"The practice of superstition is so congenial to the multitudes that, if they are forcibly awakened, they still regret the loss of their pleasing vision" -Edward Gibbon

- In the old religions of Egypt, Chaldea, and Greece, the twelve rays of genius in humans were variously represented by the Twelve Saviors of the Treasure of Light, the twelve Reapers of the Golden Grain, the Twelve Harvesters in the Field of Amenta, the Twelve Builders, the Twelve Carpenters, the Twelve Potters, the Twelve Weavers of the Pattern, the Twelve Fisherman, the Twelve Rowers of the Boat of Ra (with Horus at the prow), the Twelve Sailors in the Ship of Ra, the Sun. The Twelve Labours of Heracules, the Twelve Sons of Jacob, the Twelve Tribes of Israel, the Twelve Apostles, and the Twelve Knights of King Arthur's table all have the same zodical, evolutionary, and theological derivation. And then there are the twelve months of the year. It was no accident that there were twelve gods with Odin in Norse mythology. The whole of the Bible, as anyone familiar with it knows, is permeated by the number twelve and multiples thereof. Twelve times twelve times one thousand gives the figure of 144,000, the symbols for all the "elect" of God in the Book of Revelation.

- Much more important, however, is the fact that the Egyptian texts bear witness to an "only begotten god" (meaning begotten of one parent only), whose symbol was the beetle because in ancient science this creature was thought to be "self-produced, being unconceived by a female". The "only begotten god" is a well-known type (symbol), then, of divinty worshipped in Egypt. In each cult the Messiah-son manifestor was the only begotten god.

- When Horus comes to earth in the Egyptian story, he is supported or given bread by Seb, who is the god of earth, "the father on earth". He is thus the divine father on earth of the messiah-son, who manifests in time. Just as Joseph, the adoptive father of Jesus, provides shelter and food for his son, so Seb (Jo-Seph) cares for Horus. The consort of Seb is the mother of heaven, named Nu; Meri (Mary) is another Egyptian name for heaven, as well as the name for the mother of the messiah. Thus Seb and Meri for earth and heaven would afford the two mythic originals for Jospeh and Mary as parents of the divine child. There are seven different Marys in the four Gospels. They correspond with uncanny fidelity to seven Marys, or Hathors, in the Egyptian stories.

-King David, said by the Bible to have been a mighty potentate and empire builder, "was rather a freebooter who carved out what was at most a camel duchy in the southern highlands around Jerusalem and Hebron". In fact, there are some archaeologists today who maintain, because of the absence of concrete evidence, that he too never existed. The name David appears on one lone inscription on a stone block, or stele, from the ninth century B.C.E., and that's all there is. "If David and Solomon had been important regional power brokers, one might reasonably expect correspondance of thier day. Yet, once again, the record is silent". Fundamentalists once took delight in evidence from the 1930s that the walls of Jericho had on one occasion fallen down, much as the Book of Joshua describes. However, British archaeologists Kathleen Kenyon, in more recent times, has demonstrated from pottery shards in the ruins that the destruction occurred no later than 1300 B.C.E., almost a hundred years before the conquest (if there was one) could have happened. Joshua may well not have "fit the battle of Jericho" after all.

- A-Brahm is a combination of the alpha privative (as in the words, "amoral" and "anoxia") and Brahm (as in Vedic or Hindu), and means "not Brahm". Abraham the patriarch, or the oldest of the emanations, was not Brahm, the Hindu supreme deity, Brahm. He was the first life that was not Absolute, but from the Absolute, a kind of demi-god, or sun God.

You wouldn't know a lie if it were looking at you in the mirror.
