ANCIENT SCOTTISH PICTS USED GOLDEN RATIO
New research into the enigmatic lost Pict people of Scotland has demonstrated that the group was much more advanced than previously thought. Apparently as early as about A.D. 500 Pictish artisans and architects were using the golden section in the building of Christian chapels. For archaeologists now digging up a Pictish monastery at Portmahomack on the Tarbat peninsula in Scotland that is an astonishing discovery.
Long considered to be highly artistic, the Picts were nevertheless thought to be quite primitive. The new discovery, however, reveals a mastery of advanced design principles. The golden section or golden ratio is the dimensional proportion expressed numerically at 1.618. It appears over and over again in nature and has been the frequent tool of enlightened architects and artists in many ancient and modern cultures throughout the world. From the Notre Dame cathedral to the Great Pyramid of Egypt, to the United Nations building, the golden ratio has been a crucial recurring element.
So, if the Picts knew more than we realized, the next question would appear to be: where, and from whom, did they learn it?
TEMPLE MOUNT CODE IS KEY TO HISTORY, SAYS RESEARCHER
When Michael Drosnin published his “Bible Code” in 1997 it caused a sensation. Scholars everywhere were mystified by his claim that the original Hebrew letters of the Torah—the first five books of the Christian Bible—contained hidden coded references to modern events. While many disputed his conclusions, Drosnin was, nevertheless, able to make a strong enough case to attract worldwide attention. Now another book by another author may be on the verge of similar notoriety.
“Temple at the Center of Time: Newton’s Bible Codex Deciphered and the Year 2012” by David Flynn, claims to have unraveled Isaac Newton’s unified field theory of biblical prophecy and suggests that the temple of Solomon is more than a mere place of worship: indeed that it intersects time and dimension, making it a prophetic and supernatural structure, virtually “God’s Time Bomb.”
Flynn catalogues a number of the anomalies surrounding the temple, including the prisca sapentia framework of Newton, which suggests that the distance between the temple of Jerusalem and the capital city of any nation historically affecting the chronicles of Jerusalem would be supernaturally connected.
“The description of Jerusalem as a terrestrial center point, situated in the center of the world, is found in Philo’s Legatio and Gaium,” Flynn notes. “The world is like a human eyeball. The white of the eye is the ocean surrounding the world, the iris is this continent, the pupil is Jerusalem, and the image in the pupil is the Holy Temple.”

INQUISITION REVISIT THREATENED
The Spanish Inquisition may soon be back in business, but this time, instead of prosecuting heretics, the Church of Rome may be defending itself. An organization representing itself as the Knights Templar is demanding that the church give back its good name plus billions of dollars of assets taken from it when the organization was crushed 700 years ago by agents of the French king Phillip IV in league with pope Clement V. If the church does not comply, the Templars say they will sue in the Spanish courts.
Given the rate at which that court usually operates, a verdict could well take another 700 years, but the templars say that’s okay, since their main intention is to draw public attention to the great injustice which they and their ancestors have suffered at the hand of the church. Their case was recently buttressed by the official publication of long secret Vatican documents which exonerate the templars from the charges brought against them at the time, including heresy and sodomy.
It now appears that the church’s actions were intended more to please Phillip than because of any real threat from the Templars.
