Call Me Stormy

Finding righteous currents in turbulent times

White Giants Of The New World

Rober Sepehr, author and anthropologist, introduces us to the legend of the Phoenix, early mystics and the land of Phoenicia. These places, seers and symbols have a connection to Christianity, as they serve to embody the Resurrection. But they also bear a relationship to the palm tree, and to various ancient gods, including Adonis in Greek mythology and older gods from Sumeria.  The red-plumed Phoenix was revered as well in ancient China and Korea.

This tale takes us to the founding of Carthage, which later battled with Rome. Ancient DNA studies show, though, that the Phoenicians from Carthage shared a European heritage with the Romans. Phoenician symbols turned up in Viking lore, and also appeared across present-day Great Britain. These symbols even surfaced in early North America, notably at Mystery Hill in New Hampshire. Native tribesmen across North America have tales and legends of giants that once traversed the New World. How might the Phoenicians figure into these stories and legends?
