The Biblical Deluge (3106 BC)

 

WORKING DRAFT

 


SPECIAL NOTE: The author of this website originally set out to write a book entitled simply “3200 BC.” For five years he collected data from hundreds of sources sure that with enough input he could figure out what happened then. It was a labor of love. It has only been in the past few months that he finally discovered what happened. So it is with great joy that I share this page with you now. It turns out the title of the book was wrong. The actual event occurred in 3106 BC. Knowing exactly what happened and when is rewarding beyond measure. The only thing that has given me more pleasure in life is where this research led me, which is this website.


 3106 BC

Something profound happened at the start of the Mesoamerican (Mayan) Long Count calendar and the Yuga calendar of India. The following is my favorite paper of all time on this subject:

What Really Happened in 3100 BC – and Where Are We Headed Now? by Bruce Scofield

I strongly suggest you stop and read this paper. It is a great read. The following link from Stanford University is much more technical, but full of important data:

Appendix: What on Earth Happened in 3200 BC?

Some explanation is required. The lettered bullets on the left-hand side of the page are explaining the peaks and troughs in the collections of charts that is the graphic on the right-hand side of the page.

The Start of the Mayan Calendar

The Mesoamerican (Mayan) Long Count calendar is generally thought to begin on August 11, 3114 BC. The “GMT correlation” date of December 21, 2012 is accurate. It is the end of thirteen baktuns. The problem is that thirteen baktuns is not a date. I therefore agree with the logic of “Anonymous Coward” in basing his actual end date of

 

Believing everything I do regarding the calendar end date as stated in the previous section, I work backwards 2160 orbits of Jupiter from December 21, 2018 to the start of the calendar in 23,603 BC. This places the start of the last Great Cycle or Age at 3106 BC in perfect agreement with the ancient Yuga Calendar of India. Such an agreement cannot be easily ignored. It strongly suggest that orbits of Jupiter is in fact the basic unit of measurement used. This I believe to be the year of the Biblical Deluge as stated in the table on the Basic Structure of the Mesoamerican (Mayan) Long Count calendar page. The evidence for this is also included in that table.

 

The Biblical Deluge

This evidence is the following YouTube “Were the Pyramids Built Before the Flood? (Masoretic Text vs. Original Hebrew)” by Nathan Hoffman (NathanH83). I am heavily indebted and most grateful to Nathan Hoffman for making this YouTube. Without him, I might never have known what happened in “3200 BC.”

To summarize, the date of the Biblical Deluge was encoded in the Bible. I regard the Old Testament as primarily a record of major cataclysms. However, the entrenched Jewish political leadership of those days was so threatened by Joshua that they actually changed the Old Testament so that they could prove to the rank-in-file that he could not possibly be the promised Messiah.

The Yuga Calendar of India

The following paper is the most authoritative work I can find on the start date of the ancient Yuga calendar of India:

The Great Clock -4- The Yuga Calendar of India

by Christian Irigaray

In this paper, the author concludes

There is no question from the descriptions offered in the Mahabharata that the date given for the event that signaled turning of the Age is April 20, 3105 BC. It is the only date that matches the planetary configuration of the texts… [emphasis added]

He has the date as 3147 BC (his start date for the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar) and attributes iot to the breakup of the polar configuration

Note that chapter numbers seem to vary by translation. The Book of Enoch can be read as Noah perceiving an axial tilt and boardig ship before the super tsunamis that follow.

If it were not for the Book of Enoch, we would not have any Hebrew textual or scriptural precedent for many of the apocalyptic phrases in the John’s Apocalypse of Revelation.  So when the days of the coming of the Messiah are foretold, let us look at what happened to this planet earth as stated in the Book of Enoch.

 

Book of Enoch – “In those days, Noah saw that the earth became inclined, and that destruction approached.”

According to the Book of Enochjust before the flood of Noah,this planet earth tilted on its axis or as the text says, it “became inclined.”  Compare this text with another Hebrew book, also not found in the Biblical canon but was quoted from in the Old Testament.  This book was called the Megillah (Scroll) of Yashir (Jasher) and compared its description with the Book of Revelation.

Jasher 6:1 – “And on that day (Flood), the Lord causedthe whole earth to shake, and the sun darkened, and the foundations of the world rages, and the whole earth was moved violently, and the lightning flashed and the thunder roared, and all the fountains in the earth were broken up….”

Revelation 12-14 – “I looked when He opened the sixth seal, and behold, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became like blood, and the stars of heaven fell to the earth, as a fig tree drops its late figs when it is shaken by a mighty wind. Then the sky receded as a scroll when it is rolled up, and every mountain and island was moved out of its place.”

Chapter 64 [SECT. XI.]

1. In those days Noah saw that the earth became inclined, and that destruction approached.

2. Then he lifted up his feet, and went to the ends of the earth, to the dwelling of his great-grandfather Enoch.

3. And Noah cried with a bitter voice, Hear me; hear me; hear me: three times. And he said, Tell me what is transacting upon earth; for the earth labours, and is violently shaken. Surely I shall perish with it.

This complex work was extremely influential and is very important. It is the oldest known Jewish apocalyptic text -older than the canonical book of Daniel
