I have updated my paper on Hezekiah’s Tunnel. You may find it here.
My new update on the Jerusalem temple is completed as of today and can be found 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:

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.
I have updated an article on Hezekiah’s Tunnel. It details how the mysterious water tunnel in Jerusalem could have been constructed. The mystery involves a seemingly impossible excavation and a connection with the holy temple built to the north. The article may be found at this link: String used to construct Hezekiah’s Tunnel.
