WOW!   I know there is a lot here to digest.  BUT, My GOODNESS this is a very enlightening bunch of information.  THIS is what the entire thing has been leading up to, the RETURN of DAGON!   If you watch symbols like I do, than you have been seeing a lot of them, and they will nearly all make sense once you read this article.

We have seen the promotion of mermaids to our children. They have been bombarded with it everyday, everywhere and they are entranced.  They can’t get enough.  They are buying tails and fantasizing becoming mermaids.

We have seen the same thing with young adults and grown women.  Some have actually come to believe that they ARE mermaids.  God help them.

NOW, we see the men.  I use that term loosely, because in my mind today we have no men… they have been feminized beyond recognition.  But, you can judge that for yourself.  That is my opinion and I am entitled to it.

Let’s take a look at what is happening today and how MERFOLK figure into these endtime developments.   Put your thinking caps on…those of you who still have your analytical and critical thinking intact.  Open you spiritual eyes and pay attention.

Fish Brand Finds Some New Ocean Pitchmen

Ads for seafood often fall back on ocean-themed cliches — grizzled fishermen, sea shanties and lapping waves. But a quirky new campaign by Gorton’s seafood digs deeper to find some more humorous ocean pitchmen to sing the brand’s praises — including a buff Poseidon, some muscular “mer-bros” and a castaway.

The spots inject some offbeat humor into messages about the health benefits of Gorton’s products: for example the “mer-bros” lift shell weights and eat their protein, in the form of Gorton’s fish sandwich, while explaining “You know Mer-Bros aren’t born with this physique…we still have to eat right.”

The ads, by Connelly & Partners, were shot on White Point Beach in San Pedro, California, and directed by Hungry Man’s Conor Byrne.

Chris Hussey, vice president of marketing at Gorton’s, says in a statement: “What we liked about this year’s campaign was how Connelly Partners represented our brand heritage–the food, color, Fisherman, and of course, the jingle–while adding a fresh, modern and fun feel.”

Gorton’s isn’t the only fish brand trying to update its image — over in the U.K., frozen fish product Birds Eye fishfingers recently updated its long running campaign featuring a bearded “Captain Birdseye” with a younger version, played by a good-looking Italian actor.

Mer-Bros and Poseidon Among the Aquatic Authorities Featured in Gorton’s New Spots

GLOUCESTER, Massachusetts, (January 26, 2018) – Gorton’s Seafood has launched its latest broadcast campaign, “Trusted by Those Who Know”, created by agency-of-record, Connelly Partners. In the spots, authorities of the ocean reveal that even they, storied characters of the sea, trust Gorton’s. Mer-bros, a castaway and even Poseidon agree: they all turn to their trusted source, the Gorton’s Fisherman, for quality seafood.

The campaign, which was shot on White Point Beach in San Pedro, California, and directed by Hungry Man’s Conor Byrne, is as visually stimulating as it is quirky and ironic. Legacy Effects, the force behind the costumes in Marvel’s movie franchise, created the costumes for characters of the sea – who were complimented by the same slicker-clad Fisherman introduced in last year’s campaign.

In Castaway, a long haired bearded castaway (with a coconut as a friend) sits down to dinner by a campfire, “After 20 years as a castaway, you’d think I’d be sick of fish, but I still love Gorton’s wild caught whole fillets that I don’t have to catch with my bare hands.” At the end of each spot, there is an overt nod to the Gorton’s Fisherman; in this one, the Fisherman is rescuing our Castaway.

“The Trusted by Those Who Know campaign was created to demonstrate that Gorton’s Seafood is a proven and delicious option for a quick meal solution that includes real, quality and sustainably sourced seafood,” said Chris Hussey, vice president of marketing at Gorton’s. “What we liked about this year’s campaign was how Connelly Partners represented our brand heritage – the food, color, Fisherman, and of course, the jingle – while adding a fresh, modern and fun feel. For 169 years, our company has sought innovative ways to bring our fans the very best quality seafood, and we feel this spot conveys that in an entertaining way.”

Now it may not seem like this next piece is relevant… Oh but it is.   This things don’t just happen.  This guy is creating GIGANTIC Displays in Museums and Civic Centers.  If you can’t tell by the title of his article “Ray Troll Defends the Practice of Fish Worship”  OPEN YOUR EYES!

Ray Troll Defends the Practice of Fish Worship Part II
By Sharon Lint

March 01, 2005, Monday    Photo Credit: Free Encyclopedia


AK – Speaking at the Alaska DCenter Friday evening, Ray Troll said being around native culture has also influenced some of his art. He befriended Israel Shotridge, which ultimately led to Ray’s poster showcasing the Chief Johnson Totem Pole. In the poster, he included all the characters that were on the pole and tried to duplicate its story within his work.

“The idea occurred to him to have me do a poster which would be given out at the pot latch when the pole went up,” Ray explained. “I met with his family and I began to understand the ownership of stories, and the whole story about the creation of salmon. . . this is a real privilege to [have been] able to do this . . .”

Around that same time, he became fascinated with the history of Southeast Alaska. He found a special interest in the arrival of the Russian people to this area and the story of how cultures collided in 1802 and 1804. To portray the battle of Tlingit warriors who attacked the Russian-Aleut settlement of St. Michael’s, he created “The Battle of Old Sitka.”

“When the Russians first tried to settle in Sitka, Alaska, there were several . . . out-and-out battles . . .” he said and then as he pointed to several objects in the piece, he divulged, “these are all war helmets.

“Martin Oliver is right back there, he’s kinda lookin’ over this guy’s shoulder . . .the guy in the white shirt – [portrays the] number of American sailors from Boston that were marooned in Sitka and . . . joined the Tlingits when they attacked.” His next comment drew laughs from the audience as he told them, “I’m the dead Russian guy over in the corner.”

Moving on from huge battles to huge exhibits, he started working on “Planet Ocean.” It began as a book and then into a display that encompassed approximately 3,000 square feet. A half-million people saw the show and by the time it made it out to the Denver Museum it had grown to 14,000 square feet. As an example of the enormity of the project, he related, “that’s about the size of the civic center.”

The exhibit included a fish that Ray had come across during his research. Although even ichthyologists are skeptical when they first encounter drawings of the Sabertooth Salmon, it turns out that this fish really did live in our seas and is an ancient ancestor of the Sockeye. It could grow to an average of 8-9 feet and had big fangs. He incorporated the wonderful beast attacking a Sabertooth Tiger in a display called, “The Battle of the Giant Sabertooths.”

Of course, being part artist and part paleontologist, Ray tried to make his drawings look as realistic as possible. He worked from the Sabertooth Salmons’ six foot-long holotype [the first fossil ever found] housed at the University of Oregon in Eugene. “Imagine the fillets!” he enthused.

It also included murals, an interactive computer, tanks, a dance floor and an original soundtrack with scientists rapping about sea life. Better yet, it showcased the Evolvo; a Volvo that had been painted, tricked-out, infested with trilobites and ammonites and piled high with dinosaur bones. It even had Charles Darwin as the driver. “I’d been wanting to do this for many years and I’d proposed it to many different museums. . .” he said.

His work with the exhibit brought his attention to what he refers to as “under-appreciated fish,” such as primitive sharks that resembled ratfish and were, in fact, related. These bizarre monsters had lived some three hundred million years ago and most had never been drawn before. He ended up on a Discovery Channel show after taking several trips and making several drawings of them and others.

One shark that totally infatuated him was the Helicoprion. It retained all its teeth in a whorl-tooth circular-saw-like mouth. This led to his book “Sharkabet,” which in turn, was transformed into an exhibit, much the same way “Planet Ocean” had been born. He painted goblin sharks, dogfish, and nurse sharks for the project. Many of the models for his work were taken from fossils found in Montana.

His most recent obsession is with the fish of the Amazon. His original trip to the waters there was in 1997. He has been there three times now and his latest trip ended only twenty days or so ago. The seas in and around Alaska include approximately six hundred species of fish, but the Amazon has over 3,000 recognized varieties and that number is still growing. Some estimates go as high as 5,000.

Some are harmless, others deadly. One of the most famous species living in the Amazon River, the Piranha, has retained a bad reputation over the years. Stories have been told of the little beasts devouring a man in seconds, but the truth is that there has never been a documented case of a death caused by this sharp-toothed creature.

“Black piranha are. . . as common down there as humpies are here in the summer,” Ray informed the audience, adding, “We have this perception that they. . . will skeletonize you if you jump in the water but it’s really not so, although they do take a nip out of you every now and then. . .”

Inspired by the magnificent array of fish as well as by stories like these, he began working on a 7 X 15 foot mural of Amazonian fishes on his return. The finished mural is entitled “Freshwater Riches of the Amazon.” It was featured in a story written by John Lundberg that was published in the September 2001 issue of Natural History Magazine.

While working on the mural, Ray approached the Miami Museum with his vision of expanding this artwork into another exhibition. They took the bait. The Exhibit is now in the works and in theory it will open this October in Miami and then will travel around the United States.

Ray also spoke of a species of giant catfish that grow to be about seven feet. “. . . stories are told down there of catfish even bigger that swallow humans whole . . ,” he said. He also told the audience of another story told to him while he was visiting the region.

After enjoying a couple of Caipirinihas (pronounced as kai-pee-reen-yahs), his charter-boat captain began a tale about “The Seven Plagues of the Amazon River.” The story chronicles the fact that although mankind enjoys thousands of fish in the Amazon, there are seven that enjoy us.

One of the seven identified is the candirú. The candirú is a tiny catfish that feeds on blood by attaching itself to the gills of other fish. In the coming Miami exhibit, Ray plans to tell the story and have specimens of the catfish to make the “terror of the Amazon” more realistic.

“There’s a terrible mistake that they make every now and then. A horrible mistake that people find fascinating . . .” Ray began. “If you’re in the river and you really have to go and the little catfish mistakes you for a giant catfish, it will follow the warm flow and it will go right in [a urethra], male or female.”

Ray concluded his talk by telling of yet another project he has been working on for a good portion of a year. It is a map of the United States showing all known fossil sites. He has been working on this with Dr. Kirk Johnson from the Denver Museum. They hope to be finished in the fall of 2006.

As Ray stepped away from the microphone to speak to some fans and sign autographs, it seemed the answer to the question of the day, “Fish Worship; Is It Wrong?” was clear.

From the wholehearted applause from the audience, no one there seemed to think it was.

Fish story: Museum’s sabertooth salmon gets its teeth fixed

Sculptor Gary Staab

The Museum of Natural and Cultural History’s iconic sabertooth salmon sculpture recently underwent a major dental procedure.

Earlier this month artist Gary Staab, the creator of the six-foot-long replica, spent a day modifying it in response to changing scientific insights. And that required a little cosmetic dentistry to get its fearsome fangs pointing the right direction.

The giant fish species, a relative of modern sockeye salmon, swam in Oregon waters until around 4 million years ago and was long thought to have had pronounced, canine-like teeth that pointed downward from its upper jaw. That understanding was based on a fossil skull uncovered in 1964 at a quarry near Madras.

The same fossil functioned as a model for Staab as he created a life-size replica for display in the museum’s Explore Oregon exhibit, which opened to the public in 2014. But that same year, museum paleontologist Edward Davis recovered two additional specimens from the Madras quarry — specimens that shed surprising new light on the animal’s teeth.

“These new fossils turned our understanding sideways — literally,” Davis said. “They are the first to be found with the saber teeth intact in the skulls, and in both of them, the teeth are actually pointing sideways out of the jaw.”

Davis said the fossils, which were painstakingly freed from the surrounding rock material by museum volunteer Pat Ward, indicate that the sideways positioning isn’t an anomaly.

“This isn’t one unusual individual,” he said,  “We have two skulls presenting the same pattern.”

The pattern also appears on a specimen that recently surfaced on eBay after decades in private possession. Collected from the Madras quarry during the 1980s, the specimen includes a complete skull as well as multiple vertebrae.

Earlier this year, Oregon fossil collector Gregory Carr led an effort by the North America Research Group, a society of amateur paleontology enthusiasts, to purchase the specimen. The group has donated the assemblage to the Museum of Natural and Cultural History; it will be housed at the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry until the UO museum can prepare a space for it.

In Eugene to install and unveil the museum’s new, life-size Columbian mammoth sculptures, Staab devoted part of his visit to the tooth adjustment. With the help of the museum’s exhibitions team, he carefully dismounted the giant salmon and transported it to a studio space on campus. There he sawed off the so-called saber teeth and reattached them in the sideways position.

“The procedure went swimmingly, and the updated sculpture is now back on public view,” said Lyle Murphy, exhibitions developer at the museum.

Staab is known for blending science and art to bring extinct species back to life. His works have appeared at museums around the country, including the Smithsonian Institution, Houston Museum of Natural Sciences, Denver Museum of Nature and Science, and the Indianapolis Children’s Museum.

This wasn’t the first time Staab has modified one of his works to align with new evidence.

“The picture can change as a result of ongoing research. That’s the nature of science,” he said.  “Paleoartists can’t be afraid of being wrong.”

From Dagon to The Dragon The “Spirit” behind Christianity (ROMAN CATHOLICISM)
by Rav Sha’ul

Excerpt from: Christianity and the Great Deception
Rav Sha’ul

Christianity and the Great Deception (The Original Revelation Series Book 3) by [Sha'ul, Rav]From Dagon to The Dragon

The word “dragon” comes from the word “Dagon” one of, if not the, oldest pagan gods dating back to Nimrod.  Dagon evolved over time and cultures into the dragon:

Dagon is where the word dragon came from. When a nation conquered another nation, they would take their gods and incorporate them into their belief system. Simeramus (queen of Babylon) became Isis, who became Ishtar/Easter, who became Venus, who became Aphrodite, and finally Mary. In the same way Nimrod (King of Babylon) became Dagon became the sea serpent, then the dragon, then Neptune, then Posiedon, and then Zeus, and finally Satan. (The spirit in these Gods was really always Satan)The reason Neptune carried the trident, is the same reason you see Satan with the pitch fork. The trident was the article from the Jewish Tabernacle for turning the sacrifice.

The Taneem (great sea monster Genesis 1:21) was created on the 5th day when God created the fishes and the birds.

The association to the goat is also in scripture as well as in satanic worship. The goat fish Capricorn was also a direct association to Satan as well as the Hydra, the Septa (the sea Monster), and the serpent.

As I demonstrated in the second book in this series “The Mystery Religion of Babylon” Nimrod was the first false messiah ruling over the first attempt at a world government. Beginning with Nimrod in Babylon mankind began to worship leviathan (sea serpent) they called Dagon later known as The Dragon:

·       Job.41:1 Canst thou draw out leviathan with an hook? or his tongue with a cord which thou lettest down?

·       Job.41:5 In that day the Lord with his sore and great and strong sword shall punish leviathan the piercing serpent, even leviathan that crooked serpent; and he shall slay the dragon (or Taneem in Hebrew) that is in the sea.

·       Job.41:7 Canst thou fill his skin with barbed irons? or his head with fish spears?

This Dragon in the Sea or DAGON the Fish God called leviathan in scripture was worshipped by those in ancient Babylon and associated with Nimrod the first High Priest of Dagon.  Worship of Dagon was passed down after YHVH confused the languages and scattered humanity across the globe.  It was this religion that was prevalent and continued at the time Rome destroyed Jerusalem.  It was this religion of Dagon that permeated the high priestly ranks of paganism and was the foundation of The Christian Church (Remember this is written by a Jew,  The Catholic Church is not the Christian Church of Jesus Christ)which even today continues to wear the priestly garments of Dagon:

The etymology of the name “Satan” is directly connected to Leviathan. Sa-TAN and Levia-TAN both are derived from the word Taneem (sea creature) which is plural.  The singular of Taneem is TAN.  Sa-TAN and Levia-TAN are simply later versions of the Taneem god Dagon later known as The Dragon.

It is Dagon the Dragon that is the spiritual source behind the Christian Churches which are based in Rome (any Sunday/Christmas/Easter/Trinity/Jesus church).  (Again, Jesus started HIS Body/Church and it is made up of those true followers of Christ/The Word, Not the same thing as the Catholic Church which is really the Roman Religion Perpetuated under the name of the Holy Roman Catholic Church under the Pope/Sol Invictus)The Pope and priesthood of the Catholic Church is the high priest and priests of Dagon the Dragon in disguise (not a very good disguise actually):

The Priests of Dagon even to this day wear the “fish hat” and dictate Christian theology world-wide including Protestant Theology from the City of Rome. (True followers of Jesus Christ are not dictated to by the Pope of Rome or any of his servants.  They follow Christ)  Every fundamental doctrine of the Christian Church such as Sunday worship, Christmas, Easter, The Trinity, abolishment of The Law, pagan holidays, etc. were all Papal Edicts not found in scripture. (That is very TRUE) They violate clear explicit commands in scripture.  Rome is actually called “Babylon” in The Bible because it embodied the same Mystery Religion of Babylon.  (This is also very true.  And We ARE ROME, the US and most of the western world is still the Roman Empire, it never died. All of our culture is from ROME.)

1 Peter 5

The church that is at Babylon (speaking of the church in Rome), elected together with you, saluteth you; and so doth Marcus my son

Once we fully understand what “Christianity” actually is, what it is based on, and where it came from, then we can begin to understand why Christianity abolished the Law of YHVH, abolished His Sabbath Day, and changed the sacrifice of the Passover Lamb to the Easter Pig.  Every one of the above moves (not commanded by YHVH) were made by the Pope of Rome… The High Priest of Dagon… The Dragon.


The Mitre Hat

The priests of Dagon were known by their “Mitre Hat” which resembled an open mouth of a fish.  The same exact hat wore even today by The Pope as well as Cardinals and Bishops.  All “priests of Dagon” and the religion that surrounds them, even to this day, is identical to that born in Babylon.

As the pagan religion of Babylon was forced upon humanity by the Roman Emperor Constantine, the pagan aspects of worshiping Dagon, the fish god, was toned down as to not offend other religions as each pagan religion was literally assimilated into The Universal Church of Rome through the process of syncretism.  Syncretism is the blending of pagan religion with the worship of YHVH.  It is an abomination to YHVH.

Not only are the ancient Priests of Dagon (Fish Worship) found wearing the mitre hat, but also the Pope and Bishops of Rome are frequently found wearing this Mitre Hat.  This “clergy” system forms a pagan priest class NOT defined in The Word of YHVH but rather clearly defined in Ancient Babylon.  And it is from this false class of “priests” we get every doctrine of the Christian Church.

We see the Priest of Dagon on the ancient wall drawing in every culture even as far back as the Sumerians when The Pope then served the Nephilim rulers:

The High Priest of The Dragon – The Pope of Rome

DAGON or OANNES – “He would go back into the sea to spend the night, because he was amphibious. He had the head of a man; covered by the head of a fish, and had the legs and feet of a man and the torso of a man, but was covered by the scales and tail of a fish. ”  Berossus; from ancient fragments (Isaac Preston Cory)

Christianity (or shall I say Satan behind it) has done a very masterful job at concealing its true identity.  However, that mask is coming off as knowledge increases at exponential rates (mainly due to the internet).  We are no longer bound by the mental chains of the Christian Church who has made it a top priority to keep the masses in total ignorance.  We can now actually research its origins and test the historical accuracy of its claims.  Many over the centuries have questioned its rituals and practices simply because they cannot be found in the Bible.  But now, we can fully unmask this false religion and expose it for what it is… paganism dating back to Babylon.

“The great apostate church of the Gospel Age,  true to its Babylonish origin, has actually adopted this fish god in its ritual; for the pope on certain occasions manifests by his head gear that he is the direct representative of Dagon. As it was an indispensable rule in all idolatrous religions that the high priest should wear the insignia of the god that he worshipped, so the sculptures discovered by
Layard show that the priests of Dagon were arrayed in clothing resembling fish. This is probably the “strange apparel” referred to in Zeph. 1:8. Berosus tells us that in the image of Dagon the head of the man appeared under the head of the fish, while Layard points out that in the case of the priests “the head of the fish formed a mitre above that of the man, while its scaly, fan-like tail fell as a cloak behind, leaving the human limbs and feet exposed.”    (Babylon and Nineveh, p. 343)

The Dagon priests in Babylon wore hats that represented the open mouth of the fish, as if it were placed upon their heads – and the fish’s body was seen extending from that head and mouth, down the priest’s back to form a “robe”.  These exact priestly garments adorn the ranks of the Christian Clergy.

“The two-horned mitre, which the Pope wears, when he sits on the high altar at Rome and receives the adoration of the Cardinals, is the very mitre worn by the priests of Dagon, the fish-god of the Philistines and Babylonians.”

–        The Two Babylons ; Alexander Hislop; p. 215

Not only does the Pope wear this “Mitre” hat, but so do the Cardinals on certain occasions when they are dressed in their royal regalia… a far cry from the suffering servant Yahusha the Messiah and what he taught.  These “priests” of Dagon today known as The Pope, Cardinals, and Bishops have elevated their station literally to Royalty among men.

There is nothing in The Word of YHVH or the historical record indicating that The Messiah Yahusha ever wore such a hat or created such a priestly High Class of royalty.

“…there are strong evidences that Dagon was Nimrod…. All scholars agree that the name and worship of Dagon were imported from Babylonia.”

– The Two Babylons, Hislop, p. 215

“In their veneration and worship of Dagon, the high priest of paganism would actually put on a garment that had been created from a huge fish! The head of the fish formed a mitre above that of the old man, while its scaly, fan-like tail fell as a cloak behind, leaving the human limbs and feet exposed.”

–        Babylon and Nineveh, Austen Henry Layard, p. 343

“The most prominent form of worship in Babylon was dedicated to Dagon, later known as Ichthys, or the fish. In Chaldean times, the head of the church was the representative of Dagon, he was considered to be infallible, and was addressed as ‘Your Holiness’. Nations subdued by Babylon had to kiss the ring and slipper of the Babylonian god-king. The same powers and the same titles are claimed to this day by the Dalai Lama of Buddhism, and the Pope. Moreover, the vestments of paganism, the fish mitre and robes of the priests of Dagon are worn by the Catholic bishops, cardinals and popes

-The Wine of BabylonPg 9

ICHTYS  Symbol of “The Fish”

Dagon (fish worship) is the source of the Christian symbol of the fish.  Actually it can be traced back to fish worship of Dagon and the Zodiac Sign of Pisces.  We are “told” it is because some of the disciples were “fisherman” or that Yahusha would make us “fishers of men” among other excuses.  The truth is that it is nowhere defined in Scripture but yet… the real source of the Christian fish symbol is that of Dagon fish worship.  Just like the Mitre Hat.

According to Egyptian mythology, when the judges found Osiris [Nimrod] guilty of corrupting the religion of Adam and cut up his body, they threw the parts into the Nile. It was said that a fish ate one of these chunks and became transformed. Later, Isis [Semiramis] was fishing along the river bank when she fished up a half-man, half-fish. This sea creature was Dagon, the reincarnated Nimrod.And Dagon is the representation of Nimrod (of ancient Babylon) resurrecting out of the ocean depths as a half-man, half-fish.

Smith’s Bible Dictionary Dagon Fish Worship
– from “Ancient Pagan and Modern Christian Symbolism”

“Dagon is the diminutive of dag, and signifies… fish… The Babylonians believed that a being, part man and part fish, emerged from the Erythraean Sea, and appeared in Babylonia in the early days of its history… Representations of this fish-god have been found among the sculptures of Nineveh. The Philistine Dagon was of a similar character.”  – Manners and Customs of the Bible;by James Freeman

“The Jesus Fish is actually an Ichthys, an ancient symbol of fertility worship that represented the vagina among various pagan religions. In Rome, it was most commonly associated with the Greco-Roman deity Venus, as well as Aphrodite.

While the earliest Christians were aware of this symbol, they did not make use of it (they also didn’t make use of the cross either). Instead they used the symbol of Alpha-Omega alongside Hebrew and Aramaic lettering to mark their documents and places of worship.

This changed in the year of 313 AD, 300 years after the approximate death of Jesus, when the Roman Empire under Constantine and the Council of Nicea declared Christianity to be the only legal state religion, which they did by essentially mixing all the various pagan religions into one, makinhlg public conversion easier. One of the pagan symbols “adopted” by the Council of Nicea was the Ichthys, which they merely turned sideways.

The concept of being “born again” also originates from fertility worship. In order to belong to a temple in the ancient world, one was required to go through a series of ritual initiations. Within the temples to Venus, an individual would be lifted up and carried through a large Ichthys structure, symbolizing rebirth. They were leaving their life as a commoner behind and being “born again” into their new life as a neophyte.”

This also explains the symbol for Christianity, the fish – the “Ichthys” which is Dagon:

Definition – “Ichthyic” – “of, pertaining to, or characteristic of fishes; the fish world in all its orders.”

–        Oxford English Dictionary (C. E.)

The worship of Dagon also affected people’s eating habits. Now the mystery of why the Catholics abstain from eating fish on all days except Fridays comes into focus.  This restriction of eating fish is not found in Scripture.  Whether they realize it or not, they are practicing the ancient pagan rite of worshipping Dagon.  The Catholic Encyclopedia even admits such abominations of the “so-called Church”:

“As to the ritual of his worship… we only know from ancient writers that, for religious reasons, most of the Syrian peoples abstained from eating fish, a practice that one is naturally inclined to connect with the worship of a fish-god.”  –   The Catholic Encyclopedia, 1913, Encyclopedia Press, Inc

Remember in The Word of YHVH we are forbidden to have any graven images including that of a FISH or a CROSS.  It is commanded to have NO GRAVEN IMAGES at all of any kind period.  YHVH forbid such idols because over time we would eventually forget their true origins and buy into lies that they are somehow symbolic of Yahusha.

Articles at ABCHuffpostVultureThe Atlantic WireThe New Inquiry all claim that mermaids are the next big thing in popular culture. Among other signs, some authors point to the fact that Netflix’s has acquired first-run rights to show the Australian show Mako Mermaids in several markets. At Slate, however, Forrest Wickman disagrees stating, “I can give you one simple reason that mermaids aren’t the new vampires, and never will be: genitals. If you want people to fantasize about you, or about being you, genitals are pretty much a requirement.”

Water is a reference to the flow of the collective unconsciousness – that which creates realities in which we learn through experience and emotions. Water Deities refers to Gods and Goddesses who allegedly came from the sea of consciousness to create a biogenetic program that goes back to the beginning and is about to end. Most deities arrived from the sky (higher frequency) —> moving into the sea to create, then left, usually saying they would return one day.   (this is how science explains away the true existence of supernatural/spiritual/inter-dimensional beings they can’t wrap their head around.  Or, that they want to keep occulted away from our understanding.)


In ancient Greek mythology, Amphitrite (not to be confused with Aphrodite) was a sea-goddess. Under the influence of the Olympian pantheon, she became merely the consort of Poseidon, and was further diminished by poets to a symbolic representation of the sea. In Roman mythology, the consort of Neptune, a comparatively minor figure, was Salacia.

Amphitrite was a daughter of Nereus and Doris – and thus a Nereid – according to Hesiod’s Theogony, but of Oceanus and Tethys and thus an Oceanid according to Apollodorus, who actually lists her among both the Nereids and the Oceanids. Amphitrite’s offspring included seals and dolphins. By her, Poseidon had a son, Triton, and a daughter, Rhode (if this Rhode was not actually fathered by Poseidon on Halia or was not the daughter of Asopus as others claim). Apollodorus (3.15.4) also mentions a daughter of Poseidon and Amphitrite named Benthesikyme. Amphitrite is not fully personified in the Homeric epics: “out on the open sea, in Amphitrite’s breakers” (Odyssey iii.101); she shares her Homeric epithet Halosydne (“sea-nourished”) with Thetis: in some sense the sea-nymphs are doublets.


The mitre on the head of the goddess Cybele is striking similarity to the ‘fish head’ of the God Dagon. The Great Goddess of Asia Minor is the oldest true Goddess known, predating the Goddesses of the Sumerian and Egyptians by at least 5,000 years. Cybele was worshipped in Rome and was also called the “Magna Mater”, or the great queen mother goddess, which evolved into Catholic Mariology.

Originally a Phrygian goddess, Cybele (sometimes given the etymology “she of the hair” if her name is Greek, not Phrygian, but more widely considered of Luwian origin, from Kubaba) (Roman equivalent: Magna Mater or ‘Great Mother’) was a manifestation of the Earth Mother goddess who was worshipped in Anatolia from Neolithic times. Like Gaia or her Minoan equivalent Rhea, Cybele embodies the fertile earth, a goddess of caverns and mountains, walls and fortresses, nature, wild animals (especially lions and bees).

Her title ‘Mistress of the Animals’ (potnia theron) which is also associated with the Minoan Great Mother, alludes to her ancient Paleolithic roots. She is a life-death-rebirth deity. Her consort, whose cult was introduced , is her son Attis.Cybele was supposed to have been born on Mount Ida in Asia Minor; this is the source of her epithet Idaea.

Cybele’s most ecstatic followers were males who ritually castrated themselves, after which they were given womens clothing and assumed female identities, who were referred to by contemporary commentator Kallimachos in the feminine Gallai , and who other contemporary commetators in ancient Greece and Rome reffered to as Gallos or Galli. Her Priestesses led the people in orgiastic ceremonies with wild music, drumming and dancing and drink. She was associated with the mystery religion concerning her son, Attis, who was castrated and resurrected. The dactyls were part of her retinue. Other followers of Cybele, Phrygian kurbantes or Corybantes expressed her ecstatic and orgiastic cult in music especially drumming, clashing of shields and spears, dancing, singing, shouts, all at night. Atalanta and Hippomenes were turned into lions by Cybele after having sex in one of her temples.

Dagon or Atargis

Dagon was the god of the Philistines. The idol was represented in the combination of both man and fish. The name ‘Dagon’ is derived from ‘dag’ which means ‘fish’. Although there was a deep affection from Dagon’s worshipers to their deity, the symbol of a fish in human form was really meant to represent fertility and the vivifying powers of nature and reproduction. His name is a lot like ‘Dogon’.

Dagon was a major northwest Semitic god, the god of grain and agriculture according to the few sources to speak of the matter, worshipped by the early Amorites, by the people of Ebla, by the people of Ugarit and a chief god (perhaps the chief god) of the Biblical Philistines. His name appears in Hebrew as (in modern transcription Dagon, Tiberian Hebrew), in Ugaritic as dgn (probably vocalized as Dagnu), and in Akkadian as Dagana, Daguna usually rendered in English translations as Dagan.

Fuxi or Fu Hsi

The Chinese have maintained that their civilization was founded by amphibious beings that had a man’s head and a fish tail. The entity, named Fuxi, has been depicted as both male or female. The date traditionally ascribed to him is 3,322BC. In Chinese mythology, Fu Xi or Fu Hsi was the first of the mythical Three Sovereigns of ancient China. He is a culture hero reputed to be the inventor of writing, fishing, and trapping.


Fu Xi was born on the lower-middle reaches of the Yellow River in a place called Chengji (possibly modern Lantian, Shaanxi or Tianshui, Gansu). According to legend the land was swept by a great flood and only Fuxi and his sister Nuwa survived. The retired to Kunlun Mountain where they prayed for a sign from the Emperor of Heaven. The divine being approved their union and the siblings set about procreating the human race. Fu Xi then came to rule over his decedents although reports of his long reign vary between sources from 115 years (2852 – 2737 BCE) to 116 years (2952-2836 BCE). He lived for 197 years altogether and died at a place called Chen (modern Huaiyang, Henan) where his mausoleum can still be found.

During the time of his predecessor Nuwa (who according to some sources was also his wife and/or sister) society was matriarchal and primitive. Childbirth was seen to be miraculous not requiring the participation of the male and children only knew their mothers. As the reproductive process became better understood ancient Chinese society moved towards a patriarchal system and Fu Xi assumed primary importance.

Fu Hsi taught his subjects to cook, to fish with nets, and to hunt with weapons made of iron. He instituted marriage and offered the first open air sacrifices to heaven. A stone tablet, dated 160 CE shows Fu Hsi with Nuwa, who was both his wife and his sister.

Traditionally, Fu Hsi is considered the originator of the I Ching (also known as the Yi Jing or Zhou Yi), which work is attributed to his reading of the He Map (or the Yellow River Map). By this tradition, Fu Hsi had the arrangement of the trigrams of the I Ching revealed to him supernaturally. This arrangement precedes the compilation of the I Ching during the Zhou dynasty. Fu Hsi is said to have discovered the arrangement in markings on the back of a mythical dragon-horse (sometimes said to be a turtle) that emerged from the river Luo. This discovery is also said to have been the origin of calligraphy. Fu Hsi is also credited with the invention of the Guqin, together with Shennong and Huang Di.


Glaucus And Scylla

In Greek mythology, Glaucus (“shiny,” “bright” or “bluish-green”) was the name of several different figures, including one God. These figures are sometimes referred to as Glaukos or Glacus. Glaucus was a Greek sea-god.

According to Ovid, Glaucus began life as a mortal fisherman living in the Boeotian city of Anthedon. He discovered by accident a magical herb which could bring the fish he caught back to life, and decided to try eating it. The herb made him immortal, but also caused him to grow fins instead of arms and a fish’s tail instead of legs, forcing him to dwell forever in the sea. Glaucus was initially upset by this side-effect, but Oceanus and Tethys received him well and he was quickly accepted among the deities of the sea, learning from them the art of prophecy.

Glaucus fell in love with the beautiful nymph Scylla, but she was appalled by his fish-like features and fled onto land when he tried to approach her. He asked the witch Circe for a potion to make Scylla fall in love with him, but Circe fell in love with him. She tried to win his heart with her most passionate and loving words, telling him to scorn Scylla and stay with her. But he replied that trees would grow on the ocean floor and seaweed would grow on the highest mountain before he would stop loving Scylla. In her anger, Circe poisoned the pool where Scylla bathed, transforming her into a terrible monster with twelve feet and six heads.

In Euripides’ play Orestes, Glaucus was a son of Nereus and says that he assisted Menelaus on his homeward journey with good advice. He also helped the Argonauts. It was believed that he commonly came to the rescue of sailors in storms, having once been one himself.


In Greek mythology, Iris was the daughter of Thaumas and the ocean nymph Electra and one of the Oceanids (according to Hesiod), the personification of the rainbow and messenger of the gods. As the rainbow unites Earth and heaven, Iris is the messenger of the gods to men; in this capacity she is mentioned frequently in the Iliad, but never in the Odyssey, where Hermes takes her place.

Iris is represented as a youthful virgin, with wings of gold, who hurries with the swiftness of the wind from one end of the world to the other, into the depths of the sea and the underworld. She is especially the messenger of Hera, and is associated with Hermes, whose caduceus or staff she often holds.

By command of Zeus she carries in an ewer water from the Styx, with which she puts to sleep all who perjure themselves. Her attributes are the caduceus and a vase. She is also represented as supplying the clouds with the water needed to deluge the world. Iris is the personal messenger of Hera, queen of the gods and is Hera’s go-between from Mount Olympus to the mortal world.The word iridescence is derived in part from the name of this goddess.

Many were the progeny of the sea; some of them we shall meet later in saga, for example the Graeae, Gorgons, and the Harpies.

Progeny of the sea often appear grotesque or fantastic. At this point, however, we single out only Iris [eye’ris], a beautiful descendant of Pontus and Gaia.

Iris, fleet-footed and winged, is the lovely goddess of the rainbow, the meaning of her name. She is also (like Hermes) a messenger of the gods.

Aristotle’s friend, Eudoxus, visited Egypt and returned claiming that the Egyptians had a tradition that one of their gods, Osiris or Ra (from Ray of Light), could not walk because his legs had grown together.

Osiris was the god of the Dead. He is a god of agriculture, for his death and resurrection are like those of a seed, cast in to the dark Earth, motionless. New life breaks through its husk to push its way to the surface of the earth as a green shoot. He became one of the most important of Egyptian gods because he symbolized the triumph of life over death.  (that is what the Egyptian Corona Death Crown symbolized)

Osiris (NIMROD/Dagon) has never been shown with the body of a fish but this image depicts his mummified form looking like the scales of a fish.


Matsya the Fish appeared in the Satya Yuga and represents beginning of life.

The Fish Incarnation is the first incarnation of Vishnu. Lord Vishnu takes the form of a fish in order to retrieve the Vedas from the demon Hayagriva, who stole them from Lord Brahma. Without the Vedas, Creation of the Universe cannot take place. He slayed the demon Hayagriva, recovered the Vedas, and also saved the pious king Satyavrata from the deluge so that life and religion can be preserved for the next cycle of Creation.

According to legend, the king Manu was washing his hands in a river when a little fish swam into his hands and begged him to save it. He put it in a jar, which it soon outgrew; he successively moved it to a tank, a river and then the ocean. The fish then warned him that a Great Flood would occur in a week that would destroy all life. Manu therefore built a boat which the fish towed to a mountaintop when the flood came, and thus he survived along with some “seeds of life” to re-establish life on earth.



In Greek mythology, the Naiads (from the Greek, “to flow,” and, “running water”) were a type of nymph who presided over fountains, wells, springs, streams, and brooks, as river gods embodied rivers, and some very ancient spirits inhabited the still waters of marshes, ponds and lagoon-lakes, such as pre-Mycenaean Lerna in the Argolid. Naiads were associated with fresh water, as the Oceanids were with saltwater and the Nereids specifically with the Mediterranean; but because the Greeks thought of the world’s waters as all one system, which percolated in from the sea in deep cavernous spaces within the bosom of the earth, to rise freshened in seeps and springs, there was some overlap. Arethusa, the nymph of a spring, could make her way through subterranean flows from the Peloponnesus, to surface on the island of Sicily. In his Dionisiaca, (XVI.356; XXIV.123) Nonnus gave the naiads the nonce-name Hydriades (“water ladies”).

Otherwise, the essence of a naiad was bound to her spring. If a naiad’s body of water dried, she died. Though Walter Burkert points out, “When in the Iliad [xx.4-9] Zeus calls the gods into assembly on Mount Olympus, it is not only the well-known Olympians who come along, but also all the nymphs and all the rivers; Okeanos alone remains at his station,” (Burkert 1985), Greek hearers recognized this impossibility as the poet’s hyperbole, which proclaimed the universal power of Zeus over the ancient natural world: “the worship of these deities,” Burkert confirms, “is limited only by the fact that they are inseparably identified with a specific locality.”

They were often the object of archaic local cults, worshipped as essential to fertility and human life. Boys and girls at coming-of-age dedicated their childish locks to the local naiad of the spring. In places like Lerna their waters’ ritual cleansings were credited with magical medical properties. Animals were ritually drowned there. Oracles might be sited by ancient springs.

When a mythic king is credited with marrying a naiad and founding a city, Robert Graves offers a sociopolitical reading: the new arriving Hellenes justify their presence by taking to wife the naiad of the spring, so, in the back-story of the myth of Aristaeus, Hypseus, a king of the Lapiths wed Chlidanope, a naiad, who bore him Cyrene. In parallels among the Immortals, the loves and rapes of Zeus, according to Graves’ readings, record the supplanting of ancient local cults by Olympian ones (Graves 1955, passim). Aristaeus had more than ordinary mortal experience with the naiads: when his bees died in Thessaly, he went to consult the naiads. His aunt Arethusa invited him below the water’s surface, where he was washed with water from a perpetual spring and given advice. A less well-connected mortal might have drowned, being sent as a messenger in this way to gain the advice and favor of the naiads for his people.

Naiads could be dangerous: Hylas of the Argo’s crew was lost when he was taken by naiads fascinated by his beauty (illustration, above right). The naiads were also known to exhibit jealous tendencies. Theocritus’ story of naiad jealousy was that of a shepherd, Daphnis, who was the lover of Nomia; Daphnis had on several occasions been unfaithful to Nomia and as revenge she permanently blinded him. Salmacis forced the god Hermaphroditus into a carnal embrace and, when he sought to get away, fused with him.

The Naiads were either daughters of Zeus or various Oceanids, but a genealogy for such ancient, ageless creatures is easily overstated. The water nymph associated with particular springs was known all through Europe in places with no direct connection with Greece, surviving in the Celtic wells of northwest Europe that have been rededicated to Saints, and in the medieval Melusine.


In Greek mythology, the Nereids (neer’-ee-eds) are sea nymphs, the fifty daughters of Nereus and Doris. They often accompany Poseidon and are always friendly and helpful towards sailors fighting perilous storms. They are particularly associated with the Aegean Sea, where they dwelt with their father in the depths within a silvery cave. The most notable of them is Thetis, wife of Peleus and mother of Achilles; Amphitrite, wife of Poseidon; and Galatea, love of the Cyclops Polyphemus. In classical art they are frequently depicted riding an assortment of sea creatures – dolphins, sea monsters, and hippocampi.


Nereus was an ancient sea god with prophetic powers and the ability to change his shape. Nereus mated with one of the Oceanids (Doris) and became the father of fifty daughters called Nereids [nee’re-idz]; three of these are important: Thetis, Galatea and Amphitrite. Nereids are beautiful and often, but not always, depicted as mermaids; and usually they can shange their shape. He was known for his truthfulness and virtue.

Nereus, in Greek Mythology, was the eldest son of Pontus and Gaia, the Sea and the Earth, a Titan who (with Doris) fathered the Nereids, with whom Nereus lived in the Aegean Sea. In the Iliad the Old Man of the Sea is the father of Nereids, though Nereus is not directly named. He was one of the manifestations of the Old Man of the Sea, never more so than when he was described, like Proteus, as a shapeshifter with the power of prophecy, who would aid heroes such as Heracles who managed to catch him even as he changed shapes. Nereus and Proteus (“first”) seem to be two manifestations of the god of the sea who was supplanted by Poseidon when Zeus overthrew Cronus. The earliest poet to link Nereus with the labours of Heracles was Pherekydes, according to a scholion on Apollonius of Rhodes.

During the course of the fifth century BCE, Nereus was gradually replaced by Triton, who does not appear in Homer, in the imagery of the struggle between Heracles and the sea-god who had to be restrained in order to deliver his information that was employed by the vase-painters, independent of any literary testimony.


The Nommo are ancestral spirits(sometimes referred to as deities) worshipped by the Dogon tribe of Mali, Africa. The word Nommos is derived from a Dogon word meaning, ‘to make one drink’. The Nommos are usually described as amphibious, hermaphroditic, fish-like creatures.

Folk art depictions of the Nommos show creatures with humanoid upper torsos, legs/feet, and a fish-like lower torso and tail. The Nommos are also referred to as Masters of the Water, the Monitors, and “the Teachers. Nommo can be a proper name of an individual, or can refer to the group of spirits as a whole.

Dogon mythology states that Nommo was the first living creature created by the sky god Amma. Shortly after his creation, Nommo underwent a transformation and multiplied into four pairs of twins. One of the twins rebelled against the universal order created by Amma.

To restore order to his creation, Amma sacrificed another of the Nommo progeny, whose body was dismembered and scattered throughout the world. This dispersal of body parts is seen by the Dogon as the source for the proliferation of Binu shrines throughout the Dogons’ traditional territory; wherever a body part fell, a shrine was erected.

In the latter part of the 1940’s, French anthropologists Marcel Griaule and Germaine Dieterlen (who had been working with the Dogon since 1931) were the recipients of additional, secret mythologies, concerning the Nommo. The Dogon reportedly related to Griaule and Dieterlen a belief that the Nommos were inhabitants of a world circling the star Sirius (see the main article on the Dogon for a discussion of their astronomical knowledge).

The Nommos descended from the sky in a vessel accompanied by fire and thunder. After arriving, the Nommos created a reservoir of water and subsequently dove into the water. The Dagon legends state that the Nommos required a watery environment in which to live.

According to the myth related to Griaule and Dieterlen: “The Nommo divided his body among men to feed them; that is why it is also said that as the universe “had drunk of his body,” the Nommo also made men drink. He gave all his life principles to human beings.” The Nommo was crucified on a tree, but was resurrected and returned to his home world. Dogon legend has it that he will return in the future to revisit the Earth in a human form.

The Nommos bear some physical resemblance to several other mythological beings: the Oannes (Babylon), the Enki (Sumeria), Fuxi (China), Dagon (Philistine), and Nereus (Greece), to name a few. It is also interesting to note the motifs common to the story of Nommo with the story of Osiris (dismemberment and the erection of temples at the final resting places of their respective body parts). There are also numerous parallels between the story of Nommo and the traditions of Jesus: both were crucified, both instructed followers to ‘drink of my body’, and both were associated with the fish. (Satan and his minions are spiritual beings who were given information before their fall and are still able to move about freely through time and space.  They have been setting up false religions since time began to confuse humans and hide the truth of the WORD.)

In the 1970’s a book by Robert Temple titled The Sirius Mystery popularized the traditions of the Dogon concerning Sirius and the Nommos. In The Sirius Mystery, Temple came to the conclusion that the Dogon’s knowledge of astronomy and non-visible cosmic phenomenon could only be explained if said knowledge was imparted upon them by an extraterrestrial race that had visited the Dogon at some point in the past and given them information concerning the cosmos. Temple related this race to the legend of the Nommos and contended that the Nommos were extraterrestrial inhabitants of the Sirius star system who had traveled to earth at some point in the distant past and had imparted knowledge about the Sirius star system as well as our own solar system upon the Dogon tribes.  (Ahh so this was the beginning of the “Extra Celestial Saviors” Agenda.  So funny that they can make you believe that there are extraterrestrials who provided the knowledge but you won’t believe that the GOD who created all things is the only true source of knowledge and wisdom.)

Some anthropologists studying the Dogon (notably Walter van Beek) found no evidence that they had any historical advanced knowledge of Sirius. Van Beek postulated that Griaule engaged in such leading and forceful questioning of his Dogon sources that new myths were created in the process by confabulation.

Carl Sagan has noted that the first reported association of the Dogon with the knowledge of Sirius as a binary star was in the 1940’s, giving the Dogon ample opportunity to gain cosmological knowledge about Sirius and the solar system from more scientifically advanced, terrestrial societies whom they had come in contact with. It has also been pointed out that binary star systems like Sirius are theorized to have a very narrow or non-existent Goldilocks Zone, and thus a high improbability of containing a planet capable of sustaining life (particularly life as dependant on water as the Nommos were reported to be).

It should also be noted that by the 1940’s when Marcel Griaule and Germaine Dieterlen recorded the Nommo legends, the Dogon had already come into contact with Islam and Christianity, which could have influenced some of their earlier Nommo traditions, notably those that are similar to Christian traditions concerning Jesus.


The Repulsive or Repellent Ones, a demon, the fish-men who the Babylonians said brought them civilization. The first and most famous was called Oannes or Oe, who was thought to have come from a ‘great egg‘. This one during the day stayed on the surface among people, but for all the night he had to go into the sea. He, with other similar beings called Annedotus, is the creator of the Babylonian civilization (Berosso). Later Oannes will become the Fish-God for the PhilistinesSource

Oannes, in Mesopotamian mythology, an amphibious being who taught mankind wisdom. Oannes, as described by the Babylonian priest Berosus, had the form of a fish but with the head of a man under his fish’s head and under his fish’s tail the feet of a man. In the daytime he came up to the seashore of the Persian Gulf and instructed mankind in writing, the arts, and the sciences. Oannes was probably the emissary of Ea, god of the freshwater deep and of wisdom. Source: Britannica


In Greek and Roman mythology, the Oceanids were the three thousand daughters of the Titans Oceanus and Tethys. One of these many daughters was also said to have been the wife of the god Poseidon, typically named as Amphitrite.Each of these nymphs was the patron of a particular spring, river, ocean, lake, pond, pasture, flower or cloud. Oceanus and Tethys also had 3000 sons, the river-gods (Potamoi). Whereas most sources limit the term Oceanids or Oceaniades to the daughters, others include both the sons and daughters under this term.


Oceanus was believed to be the world-ocean in classical antiquity, which the ancient Romans and Greeksconsidered to be an enormous river encircling the world. Strictly speaking, Okeanos was the ocean-stream at the Equator in which floated the habitable hemisphere (oikoumene). In Greek mythology, this world-ocean was personified as a Titan, a son of Uranus and Gaia. In Hellenistic and Roman mosaics, this Titan was often depicted as having the upper body of a muscular man with a long beard and horns, and the lower torso of a serpent(cf. Typhon). On a fragmentary archaic vessel (British Museum 1971.11-1.1) of ca 580 BCE, among the gods arriving at the wedding of Peleus and the sea-nymph Thetis, is a fish-tailed Oceanus, with a fish in one hand and a serpent in the other, gifts of bounty and prophecy. In Roman mosaics he might carry a steering-oar and cradle a ship.

Some scholars believe that Oceanus originally represented all bodies of salt water, including the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean, the two largest bodies known to the ancient Greeks. However, as geography became more accurate, Oceanus came to represent the stranger, more unknown waters of the Atlantic Ocean (also called the “Ocean Sea”), while the newcomer of a later generation, Poseidon, ruled over the Mediterranean.

Oceanus’ consort is his sister Tethys, and from their union came the ocean nymphs, also known as the three-thousand Oceanids, and all the rivers of the world, fountains, and lakes. From Cronus, of the race of Titans, the Olympian gods have their birth, and Hera mentions twice in Iliad book xiv her intended journey “to the ends of the generous earth on a visit to Okeanos, whence the gods have risen, and Tethys our mother who brought me up kindly in their own house.” In most variations of the war between the Titans and the Olympians, or Titanomachy, Oceanus, along with Prometheus and Themis, did not take the side of his fellow Titans against the Olympians, but instead withdrew from the conflict. In most variations of this myth, Oceanus also refused to side with Cronus in the latter’s revolt against their father, Uranus.


Olokun is experienced in male and female personifications, depending on what region and of West Africa He/She is worshipped. Olokun is personified in several human characteristics; patience, endurance, sternness, observation, meditation, appreciation for history, future visions, and royalty personified. Its characteristics are found and displayed in the depths of the Ocean. Its name means Owner (Olo) of Oceans (Okun).

Olokun is considered the patron orisa of the descendants of Africans that were carried away during the Maafa, or what is sometimes referred to as the Transatlantic Slave Trade or Middle Passage. Olokun works closely with Oya (Deity of Sudden Change)and Egungun (Collective Ancestral Spirits) to herald the way for those that pass to ancestorship, as it plays a critical role in Death (Iku), Life and the transition of human beings and spirits between these two existences.

Olokun also signifies unfathomable wisdom. That is, the instinct that there is something worth knowing, perhaps more than can ever be learned, especially the spiritual sciencesthat most people spend a lifetime pondering. Olokun also governs material wealth, psychic abilities, dreaming, meditation, mental health and water-based healing.

Olokun is one of many Orisa known to help women that desire children. Olokun also is worshipped by those that seek political and social ascension, which is why heads of state, royalty, entrepreneurs and socialites often turn to Olokun to not only protect their reputations, but propel them further among the ranks of their peers.


In Greek mythology, Phorcys, or Phorkys was one of the names of the “Old One of the Sea”, the primeval sea god, who, according to Hesiod, was the son of Pontus and Gaia. According to the Orphic hymns Phorcys, Cronos and Rhea were the eldest offspring of Oceanus and Tethys (Kerenyi p 42). Other names for the Old Man are Nereus and Proteus (Kerenyi pp 42-43). His wife was Ceto and together they had many children, all hideous monsters (except for the Hesperides) collectively known as the Phorcydes. The Gorgons and Scylla were four of his beautiful children, but they were turned into monsters. In ancient mosaics he was depicted as a fish-tailed merman with crab-claw fore-legs and red.

In Greek mythology, Pontus (or Pontos, “sea”) was an ancient, pre-Olympian sea-god, son of Gaia and Aether, the Earth and the Air. Hesiod (Theogony, line 116) says that Gaia brought forth Pontos out of herself, without coupling. For Hesiod, Pontos seems little more than a personification of Sea. With Gaia, he was the father of the Old Man of the Sea, Nereus and Thaumas (the awe-striking “wonder” of the Sea), of the Sea’s dangerous aspects, Phorcys and his sister-consort Ceto, and of the “Strong Goddess” Eurybia. With Thalassa, whose own name simply means “Sea” but in a pre-Greek root, he was the father of the Telchines. Compare the sea-Titan Oceanus, who was more vividly realized than Pontus among the Hellenes.


Poseidon Greek god of the seas

Worship of Poseidon

Poseidon was a major civic god of several cities: in Athens, he was second only to Athena in importance, while in Corinth and many cities of Magna Graecia he was the chief god of the polis.[2]

In his benign aspect, Poseidon was seen as creating new islands and offering calm seas. When offended or ignored, he supposedly struck the ground with his trident and caused chaotic springs, earthquakes, drownings and shipwrecks. Sailors prayed to Poseidon for a safe voyage, sometimes drowning horses as a sacrifice; in this way, according to a fragmentary papyrusAlexander the Great paused at the Syrian seashore before the climactic battle of Issus, and resorted to prayers, “invoking Poseidon the sea-god, for whom he ordered a four-horse chariot to be cast into the waves.”[36]

According to Pausanias, Poseidon was one of the caretakers of the oracle at Delphi before Olympian Apollo took it over. Apollo and Poseidon worked closely in many realms: in colonization, for example, Delphic Apollo provided the authorization to go out and settle, while Poseidon watched over the colonists on their way, and provided the lustral water for the foundation-sacrifice. Xenophon‘s Anabasis describes a group of Spartan soldiers in 400–399 BC singing to Poseidon a paean—a kind of hymn normally sung for Apollo. Like Dionysus, who inflamed the maenads, Poseidon also caused certain forms of mental disturbance. A Hippocratic text of ca 400 BC, On the Sacred Disease[37] says that he was blamed for certain types of epilepsy.

Poseidon is still worshipped today in modern Hellenic religion, among other Greek gods. The worship of Greek gods has been recognized by the Greek government since 2017


‘Proteus’ was an ancient sea-god and the herdsman of Poseidon’s seals. Like the other sea-gods he had the gift of prophecy and the ability to change his shape at will. He used to rest in caves to ‘shelter from the heat of the Sirius. He was a son of Neptune and subject to thesea god Poseidon, and his dwelling place was either the island of Pharos, near the mouth of the Nile River, or the island of Carpathus, between Crete and Rhodes. He knew all things–past, present, and future–but would not share his knowledge unless compelled by a captur who could restrain the God–no matter what forms he might assume.

Scylla is one of the two sea monsters in Greek mythology (the other being Charybdis) which lives on one side of a narrow channel of water. The two sides of the strait are within an arrow’s range of each other, so close that sailors attempting to avoid Charybdis will pass too close to Scylla and vice versa. The phrase between Scylla and Charybdis has come to mean being in a state where one is between two dangers and moving away from one will cause you to be in danger from the other.

Traditionally the aforementioned strait has been associated with the Strait of Messina between Italy and Sicily but more recently this theory has been challenged and the alternative location of Cape Skilla in north west Greece suggested.

Scylla has the face and torso of a woman, but from her flanks grow six long necks equipped with dog heads, each of which contained three rows of sharp teeth. Her body consisted of twelve canine legs and a fish’s tail. She was one of the children of Phorcys and either Hecate, Crataeis, Lamia or Ceto (where Scylla would also be known as one of the Phorcydes).

In Greek mythology, Ceto, or Keto (Greek: “sea monster”) was a hideous aquatic monster, a daughter of Gaia and Pontus. The asteroid (65489) Ceto is named after her, and its satellite (65489) Ceto I Phorcys after her husband. She was the personification of the dangers of the sea, unknown terrors and bizarre creatures. Eventually, the word “ceto” became simple shorthand for any sea monster. It is still used in this way – cetacean is a derivation. Her husband was Phorcys and they had many children, collectively known as the Phorcydes or Phorcydides. In Greek art Ceto was drawn as a serpentine fish. Ceto also gave name to the constellation Cetus.

In Homer’s Odyssey, Odysseus is given advice by Circe to sail closer to Scylla, for Charybdis could drown his whole ship. Odysseus then successfully navigates his ship past Scylla and Charybdis, but Scylla manages to catch six of his men, devouring them alive.As retold by Thomas Bulfinch, Scylla was originally a beautiful nymph.

She scorned her many suitors and chose to live among the Nereids instead, until one day Glaucus saw and fell in love with her. Glaucus was a mortal fisherman who had previously been transformed by chewing a plant, gaining the form of a fish from his waist down. When Glaucus declared his love to Scylla she fled, taking him for a monster.

Glaucus sought the help of Circe, hoping that this witch could make Scylla to love him with her herbs, but Circe fell in love with Glaucus herself and asked him to forget Scylla. Glaucus rejected her request, declaring that his love for Scylla was eternal.Circe was enraged by Glaucus’ refusal, and turned her anger on the girl whom he loved.

She went and poisoned the water which Scylla used to bathe with her magical herbs. When Scylla waded into the water, the submerged half of her body was transformed into a combination of fish joined with six ferocious dogs’ heads sprouting from around her waist.

The dogs attacked and devoured anyone who came near, beyond her ability to control, and Scylla fled to the shore of the strait to live there alone.It is said that by the time Aeneas’ fleet came through the strait after the fall of Troy, Scylla had been changed into a dangerous rock outcropping which still stands there to this day. Scylla and Charybdis are believed to have been the entities from which the term, “Between a rock and a hard place” (ie: a difficult place) originated.

In Inuit mythology, Sedna is a sea goddess and master of the animals, especially mammals such as seals, of the ocean. She lives in Adlivun, the Inuit underworld. Sedna is also known as Arnakuagsak or Arnarquagssaq (Greenland) and Nerrivik or Nuliajuk (Alaskan). According to myth, Sedna was the daughter of the creator-god Anguta and his wife. She is said to have been so huge and hungry that she ate everything in her parents’ home, and even gnawed off one of her father’s arms as he slept. According to some versions of the myth, she took a dog for her husband. Anguta was so angry that he threw her over the side of his canoe. She clung to its sides, whereupon he chopped her fingers off one by one until she let go. She sank to the underworld, becoming the queen of the monsters of the deep, and her huge fingers became the seals, sea-lions and whales hunted by the Inuit.


In Greek mythology, silver-footed Thetis is a sea nymph, one of the fifty Nereids, daughters of “the ancient one of the seas,” Nereus, and Doris (Hesiod, Theogony), a grand-daughter of Tethys. While most extant material about Thetis concerns her role as mother of Achilles, and while she is largely a creature of poetic fancy rather than cult worship in the historical period, with one exception, a few fragmentary hints and references suggest an older layer of the tradition, in which the sea-goddess Thetis played a far more central role in the religious practices and imagination of certain Greeks. The pre-modern etymology of her name, from tithemi, “to set up, establish”, suggests the perception among Classical Greeks of an early political role. Walter Burkert considers her name a transformed doublet of Tethys.

Quintus of Smyrna, recalling this passage, does write that Thetis once released Zeus from chains; but there is no other reference to this rebellion among the Olympians, and some readers, like M.M. Willcock, have understood the episode as an ad hoc invention of Homer’s to support Achilles’ request that his mother intervene with Zeus. Laura Slatkin explores the apparent contradiction, in that the immediate presentation of Thetis in the Iliad is as a helpless minor goddess overcome by grief and lamenting to her Nereid sisters, and links the goddess’s present and past through her grief. She draws comparisons with Thetis’ role in another work of the epic Cycle concerning Troy, the lost Aethiopis, which presents a strikingly similar relationship that of the divine Dawn, Eos, with her slain son Memnon; she supplements the parallels with images from the repertory of archaic vase-painters, where Eros and Thetis flank the symmetrical opposed heroes. Thetis does not need to appeal to Zeus for immortality for her son, but snatches him away to the White Island Leuke in the Black Sea, an alternate Elysium where he has transcended death, and where an Achilles cult lingered into historic times.

Triton is a mythological Greek god, the messenger of the deep. He is the son of Poseidon, god of the sea, and Amphitrite, goddess of the sea. He is usually represented as a merman, having the upper body of a human and the tail of a fish.

Like his father, he carried a trident. However, Triton’s special attribute was a twisted conch shell, on which he blew like a trumpet to calm or raise the waves. Its sound was so terrible, that when loudly blown, it put the giants to flight, who imagined it to be the roar of a mighty wild beast (Hyginus, Poet. astronom. ii. 23). According to Hesiod’s Theogony, Triton dwelt with his parents in a golden palace in the depths of the sea. The story of the Argonauts places his home on the coast of Libya. When the Argo was driven ashore on the Lesser Syrtes, the crew carried the vessel to Lake Tritonis, whence Triton, the local deity, guided them across to the Mediterranean (Apollonius Rhodius iv. 1552).

Triton was the father of Pallas and foster parent to the goddess Athena. Pallas was killed by Athena during a fight between the two goddesses. Triton is also sometimes cited as the father of Scylla by Lamia. Triton also appeared in Roman myths and epics. In the Aeneid, Misenus, the trumpeter of Aeneas, challenged Triton to a contest of trumpeting. The god flung him into the sea for his arrogance.

Over time, Triton’s name and image came to be associated with a class of merman-like creatures, the Tritons, which could be male or female, and usually formed the escort of marine divinities. Ordinary Tritons were described in detail by the geographer Pausanias (ix. 21). A variety of Triton, the Centauro-Triton or Ichthyocentaur (“Fish-centaur”), was described as having the forefeet of a horse in addition to the human body and the fish tail. It is probable that the idea of Triton owes its origin to the Phoenician fish-deities.

Among the things named after Triton include Triton, the largest moon of the planet Neptune. This name is symbolic, as Neptune is the Roman name for Triton’s father. Triton is also associated in industry with tough, hard wearing machines such as Ford’s Triton Engines and Mitsubishi’s Triton pickup trucks.

by the Hebrews who call it the Seal of Solomon, and the Hindus

who call it the Mark of Vishnu, a god-man who was half-man, half-fish.

In Yoruba mythology, Yemoja is a mother goddess; patron deity of women, especially pregnant women; and the Ogun river (the waters of which are said to cure infertility). Her parents are Oduduwa and Obatala. She had one son, Orungan, who raped her successfully one time and attempted a second time; she exploded instead, and fifteen Orishas came forth from her. They include Ogun, Olokun, Shopona and Shango.Yemoja is also venerated in Vodun. Among the Umbandists, Yemoja is a goddess of the ocean and patron deity of the survivors of shipwrecks. In Santeria, Yemoja is the equivalent of Our Lady of Regla.
