Megalithic Bible: Jacob's Pillar of Stone

Megalithic Bible: Jacob's Pillar of Stone

Jacobs Erects and Worships a Pillar of Stone

    Early accounts of the Megalithic Religion can be found with the story of Jacob in the Book of Genesis (circa 1900 B.C.). “Genesis 28: 18 “And Jacob rose up early in the morning, and took the stone that he had put for his pillows, and set it up for a pillar, and poured oil upon the top of it.' Genesis 31 “Then Jacob took a stone and set it up as a pillar. Jacob said to his kinsmen, "Gather stones." So they took stones and made a heap, and they ate there by the heap. Now Laban called it Jegar-sahadutha, but Jacob called it Galeed.”

The jawbones were full of teeth. There was found also what seemed to be a shriveled hand, like that of a little child.

Mr. Mock from Indiana Goes to the Smithsonian to Talk Relics and Giants. Hmmm

Mr. Mock from Indiana Goes to the Smithsonian to Talk Relics and Giants.  Hmmm




Evening Star, September 14, 1897, 
      M.G. Mock of Muncie Ind., who has a large collection of Indian and Mound builders relic and curiosities, was at the Smithsonian Institution yesterday. Mr. Mock has probably 10,000 objects in his collection, which he has gotten together simply to gratify a taste of his own in this regard. He has been making the collection for thirteen years and is exceedingly proud of his acquisitions. Whenever Mr. Mock is in Washington he visits the Smithsonian to have a chat with the heads of the department of prehistoric anthropology, compare notes with them and examine any new objects of interest which have been secured by the institution since his previous visit.  Mr. Mock has been in mounds in many of the states, delving for the relics of the mysterious race who buried their dead and then erected the mounds as monuments. The more prominent the persons are, too, the more relics are found about them.  Pottery is often found in the mounds, but is generally in imperfect condition. Some of the skeletons found in the mounds have been those of men of gigantic proportions, seven feet or more in height." Mr. Mock is a prominent member of the Order of Red Men and was passing through Washington to attend the convention in Philadelphia.

Ancient Mass Grave That Included Women and Children Described in Dearborn County, Indiana

Ancient Mass Grave That Included Women and Children Described in Dearborn County, Indiana



History of Dearborn and Ohio Counties, Indiana, 1885 
      There is a large mound in Mr. Allen's field about twenty feet high, sixty feet in diameter at the base, which contains a greater proportion of bones than anyone I ever before examined, as almost every shovel full of dirt would contain several fragments of a human skeleton. When on Whitewater, I obtained the assistance of several of the inhabitants for the purpose of making a thorough examination of the internal structure of these monuments of the ancient populousness of the country. We examined from fifteen to twenty. In some, whose height was from ten to fifteen feet, we could not find more than four or five skeletons. In one not the least appearance of a human bone was to be found. Others were so full of bones, as to warrant the belief that they originally contained at least 100 dead bodies of children of different ages and the full grown, appeared to have been piled together promiscuously. We found several skulls, leg and thigh bones, which plainly indicate their possessors were men of gigantic stature. The skull of one skeleton was one-fourth of an inch thick; and the teeth were remarkably even, sound and handsome, all firmly planted. The fore teeth were very deep and not so wide as those of the generality of the white people. Indeed, there seemed a great degree of regularity in the form of the teeth in all the mounds."
