Bestiality or Zoosexuality in Sacred Culture: Magical-Ritual Symbolization of Body-Spirit Dualism (Part 2)

Frankfurt Jews(Note: This is Part 2 of a 3-Part series: See Part one: Bestiality or Zoosexuality in Sacred Culture: Paleolithic Cult Origins of Animal Form Portraiture of Deity)

There appears to have been a substitution of Mother, as model of the material in dualistic mystical thought, with Animal. This symbolic substitution was accompanied, in the Paleolithic animal fertility cult, by the substitution of mother-son incestuous ritual with shaman-animal zoosexual ritual.

Symbolic substitution of Mother with Animal in the fertility cult religious-mystical thought system underlies the survival into historic times of animal form representations of deity and magical-ritual zoosexuality or bestiality in fertility religion.

The "Master of Animals," in incestuous ritual magical union with The Mother, was also conceived of as being in body-spirit dualistic union with the "beasts" he mastered magically by creative-artistic work in cave temples. The Paleolithic "Master of Animals," symbolized his body-spirit metaphysical dualistic union with the Animal in his self-portraiture as half-animal, half-man in the Paleolithic cave paintings.

The extensive evidence of the practice of zoosexual magical ritual  in the mother goddess fertility cult in ancient times (Leviticus 18: 22) merely reflects the practice in the Paleolithic animal fertility cult of its origins. The "Master of Animals" who sought magical mastery of specific animal species sealed his "mastery" of the species in magical ritual zoosexual ceremony. Thus, the Baal deity of Canaanite religion was known in historic times as "Master and Husband of Beasts," and devotees followed the pattern laid down by the mythical "husband" of beasts in zoosexual ritual orgies alongside incestuous ritual orgies.

The spiritual-sexual union of "master" of an animal species with the animal species he mastered developed in to the worship of animals as "familiars" of  deity. It may, understandably, be difficult in modern times to fully appreciate the popularity and widespread nature of the "animistic" beliefs which informed the wild proliferation of animal familiars of  the gods.

Juvenal would ridicule the Egyptians for their reprehensible habit of animal worship, but the Egyptian world of animals was a thin facade behind which lurked myriads of "spirit husbands" which mortals had to reckon with in daily life. In Egyptian thought, particular gods, spirits and daemons (both good and evil) possessed particular species of animals. The black pig, for instance, was associated with the evil god Seth, but the pig could also be a form of the good deity Osiris. The Ox was taken to be an incarnation of Isis but it could also be possessed by an evil spirit which made it gore its owner. Serpents and crocodiles could, in certain circumstances, be friendly and in others be malevolent: it all depended on the nature of the spirit which possessed the animal at the relevant moment in time.

The identification of the cow with mother goddesses, especially in Ancient Egypt,  is consistent with psychoanalytic theory's symbolic association of large animals with the gravid  mother. Thus, the sacred cow was identified with Isis, Nepthys, Hathor and Nut in Ancient Egypt. Isis, in fusion with Taweret, was identified with the female hippopotamus as  goddess of maternity.

The preoccupation of Ancient Egyptian  religion with animals as material or physical form representation of the gods, confirms the identification of animal familiars of "spirits" with The Mother in religious thought, for The Mother was to the Ancients the  ideal model of the material principle in body-spirit dualistic thought. The animal, thus, becomes a substitute for Mother in the unabashedly incestuous sexual reproductive myths of origins.

The identification of Animal with Mother is also evident in the chaos-egg myths of ancient cultures. The masculine primal deities (that is, deities associated with cosmic origins) of Ancient Egypt were all described as "hidden" deities, usually "hidden in the egg" (the egg being a womb symbol). The souls of the deities Ra, Ptah, Khnum and Osiris are all "hidden" in their origins in the egg. Likewise, the deities Amun, Sokar and Neith. The chaos-egg myth, in its association with primal deities, is obviously symbolic representation of  the womb and birth in mystical-religious thought.

The inextricable ties of Ancient Egyptian religion with animals emphasizes the origins of Ancient Egyptian religion in the Paleolithic animal fertility cult. Almost every animal the Egyptians knew had a "spirit husband" associated with it. Even the ichneumon fly and dung beetle were held in religious reverence! The conviction of the Ancient Egyptians that the gods preferred to manifest to humans as animals can be explained only by assumption of an animal fertility cult origin for the religions of the Ancient Egyptians.

    The foundation of hatred against the gay, zoosexual, and any sex is a foundation of sand.  Sodom, and Gomorrah's sin was sex.  I will demonstrate that by showing what is in Isaiah 1 KJV .  Sodom, and Gomorrah's sin was not sex at all. Sacrificing, and oppressing was Sodom, and Gomorrah sin. Terrorists in the middle east oppress humans with fear of when the next bomb blast is going to be. Oppression keeps zoosexuals from relaxing like the non human animals do naturally. Isaiah 1 KJV 10 on down shows that sex is not the sin. 10-11; Hear the word of the LORD, ye rulers of Sodom; give ear unto the law of our God, ye people of Gomorrah.
    11To what purpose is the multitude of your sacrifices unto me? saith the LORD: I am full of the burnt offerings of rams, and the fat of fed beasts; and I delight not in the blood of bullocks, or of lambs, or of he goats.
    How could humans call Sodom's sin sex?
    Humans have been lied to by humans emulating the Sodom, and Gomorrah humans.
    verse 15 – 17:And when ye spread forth your hands, I will hide mine eyes from you: yea, when ye make many prayers, I will not hear: your hands are full of blood.
    16Wash you, make you clean; put away the evil of your doings from before mine eyes; cease to do evil;
    17Learn to do well; seek judgment, relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow.
    None of this has to do with any sex. Humans have been oppressed by the real Sodom, and Gomorrah humans.
    Even the KJV wants to manifest that humans are a beast too. Ecclesiastes 3;18 – 20; 18I said in mine heart concerning the estate of the sons of men, that God might manifest them, and that they might see that they themselves are beasts. 19For that which befalleth the sons of men befalleth beasts; even one thing befalleth them: as the one dieth, so dieth the other; yea, they have all one breath; so that a man hath no preeminence above a beast: for all is vanity. 20All go unto one place; all are of the dust, and all turn to dust again.
    Humans are born, die the same as a beast. One needs salvation, and the other is saved. We breath, eat, drink, poop, urinate. We are made of eukaryote cells, have sex, physiologically, biologically, scientifically, chemically, microscopically, instinctually the fight or flight response, and have territorial instincts of an animal putting up fences, and no trespassing signs. Therefore sex one animal to another animal, and even one beast to another beast. To manifest is to reveal, and I am revealing to you that humans are beasts too.~~~~Artiewhitefox

    People against the zoo want what God called abominable.

    KJV, Pro; 6;16 These six things doth
    the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: A proud look,
    a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,

    Spilling blood in war, and arresting people is what God hates . It just so happens that that is exactly what religious people did to Jesus. Scripture shows their intent, but the preacher in the pulpit will be mum abut those verses, King James version.
    Mark 14:1:9 , John, 12:10.
    That means that religious people that Jesus chastised are against the zoosexual doing one thing, Sex.with people chattering like devils against them trying to make them look bad even as religious people tried to make Jesus look bad.
