Lost Children Of Hercules

Herodotus, perhaps the most renowned Greek historian, believed the Greek religion was mostly an Egyptian import. The Spartans, it’s believed, emigrated to Greece from Egypt. They introduced keynote numbers, including three, seven and 12 — all of which later appeared in prominent places within the Bible.

Here, we’re introduced to the strong men Hercules and Samson, who shared many traits, including a love for beautiful but dangerous women. But this goes much deeper, showing how the Israelite tribe of Dan extended its influence over the Vikings in the North and the Druids or ancient Celts found in the vicinity of Ireland. It’s the work of Robert Sepehr, author and anthropologist.

 




 

Samson’s Supernatural Strength

Samson, Hercules, and Gilgamesh were all archetypal representations. The Biblical account states that Samson was given immense strength to aid him against his enemies and allow him to perform superhuman feats, including slaying a lion with his bare hands and massacring an entire army using only the jawbone of a donkey. However, if Samson’s long hair were cut, then his sacred vow would be violated and he would lose his strength. What was the Secret of Samson’s Supernatural Strength? More from Robert Sepehr, anthropologist and author.
