    Exclamation Gog and Magog


    Ancient Lydia in Anatolia is identified with Magog by some biblical scholars. Others place Magog between the Euxine and Caspian seas in central Asia. If the first hypothesis is correct, Lydia may be viewed as a cultural type of a population group characterized by Y-DNA types R1a and R1b. Magog may then encompass all of the people under this cultural and genetic umbrella stretching from southern central Asia to the Caucasus, and across Anatolia all the way to the Atlantic coast of Europe where type R1b is most prevalent.

    In ancient Hispania, settlers of this type from the east took refuge within the Peninsula from the impending Ice Age. This suggests a breeding advantage over the earlier "Cro-Magnon" men, because the earlier paternal DNA type is found infrequently whereas the earlier maternal DNA type is very prevalent today. The Basque language today probably derives from the earlier population, with even a few Neanderthal words thrown in, because children first learn to speak at their mother's knee, and the fathers would have been out hunting and fishing most of the time during the formative years.

    What lesson can we take from all of this? The picture above is from a Spanish mosaic portraying Herakles, one of the Greek heroes of the Trojan war, reduced to subservience for one year to the Lydian queen Omphale as a penalty for his "inadvertent murder" of Iphitos, at the command of the Delphic Oracle Xenoclea, a female deity. Herakles' angry outburst leading to his enslavement prefigures the culture of death in the modern world. Omphale is pictured as being naked which represents the way in which pornography enslaves the unwary. She is wielding a club which represents a primitive form of pagan feminism prefiguring New Age feminism today.

    A warning is given to Lydia's capital city Sardis in the Book of Revelation. Some of the righteous citizens persevere to the end and receive their eternal reward.

    It was my thought that the word was originally Ha Ma Gog.
    Or King of the Gog?

    Hmmm.....Kind of Irrelevant to Non-Christians, isn't it.
    Isn't the End of the World foretold or predicted in the bible preceded by the great Battle between Gog and Magog?

    Many of us do not believe the bible is historical, at all. To us it's a book of Myths, Legends and allegorical tales, meant to focus History on the jewish people and adopted by the christians as a Holy Book.
