Sun Wheels

Solar wheels, which are often eight-spoked, or two wheels superimposed upon each other, are common in pagan religions as well as in Catholicism. It is clear that Catholicism is a conglomerate of pagan rituals, traditions, and symbols. Many of the images in this album are featured in Amazing Discoveries' Total Onslaught: The Wine of Babylon lecture. Purchase The Wine of Babylon DVD or view the lecture online.
