The Parthenon Code: Mankind's History in Marble by Robert Bowie Johnson

The Parthenon Code deciphers a genuine ancient artists’ code revealing that Greek myth/art tells the same story as the early chapters of Genesis. Only the viewpoint is different—the Greeks believed that the serpent enlightened, rather than deluded, the first couple in paradise.

Rejecting the Creator God of Noah in favor of “man as the measure of all things,” Greek myth/art celebrated the re-emergence of the way of Kain (Cain) after the Flood, and the rebirth of the serpent-friendly Eve, whom the Greeks worshipped as Athena. The Greeks called Noah Nereus, the “Wet One,” and dated the beginning of their contrary religious outlook from his latter years, depicting the patriarch’s image on many vases, seventeen of which appear in the book.

This readable book helps explain the rationale behind questionable religious practices in our present confused world. I've read it several times, and it is a great reference. Added bonus: I may be able to finish reading the Iliad now!

After reading THE PARTHENON CODE, I understand Greek myth/art. It was meant to be understood. What a marvelous revelation! The book presents a GENUINE ancient artists' code which reveals the true history of humanity. Ancient Greek artists were brilliant. It's today's classicists and mythologists who, I regret to say, are stupid.

Ridiculous if considered as a scholarly work. It is instead the height of Christian apologetics. Avoid this mind cluttering ramble.

This is the only book needed to understand what greek mythology actually is. Our past revealed.
