Location and size of Edom and Ammon: below and northeast of the Dead Sea, roughly 75 miles thourgh each country. Not “a” rock, not “some” rock, not “rock”, but THE rock. Eochaide was a descendent of the Zarah line of Judah, while Tea Tephi was of the Pharez line of Judah.The coronation stone which sat in Westminster Abbey, England, is the coronation stone of the Hebrew nation called Israelites. The Zarah line, as firstborn, ruled in Egypt after the death of Joseph.I assume that the planetary gear could have been used, given the particular kinematic similarity, as a mathematical model for the calculation of planetary motion in the heavens.In July 2006, during an emergency excavation in the municipal market square in the city of Olbia, a fragment of a toothed wheel of 43 mm (1.6929 inches) was found.Cicero, referring to the impressions of Gaius Sulpicius Gallus, who had been able to observe the extraordinary object in person, points out that the genius Archimedes was able to generate the motions of planets, each so different from the next, with a single rotation.Archimedes had described the construction of the Planetarium in the work The discovery of the Antikythera Planetarium in 1902, a gear device that dates back to the first half of the 1st century BC also shows how the ancient people developed mechanisms designed to represent the motion of the stars, which in turn has rekindled interest of the Archimedes Planetarium.By bringing together top experts and authors, this archaeology website explores lost civilizations, examines sacred writings, tours ancient places, investigates ancient discoveries and questions mysterious happenings.Our open community is dedicated to digging into the origins of our species on planet earth, and question wherever the discoveries might take us.
We’re the only Pop Archaeology site combining scientific research with out-of-the-box perspectives.The famously disastrous Genesis flood was merely a local flood, argue critics of the literal interpretation of the Bible. At Ancient Origins, we believe that one of the most important fields of knowledge we can pursue as human beings is our beginnings.Fundamentalists contest that the flood was indeed global. And while some people may seem content with the story as it stands, our view is that there exists countless mysteries, scientific anomalies and surprising artifacts that have yet to be discovered and explained.The Archimedes Planetarium was one of the most admired technical achievements in antiquity.The best information on this apparatus is given by Cicero, who writes that in the year 212 BC, when Syracuse was sacked by Roman troops, the consul Marcus Claudius Marcellus brought an apparatus constructed by Archimedes to Rome that reproduced the vault of the sky on a sphere, and another that predicted the apparent motions of the Sun, Moon and planets, thus corresponding to a modern planetarium.The find, although small, is not a simple piece of crockery, but instead a great testimony and thus a new, unique and unexpected contribution to the scientific knowledge of the great Archimedes.The knowledge of epicyclic motion, also known as planetary motion, necessary for the design of the planetary gear in the Planetarium of Antikythera and in the tooth profile of the gear of Archimedes, allows us to assume that some ancient Greek scientists knew the planetary motion of celestial bodies and had achieved the same results later attributed to modern scientists 2000 years later.The Superintendence for the Archaeological Heritage of Sardinia, who directed the excavation, gave due importance to a seemingly insignificant and oxidized metal fragment.The find appeared similar to the gears of the Antikythera Mechanism, discovered in Greece, conserved in the National Archaeological Museum of Athens, and much talked about in that period because further modern tomographic analysis was being carried out in Athens.As it turns out, the gear is very scientifically advanced despite being constructed before all other known mechanisms to date.Considering the perfect correlation between the scientific evidence and historical, literary and archaeological studies, it does not seem rash to conclude that the fragment from Olbia was an integral part of the Archimedes Planetarium (Orrery).
