Call it whatever you want, but according to researchers it scientifically proven. It’s an extremely rare astronomical phenomenon, it did not happen again after 33 AD for 600 years. It is an astronomical discovery that one that cannot take lightly.
On the 3rd of April 33, the date on which researchers agree that the crucifixion of Jesus took place, Saturn, Uranus, Jupiter, Earth and Venus lined up and took form of a crucified man.
The discovery of this curious phenomenon was made possible thanks to Miguel Antonio Fiol, a historian at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
According to a press release published by the Christian Newswire, an illustration released on Monday depicts the planets Saturn, Uranus, Jupiter, Earth and Venus aligned on an orrery model to form what looks like Jesus Christ on the cross «with the head, the hands spread out and the legs together in accurate positioning, rotation and on a galactic scale.»
“There are quite e few studies which indicate with precision the date that Jesus Christ died: The bible, Calendars, Astronomical conditions and even geology,” said Miguel Antonio Fiol.
«Those planets rotate as opposites or mirrors, like your left and right hand and your feet,» said Miguel Antonio Fiol, the researcher who made the discovery. An illustration published to show the discovery shows what position the planets adopted during that time, 2000 years ago. Thus it can be seen that the rings of Saturn, on top of the planetary figure, have the appearance of a halo or a crown, reminiscent of the crown of thorns on Jesus’ head.
Likewise, Uranus and Jupiter represent hands, while the feet would be formed by Earth and Venus.
«Even at first glance I knew it looked like the crucifixion,» Mr. Fiol stated. «But it took time to uncover all the incredible parallels. According to the historian, the planetary alignment began in mid-March and lasted until the middle of April in the year 33. This same alignment occurs once per cycle of 333 years, which means that it has happened six times, between the year 0 and 2000.
«It’s hard to put it into the coincidence category,» Mr. Fiol told the Gospel Herald in an emailed statement. «This unique alignment happened for only a month in 33 A.D. and then not again for 600 years. So rare is it that models show me it won’t happen again from now until around the year 2900.»
