Story About Bull Worship
There are many stories about the origin of bull worship. According to some, the bulls were worshiped by the people of Egypt as a sign of prosperity.
In the story, a calf named Taurus was killed by a boar and his brother Ambrosius hunted them and killed them both and succeeded in driving the wild bulls into Egypt.
Amphibia & Bull Worship
Later on, during Alexander the Great’s rule in Alexander’s native Amphibia, bulls worship started.
The story goes that when the legendary hero, Hyppolyta, discovered that the anointing water had divine powers for Hyppolyta, he used it to help his people, and the bulls get rid of a demon. He sacrificed his life for them and then the bulls, together with the wild boars, gave him a sacred funeral.
The bulls were also believed to have been responsible for bringing light to the world. They are said to have brought grain to the people and even destroyed the darkness.
Bacchus was the god of wine
Festivities and believed to have killed a bull, hence, his name. Bacchus was the god of wine and festivities and was often seen dressed in the purple robe of an old Bacchus who was the chief priest of the Aesculapius.
Bacchus is also believed to be the god of wine when he dances to music in the chariot of Aesculapius. Bacchus is also the god of revelries and is often represented drinking and dancing in the Nemean Wild Woman, who is seated upon a large horned wheel.
He is sometimes also dressed in a similar purple robe, sometimes covered with jewels. Another version of the Myth of Bacchus is that he is the son of Oceanus and Themis and was the original creator of the world.
Dionysus is the god of fun and music, so this makes sense. But there is another version of the Myth of Bacchus.
His image is that of a bull and is often represented by a gnome in the likeness of a bull, wearing a thong. The thong is a symbol of power and authority for boys, possibly to represent the initiation into male puberty.
Many Christians believe that this is why we see many young men running to join fratricidal groups and running away from their families when they get too big.
Modern Times Bull Worship
In modern times bulls, worship has become one of the most important symbols of masculinity in the world, especially in the United States, where there are many hunting clubs and biker groups that wear patches on their clothes identify them as members of a motorcycle club.
Groups like the Skinhead Underground even have their own bulls that are tattooed and identified as a symbol of their particular group.
The presence of such a powerful symbol in one’s society has had a powerful effect on how people think, feel, and act.
For instance, many school students believe that being part of a biker gang means that one is tough because many bikers have serious tattoos and leather clothing.
