Los Angeles| A 53-year old man who spent six days in the coma after presumably being assaulted in August, still has no memory of his former life and can only speak… in ancient Hebrew!

The man was found unconscious in a California motel on August 9. He had with him a duffel bag of exercise clothes, a backpack and tennis rackets. He carried a California identification card and a Social Security card, both identifying him as Jamal Miller.

When he woke up in the Cedars-Sinai hospital days later, he had no memory of his past and could only speak in an unknown language. For three days, the puzzle remained complete until a rabbi visiting a friend in a nearby room, identified the tongue as ancient Hebrew and was able to communicate with the poor man.

“His memories don’t match his former life, at all,” says Dr. James Mackenzie, who is responsible for Mr. Miller’s case. “For some reason, he seems to have lost all his previous knowledge, but also to have gained the memories of an ancient Jewish fisherman. He speaks ancient Hebrew, talks of fishes and boats… I have never seen anything like this.”


Mr. Miller seems to believe that he is an ancient Jewish fisherman, and calls himself “Nehemiah, son of Jehozadak”.

Dr. Mackenzie believes a traumatic event may have triggered the confusion. After consulting some speech-language pathologists, neurologists, neuropsychologists, and psychologists, he was able to determine that Mr. Miller’s memory problems might be caused by a combination of two relatively rare disorders called Transient Global Amnesia and Foreign Language Syndrome.

The Foreign language syndrome occurs after a serious accident or injury to the brain which renders victims unconscious. When the patients come around they find themselves talking in completely different languages that they weren’t able to speak prior to the incident. This may continue for only a temporary period; alternatively some patients may find themselves speaking this completely new language for a prolonged period of time.

“This is one of the most extreme case of amnesia and memory disorders that I have ever heard about” says Dr. Mackenzie. “It’s impossible to tell if he will regain his past memories, and if his “new” memories will disappear. This is a really unique case, as people with Foreign Language Syndrome usually learn a language they had previously been exposed to, so it’s really hard to predict what could happen in Mr. Miller’s case.”

Why do CO2 lag behind temperature?

71% of the earth is covered by ocean, water is a 1000 times denser than air and the mass of the oceans are 360 times that of the atmosphere, small temperature changes in the oceans doesn’t only modulate air temperature, but it also affect the CO2 level according to Henry’s Law.

The reason it is called “Law” is because it has been “proven”!

“.. scientific laws describe phenomena that the scientific community has found to be provably true ..”

That means, the graph proves CO2 do not control temperature, that again proves (Man Made) Global Warming, now called “Climate Change” due to lack of … Warming is – again – debunked!
