Resolution of the long-standing argument between creationists and
evolutionists will only ensue if there was undeniable proof of God. The atheist,
agnostic, skeptic, philosopher, theocrat, presidents, kings, prime ministers and
captains of industry would have to take a stand. Atheists would need to humbly
submit themselves or directly and knowingly contend with God. Skeptics could no
longer exist with undeniable proof of God. Democracy would become pointless if
the truth flies in the face of what the greater majority believe. Can we vote
for the truth? Philosophy and philosophers would now be redundant. Who would be
held accountable if the present condition of the world is a result of what the
most intelligent people are thinking. These are just a few of the questions
whose answers are all hypothetical until someone lights the blue touch paper.
The Bible itself admits to a mystery that will eventually be finished. (Rev
10:7) A mystery implies an eventual solution, which will only be had through
contemplation and understanding. Will this revelation come through an
archaeological enterprise? It is seldom contended that the Bible is one of the
foremost texts responsible for substantiating archaeological finds. This virtue
is extended by means of it's engendering many archaeological excursions to their
execution and rewarding accomplishment. Archaeology has returned this favor by
proving to be a proponent for the accuracy of the Bible's contents and the
credibility of its authors. The very shrewd Indiana Jones wannabe's should spend
much time contemplating the Bibles contents before calling their travel agents.
Using archaeological metaphor to encourage the pursuit of wisdom the Bible touts
itself as the source:
"If thou seekest her as silver, and searchest for her as for hid
treasures; Then shalt thou understand the fear of the LORD, and find the
knowledge of God. For the LORD giveth wisdom: out of his mouth cometh
knowledge and understanding."
This wisdom, which includes the variety that fuels even the most ambitious
archaeologist, can be acquired at very little expense and with much delight from
one of the most comfortable and convenient venues on the planet, digging for
hidden treasure, from your armchair.
Thanks to technology and the Internet, digging has been automated with Bible
study aids that electronically compare translations, cross reference
concordances and explain subtleties and anomalies of the Greek or Hebrew
languages. With the advent of the World Wide Web there is now access to an
immeasurable number of archaeological references and historical texts archived
in the public record. Powerful search engines can use Boolean expressions to
quickly resolve a proposition or comprehend the previously unknown. An entire
archaeological excursion could be hatched and accomplished without having to
renew your passport or check your baggage.
An Archaeologist feels most accomplished when he corrects or rewrites
history, giving to people a life enhancing truth which, remains firmly anchored
in the public record. All of this could be achieved from the comfortable
confines of your armchair.
What to explore though?
Rather than examine the trivial and unexciting, why not go digging for the
most profound and exhilarating? It was Carl Sagan who once said:
"Somewhere something incredible is
waiting to be known."
All the writings of the Bible eventually lead to the arrival of the messiah
and God's Kingdom as the solution to our world's problems. This is something
millions of Christians around the world pray for daily,
"Let your kingdom come". A most
significant question now arises. When will this kingdom come? Certainly the
Bible itself should provide the answer. In both the contemporary and historical
record however, the answer remains either unclear or contended to the extreme.
This is a question whose answer must be worth enough value and excitement to
justify the expense of launching an expedition. As armchair archaeologists
however, we need to be attentive to those clues in the text that result in
tangible evidences. This is where the thrill starts. Is there evidence in the
text we can see, touch, hear, smell, taste or measure? If the answer is yes, we
have the collateral to launch our armchair expedition. Following are three
scriptures found in the Bible, which give indications of the events that should
immediately precede the arrival of this most important kingdom:
"The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand, until I make
thine enemies thy footstool. The LORD shall send the rod of thy strength out
of Zion: rule thou in the midst of thine enemies."
"Thus saith the Lord, the heavens is my throne, and the earth is my
"And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and
strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the
accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day
Immediately prior to the arrival of this kingdom Satan the devil (the accuser
of our brethren) and angels, which side with him, are to do battle in heaven and
then be cast down to the earth. This is more evident if you sit back in your
read the surrounding scriptures.
Will this enormous
battle between the most powerful creatures
in the universe, which starts in heaven and yet concludes in the immediate
vicinity of the earth, be something, which goes by, unnoticed to this planet's
inhabitants? It is Jesus Christ himself who provides a hint that can launch our
armchair adventure. The hint is dropped at Luke Chapter 10 verse 18:
"And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven."
Many of those higher critics doing Bible research for strictly academic
purposes will contend that Jesus is using allegory in this verse. This would
become a mundane and disappointing conclusion to accept for an archaeologist
eager to pursue his ambition. Archaeological excitement can only be achieved
here if we have the courage to rebel against those who cling to their deeply
entrenched and untested "truths" handed down through the generations and
supported only by tradition and repetition. The circumstantial evidences found
so far show great promise of finding something more tangible. Finding lightning
from our armchair however, seems to be an overwhelming task, exactly what would
we be looking for? This creates a necessary occasion to ponder a little before
either abandoning or pursuing more tangible evidences.
If Satan's "casting down to earth" was identical to ordinary lightning then
it could not be found. If it was indeed Jesus' intention however, that his words
should be used to determine the arrival of his kingdom, then some extraordinary
manifestation of lightning should eventually be evident and available for all to
find. Clues intended for the purpose of their eventual discovery. Now we have
some idea about what we should be looking for which seems plausible
This conclusion must then bring us to an inevitable question:
What if the kingdom has already come?
This is where the metaphorical digging process begins. Although the task is
not insignificant, it is still not so overwhelming that we abandon it without an
effort. In the immediate vicinity of our cosy armchair are some very powerful
archeological implements. Internet search engines and
Bible discussion forums lead to
the very interesting discovery that some
small Christian religions have
used Bible chronology in a profound way to determine the date of this kingdoms
arrival as being the
year 1914. If this is true we now have a stake in the ground from
which to start looking for the extraordinary manifestation of lightning in the
public record. As we know what to look for and when to start looking, our search
for lightning is no longer such a formidable task. Previous to the Internet this
task may have been considered impossible. Perhaps that is why I can find no
previous evidence this has ever been performed.
By employing keyword search criteria that includes a date, we can now use the
Internet search engines to step back through time, 1914, 1913, 1912, 1911, 1910,
1909 and finally in
1908 we eventually discover an
extraordinarily powerful and unusual manifestation of lightning. Several years
before 1914 on June 30th, 1908 in Tunguska, Siberia a very
powerful flash of light was
instantly scorching trees over
a distance of 50 kilometers initiating an even larger forest fire. This flash of
light was also responsible for immediately
incinerating entire herds of reindeer.
At almost the same time an explosion uprooted and blew down approximately
80 million of these trees in a
radius of about 20 miles. Certainly this lightning is well beyond the ordinary
and worthy of further examination, especially considering the reasons for
expecting its discovery and still yet actually finding it.
Please take some time to yourself now, to consider the implication of this
discovery. The Bible gives every indication to expect an extraordinarily
powerful manifestation of lightning immediately prior to Jesus becoming king in
the heavens! It has now been discovered! Not only has it been discovered, the
date of it's discovery is immediately prior to the date forecast by a small
Christian world wide religion! After this time Jesus is no longer "sitting at
the right hand of God", Psalm 110:1.
Do not let the profundity elude you. There is now physical evidence which
supports what is written in the Bible. Not only circumstantial yet also now
tangible proofs that God, Jesus Christ and Satan exists. This proof exists in
our timeframe, not in an ancient historical record, but in a more contemporary
printed newspaper. As you continue to read this article the circumstantial and
tangible proofs will build a composite total of evidences which completely
overwhelm coincidence and in my opinion drive any thought of skepticism beyond
So what next!
Back to the armchair and a small stack of
Tunguska Event books all
ordered over the Internet, authored by scientists or journalists keen to examine
this extraordinary event. It's interesting to contemplate how these scientists
are trying to resolve the problem of the Tunguska Event and yet while searching
from the armchair for something entirely different, the Tunguska Event itself is
discovered as the solution. Like finding a chicken then looking for its egg
instead of finding an egg then looking for the chicken. This archeologist now
has both the chicken and the egg in hand while the scientists and journalists
have the egg and are still looking for the chicken. The smiles and chuckles give
some sensual pleasure however; the end result of this armchair adventure should
hopefully result in a much larger accomplishment than embarrassing a few
red-faced scientists. Browsing web sites, cups of coffee, white papers,
expedition notes, abstracts, conferences, research papers. Hundreds of
scientists and almost the same number of years and not one has proposed a
commonly accepted explanation let alone examined it from a biblical or
scriptural point of view. Have archaeologists never examined this? The result of
all this armchair inquiry however, is the following very profound discovery and
This extraordinarily powerful flash of lightning succeeded the movement towards
the earth of a
visible body. If the rationales
here are to be correct then, it stands to reason the identity of the body should
be Satan himself!
The adventure is still unfinished which, is appropriate, as what we have so
far may not be enough to convince the skeptics. Time to fluff the pillow again
and do some introspection. Jesus must have known while making his statement at
Luke 10:18 that a body would precede this lightning. Some textual evidence
should also exist with which to identify this body if it was his intention to
use his words literally. Jesus certainly would not have intentionally left us
hanging in some inconclusive never land. That would deny his renowned benevolent
character. This leads to the comforting conclusion that
actual eyewitness testimonies
gathered from the investigators of this Tunguska Event could be used to measure
the physical appearance of Satan.
In the Bible Satan is likened to a serpent, dragon or lion however; if either of
these were not allegorical it would already be immediately evident in the
eyewitness testimony and make further investigation unnecessary. A
straightforward examination of the Bible texts reveals something quite different
from the expected goatee, horns, red caped and cloven footed image traditionally
accepted and taught through a variety of both secular and spiritual media.
So what does the Bible say?
Please do not take offense however, the only way to convince an already
preconditioned audience, would be to have them carefully examine each scripture
in order to reach a truly biblical conclusion, untainted by religious tradition
or secular media. Get your Bible out and hold on to your armrest, as what
follows is an armchair evaluation of scriptures. These can be used to identify
and measure the physical appearance of ----- Satan the Devil:
1/ Bible verse ------- Isaiah 14:12
"How art thou fallen from heaven, O shining one, son of the morning!
how art thou cut down to the earth, which didst weaken the nations!"
The physical manifestation in this scripture is that Satan should be very
shiny and bright, perhaps difficult to look at. It is interesting the
manifestation is discovered in a verse, which describes his eventual "casting
down to earth". (Compare also Ezekiel 28:17)
2/ Bible verse -----1 Peter 5:8
1 Peter 5:8
"Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion,
walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: "
The physical manifestation here is the noise of roaring which we should
expect to be very loud and frightening. It also mentions that he "walks" so we
could expect that his movements are self-directed although in this situation he
is subject against his will. Many scientists would be expecting objects that
approach the earth to be ballistic in nature perhaps not perceiving these may be
sentient. It is therefore reasonable to assume their scientific examination
should provide evidence of their inability to agree on the ballistic nature of
the approaching body.
3/ Bible verse ----- Ezekiel 28:13
"Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone was
thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx,
and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold:
the workmanship of thy taborets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in
the day that thou wast created."
A "pipe" is a very familiar word however, "taboret" is now an uncommon word
in the English Language. Therefore the
Merriam-Webster dictionary definition of "taboret"
tabouret, literally, small drum, from Middle French, diminutive of tabor,
1 : a cylindrical
seat or stool without arms or back
2 :a small
portable stand or cabinet
From the description of the materials used to create Satan it seems he should
have a body of great beauty. It could also be possible the materials described
in this verse may be discovered in greater abundance at the impact site than
would normally be expected. This may be the incentive to purchase that ticket
and pack those bags.
In conclusion it should be expected that a pipe or cylindrical object,
shining very brightly and accompanied by loud roaring yet also not moving in a
ballistic way like we would expect a meteorite. This and the extraordinary
manifestation of lightning should be enough composite evidence to test the
objects expected identity against the scriptures. Very different from the
goatee, horns and pitchfork expected.
There are many documented eyewitness testimonies. A newspaper excerpt has
been chosen however, with which you could initially test the expectation as it
resolves with more credibility. This excerpt was found at the Internet link that
is also identified in the immediate following:
Leonid Kulik was selected by the Soviet Academy of Sciences to investigate
what happened. He began by gathering eyewitness accounts of the event. Many
newspapers recorded the explosion, like the Irkutsk newspaper Sibir:
'in the village of Nizhne-Karelinsk in the northwest high above the
horizon, the peasants saw a body shining very brightly -(too bright for the
naked eye) with a bluish white light. It moved vertically down-wards for
about ten minutes. The body was in the form of a 'pipe' (i.e. cylindrical).
The sky was cloudless, except that low down on the horizon in the direction
in which this glowing body was observed; a small dark cloud was noticed. It
was hot and dry and when the shining body approached the ground it seemed to
be pulverized and in its place a huge cloud of black smoke was formed and a
loud crash, not like thunder, but as if from the fall of large stones, or
from gunfire, was heard. All the buildings shook and at the same time, a
forked tongue of flame broke through the cloud. The old women wept, everyone
thought that the end of the world was approaching."
Exactly what the Bible indicated !
Many other eyewitness testimonies contain similar observances but describe
the shape as a fiery pole,
sheaf rather than the more
technical term "cylinder". It is likely the term pole is more familiar with many
of the nomadic people who witnessed the event than a pipe which is an object
associated with a more settled population. "Sheaf" is an interesting testimony
as it contains both pipes (the wheat or rye) and cylinder (the sheaf).
In regards to the non-ballistic trajectory there is much still being examined
and proposed. A leisurely read throuh the
internet on the subject should
familiarise the audience with this paradox which continues to baffle scientists
to this day.
In his book
"Cosmos" Carl Sagan mentions
large number of tiny diamonds
were found strewn over the Tunguska Site. The Russian Jewelry trade also
prevalence of diamonds and
directly attributes them to the Tunguska Event.
manifestations of God's glory and of
angelic presence were also revealed through eye witness testimony giving an
overwhelming amount of composite evidence which supports not only the true
nature of the Tunguska Event but also the
chronological calculation undertaken to determine the arrival of Jesus
Christ's presence in kingdom power. Please carefully read the information in the
links provided in this paragraph to fully appreciate the abundance of
evidence.To further add controversy to this topic the evidences also indicate
which of the worlds many diverse religions may have actual divine support. Now
the blue touch paper is definitely lit! A thorough search of the internet has
revealed these rationales have never been pursued before.It is not very complex.
Similar to an infantile math student discovering that if a=b and b=c then
certainly a=c. A very straightforward and yet still beautiful logic. It is
amazing to think that the discovery must have eluded some of the most
intelligent theological students and academics for over 100 years.
There is some scripture existing which may explain why.
1 Timothy 6:14
"That thou keep this commandment without spot, unrebukable, until the
appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ:15 Which in his times he shall shew, who
is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings, and Lord of lords;16
Who only hath immortality, dwelling in the light which no man can approach
unto; whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honour and power
everlasting. Amen.17 Charge them that are rich in this world, that they be
not highminded, nor trust in uncertain riches, but in the living God, who
giveth us richly all things to enjoy;18 That they do good, that they be rich
in good works, ready to distribute, willing to communicate;19 Laying up in
store for themselves a good foundation against the time to come, that they
may lay hold on eternal life.20 O Timothy, keep that which is committed to
thy trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science
falsely so called:"
In the verses above it implies the "appearing" and it's "shewing" occur at
different and yet calculated times. Therefore it doesn't matter how simple the
rationale is, the manifestation or "shewing" was not to happen until an
appointed time. This implies the appointed time is now! Verse 15 above indicates
that Jesus will "appear" yet, in verse 16 it says that "no man can see him". It
seems like a contradiction or waste of words. We are admonished just a few
verses further however, to watch for "vain babblings". The only way I can see to
break the contradiction is contained in the same passage where it says that
Jesus is "dwelling in the light which no man can approach". Suggesting that if
Jesus were to appear it would be as an extraordinarily powerful manifestation of
light. The wary may also have noticed in these verses that some scientific
opposition will likely exist. As many scientists make their livelihood out of
investigating the "Tunguska Mystery" a resolution would understandably receive
Matthew Chapter 24:27 is another scripture that mentions Jesus Christs
presence in regard to a manifestation of lightning. In the verses that
immediately follow verse 27, the start of the great tribulation is indicated and
a cause for much anxiety as the Bible states this will be the worst period in
history that men will ever endure (or succumb). If you carefully contemplate the
composite quantity of evidences presented here as well as it's improbability it
should rule out the possibility of coincidence. If the blue touch paper is now
lit and smoldering it raises the expectation of something far more eventful to
shortly come. The 20th century has surpassed all others in the amount of
bloodshed, it makes the dark
ages we learned about in high school history look like a cakewalk. A careful
examination and understanding of the stupendous amount of power released at
Tunguska should make those presently ruling who have made presumptuous decisions
tremble at the thought of now being held accountable for that same bloodshed.
You know who they are. All of those different factions of human society listed
at the start of this article should now stand alerted to rethink their position.
When an extraordinary mystery is solved it usually brings with it an
appreciation for the wisdom of the one who inspired or created it. Ezekiel
announced this would be the case at the time of this mystery's sealing;
"Thou sealest up the sum, full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty".
The Apostle Paul later echoed this same sentiment in the New Testament:
"O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God"
In regards to this most astonishing event,
Carl Sagan in his book "Cosmos"
noted a fundamental dilemma;
"The key point of the Tunguska Event is that there was a tremendous
explosion, a great shock wave, an enormous forest fire, and yet no impact
crater at the site".
For this same reason many other Tunguska Event investigators and experts
suggest in their hypothesis that the body which approached the earth must have
completely disintegrated or evaporated in the great explosion. If this Tunguska
Body (Satan) was resilient enough however, to completely survive the tremendous
explosion, he may still be somewhere in the vicinity of the earth. If this were
true it should then be expected that since the year 1908 and through the rest of
the 20th century there would have been many eyewitness reports of a shining,
roaring, pipe or cylindrical body "flying" in the vicinity of the earth. These
reports should also exist somewhere in the public record.
Is this enough collateral for the next armchair adventure?
The next adventure has been completed with absolutely astonishing evidences

The above rationale does not contradict the scriptures as they do indicate this
will in fact be the temporary demise of Satan and the world we live in. If you
are not familiar with the Bible it should now be explained that Satan once had a
responsible station in heaven where he would be an integral part of the
creation's government. This is revealed in an old testament scripture where
Satan arrives at his heavenly station and directly contends with God.
Here is the scripture:
6Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves
before the LORD, and Satan also came among them. 7And the LORD said unto
Satan, "From whence comest thou?" Then Satan answered the LORD and said,
"From going to and fro on the earth, and from walking up and down upon it."
From the above scripture we can see that Satan could freely leave his
heavenly station to move about on the earth. At this point in history he was
able to return to his heavenly station whenever he wished or when commanded to a
meeting which the above scripture seem to indicate was the nature of his
arriving before the Lord.
As explained in the aforementioned blog entry, Satan was cast down to the
earth immediatrely prior to Jesus becoming King. Satan has now lost his heavenly
station and is no longer allowed to return. Satan was cast down to the earth
along with any rebellious angels. The earth we live on has therefore become a
prison for those who oppose and contend with God. As we are the offspring of
Adam and Eve we are also included in that category. Considering this, it is no
wonder that the planet is in such a terrible state. This condition was
prophesied in the Bible through the following scripture:
What would people conclude if they were in fact to witness Satan flying
about in the vicinity of the earth? According to the Tunguska witness
testimony they should see a shining, roaring, pipe or cylindrical body. It
is therefore very likely they would conclude that they have seen a UFO or
Un-identified Flying Object. There are now many eyewitness testimonies
recorded on the internet with which we can exploit the search engines to
find. With the recent advent of cheap digital cameras and video recorders it
is likely that some actual photographic evidence may exist in our very
recent history. So what kind of search criteria should we use in the web
engines to find the data we are looking for?
9And the great dragon was cast out -- that serpent of old called the
Devil and Satan, who deceiveth the whole world. He was cast out onto the
earth, and his angels were cast out with him. 10And I heard a loud voice
saying in Heaven, "Now have come salvation and strength, and the Kingdom of
our God, and the power of His Christ; for the accuser of our brethren is
cast down, who accused them before our God day and night. 11And they
by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they loved
not their lives unto the death. 12Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that
dwell in them! Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and of the sea!
For the devil has come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth
that he hath but a short time.".
Lets make a list as follows:
To make it easy lets try Google with just
UFO and Cylinder and see
The first in the list is some photographs taken on November 20th 2002 of a
UFO which is startlingly similar to those descriptions given by eyewitness
testimonies almost 100 years earlier in 1908 of the Tunguska Body. Carefully
examining the inset close ups I can see a definite sheaf-like appearance
often indicated in the 1908 testimony. It looks like two pipes or cylinders
joined in the middle. The photographer admits to hearing a sound like a jet
(roaring?) which drew his attention to the object.
Here is the link:
Using different combinations of the above search criteria several other very
profound reports can be discovered on the Internet.
Here is some actual video footage of a shiny cylinder shot in Sonora,
California which looks remarkably similar to the video stills reported in
Portsmouth, Ohio in the above.
This video can be downloaded at the following link:
Now take a look at the astounding video clip #1 on the following web page:

I am convinced that what you are looking at is the Tunguska Cosmic Body
(Satan) who is still alive and well moving "to and fro in the vicinity of
the earth" (Job 1:7). Now I know why it took 10 minutes for the cylinder to
pass through the atmosphere and why there are so many contentions over it's
"ballistic nature" amongst the scientific community.
In my opinion the Tunguska Event is the solution to a much larger mystery.
See the following blog entry for an in depth investigation of why:
