Syncretism / ˈ s ɪ ŋ k r ə t ɪ z əm / is the combining of different (often seemingly contradictory) beliefs, often while melding practices of various schools of thought . Syncretism involves the merger and analogizing of several originally discrete traditions , especially in the theology and mythology of religion , thus asserting an underlying unity and allowing for an inclusive approach to other faiths.
By Philip Gardiner | bestsyndication.com Abraham the Israelite father of mankind, and Hiram of the Freemasons, are one and the same, and both are based upon serpent worshippers with Indian Naga or serpent deity backgrounds. A grand statement, but one that I am not alone in making.
The Serpent and the Real Origins of Freemasonry
Yes he does . It would be worth checking out some of his leads ;-) I already knew some of the Isis and the mother Mary info of course but a lot in there I've never heard before . The Jewish influence is obvious . Most things about religion go way back before Judaism let alone Christianity . Egypt is a big source . Before Egypt it gets murkier . by Feb 22
Boy this pearl link is pretty complicated ! I think the author over reached somewhat . He should have not bounced around so much . Keeping things in perspective and more to the point . It does make a lot of interesting points though ;-) Some I knew some I didn't . It will take a lot of studying on this one ! ;-) Fits right into my comparative on religion pearl ! by Feb 21
And it wasn't that the Templar’s had this big master plan at first . They were a rag tag unit of misfits mostly . So they did what was efficient and sort of natural . They brought in as many extra people as they could . Those people were taken into the fold as Templar’s and unionized for stability . The church loved them at first but ended up hating them because of their financial a social power . The Church did their best to exterminated them . by Feb 21
That's why the Freemason's are so mysterious . They were secret for good reason. If the church found out that the church builders and the mercenaries they sent out to push their religious agenda were forming a union of all religions they would have been a little upset to say the least ;-) So Mason's aren't really a cult they are a religion based on all religions . So workers + mercenaries + religion = Freemasons ;-) The Templar’s became bankers also . They were arguably the first banking system ;-) by Feb 21
It could be considered a cult but it depends on your perspective . There is a lot of mystery there that not even the Freemasons know . Lost to history and time. The Freemasons seem to have been formed from the stone masons who built the cathedrals and mercenaries like the Templar’s . Most people think of the Templar’s as religious knights . But the were pretty much just mercenaries hired by the Christian Hierarchy to provide religious order by force . The Templar’s were a mix of many peoples and religions . They were more tolerant of the various beliefs , religions and cultures of the peoples they were sent to control and conquer then the Christian Hierarchy that had sent them . The Templar’s became involved in many thing including seeing that building were built in areas they controlled . Thus builders ( mason's ) and Templar’s started to form a union . Not just builders a multifaceted religion made up of all religious orders ( eventually ) and all types of people . by Feb 21
Thanks I'll have to read it later, got to go for now . I've been studying the Freemason's lately . The Alice Project actually has references to the Freemasons ;-) Because my nephew who I'm doing the painting for is a Freemason same as my half brother ( his father ) And they both wanted the symbolisms included . I've always been fascinated by them . They are very mysterious and interesting . Some people hate them . I'm an agnostic myself . So I look at it from a somewhat detached point of view so to speak ;-) by Feb 20

Semiramis depicted as an armed Amazon in this eighteenth-century Italian illustration. For ancient Greeks and Persians [ 1 ] Semiramis (in Greek, Semiramis , in Persian ' Shamiram' ) was the legendary queen of king Ninus , succeeding him to the throne of Assyria.

In the Biblical narrative the foundations of the stories parables and proverbs are based on Nile Valley High Culture.The esoteric wisdom and concepts within the Bible itself were esoteric original African teachings plagiarized and adopted by the people who compiled the Bible. Which was eventually given to Africans under duress and they would become kidnap victims and eventual slaves of European Xtians who bastardized these teaching and truths they got from the first Xtian Church The Egyptian Coptic Church. Many who are Xtians don’t necessarily have a grip on Nile Valley High Culture and it’s history so there’s information that only those educated in history and religion and especially Egypt’s connections to the foundations and origins of the Judeo-Xtian and Islamic tradition would understand.
PAGANISM The Mother of All Religions - Paganism in Africa
Keep in mind that all the African symbols and rituals (of its Mystery System) described in the following paragraphs preceded Ethiopian/Chaldean/Babylonian Albigensianism by over 100 years, Hinduism by over 1000 years, Judaism by over 3,000 years, Zoroastrianism and Buddhism by over 3,500 years, Christianity by over 4425 years and Islam by nearly 5000 years. Africans invented religion from which all the religions of the world took their bearing, ideas, dogma, structure, symbols, architecture, rituals and traditions. African Osirianism was founded by many, consolidated by Ausar in 4100 BCE. Africans created several Gods and do not worship the 'One Source,' which they revere and which in modern time, we call Tu-SoS. No religion or spiritual movement worships the 'One Source.'

The Uraeus ( / j ʊ ˈ r i ə s / ; [ 1 ] plural Uraei or Uraeuses ; from the Greek οὐραῖος , ouraīos , "on its tail"; from Egyptian jʿr.t ( iaret ), "rearing cobra") is the stylized, upright form of an Egyptian cobra ( asp , serpent , or snake ), used as a symbol of sovereignty , royalty , deity , and divine authority in ancient Egypt . The Uraeus is a symbol for the goddess Wadjet , who was one of the earliest Egyptian deities and who often was depicted as a cobra. The center of her cult was in Per-Wadjet , later called Buto by the Greeks. [ 2 ] She became the patroness of the Nile Delta and the protector of all of Lower Egypt . The pharaohs wore the Uraeus as a head ornament: either with the body of Wadjet atop the head, or as a crown encircling the head; this indicated Wadjet's protection and reinforced the pharaoh's claim over the land. In whatever manner that the Uraeus was displayed upon the pharaoh's head, it was, in effect, part of the pharaoh's crown .

Temple of Isis in Philae , Egypt Isis ( Ancient Greek : Ἶσις , original Egyptian pronunciation more likely Aset ) is a goddess in Ancient Egyptian religious beliefs , whose worship spread throughout the Greco-Roman world . She was worshipped as the ideal mother and wife as well as the patroness of nature and magic. She was the friend of slaves , sinners , artisans , and the downtrodden, and she listened to the prayers of the wealthy, maidens, aristocrats, and rulers. [ 1 ] Isis is often depicted as the mother of Horus , the hawk-headed god of war and protection (although in some traditions Horus's mother was Hathor ). Isis is also known as protector of the dead and goddess of children. The name Isis means "Throne". [ 2 ] Her headdress is a throne.
Set ( pron.: / s ɛ t / ) or Seth ( / s ɛ θ / ; also spelled Setesh, Sutekh, Setekh, or Suty) is a god of the desert , storms , and foreigners in ancient Egyptian religion . In later myths he is also the god of darkness and chaos . In Ancient Greek , the god's name is given as Sēth (Σήθ). In Egyptian mythology , Set is portrayed as the usurper who killed and mutilated his own brother Osiris . Osiris' wife Isis reassembled Osiris' corpse and embalmed him.

Nephthys ( pron.: / ˈ n ɛ p θ ɨ s / or / ˈ n ɛ f θ ɨ s / ) or Nebthet ( / ˈ n ɛ b ˌ θ ɛ t / ) is a member of the Great Ennead of Heliopolis in Egyptian mythology , a daughter of Nut and Geb . Nephthys was typically paired with her sister Isis in funerary rites [ 1 ] because of their role as protectors of the mummy and the god Osiris and as the sister-wife of Set . [ edit ] Etymology

Hathor ( pron.: / ˈ h æ θ ɔr / or / ˈ h æ θ ər / ; [ 2 ] Egyptian : ḥwt-ḥr , "mansion of Horus ") [ 1 ] is an Ancient Egyptian goddess who personified the principles of joy, feminine love, and motherhood. [ 3 ] She was one of the most important and popular deities throughout the history of Ancient Egypt. Hathor was worshiped by Royalty and common people alike in whose tombs she is depicted as "Mistress of the West" welcoming the dead into the next life. [ 4 ] In other roles she was a goddess of music, dance, foreign lands and fertility who helped women in childbirth, [ 4 ] as well as the patron goddess of miners. [ 5 ] The cult of Hathor predates the historic period, and the roots of devotion to her are therefore difficult to trace, though it may be a development of predynastic cults which venerated fertility, and nature in general, represented by cows. [ 6 ] Hathor is commonly depicted as a cow goddess with head horns in which is set a sun disk with Uraeus .
Horus is one of the oldest and most significant deities in ancient Egyptian religion , who was worshipped from at least the late Predynastic period through to Greco-Roman times. Different forms of Horus are recorded in history, and these are treated as distinct gods by Egypt specialists. [ 1 ] These various forms may possibly be different perceptions of the same multi-layered deity in which certain attributes or syncretic relationships are emphasized, not necessarily in opposition but complementary to one another, consistent with how the Ancient Egyptians viewed the multiple facets of reality. [ 2 ] He was most often depicted as a falcon, most likely a lanner or peregrine , or as a man with a falcon head. [ 3 ]
