    The 'Eye of the Needle' is a gate in Jerusalem too small for a camel to pass through. However, 'rope' through an eye of a sewing needle works too. remember this is metaphor, so both work. It is easier for something larger to pass through a small aperture than it is for a rich man, who is small, to enter through the vast gates of heaven. Cardona's point about translation remains valid and no one should take the English translation of any ancient text at face value. Proper academic commentaries always include author's translations and extensive textual notes on the etymology of words. I also love the EU take on mythology and its relation to religious interpretation. I only wish Cardona's books were more affordable (in Canada). Thanks for the snippet!

      @Electric Universe Eyes Thanks so much for the recommendation! As you probably know, there are a few videos of Cardona speaking on the ThunderboltsProject channel.

      Agree! I only have this one book of his. Perhaps you will enjoy this video Drawing Physics - Oersted’s Demonstration, Faraday’s Lines of Force, Maxwell’s Electromagnetic Waves - ru-clip.com/video/AVB6UHzZH7E/video.html

    Good stuff, I caught Venus in daylight about a week ago with p900, it was vert difficult, I kinda think it is a super computer for EARTH, only thinking out the box, cause I do not know

      I think Venus has much more to do with Earth's history than most give credit for. Venus - The morning star... Latin for "Lucifer", the Light Bringer and Aztec Quetzalcoatl and so many other archetypal deity names

      She has gotten me into more than you know! It was because if her we found Electric Universe Theory. And because of her, I've read all kinds of books and things like Hermeticism, Alchemy, Philosophy, etc.

    Rope...is probably correct translation...as fishermen use it daily...but Camel...just the improbability makes it more memorable ?
    On a more serious note this mistranslation continues even with pictures and pictograms....the planets and plasma events depicted are denied and written about as bulls horns or some such.
