      wonder they wanted to use nuclear weapons, to bust through that...What a
      disgusting display of egos on a World Heritage Site. I wish Jupiter would
      take the land from them, no one should have it.

      In The News: Baalbek

      War Comes to the "Landing Place"
      The name of an ancient site – Ba’albek in Lebanon – has now been mentioned
      in dispatches by war correspondents covering the latest flareup in the
      Middle East. Israeli planes have been dropping bombs there on training and
      supply encampments of Hezbollah terrorists, in a tit-for-tat for the latter’
      s missile attacks on Israel. Some of the dispatches refer to the town’s
      “Roman ruins” - remains of temples that Roman emperors erected in honor of
      Rome’s gods; but little, if any, mention is made of the place’s earlier and
      much more significant archaeological remains.
      I and those who have been with me to the place several years ago can
      attest that the “Roman ruins” are indeed imposing remains of three
      magnificent temples, including the largest temple to Jupiter anywhere in the
      Roman empire, Rome itself included - as an artist’s reconstruction shows
      (Fig. 1). But the Romans came there because the place had been revered
      earlier by the Greeks. Pompey, Rome’s conquering general, offered there
      sacrifices in 60 B.C. imitating Alexander the Great who paid there homage to
      Zeus centuries earlier. The Greeks came because the place was deemed a
      unique sacred site by the Phoenicians and the Babylonians before them; and
      before all those generals and emperors and kings, Gilgamesh, king of Uruk in
      ancient Sumer, went there circa 2900 B.C. to obtain immortality from the

      The “Landing Place”
      Having been the son of the goddess Ninsun and the high priest of Uruk,
      Gilgamesh was considered not just a demigod but “two thirds divine.” This,
      he asserted, entitled him to avoid the death of a mortal. Yes, his mother
      told him - but to attain our longevity you have to go to our planet, Nibiru
      (where one year equals 3,600 Earth-years). So Gilgamesh journeyed from Sumer
      (now southern Iraq) to ‘The Landing Place” in the cedar mountains where the
      rocketships of the gods were lofted.
      The Epic of Gilgamesh, a text found inscribed on clay tablets, actually
      describes how Gilgamesh witnessed a rocketship being launched from the
      Landing Place. A later Phoenician coin depicted such a rocket standing on a
      launching pad (Fig. 2).

      As this depiction shows, the launch facility was located on a great
      platform; and indeed, the truly ancient site of Baalbek encompassed a paved
      stone platform of about five million square feet!
      The Colossal Stone Blocks
      The most important section of that ancient Landing Place was its
      northwestern corner, where the remains of the Jupiter temple are located.
      Its ruins stand atop a platform that rose even higher by rows of perfectly
      shaped stone blocks weighing some 600 tons each. (Fig. 3); this is a weight
      that no existing modern equipment can lift. (By comparison, the stone blocks
      of the Great Pyramid in Giza, Egypt, weigh about 25 tons each).

      These are far from being the largest stone blocks there. As described in
      my latest illustrated book The Earth Chronicles Expeditions, the ever-rising
      layers of these stone blocks form, in the northwestern corner, a funnel-like
      stone tower. The western wall of that towerlike structure has been
      reinforced with rows (“courses”) of stone blocks weighing 900 tons each. On
      top of them, another higher course is made up of three unique stone blocks
      weighing 1,100 tons each. Known as the Trilithon, these are the largest cut
      and shaped construction stone blocks in the world! (Fig. 4).

      The Quarry
      The enigmas surrounding the site and the colossal stone blocks do not
      include one puzzle - where were those stone blocks quarried; because at a
      stone quarry about two miles away from the site, one of those 1,100-ton
      blocks is still there – its quarrying unfinished.
      To show it, and give an idea of its size, I had my group stand shoulder to
      shoulder at the foot of this stone block – an accomplishment commemorated by
      the enclosed photograph (Fig. 5).

      The quarry is in a valley, a couple of miles from the site of the “ruins.”
      This means that in antiquity, someone had the capability and technology
      needed for quarrying, cutting and shaping colossal stone blocks in the
      quarry – then lifting the stone blocks up and carrying them to the
      construction site, and there not just let go and drop the stone block, but
      place them precisely in the designated course. And there they have remained,
      intact and unshaken in spite of the passage of time and frequent
      earthquakes – held together and in place without any mortar…
      Built Before the Flood Who was that “someone?” What technology was used
      for the incredible feat? When and Why was it all done?
      The Maronite Christians who for generations deemed themselves custodians
      of the site (before they were displaced by the Shiite Moslems) told legends
      of the “giants” who had built the colossal platform. I found the answers in
      the ancient Sumerian texts, and related them in The Stairway to Heaven and
      The Wars of Gods and Men.
      The great stone platform was indeed the first Landing Place of the
      Anunnaki gods on Earth, built by them before they established a proper
      spaceport. It was the only structure that had survived the Flood, and was
      used by Enki and Enlil as the post-Diluvial headquarters for the
      reconstruction of the devastated Earth.
      It is the only structure on Earth from before the Flood.
