At one time there was no difference between science and religion.
Manly Palmer Hall (March 18, 1901 – August 29, 1990) was a Canadian-born author and mystic. He is perhaps most famous for his work The Secret Teachings of All Ages: An Encyclopedic Outline of Masonic, Hermetic, Qabbalistic and Rosicrucian Symbolical Philosophy, which is widely regarded as his magnum opus, and which he published. (Note: the video starts off a little rough - hang in there, you will learn alot and the sound gets better a few minutes into the recording)
He has been widely recognized as a leading scholar in the fields of religion, mythology, mysticism, and the occult.
In 1973 (47 years after writing The Secret Teachings of All Ages), Hall was recognized as a 33Âº Mason (the highest honor conferred by the Supreme Council of the Scottish Rite), at a ceremony held at PRS on December 8th, despite never being initiated into the physical craft.
In his over 70-year career, Hall delivered approximately 8,000 lectures in the United States and abroad, authored over 150 books and essays, and wrote countless magazine articles.
This is a beautiful historic talk - temples of the gods where the first astronomical observatories. A great listen - you will learn so much from ancient beginnings of religion and how it changed over so many of thousands of the years up until today.
