Using my apostolic authority, on this day i rank in concord Greek Orthodox Saint Mammes among the Erisian Saints. Now Mammes is twice a saint (in two religions), and this day is the 39th of Bureaucracy of the Erisian calendar and the 2nd of September of the Julian calendar, from now on it is twice the day of St. Mammes.

Commemorating the Life and Memory of Erisian and Greek Orthodox Mammes, twice canonized.

Mammes, a Cypriot hermit, lived by raising sheep, grazing goats and growing grapes. He did not pay any taxes.

When the soldiers led the violator to the viceroy, a huge lion ran out of the forest, escaping from the circus. The soldiers, frightened, fled, and Mammes with a single movement of his hand tamed the lion and ridden on him to the viceroy. The astonished Roman freed Mammes from all taxes and duties. Since then, this saint has been the patron saint of animals and tax evaders. Continue reading

physiognosia

Modern English uses word “science” in three different “scientific areas”, or “scientific disciplines”:

Natural science (from Latin “Naturalis scientia”,  which in Modern Greek “Φυσικές επιστήμες” or “φυσιογνωσία” – “physikes epistimes” or “physiognosia”) – natural sciences, uses scientific method in the cognition process (physics, chemistry, geology, biology, anatomy, etc)

Social science (Greek “Κοινωνικές επιστήμες” – “Canonikes epistimes”) – is a category of academic disciplines, that are not guided by the scientific method, but actively use formal sciences to substantiate the advantages of various schools of these disciplines, i would say that these are group interpretations, авторитеты (law, economics, psychology , philology, rhetoric, sociology, history, political science, pedagogy, cultural studies, anthropology) Continue reading

6000 years of divine creation were discovered less than 200 years ago

There is an interesting fact that the oldest reliably dated full Old Testament was discovered less than 200 years ago. Christian versions of the scripture was translated from it, and most of the modern Jews pray according to this version of Tanakh. This is the so-called “Leningrad Codex“. It is also interesting that it was found in Odessa (by the intriguing character who was repeatedly accused of making fakes while he still alive). Considering that many of the the Dead Sea Scrolls were found fakes, the Odessa-Leningrad Codex is the cornerstone of the millennial history of Judaism and Christianity.
