Index of New Testament Allusions to Books of the Pseudepigrapha

Readers of Reversing Hermon know that this information is in an appendix to that book. But in the book these allusions are given in full and are listed by Pseudepigraphical source. That’s one reason that appendix is so long!

We should all thank Warren Hart for something much more compact and readable. Warren has produced an index in chart form. Here it is as a PDF:

Index of New Testament Allusions to Books of the Pseudepigrapha – Sorted

It’s arranged by books of the NT. It also includes page number references in Reversing Hermon for Scripture references that correspond to the allusions to books among the Pseudepigrapha. Here’s a screenshot:

UFO Sighting in Grove City, Ohio on 2017-05-26 00:00:00 – Red orange pulsated and wobbled. two objects one behind the other pulsating light when viewed with binoculars wobbled in flight.

At approximately 1100 pm on may 26 2017 i was going to bed and looked out my window facing south. i noticed two objects under low cloud cover. the objects glowed red orange and at first i thought they might be helicopters however they began to bounce and wobble in flight. at this time i went out my front door to attempt to hear any sound from the objects and there was none. i went back inside acquired my binoculars went out again and looked at the objects through the binoculars. the shape appeared round with pulsating light but i could not observe any structure. the objects continued from south to north at a slow steady pace and finally diapered in lower cloud cover. i was extremely surprised to obverse objects behaving in this manner over town and the fact they made no noise was strange. my wife also observed the objects. we discussed the possibility of drones but it just didn’t make sense. we then decided the report the incident.

UFO Sighting in Mahopac, New York on 2017-05-24 22:30:00 – Video a 2 orb’s yellow-orange zipping around, video b bright orb red-orange. very fast!

On may 24th around 10:30-10:45pm it was cloudy,drizzling i was facing ne, with my night vision camera on tripod i zoomed in saw 2 yellow-orange orb’s zipping around for about 15sec’s then flew off.

same night around 11:30pm a bright red-orange orb came in(1:14 in to video b) and was hovering for 20sec’s before zipping off ne at high rate of speed. as you can see in the video drizzle and debris was moving but the orb wasn’t till it flew off.

the night was cloudy, drizzling, breezy. the objects i would say where about 1000ft + high, i had to max out the night vision zoom on camera.

to be honest, i didn’t think i was going to see anything that night but i felt i had to try, this is my second report in like 2 months. wtf!

Black Triangle Sighting in Seattle, Washington on 2017-05-26 00:00:00 – Triagular arranged lights seen flying silently overhead.

Observed in west seattle near intersection of 63rd and beach dr. cloudless night, at approximately 12:30am friday may 26. standing outside looking at stars, primarily the big dipper i saw 2 sets of odd lights. i often see satellites cross the sky in the hours after a sunset, so they are very familiar.

the first set of strange lights i saw were just 2, no brighter than stars about a thumb width apart if you hold your hand up. they were traveling parallel to each (remaining constant distance from each other) from south to north through the “ladel” of the big dipper, about twice the speed of satellites i have observed, no noise at all. initially i suspected a drone but seemed far to far for their range.

but watching them travel north i noticed a new set of lights 5 lights that formed an equilateral triangle cross their path behind them. these lights were also about the brightness of stars, and moving twice the speed of a satellite just as silently. lights configured 1 at the front point 2 additional lights on either side. so they formed a chevron. these lights traveled from east to west, again through the “ladel” of the big dipper, then turned n-nw smoothly. it didn’t appear to bank (as a plane would) because it remained the equilateral triangle shape. size about twice the diameter of the first 2 lights, so maybe 2 thumb widths.

the total event was short just maybe 10-15 seconds before fading.

UFO Sighting in Morehouse, Missouri on 2016-04-10 02:30:00 – Heavy cloud cover. no rain. hovered right above low lying clouds.

I was coming home from the store at around 1:00 a.M. as i approached my house at here was a very deep bass him above me above the cloud cover. i physically felt a sudden drop in air pressure like i was being squeezed towards the ground. the him vibrated me and felt very heavy. it lasted about 45 seconds and then i could feel the pressure easing and the him drifted away straight up. it clearly felt like some massive object had been hovering above me and could have crushed me if it came low enough. i had a migraine for 2 days afterward.I don’t believe it was a weather phenomenon. it felt intelligent to me some how.

Gobekli Tepe: Stop the Madness, Please

Boy, am I tired of hearing about Gobekli Tepe. Pardon the pun, but it’s become a monument to those who cannot distinguish speculation from data.

The truth is that no one really knows what the site was for, who built, or why it was built. No one knows the meaning of the iconography. This is getting to be the new Atlantis — take a few lines from Plato and erect a multi-volume “history” of Atlantis, complete with dissertation-length treatises on its culture, religion, architecture, science, etc. Absolute fabrication passed off as “ancient knowledge.” Enough already.

Here’s some reading material written by people who understand that having an idea in one’s head doesn’t make that idea reality:

Jason Colavito, Robert Schoch’s Wacky Easter Island-Gobekli Tepe Theory: The Hypocrisy of Alternative Dating

This one illustrates how, when Christians get on the bandwagon of awful research (and dishonesty) it destroys good will and credibility (see the second-to-last paragraph):

More Giant Skeleton Hoaxing

I received an email recently asking me whether the following story was real or not:

Smithsonian Admits to Destruction of Thousands of Giant Human Skeletons in Early 1900’s

This is actually an old hoax. It apparently originated via the World News Daily Report, a satirical, tabloid site. You can read the unraveling of the hoax here. And please pay special attention to this familiar picture of an alleged giant human femur:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The picture is from the Mt. Blanco Fossil Museum. As the True Free Thinker article linked above notes, Joe Taylor, the museum’s curator, has explained the femur as follows:

“I sculpted a femur 47-1/2 (120 cm) based on a report in a newsletter where it was reported on by the construction engineer who found it and other skeletons the same height. I was commissioned to sculpt the femur so a college professor could show his students how large it was…In every instance, I have told others that it is JUST A SCULPTURE. The real bone was not available … All museums have casts of specimens as well as real bones. Some have sculptures based on reports only, as this one.”

The real bone was not available. Of course. Nothing to validate the claim. Nothing. Again.
