You may want to check out this link detailing the Ancient Esoteric Agenda.  It offers much more on the Egyptian great works.  The great pyramid is not the only example.  The Temple of Karnak is quite compelling in its magical quality.  It is as awe inspiring as the cathedrals....and then some!




Ancient Knowledge


The symbolism that architecture is one of harmony and proportion.  The ancients did know the principles behind the golden number and pie...The temple at Luxor is a fine example of these theories....


Forbidden Knowledge of Luxor Temple in Ancient Egypt
Alchemy, cymatics and the science of spirit.
The temple was the teaching" A look at the ancient Egyptian temple as an interactive repository of Forbidden Knowledge. After more than 17 years onsite at Luxor Temple, the enigmatic mathematician philosopher and modern-day alchemist R.A. Schwaller de Lubics discovered a key that unlocks a timeless teaching encoded in stone.
Does Luxor temple conceal and ancient teaching about the metaphysical anatomy of man? West explores the controversial findings of Schwaller de Lubics and the biometric data he discovered hidden in this remarkable temple.
Forbidden knowledge, which is different from secret knowledge, is used to describe forbidden books or other information to which access is restricted or deprecated for political or religious reasons. Forbidden knowledge is commonly not secret, rather a society or various institutions will use repressive mechanisms to either completely prevent the publication of information they find objectionable or dangerous (censorship), or failing that, to try to reduce the public's trust in such information (propaganda). Public repression can create paradoxical situation where the proscribed information is generally common knowledge but publicly citing it is disallowed.

The spiritual house we call a church is above all intended to be reflection of heaven arrayed in signs and symbols. A church is intended to be a map of heaven and how to get there. The church building is also a metaphor in stone of a people’s own spiritual journey as we make our pilgrimage from isolated individuals, into community, to the presence of the Divine.
    This is the gate of heaven, the door of eternal life: it leads the traveller towards the stars. On entering, a person may penetrate the heavenly mountain, if he takes with him faith and hope as his companions. Here forgiveness may be sought, if the pilgrim enters with a devout heart, and on foot. Here also a sinner may shed his evil acts and with tears wash this sacred threshold. Then purged by tears of repentance and adorned with humility, he is worthy to enter the holy places of God. I believe that Jesus in his mercy forgives their sins, so that whoever enters sad will emerge more joyful. 
Alcuin of York AD C.735-804 
The Early Church House
Christian texts and archaeology show that Christians gathered in people’s houses. These houses were often the villas of the richer members of the Christian community. These church houses appear to have undergone significant renovations and additions to meet the needs of the Christian community. These facts shed some interesting light into a sometimes murky historical period in the early Church.
The Basilica Church
The second great watershed in the evolution of a church’s sacred space occurred when the Emperor Constantine issued a series of edicts and letters from AD 306-311 declaring toleration for all religions throughout the Empire. In the year AD 312 it was said that Constantine converted to Christianity and with his support the once persecuted church received enormous imperial grants of land and money.

Cathedrals and churches sure do incorporate some beautiful symbolism in its architecture. Here are some of the stranger ones out there:
A church that looks like a chicken? :chuckle:
Talk about upside down religion.. :wacko:
Remember the dick shaped church on google maps? :dry:
...and finally, the Church of the big bang theory...

Mysterious, Abandoned Indonesian Church Shaped like a Giant Chicken




Deep in the dense forests of Central Java, towering above the surrounding trees, lies an abandoned, crumbling church in the shape of a giant chicken with its beak open mid-squawk. Called Gereja Ayam (“Chicken Church”) by locals, this bizarre building attracts hundreds of travelers and photographers to the hills of Magelang, Indonesia each year.

The Mystery of the Cathedrals Revealed:
In 1996, a chance encounter between researchers in widely separate fields set in motion a train of events that led to the decoding of Fulcanelli’s message. The mystery was unveiled. An enigmatic cross in the churchyard of a small resort village in the Basses-Pyrenees emerged as a true monument to the end of time. The Cyclic Cross of Hendaye, designed to embody in symbolic code the date of Fulcanelli’s “double catastrophe,” also functioned as the loose thread in the tapestry of “official” history. The monument pointed to the mystery of the apocalypse, but its existence suggested another mystery, that of the initiates who had preserved the secret through the centuries.
The Underground Stream Surfaces:
And so, after three years of intensive research, the authors, Jay Weidner and Vincent Bridges, are ready to present their findings. What began as a book about an anonymous alchemist and the mysterious monument marking the double catastrophe has become, in its broadest scope, a rediscovery of the roots of the western esoteric tradition, including the underground stream of Gnostic Christianity.

Whereas some people in the 17th and 18th centuries had little education, they were certainly well grounded in the scriptures and the catechism. Village schools had been set up from the times of the Reformation, so there were many people from humble homes who could read and knew the scriptures. The emblems of mortality and immortality were seldom used after the 18th century,but many other forms of symbolism were the stock-in-trade of 19th century monumental masons.

Darth Vader at Washington National Cathedral
In 1986, Washington National Cathedral added a carved “grotesque” of Darth Vader to its northwest tower as part of a nationwide contest to complete the Cathedral. In the 30 years since, Lord Vader has kept a watchful eye over the dark north side of the Cathedral. As it turns out, he does a lot more than that. Discover Darth Vader, and so much more, at Washington National Cathedral.
