The world is full of religions and belief systems. From Christianity and Islam to Hinduism and Buddhism, there is a religion for everyone. And yet the truth is that all the religions on the planet originated in one universal belief system based upon the worship of the wise serpent. Best-selling author of numerous books of serpent worship, Philip Gardiner, unravels the secrets of our sacred past like never before and in doing so unlocks many of the world's mysteries. From the Holy Grail and the bloodlines of Jesus to the Elixir of Life and the enlightenment experience. Using textual, archeological and etymological evidence, we discover the world's sacred sites were once places of serpent worship and we trace the origin of the cult back in time and across the world to Africa where the first ever place of worship is awash with symbols of the serpent. Forget the nonsense you have heard about reptilian aliens and evil snakes on the Tree of Life and discover the facts about the origin of sacred religion - the worship of the serpent.
