As paganism spread after the Tower of Babel fiasco, it took its many ceremonies and practices with it. Here are a few of them…
Weeping for Tammuz/Lent/Easter
In Babylon the goddess and her son appear as Rhea the great goddess “Mother” (actually Semiramis, Nimrod’s widow – see previous article) and her son Tammuz (the reincarnated Nimrod). Tammuz is also known as Bacchus that is “the Lamented one”, the one for whom the pagans celebrated 40 days of weeping each year to remember Nimrod’s death.
In Christianity before the Roman Catholic church, no observance of 40 days of Lent existed and Jesus’ death, burial and resurrection were celebrated at the biblical Passover date.
