While it would be easy to argue that organized religion never found its way, the follow news is interesting:

("Detroit News", March 24, 2009)

"Detroit, USA - Americans are identifying less and less with organized religion, concludes the latest American Religious Identification Survey, which is causing a great deal of concern in the religious world.

Clergy have been quick to blame society for a lack of values. It is more likely that many of us religious leaders have lost our way.

We religious leaders become involved in politics instead of justice, in business instead of charity. We scold instead of comfort. We judge instead of truly love. People are leaving their denominations not because they do not care about God and spirit, but because their denomination has become irrelevant."

Perhaps this guy read WAKING GOD? Kind of remind me of the 'money changers.' The problem with most religious leaders is that they try to control and not facilitate. The attitude has always been one of, "We know the truth, you don't, so do as we say." Around that mindset religious organizations have built multi-billion dollar empires that have manipulated sacred texts for their own self-serving purposes. They have caused wars, genocide, racism, and discord all in the interests of God? Don't think so. You see, Christians have this thing about making everyone like them. They may reluctantly tolerate the beliefs of others on the surface, but always, the underlying agenda is to convert. This is why they are becoming irrelevant. Everyone does not want to be a Christian. Even Muslims do not send missionaries to foreign lands to convert people to their faith. Yes, Muslim extremists see Christians as Satan incarnate, but as long as you leave them alone, they tend to leave you alone. In the good old days Muslims were actually very tolerant of Christians, Jews and others. The problem is that anytime the U.S. has a presence in a foreign country, the first thing that happens is that churches get built and tensions rise since the Christians won't stop spreading 'the good word.'

Both Waking God and the Sacred Rota expose this tendency and leave you wondering how can so many millions be fooled so easily. Jesus said that you will know his true followers because they will do as he did. Hmmmm, makes you wonder! Water anyone?

LUANDA, Angola – "Pope Benedict XVI appealed to the Catholics of Angola on Saturday to reach out to and convert believers in witchcraft who feel threatened by "spirits" and "evil powers" of sorcery.

In Africa, some churchgoing Catholics also follow traditional animist religions and consult medicine men and diviners who are condemned by the church. People accused of sorcery or of being possessed by evil powers sometimes are killed by fearful mobs.

Benedict counseled Catholics to "live peacefully" with animists and other nonbelievers and urged Angolans to be the "new missionaries" to bring people who believe in sorcery to Christ." (AP)

So here is the deal, the Pope wants to get rid of the old religions and convert the Africans to Catholics. Does this sound familiar? Has not this always been the problem of organized religion? There is no desire to respect and live side-by-side with others of different beliefs. One cannot help but wonder who is burning and murdering those who are "filled with evil?" Christians, maybe? Why are medicine men and diviners condemned by the Church? Do you not think that inflames murder? The WAKING GOD books explain the problems of organized religion and why they serve to divide people, stir enmity and promote violence. This is a return to the Dark Age thinking. Actually, the Church has never really left the Dark Ages. Fundamental Protestants, Muslims, Hindus and Catholics seek to make everyone like them, regardless of the cost. As we move closer to 2012, adherents to these outdated ideas are becoming more violent. They are losing their grip on society, as well they should, but are also reverting to witch hunts to silence those who dissent. Want to know why many have problems using the Law of Attraction to better their lives, just read religious headlines.

St. Patrick and Pagans

This was a great post. Christians frequently raise to sainthood those that have killed and plundered in the name of God.

Why pagans don't celebrate St. Patrick's Day

Patrick was a Christian priest whose job it was to convert the population of Ireland to Christianity. The Druids, however, stood in his way. The Druids were very important people in Ireland at that time, and their symbol was the Snake of Wisdom. Druids could be priests of the old religion of Ireland, but there were also much more.

One part of the Druid class were the "Bards", whose job it was to remember all of the history of the people, as well as to record current events. Because the Irish Celts did not rely on a written language, everything had to be memorized. Bards were poets and musicians, and used music and poetry to help them remember their history exactly. Because of this, Bards were highly respected members of the Irish society. The Irish believed that history was very important, for if you didn't remember what had happened in the past, you couldn't safely plan for the future. Bards, therefore, held the future of the people in safekeeping.

Another important part of the Druidic class were the "Brehons". Brehons were the Judges and the Keepers of the Laws. The Celtic people had a highly complicated society, and with it, a highly developed set of laws. Brehons trained for many years to learn the laws of the people, so that whenever there was a dispute, the Brehon could
fairly decide the matter and make peace. The laws were there to make sure that everyone; man, woman, and child, were treated fairly and with respect. Because of the wisdom that the Brehons held, and the knowledge of the laws of the society, they too, like the Bards, were held with much respect.

And, of course, there were the Druid Priests. This branch of the Druid set were the keepers of the knowledge of Earth and Spirits. It was their responsibility to learn the Spirit World, in order to keep people and Earth in harmony. Priests performed marriages and "baptisms", they were healers, and psychiatrists. The Priests were
the wise grandparents to whom you could go with a problem. They were there to help you solve them, with the help of the Earth and the Spirit World.

Into this world of the Irish Celts entered a highly energetic and devoted Christian Priest named Patrick. Because he believed so strongly in the tenets of Christianity, he thought that anyone who was not Christian had to become one in order to be "saved". He came to Ireland to convert the Irish people to Christianity.

The Irish people at that time were happy and doing quite well without Patrick and his ideas, but he was persistent. He noticed that the Druids were really the important people of the society. He thought that if he could convert the Druids to Christianity, the rest of the people would follow. Patrick's main problem was that the Druids were very
comfortable with what they had already learned, and were not willing to change. Druids had spent their entire lives learning the ways of the people, and were the last people who were willing to change.

Although Patrick was not willing to abandon his vision of a Christian Ireland, he was getting desperate. He knew that because the strength of the people rested with the Druids, he had to get rid of them in order to get the people to listen to him.

Patrick was not alone in his efforts. He had brought many people with him from Britain to establish the new religion. Patrick began to destroy the influence of the Druids by destroying the sacred sites of the people and building churches and monasteries where the Druids used to live and teach. Gradually, the might of the Druidic class was broken by a bitter campaign of attrition. Instead of hearing the teachings and advice of the Druids, the people began to hear the teachings of Rome. Because the Druids were the only ones who were taught to remember the history, with the Druids dead and their influence broken, the history was forgotten.

Patrick won. By killing off the teachers and the wise ones, his own religion could be taught. For this mass conversion of a culture to Christianity, and for the killing of thousands of innocent people, Patrick was made a Saint by his church.

So while I love my Irish heritage and the culture I do not celebrate the murder of my ancestors or the man that murdered them.

For Immediate Release

Explaining the Rise of Religious Fundamentalism
In almost all of the planet’s major organized religions, there is a strong movement towards a return to religious fundamentalism and a focus on “worn out dogma.” Two new books explain the basic reasons why growing intolerance and even violence have gripped the hard core faithful. WAKING GOD BOOK I: Let the Journey Begin and The Sacred Rota expose, in the guise of novels, what has gone terribly wrong with religion.
With the stage set in Book I concerning religious domination of human thought, THE SACRED ROTA opens doors that many would prefer stay closed. Continuing with the fast paced action of Book I, humanity is beset with growing problems reminiscent of the ancient Biblical plagues. The battle between the Archangel Michael and Mantrella (a.k.a. Lucifer) intensifies as conception of the Old Testament’s Adam becomes a certainty. The rise to power of the UN’s David Dajjal, a puppet of Michael’s, sets the stage for world domination by the Bilderberg Group. New information is revealed about the Tarot Code, the blueprint for man’s future spiritual and physical evolution, and the role of the church’s Sacred Rota in the epic conspiracy to keep humanity in ignorance and ancient institutions in power. Will the hidden god seed in our DNA be activated with Adam’s birth or will secret powers maintain their domination of our destiny?
New York Times bestselling author, Piers Anthony says, “I have read Waking God II. There are nice action sequences, and nice theological discussions… I do find the novel intriguing, especially in its boldness of philosophy… I am not aware of anyone else doing this type of thing, though I haven't read The Da Vinci Code, which may be in a similar ballpark.”
Both novels are published by Literary Road Press and are available on

From a post Marvin made on his Blog!

The Waking God series, co-authored by Philip Harris and Brian Doe is a most worthy and pertinent read. I've read the first book and intend to follow the whole series. A very enlightened (as well as researched) take on the whole Adam/God/Man/Christ/Lucifer beginnings and evolution into the spiritual world we now occupy and for the most part are misinformed and do misunderstand.

“You will not win,” Michael said in anger and confidence.
“It is not about winning,” Mantrella said quietly. “There comes a time when all gods die.”
“Fine, Michael. There comes a time when all gods move on, evolve to whatever they evolve to. For humans, it is the same thing as death. Once removed from thought, the gods are dead,” Mantrella said.
“And you think that you can remove the Elohim from human memory?” Michael laughed in a tone that was ridicule, not humor.
“When the god seed is awakened, your gods will die, Michael.”
“Ah yes, your precious god seed,” Michael sneered.
The darkness was limitless in this no place. The only light that shone was the holographic like images of these ancient adversaries. Michael felt drained since the inception of Adam. His powers worked but it took considerable to maintain what was once second nature. He was feeling uncomfortably and he was determined to restore himself to his former glory. He would slay this dragon, Mantrella, once and for all and place himself on The Throne.
Deep inside he knew that his gods had left him to fend for himself. It was his choice just as it was Mantrella’s to stay and complete this evolutionary round. These were the only two that had any real choice. They were the only two who had received complete free will. Most of the others were followers and the three of the four caught glimpses of freedom, but were easily swayed. Mantrella’s dominions were earning there freedom by working and learning through the ages the lessons that befell humanity. Those stayed with Michael were as the sheep following the herdsman, nothing more since they would not partake of the experience.
To a degree, Michael still held to the wishful thought that he was not alone. If he worked hard enough, perhaps his former masters would return and he would be glorified by his diligence. Until that time, he would continue to function in their name and ensure that the lamps would remain lit should they return. It was all delusion, but one that he refused to admit.
Mantrella felt that is time was nearing an end. He too felt a decline in his powers with respect to his abilities to affect the material world. Like Michael, his powers on the spiritual plane remained essentially in tact, but his ability to move freely and alter the material plane was diminished. Scant few would notice the reduction in ability but what was important was that he noticed. He felt that The Great Cycle was coming to an end and that he was not certain of his future path or if he even had one. If his plans came to fruition, Michael was not the only force that would become obsolete.
Over the millennia he had enjoyed his bouts with Michael. And, while his efforts on behalf of humanity were immensely frustrating to the point of near failure, he finally felt that this time, The Magnum Opus would be accomplished. Time, however, was not on his side. He knew what Michael was doing with the vaccinations but he held out hope that Michael’s efforts would fall short of the hundredth monkey.
“The god seed of Cain has been released from its bondage. The Pharaoh has let his people go and they have crossed the sea of blood and brought their seed to the New Land. They have endured much, lives filled with confusion, dashed hopes, false promises, lies and myths, despair and anguish,” Mantrella said. “Their hour approaches and there is nothing you can do to stop it.”
Michael burst into hysterical laughter. “You and your pitiful humanity,” Michael said. “Give them pain and suffering and they have always chosen the easy way out. They quickly turn on one another. ‘Crucify, crucify!’ they shout. Turn a blind eye, walk away, take him and not me is their motto. Give them a god with a little savvy and a lot of might and they follow it to the ends of their own insanity.”
“Because of the likes of you!” Mantrella yelled back. “You create demons and devils and false hopes of redemption. You build them mighty temples and give with one hand and slaughter with the other. You have kept them separate and ignorant and give just enough to raise false hopes. You destroy their prophets and burn their seers. If they question you put them to the rack and crush all semblance of free thought. You give them a doctrine of poverty and offer riches in your fantasy heaven. Kill in the name of god and your treasure shall be immeasurable. You divide them and thus conquer them and tell them they have no responsibility but to be good sheep and to follow your demented dictates. No more, Michael. Your time, my time is at an end here. There dreams shall become the new heaven and the new earth and they shall rise past both of us. Remember, it was you that bowed down!”
Mantrella knew that he should not have said that.
“Enough of your misplaced preaching! You may have over turned the tables in the temple once, but not this time. You are under obligation and in this matter you have no choice,” Michael said in triumph.
With those words spoken, the Second Seal, the Seal of the Moon, was torn asunder. The flow of the Sacred River reversed its flow. The Light on the Hill flickered and died. The Tower that had been crumbling was now being rebuilt. Michael was right, if one chose to open a Seal, the world of duality gave the other no choice. The world would now experience more war, and life in the sea would begin to die. The door opening on one side was a door closing on the other.
Mantrella hung his head in deep sadness. The growing feeling of helplessness was a foreign sensation that contradicted his deepest nature. He knew that the opening of the Seals was not as portrayed his Michael’s version of the revelation. But he also knew that humanity’s energy centers were now being blocked and without release, almost anything could happen.
“Oh, poor Mantrella,” Michael said in a mocking tone. “Our little truce is no more. Consider your little band of would be saviors fair game.”
“That will be your undoing,” Mantrella replied as a grin spread across his face. With that said, Mantrella’s image began to fade.
Not sure why Mantrella was smiling he shouted into the growing nothingness, “It is your doing, Mantrella. Their heads are on your shoulders.”
In response, all he heard was a dissipating laughter, like a train whistle that fades with its passing."

“I have waited for some time for the arrival of this book and it was well worth the wait. Philip Harris and Brian Doe have done what no other authors have. They have captured what perhaps just might be the behind the scenes of what goes on in our world each and every day and they bring it to light for the rest of us to see. This is not just a story but a learning experience. What an amazing read. Can't wait for the next one!” Katrina Stiles

The following is a review by Nina M. Osier.

Be sure you re-read WAKING GOD, or at least review it a bit,
before you begin WAKING GOD II: THE SACRED ROTA. Otherwise you
may have trouble following the action and keeping the characters
straight, and you don't want to do either. This tale moves along
smartly, and it features an even more varied and intriguing cast
than the first book in this planned trilogy.

Andrew, the young comparative religions professor from Book I,
knows what he needs to do. He needs to give the still sleeping
Adam flesh, by mating with a young and mysterious Middle Eastern
woman known as Mara. The time is right at last, so what can
possibly stop Andrew and Mara from coming together in
fulfillment of prophecy? Well, for one thing, there's Michael.
And then there are those who follow Michael, the great archangel
who's made it his mission to keep humanity in its current
ignorant and deluded state. Ranged on the looming battle's other
side are Mantrella, Bringer of Light, and those who follow him.
Meanwhile, Earth itself convulses as its inhabitants endure the
plagues of Revelation. Will those who can stop Michael act in
time? And even if they do, will they prevail?

Once again authors Doe and Harris draw together the whole range
of humankind's myths and spiritual beliefs, and use those
threads to weave a story no one else could have imagined. The
tale twists and turns, with new puzzles popping up even as those
from the first book resolve (at least in part), until WAKING GOD
II ends with a cliffhanger that may just make you want to
scream. Scream for the next and final installment, that is...!
