* A phallic-oriented falsehood perpetuated by the exponents of
male-oriented religions who believe their collective solar-phalli are
much larger and important than is the actual case. :-)

* Faith? Has Crowleyan Thelema already arrived at the advanced
state of decomposition in which faith is required to proceed? I think
not. Faith, in this case as in most, is a cheap substitute for
accurate and honest models. It is my distinct priviledge to reveal to
the world the true power and nature of the Scarlet Woman. She was

Keys' sometime between now and the solstice; it reveals the true
nature of the Scarlet Woman and her tremendous position within the
Prophet of the Star Key.
