Yonaguni is a small island south-west of Okinawa in the Japanese archipelago. In 1988, scuba divers led by Kihachiro Aratake discovered an enormous stone structure on the seabed off the coast of Yonaguni.
The structure lay more than 75 feet below the surface. Investigation showed it was 600 feet long, 450 feet wide and 90 feet high. The locals decided it was a natural formation.
Ten years later, the experts weren't so sure. The first geologist to investigate the site was Professor Masaki Kimura of Ryuku University on Okinawa. In April 1998, he discovered a structure divided into five distinct layers and decided it had to be manmade. It is easy to see why. Underwater photographs and video footage reveal a stepped, ziggurat-like monument of extraordinary proportions.
Each step is about 3 feet high with clean edges and sharp angles. There is also an archway and two parallel monoliths among other intriguing features like drainage channels. Further investigation led to the discovery of smaller satellite ziggurats near the main edifice.
Each is about 30 feet wide and 6 feet high. Each appears to be constructed of stepped slabs. Divers also found what looks like a road surrounding the main structure.
Robert Schoch, the American geologist who re-dated the sphinx, dived to examine the Yonaguni Monument and later commented that while natural water erosion and rock splitting might possibly produce a structure of this type, he had never seen anything quite like it before.
Professor Kimura was even more forthcoming. He maintained bluntly that if the sharp steps were the result of natural erosion there would be debris on the seabed surrounding them. In fact, there is none.Conventional dating puts this Japanese culture at a time when scientists thought only primitive hunter gatherers worked on the land and had very limited knowledge. We know this is proof of a flood, and of the global scale that it occured in Noah's time.
Four, six and eight spoked wheels have been found under the Red Sea. These wheels were typical of the wheels used in the 18th Dynasty at the time of Moses and the Red Sea Exodus.
Archeologists recovered the hub of a wheel with the remains of eight spokes and gave this significant find to Nassif Mohammed Hassan, Director of Antiquities in Cairo. Mr. Hassan immediately identified the artifact as a chariot wheel dating over 3500 years ago during the 18th Dynasty, the only time the ancient Egyptians used an eight spoked wheel. The hub and spokes are on display in Cairo, Egypt
A group of 70 or so "books", each with between five and 15 lead leaves bound by lead rings, was apparently discovered in a remote arid valley in northern Jordan somewhere between 2005 and 2007. A flash flood had exposed two niches inside of a cave, one marked with a candlestick, and one with the ancient Jewish menorah.
The books, or "codices", were apparently cast in lead, before being bound by lead rings.Their leaves - which are mostly about the size of a credit card - contain text in Ancient Hebrew, most of which is in code.
The relics feature signs early Christians would have interpreted as Jesus, and makes reference to Him as the Messiah.
The find is significant in the fact that this very well could be the earliest works of Christianity\early Saints and not just in scroll form but book form. Even becoming more significant than the Dead Sea Scrolls. In one of the squares there appears to be a Menorah which Jews were forbidden to represent because it resided in the Holy of Holies. In otherwards, Jesus being equal with the presence of God.
Archaeologists uncover proof that Bethlehem existed centuries pre-Jesus
The tiny clay seal is imprinted with three lines of ancient Hebrew script that include the word "Bethlehem"."This is the first time the name Bethlehem appears outside the Bible in an inscription from the First Temple period," the years 1006 BC to 586 BC. The coin-sized remnant of the seal proves that Bethlehem - first mentioned in the Book of Genesis - was indeed a city in the Kingdom of Judah, and possibly also in earlier periods
