Some Icons of America Symbolise a Non-Christian Origin?
In 1957 (approved 1956) after being bombarded by Christian lobbyists the government of the US adopted the motto “In God we Trust” to be used on its monetary system (coins and notes). However, one can ask which God did they choose? This new motto went against everything the founding father legislation! Which was to have a division between Church and State.
If you were to ask most New Yorkers or most American about Liberté éclairant le monde: Liberty Enlightening the World, they most probably would not have the faintest notion of what you were saying! Yet, if you were to say the Statue of Liberty (dedicated in 1886) is the common name for Liberty Enlightening the World they would understand. (An American icon that nearly never happened owing to funding problems. It is thanks to 120,000 contributors.) However, tell them that the Statue of Liberty is the adoption of Deus Sol Invictus/Invincible Sun God. I am sure they would scorn and utter poppycock! You would have the Christians amongst them screaming the good ol’ US of A is a Christian country. Which is certainly not as the founding father made sure of that with article eleven (11) of the Treaty of Tripoli in 1796:
As the government of the United States of America is not in any sense founded on the Christian Religion, as it has in itself no character of enmity against the laws, religion or tranquility of Musselmen, and as the said States never have entered into any war or act of hostility against any Mehomitan nation, it is declared by the parties that no pretext arising from religious opinions shall ever produce an interruption of the harmony existing between the two countries. https://avalon.law.yale.edu/18th_century/bar1796t.asp Check out the file photo above, you will see:
Deus Sol Invictus is wearing a seven (7) sunray crown atop of head and wears a toga.
Liberty is wearing the same seven (7) sunray crown atop of head and wears a toga! The same Greek/Egyptian nose and eyes belong to both Sol and Liberty.
On the question of Invictus (unconquered), the Third Great Seal Committee of May 1782 of the US Great Seal obverse side had the motto Virtus Sola Invicta (Bravery Alone is Invincible). The reverse side had the motto “Deo Favente” – With God’s Favour (lit., God Favouring). Well, the committee threw the design out and the designer had to start over again. This time the committee chose the splayed Bold Eagle, which has changed over the years until 1904 when it became standardised. The reverse side of the Great Seal (also seen on Federal banknotes) maintained its pyramid shape and the Eye of Providence, but the motto was Changed to read—Annuit cœptis and Novus ordo seclorum. Novus ordo seclorum (meaning “new order of the ages”) can both be traced to lines of a (Pagan) prayer by the Roman poet Virgil (70 BCE-19BCE). Annuit cœptis comes from the Aeneid, Book IX, line 625, which reads, Iuppiter omnipotens, audacibus adnue coeptis. It is a prayer by Ascanius, the son of the hero of the story, Aeneas, which translates to, “Jupiter Almighty, favour [my] bold undertakings”, just before slaying an enemy warrior, Numanus.
