Evil is when you use standards to justify your own actions as moral and then when those standards are applied to your own actions, suddenly everything reverses. Because then you can't claim an insanity defense. [...] Enacted and violent moral hypocrisy is to me how you know whether there's evil going on.

When the terms masculine and feminine were used in philosophic symbolism the ancients gave a certain supremacy to the masculine principle for two reasons: (1) as the male was endowed with greater physical endurance, among primitive peoples physical strength was considered the most necessary attribute of Divinity; (2) as the tribal or state government was a patriarchate, it necessarily followed that God as the Supreme Ruler became dignified as a masculine entity. Those races, however, which elevated woman to a high social status were more prone to endow Deity with distinctive feminine characteristics than were those peoples where woman was regarded as little better than a slave. As time went on man thus became the personification of the positive principle and woman of the negative. This viewpoint, however, will not bear close philosophic scrutiny. The so-called inferiority of the female is simply a symbolic figure, having no reference whatever to either the political or ecclesiastical status of woman. It is surprising, however, the extent to which the stigma of this little-understood symbolism has influenced both the racial and individual life of woman. It is still not uncommon to meet people who, while they can give no definite explanation for their feelings, are convinced that the feminine organism lacks some peculiar psychical or soul quality which has been reserved exclusively for masculine expression. The popular misconception (presumably promulgated by the Moslems) that heaven was a place accessible to woman as the result of special intercession on the part of her husband, while not publicly taught in Christendom, is nevertheless painfully evident to those able to analyze accurately the mental and emotional reactions of the average man. Woman’s responsibilities as the mother of humanity afford ample evidence to the profound thinker that she is far from being a “negative” creature. The maternal principle was elevated by the Greeks to first place, and the Mater Deorum (Mother of the Gods) was esteemed worthy of universal veneration.

The English language lacks a proper term with which to designate deity. The word God is comparatively meaningless, as it gives no hint of the gender or dignity of Divinity other than merely signifying “good.” Since either a masculine or a feminine term is inappropriate and obviously incomplete, and a neuter term entirely too negative, a word is needed which will express the undivided potencies of both positive and negative in equilibrium.

The custom of depicting God either as male or female is the outgrowth of man’s oldest form of worship: phallicism. Masculine and feminine properties are presumed to be positive and negative respectively. Hence God, being an active or positive agent, was conceived to be masculine; nature, being a passive or negative body, was regarded as feminine in that it received into itself and nurtured to maturity the germinal essences of Divine Life. The proponents of a masculine God declare that in the beginning was activity, the positive cause of existence. On the other hand, the proponents of the pre-eminence of the feminine principle declare that activity first issued from a universal matrix; consequently that which comes forth from the matrix is subordinate to its own origin. To a certain degree the Madonna expresses this concept, for the man child is creation born out of the womb of SPACE – the Holy Mother of Ages.

Among many ancient peoples God was considered as being androgynous, and referred to as the Great Father-Mother. When the Creator was represented by an image, various subtle devices were employed to indicate its hermaphroditic nature. The Iswara of the Hindus is depicted with one side of his body male and the other female. In Greek and Roman statuary frequent examples are found of a masculine divinity wearing female garments and vice versa, or a heavily-bearded god may have his hair arranged in a distinctly feminine coiffure. Again, the structure of the face of such deities as Bacchus and Dionysus often shows a sensitive, feminine countenance disguised by a beard or some article of masculine adornment. In other cases the feminine counterpart of the deity is considered as a separate individuality. For this reason each of the gods was declared to have had his consort or feminine aspect of his own being. Thus Mithras, the Persian Light-Savior, is considered to be masculine, but a certain portion of himself divided from the rest becomes Mithra, a feminine and maternal potency. As previously noted, in India each god has his shakti, or feminine part.

In spite of the repeated emphasis upon our age of enlightenment, the majority of people still continue the age-honored practice of molding God into a likeness of themselves. The reason for this probably lies in the fact that man, possessing a spark of Divinity within himself, feels his kinship with God and believes himself privileged to rush in where angels fear to tread, and give definition to the undefinable. God being, as Ingersoll so well expressed it, “the noblest work of man,” we find in the attributes of the God people worship, a definite key to their own ethical and philosophic status. It is noticeable that people with puerile intelligences and petty concerns conceive God to be localized as a neighborhood sprite who spends most of his time eavesdropping, and who can afford to ignore universal concerns while he heaps maledictions upon some poor, benighted wretch who did not keep his eyes closed during grace! On the other hand, those who have learned to know something of the greater verities of life worship a growing God. This does not presuppose that God is necessarily increasing, but rather that man’ increasing capacity to comprehend ever reveals more of the stupendous nature of Divinity. As a person approaches a physical object, the object apparently increases in size. The same is true of the mind as it approaches the subject of its consideration. Hence, to the philosopher God extends through the infinitude of time, distance, and thought, and to him it is inconceivable that even for a second Deity should descend into a state less dignified than the all-inclusiveness of its intrinsic nature.

The modern religious thinker is no longer inclined to venerate a deity who is simply a highly glorified King George III. In that now vanishing picturesque period of absolute monarchies when fretful and senile princes, arrayed in ridiculous periwigs, ruled by “divine right,” God was invested with all the propensities of the “blood royal,” and the celestial hierarchies were metamorphosed into landed gentry.

God is best defined as the first manifestation of Infinite Existence, the limitation of Limitlessness.

To attempt an analysis of the fabric of even the groundwork of SPACE far exceeds the capacity of any human intellect. Never in the history of philosophy has there been evolved a mind capable of grasping all the multitudinous elements of Being. The world is filled with people who foolishly try to teach or seek to be taught the length, breadth, and thickness of ultimates, when but a moment’s true thinking would demonstrate the fallacy and futility of such effort. Since the groundwork of SPACE – the ultimate abstraction – transcends every faculty and every dimension, it can never be comprehended by a reasoning organism that must necessarily arrive at its conclusions on the basis of faculty and dimension. For the human mind to understand that which is greater than itself is as impossible as for a mere man to swallow the ocean. The effort of the human mind to circumscribe the entirety of manifestation is comparable to a mollusk trying to enclose the sea within its shell. Realizing, therefore, how apropos is the ancient statement that to define Deity is to defile it, we are forced to accept the inevitable conclusion of the ages: namely, that the ultimates of beginning and end are alike unknowable. These conclusions are in harmony with the deductions of both Socrates and Buddha.

When considering the nature of primordial substance, the average school of philosophy postulates an active first Cause; otherwise it is wholly at a loss to explain how creation can be the product of a passive power. Activity is accordingly postulated as a fundamental attribute of Being. To me, however it is inconceivable that the first Cause (or more correctly the Causeless Cause) should be either positive or negative. Rather it seems more fitting to posit a permanent condition which is neither positive in an “active” sense nor negative in a “passive” sense, but which is power in absolute suspension. For lack of a better defining term we might conceive of Eternal Being as an enduring neitherness, partaking of neither the presence nor the absence of any tangible force or condition. The condition of the Absolute can only be suggested by a suspended neitherness of both activity and inertia.

The edifice of the "New World Order" is almost complete. It has been constructed brick by masonic brick down through the centuries. Symbolically speaking, the last layer is already in place and it only remains for the "capstone" to be set. When the time is right the architects of doom will finally haul it into place. Once this towering Atonist pyramid of control is complete the black light of the "All-Seeing Eye" will be cast down upon the world's enslaved men and women marching like sleepwalkers beneath its black shadow. The men and women of the world appear eager to help construct freedom's tombstone, the altar upon which their own hearts will be torn out and offered to the blood-gorged gods.

..the final goal of world revolution is not Socialism or even Communism, it is not a change in the existing economic system, it is not the destruction of civilization in a material sense; the revolution desired by the leaders is a moral and spiritual revolution, an anarchy of ideas by which all standards set up throughout nineteen centuries shall be reversed.

The Da Vinci Code, by Dan Brown. In book and films of this kind, what might be referred to as the "esoteric branch" within Christianity, is depicted as being in conflict with the orthodox or "exoteric brand." The establishment appears to be gradually admitting the existence of the esoteric branch and the media often glamorizes the various secret societies and their members so that the public at large may easily condone their activities and even imagine them to be decent, god-loving, keepers of mysterious secrets and occult powers. We might question what establishment or group would profit from such flagrantly fabricated depictions. And might ask why the public would be given the impression that certain secret societies, such as the Priory of Sion, are great if shadowy benefactors of mankind.

Through a series of clever strategies involving forgery, exposure of forgery, and media hype surrounding the literary creations of their own obscurantist agents (Dan Brown and the authors of the Holy Blood and the Holy Grail) the Order of Zion has successfully convinced many in the world that it was a pseudo society dreamt into existence by duplicitous, fame-hungry, catchpenny, opportunists and charlatans. In Dan Brown's fiction the order is skillfully portrayed as a benign group of high brow adepts harried by ultra conservative fanatics within the Roman Catholic Church. This spurious idea was first broadcast by authors Michael Baigent, Richard Leigh, and Henry Lincoln. In their work Holy Blood and Holy Grail, the grand masters of the Order of Zion were, and are, custodians of secret knowledge that will eventually benefit all mankind. They are invariably inspired revolutionaries, free-thinkers, and humanitarians of scientific and artistic genius, such as Leonardo da Vinci, Victor Hugo, Nicholas Poussin, Isaac Newton, and Charles Nodier. In this way the order was able to popularize the fictive elements that they know lead people away from the truth of their existence. Broadcasting the rumor that the order was virulently anti-Semitic was just another ruse to conceal its close affiliation with the ancient Judites and Cult of Aton. The order, for obvious reasons, does not wish its true identity to be known, nor for its deeds or true agenda to be discovered and publicized. Their agents in the media were directed to borrow from several esoteric traditions in order to concoct the intriguing, semi-believable, controversial, but approved, spin that part aggrandizes, part obscures, the true nature and origin of the order they serve. These media agents of the true Order of Sion are indeed opportunists, but not in the way that their detractors and critics commonly suppose.

In November 1688 (under the sign of Scorpio) the catholic king of England James II (Stuart) was overthrown through a well-organized invasion financed by the moneyed Jews of Amsterdam and led by the Prieure de Sion and the Orange Order. The king was exiled to France and in February of 1689 William of Orange, the Prince of Nassau, was put upon the English throne by means of a coup d’etat, which became known as the Glorious Revolution. Even official historians admit that the people did not participate in this coup.

Juri Lina / <cite>Architects of Deception (quoted by Michael Tsarion)</cite>

The Prieure de Sion initiated, with the aid of the moneychangers (above all the Portuguese rabbi Menasseh ben Israel who lived in the Netherlands, and Antonio Fernandez Moses Carvajal) the insurrection of 1642, led by Oliver Cromwell, which in turn led to the first republic(Commonwealth) in England in 1649.

Researchers into the history and influence of the Order of Sion have established the fact that it instigated what is known as the "Scottish Rite" Freemasonic system prevalent in the United States of America. Agents of the order, such as Chevalier Ramsey and Albert Pike, were very active propagators of the "Scottish Rite" systems and practices, those which for all their mystique are merely vehicles carrying forth a very old and insidious agenda.

Father George and wife Barbara are both descendants of Godfroi de Bouillon who, in 1099, led European noblemen in the successful Crusade to recapture Jerusalem from the Islamic faith and moved into the King’s palace at Temple Mount…Godfroi de Bouillon was the first king of Jerusalem and the Duke of Lower Lorraine, a major region for the Illuminati bloodline...So when George W. Bush, a descendant of the de Bouillon through his mother and father, talked of a “Crusade” against “Islamic” terrorism…this was no slip of the tongue…as was reported.
