altar of Moloch
Gehenna "Gehenna" is derived from "Ge Hinnom," meaning "Valley of
Hinnom." "Ge Hinnom" is also called "Gai ben-Hinnom," meaning "valley of
Hinnom's son." The valley is outside the south wall of ancient Jerusalem, and
stretches from the foot of Mount Zion eastward to Kidron Valley.
Gehenna is mentioned 13 times in 11 different verses in the Bible (King
James Version) as "valley of Hinnom," "valley of the son of Hinnom" or "valley
of the children of Hinnom."
Gehenna is not described as a spiritual
hell but a literal valley in
Jerusalem (Joshua 15:8, Joshua 18:16, 2nd Kings 23:10, 2 Chronicles 28:3, 2nd
Chronicles 33:6,Nehemiah 11:30, Jeremiah 7:31~32, Jeremiah 19:2, Jeremiah 19:6,
The word Gehenna (Gehennem, Jahannam) also occurs in
the Muslim holy book, the Qur'an, as a place of torment for sinners or Islamic
equivalent to hell.
southwestern gate of Jerusalem, overlooking the valley, came to be known as
"The Gate of the Valley". Jeremiah 7:31; 19:2-6; 32:35; the Book of Jeremiah
(2:23) speaks of residents worshiping Moloch and committing abominations which
foreshadowed the destruction of Jerusalem.
Moloch comes from a Semitic root meaning
"king". Moloch, meaning "King of
Deifications" or "Supreme God", was Semitically conceptualized in a pattern
after that of El accept that
Moloch required parents to
sacrifice their children on
a stone altar. This form of human
sacrificial worship was practiced by the
Canaanites, the Phoenicians and related cultures in North Africa and the
Levant. Moloch is comparable to the gnostic
Hebrew Demiurge who faultily
The practice was outlawed by King
Josiah (2 Kings, 23:10).
"Thou shalt not let any of thy seed pass
through the fire to Moloch" Leviticus 18:21
Biblical commentator Rashi
explains that priests would bang on drums so fathers would not hear the
groans of children being sacrificed.
Hence the name Topheth.
Topheth is believed to be a location in the Valley of Hinnom, where the
sacrificed children to the
deification Moloch by burning them alive.
After the practice of child
sacrifice was outlawed by King Josiah, the valley became a refuse site
where animal carcasses, waste and the bodies of criminals were dumped, with
fires permanently burning to keep disease at bay.
Tophet became a
synonym for hell.
The only place known where a similar
ritual still occurs is at Bohemian Grove in
Monte Rio, California when Care is placed
on a stone altar and immolated in the
deification and idol worship of the
stone owl - Moloch.
Moloch has been used figuratively in
English literature from John Milton's Paradise Lost (1667) to Allen Ginsberg's
"Howl" (1955), to refer to a person or thing demanding or requiring a very

volcanic eruptions cool the
worldOn June 8, 1783 the Skaptar Jokull Volcano in Iceland
exploded sending huge clouds of ash high into the sky. Summer never came to the
Arctic that year. All along the Bering Sea coast and Norton Sound area the
Eskimos starved to death.
The volcanic cloud from the Icelandic volcano drifted across the Pacific Ocean
reaching Japan where 1783 became known as the year summer never came. Sulfurous
gases combined with water vapor high in the atmosphere to produce a cloud of
tiny sulfuric acid crystals which reflected a considerable amount of solar
radiation back out into space. This lowered the temperature of the earth by
about a degree Celsius, and these effects were felt for about two years.
On April 5, 1815, Mount Tambora Sumbawa, Indonesia erupted with such
violence explosions could be heard for 1,000 miles. Ash fell two feet deep over
850 miles away. Darkness cloaked a 300 mile area around the volcano for three
days. Mount Tambora lost 4,100 feet in height and threw out an estimated 36.4
cubic miles of debris. Volcanic debris was hurled into the atmosphere where it
circled the earth, darkened the sky and eventually helped to make 1816 known as
the year without a summer. In the northeastern part of the United States and
the Ohio Valley frost, ice and snow were common in June; heavy frosts
throughout July and even ice storms; frost and ice were common in August. Snow
fell in Springfield, Massachusetts on September 11, and colder weather settled
in again during the final days of September with ice up to one-fourth inch
thick. October, although fairly normal, had its share of frost and ice.
Coseguina Volcano in Nicaragua erupted in January of 1835. The
volcano's erupted continuously for seven hours creating total darkness within a
radius of 50 miles of the volcano. This eruption of Coseguina was blamed for
the cool summer of 1836. That summer was nearly as cold as the summer of 1816
in western Pennsylvania and northeastern Ohio. There were frosts in every month
of the year, and the only true summer weather was limited to the first 14 days
of September. During the period 1817-1890, 1836 had the coldest summer of
On August 26 1883 Krakatau(Krakatoa) erupted creating a
gigantic cloud of ash that shot upward to a height of 17 miles and spread out
like a huge pine tree. On August 27 the darkness from Krakatau (Krakatoa)
eruption extended 100 miles out from the volcano with the ash cloud from
Krakatau (Krakatoa) rising an estimated 50,000 feet above the
Earth's surface. Then came a second eruption
estimated to be equal to 200 megatons of TNT - about 13,000 times the yield of
the Little Boy bomb (13 to 16 KT)
that devastated Hiroshima, Japan, and four times the yield of the Tsar
Bomba (50 MT), the largest nuclear weapon ever built. The 1883 eruption ejected
approximately 21 cubic kilometres (5.0 cu mi) of rock, ash, and pumice, and
generated the loudest sound historically reported: the cataclysmic explosion
was distinctly heard as far away as Perth in Australia approximately 1,930
miles (3,110 km), and the island of Rodrigues near Mauritius approximately
3,000 miles (5,000 km) distant. The
sound waves from the explosion circled the Earth
seven times. During the winter
of 1883-1884, snow in Scotland, Holland, northern Germany and different parts
of the United States was found to contain tiny particles of volcanic dust. The
dust particles from Krakatau(Krakatoa) could be seen on a clear day ringing the
sun. The mean global temperature in 1884 was lowered 0.27C.
agricultural concerns created the first charting of crop yields.
dust of the Tibetan Plateau, with much thinking and careful calculation, the
detonation of thermonuclear warheads could blast fine particulate into the
upper atmosphere working in much the same way as Krakatoa. The Tibetan Plateau
is a significant dust source area of great importance. Synoptic dynamics and
remote sensing tracing of a dust storm on 3 to 5 March, 2003 in Lhasa on South
Tibet demonstrate that the Tibetan Plateau possesses all factors and conditions
of generating dust storms. Accompanied with this dust storm is a strong
ascending stream on the Plateau which has raised various sizes of dust
particles into different levels. The lifted coarse particles were largely
fallen down and accumulated as loess on the eastern Tibetan Plateau, and the
fine particles were translated by the westerly jet and subsided in the northern
Pacific Ocean. The spatial-temporal distribution of dust-storms between years
1961 and 2000 on the Plateau shows that dust-storms mainly occur in
winter and early spring with
high frequency, and the path of
dust storm moves gradually from south to north, which is closely coupled
with the northward moving of the westerly jet from
winter to spring over the
Tibetan Plateau. The Tibetan Plateau is one of the key dust source areas for
long-distance transport because its high occurring frequency and elevation
cause fine particles easily to be lifted into the zone of the westerly jet.

This web site is not a commercial web site and
is presented for educational purposes only.
This website defines a new religious
ideology to which its author adheres. The author feels that the falsification
of reality outside personal experience has created a populace unable to discern
propaganda from reality and that this has been done purposefully by an
international corporate cartel through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt
version of reality on the human race. Religious intolerance occurs when any
group refuses to tolerate religious practices, religious beliefs or persons due
to their religious ideology. This web site marks the founding of the religion
aptly named The Truth of the Way of Life - a rational gnostic mystery religion
based on reason which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no
supreme leader, no church buildings and in which each and every individual is
encouraged to develop a personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer
through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the
spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The
Truth of the Way of Life are spelled out in detail on this web site by the
author. Violent acts against individuals due to their religious beliefs in
America is considered a hate crime."
This web site in no way
condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the violence
that is already occurring due to the international corporate cartels desire to
control the human race. The international corporate cartel already controls the
world central banking system, mass media worldwide, the global industrial
military entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse of morals,
the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of global
ecosystems. Civilization is based on cooperation. Cooperation does not occur at
the point of a gun.
American social mores and values have declined
precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international cartel has
garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the
populace in general through mass media by pressing emotional buttons which have
been preprogrammed into the population through prior mass media psychological
operations. The results have been the destruction of the family and the
destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the corrupt
international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction and
coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been
directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that
further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.
