Legend of the Serpent: The Biggest Religious Cover Up in History
Ophiolatreia is the study of Serpent Worship, which many people are surprised to discover once existed in every culture of the world.
Philip Gardiner is a leading authority on serpent worship with books and films such as Secrets of the Serpent and Gnosis, the Secret of Solomons Temple and has explored the subject around the globe. In this unique and thought provoking film, Gardiner expounds upon the underlying reasons for Serpent Worship, past and present, and provides remarkable evidence for an ancient and worldwide annihilation of its practices. From the use of snake venom as an elixir of life, to the links with all our modern religions, we discover the real history of our religious past.
Legend of the Serpent exposes the truth to many mysteries:
The Holy Grail
The Elixir of Life
Altered States of Consciousness
The Death, Burial and Resurrection of Jesus and the Hero
Directed by filmmaker Tim Cowles, this incredible documentary is a must for all seekers of truth, wisdom and our religious history.

If you wanted slick and perfect, look elsewhere. If you want astonishing facts, this is a great video. If you want to know more on the subject, I would recommend his books, especially "Secrets of the Serpent" and his fictional novel "The Brotherhood of the Snake."
With the documentaries produced by "Reality Films" or whatever they like to go by, there is NO inteligence in production WHAT SO EVER... Dulled down, Collages of Images With voice over recordings, Or ONE SINGLE FILM SHOT, of some apparent proffessional, Talking, & discussing things.... What a BLOODY Bore... Why don't you guys just consider making them into Audio CD documentaries??? Then AT LEAST we'll have some Idea of what we're getting into, & NOT BUY them....
I won't be buying any productions from this company anymore... Kindergartners make better visuals in their drawings in grade school...
Whats EVEN more distracting is the "background music", that seems to take over the voice of the speaker... GOD... I can't even here myself THINK... Sorry, but this (Alonge with ANY Other production I have purchasec from "Reality" company), is a waste of $$$
I'd Advice you to stay away, if you want good Graphically documented, & visual descriptives... Save your Money...
And the producers of this clearly have a hatred of all things Christian. Highly bigoted documentary that blames Christians for all evil and the end of snake worship.
But although Christianity did oppose snake worship, so did many other religions that go back just as far as snake worship or further. Many cultures have legends of heroes destroying serpents, and human hatred of serpeants goes back far far beyond Christianity. But the producers ignore this and jsut goe after Christians with a definate hatred.
They have no proof or history to present, just simply their ideas and beliefs, which untested must be true because they believe them.
Before you buy or watch this, do yourself a favor and light yourself on fire isntead. Lighting yourself on fire would be more entertaining and less painful than watching this trash.
Should not even recieve one star.
I was particularly intrigued by the short section which connected Ian Fleming to snake-worship, but again, there didn't seem to be any conclusion.
As to "Biggest Religious Cover Up in History," I think that's all hype. But certainly Gardiner has done us a favor by pointing out the various snake iconography in religious works, which may not get much attention otherwise.
