King Solomon's Temple

Topic started on 27-2-2011 @ 03:18 PM by Skyfloating
A most fascinating subject for research is King Solomons Temple, for a number of reasons:

* Ancient scripture tells us that the Ark of Covenant (an object that Moses received directly from God) was placed there.
* It is rumored that the Knights Templar or their descendants removed the Ark and are now protecting it.
* In the allegories of Freemasonry the Temple relates to the Illumination of mankind
* According to a more secret tradition, there are vaults beneath the Temple that were built before the great flood by Enoch to save information destroyed in Atlantis.
* King Solomon was the richest person of his times and many of his treasures have yet to be found.
* Where once the center of Judaism stood, today stands the muslim "Dome of the Rock", symbolizing the conflict between the three Abrahamic Religions who are laying claim to the place.
* Excavations and Archaeological Research have been suppressed due to religious sensitivities.
The first Temple was built around 1000 B.C. and, according to Rabbinical sources, stood 410 years. Back then it was reported to be the grandest sight in the world. It is said that the

Ark of the Covenant was first placed in the Tabernacle before it was brought to the Temple. The Tabernacle is the portable or flying "dwelling place of God", a device which accompanied the Jewish people on their journey. It is said that God did not want David to build a Temple for the Ark (which is also described as a vessel) because David had shed blood in wars. It was therefore Davids son, Solomon, who became the King of Israel and built the Temple. The temple was built by Hiram of Tyre and his Master Craftsman Hiram Abiff (who were the founders of Freemasonry, according to masonic legend).

The Ark of the Covenant, which contained the Stone Tablets with Gods Ten Commandments, a jar of "manna" and a miraculous and powerful device called Aarons Rod was placed in a special inner room of the Temple called "The Holy of Holies". The exact measurements and colors of the Temples interior can be found in this basic article on King Solomon's Temple.
After the first temple was destroyed, the Jews built a second Temple on the "Temple Mount" which was later destroyed by the Romans. In the 6th Century muslims built the "Dome of the Rock" on the Temple Mount. Todays Jewish "Wailing Wall" is the last remaining part of the Temple.
在第一所聖殿被毀後,猶太人在“聖殿山“上建造第二所聖殿,那後來被羅馬人摧毀。 6世紀時穆斯林在聖殿山上建立“圓頂石“。今天猶太人的“哭牆“,是聖殿的最後剩餘部分。
Apart from Discussion the purpose of this thread is also research...my added research and the research of whoever wishes to contribute. There are hundreds of political, historical, religious and metaphysical paths that branch off of this subject and there is so much more to discover. Learning more about the Temple and attempts to rebuild the Temple may uncover the origins and secrets of the Abrahamic Religions (Christianity, Judaism, Islam), the secrets of Freemasonry, the persecution of Jews throughout the ages and more.
Surrounding Solomon are several devices that are suggestive of technological gadgets. One of them is...
1. Solomons Magic Carpet
1. 所羅門魔毯
when Solomon sat upon the carpet he was caught up by the wind, and sailed through the air so quickly that he breakfasted at Damascus and supped in Media

According to the Quran Solomon not only created amazing buildings but also had a "Magic Carpet" with which he could "command the wind" and do "a months journey by evening". As a months journey was back then about 1200 kilometres, some researchers estimate that Solomons "carpet" went 77 mph (120 kph).
根據古蘭經,所羅門不僅創造令人驚奇的建築,但亦有一張“魔毯”,有它他能“對風號令”及“在黃昏作一月旅程”。由於一月旅程回至那畤約是 1200公里,一些研究人員估計所羅門的“魔毯”每小時航行七十七英里(120公里)。
and to Solomon (we made) the wind (subservient and obedient): its early morning (stride) was a month's (journey), and its evening (stride) was a month's (journey); and we made a font of molten brass to flow for him; and there were jinn that worked in front of him, by the leave of his lord, and if any of them turned aside from our command, we made him taste of the penalty of the blazing fire.

Surah (Chapter) 34:12

From the sound of this, Solomon could also melt metals and shape them for his buildings. The flying carpet perhaps explains how Solomon could travel to so many places and have so many women (as the Bible says).
I will go into other gadgets that seem suggestive of advanced technology later. For now, some of the questions raised are: Where is all of Solomons Gold? What is it about the Temple Mount that disallows for Archaeological Excavation? How were the Templars involved and where did they hide their goods? What are the different places the Ark is rumoured to be hidden?

several theories about where the Ark is:
1. in Ethiopia.
1. 在埃塞俄比亞。
2. the Knights Templar own it.
2. 聖殿騎士團擁有它。
3. no longer on Earth.
3. 不再在地球上。
4. Babylonians took it.
4. 巴比倫人取去它。
5. entirely lost.
5. 完全失踪。
