Satanist Group Proposes 19th C Horned-Goat Monument for Oklahoma Capitol

As Don Armes, Republican member of the Oklahoma House of Representatives, crowed to the Associated Press: “I think we need to be tolerant of people who think different than us, but this is Oklahoma, and that’s not going to fly here.”

Baphomet bless America.

Disenchantment and Materialism are inextricably linked. Materialism is this: everything that exists is only matter and energy and can only be explained thusly. Like Rationalism (from the latin word meaning “root,”) and Reductionism (“reduce”), Materialism makes a bold statement about existence, evinced in the words: merely, only, just, and actually:
A market is only a place to get food. A shrine is just a religious artifact. The Other is merely a psychological experience. Or, the gods and spirits and fae are actually just stories.
By reducing our worlds to the material, our thoughts to chemical reactions, our stories to illusions, and our experiences of the Other to delusions, Materialism rips from us the very tools by which we world the Other into the earth. While denying the Other and turning our desire and experience of it into mere psychological states and disorders, we find ourselves disarmed, alienated: we become disinhabited things.
The worst part? We not only accept this state of affairs, we cling to it, sustain it, and re-enact it.

Complexity Theory & Panpsychism

Mr. Robb says that in this work he stumbled on an understanding of how astronomy guided the Celts, semi-nomadic tribes who dominated Europe in the Iron Age, from 800 B.C. to A.D. 600, in their migrations from the Iberian Peninsula to the Black Sea.

The argument is complex — think of it as Asterix meets “Longitude” — but Mr. Robb basically asserts that the Celts followed the directions of their druids, a caste of scholar-priests who believed in following the path of the sun at the solstice to guide their vast tribal migrations. These migrations unfolded before 58 B.C., when Julius Caesar crossed the Alps and defeated the Gauls, a Celtic tribe, effectively ending Celtic civilization.

In their wanderings, Mr. Robb writes, the Celts laid the groundwork for centuries of European history to follow. They built roads and bridges — making it easier for Caesar to take Gaul, Mr. Robb notes — developed complex communications systems, imposed rule of law, traded with the Greeks, carried out a census and even held an annual pan-tribal congress of druids in southern France.

In Sons of Anarchy, the IRA pass a message from their Kings to the deposed King of SAMCRO in this book, The Mad King. What extra message lies in page 47?

Around 70 percent of Spanish and 60 percent of French men also belong to the genetic group of the Pharaoh who ruled Egypt more than 3,000 years ago.

"We think the common ancestor lived in the Caucasus about 9,500 years ago," Scholz told Reuters.

It is estimated that the earliest migration of haplogroup R1b1a2 into Europe began with the spread of agriculture in 7,000 BC, according to iGENEA.

However, the geneticists were not sure how Tutankhamun’s paternal lineage came to Egypt from its region of origin.

The centre is now using DNA testing to search for the closest living relatives of “King Tut”.

"Hand stencils are a truly ironic category of cave art because they appear to be such a clear and obvious connection between us and the people of the Paleolithic," said archaeologist Paul Pettitt of Durham University in England. "We think we understand them, yet the more you dig into them you realize how superficial our understanding is."

Whitley rejects Guthrie’s idea that this art was made for purely practical reasons related to hunting. His view is that most of the art was made by shamans who went into trances to try to connect with the spirit world. “If you go into one of these caves alone, you start to suffer from sensory deprivation very, very quickly, in 5 to 10 minutes,” Whitley said. “It can spin you into an altered state of consciousness.”

The new study doesn’t discount the shaman theory, Whitley added, because in some hunter-gatherer societies shamans are female or even transgendered.

The new work raises many more questions than it answers. Why would women be the primary artists? Were they creating only the handprints, or the rest of the art as well? Would the hand analysis hold up if the artists weren’t human, but Neanderthal?
