The Encyclopedia Of Religion directly identifies the Greek god, Hermes, who was derived from the Egyptian god Hermes Trismegistus, with phallic
worship and the obelisk. We also discover in this comprehensive work that Hermes was worshipped in the image of a quadrangular stone pillar:
"The phallic symbolism of ancient Greek religion is most extensive. The representation of Hermes offers a prime example…at Cyllene Hermes was
worshipped by the name Phales-- derived from Phallos - and in the image of a phallic stone. More usually, however, his phallic image was a herm.
Originally a stone heap--perhaps topped by a large upright stone--serving as a landmark in the countryside without roads, the herm developed into a
quadrangular stone pillar topped by the head of Hermes and featuring at its front an erect phallus...." .
"There was a time when Asia, Europe, Africa, and America were covered with the temples sacred to the sun and the dragons. The priests assumed the
names of their deities, and thus the tradition of these spread like a network all over the globe… And where is this source? Kircher places the
origin of the Ophite and the heliolatrous worship, the shape of conical monuments and the obelisks, with the Egyptian Hermes Trismegistus …'But it
is known …that this prince… received… the homages of his subjects under the shape of a serpent
Seems the worship of the Lingam, penis goes way back farther than any coincidence by many cultures, religions..
