BOX 120366 Arlington, TX 76012-0366 BBS # (817) 346-1038 Sysop - John Hill This non-profit group is headed by Mr. Vendyl Jones (inspiration for the movie character - Indiana Jones). The IJCR seeks to establish a mutual understanding between followers of the Jewish traditions and Christian traditions. The Laws of No'ach (Noah) preceded the New Testament and are the basis for the Ten Commandments later given to Moses on Mt. Sinai. We wish to thank Mr. David Fasold, discoverer of the true site of the Ark of Noah, (as verified by the Turkish government), for acquainting us with Vendyl and his group. Mr. Jones and a dedicated group of fellow researchers are currently (as of November 15, 1989) in Israel in search of two items, The Ashes of the Red Heifer and the Ark of the Covenant. The Ashes of the Red Heifer are the remains of a ritual sacrifice which are used to purify water and those who have been in physical contact with the dead, among other things. When the original Ashes are recovered, it will signal the re-establishment of the Sanhedrin (the Jewish ruling council) as well as spur the building of the Third Temple. The Ark of the Covenant is the "abode of the Living G-d". There has been much speculation about the Ark throughout history but especially in modern times as Man's understanding of electricity and nuclear forces increases. The Bible is quite specific in the construction details of the Ark and there are reports that a copy was built by a northern university, (we have heard the University of Michigan). That copy was destroyed shortly thereafter due to the accumulation of lethal voltages. George Van Tassel based his "Integratron" in Arizona after the Ark. Van Tassel believed that his device will rejuvenate the body and possibly alter time. It is currently still after construction following Van Tassels' death. The Ark of the Covenant appears to be a very large Leyden jar. Other possibilities include : 1) an Orgone box (possibly to accumulate and store the life force of sacrifices made in its presence), 2) a free energy device (based on a radioactive nature as depicted by the infliction of boils and pyles on the Philistines) 3) or a radio communication device with some higher/other race or being. We will provide more details on these subjects as our understanding evolves. You can also keep up with what is going on by linking to the IJCR BBS as listed above or KeelyNet (214) 324-3501.
