STARS ARE SYMBOLS TOO, DON’T YOU KNOW?
The seven-pointed star seen on the cover (and inside) of Mary Baker Eddy’s book Christ and Christmas is a symbol for divine Science; it is also symbolic of the Morning Star that Jesus promised to us in Revelation 22:16: “I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.”
It would be ridiculous, however, for Christian Scientists to tell the whole world that they can no longer use a seven-pointed star in their work or in their adds because it is copyrighted and belongs totally to the Christian Science Publishing Society. And it is just as ridiculous if those who did use the seven-pointed star were to be called anti-Christian Scientists by politicians because of it. Likewise, a six-pointed star is not copyrighted or owned by the nation of Israel, or the Hebrew religion.
Recently, however, H. C. claimed that D. T. is anti-Semitic because he had a red six-pointed star on some add or some Tweet (I am not exactly sure on this particular point). Does H. C. know how ridiculous she is by making this claim? First off, the Hebrews, or Jews, do not hold copyright upon stars with six points on them. Logic bids us to ask, how does one’s use of a six-pointed star even mean that you are anti-Semitic? Drawing the conclusion that someone using a six-pointed star is anti-Semitic is like dictating that you no longer are allowed to dress up like an American Native Indian or a Mexican Mariachi guitar player on Halloween! But that’s exactly what some politically correct people have done. To say that D. T. is anti-Semitic because he used a six-pointed star is like calling Sheriffs anti-Semitic because their badges have six points on them! And I do not see anyone doing that!
Further more, the star that D. T. used happened to be completely and totally red. While the six-pointed star on Israel’s flag is made up of blue lines, placed on a field of white. The Star of David (or Solomon’s Seal), as it is often called, is actually a star made up of two triangles.
Does H. C. even understand what the star on the Israelite flag means? Why, D. T. should be commended for using a six-pointed star because it symbolizes the union of male and female as one (at least with the Hebrew’s Star of David). The blade pyramid represents Judah (male).
The cup pyramid represents Israel (female).
The blade and cup united represents the equality of sexes, where male and female are one, “the unity of male and female as no longer two wedded individuals, but as two individual natures in one; and this compounded spiritual individuality reflects God as Father-Mother, not as a corporeal being. In this divinely united spiritual consciousness, there is no impediment to eternal bliss, — to the perfectibility of God’s creation.” (SCIENCE AND HEALTH WITH KEY TO THE SCRIPTURES; by Mary Baker Eddy, p. 577:5-11)
P.S. – After writing this post I heard more about the red star. It turns out that behind it was a bunch of money. Yet, this still does not mean that the picture had anything to do with the Star of David. It was only painted that way to the public as a political attack. I only saw the picture for a split second on the news, to be honest, I did not even notice the money.
I would like to add a picture of the Isotropic Vector Matrix shot spoken of in the comment below. The center hub is based upon the number 13 (12 vector spokes and 1 vector curled unto itself to infinity – as it was explained on the video).
