Funny Religion

I remember hearing a fabulous talk by Daisetz Suzuki in Ascona, Swtzerland.  It was, I think, his first talk there at the Eranos Foundation, and here was this group of Europeans in the audience and there was this Japanese man (he was about ninety-0ne years old at the time), a Zen philosopher.  He stood with his hands on his sides and he looked at the audience and said, "Nature against God.  God against nature.  Nature against man.  Man against nature.  Man against God.  God against Man.  Very funny religion."

Joseph Campbell, as quoted in the Hero's Journey

As a Mason goes through the 32 degrees of the Scottish rite, he ends up giving worship to every Egyptian pagan god, the gods of Persia, gods of India, Greek gods, Babylonian gods, and others.  As you come to the 17th degree, the Masons claim that they will give you the password that will give him entrance at the judgment day to the Masonic deity, the great architect of the universe.  It is very interesting that this secret password is “Abaddon”.

The Trinity God

The central Christian dogma that the One God exists in Three Persons (Father, son and holy spirit) and one substance.  It is a mystery in the strict sense, in that it can neither be known by reason apart from revelation, nor demonstrated by reason after it has been revealed …  The Persons differ only in origin, in that the Father is ungenerated, the son is eternally generated by the Father, and the holy spirit proceeds from the Father through the Son.”    The Concise Oxford dictionary of the Christian Church

According to the Jewish Encyclopedia, Lord Nathan Mayer Rothschild became “Guardian of the Papal Treasures” and the Vatican banker in 1823. Thus, the terrible power of money and religion were finally brought together.

 

I care not what puppet is placed upon the throne of England to rule the Empire on which the sun never sets.

The man who controls Britain’s money supply controls the British Empire, and I control the British money supply.
