Special Note: While I have taken the time to expand this page, the most important sections remain The Widow of a High Ranking Freemason and The Out-of-Place, Doomsday Sentence in Her Chapter on the Apocalypse. These two sections considered together suggest very strongly that Mary Baker Eddy not only knew about the coming axial tilt but quite possibly when it would occur.
The Widow of a High Ranking Freemason
Mary Baker Eddy married a high ranking Freemason at the height of their power when they were still in direct control of the United States of America. He obviously took her into his confidence and broke his oath of secrecy because in her Course in Divinity on May 18, 1903 she is reported to have said the following:
I know what is coming. I dare not tell you what I know; you are young yet, and now is the time to experiment. You will know some day. We are told the world will be destroyed. How? … We are told, like Mt. Pelee there is an internal fire that will finally burst forth and will destroy the world.1
Ekpyrosis (/ˌɛkpɪˈroʊsɪs/; Ancient Greek: ἐκπύρωσις ekpyrōsis, “conflagration”) is a Stoic belief in the periodic destruction of the cosmos by a great conflagration every Great Year. The cosmos is then recreated (palingenesis) only to be destroyed again at the end of the new cycle. This form of catastrophe is the opposite of kataklysmos (κατακλυσμός, “inundation”), the destruction of the earth by water. —Wikipedia
“Every Great Year” is a once-every-26,000-years event, which would explain the dire predictions of Christ Jesus and Daniel the prophet.
for then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be
there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation
A great many Internet pages also say that Mrs. Eddy was an “associate” of Henry Steel Olcott, a 33rd Degree Freemason, who Wikipedia says is a “co-founder and first President of the Theosophical Society.” This association is usually made by way of suggesting that Christian Science is somehow evil. I can assure you that I have been around these people for 40 years and they are noI. I am in the process of contacting the MBE Library again to ascertain to what extent she knew this man. I can find no references outside of those who would profane my religion. It is undeniable that the cross and crown which adorns the cover of Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures is also used by the Freemasons, but to use this as a basis to attack Christian Science evidences an acute lack of understanding as to why she chose this symbol instead of the ark used on the second edition of her textbook. I discuss this further below.
Authenticity of the Quote
The Mary Baker Eddy Library publishes the following article about the source of this quote
The “Red Book” and the “Blue Book”
These two books are compilations of material initially published by Gilbert Carpenter and his son, Gilbert Carpenter, Jr. in the late 1930s. The elder Carpenter served as a secretary from April 1905 to April 1906 in Mary Baker Eddy’s household. Over the years the Carpenters collected copies of writings attributed to Eddy and her students as well as anecdotes of her life. The Carpenters started an organization, the Carpenter Foundation, and its purpose was to make the materials they collected available to those they considered “advanced” students of Christian Science. To that end, they published books containing these materials. After the death of both Carpenters, the work of their foundation was carried on by its longtime secretary, Grace Ross.
Richard Oakes, who had distributed some literature of the Carpenters in England, decided to take some of the Carpenter materials and publish them on his own, which resulted in the “red book” and “blue book.” Ross responded by suing Oakes on behalf of the Foundation. The costs of the suit bankrupted the foundation, and in 1973 Ross negotiated with The Mother Church to take its materials.
Because the Carpenters made little effort to weed out the unauthentic pieces from the genuine items, some statements in these books that are attributed to Eddy have proven upon investigation not to be by her at all, while pieces known to be authentic have not been transcribed accurately.
Given the mix of authentic and questionable materials in these books, don’t hesitate to contact the Research and Reference staff if you have a question about a specific piece in either the “red book” or “blue book.” —MBE Library [bold emphasis added]
I have written their Research and Reference Services and asked for their help in determining the authenticity of this quote. Today i received the following response from a Mr. Kurt Morris at the Mary Baker Eddy Library in Boston, Massachusetts:
- From: Kurt Morris < @mbelibrary.org>
- Subject: Quote attributed to Mary Baker Eddy
- Date: Friday, January 12, 2018 12:24 PM
Dear Mr. ,
Thank you for your question regarding the quote attributed to Mary Baker Eddy as follows: “I know what is coming. I dare not tell you what I know; you are young yet, and now is the time to experiment. You will know some day. We are told the world will be destroyed. How? … We are told, like Mt. Pelee there is an internal fire that will finally burst forth and will destroy the world.”
This quotation is from the notebook of one of Eddy’s students, Lida Fitzpatrick. It is correct as quoted.
For more information the Red and Blue Books, please see this page at our website:https://www.marybakereddylibrary.org/research/the-red-book-and-the-blue-book/.
Thanks again for your question. Please let us know if we can be of further assistance.

The Time is at Hand
Mrs. Eddy called her chapter on the Book of Revelation “The Apocalypse” and began it with the biblical quote to the left. I would suggest to you that the emphasis here is on “the time is at hand.”
The mild forms of animal magnetism are disappearing [Freemasonry], and its aggressive features are coming to the front [the Illuminati]. The looms of crime, hidden in the dark recesses of mortal thought, are every hour weaving webs more complicated and subtle. So secret are the present methods of animal magnetism that they ensnare the age into indolence, and produce the very apathy on the subject which the criminal desires. The following is an extract from the Boston Herald:
“Mesmerism is a problem not lending itself to an easy explanation and development. It implies the exercise of despotic control, and is much more likely to be abused by its possessor, than otherwise employed, for the individual or society.” [bold-red emphasis and bracketed comments added]
Yet equating “mild forms of animal magnetism” with Freemasonry would imply that Mrs. Eddy did not in fact trust the Freemasons.
As of old, evil [the progeny of Jove] still charges the spiritual idea with error’s own nature and methods. This malicious animal instinct, of which the dragon is the type, incites mortals to kill morally and physically even their fellow-mortals, and worse still, to charge the innocent with the crime. This last infirmity of sin will sink its perpetrator into a night without a star.
The author is convinced that the accusations against Jesus of Nazareth and even his crucifixion were instigated by the criminal instinct here described. —S&H 564:3-12 [bold-red emphasis and bracketed comments added]
Here again, it is my belief that Mrs. Eddy is not speaking abstractly here but referring to what she learned of the Freemasons (best thought of as the progeny of Jove in this context) and that what she is saying os that they were responsible for what happened to Christ Jesus. I can assure you that Christian Scientists will reel when reading this. Nevertheless, I think “still charges the spiritual idea with error’s own nature and methods” is a direct reference to something Mrs. Eddy learned about the Freemasons while in the Southern United States, and that “error’s own nature and methods” is a reference to their practices and beliefs.
The Cross and Crown
The cross and crown is also associated with Freemasonry. The cross in the Christian Science trademarked symbol is tilted to 23.5 degrees, the same as the axial tilt of our planet. This is entirely consistent with the immeasurably important work of Scott Creighton and Gary Osborn who show that the entire design of the interior of the Great Pyramid of Giza emphasizes the 23.5 degree tilt of the Earth’s axis, as well as the equally important work of Gary Osborn in showing that master painters throughout the ages have also incorporated both the angle of Earth’s axis and the angle of the sides of the Great Pyramid of Giza into their work. An example from his webpage entitled “The Great Pyramid Angle…All Roads Lead to Giza” is shown above. Here it is important to note
…the Great Pyramid’s side angles are between 51° and 52° – precise figure, 51.84°, and in arc minutes they are 51°.5′. Again, the all-round figure of 52° is often used as a reference to the slope angle of its four sides. — Gary Osborn
Do you suppose the tilt of the cross in the trademark for the Christian Science textbook is not following this tradition? The question is did Mary Baker Eddy know or did she not. She says she did: “I know what is coming.” There are ten lines on either side of the crossbeam. That part of the cross that extends through the crown consists of eight lines. 10 + 8 = 18, or 2018. I could go on, but to what end? “Confirmation bias” is a polite word for insane. The crown has four circles (one divided in half) separated by eight dots. 4 + 8 = 12, or 2012. There are five stars adorning the crown, could this not represent the five years of what I call the Great Wayeb? 12 + 5 = 17, or 2017. But wait, this is 2017, not 2018. Yes, that is correct. The Freemasons did the exact same thing, they surfaced in 1717, two seventeens, or 2017. Why? That is a discussion I take up elsewhere.
Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.
The Out-of-Place, Doomsday Sentence in Her Chapter on the Apocalypse
Mrs. Eddy did leave us this authoritative record in her textbook Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures on the third page of the chapter entitled Apocalypse:
The twelfth chapter of the Apocalypse, or Revelation of St. John, has a special suggestiveness in connection with the nineteenth century. In the opening of the sixth seal, typical of six thousand years since Adam, the distinctive feature has reference to the present age. [emphasis added]
The term “sixth seal” occurs only once in the Bible, and it is in the sixth chapter of Revelation, not the twelfth. Let me repeat this, before and after the sentence, “In the opening of the sixth seal, typical of six thousand years since Adam, the distinctive feature has reference to the present age,” Mrs. Eddy is talking about the twelfth chapter of Revelation. Reference to the “sixth seal” is out of context.
In the previous sentence, Mrs. Eddy is talking about the nineteenth century, but this sentence refers to the “present age” and is clearly labeled “Today’s lesson.” There were 432 editions of her book. Do you think it’s possible she never noticed this discrepancy?
Is Mrs. Eddy trying to tell us something by inserting this apparently out-of-place sentence?
Let us be sure of one thing, “In the opening of the sixth seal” is a reference to the closing paragraph of Revelation 6 (verses 12-17, quoted below) in which the term “sixth seal” is mentioned. Thus, whatever is identified as the “distinctive feature” must be drawn from these verses of the Bible and nowhere else.
I might also point out that this out-of-place sentence starts on the second sentence of the third page of her chapter on the Apocalypse. If it bears no relevance to the surrounding text, might she have chosen this location on purpose? The first two pages representing millennia (2000 years) and the second sentence on the third page indicting the second decade of the third millennia. Heck, while we are awash in “confirmation bias,” I could even point out that, from the period to the left of the start of this sentence (including spaces), there are 33 characters.
What is the “distinctive feature”?
At first glance you might say that the answer is obvious (even as did I in an earlier version of this page). The “distinctive feature” is an earthquake. Only look again. What this biblical text is describing is actually an axial tilt.
12 And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood; 13 and the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind. 14 And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places. 15 And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; 16 and said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: 17 for the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand? [bold-red emphasis added]
I need to provide more references here, but this text is generally thought to be describing an axial tilt, especially “the stars of heaven fell unto the earth the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together” and “both of which are describing what the night sky looks like as the axis is in the process of tilting.” This is precisely why Rand and Rose Flem-Ath named their book “When The Sky Fell.” Great earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, and unbelievably huge, mountainous ocean tsunamis (the later delayed by as much as one or two days, see Noah’s Secret for a discussion) are inherently part of an axial tilt. See also Mega-Earthquakes (and Supervolcanoes) versus an Axial Tilt for a discussion.

The Ark Edition
The cover of the second edition of Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures was adorned with an ark. Consequently it is called the “Ark Edition.” Why? Why did she put an image of an ark on her primary work on metaphysics? See also Can you give some background on the Ark Edition of “Science and Health”? at the MBE Library. Might the answer be that it was not subtle enough, and that this is why she switched to the Cross and Crown, a Freemason symbol in which the cross is tilted to 23.5°, the same as the present axial tilt of our planet?
The Death of Mary Baker Eddy on December 3, 1910
Did Mrs. Eddy choose the time of her death based on an obscure pamphlet entitled “The Latter Days; With Evidence from the Great Pyramid” and written by an unknown “F.E.H.”?
SEE EMAIL TO MBE LIbray
also Hailey’s comet 1910
The Forever Leader: The Life of Mary Baker Eddy (1901-1910) by Doris Grekel, p.590-591 (cannot locate her)
also need to find quote that MBE marked this page
As described in the same pamphlet, the theory is that “the length of [the passages inside the Great Pyramid of Giza] indicate the duration of the periods they signify, at the rate of an inch to a year.” There is general agreement that the start of the ascending passage represents the Exodus and the start of the Grand Gallery represents the crucifixion of Christ Jesus. This is difficult to believe. First, you must know that the ancients used the exact same Imperial system of measurement as used today in England and the United States of America. This is discussed in The Measure of Albion by Robin Heath and John Michell as well as many other reputable sources. As discussed on this website, it is also proven in the work on the pyramid matrix by Carl Munck. In fact, if you do not know this, I would suggest that you need to study the ancients more. Second you must believe that the designers of the Great Pyramid of Giza had foreknowledge of important events such as the comet Venus bumping up against earth’s magnetosphere (i.e. the Exodus). This much is reasonable given the level of intelligence exhibited by the design of the Great Pyramid. But they would also have had to of known about Christ Jesus in advance. What this suggests to me, and I most certainly would not rule it out, is that the designers of the Great Pyramid of Giza had something to do with the advent of the Christ. In any case, it is hard to swallow.
In the online store at http://endtime-store.stores.yahoo.net/latdaywitevf.html for the Christian Science Endtime Center (http://www.endtime.org/), which I am fully aware is not affiliated with the Mother Church, they make the following statement regarding a pamphlet entitled “The Latter Days; With Evidence from the Great Pyramid,” written by “F.E.H.”
Mary Baker Eddy left a copy of this booklet titled: “The Latter Days; With Evidence from the Great Pyramid,” on her desk the day of her passing, December 3rd, 1910.
The booklet is of interest to Christian Scientists primarily because of the following statement, which was marked in pencil by Mrs. Eddy: “…the Grand Gallery, 1,910 inches, gives the 3rd of December, 1910, as the end of the present era…”
The text of this booklet was transcribed from a copy with the following stamp: “Property of Library of The Mother Church, The First Church of Christ, Scientist, Boston, Massachusetts.”
If this is true, it would have profound implications, namely the underlining of this sentence suggests that she chose the time of her death (i.e. that she laid down her life voluntarily), and by extension imbued the Great Pyramid of Giza and the phablet she left behind on her desk with great meaning . Can you please comment as to the veracity of these statements.
I will print their response here when I receive it.
I would also point out something that will not appeal to any but Christian Scientists highly steeped in sacred numbers (a position I may occupy quite alone); Mrs. Eddy died in 1910, exactly 108 years before the extended end date (the “Great Wayeb” as I call it) of the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar. 108 is part of the most important sacred number progression: 27, 54, 108. 216, 432.
It is most difficult for Christian Scientists in general to lend credence to sacred numbers, but I do. I see what Pythagoras did. They are nevertheless truly amazing. In her chapter on “Science, Theology, Medicine” on page 113, Mrs. Eddy makes the following statement:
De Quincey says mathematics has not a foot to stand upon which is not purely metaphysical.
I would suggest to you that there is no higher mathematics than the study of sacred numbers. It is not the same as numerology. And in her chapter on Physiology on page 195, she says
Through astronomy, natural history, chemistry, music, mathematics, thought passes naturally from effect back to cause.
Geometry, more specific than mathematics, belongs in this list. My God, if you combine these two statements you are very close to the mindset of the Progeny of Jove. The same sacred numbers manifest themselves at a most fundamental level in all of these disciplines and in time itself, if I am correct in my assessment of the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar being equal to 2160 orbits of Jupiter and of cycles of destruction in general.
In this sense, time is as material as protons, neutrons, and electrons. This is not a metaphysical statement, but a simple matter of fact. In an electromagnetic universe, that which governs the flight of an electron around the nucleus of an atom, also governs the orbits of planets and therefore time itself. Knowing what I do of sacred numbers, I do not doubt for a minute that sacred numbers also manifest themselves in time measurements. This is why mythology is awash in them. What you see when you look deeply into the sacred number progression 27, 54, 108, 216, 432 is utterly amazing. I fully understand the Progeny of Jove in this respect. I fault them only in that they believe they have discovered a property of matter and fail to understand that there is a conscious Mind behind these numbers. Hence, instead of respect for that Mind, they see only what they regard as their own raw intelligence.
Pyramid Donated by the Freemasons
I should think this pyramid significant if in fact it was donated by the Freemasons at a time when they were still in direct control of the United States of America, but I need to verify this fact. Wikipedia says only the following:
In 1921, on the 100th anniversary of Eddy’s birth, a 100-ton (in rough) and 60–70 tons (hewn), pyramid with a 121 square foot footprint was dedicated on the site of her birthplace in Bow, New Hampshire. A gift from James F. Lord, it was dynamited in 1962 by order of the church’s board of directors. Also demolished was Eddy’s former home in Pleasant View, as the board feared that it was becoming a place of pilgrimage. —Wikipedia
It may have been dedicated in 1921, but according to an article entitled “The centennial of Mrs. Eddy’s birth in 1921” on the christiansciencehistory.typepad.com website, the pyramid was in place well before then in 1919. This article has much more information and pictures of the pyramid, but it does not even mention Freemasons.
As of this writing, I can neither confirm that James F. Lord was a Freemason, or that the Pyramid was donated by the Freemasons. I can only find this reference from the New World Encyclopedia:
In 1921 on the 100th anniversary of her birth, a 100-ton, 11-foot high granite pyramid was dedicated on the site of her birthplace in Bow, Massachusetts. A gift from the Freemasons (the only other religious society church members are permitted to join), it was later dynamited by order of the Mother Church Board of Directors. They also ordered her home in Pleasant View to be demolished as it was becoming a place of pilgrimage. [bold-red emphasis added]
I will at some point in the near future ask the opinion of the Research & Reference Services of the Mary Baker Eddy Library in Boston, but as of this writing I have a pending request with them of much greater importance.
432 Editions of Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures
I do not believe for a moment that it is mere chance that there are 432 editions of Science and health with Key to the Scriptures. 432 is a sacred number. Each Great Cycle of the Mesoamerican Long Count (misnamed “Mayan) calendar is 432 orbits of Jupiter, or 5124.2976 years using NASA’s orbital period of 11.8618 years. The Biblical Deluge occurred in 3106 BC, exactly 432 orbits of Jupiter ago. The image above is from what I call simply “the table” which is a presentation of the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar as 2160 orbits of Jupiter ending in the year 2018. The table and my work on the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar along with the realization of what happened in 3100 BC (3106 BC to be precise) are the centerpieces of this website and my greatest discoveries. They go completely ignored.
Mary Baker Eddy is called the “discoverer” of Christian Science. She was a “scribe under orders” (her words). I believe she ushered in the promised Comforter (as do all Christian Scientists), which is a “little book” entitled Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures. But this religion was meant for the next age, not us. It is pure metaphysics based on the teaching of Christ Jesus.
Here is how Christ Jesus described the Comforter, which he said “shall teach you all things” as found in The Gospel of John:
And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;
But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.
Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.
Mrs. Eddy says “this teaching is in advance of the age” (371:24). And at 474:8 she says:
To the ignorant age in which it first appears, Science seems to be a mistake, – hence the misinterpretation and consequent maltreatment which it receives.
Other ages are to come. I believe the primary purpose of this age is to disseminate copies of her textbook all over the globe in all of the world’s major languages prior to the axial tilt in fulfillment of these biblical prophesies of Christ Jesus:
And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.
Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.
What is most relevant about Christian Science to my work is that because Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures was written by a human being with both an earthly mother and father, after what I call the “event” ET will judge us ready to enter the interstellar, galactic, or intergalactic community. In other words, because of her we will not be alone after the event. ET was clearly here after the Biblical Deluge of 3106 BC, and they are coming back. And I don’t think it is such a stretch to believe that the man we refer to as Christ Jesus will be among them. Someone is clearly trying to help us.
