However, when the 17th century ended, countless people were fleeing from Europe to avoid persecution and some headed for the new world or America as we know it nowadays. Indeed Cave of Kelpius is a mysterious cave in Philadelphia, located in the dense woods really weird connection to a secret society and even extraterrestrials. Cave of Kelpius is built by a man named Johannes Kelpius, famous as “Monk of the Ridge”. Johannes Kelpius was born in Halwagen, Germany, near Denndorf about 1673, and he was an astronomer and a scientist, had a Ph. D degree. He has different interest, but his most liked action is to looking at the sky through a telescope for bizarre arrival. He was extremely talented and far ahead of his times in terms of his knowledge in technology which cause people thought that he was a magician.
Well, if you look cave outside closely, you’ll observer it is built with extra care with a nice rusted door hinge, however the other is broken. The cave was built in 1694 and as anticipated, it is dark inside, but had a fireplace and chimney. Kelpius use to make his experiments alone in this cave. The cave roof is arched not flat, which shows how well constructed this Cave is? The inside of cave, an earthen floor and cross on walls a popular symbol of Satan. Therefore, other strange symbols and codes painted on the walls. Thus, no other artifacts or anything, but most of belongings of Kelpius, carefully taken away and ultimately given to Benjamin Franklin who was founding father of U.S and a great astronomer as well.
The purpose of Cave building in Philadelphia is interesting, when Kelpius sailed all the way from Europe in a severe weather, actually convinced by a woman from sky, would be landing in Philadelphia. Though, the prediction was not only based on his astronomical observation but also the verses in Revelation 12:14 through 12:16. It talks about a woman who had wings and gives birth to a baby son who was destined to rule the world. Therefore, Kelpius reaches at Philadelphia with 40 men; all of them were college graduates. This huge numbers of astronomers and scientists has been observing the stars and planets. They wanted to extract information of extraterrestrial landing would take place precisely, where this Cave is now situated.
