Rodger ....I do understand the argument that Freemasons don't understand your history
It seems their myth or their legend ...they have tried to convince their constituents
that the Templars played a part in their history
I get it
the whole thing is a myth
but many Freemasons believe this myth and are conducting rituals and giving levels names
Its on the Scottish Rites stairshttp://www.bilderberg.org/msteps1.jpg
at the very top is ORDER OF THE KNIGHT TEMPLAR
and interesting enough Leo XIII deemed it necessary to ban Catholics from being of the order
De Molay would have to smile when he saw United States with so many Freemasons signing the Declaration of Independence
for Religious freedom
Do you see the Power of Myth and Legend?
The Templars Myth continues
The Goat of MendesThe Goat of Mendes
Ptah the Egyptian God of Magick, knowledge and wisdom (an alias of Satan) *became* the goat, and sometimes a ram in the city of Mendes where he was worshipped as such. The Goat/Ram of Mendes represented the "Ba" which was the Egyptian word for the "soul." Ptah was considered to be a great magician and "Lord of the Serpents."¹
Goat (Capricorn) is the time of the winter solstice, known as "The Southern Gate of the Sun."
“The Goat was known in early Babylonian times as the God ‘Ea
Ea was known as ‘He of vast intellect and Lord of the Sacred Eye’ protector of his people and the bringer and giver of knowledge and civilization to humanity. Represented as a snake, he ended up in the ‘Garden of Eden as the Snake in the tree of life, encouraging learning and knowledge rather than blissful ignorance.’ Whenever Ea roamed the Earth, he took the form of a goat. Ea was considered the Father of Light" and his celebrations dating back to 15,000 B.C.E., were carried out wearing goat skins.
Egyptian ammon Mendes
Amun was the chief of the Egyptian Gods. He was identified with the accomplishments of the Pharoahs, after the defeat of the Hyksos rulers of Egypt. The Hyksos rulers were viewed as oppressors of the people, therefore Amun was known as the protector of the poor and less fortunate. The Pharoahs built lavish temples in his honor. Eventually, Amun became identified with Ra, the sun God, and thus became known as Amun-Ra.
he word Amun or Ammon comes from the Egyptian amoni meaning 'shepherd' or 'to feed.' Or, it may have meant "the hidden."
