IN SPITE OF GREAT ADVANCES IN FORMAL METHOD IN SOCIAL SCIENCE, MUCH OF THE UNDERSTANDING OF PERSISTING AND GENERAL RELATIONSHIPS DEPENDS UPON A GRASP THAT IS TOTALLY INDEPENDENT OF SOME FORMAL METHOD. IN ADVANCING SOCIAL SCIENCE, WE INVENT AND PRACTICE TECHNIQUE AND CULTIVATE A HUMANISTIC ART. (Robert Redfield)

Voodoo Mysteries


In this documentary we enter the mysterious world of voodoo. Know their origin, beliefs, gods, rites and best kept secrets, "The Mysteries of Voodoo"

00:07 Millions of people were captured in Africa and sold in America. By the end of the 18th Century, in Haiti alone, there was a population of more than 2,900,000 African slaves. After becoming a French possession in 1697, Haiti soon became America's biggest producer of sugar and also one of the places with the highest number of slaves in the world.

03:42 Boukman, the leader of the browns, organised a great secret ceremony in BOIS CAIMAN. That night on 14th August 1891, a black pig was sacrificed and all those present drank its blood. The revolution of the slaves had begun. The message was very clear: cut off heads, burn houses and destroy plantations. In a few days more than a thousand whites were killed. The terrified white settlers started the legend that the blacks had made a pact with the devil that night in BOIS CAIMAN.

Voodoo is a religion that is very closely linked with nature and many of its deities dwell in rivers, valleys and mountains. There are many natural settings which are real sanctuaries. The faithful retreat to these places to meditate and meet their luas, or family spirits, and the principle forces of the Universe. These are spiritual observatories that enable them to communicate with the Great Beyond.

09:40 Limonat beach is a place of pilgrimage. Preachers from the most distant parts of the country come here to perform Guiné ceremonies and beseech the favour of Erzuli, mother Earth, the Goddess of Love, who is identified in syncretism with the Virgin Mary. They mainly offer food and rum and wait for Erzuli to appear, for her to take possession of someone's body.

15:20 The lakús are self-sufficient population cells. Work is communal as is the product obtained from this work. Each lakú is run by a HOUNGAN, or voodoo priest, who is called MAMBO,

18:20 A great deal of ceremonies are performed in cemeteries among the dead. The people are not afraid of these places, and it is commonplace, and considered to be a great honour for someone to sleep on his father's grave. The tomb of Baron Sammedi, the King of the Dead, can be found in all cemeteries, although in some it can only be identified by the people from the village, to stop outsiders working there. Normally, it can be recognised by its large cross and the first burial is made here.

19:25 Tonight, we are witnesses to an "expedition" made by a HOUNGAN from Artibonito, the region of Haiti with the strongest magic. fire is prepared with pine sticks and pieces of paper with someone's name written on them, in order to tie somebody down, so that they cannot leave another person. They also use special powders made by the HOUNGAN. In voodoo these powders are very important. Each HOUNGAN has his own mixtures, which can go from healing powders to zombie powder. This ceremony is performed so that the Baron may deliver justice in a dispute and carry out the sentence on the guilty party. The red and black dolls represent the protagonists, men and women, of the lawsuit that is presented. When this powerful HOUNGAN is possessed, he has the power to eat glass. Baron Sammedi reigns over all the GUEDE, the spirits of the dead. When he mounts someone he acts like a joker and uses obscene language. This is the lua of sexuality and he falls in love with women; his dance imitates the coital act and he always smokes a lot.

39:36 We attended the rite of initiation into Cuban black magic, Palo Monte, by members of the secret society Awuaka. The essential difference between santeria and El Palo, is that here they work with the dead instead of with the saints. Once the initiation is over, the prendas mayombe must be fed. So a goat and two hens are sacrificed. Their blood will satisfy the appetite of the dead, who will help the newly-initiated member to follow the way of Palo Monte.

47:11 Umbanda is based on the worship of the EGUN, beings with great spiritual light, strength and wisdom. Their objective is to attract these beneficial spirits so as to do good. Here, drums and rhythm play a fundamental role. Each spirit has its own beat and its own cadence. Their altars are dedicated to the same deities as in voodoo and santeria: EXU, OGGUN, the warrior, LEMANYA, the siren, OBATALA, the creator, XANGO, and the rest of the African pantheon.

Why does society still honor human sacrifice?

Many ancient cultures believe in blood sacrifice to the “gods” or as offerings to the Earth in return for peace, power, abundance of harvest, fertility. The Old Testament mentions burnt offerings many times, referring to animal sacrifices, a practice that Jesus abhorred. He stressed that the stench of burnt sacrifices should be stripped from the temples of worship.

Killing is embedded in human history, and as one would expect given the fickle nature of the Anunnaki “gods”, it is glorified when done for “honourable” purposes, yet it is strictly taboo for “dishonourable” reasons. A lone killer, acting for his or her own purposes is branded a criminal. Twelve jurors can legally order the punishment of this type of killer without raising a whiff of hypocrisy.
 
A band of killers can also be criminals, and punished for their acts. However, an army of killers can be “honourable” in its efforts, and individual soldiers from such an army often receive the highest honors for killing enemies.
 
Such an army and its leaders would not be subjected to criminal allegations – unless the army loses the war – in which case the military and civilian leaders responsible for the army can then face “justice” for their activities.
  • The Lockerbie bomber is a murderous terrorist to most in the West, yet a profound insurgent hero to some in the Muslim world.
  • Baron von Richthofen was a courageous hero to World War I era Germans, yet an arch villain to the Anglo alliance in that same war.
  • John Wilkes Booth was considered a hero to some but deemed to be a villain by most for assassinating U.S. President Abraham Lincoln.
  • The same holds true for Lee Harvey Oswald, who allegedly assassinated U.S. President John F. Kennedy a century later.
  • Saddam Hussein was a villain to most people in the West, yet a hero to many in the Arab world.
When Hussein was convicted and publicly executed on the orders of an “official” court assembled by the winning side, many in the West were made heroes for their part in killing Hussein, yet they remain vilified to many of the vanquished.
 
The gleeful cheering of Saddam Hussein’s public execution is a form of blood-thirsty expression by mobs who were programmed to scream for blood! This same programming was especially witnessed during the French Revolution, when the mobs cheered as each victim was publicly beheaded by the guillotine.

Killing is promoted in this world. In fact, the world thrives on blood. What else could be expected in a world that has been under bloodthirsty Anunnaki domination for such a long, long time? And, the killing and violence is not limited to warfare.
 
It happens in cultural, political and religious achievements, as it does in civilian and military structural manufactures. The Anunnaki have played many cruel tricks on humans, and driven them to excessively violent behavior. The Anunnaki thrive on watching humans kill one another.

The construction of the Great Wall of China claimed many human lives, all in the name of defense of the nation.
 
There is a cultural belief that things that are stained with human sacrifices and blood will be strengthened and fortified. The basic premise of this belief stems from trying to appease the “gods” and Earth itself. Thus, it is believed that the Great Wall of China has been reinforced and strengthened because people gave their lives constructing it.

Legend has it that many human corpses were encased into China’s Great Wall to strengthen it.
 
These so-called superstitious beliefs that demand human blood are widespread, and quite common in many cultures throughout the world. The source of this type of thinking comes from the Anunnaki “gods, who have deceived people into offering them human sacrifices.
 
These events are not limited to the ritualistic “tossing of virgins into volcanoes”. They continue to exist in the world, clothed in many different disguises.

Human sacrifice is not only extant, it is prevalent, albeit often cloaked in culturally palatable forms. A very obvious example of human sacrifice is found in wars. Those who are not so naïve can readily list many other forms.
 
So,
  • Why do people still pay homage to these bloodthirsty Anunnaki pseudo-gods?
  • Why do humans fall for Anunnaki deception?
  • Why are people tricked by insidious Anunnaki hoaxes?
  • Why does society still honor human sacrifice?

Sherlock Holmes: The Movie and Our Illuminati 'New Age Religion'


'I went and saw "Sherlock Holmes", Hollywood's latest New Age Propaganda. I have been a fan of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle since childhood (the author of the original series), and I doubt he would even recognize the movie or its hero. Yes, I will admit I enjoyed the movie. It was full of twists and blind alleys. The ending was also unpredictable for most. Yet, as usual, Hollywood is not interested in just entertaining. They want to Propagandize us into accepting the values and philosophy of their coming "New-Age Religion".'

The 2009 Video Music Awards: The Occult Mega-Ritual



Sep 25th, 2009 | By Vigilant | Category: Vigilant Reports

From unexpected drama to shocking performances, MTV’s 2009 Video Music Awards managed once again to raise eyebrows and get people talking. What most people however missed is the occult meanings encoded into the VMAs. The TV event was in fact a large scale occult ceremony, complete with an initiation, a prayer and even a blood sacrifice. We’ll look at the symbolism that went on during the show.

Award ceremonies like the VMAs define and crystalize the pop culture of an era. It consecrates the chosen artists and leaves the others dwelling in the shadows of anonymity. As seen above, the whole show was heavily permeated with occult symbolism, primarly focusing on the “initiation” aspect of it. Why is MTV exposing young people (who know nothing about occultism) to such rituals? Is there a subliminal effect on the viewers? Are we educating the new generation to accept these symbols as part of popular culture? There is definitively a second layer of interpretation in many of MTV’s products. To decode those symbols is to understand the inner-workings of the entertainment industry.
