The helical structure ofrepparttar double helix representation ofrepparttar 149488 human gene which you see inrepparttar 149489 caduceus was attuned to by shamans and sorcerers who augmented their studies withrepparttar 149490 many Devoted Ones you read about inrepparttar 149491 Bible. These are actually people who end up being sacrificed afterrepparttar 149492 sexual and other ritual acts and harvesting is complete. There was a never-ending supply of Devoted Ones in Biblical times asrepparttar 149493 wars and other Ďchosen oneí ideologies guaranteed perpetual strife. Count Dracul himself was a useful minion ofrepparttar 149494 Catholic military Orders. He put his Moslem enemy on stakes byrepparttar 149495 thousands. He also is rumored to have saltedrepparttar 149496 wells and they blamed Jews or Khazars for this.

I am certain that there is a way to transfer information in genes. The Director ofrepparttar 149497 Human Genome Project recently said we have a history book in our genes. The blood a Nos Feratu gives to his close disciples is howrepparttar 149498 quick transfer of knowledge occurs even inrepparttar 149499 movie. Nero was wrong to call Christians byrepparttar 149500 term 'cannibal' but The Last Supper and communion are part of why he did. When Van Helsing putsrepparttar 149501 wafer on Mina's (Wynona Ryder) forehead atrepparttar 149502 point where she is trying to seduce him I think this isrepparttar 149503 wafer you see inrepparttar 149504 communion ritual. It representsrepparttar 149505 body of Christ.

10 Things To Do Before Buying A Novel

Written by Jill Brennan

Continued from page 1

6. Look atrepparttar size ofrepparttar 149487 book. I know this isnít something forrepparttar 149488 purists but if you donít get time to read many novels, donít launch back in with a 700 page tome or it will probably take you all year and then youíll be frustrated and annoyed at wasting time and money on something you havenít enjoyed.

7. The next step is crucial. Readrepparttar 149489 opening Ė does it get you in straight off? Novels have a bit more time to seduce you than a short story but not much these days. A good opening is like someone placing a thread around your finger and gently tugging on it. Theyíve got you but can they keep you?

8. Hasrepparttar 149490 author mentioned 10 characters and 5 different place names inrepparttar 149491 first 3 paragraphs? You want to be captivated not confused, remember? If your main reading time is before you drop off to sleep, books that have lots of characters and places or even a family tree atrepparttar 149492 beginning are a warning that it gets complicated and you need to keep track of who is who and what theyíre up to.

9. Are there lots of long sentences or are they short and sharp? Lots of short sentences usually mean action and pace. Something. Is happening. Right now. Usually itís best to go for a story with a combination of both Ė one that suits your preferred action/background information mix.

10. If you still thinkrepparttar 149493 book in your hands is worthy, randomly flip openrepparttar 149494 book in 5 places and see whether it is densely packed with text. Is there dialogue at each page you stop? No dialogue usually means that a book is more descriptive rather than direct scenes. If you want a compelling read then go for something with a fair amount of dialogue; if you donít mind a slower pace then bits of dialogue here and there is probably enough to keep you going.

If it all stacks up, buy it and enjoy. Just one more tip though. If it doesnít captivate you inrepparttar 149495 first 100 pages and you find reading it a chore, give it up. Donít keep persisting just because you donít like leaving things unfinished. The book wonít feel hurt if you donít finish it. Andrepparttar 149496 author will never know.
