Summary
Balanced Rock is generally considered as a geological anomality. However, it appears the Rock was dressed to shape in antiquity. It strongly resembles the shape of the continent of Africa. The 40th latitude line connects this continent with North America. The monument tells the story of the Egyptian discovery of America via the Bering Sea by king Menkaure of the Fourth Dynasty (c.2570 BC). The four Atlantic crossings were subsequently discovered by three kings of the Fifth Dynasty. It appears the carved Rock dates from the 12th or 13th Dynasty (c.1800 BC).

BALANCED ROCK (I), ID

  1. 1. BALANCED ROCK (I) (Buhl, Twin Falls County, Idaho) Dr. R.M. de Jonge ©, drsrmdejonge@hotmail.com July, 2013 Summary Balanced Rock is generally considered as a geological anomality. However, it appears the Rock was dressed to shape in antiquity. It strongly resembles the shape of the continent of Africa. The 40th latitude line connects this continent with North America. The monument tells the story of the Egyptian discovery of America via the Bering Sea by king Menkaure of the Fourth Dynasty (c.2570 BC). The four Atlantic crossings were subsequently discovered by three kings of the Fifth Dynasty. It appears the carved Rock dates from the 12th or 13th Dynasty (c.1800 BC). Introduction “Balanced Rock” is located in south Idaho, west of the Rocky Mountains. The Site is situated 10 miles (16 km) WSW of Buhl, Twin Falls County, a town of about 4,000 inhabitants. It is in the Salmon Falls Creek Canyon, 3,800 feet (1,160 meters) above sea level, on top of a bed- rock formation some 200 feet (60 m) above the canyon floor. It is usely described as a natural Rock, over 48 feet (15 m) tall and equally wide, which balan- ces on a pedestal only 3 feet (1 m) long, and 17 inches (0.5 m) wide. The rock type appears to be rhyolite, and it weighs about 40 tons. - Fig.1 shows the Rock is highly asymmetrical, and it is quite amazing this wind-carved formation has never toppled from its stand.
  2. 2. Fig.1 Balanced Rock in south Idaho (c.1800 BC) (Courtesy: Tom Foster, Ref.1) Egyptian discovery of America King Menkaure Balanced Rock closely resembles a coast map of the continent of Africa (Fig.1). The Medi- terranean Sea is in the North, the Red Sea in the North-East, the Indian Ocean in the East, and the Atlantic Ocean in the West. Egypt is located in the north-eastern corner of Africa, where the Med meets the Red Sea. It is quite obvious the ancient Egyptians tried to use this Rock as a monument for their early discovery of America. - Balanced Rock, Idaho, is located at 42.5°N. The North Cape of Afri- ca is located near the town of Bizerte, Tunesia, at 37.5°N (Fig.1). Latitudes were already known c.4800 BC, as shown by the monument of Barnénez, Brittany, France. The average latitude of exactly 40°N refers to the 40th latitude line, which connects both con- tinents. It strongly suggests America was discovered in the Fourth Dynasty. Tens of megali- thic monuments all over the World tell the same story!
  3. 3. It happened at the southern Aleutian islands, at the south side of the Bering Sea, at the com- plementary latitude of 90-40= c.50°N by the 5th king Menkaure (Mycerinos, c.2580-2562 BC) of this dynasty. In antiquity the use of complementary latitudes was very common. Balanced Rock, ID, is located 42.5-37.5= 5° above the North Cape of Africa, confirming it. The length of the 40th latitude line from coast to coast across North America equals 50°, con- firming it, again. - The exact latitude of the southern Aleutian islands is 1° higher, at 50+1 = 51°N. The holy Arctic Circle, at 67°N, is the northernmost line the Sun still shines at midwinter day (Sun religion). It shows king Menkaure returned via the Bering Strait, 1° below it, at 67-1= 66°N. He discovered this crossing, too, 66-51= 15° above the southern Aleutian islands. - The two mentioned continents, Africa and North America, confirm this King discovered two cros- sings. (Refs.3-6) Crossings of the Atlantic King Sahure The southern Cape Verde islands, off shore West Africa (Fig.1), are situated at 15°N (see abo- ve). The Nile Delta (Fig.1), at 30°N, encodes the sailing direction of the Southern Crossing of the Atlantic, with the wind and the current, 30° SSW. The 50th latitude line near the southern Aleutians encodes the point of arrival, Cape São Rock (the Holy Rock), Brazil, at 5°S, as well as the Fifth Dynasty. The sailing distance of 2 Moiras, or 20°, encodes the 2nd king Sahure (c.2510-2498 BC), who discovered it. The two mentioned continents, Africa and North Ame- rica, confirm this discovery by the 2nd king. - Cape Guardafuy, the east cape of Africa near the town of Caluula (Fig.1), at 12°N, confirms his 12 years of reign. This King had to return. Balanced Rock is located at c.43°N. It shows he returned from Cape Race, the SE Cape of Newfoundland, at the complementary latitude of 90-43= 47°N. The ini- tial sailing direction, with the wind and the current, is 20° ESE, and the sailing distance is 2 Moiras, or 20°, to the two islands of the West Azores. It illustrates this Crossing was disco- vered by this 2nd king, as well. The West Azores are located at the complementary latitude of the southern Aleutian islands, at 90-51= 39°N. The five islands of the Central Azores, at 38°N, confirm it happened in the Fifth Dynasty. Its complementary latitude of 90-38= 50+2= 52°N confirms the two southern crossings of the Ocean were discovered by the 2nd king Sahure of this dynasty. The Strait of Gibraltar is located in the north-western corner of Africa (Fig.1), at 36°N, where the Med meets the Atlantic. The meridian, or north-south line of Balanced Rock runs south to Lake Mead (Colorado River), at 36°N, confirming it. It refers to the circumference of the pla- net Earth of 36 Moiras, or 360° (1 Egyptian Moira= 10 moiras= 10°). It shows the 2nd king Sahure was the first king who circumnavigated the planet Earth. (Refs.7-11) King Neferirkare The Nile Delta is located at 30°N (Fig.1). It encodes the Northern Crossing of the Ocean from the Shetland Islands, via the South Cape of Greenland, to Cape Chidley, Canada, at the com- plementary latitude of 90-30= 60°N. It was discovered by the 3rd king Neferirkare (c.2498- 2478 BC). So, the third crossing of the Ocean was discovered by this 3rd king. – The meridian of Balanced Rock runs to the coast of the North Arm of Great Slave Lake, Canada, 62.5-42.5 = 20° above the Site, which confirms the 20 years of reign of this King.
  4. 4. King Unas The last discovered crossing starts at Abaco Island, northern Bahama’s, 3° below the Missis- sippi Delta, at 30-3= 27°N. The 2nd king Sahure (c.2510-2498 BC) reigned for 12 years. It shows the sailing distance to Bermuda, at 30+2= 32°N, was 12 moiras, or 12°. This island is located 9° above the holy Tropic of Cancer, at 23+9= 32°N. At midsummer day the Sun is there at right angles above (Sun religion). It shows the Crossing from Bermuda to the nine islands of the Azores was discovered by the 9th and last king Unas (c.2403-2370 BC) of this dynasty. The 40th latitude line between Afri- ca and North America (Fig.1) confirms this fourth King. The three island groups of the Azo- res (the East, Central, and West Azores) encode the long sailing distance, with the wind and the current: 3 Moiras, or 30°. The 2nd king Sahure of the Fifth Dynasty sailed from the five islands of the Central Azores to the two islands of Madeira, at 38-5= 33°N. Their latitude encodes the 33 years of reign of king Unas (c.2403-2370 BC). He discovered the island of Bermuda, 50-32= 18° below the 50- th latitude line, confirming the 18 years of reign of king Menkaure (c.2580-2562 BC), who discovered America. The 40th latitude line between Africa and North America plays an important role, because it honors the four Egyptian Kings who were involved in the discovery of America. However, it also celebrates the four discovered crossings of the Atlantic Ocean. (Refs.12-17) Fig.2 The 5th king Menkaure (c.2580-2562 BC) of the Fourth Dynasty, who discovered America via the Bering Sea. (Boston Museum of Fine Arts)
  5. 5. Religion The 18 years of reign of king Menkaure refer to the ancient civilization around the south point of the Gulf of Campeche, Mexico, at 18°N. It was the place where the Olmec civilization star- ted, the holiest place of the America’s. It is the center of the Underworld, “the Realm of the Dead, at the other side of the waters (the Ocean), in the land where the Sun sets (America).” It is located at half the latitude of the Strait of Gibraltar, at 36/2= 18°N. It is the center of the Land of Punt, at a symbolic distance of half the circumference of the planet Earth, 18 Moiras, or 180° from the Land of the Living (Egypt). The ancient Egyptian “Book of the Dead” con- tains c.180 Spells for the Afterlife, confirming it. It is the oldest book on Earth. (Refs.18-33) Date Balanced Rock is usely considered to be a completely natural, wind-carved rock formation, a geological anomality. However, we believe this is not true. It appears in antiquity the original rock was modified for its aimed function as a monument. At a variety of places rock was re-moved, especially at the base, with the goal to dress it in the shape of a coast map of the con-tinent of Africa. - What might be the date of this carved Rock? North and South America were colonies of Egypt between c.2500 and 1200 BC. Together, they formed the empire of Atlantis. It was the time period of the metal trade from America to the Old World. Copper from Upper Michigan and Isle Royale, and tin, silver and gold from Bolivia were shipped across the Ocean to the Mediterranean (Fig.1). Balanced Rock dates from this time period. In an other article we will show Balanced Rock also tells the story of the Comet Catastrophe (or Flood) in the Sixth Dynasty (c.2344 BC). Megalithic monuments of this type were usely constructed in the Twelfth Dynasty. The Site is located 42.5-30= 12.5° above the Nile Delta, encoding a probable date in the 12th or 13th Dynasty (c.2007-1794 BC or c.1793-1641 BC) (Middle Kingdom). So, the estimated date is c.1800 BC.
