Osiris came from the west according to myth. He was born from the sea. He appeared as a local god in the city of Ded in the Nile Delta. Isis was sometimes called the goddess of the west.
The Ark of the Covenant as described in Genesis XXV in the specifications drawn up by Jehovah and given to Moses on the mountain of the lord may have been a gigantic Leyden Jar, of gold leaf inside and outside and wood between. It was a wagon. As it rolled it generated electricity which was gathered by the goats hair brushes and deposited as a great charge inside and outside the box. (Holy of holies.) (The gods knew electricity. Electra was a Greek Goddess. Electrum was amber from which that generated electricity.) (Today large gasoline trucks drag a chain on the ground or along the pavement to prevent such a charge of electricity from gathering inside the tank.) The round gold Knobs were to hold the charge like the knob on the Leyden Jar. Thus the charge killed a man. This Ark of the Covenant was undoubtedly a product of Egypt and the god Horus.
There is indication that while the men or mankind owned the land, the gods owned the men. How much more profitable would be a herd of men than a herd of cattle, for men brot everything for the sacrifice? for how much more valuable is the possession of man's mind than the ownership of land. There is also evidence too lengthy to quote in detail that the gods of the Jehovah strain proclaimed an equity in the Israelites that required the gods of Egypt to acquiese to a removal. And thus only certain lands were offered, and the Israelites passed over some lands almost as trespassers.
All the Devils of Milton's story [Paradise Lost] were the local gods mentioned elsewhere in this book. Existing side by side they sometimes maintained control by coalition, even as the wet and dry politicians of today sometimes swing their forces together. Exposure was impossible for they all were practicing the same methods, and for one god to expose the methods of the oracles of the opposing god would be suicide for himself. Thus the Jews consulted the oracle of Beelzebub against the direction of Jehovah, yet Jehovah would not expose the methods of Beelzebub, lest Beelzebub expose Jehovah.
Direct evidence may never be found, but circumstances indictate that Julius Caesar's main business in Egypt was to secure the consent of the Priests of Ammon to his world rulership. Caesar himself was a high priest according to Josephus. When the weakness of the organization became apparent Caesar's ambition mounted, ambition not to be king, but to be god. Indeed in the time of Augustus Caesar daily sacrifices were made by the masses to Octavius as a god. Unlike Alexander, Julius Caesar preempted the powers of Egypt and was directly assassinated as a result of a whispering campaign of the priesthood. Egypt and Rome warred under Antony and Octavius and Rome won, but three hundred years later Constantine was won over to the other side. Such fluctuations of power had happened often. The seclusion of the Popes at Avignon is another example. The struggle between the priests of Typhon and those of Osiris is a third. Milton has dramatized this sublimated story in his Paradise Lost. Satan was the symbolized form for the Priests of Sat in the temple of Sat in Egypt under Typhon.
The supremacy which the Papacy inherited from the time of Constantine was indeed the supremacy of the Amphictyonic League of Greece. The League of Amphictyon goes back to the time of Troy. Before the time of Troy the Pelasgi of Greece were settled by the Priests of Ammon. Priests directed more then than in the time of Marquette and La Salle.
During the Middle Ages the Papacy struggled with the German Emperors to maintain world supremacy. The Germans complained of the Ultramontainism, the money that passed beyond the Alps to build the cathedrals of Rome and never to return.
Hiram of Tyre was a worshipper of Baal (History of Masonry) and knew not Jehovah. Hiram belonged tot he Napthalia or the priests of the apron or linen. Hiram's craftsmen built the temple for Solomon who had no craftsmen. Solomon was practically converted to Baal for he admired the higher cult and Jessica introduced the worship of Ball to Jerusalem. This Jehovah would not stand for he above all was a "jealous" god. Hence the line of Solomon was to be destroyed. As a matter of fact Jehovah's jealousy was the destruction and the dispersion of the Jews, as Jehovah undertook to wreak vengeance by bringing in the armies of nearby nations.
Masonry acknowledges the Great Architect, makes morality a skill and a training--not a miraculous conversion.
Beyond the history of Masonry there is unwritten evidence that the lodge is the product of the religion of Bell or Baal. Scotland, England, Ireland show evidences of the religion of Bell. Christianity and Masonry join up in agreement on antidiluvian mythology, yet Masonry differs from Christianity in doing no proselytising, in doing no healing, in avoiding many emotional disturbances common to Christianity.
The Illi theocracy went underground during the Roman ascendancy. For about three hundred years Christians were persecuted, churches were held in secrecy. But when Constantine was converted, supposedly by a miracle in which he saw a vision in the sky, the Christian Church came out of hiding and took open secular control in Rome. All the Oracles simultaneously ceased to speak: Christ's words were fulfilled. Power had shifted to the control of the Emperor. The Pope took to himself the prerogative of crowning kings. At this point Christian Scientists claim that the power of healing was lost to the Christians. As worldly power was gained, spiritual power was lost.
Christ's words upon the cross are enigmatical. "Eli, Eli why hast though forsaken me?" They seem to indicate the expectation of some one who was to help him down. He was, indeed, taken down by Joesph of Arimathea, a rich man, who only claims him after he was crucified, as if that were his only cue.
The Greek word for king is Baselius. Base is the word for foot, bass the word for low, and bas means down, so surely baseli means below the gods. Thus the king was below the gods. This furnishes the bases for the European King's claim for Divine Right in ruling.
The Island of Patmos was not far from Eleusis and Samothrace, the homes of the secret rites. It was on the Island of Patmos that Saint John saw Christ, pictured as an old man with white hair, garbed in white, with a golden girdle. (Rev. I.) This was about 90 A.D. If this were not a vision, Christ is presiding there at the head of a meeting of Elders. (II.) He held the place as a result of going through the ordeal of being crucified. In Rev. III Christ speaks of "the Amen," using the word as a noun, calling them the "faithful and the true." Cannot this denote a relationship with the Amen of Egypt? The Amen or Ammon were the secret rulers of the world, the same who controlled Alexander and told him to found the city of Alexandria. They were in turn to control Roman Empire during the attempted world theocracy during the Middle Ages. In somewhat glorified terms John describes the twenty-four elders wearing crowns before Christ.
The ingredients of Christianity were already prepared by the secret mysteries of the Illi gods, though they contended among themselves very often. Such similarities and many others are mentioned in such researches as The Golden Bough. They bring one to the brink of wondering if, after all, the crucifixion of Jesus Christ were not a "super collosal" miracle play, based on such secret rites as were given at Eleusis and Samothrace, played on a grand and real scale in a large city for the benefit of the secular public--or as Diodorus said, "What was done in secret, later was done openly." If so, for this drama Christ was prepared and schooled from infancy.
Mystery is mentioned in the New Testament twenty-one times. The word signifies mastership. Whatever the Master did in ancient times was a mystery. In London in 1666 a paper mentions "The freemen of the mystery of Carpenters." Above the mystery stood the miracle, the wonder of the gods. Between the miracle and the mystery stood the magic, or the work of the great one, the Magi, such as the three wise men.
The Essenic customs are said to be like the customs followed by the worshippers of Orpheus, the pupil of Apollo, and together with Musaeus, a pot of the darkest age of Greece. Christ and John the Baptist were said to have been Essenes.
The oldest mystery is the story of Osiris, son of Saturn, brother and husband of Isis, father of Horus, and brother to Typhon. Typhon kills Osiris and Isis retrieves the body in dissevered parts and Osiris is proclaimed arisen from the dead. Zoroaster brought this mystery to Persia, Cadmus brought it to Greece, Orpheus brought it to Thrace, and Melampus brought it to Athens.
The worse (or perhaps the best) happened; the gods interbred with the snakes and lost their identity in the lands that they conquered. With the passing of the gods, universal decay set in. All the countries that we have mentioned took on a depressed condition and there was not one that withstood the great world depression.
There is legend in Egypt that the Serpents robbed the gods of their immortality. In Babylonia the Legend of Napishum states that the Serpents stole the ambrosia from the gods and the gods lost their immortality. In India the god Indara was supposed to have preserved the ambrosia from the Snakes. In the garden of Eden (Babylon) the Gods (Eloihim) drove the Snakes (Adam and Eve and the Serpent) out of the garden. Legend states that Saint Patrick drove the serpetns out of Ireland, (possibly the passing of the Druids who were Snakes). There are no real snakes on many of the islands of the earth today. There is a universal pictograph of the serpent entwined about the cross. This symbolizes the universal struggle between the two cults.
The story of the garden of Eden and of Adam and Eve is but the sublimation of the story of the struggle of the Snake worshipping aboriginees of the Euphrates Valley against the gods of the Eloihim, who in Sumerian were term the "Ilu." The Garden there spoken of was Babylon "The gate of the gods" as the name means. Babylon surrounded by high walls was indeed a garden in the strict sense of the word for it was large enough to hold agricultural grounds as well as houses. Into this garden the gods took the proletarians or "forerunners of the gods" on probation, to make "like us." The Serpent priest or Satan warned them they would only be slaves. (The Pharaoh of Egypt was called a Dragon, Ezekial 29:3, and the soldiers of the Pharaoh were called Dragons. Thus it may be easily seen why the children of Israel were prone to worship the Serpent, the emblem of the gods from whence they came.) Such conditions might be almost modern comparatively speaking, had the Pilgrim Fathers invited the Indians into their villages "To make men of them or to make them in their own image." Indian Snake doctors and priests might advise the contrary.
Thus man, unwilling to follow the advice of the gods, was suffered to go without the fruits of the garden.
The Druids of Britain called themselves the Snakes; the Chiefs of Votan, mentioned in the Popul Vuh in Guatamala, styled themselves the great race of the Dragon or the Snake. In later Babylonia the Hierophants were the reputed sons of the Serpent God. In Crete the famous image of the Serpent Goddess has been found and some call it the image of Eve. In Greece, Apollo slew the Phython or Serpent. In Israel, the common people were always making images of the Serpent and offering worship. In India the serpent is still worshipped.
The Mahas-Bratas were the High-Brits a word that is far reaching and descriptive in its import...
A few of the Maha-Bratas penetrated across the mountains and went into Tibet to establish the godship of the grand Lama (Dalai) and to build the sacred city of Lassa where today about half of the men are priests.
Christianity pushed the religion of the Asen gods [Els] to Norway and Sweden. From there was the Christian religion moved in, a band of settlers moved to Iceland to have their freedom of worship unhampered by the religion of Rome. It was here that the Eddas were collected together and written down. They were already old at this time. These Saga or Sayings combined with the oral myth of the northern Europe are the source of the information relative to the prehistoric gods. It is scanty indeed. The Greek and Roman material is one hundred times so plentiful. Enough exists however to show that the Nordic Gods were the same as the gods of the Levant. The Gardens, Halls, warfare, altars, sacrifices, marriage and family life, were the same. Most of the stories are primitive exaggeration, yet the raw material could not have originated sui generis. The savages of the north could not have invented the civilization of the halls and gardens of their own accord. The gods were agricultural pioneers seeking a foothold on the continent. There was a partial failure.
There was a second and older race of Nordic Gods, the Wanen, who dwelt in Wanenheim or Mitgard. The Mitgard Serpent and the Mitgard Dragon ship indicate that the Wanen were the serpent gods, an earlier organization than the Ely Gods everywhere. There was a war in heaven between the Asen gods and the Wanen gods. When peace was finally established hostages were exchanged to guarantee good faith. Thus we can see that the Asen gods conquered to some extent the giants and the snake gods. This coincides with the story of Hesiod who told of the gods warring the giants and of the final supremacy of the gods with the selection of Zeus to reign.
The giants were a slothful dull older people than the gods. The gods built Asgard and drove the giants to Utgard or "Beyond the Garden." This was very much like the Elohim drove mankind from the Garden of Eden in Babylon.
The tree of Knowledge was forbidden Adam for it was not the intention of the Gods (Elohim) to have man partake of the secrets, even as a southern slaveholder could baptize and convert a hundred slaves to Christianity and not share the proceeds of his plantation with any one of them.
Assyria was founded by Assur who came from Babylon; and Babylon was settled from Lagash. Lagash carries the pictograph of a garden and no doubt is related to the garden of As or Ash. The Assyrians were a heavy bearded white people of Aryan stock and could not have been indigenous to the Euphrates valley. That they were a seafaring people originally is shown by the fact that Sargon, "Lord Digger of the Earth," was pictured as half fish, like Moloch, and was also called lord of the seas.
Denmark was originally called Gotland and the many islands in the Baltic presented a condition like that near Greece.
The etymology of this word Yggdrasil explains this myth which coincides definitely with the theme of this book. Yggdr was a name for Odin and it meant thot: as and il have previously been shown to mean both god and light. Ash also means light. Thus the thot of the gods of light encircles the earth as a tree of light with branches or god empires established all over the world and with roots or origins in heaven the home of the gods where wisdom and knowledge existed as a source or root. Thus Yggdrasil was the tree of knowledge which was forbidden to the occupants of the garden of Eden (Woden, Odin, Weden, Wednesday, Eden, Garden of Eden).
The city of Babylon had walls eighty feet high, about a hundred gates, and the river ran under the walls to furnish water.
In reading the code of Hammurabi, and familiarizing oneself with the social scheme of things in Babylon a close resemblance between the gods of the Euphrates Delta and those of Genesis may be seen. In the very first and second chapters of Genesis may be seen the coming of the Eloihim (ilu) to the valley. Genesis 2:6 starts the description "there was not a man to till the ground." "But there went up a mist from the earth and watered the whole face of the ground." (The deserts formed during the Glacial Age were watered during the melting of the glaciers. At the same time the gods came to the valley and brought agriculture to the troglodytes. "And the Lord-God (Eloihim the original--and plural) planted a garden eastward in Eden." There may have been many Edens, or Gardens.) The word paradise is from the Greek "paradeisos" a park of the gods. It was to such a paradise or Eden that the Prince of Tyre had been, Ezekial 28:13 "Thou (King of Tyre) hast been in Eden, the garden of God; every precious stone was thy covering," etc. And 28:2 in the same "Thou hast said 'I am a God' . . . yet thou art a man." 3 "Behold thou art wiser than Daniel; there is no secret they can hide from you." (We see here the aspect of trouble between the kings and the gods and the way the gods rules.)
In the sands of the Delta of the Euphrates there has been found gold and silver jeweled carvings and beaten work of the greater refinement than farther up the river. The gods and the upper class were Caucasian and not Semitic.
Like Moloch, Sargon was a man represented as half fish, that is that he came from the sea.
Cadmus, the "Phoenician God" that brought the alphabet to Greece [a]nnd founded Thebes may have been a god of the serpent cult who opposed the sun cult and broke the bonds of secrecy that surrounded all the mysteries of the Illi by making written language available to the public.
The greatness of classical Greece was due to the culture of the Illi which for the first time in the history of the world was made available to the public.
He [Zeus] came from Crete. He landed at Dodona, and established the Oracle.
Philological paleontologists have shown the similarity of hundreds of words in the Inca language to the Aryan roots, either in Sanskrit, Greek, or English.
The falcon or eagle was used as a symbol of power in Peru that same as in Egypt. The falcon-headed man is chiseled on the gate of Tianhuanco in Peru; the falcon-headed man appears, too, in Egypt on the Tombs in Memphis.
The cult of the sun was universal for the Els had circumnavigated the globe. Standing opposed to this cult of the sun was the much older and more savage cult of the serpent. In the Popul Vuh one speaker states "I am a snake," which meant that he belonged to the serpent cult. The serpent on the cross was just as appropriate in South America as in Europe.
The Myth of the Incas relates that their rulers came from the "Island of the Sun." (Poseidon.)
Modern stonework looks shabby when placed beside or imposed upon the work of the Inca. It is well worth recalling that a parallel exists in the round towers of Ireland and the later stonework that was placed upon them.
In the sacred book of southern Mexico, the Popul Vuh, there are many instances of parallelism between the culture of Old Mexico and of Old Egypt. Prescott states that the aristocracy of the Old Mexico was in many ways like the aristocracy of the Europeans in the middle Ages. They feasted, drank, danced, and enjoyed music in a very refined way; there was, however, a very sordid vestige of cannibalism that remained as though the high breeding of the nobility had been stained by the admixture of a baser influence. The gods of the Popul Vuh were a reasoning and thinking people. As in Egypt, they resorted to inbreeding to keep their blood strain pure. Apparently that was unsuccessful.
In Mexico the legend related that the bearded god Quexalcoatl came in and taught the natives all the arts. In both countries the chronologies indicate that this happened about 3000 B.C.
Today all Peruvians are not colored. There remain some red haired white people with blue eyes.
In both instances [Mexico and Peru] the progress of the invaders was aided by the fact that the people expected the white men to come again as gods. The legends of these countries tell that the original conquerors who came centuries before the time of the Spaniards were bearded white men, who came in the ships from the north and that they were considered as gods. The white gods brought in a new way of living. Quexaquatal and Packacamac, the respective gods, taught the people agriculture, weaving, and masonry.
Before Mexico and Peru fell into the hands of Cortez and Pizarro decay had so progressed that those empires resembled overripe fruit, ready to fall at the first slight disturbance. The conquests of those two empires were similar in most respects. The main impulse that urged the conquerors forward was gold. The wealth of gold in the empires was fabulous; the gold offered Pizarro filled a large room; more would have been added had not the flow been stopped.
Deuce or Deaus was the Irish word for Zeus.
The nobility of ancient Ireland was called the Aries, whence the name of the country Ireland. The Airemen were the free lords. (We have the name Harriman, a late American Financier.) Above the Aires ranked the Foleith (the modern name is Foley) who were the Leuds, (the Lees). The Irish name for chief was "cleith." Mal was the name for prince. The Aires elected a king, the Rig Erind; The Ard Rig Erind. Rig appears in the Indian literature in the words Rig Veda.
Contrary to nineteenth century historians, England was a highly developed civilized country before the Roman occupation. London was a thousand years old. There were good roads, good houses, horses, and cattle.
The Faroe Islands have a bay named Gods-haven. The Baltic sea has an island named Got-land.
As the red haired gods went up the Shannon river and settled in central Ireland, they met the dark haired, dark eyed, smallish cave-dwelling type of the Mediterranean savage. The Conquerors, the Tuath de Danaan, were a tall, blue-eyed, red-haired Caledonian type of Hall dwellers. Today both types may be seen among the Irish people.
The Valkyries, the battle maidens on swift horses, were without doubt the Amazonian maids who went into battle, the same as men did.
Valhalla, the gold and silver Palace of Odin, also suggests the gold and silver Palace of Poseidon. Valhalla was the halls of the Vals. It also suggested the halls of Lokapala Bhakhyana Parva, the Indian Sanskrit name for the Halls of the Celestials. It suggests the Halls of Tara, and the Halls of Olympia, and even the halls of the English Aristocracy of the Middle Ages.
The history and the mythology of Ireland goes farther back in time than that of England, Scandinavia, France, or Germany. The treasures of the Museum of Dublin show the proof. While the continent was covered with ice, Ireland enjoyed a pleasant climate. Ireland belongs to the sea; England to the continent.
A king who had found out all the secrets of the gods was a danger. Such a king was Solomon. Nebuchadnezzar also filled his temple with gold from the temple at Jerusalem. Thus it was that the Theocratis priesthood adjusted the balance of power. A king could only become so great. If he attempted to go farther he was checkmated. Win, lose, or draw, the Temple always won. Whether in Tyre, Jerusalem, Babylon, or Memphis, the gold was always in the Temple. Should a king desire to break the shroud of their mysteries and desire to become one of them he was generally cut off. Only the initiated could be a god: such as Enoch (whose name means initiated) who walked with God and God took him. That is, he went with the gods and lost direct contact with the people.
To broaden the view of this Theocratic control of the near East, consider the case of the king of Tyre. As in the Middle Ages the Pope of Rome stood above the kings, so in the first millennium before Christ the gods yet stood above the Kings of the Levant.
Going farther into the method of control we find in Judges 10 "the Lord was hot against Israel and he sold them into the hands of the Phillistines . . . and into the hands of the children of Ammon." This intimates a relationship between Jehovah and Bel and Ammon. The gods of the Red Sea recognized the gods of the Mediterranean! This indeed shows that the lands were divided among the gods as is indicated in Deuteronomy 32:8 "When the most High divided the Nations . . . Jacob is the lot of His (Jehovah's) inheritance." The Most High may have been Amen-Ra, it can only be inferred.
All the information that may be gathered about the Canaanites indicates a form of Theocratic control just like that of Israel except that the god was Bel.
Numerous writers have shown that Arabia was the locale of the Book of Job. They have shown how the place names agree with the personal names, and how the Arabian scenes fit those of the Book. In Job 1-6 the sons of God (Elohim) presented themselves, before the Lord, and Satan was among them. A clan of the Els would fit in well as the sons of God, and Satan seems to be a high priest of the serpent cult, a form of worship that was dying out before the onslaughts of the sun cult. In such and only such an interpretation can any sense be placed in the lines. Job as the follower of the El and no serpent cult could dissuade him. The two cults were at friendly parlance. Such rich shieks as Abraham and Job presented valuable gifts to the gods and they were the source of living for the heads of the theocracy.
The Arabian word Samsuiluna means the "sun is our god" and thus connects the Els of Arabia with the Els of Illium or of Troy, and with the Pharaoh Amen-hotep of Egypt who was at first a worshiper of light. Today the sultans are generally men selected from a superior race and are not of the local people.
All the local gods were called "Als." Mohammed framed the word Allah from the article il and the word Al thus ila or Alla.
There seemed to be an understanding that the Mediterranean was the sea for one race of Els and the Red Sea for the other. When Solomon was at the heighth of his power he decided to build large ships which he launched at the port of Elath. Hiram of Tyre had a fleet with that of Solomon and they sailed together on long voyages of three years each bringing back rich cargoes and hundreds of talents of gold. So, near as Jerusalem was to the Mediterranean, it yet was at the time of Solomon the capital of the Red Sea. It may be seen that Solomon's achievements fitted into an already established extant sea economy. It was not voyages of discovery, it was rather voyages of commerce. But later, after Jehovah had divested Solomon of his power the great King Jehosphaphat arose and tried to imitate Solomon. He built ships at Elath for trade, but God destroyed those ships.
Babylon means the gates of the Elohim. It was so named from the many famous gates the pierced its walls.
Thus Heathenism and Paganism were ploughed under to prepare the soil for Christianity; and so today, there are those who would plough under Christianity to prepare the soil for the seeds of Communism, a no better creed, but a different priesthood.
Constantine, the most wretched man himself, became the Stalwart support of Christianity and in his time darkness spread over Europe.
Heathenism was driven to Norway and thence to Iceland.
So since it was not to their interest to have anyone know the Lord God Almighty was once the Jackal of Egypt, history was blotted out during the Dark Ages.
The power of a dictatorship can erase any history. One might shudder to think what would happen to the names of Washington and Lincoln should this nation have been over-run by a ruthless dictator from Asia or Europe. The last vestiges of their sacred memory would perhaps remain in some of the remote mountainous regions, yet in all public civic Centers all books and evidences of their lives would have been burned and purged away.
Another story of another man relates that he held the history of North-western Europe unworthy of consideration. His ancestors were savages living in the woods, dying their bodies with the stain of berries, and incapable of any exalted civilization such as Rome, Greece, or Babylon had enjoyed for centuries. He studied in those places and later found that his own country had held a civilization equal to, if not beyond, those cultured cities in the south.
Real Estate was the Realm or the Regal Estate. When kingship and divinity were united, the earth was the Lords. No one but God owned the earth. Hence, large areas of land were termed dominions, for the domain comes from the Latin Dominus, a Lord, so truly in Pagan more than Christian areas the earth was the domain, belonging to the dominus or lord.
Very few people understand the financial control of the money priesthood. They deny the existence of such an entity and yet they must admit nearly all the gold in the world coalesed intot he American reserves as faith in other countries and their financial policies failed.
In the financial channels of American life it may be difficult to lay a hand upon the identical Joe the Whipper, the money scourge of our late '20s; nevertheless it is the writer's conviction that he was there and amply paid for his services.
Each American Citizen was literally scourging himself in the expectancy of becoming a high priest of the money Moloch. He must keep up with the Joneses or be forever damned and in 1929 came the year of the great flagellation.
Again let the reader examine the finances of the new government of Poland after the War of 1918. Poland was a newly created state and had no public debt, but in 1920, in two years, the public debt of Poland was 69 billions in U.S. equivalent. At the same time the debt of the whole U.S. government was 23 billions. This 69 billions of bonds were held by some European banks and no doubt were controlled by some central bank, the identity of which is left for the reader to surmise.
Should the reader doubt such a thing as world financial control, let him examine the activities of Lombard Street. Montague Norman, former head of the Bank of England, made secret trips to America, no doubt regarding financial matters and later the British pound was "pegged". This is one of the greatest financial achievements in the world, for by that method the near worthless money of England was revived and made valuable. By that method it was possible for England to import billions of dollars worth of goods which she would have been unable to purchase were her money permitted to seek its natural level of value. So far as the writer is aware, no other country was ever granted such a privilege.
Histories generally credit Florence and Venice as being wealthy because of trade with Asia, although none ever mentioned anything Asia brought from Europe, in fact Asia received gold for nearly everything she sent to Europe, such as silks, and spices, and jewels. These cities were money lending centers for the European Hinterland and the profit was spent on luxuries.
This money power of the Pagans, the Lombards, supposedly came in 568 from the upper lands of the Elbe, a truly Pagan territory. The Lombards were never a majority and their power was strong and scattered, going into Portugal, France and England.
The Renaissance was a revival of the Pagan Greek world and perhaps with Pagan money, due to a truce between Religion and money being made between the Lombards and the Pope after the Lombards had threatened Rome in 726. Tuitprand, the Lombard, presented the Pope with some conquered towns that laid the foundations for the Papl temporal soverignty and which was to have a profound influence upon history in Iraly, but what the Pope gave Tuitprand in return is not said. Was it the Lombard Pagan money power?
While several writers have spoken of a division of powers between the rulers of money and those of religion, there is no historical evidence to the knowledge of the writer. All that is evident is that money and religion went into the dark ages together and came out separate. Rome held control in religion, London ruled money. The church even forbade interest charging. It is the belief of the author that Christianity never converted money. In all the Religious wars of the middle ages, the crusades, etc., Paganism held the money.
Banking houses today simulate pagan temples in architecture as well as personnel. In early times the temple combined wealth and religion, the temples were the banks, and such a temple as formerly stood on the site of St. Paul's Cathedral was said to have been the Phoenician Temple and Banking House.
The Wall Street of London is Lombard Street. The French name for money-lender is Lombard. The Lombards came from Florence and Venice. These cities held fabulous wealth in the latter middle ages. It was the Lombards that started the Popes up in temporal wealth. Although professing Christianity at times, it seems the Lombards held their former pagan beliefs, if there were any beliefs outside money, and should they be left with their many, any religion would do.
The theme or obsession of the religious forces seems to be a revival of the past, when the world was ruled by religion, a return to the garden control, which would bring paradise on earth. The strength of the movement lies in the fact that it was at one time accomplished when Druidism held worldwide rulership and the Axe was the symbol of power. Mankind was docile and full of fear and could be controlled and pastured out. All the nations of Europe and Asia Minor were settled by migrations led by gods, in the manner that Jehovah led Israel.
No one denies that during the dark ages there was one central control of religion for Europe. Kings were crowned by men of the priesthood.
How much traffic between these people [the Illi] there was is yet to be established. They spoke one language, the Aryan. Their ships were larger than those in the time of Columbus, so they traveled the world.
This race of Gods is described in the Illiad by Homer. They also belonged to the Druids and the followers of the Ax. They also were the Acheans or Early Greeks and had connections with all Europe. Their culture matched, if not coincided with, the Early Irish. Later they became the Nobill and the Gentili, the high gods and the race of gods. The identity of the word illi has been purposely obliterated.
In the same manner as Heathen, the Pagan was given a downward push by the church in Southern Europe.
Pagus is the Latin and Greek word for farmer or rather villager. In old Gothic, Pagus was something like a county or township and in modern German Heide is the word for Pagan. Thus Paganism and Heathenism were, in reality, Ruralism as contrasted to the city, which during the Dark Ages was totally in the hands of Christianity.
Heathen means farmer or a person from the heath, and its disparaging significance came about when Christianity made its advent into Northern Europe. Coming into the large cities first, then in the smaller, it received its support from the fountain-head in Rome and Constantinople. The last to become Christians were the farmers who were reluctant to forsake their ancient rites. There is even today a vestige of this accursed method of disparaging the farmer. He is looked down upon by the city dweller, not knowing that the start of the downward push was given by Christianity in placing a disgrace upon the Heathen.
So much pressure was made, it is a matter of record that in early Paris the Heathen or Farmer was boycotted and failed to sell his produce unless he became a Christian and was baptized.
Hay was originally Hag and was the sacred product of the ground. The word Real Estate meant the Regal Estate, the sacred land not belonging to the common people who only lived on it by the grace of the druid God or his first Harry the Ra. Roy, or Rex, or Regis. Thus Agri meant Sacred King and Agriculture was the sacred culture of the King.
In Constantine's time the sacred groves of the Druids were cut down, Druid priests were slaughtered in numbers on the island of Mona.
Thus the first Greeks called themselves the Acheans which means people of the Axe, that is Druids, and volumes have been written to show the crossing of Irish and Greek cultures.
Returning to the Gardens, the Greek word Paradise is literally Para Deus or Dios, the Park of the Gods. It is a matter of written history that the Romans related that German Gods and Godesses dwelt in groves on the upper Elbe and on the northern islands. Most elaborately described were the Health resorts of the Priests of Aesculapius, the Greek God of Medicine, known today by all doctors. At these pleasant resorts, the patient placed himself wholly within the care of the God, and generally recovered, due to the sanitation, the mineral waters, the diet, etc., and should he have had an incurable disease he was told he had incurred the enmity of the God and could not recover his health. Such resorts as these were located in the mountains of Italy and Greece and even in central Germany and Austria.
Here the reader is asked not to conform to the classical outlook of history, not to think of Greece, of Rome, and later of Northern Europe, but to think of them all at the same time, for there truly were civilized people living in Northern Europe, England, and Ireland, in early Grecian days. The Gods of Greece and Rome ruled also in Northern Europe, and in the days of Constantine what ever Druid priest did not turn to Christianity was murdered and the Heathen temples were destroyed or turned into churches.
Such a place is Aachen, one of the oldest cities in Europe, the Druid capital of Europe, Aken is its name in Holland; all three names, French, German, Hollandish, agree it is the Axe. Here in this city Charlemagne wavered between Heathenism (Druidism) and Christianity, and though he was crowned by the Pope, that did not change him nor his descendants very much.
One remarkable feature regarding these gardens or parks is that they occupied the most desirable, the most healthful places, and that furnishes a clue in discovering them and distinguishing them from settlements of later times.
The gardens of the Gods were in reality thousands of enclosed sanctuaries throughout Europe from Ireland to Asia Minor. The Enclosure, for such a word is about the only generalization fitting all instances, is identified by some hundred fifty names in different languages, all, to a degree, meaning garden.
When Constantine made Christianity the state religion of Rome the persecuted Christians became the persecutors. Shortly after Emperor Theodosius permitted the burning of the Pagan Alexandrian Library in 391 A.D., for the sin of Heresy was the sin of Knowing.
...heresy was the following of the herierar or the one who knew. The most fitting example was that of Gordando Bruno who was found guilty of heresy because he said the world moved. The herus was a highly educated man who had to take cover in the dark ages.
The oak leaf is an emblem word by both allied and axis officers. The oak cluster is given as an award of bravery, for the oak signified a strong man. Once the reader knows, he will see the oak leaf emblem everywhere as ornaments derived from ancient European culture.
The Biblical Gods were the Elohim or the Aleim. Jehovah is a singular word, Je is the word for lord, and El is the word for God. Joel means Jehovah is God and Elijah means God is Jehovah. Ale or Eli means God, beyond question, Crudens Concordance gives many instances. One writer states Ale or Eli occurs in the Bible 17 times as Oak or Cedar tree, 99 times as God, and 48 times as a swearing and conjuring word. Elohim is used of 2500 times in the old testament and is the plural form of Gods, oak spirits, or lords of creation.
The Chapters of Genesis constitute a general rehearsing of Druidism, all direct evidence carefully expurgated and remaining undiscoverable until one looks directly and carefully at the text.
The Supreme Druid Ace was Odin, or Woden, and Eden of the Bible. The Garden of Odin and the Garden of Eden were identical. Oden had hundreds of names, quite likely since he was a world Ruler.
The God of the Ax was the personified Sword, that is a symbolical sword, the use of force as a divine right. This form of control extended thruout Europe particularly and partly into the rest of the world. Each God ruled as a governor or magistrate with power of life or death within his own domain, and yet in secret allegiance with the God system.
The Shape of the Mitre is that of the Ace of Spaces, which is a very broad sword.
Spade means sword. The King of Spades carries a broad sword.
The Christmas tree today is a Druid rite, even to a pointed tree, they sell for more money than a round one. Subconsciously all the people today are Druids.
The tree was the emblem for Druidism. The oak tree generally served the purpose, although in Egypt the Acacia or the Akak, a pointed shrub sufficed to symbolize the Druid strength.
The Ace of Spades was responsible for the well being of the people who were his property. The people were treated kindly, even as good cattle are well cared for, until time of the slaughter.
In the Middle Ages the church of Rome exercised the prerogative of Crowning the Kings who thus received divine right.
When the Duke of Windsor was King of England, it became the duty of the Archbishop of Canterbury to tell him he would not reign as King and marry a commoner, incident to show the power of the Church, which has a state connection in England.
Remaining today as a vestige of the power of the Druid God is the oath of the King of England to protect the church, and he in turn is crowned by the Arch-bishop, the modern Ace of Spades, similarly the church is so protected in Scotland.
The Ace of Spades, as the Druid God, went in disguise with a mask and wore a mitre upon his head.
This mitre, as illustrated, has since been copied by the Jewish High priest, by the Russian churchmen, the Romaan Popes and Cardinals, and the Episcopal churchmen of England. The mitre was called the Apex, a Flamen hat, supposedly word by Romulus.
The Shekina was the divine spot from whence the voice of God originated. Again we see the Egyptian Jackal as the god of the Israelites.
Jehovah even stated to David that he had not lived in a house since he left Egypt but was forced to dwell in a tabernacle.
In the thousand years from Exodus to Ezra, Ale Aleik led the Israelites from poverty to glory and to ruin. The tabernacle was an imposing tent but not unlike many of those of the present day Sheiks of the desert. The system of the Druid Priesthood with its gardens, groves, Temples, Hedges, Gates, Axes, and Sacred Harlot is covered by the Bible, but it also is everywhere else in Paganism. Gardens of Eden, Odin or Adon (is) were everywhere. Paradise meant park of the Gods.
Genesis XXXV states "and (Alim) God said to Jacob, 'Arise - go to Bethel and dwell there and make an altar unto God (Lal)'.". The Heathen divinities Ashtoreth and Baal - Zebub were called Alim. Aron states "Ale Aleik, these are thy Aleim who brot thee out of the land of Egypt." Cruden states Elim means strong oaks, perhaps a grove. Ale Aleik, God, the God Axe was one of the Aleim, or a strong oak. This alone would prove nothing were not the actions and words of Jehovah enough to identify him as one of the Druid Priesthood.
Jehovah is a singular name, the Elohim are plural. Jehovah Elohim should connote a person of a family or one of a priesthood. Much as Senator Huey Long was one of the Senate, and such prerogatives as belonged to Senator Long would not necessarily be those of the Senate of the United States of America, and one could be spoken of in a different manner than the other. The Elohim, it finally comes out, were the priesthood and Jehovah was only one of it.
Pachacamac - the Supreme being was worshipped by the Incas in Peru. In Oaxaca - Southwest of Mexico City, Father Francisco de Burgoa of Oaxaca wrote, "Human sacrifices were made by bending the victim over a great stone and tearing his heard out with a stone axe and carrying it tot he chief priest."
Human victims of the Axe went to the slaughter by the thousands, to our horror, yet historians state the same practice was done in prehistoric Ireland when it was governed by the Druids, and later in Carthage before the time of Rome.
Manx means Men Gods - for every Druid Priest was a God and his domain was a garden.
England was originally the Druid garden of Odin - or garden of Eden, a secret land ruled by Druid Priests. X was the sign of God.
Essex, Sussex, Wessex, are indicative of the original Gods - the Axe - though Historians derive the word from Saxons - the Swords people. But even this only evidences the story for the Sax was the Sword or the Axe of God, S being the sign of the Assen Gods of Asgard - one of the many gardens of the Gods.
One of the great Gods of the Druids was Hessus, the Strong Man. Some writers think this to be the same name as Jesus. At Western Germany is the country of Hess.
When Constantine accepted Christianity the oracles suddenly stopped. Two hundred of the most prominent oracles of the classic world suddenly ceased to speak. To some this was a miracle; to others it was only the pagan priests seeing the handwriting on the wall and changing over to Christianity. But in England all the druid priests had to be corralled and isolated on the island of Angelus and killed, before Christianity could replace Druidism. The struggle in Central Europe was spotted and oft-time bloody.
Some time in the early days of Christianity there was a band of Teutonic Knights who migrated thru central Europe and settled in what is now Pomerania. From the name of Teuton, it is evident they were followers of Teus and may have been moving away from the incoming Christianity. The Vons of East Prussia, the Von Rundstets and the Von Hindenburge were the descendants of that Teutonic order. They were devoted to the divine idea of a force as the ruling divinity of the world. We have a second episode of the wars of the Gods, as it were, in which the Germans as the followers of Teus, the God of force as the prime mover, were warring against the forces of liberalism and Christianity. But in History this is not all so simple and the picture is not so clear. The Cleavage is not so clear cut. World wide changes do not occur all at the same time.
Beil is the German word for Axe, and Beilage is the word for Enclosure, evidently a "garden of the God" or enclosure of the Axe, just like Securis is the Latin word for Axe and Security is the place of safety, the enclosure is the "cut off" place.
The German God Teus has been identified with the Greek Zeus. Gibbon states the Germans carried their Goddesses along with them in wagons pulled by cows. The goddess, who was veiled, controlled the most ruthless warriors. The isle of Rugen was the reported home of the Gods. Such names as Gotenhafen, God's Heaven, a northerly port, and Gottesbury, evidence the early activities of the Gods.
There is evidence that the Anglo Saxon invasion of England was largely a bloodless affair in which the priesthood transplanted colonies from the Rhine upperland to that of Sussex and its neighborhood. The priesthood of the Axe controlled the colony wherever it went.
As in Rome, force was the prerogative of Zeus, and should one disobey the command of the oracle, death was the penalty.
The Academy was the sacred grove where Plato and others taught, and bore reference to the tree, the oak, the axe.
The earliest Greeks were the Achaeans. Whence they came is not definitely known, yet in 2000 B.C. their very name indicates an association with the priesthood of the Axe. Ithaca when translated signifies a "piece of the oak" or of the axe.
The Ace is the Ak or the Axe and outranks the King. The Ace of Spaces is the pictured Mitre of the God, later worn by the high priest.
Three of the Kings carry swords, while the fourth, the King of Diamonds, carries the Axe.
Two Jacks carry swords, one, the Jack of Hearts, carries an Axe and the fourth, the Jack of Spades carries the sign of Mercury, the Caduceus. The Caduceus was originally two coiled serpents creating a large and small o, symbols of the Sun and Moon, and indicative of the Jackal and the sunworshippers.
The Queens all carry the flower, the fleur de lis, the symbol of the Sun or the lees, the ruling class throughout all ages.
The Roman Fasces consisted of a bundle of Birch rods surrounding the Axe. This instrument, emblematical of power, is pictured on the tail side of our American Dime. The Roman Lictors were the protectors of the State who carried the Fasces up the steps of the Roman capitol.
The Birch rods served notice that the Lictors could administer a licking and the Axe even threatened death as the final penalty.
Strangely the Latin translation of Axe is Securis, from which our word Security is derived, and security in Rome rested within the control of the Axe. Power was the basis of the Fasciste government and the translation of the word Fasces is "the Axe Sign."
The K is the vertical axe while the X is the double K or the double axe.
Onossus and Phaestus were the two ancient cities of Crete that only existed in Myth until their ruins were excavated. Among the many discoveries was the Throne room of Minos the pre-historic God-King and carved in the pavement before his throne was the Double Axe as evidence of the King's power. But far beyond that, it also indicated Minos belonged tot he world wide Axe priesthood.
The connection between Jack and John is shown in the their meanings...John is a "nice" word for Ione or God, while Jack is more or less vulgar, connoting as it does Bacchus the Greek Dionysus and Jackal the Egyptian judge of the dead.
Cleopatra's Needle now stands in New York City near the Metropolitan Museum. In translations of its hieroglyphs the drawing of the Axe is read "God," and three Axes in sequence is read in plural form "Gods."
He [Alexander] was said to have been the fulfillment of the prophecy of Daniel who foretold the destruction of the Persian Empire.
After conquering the so-called world he [Alexander] established himself as an oriental despot which in other words would mean that he desired to be a god. He was learning fast, after the fashion of Solomon or the Prince of Tyre. But his life was short. He died, aged thirty-three, after a drunken orgie.
Alexander proceeded to Egypt and tot eh shrine of Ammon (Amen) and asked the voice of the Oracle if he (Alexander) were indeed the son of god. Ammon is reported to have answered in the affirmative.
Extensive reading in Greek history will convince one of the relation of the Greeks to the Great Race of Els, who lived partly in Crete and Memphis.
"Duke" means leader, "ali" means god. Ducalion identifies himself as belonging to the race of Els, from which sprang the Greeks.
Thus was the Oracle of the Temple protected and in turn the Oracle made peace between states and between princes. It gave advice in time of war. It framed laws. It settled states. The wealth deposited in the temples was enormous.
The Eleusinian Mysteries were related to the gods and to the Oracles. They were renouned for their purity and decorum. They had a good effect on the morality of the people. The Greek law protected the Eleusinian Mysteries. Part of their program was a sort of morality play. Criminals upon proper approbation could be absolved from their crimes. They could be restored to their former places in society. It was not unlike the restoration of the backslider in the present day Christian religion.
Pythagoras, the famous philosopher and mathematician, and the founder of a great secret society, visited the Delphian Oracle and received instructions. Four years of silence was the prerequisite for admittance to the Pythagorean Society.
Oracle literally means the word or the mouth of the El.
To add to the prestige of the Oracle, the advice and the answers given were generally correct; the predictions of the future were generally true. And such a condition requires more than the usual explanation of coincidence.
Historians have stated that the various states of ancient Greece went through the forms of government from Royalty to Tyranny, passing through such stages as oligarchy, aristocracy, timocracy, and democracy. They omit the one supreme control that prevailed throughout Greece during any and all the different forms of government: The Oracle held sway in Greece no matter what the form of government. No great design was enacted, no city founded, no colony planted, no war undertaken, without the advice of the Oracle.
Marcus Aurelius (The El of Thor) once rebuked the Roman Senate for failing to consult the Sibylline Books of Rome. This was after the time of Christ.
That there was in progress a great colonizing movement by the gods is evidenced by the names of the countries of Europe. Each European country has an El derivitive name. This deserves more research. We shall enumerate some of them: Belgium, Alle-mania, Angel-land, Gaul or Gael, Kel or Caledonia, Val or Vals and its reverse Slave, possibly from the Runic language; Italy from the word Atlas; Palestine from the word Pales the god of pasture lands; Illyria, Wallencia, and so forth.
No matter the clan, no matter the religion, the god could superimpose himself and use their beliefs to his advantage.
Another great secret of the gods was death. The gods were supposed to live eternally. If it were possible never to show the face it was an easy matter never to let the people see the deceased body of a god. The wealth of legend about the immortality of the gods and the islands of the blest can only be unravelled by accepting this interpretation of the selfish secrecy of the gods.
It may have been purely accidental that writing ever came into the hands of the people. Cadmus a Phoenician god settled at Thebes in Greece and brought writing with him. This according to legend is the beginning of writing. The writing of the Pharaohs and the gods of Babylon was not in the hands of the people.
Were it necessary for a god to appear before the public his face was hidden or veiled...Such secretiveness added tot he prestige of the god or goddess, and also to the awe and respect if not the reverence of the public.
But before the time of cities the sack of the harries were filled daily by the toiling peasants. Daily sacrifice was made on the high hill, either of free will or of coercion. Were objections or omissions made, the offender would suffer either at the hand of his fellowmen or from the instrument of the Els.
As today, it is very difficult for an ordinary citizen to gain a conference with any man of national importance, so in prehistoric days the gods never came in contact with the people except through the offices of a number two man, an Ari, such as Moses or Aaron.
Rome was divided into two classes: the patricians or those who could identify their father (patri) and the plebs or bastards who could not. The Patricians were of the Illi blood as they always paid much attention to their genealogies. The plebs (a backward spelling of the word people) were a mixed lot carrying some of the Illi blood and a lot of the aboriginal. The institution of marriage threw the line of inheritance tot he male where it has been ever since.
As the Els instituted family life they also instituted Marriage or "the taking of a Mary." Before the coming of the Famous Illi the savages ran in tribes and were polygamous, the strongest man generally succeeding, but the blood and lineage coming from a holy mother, who was the queen of the tribe.
The word Caesar means a Herr of the Cassites who in turn were probably the greatest and most powerful tribe of the Els. Upon a high peak of the Cassian Mountains is a sacred shrine dedicated to the Cassian Jupiter. Cassius the assassin of Caesar bore the same name.
As the Herrs became more numerous, work was more diversified. The boss of the meat shop was the Butch herr; of the baking, the Bake herr, and of the banking, the Bank herr; and so on until it became the common ending for any word of action. The place of action was the “ary”. Thus the brewer brewed in the brewery.
Ireland itself is named after the Ari and called Erin or Ireland.
Ari took on the meaning of "first." Aristocrats were the first of the land. Many Greeks had the word incorporated in their name. Aristotle and Aristophanes are examples.
The Aries were at first the plowmen: Agriculture is Ariculture. It was first introduced in each country from Mexico to China by the gods.
There is another word of vast importance in the scheme of things throughout the world in prehistoric times. This is the word Ari, the name of the number two men, who ranked below the gods, yet above the people.
The Greeks were no longer consulting the Oracle, the word of god. The Sophists were maintaining that there were no gods, that the gods were a myth. In fact, the remote control method of the gods made them seem mythical.
Rome was virtually founded after the fall of Troy and many gods may have migrated there. There was a dark age about 1000 B.C., just like the one after Charlemagne about 1000 A.D.
Jeal left also. He went back to Mount Hor and his home on the mountain. Here is where Elijah (God is Jehovah) went to consult him [Jehovah]. Elijah was one of the faithful. Here it was in the Bible, that Jehovah was raised to the eminence of divine rule of the universe. Here it was that the glorification of Jehovah began. But Jeal was never active again...Indeed the El line was finding better lands to plunder in Rome.
But when the god had found a successful line in the persons of David and Solomon, wealth poured into Jerusalem.
Shortly before, Troy had fallen. Illium was the favored city of the gods. When a successful king favorable to the gods ruled in Jerusalem the wealth of the fleeing gods flowed into that city. Word went out, Jerusalem was safe, wealth flowed in, ships brought gold.
But Jeal and Solomon parted ways and the wealth went away as fast as it came.
Apparently Jeal or Jehovah never compromised very much with Beal. Beal and Jeal were constantly at war. When things went wrong Jeal had an alibi - - Israel had disobeyed. Jeal constantly reminded the Israelites that he led them from Egypt. In fact, the personality of Jeal then was about that of the average politician of today who is constantly reminding the desired voter of an unfulfilled obligation.
At Jerico and other towns the women and children all were utterly massacred and all the houses were burned and only the gold and silver brought to the Lord [Jehovah]. To what benefit was gold and silver to the Lord if not to trade?
He [Jehovah] directed the Children of Israel to build the tabernacle which was his traveling tent. In the tabernacle there was a dividing veil behind which he stood and gave his directions. The best of all the food, the gold, the women captives were brought to the tabernacle for the lord. The veil and the concealed face served to provide a substitute and also prohibit recognition of the god when seen in the open. Thus one god apparently led the Children of Israel for four hundred years.
That Jehovah was a man; that Moses and Israel thought of him as nothing else but a living man is evidenced in many places. Jehovah agreed to show his feet, his hands, his back, in fact, his whole person except his face...All this and many passages too numerous to quote show that the person of Jehovah was concealed from the people, that Jehovah lived on Sinai and did not want any people to visit there.
Jehovah told Moses that he had a somewhat different name from the god of Abraham for he was not known to Abraham by the name Jehovah.
Between these two locations, Byblos, Cyprus, Tyre, and Phoenicia on the one hand, and Egypt, the Nile and Memphis on the other, there came into play the maneuvers of another strain of gods. Jehovah states that "Jeal" is his name, and Je means lord and el means god. Jehovah Elohim is his name and there are two original manuscripts of Genesis, in the one the word god is Elohim (Elohistic) and in the other the word for god is Jehovah (Jehovistic).
Osiris was the Eldest son of Saturn, a famous world god, from whom we get the word Saturday.
Horus and Osiris were the white men of the El line. As Horus brought in the horse, so Osiris brought in the bull, Apis. There was the cult of Osir and there was the cult of Apis; and later they were joined into the cult of Osir-apis or Serapis from whence sprang the word Seraphim the name of the Angels that guarded the gates of Nineva...
Bel or Baal or Beal was the supreme deity. It is a name common in many countries throughout the world. Belgium, Baltic, Belfast, and Baltimore are northern words derived from Baal.
The story of Venus and Adonis as told by Shakespeare is but a poetical sublimation of the orgies held upon Cyprus and even at Byblos on the mainland.
Today Japan makes no excuse for telling the world that her Emperor is a god. His ancestry is traced back one hundred twenty five generations to that of the gods. A group of early navigators passed into Japan the same as elsewhere. They were the Harries...Should the Europeans have kept their genealogies as well as the Japanese did, they also might claim descent from the gods.
Sargon, Osiris, Jehovah, Jupiter, Deuce, Thor and Quezalcoatl were all "El" gods. The derivities of the name "Illi" can hardly be counted.
The Elohim were the gods of the Bible and of Babylon (the gate of the gods).
The first god, before whom there was nothing of any consequence in Egypt, was Osiris. Osiris came from the Nile Delta, or in other words the Sea. His name means "Lord." And today the word "Sir" as addressed in letters means the same thing. Osiris was white as was all early Pharaohs. Typhon, his brother was red haired.
Teocalli is the Mexican word for pyramid. It means the house of god. Teo compares with our Theo for god...
Sinai was the home of Jeal or Jehovah (for Jehovah said "Jealous is my name").
Olympus was the home of Zeus...
...Capotiline hill was the home of Jupiter.
Ireland comes into history as a full fledged kingdom, and its origin has baffled many an historian. Ireland having never known the tread of the Roman soldier, was far along in 500 B.C., as far as Europe was in 1500 A.D.
What is termed Phoenician influence in Ireland would fill a separate volume--the exception that we take is that it might be Irish influence in Phoenicia. There are ten times as many exhibits of fine workmanship belonging to the Bronze Age found in Ireland as in either Italy or Phoenicia.
Bel or Baal or Beal was their [Phoenicians] chief secondary God. Baal appears universally as a god.
Phoenicia was in reality a small group of gods that ruled a Semitic people. These gods according to inscriptions styled themselves the Royal race.
The greatest Phoenician god was Oel (identified by some as Kronus) and the commonest Scandanavian name is Ole Oleson or Ole the son of Ole. What might be termed Phoenician influence is quite apparent in Northern Europe.
Today , the Germans are on the brink of falling in with the idea that they are the original race of the gods. As a matter of fact the barbaric Germans were just as docile as any other wild race under the dominion of the "Els."
The legend of Prometheus is simply the story of a disagreement among the gods as to how much knowledge could and would be passed on to the people on the mainland.
Hesiod, a contemporary of Homer, passes a remark that "There are thirty thousand gods that rule the world." He also said that "The gods keep mankind ignorant of the ways of living, else one would do enough in a day to last for a year." And that indeed was the way of the universal hierarchy that ruled the world through the priesthood. The priests of Mexico, the Druid priests of Ireland, the priests of Egypt, each and all took such advantage of the ignorance and the superstition of the savage people that they were able to rule the multitude to such a degree that in Mexico twenty thousand victims stood in line at one time ready for the sacrifice and not one remonstrated.
It would appear from all this that Euemerus (the Greek who taught that the gods were deified men) was right.
Illi is shortened to "el" or "Al," "la" or "le."
While there may be some difficulty in classification it is possible to show that all the gods of all the nations and languages bore the same surname, the name of Illi. The vowel before and after is of little consequence, for such early languages as the Phoenician, the Hebrew, the Greek, or the Egyptian, generally omitted the vowels.
Atla means the first "la," Itla or Italy is the same word, for Saturn or Chronos spent part of his time in Italy and there could be scarcely any other origin for the name.
Helios is the Greek word L-O-S but the word Soloman S-O-L is the word for sun. And Sol is now our nickname for the sun.
The Sibylline books promised Rome rulership of the world. It was not a prophecy but more a bit of sequence. Troy had ruled a thousand years before, and much the same story could be told about Dardanus, the Dardanelles, and Illium; or, about two thousand years before, about Babylon and the Els that settled there on the banks of the Euphrates. Again another story of the Illi could be told on a later day about London and the Thames or Paris and the Loire. It is an ever repeating story of the high Illi and the masses or the Plebs. Dark intervals of time such as the Hellenic dark ages, the Christian Dark Ages, do not interrupt the continuity of the blood. When the Roman legions withdrew from Europe the local kings were there to begin their feuds.
The Illi were the only ones who could write and their lettering was called the "sigilli" or the signature of the Illi. Stamped upon a paper it was a seal. They passed news swiftly by means of signelle or signals. They legislated, legally, lawfully for they were the Les as well as the Els.
The Illi were the originators of the institution of marriage. Parents, children, kinfolk, servants, made up the household and were termed the family or the famous Illi.
Beal time was bell time and the word bell is derived from the name of the god Bell, famous in Ireland, Phoenicia, Central America, and Babylon. Baltimore means the big house of the god Beal.
Considerable complications set in as the Elite Nobility moved into the high places. Those who were against them were termed exiles, and those who were for them were called allies. Walls or murailles were built for protection and those outside were beyond the pale, for the wall often was also picketed with a fence. War was termed bataille the bats of the Illi. Large implements of war were termed the artillary of the art of the Illi. Large observation towers were built, as in Ireland, Bell towers called Campanille or the bell of the Illi, summoned all within hearing tot he vassalage of the Illi.
The original home of the Illi was the islands or the land of the Illi...Up the rivers they went for trade, and later to settle in the high places, whence we get the word hill. Thus there were two homes for the Illi, the islands and the hills.
For some unknown reason there exists within the midst of our languages a very significant word, the meaning of which has been lost for many generations. And like the prospector who unknowingly tramples over valuable ore, we have used this word over and over without realize the scope and depth of its meaning. This is the word Illi or Illium, the name of Troy, and the name of one of the oldest epics in the world. From it is derived the word civilization for the Illi were the city builders and the Illi who lived in cities were the civilli. The word capitol originally means the head Illi from the chief hill in Rome which was originally possessed by the Illi.
Cities may burn, floods may destroy, pestilences may kill, and wars may ravage, yet a word may survive: the decrees of judges, edicts of emperiors, bulls of popes, may not be sufficient to remove a word from the speech of a people. So long as people live in houses there will be the word for house: should all at one time forsake the houses and dwell in caves, the word house might possibly cease to exist.
