THE CULT OF CHRISTMAS

Early Christians recruited Roman pagans by associating Christmas with the Saturnalia, which may have led to worshippers of the Asheira cult and its offshoots, being recruited by the same Church who sanctioned “Christmas Trees”.

Pagans worshipped trees of the forest, or brought them into their homes and decorated them, and this observance was claimed and adopted by the Church.

Norse mythology tells how the god Balder was killed using a mistletoe arrow by his rival god Hoder while fighting for the female Nanna.

Druid rituals also use mistletoe to poison their human sacrificial victim.

The Christian custom of “kissing under the mistletoe” is a later synthesis of the sexual license of Saturnalia with the Druidic sacrificial cult.

In pre-Christian Rome, the emperors compelled their most despised citizens to bring offerings and gifts during the Saturnalia (in December) and Kalends (in January).

Later, this ritual appears to have expanded to include gift-giving among the wider population.

The Catholic Church then gave this custom a Christian flavor by re-packaging it in the supposed gift-giving activities of Saint Nicholas.

Nicholas was born in Parara, Turkey in 270 CE and later became Bishop of Myra.

He died in 345 CE on December 6th.

He was only named a saint in the 19th century.

Nicholas was among the most senior bishops who convened the Council of Nicaea in 325 CE and created the New Testament.

The text they produced portrayed Jews as “the children of the devil” who sentenced Jesus to death.

In 1087, a group of sailors who idolised Nicholas, moved his bones from Turkey to a sanctuary in Bari, Italy.

It was there that Nicholas replaced a female gift-giving deity called The Grandmother, or ‘Pasqua Epiphania’, who used to fill the children’s stockings with presents.

The Grandmother was later removed from her shrine at Bari, which then became the center of the new Nicholas cult.

Members of this group gave each other gifts during a pageant they conducted annually on the anniversary of Nicholas’ death, which was December 6th.

The Nicholas cult spread north until it was eventually adopted by German and Celtic pagans.

These groups worshipped a pantheon led by Woden, their chief god and the father of Thor, Balder, and Tiw.

Woden had a long, white beard and rode a horse through the heavens one evening each Autumn.

When Nicholas became merged with Woden, he also lost his Mediterranean appearance, grew facial hair, mounted a flying horse, rescheduled his flight for December, and started wearing heavy winter clothing.

In a bid to convert pagan stalwarts in Northern Europe, the Catholic Church adopted the Nicholas cult and taught that he, so therefore all Catholics should, distribute gifts on December 25th instead of December 6th.

In 1809, the novelist Washington Irving (The Legend of Sleepy Hollow and Rip Van Winkle) wrote a satire of Dutch culture entitled Knickerbocker History.

The satire refers several times to the white bearded, flying-horse riding Saint Nicholas using his Dutch name, ‘Santa Claus.’

Dr. Clement Moore, a professor at Union Seminary, read Knickerbocker History, and in 1822 he published a poem based on the character Santa Claus:

“Twas the night before Christmas,
when all through the house,
Not a creature was stirring,
not even a mouse. 
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
in the hope that Saint Nicholas soon would be there…” 

Moore added to the story by portraying his Santa with eight reindeer who descended through chimneys.

The Bavarian illustrator Thomas Nast almost completed the modern picture of Santa Claus.

From 1862 through 1886, based on Moore’s poem, Nast drew more than 2,200 cartoon images of Santa for Harper’s Weekly.

Before Nast, Saint Nicholas had been pictured as everything from a stern looking bishop to a gnome-like figure in a frock.

Nast also gave Santa a home at the North Pole, his workshop filled with elves, and his list of the good and bad children of the world.

All Santa was missing was his red outfit.

That came about in 1931, when the Coca Cola Corporation contracted the Swedish commercial artist Haddon Sundblom to create a coke-drinking Santa.

Sundblom modeled his Santa on his friend Lou Prentice, chosen for his cheerful, chubby face.

The corporation insisted that Santa’s fur-trimmed suit be bright, Coca Cola red.

Thus Santa Claus was born, a heady mixture of Christian crusader, pagan god, and a commercial goldmine.

HOLIDAYS ARE COMING

It’s that time of year again, although it does seem to come around earlier each time.

The annual rolling out of a corporate TV advert that is designed to put people in the (buying) mood for Christmas, namely the Coca-Cola ‘Holidays are Coming’ truck campaign.

So I think it’s also time for a reminder of what this stuff really is and the affect it can have, especially on it’s targeted customers…..The young.

Have you ever thought about what Coca-Cola really contains?

Are you sitting comfortably?

After 10 minutes:
The equivalent of the ten large spoonfuls of sugar that are dissolved in a single glass of Coke, cause a devastating “strike” on the bodies systems and the reason you do not vomit immediately, is only down to the presence of phosphoric acid which inhibits the emetic action of the sugar.

*unpleasant*

After 20 minutes:
A leap of insulin levels in the bloodstream occurs. The liver then struggles to convert the sugar into fats.

After 40 minutes:
The ingestion of the caffeine is completed. The pupils are expanding. The Blood pressure also rises as the liver sends the excess sugar into the bloodstream. The adenosine receptors get blocked, thereby preventing drowsiness.

*mimicking the affects of Amphetamine*

After 45 minutes:
The body raises it’s production of dopamine, which stimulates the brain pleasure center.

*Heroin has the same effect*

After 1 hour:
Phosphoric acid binds calcium, magnesium and zinc in the gastrointestinal tract, which supercharges the metabolism.

After more than 1 hour:
The Diuretic effect of the drink then starts to have an effect.

Calcium, magnesium and zinc, which make up a substantial part of our bone density are leached from the body with the urine, as well as essential sodium.

By this time we have already become irritable and/or subdued.

The entire quantity of the water contained in a Coca-Cola drink, is then quickly removed via the urine.

The active ingredient of Coca-Cola is orthophosphoric acid.

Due to its high acidity, containers used for transportation of the Coca-Cola concentrate have to be equipped with special reservoirs specifically designed for highly corrosive materials.

*hooray*

Have a closer look at the list of ingredients of one of the most advertised products of “Coca-Cola Co.”

Coca-Cola ‘Caffeine Free’.

Aqua Carbonated, E150D, E952, E951, E338, E330, Aromas, E211.

Aqua Carbonated
This is simply sparkling water.

It stirs gastric secretion, increases the acidity of the gastric juices and promotes flatulence.

*helpful*

Furthermore, spring water is never used, regular filtered water is used instead.

E150D
A food colouring, obtained through the processing of sugar at specified temperatures, with or without the addition of chemical reagents. Namely, Ammonium Sulfate.

E952
Sodium Cyclamate is a sugar substitute. Cyclamate is a synthetic chemical, has a sweet taste, which is 200 times sweeter than sugar, and is used as an artificial sweetener.

In 1969 it was banned by FDA, as it caused cancer in rats’ urinary tracts and bladders.

In 1975, it was prohibited in Japan, South Korea and Singapore.

In 1979, the WHO (World Health Organization) however, rehabilitated cyclamates, recognising them as ‘safe’.

*unsurprisingly*

E950
Acesulfame Potassium. Also 200 times sweeter than sugar and contains Methyl Ether, which aggravates the operation of the cardiovascular system.

*that’s the heart, the blood vessels and the 5 litres of blood that the blood vessels support*

It also contains asparaginic acid which can also cause a marked effect on the nervous system and also lead to addiction.

Acesulfame is difficult to dissolve and is not recommended for use by children and pregnant women.

*even conventional medicine supports this*

E951
Aspartame, which is a sugar substitute for diabetics and is chemically unstable. At elevated temperatures it breaks down into methanol and phenylalanine.

Methanol is also very dangerous.

Just 5-10ml can cause destruction of the optic nerve and irreversible blindness.

At higher temperatures, aspartame turns into formaldehyde which is a carcinogen.

Some symptoms of aspartame poisoning?

Unconciousness, headaches, fatigue, dizziness, nausea, palpitation, weight gain, irritability, anxiety, memory loss, blurry vision, fainting, joint pains, depression, fertility and hearing loss.

Aspartame can also provoke the following conditions:
Brain tumors, MS (Multiple Sclerosis), Epilepsy, Graves’ disease, Chronic Fatigue (ME), Alzheimer’s, Diabetes, Mental Deficiency and Tubercolosis.

E338
Orthophosphoric Acid. This can cause irritation of skin and eyes. It is used for the production of phosphoric acid salts of ammonia, sodium, calcium, aluminium and also in organic synthesis for production of charcoal and film tapes, for production of refractory materials, ceramics, glass, fertilisers, synthetic detergents, medicine, metalworking, and textile and oil industries.

Orthophosphoric acid is also used in the production of carbonated water and for preparation of ingredients in pastry.

It is known that orthophosphoric acid can interfere with the absorption of calcium and iron in the body, which can cause weakening of the bones as well as osteoporosis.

Other side effects are an extreme thirst and skin rashes.

E330
Citric Acid. It is widespread throughout nature and used in the pharmaceutical and food industries.

Salts of citric acid (citrates) are used in the food industry as acids, preservatives, stabilisers, and in medical fields, for preserving blood.

Aromas? As yet unknown aromatic additives.

E211
Sodium Benzoate. It is used in the production of some food products, as an anti-bacterial and anti-fungal agent.

These products are used in jams, fruit juices and fruit yoghurts.

It’s not recommended for use by asthmatics and people who are sensitive to aspirin.

A study conducted by Dr. Pete Piper at Sheffield University, found that this compound causes significant damage to DNA.

According to his findings, sodium benzoate, which is an active component in preservatives doesn’t actually destroy DNA, it just ‘deactivates’ it.

*never a good thing

This can lead to cirrhosis and degenerative diseases like Parkinson’s.

So, what else?

Is “the secret recipe” of coca-cola just an advertising gimmick?

It’s already been established that it’s basically a weak solution of cocaine with preservatives, colorants and stabilisers.

No secret there then.

BTW: This is nothing less than legalised and licensed cocaine addiction with some pure poison added for good measure.

Diet Coke is even worse, as the aspartame it contains, totally replaces the sugar, which when heated, becomes a pure neurotoxic poison.

So, if you can’t imagine a life without Coca-Cola, it may prove useful to remember:

Many distributors of Coca-Cola in the U.S use it for cleaning their truck engines.

Many police officers in the U.S keep bottles in their cars for when a car accident happens, they wash the blood out of the road with it.

Coca-Cola is a great tool for removing rusty stains on chrome surfaces of cars.

To remove corrosion from car battery, pour Coke over it and the corrosion will disappear.

To unscrew a rusty screw, dip a cloth in Coca-Cola and wrap it around the stubborn screw for several minutes.

To clean stains from clothes, pour it on dirty clothes, add washing powder and run the washing machine as usual.

You may be surprised by the results.

In India, some farmers use Coca-Cola in place of expensive pesticides, because it’s a lot cheaper and the effect is identical.

So, Coca-Cola is undeniably, a very useful product.

The real secret may be that Coca-Cola could and should only ever be used for the intended purpose, but never for drinking….
