NAME: Mammon. The Golden Calf.
SYMBOLS: a golden calf. $ (also signs for the Pound, Yen, Mark etc...)
USUAL IMAGE: Mostly bovine, male calfs and Bulls.
HOLY BOOKS: If there ever were any in the past they have been destroyed
however a good god is hard to put down, so that he can be
found in the Wallstreet Journal, The Financial Times,
Sears & Robuck catalog, Wealth of Nations, Forbes.
HOLY DAYS: Main one use to take place between Dec. 12 to Dec. 25, but
his followers have stretched this out so that the images,
icons, and chanting of their high holy day now starts
around Nov. first.
UNHOLYDAY: One of the rare one's that has one of these, takes place (at
least in the U.S. so this one can be thought of as sort of
like Thankgiveing,an American based (un)holiday) on April 15
PLACES OF WORSHIP: the market place, Malls, Banks, the `pits' on Wall-
street and in like centers of worship. Also like few other
uptodate deities Mammon has gone vidio and has a televised
worship place, and just like some others are served by the
700 club or Mtv, he is served on the religious channel known
as the Home Shoping Network.
MAJOR TABOOS: Don't get caught. Don't live home with out it. Giveing a
sucker an even break.
FORMS OF WORSHIP: BUYING!. spending. hording. dancing around a graven
image (as Golden calfs are hard to come by today, this has
mainly been replaced by such things as large boats, BMW's,
and other types of cars.
SYNODEITIES: Baal, Rockefeller, Nephthys, Trump, Scrooge McDuck.
DETAILS: Mammon is the all-american deity, though he is just as well
liked and worshiped the whole world over, an interesting bit
of synchronicity is the way that the bull image and related
images turn up to day, in the past a common foe of some bull
deities was a tiger, and as you go west this foe becomes a
bear. and on Wallstreet we still have bulls and bears, and the
new myths about the war between the bull (capitalism) and the
bear (communism) are well known to every one.
