STONE ANCESTOR OF BIBLE
1. Development of mankind (according to Bible) is
characterized by the existance in a certain historical period of
one nation and a single language.
General study and analysis of Karedaran treasures show:
2. Development of human characteristics in regarded as an
unbroken chain in the motion of society.
3. In the development of social and biological structures
of a society regarded as a system, basis is formed by biological
structures and superstructures - by social structures, i. e.
genetic pecularities of mankind development as a living organism
determine the essence of human characteristics' development.
They didn't change greatly in the course of centuries. The
model-standard of human characteristics in Bible as well as in
other religions, philosophical theories didn't undergo
4. Since the development of biological structures is
determined by the principle of the least activity, the
development of social structures reflects in the long run the
effect of the same principle .
5. Biological and social structures are characterized by
self-development and existence of negative feed-back. The
development of society is based upon the self-education and
6. self-education and self-training are impossible without
keeping, passing and spreading of information (knowledge,
experience, skills and abilities).
7. External materials vehicles and guardians of the
information were paper (before it - leather), but the first were
stone, rock surface, walls and ceilings of caves.
Matenadaran - the wellknown unique guardian of ancient
manuscripts is the object of pride in Armenia.But up to now
Armenians couldn't even imagine that they are the possessors of
the priceless for all the civilized world wealth-Karedaran,the
universal complex of rock carvings and drawings.The first stone
Encyclopaedia of humanity ,reflecting the evolution of the
knowledge and experience of one of the oldest nations,the first
stone University in the history of the Earth is situated on the
land of modern Armenia.
1. The structure of rock carvings, drawings is equivalent
to the structure of development of astronomy, mathematics,
trade, hunting, culture, traditions, world outlook, mode of life
etc. It is astonishing what a complete perfect command of the
methodology of cognition and the skill of knowledge passing the
Paruir Sevak facilitates the search of way towards the
understanding and reading of Grikor Narekatzi (many of his
cogitations have truly immense significance and are not
appreciated up to now). In his turn Grikor Narekatzi facilitates
the right understanding and interpretation of Bible. Bible
itself- becomes the key for the solution of human knowledge
treasure - Karedaran. We think that Bible is a living Karedaran
guide, opening on its base many of mysteries and secrets of
civilization. For instance, astonishing results in history of
development of culture, language and religion are received.
Bible and Karedaran simplify the search and reveal of
technology and sequence of rise of alphabet letters and their
graphic forms, words and word combinations. The mechanism of
language structure develpoment as means of communication is
revealing the technology of accumulation and knowledge keeping,
formation of science, Unity and intercommunication of logical
and conceptual mentality are brought to light, Psychology and
analitical activity of our ancestors come to light, some
objective regularities of social life development.
The majority of experts consider rock carvings to be of
magic sense. They are well-known all over the world and date from
Paleolit to Middle Ages and represented in caves and grottoes of
South France (Combarel, Montespan, Lasco etc.), North Spain
(Altamira, Castilio etc.), on Ural (Capov-cave), Georgia (in
grottoes of Mgvimevi), Azerbaijan (Kobustan) and in Italy,
Africa, Mongolia, Sahara, Scandinavia, Carelia and East Sibiria.
Rock carvings in Karedaran reflect in artistic form not
only economic and spiritual life of people in corresponding
period, but also represent a balanced and developed system of
accumulation, keeping, systemizing classification and passing of
2. On rock drawings there are appearances not only of the
modern Armenian alphabet but of Greek one as well. And these
drawings were there for many thousand years. We may assume that
these languages had been taught in the stone University as means
of communication. Why pricisely Armenian and Greek alphabets had
been taught ? Maybe not only for the reason that bearers of
those languages were located and lived geographically and
biologically close by, but because they are of heirs of the
common, mentioned in Bible, single language.
Our researches show that the meaning of rock carvings is
much more than that.
3. In Karedaran there are many drawings and aspects made on
a very high artistic and aesthetic level and reflecting many of
ancient Armenian legends, mythes and an epos.
4. Many of parts of fundamental biblical mythes, stories
and episodes are shown in rock drawings of Karedaran. This fact
gives us grounds to prepound a hypothesis that Bible is a hand
written model-picture of total projections of certain knowledge
and information, including those accumulated in an ancient stone
encyclopaedia of the world. Bible - "Astvatzashounch" in
translation from Armenian means "the Breath of God":
5. Karedaran is a stone text-book of morality principles as
well, teaching kindness and structure of moral precepts. Graphic
forms of good and evil, social and family relations, love and
care, relations with nature, earth and the animal kingdom are
shown in surprisingly simple and intelligible in their form rock
6. Decoding of Karedaran is not an easy task. However,
there is a key to this task. The nature presented us with the
divine triple - Bible, Grikor Narekatzi (the Book of Mournful
songs) and finally - Paruir Sevak - the poet - philosopher and
thinker of our time.
In Karedaran we find:
technology of training and education of ancient people
We realize that complex investigation and system analysis
of thousands* of pictures is a work beyond the strength of a
little group of scientists and specialists of the "Search"
Centre. Karedaran demands the attention on behalf of young
Armenian State on the one hand and of international scientific
world-on the other.
principles and models of human characteristics' development
intercommunication of biological and social structures, the
dynamics of development of intellectual ability of human being,
the significance of trade and science etc.
1. With the help of Armenian Foreign Office to put on a
suggestion within the framework of the United Nations (UNESCO)
to examine the issue of recreation of the show encyclopaedia of
human life on the territory of historical Armenia and declare
that territory cultural and protected monument, the birthright
of the world.
Knowledge in culture, science and art knows no bounds but
have all mankind sense and meaning. We think and hope that the
first President of free and independent Armenia can and must
declare to the world the program of recreation of stone treasure
of knowledge and draw the attention of politicians, scientists
and specialists to this problem. In our view it will promote to
the birth of Armenia and its role in human development.
2. To organize an International Commission for the
development and realization of the program of Karedaran's
recreation. To organize an International Fund in Armenia with
branches in countries possessing complexes of rock carvings and
3. To create attached to the International Fund an
scientific institution for the study of stone Encyclopaedia of
the Earth civilization and a museum of rock art.
We appeal to all goverments scientific organizations, men
of art, science, technicque, culture and religion to promote to the
recreation of Karedaran. Remember, that Karedaran is situated
near the biblical mountain Ararat, which guards tree
treasures of human up to now - i. e. precisely knowledge that belongs to
Armenia is not only the country of chemical plants and the atomic
power-station. First of all Armenia is the country of culture
science and art. It's a country where men of genius created,
lived great thinkers, philosophers and artists of the Earth.
Imagine, what would the humanity loose if in one time all, the
copies of Bible in all languages were distroyed. Karedaran is
thousands of rock carvings, drawings, petrogriphs, writings and
contains unique information, knowlege and experience in one, the
only available for all people language - in the language of
* It is more than there are pages in Bible. Besides,
information in graphic form occupies less space.
