Sometimes when looking at history, in certain areas, looking at the events which happened in key eras of our history….. patterns start to appear
Putting it simply, some things cannot be a coincidence….
Looking at key events
*Fall of a 3000yr pharaohonic kingdom
*The Persian empire…and mithra
*Rise of the Roman empire and the catholics
Also looking at the network of cults that initially served an emperor …when the emperor was removed…who did the network of cults work
These key events are responsible for how we today live our lives, in every hemisphere
Religion, science, art, philosophy, agriculture……and SOCIETY
A place that was in my peripheral…which I never addressed….kept coming up again and again…within the backdrop of very importat situations and

The pharaohs biggest enemy…Hittites…well tarsus is considered the home and origin of hitties and their lace of authority

It was the birthplace of paul the apostle
He “is perhaps the most influential early Christian missionary and leader of the first generation of Christians. Among the many other apostles and
missionaries involved in the spread of the Christian faith,
Paul is often considered to be one of the two most important people in the history of Christianity, and one of the greatest religious leaders of all
Almost half of the books of the New Testament are credited to his authorship.
He was responsible for spreading of the Gospel through early Christian communities across the Roman Empire”..after seeing the resurrected
jesus….“He began to preach that Jesus of Nazareth is the Jewish Messiah and the Son of God.[Acts 9:20-21] Through his missionary activities and
writings he eventually transformed religious belief and philosophy around the Mediterranean Basin”…WIKI
“Owing to the importance of Tarsus many martyrs were put to death there, among them being St. Pelagia, St. Boniface, St. Marinus, St. Diomedus, and
Sts. Cerycus and Julitta; several Roman emperors were interred there --- namely, Tacitus, Maximinus Daza, and Julian the Apostate.
The Arabs took possession of Tarsus from the seventh century and kept it until 965, when Nicephorus Phocas annexed it again to the Byzantine Empire.
The union continued for nearly a century. The crusaders captured it again from the Turks in 1097, and then it was disputed between Latins, Greeks, and
Armenians of the Kingdom of Lesser Armenia; these last became definitively masters until about 1350, when it was sold to the Egyptians. Since then
Tarsus has belonged to the Mussulmans. About the end of the tenth century, the Armenians established a diocese of their rite, which still exists; St.
Nerses of Lambroun was its most distinguished representative in the twelfth century” www.newadvent.org...
“The geographer Strabo states that Tarsus was founded by people from Argos who were exploring this coast. Another legend states that Bellerophon
fell off his winged horse Pegasus and landed here, hurting his foot, and thus the city was named tar-sos (the sole of the foot)” WIKI
Though some of the people who resided there, are a real eye opener

Also from wiki…the places of interest, which you can see today are:
Cleopatra's Gate - to the west of the city, the only ancient city gate still standing, where Anthony and Cleopatra entered the city in 41 BC, though
the "restoration" of this structure has involved covering much of it over with shiny new stone (see  for a picture of the gate before the work was

The ancient story of Pegasus, the winged horse, also concerns Tarsus. Because of Pegasus' faithful service to Zeus, Pegasus was honored with a
