The Two Babylons
Originally a pamphlet published in 1853, The Two Babylons is Hislop’s most famous work. In this book he argues that the Roman Catholic Church is nothing more than pagan cult, with roots in Babylonian mystery cults, which have a bank of secret knowledge only available to those who have been formally accepted into the cult. Roman Catholics, Hislop argues, are descendants from early Christians who adopted the Roman religion descended from the worship of Semiramis, the wife of the founder of Babylon. By discrediting the true Christianity of Catholics, Hislop hoped to bolster the legitimacy of the Protestant and Scottish Reformations. Students of theology and those interested in the complex history of Christianity will find Hislop’s arguments provocative enough that they may be moved to further research of their own. Scottish minister ALEXANDER HISLOP (1807-1865) became an ordained clergymen in the Free Church of Scotland in 1844.
Babylon Mystery Religion
Babylon Mystery Religion is a detailed Biblical and historical account of how, when, why, and where ancient paganism was mixed with Christianity. From the early days of Babylon and the legends surrounding Nimrod, Semiramis, and Tammuz, certain rites and rituals are traced in their various developments, thus providing clues whereby the “mystery” is solved! The apostles had predicted there would come a “falling away” and the proof of their prediction is now evident in history. With such evidence in hand, all true believers should seek, as never before, the simplicity found in Christ himself and to earnestly contend for that original faith which was once delivered unto the saints.
The Dark Side of Christian History
Over a period of nearly two millennia, the Christian Church has oppressed and brutalized millions of individuals. Meticulously researched and courageously written, “The Dark Side of Christian History” by Helen Ellerbe examines the Church’s devastating impact upon human freedom, dignity and spirituality. Written for the lay reader, this controversial book is especially relevant today as the religious right is attempting to assert greater influence in American politics and society. “The Dark Side of Christian History presents a compelling argument that the Church’s desire to control and contain spiritually motivated its persecution of heretics, its burning of libraries, the Crusades, the Inquisition, and the witch-hunts. This dark Christianity ahs left a legacy, a world view, which permeates every aspect of Western society. It is a legacy which fosters sexism, racism, the intolerance of difference and the desecration of the natural environment. Helen Ellerbe is a researcher, writer, and public speaker living in the San Francisco bay area
From Babylon To Timbuktu
Until comparatively recent times, knowledge that black Africa was the seat of highly evolved civilizations and cultures during a time when Europe stagnated was limited to a small group of scholars. That great empires such as Ghana, and later, Mali flourished for centuries while Europe slept through its dark ages almost has been ignored by historians. Thousands of years before that, as Rudolph R. Windsor notes in this enlightening book, civilizations began with the black races of Africa and Asia, including the Hebrews, who in Biblical times were jet black.
From the Author: “This book is intended as a supplement to existing literature on African and black Hebrew history. To get a background knowledge of the history of the black races, the reader is urged to start at the beginning and continue to the end. The aim is to present material that will not only inform and interest the reader but will impart truth, self-confidence, and racial pride to the black man, and at the same time enlighten the general public concerning the contribution to civilization of the ancient black races.
Judea Trembles Under Rome : The Untold Details of the Greek and Roman Military Domination of Ancient Palestine During the Time of Jesus of Galilee
A provocative and historical blueprint of the times and conditions that gave rise to the Greek and Roman conquest of ancient Palestine. Rudolph Windsor gives detailed information of how the ancient black Judeans had to suffer under the Greek and Roman oppression.
Destruction of Black Civilization: Great Issues of a Race from 4500BC to 2000AD
This is a widely read classic exposition of the history of Africans on the continent, the people of African descent in the United States and in the diaspora. This is well researched scholarly work detailing the development of civilisation in Africa and its destruction.
Queen of Rome, Queen of Islam, Queen of All
The Marian Apparitions plan to unite all religions Under the Roman Catholic Church. Millions of Catholics travel to shrines to pray before her image. But what is not commonly known is that Muslims also hold her in high regard, and even among Hindus and Buddhists there is worship of goddesses that bear a striking resemblance to the Catholic Mary.
Living By The Point of My Spear
Zaki Ameen dedicated his life to Islam. He was raised as a Muslim and studied for a degree in Sharia law, in order to become a qualified Imam. Zaki earned his living from preaching and teaching the principles of Islam, working as an Imam in Egypt, Iraq, Yemen and many gulf states. In the course of his career as an Imam, he started to realise how the teaching of Muhammad and the Quran were used to deceive followers, in order to gain control, money and power.
It was with deep agony that he realised what a fool he had been and how he had been brainwashed by a system that had been refined over centuries and how he had, in turn, brainwashed others.Zaki left Islam and the Mosques and emigrated to the United States, to start a new career and a new life. He became a tax payer making a positive contribution to society.
He now saw that being an Imam was like being a parasite, spreading lies and encouraging others to spread the lies of Muhammad. What happened on 9/11 shocked him to his core and it was shortly after that that he realised he could not simply stop following Muhammad, but he had to do more. He became obsessed and haunted by an irresistible urge to let the world know what he had discovered about Muhammad and Islam. Thus began the journey to write a true biography of Muhammad and the true story of Islam – a long and dangerous journey to write, translate and publish the book that became Living by the Point of My Spear.
The Vatican Billions : Two Thousand Years of Wealth Accumulation from Caesar to the Space Age
“Jesus, the founder of Christianity, was the poorest of the poor. Roman Catholicism, which claims to be His church, is the richest of the rich, the wealthiest institution on earth. How come, that such an institution, ruling in the name of this same itinerant preacher, whose want was such that he had not even a pillow upon which to rest his head, is now so top-heavy with riches that she can rival – indeed, that she can put to shame – the combined might of the most redoubtable financial trusts, of the most potent industrial super-giants, and of the most prosperous global corporation of the world?”
The Vatican in World Politics
The importance of this book cannot be exaggerated. Properly understood, it offers both a clue and a key to the painfully confused political situation that shrouds the world. No political event or circumstance can be evaluated without the knowledge of the Vatican’s part in it. And no significant world political situation exists in which the Vatican does not play an important explicit or implicit part.
As Glenn L. Archer, Executive Director of Protestants and Other Americans United for Separation of Church and State, puts it, “this book comes to grips with the most vital social and political problems of our day. The author presents with singular clarity and without bias the conflicts between the Roman church and the freedoms of democracy.”
This book is valuable also in that it brings to light historical facts hitherto kept secret, many of them published here for the first time. The author coped with great difficulties when he attempted to compress into the confines of a single volume the great mass of material available. For that reason he had to leave out many valuable discussions. And some were omitted because the cases dealt with remained still unresolved.
That is the reason why no mention is to be found of the case of Archbishop Stepinac of Yugoslavia, and there is only a brief mention of the case of Cardinal Mindszenty of Hungary—cases which at the time this book was published were on the schedule of the United Nations for investigation. But sufficient evidence is presented in other cases to enable the reader to evaluate current events and similar situations.
The Vatican Empire
The extent of papal wealth has traditionally been cloaked in secrecy. Even within the Vatican’s own walls there is no individual who has an overall view of its infinitely ramified financial operations. In The Vatican Empire, Nino Lo Bello, a former Rome correspondent for Business Week, presents the first comprehensive and authoritative report on the Vatican as a nerve center of high finance. The picture that emerges is one of awesome fiscal power.
Mr. Lo Bello describes in fascinating detail Vatican investments in real estate – one third of Rome is owned by the Holy See – electronics, plastics, airlines, and chemical and engineering firms. He also gives evidence that the Vatican is heavily involved in Italian banking and that it has huge deposits in foreign banks. Many of these are in Switzerland, since the Vatican financiers prefer numbered Swiss accounts where annonymity is maintained and where they can gain control of foreign corporations far from the public eye.
In addition, Mr. Lo Bello shows that the Vatican is one of the world’s largest shareholders, with a stock portfolio that can be conservatively estimated in the billions of dollars. — Back Cover
Rulers of Evil
Rather than pass through the Atlanta Federal Prison Camp gate to serve a sentence for a tax misdemeanor back in 1987, author F. Tupper Saussy chose to become a fugitive in order to freely investigate his adversary — the United States of America. What he discovered was valuable new proof of a vast Roman Catholic sub-stratum of American history — more specifically, that Jesuits played eminent and underappreciated roles in persuading New Englanders to rebel against their mother country in 1776.
Indeed, according to Saussy’s groundbreaking discoveries, the American Revolution and its resulting constitutional republic may have been single-handedly designed and supervised by a Jesuit named Lorenzo Ricci — this country’s true founding father. Provocative and utterly compelling, Rulers of Evil analyzes the hundreds of historical clues left by the true leaders of the world. It should be read by anyone desiring to know, definitively, why America works the way it does.
The Vatican Assassins
Eric Phelps is the author of the book Vatican Assassins. It’s a detailed and exhaustive account of the role of the Vatican, the Papacy and in particular the Jesuit Order, in world affairs. In essence, Phelps points the finger at Rome as being the apex of the ‘New World Order’ pyramid and the driving force behind it. The evidence he provides is largely very good although some of his assertions appear to be based on little evidence. It seems clear that the Vatican is, at the very least, an important player in the ‘New World Order’ if not the controlling force. The point of this post isn’t to review his book, or the evidence he provides within it, but to to investigate its publishers and their connections to a new age magazine called ‘Spectrum’.
Confessions of an Economic Hit-man
John Perkins started and stopped writing Confessions of an Economic Hit Man four times over 20 years. He says he was threatened and bribed in an effort to kill the project, but after 9/11 he finally decided to go through with this expose of his former professional life. Perkins, a former chief economist at Boston strategic-consulting firm Chas. T. Main, says he was an “economic hit man” for 10 years, helping U.S. intelligence agencies and multinationals cajole and blackmail foreign leaders into serving U.S. foreign policy and awarding lucrative contracts to American business. “Economic hit men (EHMs) are highly paid professionals who cheat countries around the globe out of trillions of dollars,” Perkins writes. Confessions of an Economic Hit Man is an extraordinary and gripping tale of intrigue and dark machinations. Think John Le Carré, except it’s a true story.
Perkins writes that his economic projections cooked the books Enron-style to convince foreign governments to accept billions of dollars of loans from the World Bank and other institutions to build dams, airports, electric grids, and other infrastructure he knew they couldn’t afford. The loans were given on condition that construction and engineering contracts went to U.S. companies. Often, the money would simply be transferred from one bank account in Washington, D.C., to another one in New York or San Francisco.
The deals were smoothed over with bribes for foreign officials, but it was the taxpayers in the foreign countries who had to pay back the loans. When their governments couldn’t do so, as was often the case, the U.S. or its henchmen at the World Bank or International Monetary Fund would step in and essentially place the country in trusteeship, dictating everything from its spending budget to security agreements and even its United Nations votes. It was, Perkins writes, a clever way for the U.S. to expand its “empire” at the expense of Third World citizens. While at times he seems a little overly focused on conspiracies, perhaps that’s not surprising considering the life he’s led. –Alex Roslin
The Capitalist Conspiracy
It’s a sobering fact that the hidden power structure of international finance has exerted tremendous influence over public opinion in this country through its’ virtual control of higher education and major segments of mass communication. Conspiracy. One of the darkest words in the language of man. Yet there is hardly a single page of history that does not partially reveal the deadly eye of conspiracy at work. It was a conspiracy that directed Brutus against Caesar in the Roman Senate on the Ides of March. It was a conspiracy that plotted the betrayal of West Point by Benedict Arnold during the American Revolution. It was a conspiracy that led John Wilkes Booth to the assassination of President Lincoln on Good Friday, 1865.
The past record of man is burdened with accounts of assassinations, secret combines, palace plots, and betrayals in war. The tenet of conspiracy has been a dominant force in all history. But in spite of this clear record, an amazing number of people have begun to scoff at the possibility of conspiracy at work today. They dismiss such an idea merely as “a conspiratorial view of history.” The purpose of this presentation is to show that the conspiratorial view of history -particularly of recent history- is the correct view; that there is a secret and powerful combine at work today: that it constitutes the unseen government of the United States; and that it properly can be identified as The Capitalist Conspiracy.
Capitalism & Slavery
Slavery helped finance the Industrial Revolution in England. Plantation owners, shipbuilders, and merchants connected with the slave trade accumulated vast fortunes that established banks and heavy industry in Europe and expanded the reach of capitalism worldwide. Eric Williams advanced these powerful ideas in Capitalism and Slavery, published in 1944. Years ahead of its time, his profound critique became the foundation for studies of imperialism and economic development. Binding an economic view of history with strong moral argument, Williams’s study of the role of slavery in financing the Industrial Revolution refuted traditional ideas of economic and moral progress and firmly established the centrality of the African slave trade in European economic development. He also showed that mature industrial capitalism in turn helped destroy the slave system. Establishing the exploitation of commercial capitalism and its link to racial attitudes, Williams employed a historicist vision that set the tone for future studies.
The Outline of History : The Whole Story of Man
The Outline of History, subtitled either “The Whole Story of Man” or “Being a Plain History of Life and Mankind”, is a work by H.G. Wells that first appeared in an illustrated version of 24 fortnightly instalments beginning on 22 November 1919 and was published as a single volume in 1920. It sold more than two million copies, was translated into many languages, and had a considerable impact on the teaching of history in institutions of higher education. Wells modeled the Outline on the Encyclopedia of Denis Diderot.
Tragedy and Hope
“The powers of financial capitalism had [a] far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert by secret agreements arrived at in frequent private meetings and conferences.”
— Quote from Caroll Quigley’s Tragedy and Hope, Chapter 20
Caroll Quigley was a professor of history at Georgetown University from 1941 to 1976. He also taught at Princeton and at Harvard, and lectured at the Brookings Institution. He was a frequent lecturer at the U.S. Naval Weapons Laboratory, the Foreign Service Institute, and the Naval College at Norfolk, Virginia. In 1958, he served as a consultant to the Congressional Select Committee which set up the National Space Agency.
The Histories of Herodotus (Volume 1)
The Histories (also known as The History) of Herodotus is now considered as the founding work of history in Western Literature. Written from the 450s to the 420s BC in the Ionic dialect of classical Greek, The Histories serves as a record of the ancient traditions, politics, geography, and clashes of various cultures that were known around the Mediterranean and Western Asia at that time. It is not an impartial record but it remains one of the West’s most important sources regarding these affairs. Moreover, it established without precedent the genre and study of history in the Western world, although historical records and chronicles existed beforehand.
The Antiquities of the Jews
The Jewish Antiquities, his largest historical enterprise, is an account in twenty books of Jewish history from the creation to the outbreak of the Jewish revolt against Rome in AD 66. Here is all the drama of the Old Testament transformed into a historical narrative of Greco-Roman character; and more important, our only continuous account of Middle Eastern affairs in the two hundred years that led up to the revolt. The works of the Jewish writer Flavius Josephus represent one of the most important records of Judaism and the Jews that survive from the ancient world.

A People’s History of the United States
“Known for its lively, clear prose as well as its scholarly research, A People’s History of the United States is the only volume to tell America’s story from the point of view of — and in the words of — America’s women, factory workers, African-Americans, Native Americans, working poor, and immigrant laborers.” – Back Cover
Howard Zinn (1922-2010) was a historian, playwright, and social activist. His many books include A People’s History of the United States, which has sold more than two million copies.
Occult Holidays or God’s Holy Days – Which?
While mainstream Christian leaders are very well aware of the pagan origins of these holidays, the average churchgoer is oblivious to the truth of how today’s widely accepted holidays have become central to Christian practice. Still fewer realize that the biblical festivals God gave to ancient Israel—observed by Christ and the early Church—were over the centuries proclaimed to be obsolete by prejudiced Christian authorities. How did what God absolutely condemns in His Word come to be fully embraced as a fundamental doctrine of this world’s Christianity?
Fred Coulter’s Occult Holidays or God’s Holy Days—Which? lays bare the naked truth with authority, fully explaining when and how these holidays originated. In this seminal book, Coulter thoroughly documents how subtle forces from the world of paganism systematically replaced the seventh-day Sabbath and annual festivals of God with counterfeit holidays born of the occult—and how such occult holidays became “Christianized” over time by so-called “early church fathers” as they disparaged and rejected the Sabbath and holy days of the Bible. Coulter goes on to give a complete overview from the Scriptures of the true meaning and purpose of God’s Sabbath and holy days. Why haven’t you been told about those days?
The Satanic Bible
The Satanic Bible is a collection of essays, observations, and rituals published by Anton Lavey in 1969. It contains the core principles of the religion of Laveyan Satanism, and is considered the foundation of its philosophy and dogma. It has been described as the most important document to influence contemporary Satanism. Though The Satanic Bible is not considered to be sacred scripture in the way the Christian Bible is to Christianity, LaVeyan Satanists regard it as an authoritative text as it is a contemporary text that has attained for them scriptural status.
