Racism in Israel: When, And Why, Ha•lâkh•âh Went Dark

Racism as an example I started from the earliest times, checking to find when things first went awry.

Likewise, , the facts lead me to dismiss…

Anthropomorphism Of Ancient Animal Sacrifices

I’ve recently spent time resolving the cognitive dissonance of apparent anthropomorphism in Biblical animal sacrifices; and the twice weaning of Israel from an anthropomorphic temple, the second time being permanently invalidated by the loss of the yō•khas•inꞋ.

Egyptologists haven’t figured out yet: Why Pharaohs Were Buried Under Pyramids With Built-In Chapel

Egyptologists haven’t yet figured out why Pharaohs built pyramids, why Pharaohs were buried under their pyramids, nor why a chapel was built-in it. Once the Egyptian myths of “spirit gods” in “Sacred Mountains” and false doors with emerging spirit-gods are understood, the answer becomes straightforward: The pharaohs’ mummies were understood as divine seeds, planted under…

Religion: Out of the Dark Ages Into Real-World Light

Latest Update (correction/clarification) 2019.02.14 Why? The Answer! I read and contemplate, therefore I exist as a sentient. My 5 senses perceive external influences upon me.

This Extra-universe Prime Cause is…
