“HIDDEN HISTORY OF THE SKULL AND CROSSBONES” #WeirdDarkness Whenever we see a pirate ship on television, cinema or in comic books we also see an extremely ancient symbol - the skull and crossbones. This however, was not a symbol of death – at least not in the beginning - but instead it profoundly symbolized life in so many aspects. Many researchers of Templar and Masonic history have pointed out the links between this symbol and the one used by the Knights Templar on their ships. Sow how did this enigmatic image of the skull and crossbones become deeply entrenched in the minds of millions around the world as the symbol of piracy, death and even poison? Author Philip Gardiner gives us the history of the skull and crossbones.   If you like what you hear, please share a link to this post on your social media, tell your friends about the podcast, and please leave a rating and review in Apple Podcasts; I might read your review here in a future episode!   SUPPORT THE PODCAST... *Advertise your product/service on Weird Darkness; visit http://www.bgadgroup.com or call 770-874-3200.* VISIT OUR SPONSORS: http://www.WeirdDarkness.com/sponsors WEIRD DARKNESS STORE: http://www.WeirdDarkness.com/store AUDIOBOOKS NARRATED BY DARREN: http://www.WeirdDarkness.com/audiobooks BECOME A PATRON at http://www.patreon.com/marlarhouse    STORY CREDITS AND/OR SOURCES… “Hidden History Of The Skull and Crossbones” by Philip Gardiner: http://www.ancientpages.com/2018/08/06/hidden-history-of-skull-and-crossbones-the-untold-story-of-the-templar-and-their-connection-to-the-shining-ones/ WEIRD DARKNESS MUSIC PROVIDED BY Midnight Syndicate http://amzn.to/2BYCoXZ and Shadow’s Symphony http://www.facebook.com/shadowssymphony/ - all music used with permission.
