    @ANIideas IT`S A SIN AGAINST 1ST COMMANDMENT OF GOD. IT`S BASED ON DEMONIC POWER AND YOU WANT TO CREATE YOUR REALITY AND WANT TO BE GOD FOR YOURSELF!
    YOU PUT YOUR TRUST IN TAROT AND DEMONS INSTEAD OF PUTTING YOUR TRUST IN GOD ONLY, YOUR NUMBER ONE!

    JOHN 6:66 / YOUR CHOICE!

  • ANIideas dit :

    @JezusSlave OK, I really think that you’ve not understood. Tarot cards were NOT created for fortune telling, nor did their images represent anything occult. Indeed, the images are predominantly Christian – that’s why the Church never opposed their spread through Europe as a card game!

    Just because a bunch of occultists waffle on about the cards being somehow mysterious or magical doesn’t mean we have to believe them. I don’t.

    So I don’t trust in tarot, I just play the game.

  • JezusSlave dit :

    @ANIideas IT STARTS FROM GAMES.MOVIES, MUSIC AND FINISH IN OCCULTISM!
    THERE ARE NORMAL CARDS.
    YOUR CHOICE!

  • ANIideas dit :

    @JezusSlave Tarot cards are normal – they consist of a bog standard pack of Latin suited playing cards with the addition of some trumps. For 350 years, nobody used them for anything other than card games. Why would playing a game with a pack of playing cards intended for playing that game, without any occult origin or meaning, lead to occultism? Would you say this of Happy Families or 7s or Top Trumps, or Pokemon?

    realize the bible was made to control minds and have followers, global history, well obviously before christ there were religions.. nature based religions pagens, celts etc w.e none the less they posed a threat to your bible preaching jezusslaves that end up commenting on these videos like we have here.. they were labeld as demons witches devil worshipers, then the inquisition came to erase the threat. now occult means hidden knowledge in the dictionary. so, ask questionss. seek the truth

  • josephcorsale dit :

    @ANIideas actualy they where greek mythological gods these gods are then taken on by the roman mythology and then into roman catholosism do your research

  • ANIideas dit :

    @arcticwolfxno1x What were Greek gods? Tarot trumps?

    There was a forerunner to the tarot pack that did indeed feature the Greek pantheon in the role of trumps – they were to celebrate the state visit by the Greek Emperor. However, the tarot’s trumps would appear to be a triumph procession with a simple Christian allegory in three groups (the mortal, the moral, and the celestial) which served to indicate their order (they were not originally numbered, so this was an important function).

  • arcticwolfxno1x dit :

    @ANIideas sorry about that maybe i should enphasize , what ive read , here goes.
    Filippo Maria Visconti, duke of Milano and perhaps the richest man in Italy in the early renaissance, had a fatal disturbance in his youth. His father Giangaleozzo on his way to become king of Italy was poisoned and died, when Filippo was 10 years old. The mother was killed by his elder brother in prison.

  • arcticwolfxno1x dit :

    @ANIideas The dukedom broke in pieces and his cruel brother was assasinated some years later. With the help of his wife Beatrice de Tender, a 20 years older widow of the condottieri Ficino Cane, Filippo as new duke of Milano restored the earlier possessions, but the relation to the much older woman ended in tragedy, Filippo accused her of adultery and she ended beheaded.
    Filippo became a hard and lonesome man with it …

  • arcticwolfxno1x dit :

    @ANIideas In 1424/1425 Filippo was at the height of his success. He was very successful at the battlefield and the earlier power of the Milanese dukedom had redeveloped. His mistress was expecting a child, this was a great relief, because Filippo had reason to believe that he could not have children. He prepared a Triumph celebration (« Trionfo ») to show his pride and joy in the coming birth.

  • arcticwolfxno1x dit :

    @ANIideas We don’t know it for sure, and the following is half a fiction, but … The Greek Emperor came to a visit in 1424, asking for help against the Osmans, probably that meeting caused an interest in Greek gods at the side of Filippo. He decided to commission a worthful playing card deck and as major motifs were chosen 16 Greek gods. The deck should have appeared at the occasion of the projected Trionfo.

  • arcticwolfxno1x dit :

    @ANIideas In April 1425 the child was born, it was not the wished male heir, only a daughter, Bianca Maria Visconti, who later was involved variously in the production of socalled Trionfi-cards. She stayed the only surviving child. The Trionfo was celebrated in June 1425 …

  • arcticwolfxno1x dit :

    @ANIideas Time advanced and already in the same year 1425 a war between Venetia and Milan broke out and occupied the militaric energies of the North Italian cities for the next 30 years. In 1453 Constantinople was conquered by the Osmans, the questions for help stayed more or less unheard in all the years.

  • arcticwolfxno1x dit :

    @ANIideas Around the time of the fall of Constantinople the socalled Trionfi cards became a successful game. In 1454 the Italians cities decided for peace. The wonder of the renaissance could take place, printing industry entered and the knowledge in the European world exploded. The Trionfi decks developed and were later called Tarot cards.

  • arcticwolfxno1x dit :

    @ANIideas and there you have it the rest is all bullshit simply to suit retarded people who wont learn , who wont educate them selves wont question anything and just except it for what it truly is but saying that in an argument about any such text written about history or origin can we as a human race take the text at face value , the answer is no . look at religion and what its doin to us , personaly i hate religous people i hate the god concept its rediculous im with richard dawkins

  • arcticwolfxno1x dit :

    @ANIideas all religion is based on one theory of hero concept to look up to someone , then again you look at all the religions they talk about gods in the sky not heaven ,ok gods in the sky i can go with boeing 747 landin on a primative ireland with uneducated mind believing that they are gods who came to save them give them gifts clothes and water who knows but this kind of thing happened in 1940 during 2nd ww so can we actually believe that either the old gods

  • arcticwolfxno1x dit :

    @ANIideas old gods are based on the stars or they are aliens or are they just a more developed human being on this planet that could fly in the sky and like the old biblical story of destruction thes technologies where lost , like atlantis . or gilgamesh . who knows as written his story is only carried on to next genoration by the winner of a territorial battle in which as you will know the great babillonian library well wtf is it did it excist ir is it just here say chinese wispers or

  • arcticwolfxno1x dit :

    @ANIideas was it just a news North East West South , report over centuries written on paper , have you ever stopped and thought about the wonder in the fact that ancient civilizations wrote on stone granite . if we levelled our world with great destruction like hiroshima nagozaki , with nothing left to prove you was sat in a chair on that day looking at a news paper that told you about something that happened down the rd from you , who the hell would even know you existed in time .

  • 143icedtea dit :

    yes i do

  • timharris008 dit :

    You doubt is exactly the point. Let me ask you, if you place a pot of water on a fire, and assuming the fire is hot enough and the pot of water is left there long enough, is it reasonable to predict a future of boiling water? So do you think about the tarot symbolism of Fire, Shin, Judgement, Mem, Water, Hanged Man and The change of cold to hot symbolized in Temperance? Suggests that maybe you know nothing about Tarot at all and you wasted your time making this trash.

  • tokarski21 dit :

    @timharris008Well, I obviously lit a fire under you and wasted your time. I predict my work here is done.

  • JCLeSinge dit :

    I think someone would have to at best superstitious and at worst ignorant to believe in any kind of divination, Tarot included. But they are useful tool for self-analysis; contemplating the symbolism allows you to assess things in a different way and perhaps unlocks subconscious or otherwise repressed insights into yourself and your situation.

  • YaoiWiccan dit :

    To some Tarot cards are nothing more than pictures printed on cardboard. But to others who have used them for supernatural purposes they are a great tool. I at first wasn’t sure if they worked, I definitely know now that they are very powerful.

  • Crusafriedchiken dit :

    @timharris008 lol chill out, tarot cards tell you nothing. they are pieces of paper with pictures and words on them. If you take offence to such things, i would hate to know your oppinion on pokemon cards, you a « Pro » on them too?
