A new discovery challenges―if not rewrites―ancient history by showing how the world’s first cultures mysteriously shared the same religious icon. From the Egyptians to the Assyrians, the pre-Incas to the Europeans, the icon is ubiquitous. Is it the lost symbol of a forgotten Golden Age religion that flourished globally in the remote past? How can it not be? – See more at: http://www.richardcassaro.com/pagan-god-self-icon-found-worldwide-rewrites-history-reveals-lost-golden-age-religion#sthash.DfLzIvvV.dpuf
The same icon etched in stone atop temple doors on opposite sides of the world. Left: Gate of the Sun in Tiahuanaco, Bolivia. Right: Temple of Hadrian in Ephesus, Turkey. For several decades, mainstream scholars have insisted that the world’s first civilizations arose separately and independently. But an amazing new find now casts serious doubt on their theory. It shows how ancient cultures worldwide―cultures that scholars insist evolved independently―actually followed the same global spiritual system or Universal Religion, the central icon of which has now been found to be common amid their ruins.
The Icon Found In Ruins Worldwide The religious icon is shown in the photos below.
This same religious icon exists in the ruins of the world’s most ancient cultures―an astonishing parallel undiscovered and undocumented by academia! With both arms outstretched in opposite directions (right and left) a single god or goddess holds “twin objects” in each hand, symmetrically. These objects are usually animals, often serpents, but sometimes vegetation or magical staffs. The artwork is almost always perfectly symmetrical, just like the icon’s pose. If ancient cultures evolved separately, as scholars tell us, then how is this same religious icon present worldwide? This stunning new discovery challenges mainstream academic history. It strongly suggests ancient cultures did not evolve separately, as scholars tell us; on the contrary, ancient cultures worldwide were “united” in their spiritual beliefs, most probably the result of a “shared cultural heritage” stemming from the prehistoric era. But “united” how? A “shared cultural heritage” how? Did a “Golden Age” of humanity once exist in our remote past, as the Greeks, Hindus and others claimed?―a kind of “Tower of Babel” era, when the world was one speech and one tongue? Was this icon, along with the spiritual wisdom it signifies, “inherited” from this Golden Age?
Despite recognizing the icon in their respective disciplines, Old World scholars and New World scholars have:
(a) failed to recognize the icon’s presence worldwide
(b) failed to understand the ubiquitous meaning the icon holds worldwide
(c) failed to connect (a) and (b) and thus remain unaware that THE ICON IS THE CHIEF SYMBOL OF A LOST ANCIENT UNIVERSAL RELIGION once known worldwide
Just as the simple crucifix conveys a complete metaphysical doctrine expressing complex themes like “sacrifice,” “life,” “death,” and “resurrection,” likewise this Lord of the Animals / Staff God icon encodes a single multifaceted metaphysical doctrine or Universal Religion.
This religion relates eternal spiritual and perennial truths regarding who we are, where we came from, why we’re here, and where we’re going, as we’ll see in a moment.
