CITIES OF GIANTS SURVIVE – EMPTY
Worldwide, most ancient cities have vanished.
Not so the region of Bashan, in Syria. It is
literally crowded with towns and large villages
- most of them, until recently, deserted.
Yet they are not ruined! Many of the houses in
these cities are perfect, as if only finished
yesterday. The walls are sound, the roofs
unbroken, the doors, and even the window-shutters
The walls of the cities are 15 feet thick and
30 feet high. The huge gates have been found
still in place.
Some of the buildings in the city of Bozrah would
grace the proudest modern Western city.
These ancient streets are paved - still perfect,
not a stone out of place.
Even the walls of houses are up to eight feet
thick, built of large squared blocks of basalt,
The roofs are made of basalt slabs, cut like planks
and reaching from wall to wall.
Heavy slabs form the ceilings. The massive
doors hang upon pivots, working in sockets, as
do the window-shutters. The black basalt used
is almost as hard as iron.
One early explorer measured doors 9 feet high by
4½ feet wide and 10 inches thick. In one door
was seen a place for a massive lock.
The doors are tastefully ornamented with panels
and garlands of fruit and flowers, sculptured in
ROOMS TWICE AS HIGH AS OURS
Rooms inside private houses measure up to 20
feet high. Here are huge rooms and apartments
in perfect preservation.
Moss grows over the ruins. Groups of tapering
columns spring up from the dense foliage of the
oaks. Luxuriant creepers twist around the pillars.
Brambles grow in festoons over the doorways.
Branches of trees shoot through gaping cracks in
some old walls.
Owls flap their wings and foxes and jackals
scamper along the streets.
So perfect is every street, every house, every
room - so perfect, yet not a sound. Huge
houses built among wild rocks, hundreds of
houses per city, still perfect, but not a man to
live in them.
Remains of fountains and statues, too.
The private houses bear the marks of the most
They leave us to conclude that the cities were
built by giants - a race of giants that has been
extinct for more than 3,000 years.
Eyewitness accounts in the Bible speak of the
giants that inhabited these cities around 1500 BC.
The bed of one them, King Og, in the Ammonite city
of Rabbah, was made of iron and was "more than 15
feet long and almost 7 feet wide. It can still be
seen." (Deuteronomy 3:11)
As recently as the 1800s, the highways of Bashan
were still in place, completely covered here and
there, with the branches of oak trees and
CEMENT WE CANNOT REPRODUCE
The Great pyramid of Giza in Egypt had sides
totalling 5¼ acres, finished off like glass, and
took on the appearance of an immense mirror,
whose reflections could be seen for more than 50
miles (80 kilometers).
The visible surfaces were worked as accurately
as modern opticians’ work.
(Today tourists can see only blocks of rough
-looking stone, rising as in steps; the Arabs
have stripped the building of its outer casing
for use in other buildings in Cairo.)
The stone blocks of the Great pyramid were
joined together with cement which was painted on
Modern chemists can analyse this cement, but are
UNABLE TO PRODUCE IT.
Yet, this cement, as thin as a sheet of tissue
paper, can hold a vertical joint as large as
5 feet by 7 feet in area.
The cement is so tough that the limestone blocks
will break before the cement gives way. So fine
is the join that a photograph fails to reveal it.
DISCOVERIES BY AMATEURS
We tend to regard professionals as the only people
worth taking notice of, when it comes to
discoveries being made in their field.
If an amateur makes a statement – or even a
discovery – it is commonly regarded with suspicion.
On this point, I recall that on July 29, 1997, an
amateur astronomer in Adelaide, Australia,
announced the discovery of a new comet.
Up to that date, 71 comets had been discovered by
amateurs during the twentieth century!
Did you know that some of the world’s great
archaeological discoveries have been made by
When Heinrich Schliemann said he’d discovered
Troy, the scientific community snubbed him.
And there was John Lloyd Stephens who discovered
wondrous things among the Mayan ruins of Central
America. Another amateur.
It was Champollion the “amateur” who got
One could say that our knowledge has been
deepened more through the efforts of amateurs
like Fawcett, Schliemann and Heyerdahl, than
through the efforts of franchised experts.
The cause of science is not served by automatic
ridicule of amateurs. Any person who so behaves
is an enemy of science. He may be listed in
Who’s Who, but he doesn’t know what’s what.
Both Schliemann (who discovered Troy) and Carter
who found Tutankhamen’s tomb) were criticised by
the academia of their day.
It is worth noting, however, that while the
world remembers the names of the two men
Schliemann and Carter – no one remembers the
names of their critics!
So if you think there is no hope you could ever
make your mark, just think again!
You have just taken a tiny peep into the vibrant
sequel of “Dead Men’s Secrets”.
It is called - what else? - "MORE Dead Men's
And because you are on my special exclusive list,
it is available to you as an e-book before the
