Astronomical guides to temple-construction

Today's religions appear to act as allegories for lost - 5,000 years and older - technologies of calendar-keeping, and temple-building.

For example, Audrey Fletcher, writing in 1999, of the history of the South Australia Port Adelaide Masonic Centre, built in 1928, in "Freemasonry: The Legacy of the Ancient Egyptians" proposed the Masonic movement formed the relic of lost Egyptian astronomical knowledge, connected to calendar setting; and temple-building. For example Fletcher noted the Masonic symbol of the "a set-square, by definition set at an angle of 90 degrees, (was) the Ancient Egyptian hieroglyph for "Pharaoh". The word "Pharaoh" which we use today actually comes from the Hebrew, meaning "Sun". Incredibly "Par" or "Peor" also means "Opening" and "Mountain". The words "Sun" and "Opening" and "Mountain" are immediately associated with Precession of the Equinoxes. T-square is an Ancient Egyptian hieroglyph for "Tau" which means "sacred gate" or "sacred opening". Multiple Taus form a temple: for example Stone Henge. The Triple Tau is the symbol for the Temple of Jerusalem".
