What exactly do you mean by “Giza Death Star”?

    Briefly, I meant this term to operate on a multitude of levels. The first would be a convenient way to reference the findings of Robert Bauval, who noted that the placements of the Great Pyramid, the Second Pyramid and the Third Pyramid at Giza were aligned to the three stars of Orion's belt. Given the preoccupation of that constellation with death in Egyptian mythology, it was a shorthand way of signifying that relationship. But secondly, I wanted also to underscore the interpretation of Sitchin of the Sumerian epic, the Lugal-e, which indicated a weapons function. I thus intended the term to indicate a weapon of great power and sophistication.

    I just finished “The Giza Death Star” and “The Giza Death Star Deployed” and I am just now starting “The Giza Death Star Destroyed.” While reading “Deployed” an idea hit me and stuck in my head. You were discussing the idea of standing waves setting up destructive vibrations in an object and it got me thinking about something related, but not quite the same thing. I don’t really study ancient texts, but I was a fan of von Daniken and Velikovsky when I was a teen. I found Sitchin kind of boring so I haven’t read any of his books completely through. I don’t have a working knowledge of any of the Vedic texts other than hearsay that claims that they describe what appear to be modern day aircraft and nuclear weapons. I have never read anything that addresses this so forgive me if you covered this elsewhere and I missed it or it is covered in the third book of the trilogy and I just haven’t gotten to it yet.

    Is it possible that the Giza complex was originally constructed as a deflector to be used against near earth objects, and that it may have been corrupted into use as a weapon? The scenario that keeps coming to me is that it was actually a tractor beam that used the physics you describe as a basis to create “drag” in the local space-time around an object that could be used to grab it and move or deflect it, much the way a stream of air from a fan can be used to grab a balloon and hold onto it or move it around. (I had a toy that used a fan to move balloons around when I was a kid. It was called “Moon Lander” or something like that) It was then corrupted into the weapon used to destroy the planet that became the asteroid belt, whose debris in turn made Mars uninhabitable. It was determined then that the Giza complex should be disabled, but not before it was used to drag the earth’s moon into it’s obviously manufactured orbit so it could help clear earth’s orbit from any other NEO’s.

    I believe that homo sapiens was then stripped of all of its technology as punishment and we were left to rebuild our civilization from scratch. Like I said, I don’t ever remember hearing this theory expressed before as I stated it here, but after reading the first two “Giza Death Star” books it got stuck in my head and it makes more sense, the more I think about it.

    Zecharia Sitchin never said that the pyramids had a weapons function, he said that The Great Pyramid was part of a landing corridor that the Anunnakis used and according to his translations of ancient sumerian texts that it was built around 11000bc which corroborates John Anthony West and Graham Hancock’s findings.

    Hello ,
    are there any translations in dutch ?

    I posted too fast, the mystery unfolds


  5. Steven A on October 30, 2008 at 6:40 pm

    I just ran into the Richat Structure. It’s a giant anomaly in the Sahara desert that, well, there was either a nuke test or an Atlantean connection somewhere (3 concentric rings).

    Here’s the wikipedia entry http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richat_Structure

    Never heard you mention it so just a heads up

    Good job answering everyone’s Qs Joseph!

    Dear Steve:

    Most of the questions you ask here are answered to some extent in my book The Cosmic War: Interplanetary Warfare, Modern Physics, and Ancient Texts. Briefly, the chronology of the Exploded Planet Hypothesis posits the explosion – for various reasons outlined in that book – at ca. 65 OR 3.2 million years ago. As for who is doing this, as I aver in that book, the genus “homo sapiens” may have greater extent than merely confinement to earth…we, i.e., homo sapiens sapiens, have “cousins” out there genetically related to us. I allude to this as well in the section of SS Brotherhood of the Bell that examines some peculiar statements of the MJ-12 Cooper-Cantwheel documents.

    As for the final theological question, I am a definite believer in God and Christ, and yes, of His infinitely compassionate, loving, and merciful nature. And yes, I believe in personal immortality, and the reasons for the latter are in my opinion – and directly counter to much alternative and even “mainstream” literature in physics (e.g. Frank Tipler’s The Physics of Immortality) – is that if you examine my conclusions concerning ancient belief and understanding of the “information creating” nature of the physical medium, once any set of particularized information is created, it is never lost, but always present. Difficult to explain in such a short comment box, but there it is.

      Hello Dr. Farrell,

      I have only come across your work as of today and have been fascinated by what I have read thus far. I find the theories mentioned here of the Giza pyramids as being a weapon of sorts that may have been used to destroy a planet that once lay where the Asteroid Belt is today interesting. I was currious if you were familiar with Jim Marrs book “Rule by Secrecy” and his theory (towards the end of the book) concerning the Sumerian Creation myth: That the Earth itself was larger and existed beyond Mars and that it was crashed into by the planet Timat which revolves around the sun on a 3600 Earth Year loop. That crash moved Earth into its current orbit and was what gave birth to our moon. Human beings were the result of the seeding of Earth by the “gods” who resided on Timat who continue to check in on us from time to time.
      I am not well versed in Sumerian mythology and wanted to hear your thoughts on the theory if you please.

      I look forward to read your thoughts and to follow your work going forward.

        I am familiar with those sorts of theories (and know Jim Marrs personally as a friend), but I do not subscribe to the catastrophist school. My book, The Cosmic War, which you can order here off my webstore, goes into the whole scenario of a Cosmic War

    First, thank you for being another author who indicates the importance of starting one’s worldview before the first dynasty of Ancient Egypt (3,000 B.C.). The civilization of Sumer seems to begin at 5,300 B.C. with the Ubaid. The Met Museum had an exhibit in the 1980s: Treasures of the Holy Land, Ancient Art from the Israel Museum. I saw an artifact from the Natufian Period, 10,000 B.C.

    The Enuma Elish seems to be no older than 1,400 B.C.

    Approximately when did (clarification may be needed) Marduk on Earth take the Great Pyramid weapon and point its energy beyond the Moon, beyond Mars, to Krypton (Tiamat) and blow that planet up? What hominid species were involved? Only Homo sapiens sapiens?

    I tried looking for the age of the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter but can’t get an answer.

    The further clarification I’m looking for is this. Are you saying the big planet Krypton had a lot of water on it and when it was blown up, the water fell on Mars and wiped out its atmosphere? Then it seems some of the water came to Earth causing the Flood myths here. Please confirm or explain.

    I’m thinking if water left the Earth, it would freeze and upon coming in contact with another planet’s atmosphere would melt and rain from higher altitudes than rain usually originates?

    As I try to explore the concept that the God of our Solar System doesn’t start with Abraham, is there a Creator-God and a Caretaking God of humans that loves us and has a heaven for us when we die?

    I am looking forward to your answers.

    With kind regards,

    No the producer for Star Trek Enterprise is not me….however….they may have read SS BRotherhood of the Bell, as one of their final episodes was about Nazi Time travel and one scene depicted several “Bell” like devices in that episode.

    All the best,

  10. zupakomputer on September 17, 2008 at 1:18 pm

    Apologies if this has been answered before (I tried a search but nothing came up onsite) – I’ve watched a few repeats of Star Trek Enterprise episodes, and the credits at the start mention someone with the same name as you. Is that a coincidence or did you work on that series?

    What is the proper order to read your books in?
