Pagan Hand Signs

Hand signs are important in occult secret societies and pagan religions. When we compare the signs in Catholicism with Buddhism and early paganism, we see that nothing has changed. In his work Leviathan, Thomas Hobbes wrote, "The Papacy is not other than the Ghost of the deceased Roman Empire, sitting crowned upon the grave thereof." Before papal Rome, Pagan Rome ruled the world, and had taken many religious rites of Greece, Persia, and Babylon. Many of these images are featured in Amazing Discoveries' Total Onslaught: The Wine of Babylon lecture. Purchase the DVD or view the lecture online.
