Aphrodite

The Greek goddess of love, beauty, pleasure, and procreation

To some Christians Aphrodite is the Whore of Babylon, but as with many ancient Greek deities, there is more than one story about her origins. According to Hesiod’s Theogony, she was born when Cronus cut off Uranus’s genitals and threw them into the sea, and she arose from the sea foam (aphros).

According to Homer’s Iliad, she is the daughter of Zeus and Dione. According to Plato (Symposium 180e), the two were entirely separate entities: Aphrodite Ourania and Aphrodite Pandemos.

Aphrodite may be a derivation of Ashtaroth and the goddess Astarte and another story says Aphrodite arose from Semiramis the warrior queen who became known as the Babylonian “Ishtar” which is

Global Genocide List

Atrocities at the behest of emotion and reason

Genocide takes many forms and represents humankind’s incapacity to be human and a degree of inhumanity towards one’s fellow man that is beyond the understanding of the rational mind.

Genocides take many forms, at one level there is an aversion to a neighbouring community and the development of aggression followed in some cases by complete extermination.

In addition to total genocides where entire populations are reduced near to zero, the art of cultural genocide continues today as Christianity for instance attempts to replace scientific paganism and other cultural practices as does its offshoot Islam that will happily commit genocide as it does in Kashmir and Myanmar.

This is only a partial

Dealing to Our Trash

An element destroying our habitat

This subject is a no-brainer. If we are going to want stuff, it should do what we want and last a lifetime. If we think of our most basic requirements for life the land we depend on for growing our food should be kept in pristine condition yet every year we are dumping millions of tons of harmful chemicals into our soils for short-term increased production and ease of management.

Our cell phones and electronic devices are one of the most contentious issues because the manufacturers what you to buy a new device every year and discard the old which has a finite life. This was exacerbated by Apple who were accused of rolling

Redefining Law

Ideas to save our world

Some of us take time out to reflect on who we are but most are so firmly bound to the wheel of samsara, the illusion of life by their karma that they do not take time or even have time to reflect. This was probably also the case in the most ancient of times when all effort went into survival with momentary time out for recreation and pleasure.

The earliest known laws are encoded within the Rig Veda then further expanded and refined by Manu, the first known lawgiver who is thought to have lived somewhere between 5000 and 3000 BC. “The Law Code of Manu, has more than 2500 laws, although about 1000

A New Paradigm in Law

An ancient rational to be revived

From part one

In part one I have given an overview of how the law has been corrupted to serve the rich and powerful at the expense of not only the people but of continued human existence and life on earth therefore a new paradigm in law is way overdue. I don’t expect these ideas will be a more successful than attempts to save the Amazon rainforest or the Great Barrier Reef yet these ideas must be expressed and perhaps at some point before we go extinct some of the rich and powerful may find their social consciences awakening to the reality that is looking them in the face.

The ultimate prize in

26000 YO Vishnu Idol

An ancient mystery

It is generally thought that the first gold manufacturing took place around 7000 BC in the vicinity of the Black sea. While we are discovering that Hindu culture indeed extends back to this time the claim regarding this discovery turns history even more on its head.

The following article is from ajitvadakayil.blogspot and it also appears on many other websites. It is generally thought that gold was worked before copper and bronze but you can do further research and decide for yourself.

The narrative – italics mine:

A heavy chest containing a 47 gram metal alloy idol was given to CIA officials for safekeeping at Lo Monthang (called “Mustang, northern Nepal” in

Revising the Official Hindu History

An urgent need for the well-being of ALL nations

Most people consider that it’s important to know one’s past and to know one’s ancestry because that knowledge provides insights into one’s nature from which we can more clearly determine our reason for being and place in the universe.

Without knowing one’s history, any individual is left in a kind of vacuum, a state of limbo of not knowing. In our recent past the archaeological and historical explorers conjectured that modern humans developed independently in different regions. The Africans in Africa, the Asians in Asia and the Europeans in Europe as independent human species that next giving rise to the variety of peoples in the world today.

This theory was then

A Cronology of Hindu History

Re-Writing the narrative from emerging discoveries

Like many people seeking to know the truth of our existence I have questioned the historic narrative handed down to us through various governmental agencies tainted by religious and other belief systems. It comes down to a question of believing what might be true without evidence and seeking to find out what is true based on tangible evidence.

The Western, patriarchal capitalist point of view dominates the world and anyone would have to be pretty stupid to not see that the associated political structures are rotten to the core. They say nice things but do dastardly deeds in the name of power and profits. Conversely in the east and by East I mean east

Lord Ram in Mesopotamia

Proving the antiquity of Hindu Civilisation

The Ramayana is one of India’s epic books and lord Rama, a man known for his honour, faith and tenacity has been suggestively and now proven falsely dated by scholars’ to anywhere between the 7th to 4th centuries BCE. Some even attempt a date even as late as the 3rd century CE based loosely on interpretations of texts and archaeology, but there is steadily growing evidence calling these suppositions into question.

Modern researchers are learning a controversial and more accurate history, that Hindu history is far older with the Mahabharata now dated to around 6000 BC which provides context for regional travel, trade and further dating of the Hindu narrative as

In Search of Ancient India

Most archaeologists and researchers because of the Christian tradition that the world only began some 4000 years back have limited dating two Indian history to within the past 5000 years yet there is evidence of human habitation and our ancestor’s going back some 2 million years.

Stepping forward into more modern times at the end of the last ice age, we begin to see signs of civilisation in India predating Egypt and Greece, and perhaps predating all civilisations as many researchers now contend. Nilesh Oak’s thesis relies heavily on Astro archaeology as astronomy was a science the ancient Indian’s were well versed in periods not only that, within that antic traditions, the
