So what is Baalbek Lebanon all about? If the people of Baalbek feared Baal alias Jupiter could this sky god have driven their destiny? Both myth and legend go much further to support the malignant role of Jupiter and other planets in Mankind’s affairs. Remember Jupiter goes by many names. In ancient Phoenicia he is Baal of our Baalbek. In Israel he is Zedek. In Egypt Amon. In Iran he is Mazda. In Babylon Enlil. In India he is Shiva. In Greece the mighty Zeus king of the Gods. Jupiter in all cases is the supreme sky god. The supreme planet.
In all these cases he is blamed for hurling massive thunderbolts against the Earth and causing earthquakes. Could this of happened? Today Jupiter/Baal hurls thunderbolts at its moon Io. Thus interplanetary discharges do occur. In a near approach of Jupiter perhaps Earth too was subject to the sky god’s wrath?
The ancient Greek historian, Homer in the Odyssey, specifically blames Baal / Zeus / Jupiter for hurling thunderbolts and destroying Troy with earthquakes. Baal shattered the Earth. That is why the citizens of Baalbek feared and worshiped this Sky God. They trembled under his destruction and even offered human sacrifice to calm him.
In another ancient text from the Greek Hesiod, we find Baal / Zeus responsible for giving birth to the planets Mercury and Venus. Is this at all possible? Let us investigate. What do we know about Jupiter? Certainly next to the Sun it is the largest mass in the Solar System. But Jupiter’s’ most salient driver is its great red spot, four times the size of Earth. This constantly swirls as a giant vortex sucking up all clouds that are in its way. Moreover it spits them out. If Jupiter can absorb comets such as shoemaker levy 9 can it in its turn spit them out as it does the clouds on its surface? Remember the scientific principle “to every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.
Hesiod claimed Jupiter gave birth to Venus and Mercury. Is Jupiter about to regurgitate Shoemaker Levy 9 as a new comet or indeed as Velikovsky claims a pre planet? Is it only a matter of time until mankind suffers another cosmic attack? Jupiter even now has captured a smaller comet. Will this in its turn disintegrate and be swallowed. In fact does Earth have the power like Jupiter to attract comets and have them impact on our surface. In the past we have had massive extinctions due to cosmic events. Do we live in a fool’s paradise that denies such bazaar possibilities even though our ancestors lived in fear of just such an event?
In the first century of the present era the Romans at one time counted fifty comets in their skies. This is unheard of today. Were the skies over Rome the end of a bloody era that only in recent centuries has become stabilized? Can there be bones of truth in this mythology? So here is our challenge. How do we explain these dreadful cataclysms that decimated mankind. Conventional science is a lost puppy. It rejects mythology. It clings to outmoded scientific concepts. It is bogged down in theory laden ideas. Come with us as we reveal the truth.
What happens on planet Earth today is nothing compared to events of the recent past? It is time to challenge some of the fundamentals of science. Darwin’s concept of uniformitarianism or slow adaptive evolution is plainly wrong. New paradigms are needed. The age of cataclysmic evolution and the mechanics of the chaotic electric solar system have arrived
