Henry Frederick Lutz was Professor of Egyptology and Assyriology and Associate Curator of the Anthropological Museum at the University of California, Berkeley. Best known for his scholarly works on the ancient Near East, Lutz's 1922 volume aimed at a wider audience with a more accessible account of the history of viticulture and brewing in the Ancient Near East. Lutz uses translations of Egyptian hieroglyphs, interpretations of tomb drawings and statuary, as well as Hebrew and Arabic texts, to add to our knowledge of the making of alcoholic beverages in the ancient Near East and to elucidate t

Virtually all survey-accounts of ancient science leave the mistaken impression that ancient ray-theory shared the same basic aims and methods as its modern counterpart and, therefore, that the two are genetically linked. The source of confusion lies in the fact that, for the sake of simplicity and brevity, textbook authors emphasize those aspects of Greek ray-analysis that seem most innovative and forward-thinking. Viewed in this way, Greek ray-theory looks very much like its modern countrpart. In reality, ancient and modern ray-theory are worlds apart in conceptual and methodological foundati

Here is comprehensive proof that the symbolism of many ancient texts, canons, and concepts is an advanced and extremely ancient spiritual and philosophical technology that predates all extant religions and mystery schools. Consequently, here is proof, beyond disproof, that all three so-called "Faiths of Abraham" are purposeful deceptions. Accordingly, related esoterica, mystery schools, and the New Age are rife with error caused by undue reliance upon the assertions of religions and their leaders. Throughout this book, I present verifiable proof that ancient sages and prophets opposed religion
