The torch, too, that he held, sputtered continually, with tear-provoking fumes, and no amount of shaking contrived to light it properly. The result was worse than any omens. While the newly wedded bride, Eurydicewas walking through the grass, with a crowd of naiads as her companions, she was killed, by a bite on her ankle, from a snake, sheltering there. When Thracian Orpheusthe poet of Rhodopehad mourned for her, greatly, in the upper world, he dared to go down to Styxthrough the gate of Taenarusalso, to see if he might not move the dead.
Beddru Flemming has already admitted his mistake on this one. It may be a corruption or variation of the name "Buddha" therefore perhaps Chinese or Indian in origin but that is just speculation. In an interview for the "Rational Response Squad" Flemming admits he should not have included this one: It's in a background graphic And that's a mistake, that shouldn't be in there.
What I did is I cut and pasted from a Black orpheus of gods that I was researching to find out were these true or were they not, and I should not have put that one on the list.
Kersey Graves appears to have made that up.
|Black Orpheus - Wikipedia||Etymology[ edit ] Several etymologies for the name Orpheus have been proposed.|
And so people who say, you know, 'Kersey Graves is full of crap' and this Beddru thing, he only knows about it, it's probably false, they're actually right. And I'm going to change that in the second edition of the DVD.
We'll consider the case closed on Beddru. If Flemming means "Buddha" why Black orpheus just say Buddha. Dionysos or Dionysus Dionysos also spelled Dionysus, the name means "celebration" is the Greek god of wine and of all liquid elements in nature, including the sap in trees and the blood in young animals.
He is often pictured holding a wine cup kantharos and wreathed with ivy picture rightan evergreen that symbolizes the rebirth of this "twice-born" son of Zeus or "Jupiter".
The youngest of the Olympian gods, he is somewhat insecure about his divine identity because he was conceived in the womb of a mortal woman, Semele. Again, this is not a "virgin birth" since "Zeus had many offspring Zeus had numerous liaisons with both goddesses and mortals.
He either raped them, or used devious means to seduce the unsuspecting maidens. Dionysos' semi-divine status may account for his consistent interest in mortals and wine drinkers.
There are several miracles involving Dionysos with wine, growth miracles, and others see the miracles of Dionysos or here.
The name of the god Dionysos first appears on a clay tablet from the Greek bronze age, over three thousand years ago and is therefore our oldest living symbol.
The earliest surviving Dionysiac myth is in Homer: Adriadne is killed by Artemis "on the testimony of Dionysos" Odyssey The first mention of Dionysos as embodying an abstract principle is by the philosopher Herakleitos [or Heraclitus], who lived from the sixth into the fifth century BC.
When Christianity was establishing itself in the ancient Mediterranean world, the cult of Dionysos was its most geographically widespread and deeply rooted rival Seaford, pages 3, 4, As the god of masks, Dionysos appears in many forms, but he most loves to disguise himself as a god of the city, posing as a political deity and expressing absolute power.
His political career begins in the seventh century BC on the island of Lesbos. Here he appears alongside Zeus and Hera in the common sanctuary as the god who is an "eater of raw flesh" Alcaeus, Fragment Dionysos is a god of contrasts who is at once the patron god of civic drama and a god worshipped in the wilds of nature.
The wild side of Dionysos is often most visible, both in myth and in ritual, and may be explained by his apparent origins in Phrygia Near East or Thebes Greeceand his connections with Thrace.
He is a god of animal incarnations and transformations, and his rites orgia included the tearing apart of animals sparagmos and eating them raw omophagia. Dionysos' subversive character is expressed in his rejection of the sacrificial system of eating food cooked according to the proper order roasted then boiled in favor of omophagia, the desire to eat raw flesh.
The most extreme form of omophagia is allelophagia, in which men devour one another, becoming like wild beasts and ferocious animals.Hotels & Hallways: A woman in a hotel is a fantasy about to unfold.
