I think you did a great research, tell me if I am wrong but as I undertsood; The Ark of Covenant could be more like "Transdimensional Atomic Remolecularizer" but to complex to handle for us?Addendum to Admiral Piri Reis and Oak Island and the Sect
It is curious how the name ‘Germain’ should crop up twice in my researches for this article when one considers that the C’s have used the term ‘Germaine’ on a few occasions in the transcripts, for example, where they said “it was not germaine” in relation to something the famous American psychic Edgar Cayce had said. When Laura subsequently interrogated them about their funny spelling of the word ‘germane’ in the Session 12 December dated 1998, they had this to say on the subject:
Q: Well, while we are on the subject of spelling, you DO use unusual spelling from time to time, though normally you are very good spellers. What rules direct your spelling since it is not always according to modern usage?
A: No rules, just clues, as allways.
Q: Does this refer also to the way you spell 'germain'? When you say 'it is not germain,' you spell it differently from the way someone would spell it if just saying that something is not relevant.
A: Tis French, as in clue to be.
We have already looked at the possible connections between the C’s use of ‘Germain’ and the alchemist Comte de Saint-Germain and his possible links to the Stuart Jacobite Princes, especially Bonnie Prince Charlie (see my earlier article ‘It is not Germaine’). We have also seen how the deposed English monarch, King James (Stuart) II, created his court in exile at Saint Germains near to Paris.
I had noted that the C’s had used the word “Tis”, which is an old English way of saying “this is”, rather as we have looked at their use of “both hither and yon” above in relation to those ‘tricky’ Rosicrucians. The same can also be said of their spelling of the word “allways”, which is how a 16th century Englishman might have spelt the word ‘always’. Evidently, the C’s were trying to draw our attention to an earlier age by using old English idioms but the clue in this case is meant to be French. Well I came across two further example of a reference to ‘Germain’ in my researches on the Huguenots, both of which involved an historic edict or treaty.
The first example was the Edict of Saint-Germain:
Following the accidental death of King Henry II of France in 1559, his son succeeded as King Francis II along with his wife, the Queen Consort, also known as Mary, Queen of Scots (i.e., Mary Stuart - the mother of the future King James I of England). During the eighteen months of the reign of Francis II, Mary encouraged a policy of rounding up French Huguenots on charges of heresy and putting them in front of Catholic judges, and employing torture and burning as punishments for dissenters. Mary returned to Scotland a widow, in the summer of 1561 (she would, of course, be subsequently deposed as Queen of Scotland, imprisoned and eventually executed by her cousin Queen Elizabeth I of England).
In 1561, the Edict of Orléans declared an end to the persecution, and the Edict of Saint-Germain of January 1562 formally recognised the Huguenots for the first time. However, these measures only disguised the growing tensions between Protestants and Catholics.
In what became known as the St. Bartholomew's Day Massacre of 24 August – 3 October 1572, Catholics killed thousands of Huguenots in Paris and similar massacres took place in other towns in the following weeks. The main provincial towns and cities experiencing massacres were Aix, Bordeaux, Bourges, Lyons, Meaux, Orléans, Rouen, Toulouse, and Troyes. Queen Catherine de Medici, the wife of King Henry II and mother of Kings Francis II, Charles IX and Henry III, has come to be blamed for the excessive persecutions carried out under her sons' rule, and in particular, for her part in the St. Bartholomew’s Day Massacre.
The second example involved the Treaty of Saint-Germain-en-Laye:
Samuel Champlain (see article above) had overwintered in Quebec. Supplies were low, and English merchants sacked Cap Tourmente in early July 1628. A war had broken out between France and England, and Charles I of England had issued letters of marque that authorized the capture of French shipping and its colonies in North America. Champlain received a summons to surrender on July 10 from the Kirke brothers, two Scottish brothers who were working for the English Government as corsairs or privateers. Champlain refused to deal with them, misleading them to believe that Quebec's defences were better than they actually were (Champlain had only 50 pounds of gunpowder to defend the community). Having been successfully bluffed, they withdrew but encountered and captured the French supply fleet, cutting off that year's supplies to the colony. By the spring of 1629 supplies were dangerously low and Champlain was forced to send people to Gaspé and into Indian communities to conserve rations. On July 19, the Kirke brothers arrived before Quebec after intercepting Champlain's plea for help, and Champlain was forced to surrender the colony. Many colonists were transported first to England and then to France by the Kirkes, but Champlain remained in London to begin the process of regaining the colony. A peace treaty had been signed in April 1629, three months before the surrender, and, under the terms of that treaty, Quebec and other prizes that were taken by the Kirkes after the treaty were to be returned. It was not until the 1632 Treaty of Saint-Germain-en-Laye, however, that Quebec was formally given back to France. David Kirke was rewarded when Charles I knighted him and gave him a charter for Newfoundland.
It so happens, that Saint-Germain-en-Laye is a town with strong royal associations. It is also best known in France as the birthplace of King Louis XIV, the French monarch who would crack down severely on the Huguenots, just as Queen Catherine de Medici had done in the St. Bartholomew’s Day Massacre of 1572, and the same king who would get so upset at Nicolas Poussin’s painting of the Shepherds of Arcadia that he had to obtain it at any cost.
The town itself is named after Saint Germain (Latin: Germanus; c. 496 – 28 May 576) who was the bishop of Paris, King Childebert, a Frankish king of the Merovingian dynasty, arranging for his consecration in 555 AD.
It may, of course, just be a mere coincidence that the Edict of Saint-Germain and the Treaty of Saint-Germain-en-Laye mentioned above should both contain the name ‘Germain’ and be related through these official documents and proclamations to the Huguenots. However, the C’s can be very subtle in their clues, so it could be that through their use of the word ‘germain’ they were pointing to a connection between the Huguenots, the Rosicrucians, the enclave of alchemists in the Pyrenees, the Count of Saint-Germain (an alchemist and possible Rosicrucian) and the Stuart monarchs and princes with their strong links to Scottish Rite Freemasonry. I shall leave that to you to judge.
Finally, with regard to Christopher Columbus and his role in discovering the New World, I have become aware just recently that there was far more to this man than meets the historical eye. It would seem that he was deeply devout and was a Third Order Member of the Franciscan Friars founded by St Francis of Assisi. In later life he wrote a ‘Book of Prophecies’. Here is an excerpt from it that shows us a very different side to the man:
“At a very early age I began to sail upon the ocean. For more than forty years, I have sailed everywhere that people go. I prayed to the most merciful Lord about my heart's great desire, and He gave me the spirit and the intelligence for the task: seafaring, astronomy, geometry, arithmetic, skill in drafting spherical maps and placing correctly the cities, rivers, mountains and ports. I also studied cosmology, history, chronology and philosophy. It was the Lord who put into my mind (I could feel His hand upon me) the fact that it would be possible to sail from here to the Indies. All who heard of my project rejected it with laughter, ridiculing me. There is no questions that the inspiration was from the Holy Spirit, because he comforted me with rays of marvellous illumination from the Holy Scriptures, a strong and clear testimony from the 44 books of the Old Testament, from the four Gospels, and from the 23 Epistles of the blessed Apostles, encouraging me continually to press forward; and without ceasing for a moment they now encourage me to make haste.
Our Lord Jesus desired to perform a very obvious miracle in the voyage to the Indies, to comfort me and the people of God. I spent seven years in the royal court, discussing the matter with many persons of great reputation and wisdom in all the arts; and in the end they concluded that it was all foolishness, so they gave it up. But since things generally came to pass that were predicted by our Saviour Jesus Christ, we should also believe that this particular prophecy will come to pass. In support of this, I offer the gospel text, Matthew 24:35, in which Jesus said that all things would pass away, but not His marvellous Word. He also affirmed that it was necessary that all things be fulfilled that were prophesied by Himself and by the prophets. I said that I would state my reasons. I hold alone to the sacred and Holy Scriptures, and to the interpretations of prophecy given by certain devout persons. It is possible that those who see this book will accuse me of being unlearned in literature, of being a layman and a sailor. I reply with the words of Matthew 11:25: "Lord, because thou has hid these things from the wise the prudent, and hath revealed them unto babes." The Holy Scripture testifies in the Old Testament by our Redeemer Jesus Christ, that the world must come to an end. The signs of when this must happen are given by Matthew, Mark and Luke. The prophets also predicted many things about it. Our Redeemer Jesus Christ said that before the end of the world, all things must come to pass that had been written by the prophets. The prophets wrote in various ways. Isaiah is the one most praised by Jerome, Augustine and by the other theologians. They all say that Isaiah was not only a prophet, but an evangelist as well. Isaiah goes into great detail in describing future events and in calling all people to our holy faith.
Most of the prophecies of Holy Scripture have been fulfilled already...I am a most unworthy sinner, but I have cried out to the Lord for grace and mercy, and they have covered me completely. I have found the sweetest consolations since I made it my whole purpose to enjoy His marvellous presence.
For the execution of the journey to the Indies I did not make use of intelligence, mathematics or maps. It is simply the fulfilment of what Isaiah had prophesied. All this is what I desire to write down for you in this book.
No one should fear to undertake any task in the name of our Saviour, if it is according to His sovereign will even though He gives advice. He lacks nothing that it is in the power of men to give Him. Oh what a gracious Lord, who desires that people should perform for Him those things for which He holds Himself responsible! Day and night moment by moment, everyone should express to Him their most devoted gratitude.
I said that some of the prophecies remained yet to be fulfilled. These are great and wonderful things for the Earth, and the signs are that the Lord is hastening the end. The fact that the gospel must still be preached to so many lands in such a short time - this is what convinces me. “
Cynics may, of course, say that this was an example of a man excusing any wrongdoing by falling back on religion as an excuse for his actions, particularly if he thinks it is predestined by scripture. However, it is an inescapable fact that the discovery of the New World did not end well for millions of the indigenous natives of the Americas.
