Atlas or Iapetus?

Atlas from New York
Is the statue of Atlas with the globe on his back referring to the son of Iapetus named Atlas or is it actually referring to Iapetus (the father of Prometheus, Atlas, and other children)?  I believe it is the father of Prometheus, Iapetus who was also referred to as Atlas, the brother of Cronus, in the ancient writings.  He is credited with coming up with the idea of the sphere.

After the death of Hyperion, the myth relates the kingdom was divided among the sons of Uranus, the most renowned of whom were Atlas and Cronus. Of the sons Atlas received as his part the regions of the coast of the ocean, and he not only gave the name of Atlantians to his people but likewise called the greatest mountain in the land Atlas. They also say that he perfected the science of astrology and was the first to publish to mankind the doctrine of the sphere; and was for this reason that the idea was held that the entire heavens were supported upon the shoulders of Atlas, the myth darkly hinting in this way at his discovery and description of the sphere.  - Diodorus Siculus, Library of History, Book 2.

I believe he is the father of Prometheus and is often shown with him even though there was also a son named Atlas who was killed by Zeus.

Ground Zero, Rockefeller Center, United Nations, and more in New York

I recently went to New York on a vacation/research trip.  I took a lot of pictures and video and will be spending some time to put them together.  For now, I want to post some of the pictures and my thoughts.

The energy of New York is high and can be felt.  The weather was perfect and the people were very happy and polite during my visit.  I went to see certain sites due to the history and symbolism that is present in the old city.  I found what I was looking for.  Here are some of the famous places of New York:

Me with a very interesting Statue of Liberty

Outside of Grand Central Station

Inside the Rockefeller Center

Prometheus at the Rockefeller Café


Inside the Security Council at the United Nations

All from the United Nations which has a goal to disarm the world.  The irony of UN soldiers who have no authority to enforce anything using a gun while the United Nations wishes to disarm the average person, did not escape me.
The Empire State Building

Freedom Tower

Ground Zero Memorial - the water was calming and that is probably one of the reasons behind the design besides that of a cleanser.

Ground Zero Memorial

Outside of St. John's Cathedral (I will be posting a video and more on this amazing gothic church).

Children's Garden

Bridge at Central Park

Statue of Liberty on Liberty Island next to Ellis Island

From the Intrepid Museum (more to come on this museum)

Letter to The Library Kids Fans

Dear Library Kids and Hidden Human Story Fans,

I started this journey really since I was ten years old.  When I visited a cave with my family (as an adult) in Texas around 2005 an idea was born in my mind.  That idea blossomed into The Library Kids series.  The purpose of my books was not only to entertain, but to educate children and adults about history, mythology, and geography. 

I created this blog and several other websites to be a resource that works in conjunction with my books.  I have tried to keep this blog, family and child friendly while moving more adult-oriented in-depth looks at history and mythology to my other blog (

I have worked with schools, the boy scouts, librarians, and other organizations to provide educational lectures and introduce them to my work, mostly at no cost to them.  I have tried hard to provide some really good material that is known and some not so well known to intrigue young and older minds.

It was my goal to have my books and blogs and websites work in conjunction to educate and entertain and be a resource for the average person wishing to learn and for teachers and other educators to use as a resource.  This is a new concept that I have introduced for the middle grade market.  I was even investigating and working on a project to make either animated or non-animated movies to work in conjunction with my original vision.

As of late, something has come to my attention that now requires me to seek advice and to make sure that I am not being copyright infringed on.  I am not happy about this whole situation but it is something I must do.  I am never giving up on my vision and will not be prevented from seeing this Library Kids project and the vision I have for the Hidden Human Story series from maturing to full fruition.  For those that have met me in person, those that have listened to my presentations at a school or library or conference, I hope that you remember me and that I was the first to come up with this concept for the middle grade audience as well as for adults.  No one else had done so at the time, I began.

I have since found some well hidden information about our past and have presented that material in my Hidden Human Story series and websites. I was also the first to come up with this information and am the only one currently providing it to the public.  I have contacted several media outlets to see if they were interested in interviews to learn more about this material, but most will not touch my work at this time.

I hope that those who have been following my research and work, truly appreciate the time, money, and effort that I have put into my book series, blogs, facebook pages, youtube videos, and the entire educational concept that I have designed to provide this information.  Thank you.

Loki was Called The Accuser

A depiction of Lokasenna (1895) by Lorenz Frølich (public domain)
Loki was expelled from the Aesir due to the death of Balder and the murder of a god named Fimageng by Loki.  A poem called the Lokasenna describes how he entered a banquet hall and confronted all of the gods as being guilty of something.  He is asked to leave and threatened by Thor.  Finally he leaves and hides in a river as a salmon.  Finally the gods find him, and chain him in a cave to be tortured by the venom of a snake for eternity.
Here are some passages from this poem from the Poetic Edda:
Loki spoke:
"Remember Othin, in olden days
That we both our blood have mixed;
then didst thou promise no ale to pour,
Unless it were brought for us both."
Othin spake:
"Stand forth then, Vithar, and let the wolf's father
Find a seat at our feast;
Lest evil should Loki speak aloud
Here within Aegir's hall."
Then Vithar arose and poured drink for Loki; but before he drank he spoke to the gods:
"Hail to you gods! ye goddesses, hail!
Hail to the holy throng!
Save for the god who yonder sits,
Bragi there on the bench."
Loki continues on making accusations about each god and goddesses and taunting them with his insults.  This is why he is called the accuser.  Finally, Thor threatens him with his hammer, Mjollnir.
Then came Thor forth, and spake:
"Unmanly one, cease, or the mighty hammer,
Mjollnir, shall close thy mouth;
Thy shoulder-cliff shall I cleave from they neck,
And so shall thy life be lost."
Finally Loki leaves and hides in Franang's waterfall, but is found and bound.  He tries so hard to escape that he causes earthquakes.
The title of "accuser" has been given to Satan.  My theory is that Loki is the same as Satan and his other name Lucifer.  He is hated by God Odin-Zeus for his part in the murder of Dionysus-Osiris-Balder.  This story is the Nordic way of telling the story in poetic form and with imagery that is easy to remember and pass on to future generations in the guise of mythology.

The new world that rises after Ragnarök, as described in Völuspá (depiction by Emil Doepler) (public domain)

Ragnarok is the predicted scenario for the End of the Age.  Did Ragnarok happen?  In a sense it did as ages have come and gone.  But is Ragnarok more symbolic and descriptive of the "human condition" and how populations go through phases of rises and falls and the Earth ages that have come and gone?  This is something I am pondering. The deaths of Odin, Freyr, and Freyja are already described as peaceful and occurring in Sweden per the Heimskringla.   But the idea of rising water is reminiscent of the great flood and the ongoing personality conflicts of the gods and goddesses are touched on in Ragnarok.  The idea of destructions by fire and water that create new Earth ages are also part of Ragnarok.  Lastly, the idea of reincarnation is also covered.   Here is the description of the Nordic Ragnarok from Wikipedia:

In Norse mythology, Ragnarök is a series of future events, including a great battle foretold to ultimately result in the death of a number of major figures (including the gods Odin, Thor, Týr, Freyr, Heimdallr, and Loki), the occurrence of various natural disasters, and the subsequent submersion of the world in water. Afterward, the world will resurface anew and fertile, the surviving and returning gods will meet, and the world will be repopulated by two human survivors. Ragnarök is an important event in the Norse canon, and has been the subject of scholarly discourse and theory.

Chapter 53 begins with Gangleri asking if any of the gods will survive, and if there will be anything left of the earth or the sky. High responds that the earth will appear once more from the sea, beautiful and green, where self-sown crops grow. The field Iðavöllr exists where Asgard once was, and, there, untouched by Surtr's flames, Víðarr and Váli reside. Now possessing their father's hammer Mjolnir, Thor's sons Móði and Magni will meet them there, and, coming from Hel, Baldr, and Höðr also arrive. Together, they all sit and recount memories, later finding the gold game pieces the Æsir once owned. Völuspá stanza 51 is then quoted.
High reveals that two humans, Líf and Lífþrasir, will have also survived the destruction by hiding in the wood Hoddmímis holt. These two survivors consume the morning dew for sustenance, and from their descendants the world will be repopulated. Vafþrúðnismál stanza 45 is then quoted. The personified sun, Sól, will have a daughter at least as beautiful as she, and this daughter and this daughter will follow the same path as her mother. Vafþrúðnismál stanza 47 is quoted, and so ends the foretelling of Ragnarök in Gylfaginning.[37]

Thor's Hammer

Ah, what a lovely maid it is! (1902) by Elmer Boyd Smith. (public domain)

Thor had a mighty hammer named,  Mjöllnir. One day the giant, Þrymr, stole the hammer and promised to exchange it for the price of allowing Freyja to be his wife.  The god Heimdallr comes up with a plan when Freyja refuses.  He had Thor dress up as a woman in a bridal's gown and cover his face and pretend to be Freyja to get the hammer back. 

Loki goes along with Thor and pretends to be Freyja's maid.  After the hammer was retrieved, Thor revealed himself to the giant.  He takes the hammer and beats the giant and all of the Jotnar.

Again, Thor is the same as the Greek Heracles and Loki is the same as the Greek Prometheus.

The Death of Balder

Loki and Sigyn (1863) by Mårten Eskil Winge (public domain)

It is said that nothing could harm Balder except for one thing, mistletoe.  One day, Balder played a game where he let men shoot arrows and throw things at him, since none would harm him.  Then Loki, being the trickster her was, made an arrow of mistletoe and got the blind got Hoder to shoot it at Balder.  It killed him.

Hodr was killed for this act and Loki was blamed for the death of Balder and punished by being chained in a cave where a snake drips burning venom on him.  His wife Sigyn, tries to catch the venom in a bowl before it burns Loki, but can't always catch it because she has to empty the bowl eventually.

This tale of the death of Balder, is the Nordic version of the death and murder of Dionysus-Osiris by Prometheus-Set and the other conspirators.

Nordic Gods and Goddesses Frigg, Thor, Tyr, Balder, Loki, and Hermoor

A depiction of Odin and Frigg (1895) by Lorenz Frølich (public domain)

Frigg is the wife of Odin-Zeus and is the Greek Hera.

Thor's Battle Against the Jötnar (1872) by Mårten Eskil Winge (public domain)

Thor is a powerful warrior and is the Greek Heracles.

Tyr is also a God of War and is the Greek Ares.

Tyr sacrifices his arm to Fenrir in a 1911 illustration by John Bauer. (public domain)

Loki is a trickster God and is responsible for the death of Balder.  He is the Greek Prometheus.

Loki, from an 18th-century Icelandic manuscript (public domain)

Balder is the murdered son of Odin who died by the trickery of Loki.  He is the Greek Dionysus.

Baldr's Death" (1817) by Christoffer Wilhelm Eckersberg.(public domain)

Hermóðr rides to Hel on Sleipnir. He meets Hel and Baldr. From the 18th century Icelandic manuscript NKS 1867 4to. (public domain)

Hermoor is the messenger of Odin and he is the Greek Hermes.

I have shown through my Mythological Unification Theory that as with other mythologies, the Nordic Gods and Goddesses (referred to as originally from Asia and not Nordic by Snorri Sturluson's Heimskringla) are the same as the Cronide family and Greek god/goddess equivalents.

Freya is the Greek Artemis

Freya (1882) by Carl Emil Doepler (public domain)

After Odin-Zeus died and King Njord died, Frey-Apollo took over as king.  He took ill and his priests lied to the Swedes when he died.  They put him in a burial mound and pretended he was alive for three years.  After the Swedes found out he was dead, the now married Freyja-Artemis continued the rituals until she died.  Since the Swedes had good crop yields, they attributed it to the presence of Frey's body in the mound.  It was probably more likely due to the farming techniques taught to the Swedes by the Cronides.  Here is what Snorri Sturluson wrote:

Frey took sick; and when the sickness gained on him, his follower hit upon a plan to let few men see him, and they threw up a great burial mound with a door and three windows.  And when Frey was dead they carried him secretly into the mound and told the Swedes that he was still alive, and kept him there for three years.  But all the tribute they poured into the mound- gold by one window, silver by another, and copper coin by the third.  Thus good seasons and peace endured.

Freya kept up the sacrifices for she was the only one among the godheads who survived.  Therefor she became most famous, so that all women of rank came to be called by her name.  They are now called fruvur ["ladies"].  thus everyone who is a mistress over her property is called Freya, and husfreya ["lady of the house"] one who owns an estate.

Freya was rather fickle-minded.  Her husband was called Oth and her daughters, Hnoss and Gersimi.  They were very beautiful, and we give their names to our most precious possessions.

When all Swedes knew that Frey was dead but that good seasons and peace still prevailed, they believed this would be the case so long as Frey was in Sweden; and so they would not burn him and called him the God of the World and sacrificed to him ever after for good harvests and peace.
Snorri Sturluson, Heimskringla, page 14.

Odin's Death and Cremation and the Location of Valhalla

"Walhalla" (1896) by Max Bruckner.(public domain)

Per Snorri Sturluson:

Othin died in his bed in Sweden.  But when he felt death approaching he had himself marked with the point of a spear, and he declared as his own all men who fell in battle.  He said he was about to depart to the abode of the gods and would there welcome his friends.  So then the Swedes believed that he had gone to the old Asgarth and would live there forever.  Then the belief in Othin arose anew, and they called on him.  Often, the Swedes thought, he revealed himself before great battles were fought, when he would give victory to some and invite others to come to his abode.  Both fates seemed good to them.

Othin was burned after his death, and this burning on the pyre of his body took place with great splendor.  It was people's belief that the higher the smoke rose into the sky, the more elevated in heaven would he be who was cremated: and [therefore] a man [was considered] the nobler, the more possession were burned with him.

After him, Njorth of Noatun took power among the Swedes and continued the sacrifices....

- Snorri Sturuluson, The Heimskringla , page 13.

I believe the old Asgarth was the home of Zeus in Crete and also known as Valhalla.

The War Between the Aesir and the Vanir

Óðinn with Mímir's body, illustration by Georg Pauli (1893)
 (public domain)

The Vanir were the Nordic people living in Northern Europe.  They knew about all the land on the planet including America because they travelled with their boats.  Some called Europe, Enea.   The Aesir was the Cronide family and their capital was Asgard or Asgarth.  I am still debating whether this was Zeus-Odin's home in Crete or Mt. Olympus since the Asgard was eventually destroyed.

The war between the Vanir and Aesir went on for a long time and both sides could not defeat the other.  Finally, they made a truce and people were exchanged.  Njordr and his wife and children Freyr and Freyja were given to Odin-Zeus.  Another wise man named Kvasir was given to the Aesir.

In exchange, the Aesir gave the Vanir a tall handsome man named Hoenir.  Another wise man named Mimir was given to the Vanir.  When the Vanir figured out that Hoenir was not that smart and needed the council of Mimir to make decisions, they beheaded Mimir and sent his head back to Odin-Zeus.  Here is what Snorri Sturluson wrote:

Then the Vanir suspected that the Aesir had defrauded them in the exchange of hostages.  Then they seized Mimir and beheaded him and sent the head to the Aesir.  Othin took it  and embalmed it with herbs so that it would not rot, and spoke charms over it, giving it magic power so that it would answer him and tell him many occult things. - Snorri Sturluson - Heimskringla - page 8.

The saga continues on with Freyja teaching the Aesir magic and the tales of Odin travelling for many years.

Then he set his brothers Ve and Villi over Asgarth, but he himself and all diar, and many other people, departed.  First he journeyed west to Garthariki [Russia], and then south, to Saxland [Northwestern Germany].  He had many sons.  He took possession of lands far and wide in Saxland and set his sons to defend these lands.  Then he journeyed north to the sea and fixed his abode on an island.  That place is now called Othinsey [Othin's Island], on the island of Funen. - Snorri Sturluson - Heimskringla - page 9.

Odin went to Northeastern Europe and taught the people many skills.  He was said to be handsome and charming but in war absolutely merciless.  He spoke in rhymes and established the Beserker rage.

Odin was also said to be very skilled in magic and could shape-shift.  He could extinguish fires with his words:

He was also able with mere words to extinguish fires, to calm seas, and turn the winds any way he please.  He had a ship called Skithblathnir with which he sailed over great seas.  It could be folded together like a cloth.
 Othin had with him Mimir's head, which told him many tidings from other worlds; and at times he would call to life dead men out of the ground, or he would sit down under men that were hanged.  On this account he was called Lord of Ghouls of the hanged.  He had two ravens on whom he had bestowed the gift of speech.  They flew far and wide over the lands and told him many tidings.  By these means he became very wise in his lore.  And all these skills he taught with those runes and songs which are called magic songs [charms].  For this reason the Aesir are called Workers of Magic.
- Snorri Sturluson - Heimskringla - pages 10-11.

Now, I have just revealed that Odin-Zeus was a "Worker of Magic" or a magician.  Where do you think King Solomon and the Secret Societies get their teachings from?

George Bush in Skull and Bones (fair use title 17 section 107)
Do you see the skull in the above picture?  This represents the magical skull of Mimir (used for Necromancy).  The clock represents the Cronide bloodline (Cronus is not only the God of the Air, but the God of time).  The legs are positioned to represent the Freemasonic Square and Compass (which also forms part of the Cronide bloodline Tree of Life and Tree of Death from Kabbalah) and these people above practice Sorcery (which probably includes blood sacrifice as Jews are doing today and have done in their "Cult of Jupiter Sabazios").  These ancient rituals go back to Odin-Zeus and his mystery schools that he and the rest of the Cronides established.  Is it any wonder why I can't get interviews from mainstream or alternative media?  Both are controlled.  From a site about ritual Jewish sacrifice:

Types of Karbanot
There are many different types of Karbanot, and the laws related to them are detailed and complicated. This section introduces some of the major types of Karbanot - there are many subtypes within these classifications and other types that do not fit into these categories.
Olah: Burnt Offering
Perhaps the best-known class of offerings is the burnt offering. It was the oldest and commonest sacrifice, and represented submission to G-d's will. The Hebrew word for burnt offering is olah, from the root Ayin-Lamed-Heh, meaning ascension. It is the same root as the word aliyah, which is used to describe moving to Israel or ascending to the podium to say a blessing over the Torah. An olah is completely burnt on the outer altar; no part of it is eaten by anyone. Because the offering represents complete submission to G-d's will, the entire offering is given to G-d (i.e., it cannot be used after it is burnt). It expresses a desire to commune with G-d, and expiates sins incidentally in the process (because how can you commune with G-d if you are tainted with sins?). An olah could be made from cattle, sheep, goats, or even birds, depending on the offerer's means.
