10 Strange Idols, Totems, Stone-gods, etc. - Road Tickle

There are as many gods as there are cultures. Some are tame and almost boring. Some, well, some are just bizarre. However, please know that I mean no disrespect. Sacred is sacred, even when it’s weird (except for Moloch – I’m not calling him sacred no matter what you do to me). I recognize that I am responding to this spiritual diversity from my own puny worldview. Thanks for indulging me.

1. Moloch (Middle East)

The Moloch idol was a large, hollow brass statue with the head of a bull and a bulging human-like belly. The belly served as a firebox into which children were thrown. Pagan priests used to crash cymbals together to drown out the screams of the children as they burned alive. Well, I don’t know about you but I’m going to have nightmares.

David Icke: Anti-semitic or Just a Guy Who is Really Afraid of Lizards | Socyberty

To some David Icke is a saviour of Humanity, warning us of plots by an evil reptilian race. To others David Icke is viewed as a man using tales of Lizard people to veil antisemitism. To many he is just an ex-footballer that has gone insane. Find out more about David Icke and decide for yourself.


The wonderful world of conspiracy theorists is filled with many bizarre and interesting characters and David Icke is certainly one such bizarre and interesting character. In this counter culture there exist those who have ulterior motives and those who are pure in their message. At times some conspiracy theorists are merely trying to malign a group of people that they personally hold in contempt, while others see themselves in somewhat a messianic role. This latter group truly believes they are doing the world a service in exposing some dire plot that is trying to pull the wool of the collective eyes of Humanity. Which category does Mr. Icke fall into? David Icke is seen by some as a man who is using his platform in the conspiracy theory counter culture as a way of promoting antisemitism, while others view him as a man trying to save humanity from a diabolical evil. The majority of the world, however views Icke as an ex-footballer who went insane.
