I will begin my way through Sun Ra's Reading List for the class he taught back in day day, with a book called The Two Babylons: or, the Papal Worship Proved to Be the Worship of Nimrod and His Wife - Alexander Hislop (1916)

Here is the full reading list. This would have been a HELL of a University class.

The Egyptian Book of the Dead

Radix

Alexander Hislop: Two Babylons

The Theosophical works of Madame Blavatsky

The Book of Oahspe

Henry Dumas: Ark of Bones

Henry Dumas: Poetry for My People eds. Hale Charfield & Eugene Redmond, Carbondale: Southern Illinois University Press 1971

Black Fire: An Anthology of Afro-American Writing, eds. Leroi Jones & Larry Neal, New York: William Morrow 1968

David Livingston: Missionary Travels

Theodore P. Ford: God Wills the Negro

Rutledge: God's Children

Stylus, vol. 13, no. 1 (Spring 1971), Temple University

John S. Wilson: Jazz. Where It Came From, Where It's At, United States Information Agency

Yosef A. A. Ben-Jochannan: Black Man of the Nile and His Family, Alkibu Ian Books 1972

Constantin Francois de Chasseboeuf, Comte de Volney: The Ruins, or, Meditation on the Revolutions of Empires, and the Law of Nature, London: Pioneer Press 1921

The Source Book of Man's Life and Death (Ra's description; = The King James Bible)

Pjotr Demianovitch Ouspensky: A New Model of the Universe. Principles of the Psychological Method in Its Application to Problems of Science, Religion and Art, New York: Knopf 1956

Frederick Bodmer: The Loom of Language. An Approach to the Mastery of Many Languages, ed. Lancelot Hogben, New York: Norton & Co. 1944

Blackie's Etymology



I am not gonna read Blavatsky's books, because I already did, and they suck fucking ASS

“ The worst one is the Roman Catholic Church.”

hold on—you’ve never heard of southern baptists?

just saying

ok will continue the review

bar mitzvah

the holy roman empire was a germanic/ central european business, appointed themselves “protectors” of the church first with charlemagne

the papal states were a different story

i love the rage, boricua jesus. i dont know this hisop, maybe he was legit or maybe he just wanted a piece of the religious pie, but your personal righteous indignation is the real deal.

l.

Southern Baptists have been in it to win it for just over 200 years. The Roman Catholic Church has been doing their evil for 1600 years.

thanks for clarification!

historically already in 300 there were splinters and religious wars, “heresies” (arrianism), etc. not sure when the eastern churches split. habte used to know this shit from primary sources. it has never been a single thing. not sure when “catholic” proper began.

anyway though, we live in the present. i think protestantism’s good intentions also unleashed many deep atrocities that were worse. there’s a sort of obligatory moderation in being mainstream, and “personal interpretation” became a free for all. consider evangelicals in charge of u.s. nukes.... onwards christian soldiers (yikes).

funny story (not funny): i went to catholic school and the child molesters turned out to be the fucking civilian teachers! at least 2 were found out. also, some cub scouts asshole. the priests were ok.

i dodged those bullets but heard the gossip.

ANYWAY. keep fighting the good fight.

read The Bad Popes, it's hilarious. One of em was hanging, drunken, out of the window of his palace, excommunicating the fuck out of everybody while they were shooting arrows at him. Good times!!

all you say is true, but not part of what the book covered,

Mr. Hislop was deeply offended by the 1865 Papal decree that Mary, wife of Joseph and mother of lil baby jeebus, was born and died a Virgin, and was born FROM a virgin, ideas wholly drawn from paganism and not part of the Bible in any way. He saw where that type of shit leads.

to me protestantism was an attempt to go back to early christian days, but once churches are set up, and priests start collecting mad cash from the people, corruption always sets in.
