Well, Baphomet is Hebrew Atbasj code for Sophia. Sophia means Wisdom and in ancient Greece she was worshipped in many centuries as the origin of all
knowledge, but most of all Sophia is a word, not a goddess, hence, Baphomet is a secretive way of putting Wisdom in high esteem back in the Dark Ages
when the Catholic Church forbid anyone outside the Church to gain knowledge and Wisdom.
In Gnosticism and certain ancient Jewish sects up through the ages, "Sophia" or more precisely the "Goddess of Wisdom" was seen as God's Wife no
less. She may be linked to Asjera who was the consort of Ba'al, Ba'al meaning Lord in Canaanean and even Hebrew. So when you cry out "Dear Lord,
lift my sins off of my shoulders", you could just aswell shout for Ba'al. And when you say "Jesus is the Morning Star" you could just aswell call
him Lucifer, for Lucifer means the Morning Star.
And. The idea that the inverted pentagram is the sign of Lucifer is just so stupid as it gets, even more ignorant than Christians calling Satan
Lucifer, ignorant to the fact that they then give Satan one of the most prominent titles of their own Master Jesjuah ha Mesjiach. Lucifer was a Roman
god, who was the God of the Morning Star, so the upright pentagram is "his" star. The one pointing down is the symbol of the Evening Star, Vesper in
Latin, and is the "star that falls" or "the Star that Makes Fall", the "stumbling block" if you like. These are all elements of human nature and
unless you concider them religious, they aren't at all religious. It's pure geometry, the math of the pentagram is encoded into everyone of you,
it's the symbol of the golden proportion. Period.
