The 'Craft'

"The Beginning of Masonry" By Frank C. Higgins (The theorems of the sacred geometry of the ancient philosophers are not included in the works of Euclid, even though subject to the same mechanical laws he expounds. This "sacred geometry," which is the branch underlying all Masonic symbolism, was not intended for the purpose of teaching Operative Masons how to make truly square corners, but for the far more noble and glorious purpose of demonstrating the unity of God, the likeness of the human mind to the divine mind, the omnipotence and omnipresence of God, and the immortality of the soul.) -circa 1916- see Sacred Geometry

"In Plato's Timaeus, there appears the earliest known equation of the Creator with the 'Architect of the Universe'. The Creator, in the Timaeus, is called 'tekton', meaning 'craftsman' or 'builder'. 'Arche-tekton' thus denoted 'master craftsman' or 'master builder'. For Plato, the 'arche-tekton' crafted the cosmos by means of geometry."
- Baigent & Leigh, The Temple and the Lodge

For those of you who are uninitiated; Hiram Abiff is a symbolic character in Masonry. In the degree work, he is a Master of his craft. He is said to be the architect of Solomons Temple which was built in 964 BC. These skills were considered 'secret' and sacred because they were given to man by a God that loved mankind and wanted him to be able to take care of his family. The skills also provided shelter and the digging of canals and the building of dikes provided water to the crops they planted. They built walls and ziggurats and temples to the gods which are the oldest man-made structures in the world.

Sacred geometry is geometry that is sacred to the observer or discoverer. This meaning is sometimes described as being the language of the God of the religion of the people who discovered or used it. Sacred geometry can be described as attributing a religious or cultural value to the graphical representation of the mathematical relationships and the design of the man-made objects that symbolize or represent these mathematical relationships. The golden ratio was often used in the design of Greek and Roman architecture. A contemporary usage of the term describes a supposed re-discovered mathematical order to the intrinsic nature of the Universe that is represented in crop circles and in ancient architecture such as the Great Pyramid and Stonehenge.

see Sacred Geometry,
and Sacred Geometry in Crop Circles. "Know, oh, brother..., that the study of sensible geometry leads to skill in all practical arts, while the study of intelligible geometry leads to skill in the intellectual arts because this science is one of the gates through which we move to the knowledge of the essence of the soul, and that is the root of all knowledge'
- from the Rasa'il by the Brotherhood of Purity, translated by S.H. Nasr.

The skills provided income as they still do today. The workers had different classes or grades of skill. A beginner was called an Apprentice. The next level was called Fellowcraft. And finally the highest level of a Master.

With the advent of X-ray photography science has discovered that the physical structure of elements are governed by a patterned array of intervals surrounding a central node, or as Masons know it, the "point within a circle". The general assumption that the nature of matter is fundamentally composed of particles is rapidly giving way to the concept that the underlying patterns of the material world are geometric wave forms. The irony here is that by choosing to examine reality through geometry many ancient cultures find themselves close to the stance now adopted by modern science, and vice versa.

Little wonder, then, that sacred geometry was so important to the temple builders. And since the universe was created by God it theoretically followed that to embed physical structures with the ratios of creation the universe could be mirrored. In so doing, temples became doorways into the inner workings of the physical world and the inner world of consciousness. This interface would enable anyone so predisposed to integrate oneself with the gods.

The History of a forgotten time -
What do we believe, the bible or the historical evidence?

Surpressed writings?; The Apocrypha confirms the answer is a resounding YES! But Masonry has known these secrets for hundreds of years. We do not teach these secrets. We just seek them privately on our own as we are instructed to do by the oath. Now, not everybody chooses to do this. It's up to the individual. Some seek philosophy, some seek to investigate old religious beliefs and practices, particularly those of ancient Egypt. Yet others research Enoch and the occult (secret) teachings and research the ancient Mystery Schools lessons that existed in 300 BC and before. But most important of all we seek the secrets of science. In science God reveals all his secrets.

With scientific discoveries, opposition to religious tyranny and the quest for knowledge and truth clearly defined; we began an 8 year quest to find out what the real Masonic secrets were and why, amoung other things, the Masonic 'focus' of the 24th degree has the words; "The "inner" ( solar ) mysteries of Osiris, (which is uniquely Egyptian) Thammuz, (A Phoenician deity) Bel, Atys, Dionusos (which is Greek), Cama, and Mithras (Roman) are then rehearsed." Why were all these pagan deities mentioned in the degree work?

What are the Origional Masonic Secrets?

Matthew 13:35, "I will utter things which have been kept secret from the foundation of the world."

Before we get into the ancient archives that tell us the facts about Adam and Eve, Cain and Abel, we want to begin with several 'banned' books that were left out of the Bible: These books obviously contain material that the church banned and didn't want the people to read. Our question is Why? Was there something the church wanted to be kept hidden from the people? Here is a link to the Apocrypha list. The word "apocryphal" was first applied, in a positive sense, to writings which were kept secret because they were the vehicles of esoteric knowledge considered too profound or too sacred to be disclosed to anyone other than the initiated.

Using the King James Bible as a starting point: We find in Genesis that Adam and Eve were given 'knowledge' by eating a metaphorical 'apple'. (a figure of speech) "When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining "WISDOM", she took some and ate it."
Most researchers agree, there were no apple trees in (Eden) Mesopotamia at the time....

So how do we explain how Eve really gained wisdom? In fact, what is wisdom? According to the Lost books of Adam and Eve and other sources, Eve became 'aware' of herself, 'conscious'.

Lost Books 4:8 "And Adam said to Eve, "Look at thine eyes, and at mine, which afore beheld angels in heaven, praising; and they, too, without ceasing.

Lost Books 4:9 "But now we do not see as we did: our eyes have become of flesh; they cannot see in like manner as they saw before."

Lost Books 4:10 "Adam said again to Eve, "What is our body to-day, compared to what it was in former days, when we dwelt in the garden?"

These were 'bodies' of 'soul' or 'light' not flesh. When Eve gained 'wisdom' her body became flesh - no more of a Heavenly nature.

Lost Books 8:2 " Then God the Lord said unto Adam, "When thou wast under subjection to Me, thou hadst a bright nature within thee, and for that reason couldst thou see things afar off. But after thy transgression thy bright nature was withdrawn from thee; and it was not left to thee to see things afar off, but only near at hand; after the ability of the flesh; for it is brutish."

Lost Books 13:7 "But when I heard of thy transgression, I deprived thee of that bright light. Yet, of My mercy, I did not turn thee into darkness, but I made thee thy body of flesh, over which I spread this skin, in order that it may bear cold and heat.

Exerpt from the Lost Books: The version which we give here is the work of unknown Egyptians (the lack of historical allusion makes it impossible to date the writing). Parts of this version are found in the Talmud, the Koran, and elsewhere, showing what a vital rôle it played in the original literature of human wisdom.
The Egyptian author first wrote in Arabic (which may be taken as the original manuscript) and that found its way farther south and was translated into Ethiopic. For the present English translation we are indebted to Dr. S. C. Malan, Vicar of Broadwindsor, who worked from the Ethiopic edition edited by Dr. E. Trumpp, Professor at the University of Munich. Dr. Trumpp had the advantage of the Arabic original, which makes our bridge over the gap of many centuries a direct one.

The reading of these books is an adventure. You will find the mind of man fed by the passions, hopes, fears of new and strange earthly existence rioting, unrestrained, in the zest of self-expression. You roam in the realms of mythology where swiftly the aspects of nature assume manifold personalities, and the amorphous instinct of sin takes on the grotesqueries of a visible devil.

Consciousness; 'Aware of themselves as being alive. A state of being characterized by sensation, emotion, volition, and thought. The upper level of mental life which the person is aware as contrasted with unconsious processes, like an animal.' Knowledge makes Adam and Eve equals, so the god himself provides clothing - "garments" for them as stated in Genesis 3:21.

Their nakedness has nothing to do with shame. Read it again - Genesis 2:25. They realize they are not like the animals which do not wear cloths. "Garments" also refer to Knowledge. The animals cannot speek or think. The clergy ignores this basic instinct and basic knowledge we have of ourselves. Consciousness!

The verse says, "You will be like God". But being 'like the god' makes Adam and Eve equals. This is the real reason this god throws them out of the garden. It also makes them intelligent... Literiate...able to comprehend, able to understand. Flesh. God is both 'flesh' and 'soul'....but he is also something else. That something else is unexplainable, incomprehendable.

Being equal to 'god' caused the god to loose control over them. They are able to distinguish right from wrong, to think for themselves and determine their own destiny...and that in effect is exactly what the verse says, Genesis 3:22 "The man has now become like one of US, knowing good from evil". See it again in Genesis 1:26. "Let US make man in OUR image, in OUR likeness."

Adam and Eve were NOT like the animals anymore. Since the 'spoken word' takes language skills, understanding and the correct vocal cords, Eve and Adam were able to understand and converse with God. What language were they speeking at the time?
And where did Cain's wife come from?

Lost books 5:1 "THEN Adam and Eve entered the cave, and stood praying, in their own tongue, unknown to us, but which they knew well."There it is again, "US".

So who is 'US' ? Since this throws a real 'monkey wrench' into understanding what it means, we've put it on a seperate page...Forbidden f1.

This from the gospel of Judas, "God caused knowledge to be given to Adam (ADAMU) and those with him, so that the kings of Choas and the underworld might not lord it over them".
By the time you finish this site, you will understand this.

The first thing we need to consider is combining science with the scriptures? Will we get a clearer picture of the ancient past? The world's oldest religions actually did this. At the same time they worshiped a god or gods (more than one). What we found will change history and in some cases it already has. Archaeological evidence concludes the 10 plagues of Egypt and the drowning of Egyptian troops were due to the natural pheonemon of a volcano and a tsunami caused by an earthquake. How did Moses know a volcano was going to erupt?

This forbidden book is called the Slavery of Adam and Eve. It describes a "God" of the Earth but this god is described as the 'Devil'. And Adam wrote: "Who is lord of the earth, to the same do I belong and my children." "And for fifteen days continuously we entreated. Then we heard Michael the archangel and Joel praying for us, and Joel the archangel was commanded by the Lord, and he took a seventh part of paradise and gave it to us. also see.. Books of Adam and Eve. Here Seth is given God's secrets and sacraments....

Adam says to Seth, "And lo! a word concerning thee came upon me and the Lord said to me, 'Since thy days were fashioned, thou hast been created with a love of knowledge; therefore there shall not be taken from thy seed for ever the (right) to serve Me.' And when I heard these words. I threw myself on the earth and adored the Lord God and said, 'Thou art the eternal and supreme God; and all creatures give thee honour and praise. 'Thou art the true Light gleaming above all light(s), the Living Life, infinite mighty Power. To Thee, the spiritual powers give honour and praise. Thou workest on the race of men the abundance of Thy mercy.'

"Hearken, my son Seth, even to the rest of the secrets [and sacraments] that shall be, which were revealed to me, when I had eaten of the tree of the knowledge, and knew and perceived what will come to pass in this age; [what God intends to do to his creation of the race of men. The Lord will appear in a flame of fire (and) from the mouth of His majesty He will give commandments and statutes [from His mouth will proceed a two-edged sword] and they will sanctify Him in the house of the habitation of His majesty. And He will show them the marvellous place of His majesty. And then they will build a house to the Lord their God in the land which He shall prepare for them and there they will transgress His statutes and their sanctuary will be burnt up and their land will be deserted and they themselves will be dispersed; because they have kindled the wrath of God.

And once more He will cause them to come back from their dispersion; and again they will build the house of God; and in the last time the house of God will be exalted greater than of old. And once more iniquity will exceed righteousness. And thereafter God will dwell with men on earth [in visible form]; and then, righteousness will begin to shine. And the house of God will be honoured in the age and their enemies will no more be able to hurt the men, who are believing in God; and God will stir up for Himself a faithful people, whom He shall save for eternity, and the impious shall be punished by God their king, the men who refused to love His law.

The Scientific Knowledge of Mankind

"And the Lord God sent divers seeds by Michael the archangel and gave to Adam and showed him how to work and till the ground, that they might have fruit by which they and all their generations might live. "And they made Cain an husbandman, (but) Abel they made a shepherd; in order that in this wise they might be mutually separated." From the Lost books of Adam and Eve.

"After religious teachers accomplish the refining process indicated they will surely recognize with joy that true religion has been ennobled and made more profound by scientific knowledge. The situation maybe expressed by an image: Science without religion is lame and religion without science is blind" Albert Einstein

Scientists have dated the formation of the Earth to 4 billion years ago, but that doesn't agree with biblical or theological theory either. What else did they get wrong?
Did we really evolve from apes?

From a scientific viewpoint, most people assume that the first humans were primitive hunter gatherers who developed other skills over time - but that doesn't jive with the knowledge of Adam,(ADAPA) Eve,(Titi) Cain and Abel (twins) since they were apparently created with the ability to speek, reason and learn. The JK Bible and the "Lost Books" state clearly that Adam and Cain (KA.IN) farmed and Abel (ABAEL) raised 'livestock'. Livestock indicates 'domesticated', tame animals. Genesis 3:23 and 4:3 is the only mention of this leaving out many years before that. However another sacred text reveals more as indicated by "the Twins" and the words in parentheses.

The city of Erech is the closest city to the Garden of Eden, but Eridu was the first city founded in 5400 BC. The Sumerian texts say it was built by the 'god' Ea. According to the Sumerian kinglist Eridu was the first city in the world. The opening line reads "[nam]-lugal an-ta èd-dè-a-ba [eri]duki nam-lugal-la"
"When kingship from heaven was lowered, the kingship was in Eridu." Genesis 10:10 lists the first cities as Babylon, Erech, Akkad and Calneh in Shinar. (Sumer) Then it lists the cities that Nimrod built as Nineveh, Rehoboth It, Calah and Resen.

When kingship was 'lowered', who was the first king? In the Sumerian texts Adapa U-an, elsewhere called the first man, was a half-god, half-man culture hero, called by the title Abgallu (Ab=water, Gal=Great, Lu=Man) of Eridu. He was considered to have brought civilisation to the city from Dilmun (probably Bahrain). Noah (Ziusudra/Upnapishtim) may have lived in Sippar.

After the flood: Some modern researchers following David Rohl, have conjectured that Eridu, to the south of Ur, was the original Babel and site of the Tower of Babel, rather than the later city of Babylon, for a variety of reasons:

The ziggurat ruins of Eridu are far larger and older than any others, and seem to best match the Biblical description of the unfinished Tower of Babel. One name of Eridu in cuneiform logograms was pronounced "NUN.KI" ("the Mighty Place") in Sumerian, but much later the same "NUN.KI" was understood to mean the city of Babylon.

The Ziggurat of Eridu is similar to the Ziggurat of Ur, but slightly smaller. The chief god of this city was Enki; the god of Wisdom.

The Enuma Elish, the Babylonian Creation myth, explains how natural phenomena and social institutions on Earth came into being and were regulated. In an earlier Sumerian source, however, the story is different - everything is established by the god Enki, the clever craftsman who presides over the life-giving fresh waters, the patron of crafts and arts, magic and wisdom.

"Fruits of the soil' in Genesis 4:3 indicates domesticated grain, fruit trees, vine grapes, wheat and perhaps barley. Jerico shows the remains of a human civilized population 10,000 years ago. There is much more proof of an advanced civilized society in the Middle East. In Iran and Iraq in particular.

Archaeological finds and the words of Moses, Daniel and Josephus indicate giants also roamed the Earth in very ancient times. They became the biblical 'tribes' feared by all who incountered them. These giants are the legendary 'Nephilim' that God wanted destroyed along with the men they had corrupted. But they are called 'men of renown' in Genesis 6:4. Who were these 'childern' of the 'fallen angels'? 'Nephilim' means 'giant'. The Great Flood of Noah did not rid the Earth of these giants. More about the giants on Hiram Index 3.

Why do we have so many religions? Three true religions, Hinduism, Sikhism and Buddhism, believe in reincarnation. Three other true religions, Judaism, Christianity and Sufism believe in a resurrection. How can they both be right? These and other paradoxes can be explained if you have the missing information.

The reason we can't reconcile the theory of evolution with the Genesis account of creation, or the apparent contradiction of reincarnation and a resurrection is because of one simple yet key piece of information. This website provides that missing piece of information.

But as we said, the oldest, purest form of the legends came from Egypt. From there we can trace them back to Mesopotamia, Sumer in particular or what is now known as Turkey, Iraq and Iran ect. Here we find Noah, and his sons who carried on a tradition and a secret knowledge we are just now beginning to understand. The current Masonic legend started with Noah but switched to Hiram sometime in the 1700's. Noah was not only chosen by God to be saved from the "Flood" but given the 'secrets' of civilized living by God, in the form of stone tablets or 'pillers'. As you read this site, you will see how all 3 of Noah's sons and several grandsons ended up in Egypt. They all became Kings of Egypt under a god they called Horus.

Alexander, the Great personally saw and inspected, according to his historians, many such giant pillars of gold bearing strange scripts in the extremities of India. Plato affirms, in his Critias, that the Atlantean kings inscribed on golden pillars their laws, edicts and judicial decisions, in a strange ritual involving the sacrifice of a bull dedicated to Poseidon. This type of ritual is characteristic of the Indies, where it is called Gomedha.

Masonic legends say that Seth, Adam and Eve's son was the first human to have 'building skills'. Seth was some how connected to the Egyptian evil God Set. These two are in no way connected but the old terminology stuck. Seth was also called 'the crocodile'. The Crocodile King turns up in the predynastic era of Egypt. Josephus refers to Seth as the most notable of the sons of Adam in the Antiquities of the Jews, and reports that his descendants built the Pillars of the sons of Seth. These people were also called the SHEMSU HOR.

ancient astronomical chart It was at Heliopolis that the "Shemsu Hor" - "The Followers of Horus" - kept the knowledge of the ancient Egyptian astronomical religion alive for thousands of years. This ancient priesthood, some believe, had lived in Heliopolis for thousands of years before even the beginning of the historic period in Egypt. There they carefully guided the local population, teaching them the arts of astronomy, mathematics, agriculture, and especially architecture, in order to ensure that the ancient astronomical knowledge would continue. The end result of their efforts were what we now know as the pyramids and Sphinx - hieroglyphics in the form of architecture, the ancient astronomical knowledge frozen in stone.

The "Zodiac of Denderah", located in the Temple of Hathor, in Denderah, Egypt, now on display in the Louvre. Dating from the first century b.c., it details all of the Egyptian constellations. Near the top (and upside down) can be seen the constellation of Aries. Taurus is shown immediately to its right. Leo is below and to the right of the center of the zodiac, treading on a serpent, and below and to the left of Leo one can see Virgo, holding an infant.
From E.C. Krupp, Beyond the Blue Horizon: Myths & Legends of the Sun, Moon, Stars, and Planets. New York: Oxford University Press, 1991.

The god Osiris, as the constellation of Orion. Osiris 
and his constellation sat at the center of the ancient Egyptian astronomical religion. This was typical of all ancient religion, but what was most intriguing about their astronomy was that the Heliopolitan priesthood understood the concept of precession, the "Great Year" of 25,920 years. Previously thought to be discovered by the Greeks, new evidence points to the fact that the Egyptians were fully aware of Precession and all of its ramifications for the apparent motion of the stars relative to earth.

There is significant evidence to support this theory, that ancient Egyptian civilization did not evolve, but appeared in completed form at its inception. As John Anthony West explains, "Every aspect of Egyptian knowledge seems to have been complete at the very beginning. The sciences, artistic and architectural techniques and the hieroglyphic system show virtually no signs of a period of 'development'; indeed, many of the achievements of the earliest dynasties were never surpassed or even equalled later on. This astonishing fact is readily admitted by orthodox Egyptologists, but the magnitude of the mystery it poses is skillfully understated, while its many implications go unmentioned."

As Graham Hancock explains in The Message of the Sphinx, "the 'Followers of Horus' may not have been 'kings' in the usual sense of the word, but rather as immensely powerful and enlightened individuals - high initiates who were carefully selected by an elite academy that established itself at the sacred site of Heliopolis-Giza thousands of years before history began."

There was no copy of the KJ bible distributed to anyone until after 473 AD., and only after the Catholic fathers edited everything out they didn't want the people to read. We found what they edited out and what they refused to acknowledge. These findings tend to put a different 'light' on those of us who are called heretics by the church.

However, this doesn't mean Jesus wasn't real or that he was not capable of the miraculous feats claimed to be 'miracles' by the church. However alot of the miracles were actually 'initiation' rites like the 'raising of Lazarus'. Jesus was educated by the finest minds in the world, including the teachers of the Mystery Schools in India and Egypt. He was a student of the school called the Therapute near Alexandria. In this we find that the some of the myths attributed to the Pagans were actually true. In most instances the inner soul and spiritual meaning of the scriptures could only be revealed to the student by a rabbi or teacher who themselves knew the oral traditions, and knew the secrets of the Law. At the time of the historical Yeshua, this knowledge was possessed by the Essene and Therapute elders.

If we read (Psalms 110:1-7)"The LORD has sworn And will not relent, “You are a priest forever According to the order of Melchizedek.” The "Law" is The Law of Moses. And it is known as the Nazirene Law. Covered in Numbers 6, The Nazirene Law applied to the priesthood only.

With the problem being that these men of religious authority in many instances used their positions to rule and live off the labors and wealth of the people. They not only charged for their services, and misled the people into believing that God approved of their many rituals and traditions, but the allegation against them that they devoured the wealth and houses of widows was a reality of life. see Nazirene Law

The God of the Genuine Jewish Holy men and women was a God who was beyond the faults and flaws which were common to carnal man. And it was for this reason that the holy men and women of 'The Way' composed a new set of scriptures of pure Hebrew thought, declaring the Glory of the God whose Ways were above even the contemplation of carnal men. Thus, in the New Testament scriptures, men and women were taught how to live in order to make themselves the Living Temple of the Most High -- and they were given the Key of knowledge that enabled them to open the inner door to the Kingdom, and dwell in the Sanctuary of God.

It was easy to see why the priesthood of Jesus would be difficult for early Jewish Christians to grasp. He was not from the lineage of Aaron. Jesus claimed nor practiced no special ministry in the temple. He confronted the religious structure instead of joining it. In Jesus’ day, the priesthood also become a corrupt institution. The custom had become High Priest in those days through intrigue and politicking among the corrupt priesthood.

A priest forever is an important contrast. Jesus’ priesthood (like Melchizedek’s) is unending, but no High Priest descended from Aaron ever had a forever priesthood.

"Today I have begotten You", refers to Jesus’ resurrection from the dead. At that time He fully assumed His role as our great High Priest, having been perfected (Hebrews 5:9).

What this means is that most of those Jews who generally believe they are Torah Observant because they are ritually clean, have yet to learn the secrets of the Law, and the manner in which they must apply the Divine Knowledge that has been given to them in the scriptures in the endeavor to open the Inner Door to the Kingdom within. And in like manner, because modern Christians have been anchored to this world by the Pagan doctrines of Rome which they continue to cling to, and falsely believe that they are exempt from works based upon Paul's doctrine of faith, they too have only alienated themselves from the Kingdom of God.

What did the Gospels look like before being edited and re-written by the Church of Rome? What were the original beliefs or the first followers of Yeshua? You will be astonished when you read a surviving text of The Gospel of the Nazirenes which was hidden away from the corrupters of the Roman Church.
see The Secret Doctrine What we fail to realize today is the fact that, in a religion with a true spiritual foundation, these differences of opinion -- opinions that are not permitted under government rule -- are an absolutely necessary.

We can observe this same problem at work today in Communist China. There is only one church -- which is the government ordained church. Doctrine is controlled -- religious thought and expression is controlled -- the clergy being ordained to their position by the state, is tightly controlled -- by virtue of these controls, the church is never at odds with the government -- and the very manner in which the people worship is also controlled. Genuine, spiritual religion, is suppressed, and anyone who deviates from the prescribed doctrine of the government-church is immediately dealt with -- severely.

Genuine followers of the Christ would have nothing to do with the likes of Constantine, and neither would they enter into a covenant with the secular powers of this world.

In a Spiritual Church such as that which Jesus ordained, the focus is not on the believer holding the proper set of beliefs, or a hierarchy of priests -- because the source and authority is spiritual, and remains above and beyond the physical world. The beliefs of each person are therefore seen as a product of the people's stage of spiritual development, and are in accordance with the individual person's condition in relation to man's spiritual reality. Because each person is at a different level of spiritual awareness, fixed creeds and dogma are a detriment to a truly spiritual religion.

Unbelievers are those who, because of their carnal thinking and lifestyle, are spiritually undeveloped, and do not have a solid spiritual connection with God. They may profess a belief in the Lord -- they may demonstrate the outward appearance of a religious person -- they may even be a priest or member of the clergy -- but because their heart and mind is focused on the things of this world, their condition is carnal, and they are said to be of the flesh rather than the spirit.

To a Spiritual Church, these unbelievers who put on the appearance of being a Christian are in fact an anchor to the soul of the Church, and cause it to be grounded in the error and darkness of this world. Their condition is one of spiritual sickness -- they are incomplete and not whole, and unable to connect with God in the true spiritual sense. As both Celsus and the Apostle Paul warns, if they are in too great a number, they will bring about the death and demise of the church itself.

So when Jesus said Lazerus was 'sick', he was refering to his spiritual unawareness.

The 'Mystery Schools' are the key to the 'hidden/secret knowledge'. The schools, taught subjects mostly of a scientific nature, which the church frowned on. They also taught the secret human connection we all have with God. This involved philosophical and spritual understanding. The schools were outlawed and the libraries were burnt. The most important library was the one in Alexandria Egypt. As early as 47 - 48 BC everything scientific and philosophical was stored in the library. From the 1st century onwards, Romans (Julius Caesar) then Christianity slowly strangled the life out of classical culture and it became more and more difficult to be a pagan.... The library had millions of scrolls and texts that were written by the noted scientists and philosophers of the day. The Library and it's history.

Quote from Manly P. Hall and The Secret Teachings of all Ages: Ignorant of the cause of life, ignorant of the purpose of life, ignorant of what lies beyond the mystery of death, yet possessing within himself the answer to it all, man is willing to sacrifice the beautiful, the true, and the good within and without upon the blood-stained altar of worldly ambition. The world of philosophy--that beautiful garden of thought wherein the sages dwell in the bond of fraternity--fades from view. In its place rises an empire of stone, steel, smoke, and hate-a world in which millions of creatures potentially human scurry to and fro in the desperate effort to exist and at the same time maintain the vast institution which they have erected and which, like some mighty, juggernaut, is rumbling inevitably towards an unknown end. In this physical empire, which man erects in the vain belief that he can outshine the kingdom of the celestials, everything is changed to stone, Fascinated by the glitter of gain, man gazes at the Medusa-like face of greed and stands petrified.

In this commercial age science is concerned solely with the classification of physical knowledge and investigation of the temporal and illusionary parts of Nature. Its so-called practical discoveries bind man but more tightly with the bonds of physical limitation, Religion, too, has become materialistic: the beauty and dignity of faith is measured by huge piles of masonry, by tracts of real estate, or by the balance sheet. Philosophy which connects heaven and earth like a mighty ladder, up the rungs of which the illumined of all ages have climbed into the living presence of Reality--even philosophy has become a prosaic and heterogeneous mass of conflicting notions. Its beauty, its dignity, its transcendency are no more. Like other branches of human thought, it has been made materialistic--"practical"--and its activities so directionalized that they may also contribute their part to the erection of this modern world of stone and steel.

What do the lofty concepts of the world's illumined saviors and sages have in common with these stunted, distorted products of the "realism" of this century? All over the world men and women ground down by the soulless cultural systems of today are crying out for the return of the banished age of beauty and enlightenment--for something practical in the highest sense of the word. A few are beginning to realize that so-called civilization in its present form is at the vanishing point; that coldness, heartlessness, commercialism, and material efficiency are impractical, and only that which offers opportunity for the expression of love and ideality is truly worth while. All the world is seeking happiness, but knows not in what direction to search. Men must learn that happiness crowns the soul's quest for understanding. Only through the realization of infinite goodness and infinite accomplishment can the peace of the inner Self be assured. In spite of man's geocentricism, there is something in the human mind that is reaching out to philosophy--not to this or that philosophic code, but simply to philosophy in the broadest and fullest sense.

The great philosophic institutions of the past must rise again, for these alone can tend the veil which divides the world of causes from that of effects. Only the Mysteries- -those sacred Colleges of Wisdom--can reveal to struggling humanity that greater and more glorious universe which is the true home of the spiritual being called man. Modern philosophy has failed in that it has come to regard thinking as simply an intellectual process. Materialistic thought is as hopeless a code of life as commercialism itself. The power to think true is the savior of humanity. The mythological and historical Redeemers of every age were all personifications of that power. He who has a little more rationality than his neighbor is a little better than his neighbor. He who functions on a higher plane of rationality than the rest of the world is termed the greatest thinker. He who functions on a lower plane is regarded as a barbarian. Thus comparative rational development is the true gauge of the individual's evolutionary status.

Briefly stated, the true purpose of ancient philosophy was to discover a method whereby development of the rational nature could be accelerated instead of awaiting the slower processes of Nature, This supreme source of power, this attainment of knowledge, this unfolding of the god within, is concealed under the epigrammatic statement of the philosophic life. This was the key to the Great Work, the mystery of the Philosopher's Stone, for it meant that alchemical transmutation had been accomplished. Thus ancient philosophy was primarily the living of a life; secondarily, an intellectual method. He alone can become a philosopher in the highest sense who lives the philosophic life. What man lives he comes to know. Consequently, a great philosopher is one whose threefold life--physical, mental, and spiritual--is wholly devoted to and completely permeated by his rationality.

Man's physical, emotional, and mental natures provide environments of reciprocal benefit or detriment to each other. Since the physical nature is the immediate environment of the mental, only that mind is capable of rational thinking which is enthroned in a harmonious and highly refined material constitution. Hence right action, right feeling, and right thinking are prerequisites of right knowing, and the attainment of philosophic power is possible only to such as have harmonized their thinking with their living. The wise have therefore declared that none can attain to the highest in the science of knowing until first he has attained to the highest in the science of living. Philosophic power is the natural outgrowth of the philosophic life. Just as an intense physical existence emphasizes the importance of physical things, or just as the monastic metaphysical asceticism establishes the desirability of the ecstatic state, so complete philosophic absorption ushers the consciousness of the thinker into the most elevated and noble of all spheres--the pure philosophic, or rational, world.

In a civilization primarily concerned with the accomplishment of the extremes of temporal activity, the philosopher represents an equilibrating intellect capable of estimating and guiding the cultural growth. The establishment of the philosophic rhythm in the nature of an individual ordinarily requires from fifteen to twenty years. During that entire period the disciples of old were constantly subjected to the most severe discipline. Every activity of life was gradually disengaged from other interests and focalized upon the reasoning part. In the ancient world there was another and most vital factor which entered into the production of rational intellects and which is entirely beyond the comprehension of modern thinkers: namely, initiation into the philosophic Mysteries. A man who had demonstrated his peculiar mental and spiritual fitness was accepted into the body of the learned and to him was revealed that priceless heritage of arcane lore preserved from generation to generation. This heritage of philosophic truth is the matchless treasure of all ages, and each disciple admitted into these brotherhoods of the wise made, in turn, his individual contribution to this store of classified knowledge. more...

The 'Mystery Schools'

The mystery school lessons were taught by Pythagoras 300 years before Christ. But we can go back much further than that to stone tablets discovered in Mesopotamia in the 1800's that were written 8000 years ago...before the deluge. Astrology was the main ingredient connected to religion, but science and a resounding respect for nature was also included. Of course this contridicts what the church believed to be the date of the flood by a few thousand years.

An old Babylonian tablet (1900 - 1600 BC), shown on the left, contains the so-called Pythagorean Theorem, except that it predates Pythagoras by a millennium or more. According to Neugebauer and Sachs (1946), the tablet lists in the two middle columns the numbers that satisfy the so-called Pythagorean Theorem. Specifically, from the left, the first column indexes the contents of the table (1, 2, 3, …), the second and the third the hypotenuse c and the leg a of a right triangle all in sexagesimal numbers. The fourth column shows (c/b)2 where b is the basis of the triangle. For instance, the 11th row shows 75, 45, and 1.5625 = (75/60)2. A translation of another Babylonian tablet preserved in the British museum states (John Heise): 4 is the length and 5 the diagonal. What is the breadth? Its size is not known. 4 times 4 is 16. 5 times 5 is 25. You take 16 from 25 and there remains 9. What times what shall I take in order to get 9? 3 times 3 is 9. 3 is the breadth.

In the Regius Manuscript it states;
Grammar is the first science I know, Dialect the second, so I have I bliss, Rhetoric the third without nay, (doubt) Music is the fourth, as I you say, Astronomy is the fifth, by my snout, Arithmetic the sixth, without doubt, Geometry the seventh maketh an end. So much for legend, what about the facts? It is acknowledged that the Regius Manuscript held in the British Museum is the oldest genuine record of Masonic relevance and was written in 1390.

The ancients also studied medicine and the oldest of that evidence was found in the form of an Egyptian papyrus that is dated to 2660 BC. Another one known as the Rhind papyrus, is dated 1832 BC. In the opening paragraphs of the papyrus, Ahmose (1st King of the 18th dynasty or 'The New Kingdom' and Son of Sequenenre Tao II) presents the papyrus as giving “Accurate reckoning for inquiring into things, and the knowledge of all things, mysteries...all secrets”. another ... Rhind site.

One of the most amazing of these is the Ipuwer Papyrus which describes the Exodus as seen through the eyes of the Egyptians. David Rohl recently proposed a revised chronology, dating the Exodus to the Second Intermediate Period, in which case Ipuwer might refer to that event. Moreover, the association of Ipuwer with the Exodus is generally rejected by Egyptologists, those who interpret the Exodus as a historical event generally place it later, in the reign of Ramesses II. However the new theory is now supported by other archeological experts. Some have alternatively interpreted the poem's references to disturbances in nature as relating to the Thera eruption, which according to dendrochronology and radiocarbon dating occurred ca. 1650-1550 BCE.

There is also the Akhmim wooden tablet which is dated to 2000 BC. Then we have the Kahun Gynecological Papyrus, and the Westcar Papyrus, 2585-2566 BC. The Edwin Smith Papyrus and the Ebers Papyrus, 2660 BC. Paragraphs 1-3 contain magical spells designed to protect from supernatural intervention on diagnosis and treatment. They are immediately followed by a large section on diseases of the stomach (khet), with a concentration on intestinal parasites in paragraphs 50-85. more ..see the link. Paragraphs 242-247 contains remedies which are reputed to have been made and used personally by various gods. Only in paragraph 247, contained within the above mentioned section and relating to Isis' creation of a remedy for an illness in Ra's head, is a specific diagnosis mentioned. (Bryan 1930:45)

The theory that the mysteries concealed deep truths and remnants of a primitive revelation too profound for the popular mind is no longer believed, but undoubtedly the sacred rituals brought to the initiates secret religious doctrines, which in many instances were concerned with the continuance of life beyond the grave. The mysteries consisted of purifications, sacrificial offerings, processions, songs, dances, and dramatic performances. Often the birth, suffering, death, and resurrection of a god were enacted in dramatic form. The aim of the mysteries seems to have been twofold, namely, to give comfort and moral instruction for life on earth, and to inspire hope for life after death.

In those days magic was a sacred science. "It unveils the operations of nature," said Philo Judaeus, "and leads to the contemplation of celestial powers." Only those prepared by discipline were permitted to undertake its study. Learning first to develop their higher sensitivities, and to purify their intermediate nature so it would serve as a channel for the flow of spiritual forces, they then were allowed to study the occult and inner operations of natural forces. They discovered how, for instance, to use and control the more intangible forces of magnetism and electricity, the higher frequencies of vibration, of sound and color, and those mysterious potencies stored within the psychological nature of man and animal.

Their 'wonders' and 'miraculous cures' were based on natural law and were no more difficult for them, once they understood these energies and functions, than it is for our scientists to send men to the moon, probes to the planets, and voice and picture onto television sets around the earth.

Once man's (and woman's too) mind and reason are free from the shackles of obscurantism, priestly oppression, and anti-scientific narrow-mindedness, humankind will stroll into a better world.
"My religion consists of a humble admiration of the illimitable superior spirit who reveals himself in the slight details we are able to perceive with our frail and feeble mind." --

The Secret Books

Book of Noah Interestingly enough we find the patriarchs names like Abraham and his father, Noah,(Zisudra/Xisouthros) his sons, and Enoch (Enmeduranki) and others in the stone tablets of Babylon. We also find Adam, Eve, Cain (Kaini or KA.IN) and Abel. The stone tablets contain information left out of the bible but they also contain the same exact stories we see in the bible, but with a twist here and there that we have probably never imagined. One of the 'twists' is the timeline in which the events occured. Most researchers say the flood occured in 10,600 BC. That moved the dates of other occurances back thousands of years, including the building of the Great Pyramid of Egypt....Again religious supression, this time Muslim, prevents the truth from coming out.

Scholars have overwhelmingly concluded the Babyloian texts are pre-bibical and are therefore more correct and detailed than scripture. The Tablets are called The Enuma Elish. There is also the Book of Jubilies, The Targum (Aramaic translation of the Hebrew Bible), the book of Jasher, The Book of Noah, The secret books of Enoch, the origional Torah and many more. If we include the Nag Hammidi Scrolls, the Dead Sea Scrolls, and The Egyptian Book of the Dead, we can easily see the connections emerge that tie all of it together. Even the Kaballah and Buddahism has bits and pieces of the truth intertwined in it's teachings.

In the Akkadian version he is called 'Utnapishtim' ('he has found (everlasting) life') The Babyloian version has the name Atrahasis ('exceedingly wise') in the Sumerian language. The various versions and fragments of the epic point to different traditions in Flood stories. The Sumerian Flood hero (the early Noah) is called Ubar-Tutu ('Friend of the god Tutu'), in other versions Ziusudra ('Life of long days') The epic named after the latter is very famous and is in Old Babylonian form dated to 1635 BCE. It exists also in later traditions.

An interesting and intriguing light on what the Book of Noah might have contained is to be found in the Book of Jubilees, another one of the Apocrypha (extrabiblical) books from the time of the Second Temple (or earlier).
- It states that the Angels “explained to Noah all the medicines, all the diseases and how he might heal them with herbs of the earth; and Noah wrote down all things in a book, concerning every kind of medicine.” And after the Deluge, Noah “was going to gave all that he had written to his son Shem.”...but Ham stole it.

Starting a new chapter not only in the Bible but in human affairs again with the word Toledoth (generations) is next found in Genesis chapter 10. Dealing with the post-Diluvial times, it begins, “Now these are the ‘generations’ of the sons of Noah: Shem, Ham and Japhet; and unto them were born sons after the Deluge.” The general list, nicknamed by biblical scholars the Table of Nations, reverts to Shem and his descendants and pays special attention to the line of his middle son Arpackhshad both in this chapter and by returning to the subject in chapter II with the opening ‘‘These are the ‘generations’ of Shem.” The significance, we soon gather, is that it was the direct ancestral line of Abraham’s family.

A religiously bias line seems to be drawn between Abraham's sons Ishmael and Issac. Issac was Sarah's son and Ishmeal was Hagar's son. Hagar's son is considered an Egyptian and it's this side of the family that Muslims chose as their spiritual leader. Ishmael also married an Egyptian woman. Judaism maintains that Isaac (the father of the Jewish people) rather than Ishmael was the true heir of Abraham. The New Testament contains few references to Ishmael. Biblically, Ishmael is used to symbolize the older - now rejected - Judaic tradition; Isaac symbolizes the new tradition of Christianity. Islamic tradition, however, has a very positive view of Ishmael, giving him a larger and more significant role. The Qur'an views him as a prophet. According to the interpretation of some early theologians whose view prevailed later, Ishmael was the actual son that Abraham was called on to sacrifice, as opposed to Isaac.

Ishmael had twelve sons, who became the founders of so many Arab tribes or colonies, the Ishmaelites, who spread over the wide desert spaces of Northern Arabia from the Red Sea to the Euphrates (Gen. 37:25,27,28; 39:1), "their hand against every man, and every man's hand against them." Chapters 16-25 of the book of Genesis contain the stories of Ishmael. Historians and academics in the fields of linguistics and source criticism believe that the stories of Ishmael belong to the three strata of J,(the J, or Jahwist, source; written c. 950 BC in the southern kingdom of Judah.) (The name Yahweh begins with a J in Wellhausen's native German.) or Yahwist source, the P, or Priestly source, and the E, or Elohist source (the E, or Elohist, source; written c. 850 BC in the northern kingdom of Israel) (See Documentary hypothesis). For example, The narration in Genesis 16 is of J type and the narration in Genesis 21:8-21 is of E type. The D, or Deuteronomist, source; written c. 621 BC in Jerusalem during a period of religious reform. D takes the form of a series of sermons about the Law, and consists of most of Deuteronomy. Its distinctive term for God is YHWH Elohainu, translated in English as "The Lord our God." Originally composed c. 650-621 BC. more..see Ishmael

Here we have established two sets of texts; The Elohist and the Jahwist, source. It is the oldest source, whose narratives make up half of Genesis and the first half of Exodus, plus fragments of Numbers. J describes a human-like God, called Yahweh (or rather YHWH) throughout, and has a special interest in the territory of the Kingdom of Judah and individuals connected with its history. J was composed c 950 BC and later incorporated into the Torah (c 400 BC). In this source God's name is always presented as the tetragrammaton, YHWH, which scholars transliterate in modern times as Yahweh (or as Jahweh, after the German spelling: Jahweh), and in earlier times as Jehovah, or simply as the LORD, which is the case in the King James translation.

In attempting to identify the author of the Jahwist text, fundamentalist Christians and Jews suggest that this original "core" of the Torah was written by Moses himself, and that the obviously post-schism pro-Judah material was added by the JE redactor to balance the pro-Israel material of the Elohist. This would put the origin of the original Jahwist text somewhere around 1300-1500 BC. This is not accepted by non-fundamentalist scholars. The Jahwist's story begins much earlier than the Elohist's; in fact, it begins at the beginning. Consequently, it introduces stories concerning the general human condition, both large tales such as Adam and Eve, Cain and Abel, as well as brief stories, like that of the Curse of Ham, and the tower of Babel. It also includes general creation stories, such as that of creation itself, the flood, and the badly truncated, and thus difficult to interpret, story of the Nephilim.

The Jahwist is the only source involving talking animals, both in the tale of Adam and Eve, and also in the episode of the Ass of Balaam, neither of which appear in the Elohist work. J is thought to derive from amongst the Aaronid priesthood, and to reflect their polemic opinions in the text. Polemics is the practice of disputing or controverting religious, philosophical, or political matters. As such, a polemic text on a topic is often written specifically to dispute or refute a position or theory that is widely viewed to be beyond reproach. Polemic is also a branch of theology, pertaining to the history or conduct of ecclesiastical controversy.

J has a reduced focus on Moses' importance (the priests of Shiloh were more likely to be descended from Moses than from Aaron - hence "Mushites"), and supports the symbols controlled by the Aaronid religion such as the Ark and the Jerusalem Temple.

While P uses Elohim and El Shaddai as names of God, unlike the Elohist, P treats God as transcendental, and distant, acting only through priests, and communicating only via the priesthood. In P, while God is just, God is also unmerciful, and applies brutal, and abrupt, punishment when laws are broken, such as killing 12,000 people with an instant plague, merely because they complained. P is regarded by the majority of scholars as particularly inelegant, and most think themselves able to recognize a text from P on sight due to this.

The Elohist (E) is one of four sources of the Torah described by the Documentary Hypothesis. Its name comes from the term it uses for God: Elohim. It portrays a God who is less anthropomorphic than YHWH of the earlier Jahwist source ("J"). Anthropomorphism is the attribution of uniquely human characteristics to non-human creatures and beings, natural and supernatural phenomena, material states and objects or abstract concepts. Subjects for anthropomorphism commonly include animals depicted as creatures with human motivation able to reason and converse, forces of nature such as winds or the sun. Anthropomorphism of God is condemned by Islam, since Muslims feel that God is beyond human limits of physical comprehension.

Since the end of the 19th century, it has been argued that the Elohist was composed in northern Israel (Ephraim) c 850 BC, combined with the Jahwist to form JE c 750 BC, and finally incorporated into the Torah c 400 BC. The Elohist promotes Israel over Judah, and Levitical priests over Judah's Aaronite priests. E includes Abraham's mission to sacrifice Isaac, Moses calling down plagues on Egypt, Aaron and the golden calf, the Covenant Code, and Joseph as an interpreter of dreams. This will be very important later.

An example of the conflict comes from Hosea 11:12, "Israel surrounds me with lies and deceit..but Judah still trusts in God and is faithfil to the Holy One."

The tribe of Judah sprang from one man--Judah, who was only one of Israel's (Jacob's) children. They were later called the Jews. The Jewish people are only one-thirteenth of the tribes of Israel. This is a bit confusing because most Jews live in the country of Israel and in New York State. However, we can see that all Jews are Israelites but not all Israelites are Jewish.

God said the House of Israel would be taken captive. Take note that the House of Judah (Jews) is mentioned by itself, and that both nations are mentioned together as the House of Isaac. Therefore, it requires both Israel and Judah together to make up the House of Isaac. Amos 7:9-16 "'The high places of Isaac shall be desolate, And the sanctuaries of Israel shall be laid waste.

The tribe of Levi became the Levitical priesthood, was scattered among all the tribes*, and was not counted as a tribal nation (Lev. 1:47-50). Thus, although there were actually thirteen tribes, they were counted only as twelve tribal nations. * Most of the Levites returned to Jerusalem soon after the ancient nation of Israel divided into two nations (2 Chron 11:13) yet they never were counted as a nation of Israel.

The existence of another book that we might arbitrarily title The Book of Shem or, more specifically, the Book of Arpakhshad, is suggested by yet another tradition concerning writings from before the Deluge. The reference is found in the Book of Jubilees; it informs us that Arpakhshad, a grandson of Noah, was taught by his father Shem to write and read; and seeking a place where to settle, “he found a writing which former generations had carved on a rock, and he read what was thereon, and he transcribed it.” Among other information “it included the teachings of the Nephilim concerning how to observe the omens of the sun and the moon and the stars and the signs of heaven.” This description of the contents of the writings by the Nephilim and thus from before the Deluge parallels the wording in the Book of Enoch about the knowledge of the Sun and the Moon and the stars/planets that he was taught from “the heavenly tablets, and all that was written thereon.” All that Enoch passed on to his son Metuselah.
Zecharia Sitchin The Cosmic Code p182-183

Much later in (Exodus 2:1)—Moses and Aaron were initiated into magical powers that enabled them to perform miracles as well as trigger the calamities that were meant to convince the Pharaoh to let the Israelites leave. Aaron and his Sons were then sanctified—”upgraded” in current parlance—to become priests endowed with 'considerable Wisdom and Understanding'. The Book of Leviticus sheds light on some of the knowledge that was granted to Aaron and his sons; it included secrets of the calendar (quite complex), healing, and veterinary knowledge. Considerable anatomical information is included in the relevant chapters of Leviticus, and the possibility that the Israelite priests were given "hands-on” lessons cannot be ruled out in view of the fact that clay models of anatomical parts, inscribed with medical instructions, were current in Babylon even before the time of the Exodus.

(The Bible described King Solomon as the “wisest of men” who could discourse on the biodiversity of all the plants, “from cedars of Lebanon to the hyssop that grows out of a wall, and animals, and birds, and creeping things, and fishes.”)

Solomon's tribute to Wisdom:
"She is an inexhaustible treasure for mankind, and those who profit by it become God's friends, commended to him by the gifts they derive from her instruction. God grant that I may speak according to his will, and that my own thoughts may be worthy of his gifts; for even wisdom is under God's direction and he corrects the wise; we and our words, prudence and knowledge and craftsmanship, all are in his hand. He himself gave me true understanding of things as they are: a knowledge of the structure of the world and the operation of the elements; the beginning and end of epochs and their middle course; the alternating solstices and changing seasons; the cycles of the years and the constellations; the nature of living creatures and behaviour of wild beasts; the violent force of winds and the thoughts of men; the varieties of plants and the virtues of roots. I learnt it all, hidden or manifest, for I was taught by he whose skill made all things, wisdom. For in wisdom there is a spirit intelligent and holy, unique in its kind yet made up of many parts, subtle, free-moving, lucid, spotless, clear, invulnerable, loving what is good, eager, unhindered, beneficent, kindly towards men, steadfast, unerring, touched by care, all-powerful, all-surveying, and permeating all intelligent, pure, and delicate spirits." see The Wisdom of Solomon

He could do so (understanding) because in addition to the Wisdom and the Understanding (intelligence) that were God-given, he also acquired Da ‘at/i—learned knowledge). One of the 'Books of Solomon' contained all the names of the Angels. In these 'Odes' we also see reference to the Pistis Sophia. which is another hidden work of the Disciples and Christ that is in the Nag Hammidi Scrolls collection. Ode 15: The thought of knowledge hath been mine, and I have been delighted through Him."
The mention of the Dove refers to a lost Gospel to which there are rare references in ancient writings.

We included this compairson of Buddha (ca. 500 B.C.E) with the stories about Jesus to make our point but this is only one of several instances where the stories of these gods were incorporated into the stories about Jesus. They include Prometheus of Greece, Krishna of India, Horus and Mithra, Sun-god of Persia (ca. 600 B.C.E.).

1. Buddha was born of the virgin Maya, who was considered the “Queen of Heaven.” (cf. Jer 44:25).
2. He was of royal descent.
3. He crushed a serpent’s head.

4. He performed miracles and wonders, healed the sick, fed 500 men from a “small basket of cakes,” and walked on water.
5. He abolished idolatry, was a “sower of the word,” and preached “the establishment of a kingdom of righteousness.
6. He taught chastity, temperance, tolerance, compassion, love, and the equality of all.
7. He was transfigured on a mount.
8. Sakya Buddha was crucified in a sin-atonement, suffered for three days in hell, and was resurrected.
9. He ascended to Nirvana or “heaven.”
10. Buddha was considered the “Good Shepherd”, the “Carpenter”, the “Infinite and Everlasting.”
11. He was called the “Savior of the World” and the “Light of the World.”

In fact, the Egyptian religion is likely the primary foundational basis for the Judeo-Christian theology.

Baptism, afterlife, final judgment, virgin birth and resurrection, crucifixion, the ark of the covenant, circumcision, saviors, holy communion, the great flood, Easter, Christmas, Passover, and many many more, are all attributes of Egyptian ideas, long predating Christianity and Judaism.

Ephippas and the Demon of the Red Sea
 bring the Great Pillar to Solomon To emphasize another point, we found a sculpture and the story of King Solomon having control over a demon, making it hold a book for him... here it is. Old Testament Legends. And here's another one.. The Lesser Key of Solomon.

"The wisdom of Solomon as described in 1 Kings was, of course, legendary, and it came to be assumed that such wisdom must have included great knowledge of the magical arts and power over the spirit world. Yes King Solomon used 'magic' but it was used to protect the followers and priests and heal the sick. He also used it to punish blasphemers, with a 'fire stick'.

This magic is mentioned again in the Masonic degree work when Moses was told to build a brazen serpent, and put it on a pole, and all who looked upon it were cured of the serpent's venom. The 'serpent' in this context means 'knower of wisdom'. It is not a literal serpent or snake. This most likely refers to a person or enity. One guifted in magical arts but determined to hurt, make ill or punish man. And most importantly, we see two serpents - two knowers of 'Wisdom' who are apparently 'opposites'. To make this point clear, there is white magic and there is dark magic.

How many times do we have to say it. Occult means "secret", NOT SATANIC!.. look it up in the dictionary.

To this very day there are sermons on the internet by preachers, warning people to stay away from the 'occult'. To some extent this is true if you do not have the knowledge it takes to stay away from dark magic, like a Ouija board. But 'occult' has become a demonized word that the church placed on those who disagreed with them or their teachings and had a alternative religious view. They call astrology an 'occult' practice. Sooth sayers were psychics and were to be avoided at all costs and Tarot card readers were devils and the list goes on and on.

King Solomon was said to be able to control demons just by knowing their name. He made them work. Asath [Asach]: an Angel invoked in Solomonic magical rites.
see Ornias in the Testament of Solomon
Take note of the reference to The Water pourer and the 'sign' of Aquarius. "I strangle those who reside in Aquarius because of their passion for women whose zodiacal sign is Virgo."

Ashael: an invocation Angel, mentioned in M. Gaster, see the introduction , first and then this;
The Sword of Moses. To take a modern example, the charm against the Evil Eye will contain the name of Christ or of a Saint in a Christian charm, the name of Muhammad in the Muhammedan, and that of an angel or a mysterious name of God in the Jewish formula, though all the rest would be identical.

Ashriel: "Vow of God" - one of the seven Angels with dominion over the Earth. He is the Angel who separates the soul from the body at death. In the Cabala, he is invoked as a curer of stupidity.

Unchanged Jewish traditions require that certain rituals and blessings called for on the Sabbath and High Holidays services must be performed only by a Cohen. The term, meaning “priest,” was first used in the Bible to describe Aaron and his sons. Ever since then, the designation has been passed down through the generations from fathers to sons. And the only way to become a Cohen is to be born as a son of one. This privileged status has been as often as not identified by using “Cohen” as a family name (transmuted into Kahn, Kahane, Kuhn) or as an adjective added after a person’s name, so and so Ha-Cohen, “the priest.” Zecharia Sitchin The Cosmic Code p132-133.
The word seems to have been twisted again to represent COVEN or Cowan which means 'witch'.

Witchcraft: The fear of witchcraft is a natural outcome of the belief in spirits and in the possibility of controlling or using them. If religion did not originate this superstition, it certainly did a good deal to strengthen it. Indeed, Protestant as well as Catholic Christianity at one time bitterly persecuted those who did not believe in the efficacy of witchcraft. For the writers of the Bible certainly believed that witches could recall even the prophets from the dead; and the Mosaic law specifically commanded that witches should be put to death.

Magic: The Hebrew tradition with its strong condemnation of magic gives a 'reasonable' explanation for the occurrence - reasonable, if one believes in an almighty god playing around with the so-called laws of physics. To the Egyptians on the other hand magic was an inseparable part of life, a tool to be embraced rather than shunned. see the Westcar papyrus. Now because of religious prosecution, it is closely related to witchcraft.. Recent writers like Frazer are inclined to draw a sharp distinction between magic and religion. But though the Church hindered the progress of physics, chemistry, and medicine by persecuting magicians, the belief that the course of nature could be changed by invoking supernatural agencies or spirits is common to both religion and magic. The magician cures you by an incantation, pronouncing a strange formula; the priest or rabbi does it by a blessing; the saint does it posthumously to anyone who touches his relics. The magician brings rain by rubbing a stick, the priest by a prayer.

Psychics: We have come to except physics like John Edwards, Sylvia Brown, Edgar Cacey, ect. Sylvia Brown was on the Montel Williams show on Wednesdays. She answered questions that members of the audience pose. She delt with a wide variety of subjects from; "When will I meet the 'right' person?", to messages from beyond the grave from loved ones. Of course there are 'fanatics' who discredit each one of the people we mention. But to the people who have been helped by these physics, they are real and tell the truth. Sylvia recently said that missing high school senior Natalie Holloway, was thrown into the Ocean in Aruba. An investigate reporter named Peter R. de Vries posed as a friend of suspect Joran van der Sloot. "Her body, van der Sloot said, had been dumped in the ocean by a friend with a boat." He admitted his first call wasn't to the hospital or to the police -- but to a friend to help dispose of the body. Aruban investigators recalled the suspects with this information in hand but couldn't get a confession. Sylvia predicted this 4 months before the report came out.

We even have a TV show about a psychic. Patricia Arquette plays Allison DuBois on NBC's Medium. For the past three seasons, Allison has served as a part-time consultant to the district attorney's office in Phoenix, Ariz., using her psychic abilities to solve violent and horrifying crimes that have mystified authorities, including her now former boss D.A. Devalos (Miguel Sandoval, "The Division") and others within the criminal justice system. The show is based on the true-life experiences of the psychic.

Milford cemetary Ghost hunters... Another TV show on cable has the investigators encountering strange noises, doors slaming, and audio of an unexplained origin. And there's the International Ghost Hunters Society , who usually go to haunted places with special cameras that capture heat or energy. 'Orbes' are captured on film and video. These are 'traped souls' looking for a way out of their physical earthbound plane. Other orbs are angels protecting us. There may be 3 or 4 protecting a small child and Sylvia says we all have a 'guide'. One who whispers in our ear to warn us of impending disaster or guide us in our daily routine. see Ghost Stories

angel or 'Image' The book, Isis Unviled offers this explaination; The philosophers, and especially those who were initiated into the Mysteries, held that the astral soul is the impalpable duplicate of the gross external form which we call body. The astral 'perisprit is contained and confined within the physical body as ether is in a bottle, or magnetism in magnetized iron. Its inherent activity causes the incessant physical operations of the animal organism and ultimately results in the destruction of the latter by overuse and its own escape. It is the prisoner, not the voluntary tenant, of the body. It has an attraction so powerful to the external universal force that after wearing out its casing it finally escapes from it. The stronger, grosser, more material its encasing body, the longer the term of its imprisonment. There's more on our page called "Light".

If a formula or ritual invokes the accepted god and is performed by the authorized person, it is religion. If the god, the act, or the agent is not an authorized one, the first is referred to as a devil, the second as a sacrilege, and the third as a magician. The Church regarded the pagan deities as demons.

Both religion and magic generally involve the influence of the supernatural -- though the magicians more frequently studied the physical or medicinal properties of the substances they used. The fetish-worshiper attaches magical potency to stones, but so does the Bible. Touching the Ark, even with the most worshipful intention, brings death. Two of Aaron's sons were killed when they entered the main part of the temple unprepared to be in the presence of the Ark. They didn't even touch it! Afterwards Moses ordered they be taken far from the tents to be buried.

So what killed them? We might have the answer on our Ark of the Covenant page.

Fact! - Our planet is billions of years old...Adam was here long before 4000BC.

As we look at the scientific findings of the last 75 years, we find that archaeological discoveries have shed light on the development of humankind. Some of these findings do not agree with biblical history if we try to assume that God created the Earth and Adam only 4000 years ago. And researchers have found that the Great Flood happened much further back in time than theologists declare. The archaeological record confirms a great tsunami occured when the Antarctic ice sheet slipped into the Antarctic Ocean.
After that the continent was 'mapped' by unknown visitors.

Later generations embellished this Sumerian myth into a world-encompassing flood. Archaeologists later found flood deposits at Utnapishtim's city of Shurrupak in Lower Mesopotamian, “the Flood” was determined to have been a flooding of the Euphrates river in the 4th-3rd millenniums BCE, based on the microscopic analysis of the flood sediments.

By Sumerian and biblical reckoning this flood occurred at approximately 11,000 BC. This is coincidental to the end of the last Ice Age and the time frame for the Earth Crust Displacement theory, and the emerging theory of the “Vela Intruder” and the approximate time frame when geologists believe that water erosion on the Sphinx Occurred.

The answer to the first question was surpressed by the Christian church and like other details, was removed from scripture. The second is a bit more difficult, but modern archaeology has found the answer. Actually there was a King and a pharoah at the same time. Where did the term 'pharoah' originate? The banned books, the Sumerian texts, The Nag Hammidi Scrolls, The Egyptian Book of the Dead, the Koran, the Torah ect., gave us the answers.

The Torah gives details not provided in the bible as do other 'banned books' not included in the offical cannon. And we found that the 'Cannon' is only one version of the 'creation story'. There are many more. There are the ones from; Greece, Sumeria, Egypt, India, Chinia, Mesoamerica, Australia, Rome, and the list goes on. Another so-called heretical text tells us Eve did not come from Adam's rib. Another story from the 'banned books' gives details of the 'pharoah' that battled with an Egyptian King. The pharoah lost. There is no destinction between the two in Exodus or anywhere else in the bible.... So how do we know with absolute certainy the Hebrew version is historically or even 'literally' correct?

From the Sumerian and Greek sources we find that Noah's navigator and others were aboard the Ark. The other people were given directions to find their way back to Mesopotamia by themselves after the Ark landed. This would explain the diverse races and cultures of the world. The heritical texts and the banned books will change history because more and more people are asking questions and they should. People should be able to think and reason for themselves and draw their own conclusions.

Archaeological finds

The first proofs for domestication of plants and animals come from such temporary campsites and are sporadically already seen from 9000 BCE. E.g. the distribution in the bones over male and female animals could not be explained by hunting alone.

The principle of agriculture: sowing and harvesting is probably discovered in many places and in many time periods independently. Even nowadays in the Near East one can collect at suitable spots two liters of wild grains per day per person. First grain species are barley and wild spelt. The knowledge that grains of corn will grow to new grain plants must have been known for a long time. The selection for the breeding of new varieties initially occurred almost automatically. Loose grains falls off while cutting. They are a waste, but the ones brought home and sowed again suffer less from this disadvantage. Simply sowing into fertile soil also stimulates different and better varieties. Natural barley has a flat spike in two rows, but in fertile soil a mutant is going to dominate automatically having a spike of six rows, resulting in an important increase of harvest yield.

Origin. One doesn't know where ceramics originated, but it occurred probably around 6000 BCE. By 5000 BCE the use was generally fashionable. Until that time the Neolithic is called the Aceramic Neolithic, or also the Pre-pottery Neolithic. Type of clay or mud, additions, shape, finishing tough and decoration are fashion-dependent characteristics. These features are used extensively in archeology for dating and geographical distribution. The distribution indicates trade over large distances, even in the earliest times. Other Web texts references:see Pre history Archaeological Ceramics and Chemistry at the Museum Applied Science Center for Archaeology, and Pre-dynastic Egypt.

Simple copper artifacts (pins) have been found in a Neolithic village in Turkey and dated shortly before 7000 BCE. The object is shaped by hammering. It is the earliest siting of this metal. There is yet no question of metallurgy: the treatment of metals by melting, smelting, casting or alloying. The earliest findings of molted copper dates back to the beginning of the 4th millennium and become more numerous to the end of the 4th millennium.

Those of you who are unfamiliar with Masonry see this.. What is Masonry?

Visit our Soap Box corner. We will tell you why we composed this site. And visit our Brief History page which includes further evidence of changes in Masonic and Templar traditions, which were controlled and influenced by the Church of England. Masons in Scotland were forced to accept the Grand Lodge's demands that they break from French and German traditions. This may be the reason the Egyptian, Celtic, Druidic, ect. origins of the craft are somewhat vague and never fully explained.
