In this episode, I am joined by Domonic and Janus as we do a crossover, roundtable podcast on the myths, legends, magic, and mysticism associated with that bad-boy Samaritan and father of all heresies, Simon the Magician. We also explore the Gospel of John, the Clementine Homilies, Helen, Mary Magdalene, the Samaritans, the competing Orthodox Church vs. those heretical pesky Gnostics, the obscure Celtic legend of Mug Ruith, the Essenes, and much, much more! Part […]

On the Origin of the World (Codex II) of the Nag Hammadi Library, is dominated by a compendium of influences including Manichaean, Valentinian, Sethian, Ophite, Egyptian, Hermetic (Pagan Gnosis), Jewish apocalyptic apocrypha (Enoch and Jubilees), magic and astrology, and last but not least, and as the primary focus of this paper, the Orphic and Hellenistic mysteries. Yet, despite the variety of different influences, it still retains a particular Gnostic flavor—written persuasively as an academic essay, to not only attract potential adherents to the Gnostic religion but also to defend the Gnostic world-view in a distanced and factual manner. The author writes the text not as a receiver of revelation but as a scholar who quotes his multitude of sources. These references and allusions to other, non-Gnostic works are employed to lend weight to the author’s message. Because of the juxtaposition of eclectic influences and even the citation of other texts, which are now lost to us, for the most part, they seem to point to a school in Alexandria, Egypt as a place of origination.

Welcome to 2017! In previous posts, especially this one, I’ve noted that the Old Testament and even the New Testament are rife filled with references to other gods, or a plurality of gods (which are actually angels or archons, according to the Christian and Gnostic traditions). This is especially evident in the apocrypha like the Books of Enoch, Jubilees, the Dead Sea Scrolls and the Nag Hammadi Library. Many are brainwashed by such dogma as […]
In both Matthew 22:15-22, and Mark 12:13-17, have two separate but similar accounts that have Jesus giving the famous phrase “Render unto Caesar”. Here is Matthew’s account: 15 Then the Pharisees went and plotted to entrap him in what he said.16 So they sent their disciples to him, along with the Herodians, saying, “Teacher, we know that you are sincere, and teach the way of God in accordance with truth, and show deference to no one; for […]
In a previous post, I discussed about the “Secrets of Saturn” and how Saturn reflects many different aspects of many different religions, esoterica and the Holy Grail mythos. According to the ancient Greek writers such as Hesiod, Ouranos was born from Gaia, the “mother of all living,” much like Eve in Genesis. Others claim Ouranos came from the primeval god Aer or Aethyr. Ouranos is first equated with our terrestrial blue sky and is later […]
The replicants in the film “Blade Runner” based off of Philip K. Dick’s Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? are seen as pawns in a chess game of the human. Their entire existence is made to be used to serve us. Some might agree that this is unjust, and raises moral questions about what is considered a living being and what is considered a synthetic creation destined for slave labor. In the hit video game, […]
Since the early 16th century, a tragic and sinister story has weaved its way through western culture and even today in pop culture and science—the legend of a man who makes a pact with the devil and then has to come to terms with the contract he signed. It’s the legend of Johannes Faustus. Faustus makes a deal with the devil to gain more intellectual enlightenment even though he is at the top of his intellectual […]
The following excerpts are taken from G.R.S. Mead’s classic 1900 Fragments of a Forgotten Faith. In the book, G.R.S. Mead takes the reader on a guided tour through the history of heresy, by discussing key fertile crescent backgrounds and baptismal waters that gave birth to Gnosticism and Christianity in all their shades of glory. The following is taken from the section, “Gnosis According to Its Friends.” The Book of the Great Logos According to the Mystery, is a Gnostic […]
