The more you begin to investigate,

what we think we understand, where we came from,

what we think we're doing,

the more you begin to see we've been lied to.

We've been lied to by every institution.

What makes you think for one minute

that the religious institution is the only

one that has never been touched.

The religious institutions of this world

are at the bottom of the dirt.

The religious institutions in this world are

put there by the same people who gave you

your government, your corrupt education,

who set up your international banking cartels.

Because our masters don't give a damn

about you or your family.

All they care about is what they have always cared about

and that's controlling the whole damn world.

We have been misled away from the true

and divine presence in the universe

that men have called 'God'.

I don't know what God is but I know what he isn't.

And unless and until you are prepared

to look at the whole truth

wherever it may go, whoever it may lead to,

if you want to look the other way,

or if you want to play favourites

then somewhere along the line you're gonna find out

you're messing with the divine justice.

The more you educate yourself, the more you understand

where things come from - the more obvious things become

and you begin to see lies everywhere.

You have to know the truth

and seek the truth

and the truth will set you free.

...'cause I gotta tell you the truth folks,

I gotta tell you the truth.

When it come to bullshit,

big-time-major-league bullshit,

you have to stand in awe of the all time champion

of false promises and exaggerated claims -


Think about it!

Religion has actually convinced people

that there's an invisible man, living in the sky

who watches everything you do,

every minute of every day.

And the invisible man has a special list

of ten things he does not want you to do.

And if you do any of these ten things,

he has a special place

full of fire and smoke

and burning and torture and anguish

where he will send you to live and suffer

and burn and choke and scream and cry

for ever and ever till the end of time.

But he loves you!

He loves you.

He loves you and he needs money.

He always needs money!

He's all powerful, all perfect,

all knowing and all wise.

Somehow - just can't handle money!

Religion takes in billions of dollars,

they pay no taxes, and they always need a little more.

Now, you talk about a good bullshit story!

Holy shit!

This is the Sun.

As far back as 10.000 BC

history is abundant with carvings and writings

reflecting people's respect and adoration for this object

And it is simple to understand why

as every morning the Sun would rise

bringing vision, warmth and security

saving man from the cold, blind,

predator filled darkness of night.

Without it, the cultures understood,

the crops would not grow,

the life on the planet would not survive.

These realities make the Sun

the most adored object of all time.

Likewise, they were also very aware of the stars.

The tracking of the stars allowed them to

recognize and anticipate events

which occurred of a long period's of time,

such as eclipses and full moons.

They in turn catalogued celestial groups

in what we know today as constellations.

This is the cross of the zodiac,

one of the oldest conceptual images in human history.

It reflects the Sun as it figuratively passes through

the 12 major constellations over the course of a year.

It also reflects the 12 months of the year,

the four seasons, and the solstices and equinoxes.

The term zodiac relates to the fact
