July 20th 1944: Assassination attempt on Hitler
On this day in 1944, German Chancellor Adolf Hitler narrowly survived an assassination attempt in what became known as the July 1944 bomb plot. The plot was led by German Army Colonel Claus von Stauffenberg and several military figures who also planned a military coup d’etat after the assassination. The plan was to place a bomb under the table in a briefcase in a conference room in Hitler’s Prussian Wolf’s Lair headquarters. However one of the attendees at the meeting moved the case behind the table leg with his foot, thus deflecting the blast from Hitler, though the blast did kill four in attendance. The Gestapo arrested at least 7000 people in response to the attack and almost 5000 were executed.

Khepri “What the hell is a Pagan”?
What is a Pagan? A European word used to group a broad group of indigenous spiritual traditonal practices. Or any persons not adhering to a Abrahamic religion.
Original Meaning: Pagan comes from a Late Latin Pagnus. It was revived during the Renaissance. It original meant “region delimited by markers”,”Countysider”,”Villager”, or “Dweller”.
The word Pagan is also related to Pangere “To fix,to fasten”.
Paganus more than likely is nothing more than Roman Military Jargon
-Jewish or Hebrews were some of the first people to distinguish themselves from other people or populations by there religion rather than by ethnic.
-Jewish people use to call Greeks “Hellene”. Which is because the form of spritiuality that was practiced by the Ancient Greeks was called “Stoics”. Which is based off of nature,reason,thinking, and practice not beilef.
-Christianity which is an off shoot or subgroup of Jewish practice and tradition pick up terms and ideas from the early Jewish tradition,used these terms to refer to Non-Christian people. Check out the Pauline epistiles. It will always juxtaposed to Hebrew.
-Archbisop of Constantinople, took offence to imperial efforts to suppress Hellenic culture.
-During this time Hellene or Gentile was the word for a Pagan.
Most note that most people don’t realise, most people of Non Abrahamic religions, believe in a main source or main diety. What is showed as polytheistic on the outside, is in essence monotheism. Different expressions of the one source, mainfested from unseen forces of nature to the ultimate manifestion as humans or human like deities. No one person can describe everything in the universe or what you may call Goddess. So thru the study of nature (Science) ppl across the world told the story of the God/Goddess, nature principles. All humans have the same anatomy for the most part, but we mainfest different qualites,principles, and degrees of attributes of nature. But we all have the same eyes,brain,legs etc. Some one ever ask you whats your zodiac. As above as below. -Khepri Neteru
Interesting things to look at. Jews view non Jews as Pagans. Yes! Christianity too, they consider you guys pagans. What is a trinity? What is the difference between Oba,Osun,Nut, or Zeus to Micheal the Arch Angel whos job or quality, or power is to protect Israel(He not doing a swell job of), Zeus is a supreme being, the “chief god so to speak”. God(Yahweh) is the god of creation love,chaos,birth, afterlife etc. The devil is the god of evil,destruction, chaos, tricker etc. And both God and the Devil both have sub workers under them Angels and Demons. Then we have Prophets and Saints. Then regular old humans. Hmmm!!!???????

Togolese Ewe twin girls wearing traditional Kente dress with a body painting! In many Voodoo communities, people consider twins to be sacred. According to the tradition, twins have two halves of the same soul. If one twin dies, the other will often carry a twin doll, believed to carry the deceased sibling’s spirit. In Haitian Voodoo, twins have special powers that can be dangerous, and a ceremony to the loa Dossou prevents them from doing harm. In Benin, twins also symbolize fertility.
