As far as possible, Anchor Stone strives to make public all information available about the discoveries of Ron Wyatt. The only material we hold back is information that would in some way jeopardize our ability to pursue our ongoing exploration and investigation, which might place some of our associates in danger, or in cooperation with legal authorities. At the same time we work very hard to confirm all information to make sure that what we do share is accurate to the best of our knowledge. This is why I am writing this article today.
There has always been a group of critics that have circulated inaccurate information and false reports about Ron and his work. Over the years we have come to expect this. However, since his death some of the people that were originally involved in his work have begun to mislead people in regards to certain subjects. They have done this in a number of ways. One is to simply leave out certain information which by its omission can lead to a false conclusion. Another method is to release new information and then claim that this is something that Ron Wyatt always believed.
Shortly after Ron’s death I received a call from a friend who told me that one of Ron’s past associates was telling people that we should immediately stop talking about chromosomes in relation to blood tests associated with the Ark of the Covenant discovery. The only explanation given was that there was new information that would be forthcoming later. However the explanation did not come in a timely manner and months went by. In the meantime it was being strongly implied that this new information would somehow overshadow or possibly invalidate the information Ron had shared publicly about the chromosome count of the blood found on the Ark of the Covenant.
After making a few phone calls I found out that the new information was the somatid theory that has now been on the wyattmuseum web site for almost 2 years. The gist of this theory is that all living things have within them a “spark of life” and that this spark is evidenced by what are called somatids. Without going into an extensive history on somatids I will simply say that a man by the name of Gaston Naessens, who developed the dark-field microscope, discovered these amazing little objects. This special type of microscope is required to see somatids in a sample. Somatids are not visible with a standard laboratory microscope. There are currently a number of theories as to exactly what they are and the mechanism by which they function but what seems clear is that these objects are found within the bodily fluids of living organisms.
During his many public talks on the subject of the blood sample that he took, Ron often mentioned that when the blood was tested it was found to be “alive”. Other times he said it a bit differently; he stated that when viewed under a microscope the blood of Christ was “alive”. Over the years many have wanted to understand what Ron meant by this.
The way somatids have been applied to the Ark of the Covenant discovery is that WAR has claimed that they took a sample of the blood of Christ, rehydrated it and found within the rehydrated sample a number of somatids. They then submit that this is proof that the blood of Christ is alive and that this is what Ron meant when he stated that the blood was found to be alive when examined under a microscope.
This new information was released after Ron’s death, although the somatid test was performed before Ron’s death. I will point out here that Ron was talking about the blood being alive long before this somatid test was performed. In fact I have been unable to find (and I would welcome a copy if someone can provide one) a single instance when Ron mentioned somatids when talking about the blood tests. Perhaps he did but I have not heard it.
However I have several examples of where Ron ties the concept of the blood being alive to the presence of living white blood cells within the sample and ultimately to the results of the chromosome test that was performed. This is also consistent with our personal conversations on the subject.
So here we have a theory about somatids being promoted as what Ron Wyatt really meant when he talked about live blood, while at the same time we have been told to “stop talking about chromosomes”. Why is this happening? And further, what difference does it make? Cannot both be true?
I personally have no doubt that both are true. The blood of Christ, which is alive, would have somatids in it. However the presence of somatids does not prove anything. Every person has somatids in their blood. So the blood sample shown on the wyattmuseum web site could be anyone’s blood. But that is not all. A number of researchers tell us that somatids are also found in freshly squeezed fruit and vegetable juice! So does that prove that the fruit juice in question is alive? On one level it does…. but is this the concept that Ron was trying to share? I don’t think so.
When I began to speak publicly on the discoveries of Ron Wyatt, one subject always caused me to feel intimidated. It was the subject of the blood of Christ and the chromosome test that Ron spoke about. Even if I did not mention it myself, people in the audience would invariably ask about it and expected an answer. Because I was lacking in information about chromosomes and this type of blood test I discussed the subject with Dr. Eugene Dunkley who is an expert in genetics. Here is part of what I learned.
In order to perform a chromosome count (karyotype) test on human blood you must be able to isolate and culture living white blood cells. This is because white blood cells are the only cells in the blood that carry genetic material. These cells must also be alive because they have to be cultured so they mature and divide. At a certain stage of cell division the chromosomes within the cell become visible under a microscope. When this stage is reached a dye or chemical is added that stops the growth cycle. Then the chromosomes are counted by sight through a microscope.
As I stated earlier, the blood must contain living white blood cells. Best case scenario, blood cells can live outside of the body approximately two weeks. A sample older than this would not contain living cells so there would be no way to perform a karyotype test. This is the reason Ron so specifically pointed out that the blood of Christ was alive. Even though the dried blood sample was 2000 years old, when rehydrated and examined under a microscope, it contained living cells…. including white blood cells. The microscope used in the lab that tested the blood was not a dark-field microscope and so any somatids present would not even be visible!
The very fact that the blood of Christ was alive after 2 millennia is nothing short of a miracle. However it is in line with Scripture which speaks of Christ in Psalms 16:10 this way, “For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.” Since the Bible tells us in Leviticus 17:11 that, “….the life of the flesh is in the blood.”, we see that the true blood of Christ would be expected to be as alive today as it was 2000 years ago.
But the question still must be addressed, “What difference does it make, chromosomes or somatids? Both testify to the blood of Christ being alive in harmony with Scripture.”
That is true, but to promote the somatids, as WAR has encouraged, to the exclusion of the chromosomes leaves out a very important testimony; one that Ron Wyatt believed and I believe is one of the most important testimonies of the blood. The results of the chromosome test conclusively affirms the identity of this man as the Christ because it testifies that he was the product of a virgin birth!
Under normal circumstances all human beings have 46 chromosomes…. 23 from their mother and 23 from their father. There are 22 pairs of autosomes which determine things such as our height, hair and eye color, etc. The 23rd pair is the sex determinant pair. They consist of either “X” or “Y” chromosomes. The mother only has “X” chromosomes. The father has both “X” and “Y” chromosomes.
If the sex-determinant pair is matched “X-X”, the child is a female. If “X-Y”, the child is a male. Thus we see that the single chromosome provided by the father in this chromosome pair determines the gender of the child. When the blood sample Ron Wyatt took from the crack in the rock ceiling above the Mercy Seat was tested, it contained 24 chromosomes…. 23 from the mother and one “Y” chromosome from the father, 24 chromosomes.
As Dr. Eugene Dunkley states in his article on the genetics of the blood of Christ, 24 chromosomes is exactly what would be expected if a man was born of a virgin. There are 23 chromosomes from the mother and a “Y” chromosome from a father. But that father cannot be a human father because the other 22 chromosomes on the father’s side are missing. Therefore the existence of a “Y” chromosome is at the very least a mystery, if not a miracle.
But there is more. In the 12 years since I first heard of the work of Ron Wyatt, I have listened to his critics say some pretty incredible things in an attempt to dissuade people from believing in his discoveries. But there is one incredible claim that specifically applies to this discussion.
Ron Wyatt found the Ark of the Covenant in 1982. Over the next 17 years, until his death in 1999, Ron spent much time in the caves in that area of the Calvary escarpment. Critics have actually claimed that if Ron ever brought out an “Ark of the Covenant” or a set of stone tablets claiming they were the Ten Commandment stones, the likelihood was that he manufactured them in that cave during those 17 years.
Incredible, huh? But you know something, a lot of people will choose to believe that. And even if they don’t want to believe that, it will raise an element of doubt in their mind that could sour the testimony that God wants to give when He brings these things forth. The truth is, since no one knows exactly what the real Ark of the Covenant looks like, it is possible that someone could make a fake ark and pass it off as the real thing.
I don’t know where they would obtain that much gold but it is within the realm of possibility….. especially if the devil is helping you. And it is also possible to make a fake set of Ten Commandments for the same reasons. So when these things are revealed, how can the discovery be authenticated?
We have seen recently, with some claimed Bible archaeology discoveries (James Ossuary), that ancient artifacts can be faked and that people are very skeptical if the evidence of authenticity is not iron-clad. So how can the discovery of the Ark and tables of stones be authenticated? BY THE BLOOD!
Clever men can make a fake ark and deceive people. They can make a fake set of commandment stones and pass them off as the real thing. But even with today’s technology men cannot make fake human blood. The blood found on the Mercy Seat of the Ark of the Covenant, tested in a forensic manner, will provide the authenticity needed to convince even the most skeptical BUT honest-hearted critic.
I submit that when God gave the Ark discovery to Ron Wyatt, at the same time He provided the key to authenticating it beyond any reasonable doubt. This was necessary because this will be part of God’s last plea to a dying world…. that by His blood He has atoned for our sins and that this atonement was placed upon the Mercy Seat as an eternal living testimony of what He did at Calvary.
Please don’t tell us to stop talking about the chromosomes. If we don’t talk about them, I believe the very stones will cry out!
