I have a paper concerning temple steps on the temple mount ready for reading. It helps confirm my temple location. You may read it here. temple steps paper
have a new paper concerning the distance of 2000 cubits from locations on the temple mount. This helps to confirm the temple’s location. You can read the paper here.
My paper ‘Sacred Surveying in Jerusalem’ is online. It concerns a number of locations with in the City paper on survey of Jerusalem forming a pattern. This helps to confirm my temple location.
I have a new project I am currently working on. I will post a link to this paper when it is completed. I have found classes of Roman buildings were designed in the same manner which I believe has never been realized before.
I have updated my Jerusalem Temple paper. You can find the new update here.
A number of alignments can be seen from cuttings on the surface of the rock within the Dome of the Rock. You can find these alignments in the article found here. This is a new paper with no updated versions.
I have a new paper concerning the orientation of the Muslim Dome of the Rock being set by a number of ancient Jewish cuttings on the surface of the rock. This is a new subject and not an updating of a previous paper.
You can find the paper here:
Some believe the temple was located at the Dome of the Rock. Others believe it was located else where. Considering the Dome of the Rock, the altar may have stood upon the showcased rock, or the Holy of Holies may have stood upon this rock. It also has been proposed that the approximate center of the Holy Place which is the main room of the temple stood upon the aforementioned rock,
I have a proposal which has never been considered before. The Dome of the Rock is on the site of the temple but not exactly where anyone has proposed it to have been located before. This is a most important consideration concerning the location of the temple in Jerusalem. The site was that the rock under the dome was bedrock under:
THE EASTERN HALF OF THE HOLY PLACE, AND THE ADJOINING DOORWAY WITH IT’S THRESHOLD, AND DOORPOSTS, PILLARS, WESTERN END OF PORCH BEFORE THE DOORWAY AND PILLARS, AND ALSO SOME SPACE NORTH OF THESE AREAS, CONSISTING OF A FEW ROOMS AND PASSAGEWAYS.
Instead of the commonly supposed idea that the rock was at the western part of the temple, I propose it was at the eastern part of the temple.
This can be considered the summation of my entire theses. If any evidence were to surface at any time from now confirming the above statements, then I hold claim by virtue of the dates by which I have written papers, blog entries, books, websites, to this discovery or proposal, and if any evidence were to surface confirming that the above statements are wrong, then I acknowledge that I am not the discoverer and that I am in error with all the statements I have written over the years. There can be only one true site of the temple unless it was built at more then one place which is doubtful.
The main paper containing my full theses, can be found as always written in these blog entries may be found here:
Other papers, website, video links may be found from links in my other blog entries.
I have one more paper to work on about Baalbek.I will post it and notify you on this blog when the paper is online.
I have updated my website and I have improved the navigation around the site. The website has material not posted on this blog. It also has material not discussed in this blog or on the papers linked to on this blog. It all free– this blog, these papers, my video clips. Everything is one of a kind– unique– very unique. You will not find the material given on any other website or book ever written even if you you were to do searches. You will find material concerning the Urim and Thummim in websites or books, but not my explanations.
My Urim and Thummim are multiples of a single plate design which when held up and manipulated over each other, will create magic trick illusions. You actually see this working in my video clips. And this is but one of many topics you will find from this blog, my website my books and my video clips.
You will find webpages containing information about my two books Sacred Stones Sacred Stories volumes 1 and 2 on my website. If you go to my website, you may click on the book pages or not.
I do not use a hard sell or even a soft sell or send spam or sell to third parties any data to peddle these books. I am afraid people will not comment, or make me a favorite, or reblog in any form if they think I would will put them on a list to try to get them to buy these books. The webpages are up on the website because I need to advertise that these books do exist and are for sale, so that I do not have to hear “oh, if I only knew you have books about this or that”. The only way you can buy books is by emailing me directly any questions or by placing an order.
But since I am writing about these books, here are some details not stated on the website.
These books have the details my free materials lack. For example– you learn a little about one or two of the Urim And Thummim images in the free media, but volume 2 has the details of ALL the images I have, and ALL the details I have worked out. The book has a chapter on how I discovered the images. I do not give away all my knowledge of free.
Likewise in Volume 1 you will learn about my early work on the Jerusalem Temple location. This book has material not found in my free papers. All of volume 1 goes into greater depth of subjects of which my free material is my newer researches.
These two books are made from 24 lb archival paper. The hard cover is done by an old time book bindery company using century old equipment and techniques which are made to last.
I have enough material to made a second edition hard cover, soft cover, or ebook edition of Volume 1, but these is not in the foreseeable future.
Joesph Lieberman, the ex senator and the U.S. vice presidential Democratic party’s nominee in 2000 election has given me endorsements on both volumes.
These books have the potential of being extremely collectible.

The Amrit temple may have used the Phoenician survey system similar to the system used in the Jerusalem temple mount site. This would be another example of using 5:8:8 triangles. You may read my other papers which demonstrate the other sites. You may read the paper here:
I have updated my paper on the Holy Sepulcher having proof of the Jerusalem temple location. You may read the paper here.
I can show how the Israelite sacred space at tel Dan could have been surveyed by the same system used at other middle eastern sacred spaces such as the Jerusalem Temple on the Temple Mount. You may find the paper here.
I have updated my paper on Tel Arad. You may read the paper here. This paper shows how the Israelite temple at Tel Arad was surveyed by the same system as the Jerusalem Temple on the Temple Mount.
I have a new paper which will show that the Dome of the Rock holds hidden length ratios as in the sacred space of the Jewish temples. Other similar octagonal buildings also have these ratios present in their design. It is remarkable that the Dome of the Rock exists on the Jewish temple site with both sacred spaces having these very same ratios. you may find this paper here.
I have written a new paper on the basic principles for surveying sacred spaces. You may read the paper here:
This paper gives the basic ideas for all papers concerning surveying of ancient near eastern sacred sites utilizing 5:8:8 triangles.
A number of sites showing my survey system are currently being investigated. If there are any results showing similarities, I will post a new blog entry of details.
I am working on a number of new sites, to see if my triangle system of measuring used at the Jerusalem temple site works at these new sites as well. I will add blog links as my papers become available.
I have updated my paper on the the Church of the Holy Sepulcher proving the Jewish temple location. You may find the paper here:
This paper shows the location of Golgotha and how important landmarks of the city were measured.
I have found a Semitic temple at Palmyra may have been designed using the same method used at the Jerusalem Temple and in the Israelite temple at Arad. This is expected since the Jerusalem temple was built by Semites from Tyre. This system appears to be used in some Semitic temples.
You may read my paper here:
More evidence for the location of the Jerusalem Temple comes from the archeological remains of known locations of large cisterns about a central area which match ancient Talmudic descriptions for where cisterns could have been dug on the temple site. This has been done in other reconstructions (as by Leen Ritmeyer), but one unique particular cistern is a major piece of evidence for placing the temple precisely at my location.
This cistern of an unusual shape has a noticeable hole in a knob at its western end This hole appears to be a well shaft similar to wells having a large pulley wheel once attached to a rope to pull up buckets of water.
- This cistern seen in Fig.D7 and in Figs. 6 and 6a
(see my paper “How Jerusalem Temple Laid Out Using Measuring Cords” )
puts this well just within the southern end of the outdoor court yard, and thus outside the Golah Chamber, whereas Leen Ritmeyer’s reconstruction puts the well Inside the chamber building. This difference in distance is very slight but very significant because in my reconstruction, water could have been drawn efficiently within the courtyard instead of from a room inside a building. If the well was ever made to overflow (by aqua duct or connecting to the Laver water supply which appears to have been the case since a connection did exist [see Fig. 86 number 40 in Below The Temple Mount In Jerusalem; Shimon Gibson and David M. Jacobson; BAR International Series 637; Hadrian Books Ltd; England), this would have flooded the courtyard with much needed water to wash the bloody courtyard. To flood the courtyard with a well located inside a building would have been obviously impossible to achieve. There also were a number of smaller openings running in a long narrow section running south of the big well which would have been inside the chamber in both reconstructions. In both reconstructions this wheel well would have been near the ramps going up to the nearby altar. Here is a fact: I have created a reconstruction made by laying out a triangle from natural features on the temple mount, which predicts where temple features should have been located. If during archaeological digging, the predicted feature does exist, then the whole design is confirmed. Here is just one example where archaeological digging — the known existence of this underground cistern with this well like opening (I believe there is evidence of rope wear on the sides of this well hole which would be evidence of this being a well shaft at some time) is precisely where my model predicts this well to be — by the side of the ramp going up to and close to the base of the great altar, but just abetting the wall of the nearby Golah Chamber building. This location also is my predicted location of the Golah Chamber being west of the Hewn Chamber, both chambers being near the altar. (The Golah Chamber being in Benjamin, and the Hewn Chamber being in Judah as detailed in my paper.) This location also shows a connection to my predicted location of the laver. Now this laver was located on the south side of the temple’s Ulam. This is similar to the thigh bone being connected to the hip bone and the hip is connected to… i.e. if you find one bone in a skeleton, you can reconstruct the locations of all the other bones but only if you know the lengths of the other bones. In the case of the temple and all the courts we do from the Talmud.
A number of other cisterns are on predicted sites. In fact all cisterns are either on the predicted sites or are very close to them. I have a number of other predicted sites working perfectly, which are not cisterns. All of these sites are detailed in my paper.
Here are major pieces of evidence for my location:
- Cistern 24 have dimensions and structures matching Talmudic detailing. (I am in the process of adding this cistern to my paper. I will announce this when the update is available.
- Great Altar must be on bedrock.
- Temple had to be close to summit of the hill where the mid line through the eastern end of the Holy Place on the northern side of this mid line would have the bedrock just below the floor level to allow a priest to obtain dirt from the bedrock floor here for the ritual of Sotah. A adult male could not lift a 1 Cubit square stone and reach the underlying bedrock by going down a ladder by squeezing though a 1 Cubit square hole. He must have been able to touch the rock because the depth of the foundation had to be very shallow at this particular location.
- The location of the well hole discussed previously is at the predicted location outside the Golah Chamber.
- Details of the rock under octagonal building can be explained as not being the site of the Holy of Holies. Also the age of cuttings on the surface of this rock can be dated post temple destruction described in my paper linked here.
- Evidence within the Church of the Holy Sepulchre as described in my paper, ” Holy Sepulchre“
Except for the final statement, all of the above holds true in my reconstruction, but not in the Leen Ritmeyer reconstruction.
