Nuggets from Occult Invasion—Evolution and Its Role |

Dave Hunt

Far from being a scientific theory of recent origin, evolution was an established religious belief at the heart of occultism and mysticism thousands of years before the Greeks gave it “scientific” status. And the central core of the ancient mystical theory of evolution is the lie of the serpent to Eve in the Garden, the belief that we are evolving ever upward to godhood. Sounding like Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, Masonic authority W. L. Wilmhurst in his book The Meaning of Masonry declares:

“This—the evolution of man into superman—was always the purpose of the ancient mysteries [occultisms]…. Man, who has sprung from the earth and developed through the lower kingdoms of nature, to his present rational state, has yet to complete his evolution by becoming a god-like being and unifying his conscience with the Omniscient.”

New Age leader Robert Muller, for many years Assistant Secretary-General of the United Nations expresses much the same: “I believe that humanity…has a tremendous destiny to fulfill and that a major transformation is about to take place in our evolution.” Muller states clearly:

“Decide to open yourself…to the potential of the human race, to the infinity of your inner self, and you will become the universe…at long last your real, divine, stupendous self.”
