We have followed up Professor Anati's ideas on Har Karkom as being
Mount Sinai and it has led to some additional discoveries:
Peter Tompkins in Secrets of the Great Pyramid, Galahad Books, N.Y.,
1971, writes: "According to Hebrew historians the original Jewish
center of worship was not Jerusalem, but Mount Gerizim, a strictly
geodetic point 4° [4 degrees] east of the main axis of Egypt. It was
only moved to Jerusalem after 980 B.C."
Mount Gerizim = Har Karkom in the Sinai part of ISRAEL
Our discovery is that this clearly means that
Mount Gerizim was Har Karkom (Geri=Kar, Zim=Kom).
As found at Ancient Sources (Greek to English translation):
Eusebius, Onomasticon 64:16-17 (ca. 295 A.D.); Jerome 65:16-17 (ca.
"Gerizim (Deut 11:29), is the mountain on which stood those who
recited the blessings [Jerome mistakenly writes: the curses], near
Mount Gebal of which we spoke above."
Har Karkom in ISRAEL = Mount Sinai
We refer here particularly now to a great pioneer book by
Professor Emmanuel Anati, The Riddle of Mount Sinai:
Archaeological Discoveries at Har Karkom, Edizioni del Centro, Studi Camuni
(a series of monographs on art, archaeology and history).
The book can be obtained from:

Anati - in our opinion correctly, it is HIS discovery -
places the Biblical Mount Sinai at Har Karkom
in the NORTH of the Sinai Peninsula and not SOUTH
(as the mainstream currently and erroneously believes).
Har Karkom is full of megaliths and rock drawings. Har Karkom is
just south of the major ancient trails across Sinai, whereas the
South of Mount Sinai would have been next to impossible in ancient
times for a large number of people to reach on foot, as Exodus
ANCIENT NEOLITHIC SURVEY OF THE ANCIENT NEAR EAST including EGYPT
This knowledge gives us the key to the ancient Neolithic survey of
this region and shows us clearly that the present location of Mount
Gerizim and Mount Gebal as set by mainstream scholars is totally
false, being set simply based on guesswork at the Shomron Valley.
But, in fact, Har Kar-kom = Geri-zim.
This was the ancient Hebrew holy place on Sinai.
MOUNT GEBAL = JABAL YU ALLIQ in the Sinai part of EGYPT
The "neighboring" Mount Gebal - as we shall show below - is Jabal Yu
Alliq (highest peak in North Sinai) in spite of the fact that
neighboring Jabal 'Urayfan Naqah is on the same horizontal survey
line as Har Karkom and Petra and might be thought to be the
neighboring Gebal, which is not so. Jabal 'Urayfan Naqah and Petra
are even equidistant from Har Karkom at a latitude of about 30°20'
but this relates to a later era.
QUSAYR AD DAFFAH, LIBYA
A horizontal line extends to the West to Jabal Yu Alliq in Sinai and
Qusayr ad-Daffah (today deserted ruins) in Libya, just on the edge
of the modern border to Egypt. Qasr in Arabic means "castle,
fortification". Qusayr ad-Daffah marked the ancient Neolithic
Western border to Libya.
TOBRUK, LIBYA - AGOZA, CHAD - MEROE, SUDAN
From Qusayr ad-Daffah there is then an ancient survey line northward
to Tobruk and Bi'r al-Uzam and southward to Agoza (today deserted
ruins), just south of the current four-country border corner of
Egypt, Libya, Chad and the Sudan. Agoza was the actual ancient
The survey line to the East from Tobruk
runs at an angle of 110° to Jabal Yu Alliq and Har Karkom.
The survey line to the East from Agoza
runs at an angle of 110° to Meroe.
Two lines run to the North from Meroe,
one line perpendicularly up to Jabal Yu Alliq
(forming a surveyor's parallelogram with Tobruk, Agoza, and Meroe)
and the other line running North to Har Karkom.
THE ANCIENT SURVEYOR'S ARK (ARC)
The distance between Jabal Yu Alliq and Har Karkom represent
"the arc" of the distance "lost" due to the curvature of the Earth.
Using the map website WayHoo http://www.wayhoo.com/ we can find the
latitudes and longitudes of these locations with geographic
positioning results that persuasively confirm the above survey
analysis. Agoza is at 23.75°E 18.5°N, Meroe is at 33.75°E 17°N, i.e.
EXACTLY 10 degrees longitude apart, while Qusayr ad Daffah is at 24°
E 30.33°N, Tobruk at 24°E 32°N, Jabal Yu Alliq at 33.5°E 30°N and
Har Karkom at 34.75°E 30°N.
The actual positional data are:
Agoza, Chad 18.50000 N, 23.75000 E
Meroe, Sudan 16.93833 N, 33.74722 E
Qusayr ad Daffah, Libya 30.33333 N, 23.90000 E
Tobruk, Libya 32.06667 N, 24.01667 E
Jabal Yu 'alliq, Egypt 30.37528 N, 33.50500 E
Har Karkom, Israel 30.28750 N, 34.74250 E
MEASURE OF THE CIRCUMFERENCE OF THE EARTH
The longitudinal difference of this "The Arc" (more on "The Ark"
below) between Har Karkom and Jabal Yu Alliq is about 1.25 degrees
which reflects the diminishment in the circumference of the earth
for the intended difference in longitude between Har Karkom and
Meroe, i.e. about 13.5°. Hence the difference in the circumference
of the earth at Har Karkom and Jabal Yu Alliq from its circumference
at Meroe for 10 degrees of longitude between Meroe and Agoza is thus
36 x 1.25 = 45 degrees or 1/8 of the circumference of the earth less
than at Meroe.
MOUNT GERZIM AND MOUNT GEBAL in BIBLICAL SOURCES
This ancient "Ark" is mentioned in ancient Hebrew sources.
As written at Har Gerizim and Ayval:
"The twin peaks of Mount Gerizim and Mount Ebal stand above the
Shomron Valley.... [note by LexiLine Journal: that location is the
mainstream idea and simply false.]
Six Tribes of the Bnai Yisroel stood by Mount Gerizim and six Tribes
stood by Mount Ayval. The Ahron HaKodesh (Holy Ark) was set between
the mountains.... [* see asterisk below]
Moshe Rabbaynu commanded the Bnai Yisroel that as soon as they
crossed the Yarden (Jordan) River [note by LexiLine Journal - this
was actually the Wadi el Jayb, i.e. the "River Jordan" at the other
end of the Dead Sea. Of course, this occurred much later than the
pyramids, at the time of Moses, which as we have written elsewhere,
was the 13th Pharaonic dynasty and not the chronology currently
assigned to Exodus.] they were to take twelve stones from the river
bed and build a Mizbayach on top of Mount Ayval. They were to
plaster over the twelve stones and carve into the plaster the words
of the Torah in all seventy languages. (Deut. 27:1-26)
* [Note by LexiLine Journal - In our opinion, that
reference is to the division of the heavens into twelve spheres.
