I love Bill Hicks, genius, but what do you think?



Alex Jones would expose Debbie Gibson for this!!!

Even more interesting when you think about SACRED COW, the implications of that, and the Hicks character of "Goat Boy" who would sometimes come out during his routines.

Many scholars believe that the horns originated with the Goddess.
Woman associated their cycle with the Moon. The Horn may represent the crescent moon. The Bison horn has thirteen notches representing the cycles of the moon while the other hand rests on the pregnant belly.

Quote:
Venus of Laussel

Dated to approximately 25,000 B.C., the mother goddess holds a bison horn, symbol of the crescent moon and the hunt. The strikes on the horn may indicate a yearly cycle of thirteen lunar months. The original held traces of red ochre, probably to indicate the color of blood which was venerated as the life fluid. The monthly menstrual cycle of women therefore made them magical in their ability to shed blood and yet live. This mother goddess also seems pregnant, another aspect of femininity obviously seen as miraculous.

Exactly...

Though, we could also say this is the "Shining One", or "Lucifer the Light Bringer". Venus the Morning Star. Lucifer and Jesus are both referred to as "The Morning Star".

Keeper of fire, changing the world with the knowledge of good and evil.

It's just rather ironic that Alex Jones would expose everybody who possibly shows a "devil horn" hand signal, yet here is Bill Hicks, of whom Jones has been milking his celebrity for several years now through 'Sacred Cow' productions.

Rabbit hole deep, yes?

And then there is



Moses horns are not so odd of an icon with that in mind. Church of St. Peter
Michelangeloís statue of Moses carved when he was 30 as part of a monumental tomb for Julius II.

That one is the result of the translation error from hebrew to greek and the difference between the words for rays coming from his head and horns coming out of his head. I gather that the christians liked to demonize jews even back then......

Quote:
When Alexander entered Egypt, he received the typical fivefold title of the pharaoh: from now on, he was the Horus, the protector of Egypt; king of Upper and Lower Egypt; beloved by Amun; the chosen one of Ra; the son of Ra, Alexander. The last element, 'son of Ra', is of course the most important. As ruler of Egypt, Alexander was the son of the sun.
In February 331, Alexander arrived at the oasis of Siwa, where he wanted to visit the oracle of Zeus Ammon. It is not known what was discussed, but it is certain that after the visit, Alexander started to worship Ammon and wanted to be called 'son of Zeus' or 'son of Ammon', which amounts to the same. Already in Antiquity, people have thought that the oracle told Alexander that he was Zeus' son, but this hypothesis is unnecessary. After all, Alexander was already regarded as the son of the supreme god, Ra.



Quote:
When Alexander returned to Memphis in April, envoys from Greece were waiting for him, saying that the oracles at Didyma and Erythrae, which had been silent for a long time, had suddenly spoken and confirmed that Alexander was the son of Zeus. The timing proves that Alexander was already thinking that he was of a more than human nature when he entered Greece: after all, the people of Didyma and Erythrae can never have known that Alexander was recognized as the son of Ra and wanted to be called 'son of Zeus'.

Quote:

Isis is, or was, an Egyptian Throne Goddess dating back to the 5th dynasty. Her name literally means the feminine aspect of the throne - also the Queen of the throne. However, the hieroglyph for her name used originally meant (female) of flesh, i.e. mortal, and she may simply have represented deified Earthly queens of the World. She was most prominently remembered as the wife of Horus, or, in later periods, as the wife of Osiris and mother of Horus, and was worshiped as the archetypal wife and mother. Isis is the feminine archetype for creation - the goddess of fertility and motherhood. She has gone by many names, such as the 'virgin' Mary, and played many roles in history and mythology -as goddess, virgin, and female creator of life.

Isis represents the feminine aspects of life - male and female alike, for she represents creation, rebirth, reincarnation, Ascension, intuition, psychic abilities, higher frequency vibrations, love and compassion. In other words, she represents nature and all that is natural of our existence. She is the mother nurturer - the High Priestess - the Goddess of creation, and perhaps representing Eve, the first woman and mother of all.
Isis became prominent late in Egyptian history when it began to absorb the cults of many other goddesses. It eventually spread outside Egypt throughout the Middle East and Europe, with temples to her built as far away as the British Isles. Remnants of her worshipers remained in Christian Europe as late as the 6th century, when at that time, her memory was honored as the virgin mother of the Chrisitan god, Jesus.

PostPosted: Fri Jul 27, 2007 3:09 pm    Post subject: Cornucopia and the tree of knowledge? Reply with quote



Infant Jupiter drinking from the Cornucopia.

Quote:
In Greek mythology, Amalthea raised Zeus on the milk of a goat. In return Zeus gave her the goat's horn. It had the power to give to the person in possession of it whatever he or she wished for. This gave rise to the legend of the cornucopia. The original depictions were of the goat's horn filled with fruits and flowers: deities, especially Fortuna, would be depicted with the horn of plenty. More modern images, such as those used in Thanksgiving murals, depict a horn-shaped wicker basket filled with fruits and vegetables.




Quote:
Another story tells about the fifth labor of
Hercules. Hercules fought the river-god Achelous, who could take the form of either a
snake or bull. Achelous failed to defeat Hercules as a snake and changed
into a bull. Hercules ripped his horn off and diverted the river. This land became
very fertile, and is a reference to the horn of plenty. Then the Naiads took the horn,
consecrated it, and filled it with fragrant flowers. In the Roman version it was the
Goddess Abundantia who adopted the horn and called it "Cornucopia".

Quote:
Mercury assisted her and gave her a ram, with a golden fleece, on which she set the two children, trusting that the ram would convey them to a place of safety. The ram vaulted into the air with the children on his back, taking his course to the east, till when crossing the strait that divides Europe and Asia, the girl, whose name was Helle, fell from his back into the sea, which from her was called the Hellespont--now the Dardanelles. The ram continued his career till he reached the kingdom of Colchis, on the eastern shore of the Black Sea, where he safely landed the boy Phryxus, who was hospitably received by ∆etes, the king of the country. Phryxus sacrificed the ram to Jupiter, and gave the golden fleece to ∆etes, who placed it in a consecrated grove, under the care of a sleepless dragon.


In the legend of the Golden Fleece, The ram with wings is ridden to the other side of a great body of water or sea The golden hair is skinned from the ram with the horns attatched and hung in a tree which is guarded by a dragon.There it remained until taken by Jason. The ram became the constellation Aries.

Primavera, Sandro Botticelli, Mercury is on the left.


Quote:
Originally, from the time of Phillip the Bold, only the collar was worn on all occasions. When armor was worn the fleece was often engraved (and sometime gilt) upon the armor itself. This last was fairly common through the eigthteenth century, especialy since so many recipients were soldiers in service of the head of the order. Beginning in the early sixteenth century under Charles V, and by his decree, the Fleece alone was usually worn on ordinary occasions, suspended by a thin red ribbon, but sometimes from a black one. Phillip II of Spain favored black,

A Gaulish depiction of Mercury, now at the Carnavalet Museum in Paris.
Quote:
Less is known about the role of Odin as receiver of the dead among the more southern Germanic tribes. The Roman historian Tacitus probably refers to Odin when he talks of Mercury. The reason is that, like Mercury, Odin was regarded as Psychopompos, "the leader of souls".

Quote:
Julius Caesar wrote of Mercury being the most popular god in Britain and Gaul, regarded as the inventor of all the arts.

Wonderful Coalraker. I have been reading links from your posts for hours.


http://www.eaudrey.com/myth/satyr.htm

Pliny- "Among the mountainous districts of the eastern parts of India, in what is called the country of Catharcludi, we find the Satyr, an animal of extraordinary swiftness. They go sometimes on four feet, and sometimes walk erect; they have, also, the features of a human being."

Isidore of Seville- "The Satyrs are manikins with upturned noses; they have horns on their foreheads, and are goat-footed, such as the one St. Anthony saw in the desert. And he, being questioned, is said to have answered the servant of God, saying, "I am mortal, one of the inhabitants of the waste, whom the heathen, misled by error, worship as the Fauns and Satyrs.""

Moses with horns

When St. Jerome was translating the Bible into Latin, he got to the part where Moses descends from the mountain shining with God's light. Looking at the Hebrew texts and finding that "light" and "horns" were spelled the same way, he figured it was unbecoming for a mortal to be shining with Divine Light, and therefore the passage is translated "horns". As a result, for your viewing pleasure:
