Medical symbols and pharmacy

(An extract from Charl Durandt's Book called "Demonized Doctoring"

The serpent god logos of todays medical and pharmaceutical profession



The serpent, god logo, appears in many variations of the same theme.

The formal name given to this abomination is the “Cadeceus” or “Staff of Asclepius”, the same god to whom the Hippocratic oath is made. Not happy with one serpent, some staffs have two serpents so as to keep the yin/yang fraternity happy. The two wings represent the wings of another god called Horus, and the staff represents the power over the Tree of Life, or in other words, power over the knowledge of good and evil!

The infantile medical apologies given for this blatant devil worship, is that it represents the brass snake as used for healing by Moses in Numbers 21:8-9. What nonsense! Even that brass snake
of Moses was idolised by the Isrealites at some stage, and the use of it was prohibited in Scripture:

He removed the high places, and brake the images, and cut down the groves, and brake in pieces the brasen serpent that Moses had made: for unto those days the children of Israel did bum incense to it: and he called it Nehushtan.17 (2 Kings 18:4 (KJV)).

The same serpent which is idolised by the westem doctors is found in most of the occult world. 

Why? Because the serpent is the pnme symbol of Satan! 

Christ is the universal lamb and Satan is the universal serpent in Scripture!

The symbol is as old as humans. Any good reference book will divulge the occultic meanings and purpose of the cadeceus and the serpent or dragon. For instance: Kerykeion - The Roman caduceus. A herald’s staff, originally a magic wand. Two SERPENTS are intertwined around its top, their heads facing one another. An attribute of Hermes (Mercury) in particular. Variously interpreted, sometimes as a Symbol of fertility, two serpents copulating over an erect phallus. 

Yet it must probably be, understood primarily as a symbol of balance. In alchemy, it is a symbol of the union of opposing forces.

Dave Hunt has the following succinct answer to a question on the serpent:

WHAT ABOUT SATAN AS A SERPENT?

Question: 
I think one of the great evidences against the authenticity of the Bible is its treatment of the serpent. In the Bible the serpent is the embodiment of evil whereas ancient myths and religions give exactly the opposite view. The Bible equates the serpent with the devil, but the most ancient religions, some of which are even practiced to the present time, almost universally identify the serpent as the Savior or at least as benevolent and to be worshiped. How can the Bible be true and at the same time be so much out of touch with what is clearly the common intuition of humanity?

Response: 
This is a fascinating subject, and its implications go beyond our ability to understand fully. There is no doubt that the Bible repeatedly identifies Satan both as the serpent and the dragon, not only in Genesis 3 but elsewhere. For example, " And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent called the Devil and satan which deceiveth the whole world" (Revelation 12:9)

In view of the usual human revulsion and fear of both dragons and serpents, one would think that Satan would do everything possible to deny such a connection, yet the opposite seems to be the case, for some strange reason. How intriguing it is that both are so closely associated with nearly all pagan religions! The dragon is found on thousands of temples throughout Asia, while the serpent
permeates and even dominates the religions of India.

In view of the natural human revulsion for these creatures, this association could hardly be of human origin and would require another explanation. The biblical indication that Satan is the “god
of this world” and thus the originator of all false religions would seem to offer that explanation. Furthermore, archaeologists and explorers continue to uncover ancient representations of a woman, a serpent, and a tree in close association, a connection which undoubtedly reflects the  Genesis story of the temptation in the garden. Even today, one finds ancient Hindu temples deep in the jungles in northern lndia bearing centuries-old faded wall frescoes in which one can still make out the woman, serpent, and tree.

When asked the meaning of these symbols, the villagers, who worship the serpent, explain that the serpent brought them salvation. (maybe this explains the affinity of the medical industry for using the red cross as a symbol, themselves being fake serpent saviours, they also want to replace the real cross with their version of the cross.)

SERPENT WORSI-HP EVERYWHERE

In the temples of ancient Egypt and Rome the body of the god Serapis was encircled by the coils of a great serpent. In Hinduism one of the three chief gods, Shiva, has serpents entwined in his hair. Yoga is symbolized as a raft made of cobras, and its goal is to awaken the kundalini power coiled at the base of the human spine in the form of a serpent. Numerous other examples could be given,
from the plumed serpent Quetzalcoati, the Savior-god of the Mayas, to the annual snake dance of the Hopi Indians. One of the greatest authorities on the occult (himself a practitioner of
occultism) has written:

Serpent worship in some form permeated nearly all parts of the earth. The serpent mounds of the American Indian; the carved stone snakes of Central and South America; the hooded cobras of
India; Python, the great snake of the Greeks; the sacred serpents of the Druids; the Midgard snake of Scandinavia; the Nagas of Burma, Siam and Cambodia . . . the mystic serpent of Orpheus; the
snakes at the oracle of Delphi . . . the sacred serpents preserved in the Egyptian temples; the Uraeus coiled upon the foreheads of the Pharaohs and priests - all these bear witness to the universal veneration in which the snake was held. . .The serpent is ...... ..the symbol and prototype of the Universal Savior, who redeems the world by giving creation the knowledge of itself. . . . It has long been viewed as the emblem of immortality. It is the symbol of reincamation…

In Greek mythology a serpent was wrapped around the Orphic egg, the symbol of the cosmos. Likewise at Delphi, Greece (for centuries the location of the most sought-for and influential oracle
of the ancient world, consulted by potentates from as far away as North Africa and Asia Minor), the three legs of the acular tripod in the inner shrine of the temple were intertwined with serpents. As
one further example, consider the Greek and Roman god of medicine, Aesculapius, whose symbol was a serpent-entwined staff, from which the symbol of modem medicine, the caduceus, was derived. In the temples erected in his honor, Aesculapius was worshiped with snakes because of an ancient myth which said that he had received a healing herb at the mouth of a serpent. Here again we have the Genesis story perverted: The serpent is not the deceiver and destroyer but the Savior of mankind, replacing Jesus Christ. At graduation ceremonies of medical schools around the world, where prayers to the God of the Bible or to Jesus Christ would not be allowed, graduates, upon receiving their degree, repeat loudly in unison the Hippocratic oath. It begins "I swear by Apollo, by Aesculapius, by Hygeia and Panacea, and by all the gods and goddesses.”


Notice how the Bible depiction of Satan as a serpent and dragon, the deceiver and destroyer of mankind, and then as the god of this world, who originates pagan religions, fits the model embraced by the medical industry. 

Not satisfied with having their own special brand of idolatry, the pharmaceutical/ medical/industrial complex then foists another abomination on the patient. That is the famous prescription sign,
used worldwide and in multilingual format. The sign is the RX.

The symbol is used for the instruction (prescription) of the doctor (priest/healer) to the sorcerer (pharmacist), to issue the patient with a magic healing potion. From a medical industry textbook, this is how medical students are lulled into believing the lie by making the occult sound like a benign fairy tale:

From the medicine man of ancient times to the medical man of today, the evolution presents a fascinating study. The line of advance is not always straight and obvious. Yet, no professional owes more to the long, ago past than does the doctor. To this day the mystic sign Rx adorns the top of his prescription. Its origin
appears to go back some 5000 years and to be based on the legend of the Eye of Horus. The Egyptians used this magic eye as an amulet - to guard them against disease, suffering, and all manners of evil . . . Suffering had made Horus a healing god. As a child, he lost his vision after a vicious attack by Seth demon of evil. The mother of Horus, Isis, hurriedly called Thoth, scribe and sage to the rescue. Thoth with his wisdom, promptly restored the eye and its powers. This led the Egyptians to revere the Eye of Horus as a
symbol of godly protection and recovery.

During the Middle Ages, the Horus Eye reappeared in a new form resembling our numeral 4. Doctors and alchemists scribbled it on their prescnptions to invoke the benevolent assistance of Jupiter.

Gradually, by slow transformation, the Jupiter sign changed to Rx. . . It is this late descendant of the Eye of Horus which serves to the present day as a link between ancient and modem medicine . . .a true symbol of the durability, strength and benevolence of the healing profession through the ages. If this is not witchcrafi, then what is! And parents think that their child is being taught “science” at medical school?

Notice that some more gods have entered the arena, namely Jupiter, Thoth and Isis.

From another textbook: Egyptian Medicine

When the new-fledged doctor, fresh from his course in twentieth century medical science, examines his first patient and writes his first prescription, he avows himself a neophyte of a pagan magical cult. He may not know it as he scribbles his instructions to dispense the latest antibiotic or the newest sulpha drug. But, at the top of his prescription, he writes Rx, just a Roman ‘R’ with a stroke through the foot - and in this act he invokes Horus, the bird-headed god of the Egyptians. It is modem science reinsuring itself! Of course, as a rational being, he will probably deny it. He will say that it is no more than the dog-latin of the medico — “R” for recipe, meaning "take", just like the cook's "recipe": Take four eggs. . . .' No, sir! As Sir William Osler pointed out, it is the ‘Eye of Horus,‘ the Egyptian amulet dating back 5000 years.“


In summary then, the doctor makes an oath to a god, invokes the spirit of Horus, instructs the sorcerer to prepare the medicines, and the patient gets healing! Science indeed?

The role of the pharmacist is critical because his function is to dispense the magic potions. The word pharmacy is derived from the Greek “pharmakos”, meaning sorcerer. This function has been largely taken over by the pharmaceutical manufacturers, who pre- package the magic elixirs.

By observing the modem doctor, one can detect the strong occultic flavour surfacing.
