Hidden history becomes a bit clearer
on 13 December 2011
I am researching many things at present,the hidden history and origins of the human race and also trying to uncover the truth behind a seemingly global conspiracy to entrap the common man in a web of deceit that was first spun millenia ago. This is one of many books revealing in detail the esoteric origins of freemasonry and the undeniable connection to ancient egypt.
Hancock and Bauval are very thorough in their methodology and you will not find a book of author's opinions here but a lesson in alternative history and religion and how this has influenced the creation of the major cities in the U.S. and Paris, London and Vatican City.
This isn't necessarily a book dealing with the 'global conspiracy' as the title would suggest but it is full of fascinating insights into the origins of Christianity and Catholicism in their modern guises. The events that occurred in Occitania in Southern France between 1209 and 1244 with the 'blood-drenched horror of the Albigensian Crusades' is so shocking that you wonder why we were not taught about such atrocities at school. And also of interest is the revelatory differences and similarities between the Gnostic Christians whom pre-date the New Testament which was written at the Council of Nicea in 325AD and the Cathars and later Bogomils.
To be honest, after reading the history of these religious sects and their belief systems, it really exposes the Catholic Church as an evil and barbaric organisation lacking in human emotions and ethics. Disgusting really.
Overall,a very interesting read full of new information and ties it all up nicely with modern freemasonry and the control system in place today.
