Astral Worship by J.H. Hill
J. H. Hill discusses the beginnings of pagan religions as well as the beliefs of the magi. He mentions the beliefs in nature and also the beginnings of astrology. Hill states, \”the votaries of your ancient Astral worship divided into two distinct classes, the Esoterics, or Gnostics; plus the Exoterics, or Agnostics; the former comprising those that knew that the Gods were mythical and the scriptures allegorical; and the latter, people who were taught that the Gods were real, as well as scriptures historical; or, basically, it was philosophy for the cultured few, and religion for the ignorant multitude. The initiates in the secrets of these two systems recognized them as the two Gospels; and Paul needs to have had reference to them in the Epistle to the Galatians ii., 2 where he distinguishes the Gospel that she preached on ordinary occasions from that Gospel that she preached \”privately to them which were of reputation.\” Astral Worship discusses, \”the changes this agreement the creed and scriptures were subjected through the Middle Ages, and at the Reformation in the sixteenth century, through which they assumed the phases as now taught from the theologies, respectively of Catholicism and Orthodox Protestantism. In addition we present an article relative to Freemasonry and Druidism; when it comes to showing that primarily we were holding but different forms of the ancient Astrolatry. We also devote a few pages towards subjects of the Sabbath, and to that from Pious Frauds.\”
Astrological Body Types : Face, Form and Expression by Judith A. Hill
There is really little innocence, passion and authenticity in existence. This book has everything. I dare anyone who picks that not to find something insightful and delightful in it. The illustrations are quite lovingly drawn and somehow flourish in relating the ideas contained in the book far better than photographs ever could. The reader receives a real sense of how astrological placements reflect how you will look and use our bodies. I recently found this, along with Hill\’s book on medical astrology especially useful in furthering my understanding and appreciation strategies the chart describes face and the entire body types. I recommend this book highly, it is a real gem.

Over the last decades interest has dramatically increased several of the guru\’s predictions have been proven.
Astrotheology & Shamanism by Jan Irvin and Andrew Rutajit
Jan Irvin and Andrew Rutajit delve deep into Judeo-Christian symbolism and mythology in Astrotheology & Shamanism to disclose the true origins of Christianity in fertility cults and entheogenic substance abuse. The authors show, while using numerous images, textual citations, and etymological analyses, that this symbols used in Christian art and encoded in sacred texts reference sacramental usage of psychedelic mushrooms as well as ancient astronomical knowledge. This data has been kept secret on the public, however, and the truth has stayed concealed behind a campaign to ban access to entheogenic sacraments through a Pharmacratic Inquisition (this the current \”War on Drugs\” is the latest manifestation). As well as a call to wake up on the true history of Judeo-Christian tradition, the authors need a return to direct spiritual experience through visionary sacraments unmediated through dominating religious institutions. It\’s a powerful and provocative book that is definitely sure to challenge and inspire. C Martin W. Ball, Ph.D. Author, The Entheogenic Evolution: Psychedelics, Consciousness and Awakening our Spirit.
Astrotheology A Sidereal Mythology by Michael Tsarion
Christians does not have to find salvation from sin. They ought to find salvation from priestly deceivers who definitely have everything to lose should their congregations get the true origins of their religion. They should be saved from myth-mongers and forgers accountable for cannibalizing and rescripting the traditions on the ancient Cults. Christian theology is based on Astro-Theology. This is a corrupt hybrid of Irish Druidism and Egyptian Amenism. Not able to Christianity depends upon this truth being well-known and accepted. It depends upon the exposure of deceivers in high places who go on to profit from the ignorance and blind faith of millions of men and women who, despite their unique resistance and apathy, deserve to know the truth-

The works of countless early critics of the Christian church were burned by ruling emperors you aren\’t destroyed in the second and third centuries, but the writings of the Greek pagan philosopher, Celsus, have survived indirectly through his eloquent opponent Origen of Alexandria.

Hesiod and Theognis
The life of Hesiod, remote from towns, and a lot away up the gulf of one\’s, and his poetry devoid of sensation j and excitement to use almost impersonal didacticism, place the writer who relates to them at a disadvantage, versus one whose theme is an ancient epic, or a Greek or Eornan historian. He lacks, in a very great measure, the choice of parallels by help of which he may abridge the distance amongst the shadowy past and the living present. He cannot easily persuade himself or his readers to understand, in the inspired rustic of Ascra, \” a heart once pregnant with celestial fire,\” while he reflects how foreign for the wildest, dreams of an English ploughman would be the reduction to verse of his rural experiences, or, still more, of his notions for the divine governance of the universe. Yet this is certainly scarcely an excuse for overlooking the potential contemporary of Homer, the poet.
Jesus as well as the Lost Goddess by Timothy Freke & Peter Gandy

The Lost Light: An Interpretation of Ancient Scriptures by Alvin Boyd Kuhn
Lost Star of Myth and Time by Walter Cruttenden
Lost Star of Myth and Time weaves together many of the latest archaeological evidence with cutting-edge astronomy to disclose a history of the world that finally fits with myth, folklore along with the archaeological record. While this book explores many of the most interesting aspects of a once advanced civilization that covered planet earth, it is really about what happens to the world and consciousness as our solar system moves through space while in the mysterious motion known as the \”precession of the equinox\”. This astronomical phenomenon has since Newton been produced by local gravitational forces wobbling our planet s axis. Lost Star now shows us in no uncertain terms that the Earth s axis does not change orientation in accordance with objects inside the solar system in the same rate that it changes orientation to things outside the solar system, meaning precession need to be due to our Sun s binary motion around another star.
Manilius Astronomica by Manilius
Marcus Manilius, who lived while in the reigns of Augustus and Tiberius, is a author of the earliest treatise on astrology we possess. His Astronomica, a Latin didactic poem in five books, starts off with an account of celestial phenomena, after which you can proceeds to treat of the warning signs of the zodiac and the twelve temples; there follow instructions for calculating the horoscoping degree, and information chronocrators, decans, injurious degrees, zodiacal geography, paranatellonta, along with other technical matters. Besides exhibiting great virtuosity in rendering mathematical tables and diagrams in verse form, the poet writes with a bit of passion about his Stoic beliefs and shows much wit and humour within his character sketches of persons born under particular stars. Perhaps choosing a lead from Virgil in his Georgics, Manilius abandons the proportions of his last book to narrate the story of Perseus and Andromeda at considerable length.
In spite of the company\’s undoubted elegance, the Astronomica is a difficult work, and this edition provides along with the first English prose translation a complete guide to the poem, with copious explanatory notes and illustrative figures.
Ovid Metamorphoses by Charles Martin
Ovid\’s epic poem-whose theme of change has resonated all over the ages-is one of the most important texts of Western imagination, an inspiration from Dante\’s times to the present day, when writers for example Salman Rushdie and Italo Calvino have found a living source in Ovid\’s work.

Tetrabiblos by Claudius Ptolemy
Claudius Ptolemy (c.100 C c.178 AD), of Alexandria, was one of the biggest philosopher/scientists of the ancient world. Among his books are definitely the Almagest, Geography, Optics, Planispherium and Tetrabiblos.
The earliest surviving type of Tetrabiblos is the paraphrase attributed to Proclus the Philosopher (412-485). Tetrabiblos (literally, \”four books\”) was long thought of as a complete survey of Greek astrology. Recent studies suggest this not to be the case, but Ptolemy\’?\’s work remains to be the foundation of western astrology. Especially, his persuasive use of the Tropical Zodiac, instead of the Sidereal, changed western astrology forever.

The Astrological Reasons for the Christ Myth Book Two by Malik H. Jabbar
Author\’s review: It proves that ancient mythology was, in truth, written allegorical records of astronomical or celestial transitions, beneath type of mythical deities. The History of the biblical Jesus Christ is used by the symbolical history of prior Sun Deities. His birth through to his death, as represented during the bible, is a symbolical representation within the annual Sun Cycle, which is given detailed explanation with this book we have correlated most of the major events in the lifetime of the biblical Jesus utilizing their astronomical counterparts C this symbolism is thoroughly explained, and proven from the Book. The cosmic transitions we\’ve correlated to the biblical time of Jesus Christ are clear and explicit. The story of the Children of Israel, in the bible, is pure symbolism also, and various aspects parallels the fundamental storylines of the mythical Jesus. The fabled stories on the Old Testament carry symbolisms just like those of the New Testament scriptures, and we all have provided insights into the Old Testament allegories as well; relevant to cosmic, agricultural, and cultural symbolisms.
The Astrological First step toward the Christ Myth Book Three by Malik H. Jabbar
The reason for this book is to explain the seminal relationship between Astronomy, Myth and Modern Religion. It shows that ancient Myth/Religion was, in truth, a written record of the celestial movements within the Cosmos under the Type of Mythical Deities. The Bible is actually a Registry of Astronomical Phenomena written in a Mythological Format. The mythical tales of your bible fit into the same category as that relating to ancient Rome or Greece. The bible was composed to mirror two levels of thought C the Exoteric as well as Esoteric. The Exoteric is pure fantasy at its Literal Level. This is a Code that shrouds the Esoteric Level that\’s directed to the Initiated. This Book interprets that Code.
The Astrological First step toward the Christ Myth Book Four by Malik H. Jabbar
Theology Of your time is the best definition of the evolution of religion that I have ever heard C it started as astronomy that evolved into cryptic Myth (Mythology, Tales and Folklore) C and out of this mix has emerged our modern day religious creeds. The fables that we call religious history are totally bogus in terms of actual history. The evolution of our modern Religious Concepts began with Astronomy, and evolved through Mythology and Astrology into modern religion. Jesus , Moses , Abraham and all of the other so-called prophets of the Quran , Bible and Torah are cosmic myths C they never existed in actual history. These are personifications of cosmic entities and their tales, in reality, are no less than a registry of astronomical phenomena written in a mythological format. The best term that I have ever heard like a description of religion is Theology Of time C that\’s exactly what religion is and possesses always been. Religious myth was born out of a system of Time-Keeping, its originators were primitive stargazers whose history goes more thousands of years than I have to count. Within this Book, we shall also bring greater clarity towards important book of Genesis. In Chapter two We\’ve included much of the Stellar and Circumpolar symbolism that\’s omitted from the previous volumes. The inclusion of your stellar symbolism and its interpretations will deliver the reader a much broader comprehension of biblical allegory. I have discovered astronomical correlations going back over 8,000 years while in the Book Of Genesis. The interpretations are extremely vivid and jolting. We have attacked and explained many of the most enigmatic portions of the bible within Book Four, as well as the Book Of RevelationsC that mystery with the Ages. We have included many interpretations concerning Environmental (Agricultural) symbolism through this Volume, as it is very pertinent towards the New Testament and to Revelations in addition.
The Bible Fraud by Tony Bushby
This groundbreaking book reveals around the globe for the first time original new specifics of the emergence of the New Testament as well as story of Jesus Christ. It offers historical evidence showing but not only vital ancient manuscripts been hidden with the public domain but also other sensitive and associated Biblical material have been purposely withheld or suppressed from the general populace.
An examination of on the planet ! reveals nothing less than a new account of your development of Christian belief and provides a conflicting and supportable version fot it put forward by the priesthood. More alarming is always that the church hierarchy of today admits the of the information uncovered suggestions factual and yet still withholds it from public knowledge.
The Biggest Lie Ever Told through Malik H. Jabbar
This is the fourth edition with this book \”The Biggest Lie Ever Told\” . Ebook has been extensively revised and enhanced. This edition of the book contains in excess of twice the content of the previous volume. A great deal of the commentary has been diligently refined pursuant to greater clarity. We have now also added a great deal of information tightly related to religious esotericism and mythology that was not as part of the previous volumes. The purpose of this book should be to serve as a primer for those getting into the arena of Secular Theological Research; what is actually Secular Theological Research C it is research based upon reason and facts, governed by scientific methods of investigation, and not influenced by popular opinions or favored dogmas. Secular Theologists aren\’t guided by faith in almost any particular creed, but rather follow paths charted by reason and pragmatism. They are investigators first and believers or nonbelievers second, based on the prevailing winds of reasonable evidences or lack thereof. Secular Theologists never accept the concepts of so-called godly revelations, or sacred scriptures to accomplish this would be tantamount to exempting said sacred scriptures in our critical examinations, because such documents (scriptures) is deemed inviolable by reason of these so-called sacred sources; therefore the word sacred would not exist in the working vocabulary of Secular Theologists. All scriptures from religions are viewed with equal skepticism, and they are judged worthy or unworthy solely as dictated because of the yardsticks of truth; and truth, as you know, tends to be reasonable, logical, plausible, and oftentimes verifiable when researched. This book contains the information that was listed in the previous volume, plus much more, as I have indicated above.

The Christ Conspiracy The highest Story Ever Sold by Acharya S
Controversial and explosive, The Christ Conspiracy marshals an enormous amount of startling evidence that the religion of Christianity and Jesus were created by members of various secret societies, mystery schools and religions so as to unify the Roman Empire under one state religion! This powerful book maintains the groups drew upon a multitude of myths and rituals that already existed before the Christian era and reworked them within the story the Christian religion presents today-known to numerous Westerners as the Bible.
Author Acharya makes the case there was no actual person named Jesus, but that several characters were rolled into one mythic being inspired with the deities Mithras, Heracles/Hercules, Dionysus and many others of the Roman Empire. She demonstrates that the story of Jesus, as portrayed within the Gospels, is nearly identical in detail to the of the earlier savior-gods Krishna and Horus, and concludes that Jesus was certainly neither original nor unique, nor was he the divine revelation. Rather, he represents the particular ancient body of knowledge produced by celestial observation and natural forces. An ebook that will initiate heated debate and inner struggle, it can be intelligently written and referenced. Really the only book of its kind, it is destined for controversy.
The Disadvantage of Christian History by Helen Ellerbe
Over a time of nearly two millennia, the Christian Church has oppressed and brutalized a lot of individuals. Meticulously researched and courageously written, \”The Bad side of Christian History\” by Helen Ellerbe examines the Church\’s devastating impact upon human freedom, dignity and spirituality. Written to the lay reader, this controversial book is extremely relevant today as the religious right is trying to assert greater influence in American politics and society. \”The Negative side of Christian History presents a compelling argument that the Church\’s desire to control and contain spiritually motivated its persecution of heretics, its burning of libraries, the Crusades, the Inquisition, along with the witch-hunts. This dark Christianity ahs left a legacy, a world view, which permeates every facets of Western society. It is a legacy which fosters sexism, racism, the intolerance of difference as well as the desecration of the natural environment. Helen Ellerbe is a researcher, writer, and presenter living in the San Francisco bay area.
The Devil\’s Pulpit by Robert Taylor
This selection of sermons was meant to challenge the rigid and uncompromising views that were held by Christianity in England at the moment. Reverend Taylor was originally a doctor who began the holy orders from the Church of England. His intense curiosity and need to find the truth found him studying the roots of Christianity and its interesting connections to astrology plus the signs of the zodiac. He came to the conclusion that Christianity is based on much older religions and its particular rituals are directly descended from ancient Egyptian and pagan practices. Although Taylor\’s holy orders were revoked and was banned from preaching inside U.K., he continued his work with Ireland. He later returned to England and have become even more controversial than ever. Charged with blasphemy, he kept writing in jail. Upon his release he toured the universities of England by using a colleague, debating and beating virtually everyone with material covered in this particular book. Subjects covered range from the origins of Christianity, the real aim of Jesus and the apostles, and the incredible importance of the zodiac and its symbolism in connection with Christianity. Rev. Taylor was a trailblazer for all those who dare to question current beliefs.

The Gospel on the Zodiac by Bill Darlison
Who was Christ? Did he exist? For millennia stuck been driven by the differences regarding the great patriarchal religions. Western civilizationCor Christendom, while it was once calledCreceived its values as well as its confidence from a belief in God, the daddy, and Jesus, his only son. But what happens if this conviction were founded for an error?
Who is the man in the factually inconsistent Gospel stories? And who may be the man who makes a brief appearance carrying a jar water? This extraordinary study with a Unitarian minister suggests that Jesus never existed historically; he was only one representation of an astrological theologyCa representation, it\’s really simple, of the zodiac sign of Aquarius. Within the Gospel and the Zodiac, Reverend Bill Darlison reveals that all the other signs are present too, in perfect zodiacal order. The Gospel story isn\’t the product of historians or eyewitnesses, but a more mature, mystical text produced by an early, esoteric school as a help guide the Age of Pisces.
Every bit as revelatory and controversial as it sounds, The Gospel and the Zodiac will change the religious status quo, also in doing so, provide both a new look at a religious icon and also a deeper understanding of the faith that binds millions together.
The Hermetica by Timothy Freke
Here is a vital digest of the Greco-Egyptian writings produced by the legendary sage-god Hermes Trismegistus (Greek for thrice-greatest Hermes)-a mix of the Egyptian Thoth and the Greek Hermes.
The figure of Hermes was venerated as the great and mythical teacher within the ancient world and was rediscovered from the finest minds of the Renaissance. The writings produced by his hand are a time capsule of Egyptian and Greek esoteric philosophy and now have influenced figures including Blake, Newton, Milton, Shelley, Shakespeare, Botticelli, Leonardo da Vinci, and Jung.
Providing an appealing introduction to the intersection within the Egyptian and Hellenic cultures plus the magico-religious ideas of the antique world, The Hermetica is usually a marvelous volume for anyone considering understanding the West\’s roots in mystical thought.
The Historical Jesus along with the Mythical Christ by Gerald Massey
Massey was an Egyptologist who wrote a tremendous body of scholarly work. He figured much of Christianity and its belief structure was rooted in ancient Egyptian mythology. In the beginning this sounds strange, but a multitude of people have agreed, including the most respected scholars and researchers in the field of religious studies. If you want a different and compelling view of Christianity and its roots, this is the book to read.
The Jesus Mysteries by Timothy Freke
\”Whether you conclude that the book is the most alarming heresy on the millennium or the mother of the revelations, The Jesus Mysteries has to be read.\”
– Fort Worth Star -Telegram
What if . . .
* there had been absolutely no evidence for the presence of a historical Jesus?
* for centuries Pagans had also followed a Son of God?
* this Pagan savior has also been born of a virgin around the twenty-fifth of December before three shepherds, turned water into wine on a wedding, died and was resurrected, and offered his body and blood for a Holy Communion?
* these Pagan myths have been rewritten as the gospel of Jesus Christ?
* the initial Gnostic Christians knew that the Jesus story would have been a myth?
* Christianity turned out to be a continuation of Paganism by another name?
The Land of Osiris by Stephen S. Mehler
Egyptologist Stephen S. Mehler has spent over Thirty years researching the answers to these questions: ? Was there a advanced prehistoric civilization in ancient Egypt? ?
