For you who have wondered if there is more, or less, to religion than you were taught as a child, Laughing at the Devil shines a new light on our forgotten heritage.
I’m David O’Neil, and when I was a child my mother ran away to a fundamentalist Catholic cult with my sisters and me. The adventure profoundly affected my life, and subconsciously pushed me to study the roots of Western religion.
Thanks to those investigations some of our long-lost knowledge has been rediscovered. The most interesting item shared in LATD is how religion and science worked hand-in-hand thousands of years ago.
For instance, we know our ancestors became aware of the sun’s path through the zodiac between 1300 to 500 BC, but we haven’t understood the observations behind that discovery until now. LATD is the first source to illuminate the forgotten thinking of those ancient searchers.
Whether you’ve wondered how the seven days of our week came into existence, or why the biblical Samson tale is riddled with mythical elements, you are certain to learn something new in LATD.
Other topics include when the ‘Golden Age’ prevailed, and what Nibiru – a Babylonian entity many now think is a planet set to destroy Earth – really was. A deeper understanding of the Jesus story is also presented.
Those early astronomic studies and religious endeavors were attempts to improve the world. These new understandings will be helpful as we continue that ancient and noble tradition.
OUR FORGOTTEN ASTRONOMY
