Episode #145: The Gods of Eden - Part 4

We continue to follow Bramley's "Custodial" powers up through history as the Brotherhood continues to splinter and create warring factions across the globe, keeping humans splintered and scattered and fighting amongst each other while these ancient powers pull strings in the background. We look at the early formation of Christianity and how it changed when governmental powers moved in and absorbed it. We look at the beginnings of the Islamic faith, and the splintering and factioning that happened soon after. We look at the crusades, the Knights of St. John who became the Knights of Malta, and the Templars who became the Knights of Christ and later, the Freemasons. We look at the Assassins, and the powerful tool of the "lone assassin".

We also read a lot of listener communications talking about the previous Gods of Eden episodes, read an article from the Cosmic Tusk about space bacteria, and Kyle reads another great article written by a skerptard on the life and ideas of Dr. Freeman Dyson, which spurs a short conversation on the concept of "macrostructures" like the Dyson Sphere.

Episode #143: The Gods of Eden - Part 2

We continue our deep dive into William Bramley's book, The Gods of Eden, looking at ancient traditions and accounts of the "gods" that have seemingly ruled mankind since furthest antiquity, and may be the cause of the continuous conflict all over the world, for thousands of years.

Episode #142: The Gods of Eden - Part 1

We begin a new book report into William Bramley's book, The Gods of Eden. In this first part, we go through Bramley's introduction into his reasons for writing the book, what his original research was searching for, and what he actually found. What are the real reasons behind humanity's constant wars? Is there a hidden third faction lurking in the shadows of these conflicts?

Bramley starts at the beginning of recorded history to track down the answers of these questions, starting with the Sumerian civilization.
