The climatically disastrous “Younger Dryas” period has been a mysterious juncture on the eve of “civilisation”. After a few thousand years of warming from the end of the last Ice Age, it became suddenly colder again shortly after 10,900 BC., while the sea level rose substantially. The Younger Dryas lasted about 1,300 years until 9,600 BC, when it became just as suddenly, much warmer.
The possible causes and exact timing of these climate shifts, and whether or not they are related to “flood myths” and “lost civilisations”, have been debated for years. This first essay of the ‘5 december project’ links up with this discussion, and will hypothesise that the date of the beginning of the Younger Dryas is hidden in the Julian calendar. The Julian calendar seems to have been part of a pre-Christian calculation model that was based on the time of a major cosmic impact on Greenland. That moment can be traced back to 5 December of the year 10,876 BC, as will become clear later on. In addition, a large impact crater under the ice of Greenland plays a key role in the calculation model for the Julian calendar.
The Julian Calendar
The Julian calendar was introduced in Rome by its namesake Julius Caesar, on 1 January 45 BC. The basis of the Julian calendar year is 365 days, plus an extra leap day every four years. Caesar was presented with the idea for his calendar in Alexandria in 47 BC, by the astronomer Sosigenes. The Julian calendar model is therefore not authentically Roman, but comes from the Middle East. Moreover, it is pre-Christian. It is therefore striking that the Julian calendar was continued without interruption by the Vatican in the early Middle Ages. This is in contrast to Islam, emerging in the seventh century, which pushed it aside in favour of a lunar calendar. It was not until 1,582 AD that an adjustment was made to the Julian calendar that led to our current Gregorian calendar.
The average Julian calendar year of 365.25 days is almost equal to a solar year of 365.2422 days. The calendar nevertheless has unexplained characteristics. For example, it is unclear what the starting point of the Christian era actually refers to. In any case, it is not the birth of the mythical Jesus: theologians estimate that event just a few years before the beginning of the era. It is also unclear why the starting point of calendar years (1 January) falls on an apparently irrelevant day, more than a week after the winter solstice.
Moreover, it is striking that new calendar days in Europe already start after an average of about 40 – 45 percent of the night has passed (from sunset to sunrise). But the fact that on the site of former Babylon in Mesopotamia, ‘midnight’ during the winter solstices (December 21 and 22) falls exactly halfway through sunset and sunrise, may be a small hint at the relevance of this city on the origin of our calendar, next to Alexandria. Babylon was the intellectual capital of the Middle East before Alexandria took over that role around 300 BC and it will play an important role in this essay.
These ambiguities regarding our calendar can nevertheless be cleared up, by linking the calendar to the beginning of the Younger Dryas.
A cosmic impact on Greenland?
Since 2007, a hypothesis has emerged among scientists linking climate change at the beginning of the Younger Dryas to cosmic impacts on the ice sheet that partially covered North America at the time. This is called the Younger Dryas Impact Hypothesis. A handy overview of existing scientific studies on the Younger Dryas Impact Hypothesis can be found on the Cosmic Tusk website.
This hypothesis follows in a sense the work of the astronomer Edmond Halley and the theologian/mathematician William Whiston in the late seventeenth century. Whiston stated in 1696 that a comet was the cause of the Biblical Flood. The American Congressman, Ignatius Donnelly, also contributed to this idea in 1883, with the book Ragnarok. In it he stated that the earth was struck by a comet around 10,000 BC., resulting in a Deluge and a climatic catastrophe. Recent scientific research suggests Donnelly was not far off the mark: Carbon dating analyses of Greenland ice cores, indicate that at least one significant cosmic impact occurred in the years around 10,880 BC. This is also the apparent beginning of the Younger Dryas.
For example, according to an extensive scientific study on the Younger Dryas Impact Hypothesis from 2018 by Wolbach et al., a peak in ammonium is visible in the ice cores around 12,828 cal BP (calibrated & Before Present). In addition, the Wolbach study refers to a study (by Petaev et al.), which shows a very large jump in platinum at the supposed onset of the Younger Dryas. It builds up from the year 12,836 cal BP over a period of 14 years, after which it reaches a clear peak in 12,822 cal BP. Then follows 7 years of reduction to 12,815 cal BP.
The notations for dates in the form of ‘cal BP’ are scientific formulations: scientists represent the radiocarbon dates as ‘calibrated before present (BP)’. By this, however, they mean the number of years ‘prior to the year 1950 of our era’. The corresponding years prior to our era, are therefore obtained by subtracting 1949 years (the year Zero does not exist) from the dates published by the scientists. The platinum peak in the ice cores for 12,822 cal BP is in this way similar to 10,873 BC. The peak in ammonium is equal to 10,879 BC.
Interesting with regard to these dates is a study of strata in the Syrian settlement of Abu Hureyra by Moore et al., published in 2018. These scientists conclude that the strata show the consequences of a cosmic impact around the year 12,825 cal BP. This midpoint is equal to 10,876 BC.
While a margin of error must be allowed for these scientific results, it thus appears that shortly after 10,880 BC. a major cosmic impact has occurred. But this may have been preceded by a number of smaller impacts, judging by the 14-year buildup of platinum in the ice cores studied by Petaev et al.. Nevertheless, on the basis of scientific research into the Younger Dryas Impact Hypothesis, the picture emerges that the cosmic impact must have been a huge catastrophe; arguably the greatest disaster in human history.
Additionally, Petaev et al. concluded in their 2013 study that the impacted object must have left a large crater on the Earth’s surface. Coincidentally, several years later, in 2018, a large impact crater was found beneath the ice of the Hiawatha Glacier in northwest Greenland. The crater has a diameter of 31 km. The ice at the bottom of the crater examined by scientists seems to point to the Younger Dryas period, but more research needs to be done. However, later in this essay it will become clear that the Hiawatha crater on Greenland is indeed the Deluge crater. But first, the dating of the supposed cosmic impact shortly after 10,880 BC, and the associated climate change, must be examined.
The Pre-Christian Calculation of the Deluge Date
The supposed starting point of the Younger Dryas shortly after 10,880 BC thus falls about 10.88 millennia before the beginning of the Christian era. The exact beginning of the Christian era is derived from the Easter table. This table was developed around 520 AD by the learned Dionysius of Exiguus to calculate the dates for the Christian Passover. But he did so on the basis of much older astronomical data that he had found in Alexandria.
The number 10.88 (millennia) as the beginning of the Younger Dryas period is striking: it corresponds to the difference of almost 10.88 days, between a solar year and a lunar year. It begs the question of whether the moment that represents the beginning of our era, and the difference between the solar and lunar years of nearly 10.88 days, together served as a mnemonic in an ancient astronomical computational model? This perhaps to date the incident (the cosmic impact, or the Deluge) that caused the Younger Dryas?
The idea that astronomers from the Middle East as far back as Classical Antiquity knew when the Younger Dryas impact had occurred, may be less strange than one might initially think. It is well known that intellectuals from Ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia had a historical perspective going back a long way. And if there’s been one moment in history that astronomers would certainly want to remember, it’s the Younger Dryas impact and its accompanying Deluge.
Fortunately, this presumed pre-Christian mnemonic for the dating of the Deluge, is easily replicated with Classical Antiquity data for solar and lunar years. It goes as follows: 365.2422 days are calculated for the solar year. For a lunar year, a Babylonian synodic month with six decimal places, of 29.530594 days, is used. This is the variant that is also used in the Hebrew calendar. When this synodic month is multiplied by twelve, a lunar year of 354.367128 days is the result.
Solar year = 365.2422
Lunar year = 354.367128
– Difference = 10.875072
Subtracting the length of a lunar year from a solar year gives the difference of 10.875072 days in total. Then the difference is multiplied by a thousand and thrown back in time as years from the beginning of the Christian era. Thus 10,875.072 years before our era is reached.
Then 0.072 years must be calculated back from the turn of the year of 10,876 / 10,875 BC. The year 10,876 BC is not a leap year, so 0.072 is multiplied by 365 days. This results in 26.28 days, which is calculated back from the turn of the year. In this way, the time 17h:16m:48s on 5 December of the year 10,876 BC. is obtained.
0.072 years x 365 days = 26.28 days
365 days – 26.28 days = 338.72 days = 5 December, 17h:16m:48s
Of course, the Julian calendar did not exist at the time. Because in this experiment, time has been calculated back to 10,876 BC from the beginning of our era, it is a fictional calendar, which is positioned exactly the same in the solar year as the Julian calendar at the exact beginning of our era.
The Julian calendar, however, rotates at an average of 365.25 days per year, 0.0078 days slower than the actual solar year of 365.2422 days. If the calendar were turned back nearly eleven millennia from the beginning of our era by an average of 365.25 days per year, then the calculated date in the Julian calendar for the Deluge would be Monday, 28 February, 10,875 BC.. The calculation below shows this. Coincidentally, the last day of February was New Year’s Eve in the Republican calendar in Rome, before Caesar introduced his calendar in 45 BC: calendar years then started on 1 March. For convenience, however, the fictitious calendar date 5 December, 10,876 BC. is used in this essay.
365.25 days – 365.2422 days = 0.0078 days
0.0078 days x 10875.072 years = 84.8255616 days
84.8255616 / 365 = 0.2324
– 10,875.072 + 0.2324 = – 10,874.8396 = 28 February, 10,875 BC.
Unexplained Characteristics of the Julian Calendar
The year 10,876 BC. corresponds extremely well with the scientific findings regarding the peaks found in platinum (10,873 BC) and ammonium (10,879 BC) and the material in Abu Hureyra (10,876 BC). But was 5 December, 10,876 BC, at 17h:16m:48s, actually the hour of the Deluge? And if so: how old was the Julian calendar model already, when the astronomer Sosigenes discussed it in 47 BC with Julius Caesar?
If the calculated time on 5 December, 10,876 BC was the moment of the cosmic impact that caused the Younger Dryas, then the aforementioned ambiguities about the Julian calendar have been cleared up in one fell swoop. They then result from the mnemonic with the difference between solar and lunar year, calculated from the moment of impact. The mnemonic terminus happened to fall late in the evening, more than a week after the winter solstice. And this particular point in time then became not only the later beginning of the Christian era, but logically also the starting point of calendar years and calendar days.
But the idea that astronomers in Classical Antiquity had exact data at their disposal about a cosmic catastrophe that had occurred more than ten millennia earlier is completely absurd from a modern historical perspective. However, there are some clear indications that this was indeed the case.
5 december 10.876 BC. is woven into various calendars
There are four indications that the calculated time on 5 december 10.876 BC is in any case a special date and hour:
1) Saint Nicholas and the 5 December date
In ancient Rome, 5 December was a feast day for the popular horned fertility god Faunus, up to the end of the fifth century. The Vatican has replaced Faunus with Saint Nicholas around 500 AD., and set the date of death of Saint Nicholas on 6 December. But specifically in the Netherlands, Saint Nicholas, which the Dutch call Sint Nicolaas, Sinterklaas or the Sint, is still celebrated in the (early) evening of 5 December.
The Sinterklaas feast seems to represent a ritual to conjure up evil: god is portrayed by the Sint and the devil by Black Pete. It is known that this ritual replaced the older demonic Black (Sinter)Klaas from the mid-nineteenth century. However, it is unclear whether the “5 December” date arrived in the Lowlands as early as Roman times or as late as the Middle Ages.
The modern Dutch word for Deluge is “Zondvloed”. This translates in English as Sinflood. But with regard to the relationship between the Sint and the Deluge, it is especially striking that the modern word “Zondvloed”, comes from the Medieval Dutch word ‘Sintvloed’. While the modern Dutch meaning of the word “Sint” is “saint”, it apparently had an ambiguous meaning in the Middle Ages, based on the Latin/French word for “saint” and a Germanic word for “sin.” In German (Sintflut) and Swedish (syndaflod), similar variants of this Germanic expression are still used to indicate the Deluge. But it is also noteworthy that the Mesopotamian moon god was named Sin, and the catastrophe, as mentioned, apparently fell on a Mo(o)nday. And Mesopotamnia is particularly relevant in the Deluge issue as we are about to see.
2) The impact time and its relationship with the number 72
The just calculated Deluge Time (or supposed impact time) 17h:16m:48s on 5 December has “something special” with the number 72 after the decimal point.
• At that time there is still 0.072 years to go until the turn of the year of 10,876 / 10,875 BC.
• The time 17h:16m:48s falls after exactly 72 percent (0.72) of a 24-hour period.
• After 16 minutes and 48 seconds, exactly 28 percent of an hour has passed. So there is still exactly 72 percent (0.72) of an hour to go.
• The Deluge Time is found by using a synodic month from Babylon with 6 decimal places in the calculation of the lunar year. And 6 x 12 months = 72.
This combination of 72s after the decimal point in one time, is in itself wonderfully coincidental. But especially intriguing is that it is the number 72. After all, the number 72 is the astronomical Precession number. Although one degree on the astronomical Precession cycle of a total of 25,776 years is actually estimated to be 71.6 years by astronomers, the rounded number 72 is often used in literature and symbolism.
71.6 years x 360 degrees = 25,776 years
The fact that the Deluge calculation hits the 72s behind the decimal point, suggests that there is something going on with this point in time in relation to the Julian calendar and our way of calculating time. Our way of calculating time, based on 24-hour days and 60-minute hours, is said to have come from Babylon, while the Babylonians had it from the Sumerians. The question is, did the Sumerians have this idea of themselves?
3) The Long Count of the Maya calendar
The Maya Long Count began on 11 August, 3,114 BC. and ended 5,125.36 years later on 21 December, 2,012 in our Gregorian calendar. The Maya Long Count is a complicated tool that in itself requires an essay to properly explain. The essay on the Maya Long Count can be found here. It is a must read for anyone who wants to understand the Deluge model. Below are a few relevant elements.
The Maya Long Count is not authentically Maya. It is an astronomical truck box, belonging to the Julian calendar and is therefore – just like the Julian calendar – originally from the Middle East. It was, however, found by Europeans among the Maya in Central America.
The number sequence of 5,125.36 years that encompasses the length of the Maya Long Count, therefore literally shows 5 December (512) and December 5th (125) before the decimal point. In addition, hidden in the length of the Maya Long Count is that those who ever built the calculation model, counted with 71.6 years for a degree on the just mentioned Precession cycle. After all, 5125.36 years equals exactly 71.6 years squared minus exactly 1.2.
5,125.36 = ( 71,6 )² – 1.2
If exactly half a Precession cycle of 12,888 years (180 x 71,6) is calculated back from the end of the Maya Long Count on 21 December, 2012, one arrives at the winter solstice of the end of 10,877 BC. This happened to be the last winter solstice before the calculated Deluge date on 5 December 10,876 BC. What a coincidence! Please note that the year Zero does not exist in our era.
71.6 years x 180 degrees = 12,888 years
2011.972 years (end of Maya cycle) – 12,888 years = 10,876.028 years BC
10,876.028 years BC = winter solstice 10.877 BC
Without deducting 1.2 years after squaring 71.6, the length of the Maya Long Count would be 5126.56 years. This number sequence gives a first hint to “the why” of the 6 December date for the Catholic death anniversary of Saint Nicholas. The sequence of the numbers in 5126.56 contain according to the same method as just before, 5 December (512) and December 6th (126) before the decimal point. And the 5 and 6 repeat themselves in that order after the decimal point. More will follow later on the 6 December issue of Saint Nicholas.
( 71,6 )² = 5126.56
Finally, about the 1.2-year deduction: Julius Caesar was killed in the Senate 1.2 years after the introduction of his calendar, at 12 noon, 15 March, 44 BC.. In a normal year of 365 days, 1.2 years consists of 438 days:
1.2 x 365 days = 365 + 73 days = 438 days
The year 45 BC however, was a leap year. Accordingly, Julius was murdered 439.5 days after the introduction of his calendar. This can be written as 438 days + 36 hours or 1.2 years + 36 hours. Given these numbers (438 and 1.2) it is therefore quite remarkable that the date 15 March, 44 BC, started at 43.8 years before the beginning of our era. Caesar was thus also murdered at 43.8 years – 12 hours, before the beginning of our era.
The number 36 is in any case a special number: the Maya Long Count of 5,125.36 years ends with it after the decimal point. But it also equals 6 x 6 and 1 to 36 add up to 666. Maybe Caesar was therefore warned by a prophet not to go to the Senate on the day of his assassination.
4) The Calendar of the Ancient Egyptians
In the aftermath of the Napoleonic campaign in Egypt around 1,800 AD, knowledge of Antiquity in Europe increased considerably. For example, the Assyriologist Julius Oppert posited in the mid-nineteenth century that astronomical observations by humans for both the Egyptian calendar based on the star Sirius and the Assyrian lunar calendar, began in the year 11,542 BC (Source: “Atlantis: the Antedelviuan World” by Ignatius Donnelly). According to the Dutch Egypt expert, Wim Zitman, the first visible rise of the star Sirius from southern Egypt took place on 19 July in 11,542 BC.
The just calculated year of the Deluge in 10,876 BC fell 666 years after 11,542 BC. That this “devilish” number stands out between the origin of the Egyptian and Assyrian calendars and the Deluge date is in itself striking. Not only does it shine extra light on the Sinterklaas rituals with the devil, but we also have a possible background for the alleged devilish character of the three sixes. In this case, “evil” would have struck 666 years after the origin of the Egyptian and Assyrian calendars in 11,542 BC. To be precise, it is about 666.4 years between the two dates.
All in all, the above analysis suggests that 5 December, 10,876 BC. has been a very special date and is woven into various ancient calendars. But there is more: in Classical Antiquity, people also knew where the earlier mentioned impact crater in Greenland – hidden under a thick layer of ice until 2018 – could be found. And the location of this crater is even part of the same calculation model that the Julian calendar is part of.
Ancient Rome and the impact crater in Greenland
The Lupercal is the mythical birthplace of Rome, where the cave of Romulus is said to have been located. The Lupercal is also where the important Lupercalia fertility festivals were held on 15 February. The statue of the Roman fertility god Faunus (the god with the 5 December feast day) was also located on the Lupercal.
The distance between the Lupercal in Rome and the large impact crater in Greenland is a curious coincidence. Using Google Maps, it is noticeable that the centre of the Hiawatha crater, is at approximately 78.726 degrees latitude. But the sacred heart of Rome is literally built at 78.726 degrees east of the meridian, which intersects the centre of the crater from north to south (at 66.242 degrees west longitude).
78.726 degrees – 66.242 degrees W = 12.484 degrees E
Namely, the Lupercal was located around 12.484 degrees east longitude. Farther south to north, the temples of Saturn (built 497 BC), Vespasian, Concordia, and Trajan also stood at 12.484 degrees east longitude. The latitude of the centre of the Hiawatha crater has thus been copied to three decimal places in the east-west distance between the sacred heart of Rome and the centre of the crater. What are the odds?
The ancients were so fond of geometry that the position of the Eternal City in relation to the crater in Greenland, may indicate that at the time of the foundation of ancient Rome, the location of the Deluge Crater was known. And that the founders of Rome wanted to reflect it in their choice of the location of their city.
What is the date of death of Saint Nicholas based on?
The calculated Deluge time at 17h:16m:48s, on 5 December, 10,876 BC, therefore requires an experiment. When it is assumed as the impact time for the crater on Greenland as local time, corresponding “local” times of the cosmic impact elsewhere on the planet can also be calculated. In this way, it can be determined where on Earth it was midnight between 5 December and 6 December at the time of the Greenland catastrophe.
A day is divided into 1,440 minutes and the earth is divided over 360 degrees of longitude; corresponding local times to the east of the crater can therefore be found by adding 4 minutes per longitude from the impact time in the crater (1440/360 = 4 ). The point from which to calculate is thus the centre of the crater on Greenland at 66.242 degrees west longitude and time 17h:16m:48s.
Thus, it was exactly midnight between 5 December and 6 December at 34.558 degrees East longitude in this experiment. This is on a line that crosses the eastern tip of Cyprus and the border of Egypt and Israel, among other things. To the west of this line it was still 5 December, but to the east it was now 6 December at the time of the cosmic impact on Greenland. In Mesopotamia, for example, it was the fortieth minute after midnight on 6 December in this experiment. At the site of Babylon at 44,42 degrees East it was thus 00h:39m:27s on 6 December, 10,876 BC.
Accordingly, the “official” date of death of Saint Nicholas on 6 December, as stated by the Church, is apparently based on the Eastern (Babylonian) date for the Deluge in this calculation model. And as such, the aforementioned Mayan number 5126.56 (without the 1.2 year deduction), is refering to western (5 December) and eastern (6 December) dates for the Deluge in the Julian calendar.
The valdity of the results of this experiment, however, seem to be confirmed by the position of Babylon in relation to the Hiawatha crater. The centre of the crater is at 307.56 degrees (out of a total of 360) when viewed from Babylon. Amazingly, if this number is rewritten as “minutes,” it shows that the centre of the crater is literally at 51.26 minutes from Babylon (out of a total of 60). It is the same sequence of numbers as in the Mayan number without 1,2 years deduction.
307.56/360 x 60 = 51.26 minutes
307.56 – 180 degrees = 127.56 degrees
Conversely, Babylon as seen from the center of the crater is at 127.56 degrees. Coincidentally, the number before the decimal point – 127 – represents Julius Caesar’s date of birth; 12 July. And it is Caesar’s date of birth that leads to the most important key to the Deluge model as will become apparent shortly.
Julius Caesar’s assassination on 15 March, 44 BC.
To the reader, the exact coordinates for the centre of the Hiawatha crater (78,726 degrees north latitude and 66,242 degrees west longitude) may have come out of the blue. Why not a thousandth of a degree north or east for the centre? After all, based on the satellite photo on Google Maps, it’s impossible to determine whether the latitude of the exact centre of the crater is 78.727 degrees or 78.726 degrees.
It is nevertheless likely that the creators of the ancient Deluge Model calculated with precisely the coordinates at 78.726 degrees north latitude and the longitude that is the present-day 66.242 degrees west longitude, as the centre of the crater. This is the case because in the Deluge model, the birth and death days of Julius Caesar were used to hide the geodesic position of the crater. The above coordinates show up with the help of Caesar as will be explained. Below first the birth and death dates for Caesar:
- Julius Caesar was murdered at 12 noon of 15 March, 44 BC.
- Julius Caesar’s date of birth was 12 July, 100 BC. In the absence of a surviving birth time, it makes sense to interpolate the time of birth and thus also adhere to 12 noon.
The calculation of the latitude of the centre of the Hiawatha crater uses the following four elements:
- The beginning of our era
- The Maya number of 5125.36
- The difference in days between the solar and the lunar year, or 10.875072 days
- Julius Caesar’s date of death
This time we take from the Maya number 5125.36, the decimal places and jump forward with 36 lunar years from the beginning of our era. This means first counting 36 calendar years forward from the beginning of our era and then counting back by 36 times 10.875072 days. This surprisingly brings us back to 5 December, but in the year 35 AD. The time on this 5 December we hit is 11h:56m:16.0512s.
36 x 10.875072 = 391.502592 – 365 = 26.502592
365 – 26.502592 = 338.4974408 days
338.4974408 days = 5 December, 11h:56m:16.0512s
Note the 512 ten-thousandths of a second where this time ends: 5-12 or 5 December! It’s like some sort of magic with numbers is happening, but in the context of the Deluge model, it confirms that we’re on the right track.
From this point on, the duration in years relative to the moment of death of Julius Caesar must be measured. Counting back to the assassination of Julius Caesar at 12 noon, on 15 March, 44 BC, yields a time span of 78,7260 years as shown below. In the Deluge Model, this number represents the latitude of the centre of the crater: 78,7260 degrees. However, it is shown in ‘years’ as a substitute for ‘degrees’.
43.7986 BC. + 34.9274 AD = 78.7260 years
The Key: Caesar’s Birth Date and the Temples in Babylon
Therefore, behind the date of Julius Caesar’s death, crucial information about Greenland’s Hiawatha crater is hidden. This is even more important for his date of birth. A trick is required with Caesar’s date of birth to determine the longitude of the centre of the crater in the Deluge model. And this trick essentially finds the most important key to the model.
The time span between Caesar’s date of birth at 12 noon, on 12 July, 100 BC, and the beginning of our era is a total of about 99.47260274 years. This span of time must first be transformed from “years to days”: 99.47260274 days.
Next, Caesar’s moment of death at 12 noon on 15 March is used as a substitute for the beginning of the Christian era. Then, counting back a total of 99.47260274 days in the calendar from 12 noon, 15 March (Caesar’s death), the substitute for Caesar’s birth time is reached. And this substitute is: 6 December, at 00h:39m:27.12s. Crucially, this happens to be the same date and time as the local impact time in Babylon calculated in a previous paragraph on 6 December, at 00h:39m:27s! What are the odds?
12h at 15 March = 73.5 days into a normal year
73.5 – 99,472602739726 = -25,972602739726
365 -25,972602739726 = 339,027397260274 days into a normal year
339,027397260274 days into a year = 00h:39m:27,12s at 6 december
The chance of this match is in fact one in 31.5 million, as there are 31.5 million seconds in a year. Relevant, however, is that the substitute for Caesar’s birth moment ends with 12 hundredths of a second. The question is therefore: with which location in ancient Babylon does this time match on the hundredth of a second?
The satellite photo of Babylon on Google Maps makes it easy to see where the great Ziggurat (temple) once stood. The centre of the great Ziggurat is clearly at 44.4208 degrees east longitude. The sites of other temples of yore are no longer visible. Thus, one has to rely on maps and models to compare their positions with the satellite image of Google Maps. A website showing maps and models of ancient Babylon is for example maquettes-historiques.net.
The temple to the Babylonian supreme god Marduk (Jupiter), the Esaglia Marduk, stood just southeast of the great Ziggurat at 44.421 degrees east longitude. The Ishtar (Venus) temple stood a little more northeasterly at 44.424 degrees east longitude. Interestingly, the east-west distance of 0.003 degrees between the Esaglia Marduk and the Ishtar (Venus) temple, corresponds in time to 0.72 seconds.
All in all, it seems to have been intended that the substitute of Caesar’s birth moment corresponds to the time of impact at the place where the Esaglia Marduk was built in Babylon. If we keep 00h:39m:27.12s, to that spot at 44.421 degrees East, we see at the same time, that the time of impact at the centre of the great Ziggurat located slightly more to the west at 44.4208 E, is 00h:39m:27.072s.
And so on Marduk’s penthouse on top of the great Ziggurat, the 72 after the decimal point appears. This was also clearly visible in the time of impact in the crater in Greenland and also in the time distance between the Esaglia Marduk and the Ishtar temple in Babylon. Note: the impact time on the centre of the great Ziggurat can be rewritten as: 40 minutes – 33 seconds + 72 thousandths of a second. In the separate essay about the Maya Long Count, this number combination (40 – 33 – 72) will return in a different way.
The Vatican has embraced the wondrous match between Julius Caesar and Marduk in the early morning of 6 December, as the date of death for their then-brand-new saint, Nicholas. The Church thus displayed its Babylonian feathers. But the trick also gets the Deluge model conclusive: the local impact times at the temple sites in Babylon on 6 December, ultimately imply that the earlier calculated impact time at 17h:16m:48s on 5 December, is appropriate at exactly 66.242 degrees west longitude (in the crater) in our modern determination of longitudes. Also in this way the east-west distance between the Ishtar temple in Babylon and the centre of the Hiawatha crater is 110,666 degrees. And so we see the three sixes again as additional confirmation that we are on the right track.
66.242 W + 44.424 E = 110.666 degrees
The obvious connection between Babylon and Rome regarding the Deluge model raises the question whether the temple of the Roman supreme god, Jupiter, also fits in there. Can Jupiter provide additional confirmation that the longitude of the crater’s centre has been correctly determined?
The Jupiter Temple was on the Capitoline Hill, slightly more west than the aforementioned Lupercal and Saturn Temples. The site in Rome where the centre of the temple to Jupiter was built stood around 12.48161 degrees east longitude. It is a total of 78,72361 degrees east of the centre of the crater. This means that (4 x 78.72361) = 314.89444 minutes must be added to the impact time in the crater at 66.242 degrees west longitude. And that has to be rewritten as time again.
Thus, it was at Jupiter’s site 22h:31m:41.6664s on the evening of 5 December during the cosmic impact on Greenland. It is striking that in the middle of the impact time, the row of numbers of the number pi (3.1416) is visible after 22. It may give a clue to why Jove was renamed into Ju(pi)ter at some point. Moreover, the row of 6664 appears after the decimal point for seconds. These four digits again add up to 22, just like the numbers in the year 10,876 BC. But 6664 is also the same row of numbers, but then from 666.4 years, which concerns the time span between the start of the Egyptian calendar on 19 July, 11,542 BC. and the Deluge date on 5 December, 10,876 BC. And 666 is a confirmation code in the Deluge model as we saw before.
The planet Jupiter is the great patron of ‘mother earth’ against comets: the Romans probably placed the statue of Jupiter in their temple at 12.48161 degrees east longitude.
The Roman Republic had no Venus temple. However, Julius Caesar had one built in 46 BC, just before the introduction of the new calendar. Caesar called himself a son of Venus. The statue of Venus in the temple stood at 12.48473 degrees east longitude.
Multiple birds with one stone
This essay kills several birds with one stone. It has become clear that the Julian calendar model has its basis in the time of a large cosmic impact on the ice cap of Greenland on 5 December in 10,876 BC. The date corresponds to the scientific findings of a large cosmic impact shortly after 10,880 BC., and the apparent beginning of the climatically cold Younger Dryas period. This massive catastrophe was probably referred to in the past as a “Deluge.”
Striking is the intuitive way in which the most important data of the ancient Deluge model can be found. The time of impact is calculated by using the difference between a solar and a lunar year in days (10.875072 days) as a substitute for millennia, and thus counting back from the beginning of the Christian era. It therefore has also become clear what the beginning of our era should represent: it is the moment that logically followed by adding 10.875072 millennia to the time of the Deluge. It is thus the other end of the mnemonic with the difference between solar and lunar year. This moment has determined the starting point of calendar years and calendar days in the Julian calendar. And in the end it was named the beginning of the Christian era by the Vatican.
The method by which the coordinates of the centre of the Hiawatha Crater in Greenland can be found is also remarkable. The coordinates are hidden behind number tricks with the birth and death dates of Julius Caesar and the locations of temples in Babylon and Rome. This immediately raises the question of whether Julius Caesar’s history handed down to us, has been tampered with to make his data suitable as a key to the Deluge model? After all, it is evident that the ‘official’ date of birth of Julius Caesar on 12 July, 100 BC, leads to the most important key of the Deluge model: only then can the calculated time of impact be linked to the longitude, which is used in the Deluge model for the centre of the Hiawatha Crater: 66,242 W in our modern calculation of longitudes.
It is also striking that the numbers 512 and 666(4) appear as confirmation codes as soon as the correct keys are used. It emphasises the intuitive nature of the Deluge model.
Additionally, it has become clear that the Maya Long Count is in reality an advanced numerical instrument that belongs to the Julian calendar. It serves to date cosmic catastrophes within the context of the Deluge model. The origin of the instrument can be traced at least as far back as ancient Mesopotamia. But please read the essay with the more extensive treatise on the Maya calendar: surprisingly enough, it also sheds light on the origin of the ‘meter’ as a measure of length.
And finally, it is probably interesting for Dutch people to know what their Sinterklaasfeast on 5 December refers to: it is the date and time of the Sin(t) Flood. This while for the Catholic Flemish, their celebration of Saint Nicholas in the morning of 6 December refers to the local time of impact at the site of Babylon. The Sinterklaas celebrations on 5 and 6 December are thus references to a western and an eastern date for the catastrophe on Greenland in 10,876 BC.
How is this possible?
The idea that astronomers in Babylon, and later in Rome and Alexandria, had at their disposal an accurate calculation model for the Deluge, is curious. After all, it is a catastrophe based on a cosmic impact far above the Arctic Circle on Greenland, which had occurred more than 10,000 years earlier. And of which the impact crater only found in 2018 in modern times, has probably also been under ice for almost that long. It turns the existing historical narrative upside down. The fact that part of this calculation model was found among the Maya in Central America also raises questions.
The existence of the Deluge model suggests that a civilisation existed during the Younger Dryas that could register the cosmic impact. Plus, afterwards, was able to explore the crater before the ice covered it again. That is apparently the most reasonable start of an explanation for the fact that the data for the impact time and the centre of the crater could be transmitted as far back as Classical Antiquity. A tantalising question then is whether this civilisation might have deposited something for us at the crater’s coordinates before the ice covered it again?
Our way of calculating time comes from Babylon and Sumer. The question is, however, whether the 24-hour, and 60-minute-hour construction could possibly have originated in the lost civilisation of the Younger Dryas? The same is true, of course, for distance calculations based on a division of the Earth into 360 degrees. The question of how old the Julian calendar model and the associated Maya cycle are and who created them, is at this point also difficult to answer.
And then there’s another question: how likely is it that no one in the Vatican knows that the Christian calendar is based on the date of the Deluge? And who else knows about it? It is obvious that even in modern times there have always been those who have known, probably also outside the Vatican. Have the temple builders of ancient Babylon and Rome no heirs?
As George Carlin once said: it’s a big club, and you ain’t in it. However, the introduction of Google Maps has made it possible for ordinary people to zoom in very accurately on satellite photos from behind their PCs with the corresponding geodetic coordinates on the screen. It has made the type of research outlined in this essay a lot easier. But the discovery by scientists of the Hiawatha Crater in Greenland in 2018, was ultimately essential to actually unravel the Deluge model. And so for the reader of this essay now applies: it may be a big club, but you’re now in the know too.
