Druidic Symbolism in Masonry and Judeo-Christianity
From all these facts it appears that the population of Ireland came from the West, and not from Asia - that it was one of the many waves of population flowing out from the Island of Atlantis - and herein we find the explanation of that problem which has puzzled the Aryan scholars. As Ireland is farther from the Punjab than Persia, Greece, Rome, or Scandinavia, it would follow that the Celtic wave of migration must have been the earliest sent out from the Sanskrit centre; but it is now asserted by Professor Schleicher and others that the Celtic tongue shows that it separated from the Sanskrit original tongue later than the others, and that it is more closely allied to the Latin than any other Aryan tongue. This is entirely inexplicable upon any theory of an Eastern origin of the Indo-European races, but very easily understood if we recognize the Aryan and Celtic migrations as going out about the same time from the Atlantean fountain-head. There are many points confirmatory of this belief. In the first place, the civilization of the Irish dates back to a vast antiquity - Ignatius Donnelly (Atlantis: The Ante-Diluvian Epoch, 1882)
A young Queen Elizabeth with the High Druid during a ceremony. Modern Druidism is nothing more than Atonism. It's a far cry from the original form known in ancient times.
As we have shown throughout the Irish Origins of Civilization, the symbols and traditions we associate with Judaism, Christianity, Templarism, and Masonry, originate in Ireland.
They were first employed by the Druid elders of the West, once known throughout the world as the Arya. The name of Ireland was originally Ari or Arya Land. One of the main connotations of this term was "Western Land." Another connotation was "Land of the Pure or Noble Ones."
Hard as it is for most modern men and women to comprehend, once-upon-a-time the little green island of Ireland was home to the world's original aristocracy. This fact has not been conceded by the vast majority of Celtic scholars who are for the most part in doubt about where the so-called "Celts" originally came from, and unaware that the term "Celt," as promulgated by Greek and Roman mythmongers, is both inaccurate and prejudicial.
The Ten Commandments of the Druids were almost identical with those given by God to Moses - Richard Kelley Hoskins
We began work on The Irish Origins of Civilization in 2005 and published both volumes of the book in November 2007. Our researches into Ireland's role in world history commenced in 1981, after a preliminary study of ancient Irish mythology. As of this date, few of our theories and assertions have been accepted by modern-day writers and researchers. Nor have they been deeply contemplated and correctly tackled by revisionists. Nevertheless, we are now in an age when the ideas we present are likely to be corroborated. Recent archaeological discoveries are helping to radically change everything that has hitherto been accepted about the history of the West. The lies and fallacies that have concealed the facts about our past are daily being compromised.
In our text we assert the following controversial points, which must be deeply considered by every unbiased historian and researcher:
The elements of modern civilizations originated in prediluvian times, long before the official dates given for the advent of sophisticated human artifice. After the destruction of Atlantis and other prehistoric civilizations (approximately 13,500 years ago), surviving cultural elements were transported to Britain and Scandinavia.
The preservers and disseminators of prediluvian knowledge were the priesthood known as the Druids. This word means Servant or Keeper of Truth. However, the Druids were a worldwide priesthood and were not confined to Western Europe. In Egypt they were known as Amenists. The cosmologies and pantheons of India, Egypt, Italy, Greece, and other countries, were not autochthonous. They originated in Britain and Scandinavia. (Norway was once joined to Scotland via a great land bridge.)
Ireland, not Egypt, was the post-diluvian cradle of the elements of civilization. It is from Britain and Scandinavia that these elements spread throughout the world. This fact is widely denied because it inevitably gives rise to speculation about Atlantis, the Age of Catastrophe, and the antiquity of advanced humans. Revelations on these subjects devastate fundamental tenets of modern-day science and religion. The facts about the widespread influence of Irish Druidism is largely unknown because of the wholesale destruction of the Druids and the prolonged and deliberate suppression and mutilation of their social traditions and religious leitmotifs.
There were primordial connections between Britain and Egypt. Long before the first official dynasties, over 4,000 years ago, the Western Arya migrated to the Middle and Far East, establishing new civilizations and enriching existing ones. Their remains have been discovered in Upper Egypt and locations farther East. They were the original architects of the Giza Pyramids and the many sacred temples along the Nile. They brought with them the worship of Amen Ra, Osiris, Horus, and Isis (the Nordic Is) . While in the East the Arya referred to their ancestral Western habitats as "lands of the dead," due to the colossal devastation that occurred there.
The many prehistoric and historic migrations to the British Isles (of Iberians, Celts, Gaels, and so on) were for the most part returns. During the so-called "Age of Catastrophe," titanic cataclysms (following on from those that destroyed Atlantis) displaced the original inhabitants of Britain who were forced to flee to the Continent across land-bridges now lost beneath the waves.
The Druids were Aryans. This word has been deliberately misinterpreted to signify members of a race. However, the term truly refers to a spiritual caste. It is also the true name of Ireland, correctly rendered Ariland or "Land of the Arya." The term can be correctly rendered Eri, signifying the Earth goddess of the ancient Druids. Etymologically, Ari and Eri can be found as roots in terms and names such as area, terra,Tara, Mary, Hera, Benares, Armenia, Aramaic, and aristocracy, etc.
The language of the Arya is now referred to as Aramaic and Hebrew. However, these languages have been fraudulently put before us by duplicitous linguists and other so-called "experts." They are not "Semitic" and were not invented by early Jews or Canaanites. On the contrary, the twenty two letters of the Hebrew alphabet are based on the ancient Irish alphabet. Specifically, the so-called "Hebrew" alphabet was the sacred alphabet of the adepts. It was the non-hieroglyphic "hieratic" script of Egyptian hierophants, the sacerdotal alphabet of the Ibaru who were not the ancestors of modern religious Jews. They were the Judites, Judges, and Wise Ones; the architects of high civilizations eventually brought low by desecrators who appropriated, corrupted, and misrepresented their sacred leitmotifs. According to researcher Tony Bushby, the shapes of the twenty two "Hebrew" letters were based on the serpentine shadows cast by sunlight passing through the now lost crystalline capstone on top of the Great Pyramid of Giza. These "letters" were assigned to the twenty two cards of the Tarot which originated in Ireland, and to the twenty two "paths" on the Kabalistic "Tree of Life." (The concept of the sacred tree was known to Western adepts - British, Nordic, and European - millennia before the rise of Judaism and Christianity.)
Terms and names such as Israel, Israelite, Jew, Judite, Yahud, Jehovah, Adonai, Aton, Amen, Elohim, Christ, Jesus, Messiah, Joshua, Isaac, David, Solomon, Moses, and so on, were originally Druidic or Aryan appellations. Some of these terms were titles denoting senior members of Druidic colleges. These terms were plagiarized and deliberately mistranslated to obscure the facts about the origins of religion.
Judeo-Christianity is an adulterated form of Druidism and Amenism. The vast majority of tenets, doctrines, terms, and symbols of modern religion are the result of deliberate plagiarism. They are based on ancient Aryan theology and astrotheology. The adulterated form of Druidism and Amenism can also be referred to as Atonism.
Atonism is the basis for the monotheistic elements of Judeo-Christian theology. That modern experts foam at the mouth denying this fact does not make it less true. The truth is that Christianity was not conceived by egalitarian Jews or Essenes, Mandeans, Stoics, Therapeuts, or Alexandrian Gnostics, as many misinformed researchers and authors believe. Most of these Oriental sects were branches of ancient Atonism. The same can be said of Mithraism and Talmudism. The Jewish Jehovah is none other than Adon or Aton, god of light.
The emperors who codified and established Christianity were members of solar cults that were outer cells of a more secretive Atonist lodge. Senior members of the Claudian, Piso, and Flavian dynasties of Rome worked closely with wealthy and powerful Sadducees and Pharisees to establish the Christian religion. This Atonist quorum feared the rise of other religions with egalitarian tenets and "Druidic" elements. To suppress rivals and galvanize imperial dominion, they funded duplicitous scribes and compilers (such as Paul and Marcion) to create Christianity, basing their "Jesus Christ" on many ancient solar heroes and deities. The sidereal motifs found throughout the scriptures prove this beyond all doubt. Nevertheless, the god of the Bible, Jehovah, was not the god of the Jews, as most academic historians falsely allege. He was the god of solar cult priests and pharaohs who were themselves descended from the Hyksos kings cryptically referred to in the scriptures as "Israelites." (This term derives from Isa, the god of the Western Arya and their descendents, and Amen Ra, god of the ancient Egyptian kings.)
The so-called but misnamed "Jewish" co-conspirators who directed the operations of the Roman Caesars and Emperors, were Atonists. Specifically, they were the leaders of the Order of Melchizedek (or Akhenaton). They were Pharisees and Sadducees of high rank, and keepers of the so-called "Oral Tradition" allegedly delivered to their ancestors at Mount Sinai. This quorum of sorcerers were also known as the Gaonim. The capitalized letter "G" found on Masonic iconography refers to this super secret Luciferian cabal.
The Gaonim have nothing in common with modern religious "Jews." Terms and appellations of this kind do not refer to the kind of sects or beliefs we might first imagine. They refer to a caste of sorcerers descended from the corrupt solar cults (or Luciferians) of antiquity. The members of the British royal family are Judites, even though they belong to the Protestant religion. The Pope and his bishops and cardinals are likewise Judites, even though they belong to the Catholic religion. The word Tudor derives from Juda or Judah, as do the terms judge, tutor, and Teuton. These facts are known to members of Masonic Orders and other Judaic-Atonist enclaves. To them religious affiliations mean little and are merely a form of camouflage which serves to dupe the uninformed masses of the world.
The founder of Atonism was Pharaoh Akhenaton (Amenhotep IV). He appears in Jewish history under the pseudonyms Moses, Zadok, and Melchizedek. He was not an enlightener, as ninety eight percent of the world's writers and historians apparently imagine. On the contrary, Akhenaton was a megalomaniac who ravaged Egypt and violently destroyed its many marvels. He was finally ousted from power and expelled from the country. As researcher Ralph Ellis has shown, the rise of Akhenaton's monotheistic beliefs and warped brand of solar theology coincided with an important astrological phenomenon, namely the precessional transition of the sun out of the house of Taurus into Aries.
Akhenaton's Atonists were members of the Hyksos dynasty of kings and princes; the so-called "Shepherd Kings." However, in our estimation, these controversial kings were of Scythian (or Gaelic) ancestry. In other words, they were from the West. During and after the Age of Catastrophe their ancestors (the pure Arya) fled from Britain to Northern and Eastern Europe, and from there further Eastward toward Syria, Palestine, and India. Although the Scythians of later ages were originally affiliated with the Megalithic Arya, some of their number became spiritually and morally corrupt. Today, a few mainstream historians and archeologists hesitatingly accept that Western "Celts" (as they are erroneously called) had settlements in the Middle and Far East. This is because these migrations were relatively late, historically speaking. They date from approximately 600 years BC onward. Modern academics dare not accept or acknowledge earlier Megalithic migrations from the West to the East. As we said, this idea leads to a plethora of vexatious questions that "experts" habitually and contemptuously ignore.
The modern-day revisionists Ralph Ellis, Moustafa Gadalla, and Ahmed Osman (following on from Comyns Beaumont and other maverick geniuses) conclude that the so-called "Israelites" and "Judites" of the Old Testament were none other than the Hyksos-Atonists first expelled from Egypt at the beginning of the eighteenth dynasty and again during the reign of Akhenaton. On this point we are in full agreement. We further assert that the Hyksos/Atonists were originally Scythians from the West. We also assert that Akhenaton's first wife Nefertiti, her daughter Meritaten, and their descendents, were Scythians.
The exiled Scythian-Hyksos-Atonists, or Israelites, did not disappear from the world and did not spend any time in "Captivity." They were a super-wealthy Pharaonic dynasty with connections throughout the world. After the fall of Akhenaton their descendents eventually migrated to their ancestral homes in the West in order to establish a new empire. From Britain they exercised control over their many lieutenants in Athens, Rome, Tanis, Alexandria, Judea, and elsewhere. The British Empire is the Atonist Empire upon which the sun (Aton) never sets. (The Union Jack is really a symbol of the Union of Jacob.) Its founders and maintainers have unleashed untold mayhem for centuries and have caused unfathomable suffering throughout the world. Our work is dedicated to the exposure of these psychopathic plutocrats and the ruin of their antihuman industry.
The coming of the Atonists was recorded by Irish and Scottish annalists. The records refer to the invaders as Milesians, after their leader King Mil. (He is known to the Scots as Gathelos or Gaythelos, which is probably were we derive the term "Gael," meaning "stranger.") Officially, the Milesians are believed to have crossed over to Ireland from Spain around 600 BC. However, we believe these dates have been deliberately falsified. The Atonist invasion probably occurred nearly one thousand years before the official dates given. The falsification occurred because historians have been directed to date the Gaelic invasion of Ireland, suppression of the Druids, and creation of Christianity, to the period following the rise of Rome (700 BC), and not before. As we said, the ancestors of the Milesians (the Scythians) were originally Irish. They had been displaced to Europe and the Middle East after experiencing the havoc of the Age of Catastrophe.
Eradicating the Druids proved to be a difficult task for the Milesian-Atonists. They eventually called on their agents in Rome and elsewhere to lend a hand. In our opinion, the imperialist activities of Alexander the Great, Julius and Augustus Caesar, and other Greek and Roman tyrants, were mercenary actions funded and directed by high-ranking Atonists ensconced in Britain. This same British-based cabal also financed the establishment of the Christian Church in Byzantium (Constantinople) and finally Rome. Christianity was and is hybridized Druidism. It has usurped the place of the unadulterated school once known and respected throughout the world. Furthermore, Irish Culdean (or Atonist) monks (those in charge of cannibalizing Druidic traditions) became tutors of the Templar nobility of Britain and Europe. The Culdeans, together with their Templar and Cistercian scions, were the "preservers" of cannibalized Druidic traditions. This the secondary reason why pagan elements turn up in Christianity. It is also the reason for the rivalry that eventually erupted between hardline Romish Christians and "Gnostic" types such as the Knights Templar.
Members of the French, German, and Swiss Merovingian dynasty were, and still are, Atonists. Powerful secret societies such as the Priory de Sion, Knights Templar, Freemasons, and Rosicrucians, and so on, are funded and operated by elite royals who were and are either biologically or ideologically related to the Hyksos-Atonist-Judites of antiquity. They are "Luciferians" or "Princes of Light." In times past most of the autocratic Merovingian dukes and princes were tutored by Irish Culdean monks who had appropriated, cannibalized, and perverted the traditions, teachings, and iconography of the Druids. The Culdeans, Cistercians, and Templars were descended from the Atonist-Milesians who, after being expelled from Egypt with Akhenaton, journeyed West to eventually conquer Ireland approximately one thousand years BC.
The modern-day architecture of control and so-called "New World Order" is the brainchild of the Atonist imperialists whose existence we expose throughout our work. The politically active members of present-day royal dynasties, who fund the powerful secret societies, are either biologically or ideologically related to the Atonist pharaohs of old. The majority of the symbols permeating the corporate and religious world denotes this Atonist Cult of Luciferians. Their "New World Order" is a architecture of control designed to replace the "Old World Order" lost to them in ages past. This cult of sorcerers - the Gaonim or Exilarchs (the Princes and Brothers of Light, or of Aton) - exercise control over human beings politically and theologically. The religions they have spawned serve to control man's emotions and pacify his rebellious spirit, while their political orgs offer him a semblance of superiority and power. Tantalized with chimeras of positive social change and technical progress, and blinded by the "light of Aton," man remains psychologically arrested. Consequently, he presents no threat whatsoever to the Establishment figures who habitually treat him as a disposable pawn on their geopolitical board game.
The modern-day architects of control are not scions of some indefinable "mystery religion," as many Christian conspiracy buffs allege. They are initiates of secret fraternities created by the same Black Lodge responsible for the establishment of the Christian Church. Therefore, Christians who seek to expose the workings of secret societies are largely ignorant of vital facts concerning their own allegiances. They are handicapped by not knowing that the very religions to which they belong were established and financed by the same Atonists who fund and direct the secret societies. The Atonists have cunningly divided society in order to pit one faction against another. While the "opposames" witlessly ride their seesaws, the Atonist presence remains indistinct. Nevertheless, the Judaism, Protestantism, Catholicism, Zionism, and Masonry, known today, are all "brands" manufactured by the Atonist "corporation" or Black Lodge. Therefore, only those free from political and religious bias can successfully combat the nefarious intelligence that has preyed over mankind for so many ages.
Servants of Aton
There is some evidence that one of the Flavian emperors may have converted to Judaism even as Constantine later converted to Christianity - Richard A. Gabriel (Jesus the Egyptian)
One day soon, perhaps, the world will finally realize that high civilizations existed prior to the tenth millennia BC, and that the knowledge man has gained in recent ages is but a paltry recapitulation of prediluvian wisdom. Unbiased and open-minded "experts" within the academies of the world may soon agree that the elements of civilization germinated in Western lands, and that there were, in remote ages, relationships between Western and Eastern nations. They may finally acknowledge the facts about the true origins of Judaism and Christianity and hopefully shed light on the sinister Atonist cabal that has long directed the operations of the Western world's religions and governments. We can but hope.
In our work, we assert that Christianity and Judaism as we have come to know them, and as they have been deliberately put before us, are branches of the tree of Atonism. They arose from the ideology of Akhenaton and his Solar Cult priests. Christianity was created by the Princes of Light - the Gaonim - who were either biologically or ideologically related to the Solar Cult pharaohs of the eighteenth dynasty. As we mentioned above, the prime movers in this worldwide conspiracy are descended from ancient Scythians, known in Egypt as the Hyksos or "Shepherd" kings. They and their descendants can correctly be referred to by the following appellations:
Atonists Gaonim Levites Judites Israelites Zadokites (or elite Sadducees) Sons of Zadok Zionists (or Sionists)
We believe that members of Eastern enclaves were not the only men in cahoots with the Atonists. Members of elite families in Western lands, such as Vespasian, Titus, Claudius, Poppaea Constantine, Theodosius, and Justinian, were we believe also seduced by their power. Several members of the Flavian dynasty of Rome, for example, rose to power because of their allegiance with the descendants of Pharaoh Akhenaton. The actions of these men were directed and funded by a powerful Atonist quorum whose existence has been largely unknown until recent times.
Emperor Titus was the son of Emperor Vespasian (7-79AD) of the Flavian dynasty. According to certain records (in the works of Tacitus, Suetonius, and Josephus), Vespasian was associated with elite Jews, such as procurator Tiberius Julius Alexander and Alexandrian priest Basilides. According to a few researchers, Vespasian and his Eastern allies created the religion that would eventually become Christianity. As the arch-conspirators funded the creation of their new religion, they saw to it that rival cults and sects were undermined and exterminated. Vespasian’s successor, his son Titus (79-81 AD), ransacked Judea, slaughtered one million people or more, and had the sacred treasures of the Temple of Jerusalem transported under guard to Rome. We believe the Flavians were merely servants of “Atonist” elites who considered certain powerful sects in Alexandria and Judea a threat to their hegemony. They feared the advent of a “Gnostic” type religion that would incorporate Druidic and Amenist theological elements. Fearing diminution of their power, they directed their Roman and Roman-Jewish lackeys to fund “Paul” and other scribes. These scribes were to plagiarize and cannibalize ancient doctrines so that a new empire-galvanizing religion could be concocted. As we show in the following chapters, the Roman oligarchs worked closely with the shadowy elite Sadducees of Judea to suppress revolt and expand theocratic and imperial power. These groups were directed by the highest-ranking Atonists in Britain - Michael Tsarion (Irish Origins of Civilization, Vol. II)
The Sadducee high priest, appointed by the Romans, was assassinated by the Zealots, and a major terrorist campaign was launched against other Sadducees who had aligned themselves with Rome - Baigent and Leigh (The Messianic Legacy)
There is no room for doubt that the presence of many learned men from Egypt who maintained close contact with the emperors (e.g., Chaeromon of Naucratis or Dionysus of Alexandria…) contributed to the popularity of the Egyptian cults at the Imperial court – Dr. Margarita Tacheva (Eastern Cults in Moesia Inferior and Thracia)
Claudius was also positively disposed toward Egyptian religion, and Nero…had an Egyptian teacher, Chaeromon, who saw to the dissemination of Egyptian knowledge at Rome…Vespasian dedicated a large statue of the Nile to Rome…Together with his son Titus, he spent the night before their triumph over Judea (71 AD) in the temple of the Roman Isis…Titus is probably the anonymous “pharaoh” depicted in front of the Apis bull in the catacombs of Kom el-Shuqafa in Alexandria – Erik Hornung (The Secret Lore of Egypt)
Emperor Vespasian took possession of all Jewish religious artifacts that had previously been safely stored in the Temple, including the precious Torah, and stored them in the Capitoline Jove in Rome. He then proclaimed the entire Jewish territory the Roman Emperor’s persona property. And had his decision officially ratified by the Senate…Josephus recorded that Vespasian personally kept the Torah, revealing that it had at sometime been recovered from Rabbi Jesus Cunobeline and replaced in the Temple…the great Temple of Jerusalem was no longer, and the Jews had been disposed of their land, their treasure and the physical substance of their religion – Tony Bushby (The Bible Fraud)
The Romans...harbored no hostility toward the Jews whom they though more ethical and religiously observant than the Greeks. The Romans knew that Judaism was a religion of great antiquity and respected this. Jews had a reputation as ethical people among the Romans and were granted full religious liberty. Many Romans became "God-fearers," that is practitioners of Judaism observing all precepts except circumcision...There is some evidence that one of the Flavian emperors may have converted to Judaism even as Constantine later converted to Christianity - Richard A. Gabriel (Jesus the Egyptian)
He is brought in chains to Rome, but against tradition, and because of their legal title to the Emperorship, he is greeted and freed of all charges. He and his family live splendidly in Rome, in the Palace of the British, given them by the Emperor - Tony Bushby (The Bible Fraud, on British King Caradoc's treatment after his capture)
As far as we can judge with hindsight, the goal of the strategy was the complete substitution of the ruling class of the Roman Empire with the descendants of the priestly family that had survived the destruction of Jerusalem and the Temple. This was achieved in less that three centuries, by which time all the ancient religions had been eliminated and substituted with Christianity, and the primitive Roman nobility had been virtually annihilated and replaced by members of the family of priestly origin that had accumulated all the power and wealth of the Empire - Flavio Barbiero (The Secret Society of Moses)
The Arch of Titus was erected to commemorate the sacking of Jerusalem by Roman forces in AD 70. The Holy of Holies was violated and the Menorah and Scrolls of the Torah were pillaged and transported to Rome. Emperor Titus ordered the slaughter of over one million people in Judea. To this day, Jews refuse to walk beneath the Arch of Titus in Rome. The relocation of the sacred symbols of Judaism denotes the physical relocation of the Judites or Atonists from the Middle East to Europe. (Here for more)
The supreme head of the Mithraic organization was called the pater partum, or pope, and he resided in Rome in the Vatican grotto - Flavio Barbiero (The Secret Society of Moses)
The pagans “believe that the Christian God is the Sun, because it is a well-known fact that we pray turning toward the rising Sun, and that on the Sun’s day we give ourselves to jubilation" - (Church Father Tertullian, Ad Nationes)
Emperor Constantine and the sun. The Merovingian psychopathic king Clovis was entitled “the light of the sun, already high in its path.”
Cities may burn, floods may destroy, pestilence may kill, and wars may ravage, yet a word may survive – Henry Binkley Stein (Thirty Thousand Gods Before Jehovah)
Although the priests of Aton were monotheistic, Atonism itself was a corrupt version of earlier sacred traditions. The theology of Atonism was built upon the age old foundations of Amenism and Druidism. The facts about the Amenists and Druids have, however, been deliberately obscured by the ideological descendants of the Atonists who have funded and directed so-called "historians" to skew the facts about Egypt and Ireland and distort the meaning of many important terms and titles.
One of the most misunderstood and misapplied titles is "Aryan." Its origins are much more interesting than we might at first imagine. To this day Ireland is known by the Gaelic appellations Eire and Erin. But where do these terms come from? In fact, they refer directly to the primordial goddess Eri or Ari. Therefore, the syllables ari and eri either denote or connote the goddess after whom Ireland was named. In many cases, therefore, wherever word roots such as ari, ara, eri, and so on, are found, they connote or denote either the land of Ireland specifically or, alternatively, the Western hemisphere. They signify the men of the West, their sacred land and beloved goddess.
Goddesses permeated Ireland. Mountain, rivers, valleys, wells, all testified to her presence. Around the eleventh century, Ireland became known predominately as Eire, a name derived from the Goddess Eriu, one of the triple Goddesses: Eriu, Banba, and Fotla...Eriu makes it clear that anyone wishing to enter Ireland would have to revere the goddesses if they wished to prosper and be fruitful – Mary Condren (The Serpent and the Goddess)
As to the original homeland of the Arya, we take the view of researchers Ignatius Donnelly, Anna Wilkes, Conor MacDari, and Comyns Beaumont, who stressed that the ancestral habitat of the Arya lay in the West. Donnelly specified the lost prediluvian continent of Atlantis, and we agree wholeheartedly with his assertion. The lands of the North-West - namely Britain, Scandinavia, Iceland, Greenland, and perhaps even the Arctic climes - are in our opinion remnants of lost Atlantis. There is ample evidence for this contention, even though the facts have long been suppressed by academics who would rather that vexatious questions about man and his true history are never sufficiently answered.
...the Aryans were autochthonous neither in Europe nor in Central Asia, but had their original home somewhere near the North Pole in the Paleolithic times, and that, they migrated from this place southwards in Asia and Europe, not by any “irresistible impulse,” but by unwelcome changes in the climatic conditions of their original home. The Avesta preserves traditions which fully support this view. But these have been treated as valueless by scholars, who worked up their theories at a time when man was regarded as post-glacial, and the Avestic traditions were, it was believed, not supported by any Vedic authority. But with the time-telescope of a wider range supplied to us by recent scientific discoveries it has become possible to demonstrate that the Avestic traditions represent a real historical fact and that they are fully supported by the testimony of the Vedas - L. B. G. Tilak (The Artic Home in the Vedas)
The North Pole is already considered by several eminent scientific men as the most likely place where plant and animal life first originated; and I believe it can be satisfactorily shown that there is enough positive evidence in the most ancient books of the Aryan race, the Vedas and the Avesta, to prove that the oldest home of the Aryan people was somewhere in regions round about the North Pole - ibid
...the strongly substantiated proof of the frequent travelling of Sagas from people to people, and their taking root among many different groups, shows that the majority of basic myths have a fixed point of radiation—their place of creation. Thus, in their outward form, they are only comprehensible on the basis of a completely distinct point of origin - Alfred Rosenberg (Myth of the Twentieth Century)
The solar myth, with all its ramifications, did not arise spontaneously as a stage of general development, but was born where the appearance of the sun must have been a cosmic event of profoundest significance, that is, in the far north. Only there would the year be sharply divided into two halves, and only there would the sun represent a certainty in man’s innermost being of the life renewing, primal creative substance of the world. And so today the long derived hypotheses becomes a probability, namely that from a northern centre of creation which, without postulating an actual submerged Atlantic continent, we may call Atlantis, swarms of warriors once fanned out in obedience to the ever renewed and incarnate Nordic longing for distance to conquer and space to shape. These currents of Atlantic men moved by water in their swan and dragon ships into the Mediterranean - ibid
Druid colleges existed in many regions due to the guardian role of the Celtic race all across Europa. Druids, or Hibernian Gnostics as they might be called, were known to be fluent in several languages - John Lamb Lash (Not in His Image)
The high priests of Ireland - the original Arya or Aryans - are commonly known as "Druids." In Volume One we analyzed this word and discussed the beliefs and relevance of this ancient priesthood. We showed just how many insidious falsehoods have been deliberately disseminated about their origin and beliefs. Fortunately, the truth about this mysterious pre-Celtic priesthood is slowly coming to light:
The true Celts were a tall, fair race, warlike and masterful...who spread their dominion both by conquest and by peaceful infiltration over Mid-Europe, Gaul, Spain, and the British Isles. They did not exterminate the original prehistoric inhabitants of these regions...but they imposed on them their language, their arts, and their tradition, taking, no doubt, a good deal from them in return, especially in the important matter of religion. Among these races the true Celts formed an aristocratic class - T. W. Rolleston (Myths and Legends of the Celtic Race, 1911)
Although the term Druid is local, their religion was of deep root, and a distant origin. It was of equal antiquity with those of the Persian Magi, the Chaldeans of Assyria, and the Brahmins of Hindustan. It resembled them so closely in its sublime precepts, in its consoling promises, as to leave no doubt that these nations, living so widely apart, were all of the same stock and the same religion-that of Noah, and the children of men before the flood - W. Windwood Reade (Veil of Isis)
For, without the Druids, the Kings may neither do nor consult anything; so that in reality they are the Druids who reign – John Chrysostom (fifth century Christian Bishop of Constantinople)
...it is they who command, and kings on thrones of gold, dwelling in splendid palaces, are but their ministers, and the servants of their thought - Dion Chrysostom (Greek Philosopher, on the Druids)
The Druids are men of penetrating and subtle spirit, and acquired the highest renown by their speculations, which were at once subtle and profound. Both Caesar and Mela plainly intimate that they were conversant with most sublime speculations in geometry and in measuring the magnitude of the earth - Ammianus Marscellus (Historian 350 AD)
...the Druids or Derwydd...were the sublime and intellectual philosophers who directed the machineries of the state and the priesthood, and presided over the dark mysteries of the consecrated groves - W. Windwood Reade (The Veil of Isis)
...follow me to a corner of the world where, at least for many ages religion was preserved in its pristine purity, and whose priests...were received as martyrs in heaven before they had learned to be knaves upon earth. It was an isolated spot unknown to the world in the earlier ages of vice. It is now a kingdom renowned for its power and for its luxuries from hemisphere to hemisphere. It was encircled by the blue waters of the German and Atlantic Seas, and abounded in the choicest gifts of nature. It was called The White Island from those cliffs which still frown so coldly upon Gaul, and The Land of Green Hills from its verdant mountains. Come with me to its shores, and I will show you its priests in their white robes, and its warriors in the blue paint of war, and its virgins with their long and glossy yellow hair. But first I will lead you back into the past, and relate to you why this land was called Albion, and why Britain - ibid
Ages of Catastrophe
At the end of the Pleistocene about 10,000 years ago, there was an extinction event that decimated the large terrestrial mammalian herbivores and carnivores of North America, South America and Australia. In North America alone, more than thirty two genera of mammals became extinct…The cause of this extinction is debatable - R. W. Graham(Evolution of New Ecosystems at the End of the Pleistocene)
The world is unaware of the existence of prediluvian civilizations for the simple reason that they no longer exist. As the majority of myths and legends tell us, the continents that housed them were destroyed in a violent cataclysm. And this premise is now scientifically confirmable. Evidence exists to show that sometime between 10,000 and 13,500 years BC, our planet was wrecked by a natural cataclysm of unimaginable proportions. The devastating catastrophe was recorded by numerous tribes and nations. It is mentioned in the earliest Irish legends. Due to its disruptive geospheric effects, the earth suffered subsequent upheavals. Significant disasters (tsunamis, earthquakes, volcanoes) shook the world at 8,000, 6,000, and 3,000 years BC. The Mycenaean Drought, the eruption of Thera in the Aegean, the Storegga Tsunami of Scandinavia, the rise of aridity throughout the Sahara region of North Africa, the rise of the waters of the Mediterranean, the dwindling of the vast Saraswati River in the Indus Valley in Pakistan, and the prolonged Bronze Age famine of Britain, are just a few of the super-catastrophes known to have occurred at different periods after the original global "Age of Catastrophe" mentioned in the records of antiquity. Legends from all over the world, which tell of the fall of the prehistoric continents Atlantis and Lemuria, record a real and exceptionally traumatizing episode in humankind's history. We dealt with the great catastrophe and the subsequent trauma to human consciousness in our book entitled Atlantis, Alien Visitation and Genetic Manipulation.
The Flood, to the world generally a vague and nebulous tradition, really conceals the most appalling visitation and its ravages in the British Isles and Scandinavian lands may be retraced to more considerable extent by the effects of what geologists term the “Drift” Age. It was no mere ice drift. It was sudden and terribly swift and violent - Comyns Beaumont
Old World Disorder
Concerning the Sphinx...Another inscription shows that it was consecrated to the god Ra Atum, or the "Sun in the West," thereby connecting it with the "lands toward the setting sun," with "the place of the dead," and with the country of their ancestors' origin - Edward F. Malkowski (Before the Pharaohs)
In The Irish Origins of Civilization, we covered the aftermath of global cataclysm and showed that nature's fury was particularly devastating to Britain and Scandinavia. These land were so smitten that they were through following ages referred to as "lands of the dead." So horrific was the onslaught, that the Western elders were, along with the aboriginal inhabitants of Britain and Scandinavia, forced to vacate their homelands for new habitations and territories in Europe and Asia. Wherever the elders traveled they were received as veritable gods. They, and their people, have been referred to by most historians as "Celts." They are, however, properly distinguished by the following more accurate titles:
The Gaels, Iberians, and Scythians, were descendants of these illustrious Megalithic ancestors. The primordial elders, the Druids, were members of the world's forgotten Stellar, Solar, and Lunar Cults. (For more information on these cults we refer to Astro-Theology and Sidereal Mythology.)There was not a savant of antiquity who did not know of the existence and significance of the ancient Western elders:
...a caste incorporating all the learned professions. The caste not only consisted of those who had a religious function but also comprised philosophers, judges, teachers, historians, poets, musicians, physicians, astronomers, prophets and political advisers or counselors – Peter Berresford Ellis (The Druids)
The elder race excelled in sciences such as geometry, astronomy, and navigation, and also in metasciences such as astrology and geomancy. In European and Asian history the original Megalithic elders appear as the following:
Shemsu Hor (Disciples of Horus) Phoenicians (Arcadians) Sumerians (Sum Ari) Chaldeans (The Magi) Cabiri (or Kab Ari) Amenists
As we explain in the introduction of Volume One, we do not regard the term "Celtic" as an accurate description either of the Megalithic Irish or of their European descendants. Recent scientific research strongly supports our contention that the term was merely the concoction of propagandists and mythmongers. As one perceptive commentator said, the Irish were Celticized. We find ourselves in complete agreement with this statement and cannot forget that the inaccurate "history" of the early Irish was concocted by their destroyers and colonizers:
What makes it difficult, however, to measure the extent of this influence, as well as the mythico-religious significance of the monuments themselves, is the fact that the liturgy and mythology which constituted their frame of reference are almost wholly missing. The druids did not commit their teaching to writing, and consequently the whole of their sacred literature perished with the eventual extinction of their language – Otto Hermann (The Celts)
After Christians had spent years destroying books and libraries, St. John Chrysostom, the pre-eminent Greek Father of the Church, proudly declared, “Every trace of the old philosophy and literature of the ancient world has vanished from the face of the earth” – Helen Ellerbe (The Dark Side of Christian History)
The two invasions of Ireland by King Henry were bloody and ruthless culminating in the complete and utter dismantling of Tara to bare Earth and the final destruction of almost all remaining non-Christian Irish texts -
None of the Celtic source literature is by druids...In Ireland, the amount of poetic/druidic material in manuscripts...is substantial...the bulk of the source material is unpublished, and still untranslated – R. J. Stewart (Celtic Bards, Celtic Druids)
The earliest Christian missionaries found the native religion extinct, and themselves took the name of Culdees from inhabiting the Druids' empty cells – Prof Todd (Quoted in Bonwick's Irish Druids And Old Irish Religions)
Evidence from the Heavens
Col. Vallencey has proved, as clear as the sun at noon, that the ancient gods of the Greeks and Romans came from the Hyperboreans – Godfrey Higgins
Proof that a supremely educated elder race of adepts lived for extended periods of time in Northern Europe and Asia is made evident from a study of astronomy. Astronomically, certain cycles of luminaries, planets, stars, and constellations may only be observed and noted from specific locations on earth. These various sidereal cycles are of such immense duration that they simply cannot be reckoned by any tribe or nation not geographically stable for an extended period. In short, the exceptional class of men responsible for precise astronomical calculations, and resident at the requisite geographical location, were the Megalithic Irish and Nordic elders displaced to Europe and Asia from shattered Western habitats. They were the Hyperboreans or Atlanteans, and it was they and their descendants who were the world's first master astronomers, astrologers, geomancers, and cyclopean monument designers.
They profess to have great knowledge of the motions of the heavens and the stars - Pomponius Mela (on the Druids)
As scholar Godfrey Higgins explained:
In his treatise on the origin of the sciences in Asia, that most excellent man and great astronomer Baillie has undertaken to prove that a nation possessed of profound wisdom of elevated genius and of an antiquity far superior even to the Egyptians or Indians, immediately after the flood, inhabited the country to the north of India between the latitudes 40 and 50 degrees - (Anacalypsis)
The megalithic yard is much older...and was certainly in use in Britain as early as 3500 BC, at which time the Minoan civilization was still a full thousand years short of its ultimate emergence. Since there is little or no evidence of the existence of the megalithic system within central or southern Europe, the inference must surely be that the Minoan civilization ultimately responded to ideas that had originated further West - Alan Butler and Stephen Dafoe (The Knights Templar Revealed)
Several thousand years ago, a highly civilized and cultured people lived happily and abundantly in a paradise near the northern polar regions. All the major religions on earth, of whatever nationality, state emphatically that they were the original five races of mankind. In Judaism and Christianity, we call this paradise Eden. The Hindus call it Uttara Kuru. The Tibetan Buddhists call it Khedar Khand (Country of God Shiva) and Shambala. It was also called Sivariya or Sibirya (Land of God Shiva), now called Siberia. The ancient Greek historians and myths referred to it as Hyperborea. The Chinese Taoists don’t call it by a specific name, but they do describe it as a type of paradise where men lived in complete harmony with Nature - Gene D. Matlock (What Strange Mystery Unites the Turkish Nations, India, Catholicism, and Mexico?)
The Migration of Words
In Irish the word for "saint" (niamh) is akin to the word "heavens" (neamh) - Patrick McCafferty and Mike Ballie (Celtic Gods)
In Appendix XVII we deal with the subject of etymology and briefly examine the theory concerning a parent or root language. At this point we can simply note that a lot of evidence for the eastward spread of the Arya, and of later Scythians, can be found from a study of words and place names. The author T. W. Rolleston provides us with many examples demonstrating cultural dispersion:
The word dunum, so often traceable in Gaelic place names in the present day (Dundalk, Dunrobin, etc,) and meaning fortress or castle, is another typically Celtic element in European place-names. It occurred very frequently in France - e.g., Lug-dunum (Lyons), Viro-dunum (Verdun). It is also found in Switzerland - e.g., Minno-dunum (Moudon)Eburo-dunum (Yverdon) - and in the Netherlands, where the famous city of Leyden goes back to a Celtic Lug-dunum. In Great Britain the Celtic term was often changed by simple translation into castra; thus Camulo-dunum became Colchester, Bran-dunum Brancaster. In Spain and Portugal eight names terminating in dunum are mentioned by classical writers. In Germany the modern names Kempton, Karnberg, Liegnitz, go back respectively to the Celtic forms Cambo-dunum, Carro-aunum, Lugi-dunum, and we find a Singi-dunum, now Belgrade, in Servia, a Novi-dunum, now Isaktscha, in Roumania, a Carro-dunum in South Russia, near the Dniester, and another in Croatia, now Pitsmeza. Sego-dunum, now Rodez, in France, turns up also in Bavaria (Wurzburg), and in England (Sege-dunum, now Wallsend, in Northumberland), and the first term, sego, is traceable in Segorbe (Sego-briga), in Spain. Briga is a Celtic word, the origin of the German burg, and equivalent in meaning to dunum...One more example: the word magos, a plain, which is very frequent as an element of Irish place-names, is found abundantly in France, and outside of France, in countries no longer Celtic, it appears in Switzerland (Uro-magus, now Promasens), in the Rhineland (Broco-magus, Brumath), in the Netherlands, as already noted (Nimègue), in Lombardy several times, and in Austria - (Myths and Legends of the Celtic Race, 1911)

Hyksos, Saxons, Scythians
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 - Henry Binkley Stein (Thirty Thousand Gods Before Jehovah)
As we show in Volume One - in our chapter on the Milesian invasion of Ireland - the ancient records inform us that the Celtic or, more correctly Gaelic Scythians (Sarmatians, Ossetians, Massagetae) of Europe, were closely allied with the Egyptian pharaohs of the Delta region, those same Hyksos Kings. The old Irish annals refer to the descendants of the Scythians who had lived in Egypt, as "Milesians." This was a name taken from their great chieftain Mile (Scottish Gathelos).
Death mask of a Scythian queen. Note her handsome Caucasian features.
The vast majority of British historians prefer to deal with the Milesians long after their vacation from Egypt. They concentrate on the Milesian conquest of Spain and avoid dealing with the historical anecdotes that speak of their time in Egypt.
However, when the dots are connected, a fascinating story comes to light, not only concerning the connections between ancient lands and peoples, but concerning the origins the world's premier secret societies and their so-called "New World Order."
In our opinion, the so-called Scythians of Europe were the people that Egyptologists refer to as the "Hyksos" kings of Egypt. These Hyksos have recently been related to the Israelites of the Bible. If our Scythian-Hyksos connection is correct, then we have, from the annals, strong confirmation of the West to East transit of the elements of civilization. Furthermore, we can offer a more logical explanation for the word "Saxon," and for why some researchers believe Saxons and Israelites to have been one and the same group. Some investigators believe the word Saxon to be a derivation of Saca (or Saka, Sakai, or Saga) denoting "Scythian."
Allegedly this word gives us the name Isaac or, more properly, Ish Sac, meaning "Man of the Saca." According to the Bible Isaac was the son of Abraham who was, along with his wife Sarah, the first "Israelite" to enter the land of Egypt. The name Isaac indicates that Abraham and his descendants were Scythians. We think this likely, although we are cautious when consulting official accounts concerning this prophet and his spurious emigration.
The Sakai were among the most distinguished people of Scythia, who settled in Armenia, and were called Sacae-Sani - Pliny the Elder (Roman Historian)
The Saxons were descended from the ancient Sacae of Asia - Albinus (Tutor of Charlemagne)
In any case the etymology suggests that the Scythians were indeed the Hyksos People. Therefore, it follows that the Scythians were the Biblical Israelites. Additionally, the etymology suggests that the so-called "Anglo-Saxons" were descendants of the Scythian-Hyksos-Israelites.
We see no reason to doubt that Gaelic Scythians traveled to Egypt as the ancient Irish records state. Their city near Galilee, called Scythopolis, has been excavated by archaeologists. And we can be sure that other settlements existed in the region, as well as in the Nile Delta area. Therefore, since the Scythians and so-called "Israelites" (the Hyksos of Egypt) were so intimately connected, it is quite correct to refer to Saxons of the Western lands as "Israelites," although not for the reasons given by orthodox Jews, Christians, and British-Israelites who generally believe the Israelites to have been a ragged but god-inspired underclass cruelly oppressed by despotic Egyptian slave masters. That supposition is unsupported by the facts, and has now been openly refuted by leading Jewish historians. It was an unsustainable concoction from start to finish:
As Martin Bernal in Black Athena noted, ever since late Antiquity, writers have seen links between the Egyptian records of the expulsion of the Hyksos from Egypt, the biblical tradition of the Exodus, and the Greek legends of the arrival of Cadmus and Danaus. Heccataeus of Abdera, a Greek historian of the fourth century BC...set out his view that the traditions of the Egyptian expulsion of the Hyksos, the Israelite Exodus and that of Danaus' landing in Arcadia, were three parallel versions of the same story - David Livingstone (The Dying God)
The Scythian settlement of Scythopolis, a stone-throw from Jerusalem. Place names, such as Galilee, Golan, Samaria, Jordan, Sumeria, Saqqara, Sahara, Gadara, Arabia, Armenia, Iran, Syria, Mallewi, Amarna, Tyre, and Tarim, etc, betray Irish roots and the presence of the Scythians and earlier Arya - the men of the West. Another name for the Scythians was Ashguza. The syllable ash may refer to the ash tree, and the syllable guza to Goth and to goat.
Personally, we think it likely that the Scythians were connected not only to the Hyksos but also to the Cretans, Mycenaeans, Philistines, and Amorites of Mesopotamia. We also believe that Aryans from the Western hemisphere traveled into Eastern Europe and Asia long before the time of the Scythians. In fact, as we have stated, we believe the Scythians were themselves displaced to Europe from Britain and Scandinavia.
The "Sages" of Europe, the Saca, Saka, or Scythians, were a highly advanced Gaelic or "Celtic" tribe that were once connected to the Western Arya. A group of them were, we believe, allies of the Hyksos Kings of Lower Egypt. After the fall of Akhenaton (1400 BC), the Scythian-Hyksos-Atonists made their way Westward to invade Spain and Ireland. These conquerors (known in Irish mythology as the Milesians), were responsible for the destruction of the Druids. One of their elite members was the Atonist Princess Meritaten. She was the daughter of Akhenaton and Nefertiti,and bore the nickname Scota. This name derives from Scuti or Scut, the name by which the Scythians were originally known. After the Milesian-Atonist invasion, Ireland was given the name Scota. Later, the Irish took their Princess's name to Scotland ("Land of Scota," or "Land of the Scots or Scythians"). The Scythian-Hyksos-Atonists were none other than the "Israelites" and "Judites" of the Old Testament. Click here for more info. A study of their symbolism leaves us in no doubt of this.
...have all deep blue eyes, and bright red hair - Herodotus (on the appearance of the Scythians)
Official history accepts that the Scythians (under the pseudonym "Sarmatians") were used as mercenaries by the Romans during their conquest of Britain. However, this is a half-truth. In fact, it was the Scythian/Sarmatians, or more correctly Atonists, who employed the Roman army as mercenaries. The Scythians had been a power in Eastern Europe and the Middle East long before the rise of Rome in 700 BC. The great patrician families of Rome were under the control of the secretive high-level Atonists from the beginning. Historians in their employ deliberately inverted the true story about the Roman-Scythian connection.
Arya in the East
The Mahabharata reports of the Indian hero, Arjuna, that during his visit to the mountain of Meru, the sun and moon daily passed around from left to right. Such an idea could never have originated in the tropical south, for only in the far north does the sun disc roll along the horizon. A prayer is also addressed to the Indian Adityas: May the long darkness not come over us, and it is complained of bright Agni that he had tarried too much in the long darkness, all of which can only be attributed to the long Hyperborean night - Alfred Rosenberg (Myth of the Twentieth Century, 1930)
Caucasian Mummy found in Cherchen, China.
Whether the Western Goths were related to or descended from proto-Scythians or earlier Aryan migrants, they succeeded in reaching Egypt, India, and China. Recent archaeological evidence shows us that fair-skinned Westerners made homes along the Indus Valley in Pakistan, in the Indian Kush, and in China's Cherchen region and Tarim Basin. Examinations of the hair, clothing and accoutrements of long buried men and women in these far eastern locations clearly identifies them as Nordics from Denmark, Norway, and Sweden.
Physicians in Shanghai who studied the preserved corpse came up with some baffling new information about the blond mummy of China. Whoever she was, she died with high levels of cholesterol in her muscles—and inexplicable traces of the silvery white metalloid element antimony in her lungs - Charles Berlitz (World of the Odd and the Awesome)
When Victor Maire, Professor of Chinese Studies at the University of Pennsylvania, and archaeologist J. P. Mallory returned from China, they told their colleagues of what they had seen: perfectly preserved 4,000 year-old mummies, desiccated by dry desert sands. Tall white women with blonde hair, pigtails and tattoos; tall white men with brown beards; tiny white babies with blue eyes; woven fabrics of tartan and bonnets made of soft dyed wool...What were Caucasians doing in the wastelands of China 4,000 years ago? – Maurice Cotterell (Jesus, King Arthur and the Journey of the Grail)
The Jats (elite Sikhs) of Northern India may be an late offshoot of the Arya. Or they may be the descendants of later Scythian migrants. This much is confirmed by the Sikh historians and Sikh people who have always maintained their that race came to India from the West. Likewise, the Yuezhi of China appear to have a connection to visitors from the West.
Were the "Aryan" warrior Sikhs of Northern India descended from nomadic Scythians or from earlier visitors from the Western hemisphere? Their own history claims this to be the case. Their physique, physiognomy, bearing and general temperament is certainly akin to that of ancient Vikings and Goths, that is, of Nordics. The very name Sikh may derive from Sac or Sakh, denoting the Scythians.
Enough exists 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 - (Priesthood of the Illes)
Together with these primeval Aryan Atlantic memories appear those cult allegories, costumes, carvings which are understandable only in terms of Nordic origin. In predynastic Egypt, we find the Nordic boat with its swan neck and trefoil. But the rowers are the later ruling Amorites, already recognized by Sayce as fair skinned and blue eyed. They once traversed north Africa as strictly homogeneous hunter clans which gradually subdued the entire land. They then migrated somewhat further, across Syria and toward the future site of Babylon. The Berbers, among whom even today one finds light skins and blue eyes, do not go back to the Vandal invasions of the fifth century A.D., but to the prehistoric Atlantic Nordic human wave - Alfred Rosenberg (Myth of the Twentieth Century, 1930)
The Amorites founded Jerusalem, and they formed the Nordic weft in later Galilee, that is, in the pagan region whence Jesus is said to have come. The Amorites were then augmented by the Philistines, who also brought to Syria hitherto unknown Nordic ship designs, with axe and trefoil as the stem symbols - ibid
Suddenly, around 2400 B.C., there appear reliefs of men with fair skin, reddish blond hair and blue eyes, those blond Libyans of whom Pausanias later reports. In the tomb paintings at Thebes, we find four races of Egypt represented: Asiatics, negroids, Libyans, and Egyptians. The last are depicted with reddish pigmentation; the Libyans, on the other hand, are always shown bearded, with blue eyes and white skins. Pure Nordic types are shown on a grave of the Senye dynasty, in the woman on the pylon of Horemheb at Karnak, by the swanboat people on the temple relief at Medinet Habu, and by the Tsakkarai who founded Phoenician sea travel. Light skinned men with golden hair are shown on the tombs at Medinet Gurob. In the most recent excavations in 1927 in the mastabas at the pyramid of Cheops, the Princess and Queen Meres Aneh (2633-2564) were found depicted with blond hair. Queen Nitokris, legendary and surrounded by myths, is likewise always said to have been blond. All these are racial memories of a prehistoric Nordic tradition in north Africa - ibid
I want to advance some reflections on the religiosity of the Indo-Europeans — that is to say, the Indo-European speaking peoples originating from a common Bronze Age nucleus — who have always exerted a significant influence on the government and spirit of predominantly Nordic races. Just as by comparing the structure of the Indian, Persian, Sacaean, Armenian, Slavic and Baltic languages, and of the Greek, Italian, Celtic and Teutonic dialects, we can reach a conclusion as to a common or primal Indo-European language, approximating to the latter part of the early Stone Age, in the same way, an examination of the laws and legal customs of the different peoples of Indo-European language reveals a primal Indo-European feeling for law. Similarly, from a comparison of the religious forms of these peoples we can identify a particular religious attitude emanating from the Indo-European nature — a distinctive behavior of Indo-European men and people towards the divine powers. So it is that certain common religious attitudes, which originally were peculiar to all peoples of Indo-European language, reveal the identity of an Indo-European religiosity. But since in fact all Indo-European nations represented different types moulded on the spiritual pattern of the Nordic race, the origin of these common religious attitudes may be identified in a religiosity which is characteristically Nordic, emanating from the spiritual nature of the Nordic race – Prof. Hans F. K. Gunther (The Religious Attitudes of the Indo-Europeans)
Trade relationships, it seems, had been established between Egypt and Europe during the Early Dynastic Age, and merchants travelled immense distances to bring luxury items to adorn the palaces and tombs of the pharaohs. We have noted too that even before the founding of the First Dynasty, lapis-lazuli from the borders of Pakistan had reached Egypt in considerable quantities. Thus also gold used in the jewelry of Khasekhemwy (Dynasty 2) was found to have originated in the Carpathian Mountains in Romania. Such far-reaching links appear to be out of the question in the early third millennium BC (the date normally given for Khasekhemwy). The arrival in Egypt of gold from north of the Danube speaks of a highly developed system of international trade, some of it apparently conducted by sea. And this impression is further reinforced by the discovery in Early Bronze Age Troy...the city destroyed in the great cataclysm, of artifacts made of tin-bronze. The only sources of tin known to the ancient world were in Europe: Bohemia and the Atlantic west, northern Spain and Britain. It is generally assumed that the first tin to reach the Near East was from Bohemia, yet mineralogist John Dayton has argued persuasively for Britain as the primary source of the material: mainly due to the fact that in Britain, and here alone, tin and copper are found together in the ground, already mixed, in ore-form. For Dayton, the evidence says that true bronze was invented in Britain, and nowhere else, which, if correct, means - Emmet Sweeney (The Genesis of Israel and Egypt)
In our work we maintain that the term Jew did not refer to those using it as a denomination in recent history. It referred to the Arya and to the "Men of the Trees." This is the reason why Judaic (Jewish) terms are found in the Far East. It is not because religious Jews travelled to the far flung corners of the world, but because the Arya had done so. As H. Westropp explains:
The colonization of the Jews in Palestine under Cyrus and his successors appears very like a new occupation, rather than a return. It is evident that there were more of them beyond the Euphrates than ever made their homes in Judea. Their leading class bore the title of Pharisees, perhaps from their Persian affiliations...The patriarchal names are very similar to those of the Brahmin divinities: Brahma and his consort Sara-Iswati, his son Ikshwaka, and great-grandson Yadu. The ruins of the temple of Peace, or Tukht Solumi, have been found in Cashmere, and many names of the Bible and Western Asia, like Yuclia, Dawid, Arabi, Cush, Yavan, are also indigenous to the region of the Indus - (Ancient Symbol Worship)
Sadly, Westropp and many other authors who analyzed the symbolism of the ancient races, believe the "Jews" to be the same people as those known by that sobriquet today. Those who have not bought into the propaganda and who have dug deeper, know that this is simply untrue.
One of the names for eastern Scythians was Getes or Gets, connoting "Goat." The Gets are very likely the same people as the Mesopotamian Guts or Guteans who founded one of the most powerful ancient dynasties in the region. Although the following quoted researcher, like so many others, erroneously imagines the migrations to have be from the eastern to the Western hemisphere, his analysis in other respects is most insightful. It reveals the facts that have been kept from us for centuries by complicit historians who would rather we not know the truth about the origin, nature, and movement of the ancient races of the world:
In a rather bold paragraph in their recent book on The Tarim Mummies, James P. Mallory and Victor H. Mair suggest that there may have been more cohesion among these nomads than was previously believed. They wrote in the following paragraph regarding the Yuezhi nomads near the border of China:
Da (Greater) Yuezhi or in the earlier pronunciation d'ad-ngiwat-tieg, has been seen to equate with the Massagetae who occupied the oases and steppelands of West Central Asia in the time of Herodotus; here Massa renders an Iranian word for "Great," hence "Great Getae." ...Others have seen in this word an attempt to capture in Chinese the name of a tribe that is rendered in Greek as the Iatioi who are recorded in Ptolemy's geography. The original pronunciation has been reconstructed as gwat-ti or got-ti or gut-si, which opens up distant lexical similarities with the Goths (the German tribes of northern and eastern Europe), the Getae (the Dacian, i.e., Balkan, tribes northwest of the Black Sea), the Guti (a people on the borderlands of Mesopotamia), the Kusha (our Kushans), the Gushi (a people mentioned in Han texts and regarded as brigands along with the peoples of Kroran), or a combination of some but not all of the above (Mallory and Mair 2000, 98-99).
...comparison of like-sounding tribal names, although merely a paragraph in length, could potentially generate volumes of discussion and can help us understand more definitively the nature of the barbarian invasions in ancient Rome, the powerful Kushan Empire in India, the possible origins of the Guti people, the Guti kings of Mesopotamia, and the similarity between the Goths, Getae, and the Yuezhi. Moreover, this opens up the possibility that at least some of the people termed "Scythians" were a single tribe -- the Getae. So could there have been a nation of nomads who knew themselves as Gets, Gats, Guts, or Yuts?
This is not the first time that the suggestion has been offered that the Yuezhi could be related to Goths. In his Tableaux Historiques De L'Asia, Julius Von Klaproth (1783-1835) wrote:
The name of Yueti or Yut recalls that of Yuts or Goths, which came to Europe: it would be very possible that the Yutes who arrived in Scandinavia with Odin, are the same people who three centuries before our era, still inhabited the area...northwest of the Chinese Kansu province. This would suppose the emigration of the Goths of Central Asia after that of the other Germanic peoples.
This identification between the Yuezhi and the Goths by Klaproth suggests that the tribes involved in the movement of nomads into Roman territory may have been greater than modern scholarship holds. Could it be that the Goths, along with the Alans, were pushed into Europe under pressure from the Huns? Moreover, could these same tribes be found in the Indian and Persian frontiers? The South Asian Jats are one such group that may lead us in the proper direction, as their settlement corresponds geographically with the Indo-Scythian settlement on the Indian subcontinent. Perhaps by examining the customs and characteristics of this living population we can better understand the role the Getae played in history - Sundeep S. Jhutti (The Getes)
Lhasa in Tibet. The syllable "asa" is a Scandinavian word meaning "gods" or "holy ones" (as in Asar and Aser, etc). Until the seventh century the original name of the city was Rasa, said to mean "place of the Goats," i.e., the Goths.
The evidence revealing the presence of the Arya in Eastern Europe, Egypt, Asia, and the Americas has been suppressed. The powers-that-be do not want the true origins of civilization to be widely known. They have seen to it that questions concerning the West to East migration of the elements of civilization are never broached by academics. Instead of the truth we are forced to ingest irrefutable errors. However, many perceptive researchers, not willing to fall into lockstep with the official consensus on history, have seen through the smokescreens and disinformation. Their discoveries provide us with insight into all that has been hidden from view when it comes to prehistoric migrations and the connections between ancient peoples.
Osiris (Asari, or "God of the Arya") enthroned and in the process of judging the dead soul that passes through the trials of the underworld ("neter world") on its way to Amenta. Osiris holds the flail and sickle (or lituus). These two objects mean many things, but primarily symbolize the earth and royalty. They are also associated with the Western Druids. The majority of images of the pharaohs depict what appears to be a shepherd's crook. However, in this image from the Book of the Dead we clearly see the sacred sickle identical to that employed ritually by Western Druids. As Osiris was god of the earth, agriculture, and vegetation, it certainly makes more sense to see him holding the sickle, especially when the flail for winnowing is in his other hand.
The crosier, or pastoral staff of the Pope was also used by the Druids, and answers to the lituus of the Roman augurs and the hieralpha of the Hindoos - W. Winwood Reade (The Veil of Isis)
The city of Arish in Egypt. Just one example of many place names (such as Iran) bearing roots that may connote the Arya of the West. The very name Africa may derive from Aparica, meaning "west." (Here for more info.)
The Egyptians themselves claimed that their ancestors were strangers who in very remote times settled on the back of the Nile, bringing with themselves the civilization of their motherland, the art of writing and a polished language. They had come from the direction of the Setting Sun and they were most ancient - Diodorus Siculus (Ancient Greek Historian)
When modern academics composed reference books about early Egyptian history, they scrupulously avoided mention of the impressive body of ancient evidence attesting to the celestial rulers of predynastic Egypt – Tony Bushby (Secret in the Bible)
Classical archaeologists are in agreement that ancient migrations did take place in prehistoric times, although they often tend to be rather hazy about the dates and the countries involved – Ralph Ellis (Jesus: Last of the Pharaohs)
The religion of the ancient peoples seems to have been one throughout the entire world; a great brotherhood, a universal faith. Strange has been the impulse of priests and theologians to deviate from the ancient holiness which was so solemn and majestic in primeval days, and to instruct the masses in false doctrines - E. Valentia Straiton(The Celestial Ship of the North)
The Egyptians were sublime philosophers who had dictated theology to the world. And in Chaldea arose the first astrologers who watched the heavenly bodies with curiosity as well as with awe, and who made divine discoveries, and who called themselves The Interpreters of God – W. Winwood Reade (Veil of Isis: Or Mysteries of the Druids)
...Egypt is highly unusual, in that the early craftsmanship and construction from the Old Kingdom are the finest and the quality and dimensions of each monument reduce from then on throughout the following millennia – Ralph Ellis (Eden in Egypt)
The predynastic Egyptians, that is to say, that stratum of them which was indigenous to North Africa, belonged to a white or light-skinned race with fair hair, who in many particulars resembled the Libyans, who in later historical times lived very near the western bank of the Nile – E. A. W. Budge (Egypt in the Neolithic and Archaic Periods)
Among the ancient crania from the Thebaid in the collection in the Department of Human Anatomy at Oxford, there are specimens which must unhesitatingly be considered to be those of Nordic type – L. H. Dudley Buxton (The Peoples of Asia)
...the famous Egyptologist (Prof. Walter B. Emery), author of “Archaic Egypt”...discovered the remains of individuals who lived in the predynastic epoch. These presented a dolichocephalous skull, larger than that of the local ethnic group, fair hair and a taller, heavier build. Emery declared that this stock wasn’t indigenous to Egypt but had performed an important sacerdotal and governmental role in this country. This race kept its distance from the common people, blending only with the aristocratic classes and the scholar associated them with the Shemsu Hor, the “disciples of Horus”...The Shemsu Hor are recognized as the dominant sacerdotal caste in pre-dynastic Egypt (until approximately 3000 B.C.), being mentioned in the Turin papyrus and the list of the kings of Abydos - Vittorio Di Cesare and Adriano Forgione (Malta: Skulls of the Mother Goddess)
It is singular to find a white race spoken of in the ancient monuments. Dr. Brugsch, the learned German, notices the word Tam-hou or white men. As it occurs on tablets dated 2,500 years before Christ, it is puzzling to indicate the people. Brugsch traces them to Libya. Champollion recognized in the Tamh’ou a type of European ancestry. M. Deveria remarks upon hieroglyphics recording the fact that Horus, the god, leading and guiding a white race. As there are still many Celtic monuments in the north of Africa, over many hundreds of miles, he contends for the existence of an original Celtic people in Egypt, or, in modern language, that the Welsh and Irish were once in Egypt – James Bonwick (Egyptian Belief and Modern Thought, 1878)
Nobody knows just who these blue-eyed, fair-skinned people were, or even where they came from...Anthropologically, they were termed Caucasians…These people, Elliot Smith concluded, were more than intelligent enough to accomplish the amazing building feats that the modern world marvels at on the banks of the Nile – Gerald O’Farrell (The Tutankhamen Deception)
The Druids worshipped deity under the form of the Equinoctial Bull, as did the early Hebrews and Egyptians, and under the form of an erect monolithic stone, the Hermetic pillar or "gilgal," of which so many are found in Palestine to this day - Frank Higgins (Ancient Freemasonry)
As of 2010, the truth begins to shine concerning the Western ancestry of the pharaohs, specifically those of the famous eighteenth dynasty. Tutankhamen's DNA turns out to be of Western origins (Click here for 2010 report). Given the new found facts, the question arises as to what we are to make make of all those aggressively publicized efforts to de-westernize the ancestry of Tutankhamen in order to present him as a negroid pharaoh. What are we to make of the highly profiled theories of United Nations backed charlatan Cheikh Anta Diop and his school who have labored to convince the world that Egyptian civilization was the brainchild of Black African Kings? Note, for example, the scandalous cover of National Geographic magazine with the title "The New Face of King Tut."
Armed with a formidable body of evidence from numerous academic disciplines, Diop presented specific information to prove the Black origins of Kemet (ancient Egypt).It is obvious from the conference report that Diop dominated the proceedings, and confronted with his solid arguments, most of the participants changed their positions during the conference
Now perhaps scholars can make more sense of the golden torcs found in abundance inside the tomb of Tutankhamen; torcs identical in design to those made in Ireland for ancient kings.
While we look with awe at the famous and instantly recognizable golden mask of "Tutankhamen" let us remember that the mask does not, in fact, display the face of Tutankhamen, as most people in the world have been falsely lead to believe. It is the face of his brother, Semenkhkare. As we can see, when it comes to Egyptian history we are in a tangled labyrinth of deception. It is, in our opinion, high time for the truth to come out.

The Arya of Persia
In the Zagros hills and across the plain to the Tigris, there lived a...fair-haired...people akin to the Guti (Goths) who...remained in what was afterwards Assyria - C. Leonard Woolley (Sumerians)
The Ring of Power, with goat-horned hybrid animal. This ring was the supreme symbol of kingship and spiritual authority in ancient Persia (modern Iran). Persia was a land of the Arya. The modern name of the country - Iran - means "Aryan" in the Farsi language. The ring was considered to be the bestowal of the supreme god Ahura Mazda. As the exquisite depictions of Ahura and the Persian kings show, the Persians were of Western origin. Their ancestors, the Elamites and Medes, were closely associated with the Scythians. (Click here and here for more information.)
Two ancient sculptures of Ahura Mazda. The Nordic features are most distinctive. The word Mazda means "knowledge" or "wisdom."
Shushinak of the Avan dynasty: One of the oldest god-kings of Iran. His cult stretches back over 8,000 years. His headdress contains stylized horns. The horn-headdress eventually became crowns. The features of the god king are noticeably Western.
A man would think the Persians learned all their magic from them - Pliny (on the Druids)
From the sixth century B.C. on, Iran underwent a vast expansion by the Aryan Persians. Under Arshama, there arose one of the greatest personalities of Indo-European history, Spitama (Zoroaster, or Zarathustra). Concerned about the fate of the Aryan minority, he developed an idea which is only now beginning to revive in the Nordic west—protecting the race by endogamy within kin. But since the Aryan ruling aristocracy were sparsely scattered, Zoroaster tried to reinforce this imperative by creating an ideologically bound community of faith. Ahura Mazda, the eternal god of light, became a cosmic idea—the divine protector of Aryans everywhere. He had no special abode or temple like the gods of the orient and even of later Rome. He was simply the holy whiteness of perfection. His enemy is the dark Ahriman who is locked in struggle with him for world domination - Alfred Rosenberg (Myth of the Twentieth Century, 1930)
When the ancient Greek writers wanted to distinguish the Assyrians from the Arameans or Syrians, the Greeks called the Assyrians ‘Leucosyri’— meaning ‘whites’ or ‘blonds,’ as distinct from the very brunette Syrians who still live in Mesopotamia - Dr. Herman Hoeh (Plain Truth, January 1963)
In 1907, a large number of clay tablets were found in the palace archives of Boghazkoy, the capital of the ancient Hittites in the north of the Anatolian plateau. These tablets contain the first recorded mention of the name ‘mithra’ who, together with the Lord of Heaven, is invoked as the protector of a treaty between the Hatti (= Hittites) and their neighbors, the Mitanni. The date of the treaty is somewhere in the fourteenth century BC - M. J. Vermaseren (Mithras, the Secret God)
Indo-European religiosity is not slavery, it contains none of the implorings of a downtrodden slave to his all-powerful lord, but comprises rather the confiding fulfilment of a community comprising Gods and men. Plato speaks in his Banquet (188c) of a “mutual community (philia) between Gods and men”. The Teuton was certain of the friendship of his God, of the astvin or the fulltrui whom he fully trusted, and with the Hellenes in the Odyssey (XXIV, 514) the same certainty is found expressed in the words “friends of the Gods” (theoi philoi). In the Bhagavad Gita of the Indians (IV, 3) the God Krishna calls the man Arjuna his friend. The highest deity such as Zeus is honoured as “Father of the Gods and of men” — as a family father, as Zeus Herkeios, not as a despot. This idea is also expressed in the names of the Gods: Djaus pitar with the Indians and Jupiter with the Romans. The name of the Indian God Mitra, which corresponded to Mithra in Iran, means “friend”. Mazdaism, founded by Zoroaster, called the morally acting man a friend of Ahura Mazda, the One Universal God, who in the era of Achaemenides became the God of the Persian Empire. According to Plato (Laws, IV, 716) the man of moderation and self-control is above all “a friend of God”– Prof. Hans F. K. Gunther (The Religious Attitudes of the Indo-Europeans)
"The Roaring Lion"...This relief on the house of Caius Manilius, in the Via del Portico d'Ottavia, shows a lion (the symbol of Rome) seizing a deer - (Rome, Knopf Guides, 1994)
The word Scythian derives from the root Saca, from which come words such as sacred, sacrament, sage, saga, and stag. The root is most likely a variation of a word referring to the stag god of the ancient Irish. This stag god is also known as Cernunnos or Herne. The word Zak, or Ztakh, means "stag." A pseudonym for the Scythians was Scuts, which can also be rendered Scots.
Horned animals such as the stag, goat, and ram, were sacred to the Scythians, Goths, and Druid Elders of Western lands. The images of the male stag and female hind can be found on many coats of arms and on the heraldry of many old and illustrious families.
The god Horus was often represented with the horns of both a ram and a goat - Frank Higgins (Ancient Freemasonry)
The divine ram god of the ancient Egyptian city of Mendes. Note the two pairs of horns (ram's and goat's), the the solar disk, and protecting serpent. In Sumerian mythology, the god Enki was symbolized by a horned goat. Enki was known as Ea in the Babylonian tradition. The word Enki is believed to mean "Lord of the Earth." In this instance Enki is akin to the Irish forest god Herne. (Click here for more info on Enki).
The Irish god Herne (the "horned" or "honored" one) was also known as Cernunnos and Nikor. This image is from the Gundestrup cauldron. Herne wears the original crown of thorns. Herne's Indian equivalent is Shiva Pashupati, god of the animals. Herne holds the serpent and torc, which are symbols of wisdom and royalty. Torcs of this kind have been found in Egyptian tombs, for instance, that of Tutankhamen. The stag was a symbol of the Arya. The word stag may be the origin of Saga, meaning Scythian.
A prehistoric image of the great stag on a cave wall. The male stag and female hind were the only animals capable of eating of the yew tree without being poisoned. The yew was one of the most sacred trees to the Druids. The word Jew originally meant "Man of the Yew," connoting a Druidic Elder.
The god Mercury beside the goat. Mercury was the Roman version of the Greek Hermes. Hermes was an adaptation of the Irish Herne. In the Egyptian pantheon Thoth is the equivalent of Herne. In India he is Shiva and to the Orphics he was Orpheus.
The god Pan with the hooves and horns of the goat. Pan is yet another variation of the original forest god. Michelangelo depicted his Moses with goat horns. Did the great sculptor know that the horns symbolized godliness and wisdom? Was he letting us know that Moses, the great leader of the "Israelites" was, like his people, from the West?
Michelangelo's depiction of the Israelite Moses with goat horns, signifying the ancient god of the Aryans and Scythians. Let us remember the passage in Samuel (16:1-13), which reads: Zadok the priest took a horn of oil out of the tabernacle, and anointed Solomon. So, we see that kings of the ancient world, as well as Messiahs, were anointed with oil from a sacred horn.
A fair-complexioned Jesus with the lamb and shepherd's crook. There is hardly a single aspect of Christian iconography or theology that was not plagiarized and cannibalized from earlier pagan traditions.
The Roman god Mercury with the ram. This image is similar to many Christian portrayals of Jesus holding the lamb.
The Phoenician fertility god Tascio with goat-headed chaplet. In ancient times the goat symbolized divinity. (Click here for more on the Goths and Phoenicians.)
The icon Baphomet (as conceived by Eliphas Levi), was, allegedly, worshipped by the Knights Templar. The Atonist Templars and Masons are the unworthy inheritors of the entire Druidic corpus. Although most of their rituals and degrees appear to derive from Judaic traditions they, in fact, derive from Irish and Aryan traditions. Their Baphomet is merely a rendition of Herne. The words goat and god come from the same root. Before it was demonized by mythmongers eager to conceal the truth about the origins of Judeo-Christianity, the image of the goat signified god. This is because, as we have said, the earliest god worshipped was the forest god Herne. Herne was the gatekeeper and guide of the initiated into the spirit world. The icon represents the unification of the masculine and feminine polarities.
The Goat Throne, as used by "Gothic" chieftains and nobles. (See L. A. Waddell.)
Far Left: The Roman goddess Diana with her totem, the hind. Goddess of the hunt and of the forest, she was based on Danu of the ancient Druids. There are images showing the Egyptian Isis with the hind. These are not found in most history books. Both Isis and Diana were connected with the moon. (See Appendix Eight)
Early British coins, featuring the symbol of the goat. This animal was the main tribal insignia of the Goths, Phoenicians, Hittites, and other Aryan cultures. The goat was often depicted near the cross and a variety of stellar symbols. (Click here for more info.)
The Red Men
...have all deep blue eyes, and bright red hair - Herodotus (on the appearance of the Scythians)
And he sent, and brought David in. Now he was ruddy (red) and withal of a beautiful countenance, and goodly to look at – Dr. Donald Redford (Egypt, Canaan and Israel in Ancient Times)
The Scythians were "Celts" or, more correctly, Gaels. This term connoted "purity" or "whiteness." The term Goth has a similar meaning. One group of Goths were known as Visigoths, which means "white" or "wise" Goths. (Here for more.)
It is surely pertinent that almost all traditions which refer to culture-heroes…describe them as white, tall, bearded, and invariably superior to the aboriginal peoples among whom they appeared — often suddenly — to impart laws, crafts and useful information - D. S. Allan and J. B. Delair (When the Earth Nearly Died)
On the right we see a mosaic showing a Goth. The word literally meant "Goat Man," "Good Man," or "God Man." The syllable got (and also get and gut) refers to the goat. It also refers to god, goodness and holiness. The term Goth has been purposely mistranslated to mean "Bucket Men," or "Those Who Pour." Similarly, and equally preposterously, the term Scythian has been mistranslated to mean "Men of the Spears," in an attempt to have the world believe the Scythians were barbarous European horseback-riding invaders. In fact, as the Irish and Scottish annals relate, in the early days the Scythians (under Fenius Farsa and his sons) had colleges of language and esoteric learning all over the globe, and around 1400 BC a particular group of Scythians were privileged guests in Egypt. (Here for more on Fenius Farsa.)
The names of the ancient people and rivers of Spain…undoubtedly conferred by the Phoenicians, when collated with the Gaelic, exhibit equally satisfactory evidence of the identity of that language with the Phoenician, without an exception – Sir Walter Bentham (The Gael and the Cymbri, 1834)
Monsieur Gebelin, who is called by Colonel Vallencey a great luminary of learning says, the Greek or Pelasgian, before the time of Homer and Hesiod, sprung from the Celtic, and from the same Celtic, the Latin and Etruscan: all facts which I think cannot be disputed – Godfrey Higgins (Celtic Druids)
That the Hebrew and Irish languages reciprocate many of their words is as true as that the people who once spoke Hebrew had a common origin with those called Celts – Anna Wilkes (Ur of the Chaldees)
The termination words in Celtic and Latin differ, but it is curious how the root forms of the Latin are discoverable to be Celtic. The proper names of the oldest Latin families are formed on a Celtic basis, thus – Claudius, Catullus, Cato, Pompeius, Lucullus, Camillus, Marcus, etc. – ibid
Although Welsh enthusiasts claim the greatest antiquity for their tongue, many philologists lean to the Irish language. Elton affirms that it “seems to be of all the Celtic languages the farthest removed from the Latin;” and that “the oldest Irish is found to be the original, not merely of the modern Erse, but also of the Manx.” Ussher found it nearest to Hebrew. O’Flaherty traced it to Phoenicia. Sir William Temple regarded it as an original language. H. O’Brien sees Hebrew derived from this primordial tongue. From Hamilco we should learn that the Carthaginians of his day thought more of the Sacred Island “extensively inhabited by the Hiberni,” than they did of the Island of Albiones (Britain) – James Bonwick (Irish Druids and Old Irish Religions, 1894)
The languages of the Aryans and the Semites differed essentially, though there are points of connexity between them. The Aryan language was immensely superior – Ernest Renan (History of the People of Israel Till the Time of King David)
...many of the gods worshipped at Memphis were considered by Herodotus to be Phoenician deities - Samuel Sharpe (Egyptian Mythology and Egyptian Christianity)
Above left we see a photograph of a Nordic-type male with blond hair and beard. He has been burned red by the sun. In ancient days when men from the West arrived in the Near East or Asia, on ships or on horseback, with their piercing blue eyes, tattoos, and copper jewelry, they were taken for gods and referred to as "red men." This is rendered "Edomite" in the Bible.
In Scripture Phoenicia was closely related to Edom, both meaning “red man”...They had, moreover, kings before Israel and were among the most highly civilized of the early races in the most distant prehistoric times – Comyns Beaumont (The Riddle of Prehistoric Britain)
Another feature to be observed of the Giants is that nearly always they are described as red-haired, as were the Adamites and Edomites, names derived from the Hebrew adom or edom, red or ruddy...The same applies to the Phoenicians of like stock, whose name is but a derivation of the word meaning red or carroty, relating to a ruddy-faced people – ibid
…many personalities are alluded to in the Biblical texts by their predominant ‘redness’…King David was, for absolutely no apparent reason, said to be red – Ralph Ellis (Solomon:Falcon of Sheba)
The casual Roman attitude toward slavery...is well illustrated by the famous anecdote about Pope Gregory the Great's...first encounter with Englishmen. He notices them on sale while passing through the Roman market and, taken by their blond beauty, asks what manner of men they are. "Angli" (Angles or Englishmen), comes the reply. Witty Gregory indulges himself in a pun, saying they are aptly named for they look like angeli, angels - Thomas Cahill (How the Irish Saved Civilization)
In the Zagros hills and across the plain to the Tigris, there lived a...fair-haired...people akin to the Guti (Goths) who...remained in what was afterwards Assyria - C. Leonard Woolley (Sumerians)
Greek historians knew that the mystery school of Pythagoras was actually inspired by a Western Scythian known as Abaris, a name that should probably be rendered Ab Ari, meaning "Great One of the Ari or Arya." In any case, Abaris was clearly a Western adept. The words abbe and rabbi (meaning "priest") come from the same root as Abaris.
…Himerius speaks of Abaris, the sage, from Scythia, but well acquainted with Greek, with this description: "Abaris came to Athens, holding a bow, having a quiver hanging from his shoulders, his body wrapt up in a plaid, and wearing trousers reaching from the soles of his feet to his waist." Cicero knew Divitiacus, who professed the knowledge of Nature's secrets, though regarded as a Hyperborean. Could these have been the Scythians from Tartary, the descendants of the wise men who gave their religion and the arrow-headed letters to Assyrian-Semitic conquerors, who had come down as Turanian roamers to the Plains of Babylon, and whose Chaldæan faith spread even to Egypt and Europe? It would seem more probable - James Bonwick (Irish Druids and Old Irish Religions, 1894)
…there was Abaris, a Druid and a native of the Shetland Isles who traveled into Greece, where he formed a friendship with Pythagoras and where his learning, his politeness, his shrewdness, and expedition in business, and above all, the ease and elegance with which he spoke the Athenian tongue, and which (so said the orator Himerius) would have made one believe that he had been brought up in the academy or the Lycceum - W. Winwood Reade (The Veil of Isis)
Scythians, Atonists, and Templars
The Druidical religion prevailed not only in Britain, but likewise all over the East - Edward Vaughan Kenealy (Book of God)
As stated above, we believe that a contingent of Western Scythians were at one time close allies of the Egyptian Atonists. Indeed, there is reason to believe that these Scythians were the Atonists of Egypt. Because Atonism is the root both of Judeo-Christianity and Freemasonry, it does not surprise us to see Masonic Orders such as the Knights Templar employing symbolism that connotes the Scythians and Atonists.
Members of the Spanish branch of the Knights Templar. Note the white tunic and red double-cross motif.
In our estimation, the very insignia of the Templars (two knights riding a single steed facing West) commemorates the Scythian-Hyksos or Scythian-Atonist blood bond.
The so-called "Double Cross of Lorraine" appears to us to be another prominent Masonic emblem connoting the same tryst. Interestingly, Charles de Lorraine, of the French House of Lorraine, was apparently the main patron of Adam Weishaupt and his Illuminati. Weishaupt's political and social ideologies are known to have influenced American presidents John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, and Thomas Jefferson, as well as many other influential personages throughout the world. The Illuminist or, more correctly, Atonist emblems appear on American bank notes and in the architecture of most towns and cities.
Furthermore, Benjamin Franklin's code name was "Moses." His personal design for the American one-dollar-bill depicted the Israelites leaving Egypt during their exodus. (For more information on this, refer to Volume One, chapter forty two, and to our DVD entitled The Irish Origins of Civilization.)
Left: Charles de Lorraine: Patron of the Illuminati. Researchers who imagine that the Illuminati were anti-royalist are grievously misinformed. Although this is the impression the secret society's elite members attempted to generate, it is anything but the truth. European royals were, and still are, the power behind the world's prominent secret societies. Their interests have never been the overthrow of orthodox religion or monarchy, or the liberation of humanity. This idea existed only in the mind's of gullible, misinformed lower rank members.
Above: The emblem of the Knights Templar: Two knights riding a single steed facing West. Although many ridiculous explanations regarding this strange symbol have been proffered forth through the years, we believe the emblem represents the age old Scythian-Hyksos, or Scythian-Atonist alliance, that is the ancient confederation of Gaels from Europe with Egyptians of Lower Egypt, as mentioned in early Irish chronicles. The horse was a seminal symbol for the Scythians. If the Scythians were the Hyksos, or allied with them, then they were surely Atonists. After entering Egypt as welcome scholars and mercenaries, they married in with the families of prominent Egyptians, such as Pharaoh Akhenaton. This much is confirmed by the Irish annals. After the removal and exile of the demented tyrant Akhenaton, the Atonists moved Westward toward ancestral habitats. The coming of the Atonists to Spain and Ireland was recorded in histories dealing with the "Milesian" invasion of Ireland, allegedly dated to approximately 600 BC. The Milesians were referred to as Gaels, which traditionally means they were "Celts." The term Gael allegedly derives from the Scottish version of King Mile's name, Gathelos or Gaythelos. Their ancestors in Ireland were the Megalithic Druids who were, in our estimation, close allies of the Egyptian Amenists. This made the Druids rivals to the Atonists or Milesians. And this accounts for why we read of the antipathy that quickly lead to all out war between the Druids (Megalithic Irish) and the Milesians. (See Volume One for more on this subject; the chapter entitled: The Atonists Arrive).
The Tuatha de Danann were the ancient inhabitants of Ireland who were forced to give way to the Gaels and to become the gods of Celtic imagination, the lords of the subterranean world. There is no doubt that the name Tuatha de Danann was given to the pre-Celtic inhabitants of Ireland and that it must have been they who built the megaliths. Their uncertain origins combined with their curious stone constructions give them a cloak of mystery...If the Celts drove out the megalithic peoples of Ireland, there is no reason why the same thing should not have happened on the continent, where much of the region occupied by the Celts still bears traces of megalithic monuments – Jean Markale (The Celts)
The Sarmatians were a tribe connected to the Scythians, roamed and dominated the Southern Russian Steppes, and buried their dead in Kurgens, which resemble Celtic Cairns…They are now thought to have been the allied with the Amazons, since their women were known to be fighters, priestesses, and to ride horses with great skill during battle. They were primarily blonde. It is also believed that the myth of King Arthur arises from the Sarmatian riders who accompanied the Romans to Britain as mercenaries
The Cross of Lorraine: Also referred to as the "Double Cross." We believe it connotes the alliance between ancient Atonists, preserved to the present day by the world's royal dynasties and major secret societies.Atonism is the root of Judeo-Christianity.It may also signify Jesus and Akhenaton - that is - the Christ and the Christ before the Christ. The trefoil motifs are a throwback to Druidry. (Click image for more info.)

Israel and Jesus (Two Irish Words)
Of course, there was an Israel! The name itself is used already at the close of the Late Bronze Age on an Egyptian monument to refer to the People of Canaan that Pharaoh Merenptah’s military campaign into Palestine fought against. But this is not the Israel that the Bible deals with – Thomas L. Thompson (The Mythic Past: Biblical Archaeology And The Myth Of Israel)
The truth about the origins of Israel and the so-called "Israelites" is covered at length in the Irish Origins of Civilization books and DVD series. This word Israel is made from three syllables: Is, Ra, and El. Each syllable appears to refer to the three great Cults of antiquity, namely, the Stellar, Solar, and Saturnian Cults. However, the fusion of syllables may also refer to the alliance between Scythian-Atonists and Hyksos-Atonists.
The origin of the syllable "Is" could be Iesa or Esa, the sun god of the ancient Druids. The syllable "Ra" may refer to Amen Ra, who was the sun god of the ancient Egyptians. So, the word Israel may be a fusion of the names of two important sun gods. In this case, the suffix "el" may mean "messenger of" or "servant of." An Israelite, then, would originally have been a messenger or agent of Esus and Ra. The word Israel indicates that there were indeed connections between the Amenists of Egypt and the Druids of Britain and Scandinavia.
The names of the patriarchal heroes, as that of God Himself, are non-Semitic...and go back to the earliest known civilizations in the near East, indeed of the world – John Allegro (The Chosen People)
The monuments prove that, quite early in the Dynastic Period, there was known and worshipped in Lower Egypt another form of the Sun-god who was called RA. Of his origin and early history nothing is known, and the meaning of his name has not yet been satisfactorily explained. It does not seem to be Egyptian – E. A. Wallis Budge (Tutankhamen: Amenism, Atenism and Egyptian Monotheism)
In the Book of Genesis (Chapter 32, Verses 27 to 28), we read that the Israelite Jacob (the son of Isaac and grandson of Abraham) was renamed "Israel" by the Lord. Genesis also tells us that his elder twin brother was named Esau. Esau was also named Edom, meaning "red one." In fact, this Esau is, according to the Old Testament, the ancestor of the so-called "Edomites." In any case, can we surmise the name Esau to be Celtic (Scythian) in origin? Is it a rendering of Esus, the great lord of the Gaels, Goths, and Arya? Interestingly, the Book of Genesis describes Esau as a adept hunter. And that description certainly harkens back to Esus and to Herne, the animal and forest gods of the Western elders. The story of the twin brothers, Jacob (Israel) and Esau, appears to be taken from earlier myths of pagan peoples. The version of their story that appears in the ex-canonical Book of Jubilees, is strongly reminiscent of the Egyptian story concerning the conflict between the twins Horus and Set.
The word Horus can be rendered in many ways. It can be found as Horos, Heru, Hor, and Ha. The word means "boundary" or "circle." Astrologically, it referred to the horizon, the boundary over which the sun god passes daily and yearly. The words hour, horizon, and horoscope come from the name of the Egyptian sun god.
A pseudonym for Horus was Iusa or Iusas. When the letter "I" is translated as "J," we have Jusa or Jusas. This is the origin of the Biblical Jesus. He is simply a version of Horus, who was a version of the Irish Iesa, Hesus, Esus, or Esa. Just because there are many variants in spelling and pronunciation of this antique name, does not change the fact that it refers to the antetype of most of the world's most prominent sun gods:
The Celtic Heus or Esus was a mysterious god of Gaul. The Irish form was Aesar, meaning, he who kindles a fire, and the Creator. In this we are reminded of the Etruscan Aesar, the Egyptian sun bull Asi, the Persian Aser, the Scandinavian Aesir, and the Hindoo Aeswar. The Bhagavat-Gita says of the last that “he resides in every mortal” – James Bonwick (Irish Druids and Old Irish Religions, 1894)
The astounding fact is that whereas the Sadducean Judeans were never familiar with the name of the Messiah, His name was known to the British long before the memorable event transpired on Golgotha’s Hill. It was a name familiar on the lips of every Briton. The indisputable fact is that the Druids proclaimed the name first to the world…How the Druidic Priesthood knew the consecrated name so long beforehand is indeed a mystery in itself. The name ‘Yesu’ was incorporated in the Druidic Trinity as the Godhead – George F. Jowett (The Drama of the Lost Disciples)
Constantine was the ruling spirit at Nicea and he ultimately decided upon a new god...To involve British factions, he ruled that the name for the great Druid god, Hesus, be joined with the Eastern Savior-god, Krishna (Krishna is Sanskrit for Christ), and then Hesus Krishna would be the official name of the new Roman god – Tony Bushby (The Forged Origins of the New Testament. Article in Nexus Magazine: Vol. 14, Nu. 4)
Paul also introduced an important change to Jesus’ title of Christ (Christos). The Gospels tell us that his immediate followers called him “the Christ” (ho Christos), showing they regarded him as the prophesized Messiah. Paul dropped the definite article, calling Jesus simply Christos, turning it into a name – Jesus Christ – probably to emphasize his uniqueness and distance him further from the Jewish interpretation of his mission…Many authorities argue that…Paul was influenced by the pagan mystery cults of Rome, and that he freely borrowed concepts from them – Picknettt and Prince (Masks of Christ)
Horus, Osiris, and the Pharaoh. The Pharaoh was, like Jesus, the god made flesh. He was a personification of Horus. Osiris was the name of the sun after it sank beneath the horizon into the underworld. When it was reborn every morning, it was known as Horus, the "Risen One." When the sun annually reached the Winter Solstice point it was known as Osiris. When it rose above the Spring Equinox it was Horus. When the sun reached an equinox point it was "on the cross," or "crucified." (For more on this, see our book Astro-Theology and Sidereal Mythology)
An ancient pseudonym for Horus Iusa or Iusas. When the letter "I" is translated as "J," we have Jusa or Jusa, from which we derive Jesus. The Biblical Son of God, therefore, was based on the Egyptian Sun of Heaven, who was, in turn, a version of the Druidic Sun King.
Esus cutting a tree. He was the original "carpenter" on which the Biblical Jesus was partly based. He was the foremost Druidic god and his name has been rendered in a multiplicity of ways, such as Esa, Hesa, Hesu, Isa, Iesa, Iusa, and Aesar, etc. He was undoubtedly the antetype for Egyptian and Christian Earth and Sun gods of later ages (such as Osiris and Horus, etc). Moreover, Esus was a crucified god, depicted suspended in the air with his arms outstretched. His body was pierced with a spear and his spilt blood rejuvenated the Earth. He was part of the Druidic trinity that included Taranis and Bel. Bel can be found in Babylon as Ba'al and in Canaan as Bel. His name meant "white" or "bright. " Cities such as Belfast and Belgrade (the "white city") are name after this deity. In the Nordic tradition Odin in proximity to the sacred tree. (Here for more.)
Left: Horus leading the "dead" to everlasting life. Right: The "Aryan" Christ/Iusas/Hesus/Iesa. The name Jesus is obviously a derivation of Iesa, as is the Egyptian name Iusa or Iusas. The letter "J" was interchangeable with "I." This was the case with the words Jew and Judah, which, according to some scholars, originated from Iauda or Auada.
The Druid-Israelite Connection
The Druids were dressed in white robes, the Bard in blue. The Arch-Druid wore a golden breastplate set with twelve jewels, similar to the breastplate of the high priest of Israel. Such a breastplate has been found on a skeleton in one of the Stonehenge tombs - Fredrick Haberman (Tracing Our Ancestors)
The elites of today's world have empowered themselves by way of the ancient knowledge appropriated from the high traditions of the Arya.
As we show above, and as we will continue to show, the symbols, and icons and idioms that have been employed by Eastern peoples (Sumerians, Egyptians, Israelites, and others) derive from the Druidic canon.
They derive from the Stellar Gnosis that was studied to perfection in Ireland, and which was transported by the Druids throughout the world. These early travelers stunned the tribes they visited. The ancient nations knew and respected the Druids and many people, in search of truth, flocked to their colleges.
Even though the mythmongers could not resist incorporating the symbolism of the ancient Druids and Amenists, it was not of their own making. The pagan leitmotifs and references to the goddess tradition are not of Jewish origin, and rabbis have had some difficulty explaining the "goddess" imagery that appears in their scriptures.
She is more precious than rubies: and all the things thou canst desire are not to be compared unto her. Length of days is in her right hand; and in her left hand riches and honour. Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace. She is a tree of life to them that lay hold upon her: and happy is every one that retaineth her - (Proverbs 3:15-18)
Druidism and Judeo-Christianity
The Arch-Druid wore bands precisely resembling those which the Romish and English clergy wear now, and which a short time ago the students of our universities were compelled to wear in their public examinations - W. Winwood Reade (The Veil of Isis: Or the Mysteries of the Druids)
The Pope of Rome exactly resembles the Secular High-Priest of ancient Rome, and in Latin his title is the same - Pontifex Maximus. The office was probably an imitation of that of the Arch-Druid, who, as I have described, had supreme power over secular as well as ecclesiastical affairs, and who was surrounded by a Senate of the Chief Druids, as the Pontifex Maximus was by Flamines, and the Pope by Cardinals - ibid
The facts about the Western origins of the major elements of civilization have been cryptically referenced in the Bible and other Judeo-Christian scriptures. Indeed, Druidic elements can be found throughout the texts and traditions of the corrupted solar religions that assimilated and cannibalized the ancestral traditions of the elder race. A few of the more obvious examples are:
Noah and his ark The great deluge God's wrath with mankind Moses and the burning bush The name of Jehovah (or Yahweh) The twelve tribes of Israel The Brazen Serpent in the Wilderness The Trees of Life and of Good and Evil References to the Mount of Olives and fig tree The garden of Gethsemane Judas hanging himself from a tree Moses erecting a circle of 12 stones at Gilgal and Sinai David and Goliath The nativity and visitation of the three wise men Joseph being a "carpenter" Baptism of Jesus by John Christ entering the temple at twelve years of age Christ dying at age thirty-three Christ's ministry lasting 3 years The Last Supper with chalice The anointing and Eucharist ritual The twelve disciples The sermon on the mount The crucifixion on Skull Hill The internment, transfiguration, and resurrection Joseph of Arimathea (supposed uncle of Jesus)
Of course, we are not told anything about the Druidic origins of Judeo-Christianity by the sanctimonious mythmongers whose deliberate and calculated misinterpretations serve to undermine the reason of Christians and Jews, thus preventing the true foundations of religion from coming to light. The mythmongers, ensconced in Britain and Rome, inverted the true story concerning the origins of religion. Their ideological descendants continue with the work of deception. The elements of civilization, they falsely contend, first moved from the eastern to the Western hemisphere. There can be no sanity in this world, politically or spiritually, until this lie is dashed and the true facts are brought to light.
Notably, in an Irish version of the gospel of St. Matthew, the phrase “there came wise men from the east” is rendered “the Druids came from the east.” In like manner, in the Old Testament, Exodus vii. II, the “magicians of Egypt” are made “Druids of Egypt" - James Bonwick (Irish Druids and Old Irish Religions)
According to the rather bizarre and improbable story, the ten Israelite tribes, after their release from captivity in Babylon, decided not to return to their beloved holy city of Jerusalem that they had been so long in building. Instead, they decided to move West. Allegedly, they followed their leader Jeremiah and crossed the Caucasus Mountain ranges into Europe. These so-called Israelites were apparently known as the "Sons of Isaac." This term was also rendered "Isaac's Sons" and, later, as "Saxons." Therefore, the British-Israelite pseudo-historians have decided that "Anglo-Saxons" are originally "Aryan-Israelites" from Judea and Palestine. This may be true but, historically speaking, the migration of these so-called Israelites occurred in relatively recent times. So much had been going on in previous centuries when the men who truly and deservedly bore the titles "Israelite," "Judite," "Jew" and "Levite," walked the Earth. Modern teachers have warily chosen to refer to early epochs as "Mythological Cycles." They dismiss them and concentrate attention on relatively recent historical times and events. In our work we explore the unadulterated meanings of the problematic terms Jew, Judite, Levite and Israelite. We explore the true origins of the names Jehovah, Yahweh, Adonai, and Elohim.
The truth is that the so-called "Israelites" of the Old Testament, were, in fact, wealthy pharaohs in Egypt. Investigations made in the last decade and a half, into the ancestry of the "Jews," have conclusively proven this to have been the case. Recent research has served to uncover scandalous mythmongering and misuse of terms, titles, and words. Thanks to authors Ahmed Osman, Mustapha Gadalla, and Ralph Ellis, many key historical theories of earlier men of genius (Sigmund Freud, Karl Abrahams, Immanuel Velikovsky, Comyns Beaumont, Conor MacDari, and others) have been confirmed and reinforced. In short, we now know the true identity of the misnamed "Israelites" and "Judites" - the so-called "Twelve Tribes." We know that once-upon-a-time they were identical with the infamous Hyksos pharaohs whose origins have been a bone of contention among Egyptologists for decades.
A mural of St. Patrick. He stands between the pillars of a Masonic-style archway and under a solar disk emitting rays. The female to his right, representing the land of Ireland, is shown demure and humbled.
St. Patrick's reputed success with the snakes is a rich metaphor to illustrate the ultimate triumph of orthodoxy over a pre-existing form of Christianity in Ireland, which consisted of sects like the Orphites. Even a sensible observer like Michael Viney agreed that the snakes 'could actually have been a metaphor for the pagan druids and the symbol of their rival religion' - Bob Quinn (The Atlantean Irish)
Origin of the Crucified Savior
Osiris and Horus were crucified as 'saviors' and 'redeemers;' the sufferings, death, and resurrection of Osiris forming the great mystery of the Egyptian religion. Prometheus, of Greece, was with chains nailed to the rocks of Mount Caucasus, 'with arms extended,' as a savior; and the tragedy of the crucifixion was acted in Athens 500 years before the Christian era - William W. Hardwicke (The Evolution of Man)
Below we see the Aryan Lord Vishnu with outstretched arms. He embraces and blesses the universe. In the center, we see Quetzalcoatl (the "Feathered Serpent") on his cross. This god was described as being fair of complexion, that is, tall, blond, and blue-eyed. On the right, we see a sculpture of Osiris holding and Ankh, or cross of life, in either hand. Osiris was a "crucified" god. He appears in the Gospels as Lazarus. His early name, Wesir, is very near to the modern word "West."
To the west, to the mansions of Osiris, To the west thou are going. Thou who were best among men, Who did hate the untrue - (Egyptian hymn to Osiris)
In Scandinavian mythology, the god-man Odin hung himself upside-down upon Yggdrasil (the "World Ash Tree") in order to attain enlightenment. The symbolism we speak of and see here did not arise because of the dispersion of Jews and Christians. No, the same high symbolism is found the world over because of the migration of the Arya. Like Quetzalcoatl, they too were fair-complexioned and from the West.
The mythographers have used many excuses in an attempt to disguise the Egyptian and Druidic origins of their symbolism and iconography. Most of the stories and tales in the Jewish books and Old Testament have undergone heavy revision. The accounts of Pharez and Zarah, of David and Goliath, of Salome and the Baptist's beheading, and of the forty days in the wilderness, of Solomon and the two mothers, the massacre of the innocents, and the plagues of Egypt, for example, have each been given "the treatment."
Lord Vishnu Cruciform
Quetzalcoatl on the cross
The Egyptian cross
Observe the images below. On the left we see outstretched human arms and the Ankh or Crux Ansata. We also see the sun. On the right we see the well known image of Jesus on the cross. We see the cross or crucifix and outstretched arms. The image of the divided or quartered god-man was known throughout the world thousands of years before the advent of Christianity. In the Egyptian rendering, we see two females (Isis and Nephthys) in close proximity to the cross. In the Christian rendering, we see the two Marys (the Virgin Mary and Mary Magdalene) at the foot of the cross. Most of what we read, in the New Testament, from the Nativity to the Resurrection, has its origins in the Astro-Theological canon of Irish Druids and Egyptian Amenists.
Your feet are on the earth Your head is in the sky You stand up with the strength of your arms, But your weight rests upon the secret The sky is over you, the underworld beneath you, The wind is the air in your nostrils (Ancient Egyptian Hymn to Shu)
The Lakota Sun Dance ceremony was, to all intents and purposes, a "crucifixion." The candidate was raised into the air, his arms outstretched to embrace the cosmos. During the ceremony the candidate experienced the presence of the "Great Spirit." The idea of the circle and cross and of a ritual sacrifice was common throughout the Americas long before Christianity made an appearance. (In Mexico, the "Feathered Serpent" was seen in proximity to a cross.) North-American Indian tribes had elaborate annual rites with rich cosmological and astro-theological themes. Giant medicine wheels (representing zodiacs) were constructed on the plains. Some of these earthworks are approximately 10,000 years old. (Here for more)
In the solar mythology, the sun god is regularly "crucified" as he crosses over the equinoxes and when he wanes towards the end of the year - D. M. Murdock (Christ in Egypt)
Osiris was represented as being stretched on the immense cross formed by the junction of the meridian and the equator. This deity was suspended in the Phrygian mysteries to a cruciform tree – Arthur Dyott Thompson (On Mankind: Their Origin and Destiny)
In all private religious associations and secret cults of later antiquity the members made use of a secret sign of recognition or union. This they carried about in the form, in some cases, of wooden, bronze, or silver amulets hung around the neck or concealed beneath the clothes, in others woven in their garments, or tattooed upon the forehead, neck, breast, hands, etc,. Among these signs was the cross, and it was usually described under the name “Tau” after the letter of the old Phoenician alphabet - Arthur Dewes (The Christ Myth)
...the non-Christians possessed crosslike sacred objects and revered their idols of gods in the shape of a cross or in cruciform. In fact, Tertullian is very insistent on this point, stating of the Pagans, "your religion is all cross" and "your gods in their origin have proceeded from this hated cross" - D. M. Murdock (Christ in Egypt)
A number of Egyptian goddesses are likewise depicted in cruciform, with arms and wings outstretched, found in tombs and commonly on coffins - ibid
...regarding the cross and the image of a god in cruciform - or the crucifix - William Williamson states: "The cross...is a symbol of the highest antiquity, but the representation of a figure with the hands and feet pierced with nails belongs to a later period. The most ancient delineation of the cruciform attitude is the figure of the god in the vault of heaven, with outstretched arms, blessing the universe - ibid
The ritual lamentation of the divine sisters, Isis and Nephthys, for Osiris...is found in the temple remains of the island of Philae expressly connected with the representation of Osiris in the form of a crucifix, the God's head standing on top of a four-barred Nilometer, faced by the mourning female figures - John M. Robertson (Christianity and Mythology)
Osiris has been found in this attitude. Also Vishnu as Witoba is presented as the crucified in what has been termed the crucifixion in space; the crucifixion without a cross, in which the god himself is the cross in a male form - Gerald Massey
Osiris was represented as being stretched on the immense cross formed by the junction of the meridian and the equator. This deity was suspended in the Phrygian mysteries to a cruciform tree – Arthur Dyott Thompson (On Mankind: Their Origin and Destiny)
We have evidence from the pyramid of Medum (Meidoun) that from 6,000 to 7,000 years ago the dead in Egypt were buried in a faith which was founded on the mystery of the cross, and rationally founded too, because that cross was a figure of the fourfold foundation on which heaven itself was built - ibid
The symbol of the cross originated as part of an ancient Egyptian initiatory rite, and eventually found its way into Christianity. The church stated that in its history, ‘there is no proof of the use of a cross until much later’ than the Sixth Century. It is recorded in Christian archives that the general use of the crucifix was ratified at the Sixth Ecumenical Council in 680…The Council decreed that ‘the figure of a man fastened to a cross be now adopted’ and the new church logo was later confirmed by Emperor Hadrian I (772-95). About a century later, the first pictures of Jesus Christ standing against a cross slowly started to appear – Tony Bushby (Secret in the Bible)
The attention of the writer having been called to the fact that all Indo-Germanic nations have worshipped crucified Saviours, an investigation of the subject was made. Overwhelming proof was obtained that the sun-myths of the ancient Aryans were the origin of the religions in all of the countries which were peopled by the Aryans. The Saviours worshipped in these lands are personifications of the Sun, the chief god of the Aryans. That Pagan nations worshipped a crucified man, was admitted by the Fathers of the early Christian Church. The holy Father Minucius Felix, in his Octavius, written as late as A. D. 211, indignantly resents the supposition that the sign of the cross should be considered as exclusively a Christian symbol ; and represents his advocate of the Christian argument as retorting on an infidel opponent thus: "As for the adoration of crosses, which you object to against us, I must tell you that we neither adore crosses nor desire them. You it is, ye Pagans, who worship wooden gods, who are the most likely people to adore wooden crosses, as being parts of the same substance with your deities – Charles Morris (Aryan Sun Myths)
Tertullian, a Christian Father of the second and third centuries, writing to the Pagans, says: "The origin of your gods is derived from figures moulded on a cross. All those rows of images on your standards are the appendages of crosses; those hangings on your standards and banners are the robes of crosses" – ibid
By the Sixth Synod of Constantinople (Canon 82), it was ordained that instead of the ancient symbol which had been the lamb, the figure of a man nailed to a cross should be represented. All this was confirmed by Pope Adrian I. (See Dupuis's Origin of Religious Belief, and Godfrey Higgins's Anacalypsis) - ibid
Shu, the Egyptian god of life. His arms are cruciform as he divides the heavens from the earth. He was the original "Crucified Savior." This god was based on the Aryan (Irish) Esus who was depicted in a similar fashion. The name Shu turns up in the Hebrew Joshua, which becomes Yeshua, the Hebrew rendition of Jeshua or Jesus. This is comprehendible once we realize that the original Jews or Judites were Druids. It is Druidic or Aryan gods and ways that were adopted by Eastern races and nations. Shu was known as "the firstborn" and "the Lion." Jesus was known as the "Lion of Judah." Esoterically, this simply means "Jesus of the Judites or Druids," and not "Jesus the Jew," as we would normally conceive. In fact, the Welsh title for the Druids is Shaau, Suw, or Shew. This is where the modern name "Shaw" originates. Shu is equivalent with the Christian "Holy Spirit."
Shu is one of the few male Egyptian gods to be shown with a human face. He was a member of the Ennead, or nine original creator gods. This Ennead appears in the Old Testament as the Elohim. Shu was part of the trinity of creator gods that included Atum, his father, and Tefnut, his sister. He symbolized the element Air (Holy Spirit) and the space between heaven and earth. He is commonly depicted with his arms raised or spread in the shape of a cross. In pre-Christian times, the crucified god was himself the cross. He was the "quartered one." (Atum, the most ancient androgynous god, is the origin of the Biblical Adam.)
Jesus makes the sign of Shu, the "crucified one" of Egypt.

This image of the Vishnu (the second god of the Vedic or Aryan Trinity), was originally featured in Edward Moore's definitive book entitled Hindu Pantheon, of 1810. The image was, however, subsequently removed from the first edition due to the controversy it caused in Victorian society. Here for more.
Who Were the Canaanites?
Despite the long regnant model that the Canaanites and Israelites were people of fundamentally different culture, archaeological data now casts doubt on this view. The material culture of the region exhibits numerous common points between Israelites and Canaanites in the Iron I period (ca. 1200–1000 BC). The record would suggest that the Israelite culture largely overlapped with and derived from Canaanite culture... In short, Israelite culture was largely Canaanite in nature. Given the information available, one cannot maintain a radical cultural separation between Canaanites and Israelites for the Iron I period - Mark Smith (The Early History of God: Yahweh and Other Deities of Ancient Israel)
In Appendix Seventeen, we deal with the problem of words and names and how they have suffered at the hands of mythmongers and deceivers. Here we seek to emphasize the deception that concerns the words Canaan and Canaanite. Officially, the name Canaan denotes a geographical location and a person, namely, the grandson of Noah. This so-called Canaan is, by way of his own son Sidon, allegedly the father of many tribes, namely, the Jebusites, Hivites, Arkites, Girgashites, Zemarites, Amorites, Sinites, Arvadites, and Hamathites. One obscure legend decleres Canaan to be the father of the Black-skinned nations of Africa, such as the Sudanese and Nubians.
As to place, Canaan defines a region that encompasses today's Israel, Palestine and Lebanon, as well as part of Jordan, Syria, and north-western Egypt. In other words, after the sixth century BC, the land of Canaan was renamed Judea, and then, after the arrival of the Romans, the name was changed again to Palestine. In ancient accounts the word is usually spelled with a "K," as in "Kana" or "Kanan." Like the words Kohen and Cain, it means "serpent priest." We recognize this as a nomen denoting the ancient Aryan elders. The land of Canaan has long been associated with the ancient Phoenicians or Acadians, a ground that, in our estimation, originated in the Western hemisphere.
Before the time of the so-called Israelites, Canaan was part of the Akkadian Empire (circa 2300 BC). It was also home to the Amarru, Martu, or Amorites. Later it was home to the Hurrians. The place was also visited and frequented by Tyrians and Philistines. By the second millennium BC, Canaan fell to the Egyptians, although during the reign of the Hyksos Kings (Seventeenth Dynasty), it was divided into districts ruled over by semi-independent governors.
The Hebrew patriarch Abraham and his wife Sarah allegedly entered into the land of Canaan at the direction of the Lord. They entered the land from outside of it, and took it for their inheritance.
Get out of your country, from your family and from your father's house, to a land that I will show you - (Genesis 12:1)
Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, "Command the children of Israel, and say to them: `When you come into the land of Canaan, this is the land that shall fall to you as an inheritance" - (Numbers 34:1-2)
Below is a map of the Middle East with the Biblical names for the various adjoining regions. The red spot indicates Canaan and the green spot indicates a place known as Ophir. Interestingly, like Canaan, the term Ophir (from oph) also means "serpent." (Here for more on Ophir.)
Things become rather complicated when we discover that the term Canaanite, as it has been used in the Bible, may be misattributed. It may not refer to a people located in the region shown on the map above, and, furthermore, may not even refer to the region shown. In other words, as we've shown in Appendix Seventeen, it is likely that this ancient term, referring to the Serpent Priests and their knowledge, was, like so many terms and titles, appropriated by the mythmongers and deliberately misconstrued.
In his work entitled The Origins of Biblical Monotheism: Israel's Polytheistic Background and the Ugaritic Texts, Mark S. Smith explains the the nature of the main problems besetting students of Canaanite history:
Despite the widespread scholarly use of the term “Canaanite,” I want to warn readers that I have largely avoided it...It is a misleading term that often clouds analysis. In the current scholarly environment, it is impossible to escape the debate over the relations between “Canaanite,” “Ugaritic,” and “Israelite,” as well as “Amorite.” The labels “Ugaritic” and “Canaanite” have been a matter of discussion since the discovery of the Ugaritic texts. In the 1960s, A. Rainey argued that Ugaritic is not Canaanite, because one Ugaritic text refers to a Canaanite with other foreigners, specifically an Egyptian and someone from Ash. Rainey also cites an Akkadian text from the site of Ugarit that refers to “the sons of Ugarit” and “the sons of Canaan.” Following Rainey’s lead, D. R. Hillers has suggested that the Ugaritic texts cannot be used to establish a Canaanite culture with which to compare developments in Israel. The denial of the equation of Ugaritic and Canaanite is correct, strictly speaking, but on the basis of linguistic criteria it is possible to defend a strong relationship between the two...Preferring the term “West Semitic” to “Canaanite,”
Smith continues to write on the problem, getting to the crux of the issue in the following passages:
N. P. Lemche goes farther than Rainey or Hillers. He disputes Rainey’s arguments that Ugarit was not part of Canaan. According to Lemche, one letter from the king of Tyre (EA 151) includes Ugarit in the land of Canaan; yet Rainey has seriously questioned this interpretation. There is the further issue of the historical significance of the term “Canaanite.” Lemche argues that “Canaanite” never appears in records used by “Canaanites” themselves: “to the scribe of ancient Western Asia ‘Canaanite’ always designated a person who did not belong to the scribe’s own society or state, while Canaan was considered to be a country different from his own.”
Lemche sees the biblical use “Canaanite” as an artificial construct largely deriving from the postexilic period. Lemche takes the conflicting descriptions of Canaanites in biblical and other Near Eastern texts as evidence that no such people or culture existed. In effect, Lemche relies on an argument from silence. Moreover, Lemche claims: “The Canaanites of the ancient Near East did not know that they were themselves Canaanites.”However, it seems odd to suppose that foreign courts from Egypt to Hatti to Mesopotamia used the term “Canaanite,” but the people whom others designated with this term never knew themselves by it. Perhaps this term did not function as the primary self-designation of people from “Canaan” (perhaps their individual clan units, cities, towns, or sub-regions were the primary self designations)
What the Artists Reveal
Baptism was not known among so-called "Jews." It was, however, known to Amenists, Druids and other ancient adepts. Washing or bathing in the sacred river was primarily associated with the goddess tradition and was a feminine initiation rite. For example Hera, the consort of Zeus and supreme goddess of the Greeks, bathed herself yearly in a river in order to restore her purity or divine "virginity."
The artist depicts the dove, river, and tree. On the right stand three figures. The number three represents the Druids. The artist knew what most Christians are not meant to know about their all too pagan religion. The river may represent the constellation Eridanus. It may also represent the Milky Way that runs between Gemini and Sagittarius. In this case, Jesus and John would represent the "Twins" of Gemini.
For washing in the channel through which the heathen are initiated into some sacred rite - of some notorious Isis or Mithras. The gods themselves likewise they honor by washing - Tertullian (On Baptism)
The use of lustral water is found among the Babylonians, Assyrians, Egyptians, Greeks, Romans, and others - Catholic Encyclopedia (Baptism Entry)
...all religious ceremonies of Pharaonic times, whether performed on behalf of a deity, a deceased noble, or the living king, were prefaced by some act of ritual cleansing - Dr. Richard A. Gabriel (Gods of the Fathers)
Note the following two cards from the Tarot's Major Arcana. The card on the left represents the sign of Sagittarius. The card on the right represents Aquarius. In each image the figures have one foot on land and one foot in water. (Compare this to the figure of Christ in the painting above.) The figures below represent Sagittarius and Aquarius. The former sign comes after the water sign of Scorpio and before the Earth sign of Capricorn. The latter sign comes after the Earth sign of Capricorn and before the Water sign of Pisces. The artist has subtextually referenced the astrological position of the two signs in an idiosyncratic manner. In other words, the images are laced with occult facts discernable only to initiates of the mystery traditions. The situation is no different when it comes to Judeo-Christian iconography and scripture.
The Madonna, by Sandro Botticelli. Note how the youthful John the Baptist gazes out toward the viewer. His arms are suggestively crossed on his breast in the manner of Egyptian gods and pharaohs. This is no surprise, once we understand that John the Baptizer was based on Anubis the Baptizer. As authors such as Picknett and Prince have discovered, it is John the Baptist who was the prophet chosen as tutelary master by secret societies such as the Freemasons and Knights Templar. This is the reason why many Renaissance artists (such as Botticelli in this instance) portrayed John holding the cross, not Jesus. (For more on the Jesus and John controversy, refer to Templar Revelation, by Picknett and Prince, and Volume Two of The Irish Origins of Civilization.)
Anubis is also the messenger of the gods, equivalent to the Greek god Hermes or Mercury, the counterpart of Egyptian lunar god Thoth...Moreover, like Those, whose emblem is the Tau or T, Anubis is "never without a cross," specifically the life-giving ankh, one of the holiest symbols in Egyptian religion..."The cross with a handle which Tot holds in his hand was none other than the monogram of his name" - D. M. Murdock (Christ in Egypt)
...in the version by Church father Hippolytus...the Aeon Horus is called by his "primary title," Stauros, meaning "cross." Hence, in ancient times - during the second century, precisely when Christianity was finding its footing - there existed in Egypt the concept of Horus as the Cross personified - ibid
The pillars seen in front of large buildings represent trees. The pilasters on top of many columns frequently bear floral motifs. On the right, we see Arcanum II of the Tarot's Major Arcana. The pillars bear the letters "J" and "B," which stand for Jakin (Jachin) and Boaz. The columns also bear floral motifs. The black and white coloring represents the banks of the Nile. On one bank, the black desert, on the other, the white desert. These two banks are also represented by the numeral of this card - II. The Priestess depicted represents Isis, the goddess associated with the Nile. Note how her blue dress flows like water. Behind Isis is the tree of life, bearing pomegranates. These fruits symbolize the "underworld," and the sacred mysteries protected by the body of the goddess. In the baptism painting above, we see the tree and the sacred river. Trees were sacred to the Arya, or Druids, and so was the river. Therefore, whenever we encounter trees and rivers in Jewish, Christian , or Masonic iconography, we understand that they are plagiarized and cannibalized motifs.
The name of the Canaanite goddess Asteroth means "sacred tree," although this translation is redundant because all trees were sacred to the ancient peoples of the Near East and Europa - John Lamb Lash (Not in His Image)
“The groves were God’s first temples,” says Bryant. The groves, too, were among man’s first gods...Not only the Druids of Britain, but the Greeks, and the Semitic races of Asia were worshipers of trees. The giant oaks and the symmetrical evergreens were gods...”The worship of trees,” says Soury, “only disappeared in Syria at a very late date...The largest and tallest trees, and the evergreen ones, were adored as gods – John E. Remsberg (The Christ)
In Ireland certain very famous trees, usually yew trees, were closely connected with the tribes in whose territory they stood. They were held as sacred, and served as tribal meeting places. This custom was pagan in origin, but the trees continued to be held in reverence in Christian times. When Christianity was introduced, pagan sacred sites were often converted into Christian sacred sites – Alexander Stewart (A Highland Parish or the History of Fortingall, 1928)
In the religious history of the Aryan race in Europe the worship of trees has played an important part. Nothing could be more natural...From an examination of the Teutonic words for “temple” Grimm has made it probable that amongst the Germans the oldest sanctuaries were natural woods...tree worship is well attested for all the great European families of the Aryan stock – Sir James George Frazer (The Golden Bough, 1922)
Christ with solar halo and book. He makes the sign of the goat. The raised two fingers originally symbolized the "horned one." This did not signify something evil. It simply denoted the great stag god Herne. (Note the similarity between the words "horned" and "honoured.") Place names such as Cadiz, Aegean, Golgotha, and Giza, mean "Place of the Goats" or more correctly "Goths," that is the Arya from the West. Jesus was based on the Gothic or Irish Iesa (Esa). Other European gods such as Orpheus, Dionysus, and Bacchus, were based on this Western antetype.
The Adoration, by Domenico Ghirlandaio. The figure of the Virgin Mary represents the night sky. The artist suggests the round of the zodiac by the circular hem of the Madonna’s cloak. Christ is the sun born in the sign of Virgo, the Virgin. Joseph, the ”Carpenter” looks up toward the heavens. He is contemplating the signs and represents the ancient gnosis suppressed by the Church of Rome. The three animals present represent signs of the zodiac. The bull represents Taurus (and the Amenists and Druids), the ass represents Cancer; the lamb represents Aries (and the Atonists). The arched portal on the left of the canvas cryptically signifies Druidism. The word druid means "doorway" or "portal." It gives our modern "door." Indeed, this is what the words pontifex (signifying the pope) and cardinal also mean. The fact that one of the three visitors holds a lamb indicates that they are members of the Solar Cult, and probably Atonists. The blatant Romanesque motifs (of archway, Corinthian pillars, fallen column, and marble altar) were added by the artist to signify where the Bible story depicted was truly composed. It was not in Judea or Galilee.
Many Medieval and Renaissance paintings depicting events from the scriptures feature a mount or high place in the background. This artist has chosen to place the mount centrally on his canvas. This motif is purely Druidic, as is the motif of the sacred garden or, more correctly, grove.
This artist has placed the luminaries (the sun and moon) on either side of the crucifix. This brings out the Astro-Theological elements in the story of the crucifixion. Could the four attendees at the foot of the cross then represent the four cardinal points of the zodiac? Could the strange letters above Christ's head be the first letters for Iammim, Nour, Ruach, and Ibeshah, or Fire, Water, Air, and Earth? Is Jesus the fifth element?

The Crucifixion, by Signorelli. A red-haired Mary Magdalene mourns at the foot of the cross on Skull Hill. A mound and and a portal stand in the background. A skull lies at the foot of the cross. The skull denotes the Merovingians, Templars, Cistercians, and Culdeans, and hints to the viewer that the painting contains esoteric motifs understandable only to those men initiated into the Mysteries. Mary's distinctive red hair connotes her Western origins as well as the Western origins of Biblical lore. Red hair was the distinguishing mark of Scythians and Merovingians. The Bible's convoluted texts were composed by scribes in the pay of the Merovingians and Templars, that is, of the Atonists.
The Galatians of the New Testament were blond, blue-eyed Celts. An apocryphal legend claims that John the Baptist was a Celt, and Mary Magdalene was Circassian, half Celtic, half Jewish - John Lamb Lash (Not in His Image)
The ever-important Isis was in fact one of these goddesses known by the title Meri/Mery...That goddesses were beloved or Mery is obvious from an enigmatic spell...that invokes "the Goddess greatly beloved with red hair" or "Her who is greatly beloved, the red-haired" - D. M. Murdock (Jesus in Egypt)
Melchizedek: As with so many Biblical characters (Enoch, Abraham, Noah, David, Solomon, Joseph of Arimathea, and Jesus, and so on), he was based on the archetype of the Druid. Note the artist's incorporation of the tree and portal, which cryptically refer to Amenism and Druidism. Melchizedek is traditionally connected to the Tribe of Shem, which was made up of fair-skinned types. The word Shem is, however, probably a poor rendition of Khem, meaning Egypt, or of Shmn, meaning Hermopolis, the great city in Egypt. We believe Melchizedek, as he appears in the Bible, truly signifies Pharaoh Akhenaton, king of the Atonists. It might even signify Aton himself. As such, it serves the same purpose as the name Moses. And just as it is clear that there was no such man as Moses, as portrayed in the Old Testament stories, so we can assume there was no such entity as Melchizedek, as the Bible portrays him. Both fictive characters serve as place-holders for another who is not named. Those initiated into the mysteries, the higher members of the Church and the secret societies, know who is signified by these, and other, pseudonyms. In the painting, the figure of Melchizedek bears a solar halo and holds what appears to be a sun symbol, but which is, according to the Bible, an offering of bread. Abel holds the lamb which symbolizes Aries, the sign most sacred to Atonists. The central table is designed to appear like a cube. It is the ashlar, or altar, of Masonry. The ninety-degree "rules" at the base of the "table" also signify the Masonic fraternities.

Hiram Abiff (Builder of Solomon's Temple)
Druidism itself was known in ancient Britain as "Y Maen" - the stone religion, or "The Stone Kingdom." Let us also remember that Zion also means "Stone;" Mount Zion is "the mount of stone" - Fredrick Haberman
Who or What was Hiram?
As we have mentioned above, the scriptures are replete with Druidic leitmotifs. If anything makes such texts "holy," it is the plagiarized elements belonging to the noble elders of old. Naturally, without a study of how the Druidic symbolic motifs were cannibalized and finally incorporated into the Christian canon, one is sure to misunderstand our theory concerning the dark origins of Judeo-Christianity and Masonry. However, in our opinion, the symbolism serves to tell the tale and to expose the level of perfidy of these wholly corrupt institutions.
One Druidic trope concerns the famous Old Testament character referred to as Hiram Abiff. This character also plays a very prominent role in Freemasonry. He has been accepted by Jews, Christians, and Masons, as one of their most illustrious spiritual ancestors. Allegedly, he was the builder of the Temple of Solomon.
As to so-called Druidical monuments, no argument can be drawn thence, as to the primary seat of this mysticism, since they are to be seen nearly all over the world – James Bonwick (Irish Druids and Old Irish Religions, 1894)
Newgrange (in Ireland) is the oldest scientific instrument in the world still functioning. It predates Stonehenge and the Pyramids, and stands as one of the world’s most ancient monuments. It is quite likely it will still be functioning when our own scientific instruments have turned to dust – Martin Brennan (Lecture on Newgrange Tumulus)
The earliest people inhabiting Celtic territory in the West of Europe of whom we have any distinct knowledge are a race without name or known history, but by their sepulchral monuments, of which so many still exist, we can learn a great deal about them. They were the so-called Megalithic People, [from Greek megas, great and lithos, a stone] the builders of dolmens, cromlechs, and chambered tumuli, of which more than three thousand have been counted in France alone. Dolmens are found from Scandinavia southwards, all down the western lands of Europe to the Straits of Gibraltar, and round by the Mediterranean coast of Spain. They occur in some of the western islands of the Mediterranean, and are found in Greece, where, in Mycenae, an ancient dolmen yet stands beside the magnificent burial-chamber of the Atreidae. Roughly, if we draw a line from the mouth of the Rhone northward to Varanger Fiord, one may say that, except for a few Mediterranean examples, all the dolmens in Europe lie to the west of that line. To the east none are found till we come into Asia. But they cross the Straits of Gibraltar, and are found all along the North African littoral, and thence eastwards through Arabia, India, and as far as Japan - T. W. Rolleston (Myths and Legends of the Celtic Race, 1911)
Of course, we refute the idea that such a temple existed, at least as the Testaments portray it. We are more inclined to agree with those investigators who speculate the temple to have been the great pyramid at Giza. We stress, however, that the term "Solomon" was the title for the highest class of solar priests and, like Moses, Aaron, David, Joshua, and Jesus, etc, it was bestowed upon several individuals. It denoted both the physical sun and spiritual enlightenment. It denoted men who were illumined and illustrious. And so, Astro-Theologically speaking, the so-called "Temple of Solomon" was simply the zodiac, the place of "many mansions." We believe the mythmongers used many cover terms for the zodiac. Here are a few that were used as references to the heavenly temple:
Abode of the Most High Tabernacle New Jerusalem Nazareth Bethlehem Hall of Judges Kingdom of God Tent of God Flocks by Night Aeons / Ages Seasons
Mansions Citadel Seven Churches Mount of Olives Mount of Glory City of David Gates Celestial City Throne of the Elect Mount Zion
Seat of Judgment Wilderness Bottomless Pit Heaven or Hell Grotto Oracle Tomb Labyrinth
If the Temple was so spectacular and so wealthy, why did Herodotus not bother to go there? Why did the knowledge seeking Alexander the Great when in the area, not bother to go there, even for the plunder? - Ernest Busenbark (Symbols, Sex and the Stars)
Clearly, Hiram was the sun and not an individual per se. Additionally, the term was most probably used as a title for those chief astrologers and astronomers whose temple was the heavenly zodiac. Earthly shrines and temples were geographically and geometrically based upon the various constellations and luminaries in the zodiac, and so it is not at all far-fetched to suppose the Temple of Solomon to be that which cosmic one which encircled the heavens above men's heads, and in which the "gods" resided. Elements found in the story of the life and death of Hiram lead us to believe the story to be largely Astro-Theological in nature.
...this whole affair of which we speak and preach, and which is called Gospel, has no reference at all to any person that ever existed, or events that ever occurred upon earth, but it is astronomical – Rev. Robert Taylor (The Devil’s Pulpit)
…King of Heaven, prince of Creation, sun of the eastern sky who appeared both to the dead in Hades and to the mortals upon earth he, the only true Helios, arose for us out of the highest summits of Heaven - Melito of Sardis (Second Century Theologian)
The name Hiram Abiff has interesting etymological origins. Abiff may derive from Abi, meaning "master," "father," or "elder." According to Philip Gardner, the word Hiram may derive from Hir, meaning "head," or "exalted," and Am, meaning "people." In this instance the name would be similar in meaning to Abraham, which can be rendered Ab Hir Am, meaning "Father Head of the People." It may also derive from Ahi Ram, meaning "Head Snake" or "Exalted Serpent." In this instance it would be similar in meaning to Pendragon, meaning "Head of the Dragons."
There is also evidence indicating that the term "Hiram" was used by the Bible's mythmongers to obliquely refer to the Druids or, more specifically, to their highest degreed elder, the grand master of building, navigation, astronomy, language, and magic. It is acknowledged by historians and Masonic writers that Hiram was of the "Phoenician" race. And since the Phoenicians (or more correctly the Arcadians) were elders from the British Isles, it follows that Hiram the Elder, if he existed, was a member of the Arya. It implies, more correctly, that "Hiram Abi" was yet another title referring to the chief among the Arya or Druids. Given the superb temples which fill Egypt, most of them erected by Amenists, we can certainly conclude that there was, among the people and their leaders, the deepest awe and respect for the master architects.
The Druids taught the existence of one god, to whom they gave a name "Be' al," which Celtic antiquaries tell us means "the life of everything," or "the source of all beings," and which seems to have affinity with the Phoenician Baal. What renders this affinity more striking is that the Druids as well as the Phoenicians identified this, their supreme deity, with the Sun - Thomas Bulfinch (Bulfinch's Mythology, Chapter XLI)
The Druids had also their high places, which were large stones or piles of stones on the summits of hills. These were called Cairns, and were used in the worship of the deity under the symbol of the sun - ibid
...the Roman writers admit that "they paid much attention to the order and laws of nature, and investigated and taught to the youth under their charge many things concerning the stars and their motions, the size of the world and the lands, and concerning the might and power of the immortal gods - ibid
…in the very oldest monuments of the Druids, we have the circle of stones, in the number 12, the signs in the circle - signs of the zodiacal circle, with the arch of heaven for the cupola; and, in fact, the divisions of the heavens marked in a great variety of ways - Godfrey Higgins (Anacalypsis)
The Kelts placed pillars on the tops of their hills, many of which are still visible. The pillars were dedicated to the Sun-god, Bal, or Bel, identical with Hu or Huan of Wales, and with Aedh...Many upright stones, pillars and uncut monoliths are to be seen in India...Bringing the stone, often from a great distance, sometimes from the Himalayas, no doubt on account of their great sanctity...The stones are usually roughly cut, like those which one sees so frequently standing in fields in Wales and Cornwall - Dorothea Chaplain (Matter, Myth, and Spirit or Keltic and Hindu Links)
Repeated references are made in the Bible to phallic idols, images, and worship, but they have been so thoroughly disguised in translation that they give the average reader no understanding of the beliefs and practices to which they refer. Many of the names of people and places mentioned also have a phallic significance, which is not revealed in the standard Bible Concordances - Ernest Busenbark (Symbols, Sex and the Stars)
In short, if a Hiram existed, we can surmise that he was, given the accounts about him, certainly one of the following:
A Phoenician A Scythian A Chaldean A Druid
In every case (given the researches of this author, and of others in the last decade and a half) Hiram's ancestry would have been Irish. In every case he would have been one of the Arya. He would, therefore, have been a member of the Serpent Brotherhood, which held the secrets of geometry, geomancy, astronomy, and temple design, and so on. Indeed, the Bible, in it's characteristically veiled manner, lets us know that this was the case. 2 Chronicles (2:11-14) tells us that Hiram was a member of the Tribe of Dan. The Tribe's emblem was the serpent. Author Barbara Walker emphasizes the Western origin of the Danites:
Writers of the Old Testament disliked the Danites, whom they called serpents (Genesis 49:17). Nevertheless, they adopted Dani-El or Daniel, a Phoenician god of divination, and transformed him into a Hebrew prophet. His magic powers were like those of the Danites emanating from the Goddess Dana and her sacred serpents…Daniel was not a personal name but a title, like the Celtic one - (The Woman’s Encyclopedia of Myths and Secrets)
Her point, and ours, is strengthened by Philip Gardiner, author of the book Gnosis: The Secret of Solomon’s Temple Revealed. In Gardiner's work we find intriguing facts about Hiram and the Irish (or Aryan) connection. The most intriguing reference concerns Hiram and the symbol of the serpent. The serpent was the symbol of the ancient Dragon Court and of the Irish Druids (the Adders, Naddreds, or Pendragons, etc). It also served as the universal symbol for wisdom and royalty.
There are more real links between Hiram and the serpent. For instance, we noted above that he was of the Tribe of Naphtali. The standard of the Tribe of Naphtali, according to Jewish tradition, is a serpent or basilisk and this could have come from Egyptian origins, as Jewish tradition states that Naphtali was the brother of Joseph, chosen to represent the family to Pharaoh – Philip Gardiner (Gnosis: The Secret of Solomon’s Temple Revealed)
…Hiram is said to be a son of the Tribe of Dan and even the tribe of Dan had an emblem, which was amazingly also the serpent, this time with a horse – ibid
According to Rabbinical teaching the prefabrication of the Temple was performed by the Shamir, a giant worm or serpent that could cut stones (incidentally worm means serpent). Not dissimilar to Norse and Celtic beliefs where Valhalla and Camelot were built with the fire of the dragon and in China where building is aided by the serpent energy – ibid
This is what the Bible has to say about Hiram Abiff:
And now I have sent a skillful man, endowed with understanding, Huram my master craftsman, (the son of a woman of the daughters of Dan, and his father was a man of Tyre), skilled to work in gold and silver, bronze and iron, stone and wood, purple and blue, fine linen and crimson, and to make any engraving and to accomplish any plan which may be given to him, with your skillful men and with the skilful men of my lord David your father – (2 Chronicles2:13-14)
Hiram was referred to as a "widow's son." This anecdote refers to the heavens. In this case, Hiram would be the sun and the widow, his mother, would be the supreme goddess of heaven, variously known as Apt, Taurt, Nuith, Isis, etc. Additionally, the term "widow" can refer to the Irish goddess Eri, and in this case it would strengthen our theory of the Irish symbolism that has been employed in the story of Hiram Abiff.
Hiram is described in the Book of Chronicles as - the son of a woman of the daughters of Dan. Christians will say this refers to the Israelite Tribe of Dan. But we might ask if there is there something more to this term Dan? Additionally, was there some significance to the Tribe of Dan having a serpent for their clan symbol? We think there is indeed a good reason, one which has to do with Druidism. Not only are the names of the twelve so-called Tribes of Israel Irish names, but the various emblems of the tribes originate with Druidism. The root dan (and related roots such as don, dona, adon, and dun, etc) can, for instance, be found throughout the world. It is particularly conspicuous in regions frequented by "Celts." It originates with Danu, a prehistoric Irish deity and one of the most prominent goddesses known. Her name can also be rendered Anu, or Ana. In this form the name turns up among the Babylonians and Sumerians. The name connotes the heavens. This is one reason why the serpent was a symbol for the Danites. The serpent is Draco of the zodiac. Draco figuratively guards the northernmost stars, those considered most sacred to ancient astrologers. The great cosmic serpent was, however, a symbol for the female. The Egyptian hieroglyph denoting woman was a serpent. In light of this, there can be little doubt that the Danites, referred to as Israelites, were really astrologers, that is, Arya.
Hiram is said to have hailed from the great Phoenician city of Tyre. But this city bears an Irish name. Tyre and Tara both derive from the name of Eri. And, as we stated above, Eri's name was the origin of the name Ireland. Eri is the Hera of the Greeks. Her name is still preserved in words such as terra and terrestrial, denoting the earth.
Hiram and Osiris
From the midst of chaos was born Osiris, and at his birth a voice was heard proclaiming − "The ruler of all the earth is born"...Osiris traveled over the whole world, and civilized its inhabitants, and taught them the art of agriculture. But on his return to Egypt the jealous Typhon laid a stratagem for him, and in the midst of a banquet had him shut up in a chest which exactly fitted his body. He was nailed down in his prison, which cast into the Nile floated down to the sea - W. Winwood Reade (The Veil of Isis, or Mysteries of the Druids, 1861)
Hiram has also been associated with Osiris. A comparison of the myths of these two figures reveals many similarities:
Both went to foreign lands to share their knowledge of arts and sciences
In both legends there is a precious thing possessed: Hiram has the secret word; Osiris has the kingdom
In both legends there is a wicked conspiracy by evil men to seize the precious thing
In both legends there is a struggle and a murder of the virtuous leader
Both are murdered by their brothers (Osiris by Typhon; Hiram by Jubelum, his brother Mason)
Both bodies are buried hastily, with the intention of a later, deliberate burial
Locations of the bodies are both marked by Acacia at the head
In both legends, there are two separate searches for the bodies
In both legends there is a loss of something precious: in Hiram's death, the secret word is lost; in Osiris' death, the phallus is lost
In both there is a substitution for the precious thing that has been lost; concerning Hiram it is the substitute for the secret word; concerning Osiris it is the substitute phallus.

The name Osiris derives from the Egyptian Ausares, which can be more correctly rendered Asari or As Ari. In this instance we see the all important phoneme ari, denoting the Arya. The syllable as means "gods" in Nordic tongues. (See Aesir, Asa, and Asgard, etc.) The name Asari, therefore, means "god of the Arya." The worship of Osiris (god of the Amenists and of the Underworld) was, we believe, transported to Egypt from the West in prehistoric times. The similarities between Osiris and the Irish fertility gods is uncanny.
It is enough to find Asar, Asari, names of Osiris at Gizeh. The same name Movers finds in Phoenicia - Samuel F. Dunlop (The Ghebers of Hebron)
The roots As, Asa, Ash, or Azar, etc, signifying the gods, can also be found in Ashera, the name of the consort of Jehovah (and who was simply a version of Astarte the consort of Bel.) Ashera turns up in another guise in early books of the Old Testament as Sarah, the wife of Abraham, who, after her arrival in Egypt, weds an unnamed Pharaoh. The root is found in the name Azar, which was the Assyrian name for Mars. It can be found in the place names Assryia, Syria, Ash, as well as Asan, believed to have been located between Libnah and Asdod in ancient Judah. It can be found in the place name Askalon, which was a fertile wooded province in Karu, the land of the ancient Philistines.
Hiram, Hermes, and Herne Since vowels were absent in most ancient writings (Egyptian, Hebrew, Greek, etc), the word Hiram can be rendered HRM. This, in turn, can be re-rendered HERMES.
In this permutation, the term refers to secret knowledge and the Hermetic Tradition. The name of Hermes, however, is a derivation of the Irish Herne. Herne, also known as Cernunnos, Nikor, or as the Green Man, was the stag-horned forest god. He was seen depicted (like Orpheus and Krishna) sitting tranquilly among the forest animals. Herne was also depicted holding a circlet in one hand and a serpent in another. (As we saw above, the serpent features prominently in the story of Hiram Abiff). The circlet and serpent motif connotes the number 10, now known as ten.
When the Greek letters of the name Hermes are added, we get 343, which equals 10. If the name Hiram connotes the mysteries of the number ten, then Abiff, meaning "Father" or "Elder," simply implies that the number ten was considered the "Father Number." Indeed, the ancient architects and geometrists of Egypt, Greece, and Ireland, held the number in high esteem. Ten was a most sacred number.
Primordial gods (such as Atum Ra) and archetypal figures (such as Adam) were esoterically associated with the number ten. In English numerology, the letters of ATUM (1, 2, 3, 4) add to 10. This is the same for the letters of the name ADAM (1, 4, 1, 4). The human hands figuratively denote 1414 - that is one thumb and four fingers, on each hand - ergo 1414 (or 10). Ergo, the numerological testament proclaims each and every man to be an "Adam."
In their book entitled The Hiram Key,Masonic authors Christopher Knight and Robert Lomas contend that Hiram Abiff was Pharaoh Seqenenre Tao II, of Egypt's seventeenth dynasty. (Click here for more on this pharaoh).
Jacques de Molay. Grand Master of the French Knights Templar during the fourteenth century. He was allegedly condemned to death as a heretic by King Philip IV. Like most of the Templar nobility, he had visited England and was probably educated by Culdean Monks from Ireland. Masonic lore tells us that he bore the title "Hiram Abiff," which lends credence to our contention that (like David and Solomon, etc) Hiram Abiff was indeed a title and not a personal name.
Additional Symbolic Examples The god Mercury, who was associated with the language and the arts of communication, was originally the Irish god known as Ogma, the son of the supreme Irish goddess Brigid. Mercury was the Roman rendition of the Hellenistic Hermes, who was based on Thoth of the Egyptians, and Herne of the Irish. Thoth's name can also be rendered as Tut or Taut, and his name is close to the English word truth.
Words such as tote (to calculate) taught, throat, talk, and thought, etc, come from this god's name. Herne (also known as Cernunnos or Nikor) was the forest god of the ancient Druids. Herne is also a prototype of the Hindu Shiva (or Pashupati). Ogma's name is pronounced auma, or as a long-sounding aum. This is close to the Sanskrit sacred phoneme AUM. One of Ogma's titles was "the Honey Mouth."
He was also the god of strength. To this day the ancient Irish alphabet is known as the ogham. Versions of the ogham have been found as far off as America and Bosnia, although the evidence has been carefully covered up.
The sacred Ogham alphabet of the Druids. (For more information, see Volume One, Chapter 14, entitled The Lost Language of the Ancients.)
They worship chiefly the god Mercury; of him there are many symbols, and they regard him as the inventor of all the arts, as the guide of travelers, and as possessing great influence over bargains and commerce. After him they worship Apollo and Mars, Jupiter and Minerva. About these they hold much the same beliefs as other nations. Apollo heals diseases, Minerva teaches the elements of industry and the arts, Jupiter rules over the heavens, Mars directs war...All the Gauls assert that they are descended from Dispater, their progenitor - Julius Caesar (on the religion of the Irish and Druids, from: de Bell. Gall. vi. 17, 18)
The Kabala of the Jews is but the distorted echo of the Secret Doctrine of the Chaldeans - Madame Helena Blavatsky
The sacred alphabet, together with the veneration of the sacred tree, reached the Orient and, after adaptation, the alphabet became the foundation of the Phoenician and Hebrew scripts. Hebrew is related to Gaelic, and is the "lost" alphabet of the Egyptians. It possessed 22 letters and 5 vowels. These secrets, concerning the magical operations of these letters, was transmitted in the mystery schools of old. Today, it has been discovered that these 22 letters denote the 22 pathways on the Kabalistic Tree of Life. The Kabala, and its related disciplines, comes not from the Israelites but from the Druids. It was they who would have used this pagan image (of a tree) and who would have likened the journey of mental and spiritual enlightenment to the paths or branches of a tree. This symbolism does not originate with those races taking the credit for it today. Top Jewish rabbis and scholars have deftly concealed their own puzzlement concerning the Kabala and why it is part of their rabbinical canon. They take credit for it and pretend that they understand it, but they do not know its origins or how it really came into their possession. It did so from their association with the Egyptian Solar Cult of Aton.
Like many Egyptian idioms and teachings the Kabala was absorbed by association. It is not a creation of the Old Testament Jews. Researcher Kieran Barry (although he is not concerned with the Irish or the Druids) offers compelling evidence to show that the Kabala was known to the Greeks before it was known to the Jews. What he does not realize is that it came to the Greeks by way of the Hermetic colleges themselves founded upon Druidic mystery traditions. Of all the modern researchers into this field, it was Robert Graves, Godfrey Higgins, Albert Churchward, and the great Gerald Massey, who understood the truth presented here concerning the Irish origins of the Kabala, the Tree of Life, and the sacred alphabets. The image of the living, organic Treeof Life was a pagan symbol that does not derive from the Levitical tradition.
It was a most ancient motif of ancient Caucasian tribes and it appears in the Scandinavian Viking tradition as Yggdrasil, the cosmic tree that has its roots in the underworld and its branches in the heavens, and which is demarked by seven major stages, in a similar way as we find in the chakra system. Around Yggdrasil coils the serpent, another symbol employed largely by the Irish and the Egyptians.
...we can see that the greater number of the peculiar features of this history existed in Egypt - the tree of life and knowledge, the serpent of Paradise, Eve thinking of appropriating divinity to herself, and in short Adam himself, are all there - M. Lefébure
One is filled with admiration, on penetrating into the Sanctuary of the Kabalah, at seeing a doctrine so logical, so simple, and at the same time so absolute. The necessary union of ideas and signs, the consecration of the most fundamental realities by the primitive characters; the Trinity of Words, Letters, and Numbers; a philosophy simple as the alphabet, profound and infinite as the Word; theorems more complete and luminous than those of Pythagoras; a theology summed up by counting on one's fingers; an Infinite which can be held in the hollow of an infant's hand; ten ciphers and twenty-two letters, a triangle, a square, and a circle - these are all the elements of the Kabalah. These are the elementary principles of the written Word, reflection of that spoken Word that created the world! - Albert Pike (Morals and Dogma)
The motif of the Tree of Life was known to the Egyptians, the Phoenicians, and the Irish Magi. As the Christian Christ hung on the tree, so did the great hero Odin ritually hang upon a great tree in order to self-initiate himself into the mysteries of life. The tree became a symbol of the royal couple, the king and queen, who were considered agents of the gods. On the plagiarization of ancient gnosis, Professor. L. A. Waddell wrote:
...the Hebrew rabbis who composed Genesis with its Garden of Eden and Creation of Man story, had manifestly helped themselves to the floating traditional history in late Babylon in respect to the oldest kings known to the ancient world, namely the kings of the First Aryan Dynasty. But not understanding it, they had travestied the historical facts and the noble character of the great King "Adam," by making "Adam" to be the first lowly "created" man, instead of the first man and superman - (Makers of Civilization in Race and History)
On the names of the angels and name of Israel, the learned scholar Logan Mitchell wrote:
...learned critics have shown that the Bible names of angels, such as Gabriel, Uriel, Raphael, Michael, Satan, etc., are purely Chaldean or Persian! And this is confirmed by the Talmud of Jerusalem, which says expressly that the Jews borrowed the names of the angels from the Babylonians. Even the name Israel is not a Hebrew but a Chaldee word, as was fully explained by Philo Judaeus, when on his embassy to the Emperor Caligula - (Religion in the Stars, or Mythology Unveiled, 1881)
The Number Three
Among the most amazing and important events of the Ptolemaic period was the establishment of the cult of the Egyptian Osiris trinity as the official religion of a state ruled by Macedonian Greeks with the result that the cult of Isis spread throughout the Mediterranean world becoming the most popular religion of the age. The cult of Isis, Osiris, and Horus was transmitted to Rome where, by the time of Christ, it had become the most popular religious faith of Romans, especially Roman soldiers - R. A. Gabriel (Jesus the Egyptian)
The number three was extremely important in the Shamanic tradition because it represented the harmonious median between conflicting polarities, such as ignorance and knowledge, or folly and wisdom, etc. Three represented the agents of harmony. The Druids understood that nature did not possess such vexatious dichotomies, but that the minds of men most certainly did. Duality was a phenomenon of consciousness, not of nature, even though a fragmented psyche may erroneously project that falsity, and then believe it to be the case.
...like the God of the Jews, of the Chaldees, of the Hindoos, and of the Christians, this Deity of the Druids had three attributes within himself, and each attribute was a god - W. Winwood Reade
In Welsh the word for three is tri, and that is the same in Sanskrit. The Irish Gaelic word for Trinity is Triquetra, which is similar to the Sanskrit word Trikuta, which means "Three Peaks." In Egypt, the hieroglyphic depicting three peaks or hills signified "foreigners," or travelers from distant lands.
Druidic Ireland was divided according to the hemispheres of consciousness. There were four main counties, with one administrative center making the fifth sacred province. This province was called Mide, (or Meath) which meant the middle place. The capital city Tara was situated there, as well as the great astronomical megaliths (Newgrange, Knowth, Dowth and other impressive geomantic sites). The Egyptian supreme goddess of balance and harmony was called Ma'at, and this word is of Gaelic origin. Ma'at is the great mother, the same type as Danu or Brigit. Her name meant "straight," "true," or "just." The hieroglyph denoting Ma'at also signified the mathematical formula one half (1 divided by 2).
The power of the Magi lay in their understanding and application of the properties of the Third Principle. Iesa, the third aspect of the Druidic Trinity, was their most venerated god. Iesa was the prototype of Jesus and he can also be linked to the Hindu god Shiva, the lord of deconstruction and renewal. This Third Principle turns up in the Christian canon as the Holy Spirit, the symbol of which is the dove.
...among the whole of them three classes more especially are held in distinguished veneration, the Bards, the Ovates, and the Druids. The Bards are chanters and poets. The Ovates are…physiologists. The Druids, in addition to physiology, practice ethic philosophy. They are deemed to be most upright, and, in consequence, to them are committed both public and private controversies, in as much that on some occasions they decide on battles and stop the combatants on the eve of engaging. These and others say that souls are immortal, and that the world is so too; yet that ultimately fire and water will prevail - Strabo (First Century Greek historian and geographer)
We find the archetype of threeness expressed throughout the esoteric Kabalistic doctrine, that was originally based on the teachings of the Druids. Druidic colleges employed tripartite divisions. The very Druidic Order was subdivided into three parts. And the Druidic Trinity (Bel, Taranis, Esus) was surely the archetype upon which all others were based.
Ancient Egyptian religion had from the earliest times displayed a natural inclination to the arrangement of its gods in groupings of threes, or "triads." Following the model of Osiris - Isis - Horus, the triad later took on a "familial" pattern of father-mother-child, and several cities worshipped their own particular variations on theme - Nicholas Reeves
Hebrew theology was divided into three distinct parts. The first was the law, the second was the soul of the law, and the third was the soul of the soul of the law. The law was taught to all the children of Israel; the Mishna, or the soul of the law, was revealed to the Rabbis and teachers; but the Qabalah, the soul of the soul of the law, was cunningly concealed, and only the highest initiates among the Jews were instructed in its secret principles - Manly Palmer Hall (The Secret Teachings of All Ages)
The Druids based their trinity on their observations and veneration of the heavens. Their three gods were personifications of the three stars of Orion's belt. The constellation of Orion has been revered throughout the ages from the earliest times.
More Esoteric Symbolism
The Shepherd's staff or crosier did not originate with Christianity. The staff held by Catholic bishops was originally common to the priests of the pagan sun god Mithras. The Church also borrowed the term "father" from a term used to address priests of the cult of Mithras. What is more, in Irish the word for "saint" (niamh) is akin to the word "heavens" (neamh). See Appendix Three for more on the cult of Mithras.

Christian monks successfully saw to it that such icons were destroyed.
...In my Celtic Druids I have shewn that the worship of Buddha is everywhere to be found - in Wales, Scotland, and Ireland. Hu, the great God of the Welsh, is called Buddwas; and they call their God Budd, the God of victory, the king who rises in light and ascends the sky - Godfrey Higgins (Anacalypsis)
Numerous analogies and correspondences with India are to be found in the Celtic and Celto-Iberian religion, which was familiar with the idea of reincarnation, a vegetarian diet, the tree cult and the swastika, a symbol that is found even today on the door-posts of Basque farmhouses. In the Musee Borely at Marseille there are two sitting stone figures, presumably cult idols, dated as originating in the second century BC...Although these figures are headless and believed by scholars to be Celto-Iberian gods, yet they are astonishingly similar to early Buddhist works of art, to bodhisattva sculptures characteristically sitting in the lotus position, with the brahmanic cord over the shoulder and bangles around the neck and upper arms and hands is also reminiscent of the mudras (gestures) in statues of the Buddha - Gruber and Kersten (The Original Jesus)
A "Jewish" menorah. From an illustration in the Cervera Bible of 1299 AD. We might ask where this symbol came from? It was originally Aryan and Druidic. It represented the three schools of Druidry (the Druids, the Ovates, and the Bards). Many other tribes and nations divided their priesthoods after the schemata laid down by the Western Arya.
The Hierophant is Arcanum Five of the Tarot. Despite the garb, the image connotes the Druidic priesthood that was subdivided into three schools. Note the staff in the hand of the figure. It has three horizontal bars. The figure wears a garment with three crosses. There are three tiers to his headdress. All trinities and triple pantheons derive from the observation and veneration of the constellation Orion.
An examination of Arcanum Five -The Hierophant - reveals that the central figure, a pope-like initiator, holds in his hand a wand with three horizontal bars. This strange non-Christian motif is of Druidic origins. It represents the three divisions of the Druidic Order. This fifth Arcanum is an oblique reference to the original Solar Church - the disseminator of sacred knowledge to the world. Subsequently, the Christian mythographers incorporated the number three, in their pontiff's tiara, and in the architectural layout of their churches and cathedrals, etc. And of course, it was incorporated into dogma as heaven, purgatory and hell, and in the sublime, but rather obscure trinity of God, the Son, and Holy Ghost. The penchant for arranging and dividing according to the trinity, was very conspicuous among the Egyptians, who had learned of it from the Druids.
The suits of the ancient Tarot (as well as of regular playing cards) are based on the four sacred treasures of the ancient Irish. These four august treasures which are the prototypes of the suits are the Wand or Lance of Lugh (the Sun King), the Sword of Nuada (the High King), the Stone of Manannan Mac Lir (God of the Sea), and the Cauldron of the Dagda (the All-Father).
Into this Cauldron of Plenty dead heroes could be placed to be given new life, and from it all manner of dead things could be renewed. It provided food during times of famine and was also used for divination purposes.
Sir Thomas More wearing the "Collar of Esses" (Iesa). Note the Irish triskellion and serpentine "S" motifs. A ceremonial undergarment worn by the Egyptian solar priesthood was suggestively known as the "Essen" breastplate.
It is this sacred cauldron of the Druids, which became the prototype of the so-called "Holy Grail," the sacred chalice believed to contain to the "blood" of the dying savior Jesus Christ. Of course, we understand that the motifs of the grail chalice, as well as that of the dying savior, are of Druidic origins. It was not Jesus' blood that the cauldron or chalice contained, but that of Esus or Iesa, the dying god of the Earth, who gave up his life and who poured his blood and life-force upon the land to ensure the renewal of all life. Esus was the earth, but also the sun. He died to be reborn. As the Sun King, he was the icon for victory, triumph over evil, and the unification of opposites.
The word Dagda comes from the same root as daddy, meaning "Father." In Hebrew we have dagh, which means fish, but which connotes reptile or serpent. (The Hebrew term probably comes from Gaelic anyway). Another word for fish, is luce, which gives us lucifer. What does this tell us about Christians who have used the fish-symbol as an insignia of their path and for their leader?
Druidic oak leaves on the regalia of war and state uniforms. The "atheist" Soviet military officials wore oak leaf motifs on their lapels, while on the hats of US Cavalry officers and soldiers, during the American Civil War, crossed acorns were used. The oak was a tree of sacrifice. The co-opting of these ancient Irish symbols, by modern day governments, betrays secret society involvement.
The beehive on the architecture of the Bank of America building in Baltimore Maryland. This symbol, like the pyramid, represents an orderly, hierarchical society, the neo-feudal system so beloved of the oligarchs. Around this patently Masonic symbol are oak leaves and acorns.
The Bible contains many Druidic motifs. The composers of the Bible were not Semitic Jews, as most erroneously believe. They were the descendents of Atonist pharaohs from Egypt. As such, they could not help embedding their own ancient stellar motifs into the compilation. Later editors, not as familiar with the nuances and meanings of the Astro-Theological canon, made a travesty of the text. Some tales, such as that of Genesis, are very old, and were known throughout the ancient world. The motif of the Tree of Life was known to the Egyptians, Assyrians, Sumerians, Babylonians, Chaldeans, Phoenicians, and Irish Elders. The alphabet of the the Druids was based on their thirteen sacred trees.
A mosaic at VaticanCity showing the fleur-de-lis of the French Templars (and royalty) and the sacred tree. The motif of the central tree can be found as a prominent motif in the legends of most countries. Recent findings show that the most sacred temple precincts of Egypt contained a central tree, most often the yew. From the Irish word for yew, we derive the words Yuda, or Juda, or Jew. The Egyptians had their sacred trees, and the so-called Jews of the Bible had their so-called "burning bush." It's all Irish or Aryan.

The Kadosh: Third from the top, we see the 30th degree of the Accepted Scottish Rite. It is known as the degree of the "Knight Kadosh." The Kadosh are the elect, and their symbol is the wand or staff. The eastern Kadosh were successors of the Druids. The syllable Kad or Cad can be found in the word Caduceus, which referred to the staff and knowledge of Hermes, Thoth, or Mercury. Mercury (as Ogma, Cernunnos, and Herne) was a prominent deity of the Druids. Indeed, the rite of the Kadosh involved the four compass points, the four seasons, and the seven stages of the sun passing between Aries and Libra. The rite of Kadosh was based on Phoenician-Irish solar initiatory rituals. The syllable also appears in Cadmus and Cadmean, which refer to the Phoenicians and their wisdom. The Phoenicians were originally from Britain. The Hebrew word kedushah, means "holy." It also connotes "separateness," which suggests the Levites (the thirteenth tribe) who were considered the tribe apart. The Levites were, of course, the elite solar priests of the Hyksos dynasty. They were Atonists who followed their exiled leader Akhenaton out of Egypt. The Knight Kadosh degree is numbered 30, and this number is, of course, a multiple of 3, a Druidic numeral. Thirty is 3 times 10.
Equestrian Statues adorn most major cities of the Western world. In the occult world, however, the horse and the serpent are symbolically linked. The horse is referred to as a "nag." This apparently slang word for horses, comes from snagga, or snekka, and from the Hindu naga, meaning "serpent." The sign of Sagittarius which is symbolized by the centaur (half man, half horse) was originally symbolized by a "dragon man."
Moreover, the black horse which is seen in many pictures, movies, ads, and designs, also stands for secret societies. The Latin caballus, meaning "horse" or "steed," has the double meaning of Cabala, referring to ancient secret knowledge and to cabals, referring to the members of eminent occult societies.
Two of the most prominent Christian theologians were known as Athanasius of Alexandria and Anthony the Great. Athanasius (296-373 AD) was bishop of the great Egyptian city of Alexandria, and was also known as Pope Athanasius. The name Athanasius means "deathless" or "immortal." (Thanatos is the Greek word for "death," and the capital letter "A" is a negative prefix.) Anthony the Great (251-356 AD) was born in Lower Egypt and was known as Anthony of Egypt. A celebrated saint of the Eastern Orthodox Church, his biography was composed by Athanasius of Alexandria. The name Anthony comes from Anton, meaning "valuable," or "priceless," and anthropos, meaning "man." It is often mistakenly believed to derive from anthos, meaning "flower." It was a elite Roman family name (see Mark Anthony), and was originally Etruscan. The syllable ath, supposedly comes from akte, meaning "holy" or "revered." Some believe the term Athos refers to the various Christian hermits and ascetics (such as Athanasius the Athonite) who frequented early churches on or near mount Athos in Macedonia. We suspect that these two names were not chosen by accident. They are suggestively close to the name Aton, which can also be rendered Atn, Athon, Athen, Eton, and so on.
Here - Athanasius of Alexandria Here - Anthony the Great Here - Athanasius the Athonite
The name Moses refers to a fictional character and not to a real individual. It is a fictive reference to Atonist Pharaoh Akhenaton. After Akhenaton's fall, his ideological and biological descendents found new homes and bastions of power in lands outside Egypt. It is our belief that the chiefs of Akhenaton's solar cult were welcomed by certain elite families in many countries, including Britain, Greece and Italy.
In Greek history we find mention of a semi-mythical character known as Musaeus. This name is probably a variant of Moses, and most likely denotes a descendent of Akhenaton, that is, a chief of Aton. This link with the Old Testament Moses was emphasized by several historians of antiquity, including the second century Jewish historian Artapanus of Alexandria, himself of Egyptian descent:
Artapanus in particular claimed that Moses stood behind the figure of the Greek Musaeus, the Egyptian Hermes-Thoth - B. E. Colless (Divine Education)
If, like the name Moses, Musaeus was a title rather than a personal name, we may credibly assume that other pseudonyms for Akhenaton can be found in history as well as in mythology. This is certainly the case with the Hebrew name Manasseh, which denotes one of the twelve tribes of Israel. Remove the letters "n" and "h" and we are left with Masse, which closely approximates the name Moses.
It then appears that in the Masoretic Text the name of Moses was changed to Manasseh - Flavio Barbiero (The Secret Society of Moses)
This link between the prophet Moses (Akhenaton) and the tribe of Manasseh is most significant given the fact that the emblem of the tribe is to be found on the American one dollar bill. It is the famous eagle with its arrows.

Suggestive Symbolism (The Vision of Constantine)
Vision of the Cross, by Raphael
Macedonian-born tyrant Constantine (271-337 AD), was the first Christian Emperor. His conversion from paganism to Christianity allegedly occurred after he received a numinous vision of the cross and sun disk outside Rome the day before he rode to attack his rival Maxintius. Accounts of what allegedly occurred are found in the works of Roman historians Lactantius and Eusebius. Both state that Constantine saw a cross in the sky. Lactantius states that Constantine was directed by God to mark the shields of his soldiers with the symbol of and X-shape or cross. Eusebius reports that while marching, Constantine looked upward and saw the cross and sun together in the sky. Apparently, the cross or X-shaped figure emerged from the center of the sun bearing the message In Hoc Signo Vinci, meaning "In this sign ye shall conquer." According to Eusebius' rendition, we see that Constantine's cross was really an X-shape with the Latin letter "P" (English "R") over it. In Latin the letter "X" is known as Chi, and "P" is known as Rho. Constantine's emblem therefore became known as the "Chi Rho." These two letters are also found at the beginning of the word "Christ." Eusebius records that Constantine was visited by Christ in a dream the night after witnessing the strange vision of the cross and sun.
Of course there has been much scholarly debate and speculation over this anecdote from Constantine's life. Several historians have concluded that Constantine witnessed a physical event, some kind of sidereal conjunction taking place in the heavens above him. We do not rule out the possibility of the vision having astrological or astro-theological significance. However, we think that the anecdote most probably does not refer to a physical event that actually took place. We believe the story was interpolated as a subtextual reference to Atonism. After all, we only have to think back and remember who it was in history who had constant visions of the solar disk in the sky.
The mythmongers were simply creating a mytho-historical composite of Emperor Constantine and Pharaoh Akhenaton. In other words, Constantine did what Akhenaton had done. The experience of the former parallels the custom and favorite pastime of the latter. The sun was the Aton and the cross or Chi Rho was the junction of the celestial equator and ecliptic which the sun passes when in the sign of Aries every year. Akhenaton's skewed brand of monotheism was conceived because of the transition of the Aton into sign of Aries, around 1400 years BC. Therefore, Constantine the creator of Christianity (New Atonism), has a vision that subtextually recalls Akhenaton, the founder of Egyptian monotheism.
Pharaoh Akhenaton and the Aton Disk
The Chi Rho. If the six points are connected by lines, a Star of David will be formed. The "Davids" were the commanders of Aton.
Of course, researchers know that there was nothing new about the Ch Rho symbol. Long before the time of Christianity and Constantine's alleged vision, it was employed by members of the Sol Invictus and Apollo Cults, and by devotees of Mithras. Yes, there was nothing new about the symbol, and nothing new about the ideology.
Curiously the Chi Rho, or PX emblem, is almost identical to the XP symbol used by the Microsoft Corporation of modern times. Suggestively, the famous XP logo also bears a cross.

Suggestive Symbolism (Cont'd...) (Saint Jerome and the Lion)
Jerome was an early saint of the Christian Church. He is purported to have been born in 347 AD near to Dalmatia (Croatia). Some historians believe he may have been an Illyrian. His historical fame comes from his translation of the Bible into Latin. Saint Jerome's Bible became known as the Vulgate. He also wrote a vast amount of other works of theology. Jerome is considered a saint by the Vatican and the Eastern Orthodox Church. He studied in Rome, and, after his conversion, he became extraordinarily devout. He had much to say to his Christian audience about the horrors of hell that awaited them if they lost their faith and returned to a life of sin. In fact, Jerome was apparently obsessed with death and hell. Eventually, after living in France and Syria, he became more and more of an ascetic. He joined a small community of hermits in the deserts of Chalcis in Syria. While there, he learned Hebrew from a Jewish convert. Later in his life he made his way to Palestine to live out his days in a cave. He was later considered by the Church to be the patron of translators.
Many famous artists of later ages have portrayed Jerome the ascetic in his lonely cave, surrounded by his books and writings. In art, his symbols include a red hat or cloak, indicating his status as Cardinal of the Roman Church; a skull, ostensibly representing asceticism and contemplation on the mysteries of life and death; the cross; the owl, representing learning; and also the lion.
According to an apocryphal story, concocted in Medieval times, a wounded lion made its way to the monastery where Jerome and his brethren were staying. This strange and highly unlikely account interests us because the lion is not only the symbol for the astrological sign of Leo, the house of the sun, but it was a cardinal symbol for Akhenaton and for other Egyptian pharaohs. In an Egyptian context, the lion was a well known emblem of royalty.

Suggestive Symbolism (Cont'd...) The Coronation Chair
The history of the royal Coronation Chair is long and cannot be told here. We can but mention that King Edward's Chair was appropriated from Ireland by way of Scotland. It is the chair on which the first Atonist-Milesians kings of Ireland sat after their coronation at Tara. According to legend, the chair stood over the sacred "Stone of Fal" or Stone of Stones, which would cry out if a false king attempted to seize the reigns of power. The Atonist (Solar) symbolism is apparent in the design of the chair. It is mounted on four Atonist lions, and the back of the chair is capped with a triangle representing the pyramid of Egypt.
As we can see from the two photographs above, the Queen's throne, styled after King Edward's Chair, is identical in design to the chair employed by high degree Freemasons. In the lower photograph we see a grand master of Freemasonry seated in a chair featuring an eye and pyramid motif. Although the Queen is not officially a member of Freemasonry, she heads many other powerful orders, such as the Order of St. Michael and St. George, the Knights of the Garter, and Knights of St. John, etc. Many members of her family are senior members of Britain's most powerful secret societies. (See our DVD The Irish Origins of Civilization: The Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II.) The symbolism incorporated into the Coronation Chair reveals that there are close ties between monarchy and masonry.

The Teutonic Knights
There exists not, upon the face of the earth, a better organized dictatorship, and which has maintained herself for so many centuries, than the Fascist political state of the Vatican. She has known how to use the name of Christianity astutely, and has willed to represent Christian values thus confusing and deceiving millions - Monsignor Rafael Rodriguez Guillen (Power of the Vatican)
It is insinuated that the symbolism employed by the Vatican, and by Protestantism and Catholicism, derives from Judaism and the so-called "Hebrews" of the Old Testament. We are not told that it derives from Egypt and Ireland. The Protestant churchmen have attempted to purge their religion of pagan symbolism, but their labor suffices only up to a point. To wholly erase the pagan symbolism from Christianity is to, ultimately, erase Christianity.
A study of the symbolism employed by Rome conclusively proves that there are strong connections between Catholicism and paganism. It also reveals sinister connections between Rome and various powerful secret societies. Furthermore, it gives us insight into the true origins of the Hitler's Nazi Party. Such a study furnishes us with proof that the supposed antipathy Nazis had toward Christianity was merely a facade to fool the mass of the Party's members. As the symbolism reveals, the connections between the Nazi Party and the secret orders of the Vatican were very strong indeed.
That the Vatican encouraged such investments and even donated money to Hitler himself cannot be denied. A German nun, Sister Pascalina, was present at its creation. In the early 1920s she was the housekeeper for Archbishop of the Vatican-Nazi connection...Eugenio Pacelli, then the papal nuncio in Munich. Sister Pascalina vividly recalls receiving Adolf Hitler late one night and watching the archbishop give Hitler a large amount of Church money - Loftus and Aarons (The Secret War Against the Jews)

The Nazis professed themselves to be anti-Christian and anti-Jewish. However, the symbolism tells a different tale.
The emblem of the Grand Lodge of the Order of Malta, featuring two Masonic columns representing the sacred trees of ancient Druidry, and the pyramid with solar rays at the top. The eye of Aton within the pyramid can be seen on the American one-dollars note.
Further research reveals that the symbolism of both the Teutonic Knights and the Nazis derives not only from Roman Catholicism, but from Judaism. Of course, as we have pointed out, the symbolism employed both by Christians and Jews has an even older origin. Prior to it being willfully corrupted, it was Druidic.
Compare the color and stripes of the Levite robe (in the picture above) with those found on the Nazi flag. As far as the world is concerned, there was not meant to be religious or ideological connections between Nazis and Jews. But again, as we have said, official history is nothing but a tissue of lies. Once we understand that the Israelites and the Levites were Atonist pharaohs of Egypt, and not a rag tag bunch of oppressed slaves looking for a homeland, the mysteries of religion and religious symbolism stand explained. (See Irish Origins books and DVD for more on this symbolism.)

Lions and Eagles One of the most abused symbols is that of the lion. This symbol is nowadays an all pervasive state symbol since it represents the controlling Atonists who work from behind the thrones of Judeo-Christianity.
The Lion of the Tribe of Judea - major minions of the Cult of Aton. The word Judah (from Yahud), means "the Heirs."
An all pervasive "State" motif used by the descendents of the Cult of Akhenaton and Aton.

Left: The doorway of the Council on Foreign Relations HQ in New York, featuring solar rays and lion's heads. This Atonist symbolism is to be found on the door of 10 Downing St, the HQ of the British Government.
The truth regarding this enigmatic and impressive symbol is revealed by etymological evidence. In Egyptian the word for lion is - AR, or alternatively AARI, or even ARY. There is little difference between this word and that of ARYA or ARYAN which, as we have shown, did not signify race but rank - spiritual rank. It simply denoted intellectual and mystical status. Those of highest rank in ancient times were graduates from the great Druidic colleges that existed throughout the world. Perhaps the image of the lion, as well as the stag (know in Egyptian as AYIR), and eagle, adorned the architecture of such colleges. We can never know for sure. In any case, the symbol of the lion represented the pure and noble ones. Additionally, the Egyptian word for hero was similar to that for lion. It was aaraar, which still sounds like "Arya," or "Aryan." The Hittites of ancient Anatolia (Turkey) who were Aryans, had a capital city known as the "City of Eagles," and its main feature was its giant "Lion Gates."
Interestingly, in Hebrew the word for lion is Aryeh. This word can also be rendered Ari, and can be found in a few Old Testament passages.
The goddess Baratana (Britannia/Britain) with the lion of the Arya. The word "Sweden" comes from Svea, the name of a tutelary goddess who is, like Baratana, often portrayed seated with the lion of the Arya beside her throne.
In Irish Myth, the young solar king Lugh (lion) rides out to defend his people against the Fomorian giant Balor of the Evil Eye. Lugh rides out to battle and due to his radiance the assembled armies thought the sun had risen in the West. Advisor to Nuada, the mighty Lugh's full title was Sami-Ildanach meaning "Master of all the Arts." Riding toward Balor Lugh slew his giant rival with the stone from a sling. This story of Lugh predates the rise of Judaism and perfectly illustrates the penchant for plagiarization of the later mythmongers, working on their assignments, under orders from the Atonists sitting high on their thrones in Britain and Rome. Their data had been compiled over centuries. The mythmongers had at least one thousand years to assimilate the Druidic motifs. Their work shows us that they knew not what to do with the "gold" that had fallen into their unworthy hands. They took Excalibur and used it to cut onions in their kitchens. They stole the most precious archive known to mankind and had in their hands the resplendent remnants of Druidism. From that plunder they fashioned what we have today, and what has plagued the world for over two thousand years, namely, Judeo-Christianity.
Lugh was the great lion, the great hero, of Ireland. Saint Paul's Cathedral in London was erected over a major temple to Lugh. The name London comes from LLud's Dun, or Lugh's Town. Ludgate in London still bears the name of the solar king in corrupted form. In Wales he is Llew, and was also known throughout the world as Lugos, Lugal, Llud, Lew, Lewis, Lui, Louis, and so on. He was clearly the inspiration behind the Arthurian Sir Lancelot. Spiritually, he represented the Logos, the holy word and will of god which goes forth like a straight lance or sword. Lugh was the prototype for all the daring young heroes who take on and overcome the forces of evil. (Read Lugh's saga here)
Lugh is similar to the Grecian Hercules and Hindu heroes Savitar Prthupani and Yudhisthira - the left hand archer of India. And we believe that the Old Testament Saul was also based loosely on Lugh. Saul was another spear-thrower. The idea that the pharaoh of Egypt was also a hunter of lions and a spear caster seems to be based on the myths of the Irish Lugh. The pharaohs seemed to be styling themselves on this god who was intimately connected with war, skill, hunting, and the sun.
There is no warrior on earth like the Left-Handed Archer, the son of Pandu, supreme master of arms. For the celestial chariot of the Gandiva the bowman is protected by the gods. No man can defeat him: don’t set your heart on war! - (The Vedas)
Druidic Symbolism in America and the World
We have it on the authority of a Captain Davies, and Lieutenant Roberts of Hawcorden in Flintshire, and from a MS. entry in William Penn's journal, evidence collected by the famous Dr. Owen Pughe, that the tribes of the Illinois, Madocautes, the Padoucas and Mud Indians spoke the Welsh language - W. Winwood Reade (The Veil of Isis)
There is an abundance of legends and traditions concerning the passage of the Irish into America, and their habitual communication with that continent many centuries before the time of Columbus. We should bear in mind that Ireland was colonized by the Phoenicians...An Irish Saint named Vigile, who lived in the eighth century, was accused by Pope Zachary of having taught heresies on the subject of the antipodes. At first he wrote to the pope in reply to the charge, but afterward he went to Rome in person to justify himself, and there be proved to the pope that the Irish had been accustomed to communicate with a transatlantic world - Ignatius Donnelly
A good many Christians and Jews believe America to be the "New Israel." The Masonic Order is particularly fond of disseminating this theological concept, and today it is expounded from the pulpits of churches and by pontificating evangelists and their ken. As we have shown, "Israel" is merely a code word. It originally referred to the wise-ones of Egypt, Ireland, Palestine, and the world, to the high initiates of the stellar mysteries. It was later adopted and used by the Aton Cult, whose descendants commissioned the writing of the Bible, and who funded the rescripting of ancient history in order to disguise their own origins, as well as the facts about the various power races, tribes and cults of the ancient world.
The thirteen stripes on shield, and American flag, were first used by the British East India Company that operates in the US under the the auspices of the Russell Trust and infamous Skull and Bones Society. (For more information, see the works of Anthony Sutton, Dr. John Coleman, Eustace Mullins, and G. Edward Griffin.
British East India Flag
The United States of America is symbolized an eagle with arrows and olive branches in its talons. To the scholars who buy into the official story of the migration of Semitic tribes, this symbol derives from the Judaic Tribe of Manasseh. Above the eagle's head on the dollar bill is the six-pointed Star of David. The term "Camp David," comes from the Israelite or Atonist symbolic canon.
The coronation stone, upon which the kings and queens of England are crowned, is reputed to have come to Britain with Jeremiah himself, and be none other than the Bethel Stone upon which Jacob rested when he had his dream of the ladder ascending to heaven. The kings and queens of England are said to reign as custodians of the House of King David, and be of the "Seed of David." The dove which appears on the maces of the queen of England, and emblazoned on Visa credit cards, is also a reference to the House of David (Doved) whose symbol is the dove.
The cardinals of Rome, and even the Pope himself, can be seen often wearing the "Hebrew" yarmulke. The olden-day monks would shave their heads into a ring to represent Saturn (Yahweh), the god of the Semites. The modern day priests wear the black dress with the white ring around their necks, again to symbolize the ring of Saturn. (Jews worship, on Saturday or Saturn's Day). In Christian art we see the "halo" representing the sun, but also the rings of Saturn. Bells are rung in Churches to call people to worship. The word bell, however, comes from Ba'al, or Bel, an early Phoenician or Irish god worshipped throughout the ancient world.
The United Nations Flag, bearing the Druidic laurel leaves motif. Like the oak leaves, laurel was sacred to the Druids. Oak leaf designs are found on the carpet of the US Oval Office and on the military regalia of every major nation. The US Cavalry wore the oak-berries and crossed swords; the Nazis used the triple oak leaf design; and the French and Russian officers also display oak-leaf motifs on their lapels and caps.
The "Communist" flag of the Soviet Union. This flag displays Masonic (or Druidic) symbolism. The hammer is not the hammer of the Soviet shipyards, but of the Freemasonic enclaves in charge of the Soviet social experiment. It is the famous Masonic gavel. Then there is the sickle, which is not the sickle of the poor peasants, but of the modern-day Masons and ancient Druids. The star is the Masonic pentacle. The red background is also suggestive.
The Soviet sickle is a stylized letter "G"
The mural on the Grand Lodge of Massachusetts, the headquarters of American Masonry. Note the hammer and rule (a stylized "G"), and the Atonist solar rays.
The "Union Jack" (from Jacob) - Jacob was supposedly re-named "Israel" by God and was the father of the 12 Tribes. However, Jacob - like David or Solomon - represents the sun. The nursery rhyme that reads "jack be nimble, jack be quick, jack jump over the candlestick" refers to the sun passing over the celestial pole. The rhyme of Jack and Jill going "up the hill" is likewise a Astro-Theological device cryptically referring to the passage of the sun (Jack) and moon (Jill) through the northern zodiacal arch and their subsequent "Fall" into autumn and winter. England's "Union Jack" is really of "Jacob," meaning a Solar (or Atonist) Union. The symbolism of this flag is explored more thoroughly in Chapter 42 of Volume Two, entitled: The Scarlet Thread.
The Flag of Ulster (Northern Ireland) - bearing the Star of David, royal crown, and red hand motif. These are Druidic symbols each and all, and not Judaic ones. Expert on Egypt Ralph Ellis claims that this red hand was based on the red glove of Atonist Pharaoh Aye (or Aya) who was fond of wearing trademark red gloves. We agree with this notion, since the Atonists did arrive in Ireland after the exile of Akhenaton in the form of the so-called "Milesians" or Children of Mile.
The new EU Flag - bearing 12 stars on a blue field. A patently zodiacal symbol. The EU Chief sits in, and officiates from, the 13th floor of the EU headquarters in Belgium, a country controlled by the Windsor Royals and their European counterparts (sic; the Guelphs and House of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha). Thirteen is the number of Aton.
The so-called "Star of David" or, more correctly, of the Davids, plural. Originally, before the rise of Judaism, the six-pointed star was a symbol of the Arya. This is why it is found in Northern India, as a symbol of biunity.
Although many excellent volumes have been penned on the fascinating subject of occult symbolism in the public and political domain (see our sources list), sadly most do not go nearly far enough in their exposes. Alarmingly, the work of distortion also continues. Many there are, in today's religious and political spheres, conspiring to ensure that the true story of the Druidic-Israelites never reaches the ears of the ordinary Jew and Gentile.
In the Druidic order indeed centered, and from it radiated to the whole world, civil and ecclesiastical knowledge of the realm: they were its statesmen, legislators, priests, physicians, lawyers, teachers, poets; the depositories of all human and divine knowledge; its Church and parliament; its court of law; its colleges of physicians and surgeons; its magistrates, clergy and bishops - Rev. R. W. Morgan (St. Paul in Britain)
The man who declares that the various elements of civilization spread from West to East is considered a pariah. This is the way it has been in the past and it remains so today. Despite the evidence he musters to support his thesis, he is ignored.
The officially concocted "story of history" is too deeply embedded in the minds of those he encounters. Those with vested interests, and with much to lose should the truth be known, would rather we accept that the customs and symbolic leitmotifs of Judaism and Christianity sprang into being for the first time, like Minerva from Jove's brow, from those sources, than acknowledge their antiquity and true origins. The so-called "Stone of Bethel" can be brought from the East to West and no one questions it. But to say that this stone was in Ireland thousands of years before its subsequent return to its homeland, is tantamount to academic heresy. If a patriarch raises a pillar of stones in the desert, if he lays his head upon a stone to dream of ladders ascending to heaven, or if he passes a cup to his brethren during a sacred feast, we are to take it that he does so for the first time.
We are not to question where the leitmotifs and singular rites came from, or what their true significance is. It is unique to that telling and to that prophet even if he is later proven to be a fictional prophet. The facts are buried beneath a mountain of mythmongering. Apparently, those giving us the history lessons seem determined to learn little from the lessons of history.
In the Mahabharata, written some centuries after the Ramayana, mention is made of Sveta Dwipa, the "White Island"...to the north-West of Mount Meru, the abode of the gods and the demi-gods in Central Asia...Scholars have been puzzled by this mysterious White Island...The Isle of Britain' is called by the Welsh Y Wen Ynys - i.e. the "White Island." The Holy Graal, or Sanct Greal is said, by Keltic authors, to have been brought to the White Isle...part of England - Dorothea Chaplain (Matter, Myth, and Spirit or Keltic and Hindu Links)
Iona had certainly a Druidical college till the community was expelled by Columba for his own community, and the Highlanders still recognize it as the Druid’s Isle. An old statistical work says, ‘the Druids undoubtedly possessed Iona before the introduction of Christianity.’ It must be admitted that the Culdees wore a white dress, as did the Druids, [and the Essenes] and that they occupied places which had a Druidical reputation. They used the Asiatic cross, now called that of St. Andrew’s. Notably, in an Irish version of the gospel of St. Matthew, the phrase “there came wise men from the east” is rendered “the Druids came from the east.” In like manner, in the Old Testament, Exodus vii. II, the “magicians of Egypt” are made “Druids of Egypt" - James Bonwick (Irish Druids and Old Irish Religions)
"Long time have we been informed by the writings of our ancestors," said Montezuma, "that neither myself nor any of those who inhabit this land are natives of it, but rather strangers who have come to it from foreign parts. We likewise know that from those parts our nation was led by a certain lord (to whom all were subject), and who then went back to his native land, where he remained so long delaying his return that at this coming those whom he had left had married the women of the land and had many children by them and had built themselves cities in which they lived, so that they would in no wise return to their own land nor acknowledge him as lord; upon which he left them...And we have always believed that among his descendants one would surely come to subject this land and us as rightful vassals. Now seeing the regions from which you say you come, which is from where the sun rises, and the news you tell us of this great king and ruler who sent you hither, we believe and hold it certain that he is our natural lord: especially in that you say he has long had knowledge of us" - Constance Irwin (Fair Gods and Stone Faces)
Throughout the generations the false story of the East to West migration of symbols and cultural leitmotifs is taken as fact by the vast majority of intellectuals.
Psychopath and egomaniac Winston Churchill being installed into the Albion Lodge of the Ancient Order of Druids at Blenheim Palace, 15 August 1908. Churchill was a member of the aristocratic Spenser family. His ancestor was the Duke of Marlborough. Churchill's father, the high-degree Freemason Lord Randolf Churchill, was the prime-mover behind the infamous "Jack the Ripper" series of murders. Throughout his political career, and two terms as British Prime Minister, Winston Churchill operated obediently and did exactly as his overlords in his father's Freemasonic "Alpha Lodge" commanded.
It is also accepted, "hook, line and sinker," by the masses trained to blithely accept everything they've been told by their rabbis, priests, and pastors. They believe the stories concocted for them, about the East to West migration of ten tribes of Israel, and of Jeremiah, the prophets, apostles, and other personalities. Of course this theory, especially propounded by Zionists and "British-Israelites," is true to a point. It refers to migrations that may have taken place relatively late in history, after the time the Druids had already made their earlier eastward excursions, and after their sublime gnosis had been infused into the far-flung cultures of the world. The treasures which the Israelites allegedly carried with them, and The "conjuring" of the many mythmongers has make these later migrations appear to be the original ones. The crime families of the world want their under-classes to believe that the many symbols found on the Western worlds' flags and regalia, and on the architecture and political and religious emblems, got there due to the Westward migration of Jewish prophets and their followers.
Once we know what is meant by the word "Jew," we understand the implication. We understand that we are being told a cleverly devised story, not about poverty stricken slaves but about super wealthy pharaohs and their confederates; those who bore the titles "Israelites," "Hebrews," and "Jews," as they were truly meant and intended. In any case, let us not doubt that there were earlier migrations from the West to the East and that it was these Western migrants who transmitted the elements of civilization to the world at large. which they brought into the West, were originally born in those clines. The so-called "Israelites" of the history books were merely returning home to ancestral lands.
