    To my knowledge, we’ve only seen one New Testament name come up, Timothy.

    I didn’t think about that until you just said it but yes Timothy is New Testament. In the Bible Paul writes letters to Timothy from prison to help him take care of the flock (the church) while he was in prison. Timothy was to to be in charge and run the church basically in Paul’s absence but the believers despised him because he was so young

    Holy shit @pandace88!

    I love threads like this that start putting puzzle pieces we’ve had for awhile together. Things are clicking.

    More Egyptian mythology thoughts…

    Horus was the son of Isis and Osiris (in some versions – others his mother was Hathor as noted previously)

    Isis and Osiris were brother and sister, Isis is mother, nature, magic – still worshipped today in many pagan religions (which for all their denial of it do share some overlap with satanism). Osiris is the god of the afterlife and one of the things I found particularly interesting about him is that he is often pictured and associated with ostrich feathers – that may be what the feather symbol on the forum page is in reference to.

    Another thought I had re: the doll in the ritual that PlAndy stumbled in on…Isis had to reassemble Osiris after their brother Set killed him, chopped up his body and scattered all the pieces. This became their creation myth/version of the resurrection/breathing life into a body to blahblahblah stuff, which seems relevant to the creation of maybe confidants.

    Also given that Horus and Set had to wage a battle over who was king, and then Osiris decreed that Horus most definitely was the King, I think that might have to be taken into serious consideration when thinking about who the King card represents.

    I know the Horace/Horus name association is a too good to pass kind of thing, but if we take the characters “personality”, does Horace really goes for the God who fought to protect the Egyptian people against his uncle? Most of all, he is in this mythology, the figure of the “Son” and not the father, as Horace here… I know that Horus was the God of war also and had a falcon as a symbol (which could lead to the wings in the Lust Logo, the bird on the side of the “Forums” link on the homepage and so long….

    BUT,

    “[Horus] seems to have begun as a god of war and a sky god who was married to Hathor, but soon became considered as the opponent of Set, the son of Ra, and later the son of Osiris. However, the situation is confused by the fact that there were many Hawk gods in ancient Egypt and a number of them shared the name Horus (or more specifically Har, Heru or Hor). Furthermore, the gods Ra, Montu and Sokar could all take the form of a falcon. Each “Horus” had his own cult center and mythology, but over time they merged and were absorbed by the most popular Horus, Horus Behedet (Horus of Edfu).”

    So…

    If I was actually to pick any Ancient deity to choose from to match (the little I know of him) Horace, it would be Ra.

    “Ra (Re) was the primary name of the sun god of Ancient Egypt. He was often considered to be the King of the Gods and thus the patron of the pharaoh and one of the central gods of the Egyptian pantheon. He was also described as the creator of everything. Ra was so powerful and popular and his worship was so enduring that some modern commentators have argued that the Egyptian religion was in fact a form of veiled monotheism with Ra as the one god.” (Does it sound familiar?)

    “Ra-Horakhty-Atum was associated with Osiris as the manifestation of the sun at night.” – Seek for the light in moments of darkness, anyone?

    And, another thing, about the Eye:

    “The Eye of Ra has anthropomorphic qualities and is sometimes also called the daughter of Ra. Ra sends out his eye to seek information as well as hand out wrath and vengeance against those who have insulted him. (they are always watching, right?)

    Thus, it is a much more aggressive symbol that the Eye of Horus.

    The Eye is also given to a variety of goddesses such as Sekhmet, Wadjet, and Bast. Sekhmet once ranged down such ferocity against a disrespectful humanity that Ra eventually had to step in to stop her from exterminating the entire race.

    The Eye of Ra commonly sports a red iris.

    As if that wasn’t complicated enough, the concept of the Eye of Ra is often represented by another symbol entirely, a cobra wrapped around a sun-disk, often hovering over a deity’s head: most often Ra. The cobra is a symbol of the goddess Wadjet, who has her own connections to the Eye symbol.

    WADJET:
    Wadjet is a cobra goddess and the patron of lower Eygpt. Depictions of Ra commonly sport a sun disk over his head and a cobra wrapped around the disk. That cobra is Wadjet, a protective deity. An Eye shown in association with a cobra is usually Wadjet, although sometimes it is an Eye of Ra.

    Just to be further confusing, the Eye of Horus is sometimes called a Wadjat eye.”

    And can I ask if there is a post about the symbols of the Lust logo being all free mason symbols?
