Was Blessed Anna Katarina Emmerich Jewish?

One of the greatest of the Catholic mystics was Blessed Anna Katarina Emmerich. She was born in Westphalia in Germany in 1774 and was baptised in St.Jakobi Church. Her parents were Bernard Emmerich b.1730 and his wife Anne Hiller. Her paternal grandparents were Bernard Emmerich and Margreta Rabers (married 1727). Anna Emmerich's grandfather Bernard was the grandson of Nathan Emmerich of Westphalia of a Jewish family. Nathan became a Catholic and took the name Bernardus and his wife Chana Korff (an aunt of Rabbi Isaac of Drohobich)became Anna Korff. They married in Gescher Westphalia in 1697. Rabbi Isaac became a follower of the Baal Shem Tov and his Korff descendants among others became Chasidic Rebbes. 

The women in these families were very spiritually gifted and Anna Emmerich though of the Catholic branch of the family shared in this spiritual heritage. Anna Emmerich's mother was also from the Jewish Hiller family descended from David Hildesheim of Frankfurt (b.1620). Her paternal grandmother also came from a Jewish family called Rabers (a variant of Rabi). We see that Anna Emmerich's family were Catholics of Jewish ancestry. One branch of the Jewish Emmerich family took the name Gompertz and they went to Amsterdam and then to London. They intermarried with the Montefiore family.

It would seem that Anna Katarina Emmerich's ancestors were part of that movement of Jews who converted quietly with Nathan of Gaza to Catholicism after their disappointment with Shabbatai Tzvi (Shabtai Zvi). They assimilated into the general Catholic population of Europe.

Water on Mars: The NASA Anouncement

I watched with interest the other night when NASA made their official announcement that there was still liquid water on Mars. It was good that they finally admitted what many of us have known for years. Of course they still tried to explain it keeping to their claims of how cold Mars is. Many don't believe that Mars is as cold as they pretend it is and that the sky is actually blue not red.  For years many have also known that Mars was covered with seas in the past but it was only recently that NASA accepted the truth of that. One day they may even admit that man has already been to Mars and left behind ruins of an ancient civilisation.

Evolutionary scientists now admit that Mars had a world-wide flood even though they refuse to admit one for earth. They also place the Mars Deluge millions of years ago rather than just over 4,000 years ago at the same time as Earth's Flood. I have written about my ideas about Mars at different times on this blog. I actually began my investigation into Water on Mars when I was in Jerusalem in 2007. The idea that Mars once had oceans and that Man had been there in the past and that liquid water still existed on Mars came to me in prayer.  I also understood that Man had caused the destruction on Mars and Earth at the time of the Great Flood and that much of the Mars ocean water landed on earth. I thought it sounded a bit far fetched so I decided to research it and was surprised that there were other researchers making such claims. In fact one scientist Dr Leonard Martin claimed there was liquid water on Mars after examining the Viking images in 1980.

We have seen how wrong the scientists were about Pluto in recent days. The history of our solar system is very different to what we have been lead to believe by the evolutionary obsessed academia.

McDonells of Keppoch: Reconstructed Tree

 Click on the tree for a clearer and bigger view

This tree is a reconstruction of the MacDonald / McDonell family tree focusing on the Keppoch branch of the family. Many genealogical trees trace the Lords of Keppoch from Alexander of Lochaber a brother of Donald II Lord of the Isles (b. 1363 r.1387-1423) rather than his son Alexander IV Lord of the Isles ( b.1402 r. 1440-1449) and Earl of Ross (1423-1449). The 2nd Lord of Keppoch was Angus Mac Alexander McDonell and his father Alexander was listed as the first Lord of Keppoch in the genealogies. He was mistakenly identified with Alexander (brother of Donald II) rather than Alexander (the son of Donald II). Alexander and his uncle Alexander have been confused and they both were Lord of the Isles during the same period. Donald's brother Alexander III succeeded him as Lord of the Isles (r.1423-1440) and Alexander IV became the Earl of Ross [by right of his mother Lady Mariota of Ross (b. 1382)] and then in 1440 on the death of his uncle Alexander III, he became the Lord of the Isles as well.

The male line of Hugh McDonald of Sleat is R1a ydna whereas the male line of Donald II of the Isles is R1b M222+. Alexander IV Lord of the Isles was the first husband of Hugh of Sleat's mother Elizabeth (nee Seton) the widowed Lady of the Isles (b.1416 d.1479) who married his father Alexander 4th Lord of Glengarry of Clan Ruari (d.1460) soon after her first husband's death. Hugh of Sleat was born in 1452 and died around 1498. Hugh's maternal half brothers were John III 12th Lord of the Isles (b.1434 r1449-1480) and Angus McDonell 2nd Lord of Keppoch. He also had full brother John Ranaldson MacDonald (b.1450 d.1501) 5th Lord of Glengarry of the Ruari Clan. 

Many of the histories of this family were not written until the 17th century a couple of hundred years after many of the events so certain information was inaccurate or partially correct.  The history and genealogies of these families are in need of reconstruction in certain aspects. Using the genealogies, historical research, legends and dna evidence can aid in this reconstruction.

R1b M222+ Tree and Scotland

The latest thinking among many of those studying the R1b M222+ ydna is pointing to a strong connection of much of this group with Scotland. Iain Kennedy's Tree is further confirmation of this Scottish origin. Allan Milliken's research also points in the direction as does the Sons of Aodh family project. How then does this fit with the idea that M222 is connected to High King Niall of the Nine Hostages?

  Sir Iain Moncrieffe a leading genealogist and heraldist in the days before ydna research demonstrated the the Scottish Royal House of Dunkeld-Atholl was descended from the O'Niall Kings of the Mide (Meath) in Ireland. My own genealogy research which I have been doing for over 30 years confirms this Mide origin of the Dunkeld-Atholl Kings of Scotland. Thus accepting that the House of Dunkeld -Atholl in Scotland is R1b M222+ explains this prevalence of M222 in Scotland.

If we place the father of King Duncan I of Scots- Crinan the Abbot of Dunkeld- at the head of Iain Kennedy's tree chart it becomes very clear that direct male line Kennedy family are descendants of King Duncan's brother Maldred the Lord or King of Cumbria. Crinan and his son King Duncan I of Scots lived in the 11th century.

It then becomes clear comparing genealogies of the Dunkeld-Athol dynasty and the ydna members of M222+ projects that three of the sons of King Duncan (S7073/ FGC462) are the ancestors of the subclades of  S568+ (Mael Maire the Mormaer of Atholl), S658+ ( King Malcolm III and FCG4077 (King Donald III). This then means that King Malcom III's son King David I of Scots is the ancestor of the subclade of  DF104 (s661).

When one studies the Scottish noble genealogies the mysterious figure of Isaac and his son Gillanders or Gilleion appear in the 13th century. However Gilleion may be another name for Isaac who is also known as John or Iain. His father is Gillanders (aka Prince Alexander) and his son is Gillanders as well (Alexander Lord of the Isles). He is also called the son of Raa, Rath or Rae a diminuitive of Rebecca, Rae-bethag, Rifka or Rivka. Rae can also mean "little deer" in Gaelic and the deer (hind) is the feminine personification of Israel (Kneset Yisrael). Isaac is thus the one who genetically links the Dunkeld-Atholl dynasty to the clans of Mackenzie, Maclean, Macrae, Gillanders and others and the Alexander and MacDonalds of R1b. The M222+ DF105 subclade S588 are descended from Donald, Lord of the Isles (r.1387-1423).

Isaac was also known as Macrath Molegan (Amuligane) meaning "the Little Jewish King who is the son of Rebecca". Molegan (ha Melekh katan) deriving from the Hebrew "Melekh" (king) and "katan" (little) and possibly alluding to the Gaelic for little King "Regan". In Gaelic there is no letter "k" so a "g" is used. It is also interesting to note that both the Macrae and MacDonald clans recognise MacRaith as a clan sept. Isaac (aka John Alexander) married Lady Margaret Bruce (b.1283) a daughter of his mother's close friend and ally Robert Bruce, the 6th Lord of Annandale around 1298.

This Jewish connection to Scotland has been hidden but is easily reconstructed by a study of the numerous genealogies in which the Jews - Isaac and Rebecca - play an important part. Sir Walter Scott's Isaac and Rebecca in Ivanhoe draw on the legends of them told by his mother. The females of Rebecca's family saw themselves as like Queen Esther of Persia in remaining as hidden Jewesses in the royal and noble families.

Where was Mt Sinai? Jabal Nabi Shuayb?

 Jabal Nabi Shuayb with snow on it

There have been a number of locations for Mt Sinai or Horeb. The location of Mt Sinai in the modern Sinai peninsula has been questioned by many who believe it was in Arabia. Josephus states that it was the highest mountain in Arabia.  St Paul talks about a Mt Sinai in Arabia. As the Israelites wandered around the Wilderness for 40 years it is more likely that they wandered around Arabia which was the location of Midian. Arabia included Yemen and Oman. 

The view from Jabal Sawda or Jabal Al-Soudah which is often covered with black clouds

The highest mountain in modern day Saudi Arabia is Jabal Sawda (Jabal Al-Soudah) in the south. Some claim that Mt Sinai was the highest mountain in northern Arabia Jabal Al Lawz. However the highest mountain in ancient Arabia was Jabal Nabi Shuayb in Yemen and another possibility is Jabal Tiyal which is nearby. 

It is possible that the Israelites crossed the Red Sea at the Straits of Tiran and then turned south towards Jabal Sawda ( and Jabal Nabi Shuayb and Jabal Tiyal) rather than north towards Jabal al-Lawz. Muslim tradition places the Midianites in the region of Jabal Nabi Shuayb. The tradition states that these Midianites were east of Mt Sinai to whom the prophet Shuayb was sent. Thus the mountain today called Jabal Nabi Shuayb may have been the original Mt Sinai. 

Was Jabal Sawda the mountain of Rephidim on which Moses stood when the Amalekites attacked the Israelites? Velikovsky identified the Land of the Amalekites with the Hejaz area (Mecca) of Arabia which is north of Jabal Sawda which was in the border area of Amalek and Midian territories. At the time of the Destruction of the Exodus the Amu or Amalekites fled from Aram-Tehama (Mauritia) and the lands of the Indian Ocean to their colonies in Saudi Arabia to the Hejaz area and they eventually entered Egypt as the Amu or Hyksos. 

Arabia had once been a fertile land which was destroyed during the time of the Exodus especially in the east- the western side was less damaged where the Amalekites settled and clashed with the Israelites. They had originated in ancient Australia.

Dolerite Tombs of Noah and Shem in Tasmania? Pangaea and Gondwana

Adamson's Peak, from Dover Tasmania

In some of my past posts I mentioned that I believed that Tasmania was the location of the ancient Tower and City of Babel and a centre of the ancient world and that Ararat was at Mt Cook in New Zealand. This was before the breakup and formation of the continents over 4,000 years ago. Part of the great Sin or Sinar (Shinar/ Sinim) plain was to become the plateau that covers most of Australia (known as the Western Plateau or Australian Shield) and the other eastern part went under the water in the area we today call the Tasman Sea and Southern Ocean surrounding Tasmania. 

There were huge man-made causeways with huge man-made water canals leading to Babel (Lebab) across the ancient plain of Sinar leading to Mt Lubar and Mt Lebab. Lebab means Heart and Babel is the reversal of the word. The books of Enoch and Jubilees refer to Mt Lubar as the mountain that the Ark landed on, so Lebab and Lubar may be two different mountains that became confused in later accounts. If not then the three cities of Sadek the White City (in Gondwanian Tasmania or Australia), Nahal the Black City (in Gondwanian South America/ South Africa) and Adan the Red City (in Gondwanian Antarctica) may have been to the east (Shemites), south (Hamites) and west (Japhethites) of Mt Cook (Aoraki) rather than Tasmania (Lebab/ Babel/ Leban). However we cannot be sure of the geography of this time as the continents had not broken apart yet. The story of Noah's Ark being in New Zealand is confirmed in the Maori legends of Aoraki's Canoe.

One Evolutionary based map of the socalled super continent of Godwanaland

The Book of Jubilees refers to the making of the stone-like bricks for the Tower and City: "...For they departed from the land of Ararat eastward to Shinar; for in his days they built the city and the tower, saying, 'Go to, let us ascend thereby into heaven.' And they began to build, and in the fourth week they made brick with fire, and the bricks served them for stone, and the clay with which they cemented them together was asphalt which comes out of the sea, and out of the fountains of water in the land of Shinar...". This is the so-called dolerite rock that evolutionary science associates with a kind of volcanic rock but is in fact man-made in a process and with a technology that is now unknown. The dolerite rock that covers much of Tasmania is the remnants of the great City and Tower of Lebab. At this time Tasmania (site of Sadek and Lebab), Zealandia (site of Mt Lubar) and Victoria Land in Antarctica (site of Adan) were close together and had great cities and Towers made of Dolerite bricks. Nahal was to the south west of Mt Lubar when parts of Godwanian southern Brazil and Namibia were close together and to the Godwanian southern tip of Zealandia (now under the Sea south of Maquarie Island). The process for producing these dolerite bricks may have been part of what led to the splitting of the continents. 

One idea of the original continent of Pangaea

Many translations say that one travelled eastward from Ararat to Shinar whereas it could possibly also read that the Land of Ararat was to the east of the great plain of Shinar (Sinim). If Shinar or Sinar was in Iraq then these directions make no sense as the Ararat in Turkey/Armenia is directly north of Iraq. The Armenian Land of Urartu at some stage of history and legend became associated with Ararat. However if Pangaea or Gondwana were the shape of the earth in the time when Noah landed on Mt Cook then one indeed would go eastward to the great plain of Shinar as New Zealand (Zealandia) was at this time to the West of Australia and Tasmania rather than the east as it was after the breaking up of the continents. Was Pangaea the pre-flood land and Gondwanda the post-deluge shape? Or is there a better scenario? It would seem that before the destruction at the time of Babel that mankind (Japhethites) had also settled in the areas that were to become North America and the British Isles (the western coastlands of Laurasia) where Dolerite is also found today.

 Tasman Sea Floor off New Zealand
 I also think that the original Yeshivah or Academy of Noah and Shem may have been in a valley south of Hobart and that the Tomb of Noah (or Shem) is the pyramid shaped mountain of Adamson's Peak in Tasmania and that the smaller pyramid shaped mounds near Adamson's peak are the tombs of his son Shem and possibly that of Noah or Shem's wife known as the Cow and the Calf. It is also possible that the Adamson's Peak area are the tombs of Shem and his family and that Noah and his wife are buried near the original Mt Lubar or Ararat in New Zealand.

Abraham was to spend some time as a child and later as an adult at this Academy of Noah and Shem (see the Book of Jasher) in Tasmania. A second Academy of Shem and Eber was established in Canaan at Shalem run by Melchizedek who had taught Abraham in the Academy of Noah and Shem previously. Isaac may have also gone to the south-eastern Academy of Noah and Shem after the events of the Akedah (Binding) for three years. 

At this stage of research I would posit that something similar to the modern scientists' Pangaea was the one landmass before the Flood and that Gondawana and Laurasia of the modern scientists was similar to the geography of the earth after the Deluge. However the southern parts of South America and South Africa may have been further south and east of the map used above. The present shape of the world's geography dates from 1530 AD and 1606 AD when numerous lands sunk under the Indian and Pacific Oceans, however the present locations of the continents date from the time after the Destruction of Babel just over 4,000 years ago. A true map or model of Pangaea and Gondwana would need to take into account the ancient lands that have now sunken under the Sea and the ancient coastlines that are now also under water and many other factors. Unlike the theories of evolutionary scientists I hold that the splitting of the continents was a rapid process causing by man-made cataclysmic events not one that took millions of years through uniformitarian and evolutionary processes. Even some evolutionary scientists believe that the splitting apart of the continents was not gradual but occurred in one huge cataclysmic event such as Paul Renne (a Professor at Berkeley University) and his researchers (in "Science" magazine April 23 1999).

Pangaea (and Gondwana) was most likely originally a circular landmass with a circular large sea or Lake in its interior. It looked  like a wheel or a dinner plate. After the Flood, Gondwana was a more fragmented version of the circular Pangaea from before the Flood. At the time of the cataclysmic events of Babel, Antarctica was pulled south between Kergeulen and Zealandia, pushing Kergeulen to the West and Zealandia to the East. As Kergeulen moved west so South America, Mauritia and Africa moved west. As Zealandia moved East so the southern part of Australia pulled Australia around into its present position. These movements created the Atlantic and Indian Oceans. 

Before the Flood the Interior Sea was a huge mountain on which the Garden of Eden was located surrounded by the fifth or head River of Eden from which the four major Rivers flowed into the rest of Eden (the rest of the Land).  

The Nile, Congo, Niger, Amazon and  Rio de la Plata rivers were once part of the same primordial River that flowed to the south-west through Godwanian Africa and South America coming out to the Ocean near the great Hamite city of Nahal (near Gondwanian Uruguay, Namibia and South Africa)). This was the Black (Nahal) city which was made mostly of black dolerite. This primordial River was called the Gihon. 

The Pishon River that flowed to the south-east has remnants in the modern day Ganges River (the original Indus River) in India, the Dalay River (the original Ganges River under the Timor Sea today) and the Swan, Fitzroy and Murray Rivers in Australia. The Chidekel flowed to the north-east and the Euphrates and Yangtze are remnants of this river. The Parat flowed to the north-west and its remnants are the Danube, the Rhine and the Thames.

When the asteroid at the time of the flood struck the earth in the area which is the Pacific Ocean today, the circular mountain of Eden was pushed forth and collided with the Moon of that time which became the planet Mercury in a new location while the Garden of Eden mountain became the present moon. The circular hole left with the removal of the mountain became the Interior Sea after the flood and after the Tower of Babel (and another possible asteroid impact in Mexico) parts of the Mediterranean Sea, the Black Sea, the Caspian Sea and Aral Sea are remnants of this ancient Interior Sea which had been pulled to the north-east during the cataclysmic events. Alternatively the round or circular Sea and its bed in the centre of the landmass of Pangaea may have been pulled north west causing the separation of Atlantis, North America, Greenland from Iberia and Europe and today is the circular sea we call the Arctic Sea or Ocean. Due to its move it created the space for the northern part of the Atlantic Ocean. The space left behind (the Mediterranean Sea area) and the new position of this circular Sea (Arctic Ocean)  caused Europe to move further south and Africa further north into the vacated space drawing Europe closer to Africa. 

The Pacific lost island continent which Marco Polo calls Cipangu (which others confuse with Japan) is called Pan or Mu by some. It was originally in Pangaea in the place where some place the socalled Tethys Sea. During the cataclysmic events Cipangu or Pan moved to the east into Oceanus leaving what scientists call the Tethys Sea to form. Then India (which was then connected to Australia and Antarctica) was drawn across this sea and collided with Asia forming rapidly the Himalaya mountains.The Cipangu of the time of Marco Polo's time was a smaller large island remnant (1,500 off the Chinese coast) of this continent which totally disappeared under the sea some time after 1300 AD (probably in 1320 AD), except for some small islands.

The Events of the Flood caused cracks in the "dinner plate" and the events of Babel caused the "dinner plate" to be broken and pulled apart forming the continents. It must always be remembered that the Ocean of earth before the Flood was a lot smaller and after the Flood the earth contained much more water probably from the Ocean of Mars. Scientists now believe that at least 20 percent of Mars was once covered with water.

The rivers and other features on this diagram are not accurate and just very roughly placed.

(This paper places Australia and Antarctica to the West of South America rather than to the east of Africa. This is another possible scenario but not the only one. )
Added October 7 2015: I just found an interesting paper that also believes that Pangaea was originally circular though they place New Zealand to the north east of Australia rather than the south west as does my model and other models of Pangaea.

Haplogroups of the Tribes of Israel: What Tribe do You belong to?

The following haplogroups of the Tribes of Israel do not mean that they are the only haplogroups for that tribe but that the haplogroups mentioned do belong to that Tribe in the direct male line. The Tribes of Israel belong to the overarching haplogroup called NOP. All those with haplogroups descended from NOP are male lineal ydna descendants of Jacob the Patriarch of Israel. Jacob's male descendants by the full-sisters Rachel and Leah belong to R and Q. The Israelite clans descended from Jacob's six sons by Leah are all found mainly under the R1b haplotype (descended from P), the clans of the two sons of Joseph (a son of Jacob's wife Rachel) Ephraim and Manasseh belong to R1a, those of Q belong to the clans of the tribe of Benjamin. NO is the group belonging to Jacob's four sons Dan, Naphtali, Gad and Asher by his two concubines who according to tradition were half sisters of Rachel and Leah by their father Laban's Asiatic concubine. 

The so-called R1b Ht-15 belongs the Israelites from the Lost Tribes of the Assyrian Exile (called in Jewish tradition the exile of Zarephath). The so-called R1b ht-35 are the descendants of the Judeans of the Babylonian Exile (called in Jewish tradition as the exile of Sephard) mainly belonging to the Tribes of Judah, Levi and some of Benjamin. Q Benjaminites are mainly those Benjaminites descended from the Benjaminite Kingdom in Siberia. (see Hebrew y-dna: A New Understanding)

1. Reuben: R1b U152 and may also be found among branches of R1b P312.

2. Simeon: R1b DF27 and may also be found among branches of R1b P312.

3. Levi: Levite clans are found among both R1b Ht-15 and R1b Ht-35 as well as R1b-V88. 

4. Judah: Clans of Judah are to be found among R1b Ht-15 and R1b Ht-35 including R1b L21 (Davidic House of Nathan).

5. Dan: Clans of Dan are to be found among N, N* and P*.

6. Naphtali: the clans of Naphtali are of N ydna.

7. Gad: the clans of Gad belong to O1 and O3.

8. Asher: the clans of Asher belong to O2 ydna.

9. Issachar: R1b DF19 and may also be found among branches of R1b P312.

10. Zebulon: R1b U106 and may also be found among branches of R1b P312.

11. Ephraim: R1a Z283 and other branches of R1 and R1a .

12. Benjamin: the clans of Benjamin are Q ydna and also found among R1b.

13. Manasseh: the clans of Manasseh are R1a Z93 and among other branches of R1 and R1a.
