Magic Mushroom Cults of the Dead

This episode is an interview with Prof. Earl Lee, titled “Magic Mushroom Cults of the Dead”

Earl’s new book is From the Bodies of the Gods, Psychoactive Plants and the Cults of the Dead – As Revealed in Pagan, Hebrew, Minoan, and Christian Traditions.

The origins of modern religion in human sacrifice, ritual cannibalism, visionary intoxication, and the Cult of the Dead – Explores ancient practices of producing sacred hallucinogenic foods and oils from the bodies of the dead for ritual consumption and religious anointing – Explains how these practices are deeply embedded in the symbolism, theology, and sacraments of modern religion, specifically Christianity and the Eucharist – Documents the rites of Cults of the Dead from the prehistoric Minoans on Crete to the ancient Egyptians, Greeks, and Hebrews to early and medieval Christian sects such as the Cathars Long before the beginnings of civilization, humans have been sacrificed and their flesh used to produce sacred foods and oils for use in religious rites. Originating with the sacred harvest of hallucinogenic mushrooms from the corpses of shamans and other holy men, these acts of ritual cannibalism and visionary intoxication are part of the history of all cultures, including Judeo-Christian ones, and provided a way to commune with the dead.

These practices continued openly into the Dark Ages, when they were suppressed and adapted into the worship of saintly bones–or continued in secret by a few “heretical” sects, such as the Cathars and the Knights Templar. While little known today, these rites remain deeply embedded in the symbolism, theology, and sacraments of modern religion and bring a much more literal meaning to the church’s “Holy Communion” or symbolic consumption of the body and blood of Christ. Documenting the sacrificial, cannibalistic, and psychoactive sacramental practices associated with the Cult of the Dead from the prehistoric Minoans on Crete to the ancient Egyptians and Hebrews and onward to early and medieval Christian sects, Earl Lee shows how these religious rites influenced the development of Western religion. In particular, he reveals how Christianity originated with Jesus’s effort to restore the sacred rites of Moses, including the Marzeah, or Feast for the Dead. Examining the connections between these rites and the mysterious funeral of Father Sauniere in Rennes-le-Chateau, the author explains why the prehistoric Cult of the Dead has held such power over Western civilization, so much so that its echoes are still heard today in our literature, film, and arts

Born in Rockford, Illinois (just west of Chicago) Earl has lived in Arkansas, Wisconsin, Oklahoma, and Kansas. He has a B.A. from Lyon College, a Master’s degree from the University of Arkansas, and a Master’s in Library and Information Studies from the University of Wisconsin–Madison. He currently holds the rank of University Professor and works at Pittsburg State University in Kansas. The rank of University Professor is a distinction awarded to only five professors a year.

Earl has written extensively in areas of Freethought and Censorship. His articles have appeared in numerous journals and anthologies, including an article on textbook censorship in the bestselling anthology: You Are Being Lied To.

His recent books include From the Bodies of the Gods, and he recently co-authored a SciFi novel– The Hour of Lead: A Novel of Kansas and Other Alternative Realities.

Currently he is working on a werewolf novel, along with a variety of horror stories, parodies, and erotica. His horror fiction is often graphic and always literate. You can find him here       Gnostic Media

The Real World of Money with Andrew Gause 2012.10.31

Prepare for the Worst and Hope for the Best
Andrew Gause is a real inspiration and role model for us all in preparing for the worse and hoping for the best. Andrew lives and works in one of the hardest hit areas of New Jersey this week and he pulled off doing the show, with studio quality sound, on a generator. Amazing.

Todays Topics:
-At the top of the show we found ourselves talking about the early history of electricity involving Edison, Westinghouse, Tesla and none other than J.P. Morgan.
-A caller from France asks about the intrinsic value of gold, inflation and deflation.
-Patrick gives a further example of the dollar vs. gold as savings with his story of buying a new car upon his discharge from the Navy in 1969 for $2,400
-The history of the Bundesbank in Germany must be understood to forecast what is in store for the EU
-The Federal Reserve Bank in New York holds over %30 of the World’s Gold. Most of which is “owned” by other countries. Why is that?
-Intertwined throughout this show is good info on the pluses and not to many minuses of owning rather than renting a home.
-The future of Smart Phones and monetary transactions coupled with privacy
-Andy suggests we check out DARPA
-One for all and all for one was the battle cry of the Founding Fathers. Two choices today: this idea or dependency on a government agency to bail you out of a jam.
-Cyber crimes may replace bombs
-Mr. Putin is bolstering his oil position.
-Invest in taxes says Mr. Gause
-Andy forecasting late 2013 and 2014 for inflation and metal prices to soar together.
