"Now giants ("Nephilim") were upon the earth in those days, and also afterward. For after the sons of God had intercourse with the daughters of men, they brought forth children, who... More > were the mighty men of old, men of renown". - Genesis 6:4 The Nephilim were the heroes and Kings of men, yet they were treated unjustly by the usual suspects, that ad-hoc union of envious groupists and sophists. And If the sophists were to have had their way, not even the echo of the lamentations of the Nephilim was to have passed over the mountains of that day, much less survived into our own days! Luckily, the sophists themselves have told us the story about the Nephilim, for such is human heroism; the heroism of the sophists, to be, though indeed cryptic, brave enough to let us know at least indirectly by means of mythologies the story of the Nephilim; and the heroism of the Nephilim, to have been so heroic in their days that the stories they made were difficult to conceal, even for the most hard-hearted of sophists.< Less
Atlantis the Antediluvian World By Ignatius Donnelly
eBook (ePub): $2.99
At the center of Donnelly's thesis are a set of similarities between widely separated cultures. This he interpreted as evidence that all civilization diffused outward from a central point (a now... More > sunken continent in the mid-Atlantic). He cites mythological, linguistic, ethnographic and other evidence for this theory, which at the time seemed to add up to an airtight case. Donnelly proposes a literal interpretation of Plato's account of Atlantis. He also ties Atlantis into the global flood myth-complex. These, until recently, have been two of the most compelling unsolved puzzles of history. What was Plato writing about when he described the prehistoric civilization of Atlantis, which disappeared overnight in a great catastrophe? Was this an actual historical account, or a philosophical fable? And why do widely separated cultures on every continent, Australia, the Americas, Europe and Asia all have a similar myth of a great flood from which only a few humans survived to restart civilization?< Less
The World's Sixteen Crucified Saviors By Kersey Graves
eBook (ePub): $2.99
This is one of the most controversial books about the Christian narrative of Jesus ever published. Graves tried to gather together all of what was known at the time about other similar stories of... More > gods who walked the earth, preached ethical and mystical doctrines, and ended up as Deicides. Today, folklorists have discovered a set of world-wide themes relating a story of a culture-hero who has a miraculous birth and tragic death. This is one of the archetypal stories which Jung and Campbell discussed. This does not lessen the impact, however, on traditional believers in these narratives as the absolute truth. So is the need for a deathless hero who saves humanity part of the deep structure of our brain? Is religion simply filling a psychological need which is part of being human? The World's Sixteen Crucified Saviors raised a host of questions, few of which have yet been adequately answered, over a century later.< Less
The Gods of Man: Gods of Nature - God of War By Gary R. Varner
eBook (PDF): $4.00
Today the majority of humankind worships a single God. Although this God is said to be all loving and wanting peace for his worshippers there is very little peace among the three religions based on... More > common theology. Judaism, Christianity and Islam all foster hatred for one another, causing millions of deaths and untold suffering for hundreds of years. This book explores the mythic, historical, and archaeological record to illustrate the history of these conflicts. The Gods of Man also looks at how monotheism eventually dominated and destroyed the ancient and peaceful goddess traditions that had existed for thousands of years before. Is the God of today simply used to enforce government edicts, justify war and to control society? Gary R. Varner has written several articles and books on ancient religions, folklore and mythology. He is a member of the American Folklore Society and the Foundation for Mythological Studies.< Less
