The Alleged Scientific Superiority of Jupiter over YHWH
From Josephus Flavius to WikiIslman
In Wars, 5, 9. 4, he retails to us the speech which he says he made to the defenders on the walls. It is a survey of the past history, quite on the lines of the Deuteronomic historians: the nation's and Jerusalem's fate has ever depended upon the will of God according to the people's righteousness or wickedness. The present calamity has come as divine punishment, although it is not too late to recognize their sins and surrender to the Romans. But things have come to such a pass that 'I think that God has fled from the sanctuary and stands with those who fight against you'. One is reminded of a certain prophet's vision of the dramatic departure of the Glory of the Lord from His temple (Ezek. 10). In the preceding paragraph (§ 3) he pictures how invincible is the dominion of the Romans, a manifest token of the will of God and how 'fortune' (τυχη) has on all sides gone over to them, and God, having passed the dominion about among the nations, is now in Italy' (νυν επι της Ιταλιας ειναι). Josephus also reports that two Prisees – Pollion and Samais, his student, - advised the populace to open the gates of Jerusalem to Herod, when herod put the city under siege. The present-day version of this theology says that the Jewish people of today had no claim to the land of Israel because the church (or New Age) replaced Israel.
I guess that the man who hides behind the name Bob who wrote the article NATVRAE MIRABILIS ORIGINISQVE DIVINAE GEORGICAE VERGILII ‘On the Miraculous Nature and the Divine Origin of Virgil’s Georgics’ for WikiIslam is a Newager, an ardent admirer of the Roman paganism, like E. Gibbon, the author of The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire.
True, Bob, placed a note warning that “this article is written as part satire, and in part to demonstrate how ludicrously easy it is to prove that any ancient poetry can be reinterpreted to reveal 'scientitic miracles'. Neither Bob nor Spinoza have converted to Greco-Roman Polytheism... Yet.” What does this 'yet' say?
It says; “This critical analysis of the GEORGICA by Virgil (written in so called Golden Latin in 28 BCE) will demonstrate that these ancient deities were the transmitters of knowledge that science would only confirm many centuries later.” ...”It should also not be forgotten that Virgil’s influence has never waned in Western culture - even among Christians.” How are we understand that after his caveat he writes: “Are the GEORGICA merely pastoral poetry as so many people have always thought or are they books of divine revelation? With our painstaking research we have uncovered various types of miracles in the Liber Primus of the GEORGICA concerning:
Mathematics (Mathematica) (which is of course numerology)
Climatology (Climatologia) (Global Warming!)
Prophecy or foreknowledge of future events (Oraculum Divina)
Cardinal K. Wojtyla restores the religion of Jupiter, Best and Greatest
During the celebration commemorating 500th anniversary of birth of Copernicus, in Fromborg (Poland), an icon of Copernivcus was displayed evoking features of Jesus Christ of the Shroud of Turin. The Polish caption is even more revealing of the intentions of the organizers of this celebration, which was also attended by the then cardinal K. Wojtyla. It read: “Truly this divine masterpiece of the Best and Greatest Being is immense”. (Zaprawde, ogromne jest to arcydzielo Istoty Najlepszej i Najwiekszej” See, Jan Pawel II, papiez z Polski. Ed Interpress. Warszawa 1979, p. 116). You can also see a picture of card. K. Wojtyla strolling with other priests beneath the banner with Copernicus).
The triangle bridging the caption and the icon of Copernicus is the Pythagorean triangle whose sum of powers has been appointed as the origin of the generation of the cosmic elements. Similar triangle was worn on God's head (cp. Napoleon's hat in the shape of a triangle) on the front page of the Vulgate published in Rome 1592
The Best and the Greatest Being mentioned on this banner is, of course the Roman god Jupiter to whom Constantine in his capacity as pontifex maximus sacrificed even after his conversion. Franz Boll (Sternglaube und Sterndeutung, p.31) recounts, as other sources do too, that Constantine also ordered a horoscope from an astrologer for himself, for this new city of his: Constantinople – many years after his “conversion” He also “sacrificed to Jupiter, Best and Greatest”, after his conversion. Even shortly before his death in 337 CE, he had a commemorative coin struck on which Constantine is represented as Jupiter, while one of his sons is represented in the guise of Bacchus.
One year after the election of Card. K. Wojtyla as pope John Paul II Guide to the Vatican Museums (Gestione Vendita Publicazioni Musei Vaticani, Citta del Vaticano. 1979, o. 12)restored Emperor Severus's doctrine of the Limited Sovereignty: “ It was this spirit which inspired the creation of two of the most illustrious of the humanistic institutions of the Holy See: the Vatican Library and the Vatican Museums. Both were the outcome of a vision of Graeco-Roman culture as the perfect, almost timeless expression of human creativity at its highest levels - thought and art - and as the precursor, at times almost the prefigurement, of Christianity, above all in the West.”
The Vatican Museums originated in the court of Innocent VIII’s Belvedere Palace, which Julius III laid out in gardens and embellished with masterpieces of classical sculpture: The Apollo, the Venus Felix, the Laocoon, the Nile, the Tiber, and the Sleeping Ariadne…” It is the idea of the pagan Pantheon disguised as the most sacred relic of Roman Catholicism.
In the 1960s there was a lot of talk in Rome about refashioning a Jesus into a beautiful Apollo, and the US Moon Landing Program coded Apollo was the most important part of this project. Father Lemaitre's Big Bang theory imposed by the Vatican on the USA obliged America to do that.
Following the lead of Pope John Paul II, as expressed in his book Crossing the Threshold of Hope, two British authors in their The Jesus Mysteries. Was the ‘Original Jesus’ a Pagan God? (1999) discovered that even Jesus’ teachings were not original, but had been anticipated by the pagan sages. They are in effect saying that Jesus was a Pagan god and that Christianity was a heretical product of paganism. In their opinion, this theory explains the similarities between the stories of Osiris-Dionysus and Jesus Christ. They argue: “Pagan civilization built vast libraries to house hundreds of thousands of works of literary and scientific genius. Its natural philosophers speculated that human beings had evolved from animals. Its astronomers knew that the earth was a sphere, which, along with the planets, revolves around the sun…”
So, indeed, one gains the impression that, as Josephus put it “God, having passed the dominion about among the nations, is now in Italy' “ and his name is not YHWH but Jupiter who in Dante's famous book became “Jove for mankind crucified.”
Mario Palmieri in The Philosophy of Fascism (Chicago 1936) argued similarly “The triumph of the Catholic Idea of salvation in Christ and through Christ and His Church saw the Empire of the Church give to mankind the life-inspiring blessing of spiritual unity. A spiritual power generated from those great Italian spirits who have been in the past the assertors of Rome’s immortal and eternal right to Empire, and the prophets of Rome’s third form of Empire (Cp. III Reich), is the leaven which has brought about that fermentation of spiritual forces called Fascism… Providence chose the Italian land for this high destiny, nourishing a spark of divine truth in it “ab antico” and molding there a race wonderfully adapted in genius and intelligence for subjecting the whole world in Christian obedience…Italy is the priestly nation among the great body of redeemed peoples…Nor did the inhabitants of this peninsula give to other peoples merely divine gifts, but also every other civil and human good, and all the great intellects of Europe, who enhanced in any measure the glory of their countries, lit their lamps at the living flame of Italian genius.”
Consider in this context what an official Vatican publication, Guide to the Vatican Museums (Gestione Vendita Publicazioni Musei Vaticani, Citta del Vaticano. 1979, o. 12) has to say in this matter: “ It was this spirit which inspired the creation of two of the most illustrious of the humanistic institutions of the Holy See: the Vatican Library and the Vatican Museums. Both were the outcome of a vision of Graeco-Roman culture as the perfect, almost timeless expression of human creativity at its highest levels - thought and art - and as the precursor, at times almost the prefigurement, of Christanity, above all in the West.
At the Sources of Copernicus's Heliocentrism
Jupiter was the god of Virgil's heliocentric system presented in his Georgica:
Quid faciat laetas segetes, quo sidere terram vertere- Maecenas, ulmisque vitis conveniat
(Virgil Georgica, 1-2;1-4)
And this god was identified by Virgil with Ether:
Tum pater omnipotens fecundis imbribus Aether coniugis in gremium laetae descendit,
Then Aether, sire omnipotent, leaps down With quickening showers to his glad wife's embrace,
– (Virgil, Georgics II)
When Rome succumbed to Jesus it did not embrace him as a Jewish teacher but as the sun god Helios (Apollo) whose halo used to symbolize divine rank of Roman emperors. For centuries, the Roman propaganda, especially Cicero’s, proclaimed that the Jews were “a nation born to servitude,” like all other conquered “barbarians”. The same author, while popularizing the Pythagorean heliocentrism in his Dream of Scipio speaks of the sun as “the Lord, chief and ruler of the other lights, the Mind and guiding principle of the universe.”
Deo optimo maximo, often abbreviated D.O.M., is a Latin phrase that originally meant "to the greatest and best god", referring to Jove, when the Romans were polytheists : IOVI OPTIMO MAXIMO (I O M). Centuries later, after the Romans had become monotheists via the adoption of Christianity, the phrase was used in reference to the Christian God, and meant "To God, most good, most great." Its use continued long after the fall of Roman civilization via Europe's retention of Latin as a scholarly and ecclesiastical language. Thus the phrase or its abbreviation can be found on many Renaissance-era churches and other buildings, especially over sarcophagi, particularly in Italy. It is also inscribed on bottles of Bénédictine liquor. (Wiki)
The below link explains why I was unsuccessful in my attempts at publishing the results of my reasearch in the USA:

Prof. Page Smith observed in his book Killing the Spirit. Higher Education in America: “Rosenstock-Huessy had experienced the resentment and hostility of his Harvard colleagues (one of them referred to him as “that little squirt”) because he refused to genuflect to two of the reigning deities of the academic world, Marx and Freud, and occasionally spoke favorably of God. (...) Academic fundamentalism is at issue, the stubborn refusal of the academy to acknowledge any truth that does not conform to professional dogmas”.(pp.XII and 5)
Well, it was only when blog4brownback organized that I had, for the first time in my sojourn in America, the opportunity to publish the results of my researches into Biblical astronomy, geology and medicine that contradict Bob's Flavian Supersession theology. In my comment The Lethal Math of Solstices I showed the ignorance of the mathematical/physical working of this pseudo-science.
'Bob' omitted from his list of Virgil's 'scientific miracles' one very important subject:
Homosexuality in ancient Rome features in many literary works, poems, graffiti and comments on the sexual predilections of single emperors. Martial and Plautus describe a wide range of homosexual behaviors, in part to poke fun at them like other minor standard deviations, but without too much moralizing. The emperor Hadrian had a relationship with the younger Antinous, although this was also criticized but not significant enough to prevent him plunging the empire into mourning following Antinous' apparent death by drowning in 130.
Let me quote here a short passage from Tatian's Address to the Greeks: “The Greeks consider intercourse with a mother as unlawful, but this practice is esteemed most becoming by the Persian Magi; pederasty is condemned by the Barbarians, but by Romans, who endeavour to collect herds of boys like grazing horses, it is honoured with certain privileges.” According to the Gnostic principle “as above, so below” the deviant sexual mores were practiced by both men and their gods.
When Herod was on his death bed, Josephus says that some youths, at the instigation of their teachers Judas and Matthias, pulled down a golden eagle that Herod had erected over the great gate of the Temple as a dedicatory offering (Ant. 17.6.1-3; 151-63 = War 1.33.2-4; 649-55). The Temple gate referred to is probably the Beautiful Gate. They were prompted to their action not only by the biblical prohibition against images, but by the moral revulsion that the eagle as the symbol of Jupiter/.Zeus evoked in religious Jews.
In the classical mythology the rape of Ganymede is the story of Jupiter's abduction of the most handsome mortal, the Trojan prince Ganymede, who came to serve as cupbearer to the gods. Ganymede is usually represented as a youth, but Rembrandt shows him as a baby and shows Jupiter snatching the boy while in eagle form. The little boy is quite obviously scared. To repay his father, King Tros, eponymous founder of Troy, Jupiter gave him two immortal horses. This is but one of several stories of beauties in the tenth book, including that of Hyacinth, Adonis, and Pygmalion.
Then we have the common problem of bestiality perpetrated by the god as exemplified by the story of Leda and the swan i.e. Zeus/Jupiter morphed as a swan.
The Bible taught: “Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination. Neither shalt thou lie with any beast to defile thyself therewith: neither shall any woman stand before a beast to lie down hereto: it is confusion.( Lev 18:22, 23. Dt. 23:17-18) refers to the Canaanite practice of ritual prostitution; the “price of dog” was the bounty paid to male prostitutes who allowed themselves to be sodmized, dog-fashion, by patrons of the temple.”
In the gay magazine “Advocate” (issue 710, 6/25/1996) in which the most pro-gay US President B. Clinton was interviewed, an ad showed a dog licking his master’s face and the caption promoted canine love as follows: “Dogs lick their genitals an average of four times a day”… Because, as a gay activist observed: “Queer Christians must also re-envision themselves as God’s lovers and discover a love relation with other species and with the universe itself. They need to become partners in their world with other species and learn to relate to them as friends and lovers. Because, as Pytagoras an early heliocentrist proclaimed, “Animals share with us the privilege of having a soul.”
The third edition of the Bishops’ Bible (1572), and called the Leda Bible from the decoration in the initial at the Epistle to the Hebrews which is a startling and incongruous woodcut of Jupiter visiting Leda in the guise of a swan. This and other decorations in the New Testament were taken from an edition of Ovid’s “Metamorphoses!” The Bishops' Bible became the 'backbone' of the KJV.
On Aug 8, 2010 the Polish newspaper Rzeczpospolita published my comment on scientific justification of the Biblical prohibition of homosexual practices, which proves superiority of YHWH's medical science over Jupiter's quackery.
For the emerging gay male culture sexual freedom became synonymous with adventure and conquest. “Promiscuity”, trumpeted one prominent gay newspaper, “knits together the social fabric of the gay male community,” and as such it was to be celebrated and defended. In the communal spirit of the Summer of Love in 1967, “orgy rooms” were installed in some bathhouses to facilitate group sex. Each of these men could easily have sex with several partners per visit, so that someone who patronized the baths several times a week could easily rack up as many as a thousand partners per year. It was among this core that AIDS first appeared. By the end of the seventies, gay men accounted for 80% of the 70,000 cases of syphilis treated in San Francisco’s public health clinics per year.
Strains of gonorrhea began to mutate into even nastier variants that traveled quickly around the world. Overall cases of gonorrhea in the US grew from 259,000 in 1960 to 600,000 in 1970 and to 1 million in 1980, and most of that growth occurred within the core groups formed by gay men and the urban poor. STDs burst into epidemic, plunging whole societies into medical, cultural, economic, and religious crisis and altering the course of history. Historians now argue, for example, that the vast syphilis plague that swept Europe from the Renaissance onward may have contributed to the Reformation and the rise of Puritanism, a development that still has echoes in our own time. Martin Luther's reform inculcated the marriage of the clergy, with a view to stamping out the vices that characterized celibacy not only Germany, and though the same injunction logically applies to soldiers, Frederick forced the majority of his officers to remain unmarried. In his armies he revived the vices of the Teutonic Knights and the Templars. The homosexual practices in the ranks of the Nazi SS are widely known.
The vagina is the healthy, self-cleansing organ which it must be to fulfill its sexual function adequately. The risk of exposure to carcinogens and other organism associated with the penis must be increased by the absence of these natural defense mechanisms in the rectum. The vaginas of prostitutes cannot remove the excessive seminal fluids which become the 'paradise' of microbes and viruses. The seminal fluids retained inside the rectums of gays caused the modern form of Sodom and Gomorrah i.e. the AIDS epidemic. The most important commandment relating to sex practices is hygiene not freedom bordering on anarchy.
The moral values of various peoples are very important because the microbial world, the chemical world (food and drugs), the realm of toxins and pollutants, parasites and microbes, are intimately connected to our behavior, our physical condition, our diet, all of which are intimately connected to the cultural world, the social and religious world around us. Simply put, without partner change no sexually transmitted disease can spread. Partner A may infect partner B, but things will end there. In a thoroughly monogamous population there would be no sexually transmitted diseases at all; no matter how infectious certain microbes might theoretically be. Conversely, the higher the level of partner change, the more likely that even microbes that are relatively hard to transmit will have an opportunity to spread.
The Science Revealed by Jupiter
In the time period of pedophile scandals rocking the Catholic Church it will be instructive to remind of a 1985 “New York Native” interview with Joseph Sonnabend (“leading AIDS doctor”). “The rectum”, Sonnabend said, “is a sexual organ, and it deserves the respect a penis gets and a vagina gets.” Anal intercourse has been the central activity for gay men and for some women for all of history. The “leading AIDS doctor” did not know that the people of Katmandu suffer from chronic intestinal parasites caused by drinking water contaminated with fecal matter. “Versatile” anal and oral sex and new behaviors such as analingus, or rimming facilitated the spread of otherwise difficult-to-transmit microbes. Gay men created almost laboratory conditions both to amplify STDs and then to spread these diseases throughout the world. And all these facts prove that the Bible is, indeed the God inspired Book of Books. What a shame that it is a Pope who wants to exile this Book from the memory of mankind! We already know that he will fail! Gay sex breaks every rule of decent hygiene; it is chemical and biological warfare on human societies.
YHWH's teachings on sex are as sound and scientific as His teaching on astronomy. Let me remind here that one of the moons of Jupiter is named after Ganymede, and was discovered by Galileo Galilei. Clavius, a member of the Society of Jesus, and a close friend of Galileo's was able to needle Galileo about seeing Jupiter's four moons only because Galileo drew them on the lens of his telescope. One of his many confidence tricks. No surprise here. That fact explains why gay pride parades are a very important religious ritual in the world under Copernican Science. They are still herds of boys like grazing horses, favoured with certain privileges. And now the planet Jupiter has a real army of “altar boys”.Many pacifists, feminists, birth control advocates, and homosexual rights activists were enthusiastic Darwinists and used Darwinian arguments to support their political and social agendas (See Ross Douthat, the Marriage Ideal, NYT Aug 8, 2010).
John Paul II the “Instant Saint” over his four Predecessors
There was a Jesuit college in virtually every French town of note. In paper after paper, Teilhard de Chardin, a French Jesuit paleontologist worked out his ideas, mourning his Church’s unwillingness to incorporate what Science had discovered into its understanding of the world, criticizing the “geocentricity” to which she clung psychologically for four hundred years after she had ceased to support it astronomically, and rebuking those religious thinkers who recognized nothing new under the sun since “instantaneous creation”. De Chardin wrote: “Christianity’s only chance to grow lay in her being born again among the Gentiles because only the Gentiles had retained their pagan taste for the earth.” “Christianity must break out of the closed world of Israel into the pagan world” (under one global god – Jupiter)
Popes Pius XI, Pius XII, John XXIII, and Paul VI, endeavoured to prevent the spread of the modernistic errors of this pseudo-scholar, who, as he himself confessed in a letter to a priest friend, has apostatized but deliberately remained within the Church to more easily spread his errors. (See The Strange Faith of Teilhard de Chardin, by Henri Rambaud.)
