Regarding Dr Troglodyte's question:
"Hello Tom M Culhane: Over the past three weeks you have made numerous references to the term “Noah's Arc”; would you please explain your definition of this expression?"
Hello Dr Troglodyte. "Noah's Arc" is my name for the grid pattern I am referring to in the title of this thread: "Grid Pattern Orients European Cities to Great Pyramid and North Pole". If you click on the link below and scroll all the way to the bottom you should see an image of it I've hand drawn.
As you can see it's an arc or circle, with an equidistant cross in the center, the "Celtic Cross" pattern. A picture is worth a thousand words as they say; maybe I should have begun this thread with it.
As you can see it has four cardinal points, and those three little pyramids in the middle of the southeast quadrant represent the Giza pyramids. I've shown with map programs they divide that quadrant evenly. Extending the idea into the northwest, the dividing line would hit Trondheim, the ancient capital of Norway. Dividing the other two quadrants is the Mountain of Love at "Russia's Stonehenge", Arkaim in the northeast, and Pena de los Enamorados or Lover's Rock in southern Spain for the southwest point. So in other words dividing each of the four quadrants evenly creates the pattern of an 8-fold-year calendar, the ancient calendar used by Celts and other "pagans". I've called it the world's largest stone circle and I believe it is.
