Vatic Note: This started out as a curiosity piece, but soon evolved into a must read. It has so much in here, even the mention of RH neg blood, as well as historical and mythical similarities between cultures where the people seldom or never left their homes, so how did these snakes make their way across every single sentient culture on this planet and yet, the stories behind them are similar. Now how could two major coincidences occur at the same time? Unless they represent something more than just myth or stories.
This covers cultures all the way from the Aztec to the Libyan coastline, and onto the land of China, including a detailed look at the Basque and their RH neg blood. What diverse cultures these are and yet, here is their common thread, which are the myths of the snake. Even in the Bible we have the snake playing a very large part in the fall of man and the need for the savior and that is not all, there is more and its why I highly recommend it as a great read.
You will also notice from the photos of relics, how similar the snakes look as well. No photography in those days, no TV, no Movies, No plane travel, so how did these images make it across the globe and insert themselves into these myths and legends? Then, surprise of all surprises, we come to the natives of California where the myth expands into inbreeding between the snakes and humans. California of all places. Although, I can see, the governor there is a snake if I ever saw one. Oops, I was not going to do that, but alas, its done, too late. lol
There is one legend they cover here that is fascinating about how a snake takes on the shape of a man four times and on the 5th, showed himself as a snake. Now that reminds me of the time I saw G HW Bush get mad and lose his composure and when he did, his face, eyes, tongue and nose turned into more like a lizard.
It was a raw live feed event and I never saw it replayed on the news. However, I know what I saw and it only lasted a few seconds, but it was enough to get the jist of what we were looking at. And you thought he was just CIA. You read and decide and enjoy the journey.
