More to American / religious history than meets the eye

The America we know of is not all it seems. America and the founding fathers were not as Christian as once widely thought. There are many facts regarding history, religion and politics which the public are essentially uninformed of. I found out that there is ancient commonalities which play key roles in all religions, which was shocking.

Most of the founding fathers and prominent people in the world were known as “deists” or Freemasons, among other things. It is considered by historians that Freemason George Washington’s Christian church-going was only a facade to stray the public away from his true and sensitive beliefs at the time…

Taken from wikipedia page about Washington’s religious views:

The record of his taking communion was spotty.[16] Ministers at four of the churches Washington often attended wrote that he regularly left services before communion. When Rev. Dr. James Abercrombie, rector of St. Peter’s Episcopal Church, in Philadelphia, mentioned in a weekly sermon that those in elevated stations set an unhappy example by leaving at communion, Washington completely stopped attending that church on communion Sundays.[17][18] Long after Washington died, when asked about Washington’s beliefs, Abercrombie replied: “Sir, Washington was a Deist!”[19]

Also, Benjamin Franklin was known to be a member and/or attendee of the satanic “Hellfire Club” and a Freemason. Dismembered bodies (of children) were found under his old home. Some dispute the claimed excuses of “medical experimentation / examination,” sighting that the skeletons showed signs of abuse and mistreatment.

There are too many notable mysterious connections to people and groups to even list here. Below is an actual American treaty which exposes how America was not a Christian nation.

Treaty of Peace and Friendship, Signed at Tripoli November 4, 1796:

As the government of the United States of America is not in any sense founded on the Christian Religion,-as it has in itself no character of enmity against the laws, religion or tranquility of Musselmen,-and as the said States never have entered into any war or act of hostility against any Mehomitan nation, it is declared by the parties that no pretext arising from religious opinions shall ever produce an interruption of the harmony existing between the two countries.

Thomas Paine, friend of the founding fathers, in his book The Age of Reason:

“Masonry (as I shall show from the customs, ceremonies, hieroglyphics, and chronology of Masonry) is derived and is the remains of the religion of the ancient Druids; who, like the Magi of Persia and the Priests of Heliopolis in Egypt, were Priests of the Sun.”

“The christian religion and Masonry have one and the same common origin: both are derived from the worship of the Sun. The difference between their origin is, that the christian religion is a parody on the worship of the Sun, in which they put a man whom they call Christ, in the place of the Sun”

“The religion of the Druids, as before said, was the same as the religion of the ancient Egyptians. The priests of Egypt were the professors and teachers of science, and were styled priests of Heliopolis, that is, of the City of the Sun.”

“the christian religion over-ran the religion of the Druids in Italy, ancient Gaul, Britain, and Ireland, the Druids became the subject of persecution. This would naturally and necessarily oblige such of them as remained attached to their original religion to meet in secret, and under the strongest injunctions of secrecy. Their safety depended upon it. A false brother might expose the lives of many of them to destruction; and from the remains of the religion of the Druids, thus preserved, arose the institution which, to avoid the name of Druid, took that of Mason, and practiced under this new name the rites and ceremonies of Druids.”

So as we can see there is at least a little more to America’s history than meets the eye, including its name. We thought the name America comes from the Italian navigator who explored the Americas, Amerigo Vespucci. So then why did “Amerigo” have his name changed from Alberigo to Amerigo after his voyages to the new world? Quite a few researchers attest to this.

Felipe Fernandez-Armesto claims:

“In the very year in which America was named, the first Italian version of an account, under Vespucci’s name, of what he called Mundus Novus appeared. But the printer got the name of the author wrong. He set it as Alberico Vespucci. …it seems to me striking that in the very moment when the world began to name the continent after Amerigo, the printer of one of the key works got the namesake’s name wrong.”

This may be way the Encyclopedia Virginia page on Vespucci’s Mundus Novus currently does not list an author. It says “Unknown” where it should say the name of the author. The book Bibliotheca Americana: A Catalogue of Books Relating to North and South America in the library of John Carter Brown of Providence, R.I. Part I. – 1493-1600 attests to Mr. Vespucci’s first name being “Albericus” which seems to be a Latinized form of Alberic, Alberico/Alberigo. Here is another work which states his name to be Alberic Vespucci…

If the Americas were truly named after this man you would think the name “Vespuccia” would be chosen after his last name. There is another man who is falsely accused of being America’s namesake known as Richard Amerike, who nobody ever heard of until Amerigo wasn’t thought to be America’s real namesake. To me, the theories of America being named after real people do not seem to add up.

One theory is different from the rest, however.

In the chapter titled “American Indian Symbolism” in his book, The Secret Teachings of All Ages, high ranking and world renown Freemason Manly P. Hall states:

“…Children of the Sun adore the Plumèd Serpent, who is the messenger of the Sun. He was the God Quetzalcoatl in Mexico, Gucumatz in Quiché; and in Peru he was called Amaru. From the latter name comes our word America. Amaruca is, literally translated, ‘Land of the Plumèd Serpent.’ The priests of this God of Peace, from their chief centre in the Cordilleras, once ruled both Americas. All the Red men who have remained true to the ancient religion are still under their sway. One of their strong centres was in Guatemala, and of their order was the author of the book called Popul Vuh. In the Quiché tongue Gucumatz is the exact equivalent of Quetzalcoatl in the Nahuatl language; quetzal, the bird of paradise; coatl, serpent – ‘the Serpent veiled in plumes of the paradise bird’!”

Hall asserts that the esoteric doctrines of the Mystery schools, which Freemasonry draws from, were essentially disseminated across the world and its various peoples and religions thousands of years ago, including the native tribes of the Americas. The uncanny similarities shared between seemingly dissociated (ancient to modern) religions and cultures may be a testament to this.

“…The second book of the Popul Vuh is largely devoted to the initiatory rituals of the Quiché nation. These ceremonials are of first importance to students of Masonic symbolism and mystical philosophy, since they establish beyond doubt the existence of ancient and divinely instituted Mystery schools on the American Continent.”

“…Serpent worship in some form has permeated nearly all parts of the earth. The serpent mounds of the American Indian; the carved-stone snakes of Central and South America; the hooded cobras of India; Python, the great snake of the Greeks; the sacred serpents of the Druids; the Midgard snake of Scandinavia; the Nagas of Burma, Siam, and Cambodia; the brazen serpent of the Jews; the mystic serpent of Orpheus; the snakes at the oracle of Delphi twining themselves around the tripod upon which the Pythian priestess sat, the tripod itself being in the form of twisted serpents; the sacred serpents preserved in the Egyptian temples; the Uraeus coiled upon the foreheads of the Pharoahs and priests; – all these bear witness to the universal veneration in which the snake was held…”

It is known that many people from different societies travelled to America before Columbus… The fact that we are all lied to about these pre-Columbian discoveries is another issue entirely…

Although some groups venerate serpents, we should pay attention to the duality of serpent symbolism. In certain traditions the serpent is a symbol of immortality and/or knowledge; in others it is a dual representative of both good and evil. In some it is a symbol of evil and/or immoral behavior. To Christians, Lucifer and Satan are evil and correspond to the symbolism of the serpent.

Manly P. Hall in The Secret Teachings of All Ages:

“Certain Rosicrucian scholars have given special appellations to [the] three phases of the sun: the spiritual sun they called Vulcan; the soular and intellectual sun, Christ and Lucifer respectively; and the material sun, the Jewish Demiurgus Jehova. Lucifer here represents the intellectual mind without the illumination of the spiritual mind; therefore it is “the false light.” The false light is finally overcome and redeemed by the true light of the soul, called the second Logos or Christ. The secret processes by which the Luciferian intellect is transmuted into the Christly intellect constitute one of the great secrets of alchemy, and are symbolized by the process of transmuting base metals into gold.”

“The antipathy which Christendom feels toward the snake is based upon the little-understood allegory of the Garden of Eden. The serpent is true to the principal of wisdom, for it tempts man to the knowledge of himself. Therefore the knowledge of self resulted from man’s disobedience to the Demiurgus, Jehova. How the serpent came to be in the garden of the Lord after God had declared that all creatures which He had made during the six days of creation were good has not been satisfactorily answered by the interpreters of scripture. The tree that grows in the midst of the garden is the spinal fire; the knowledge of the use of that spinal fire is the gift of the great serpent. Notwithstanding statements to the contrary, the serpent is the symbol and prototype of the Universal Savior, who redeems the worlds by giving creation the knowledge of itselfand the realization of good and evil.”

Albert Pike, considered the Pope of Freemasonry, in his book Morals and Dogma of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry:

“Lucifer, the Light-bearer!  Strange and mysterious name to give to the Spirit of Darkness!  Lucifer, the Son of the Morning!  Is it he who bears the Light, and with its splendors intolerable, blinds feeble, sensual, or selfish souls?  Doubt it not!”

Manly P. Hall founded the Philosophical Research Society in Los Angeles which houses the Wisdom Library. The texts within the Wisdom Library were microfiched by President Franklin Delano Roosevelt after the Pearl Harbor attacks, due to their importance, according to Obadiah Harris who is the president of the Philosophical Research Society. This gives a testament to esoteric works being more than mere fantastical fiction; these ideas are in fact taken seriously by apparent sophisticated individuals in high places throughout time.

FDR was a high ranking Freemason like many American presidents and other people in high places of American life. This was revealed by Henry A. Wallace, another high ranking Freemason, in his personal letters. Wallace was Secretary of Agriculture under FDR and claimed to be the man who introduced the idea of putting the Great Seal on US dollars to FDR. The founding fathers were Freemasons, hell, almost all of the elites are part of some sort of esoteric group. America is said to be a land of Freemasonry.

So now that we understand the connections of America to Freemasonry and Freemasonry to esoteric serpent / Lucifer worship, it is not hard to see why Manly P. Hall may be right about the origin of America’s name.

The exoteric meaning of the name “America” may correspond to any of the popular proposed origins such as Amerigo Vespucci or Richard Amerike while the esoteric meaning may correspond to Amaruca, land of the plumed serpent.

  1. I’m sure that it is no coincidence these documents are from 1492, which was after Columbus’ voyage and the popular knowledge of their being a “New world” of “Amaruca” or “America.” I don’t feel like translating the blog.

    Edit* That’s your blog, isn’t it? The least you could have done was translate it for me. I am not convinced by your claims of evidence to refute this.


  2. With all due respect, there is plenty of evidence to refute the alleged change of Amerigo Vespucci’s name “after his voyages to the new world”. Numerous Spanish administrative documents from 1492-1496, well before he first crossed the Atlantic, call him ‘Amerigo’. You can find an example in the second image of this blog post (Amerigo is the last word of the first line):
