Serpent in Garden was Right!

Serpent in Garden was Right! 86

by TS Caladan

Wouldn’t it surprise you if the Serpent (symbol) in the Garden of Eden was quite correct about the Forbidden Apple and it turned out it was ‘Lord God’ that was very incorrect? QUOTES from my dead mother’s old White-covered Bible will be reprinted.

[Why aren’t Bible covers white in color as they should be? No, they’re BLACK on the outside. Could the color symbolize that precious history has been tampered with (changed) over thousands of years?].

The quotes used here get directly to the point. They are not taken out of context; nothing’s been ‘added or subtracted.’

The corrupt leaders of the Old Church placed a ‘curse’ at the end of ‘Revelations.’ WE, good people, cannot ‘add or subtract’ to the holy words, but THEY CAN…the dark, secretive leaders of the Church for more than a millennium. They took it upon themselves to remove plural ‘gods,’ reincarnation, higher (Eastern) teaching of JC…because it was in their devilish power (of editing) to do so; to simplify and control.

Our view of the SNAKE is completely twisted (and this author is no snake-lover or handler; simply do not like an innocent get a bad rap).

We must open our eyes to the truth that stares us in the face like Martin Luther did when he finally got to view a rare copy of the Bible in the German priesthood. His eyes beheld 95 differences between what was written in the Holy Book and what was taught by the narrow, restricted and ignorant Church of the time. Brother Martin had courage and did not ‘turn a blind eye’ to what stood right in front of him (a little like Galileo).

These are quotes from the King James, Genesis:

3/3:  “…God hath said ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.”
3/4:  “And the serpent said unto the woman, ye shall not surely die:”
3/5:  “For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.”

Before we see the concluding quote and final resolution, let’s review a bit. This is the STORY of the Garden of Eden. This is a tree in the ‘midst’ of other (symbolic) trees.

‘Lord God’ says if you eat of it or take of it YOU WILL DIE!

In Genesis 3/4, the serpent speaks and simply says:

No, you’re not going to die. In 3/5, the serpent continues and says: in fact, your eyes will be opened and you will be as ‘gods.’ (plural-G, not edited out).

There was never an ‘apple,’ only forbidden fruit which goes to show more changes and misinterpretations to the old STORY.

So, who was right here? Who told the truth and who lied? Open your eyes and make an attempt to see the truth:

3/22:  “And the Lord God said, Behold, the man is become one of us, to know good and evil: and now lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever.” 

Let’s analyze with common sense. Forget stereotypes and misinterpretations; run to your Bibles and see if there is an error here. There is not. Lord God LIED and it was the serpent that comes up ‘smelling like a rose’ with the truth (from LG’s mouth and right there on the pages). 

The ‘first couple’ was not the first couple and this was not in a real garden; it’s a Symbolic Story…that does not make sense…IF YOU LOOK AT IT.  (Truth is Eden was ATLANTIS in the real world, origin of the Egyptians and Incas).

The serpent says: you won’t die; your eyes will be opened; you’ll be as GODS and live ‘for ever.’ This was exactly what happened, as told to you by a character called ‘Lord God.’ Lord God confirms the serpent’s view and accuracy on each point in Genesis 3/22.

Did Adam and Eve die as God told them? No; a little like “children don’t play with fire.”  God’s wrong and the ‘serpent’ was indeed correct. 

In this researcher/writer’s opinion (with open eyes), the Forbidden Fruit was TECHNOLOGY: extremely present in the ancient world and the cause of so much early destruction…a perversion of Science and nothing mystical as the unscientific zealots (with closed eyes) choose to believe…because they are simple…and History was super-complicated and beyond belief of even the scientists.

How can the uncomplicated (ignorant) masses of fundamentalists ever understand if the scholars do not?  [poor snakes].

‘Gods’ is a very interesting biblical reference. Were they taking Magic Mushrooms and seeing as gods? You might seem like you lived forever and your eyes would certainly be at their widest (most open) if that were the case.

One other curious multiple god-reference is in the making (cloning) of Eve from Adam. Again, check the quote: “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness.” Three plurals: ‘us,’ ‘our’ and ‘our’ and one more confirmation of GODS (like the serpent said). This was a medical operation and the plural references were the doctors involved.

Why does Satan’s name mean “light-bearer”?

Why does Satan's name mean "light-bearer"? 93

In modern languages, Lucifer is one of the names of Satan. However, from Latin the word lucifer literally translates as “luminiferous” and comes from the words lux (“light”) and phero (“carry”). What kind of light is this that the infernal ruler carries?

The ancient Romans called the planet Venus by the word Lucifer, that is, the “morning star”, which is better than all other celestial bodies visible in the morning (as well as evening) firmament. By the way, this name is “tracing paper” from ancient Greek: the ancient Greeks called this celestial entity Phosphorus (from Φωσφόρος – “carrying light”).

Lucifer means ‘that which brings light’. From φῶς (phôs, “light”) +‎ -φόρος (-phóros, “bearing”), from φέρω (phérō, “I carry”).

Why did the name of the star become the name of Satan? This happened as a result of “translation difficulties”. The Bible, in the Book of Isaiah, contains a prophecy about the death of the Babylonian king – a terrible enemy of the ancient Jews. It looks like this:

“… You fell from the sky, morning star, son of the dawn! He crashed to the ground, trampling on the peoples. “

“Morning star” and “son of the dawn” here are nothing more than magnificent oriental titles of the ruler. When Jerome of Stridonsky, the first translator of the Bible into Latin, translated this passage, he translated the Hebrew word הֵילֵל (“heylel”, “morning star”) as lucifer, because that is how the morning star was called in Latin.

However, Christians, contemporaries of Jerome, associated this passage not with the king of Babylon – the embodiment of evil for the ancient Israelites, but with their enemy – Satan. And the word “lucifer”, which was just the title of the Babylonian king, began to write with a capital letter. So the innocuous name of the star became a terrible hellish name.

Jerome’s other translation error led to an amusing misunderstanding. In the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, European artists and sculptors depicted Moses – the main biblical prophet … with horns on his head! Why?

The Bible says that when Moses came down from Mount Sinai, his face was radiant. In Hebrew, the words “ray” and “horn” are similar. So Jerome got it: “His face became horny because God spoke to him.”

There is a man on Earth who makes caves: you will be amazed when you see what has done alone after 25 years

There is a man on Earth who makes caves: you will be amazed when you see what has done alone after 25 years 97

Everyone has their own hobbies. Some are passionate about collecting, others are gardening, and still others are passionate about sports. But the hero of this article has a special passion. Ra Paulette is an American sculptor from New Mexico who burrows into hillsides and caves to create intricate artistic spaces within mountains. Maybe he is now the only one in the world.

You might think that he is a professional architect or sculptor, but no, it’s just that this person has a hobby. Although talent is undoubtedly present, he creates real works of art, sculpts caves like shrines, like sacred places.

He describes his places of work as “a sanctuary for prayer and meditation,” while others describe his caves as works of art. The caves are decorated with “scallops, patterns, smooth curved lines, smooth cornices, crisp ledges and inlaid with stones”. Its caves attract tourists from all over the world.

He has been hiding in a cave in New Mexico, USA for 25 years and has now decided to showcase the interior of his home.

What he did to the inside of the cave is almost impossible to describe in words, as if we are entering the world of fairy tales.

In ancient times, people made dwellings in caves or dug new rooms in the sandstone, but only for the purpose of living. The works of this artist are more for soul resting.

All this beauty is made in white sandstone cliffs just an hour from Santa Fe. Has anyone from you seen this beauty in real?

Tired of the whims of his bosses and customers, the artist, who was bored with art, began his personal and independent project.

The results of the project, as well as the process itself, are very impressive. Ra Paulette, who spent the last 25 years in the cave, completely alone, apart from his dog, away from society, spent time carving out walls.

He spent his time carving the sandstone cave he found, transforming it into a wonderful underground space full of light.

Paulette created different designs and styles for each cave, giving each one a distinct quality and texture.

The goal of this gigantic piece of art is to create an environment that inspires “spiritual renewal and personal well-being.” It will also serve as a venue for artistic events when its project is completed.
Ra Paulette works exclusively with hand tools, a pick and a shovel. First, he digs in various halls and vaults in any form, not forgetting about ventilation. The artist himself called his style – “dances of the digger” . When he likes what he gets, then he proceeds directly to creativity: decorates the halls and vaults with mysterious carvings and patterns.

In some places, his works look like real natural caves, and in other – like a completely civilized housing

Ra Paulette Cave
That is, you can wander and relax there.

When Ra Paulette made his first cave, it attracted connoisseurs of beauty and tourists. But it was made on state land and, in addition, he could not guarantee the safety of visitors. The cave had to be filled up.

Only later, when he began to make safe projects and all legal issues were met, it was possible to create endlessly. At the moment, 15 underground palaces exist for sure.

A documentary film “Cave digger” was even made about him and this man became even more famous.

In the video below, you can virtually take a trip through one of the caves decorated by the artist.


We can only be surprised by such people who just alone create beauty with which, we become kinder and better beings.

Sacred Mount Meru: home of the gods and center of the universe

Sacred Mount Meru: home of the gods and center of the universe 103

According to Hindu records, Christians believe that the earth is the center of the universe. In contrast to this belief, the Hindus consider Mount Meru as the universal center and home of their gods.

In the eyes of the Hindus, Mount Meru is quite large, its height is about 84,000 yojanas (about 1,082,000 km). Since Hindu and other Eastern religions idolize Meru, it seems to them that the sun and all the planets of the solar system revolve around it.

According to Jain mythology, Meru is surrounded by two suns, two moons and two “sets” of stars. When some of them are in sight, others hide in the shadow of a mountain, which they believe is about 100,000 yojanas wide.

For the Hindus, Meru is the axis of the earth. Without it, the planet will not be able to rotate. In addition, they see the mountain as the home of the gods, with their kingdoms spread across all of its inconceivable height.

Followers of each of these important gods travel to these heavenly realms to rest and await their next reincarnation.

For the Javanese, Mount Meru contributed to the origin of the island of Java. According to their legends, Batara’s guru ordered Brahma and Vishnu to fill the island with people. At that time the island of Java roamed and was not tied to any solid land. To stop the movement, the gods moved a part of the sacred mountain from India and attached it to Java. This new anchor was Mount Semeru, now the highest volcano in Java.

For Buddhists, the importance of Mount Meru also lies in their belief that it is the center of the universe. Unlike the Hindu version, Buddhists believe that the mountain was surrounded by a body of water and believe in 31 levels of life on Meru.

Since Mount Meru is the ecumenical center and sacred site, many mythological characteristics are attributed to it. First, it is so high that the mountain touches the sky, and the pole star shines directly above the mountain, giving it a sacred appearance. Secondly, it is said that the Ganges comes to the mountain as one river, and, having reached Meru, is divided into 4 separate rivers.

Third, there are 4 cities filled with residents, one on each side of the mountain. Ancient myths say that these inhabitants constantly see the sun at its zenith, and they always work. The sun rises and sets only for those who do not live on the mountain.

In addition, there is one lord of the heavens, God Indra, and he lives at the top. There are also four heavenly kings on Mount Meru, one on each side. The mountain extends to Jambudwip, which itself is divided into 4 continents. The southern continent is where Buddha was born and his teachings are followed here.

Many famous Hindu, Jain and Buddhist temples were built as symbolic images of this mountain. The basis of the style is a characteristic feature of Chinese pagodas.

Although ancient Buddhists believed that the mountain was real, European visitors began to express other thoughts about the earth, which contradicted the Buddha’s teachings about Meru. Modern Buddhist scholars have decided that this is an allegorical story, and not a description of a real mountain.

However, many Buddhists still refuse to change their beliefs about the sacred mountain. For them, belief in the existence of Meru is the same as belief in Buddha.

If you plunge into reality, Mount Meru is a volcano located 70 kilometers west of Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, 4562.13 meters high.
