When you think of the Bible story of Noah and the Ark, most of us tend to simply think that somehow a great flood did occur, but does the Bible give us any more information about it?
In reading the Old Testament in order to answer this question, we need to keep in mind that all of the Bibles that exist today have been translated from older writings, primarily from ancient Hebrew. For this reason, translations can vary to some degree and it is often necessary for the serious scholar to refer back to the original Hebrew to be sure of the meaning that was intended by any particular passage. With that in mind, let us begin by looking at the King James Bible, where we can find several references related to the Great Flood.
Genesis 7:11, tells us, "In the six hundredth year of Noah's life ... were all the fountains of the great deep broken up and the windows of heaven were opened."
Proverbs 8:28, reads, "When (God) established the clouds above, when he strengthened the fountains of the deep:"
Psalm 77, describes the events related to the Great Flood as follows, (16) "... the waters saw thee; they were afraid: the depths also were troubled. (17) ... thine arrows also went abroad. (18) ... the lightnings lightened the world: the earth trembled and shook. (19) Thy way is in the sea, and thy path in the great waters, and thy footsteps are not known.
If we begin with Genesis 7:11, we are told that when the Great Flood occurred, first the fountains of the great deep were broken up, and then the windows (or "sluices" as this word has also been interpreted) of heaven were opened up. "What are the fountains of the great deep?"
The ancient Hebrew words that have been translated as "fountains of the great deep" refer to the abysses of the ocean, and to subterranean oceans, and generally to the ocean floor. Proverbs 8:28, which talks about the preparation of the earth for living things, tells us that the clouds were established above, and the fountains of the deep were strengthened. We can understand this then to mean that the crust of the earth, the ocean floor, had to become solid to cover the subterranean ocean of molten lava beneath the earth's crust so that oceans of water could exist above it. We can then see that Genesis 7:11, is saying that first the crust of the earth underneath the oceans was somehow broken up, and then the sluices of heaven were opened.
If we now look at the lines shown above from Psalm 77, we are told that something approached the waters; something of sufficient size and power to make the waters afraid. We also read that arrows went abroad, but something more profound seems to emerge if we look into the Hebrew words that have been translated as "arrows went abroad."
The Hebrew word translated as arrows is "Chatsats." Many Bible scholars feel that this word is used figuratively in the Bible to represent not only physical arrows shot by an archer, but also to represent lightning, and lightning-like phenomena. Line 18, however, of Psalm 77, tells us about the lightning, so does Chatsats, as it is used in line 17, mean something different than just everyday lightning?
In Hebrew, chatsats conveys meanings that include both stones and arrows, and the exact meaning must always be taken in context. The ancient Hebrew root of chatsats, however, conveys the additional concept of something that has the power to divide: an arrow or a stone that strikes with sufficient force to divide, or split, its target.
When we combine these various concepts contained in the word chatsats, instead of arrows or normal lightning, we can visualize some sort of stone that is fiery or sparking like lightning and moving with sufficient force to cause some serious damage when it strikes. Accordingly, some translations of line 17, like the one shown by Zechariah Sitchin, in his book The 12th Planet, read, "thine splitting sparks went forth."
What in the experience of mankind could fit this image of fiery rocks, or splitting sparks, which move at a great enough speed to be able to penetrate the ocean waters to the bottom and still have sufficient force left to break up the crust of the earth? Did somebody say, "Meteors?" Consider also a few others facts that help to clarify what happened.
1) There has been much discussion by scientists about the fact that meteors, or asteroids, have struck the earth before with sufficient size to cause major calamities. This phenomenon has even been proposed as the cause for the disappearance of the dinosaurs. The news recently told of how scientists today are seriously discussing contingency plans to be prepared for just such an eventuality;
2) From time to time the newspapers carry stories of the Wooly Mammoths that they find that were seemingly quick frozen in Siberia, so quickly that tropical vegetation lies undigested in their stomachs. James Churchward, author of The Lost Continent of Mu, writes about these findings and presents further evidence that a huge tidal wave, moving in a northwesterly direction, swept across tropical areas, killing the mammoths suddenly and depositing their bodies far away in Siberia, where they quickly froze; and
3) Scientists tell us that an ice age prevailed upon the earth for 15 or 20 thousand years, but instead of slowly being brought to an end by changing climatic cycles, it mysteriously and suddenly ended about 11 to 12 thousand years ago.
When we examine the old Testament writings about the Great Flood with all of these things in mind, we can begin to imagine what might have caused the Great Flood and we can see how the Bible information corroborates the story of the destruction of Lemuria, 12,000 years ago. We can imagine the ocean waters literally trembling at the sight of huge flaming meteors approaching and then crashing to and through the ocean floor on the northwestern side of the continent of Lemuria in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. The whole earth shook as the earth's crust was broken up and hot lava issued forth, boiling the ocean waters and sending vast amounts of water vapor and dust into the air. The ice age covering over the southern Pacific Ocean was probably shattered by smaller meteors along for the ride, sending countless particles of ice into the atmosphere. Altogether it was a cloud seeding operation on a tremendous scale, opening the sluices of the heavens and then raining for days on end. And as Mu sunk beneath the sea, a great tidal wave disappeared to the northwest and a smaller one to the southeast, carrying the already dead carcasses of wooly mammoths and other animals along with it, and the last Ice Age, as well as the last Golden Age, were suddenly brought to a devastating ending.
Atlantis suffered a similar fate approximately 500 years later, abruptly ending the ice age in the Northern Hemisphere.
What does all this have to do with Kriya? If James Churchward is correct in saying that at some time in the past, there was only one religion, then Mu is the source of that religion and the practice of Kriya, itself, and these things were disseminated from Mu to the rest of the world. (Lemuria seems to be a name popularized in fairly recent times, but the histories of the Mayans and others refer to the continent that once existed in the Pacific Ocean as Mu.)
