    The Matron and the Maiden: Baphomet Series #6

    The legend of Lilith becomes even more complex when we learn that, according to the kabbalists, there are in fact two Liliths: Lilith the Matron and Lilith the Maiden. The latter is described as the “slave” or “handmaiden” or the former. Lilith the Matron is said to be both the mate of Samael, and of [...]


    Queen of the Night: Baphomet Series #5

    There are other interpretations of the hermaphroditic first man in Genesis besides the concept of Adam Kadmon. But to understand them, we need to understand the figure of Lilith, who, according to kaballistic legend, existed prior to the creation of Eve, and was Adam’s first lover. Her name means “spirit of night.” As the story [...]


    A Tale of Two Adams (and Two Eves): Baphomet Series #4

    In The Book of Genesis there are a number of mysteries that have always puzzled scholars and vexed religious apologists. One of the most bothersome issues occurs right in the first two chapters. It appears that there are two separate tellings of the creation of the human race! The first version can be found in [...]

Here the word was described as “an early French corruption of ‘Mahomet’,” the name of the Muslim prophet, more [...]


    Pacts with the Devil: Baphomet Series #1

    Sodomy. Infanticide. Kissing a goat’s behind. Spitting and urinating on the Cross. Invoking the Devil. Worshipping a demonic idol. Denying Christ, the Virgin, the Saints, and God himself. These confessions of blasphemy, heresy, witchcraft and sexual perversion may seem like rubbish, brought about under the brutal interrogation techniques of the 14th century. But some of [...]

    Tracy R. Twyman on Outside the Box with Alex Ansary

    This happened two weeks ago but I forgot to announce it here: I had the pleasure of appearing as a guest on the local TV show Outside the Box with Alex Ansary tonight. My friend Mike Schultz (of the TV show Odyssey) was kind enough to introduce me.
