The Milky Way Galaxy and our SUN.

Question: How many Suns are located within the Milky Way Galaxy besides our very own beloved Sun?
Answer: The Milky Way is estimated to contain 200 billion, or up to 400 billion, suns (if small-mass stars predominate). As a guide to the relative physical scale of the Milky Way, if it were reduced to 130 km (80 mi) in diameter, the Solar System would be a mere 2 mm (0.08 inches) in width. The Galactic Halo extends outward but is limited in size by the orbits of the two Milky Way satellites, the Large and the Small Magellanic Clouds, whose perigalacticon is at ~180,000 light-years. New discoveries indicate that the disk extends much farther than previously thought.

Question: How old is our Galaxy?

Answer: It is extremely difficult to define the age at which the Milky Way formed, but the age of the oldest stars in the Galaxy is now estimated to be about 13.6 billion years, nearly as old as the Universe itself. This estimate is based on research done in 2004 by astronomers Luca Pasquini, Piercarlo Bonifacio, Sofia Randich, Daniele Galli, and Raffaele G. Gratton. The team used the UV-Visual Echelle Spectrograph of the Very Large Telescope to measure, for the first time, the beryllium content of two stars in the globular cluster NGC 6397. This allowed them to deduce the elapsed time between the rise of the first generation of stars in the entire Galaxy and the first generation of stars in the cluster, at 200 million to 300 million years. By including the estimated age of the stars in the globular cluster (13.4 ± 0.8 billion years), they estimated the age of the oldest stars in the Milky Way at 13.6 ± 0.8billion years.

Question: How old is our Sun?

Answer: The Sun's current main sequence age, determined using computer models of stellar evolution and nucleocosmochronology, is thought to be about 4.57 billion years.

The Sun is about halfway through its main-sequence evolution, during which nuclear fusion reactions in its core fuse hydrogen into helium. Each second, more than 4 million tonnes of matter are converted into energy within the Sun's core, producing neutrinos and solar radiation; at this rate, the Sun will have so far converted around 100 Earth-masses of matter into energy. The Sun will spend a total of approximately 10 billion years as a main-sequence star.

The Sun does not have enough mass to explode as a supernova. Instead, in 4–5billion years, it will enter a red giant phase, its outer layers expanding as the hydrogen fuel in the core is consumed and the core contracts and heats up. Helium fusion will begin when the core temperature reaches around 100 MK, and will produce carbon and oxygen, entering the asymptotic giant branch of a planetary nebula phase in about 7.8 billion years, during which instabilities in interior temperature lead the surface of the sun to shed mass. While it is likely that the expansion of the outer layers of the Sun will reach the current position of Earth's orbit, recent research suggests that mass lost from the Sun earlier in its red giant phase will cause the Earth's orbit to move further out, preventing it from being engulfed. However, Earth's water will be boiled away and most of its atmosphere will escape into space. The increase in solar temperatures over this period is sufficient that by about 500-700 million years into the future, the surface of the Earth will become too hot for the survival of life as we know it.

How Large Is Our Universe?

Question: Nuwaubian Hotep now that we know that our galaxy the Milky Way has from 200 million to 400 million suns within, how large is our universe which is "all substance matter" (also known to the Kammau/Egyptians as Paut)?

Answer: Very little is known about the size of the universe. It may be trillions of light years across, or even infinite in size. A 2003 paper[20] claims to establish a lower bound of 24 gigaparsecs (78 billion light years) on the size of the universe, but there is no reason to believe that this bound is anywhere near tight. The observable (or visible) universe, consisting of all locations that could have affected us since the Big Bang given the finite speed of light, is certainly finite. The comoving distance to the edge of the visible universe is about 46.5 billion light years in all directions from the earth; thus the visible universe may be thought of as a perfect sphere with the Earth at its center and a diameter of about 93 billion light years Note that many sources have reported a wide variety of incorrect figures for the size of the visible universe, ranging from 13.7 to 180 billion light years. See Observable universe for a list of incorrect figures published in the popular press with explanations ofeach.

Question: How many galaxies such as ours are in our universe (all that there is..)

Answer: There are more than one hundred billion (10 to the 11th power) galaxies in the Universe, each containing hundreds of billions of stars, with each star containing about 1057 atoms of hydrogen.Question: How was the universe created?Answer: The generally accepted scientific theory which describes the origin and evolution of the Universe is Big Bang cosmology, which describes the expansion of space from an extremely hot and dense state of unknown characteristics. The Universe underwent a rapid period of cosmic inflation that flattened out nearly all initial irregularities in the energy density; thereafter the universe expanded and became steadily cooler and less dense. Minor variations in the distribution of mass resulted in hierarchical segregation of the features that are found in the current universe; such as clusters and superclusters of galaxies.

According to the Big Bang model, the universe developed from an extremely dense and hot state.
Space itself has been expanding ever since, carrying galaxies (and all other matter) with it.


Hyouryuukishuu (Tales of Castaways)

The Iwase Bunko Library has in its possession a document entitled Hyouryuukishuu ("Tales of Castaways"), which was printed during the late Edo period (1603-1868).
The document recounts the stories of Japanese sailors who find themselves in foreign lands after becoming lost at sea, as well as castaway foreigners washed ashore on the beaches of Japan. To the Japanese people, who at the time had been living in a prolonged period of national isolation, these exotic tales must have seemed very fantastic.
Among these stories is the account of a wrecked ship with a very mysterious appearance.
According to the document, this vessel washed ashore at Harashagahama in Hitachi-no-kuni (present-day Ibaraki prefecture). The body of the ship, described as 3.3 meters tall and 5.4 meters wide, had been built from red sandalwood and iron and was fitted with windows of glass or crystal. The mysterious characters of an unknown alphabet were found inscribed inside the vessel.

Aboard the drifting vessel was a finely dressed young woman with a pale face and red eyebrows and hair. She was estimated to be between 18 and 20 years old. Because she spoke an unfamiliar tongue, those that encountered her were unable to determine from whence she came. In her arms she clutched a plain wooden box that appeared to be of great value to her, as she would allow nobody to approach it.
The document shows a portion of the text found inside the ship.
Other Edo-period documents describe variations of this mysterious encounter. Toen Shousetsu (1825), a book by Kyokutei Bakin (who is most famous for his 106-volume samurai epic Nansou Satomi Hakkenden) tells the story of the same encounter, referring to the strange vessel as the utsuro-fune ("hollow ship"). Another variation of this tale appears in Ume no Chiri (1844), penned by a relatively unknown author named Nagahashi Matajirou. A thorough analysis of these two variations of the story can be found in a translated article by Kazuo Tanaka titled "Did a Close Encounter of the Third Kind Occur on a Japanese Beach in 1803?"
Contemporary fans of the paranormal know this ship as the Edo-period UFO.

Did the Messiah - Yashua call the name of Allah in the New Testament?

The purpose of this missive is to teach that Yeshua (the contraction of Yehowshuwa (Joshua) who the Romans called Iesous - which is translated into English as "Jesus") during his crucifixion in the Greek Scripture - New Testament fable cried out the deity "Alaha" the true God of the Hebrew in Syriac (Aramaic) which is etymologically the same and the root of "Elahh" in Hebrew and "Allah" in Arabic.
We analyze these two verses from the Greek Scriptures (New Testament)...
Mar 15:34 "And at the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani? which is, being interpreted, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?"

Mat 27:46 "And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?"

We 1st have to realize is that
1. There are NO original versions of the four Gospels and that as these verses prove Yeshua spoke Aramaic NOT Greek.
2. The original works were most likely copied and destroyed by the Niciene council who were historically notorious for destroying works that went against their brand of Greeco/Roman Christendom.

In addition, we have concise proof that Jesus spoke Aramaic (Syriac) by his use of the Semitic greeting:
"Peace [Be] Unto You"

Which reads in Aramaic as "Shalama Alakhom" and is transliterated in the extended Afro-Asiatic Semitic languages as:

1.Shalom aleichem (Hebrew)
2. As-Salamu Alaykum (Arabic)

Luk 24:36 "And as they thus spake, Jesus himself stood in the midst of them, and saith unto them, Peace [be] unto you."

Jhn 20:19 "Then the same day at evening, being the first [day] of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled for fear of the Jews, came Jesus and stood in the midst, and saith unto them, Peace [be] unto you."

Jhn 20:21 "Then said Jesus to them again, Peace [be] unto you: as [my] Father hath sent me, even so send I you."

Jhn 20:26 "And after eight days again his disciples were within, and Thomas with them: [then] came Jesus, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, Peace [be] unto you."
The definifive of ELOI (My God)
As per Strong's Concordance and the Hebraic Professor extraordinaire Wilhelm Gesenius

The commentary is transliterated into English as follows:Eloi, Syriac form (Alahi, Elohi) for Hebrew Eli (Psalms 21, Psalms 22:2): Mark 15:34
We see from this Strong's concordance definition and commentary that Eloi in Syriac form is Alahi (My Alaha) and in Hebrew form Elohi (My Eloh).
The letter YOD is the possessive. ex: Malach = King, Malachi = My King. The definifive also lists as a root - Elahh (H426)

The etymological root of Eloi is Elahh and the corresponding root of Elahh is Elowahh (H433)

And as we can read here in the lexicon commentary composed by Gesenius: Elowahh is the true God and is the same as saying Allah and Alaha.
The commentary is transliterated as follows:

"ELOAH (with prefix and suffix L'ELoH Dan 11:38; L'ELoHW Hab. 1:11 m.God (Arab. ALLAH, ALAH, with art. ALLAH of the true God; Syr. [Aramaic] Alahu;Chald.ELOH)."

Alaha is the root of Allah as we see from this Jewish based definition.

Alaha in Aramaic (Syriac) [Alaph Ladamh He Alaph]

Allah in Arabia [Alif Laam Laam Ha]
Using Semitic language flash cards we see that "Alah" in Arabic and "Eloh" in Hebrew are the same word (God) that uses similar fonts.

We see here from these diagrams that Aramaic, Hebrew and Arabic are from the same family of languages.

Injeel Only!

Just as the original Ebionites from Nazareth has done in the past, from within Islam the Greek written Epistles of Paul of Tagus the shaytaan, half-breed, Roman citizen is rejected. The religion of Islam and Muslims do however prescribe to what they call the Injil, better known in the West as "the Gospel" aka the four books of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John as well as other original Hebraic/Caananite scripture.

The five scrolls of Islam are:

1. Suhuf of Ibrahim. Lost and not included in the Hebrew scriptures some say they are of the Sumerian cuneiform texts ex: Gilamesh Epic and Enuma Elish.

87.18 Most surely this is in the earlier scriptures,

87.19 The scriptures of Ibrahim and Musa.

2. The Tawrat (Torah) the five books of Moses

3:48 And He will teach him the Book and the wisdom and the Tavrat and the Injeel.

3:65 O followers of the Book! why do you dispute about Ibrahim, when the Taurat and the Injeel were not revealed till after him; do you not then understand?

3. Zabur aka the Tehillim or Books of Pslams

4.163 We have sent thee inspiration, as We sent it to Noah and the Messengers after him: we sent inspiration to Abraham, Isma'il, Isaac, Jacob and the Tribes, to Jesus, Job, Jonah, Aaron, and Solomon, and to David We gave the Psalms.

17.55 And it is your Lord that knoweth best all beings that are in the heavens and on earth: We did bestow on some prophets more (and other) gifts than on others: and We gave to David (the gift of) the Psalms.

21:105 Before this We wrote in the Psalms, after the Message (given to Moses): My servants the righteous, shall inherit the earth."

4. The Injil

3:3 He has revealed to you the Book with truth, verifying that which is before it, and He revealed the Tavrat and the Injeel aforetime, a guidance for the people, and He sent the Furqan.

5:47 And the followers of the Injeel should have judged by what Allah revealed in it; and whoever did not judge by what Allah revealed, those are they that are the transgressors.

5:68 Say: O followers of the Book! you follow no good till you keep up the Taurat and the Injeel and that which is revealed to you from your Lord; and surely that which has been revealed to you from your Lord shall make many of them increase in inordinacy and unbelief; grieve not therefore for the unbelieving people.

5. The Qur'aan



More verses from the Qur'aan featuring the Injeel:

5:46 And We sent after them in their footsteps Isa, son of Marium, verifying what was before him of the Taurat and We gave him the Injeel in which was guidance and light, and verifying what was before it of Taurat and a guidance and an admonition for those who guard (against evil).

5:66 And if they had kept up the Taurat and the Injeel and that which was revealed to them from their Lord, they would certainly have eaten from above them and from beneath their feet there is a party of them keeping to the moderate course, and (as for) most of them, evil is that which they do

5:110 When Allah will say: O Isa son of Marium! Remember My favor on you and on your mother, when I strengthened you I with the holy Spirit, you spoke to the people in the cradle and I when of old age, and when I taught you the Book and the wisdom and the Taurat and the Injeel; and when you determined out of clay a thing like the form of a bird by My permission, then you breathed into it and it became a bird by My permission, and you healed the blind and the leprous by My permission; and when you brought forth the dead by My permission; and when I withheld the children of Israel from you when you came to them with clear arguments, but those who disbelieved among them said: This is nothing but clear enchantment.

7:157 Those who follow the Messenger-Prophet, the Ummi, whom they find written down with them in the Taurat and the Injeel (who) enjoins them good and forbids them evil, and makes lawful to them the good things and makes unlawful to them impure things, and removes from them their burden and the shackles which were upon them; so (as for) those who believe in him and honor him and help him, and follow the light which has been sent down with him, these it is that are the successful.

9:111 Surely Allah has bought of the believers their persons and their property for this, that they shall have the garden; they fight in Allah's way, so they slay and are slain; a promise which is binding on Him in the Taurat and the Injeel and the Quran; and who is more faithful to his covenant than Allah? Rejoice therefore in the pledge which you have made; and that is the mighty achievement.

48:29 Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, and those with him are firm of heart against the unbelievers, compassionate among themselves; you will see them bowing down, prostrating themselves, seeking grace from Allah and pleasure; their marks are in their faces because of the effect of prostration; that is their description in the Taurat and their description in the Injeel; like as seed-produce that puts forth its sprout, then strengthens it, so it becomes stout and stands firmly on its stem, delighting the sowers that He may enrage the unbelievers on account of them; Allah has promised those among them who believe and do good, forgiveness and a great reward

57:27 Then We made Our messengers to follow in their footsteps, and We sent Isa son of Marium afterwards, and We gave him the Injeel, and We put in the hearts of those who followed him kindness and mercy; and (as for) monkery, they innovated it-- We did not prescribe it to them-- only to seek Allah's pleasure, but they did not observe it with its due observance; so We gave to those of them who believed their reward, and most of them are transgressors.

The personification of Yah from the crescent moon.

The Holy Tablets Chapter 10 Tablet 12:344: "But the cycle for the bible was the moon cycle and that cycle is ending."

History teaches us that the Canaanite/Egyptian deity Yah was once personified through the crescent moon, worshiped in humanoid form as referenced in your Torah and Egyptian Metu Neter (hieroglyphics).

By analyzing the etymological roots of the Hebrew language we then discover the very word Yahh יה (the personal name of the Semitic deity Yehovah by modern definitive) is closely associated with the crescent moon and was later joined in form with "Weh". Yah, of course, being the 1st half of the term Yah-Weh (Yehovah YHWH יהוה - the unpronounceable name).

Here are some other examples of "Yah" used in the compound form and associated with the moon:

  • Y@riychow ירחו (Jericho) = City of the Moon, (H3405)
  • Yareach ירח = Crescent Moon. (H3394)

Jericho: City of the Moon

E.A. Wallis Budge the worlds most renowned Egyptologist defined the Egyptian glyph "Aah" (Yah) as a moon deity in his Egyptian hieroglyphic dictionary and equated it directly to the Hebraic word Yareach ירח

The oldest Egyptian deity Osiris (Asar) is personified with the moon as Asar-Aah who the Phoenician/Semitic Hyksos (eventually to be known as the Hebrew - meaning "to cross") revered as YHWH after their expulsion (biblical Exodus) from Egypt by the Nubian 18th dynasty after ruling it for over 100 years.

Asar-Aah (Osiris the [Crescent] Moon) - who eventually was worshiped as YHWH

A collection of ancient artifacts from the many temples of the Yarikh moon deity worship in Tel Hazor located in the mountains of modern-day Israel.

Scholastic references...

"Early in Canaanite religion, the male moon-god, "Yerach," was the chief god of the pantheon. And the female sun-god, "Shamash," was his cohort. Later, these were changed to Baal and Ashteroth. "To judge from Canaanite place-names of the earliest period, such as Jericho and Beit-Yerach, as well as from Non-Semitic personal and place names of the 2nd millennium BC, the cult of the sun-god and moon-god (or goddess) was at its height in very early times and steadily declined thereafter" (W.F. Albright, Archaeology and the Religion of Israel, p. 92, also p. 83)."
"Röth (Die Aegypt. und die Zoroastr. Glaubenslehre, 1846, p. 175) derives the Hebrew name [Yahweh] from the ancient moon-god Ih or Ioh."

Even today Yarick is a common Jewish last name.

For those of you who think you don't acknowledge a moon deity then why do you go to work on MOON - Day?"

Can history be rewritten?

The Holy Tablets Chapter One (The Creation) Tablet 8:9

"A'lyun A'lyun El's time does not have a "then" only a "now", whereas each individual is at the point of "now", and looks back at multiple "thens".

So, much for the proverbial "written in stone."

The revival of Hebrew.

Ever since the spoken usage of Mishnaic Hebrew language ended in the second century AD, Hebrew had not been spoken as a mother tongue. Be that as it may, during the Middle Ages, the language was used by Jews in a wide variety of disciplines. This usage kept alive a substantial portion of the traits characteristic of Hebrew.

First and foremost, Classical Hebrew was preserved in full through well-recognized sources, chiefly the Tanakh (especially those portions used liturgically like the Torah, Haftarot, Megilot, and the Book of Psalms) and the Mishnah. Apart from these, Hebrew was known through hymns, prayers, midrashim, and the like.

During the Middle Ages, Hebrew was used as a written language in Rabbinical literature, including in judgments of Halakhah, Responsa, and books of meditation. In most cases, certainly in the base of Hebrew's revival, 18th and 19th century Europe, the use of Hebrew was not at all natural, but heavy in flowery language and quotations, non-grammatical forms, and mixing-in of other languages, especially Aramaic.

The use of Hebrew was not only in written language. Hebrew was also used as an articulated language, in synagogues and in batei midrash. Thus, Hebrew phonology and the pronunciation of vowels and consonants were preserved. Despite this, in the region the influence of foreign tongues caused many changes, leading to the development of three different forms of pronunciation:

Ashkenazi Hebrew, used by Eastern and Western European Jews, which maintained mostly the structure of vowels but may have lost the stress, and the gemination, although this cannot be known for sure, as there are no recordings of how the language (or its respective dialects) sounded e.g. in Kana'an; it should be noted that Ashkenazi Hebrew pronunciation has a variation of vowels and consonants, which follows closely the variation of the vowel and consonant signs written down by the masoretes around the 7th century CE, indicating that there is a strong link with the language heard by them. E.g. where we see two different vowel signs, or a consonant with resp. without a dogeish (dagesh), a difference is also heard in the various Ashkenazic pronunciations.

Sephardic Hebrew, used by Mizrahi Jews, preserved a structure different than the recognized Tiberian Hebrew niqqud of only five vowels, but did preserve the consonants, the grammatical stress, the dagesh, and the schwa; yet, different ways of writing consonants are not always heard in all Sephardic pronunciations. E.g. the Dutch Sephadic pronunciation does not make a difference between the beth with and without dagesh: both are pronounced as "b". The "taf" is always pronounced as "t", with or without dagesh. There are two possibilities: the difference disappeared over time in the Sephardic pronunciations, or it never was there in the first place: the pronunciation stems from a separate Hebrew dialect, which always was there, and which e.g. the masoretes did not use as reference.

Yemenite Hebrew language, which, though by some believed to preserve almost all the Classical Hebrew pronunciation, was barely known where the revival took place.

Within each of these groups, there also existed different subsets of pronunciation. For example, differences existed between the Hebrew used by Polish Jewry and that of Lithuanian Jewry and of Germany Jewry.

According to evidence discovered by researchers, it appears that in the fifty years preceding the start of the revival process, a version of spoken Hebrew already existed in the markets of Jerusalem. The Sephardic Jews who spoke Ladino or Arabic and the Ashkenazi Jews who spoke Yiddish needed a common language for commercial purposes. The most obvious choice was Hebrew. Though Hebrew was spoken in this case, it must be noted that it was not a native mother tongue, but a common language of limited use, a sort of Jewish lingua franca.

The linguistic situation the background of which the revival process occurred was then a situation of diglossia, when two languages--one of prestige and class and another of the masses--exist within one culture. In all of Europe, this phenomenon has waned, starting with English in the 16th century, but there were still differences between spoken street language and written language. For example, Russians spoke popular Russian to each other, but wrote in more prestigious Russian or French, while Germans spoke in local dialects and wrote in Standard German. The Jews had a similar situation: Yiddish was the spoken language, and the written language was Hebrew for liturgical purposes and the language of the broader culture - be it Russian, German, French, or Czech - for secular purposes


1. European Zionists restored Hebrew but they were not able to successfully restore the proper SYNTAX because of the expanding regions of those who considered themselves Hebrew. Thus we have a plethora of so-called "Hebraic" languages with a small margin for standard in syntax.

2. In fact, many, many common words in today's Hebrew was simply BORROWED from Arabic.

3. The revival of Hebrew came marginally with errors and variations in SYNTAX.

So for example, depending upon what scholar you read.. Elah, and Alah are both used for Strong's Concordance #H426.
