Queen of heaven

An occasion on which a Western woman is likely to wear a veil is on her wedding day. Veils covering the hair and face became a symbolic reference to the virginity of the bride thereafter. A bride may wear the face veil through the ceremony. Then either her father lifts the veil, presenting the bride to her groom, or the groom lifts the veil to symbolically consummate the marriage.”

By combining a symbol of virginity with her pregnant belly, we get a bizarre message about the babies being conceived without sexual relations – not unlike the Virgin Mary.

Beyoncé’s Grammy performance went even deeper into Virgin Mary symbolism while emphasizing the concept of immaculate conception.

Anubis

Anubis (/əˈnbɪs/ or /əˈnjbɪs/;[2]Ancient GreekἌνουβιςEgyptianjnpw, Coptic: ⲁⲛⲟⲩⲡ Anoup) is the Greek name of a god associated with mummification and the afterlife in ancient Egyptian religion, usually depicted as a canine or a man with a canine head

The aforementioned Anubis is said to be the son of Set. 

Archeologists identified the sacred animal of Anubis as an Egyptian canid, that at the time was called the golden jackal, but recent genetic testing has caused the Egyptian animal to be reclassified as the African golden wolf.

Archeologists identified the sacred animal of Seth as an Egyptian cryptic,the sha,  that might be an ancestral species of the Fennic fox. 


In the Ptolemaic period (350–30 BC), when Egypt became a Hellenistic kingdom ruled by Greek pharaohs, Anubis was merged with the Greek god Hermes, becoming Hermanubis.[26][27] The two gods were considered similar because they both guided souls to the afterlife.



  • In Stargate SG-1, Anubis is a Goa’uld, a parasitic alien who rules part of the galaxy using a human host and claiming to be a god. Unlike most of his race, Anubis has some limited claim to being an actual god, as he once “ascended” to a higher plane of existence and gained great power and knowledge as a result.

Anubis is a very classy restaurant on the south side of town. Marlon and his family are skilled at the art of hosting fine dining. As you enter, you take in the cool Egyptian-style art, and an entertaining and inviting bar. The best of course is getting a wonderful meal in great ambiance at very reasonable prices. Highly recommended.

Son of Anubis: Wepwawet

Wepwawet, a deity associated with the city of Asyut in Upper Egypt, later called Lycopolis (the City of the Wolves) in the Graeco-Roman period. Wepwawet is often confused with the god Anubis since they are both depicted as a man with the head of a jackal or wolf. But Wepwawet was usually shown with a wolf head, hence the name of his city. While shown in jackal form he still had gray fur, more like a wolf than a jackal.

Wepwawet was known as the Opener of the Way – the god who guided the souls of the dead through Duat (an area in Egyptian belief that resembles the Romans Catholic idea of purgatory) and was also believed to be incredibly fierce.

AS Wepwawet became assimilated into the traditional Egyptian pantheon, he became portrayed as the son of Anubis (probably because they look so much alike), although some traditions describe him as the son of the serpent god Set.

In later Egyptian art, Wepwawet was depicted as a wolf or a jackal, or as a man with the head of a wolf or a jackal. Even when considered a jackal, Wepwawet usually was shown with grey, or white fur, reflecting his lupine origins.

Jerusalem 

The names Melchizedek and Salem suggest the uniqueness of the king of Salem and his people. In fact, the very name Melchizedek consists of the two Hebrew words malkî (“king”) and sedeq(“righteousness”), implying the king of Salem’s faith in God—“My king is righteousness.” 1 Similarly, the Apostle Paul interpreted Melchizedek as “King of righteousness” (Heb. 7:2).Salem, the name of Melchizedek’s land or city, may mean “peace” or “peaceful.”

According to the Book of Joshua, Adonizedek led a confederation of Jebusites, and the tribes from the neighbouring cities of Jarmuth, LachishEglon and Hebron against Joshua, but was soundly defeated and killed.

As for the Jebusites, the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the children of Judah couldn’t drive them out; but the Jebusites live with the children of Judah at Jerusalem to this day.

0And it came to pass in those days, when there was no king in Israel, that there was a certain Levite sojourning on the side of mount Ephraim, who took to him a concubine out of Bethlehemjudah… and she brought him into her father’s house: and when the father of the damsel saw him, he rejoiced to meet him… And they stayed six days… 

But the man would not stay another night, but he rose up and departed, and came over against Jebus, which isJerusalem; and there were with him two asses saddled, his concubine also waswith him. 11And when they were by Jebus, the day was far spent; and the servant said unto his master, Come, I pray thee, and let us turn in into this city of the Jebusites, and lodge in it. 12And his master said unto him, We will not turn aside hither into the city of a stranger, that is not of the children of Israel; we will pass over to Gibeah.

The border of…. went down to the edge of the hill which is in the valley of Ben-hinnom (son of Hinnom) , which is in the valley of Rephaim northward; and it went down to the valley of Hinnom, to the slope of the Jebusite southward, and went down to En-rogel.

According to the Books of Samuel, the Jebusites still had control of Jerusalem at the time of King David, but David wished to take control of the city. 

Later King David and all Israel went to Jerusalem (or Jebus, as it used to be called), where the Jebusites, the original inhabitants of the land, were living.

The people of Jebus taunted David, saying, “You’ll never get in here!” But David captured the fortress of Zion, which is now called the City of David.

The Books of Kings state that once Jerusalem had become an Israelite city, the surviving Jebusites were forced by Solomon to become serfs.

Zeus..  In Your face! 

In 2013 a kinetic weapon bombardment system consisting of tungsten rods in an orbiting platform, codenamed Project: Zeus, was featured in the movie G.I. Joe: Retaliation, where it destroys London. 

A kinetic bombardment or a kinetic orbital strike is the hypothetical act of attacking a planetary surface with an inert projectile, where the destructive force comes from thekinetic energy of the projectile impacting at very high velocities.

Erebus (Darkness) 

Mt Erebus in Antarctica 

Mount Erebus is the most southerly active volcano on the planet. It began to form about 1.3 million years ago and now stands 12,448 feet above sea level. Its slopes are covered with snow and ice, glaciers, crevasses, and the occasional lava flow, but steam usually rises from its summit, betraying the heat within. If Erebus were a dessert, it would be a reverse baked Alaska—frozen on the outside, hot in the middle.

Erebus

The perceived meaning of Erebus is “darkness”; the first recorded instance of it was “place of darkness between earth and Hades”.

In Greek mythology, Erebus /ˈɛrəbəs/, also Erebos (Greek: Ἔρεβος, “deep darkness, shadow”), was often conceived as a primordial deity, representing the personification of darkness; for instance, Hesiod’s Theogony identifies him as one of the first five beings in existence, born of Chaos.

EREBOS (Erebus) was the primordial god (protogenos) of darkness and the consort of Nyx (Night). His dark mists encircled the world and filled the deep hollows of the earth. In the evening, Erebos’ wife Nyx drew Erebos’ darkness across the sky bringing night and his daughter Hemera scattered it at dawn bringing day–the first obscuring Aither (Aether), the heavenly light of the ether, the second revealing it. In the ancient cosmogonies the heavenly ether (aither) and the dark mists of the netherworld (erebos) were regarded as the sources of day and light rather than the sun.

The name Erebos was also used as a synonym for the netherworld realm of Haides.

As the Wikipedia quote notes, Erebos is the personification of darkness. He is neither a deity nor a domain; he is both. Which aspect of him we are talking about, depends on context.

This is a common pattern for primordials:

  • Chaos is the personification of the void, but also the void itself.
  • Ouranos is the personification of the sky, but also the sky itself.
  • Gaia is the personification of the earth, but also the earth itself.
  • etc.

However, it should be noted that some writers used Erebos as an alternative name for Tartaros, and vice versa. One such instance can be found in The Eumenides, the final play of Aeschylus’ Oresteia. 

Erebos has developed a proprietary, patented, enhanced oil recovery additive to enable the extraction and transmission of heavy oil.
