Thorwald C. Franke reviews Roland Färber and Rita Gautschy’s adaptation of the book Zeit in den Kulturen des Altertums. I miss the caveats that Egyptian chronology is greatly exaggerated to make history more impressive. I also miss in the review the biblical written historiography from Adam, – mentioned toledot – against the often oral traditions in Egypt and Greece. I miss in the review the system of the eonian times (Ephesians 3:9, 11). And I miss the principle of 500 and 1000 year stages that we see in the Biblical timeline. To make the battle to Atlantis: If Atlantis existed in a past we are in a tricky dilemma because Atlantis could never have existed in the first two eons. At most, Atlantis was present in blueprint in the city of Enoch in Genesis 4.
Citate: a concession to Egyptian lore
All these considerations make it clear to me that we have enough reasons to start from the Hebrew original rather than the Greek translation. It appears that the translators of the LXX in Alexandria deliberately and systematically increased the begetting ages in Genesis 5 and 11. This procedure was a concession to the Egyptian king list traditions to enlarge and extend Egyptian history for many centuries. To this day, our knowledge of the ancient history of the Middle East is also largely based on this falsified Egyptian chronology. If we do not recognize this, we are missing the Divine signature of perfection that characterizes the Hebrew reckoning. And then we also miss the interesting fact that within two decades the sixth millennium will pass into the seventh millennium… the seventh day!
Real chronology from the creation of Adam to the end of the Third Aion.
