The Parthenon Code: Mankind's History in Marble
SYNOPSIS OF THE PARTHENON CODE
The events of Eden were part of the Greeks' collective cultural memory, and their special interpretation of those events made up the very basis of their religious system. Greek myth/art is human history. The Book of Genesis is human history. While the viewpoints of each are opposite, the recounted events match each other in convincing detail.
The Greeks knew exactly who Noah was. They called him Nereus, the "Wet One." While it is true that the Greeks built the Parthenon to glorify the serpent-worshipping Eve of Genesis, it is also true that they built it to celebrate their "victory" over Noah and his God.
What is the Parthenon Code?
The Parthenon Code is a simple method of expression devised by ancient Greek artists to communicate religious ideas and historical information to the everyday citizens of Greece. The messages were very simple and far less abstract than writing. We can compare them to other types of visual language such as stained-glass windows in the Medieval period, and even comic strip panels and story-boards for television in our own day.
It was on Athenas temple, the Parthenon, that this artistic communication reached its highest, and in many ways, its most straightforward and simple form. The seven sculptural themes on the outside of the temple and Athenas gold and ivory idol-image on the inside portrayed interconnected truths about Greek origins. These historical and religious truths all appeared in similar ways on vase-paintings or on other temple sculptures, or on both. Greek artists went to great pains to tell us who they were and where they came from. Its time we took them seriously.
