Take Another Look at Your Clock
Ample proof that the Earth upon which we live and breathe is flat lies allaround us. Take, for example, the clock. From ancient times people haveused various forms of clocks to measure time. Let us examine the origin of the clock, and those elements of the heavens that have inspired the earliestdevelopment of an instrument we all take for granted. The hour hand wasinstigated by the movement of the universaltimekeeper, Lord Surya the demigod of the Sun. Nextthe minute hand represents the movement of LordChandra, the Moon. The second hand complies withthe changing ascendants or
the rising signs thatare continually coming up in the East. Finally, the flatround body of the clock represents the Earth.
