Before the Delusion: Secret Vatican Files of the Pyramids and Stonehenge is an excellent book that changes nearly everything you thought you knew about human history and the origin of religion, in particular Christianity and Judaism.
From a wide range of ancient literature and archaeological reports, Gleeson has explored our pagan history - our 'real' history before it was Christianised, before it was misunderstood, mistranslated, and just plain distorted to serve the interests of the Church. He has recovered the fragments of factual history from a surprising variety of sources - the Egyptian Pyramid Texts, the Hebrew Old Testament, the Greek myths, the Celtic Mabinogion, Grimm's Household Tales, and modern-era archaeological reports - and cleverly rewoven these threads into a coherent and persuasive picture of 'alternative' history. Actually our real history.
There are of course numerous books that have been written about theology and what those pyramids in Egypt and the Ziggurat temples in Iraq and Iran were for; the same for the megalithic structures like Stonehenge found in England. You read these interesting books but at the end you are often left with a question mark, wondering if it could be possible at all. Is it not remarkable that these huge structures and why and how they were built still remain a mystery today?
Thirty percent of Before the Delusion (The Temple Publications, UK), is all the author's references and the bibliography; it is extensively substantiated with evidence that can be found on the Internet. It is also a Dan Brownish novel like Da Vinci Code but everything in the background is true. The novel is a device to alleviate what could have been a dry subject. I don't intend to tease anyone, I will tell you what the book is about, probably inviting ironic comments in the process but bear with me, and I will follow with an interview with Bill Gleeson.
Essentially if you read carefully the ancient texts and mythology you will find that it corresponds to what can be deciphered on the ground with all the megalithic structures found all over Britain, including also Ireland, Scotland, and France. Far from being stories of heroes on a sea voyage, knights in armor fighting armies, you can discover that the main thread is instead a celestial history of our solar system recording the planet formations and collision impacts for thousands of years.
The whole puzzle of the megalithic rocks starts with Carnac in France where on the ground you can see the design of comet trails made of multiple stones. This is the starting point of the journey of the comet originating from the Vela constellation (according to the site at Woodhenge near Stonehenge) that will extend to several planets of our solar system including: Newgrange in Ireland (Saturn and Uranus), Anglesey island (Neptune), the Hebrides and Orkney islands in Scotland (asteroid belt), Montmartre in Paris (Mont Mercury), Mont Saint-Michel in Normandy (Jupiter), Salisbury (Mars), Hatfield barrows (Earth), Marlborough (Venus), White Horse (Mercury), and Silbury Hill/Avebury (Sun).
Other sites tell the story of other collision impacts, planet formations, and constellations, and show the trajectory of the comet. Numerous smaller stones around such sites correspond to the atomic number or atomic mass of elements of the periodic table. For example the 56 peripheral 'Aubrey Holes' at Stonehenge indicate iron, probably referencing the composition of an ironstone meteorite (the iron-hearted hero of Greek myths). The post holes of Woodhenge are arranged in a pattern of 64+93=157, which is the atomic structure of gadolinium [64 P, 93 N, atomic mass = 157] characterising a highly magnetic neutron star, which is the typical remnant of a supernova.
The early configuration of the Stonehenge circle is the key, it is a map that shows us where the comet or asteroid fell on Earth 12,000 years ago. The two earth mounds with holes at their peak at the periphery of the circle correspond to the highest volcanic craters on their respective coasts: Mount Chimborazo in Peru and Mount Fuji on Honshu Island. The two main stones at the periphery correspond to the highest mountains on the Pacific Rim: Mount Whitney, North of Los Angeles, and Mount Pucak Jaya in Papua, Indonesia.
The Stonehenge middle stone also known as the Slaughter stone marks where the comet fell on Earth (the intersection of these four highest points): exactly on the other side of the planet in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. This is evidenced by the high Rockies and mountains all around the Pacific Rim and the central rebound of the impact forming the Hawaiian Islands. Hawaii's tallest mountain, Mauna Kea, is the highest on Earth when considering 4205 meters above water and 5000 meters below.
That same story can be followed and compared with the Greek mythology in the Iliad and Odyssey of Homer and Aeneid from Virgil, also in the King Arthur's tales and even children's tales like Hansel and Gretel (Mercury and Venus) and Sleeping Beauty (Earth). Even the Old Testament tells parts of this epic celestial story.
The people who built this elaborate puzzle out of megalithic structures in Europe are the same who built the pyramids and the Ziggurat temples. They were the Lords of Ur, also known as the antediluvian Kings (from before the flood), who suddenly appeared in Sumeria (Iraq) before 3000 years BC. They are referenced in many biblical texts, especially before Christianity erased any mention of these Lords (plural) to replace them with the one God. However the story remains when you consider more direct and early translations of these texts.
The Lords of Ur were giants (always represented at least twice bigger than normal humans) who could live a thousand years, although they gradually lived younger due to interbreeding with normal humans and unhealthy radiation. They were also the forefathers of the Israelites. Their well-known descendants include Adam, Eve, Abraham, Moses, David, Solomon, and Jesus Christ.
