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

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.

Ottawa transit commission hopes to prioritize COVID-19 vaccines for OC Transpo workers

Editor

By

Ottawa’s transit commission is pushing local and provincial health officials to recognize the role OC Transpo operators have played in keeping the city running during the COVID-19 pandemic, hoping to bump train and bus drivers in the vaccination queue amid a recent surge in coronavirus infections affecting transit workers.

More than 100 OC Transpo staff across the entire organization have tested positive for the coronavirus since the start of the pandemic, according to an update at Wednesday morning’s transit commission meeting.

Of those cases, 26 employees are currently recovering from the disease in self-isolation.

OC Transpo has seen a recent jump in COVID-19 cases, with Ottawa city council receiving reports of eight operators testing positive for the virus over a recent eight-day period.

Transit commissioner Sarah Wright-Gilbert attempted to find out how many of the total cases are traced to workplace transmission, but OC Transpo boss John Manconi said he’s been advised by medical officer of health Dr. Vera Etches that he can’t share that information for privacy reasons.

Transit operators are listed in the second priority group of essential workers as part of Ontario’s COVID-19 vaccine sequencing plans, but several commissioners speaking Wednesday wanted to get the city’s bus and train drivers bumped higher in the order.

Councillors Riley Brockington and Glen Gower both put forward motions looking to get front-line OC Transpo employees prioritization in vaccine sequencing, but others pointed out that the much-debated public health topic of who gets the vaccine and when is well beyond the scope of the transit commission.

“We are not in a position in transit commission to be decreeing, or making an edict, about what group of essential workers is more at risk than others and should be prioritized. That should be left up to public health experts,” Wright-Gilbert said.

Knoxdale-Merivale Coun. Keith Egli, who also chairs the Ottawa Board of Health, reflected on the board’s four-plus-hour meeting on Monday evening, during which vaccine sequencing and prioritizing essential workers dominated the conversation.

“Vaccine sequencing is obviously a very difficult maze to get through,” he said.

COVID-19: Ottawa police announce end of 24-7 presence at Ontario-Quebec border

Less than two days after the Ontario government’s latest COVID-19 restrictions came into effect, calling for non-essential traffic to be stopped at the province’s borders with Quebec and Manitoba, the Ottawa Police Service has announced it is stopping its 24-hour checkpoints.

According to a statement issued by the service Tuesday evening, the around-the-clock border checkpoints were set to end as of 8 p.m. on Tuesday in favour of rotating checkpoints across the city throughout the day until Ontario’s temporary regulations end.

“Since the onset of the border operations, the OPS has been working closely with Ottawa Public Health (OPH) along with local stakeholders and interprovincial stakeholders (the City of Ottawa, the City of Gatineau, the Ontario Provincial Police etc.) to assess any local public health, traffic and safety impacts. The assessment resulted in today’s operational changes,” the statement said.

“The operational changes announced today are designed to better ensure the health and safety of all, to minimize delays and/or hazards for travellers and to ensure essential workers can get to their places of employment on time.”

The statement also said the police service, while working to comply with the provincial order, was focused on education and enforcement actions that “support improved public health outcomes and respect the concerns of our most marginalized and racialized communities”

Officers said they will be conducting daily assessments on border crossings and that there could be further changes.

In a statement to Global News, a spokesperson for Solicitor General Sylvia Jones said that the border closures are ultimately subject to the discretion of local police enforcing the regulations.

“Local police services are best positioned to determine the operational deployments necessary to ensure the continued safety of their communities,” the spokesperson said, noting that the order’s regulations still apply to individuals entering the province.

The temporary order restricts Quebec residents from entering Ontario. If prompted, individuals must stop when directed by an enforcement officials and provide their reason for entering the province.

The main exemptions to the restrictions include if the person’s main home is in the province, if they work in Ontario, if they’re transporting goods, if they’re exercising Indigenous or treaty rights, if they need health care or if there’s a basis on compassionate grounds.

COVID-19 vaccines in Ottawa: Nearly half of all residents in their 60s have at least one dose

OTTAWA — Ottawa Public Health’s latest COVID-19 vaccination update shows that nearly half of all residents 60 to 69 years old have had at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, a figure that has all but doubled in the past week.

OPH’s COVID-19 vaccination dashboard shows 58,000 residents 60 to 69 have had at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, accounting for 49.3 per cent of that age group’s population in Ottawa. Last Wednesday, OPH reported 30,000 residents 60 to 69 had had at least one dose, which was 25.4 per cent.

As age demographics get younger, the population grows larger and the coverage by percentage may appear to grow more slowly, even if clinics are vaccinating greater numbers of people. For example, the latest figures show that 83 per cent of people aged 70 to 79 have had at least one dose. By raw population that’s 60,000 people, only slightly higher than half of all people in their 60s.

Vaccinations are open through the Ontario portal to anyone 60 and older and, this week, the AstraZeneca vaccine was approved for administration at pharmacies and primary care clinics to anyone in Ontario 40 and older.

OPH reported a new shipment this week of 25,740 doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine. To date, Ottawa has received 305,130 doses of COVID-19 vaccines from the provincial government.

The number of eligible residents (i.e. 16 and older) with at least one dose of a vaccine is now up to 28 per cent.

Tuesday was Ottawa’s second-busiest day for vaccinations overall, with the OPH reporting 9,729 shots administered. Last Friday saw 9,887 shots administered in a single day.
