Alas Babylon – A History of Modern Religion
Who Are The Real Aryan People
Among the first thing that should be clarified, especially given the modern “sensitivities” and the current levels of both ignorance and apathy in most things historical. The history of the Aryan people is perhaps among the most misunderstood and abused words in our lexicon today. Let us look at the original definition from the Ancient EU website, and add in some other works as we dig deeper into the truth.
ARYAN: The English word 'Aryan' comes from the Sanskrit word ārya, which is the self-designation used by the Vedic Indic people who migrated into the Indian subcontinent around 1500 BCE.
The term “Aryan” has nothing to do with a bunch of ignorant, racist white supremacists. That seems relatively important to note in this day and age when people consider speech to be violence and acts of violence to be an expression of speech.
There is ample evidence to indicate also that the original Aryan people moved on from the middle east into other regions of the world including becoming the original Pict people in areas of Scotland and Ireland, Meso-America, India, and other areas around the world.
There is more than just a little speculation that it was perhaps the original Aryan people who created the pyramids around the world, including those in Egypt, Meso-America, China and virtually everywhere they can be found today.
This would in part explain the many common features of all these pyramids and other monuments, even allowing a process of natural evolution to account for the differences on these pyramids and other monuments. The differences could be accounted for in many ways, including diverse groups with their own takes on the original methods, all being implemented in areas that they would ultimately settle as their new homelands around the world.
Ancient Aryan People and Religious Context
It is also interesting to note, for those with an open mind anyhow, the many common tales and stories among virtually all of the major religions around the world. There is a theory known as “Comparative Mythology”, and while I prefer a more philosophical approach to faith as opposed to putting faith in religious dogma or church tenets, it would be reasonably fair to take a mythological approach to religion at the same time.
Comparative Mythology in terms of religion, examines the many common aspects of the different major religions. There are many cases where the stories or “myths” seem to be completely parallel. In other cases, the root stories are the same but the conclusions or tenets or the history and origins have been changed.
Please remember, you were warned that this was written for people who have an open mind. David Icke is by all definitions, an atheist who does not believe in God per se, and seeks to discount religion as a whole. Now how can you reasonably understand anything if you do not consider all of the points both for and against any argument? David Icke, given the level of research he has committed to debunking religion, definitely merits closer inspection and a consideration of his beliefs and conclusions he has drawn from his research.
Likewise Zecharia Sitchin was oft mocked and misunderstood as well. Still, whether you regard these people with awe, scorn or anywhere in between, the level and depth of their research merits at least some consideration.
Ancient Babylon and Modern Religious Belief
What I find interesting, given my more philosophical approach to faith rather than any blind faith in a given religious institution created by men, is the common conclusions that they have drawn.
There are definitely variations, and this is only supposition based on what I have read, but I find it both very interesting and compelling that both of these researchers who have effectively committed their lives to such research, has led to a seemingly common conclusion.
Their general belief, in what is given, is an over-simplification, is the common history of virtually all modern religions to the ancient Babylonian religion and the original Aryan people of Babylon. If indeed all modern religion share common roots in ancient Babylon, what could have caused the separation and division necessary to create such a divide among religious institutions of men in existence today?
If you know and understand religious history, we see that the humans tried to elevate themselves above the position of God. This is as opposed to today where secular humanism, with all due respect to Sam Harris (though a bit of confusion at his rather circular reasoning and his belief that he has the only true version of secular humanism) and others like Matt Dillahunty, is proposed to supplant even the most basic need for God.
Today, rather than attempt to elevate ourselves above God, it seems as if the modern theories are aimed at replacing God with humans ... something that we can see even as far back as the ancient Hebrew books of Ruth and Judges and Kings. All that aside, ancient Babylon was indeed the location where God divided humanity, separating our languages and the people of the world.
Alas, Babylon and a People Divided
Was this the great breakup of a singular continent? Was there some other means by which the people were divided?
Are the Aryan people in fact descendants of the legendary Atlantis who sought refuge from a global catastrophe some thirteen thousand years ago more or less? Are the original Aryan people perhaps merely early missionaries who each went forth to convert and save souls around the globe?
Like science and faith, even in terms of religion, people seem far more intent to examine the differences and build a divide rather than seeking out the common core beliefs and seeking to unite. Yet if we examine all of the major religions, no matter what the root cause, they all seem to be based on roughly the same set of beliefs and ideology (as opposed to mythology in my belief system) and merit consideration as being as much related each to the other as they are separate ideologies.
Ideally, there will come a day when I can devote virtually every waking hour to studying the common beliefs among the religious institutions and perhaps even use the ancient texts and scrolls to tie those beliefs to a common cause. This however, would require a great deal of support that I do not currently have at my disposal.
All that being said, I am hopeful that others will chime in here and let me know their thoughts.
Let us know what you think please!
