I see @Cairenn has 'liked' your reply there, which is fine, but brings to my mind certain subjective perceptions which I'll come to in a minute.Er, Babylon wasn't located in Africa.
I'm going to start using my new descriptor 'Jonesian' more often, and it's the Jonesian bone of contention concerning Washington D.C capitol buildings and structures that is actually of greatest interest to me in this thread. To be fair, it's hardly Jonesian, many have argued over this sort of thing for a long time.
I will retrieve evidence for @Cairenn, who has unfortunately left the room on this one, so may not see it or engage in discussion. The literature is in another city, I'm stuck writing from a phone as ever, but will pull something together after this message. I'm confident evidence can easily be dismissed as esoteric 'mumbo jumbo' and mere coincidence by anyone who cares to countenance, then I can move on.
Before I do that I wish to respond to your point regarding my use of place names such as Babylon, Egypt or Africa, and any confusion arising from it.
Let's be clear, what I'm talking about is simply one line from an earlier post on Alex Jones, and nothing else. I have no material from Alex Jones on this, other than those words. My simple agreement with it, "at a glance", comes from reading material that has nothing to do with Infowars:
The reason I spoke of both Babylon and Egypt is simply because they are both in the statement. My emphasis, however, regards Africa.
I do wonder a little as to why @Cairenn has 'like' backed what was, I believe, a simple interjection and call for clarity on your part, rather than a criticism? I subjectively interpret the 'like' as affirming a 'backing proof' that I was somehow wrong to have asserted Babylon is in Africa, in order to discredit my positive position on Jones' statement, when in fact I never even stated that Babylon was in Africa in the first place.
It would be like saying Bermuda is in Venezuela or New York is in Chicago! - and is irrelevant.
The reasons I spoke of Africa (though Africa is not in the statement) are many fold and complex, and motivated by truth, reason, politics, ideology and not least, plain and simple geography. I will speak relentlessly (not here, anywhere in life) within such terms to counter the conceits of the one hundred generations since Herodotus, and more particularly those since the enlightenment and European colonial era. This connects to the greatest holocaust, conspiracy and lie of the entire history of mankind! - And I will make humble efforts, at every opportunity, to redress imbalances and distortions that pervade society everywhere one turns.
Some folks simply cannot get on board with certain truths; in colonial Europe, America, particularly so. To accept truth is to watch one's world view crumble. Can one imagine 'caucasian' people in the deep south of the states, in rural England or elsewhere, who nowadays, because of politically correct conceits, repress ingrained views that their country is white and that the black people in their neighbourhoods are not actual fellow countrymen or women, Americans, Britons, or whatever, but 'other' people who through happenstance of history now live next door or share the bus, accepting a truth that these same people their parents and grandparents told them are nothing, are stupid, are ex-slaves, dangerous, common and lascivious are in fact the people they owe nearly everything to in terms of human civilisation, science, mathematics and reasoning?
This is such a taboo and a perhaps subliminal or subconscious aspect of the biggest taboo in the United States. Cuts people's complacent identities to ribbons so people simply do not want to go there. Many mask this under faux-liberal attitudes, I've touched on that before.
Now, this may all seem tangential to readers but I believe this is the reason why contentions such as Alex Jones', in this instance, are suppressed. The question I ask is "So what if it is an occult, Egyptian Washington D.C?" This is where I, yet again, agree with a 'conspiracy view' but fundamentally differ in interpretation of it. However, we're talking here of the centre of the greatest nation on earth, with white, Anglo-Saxon and Protestant Christian founding fathers, a country borne of the slave trade, laying testament in stone to Africa, to the occult mysteries and gods that form the very genesis of our concept of God and human endeavour. Such an idea is unseating, and cannot be accepted.
I don't wish to get involved in debates about various cradles of civilisation, wonderful things emanated from all peoples everywhere. I just wish to be clear. The entire world has passed through Egypt, Arabs, Romans, Greeks, Persians, Babylonians, and all have contributed, no doubt, but the ancient Egyptians themselves are African people, Ethiopians, as Herodotus described them, in the days before taboo and lies of the type that shape our everyday lives.
I'm happy to strike two words from Jones' statement:
For three reasons:
1: I can't speak for 'all'. I'm referring to overall original design, structure and dimensions.
2: I can't speak for Babylon. Regard that as somewhat of a distraction. I've come across Alex Jones invoking the name 'Babylon' quite regularly. Unlike Egypt, a place that still very much exists, Babylon, though still there too, speaks of a mystic and fabled past, and ties in with his well publicised views on Skull and Bones, Bohemian Grove and Druidic cultism, which is all good and, unlike many here, I'll go along with elements of that, but it's not pertinent here.
3: Mystery cults, be they Babylonian, Greek or Roman go back to Egypt and the African peoples, as do we all, according to modern science. The sources I have come across concerning Washington D.C speak of Egypt, Africa, only.
