Historical significance

The first record of a nova dates from 1400 BC in China, in an oracle bone inscription, which reads: "On the 7th day of the month, a new star appeared next to 'Heart Constellation II'."

You will see the inscription here, maybe 10-12 pages/slides down

The Chinese “Ho” star is Antares. ... It has sometimes been referred to as "the Heart of the Scorpion".

This would be right at the time of Exodus and Egypt's Plagues!

Hi

A gamma ray burst directly at earth would fry anyone above ground and destroy the ozone layer.
The 10 years it needs to recover we would be bombarded with cosmic radiation without our protective shield.

It will devastate the entire ecosystem and we will be more then lucky to survive at all.

There have been a couple of super novas visible like the crab nebula that was spotted by the Chinese.
Is it the crab nebula ?

If you don't know what this means, this has EVERYTHING TO DO WITH REVELATION 9

Apolloyon (The Destroyer) and the 5 months of a torment of a SCORPION!


The Revelation
of St. John the Divine
9


2 And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit.
3 And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power.
4 And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads.
5 And to them it was given that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented five months: and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion, when he striketh a man.
6 And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them.
7 ¶ And the shapes of the locusts were like unto horses prepared unto battle; and on their heads were as it were crowns like gold, and their faces were as the faces of men.
8 And they had hair as the hair of women, and their teeth were as the teeth of lions.
9 And they had breastplates, as it were breastplates of iron; and the sound of their wings was as the sound of chariots of many horses running to battle.
10 And they had tails like unto scorpions, and there were stings in their tails: and their power was to hurt men five months.
11 And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abad'don, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apol'ly-on.

It would clearly depend on how far away it is from the Earth and if it was entirely directed at us. So it would depend on those natures.

The word "scorpions" again!

The Fifth Book of Moses, Called
Deuteronomy
8


14 then thine heart be lifted up, and thou forget the LORD thy God, which brought thee forth out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage;
15 who led thee through that great and terrible wilderness, wherein were fiery serpents, and scorpions, and drought, where there was no water; who brought thee forth water out of the rock of flint;
16 who fed thee in the wilderness with manna, which thy fathers knew not, that he might humble thee, and that he might prove thee, to do thee good at thy latter end;

True it all depends on the distance of its origin and the power it got .

Have you checked if this place in the sky it has been seen holds a planetary nebula ?

In the inscription from 1400 B.C. it says the star appeared suddenly and disappeared suddenly, which would allude to a Gamma Ray outbursts.

It also says in the inscription that it comes near the Ho star, or Hearth Constellation, which would be Scorpion/Scorpius

en.wikipedia.org...(Chinese_constellation)

Here is a very good link to it!

Gamma Ray burst would happen quickly and unexpectedly. Different from a Supernova I believe where we can somewhat track its nature. It would come like a "thief in the night"

a quick search:

Antares: Definition from Answers.com
n. A giant red binary star, the brightest in the constellation Scorpio, about 424 light-years from Earth. [Greek Antarēs : anti- , rival of; see anti- + Arēs , Ares ...
www.answers.com/topic/antares - Cached


the Chinese Ho star is the Antares of western culture... 424 LY from Earth should greatly reduce any Gamma Rays.



and a general question to the OP or other posters:
in any case, the 1,400 bce date sounds rather recent for the exodus...is that a proven time slot? because the Pyramids are from about 2,500 bce = which is a thousand years earlier

Yes it is well known the Exodus and the Plagues of Egypt happened around 1400 B.C.

Anyone Chinese here or know Chinese?

I wonder what this means in the inscription.

"On the Jisi day, the 7th day of the month, a big new star appeared in the company of the Ho star."

"On the Xinwei day the new star dwindled."

If I'm not mistaken, a typical gama-ray event has a kill radius of about 1,000 light-years.

Gamma rays may have devastated life on Earth

Currently WR104, a massive star 8,000 light-years away in the constellation Sagittarius, is in position to be a potential threat, Thomas noted.


Gamma-Ray Burst Caused Mass Extinction?

8000 light years away... Our mind isn't even capable of understanding the distance.


According to a 2004 study, a GRB at a distance of about a kiloparsec (3,262 light-years) could destroy up to half of Earth's ozone layer; the direct UV irradiation from the burst combined with additional solar UV radiation passing through the diminished ozone layer could then have potentially significant impacts on the food chain and potentially trigger a mass extinction.


source:

3.262 light years is not good.

From your source which says it was a nova.

Historical significance

The first record of a nova dates from 1400 BC in China, in an oracle bone inscription, which reads: "On the 7th day of the month, a new star appeared next to 'Heart Constellation II'." From 1400 BC to AD 1600, China recorded 90 novas. Among them the supernova discovered in 1054 was the first to be confirmed by modern radio astronomers. In 1731, a British astronomer discovered an oblong spot of fog over China. After observation, calculation and analysis by several astronomers, it was proved that the crab-shaped nebula found in this position was the ruins of a supernova that had shot out of a dense cluster some 900 years previously, i.e., the year of 1054. This discovery was one of the most significant astronomical findings in the 1960s.



This remnant (RX J0852.0-4622) had been found in front (apparently) of the larger Vela Supernova Remnant. The gamma rays from the decay of titanium-44 showed that it must have exploded fairly recently (perhaps around 1200 AD), but there is no historical record of it. The flux of gamma rays and x-rays indicates that the supernova was relatively close to us (perhaps 200 parsecs or 600 ly). If so, this is a surprising event because supernovae less than 200 parsecs away are estimated to occur less than once per 100,000 years.


Source:

Whatever my search did or did not show doesn't change the the results that a gamma ray burst would produce and these do not include : Locust, raining frogs, bloody river or splitting seas.

What other event could have caused these plagues ? I suggest to read up on the Minoan civilization and their destruction.


Somewhere between history and myth lie two historical events of immense importance that shook up and overwhelmed the Hellenic grounds: the destruction of the Minoan Civilization and the eruption of the Santorini Volcano, almost 3,500 years ago. Since Evans discovered the lost Palace of King Minos in Crete, archaeologists and scientists have been trying to connect the two events.


The Minoan Civilization flourished 5000 years ago

What is your reason for combining revelation and the exodus actually ? Since the so called time they would have taken place and been written is not really compatible.

Actually theory has been changed and it now makes more sense. Even you came to the conclusion that it must have been something else besides a Supernova or Gamma Ray Burst. Whatever that inscription is is very intriguing and I think it could have to do with Venus or Lucifer.

I would suggest this is the more correct theory.



Velikovsky believed that ancient records of a Venus that rivaled the Sun for brightness (according to the Chinese) and blazed “from one end of the cosmos to the other” (according to a rabbinical source) denotes a close encounter about 1450 B.C. when earth passed thru Venus’ cometary tail. The Egyptians suffered lack of potable water as a fine red dust turned the waters red as blood. Fish died and rotted in the rivers. The Egyptian Ipuwer wrote: “Plague is throughout the land. Blood is everywhere.” The Babylonians wrote that Tiamat, the monster in the sky, poured out her blood all over the world. The dust phase turned to a meteorite phase, when hail and fire poured down — perhaps the source of the phrase “fire and brimstone”. In Mexico, the Annals of Cuaahtitlan says that the sky “rained not water, but fire, and red-hot stones.” Then a rain of burning naphtha, and a paroxysm of earth changes as the gravitational and possibly plasmic forces altered the earth’s axis and brought about floods and quakes. China had floods, while Arabia became a desert. From the Americas to Europe to the Middle East to China, records tell us of darkness that lasted for three days. Again, myth turns this cosmological event into a story. The Babylonians say that Marduk struck the dragon Tiamat (Venus) with bolts of fire. The Egyptians saw Isis (Venus) and Set in deadly battle. The Hindus say that Vishnu battled the “crooked serpent”. Zeus, says Apollodorus, fought the coiled viper Typhon. The dragon or snake-like descriptions are describing the comet-like tail of Venus at that time.

The Book of the Prophet
Isaiah
11


14 But they shall fly upon the shoulders of the Philistines toward the west; they shall spoil them of the east together: they shall lay their hand upon Edom and Moab; and the children of Ammon shall obey them.
15 And the LORD shall utterly destroy the tongue of the Egyptian sea; and with his mighty wind shall he shake his hand over the river, and shall smite it in the seven streams, and make men go over dry-shod. Rev. 16.12
16 And there shall be a highway for the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria; like as it was to Israel in the day that he came up out of the land of Egypt.

The Book of the Prophet
Isaiah
14

11 Thy pomp is brought down to the grave, and the noise of thy viols: the worm is spread under thee, and the worms cover thee.
12 ¶ How art thou fallen from heaven, Rev. 8.10 O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!
13 For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:
14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the Most High.
15 Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.
16 They that see thee shall narrowly look upon thee, and consider thee, saying, Is this the man that made the earth to tremble, that did shake kingdoms;
17 that made the world as a wilderness, and destroyed the cities thereof; that opened not the house of his prisoners?
18 All the kings of the nations, even all of them, lie in glory, every one in his own house.
19 But thou art cast out of thy grave like an abominable branch, and as the raiment of those that are slain, thrust through with a sword, that go down to the stones of the pit; as a carcass trodden under feet.
20 Thou shalt not be joined with them in burial, because thou hast destroyed thy land, and slain thy people: the seed of evildoers shall never be renowned.
21 ¶ Prepare slaughter for his children for the iniquity of their fathers; that they do not rise, nor possess the land, nor fill the face of the world with cities.
22 For I will rise up against them, saith the LORD of hosts, and cut off from Babylon the name, and remnant, and son, and nephew, saith the LORD.
23 I will also make it a possession for the bittern, and pools of water: and I will sweep it with the besom of destruction, saith the LORD of hosts.

The Revelation
of St. John the Divine
8


10 ¶ And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, Is. 14.12 burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters;
11 and the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter.
12 ¶ And the fourth angel sounded, and the third part of the sun was smitten, and the third part of the moon, and the third part of the stars; so as the third part of them was darkened, and the day shone not for a third part of it, and the night likewise.

THIS IS IT! IT HAS TO DO WITH VENUS


The Revelation
of St. John the Divine
22


13 I am Alpha and Ome'ga, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.
14 ¶ Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.
15 For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.
16 ¶ I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, Is. 11.1 and the bright and morning star.

If Lucifer, the morning star/evening star was cast down to Earth to weaken the Nations, Babylon, Egypt, etc. etc. etc. around 1456 B.C. it could mean it comes around again. 1456 B.C. plus 2015 A.D. = 3470 years. Which is very close to the theory of this!

Perhaps than that Chinese inscription of the 15th Century B.C. as shown above, does not show a supernova or a gamma ray burst but instead the collision of Venus with another planetary body!
