Crete as a Blueprint for Scheria and Atlantis
Crete as a blueprint for Homer’s Scheria and Plato’s Atlantis is a bit complicated story. Crete was named Kaftor in the Bible (Genesis 10:14; Deuteronomium 2:23; Jeremia 47:4; Amos 9:7; Ezechiël 25:16). Their inhabitants were the Philistines whose god was Dagon who was the blueprint for Poseidon (Brown in Louden, 2011, p. 237). Dagon came from Babylon (Encyclopedia of Religion, Vol 1, in Woodrow, 1981, p. 84). Dagon was a graingod (Black & Green, 2014, p. 56, par. Dagan) which was a reference to the Valley of Megiddo where the Armagedon will start. This Valley is Israel’s granary. Dagon was imaged as Neptune but with thick black hair and a beard. He looked both as the Greek God Zeus and the prophet Mohammed.
These Philistines were very likely the Sea Peoples of the past. They colonized Gaza where in our days their heirs, the Palestines live. The Palestines are not descendants of the Philistines but they are their heirs. Gaza exists of five main cities: Ekron, Gat, Gaza, Ashdod and Ashkelon. These five cities resonate with both the five twin kings of Atlantis and the five sided pyramid in the Cydonia region on Mars. Cydonia was also a city on Crete which seems to be present day Chania.
I believe that these Philistines of Crete were the blueprint for the mysterious Phaeacians in Homer’s Odyssey, book 6 & 13. While in book 15 of the Odyssey the Phoenicians were mentioned. They were the Canaanites. Both these Canaanites and the Phoenicians were the arch enemies of the Israelites. The Phaeacians were the inhabitants of the island Scheria in Homer’s Odyssey.
The name Scheria was probably derived from the Babylonian word ‘Seri’ that means desert (Fatuhi, 2012, p. 208). In the Bible there were two mountains named Seir (Genesis 14:6; Deuteronomium 2:1 versus Deuteronomium 2:5). One of these Seir mountains was also named ‘Schera’ or ‘Scherah’ (David Rumsey Map Collection, 1853 & 1875 in Matheny, 2011, p. 342). The Seir mountain in Genesis 14:6 was also named ‘Aschar’ that sounds as Assur. Aschar means “hairy” (Strong’s Concordance #8165). This was a reference to Esau who was hairy. And there was a Babylonian deity who was a spouse of the god Assur (Assyria) and whose name was ‘Sherua’ (Saggs, 1966, p. 344).
Atlantis existed according to Plato 9000 years before his time. What did Plato mean with this? Did Atlantis exist 9000 years before Plato told the story or before his 35th or 72th birthday? Did Atlantis exist exactly 9000 years earlier or did it exist 8999 or 9010 years earlier? As Atlantis was bigger than Turkey and Libya together. Was Atlantis one centimeter, one kilometer or thousand kilometers bigger than Libya and Turkey? Or was it twice as big as Turkey and Libya together? Did Plato know how big Libya was at all? As we have seen, Homer’s island Scheria existed in the time of the Phoenicians. Both Atlantis and Scheria existed in different time frames. Scheria breathed the athmosphere of Crete while Atlantis is clearly End Times Babylon.
But nothing is what it seems here. Thematically Scheria and Atlantis are the same island Homer & Scheria. (z.j.). Let us not be misguided by apparent contradictionaries. Scheria, Ogygia, Ithaka but also Troy and Avalon were all the same island as Atlantis which is EndTimes Bablyon in Revelation 17 & 18, as it was mirrored in time and geography within the concept of Tzafon.
Was Crete Atlantis? The answer is “yes” and “no”. Crete was a next step or another stage in the evolving Atlantis model that had started before the Flood when the serpent invaded the Garden of Eden. The next step was the city of Henoch as a blueprint for Atlantis. After the Flood it was Crete, Gaza, Cairo (sphinx), Nebuchanedzar’s Babylon, Tyrus that were snaking as a serpent through the history, fulfilling the Atlantis model. The fulfillment of Atlantis will be in the End Times when Babylon will rise from the ashes and fall again. The eclipse in Homer’s Odyssey 20.356-357 corresponds with the same event in Acts 2:20 when darkness will fall upon the earth and Babylon is being destroyed. This midnight event is named Tzafon.
