Prologue: Second Edition

Sir Francis Bacon called history a “shipwreck from which the only salvage is a few planks.”  Even keepers of journals are hard pressed to recall crucial details and professionals all know that human testimony often falls apart under astute cross-examination. It also seems—to this writer—that insufficient credit is given to ignorance while too much credibility is bestowed upon what we think we know. Another common error is to assume that things unseen and events beyond our ken do not exist, as if pre-history’s theatre hosted trivial ‘non-events’; for it is surely possible that unknown cultures lay buried beneath the rocks and waves of time’s seasonal reckonings.[1]

Adding further insult to this muddle, scholars admit that recorded history is written by victorious rascals who dress skullduggery in odes to decency.  As for religion: it is accepted among the truly learned that organized creeds are required to facilitate “civilized” progress, otherwise co-operative conformity would never lend itself to the disciplines that wealth-confiscators who re-write history require.  The economics fostered by time-honored mythology favor the enforcement of these cooperative efforts by means of adjustable fear factors that invariably need resuscitation vis-à-vis what Ibn Khaldun called ‘Myths of Origin’.  It also seems our global tyrants repeatedly slaughter an excess majority, sparing enough slaves to feed them along with the fascisto gangs and legions of bureaucratic gnomes required to facilitate the practiced fleecing. Much like Stalin, Mao, the Church of Rome and Islam’s Pretenders, our imperious elite foster sufficient lies and terror enough for a mere culling of the foolishly brave and antithetically sagacious.  Nevertheless, and presently, a change is in the wind of this periodic and previously adjustable-small-scale genocide, as it seems a full two-thirds of the world’s six-plus billion face therapeutic cleansing.  To enable the desired slaughter, the NWO mob enhances its position via World Councils of wise guys with vested scholars in tow to which ecumenical priesthoods gather like so many fattened buzzards.

Chaldean and Egyptian priests were called Magi or Masters of Illusion; i.e., political doublespeak, spellbinding mesmerism and even genuine sorcery. Furthermore, and to endorse my position with an ancient pen, Strabo wrote in the first century BC:

  • “The simple-minded cannot be managed without the bug-bear of mythical gods with thunderbolts; therefore the founders of States gave them sanction.  This is the true nature and purpose of mythology!”

This wizened principle of governance presents cogent Monotheists with a dilemma that defies common notions of discourse.  Rather than “how do we understand each other well enough to get along?’ ― as per the plea of dissipating Rodney King types and Jesuit multiculturalists ― the apical questions of import should rather read: “Which polity is subject to bug-bear theocracy?” … and … “Who are the Liars responsible?”  I’m audacious enough to answer the first query with: ‘the un-repentant majority of our species’.  As for the second, I suggest that one does indeed need to read history as written by the victors, because the answer’s are made clear enough for those with discernment. Hence, the significant matter is the nature of this discernment, which is, as the truly learned know, the stuff of divine revelation.

The cited mythical regulation is unnecessary for those fortunate enough to accept the faith of Abraham with knowledge, and for others such as the Lakota or disciples of Lao Tse who’ve remained faithful to their prophets.  The caveat being that this holds true only when patriarchal government is administered with justice.  Unfortunately, this has not been the sustained example of Monotheism’s pretentious partisans. Myth mongers have indeed usurped prophetic staves and continuously rule men of all creeds vis-à-vis traditional bugaboos and bogey hype.  Occasionally augmenting their hold on the gauntlet with timely terror of auspicious moment, Granfalloons [2] of mischief mongering kill just enough bees to keep hives profitably serviced by thoroughly cowed and metaphysically gelded drones. But they are not alone in the game. Indeed, our bugaboos and bogies have ancient roots that present their influence within and without the circles of Granfallooney leadership.  Most certainly they exist and I posit that the present world crisis is fruit enough of their mischief making councils as the Quran has made exquisitely clear:

  • “Thus to those without Faith their own deeds seem pleasing. Thus we have placed leaders in every town, its wicked men, to plot and burrow therein, but they only plot against their own souls, and perceive it not.”
  • “On the Day He gathers them all together, He will say to the angels: “Was it you these people worshiped?” They will reply, “May You be exalted! You are our supporter against them! Really, they worshiped the jinn and most of them believed in them.”
  • “Yet they make the jinns equal with Allah, though Allah did create the jinns; and they falsely attribute unto Him sons and daughters.”
  • “When they meet with those who believe, they say, ‘We too believe,’ but when they are alone with their own (jinn) satans, they say, ‘we are with you, we are only joking with Muslims.’”

Al’Qur’an 6: 123-124 / 34: 40-41 / 6: 100 / 2:14

Therefore I ask the following: By whose counsel and leave were the Star and Crescent and Solar Cross of ancient Sumerian idolatry given esteem enough to represent Islam and Christianity respectively?  And by whose ignorance and hand does the idolatry persist amongst peoples who consider themselves the so-called, ‘faithful’?

As I sit in Northern Thailand on a brief holiday (Nov, 2010), I prepare to meet new challenges on this road of exposition.  It has been three and a half years since Emeritus Prof. Osman Bakar read the manuscript for this book’s first edition, after which he secured me a position as Research Fellow at ISTAC, KL, Malaysia.  Since then I have had the privilege of completing five additional books totaling more than 2,000 pages, most of which deal with matters first introduced here in an archetypal, pan-historic fashion.

A little has been added to this second edition with respect to content as I amended a few statements according to knowledge gained.  I inserted one brief chapter (Trees & Roots) as well as a detailed index and historical charts showing pertinent events.  While the index is new, the charts were initiated some five years ago but sat on a cyber-shelf all this while till I had time enough to dust them off.  The chapter on Biblical Trees and Roots furthers research and thoughts that followed the first edition’s publication in England.

I encourage you to pass this book on to Christians in particular, as it is a bold and guileless reaction to my discovery of the Trinitarian myth that bound my mind and soul for 54 years.  I earnestly tried to thoroughly debunk its theological and scriptural basis and quite frankly I think Martin Luther would revert to Islam after reading this tome.  If anyone deserves credit for such a claim, it is Allah swt, for He surely answered fervent prayers and has guided my search and pen while confirming my exiled steps.

If I have erred along the way, I beg His mercy yet again.  Even so, I beg yours as well dear reader.  The journey you are about to take will change you so completely that I charge you not to fault me as author nor scorn me as messenger.  And, if you see any inaccuracy herein, be gracious enough to correct me charitably; but please make as certain of your steps as I have.

Omar Zaid, M.D.
