Copali is also said to be a Nahuatl word meaning “incense,” as well and this is not so either, Copali is the sap or resin that comes from the Copal tree that man uses for incense and other things. The earliest know reference to the
Why the sermon?
Legends have a way of being twisted into conjecture and as a result become legends themselves such as the Legend of Moctezuma instructing 2000 of his warriors to haul hoards of Gold back to their ancient homeland of Aztlan, and it simply didn't happen and there is no foundation to this concocted legend, HOWEVER, there are some truths within, as the fleeing Aztec DID return that which was highly regarded by them, It just wasn’t gold and silver as you have been led to believe…
It is my intention to show that when I research the things which I write about, that it is from the most original resource material available, not wiki or other internet resources which are often speculative, unreliable, intentionally misleading and I might add, not true in the slightest.
With the forgoing said, I want to bring your attention to the many maps of the 15th and 16th century, which show a definite lake situated at the unmistakable place of the Uinta Basin of Utah. Many suppose the
Tontonteac or should I say it’s location is ancient in that it is the very location of the FIRST landing or city on this continent since the great flood of the Bible, it was first known as Anahuac of the most ancient Aztec. The other cities such as Abacus nuc
A portion of the Granata Nova Map of 1597 by Cornelis Wytfliet
Those who made these maps such as Herman Moll and publisher Cornelis van Wytfliet, were merely operating on fragments of information that they had gleaned from the Royal families they represented and from fragmented information that the Royal families of that country had kept since ancient times before falling out of good graces with the Roman Empire, and/or England. England and/or the Roman Empire are those who had the majority of the information dating back to the days of King David and King Solomon and in the past had shared parts with Wales, Scotland, Prussia, France, Spain and other countries of the British Isles through the Royal ties. However by the time
A portion of the Moll Map of 1720
The above Moll map escaped my view for some time largely because of the river shown exiting to the east, however on closer examination, it would seem that it is the same lake the Spanish were looking for not only because of the shape, but its location on the map. It is 50 miles from
On the Moll map Moll makes it clear that many parts of his map is taken from ”Original” draughts of Blackmore and Berisford, and others never before published. It would seem it was common for Cartographers of the day to glean as much information from other maps which makes sense as a practice. The Piri Reis map of 1513 when discovered showed a great deal of accuracy in the new world, and an ICE FREE
IN 1929, A GROUP OF HISTORIANS found an amazing map drawn on a gazelle skin. Research showed that it was a genuine document drawn in 1513 by Piri Reis, a famous admiral of the Turkish fleet in the sixteenth century. His passion was cartography.
Piri Reis high rank within the Turkish navy allowed him to have a privileged access to the Imperial Library of
Where are these maps today?
Looking at the Spanish Granta Nova map of 1597 and the French Moll map of 1715, it would appear the Spanish were leading in the amount of information the two had. I say this because of the uncanny resemblance of the
In the Uinta Basin of Utah, it is a well known geological fact that nearly the entire eastern half of Utah was covered by and ancient ocean, and it is a well known fact that after this ocean had dispersed, a lake remained of which geologists call Lake Uinta and it is well know the boundaries of it due to the fossil ripples of sand that clearly shows its boundaries, this occurs at the elevation of approximately 6000 feet and down to its lower levels of about 5500 feet. The problem is, science tells us that this lake has not existed for 33 million years.
The two following images are the ancient lake according to 30 minute USGS shading techniques used from the All Topo Map program and overlayed onto Google Earth, in other words the boundaries you see in the Google Earth images are quite accurate. The first is showing the ancient lake boundaries at a lower level of about 5500 feet and compared to the Granata map.
The 33 million year old
How could this be?
The following image is the same 33 million year old lake highlighted at 6000 feet and shown compared to the French Moll Map of 1720, keep in mind it is very clear in the document of Baron de Lahonton’s 1688 Journey of the Long River, that he never made it to the Lake he was looking for, so how is it that the map maker got so lucky? Who was it that seen the lake and apparently documented it long before Lahonton’s Journey?
