Pleased demonstrate that they do indeed worship her. It seems like Kerry is a catholic and Dubya is a methodist. At the Bohemian Grove, the members
of the BC have rituals that look like they are worshipping an owl, when in fact they are not.
An important thing to keep in mind is that most of htese sorts of groups, snb, bc, and greek frats in general, came about a a time when people had
profound respect for classical civilization and the greco-roman world. So they created these tihngs with greco-roman themes
, its not that they
neo-classical pagan cults.
worships a 40 feet statue of the "pagan" God molech
This is actually incorrect. THe israelite god 'molech' was never
represented as an owl. The "owl of bohemia" is, most likely, yet another
one of these classical references, wherein the Owl reprewsents athena and wisdom. Don't look to the socialites and noveau riche
who make up
the BC now
, look at the actual people who invented the organization and its "legendary"internal history. They weren't interested in
resurrecting an old heretical israeli cult.
I also know that societies branched from masonry
There is no evidence that SnB was formed as an offshoot of masonry. It seems to really be an invention of these students at yale university,
interestingly in a pre-greek frat time.
, true enough, today a eulogy is a speech at a funeral, today. Eu-Logia would mean c.f. 'true speech', fitting that snb attributes
it to an orator, who'd be well versed in rhetoric, which is what a debate club would look to as something of a patron.
[url=http://classics.mit.edu/Plutarch/demosthe.html]Here is Plutarch's work on Demosthenes. There is no mention of "Eulogia" nor
"calliope" with reference to him. What source do you have for Eulogia as existing that is not in the context of the snb??
"the truth is out there"
You can not find the truth by looking to confirm preconceived notions, rather you must challenge those notions to find Veritas
Robbins maintains that there is no ancient goddess named Eulogia.
Indeed, if one is to say that there was such a god, where are her temples, where are the votives devoted to her, what texts refer to her? The greeks
and romans especially did have lots of werid specifc gods, like "strife" and the like.
