Let’s tell a little story that is based in reality… In mans early years man learned to appreciate the sun… He wondered what greatness could bring him warmth and allow him to see any predators hunting him… The sun was good God was born… At the same time when it was dark out man was easily hunted… He could not see as well and without fire he was cold… The darkness was bad… Evil was born… Man worshiped the sun and feared the darkness…

Soon a smarter breed of man was born these men realized they could utilize the light of the moon to hunt by, they discovered fire and its warmth… Other men now worshiped the moon and the darkness as they learned to utilize this time of day… Surely not being able to comprehend that the moon was just reflecting sunlight at night the dark God was born… To them it must have seemed as they were favored by this dark God (Satan by any other name)…

As these tribes traveled to procure more land and resources these tribes met each other… We worship the Sun and the light said one chief… No Said the other the Moon and darkness are our God… A large fight ensued and shortly thereafter War was born…

Now having the concepts of both good and evil and that of fighting to claim the right to say they were correct and their god was the most powerful, man started to notice that some days were longer sometimes the night… Thus the War of the Gods (good fighting evil) was born…

Now anyone with half a brain and the want to push their thoughts so can see this example while being very simplified is a viable scenario to the birth of good and evil, God, and eventually war itself…

Fast forward to present day,

Today modern man has learned a lot about how the light and darkness work… Yet even with this knowledge man cannot shake the need to believe in a war between good and evil… Neither can he shake the primitive thoughts of one God being more powerful over the other, or the need of a supernatural reason for things to be… In fact man has elevated this war to simple nuances between their beliefs so much that one who follows the right or left hand path cannot even agree with another on the same path…

Looking back can we call these first people who worshiped the dark Satanists or did we need Anton or some Jew to coin the phrase Satanist to make it reality? Can we as advanced beings realize that a God and the dogma involved are needed by some to float their boat so to say? No matter which path is chosen? It matters little to me if you pray to a literal Satan as you perform ritual, if you simply do it to reprogram your mind, or don’t need ritual at all… Anton seemed to understand this need for dogma, even if he was just milking a cash cow…

While I may poke fun at you if you start telling second hand stories of children’s toys causing tables to levitate, talking to demons or Satan himself, claiming extraordinary powers, or stating you are in possession of arcane wisdom… I am simply questioning your intelligence, understanding of, and position in reality…

With that being said I do find that most here who have called themselves traditional while they maybe fooling themselves with the need for a God figure… Mostly they follow the same basic core beliefs of a so-called Laveyen… Man has the ability to change his mind often… I prefer to not to sway my personal beliefs or limit the right to change my mind with such trivial things as a prefix before the title…

Closing thought:

There will be leaders and there will always be followers… This is the way of life and a inherently a good thing, as a world full of chiefs with no one to follow would not last very long socially…

Enjoy

Interesting post Ta2zz.

While I have always eschewed the false dilemma that is "the duality of man" I still respect the power this particular meme holds over even the most seasoned philosophers. You have pointed out the origins of this idea eloquently. Most people think in terms of "night/day, dark/light", etc. Many aren't aware of the subtle shift that is the transition from one of these diametrically opposed absolutes to the other, therefore closing themselves off from a rich palette of alternatives.

I did have an issue with your final statement, though.

This is also representative of a duality. I've read enough of your posts to know that you are aware of the omnipresent role of chaos in our perceptions and actions in the world. And while I agree with your statement in regards to a societal paradigm (macrocosm) I feel that it is beneficial to note that from an individual perspective (microcosm) the leader/follower dichotomy is worthless.

To live without leading OR following is to live in the moment. To me, this is the purest form of existence.

But then again, who the hell am I to say?

I don't know exactly what part of the spectrum you come from, but I would like to say that science can prove occult or arcane knowledge as all occultism is based on science...That is why it is called "Occult Science".

Occult Science gave birth to modern science. Before there was metallurgy there was alchemy, before there was Pharmaceutical Medicine, there was the Temple Of Horus..

The science that led to Sun Worship has proven to be very accurate because the Sun does have solar flares which can distort radio and television frequencies As a matter of fact we have solar minimum and solar maximum every ten years on a dime. ...The planets which were named by the various great occult civilizations have been proven that when planet comes into allignment with Earth they can change its force field...These have an effect on our system causing storms earthquakes....When the moon is in low orbit it causes the tide to rise and the police in many countries have reported crime increasing when the moon is full. Hence the term "Lunatic"

Occultism is an alternative explanation to the unexplained but still must be tested by science...There is a pallete of explanations within occultism but is separated into two categories: Western Mysticism and Eastern Mysticism which have have sub-categories. Then there is Theosophy which basically combines Eastern and Western systems.

Western Mysticism is more rational and scientific, while Eastern mysticism is more open immediately to the spiritual plane or spiritual explanations. But both are still esoteric in nature. I would suggest to anybody to read Aleister Crowley's book; "The Vision and The Voice" because Crowley puts a very good perspective on the subject of testing experiences... This came to mind because I was just reading it a liitle and was reading about the Ab-bul-Diz Working...Its very fascinating stuff. I like Crowley's humanity. He is not some arrogant ass trying to prove something. You have to ask yourself why has Hermeticism lasted and survived for as long as it has. Why has Freemasonry or Rosicrucianism survived? If these metaphysical sciences did not work, then why are there 2 million members of the Masonic Lodge, and an estimated 2 million Rosicrucians and Hermeticist? If these were selling snake oil, then these would've collapsed.

These organizations were even persecuted by the Catholic church and survived after the fact...

So, blackacre66, if I get this straight you are saying couldn't exist if there was no religion/mythology/...
If so, I'm agreeing whole-heartly. Because of the fact that if there wasn't something to investigate or put question marks around it there was no science.

However, I also believe if no single religion existed and we humans would have evolved from the bacteria towards the specimen we are now today in a religion-free world, science still would have existed. This because of the fact we humans (and probably all other animals) have a curious instinct. It is to say, nature endowed us animals with curiosity. An aspect wich can be used to survive (just as evolution wants). Tough, we now have a "faster" way to progress our intelligence/knowledge thanks to every single religion and their hypocrite ideas.

Before there was religion there was science, a higher science that was practiced on a global scale...A hint of this is the stories of Atlantis, the Pyramids of Giza, The Statues on Easter Island, The rotunda at Stonehenge...We in our modern age still say these civilizations were far more advanced. But along came new thinking or shall we say a "distortion". That distortion is religion which has hijacked the rationale of science and the age of reason...The purveyors of religion is Christendom and their many sects as well as false ancient mystery schools that they call Seminaries.

Zeus is Christ and Venus is Mary. The power of Occult wisdom is too dangerous to those who want to control our rationale by inventing new conflicts through religion...If we were to agree on this one point, then we can all make the World a better place by bringing religion into the light it needs to be seen in. As an antagonizer and instigator...Unfortunately not many people are getting it and unfortunately there are people and special interest who are profiting from exploitation of ignorance. But there is a light I am seeing in this forum and that is the Black Flame which shines brighter than any light claiming to be illumination.

Hail Satan

Science wasn't before religion. They both came to life at the same time. Within the prehistory the very first religions occured. People saw natural events and didn't know what to think of it. Some where driven by their natural instinct "curiosity" and started to investigate some of these natural events. Others who were afraid tought it was that "air" or "ground" were angry. Soon later they changed it by "the god of the air" or the "god of the ground". And so on. The people driven by their curiousity split up in on one side "the priests" who linked their observations to the gods. Others were more critical and searched for the real cause and for more answers that could give a real explanation. These were later called "scientists".

Both groups co-exist near each-other. Both are exploiting each other. The religious group links unexplained observations to "god" or "a god", while science exploits religion by investigating their beliefs to get a better understanding of the "why" and "how".

Then again, it is just my opinion, nobody can be 100% sure who was first. Religion or science? The only thing I know is that both more or less need each other to exist.

So, before christianity came and ruined it all, mankind was 'far more advanced' than now? Evidence of this is a few carved stoned heads, the pyramids, etc?

Yeah and like, where is the skycrane that picked up those many hundreds of tons stones and put them in place with only a paper thin gap between each one? Our civil engineering sucks so bad compared to the ancient Egyptians because it is corrupted by commercialism...Our computers are getting smarter but we have been getting dumber...Jules Vernes said; "As technology increases men's minds will become smaller"...Everything we build is being made smaller and powerful but yet it is more fragile than ever. Any electronic device can be burnt up by EMP waves.

Well, Dan the only hint of flying machines if there were; are found at the Aztec or Myan Temples that have images carved or painted on the walls that appear to be visitors from outer space or could be ancient astronauts...and there are embedded images that look like runways in the Mountains of Peru or Columbia...Then again as witches flying on broomsticks symbolizes astral projection, these could have been an image of astral travelers...So who needs to fly when you have astral travel? You ever have dreams of flying? You could have been astral projecting or astral traveling.

there are giant crystal spheres in the Atlantic that no one can remove but they are said to have powerful frequencies.

The Crystal radio comes from Occultism as does radar.

You see our civilization is pathetically flawed by materialism and the commercialism that drives it by creating consumption...The digital age has connected us but yet we are probably more dysfunctional than the ancient civilizations ever where...probably because it is easier to spread rumors through mass communications.

Okay I have to chew on this a little more, but here goes. I may have to bite my lip on some stuff I've written...I am not afraid to edit my conclusions from time to time...I just write from the raw instinct and tons of stuff I have collected in my minds library over the years...I have a book by Aleister Crowley before me. On the back it has a logo that looks like a crest which may be the OTO crest. It says in the middle of the logo, "The Equinox" On banners it reads: The Method Of Science The Aim Of Religion" so I think that improves your position and yet does not exactly discredit what I have been writing here.

I mean look at the expansion of the Roman Empire which influenced the European continent and the Middle East, and was later replaced by the "Holy Roman Empire". The Romans conquered pagan civilizations and trampled them to the point there is vague record of their existence or of their culture unless you get the info from Manuscripts written by the Vatican...The Druid religion was assimilated or destroyed when the Romans defeated them.

A slight hint: someone has to make/adapt all of our technology.
Even so, if I take you on your word; you are saying we are becoming more and more stupid. Now tell me, what about the advancements humanity has had the last 20 years, or even last 100 years? We managed to communicate with each other by a little device called "cell phone". 30 Years ago it was almost impossible to communicate with each other by a device not greater then your hand.

I have to agree there is more commersialism today then any time before. But do not forget it gave us the opputunity to advance technologically. And even so, man didn't re-invented new things. Technology has always been based on natural events and/or observations. How the egyptians build there pyramids? I don't know, but I wouldn't be surprised if they already invented some sort of crane we later on used to built other things. And with the coming of new people made it more advanced and easier to use.

I agree we have made progress, but as I said we are dysfunctional. Dysfunctional because we live not only in the age of information, but in the age disinformation as well. The science we have achieved is obvious but higher science is being suppressed because commercialism and capitalism are taking precedence. When the Roman Church was formed, they had suppressed the advancement of medicine and science and called it witchcraft...Why? I believe it was because they were wanting to control the advancement of technology that could be used against them.

Also the technology or engineering the ancients achieved was motivated by something that cannot be denied, and that is the convergence of the spiritual and material which is what gives us Thoth "As above, So is below"...Man's science then was purely spiritually motivated and there was not as much religious conflict because the Egyptian system did accept male and female deities as did Babylonians and Assryian systems and latter Greek and Roman., whereas today's technology is geared toward social progress and creating a common market as well as Capitalism.

I have always wondered what if the Egyptians had power tools to carve and cut all those stones? Can you imagine what Egypt would look like today? Part of the reason Egypt had built their Pyramids the way they did was because Portland cement was not yet invented. I think I still like the stone cutting better than concrete, it looks nicer.

I hope that if you haven't delved into understanding Egyptology, you might consider giving it an honest effort...

I also hope I stayed on target...It is early in the morning and I have not yet had coffee.

I watched an A&E special not too long ago, where a group of scientists recreated a miniature pyramid using smaller versions of the equipment they (the Egyptians) used to build their pyramids. Winches, pulleys, levers, etc. No magical alien UFOs or any of that other garbage conspiracy nuts like to talk about.

The idea that we are version 2 of a human technological society is a very romantic idea, but not one supported by fact.

Yeah, but it was a "Scaled Down" version...I've seen this documentary...I personally think they may have used magnetic rings of some sort...The Egyptians were already electroplating vessels with gold and bronze...Archaeologist have discovered plating faciitlies somewhere around Egypt...They used alkaloids from grapes and citrus to charge the plating solution.

If the Egyptians knew of electroplating they may have known about electromagnetism.

The alien UFO conspiracy has been put forth by famous writers such as Zecharia Sitchin who believes the hybrid beings were called the Anunaki built Atlantis..Its very interesting to note that the name Anunaki is similiar to the word Anakim or Anak which is found the Hebrew Bible or Old Testamanent of Christian bibles. The Amalakites mentioned in Joshua were apparently the "The Sons of Anak"...I think the story of the hybrid beings were fabricated from the account in Genesis Chapter 6 about another race called the Nefilim which were considered by Christian and some Jewish scholars to be heavenly beings or Fallen Angels who came down and had sexual relations with human women and had offspring who were hybrid giants...It is open to debate about these though, because in the same chapter and almost same line of text they are called "Sons Of God" "Heroes of Old" or "Renowned Heroes of Old" indicating they were some sort of warring people...Now there is a practice in some Eastern religions that practice something called "Astral Sex" and in the Catholic daemonology there should be a reference to Incubi and Succubi which according to these are sexual spirits...I personally think the Catholics may have stolen their knowledge from the Lesser Key of Solomon.

Do you think it is likely that secret hidden technology(that remains hidden to this day!) was used to do something contemporary technology (admittedly with a huge labour force)could have accomplished?

I suppose in the absence of concrete proof either way, anything is possible. But if one were to filter this through occams razor only one of these possibilities seems probable.

You know I think it would be funny if a company like Sears did a commercial for their line of tools in Egypt...Can you imagine Bob Villa going around handing the ancient stone workers impact hammers and robot grip wrenches? lol!

to be honest I never heard of occams razor, thats a new one for me dude...there are probable theories developed in the late 1900s and throughout the 20th century that have been ruled out by scientist who resisted the alternative explanations. It could be because the so called "Mother Church" or Elitist in Occult circles suppressed this knowledge to keep things going...It could also be that there is already a clear explanation and we are just running on fantasy.

For the record, 'OCCAMS RAZOR' is a scientific principle that basically states fewer assumptions are better.
When the playing field between competing theories seems to be equal, the principle recommends selecting the theory that makes the fewest assumptions and introduces the fewest entities.

Isaac Newton stated the rule: "We are to admit no more causes of natural things than such as are both true and sufficient to explain their appearances."

In my opinion keeping this principle fresh in ones mind acts as a sort of bullshit filter.

This is pure sience fiction. Indeed the egyptians plated coffins and maybe statues with gold and other metals. But you seem to forget that magnetism just has been discovered the last couple of 100 years. Even so, the egyptians used this method indeed to plate statues and so on. But did they know how it occured? Did they know, or had the intelligence to understand what happened within their vase? Did they know "how" they could glue the metal to the vessel? I didn't think so, otherwise scriptures would have been found where it all is explained. And this has never been found.

And this is one of the many proofs that ufo's couldn't have helped us.

I don't know if this is old news to most of you or not. But, if I understand correctly, the Sumerians are our oldest culture as we know of. Yet these people had detailed hieroglyphs positioning the planets to be revolving around the sun as well as naming our farthest planets in our solar system. Yet they call Earth the seventh planet, not the third, as they believed we came from a planet not yet discovered by us which is referred to as the heavens. How could they know of our farthest planets? Either they had some telescope or other means to see them, or they are on to something else.

Another thing interesting is their story of the origin of man, even containing a flood, is very similar to that of the three majors today, yet these discoveries were made before these other faiths came about. Is it possible they stole the Sumerians idea?

There are far more conspiracy theories based on quasi science regarding ancient knowledge than there is evidence to support these claims. For instance, I bet you can't produce evidence to support your claim about the Sumerians. This is in no way inflammatory toward you, you are not the first person to be convinced by good rhetoric.

If you can indeed produce evidence that the ancient Sumerians had an accurate model of the solar system I will apologize now, in advance. Please excuse me if I find the possibility of such an eventuality coming to fruition to be highly unlikely.

I think the Sumerian are most likely the oldest tribes and they may have branched out into other parts of the Earth with commerce or just expanded by conquest...There is some archaeological evidence that suggest they may have traveled to the North American continent looking for copper since copper is not a geologically available as Iron is and there are mounds believed to be step pyramids in Illinois and other parts of the Midwest America. There have been ancient copper mines discovered in Montana...The Sumerians probably heavily influenced Egyptian development. The Judeo Christan Bible probably supports this theory but explains it from another perspective...The Semitic tribes of Noah (Post Flood) and later Abraham came from Mesopotamia or Chaldea to settle in Canaan (Now Palestine / Israel), but none the less in the same vicinity as the Sumerians. The Semitic tribes then exiled to Egypt and lived their long enough to have shared their technology and understanding of Babylonian or Sumerian systems.

Please suffer the video, but it does have pictures of the hieroglyphs. The Annunaki, I think, have a very interesting meaning to their name.

Hey I only said; "I think", and good for you policing the accuracy of information...As for the coffins, they were probably made of acacia wood and then inlaid with gold smelt.

This is basically a one-liner with added punctuation to stretch it out. Do it again and face a temp ban. That goes for other members as well.

I suppose in the absence of concrete proof either way, anything is possible. But if one were to filter this through occams razor only one of these possibilities seems probable.


You mean to tell me that Stonehenge wasn't created by Telepathic Druids who had mastered the art of Levitation! Dan, why must you spoil everything! What next, no Santa?!?! I do agree that a massive workforce (which is unheard of today in that sense) was probably the source behind many and/or all of the things that we today consider "wonder" of the world.
