Thank you. I have copied and intend to google those book titles and check if they're on the internet. I'd like to take a look see.

I'll bet the name Kal is in some of them just as Lord Ka'ls name is in about every religion I've checked.

Kal Ha Aretz is the Jewish name for the lord of this world. His name is even in Islam.

The Illuminati is on the internet, Did you know that? They have much to say about LORD KAL.

I'll bet his name is mentioned in the most ancient books.

Ever wonder why the Christian God is so often called Lord and his true name Yahweh (or appriximations) is translated LORD since church authorities think we're not worthy to pronounce it. Now, Lord, really isn't that high a title is it?

Just me, thinking out loud.

Did you know that the word God - going to origin etc. simply means "Mighty One". Could even be a governor. But I don't think OBummer qualifies.

I've visited Egypt and seen some of these texts, such a shame some have been vandalised over the years. They really are the most remarkable sight, particularly the Valley of the Kings.
