Since people are not inclined to do math, it is easy to keep secrets written in math such as we see in the Noah’s Ark Story. Do devoted Christians really want to know someone has been passing secrets over their heads all along and smiling while they do it?
Do they really want to know they have been outwitted and used by a right smart, ancient bunch of gents who wanted them to pass along an important message to a future generation?
Are the ancient gents comfortable in their tombs knowing the Christians will keep on naively passing it for another thousand years because they never were interested in doing their math homework?
On that we can count!
So for those who would rather be in the know….
Where else do we see this 60, 60 + 1 expression in the Noah’s ark story?
We watch the clock at midnight on New Year’s eve. One tick of the clock and it is a new year.
We see a repeat of this number idea, the end of one period and the beginning of the next in Noah’s age at the time of the flood, “In the 600th year of Noah’s Life, in the 2nd month, the 17th day of the month, ….” the flood begins. It ends “the 601st, in the 1st month, the 1st day of the month….” and the earth is dried by “the 601st year, 2nd month, 27th day of the month…”
Thus the ordeal lasted 1 year and 10 days. The emphasis on 1 cannot be more clear. New Year’s Day. The first tick of the clock into the next year, the next period. 600 and then 600 plus one second makes the 601st year. The second month, the 17, and the 27 are much more lengthy topics and of far greater importance. There is a specific reason these numbers were used that shows in the math. For those who are not scared by a string of plus signs there are some very high level secrets to be learned that are as pertinent today as the day they were written.
I discuss this at length in my book, “The Deep Mystery.” Yes, my book is full of numbers but it is -not my fault- these people talked, wrote and thought in numbers.
Stick with the numbers for a while and then there are many pictures. Those are only worth a 1000 words!
