I disagree...







Sumer "land of the civilized lords" or "native land" was a civilization and historical region in southern Mesopotamia, modern Iraq during the Chalcolithic and Early Bronze Age.

Sumer was first settled between 4500 and 4001 BC by a non-Semitic people who possibly did not speak the Sumerian language (as evidenced by names of cities, rivers, basic occupations, etc.). These people are now called proto-Euphrateans or Ubaidians,and had evolved from the Samarra culture of northern Mesopotamia.The Ubaidians were the first civilizing force in Sumer, draining the marshes for agriculture, developing trade, and establishing industries, including weaving, leatherwork, metalwork, masonry, and pottery.

Sumer was also the site of early development of writing, progressing from a stage of proto-writing in the mid 4th millennium BC to writing proper in the third millennium (see Jemdet Nasr period).

You are confusing, General Masonry and the [Arrius]Aristocratic Form of "Masonry", the Craft of Constructing a Religion, for Imperial and Slavery Reasons.

Akhenaten Established One of the Earliest, Imperial Religion, note that "Monotheistic Religions" are In fact correctly called "IMPERIAL Religions", you see, "Akhenaten" established the worship of "Aten", not as Sun-Worship, but SELF-Worship, Akhenaten called HIMself ATEN, the Image(akhen) of Aten(God), This is likely the origin of "Image of God", his Successors would bear the title "Son of Aten", The mass did not like this, and they reverted to Amen.

People, don't realize, that the same thing had occurred in Rome in 42BC, after death of Caesar

Quote:
It formally deified Caesar as Divus Iulius in 42 BC, and Caesar Octavian henceforth became Divi filius ("Son of a god").[94] Because Caesar's clemency had resulted in his murder, the Second Triumvirate reinstated the practice of proscription, abandoned since Sulla.[95] It engaged in the legally-sanctioned murder of a large number of its opponents to secure funding for its forty-five legions in the second civil war against Brutus and Cassius.[96] Antony and Octavius defeated them at Philippi.[97]
CAESAR was Elevated to the Status of GOD, an Imperial-Monothesitc Style Religion, which became the Foundation for Christianity and Islam.

The Jewish Mass, refused to worship Caesar, thus, they PACIFIED them,by creating Christianity, worshipping the Piso-Caesars under the alias of Jesus

The Jewish mass did not follow Christianity... only a minority converted to Christianity later...seeing Christ was Jewish/Buddhist/Pharaoh/Essene or whatever, because official history does not paint a clear picture of the christ...and some even say Christ was the son of Cleopatra...


Maybe you are getting confused with this fellow below...

Constantine the Great (Latin: Flavius Valerius Aurelius Constantinus Augustus; c. 27 February 272 – 22 May 337), also known as Constantine I or Saint Constantine, was Roman Emperor from 306 to 337. Well known for being the first Roman emperor to convert to Christianity, Constantine and co-Emperor Licinius issued the Edict of Milan in 313, which proclaimed religious tolerance of all religions throughout the empire.

As the emperor who used Christianity to empower his government throughout the Roman Empire and moved the capital to the banks of the Bosporus, Constantine was a ruler of major historical importance, but he has always been a controversial figure. The fluctuations in Constantine's reputation reflect the nature of the ancient sources for his reign. These are abundant and detailed, but have been strongly influenced by the official propaganda of the period, and are often one-sided

Constantine was In Fact also a PISO, descending from the Flavians and the Caesar's, as well as "Arrius Piso" himself, twice over.


Constantine the Great
(Latin: Flavius Valerius Aurelius Constantinus Augustus)

1. Flavius - [Titus Flavius Sabinus/Vespasian]
2. Aurelius [ His Great-Great-Great Grandfather was "Marcus Aurelius]
3. Augustus [also. above]

Lightbulb The Merovingians

For readers of The Biggest Secret the following will prove extremely interesting...

The Merovingians...

This bloodline and its offshoots includes a long line of pharaohs in ancient Egypt, including Rameses II (1295-1228 BC), who is considered to be the greatest pharaoh of all...

This key bloodline comes down through the most famous Egyptian queen, Cleopatra (60-30BC), who married the most famous Roman Emperor, Julius Caesar, and bore him a son, who became Ptolemy XIV.

She also bore twins with Mark Anthony, who has his own connections to this line and its many offshoots

This bloodline also connects to Herod the Great, the "Herod" of the Jesus stories, and continues to the Roman Piso family

The same bloodline includes Constantine the Great, the Roman Emperor who, in 325AD, turned Christianity, based on his ancestors' stories, into the religion we know today

More than that, the most used version of the Bible was commissioned and sponsored by another strand in the same bloodline, King James 1st of England.

Just a coincidence, nothing to worry about! The line of James, according to genealogy sources listed below, can be traced back to 1550 BC and beyond and includes many Egyptian pharaohs, including Rameses II.

There is an archaic role for Persephone as the dread queen of the Underworld, whose very name it was forbidden to speak. As goddess of death she is also called a daughter of Zeus and Styx, the river that formed the boundary between Earth and the underworld...

Her central myth was the context of the secret rites of regeneration at Eleusis, which promised immortality to initiates.

GOD IS THE FATHER _ MARY IS HIS MOTHER



Titus Flavius Josephus (37CE – 100 CE)
Quote:
Livia Orestilla, or Cornelia Orestilla [1] was a Roman Empress as the second wife of the Emperor Caligula in AD 37 or 38. She was originally married to Gaius Calpurnius Piso (in particular the one involved in a conspiracy overthrow the Emperor Nero in AD 65), [1] [2] who was persuaded or forced to annul the marriage so that Caligula could marry her. According to both Dio and Suetonius, this occurred during the wedding celebrations. Suetonius claims that Caligula issued a proclamation the next day that he had acquired a new wife
Matthew 1:18
Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy
Quote:
The power-hungry Roman emperor Caligula may have believed himself to be a living god, according to new findings by archaeologists.
Ghost, Then Joseph her husband, being a just [Righteousness] [man], and not willing to make her a public example, was minded to put her away privily.
//Mary in Greek is M-ARIA//  

Matthew 1:18 Now the birth of ARRIUS PISO was on this wise: When as his mother ARRIA LIVIA  was espoused to GAIUS PISO, before they came together, she was found with child of the GOD, Then GAIUS PISO her husband, being a just [Righteousness] [man], and not willing to make her a public example, was minded to put her away privily[DIVORCED].

remember Josephus Backdates events to 30 Years, placing his own Birth of "37AD"
to "7AD", and placing his Judean Administration[MINISTRY] to "30" Years aswell

The Real Father of "Arrius Piso" was not Gaius Piso, it was CALIGULA.

Identify of Satan

An, Alias that "Arrius Piso", used was "Plutarch", or "Lucius Mestrius Plutarch"

Plutarch is two words welded together, "Pluto + Archus", the term "Archus, means Ruler", and "Pluto" is the Roman Version of "Hades", hence, the name
"Plutarch", litterally means "The Ruler of Hades", and "Hades", is the Biblical HELL, Satan is Saturn[Chronos], he is Father Time, whom as a Historian manipulates the Time-Line to create the Fictional Hero of Jesus

The First part of Plutarchs, name is "Lucius",meaning Light
The Middle part of the "Name" (MESTRIOS), The term "Trios" means "Three" and "Mes", is the shorterned form of "Hermes","Hermes" is the God of Words, Logos.

MESTRIOS = HerMES TRIsmegistOS
thrice-greatest Hermes

The THREE MAGI
-----(TRIS_MAGISTOS) are the "Thrice Greatest Hermes"



Lucius Mestrius Plutarch
(I am the Thrice Great Light of Hermes[Logos], and the Ruler of Hades)
(Since, Plutarch is the Light, He is LUCIFER) (The Giver of Light AKA LOGOS AKA The Gospels)

Thrice/Hermes = This is Because as thrice Authors "Nicomachus/Plutarch/Josephus" and wrote "Thrice" Gospels Mark-Matthew-Luke



Josephus also wrote "Discourse To The Greeks Concerning Hades", which depicts "Hades", Where the Wicked are Sent into a Pit of Fire, and that God Punished the Evil and rewards the Good, and note, that the word "Hades" is used throughout the Gospels

Quote:
An Extract Out Of Josephus's Discourse To The Greeks Concerning Hades

1. NOW as to Hades, wherein the souls of the of the good things they see, and rejoice in the righteous and unrighteous are detained, it is necessary to speak of it. Hades is a place in the world not regularly finished; a subterraneous region, wherein the light of this world does not shine; from which circumstance, that in this region the light does not shine, it cannot be but there must be in it perpetual darkness. This region is allotted as a place of custody for souls, ill which angels are appointed as guardians to them, who distribute to them temporary punishments, agreeable to every one's behavior and manners.

2. In this region there is a certain place set apart, as a lake of unquenchable fire, whereinto we suppose no one hath hitherto been cast; but it is prepared for a day afore-determined by God, in which one righteous sentence shall deservedly be passed upon all men; when the unjust, and those that have been disobedient to God, and have given honor to such idols as have been the vain operations of the hands of men as to God himself, shall be adjudged to this everlasting punishment, as having been the causes of defilement; while the just shall obtain an incorruptible and never-fading kingdom. These are now indeed confined in Hades, but not in the same place wherein the unjust are confined.

3. For there is one descent into this region, at whose gate we believe there stands an archangel with an host; which gate when those pass through that are conducted down by the angels appointed over souls, they do not go the same way; but the just are guided to the right hand, and are led with hymns, sung by the angels appointed over that place, unto a region of light, in which the just have dwelt from the beginning of the world; not constrained by necessity, but ever enjoying the prospect of the good things they see, and rejoic in the expectation of those new enjoyments which will be peculiar to every one of them, and esteeming those things beyond what we have here; with whom there is no place of toil, no burning heat, no piercing cold, nor are any briers there; but the countenance of the and of the just, which they see, always smiles them, while they wait for that rest and eternal new life in heaven, which is to succeed this region. This place we call The Bosom of Abraham.

4. But as to the unjust, they are dragged by force to the left hand by the angels allotted for punishment, no longer going with a good-will, but as prisoners driven by violence; to whom are sent the angels appointed over them to reproach them and threaten them with their terrible looks, and to thrust them still downwards. Now those angels that are set over these souls drag them into the neighborhood of hell itself; who, when they are hard by it, continually hear the noise of it, and do not stand clear of the hot vapor itself; but when they have a near view of this spectacle, as of a terrible and exceeding great prospect of fire, they are struck with a fearful expectation of a future judgment, and in effect punished thereby: and not only so, but where they see the place [or choir] of the fathers and of the just, even hereby are they punished; for a chaos deep and large is fixed between them; insomuch that a just man that hath compassion upon them cannot be admitted, nor can one that is unjust, if he were bold enough to attempt it, pass over it.

5. This is the discourse concerning Hades, wherein the souls of all men are confined until a proper season, which God hath determined, when he will make a resurrection of all men from the dead, not procuring a transmigration of souls from one body to another, but raising again those very bodies, which you Greeks, seeing to be dissolved, do not believe [their resurrection]. But learn not to disbelieve it; for while you believe that the soul is created, and yet is made immortal by God, according to the doctrine of Plato, and this in time, be not incredulous; but believe that God is able, when he hath raised to life that body which was made as a compound of the same elements, to make it immortal; for it must never be said of God, that he is able to do some things, and unable to do others. We have therefore believed that the body will be raised again; for although it be dissolved, it is not perished; for the earth receives its remains, and preserves them; and while they are like seed, and are mixed among the more fruitful soil, they flourish, and what is sown is indeed sown bare grain, but at the mighty sound of God the Creator, it will sprout up, and be raised in a clothed and glorious condition, though not before it has been dissolved, and mixed [with the earth]. So that we have not rashly believed the resurrection of the body; for although it be dissolved for a time on account of the original transgression, it exists still, and is cast into the earth as into a potter's furnace, in order to be formed again, not in order to rise again such as it was before, but in a state of purity, and so as never to he destroyed any more. And to every body shall its own soul be restored. And when it hath clothed itself with that body, it will not be subject to misery, but, being itself pure, it will continue with its pure body, and rejoice with it, with which it having walked righteously now in this world, and never having had it as a snare, it will receive it again with great gladness. But as for the unjust, they will receive their bodies not changed, not freed from diseases or distempers, nor made glorious, but with the same diseases wherein they died; and such as they were in their unbelief, the same shall they be when they shall be faithfully judged.

6. For all men, the just as well as the unjust, shall be brought before God the word: for to him hath the Father committed all judgment : and he, in order to fulfill the will of his Father, shall come as Judge, whom we call Christ. For Minos and Rhadamanthus are not the judges, as you Greeks do suppose, but he whom God and the Father hath glorified: CONCERNING WHOM WE HAVE ELSEWHERE GIVEN A MORE PARTICULAR ACCOUNT, FOR THE SAKE OF THOSE WHO SEEK AFTER TRUTH. This person, exercising the righteous judgment of the Father towards all men, hath prepared a just sentence for every one, according to his works; at whose judgment-seat when all men, and angels, and demons shall stand, they will send forth one voice, and say, JUST IS THY JUDGMENT; the rejoinder to which will bring a just sentence upon both parties, by giving justly to those that have done well an everlasting fruition; but allotting to the lovers of wicked works eternal punishment. To these belong the unquenchable fire, and that without end, and a certain fiery worm, never dying, and not destroying the body, but continuing its eruption out of the body with never-ceasing grief: neither will sleep give ease to these men, nor will the night afford them comfort; death will not free them from their punishment, nor will the interceding prayers of their kindred profit them; for the just are no longer seen by them, nor are they thought worthy of remembrance. But the just shall remember only their righteous actions, whereby they have attained the heavenly kingdom, in which there is no sleep, no sorrow, no corruption, no care, no night, no day measured by time, no sun driven in his course along the circle of heaven by necessity, and measuring out the bounds and conversions of the seasons, for the better illumination of the life of men; no moon decreasing and increasing, or introducing a variety of seasons, nor will she then moisten the earth; no burning sun, no Bear turning round [the pole], no Orion to rise, no wandering of innumerable stars. The earth will not then be difficult to be passed over, nor will it he hard to find out the court of paradise, nor will there be any fearful roaring of the sea, forbidding the passengers to walk on it; even that will be made easily passable to the just, though it will not be void of moisture. Heaven will not then be uninhabitable by men, and it will not be impossible to discover the way of ascending thither. The earth will not be uncultivated, nor require too much labor of men, but will bring forth its fruits of its own accord, and will be well adorned with them. There will be no more generations of wild beasts, nor will the substance of the rest of the animals shoot out any more; for it will not produce men, but the number of the righteous will continue, and never fail, together with righteous angels, and spirits [of God], and with his word, as a choir of righteous men and women that never grow old, and continue in an incorruptible state, singing hymns to God, who hath advanced them to that happiness, by the means of a regular institution of life; with whom the whole creation also will lift up a perpetual hymn from corruption, to incorruption, as glorified by a splendid and pure spirit. It will not then be restrained by a bond of necessity, but with a lively freedom shall offer up a voluntary hymn, and shall praise him that made them, together with the angels, and spirits, and men now freed from all bondage.

I would suggest you get more perspectives!!!!

IT doesnt matter soon it wont.
There called royal blood because there descendance of the gods.

Religions are high jacked yes...
And yes they manipulate the people.
You think the people in power have the power no the gods give it to them.
Why do you think all the great countries/Civilization of the past have wanted a one world order.Some one that rules the whole earth.
Every dictator wants to rule the world.
I wonder why?


You suggest that Jewish mythology is the end all, be all, one hundred percent truth. The nature of reality revealed. The jews have ever been, and only ever will be, in my mind, some random desert tribe from the middle east, who no longer exist, save for within a dying religion. Most jews are white for crying out loud! Even the arabic jews have no proof that they are descended from the 12 tribes of Israel. Even if they are, their ancestry is still worthless in my sight. I do not recognize the authority of their god over me. So I do not believe that christianity has the answers either. I do not understand why so much of the world thinks that the answers lie in middle eastern religions.

The teachings of Jesus where already in the works of OVID and PLATO, the
Word of Julius Caesar and the Mind of the Authors

Read OVID - good teaching in there

You could say Yoda teaching are good, but Yoda is the creation of an Author, like Yahzeus

Who Founded the Catholic Church

The Catholic Church was Founded by "Pliny The Younger" and some of Piso's sons.

Gaius Plinius Caecilius Secundus (Full name of Pliny)

In Royal language, the C and the T interchanges and C and S, an example is the term "SANTA" is actually derived from
the Roman God "SANCUS" - Sanc > Sant(a) (Santa/Saint).

The Third name of Pliny "CAECILLUS"

CAE-CILL-US
CA--THOL-IC (Catholic)

The Last name of Pliny .... SECUNDUS > SATAN

Pliny also wrote as IGNATIUS OF Antioch

IGNATIUS The name brakes down to GAIUS and INT

INT/INTUS is Latin for "Within"

INT GAIUS (Within Gaius) is an Anagram for "IGNATIUS" (Gaius Within)

He was also known as Pope Linus (PLINIUS)
He also used the Pseudonym of St PauL (PLiny) and wrote Letters under that Pen-name.

Pliny the Younger also Coined the term "CHRISTIANS" a term he used in his Pliny Letters Seven Times and in Acts 26:28 which he wrote too.

Here is a Letter wriiten by Pliny the Younger Praising the NT Author


Knowing, as I do, how much you admire the polite arts, and what satisfaction you take in seeing young men of quality pursue the steps of their ancestors, I seize this earliest opportunity of informing you that I went to day to hear Calpurnius Piso read a beautiful and scholarly production of his, entitled the Sports of Love. His numbers, which were elegiac, were tender, sweet, and flowing, at the same time that they occasionally rose to all the sublimity of diction which the nature of his subject required. He varied his style from the lofty to the simple, from the close to the copious, from the grave to the florid, with equal genius and judgment. These beauties were further recommended by a most harmonious voice; which a very becoming modesty rendered still more pleasing. A confusion and concern in the countenance of a speaker imparts a grace to all he utters; for diffidence, I know not how, is infinitely more engaging than assurance and self-sufficiency. I might mention several other circumstances to his advantage, which I am the more inclined to point out, as they are exceedingly striking in one of his age, and are most uncommon in a youth of his quality: but not to enter into a farther detail of his merit, I will only add that, when he had finished his poem, I embraced him very heartily, and being persuaded that nothing is a greater encouragement than applause, I exhorted him to go on as he had begun, and to shine out to posterity with the same glorious lustre, which was reflected upon him from his ancestors. I congratulated his excellent mother, and particularly his brother, who gained as much honour by the generous affection he manifested upon this occasion as Calpurnius did by his eloquence; so remarkable a solicitude he showed for him when he began to recite his poem, and so much pleasure in his success. May the gods grant me frequent occasions of giving you accounts of this nature! for I have a partiality to the age in which I live, and should rejoice to find it not barren of merit. I ardently wish, therefore, our young men of quality would have something else to shew of honourable memorial in their houses than the images1 of their ancestors. As for those which are placed in the mansion of these excellent youths, I now figure them to myself as silently applauding and encouraging their pursuits, and (what is a sufficient degree of honour to both brothers) as recognizing their kindred. Farewell.

Lightbulb Pisonian conspiracy

The conspiracy of Gaius Calpurnius Piso in AD 65 represented one of the major turning points in the reign of the Roman emperor Nero (54–68). The plot signified the growing discontent among the upper social strata of the Roman state with regards to Nero's increasingly despotic leadership, and as a result is a significant event in the road towards his eventual suicide, and the chaos that followed.


Gaius Calpurnius Piso, a renowned Roman statesman, literary benefactor, and orator, intended to have Nero assassinated with the goal of having himself declared Emperor of Rome by the imperial bodyguard, known as the Praetorian Guard. He enlisted the aid of several prominent senators, equestrians, and soldiers with a loosely conceived plan in which Faenius Rufus—joint prefect of the Praetorian Guard with Ofonius Tigellinus—would conduct Piso to the Praetorian Camp for a formal declaration by the Guard. The conspirators were said to have varying motives; some were imperialists and others were pro-republic. According to the ancient historian Tacitus, the ringleaders included Subrius Flavus, a tribune of the Praetorian court, and the centurion Sulpicius Asper, who helped Piso spawn the scheme (Pagán 73)

The freedman Milichus later discovered the conspiracy and reported it to Nero's secretary, Epaphroditos, after his wife convinced him to do so (Pagán 85). After the conspiracy was revealed, Nero ordered Piso and its leaders to commit suicide. The philosopher Seneca, the poet Marcus Annaeus Lucanus, and the satirist Petronius were also implicated in the plot and dealt with in a similar fashion. Gaius Stern has identified a relevant, little known passage, Plutarch Moralia 505C, which adds a story not told in Tacitus. A conspirator, in passing a condemned prisoner, urged him to have hope, dropping a comment that indicated all would change soon (because Nero would be dead). Instead of silently taking heart, the prisoner revealed the conversation to Nero, the conspirator was tortured, and the plot was betrayed...The Piso brothers' parents were implicated in a charge of treason and forced to commit suicide.

Roman Piso, can you give your thoughts on how the Loch Ness Monster might fit in to all this?
