Our research on September 11 in history uncovered many anomalies and
perhaps a significant prophetic sign.
The most startling discovery was a book written in 1981, 20 years prior
to the 2001 attacks, called "The
Birth of Christ Recalculated". The author, Dr. Ernest L. Martin, claims to
have calculated the exact date of Jesus
Christ's birth based on the celestial charts for that era. The date of
Christ's birth, based on the famous Star of
Bethlehem, is calculated to be September 11, 3 B.C.. Dr. Martin's
findings have been accepted by many
scholars, theologians, historians, and astronomers. We also note that
Jesus Christ has 11 letters. The crosses
standing in the ruins of the WTC, and the dominance of the number 11 in
the 9-11 events,
make this combination even more mysterious.
There is another significant religious event occurring about 2000 years
later on September 11, 1999.
According to Hebrew scriptures September 11, 1999 was the 6,000th
anniversary of Adam's creation, and
year 1 on the Hebrew calendar.
Most other historic events between those 2,002 years (3 B.C. -1999 A.D.) involve
either war or

events that appear to have uncanny similar timing in relation to the
9-11-2001 attacks were the 1972
Olympics, and President Bush's 1990 Gulf War Speech.
The world was introduced to terrorism at the 1972 Munich Olympic Games.
These games ended on September
11, 1972. There were 121 participating countries (11X11=121), and 11
Israeli athletes were killed. Exactly 29
years (2+9=11) after this terrorist horror ended, another more despicable
horror occurred - the September 11,
2001 terrorist attacks.
On September 11, 1990 President George Bush (Sr.) made a dramatic speech
to Congress, outlining the US
position in the Kuwait crisis, and the preliminary steps the US was
taking towards the Gulf War. Exactly
11 years later, on September 11, 2001, terrorists attacked America.
There is another oddity we noted in our research. On September 11, 1772,
about 300 Indians and 50 British
soldiers began the siege of Fort Henry. This would be the last battle of
the American Revolution. Researchers
and historians of this siege are puzzled by the meaning of a comment in
a document describing these events.
It was recorded in a letter written by Lydia Cruger (11 letters), and it
seems a fitting comment to this
section. She wrote, "The siege commenced about sun an hour high,
Monday, 11th, at all events, the 11th."
September 11th plays a key role throughout early American history
including a failed peace conference with
the British on September 11, 1776, and the first day the American flag
was used in battle at the
Battle of Brandywine on September 11, 1777.
Following are the significant events of September 11 throughout history.
biblical scholars, theologians,
historians, and astronomers say that the
Star of Bethlehem, signifying the birth of
Jesus Christ, can be calculated to within a
few hours of September 11, 3 B.C., based
on celestial charts and alignments for that
time. Historian Dr. Ernest L. Martin first
article on the subject appeared in 1976,
and in 1981 he published his research in
"The Birth of Christ Recalculated". In 1991,
the book was re-released as "The Star that
Astonished the World." Dr. Martin revealed
in his book, that the signs in the sky on
the night of Jesus' birth occurred on only
one day in 3 B.C., and they occurred
exactly on September 11, 3 B.C. between
6:15 pm and 7:49 pm EST.
Editor's Note: Dr. Ernest L. Martin died on January 16, 2002.

After taking the Americans key city, Howe thought he
was entitled to a peace settlement. The Americans,
having declared independence in July, considered
separation from England as non-negotiable. The
conference of Sept. 11, 1776, ended and the war
continued for seven years.
