late author David Flynn in his book, Cydonia: The Secret Chronicles of Mars provides a fascinating explanation for a myth actively propagated today by Richard C. Hoagland and Mike Bara that civilization was first birthed on Mars and later came to earth. Exactly when this interplanetary transit took place was not precisely specified by author/researcher Flynn; but his view considers the possibility that this happened anywhere from several million years ago to as recently as 100,000 to 10,000 years BC. In effect, we could refer to this voyage of intelligent humanoid creatures as a relocation event – a transfer from Mars to Earth. But MARS as the source of the species which birthed civilization may not be entirely accurate; for neither was Mars the actual location of these intelligent beings, nor were they expresslyhuman.
The Secret Chronicles of Cydonia
For the testimony of the Bible, as interpreted by Flynn, purports civilization developed first in our solar system on a planet named Rahab, subsequently destroyed by a massive cataclysm on a cosmic scale. In other words, the history of how civilization developed on earth cannot be told without first understanding why civilization arose on Rahab/Mars, and why its inhabitants had to desert that planet to avoid the cataclysm – and then relocate to Earth. Furthermore, as we will discuss, the inhabitants were much more than mere mortals.
Where in the Bible do Flynn and others see proof supporting this theory? In two places. First, in Isaiah 51:9 we read: “Awake, awake, put on strength, O arm of the Lord; awake, as in the ancient days, in the generations of old. Art thou not it that hath cut Rahab, and wounded the dragon?” Likewise, in Psalm 89:10: “Thou hast broken Rahab in pieces, as one that is slain; thou hast scattered thine enemies with thy strong arm.” Traditional scholarship sees Rahab as a reference to Egypt. However, that conclusion may not be all that the Bible is saying through these statements. We need to look at what we know about Mars, its moons, and the highly irregular objects between Mars and Jupiter that scientists believe came to be through a cosmic explosion is the distant past – rocky objects known in astronomy as the asteroids.
The science behind the “Rahab speculation” proposes Mars was in fact a moon of the planet Rahab (also referred to by some sources as Planet X and yes, even the planetKrypton!) There are several factors leading to this conclusion about Mars once being a mere moon to another planet. It is supposed that Rahab once held the orbit now occupied by the asteroids (aka the so-called “asteroid belt”). Mars’ two moons (Phobos and Deimos– meaning fear and terror) might have been larger asteroids eventually caught in the snare of Mars’ much larger gravitational pull. Their planet-moon(s) connection came about sometime after the destruction of Rahab – when Phobos and Deimos settled into a “symbiotic” relationship with Mars. Adding to this particular argument’s weight: Mars’ gravity isn’t evenly distributed; that is, it is lop-sided, resembling the out-of-balance gravitic density of our own moon. This suggests that long ago Mars faced its much larger planet partner 100% of the time (it revolved around the planet once each time it completed an orbit). So like our moon, its rotation was perfectly synchronized with its orbit. Observers that existed on Rahab (assuming it once in fact existed as a planet with Mars its “moon-mate”), would have seen only one side of Mars, just as we see only one side of our moon from Earth.
A Self-Portrait by “Curiosity”
But this alternative astronomy is hardly the main part of the story. Flynn’s supposition: Earth’s civilization didn’t begin on our planet – it began on Rahab. Structures were built on Mars – probably observable by the postulated “Rahabians” – perhaps to serve as monuments to the “principals” or “kings” of Rahab. Then sometime, maybe one to three million years ago (or as recently as a mere 10,000 to 100,000 years ago), something horrible happened. A cataclysm struck Rahab, destroying the planet, and sending massive amounts of water and debris into space. Being nearby, Mars was struck – inundated with debris and water – destroying many of these structures and causing massive changes to the planet’s surface. This catastrophic possibility appears to be confirmed by the most recent discoveries of the Mars Roving Laboratory, the Curiosity, which landed on Mars in August 2012. In fact, scientists now seem convinced that at one time the arid surface of Mars’ was covered by water. Why so little sign of water today? Its gravity was (and remains) so sleight that most of this water vaporized rather quickly (perhaps over only a few thousand years), while a small portion of the water seeped into the ground and froze, creating a permafrost layer. So it is for this reason we could say (if inclined to make puns, which I am), Mars can’t hold its water. Thus, it is also logical to deduce that if Mars had water on its surface a long, long time ago, it must have come from somewhere else. This possibility may also suggest that the Earth could have been likewise affected by a “water-attack” from outer space – perhaps inferring that the earth was once devastated by a massive flood stemming from the same catastrophe destroying Rahab and vastly altering the topology (surface) of Mars as well as our home – the Earth.
According to adherents of this theory (that an advanced civilization once existed on Rahab/Mars), many structures on the Martian surface are artificial – not composed by nature, but by intelligent beings. Therefore, they are artifacts. (As stated in an earlier chapter, they are literally “facts of art”). Today these structures can now be detected as our vision of Mars improves – thanks to the many man-made satellites which orbit the planet and rove its surface. Moreover, both types of robotic space explorers have sent photos – tens of thousands of them – to give us a “bird’s eye view” and an “up close and personal” picture of the Red Planet. Indeed, it was from a photo sent back to earth in 1976 by the Viking I spacecraft, that the non-famous “face on Mars” was first discerned. Was it a trick of light and shadow? Was it merely an illusion caused by our “pattern finding” minds (a cosmic Rorschach test – i.e., “what do you see in the inkblot”)? Or was it really an artifact of structures which once existed in perfect condition on Mars?
Why Was Cydonia at the Center of Things?
The face on Mars, and its surrounding area, known as Cydonia, is particularly intriguing because the “face of Mars” is located at the zero meridian as established by Giovanni Schiaparelli, the first great map maker (aka cartographer) of Mars. Schiaparelli, a Jesuit priest, published his work toward the end of the nineteenth century, building on the work on another Jesuit priest Pietro Secchi. This means that the great Martian cartographer Schiaparelli coincidentally (or not so coincidentally!) laid out the longitudinal lines on the Martian surface, anticipating that Cydonia (where the face of Mars is located) would be the central point from which everything else on the Martian surface should be reckoned. That is to say, 100 years before science gave us tools to “see” the face on Mars, something told Schiaparelli to pick this exact location as “zero point longitude.” What possessed him to be so precise, if not in actual fact so prescient, regarding finding evidence of life on Mars? Was this purely a coincidence? Or did Schiaparelli know something that most of his peers didn’t? This aspect of Martian cartography stands as an essential catalyst for Flynn’s amazing theory.
The Map of Mars by Schiaparelli
From Flynn’s perspective the face on Mars accompanies other provocative features in the nearby Martian neighborhood. Most notably, these “artifacts” include the five-pointed pyramid, Hoagland’s “City”, and another feature – the Tholus – which appears to be a spiral mound on Mars mirroring the geometry of a massive spiral mound called Silbury Hill near Stonehenge in England). To Flynn, this is proof enough that the names ascribed by Schiaparelli – based as they were on classic Greek mythology – were not randomly selected. Although not provable, it would appear Schiaparelli had access to very specificancient knowledge from beyond this world. Flynn asserts Schiaparelli understood the ancient wisdom, having an extensive classical education from the Jesuits. This knowledge would have included an understanding of the “ancient mysteries” managed and kept secret by the so-called Mystery Religions of the ancients (e.g., Eleusis, Samothrace, and Crete).
However, did Schiaparelli believe that Homo sapiens were Martian before they were Earthling? That isn’t clear of course – and Flynn doesn’t make such a daring assertion. Nevertheless, Flynn purports that Schiaparelli likely believed that civilization originated on Mars BEFORE its genesis on earth. Given the 150 year-old connection between the Jesuits and the Vatican Observatory (well documented in Tom Horn’s and Cris Putnam’s recent blockbuster tome, Exo-Vaticana), one wonders just exactly what the Vatican knows about Mars. Could it have included secret content hidden deep within ancient Mystery Religions with which Jesuit scholars are familiar?
Whether Schiaparelli in fact believed in this “ancient wisdom,” Flynn clearly believed that he did. However, in a somewhat predictive adaptation (given his orientation to the Bible as God’s revelation to humankind), Flynn didn’t assume the originators of civilization wereHomo sapiens. Rather, he believed they were angelic. In other words, angels once called Rahab home. Furthermore, Flynn goes so far as to indicate that a specific type of angel – a cherub – was the ruler of Rahab. Of course this begs the question, “Who was this planet’s powerful ruler?” The reader might already have guessed the answer: According to Flynn, the cherub of choice was none other than the anointed most-high angel, Lucifer. We recall that in the Bible, the book of Ezekiel there is a famous, oft-cited passage depicting Yahweh’s ancient adversary, Lucifer who “walked among the fiery stones.” What might the fiery stones be? Flynn proposes as have others, that they are the planetary “lights” which burn so bright in the night sky. “Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire.” (Ezekiel 28:14) Hoping from planet to planet would be quick work for angelic beings who may have reigned in times before humanity came into being. We don’t know this with any certainty, but the possibility is not only titillating, it may help explain a number of mysteries buried deep in our past.
The Real Meaning of the Mystery Religions
As mentioned in the previous paper on Walt Disney and Werner von Braun, despite its frequent public denials, Freemasonry is linked to the Knights Templar and (at the very least) linked doctrinally through them to the ancient “Mystery” Religions. The well-known gods of the Greeks and Romans (Zeus/Jupiter, Aphrodite/Venus, and Ares/Mars) were initially based upon older, Egyptian gods (Osiris, Isis, and Horus). However, the Egyptian gods were not themselves the origin of these classic Greek and Roman mythological deities. Scholars all agree that before there were Egyptian gods, there were Mesopotamian gods existing at least from the time of Abraham – and more likely from the times before Noah – with the people known as the Arcadians.
- The Ancient Stele of Hammurabi
By definition this would assume that the Arcadians lived before the flood of Noah. Likewise, if the myths of the Arcadians influenced the development of post-flood deities in the pantheon of the Egyptians, the question is, “How was this knowledge passed down?” To be more specific, “Did the myths survive the flood through the stories told by Noah and his lineage (the survivors of the flood)?” “Were there Arcadians that survived the flood?” “Were there records (either the Sumerian clay tablets translated and made famous by Zecharia Sitchin – or records from ancient stele made of stone) which the survivors of the flood or their descendants discovered?”
Flynn describes the originators of the classic gods as the Pelasgians, of which there are many references in both Greek and Roman histories. Flynn describes the origin of the Pelasgians as follows:
The mystery schools were founded by the Pelasgians, the ancestors of the Phoenicians (Sidonians), and the original inhabitants of Arcadia. According to Aristotle, thePelasgians (sea peoples in Greek) were an ancient race that occupied parts of Greece from the time before there was a moon in the sky; for this reason they were calledProselenes (literally “before the moon”). [Hippolytus refers to a legend that “Arcadiabrought forth Pelasgus [progenitor of the Pelasgians], of greater antiquity than the moon.” Plutarch wrote in The Roman Questions: “There were Arcadians of Evander’s following, the so-called pre-Lunar people.” Apollonius of Rhodes mentioned the time “when not all the orbs were yet in the heavens, before the Danai and Deukalion races came into existence, and only the Arcadians lived, of whom it is said that they dwelt on mountains and fed on acorns, before there was a moon.” The Pelasgians existed long before the cataclysm of “Noah’s Flood” (the aion alignment of 10,948 B.C. [according to Flynn]), as Apollonius suggested, before the flood of Deukalion and [his wife]Pyrrha [daughter of Pandora]. Remnants of the Pelasgians survived the cataclysmic shifting of the aions, preserving that knowledge of the former aions (when knowledge descended to the earth from the heavens) by establishing mystery schools, under various names, throughout the Mediterranean.
According to Flynn, the notion there was ancient knowledge that “came down from heaven” (specifically referencing the knowledge brought to humankind by the “Watchers”, i.e., fallen angels, described in the apocryphal Book of Enoch), was the focus of the Mediterranean Mystery Schools. Flynn summarizes the importance of these secret schools to explain the origin of civilization:
The ancient mystery schools—the repositories of knowledge from the earlier aions—originated on the Mediterranean islands Samothrace, Eleusis and Crete (7 C[entury] B.C.—4 C[entury] A.D.). Though there is considerable speculation about this religion, accounts exist from ancient historians who claim to have witnessed rites, and to have petitioned to be initiated into the mysteries themselves. The mystery schools preserved the knowledge of the ancient world, as Plato described, through those ancient cycles of cataclysms by fire and water that affected the advancement of civilization. Although that secret knowledge was never revealed to the common citizen, clues were left in the writings of initiates, philosophers and poets. Among those who underwent the rites of the mystery school, according to historical record, were Aristotle, Sophocles, Plato, Cicero and a number of a Papyri Fragments (c. 3rd C[entury] A.D.):
Flynn’s research and conclusions rely heavily upon detailed histories of these classic gods as understood and explained by the civilizations that worshipped and revered them. The history of the “Red Planet” is connected to the Egyptian god Horus, who was the deity that inspired Rome’s Mars and Greece’s Ares. (Recall the relevance of Horus to Americans: the “eye of Horus”, a familiar Freemason symbol, adorns the pinnacle of the Great Pyramid as pictured in America’s Great Seal – which we see daily as the design dominating the back of our One Dollar Bill). The “now” earth-bound gods Horus and his father Osiris were connected to the (supposed) distinct act of bringing civilization to humanity from heaven – obviously paralleling Flynn’s contention about the angels of Rahab:
The Martian god of Greek myth, Ares, was an ancient founder of civilization, before he became associated with warfare. Like the Romans, the Greeks considered Mars a god responsible for having introduced crop growing and domestication of animals, both necessary for community and cities. The worship of the god from the planet Mars as a builder was wide spread in the ancient world. The Egyptians referred to the planet Mars as Har detcher, Horus the Red, son and reincarnation of his father Osiris. The name ‘Horus’ is ‘face’ in Egyptian; Har detcher was literally ‘the red face of Osiris.’Osiris was considered the founder of Egypt’s architecture and civilization: ‘Of Osiris they say that, being of a beneficent turn of mind, and eager for glory, he gathered together a great army, with the intention of visiting all the inhabited earth and teaching the race of men…after establishing Egypt, Osiris traveled abroad teaching the skills of building and society to the men scattered across the earth.” 
Divine Wall Builders from the Land of Canaan
The connection between knowledge and building is at the core of Freemasonry. The “compass and square” are their universal symbols along with the tracing board, all tools of the Masonic craft. Another intriguing connection resides in the obvious contradiction of the “civilizing” of humanity attributed to these gods with the oft-repeated evil known asfratricide – a paradoxical flaw to say the least. The evidence appears that these gods were two-faced (like the god Janus, the god of gates, doors, and time – which incidentally reminds us of the face on Cydonia!) In effect, there was a human (or at least simian) side and there was a leonine (lion-like) side to the face on Mars. Moreover, Flynn isn’t the only researcher who said so. This is also the view of Graham Hancock and especially Richard C. Hoagland, the contemporary mouthpiece for life on Mars). Flynn makes this point plain:
[Osiris’] consort and sister Isis remained in Egypt as a resource for the skills of society. Fratricide is repeated in myths associated with the building of walls, cities, and temples. Osiris, the builder-god and founder of Egyptian civilization, was murdered by his brother Set; Romulus, the builder-god (Mars Quirinus) and founder of Roman civilization murdered his brother Remus; Cain, the first cultivator of crops and the first builder of a city found in the Bible, murdered his brother Abel. Cain was the ancient ancestor of the Canaanites according to the Bible [although the land Canaan was named after Canaan the son of Ham]; the Canaanites were Phoenicians, that is, Sidonians.
A View of Mount Hermon in Northern Israel/ Syria
From Flynn’s perspective the connection between the builder god Mars and the planet Mars is a testimony to the descent of “gods” in ancient times from elsewhere in our solar system, possibly the Red Planet but more likely Rahab as mentioned at the outset. To repeat myself, in contradistinction to the opinion of Hoagland and other ancient astronaut theorists, these beings weren’t mere mortal humans – they were immortal angels. Therefore, it would be a misconception to identify them as extraterrestrial. They were the “men of renown” – so-called gods upon which classic mythology is based. They were the originators (literally the fathers) of the giants, the Nephilim, as mentioned in Genesis 6:4 and expanded in considerable detail in the apocryphal Book of Enoch. The fallen angels descended upon the earth at Mount Hermon (in the area known today as the Golan Heights of Israel/Syria). From this point of origin, they began to disseminate their knowledge of civilization and to attempt to reshape humanity into their image – rather than the image of Yahweh. The fallen angels and Lucifer seek to usurp God’s plan – and corrupt the crown of creation – humankind, made in the image of God.
Mount Hermon is on the northeastern border of Israel and Lebanon, its melting snow the source for the Jordan River – the name Jordan is derived from the root of Jared and means ‘place of the descent.’ The actual meaning of Hermon is from a primitive Hebrew root word ‘khaw-ram’; to destroy utterly, exterminate or consecrate, devote and dedicate for destruction. At the base of this mountain in Lebanon are the settlements of the oldest cities in the world, established it would seem immediately upon the descent of the Nephilim from Mount Hermon. This was the land that came to be called ‘Sidonia.’ [Sidon was the first born of Canaan’s eleven sons, a number significant to the Bible as it represents disorganization, falling one short of a number of reverence, the number twelve].
According to Flynn, there are substantial references to these gods from mythology that rely on more than mere inference. The allusions parallel the Bible’s testimony:
The ‘mighty men’ described in this passage [Genesis 6:4] are called in HebrewGibborim or geber from gabar (to be strong); these Hebrew Gibborim are contemporary with the demi-gods and semi-divine heroes of Sumerian and Greek myth. This is the origin of the Kibborim and Kabiroi known throughout the Mediterranean as the gods of the Pelasgians, and their descendants the Sidonians.
For David Flynn, the connection with Cydonia on Mars and Sidonia on Earth is much more than a case of coincidental spelling. As stated earlier, he alleges Schiaparelli knew about the ancient legends and may have had specific insight from the legacy of the Mystery Schools that “Martians” and “Cydonians” are literally related genetically. The notion that angels and humans mated in ancient times has, of course, gained widespread credence among many of today’s evangelical writer/researchers (such as L.A. Marzulli, Steve Quayle, Tom Horn, Gary Stearman, and this author). However, this raises a question of “cause and effect.” That is, “Does this mean that the myth of civilization’s having begun on Mars necessarily connects to the descent of the fallen angels on Mount Hermon?” Moreover, “Does it prove that the Nephilim are an incarnation artifact, so to speak, of the cosmic relocation effort of angels evacuating Rahab/Mars – a relocation necessitated upon learning their habitation was to be destroyed, perhaps as judgment by Yahweh?”
Coins from Kydonia
But these aren’t the only relevant questions – there are several others we must ask: “Were the giants of old, some of whose corpses are literally surfacing today in North America, related to the Sidonians of Phoenicia?” (Readers interested in researching giants are referred to L.A. Marzulli’s new book, On the Trail of the Nephilim or Steve Quayle’s new book, True Legends). “Were the Canaanite giants discussed in the historians of Rome the offspring of the ‘Martians’?” If the answer to these questions is affirmative, then we could get even more specific in our interrogation: “How much Martian genetic material actually infected the Sidonians who were associated with Tyre and Sidon (Sidonia), Canaan (the land named after Canaan, the cursed son of Ham and grandson of Noah), and later the land at the base of Mount Hermon, where the Danites settled?” Flynn argues there is a direct and necessary connection. We read:
The ‘Cydonians’ lived on the west side of the island of Crete and even today the name of the province around Chania is Kydonia. Cydonia is mentioned by Homer as one of the most important Cretan cities, called, like its Canaanite counterpart, the ‘the mother of all Cretan cities.’ The port city of Cydonia according to legend was named after its founder and king Kydon, who according to the majority of mythological chroniclers, had migrated to Crete from Sidonia or from the Greek coast of Boeotia founded by Cadmus the Sidonian. Diodorus [a Greek historian writing between 60 and 30 BC] described Crete as the origin of the Mystery Schools of the Pelasgians, that is, the ancestors of the Sidonians of Phoenicia. [Emphasis mine]
To draw out the implications of Flynn’s thesis: The knowledge of civilization’s origin – the planet Rahab and (presumably) its moon Mars where angels once dwelt – was passed down to humanity because of the breeding of fallen angels with human women. The offspring, the Nephilim, were proof that angels did create hybrid offspring. It seems logical then to conjecture that these half-human, half-angel offspring propagated the stories of Martian civilization through their progeny. That is, we know about the original angelic habitat because fallen angels and their offspring, the Nephilim, told humanity about their heritage!
Handing Down the Legend to Future Generations
However, I argue that both stories may be true but are not necessarily connected. In other words, the veracity of one does not prove the other. Likewise, one could be proven false while the other remains true. Each account has to be considered on its own merits.
To be more specific, the supposed fact that some Nephilim survived the flood would not be the only means for descendants of the Arcadians, Pelasgians, or Cydonians to transmit their stories to future generations. To be clear, we really don’t know whether the stories were communicated (1) directly by the hybrid offspring which may have survived the flood, (2) by the descendants of Noah who lived through the great flood and told these tales to their children and grandchildren, OR (3) because written records (cuneiform tablets, various steles, extant papyri?) were discovered after the flood by humanity – giving rise to the legend of Mars as the genesis of civilization – and therefore, as Flynn purports becoming the basis for a key tenet of the Eleusinian and Cretan Mystery Religions.
Whether angels begat children through human women after Noah’s flood or not, Flynn’s argument could still hold water (pun not intended in this instance). Certainly the possibility exists that some Cydonian giants hailing from places beyond earth, may have survived the flood to continue their hybrid breeding program. On the other hand, if giants reappeared after the flood, whether due to Nephilim genetics being passed through one of the sons or wives of Noah or because fallen angels continued the process of procreating hybrid beings, the flood of Noah apparently did not terminate the cross-breeding program. Although sorely tempted, we can examine this debate no further in this short paper.
To conclude: it may well be that angels came to earth long before the creation of humankind – and obviously before the flood of Noah. As the Book of Enoch conveys, these creatures may have been the teachers of civilization to humankind (as well as metallurgy, cosmetics, and especially warfare). After the flood, all that survived may only have been legends of their activity. However, this is not the only possible explanation of the connection between Mars, Freemasonry, and the stories of antiquity that explain where the art of building “defensible cities” came from and how civilization developed on this planet. Indeed, a more likely explanation exists for where the mythology of civilizations’ foundations originated. This explanation still connects the Cydonians, the land of Canaan, angelic tampering, and the god Mars (after whom the Red Planet was named). The only hint we will offer to the reader, merely as a tease, is that the biblical character Nimrod is at the center of this alternative theory. We will turn to that biblical possibility in a future article.
 This cataclysm is discussed in detail by Joseph P. Farrell in his book, The Cosmic War, and his other books devoted to the meaning of the pyramids of Giza. Most recently, Farrell has expanded his views in the book, The Grid of the Gods. Farrell considers various scientific arguments pinpointing the cataclysm to be about 2.5 million years ago. However, like David Flynn, Farrell argues that many ancient writings, not just the Bible, testify to a vital connection between Mars and Earth, and to some manner of divine or angelic beings that have been actively engaged in influencing civilization on earth. His book, Babylons’ Banksters, also explores this hypothesis. Farrell proposes that the infamous family Rothschild and their design on the world’s monetary system is not a Jewish conspiracy, but a Babylonian one. Farrell connects the conspiracy to Nimrod and notes, “Alphonse Mayer Rothschild and Clarice Sebag-Montefiore had a son, born in 1922, to whom they gave the peculiarly Jewish-Christian – “Babylonian” (actually “Biblical,” because there were neither “Jews” nor “Christians” known as such in that era) name of Albert Anselm Salomon Nimrod Rothschild (which means “red shield”).” See http://www.henrymakow.com/a_brief_review_of_farrells_bab.html #sthash.rkKYxqy5.dpuf
 That’s why there is a “front side” and “back side” to our moon – a back-side that we never see. Sometimes the back side of the moon is referred to as “the dark side of the moon” but that is a misnomer. When we experience a “new moon”, the back side of the moon is fully illuminated – we just aren’t in the right position to see it.
 The craters and topological features of Mars suggest that only one hemisphere was devastated when struck by the cataclysm “all at once”. This would be consistent with a unidirectional catastrophe emanating from a nearby cosmic source within our solar system. It would also explain the asteroid belt.
 Scientists are suggesting that the Martian water existed billions, not millions or thousands of years ago. The surface features of Mars were formed in part through this watery condition. However, the “billions of year’s speculation” may presume a totally naturalistic explanation that may be completely wrong.
 The so-called Gap Theory suggests that a cataclysm happened after Genesis 1:1 and before Genesis 1:2 that caused the Earth to enter into a chaotic state, from which Yahweh “re-ordered” the condition of the Earth and “re-created” the earth according to a new design, post-angelic rebellion and the destruction of Rahab. The Lord had to separate the “waters above” from the “waters below” – allowing light from the Sun to make its way through to the Earth, and so on.
 A tholus is a dome, spiral mountain, or “rotunda”.
 A stele is an upright stone, typically taller than it is wide, that contains an inscription to memorialize an event of historic significance. Such methods to record history exist globally, from Egyptian to the Mayan empires as the pictures in this article showcase.

 Reflecting on the discussion in the prior article, we should wonder if Wernher von Braun likewise understood that Mars might hold the key to humanity’s past. The fascination Walt Disney held for Mars also could have had a mystical foundation. Many allege Disney was a Freemason, but the evidence only demonstrates he was a member of their “youth” organization, DeMolay.
 The Danites were likely known by the Greeks as the Danians whose thousand ships were launched in a quest to reunite Paris and Helen of Troy (the face that could launch a thousand ships!) The Danians may have given rise to Aeneas, the ancestor/grandfather of Romulus and Remus, the founders of Rome. The late J.R. Church provided an outstanding study on this subject in his last book, Daniel Reveals the Bloodline of the Antichrist. Church believed that the Danites were in fact the descendants of the Hebrew tribe of Dan. Antichrist, argues Church, was a Roman, a Greek, and a Jew. All three races are associated with “the little horn” in Daniel.

 Most researcher/authors, who subscribe to the view that angels fathered hybrid children before the flood, contend fallen angels continued this practice AFTER the flood as well. Giants occupied the land of Canaan and were the primary reasons the Children of Israel refused to conquer the land (until they had experienced a punishment of wondering through the wilderness for 40 years). If all flesh was destroyed in the flood of Noah (including the Nephilim), where did these post-flood giants come from? This theory is known as the “multiple incursion” theory. Angels bred with humans before and AFTER the flood of Noah. In opposition to this theory, researcher/author Rob Skiba believes the giants of Canaan may be traced to DNA associated with Ham’s wife which emerged in their descendants post-flood. Skiba indicates the Scripture chronicles numerous giants through Ham’s line in the land of Canaan (the land of Sidon!) Either way (one incursion before the flood, or multiple, ongoing incursions), the argument is challenging to sustain. Arguing the Nephilim are human/angelic hybrids is difficult not just because of the supernatural element (presuming angels exist), but because it assumes angels and humans can procreate hybrid offspring. Nevertheless, the reader should remember: all mythologies of our world assert gods intermarried with humans. The term demi-god is built upon this notion.
 However take note: the Bible indicates that all “flesh was destroyed”, both humanoid and animal. So if Yahweh’s plans to halt the cross-breeding program were foiled this easily by angels – procreating once again hybrids after the flood – one wonders why Yahweh determined to destroy the world to “purify” the human genome in the first place. It suggests that Yahweh was easily outsmarted by the fallen angels. Of course, that is only part of the story! And drawing this conclusion would be problematic for many theological reasons.
