Hello, very interesting subject!!!!!
The Dial of Ahaz Its a Sundial ? Its a Degrees Dial? or a Steps Dial? The Hebrew word for "DIAL" is "DEGREES", or "STEPS", nature grow by
137.5° degress in a spiral increasing by fibonacci sequence.
altitude can be the steps ?
Personally I call it the Spiralway of Adam, Our simulation go Ten degrees back on Latitude and Longitude. Also for each coordinate we
increase/decrease both or single data coordinate as below: so:
Hezekiah's Pool. (The Ambassadors): 35.228997,31.776960,0 (0,0)
Ten Step Back. North: 25.228997,21.776960,0 (-10,-10)
Ten Step South: 45.228997,41.776960,0 (+10,+10)
Ten Step East: 25.228997,41.776960,0 (-10,+10)
Ten Step West: 45.228997,21.776960,0 (+10,-10)
Winter Solstice Sunset: 45.228997,31.776960,0 (+10,+10)
Winter Solstice Sunrise: 25.228997,31.776960,0 (-10,0)
Summer Solstice Sunrise 35.228997,21.776960,0 (0,-10)
Summer Solstice Sunset 35.228997,41.776960,0 (0,+10)
Here the results on a map with google earth:
Well it looks more a Scavenger Hunt Game based on a Time machine
I apologize to post here a link, but for someone that wish to read our research based on the Spiralway of ahaz .. here our website.
As the approach is with an interdisciplinary thinking and as our docs are mostly in draft the requirement is to be patient on read our docs.

Alright I had this on my mind for a while. I read the book of Kings one and two quite a few times. I always remembered the story of God making a sun
dial go back ten degrees and wondered if it was proof of time travel.
My curiosity was peeked when someone on another thread mentioned that there were no scriptures relating to time travel. I did a bunch of searches on
this and only found a few very bizarre sites and some that I would have to pay for to read. So here is the story in a nutshell.
2 Kings 20:1 1 In those days was Hezeki'ah sick unto death. And the prophet Isaiah the son of Amoz came to him, and said unto him, Thus saith the
LORD, Set thine house in order; for thou shalt die, and not live.
So the king was sick and was told he would die. He prayed to God for some more time and God granted it to him. As a sign God said He would move the
shadow on the sun dial back ten degrees because everyone knows that it is impossible.
2 Kings 20:8-11 8 And Hezeki'ah said unto Isaiah, What shall be the sign that the LORD will heal me, and that I shall go up into the house of the
LORD the third day? 9 And Isaiah said, This sign shalt thou have of the LORD, that the LORD will do the thing that he hath spoken: shall the shadow
go forward ten degrees, or go back ten degrees? 10 And Hezeki'ah answered, It is a light thing for the shadow to go down ten degrees: nay, but let
the shadow return backward ten degrees. 11 And Isaiah the prophet cried unto the LORD: and he brought the shadow ten degrees backward, by which
it had gone down in the dial of Ahaz.
Now after this the King had been given fifteen years. Does anyone know anything about sun dials? Would the amount of ten degrees actually be fifteen
years? Or was the amount of degrees insignificant to the time he was given?
