Did religion legitimise magick or magick legitimise religion? Logic would suggest the latter, because shamanic and animistic traditions have long predated organised religion. In this book the author considers the observations made by Sir James Fraser in The Golden Bough, when he said: “Magic is the bastard sister of science; it is therefore a truism, almost a tautology, to say that magic is necessarily false and barren, for were it ever to become true and fruitful it would no longer be magic but science”. In demonstrating just how accurate this is he considers sorcerer priests, biblical magick, wicca, the inquisition, the Big Bang and even quantum physics and concludes that religion and magick are, and indeed have to be, one and the same. He also asks if there any difference between the magickal displays attributed to saints and other conventionally ‘holy people’ and those manifested by people such as faith healers, psychics and mediums? Most controversial of all he poses the question was Jesus really the Son of God or was he a Master Magician? All of this and much, much more is considered here. This book could permanently change how you see the world.
