I submit that there was a conspiracy long ago to take reverence away from the Mother Earth and send it instead to a male God that is "out there"
someplace, in his "Heaven," I suppose. People have forgotten that the Earth is a sentient, living being, our Mother is any sense of the word.
It all begins with the Atom. Everything is made up from them, that coffe table in your living room, the Moon, everything in the universe is made from
Atoms. Perhaps a typo turned Atom into "Adam?"
Here is a site that explains about the Atom:
How Atoms Work
Want to build something from Atoms?
In the last lesson we learned that atoms were particles of elements, substances that could not be broken down further. In examining atomic
structure though, we have to clarify this statement. An atom cannot be broken down further without changing the chemical nature of the substance.
For example, if you have 1 ton, 1 gram or 1 atom of oxygen, all of these units have the same properties. We can break down the atom of oxygen into
smaller particles, however, when we do the atom looses its chemical properties. For example, if you have 100 watches, or one watch, they all behave
like watches and tell time. You can dismantle one of the watches: take the back off, take the batteries out, peer inside and pull things out.
However, now the watch no longer behaves like a watch. So what does an atom look like inside?
Atoms are made up of 3 types of particles electrons , protons and neutrons. These particles have different properties. Electrons are tiny, very
light particles that have a negative electrical charge (-). Protons are much larger and heavier than electrons and have the opposite charge, protons
have a positive charge. Neutrons are large and heavy like protons, however neutrons have no electrical charge. Each atom is made up of a combination
of these particles.
Those of you who know me have often heard me say that all book religions are based on Sun worship, and it is true I do believe that. What object that
humanity can actually see is more worthy of worship that the Sun?
HISTORY OF THE SUN
HISTORY OF THE SUN:
In ancient times, people knew that they could not live without this magnificent creation, the Sun, yet they didn't know why. Since then, the sun has
been worshiped as a God. The sun god was called Ra in Egypt, Helios is Greece, Marduk by the Babylonians, and Utu by the Sumerians. The Aztecs fed
human sacrifices to this bloodthirsty god, Huitzilopochtli. The Incas believed that their king was a descendant of the sun. All of these cultures
worshiped the sun.
Not much was known back then about the sun. The ancient Chinese believed that the sun was being chased across the sky by a giant dragon. When the
sun disappeared because it was being covered by the moon (an eclipse), they thought the dragon had swallowed the sun. They would then shoot arrows in
to the sky, light firecrackers, etc to drive away this evil spirit.
The Chinese were not the only ones who worried when they could not see the sun. The Egyptians thought that when the sin sank below the horizon, it
had to travel underground and fight off demons before returning the next morning. The Egyptians had many gods for the sun, including different ones
for the rising and setting sun, the heat and light, the disk and rays. The pyramids were built so the sides would be in a line with the rising sun at
the beginning of spring.
Here is more, the site owners do not believe this, as they say, but this is a pretty fair assessment of the Sun's origin:
History of the Sun
ORIGIN OF THE SUN:
**Disclaimer: This is just from a source. It is not the personal belief of any of us.**
At first, there was nothing. Well not exactly. Billions of years ago, there was no sun, no Earth, no solar system. There was just a huge cloud
of dust and gas in the galaxy. About 5 billion years ago, there were enough hydrogen atoms in the cloud for gravity to pull them together. As the
cloud shrank, it became denser. The atoms were soon moving so fast that this cloud began to glow. When the cloud was hot enough, electrons and protons
of the hydrogen atoms flew apart. When two protons collided, they would fuse, or stick to one another, until atoms of helium formed. This process is
called fusion. Energy is produced in the form of light and heat through fusion as well. This energy made the cloud to enlarge, while the gravity was
pulling to hold the atoms together. Finally, the forces balanced and the cloud settled in to what is now known as our sun.
With the sun at the center, our solar system formed. Over millions of years, the leftover gas and dust formed the nine planets, and a variety of
moons, asteroids, comets, and meteors. Due to fusion, the sun is the only object in the solar system that gives off light and heat of its own. The
planets and the moon only reflect the light of the sun.
One question that may arise is, where does fusion take place? The answer is in the core, or the center, of the sun. Scientists believe that the core
is about the size of Jupiter. It is very hot and very dense. The temperature can reach highs of 27 million degrees Fahrenheit. The core's gas is
about one hundred times denser than most metals. Since the core is this dense, it is hard for rays to leave. When gamma rays are released by fusion,
they continue to collide with other atoms. Due to this, it takes the gamma rays almost thirty thousand years to reach the sun's surface! This means
that the light that we receive on Earth was created thousands of years ago.
The Sun is actually an ideal size to support life on Terra/Earth. Earth could not survive if a red super-giant Star like Betelgeuse.... because it is
so huge that it would engulf and burn all the planets! Nor would we want a star like the blue-white supergiant Rigel, 25,000 times as bright as the
sun, and emitting too much high-frequency radiation.
Also, a Star much smaller than our sun would be too faint to support life, unless the planet were so close to the star that there would be dangerous
gravitational tides, the Earth could never have become stable.
So, in my view, the Sun is our God, but not our Creator.
That all began with THE BIG BANG.
Now here is my theory on who the Creator God/Goddess is. I think of it as a force of supreme energy that exploded, much like the Big Bang, and
shattered into billions of tine sparks of energy. Each living thing has one of these sparks of energy, friends, you included. Put us all together in
Spirit form, we are the One Creator, we can create.
Now to further my theory. The Creator is not male, she is female. How do I know this? "As above, so below."
Look around you, do you have children? Who created them? The male provided the spark of life energy, but the woman made the being into a human baby.
Mankind is deathly afraid of womankind, did you know that? Search in your heart, those deep feelings, why do men go to such lengths to control women?
Just a few days ago I was walking in the grocery with my wife, who is half my age and very pretty. a man came up, looked her over, and said to me,
"are you keeping her in line?" I almost smacked him. How could he say that? I thought. Men have been controlling women for too long now, and man has
raped and destroyed this world again and again. I blame the Teachers, the Kings and Rulers of ancient times...they saw the power of women, and they
acted to oppress them. Soon close to a million women were murdered in the name of a male God. the Holy Priesthood was exclusively male for a great
many years. Marriage was invented. Women could not own land, could not vote, could not go out in public without a male relative in tow, and in the
Muslim world, this is still true today.
OK, if God (the male) is a reality, then there must be a Goddess, again, "as above, so below." This is in the Bible, and is a favored saying in
Wicca also. So who is this Goddess?
Mother Earth was once a sacred garden. this is the form our Mother Earth wanted to take. She wanted to be filled with lush gardens, waterfalls, soft
warm sunlight, misty fog and cool fragrant breezes. She wanted to be soft, and gentle and romantic. She wanted to be loved and adored and revered in
her right place, as our Mother, the giver of all life. In the Early Times, She was revered as the Great Mother, Goddess worship goes way back in
history, thousands of years before Christianity came along, and even they have a Goddess...
There are several female Deities that can lay claim to the title Christian Goddess. Mary, the Mother of Jesus/Yeshua, first comes to mind. There is
Mary Magdalene the "Goddess in the Gospels" the Church refused to acknowledge as the wife of Yeshua and probably co-Messiah. "Mary" is a Greek
pronunciation of the Hebrew name Miriam or Miriamne. There are many theories about this name, such as Mary might not even be a name, but a title
meaning Priestess of Goddess.
The Earth Mother needed and wanted balance, and acceptance for her wonderful gifts. Gifts of life, and love and reproduction. But almost before She
had time to know the beauty that She was, something happened and our beautiful Earth Mother began to fall.
