In the far distant future Homo sapiens may be remembered as  creatures practicing the strange habit of recording events of their existence on earth by carving on rocks, writing on something called paper made from trees, and with binary code – zeros and ones – stored in electronic devices.

          The “Watchers,” the Nephilim of biblical, Old Testament history, were the ruling elite of earlier proto-Neolithic (beginning) and Neolithic (last phase) communities of the Middle East, (11,000 BCE – 7,500 CE). These Watchers of ancient times, or descendents thereof, constructed megalithic (large stone) structures in many parts of the world, including Stonehenge in Britain and the huge platforms at Jerusalem and Baalbek in Lebanon.

         The Maya Watchers of Mexico owe allegiance to the ancient Nephilim of the Old Testament. The carved sarcophagus lid at the tomb of Pacal, at Palenque in Mexico, has been dissected and examined by Alan Cornette in  Seven Mountains and the Red Star. This revealing work proves that Pacal was a Watcher, perhaps the chief astronomer of the Classic Maya Period. The carving does not depict a spaceman blasting off into space as some mislead people believe. However, this does not explain the huge platform that existed before Jerusalem, where Abraham took Isaac to sacrifice, or the more mysterious platform at Baalbek, in Lebanon.

          The great majority of people, including biblical scholars, are not aware of, or would rather ignore, the implications of the “thrashing floor of Araunah, the Jebusite” (11 Samuel 24:18). This is the huge platform upon which Solomon built the first temple, and this huge construction was already in existence at that time. King Herod had nothing to do with building the original platform. You will not find reference to construction of this platform in the Bible, as noted by Zecharia Sitchin in The Earth Chronicles Expeditions (195). This is where the now present, Islamic Dome of the Rock now sits. It will take a major catastrophe like a huge comet swarm or asteroid strike to change this situation.

The rock art above, located in Powell County, Kentucky, is similar to other barbell-like petroglyphs found in other parts of America. One theory is that this rock art represents a comet or asteroid sighting.
