‘Dagon was the god of the Philistines. This image shows that the idol was represented in the combination of both man and fish. The name “Dagon” is derived from “dag” which means “fish.” Although there was a deep affection from Dagon’s worshippers to their deity, the symbol of a fish in human form was really meant to represent fertility and the vivifying powers of nature and reproduction.
The Babylonians had a myth that a being emerged from the Erythraean Sea who was part man and part fish and thus adopted the deity into their culture in their earliest days in history. Their have also been discoveries of the fish-god in the sculptures found in Nineveh, Assyria.’

‘Goliath hailed from the Philistine city of Gath. Usually, the name “Goliath” is thought to be connected with the Assyro-Babylonian “Guzali,” which means “running” or “destroyer.” More recently etymologists have related it to the Indo-European name, “Alyattes.”

King James Version (KJV)
4And there went out a champion out of the camp of the Philistines, named Goliath, of Gath, whose height was six cubits and a span.
5And he had an helmet of brass upon his head, and he was armed with a coat of mail; and the weight of the coat was five thousand shekels of brass.
6And he had greaves of brass upon his legs, and a target of brass between his shoulders.
7And the staff of his spear was like a weaver’s beam; and his spear’s head weighed six hundred shekels of iron: and one bearing a shield went before him.

‘The most prominent repeating structure in the body of vertebrate animals is the spinal column with its embryological somites and adult vertebrae. The first proposals that vertebrae were critical to understanding the relationships among the anatomy of various kinds of animals were made independently by Goethe, Oken and Etienne Geoffroy Saint-Hilaire in 1807.
Now the advent of Hox genetics has revealed that somites and vertebrae are organized by the same homeotic Hox genes that organize body segments in insects and other invertebrates. Nonetheless, very little attention has been paid by science to the evolutionary history and biology encoded in the spine.
The central feature of much of Egyptian religion is the ressurection of Osiris. This was accomplished by his wife and sister Isis, along with the help of Thoth – inventor of medicine and science by the reassembly of his vertebral column. The resurrection of Osiris was commemorated in the middle east for 3,500 years by the annual erection of the djed cross that symbolized the spine of Osiris‘

Aaron G. Filler on Morotopithecus bishopi:
‘In most vertebrates (including most mammals), he explains, the dividing plane between the front (ventral) part of the body and the back (dorsal) part is a “horizontal septum” that runs in front of the spinal canal. This is a fundamental aspect of animal architecture. A bizarre birth defect in what may have been the first direct human ancestor led to the “transposition” of the septum to a position behind the spinal cord in the lumbar region. Oddly enough, this configuration is more typical of invertebrates.
The mechanical effect of the transposition was to make horizontal or quadrupedal stance inefficient. “Any mammal with this set of changes would only be comfortable standing upright. I would envision this malformed young hominiform – the first true ancestral human – as standing upright from a young age while its siblings walked around on all fours.”
The earliest example of the transformed hominiform type of lumbar spine is found in Morotopithecus bishopi an extinct hominoid species that lived in Uganda more than 21 million years ago. “From a number of points of view,” Filler says, “humanity can be redefined as having its origin with Morotopithecus. This greatly demotes the importance of the bipedalism of Australopithecus species such as Lucy (Australopithecus afarensis) since we now know of four upright bipedal species that precede her, found from various time periods on out to Morotopithecus in the Early Miocene.”

As a mythologist and researcher into ancient mysteries, Mr Broadhurst has spent a number of years travelling across Europe and Egypt and has unravelled what he says is “a story of how a primeval god was absorbed by early Christianity so that pagan beliefs were incorporated into the new religion.” He goes on to explain that this knowledge was understood by the mystical Knights Templar, who became a powerful force in the medieval world and adopted St George as their patron saint.
He comments “The facts are that Constantine the Great, who created Christianity as we know it, was desperate to keep the crumbling Roman Empire together and was obliged to adapt many of the pre-Christian belief systems to make the new religion work. You can tell that George was a god of the earth through the etymology of his name, which contains the component Ge not once but twice. This is one of the oldest words for the earth known, going back to Egyptian and Sumerian times, over 5000 years ago. We still use it today in words such as Geography, Geology and many other sciences to do with studying the planet.”
Most Baconians are familiar with the symbolism of Shake-speare as Pallas Athena the Spear Shaker, but the name has another, more concealed meaning. In Syria, where the cult originated, Kidhr is equated with St. George (who is the patron saint of England).
According to Idries Shah, The Order of The Garter in England (whose patron saint is St. George) derived from the Sufi Khidr Order. Sufis have sometimes rendered Shakespeare in perfectly correct and acceptable Persian as Sheikh-Peer, “The Ancient Sage.” William Shakespeare, and Miguel Cervantes, both of whom Bacon utilized as his masks, are recorded as dying on the birthday of St. George. In the Anatomy of Melancholy, when referring to “that omniscious, only wise fraternity of the Rosie Cross” Bacon names their head as “Elias Artifex, their Theophrastian master” and then describes him as “the renewer of all arts and sciences, reformer of the world, and now living.” Since, the Great Instauration, (the renewal of all arts and sciences), was Bacon’s work, the implication is that Bacon himself was head of the Rosicrucian Fraternity, and that Bacon was Elias who was Kidhr, The Green One, the supernatural figure who is the hidden guide, and patron of the Sufi Orders.
What Lies behind the mask of St George? Most modern researchers believe he never existed as a historical character, and yet he is still revered throughout the world as an inspirational guide and spiritual power.
The truth is that he is far older than we might imagine, pre-dating Christianity by many thousands of years. He has powerful links with the enigmatic Green Man and also the Knights Templar who understood the mystical traditions of those former times.
Is he really an ancient God of the Earth from the very beginnings of time?
This quest to discover the real St George leads to Ancient Egypt, the Holy Land, the megalithic temples of Britain and Ireland and the churches and cathedrals of Europe. It is the story of human evolution from the earliest times, and includes the rediscovery of a science of the forces of Nature, symbolised by the Dragon.
