A List Of Gods Throughout History

Throughout history human beings have believed in gods—thousands of them. And just as past cultures—many great and lasting civilizations—have all but slipped from our memory, so have the gods they worshiped. It's mind-boggling how many gods people came up with throughout the ages. And it's also mind-boggling how people today seem to think that everyone has always believed in the Christian version of their god.

Acquaint yourselves with the fact: as humans change, so do their gods.



While today's dominant religions fixate on (and wage wars over) a few prominent deities, we would be wise to remember that billions of people from past centuries believed in—and devoted their lives to—entirely different gods. When civilizations lost their dominance, collapsed and were eventually overshadowed by others, so the gods they worshipped died out, and lost their relevance. If these deities are remembered in the present at all, they are thought only to be quaint relics of a distant, more primitive people.



This fact, perhaps more than any other, demonstrates that gods are human inventions, and live only so long as groups bound by common belief survive. Gods live solely in the minds of men and women, and are conjured up to serve very human personal and political needs.



Consider the following compilation of gods in whom people have believed over the course of human history. By no means an exhaustive list, it nevertheless serves as a reminder that gods have always been, and continue to be, human creations.





Here is the list: Global Gods | Machines Like Us




"The day will come when the mystical generation of Jesus, by the Supreme Being as his father, in the womb of a virgin, will be classed with the fable of the generation of Minerva in the brain of Jupiter." ~ THOMAS JEFFERSON 1823

You can present a thousand FALSE GODS. Reason and Logic and would dictate that not all of them can be the One and Only God of Creation....but then again reason and logic would also dictate that simply because 999 false Gods exist, those 999 do not and cannot preclude the one and only God of Creation from existing, because there is only ONE TRUTH. Thus far, over a 3500 year period, not one Truth found to exist in the Holy Bible has been debunked by Physical Science or History Actual.



The argument that you are making is "negative" in nature and is based upon the subjective instead of the Objective and Testable. That's like saying because no archaeological evidence has been found after thousands of years to support the existence of Moses....that which is NOT FOUND debunks the objective evidence that is found in the history of the Holy Bible which is documented and dated to have been drafted over several millennium by at least 3 dozen authors from different backgrounds. Simply because archaeologists have not located the ancient City of "Baal Zephon" mentioned in the history of the Exodus crossing of the Red Sea....does not mean that City never existed. Its NEGATIVE, you cannot debunk or dismiss anything by evidence that does not exist to test.



What would preclude the God of Creation from existing even if there are thousands of False gods? Nothing. Because some religions have been debunked as false...this makes all religions false? Say if you have a pit bull dog that bites, does that that mean that because I have the same breed of dog that my does also bites? Of course not because there are to many variables that are never considered or placed to the test of Objective, Observable, Reproducible experimentations, like the actual character and physical nature of MY DOG.



All Christian faith found to exist is created and built only in one place, the Holy Scriptures, "..faith cometh by hearing and hearing by the word of God" -- Romans 16:10. If you want to debunk the existence of the God of Creation, debunk His self professed handy work....the Holy Scriptures. Presenting other false religions debunks nothing but the other false religions. There is no guilt or innocence by nomenclature. First you must DEBUNK that system of words used in the Discipline of Christianity in order to DEBUNK GOD. The Holy Bible is very Objective and Testable by both Physical Science and History Actual in the majority of its scriptures...yet the scriptures that are testable have never been subject to debunking as the truth they profess to be. The prima facie evidence then suggests that the passages that are not testable because no physical evidence has been found are then also true simply because where the scriptures are testable they always fall on the side of truth.

We Are the Ones

We've Been Waiting For

You have been telling the people that this is the Eleventh Hour.



Now you must go back and tell the people that this is The Hour.



And there are things to be considered:



Where are you living?



What are you doing?



What are your relationships?



Are you in right relation?



Where is your water?



Know your garden.



It is time to speak your Truth.



Create your community. Be good to each other. And do not look outside yourself for the leader.
This could be a good time!



There is a river flowing now very fast. It is so great and swift that there are those who will be afraid. They will try to hold on to the shore. They will feel they are being torn apart, and they will suffer greatly.



Know the river has its destination. The elders say we must let go of the shore, push off into the middle of the river, keep our eyes open, and our heads above the water. See who is in there with you and celebrate.



At this time in history, we are to take nothing personally. Least of all, ourselves. For the moment that we do, our spiritual growth and journey comes to a halt.



The time of the lone wolf is over. Gather yourselves!



Banish the word struggle from your attitude and your vocabulary.



All that we do now must be done in a sacred manner and in celebration.



We are the ones we've been waiting for.

Friends,

The Hopi Native Americans of the American Southwest have an ancient prophecy that has long foreseen the destruction of our present world through a purification by fire. You will know the times for this purification are at hand when a series of prophecies known as the “final warnings” are fulfilled.



The first set of warnings were meant to alert the Hopi elders of a future time when the purification of the world was at hand; after which, they were expected to break their silence and warn the world of a second set of predictions hastening the onset of the purification of the world by fire.



Here is the first set of warnings:



THE WARNING: An iron horse will come to the land of the red man.

THE FULFILLMENT: This is the train. It appeared in the 19th century



THE WARNING: The white man will raise metal wires into the skies.

THE FULFILLMENT: These are telegraph lines of the 19th and later the power lines of the 20th century.



THE WARNING: Cobwebs will crisscross the skies.

THE FULFILLMENT: These are the contrails of planes and jets.



THE WARNING: The powers of the red, the swastika, and the sun will threaten turtle island.

THE FULFILLMENT: North America seen from space looks like the outline of a turtle. (Do not ask me how pre-Columbian seers knew that.) In World War II and in the Cold War that followed, these three “powers” did threaten North America. The swastika of the Nazis and later the “red” forces of the Communists of Russia and China beset Turtle Island. The powers of the sun did directly scorch the earth of native lands when the white man tested his atomic bombs in Nevada and New Mexico near the Hopi sacred lands in Arizona.



THE WARNING: The white man will create a Gourd of Ashes that will lay waste to the land and keep it infertile for generations.

THE FULFILLMENT: These are atomic bombs. Radiation is the sterilizing plague.



THE WARNING: The fulfillment of this first set of signs will warrant the Hopi Elders end their long silence and spread their prophetic message that the great purification is at hand. They will share their message and their wisdom to the people of the world so that everyone could prepare or soften its blow upon the earth.

THE FULFILLMENT: Indeed over 50 years ago, the Hopi Elders agreed that the first wave of signs had all been fulfilled. They therefore began warning the world about the prophecies of a coming purification. Some of the elders, such as Thomas Banyaca, have explained the prophecies on national television and spoke before the entire delegation of the United Nations.



Now comes the second set of final warnings:



THE WARNING: A tribe of red hat and red cloaked people would come in great numbers from the East, traveling through the air. They would colonize the Western American lands and then scatter and disappear.

THE FULFILLMENT: The Tibetans came calling on the Hopi Elders when the first three precursory signs in their own 1,200 year old prophecy concerning the transplantation of their religion to America were fulfilled.



This prophecy coming from Padmasambhava, the founder of Tibetan Buddhism, says, “When the iron bird flies (airplanes) and the horse runs on wheels (cars), the Tibetan people will be scattered like ants across the face of the Earth, and the Dharma will come to the land of the red men.”



Since the 1970s, the Dalai Lama and a number of marooned robed priests fulfilled Hopi prophecy by regularly paying a visit to the Hopi elders and moving on. Many Hopi’s also believe a later visitation in the 1980s of red cloaked and capped followers of Bhagwan Rajneesh coming in their thousands to Eastern Oregon completes the prophecy. Even a handful of Rajneeshees, aware of the prophecy, paid a visit to the Hopi elder-in-chief, Grandfather David Monongye, in 1985, before they and their fellow red clothed travelers soon vanished from sight. I report on this meeting in detail in my book Messiahs: The Visions and Prophecies for the Second Coming.



THE WARNING: The white man will steal rocks from the moon. This is a danger sign, that we are in the final days before the purification.

THE FULFILLMENT: The Apollo moon landings unearthed (or should I say “un-mooned?”) hundreds of pounds of moon rocks, taking them back to Earth. Indeed I saw one sitting under glass in the United Nations, just outside the main theater where the Hopi Elders shared their prophecies to the full United Nations delegation just a few years before.



THE WARNING: The white man will build a permanent house in the sky. This is the final warning before the purification.

THE FULFILLMENT: MIR may have blazed its way down to the sea in fragments, but the far more permanent International Space Station traverses our skies today. It will be fully operational in a few more years. One could argue that it is already operational and therefore the times of the purification have come.

Hopi Prophecy: We are the Ones!

The river is a metaphor for the fast, white water currents of our present times in this new millennium. The call to abandon “the shore” we know and flow down the current of a unknown destiny is a common theme in the Hopi purification prophecy. I have heard the elders put it in another metaphorical way: people will “drop dead from their own fear of change” if they do not embrace the coming changes. Those people who can not only embrace change but celebrate their journey into an unknown and new millennium will greatly benefit from the coming purification of the world. Certainly the call to celebrate life — and make every one of life’s simple actions sacred — is a common message shared by the Hopi with those modern mystics and prophets like Adi Da, Gurdjieff, or Osho. All of them promote a vision of a new humanity coming that transcends its past attachments through meditation and celebration of life.



Happy floating down the unknown river to you all!

Acquaint yourselves with the fact: as humans change, so do their gods.


The Firm - Live In Peace (live) - YouTube

Early in the morning
Just as the sun was rising
came without a warning
the sound of the uprising

Gunfire in the streets
Women and children crying
The crush of marching feet
Men and young boys dying

Why can’t we live in peace

We live in the troubled times
The shadow of annihilation
Troubles every mind
And chills the heart of every nation

Darkness fills the night
She tries to steal your soul away

Killing in the sunlight
She spreads the shadow through the day

Why can’t we live in peace
Why can we have no release

You and I we don’t know why
So many people cry
You and I we don’t understand
The war like ways of men

Why can’t we live in peace
Why can we have no release
