I have come across a very interesting site describing CD discs and A COMPUTER(!!) in the Bible and in other ancient writings....
..here is a excert from the site...
"What we refer to as a 'computer system' was known as an "Oracle" in ancient times.
The location of many Oracles throughout the Middle East are well documented, and when the described individual pieces of an oracle apparatus are
examined, it is clearly seen that a computer is being described.
1230 BC Hebrew Descriptions
Along with the two Tables of Testimony and associated with the Ark of the Covenant and the four rings, were dishes with a cover and bowls, an Ark of
Testimony, a Table, a Tabernacle, and a Mercy Seat.
In Exodus 35:11-13 we are further told of the tabernacle of the Oracle apparatus plus its attributes.
Again, we need to check the original meanings of these words from Strong's Concordance
H-word 4908 "tabernacle" means 'a residence' (as in the Temple).
168 "tent" means 'a covering' as clearly conspicuous from a distance. ie 'a conspicuous covering'.
4372 "covering" comes from word 3680 which means 'to plump' as in to fill in the hollow.
7165 "taches" means 'a belaying pin' but comes from word 7164 which means 'to protrude'.
The Old English word for "belaying" lecgan comes from two words 'be-lay'. "Pin" means 'to hold firmly in one position'. So using the Old
English and Hebrew etymologies, "taches" refers to 'something that is belayed and is held firmly in one position on a protrusion'.
7175 "boards" is from an unused root that means 'to split off'.
1280 "bars" comes from word 1272 which means 'to flee suddenly'.
5982 "pillars" means 'a standing column'.
This gives; The conspicuous covering of the residence. Something belayed is to fill in the hollow and be held firmly in position on the protrusion
from the tabernacle that splits off then flees suddenly.
"The protrusion from the tabernacle" refers to the CD-Rom Drive Tray that protrudes from a computer and then "flees suddenly" once a compact disk
is placed "firmly in position in the hollow".
134 "sockets" means 'a basis of a building' but comes from the same as word 113 which means 'controller', and is given the meanings of
'foundation' and 'sockets'. This derives 'the sockets at the foundation of the controller building'.
727 "ark" means 'a box'.
905 "staves" means 'a separation'.
3727 "Mercy Seat" means 'a lid'.
6532 "vail" means 'the sacred screen'.
4539 "covering" comes from word 5526 which means 'to entwine' or to join together.
7979 "table" means 'a spread out table'.
905 "staves' means a staff or rod.
3627 "vessels" means 'an apparatus, a utensil'.
6440, 3899 "shewbread" is made up of two words. 6440 comes from an unused noun and means 'the face (as the part that turns)'. 3899 means 'food
for man' (as in knowledge).
This gives; From the sockets at the foundation of the controller box; a separation - the Mercy Seat lid and the sacred screen; joined together - a
spread out table and a staff utensil. The turning face is knowledge for man.
"The turning face is knowledge for man" refers to the knowledge contained within the Ancients CD-Rom which has the golden face of the sun-god (the
mask of Agamemnon) thereon.
The "staff utensil" (a computer's mouse) and the "spread out table" (the keyboard) are joined to the "controller box" (CPU box) via "sockets"
at its base, as is the "sacred screen" (monitor).
Exodus 38:7-8 tells us attributes of the Mercy Seat and Looking Glass.
H-word 3871 "boards" means 'a glistening polished or plate'.
3595 "laver" means 'something round as excavated'; a platform.
"Brass" is a yellowish colour.
This means that the Mercy Seat altar is a yellowish excavated round platform for a glistening polished plate. ie. the protruding CD-Rom Tray
H-word 3653 "foot" means 'a stand'.
4759 "looking glasses" means 'a vision' and also 'a mirror'.
This means the looking-glass mirror has a brass coloured stand. ie. the monitor's stand is a yellowish shade, being the colour of the plastic
generally used for computers in the early 1990s.
The ancient Hebrew people have faithfully described the pieces of the apparatus through which they consulted the Oracle in their Jerusalem Temple, but
due to the Old English religious translations not always using the original meanings of the Hebrew words, the description of a computer system has not
been recognized - until now.
* The Temple of the Lord is the CPU (computer box) in a Tower Case.
* The Mercy Seat refers to the CD-Drive Tray upon which you place the offering (compact disk) [at the top of the Tower].
* The Sacred Screen (ark of testimony) is the Monitor on its Stand. (= The Looking Glass)
* The Spread out Table is the Keyboard.
* The Sacred Rod (Staff of Moses) is the Mouse and its Cable.
* The Plates are the clear Plastic containers that hold the compact disks.
* The Two Stone Tables are two specifically documented and described compact disks.
* The Ark of the Covenant is a wooden box that held the compact disks.
* The Four Rings refer to the four specific multimedia CD-Roms.
* The Horns refer to the stereo Speakers."
If anyone has extensive knowledge of ancient Biblical or Hebrew texts can check this out and let us know if this is in any way accurate or just some
guy's imagination run wild.
