Some science behind the scenes

Sacred geography - altars

The altars in churches in both the UK and other countries were often reused altars from the original pre-Christian site.  Those who built Churches tended to build them over the sacred places of the people who lived there, and the altar was left in place as a sort of X marks the spot, in an odd combination of spiritual and religious.  Kneel or lie on an altar and you could be at a fairly potent spot spiritually.

As with all sacred geography physical altars have a symbolic equivalent with its own meaning.

 What is perhaps the most intriguing about the reuse of the altars in Christianity, is the use to which the altar had been put in olden days.

Altars were a major part of the Mystery religions and all Mystery religions are based on sexual stimulation methods, the release of sexual energy in order to provoke a kundalini experience and thereby create a 'god'.  Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.

Professor Geoffrey Webb was Secretary of the Royal Commission on Historical Monuments.  After the Second world War Webb was assigned the task of surveying ruined churches with a view to restoration. Looking inside an altar whose top slab had been removed by a bomb blast, he found a male sexual organ carved in stone. This led him to look in other altars. Webb concluded that similar phalluses could be found inside the altars of ninety per cent of churches built up to the time of the Black Death (1348).
