Sun worship is often seen as primitive, but is in fact a sophisticated awe-inspiring system of worship that appeals to the senses and captivates the mind with its grandiose ceremonies. This system of worship has been perpetuated throughout generations, and in our time forms the basis of Earth religions, Buddhism, Hinduism, and Catholicism. In the mysteries of Catholicism, sun worship reaches its highest form. The names of the gods have changed, but the system of worship is the same.
Here are some of the doctrines of sun worship:
As the sun god (Nimrod) plunged into the waters of the Euphrates River, so the reincarnated son plunged into the waters of the womb to be worshipped as the saviour.
The cycle of the sun represents the sun rising (Brahma), the sun at the meridian (Siva) and the sun setting (Vishnu). At night, the sun rests in the womb of the ocean in the darkness of the underworld, representing the death and suffering of the sun god.
As god of the ocean (Poseidon, Neptune), he was also worshipped as the fish god Dagon, who had plunged into the waters of the womb to be reborn. The most prominent form of worship in Babylon was dedicated to Dagon, later known as Ichthys, or the fish. Read more about the pagan mother, father, and son system.
There are many links between ancient sun worship and Catholicism. In Chaldean (or Babylonian) times, the head of the church was the representative of the god Dagon. He was considered to be infallible, and was addressed as "Your Holiness." Nations subdued by Babylon had to kiss the ring and slipper of the Babylonian god-king.
Both the Dalai Lama and the Pope claim these same powers and the same titles to this day. Moreover, the of paganism—the fish mitre and robes of the priests of Dagon—are worn by the Catholic bishops and cardinals, and by the Pope.
