The Corpus Gnostica: A New Gnostic Gospel

  Teaser for 'The Corpus Gnostica (a new Gnostic Gospel) 05/25/2013'


"Topics Discussed:

--The process of how Brent came to "discover" this mystic text (while living in the Deep South, no less).
--Understanding the Power of Myth and many of its universal symbols: the hare, the sacred marriage, the divine twin, the Trickster, and more.
--What modern Gnosticism has gotten right from the ancient Gnostics (and what it has gotten wrong).
--Alternative views on Atlantis, the Illuminati, the Freemasons, and other esoteric lightning rods.
--Understanding why and how Orthodoxy suppressed alternative Christianities.
--The universal themes found in the many narratives given by the ancient Gnostic Christians.

And much more!!
Our rebroadcast is The Fall & Rise of the Goddess. For thousands of  years, the Patriarchal Gods and their minions have ruled most civilizations, either with an iron first or a subconscious lullaby. It has given the world ages of constant warfare, suppression of minorities and iron-fist dogmas. Yet the Information Age has not only given rise to humanism, it has also renewed the reverence for the seemingly-lost Divine Female Principle through the blossoming interest in Neo-Paganism, Kabbalah, Marian Catholicism, Gnosticism and other esoteric traditions. We explore how the once-balanced Divine lost half of its aspect and how it can fully regain it despite a time when the old Patriarchal systems fight even harder to keep their solar dominance. Our guest was Barbara Walker, author of
 Man Made God
The Woman's Encyclopedia of Myths and Secrets 
and  Restoring the Goddess.

Next week we discuss Bart Ehrman and how he has recently dropped the ball on the historical Jesus Christ (and all other mainstream scholars as well). Frank Zindler, scholar and editor of Atheist Press, joins us to understand this and the mysthicist position.

"Myths are public dreams; dreams are private myths. By finding your own dream and following it through, it will lead you to the myth-world in which you live. But just as in dream, the subject and object, though they seem to be separate, are really the same."
~ Joseph Campbell

Please support Aeon Byte Gnostic Radio. I’ve had to cut back to about two shows a month these last six months; I hope to keep it at that level or get back to four in the near future. I am also looking for extra work as a writer, blogger, journalist, copywriter, or really anything. If anyone has any leads or advice, please let me know. Lastly, any leads on how to get on The Huffington Post would be forever appreciated…and even compensated with a Pandora’s Box of free shows." ~ M.C.
