  • Abortion and the Ancient Practice of Child Sacrifice
    • Abortion on demand is the Baal worship of modern times. King Ahab and Queen Jezebel led the Israelites in Baal worship and the sacrifice of children in the Old Testament. Ahaz went so far as to burn "his son as an offering" to Baal/Moloch, as did Manasseh (see 2 Kings 16:3; 21:6). Why would people make such terrible decisions? It was believed that human sacrifice to Baal held the key to prosperity. People desiring to live in selfish prosperity and ease brought their firstborn child to the high priest, where the child would be offered as a burnt offering to the deity. The altar of Baal was in the image of a bull with the head and shoulders of a man. Its arms extended outward and fire belched out from a hole in the chest. The priest of Baal placed the babies on the outstretched arms, where the child would be rolled into the fire. As the child died, the priest and priestess engaged in sexual intercourse, while an orgy occurred among the onlookers. A Baal cemetery unearthed recently contained the remains of more than twenty thousand children. The Greek author Kleitarchos described this practice of sacrificing infants to Baal three hundred years before Christ: "Out of reverence for Kronos [Baal], the Phoenicians, and especially the Carthaginians, whenever they seek to obtain some great favor, vow one of their children, burning it as a sacrifice to the deity, if they are especially eager to gain success. There stands in their midst a bronze statue of Kronos, its hands extended over a bronze brazier, the flames of which engulf the child. When the flames fall on the body, the limbs contract and the open mouth seems almost to be laughing, until the contracted body slips quietly into the brazier."

[edit] Hermes

  • Various notes:
    • Hermes is one of the twelve Olympian gods (the "Dodekatheon"), which were the principal gods of the Greek pantheon, residing atop Mount Olympus. Hermes was the god of boundaries and of the travelers who cross them, of shepherds and cowherds, of thieves and road travelers, of orators and wit, of literature and poets, of athletics, of weights and measures, of invention, of general commerce, and of the imagineing of thieves and liars. His symbols include the tortoise (patience/time/wisdom?), the rooster (sun symbolism/primordial intellect), the winged sandals (spiritual/enlightenment), and the caduceus (priesthood magic). The analogous Roman deity is Mercury. [1] (adapted)
    • In Etruscan mythology, Turms was the equivalent of Greek Hermes, god of trade and the messenger god between people and gods.
    • In Roman mythology, Mercury was a messenger, and a god of trade, profit and commerce, the son of Maia Maiestas and Jupiter. His name is related to the Latin word merx ("merchandise"; compare merchant, commerce, etc.).

[edit] Prometheus

  • Various notes:
    • See also: Prometheus Bound
    • This statue depicts Prometheus, a Titan of Greek mythology known for his great intelligence. He has however betrayed the god Zeus by stealing fire and giving it to mankind. He therefore credited to have taught mankind the arts of civilization such as writing, mathematics, agriculture, medicine, and science. Zeus then punished Prometheus for his crime by having him bound to a rock while a great eagle ate his liver every day only to have it grow back to be eaten again the next day.[2]

[edit] Pan

  • Various notes:
    • Pan (Greek Πάν, genitive Πανός) is the Greek god of shepherds and flocks, of mountain wilds, hunting and rustic music: paein means to pasture. He has the hindquarters, legs, and horns of a goat, in the same manner as a faun or satyr. He is recognized as the god of fields, groves, and wooded glens; because of this, Pan is connected to fertility and season of spring.
    • Pan's ancient Roman equivalent was Faunus, and they were both horned god deities. For this reason he is popular among many Neopagans and occultic groups.
    • "It is likely that the demonized images of the incubus and even the horns and cloven hooves of Satan, as depicted in much medieval and post-medieval Christian literature and art, were taken from the images of Pan." [3]

[edit] Incubus

  • Various notes:
    • In Western medieval legend, an incubus (plural incubi) is a demon in male form supposed to lie upon sleepers, especially women, in order to have sexual intercourse with them. It was believed to do this in order to spawn other incubi. The incubus drains energy from the woman on whom it performs sexual intercourse in order to sustain itself,
