The only way I think anyone would ever entertain the idea of reading a book like this, is that said person has broken free from the shackles of our education system...
I don't remember who made the following statement..
Don't let all your education get in the way of your learning..
This book is that rarefied air...that we all need.. This brings together such diverse topics as the demonization of the number 13, the myth of a year and a day and why it is in so many fairy tales...makes understandable why the Kennewick Man found in Washington State has been suppressed...the many neanderthal cave paintings in France dating from 50000 years ago and their incredible technique, orthodoxy doesn't even allow for the fact that Neanderthal could speak... this book looks beyond the genesis of our quotidian religious beliefs that center around a Saviour sacrificed and resurrected, christianity, dionysian cults and Zorastriasm to see that these Sun Cults were actuallly of a much later date and that these Sun-Worship religions/cults were superimposed on a much older Moon-Worship cults..
As a kid the fact that Easter is the first Sunday after the Full Moon after vernal equinox always bothered me. Why?
This incongrous fact sitting in the middle of the livingroom, is what basically set me on this journey to find out what religion was really all about..When I was 9, I realized religion was nonsense, but couldn't worshippers see that religion was a means to control the masses..As George Carlin so eloquently says..
Politicians hide behind three things: the flag, the Bible and Children..
Easter, on closer examinatin is Eostre, the AngloSaxon goddess of spring, so the orthodox Church brought this into the fold as a way of pacifying the Nature worshippers..but finally Easter is Sun Worship grafted onto Moon Worship.. The 13 comes from Moon worships as there are 13 sidereal lunations of 28 days giving 364 for a year..and thus the year and a day fairy tales...Moon moves 13 degrees a day..The 13 paradigm of astrology with a Leader and his 12 assistants ..early christian/church elders needed to get people away from the adoration of the moon and its 13 lunations thus they demonized it with "unlucky 13"..why on earth would lower mammals come into estreus only seasonly where man would sync up with up the new moons....Jesus and his 12 disciples, Arthur and his 12 knights...its all here.. Throw everything you've ever learned about anthropology, archaelogy and psychology out the window and perhaps start to wonder why this info has been suppressed...
