The Secret of the Trident

The trident is an ancient symbol.  Most associate it with the Greek God, Poseidon.  He has a trident in his hand in most depictions.

Some portray the trident as having a mystical power that could emit some sort of electronic or laser ray to destroy an enemy.  More than likely, that trident was used to catch fish, garden, and defend oneself with.
As I said, the trident was a common ancient tool that was also used for gardening and the Asian Sai is a trident not only used for combat, but for gardening, too.  Per Wikipedia:
garden forkspading forkdigging fork or graip is a gardening implement, with a handle and several (usually four) short, sturdy tines. It is used for loosening, lifting and turning over soil in gardening and farming. It is used similarly to a spade, but in many circumstances it is more appropriate than a spade: the tines allow the implement to be pushed more easily into the ground, it can rake out stones and weeds and break up clods, it is not so easily stopped by stones, and it does not cut through weed roots or root-crops. Garden forks were originally made of wood, but the majority are now made of carbon steel or stainless steel.
Garden forks are slightly different from pitchforks, which are used for moving loose materials such as piled hay, compost, or manure. Garden forks have comparatively a fairly short, usually wooden handle, with a "D" or "T" end. Their tines are usually shorter, flatter, thicker, and more closely spaced.

A smaller version of such forks with shorter, closer-spaced, thinner tines (but a full-sized handle) is known as a border fork orladies' fork, and is used for lighter work such as weeding amongst other plants. Forks with broader, flatter tines are made for liftingpotatoes and other root crops from the ground. A pair of forks back-to-back is often used to lever apart dense clumps of roots.

It is not uncanny that the Greek letter Psi looks like a trident or Sai and is pronounced the same.  This is because this tool probably originated out of Tyre, Crete, and Greece and was introduced to the rest of the world during the Cronide travels.  Many of these symbols probably originated out of ancient Tyre and were similar to Hieroglyphics in that they represented a physical object or concept.
As far as the language of Hebrew goes, it is very similar and probably came from ancient Phoenician. There is a professor who also says that Hebrew is ancient Greek with a slight variation.
The book he wrote sells for over $1900 on Amazon which is highly suspect.
To me this is nothing new.  Through my research, I have shown that the Cronides travelled the world and spawned many bloodlines.  The secret of the trident is that it was used as a gardening tool, a fishing tool, and later as a weapon and it was this such tool that was introduced to the world by the Cronides, along with many other tools for agriculture.
