EDITOR’S NOTE: This is the first entry into a series on the works and discoveries of David Eric Flynn, a modern Christian genius who died at the age of 49 this past January 22, 2012 after a short battle with cancer. For nearly two decades David published original and groundbreaking research on his renowned Watchers Website.
I remember the first time I met David Flynn. It was the early days of the Internet and I had just started a little email newsletter that would eventually become the Raiders News Network. He introduced himself to me via email and to his Watchers Website, which I would pour over for many hours in the years ahead. I watched as his breakthrough material started popping up on shows like the PAX Television program Encounters: What is Really on Mars, on Coast-to-Coast AM, on Strange Universe, as well as in books, including the best-selling 1996 UFOs- and Genesis-6-themed book Alien Encounters by popular Christian researchers Dr. Chuck Missler and Dr. Mark Eastman.
As David and I became friends and colleagues throughout the late 90s and 2000s, I observed the steady evolution of his work, realizing that here was a man who often viewed the world in a way the rest of us could barely discern. On more than one occasion I was amazed by his ability to peel back the onion layers in order to discover what lay hidden deep inside a mystery. I mentioned to my wife and staff on more than one occasion how much he reminded me of the character George Malley in the 1996 moviePhenomenon, which depicted a good-natured man whose life is suddenly changed when he sees a strange flash of light just before his thirty-seventh birthday. Almost immediately he becomes aware of “phenomena,” which everyday people do not see or comprehend. “He predicts an earthquake over the course of the following days, and starts to experience an extraordinary form of genius-level intelligence, easily absorbing vast amounts of information, formulating new, revolutionary ideas,” Wikipedia notes of George Malley.  Like this movie character, the world around David Flynn could not help be intrigued with his insights into Bible prophecy, sacred geometry, symbolism, numerology, and gematria, which seem to spring forth for our generation with brilliant perceptiveness, building for David a worldwide following of people who appreciated him so much. Sadly for us all (and ironically, also like the movie character), David was stricken with an aggressive brain tumor that took his life this past January 22nd, 2012.
I still recall the day David emailed me and said, “Tom, I think I may have found something important.” As he described what would later become the basis of his bestseller Temple at the Center of Time: Newton’s Bible Codex Finally Deciphered and the Year 2012, I realized that not since his work on Cydonia: The Secret Chronicles of Mars and his breakthrough articles on Mt. Hermon, Roswell and the year 2012 (both included in the upcoming David Flynn Collection) had David broke through to such fresh ground. He needed to carefully guard what he discovered, I thought. You see, I had witnessed too many times when David’s work was used by other so-called experts (sometimes word-for-word) who neglected to give him credit. David never made a fuss about such things, but it bothered me deeply, and I told him so. In fact, the day he emailed me about his Temple discovery, I called and spoke with him on the phone. I listened as he described his findings and how he was considering sharing the discovery with a celebrity speaker who had stolen his material before. I suggested instead that he put the information down in a book and, at least once, take credit for his labor. I don’t think David worried much about “getting credit,” modest as he was, but he agreed to let me publish the unique treatise (which discloses, among other things, knowledge of time and space that obsessed Sir Isaac Newton) that ultimately has become what many consider to be his Magnum Opus—Temple at the Center of Time: Newton’s Bible Codex Finally Deciphered and the Year 2012.
I know you will be blessed reading segments of his insightful work in this new series, as I was just to know the man who discovered them.
