Atlantis FOUND: Lost city found in Israel – Bible proves Gilgal ruins revelation | Weird | News

Published

The lost city of Atlantis is a mythical island, believed by many to be lost to time. Atlantis was first described by the Greek philosopher Plato as early as the year 350BC. The city is said to have suffered a cataclysmic tragedy during which it was permanently submerged somewhere in the Mediterranean or the Atlantic Ocean. However, there are some who believe Atlantis never truly disappeared in the depths of the oceans and its ruins are somewhere out there to be found.

One of these conspiracy theorists is biblical researcher Ryan Pitterson, author of Judgment of the Nephilim.

The book author is convinced Plato’s description of the ancient city matches biblical records of the Israeli city of Gilgal Refaim, the ruins of which still exist today.

According to Mr Pitterson, the saga of Atlantis falls in line with the Bible’s incredible tales of superhuman giants known as the Nephilim.

The Nephilim were a race of half-human, half-angelic beings fathered by fallen angels.

Speaking to Coast to Coast AM radio, Mr Pitterson said this description matches the tale of the Greek god Poseidon, who fathered children with a human woman on Atlantis.

Mr Pitterson said: “One example that really stood out for me is Plato’s description of Atlantis and so, it’s almost remarkable how similar the description of Ezekiel 31, which basically describes the rise of this falling angle spawning many children having a kingdom with an abundance of resources and rivers and also sort of military power and then having it crumble.

“So what I did, is basically drew some parallels between that and the writings of Plato in describing Atlantis.

“First of, in Plato’s account, it was the Greek god Poseidon who fell in love with a human woman and impregnated her.

“So right from the onset it was a god coming to an Earthly realm and conceiving a child with a human woman in the same fashion of Genesis 6.

“So the description of Atlantis is that it had all sorts of great minerals – gold, precious minerals and in a biblical account in Genesis 2, we’re told the rivers that ran out of Eden encompassed the whole line of Avila.

All of this stood out to the book author in a way that perfectly matched Plato’s description of the lost city.

In particular, Atlantis is said to have been built outwards in concentric circles with water running through the city.

Mr Pitterson said: “I actually include an image, an aerial photos of Gilgal Refaim, which is known as the Wheel of the Giant, which is in the Golan Heights.”

This supposedly matches the five concentric circles of Gilgal, which was built using 40,000 tonnes of rock.

The parallels, the biblical conspiracy said, are truly “remarkable”.

Today, the ancient ruins of Gilgal are found near Argaman in the Jordan Valle.

What is interesting is Plato’s description of Atlantis – it was an island larger than Ancient Libya and Asia Minor combined.

According to Plato, the city was inhabited by the offspring of Poseidon, who lived across a number of kingdoms, but also a central city on the island.

A fragment from Plato’s Timaeus reads: “In the centre was a holy temple dedicated to Cleito and Poseidon, which remained inaccessible, and was surrounded by an enclosure of gold; this was the spot in which they originally begat the race of the ten princes, and thither they annually brought the fruits of the earth in their season from all the ten portions, and performed sacrifices to each of them.

“Here, too, was Poseidon’s own temple, of a stadium in length and half a stadium in width, and of a proportionate height, having a sort of barbaric splendour.

“All the outside of the temple, with the exception of the pinnacles, they covered with silver, and the pinnacles with gold.

“In the interior of the temple the roof was of ivory, adorned everywhere with gold and silver and orichalcum; all the other parts of the walls and pillars and floor they lined with orichalcum.”

However, it is hard to gather today whether any of these descriptions match up with the ruins of Gilgal in Israel.

There is also very little evidence to suggest Atlantis existed outside of Plato’s work.

According to James Romm, a professor of classics at Bard College in Annandale, New York, the story of Atlantis is a captivating mystery.

But Atlantis is just a story without any basis in fact or archaeological evidence.

Tiger-Cats claim victory against the Argos to maintain home record on Labour Day

Published

on

By

The Hamilton Tiger-Cats were at their devastating best against the Toronto Argonauts when the two locked horns on Labour Day at the Tim Hortons Field.

Just like with previous Labour Day fixtures, the Ticats produced a stellar performance with Dane Evans throwing two touchdown passes while Frankie Williams scored on a 67-yard punt return as they claimed a 32-19 victory on Monday. With this vital win, the Ticats extended their Labour Day home record to 7-0.

For players and fans of the Tiger-Cats, games on Labour Day are a lot more special and losing is something the Ticats aren’t used to.

“We know the fans are going to be behind us, we know Toronto is going to be chippy, we know it’s going to be sunny; we know it’s going to be windy. Everything that happened (Monday) we prepared for. There is something extremely special about Tim Hortons Field on Labour Day . . . you can feel it in the air, I can’t put it into words,” said Evans.

After the COVID-19 induced hiatus, the CFL is back in full action and fans can now bet on their favourite teams and just like with online slots Canada, real money can be won. Hamilton (2-2) recorded its second straight win to move into a tie atop the CFL East Division standings with Montreal Alouettes (2-2). Also, the Ticats lead the overall Labour Day series with Toronto 36-13-1.

In the sun-drenched gathering of 15,000—the maximum allowed under Ontario government COVID-19 protocols—the fans loved every minute of this feisty game. After all, this was the Ticats first home game in 659 days, since their 36-16 East Division final win over Edmonton in November 2019.

The contest between the Ticats and Argos was certainly not bereft of emotions, typical of a Labour Day fixture, as it ended with an on-field melee. But the Argos often found themselves on the wrong end of the decisions with several penalty calls and most of the game’s explosive plays.

Hamilton quarterback Evans completed 21-of-29 passing for 248 yards and the two touchdowns while Toronto’s make-shift quarterback Arbuckle completed 18-of-32 attempts for 207 yards. Arbuckle also made a touchdown and two interceptions before eventually being substituted by McLeod Bethel-Thompson.

Bethel-Thompson made an eight-yard TD pass to wide receiver Eric Rogers late in the final quarter of the game.

“They got after us a bit . . . we didn’t block, or pass protect well,” said Ryan Dinwiddie, rookie head coach of the Argos in a post-match interview. “They just kicked our butts; we’ve got to come back and be a better team next week.”

The Labour Day contest was the first of four fixtures this year between Toronto and Hamilton. The two teams would face off again on Friday at BMO Field. Afterwards, the Tim Hortons Field will play host to the Argonauts again on Oct. 11 with the regular-season finale scheduled for Nov. 12 in Toronto.

Roughriders looking to bounce back after Labor Day defeat

Published

By

In what an unusual feeling for the Saskatchewan Roughriders, they would now need to dust themselves up after a 23-8 loss to the Winnipeg Blue Bombers in what was a Labor Day Classic showdown in front of a full capacity crowd at Mosaic stadium.

Craig Dickenson, head coach of the Riders, witnessed his team with an unbeaten record get utterly dominated by a more superior team from Winnipeg. Now, he has got a lot of work on his hands getting his team back to winning ways as they visit the Banjo Bowl next.

“We’re going to see what we’re made of now…the jury’s out,” said Dickenson.

Dan Clark, who played centre for the Riders expressed his disappointment in losing what was “the biggest game of the year”.

 “If you lose every other game, you don’t want to lose that one. We’ve just got to take the next step,” said Clark in a report. “There are 12 steps to the Grey Cup left and it’s just about taking that next step and focusing on what Saturday will bring.”

With their first defeat to Winnipeg, the Riders (3-1) now rank second place in the CFL’s West Division, trailing the Bombers by one victory (4-1). However, the Riders will have the chance to even the season series during their trip to Winnipeg this Saturday. With the CFL heating up, fans can now enjoy online sports betting Canada as they look forward to their team’s victory.

The Rider’s offensive line will once again have a busy time dealing with the Blue Bombers’ defence.

Quarterback Cody Fajardo, who played one of the best games of his career two weeks earlier, had quite a stinker against the Bombers in the Labour Day Classic—which is the most anticipated game for Rider fans.

Fajardo had a 59 per cent completion percentage which wasn’t quite indicative of what the actual figure was considering he was at 50 per cent before going on a late drive in the final quarter with the Bombers already becoming laid back just to protect the win.

Fajardo also registered a personal worst when he threw three interceptions, but in all fairness, he was always swarmed by the Bomber’s defence.

While Fajardo has claimed responsibility for the loss and letting his teammates down, many would be curious to see how the team fares in their next game and with less than a week of preparation.

Dickenson is confident that his team would improve during their rematch in the 17th edition of the Banjo Bowl in Winnipeg. The only challenge now would be the loss of home advantage and dealing with the noisy home crowd, he added.

Canadian report reveals spike in food-related litter during pandemic

Published

on

By

TORONTO — Restaurants’ inability to offer their usual dine-in service during much of 2020 may explain why an unusually high amount of food-related litter was found across the country, a new report says.

The Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup (GCSC) is an annual program in which volunteers are encouraged to clean up green spaces and other natural areas.

Last year, single-use food and beverage containers made up 26.6 per cent of waste collected through the program – nearly twice as high a percentage as in 2019, before the pandemic.

“We suspect the change may be one of the many implications of COVID-19, including more people ordering restaurant takeaway and consuming more individually packaged foods,” GCSC spokesperson Julia Wakeling said in a press release.

While food- and beverage-related litter accounted for a greater percentage of waste uncovered by GCSC than in the past, it wasn’t the single largest category of items picked up through the program last year.

That dubious honour goes to cigarette butts and other smoking-related paraphernalia, which comprised nearly 29 per cent of all items collected. There were more than 83,000 cigarette butts among the 42,000 kilograms of waste found and clean up last year.

So-called “tiny trash” – little pieces of plastic and foam – also accounted for a sizeable share of the waste, making up 26.8 per cent of the total haul.

In addition to smoking-related items and tiny trash, the main pieces of litter removed by GCSC volunteers last year included nearly 22,000 food wrappers, more than 17,500 pieces of paper, more than 13,000 bottle caps and more than 10,000 beverage cans.

Discarded face masks and other forms of personal protective equipment were also detected and cleaned up, although not tallied in their own category.  PPE waste has been repeatedly cited as a concern by environmental advocates during the pandemic; a robin in Chilliwack, B.C. is the earliest known example of an animal that died due to coronavirus-related litter.

The GCSC is an annual program organized by Ocean Wise and the World Wildlife Fund Canada. Its operations were disrupted by the pandemic as well; only 15,000 volunteers took part in the program last year, versus 85,000 in 2019, due to delays and public health restrictions making large group clean-ups impossible.

Still, there was GCSC participation from every province and the Northwest Territories in 2020. Nearly half of the volunteers who took part were based in B.C., where the program began in 1994.

Data from past GCSC reports was used as part of the research backing Canada’s ban on certain single-use plastic items, which is scheduled to take effect by the end of 2021.
