Preserving Knowledge Through Ignorance

How to get the ignorant to carry your best kept secrets through mythology

There is evidence the Old Testament is scientific knowledge preserved in mythology.

None of the stories are true, but inside the traditions disguise the secrets of creation, matter, and the elements. The numbers discovered through Gematria illustrate this at a compelling level.

There is a strong possibility that key biblical stories allude to a natural truth. Not that the stories actually happened, but the mythology is coded with hidden scientific knowledge from a very ancient past. Religion in their current ignorance now believes the stories—but the stories were never really meant to be believed, but represent the chemistry of the periodic table and creation.

Enter Gematria—and the rediscovery of what’s again been discovered, or the construction of stories that coincide with numerical values. In this case, the periodic table of elements.

In the beginning God hydrogen created the heavens and the earth…

The biblical text was not a religious book, but came from a collection of scientific structures recited in mythology to be remembered. This process is not unusual at all in many ancient cultures—the more outrageous the story the easier it is to commit that imagery to memory. Introducing monotheism is the audacious attention getter—the rest falls right in line with the elements.

In the spirit of brevity, the Hebrew alphabet and the Torah (first five books of the Old Testament) coincides with the elements of the periodic table. And that all 21 letters of the alphabet are derivatives of the Aleph, which numerically is 1, hydrogen—or nature, or Elohim, the source of all other elements. The rest represents the other elements and coincide with the numerical value and how they are bonded and what mass, weight, and orbitals they contain.

In the beginning god created the heavens and the earth. The astonishing part at the time is the transition to a monotheistic deity —a pretty memorable claim, but in breaking down the letters and the sequence of words in their order we find all the elements—92 distinct roots of the story of creation are divided such that the first 86 appear in the verses relating the first six periods of creation (Genesis 1:1 through 1:31), while the last 6 (the inert or noble elements) are found in the verses relating the Sabbath.

This article HERE explains in greater detail the elements and how they are coded in the Torah. Looking back at the structures that were built and left behind, we can only assume what other knowledge the ancient world possessed. But I have a feeling they were much more advanced than we can really imagine—but like every other culture with an oral mythology, the stories themselves were ridiculous. But the meaning encoded in the myth was the secret knowledge of existence.

Now out of context and having no idea what that was, the believer believes the stories themselves to be true—but as we can tell from even the Exodus itself, it was a fable of zero evidence—but a story to preserve important knowledge.

      1. Nothing to do with numerology. If you are familiar with any mythology it is often crazy sounding stories that have reminders of pertinent knowledge only to those who tell them.
        Is this any more of a stretch than the song-lines used in aboriginal navigation, or Polynesian navigation?
        What if you wanted to pass down important information without giving it away to your enemies? Why did we use secret codes to transmit messages during war time?
        I really don’t think the Torah is a religious text to be believed, but that is what it has come to.

        1. « Gematria is a numerological system by which Hebrew letters correspond to numbers. This system, [was ] developed by practitioners of Kabbalah » that’s the official definition — Gematria is numerology…. But I thought or frank peter thought your piece was satire. I dunno.

          1. It’s a numerical system but it actually coincides with specific words in specific orders—words that have multiple meanings. Frank thought it may be satire. I just think it is interesting that the oral traditions carry a match up, using a creation myth that is untrue.
            It almost makes sense, that god is hydrogen. The fusion in the middle of stars giving birth to all the other elements.
            The other translation of Elohim is nature. This is a word that has given Judaism much conjecture and little consensus.
            I have no easy answers but I’m afraid that pure knee-jerk atheism sometimes misses some of the possibilities.
            As advanced as these “primitive” societies seem to have been, it’s not a stretch at all that they had a good grasp of the elements. A huge advantage over those that didn’t. Just look at the buildings they built.


  1. Fascinating take Jim. I’m convinced of the cross and life of Christ yet I’ve a hunch a lot of Torah stories are mystical and/or symbolic. For an example, the tree-of-life symbolism. Again, good post, thanks.

      1. Well if, the New Testament were actually an extension of the Torah, the “floating up” part would represent element #2, helium.
        Father, son, Holy Spirit, all represented by their respective elements hydrogen, helium, and the noble gases.


  4. Yes, the floating part is questionable. However, his death and resurrection are everything to me. Because on the cross God took responsibility for me (and you) ditching him.


    1. Everything to you?
      It is a sick mind that worships a 1st century human sacrifice.
      And could your god, Yahweh ditch himself?

      Furthermore, aren’t you adult enough to take responsibility for yourself?
      Why do you still regard yourself as an stupid child?

      1. The bible explains that responsibility isn’t ours to take, and he reclaimed it via Jesus Christ. Consequently, “Return to me.. become as little children.”

            3. “The study of theology, as it stands in Christian churches, is the study of nothing; it is founded on nothing; it rests on no principles; it proceeds by no authorities; it has no data; it can demonstrate nothing; and it admits of no conclusion. Not anything can be studied as a science, without our being in possession of the principles upon which it is founded; and as this is the case with Christian theology, it is therefore the study of nothing”—Thomas Paine

    1. I see what you’re saying, but this isn’t numerology. It is a system assigning a numerical value to the elements that coincides with a description in the story. You can switch it up—in the beginning hydrogen created the heavens and the earth.
      I do agree that we are pattern seekers, yet this is definitely a pattern in the Torah. Are they finding a pattern where there is none?
      My claim is the Torah is a science book coded inside mythology. It makes sense to me.

      1. That is the viewpoint of a lot of scholars about mythology in general. It describes actual science or history. Just that people like to tell a good story so they mix it up.

        In one Sumerian myth, Ninurta battles Azag the Demon. They interpret it to be about the spring storms in Mesopotamia along with the red mud that comes from the mountains. The myth describes it as blood and semen.

        Of course, as a Polytheist, I have a vastly different point of view of mythology but that is for another day.

        Assuming they had the knowledge, the science, the grasp of the universe we have today, is ludicrous IMO.

        It’s ad hoc rationalizations all the way down. The bigger the hammer the easier it is to do

        1. Do you think whoever built the pyramids and left behind such an incredible mark on history, didn’t understand the natural world or the elements?
          I think it’s too easy to judge them on their post-apocalyptic form. Even the Native American is judged on this form, yet their ancestors conquered the elements and built Meso America with advanced knowledge we no longer possess.
          I can easily imagine a handful of survivors carrying that information in their songs and stories. The stories themselves are not true, but contain the pieces that we have gradually put back together over the last 300 years.


          1. Natural world? Yes.

            Earth/water/fire/air/salt/copper, absolutely. An understanding of the periodic table? No freaking way.

            Astronomy? Sure. They understood seasons rolling with the stars. Soltices? Yes.

            Ability to use manpower and ingenuity to build pyramids? Across the world we see that. Just because we don’t know exactly how they did it, only highlights our own ignorance. That they were able to build pyramids is certanly evident. I don’t feel stupid for not knowing how. I am in awe they could do it.

            The Native Americans here had the atl atl. A device that can sling a spear dart with such force it could penetrate Spanish armor. The Chickasaw came close to wipinig out DeSoto’s party not far from here. They were shocked their armor was defenseless against the atl atl.

            I have heard second hand tales of guys with atl atl replicas able to penetrate poles the size of light poles. Incredible stone age tech.

            People from long ago weren’t stupid, far from it. Well, I’m sure they had their dingbat Republicans too. But they did not have the advanced understanding of the world, or the tech we have today. If they did, I’ve seen no evidence for it.

            If they had, there would be smart watches, periodic tables, and disentegration ray guns in the tombs of Egypt. 😉

            1. I think the pyramid is likely our extended phenotype. We may not even know how to do it but we’ll do it if we don’t blow ourselves ip first. It is a thousands of year process—the Native American was unknowingly working on before their burial mounds were interrupted by European settlers. But it is likely the culmination of a civil society that cracks the code. After that they disappear. What is there to do after one has figured out the game? That is universal. They all had it then poof! Gone.


  6. I know you meant the piece to be a satire. However, for Polytheists like myself, it does come close to the view of mythology that we have. Mythology is part and parcel of how the Cosmos is and came to be. But I haven’t encountered anyone who actually took the myth to be literal and made it into a device for divination or other things. That is something that Monotheists do especially Protestants, who are heavily reliant on words. Mythology is more of a product of oral cultures and is passed from speaker to listener. It is a different dynamic than writer and reader, since the listener interacts with the speaker as they are telling the myth.

    Anyway, I did enjoy the piece.

  7. Yeah, and children see animals in the shapes of clouds in the sky. I love the fact that people actually claim the Bible and the Koran possessed knowledge that people did not have at the time. They don’t realize that if what they claim was true, then their deity skipped over crop rotation, the germ theory of disease, inoculations, human hygiene, and myriad other things that would have improve the lives of countless millions of people were that information were shared. If those Hebrews placed more emphasis on teeth hygiene than upon genital mutilation. . . , think about it. “You will know my people from their sparkly white teeth!”


      1. Someone can bake bread without having an exact knowledge of the all the chemical reactions involved or very minimal knowledge and still produce a tasty loaf; likewise, someone can understand the chemical reactions involved in making bread at a deep level and still make a pretty crappy tasting final product. Two different sets of skills.

        I wouldn’t go as far as Steve that the Israelites had no sense of hygiene. Deuteronomy 24:12 – 14 clearly talks about pooping outside the camp. But it probably would’ve been very basic and doesn’t mean had a deep level of knowledge or a developed germ theory.

        1. I don’t infer the Israelites knew what knowledge they carried in their mythology, and certainly todays Jews or Christian’s likely do not. Let’s just take the exodus as an example. A great story, but no evidence to support it. And as massive as it purports to be, there should be some evidence.
          But in the story is woven a knowledge of the chemistry known when the myth originated—now lost.
          I’m actually glad you stopped by. I am trying to defend this argument for the sake of interesting discussion, but I don’t really know enough about rabbinical Judaism or Kabbalism to stake a claim.


          1. I highly doubt the Ancient Israelites had a particularly sophisticated knowledge or awareness of the Periodic Table no matter what certain Kabbalists want to suggest. I agree with Shelldigger that this is post hoc reasoning.

            Yet they could clearly smelt bronze, create clay pottery, wrote some interesting literature that can hold up with some of the best written in the ancient world, has literate scribes, build large structures in stone, etc.

            Many ancient cultures did and produced many major cultural achievements and had relative sophistication for their time period without being as “advanced” as modern societies.


            1. I was wondering more along the lines of the oral Torah becoming the written Torah.
              Native Americans in my neck of the woods tell some fascinating g stories that just seem impossible—and today no one really knows what they were meant to convey, but they did. Like the wampum belts to us looked like bead work but contained treaties and origin stories. I think oral tradition in its context was highly accurate over long periods, especially with the cadence and the beat—you couldn’t get it wrong.
              Interesting topic for me though.


            2. There were likely oral tales and traditions that became incorporated in the Torah/Bible/Old Testament. But when Jews, usually Orthodox, talk about the Oral Torah they are generally referring to the Talmud, which was written down at a later point. This is a whole other book(s), which is sometimes commentary, additional laws and legal reasoning, additional folktales and mythical stories, etc.

        2. I think you are referring to Deuteronomy 23, but in any case the scripture reads:

          12 Set up a place outside the camp to be used as a toilet area. 13 And make sure that you have a small shovel in your equipment. When you go out to the toilet area, use the shovel to dig a hole. Then, after you relieve yourself, bury the waste in the hole.

          Which sounds like good hygienic advice but the very next verse states:

          14 You must keep your camp clean of filthy and disgusting things. The Lord is always present in your camp, ready to rescue you and give you victory over your enemies. But if he sees something disgusting in your camp, he may turn around and leave.

          So the clear motivation here is “so that you do not gross out your god.” Hiding good advice behind bad reasons is not good educationally.

          1. Besides hygiene, I think verse 14 reminded them that the person of God was present, and to live accordingly, to ‘walk in the light’ of his eyes.


          2. Not mutually exclusive. One theory for the origin of myths within mythological studies is that such stories are often post hoc sanctifications of real practical concerns. In other words, there is real practical reasons a cultural practice or customs arises (poop is filthy, smells bad, and is not safe to have around food and where we sleep) that later on gets codified by a mythological story or reasoning (i. e. God wants us to do this).

            Why is this stuff filthy and disgusting hmmm? Again some basic understanding of hygiene that is being sanctified.

      2. It wasn’t the Hebrews who build the pyramids. It was the Egyptians (and really it seems like every other culture around the globe) did it but at the command of a God-King. They didn’t come up with the idea themselves, “Hey, gang, I have an idea! Let’s put on a show, uh, put up a pyramid.” Their cultures had some knowledge of medicine and hygiene, learned the hard way, but life was cheap, life was short, and the king’s had a “next man up” policy.


        1. Yea of course. And the other story I learned in school was many of these were built so they would know when to any crops. We’re still in denial that the world was completely populated and advanced in more ways than we will admit—they were primitive, right? I don’t really buy that any more. Even the early settlers noted in North America that the native surpassed the European in every way in their nature and stature.
          Where do we think the Europeans learned to put their livestock out of the house?


      3. My guess it is simpler than we would think. We have seen quarry remnants where stone cutting was done. That no evidence exists to show how it (building the pyramids,) was done, probably lends credence to the notion that it was done with perishable items, logs/rope, things that would not survive to be recognized today. Or survived remnants did remain, lying in plain sight, and overlooked as just a rotten rope/log.

        Take enough rope, enough manpower, enough ingenuity, methinks much can be accomplished. Without invoking aliens or magic powers.


        1. The stones in the kings chamber are 160,000 pounds. 2.3 million stones in one structure alone…with ropes. Logs would be crushed in a matter of meters and they moved them miles. I don’t really see that. That’s a stone every 5 minutes for twenty years—24/7. Really amazing however it was done.


      1. There are many examples of parallel evolution in nature. No reason to think humans wouldn’t come up with similar solutions to similar problems, independent of contact with others.
