I have a question for all those here who have Oak Island theories. How do you explain the position of the Money Pit? It's not midway between the two coves, which would be logical when flood tunnels were made from the Pit to each cove, and it's not on the highest ground, which would make the Pit deeper and further from the shoreline, thus harder to find. There doesn't seem to be any apparent reason to put it at that particular spot. So how do you explain that it is there instead of somewhere else? In fact, why is it not on the large main portion of the island, which has nice stable slate bedrock, instead of on the East end which has very dangerously unstable anhydrite?
In my opinion, if a person can't provide some kind of good reason for the position of the Pit, the rest of their theory is highly questionable. I say that spot was used because it was at a particular point of a large landscape based geometric construction which is actually centered on an unusually shaped formation of islands several miles South of Oak Island. Certain lines extended from that main geometric construction happen to intersect perfectly at the Money Pit site. This geometry was designed by the Rosicrucians of the late 16th-early 17th century, based on the constellation Cassiopeia, and is contained in an illustration from one of their important texts produced in 1618, as well as the Poussin painting Les Bergers d'Arcadie, which shows the constellations which surround Cassiopeia, the shepherdess being Andromeda, the shepherd in red being Perseus, the shepherd in blue being Cepheus and the shepherd in white being Cygnus. The exact geometric shape which is marked out by the Oak Island Cross is also contained in the same Rosicrucian print. I have to think this is a little more than mere coincidence.
To discredit this theory and thereby make yours appear more plausible, all you have to do is provide a credible alternative explanation for the position of the Pit and for the Oak Island Cross, which I can show to have been derived from the Kabbalistic figure known as the Tree of Life, a figure which was important to the Rosicrucians.
If your theory happens to involve pirates, you'll have to explain why a pirate would have an interest in constructing the Oak Island Cross. Though I started this post by emphasizing the reason for the position of the Pit, the subject of the Cross came up and reminded me that anyone with an Oak Island theory would also have to be able to explain THAT too. So that is my challenge. Explain both the position of the treasure pit and the reasoning behind the presence of the Oak Island Cross, if you can. If you can't do this, I really can't take your theories seriously.
Here's the graphic evidence for my theory. I shouldn't have to explain it verbally. Click on the thumbnails for full size.
