I have heard loose stories about the story from before this.
There are a couple of different ways the stories go.
1, Enoch, the great grandfather of Noah, who walked very closely with God and was taken up to heaven without having to die, was forewarned of the
flood to come. He recieved a great deal of knowledge from God which he recorded on two pillars, 1 of marble, 1 of stone.
2. The other Enoch, a descendant of Cain, who built the first city, etc. was the father of Human civilization, probably becuse he was helped by fallen
angels/nephalim, and it was he who recorded to two pillars.
I'm sure there are other versions, and I dont know exactly what is supposed to have happened after the flood. The bible does say though that Nephalim
showed up again after the flood somehow, so if we assumed that the story was factual (which it may very well not be) then it doesn't have to be
Noah's descendants who found it.
The story also goes that Solomon somehow got his hands on the pillars and that they were hidden inside the two pillars of his temple, which is
supposedly the source of the secret knowledge of Masonry.
Of course, it's all stories- just stuff I read online. It's a great story, i love hearing about it and talking about it, etc. But we only "know"
so much, and the vast majority of it is sort of uncertain.
