I, Horus, son of Osiris, claim the throne of the heavens as my birthright! Is there anyone who would challenge me? A few scowled. One muttered something that sounded like "Cheese", although that could've been my imagination.

I was there, the day that Horus killed the Emperor. My glowing form was so heavy, its feet sank into the top of the tank. The lioness whirled and snarled, trying to locate my voice. She spotted me and her ears went back. Oh, how superior is the Eye of Horus to the Mouth of Isis! Thankfully,two old friends stood next to the throne. Horus wore full battle armor and a khopesh sword at his side. At his side stood Isis in a shimmering white gown, with wings of light.

Wish me happy birthday! I have commanded that my [titulary] abide like the mountains; when the sun shines its rays are bright upon the titulary of my majesty; my Horus is high upon the standard Isis and Horus," he said. Die, enemies of Ra! Horus non numero nisi serenas I count only the sunny hours. How do we beat her? I asked. Back in the day when Ra was active, she would have been much more impressive, but still.

A born killer.

He will believe in witchcraft and sorcery, even though he may otherwise be a heretic, an atheist, and a rebel. The Church never doubts, never inquires. To doubt is heresy, to inquire is to admit that you do not know—the Church does neither. Why do we choose one word more than another if there isn't any difference between them?

If you called a woman a chimpanzee instead of an angel, wouldn't there be a quarrel about a word? If you're not going to argue about words, what are you going to argue about?

Are you going to convey your meaning to me by moving your ears? The Church and the heresies always used to fight about words, because they are the only thing worth fighting about. Hence it is precisely among the heretics of every age that we find men who were filled with this highest kind of religious feeling and were in many cases regarded by their contemporaries as atheists, sometimes also as saints. Looked at in this light, men like Democritus, Francis of Assisi, and Spinoza are closely akin to one another.

Our symbol of faith is heresy. The time will come when all will see what I see. Heresy is the last and best thought. It is the perpetual New World, the unknown sea, toward which the brave all sail. It is the eternal horizon of progress. Heresy extends the hospitalities of the brain to a new thought.

Heresy is a cradle; orthodoxy, a coffin. I tell you, no virtue can exist without breaking these ten commandments; Jesus was all virtue, and acted from impulse, not from rules. I will call it the cosmic religious sense. This is hard to make clear to those who do not experience it, since it does not involve an anthropomorphic idea of God; the individual feels the vanity of human desires and aims, and the nobility and marvelous order which are revealed in nature and in the world of thought.

He feels the individual destiny as an imprisonment and seeks to experience the totality of existence as a unity full of significance. Indications of this cosmic religious sense can be found even on earlier levels of development—for example, in the Psalms of David and in the Prophets. The cosmic element is much stronger in Buddhism, as, in particular, Schopenhauer's magnificent essays have shown us.

The religious geniuses of all times have been distinguished by this cosmic religious sense, which recognizes neither dogmas nor God made in man's image. Consequently there cannot be a church whose chief doctrines are based on the cosmic religious experience. It comes about, therefore, that we find precisely among the heretics of all ages men who were inspired by this highest religious experience; often they appeared to their contemporaries as atheists, but sometimes also as saints.

Parris, Heresy. William argued holiness for these "second Sheep," without whom there'd be no elect. You can bet the Elect in Boston were pissed off about that. And it got worse. William felt that what Jesus was for the elect, Judas Iscariot was for the Preterite. Everything in the Creation has its equal and opposite counterpart. How can Jesus be an exception? Well, if he is the son of man, and if what we feel is not horror but love, then we have to love Judas too.Sign in with Facebook Sign in options.

They kill and revive, corrupt and cure. Do you let him drown because he was foolish enough to fall into the water before he had learned to swim?

Or do you fish him out, and teach him how to swim? He protects mankind, through the Legions, through the Martial corps, through the war machines of the Mechanicum. He understands the dangers. The inconsistencies. He uses you, and all the instruments like you, to protect us from harm. To protect our physical bodies from murder and damage, to protect our minds from madness, to protect our souls There are insane dangers in the cosmos, dangers that mankind is fundamentally unable to comprehend, let alone survive.

So he protects us. There are truths out there that would drive us mad by one fleeting glimpse of them. So he chooses not to share them with us. That's why he made you Remember, Garviel. The Emperor is our truth and out light. If we trust in him, he will protect. The greatest of these, physically, has been the Emperor's formal and complete unification of Terra, the outward sequel to which, this Great Crusade, we are now engaged upon. But the greatest, intellectually, has been our casting off of that heavy mantle called religion.

Religion damned our species for thousands of years, from the lowest superstition to the highest conclaves of spiritual faith. It drove us to madness, to war, to murder, it hung upon us like a disease, like a shackle ball.

I'll tell you what religion was No, you tell me. You, there? Since the earliest times, our species has striven to understand the workings of the cosmos, and where that understanding has failed, or fallen short, we have filled in the gaps, plastered over the discrepancies, with blind faith.

And I knew from Horus's memory that this kind of union was very rare-like the one time when the coin doesn't land heads or tails, but stands on it's edge, perfectly balanced.

He did not control me. I did not use him for power. We acted as one. Our voices spoke in harmony. My combat avatar formed around me, lifting me off the floor and encasing me with golden energy.

I stepped forward and raised my sword. The falcon warrior mimicked the movement, perfectly attuned to my wishes. Set turned and regarded me with cold eyes. That does not mean you can ride. And now, Set-brother,uncle,traitor-I'm going to crush you like a gnat.

He wants to see the world plunged into darkness and chaos. He is quite insane. But what do you say to a story like that? War gods do not poop on blankets. Well except for that one time. He was the hallucinated voice of a dead king whose admonitions could still carry weight.

And since he could still be heard, there is no paradox in the fact that the body from which the voice once came should be mummified, with all the equipment of the tomb providing life's necessities: food, drink, slaves, women, the lot.

There was no mysterious power that emanated from him; simply his remembered voice which appeared in hallucination to those who had known him and which could admonish or suggest even as it has before he stopped moving and breathing. And that various natural phenomena such as the whispering of waves could act as the cue for such hallucinations accounts for the belief that Osiris, or the king whose body has ceased to move and is in his mummy cloths, continues to control the flooding of the Nile.

Further, the relationship between Horus and Osiris, 'embodied' in each new king and his dead father forever, can only be understood as the assimilation of an hallucinated advising voice into the king's own voice, which then would be repeated with the next generation. Horus, go proclaim to the powers of the east And their spirits: This Unas comes, a spirit indestructible, Whom he wishes to live will live, Whom he wishes to die will die!

Horus Quotes

The principles of the bible are the groundwork of human freedom. We are not one people. We are two peoples. We are a people for Freedom and a people for Slavery. Between the two, conflict is inevitable. The darkest hour in any man's life is when he sits down to plan how to get money without earning it. Fame is a vapor, popularity is an accident, riches take wings, those who cheer today may curse tomorrow and only one thing endures - character.

Common sense is very uncommon.

To unerring time be all this committed. Bigotry is chronic dogmatism. Answering a letter from a church asking what else they should try after having failed to raise enough money on bake sales, bazaars, suppers, etc. Why not try religion?
