... the Universe. Now are cosmology and cosmogony offered, much less required as subjects of study in universities; exceptions are rare and usually to be found in schools with a religious bias. Writings on cosmogony are likely to run off the pens of elderly astronomers, "born-again" physicists, and uncomfortable priests. A discipline without a method is ... with their prolonged damaging of scientific anthropology, but in the ever-present sociological process, which here demonstrated how authority in science has the same kinds of effects as it does in religion and politics - to turn attention from anomalous facts, to block inquiries, to discriminate against outsiders, and to maintain and boost reputations. These effects are normal to ...

I maintain that both Judaism and Christianity were direct continuations of this cult. I also believe that all other major world religions are a protestantation of this ancient cult which was once the only universal religion. I base this conclusion on the similarities among the myths which are common to all faiths ...
... Romans; for it is impossible that so vast an empire should be settled without God's providence. Reflect upon it, how impossible it is for your zealous observations of your religious customs to be here preserved, which are hard to be observed even when you fight with those whom you are able to conquer; and how can you then most ... to expose themselves, together with their children and wives, to be slain. At this Petronius was astonished, and pitied them, on account of the inexpressible sense of religion the men were under, and that courage of theirs which made them ready to die for it; so they were dismissed without success. 5. But on the ...

It will not do to say that man's inherent dread of the serpent led him to worship it. For serpent ... thousand monuments, tombs, and temples without some very potent reason for doing so. As the dragon-serpent thought has become fixed in every tongue and is an element in the religion of every people, no one can doubt that it once had significance. It is simply impossible for meaningless legends to defy the ravages of time, outlive the rise ...
