Map of Holy Time

The Reality of the Civilizing Heroes
The legends of all peoples tell of Civilizing Heroes, Angels, Gods or even Demons and Monsters who were their civilizers and who taught them religion, law, agriculture, metallurgy and the alphabet. These are the Fallen Angels the same all too human heroes who fell desperately in love with the beautiful native girls, the Daughters of Man Genesis: 6: These fallen gods were not astronauts nor spirits, but saintly men who came as missionaries from Atlantis. How else could they mate with human females and breed children?


The mysterious “Sons of God” (ben Elohim) of Genesis: 6: are precisely the same ones identified by Plato with the Atlantian’s. Their sin with the Daughters of Men – and more probably the rejection and enslavement of their hybrid offspring led to the Flood. This is indeed the mysterious Original Sin that resulted in the destruction of Paradise (Atlantis) and the Fall of Man. This sin is the one ritually washed by the Baptism, itself an allegory of the Flood, as St. Jerome and other Church Patriarchs explicitly acknowledge.


Plato quotes precisely this cause for the destruction of Atlantis by God (Zeus) in his unfinished dialogue on Atlantis. Homer concerning the Phaeacian “Sons of God” also tells the same story in allegorized form. It also figures in the Celtic myths concerning Mererid, the sinful daughter of King Gradlon, whose scabrous conduct led to the sinking of the land of Ys.


The Cause of the Ice Age
This is how an Ice Age starts. Converted into clouds by the sun, seawater is carried into the continents by the wind, where it pours down as rain, hail or snow. If conditions are right, as they were then, this down falling water is retained in glaciers that end up covering the temperate regions with a shroud of ice that is one or two miles thick. Sea levels consequently drop by 100-150 meters or even more, exposing the shallow bottoms of the sea.


Such was the case of the South China Sea, whose depth seldom exceeds 60 meters or so. When the Ice Age ends, the process is reverted. The glaciers melt away, and their melt water quickly drains into the sea. In consequence, the bottoms previously exposed as dry land become submerged once again.


As we see, the world works as a kind of flip-flop or swing, forever oscillating between the extremes of cold and heat. Interestingly enough, it is Life itself that equilibrates the balance, introducing a negative feedback that counteracts the tendency for the world to freeze or sizzle. For instance, if carbon dioxide (CO˛) increases in the atmosphere, the temperature tends to go up with the so-called Hothouse Effect. This is precisely what we observe on sizzling Venus, whose atmosphere is almost pure CO˛. On gelid Mars, whose atmosphere and life was almost all lost in a tremendous cataclysm probably caused by the fall of a meteor of planetoidal size – the opposite swing took place.


Wherever life exists, as on Mother Earth, increased CO˛ contents of the atmosphere also results in increased photosynthesis. Plants grow more luxuriously, fixing the excess carbon dioxide in themselves, and alleviating the situation. The opposite process happens if the CO˛ content of the atmosphere is reduced for some reason. Photosynthesis is consequently reduced and plant matter – mainly the plankton in the seas, rather than the tropical forests decreases, liberating CO˛. This increases the atmospheric content, tending to increase earth’s temperature back to its normal value.


Moreover, an ice cover effectively reflects sunlight back towards outer space, reducing the amount of solar heat absorbed by the earth. Its temperature consequently drops, and the glaciers advance further until they cover all the temperate regions of earth. In the absence of life, we have the two extremes instanced by our two neighboring planets, Venus and Mars. As we said above, Venus is as hot as hell, whereas Mars is completely frozen up, as if to vividly exemplify to us all the two extremes of lifeless conditions.


The End of the Ice Age
The causes of the periodic advance and retreat of the continental glaciers is not well known. To believe the myths, the end of the Pleistocene Ice Age was engendered by the Original Sin, which initiated the cataclysmic explosion of Mt Atlas.


Mt. Atlas – the Pillar of Heaven that decorated Atlantis was an immense volcano peak in the region that now corresponds to the island arc of Indonesia. To be more precise, this volcano was the terrible Krakatoa, even today still alive and very active, despite its monumental explosion in Atlantian times. After its colossal explosion, the Krakatoa volcano sunk away undersea, becoming the giant caldera that now forms the Sunda Strait between Java and Sumatra.


This giant caldera – fully 150 km. across, is the Fiery Submarine Mare (Vadava-mukha.) The giant explosion of the Holy Mountain is attested to, not only by the worldwide myths that recount the end of Paradise (Atlantis,) but the geological evidence is overwhelming as well. The Tektite Belt and the volcanic ash layer that covers most of the South Indian Ocean, Australia, Indonesia and Southeast Asia also testify to similar cataclysms in this remote region of the world.


The ashes and dust liberated by the gigantic explosion were carried away by the winds, and covered the glaciers of North Asia and North America with a dark veil of carbonized matter. The result was an increased absorption of sunlight and a quick melting away of the glaciers that covered the continents beyond the tropical regions.
