The Great Catastrophe did not occur until the fourteenth year of the reign of Hezekiah, when his capital was almost on the verge of utter
destruction at the hands of a vast overseas invading host called Gog and Magog, and also including Assyrians, Persians and others. At that
critical hour, when the Great Catastrophe struck the “Isle”, as Isiah (20:6) says, with nearly 20,000 besiegers awaiting the moment to loot
the city, Jerusalem was saved by what indeed looks like a miracle. As a part of the cometary crash, a meteor struck the Mount of Olives and
split part of it in two - which may be viewed to this day as Samson's Ribs on Arthur's Seat, the original Mount. It occasioned in Jerusalem
itself a most destructive earthquake, accompanied as usual on such occasions in proximity to the sea, by a tidal wave and great floods.
Jerusalem, however, survived, and providentially the disaster saved the city and nation, for simultaneously a 'blast', as Isaiah himself
describes it, destroyed the bulk of the invading army whose site of destruction may be inspected to this day not very far from Edinburgh.
The enemy survivors - nominally led by Sennacherib, the Assyrian King, but actually by a mysterious Rabshakeh, the law-giver to the Sakai
or Saxons - fled panic-stricken to their own country, their losses being prodigious and all being panic-stricken like the rest of the world at
this momentous time.
In Britain the Key to World History, I have produced all available evidence to show that Rabshakeh was no other than Moses, that
remarkable genius, whose extraordinary and sinister career has never yet been compiled from other than Biblical sources. Yet there is little
doubt but that he was known variously as Zalmoxis, Zoroaster, Odin, and in a more deceptive setting as Silenus, the 'teacher' of the
'drunken' deity Dionysus, the same as Jehovah, 'Consuming Fire'.
What was the fate of Rabshakeh history does not relate, but there is reason to believe, from veiled Biblical allusions to 'Gog', that it related
to him, and that he met his fate with the rest of that great host. Whether or not, the huge invading armies melted away, and the Island,
whether it be called Atlantis or Britain, or “this isle” - Isiah's description - lay in an appalling state, vast regions destroyed by earthquake,
and piled up with contorted and striated masses of rock, burning with inextinguishable fires, or flooded by the Ocean. The eastern parts
escaped very lightly compared to the west, where lay the original land of Egypt, or Mizraim. The dramatic description given by Ezekiel of
their fate is, as usual in such matters, in the form of post facto phrasing, and relates to Scotland, the Hebrides, parts of Ireland, Wales and
Western England, the latter in less degree:
“And the land of Egypt (Wales) shall be desolate and waste … from the Tower of Syene (Seveneh) even unto the border of Ethiopia. No foot
of man shall pass through it, nor foot of beast … neither shall it be inhabited 40 years. And I will scatter the Egyptians among the nations.
And I will make the land of Egypt desolate among the countries that are desolate, and her cities … shall be desolate 40 years.” (Ezekiel 29:9-
Moses was the man who, before the Great Catastrophe, set the world ablaze either for his own ambitious ends or out of personal hatred of
the Pharaoh of his own period. He organised uprisings in Egypt, fled for his life to Ur-of-the-Chaldees - then the rival power of the Pharaoh
who had prepared for him most powerful armaments, which later proved inferior to those engineered by the active genius of Moses. The
period leading up to the Flood Epoch was a time when firearms ('serpent-rods') and greater destructive weapons had reached a high pitch
of efficiency. It was the main cause why the Deity was supposed to have intended to destroy the world. After the Great Catastrophe the
secret of firearms was lost, and rediscovered only after many centuries.
At Ur, the seat of the Arch Magus, the High Ram, Moses proceeded to perfect the designs of Dionysus, and inveigled for his purposes other
men and arms. He was known as Zalmoxis among the Goths, and as Zoroaster in Persia (probably now South Russia). The Persians were
persuaded to assist him to build the armaments of his god, 'Consuming Fire'. Lastly he became famed in Northern Europe as Odin or Votan.
Finally, constructing enormous forces, powerfully-armed, he made war on Egypt and the lands of the West, including Jerusalem. Moses,
indeed, was the entire inspiration and the active leader of the great invasion of Atlantis, of which the aged priest of Sais spoke.
The main purpose of giving these details is to explain the confusion of chronology, which has a direct bearing on this present work, as the
course of true history. Moses did live at the time of the Plagues of Egypt - all forerunners of the presence of the cometary collapse as that
body - or bodies - traversed the heavens. in the region of the Earth. The Great Catastrophe occurred circa 1322 BC, as proved by the
Sothic Cycle, the only certain means of ascertaining time based on the quadratures of the star Sirius.
The period of Moses, although set in its true position as regards the Plagues of Egypt and the Pharaoh whom he deified, is altogether at
variance with the history of the Judaeans and others in the order given in the Old Testament. Actually, all the early history of Israel had
happened long before Moses' period, for as Rabshakeh he was contemporaneous with Hezekiah, when the Bible lands were invaded by
Sennacherib, in which, as stated, Rabshakeh was the leading spirit.
How did this error or deception come about? The explanation is that the Bible history of the Jews - which contains nothing in the least
sacred to Christianity - is that Moses became subsequently elevated by the Jewish priesthood for their own purposes as their great
prophet and patriarch, when they adopted his doctrines. Yet Jerusalem had never heard of him or his doctrines until in the reign of Josiah,
when it was burst upon that credulous monarch by ambitious priests for the first time. (II Kings 2, 23: 3-13; II Chronicles 34: 14-21) When
later the Old Testament came to be first compiled, at the time of the Babylonian Captivity - by Ezra and his assistants, who created
Judasim - past chronology was tampered with recklessly in order to convey to the people of Judah that Moses had been their divine
prophet who made them the Deity's “chosen people” ages before, thus giving his ordinances the necessary antiquity - besides claiming
that their past kings had been defeated or overthrown because they had run after gods other than Moses' Jehovah. Actually, as Rabshakeh,
he had lived less than a century and a half before Ezra and his scribes glorified him as their prophet. Yet we should not lose sight of the
power of Odinism.
