    Helios Biblios HOUR, THE Sun Book aka Bible

    in History

    Do Christians Worship the Sun? No, of course not, but their belief is not holy and it has a root in ancient Sun worship. Check it out. The word Holy Bible derives from the Greek Words Helios Biblos. Helios means Sun and Biblos is derived from the ancient Egyptian word, papyrus, which means paper. "Holy Bible" means Sun Book (or compiled papers) and represents the knowledge of the "Children of the Sun" as recorded by the original inhabitants of Egypt.The biblical Jesus, for the most part, is the SUN in the sky. The fiery SUN. John 3:19 "I am the Light of the world," Psalms 84:11 "the Lord God is a sun….," Deuteronomy 4:24 "God is a consuming fire," Mal. 4:2 "Sun of Righteousness," and John 12:46 "...a light into the world" are just a few examples. The 12 apostles of the biblical Jesus are the constellations.People are not born from virgins. The Virgin birth is the SUN having its start (solar calendars) in the constellation of Virgo as it was in some areas of the world. (Virgo is Latin for virgin) The name Mary is symbolic to the names Auset-Meri (Isis) and Maya. Isis was the Virgin mother of the astrological Sun God Heru (Horus) of ancient Egypt. In Buddhist mythology, Maya was the name of the virgin mother of Siddhartha (the Buddha of 2,500 years ago). There are more astrological virgin mothers besides these three. In fact, there were over 10 "crucified saviors" before Jesus, because these are mythological and esoteric stories based on the SUN and it's movements. Virgo is the only female constellation, the celestial virgin.The resurrection of Lazarus is a plagiarized story taken from the Ausarian Resurrection of over 12,000 years ago, which was also based on the SUN. In the story, the God Ausar (Osirus) was killed by his brother, Set (origin of the word Satan). The son (Sun) of Ausar (Osirus), named Heru (Horus in Greek) avenged his father's death.

    George Christie: Fact from fiction of the Hells Angels

    in History

    Today, we talk with a true American legend George Christie rather then my telling you about him let's use his own words: 
    ..."As an ex-Hells Angel president—the longest serving president in club history—and one-time international spokesperson for the club, George Christie was also the rare peacemaker in a brutally violent culture. Having fought first in the early wars between motorcycle clubs on the streets of Southern California, he came to believe that guns and knives weren’t an answer. George eventually brokered peace not only among a variety of American clubs, but also helped negotiate a truce to the infamously violent Nordic Biker Wars fought between the Scandinavian chapters of the Hells Angels and the Bandidos.  ? ?After four decades of riding with the Hells Angels, George walked away, quitting in 2011. He paid dearly for that decision. Club informants seeking to save themselves provided the basis for trumped-up federal charges that sent George to La Tuna federal prison for a year. He’s been a target of his former club brothers ever since.    Since his release, George has starred in the History Channel TV show, Outlaw Chronicles: Hells Angels, started Felony Prison Consulting, a company that helps defendants navigate the justice system, and written his memoirs, Exile on Front Street. He regularly lectures to groups ranging from civic organizations and criminal justice classes, to trial lawyer conferences. After the Waco, Twin Peaks shootout, George was asked to speak to law enforcement audiences and agreed to speak on his terms to audiences of police officers, with the goal of preventing any further outlaw biker deaths."...

    SAY IT AIN'T SO!!!
    WORLD WEEKLY NEWS OCTOBER 10, 2011 STATES: "CAMBRIDGE, U.K. – New research done by the University of Cambridge proves conclusively that Christopher Columbus was a black man."
    "DNA analysis of the remains of Christopher Columbus, done by forensic scientists at the University of Cambridge, prove beyond a shadow a doubt that the famed navigator was of African descent."
    “A five-hundred-year-mystery has been solved,”  said Wellington Malley, the head of the Cambridge research team.  “Even though Columbus was born in Genoa, and spoke and wrote in Spanish most of his life, the DNA is clear – Columbus was 100% African.  We believe he was from the west coast, probably from what is now Cameroon.”
    Are we to blame for this cramp? Really?
    Let's discuss this new information (213) 286-6737 or skype: prettypurplepassion.1 or chat online.

About History

As Carl Sagan said, "You have to know the past to understand the present." History has shaped our nation's character, and our collective strength is measured in how we came together during our most challenging moments: the Civil War, World War I, Prohibition, World War II, the Dust Bowl, McCarthyism, the Cold War, the Challenger disaster, Operation Desert Storm, 9/11 and countless struggles before and since. But history also contains triumphs, from ending slavery to the moon landing to the fall of the Berlin Wall to Mars rover Curiosity. Join in discussion on these and more with historians, collectors, authors, professors and conspiracy theorists alike. Our hosts also show much support for our troops and military families. In fact, technology has played a big part in bringing soldiers closer to home, as they text, email and Skype from the front, and our “talk to the troops” episodes are always inspiring.
