" Baphomet, tapï¿½nak ï¿½ï¿½valyeleri ve onlarï¿½ izleyen bï¿½tï¿½n gizli ï¿½rgï¿½tlerin tapï¿½ndï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ tanrï¿½ydï¿½ ve kara bï¿½yï¿½de kï¿½tï¿½lï¿½klerin kaynaï¿½ï¿½ ve yaratï¿½cï¿½sï¿½ydï¿½; Sabbath cadï¿½larï¿½nï¿½n satanik keï¿½isiydi ve Aleister Crowley tarafï¿½ndan koyulan bir isimdi." ( Peter Underwood tarafï¿½ndan yazï¿½lan "Bï¿½yï¿½ ve Doï¿½aï¿½stï¿½" sï¿½zlï¿½ï¿½ï¿½)

1307 yï¿½lï¿½nda Fransa kralï¿½ Philip'in emriyle tapï¿½nak ï¿½ï¿½valyeleri tutuklanmï¿½ï¿½ ve sorguya ï¿½ekilmiï¿½lerdi. Bu sorgu sï¿½rasï¿½nda tarikat ï¿½yelerinin ï¿½eytan Baphomet isimli bï¿½yï¿½k bir putun ï¿½nï¿½nde tapï¿½ndï¿½klarï¿½ ve birtakï¿½m ritï¿½eller yaptï¿½klarï¿½ ortaya ï¿½ï¿½kmï¿½ï¿½tï¿½. (Harun Yahya, Yeni Masonik Dï¿½zen)
ï¿½fadeler ilginï¿½ti: Tapï¿½nakï¿½ï¿½larï¿½n ï¿½oï¿½u, ï¿½sa'ya inanmayï¿½p, gerï¿½ek peygamber olarak gï¿½rmediklerini kabul ettiler. Anlattï¿½klarï¿½na gï¿½re, ï¿½rgï¿½te giriï¿½ tï¿½reni kapï¿½larï¿½ kilitli ve gizli bir odada yapï¿½lï¿½yordu. Sorgulanan Tapï¿½nakï¿½ï¿½lardan birisi, Guischard de Marzici, Hugh de Marhaud adlï¿½ bir Tapï¿½nakï¿½ï¿½'nï¿½n tarikata alï¿½nï¿½ï¿½ tï¿½reniyle ilgili ilginï¿½ ï¿½eyler anlatmï¿½ï¿½tï¿½. Buna gï¿½re, Marhaud, kï¿½ï¿½ï¿½k odaya alï¿½nmï¿½ï¿½tï¿½, ï¿½yle ki kimse iï¿½eride ne olduï¿½unu duyamï¿½yor ve gï¿½remiyordu. Bir sï¿½re sonra Marhaud odadan ï¿½ï¿½karï¿½lmï¿½ï¿½tï¿½; rengi sapsarï¿½ydï¿½... Tapï¿½nakï¿½ï¿½larï¿½n sorgusu sï¿½rasï¿½nda hemen hepsinin kabul ettiï¿½i ve kesinleï¿½en bir ï¿½ey var: Tapï¿½nakï¿½ï¿½larï¿½n tapï¿½ndï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ bir tï¿½r put. ï¿½oï¿½u Tapï¿½nakï¿½ï¿½ bu figï¿½rï¿½ gï¿½rdï¿½ï¿½ï¿½nï¿½ sï¿½ylemiï¿½tir. Bazï¿½larï¿½ bu figï¿½rï¿½n uzun bir sakal ve parlak gï¿½zlere sahip korkutucu bir insan baï¿½ï¿½ olduï¿½unu itiraf etmiï¿½, bazï¿½larï¿½ da bir kurukafa olduï¿½unu bildirmiï¿½tir... Bazï¿½ Tapï¿½nakï¿½ï¿½lar ise gizemli bir kedi figï¿½rï¿½nden sï¿½z etmiï¿½tir. Ortak gï¿½rï¿½ï¿½, bu figï¿½rï¿½n ï¿½eytanï¿½ temsil ettiï¿½i yï¿½nï¿½ndedir. (Lewis Spence, The Encyclopedia of the Occult: A Compendium of Information on; The Occult Sciences, Occult Personalities, Psychic Science, Magic, Spiritism and Mysticism, London: Bracken Books, 1988, s. 406 -407.)
Tapï¿½nak ï¿½ï¿½valyelerinin taptï¿½klarï¿½ Baphomet isimli ï¿½eytan, o tarihten bugï¿½ne kadar ï¿½eytana tapmanï¿½n sembolï¿½ haline geldi. Baphomet ile ilgili en ayrï¿½ntï¿½lï¿½ bilgi ise gï¿½nï¿½mï¿½ze 19. yï¿½zyï¿½lï¿½n ï¿½nemli okï¿½list (bï¿½yï¿½cï¿½lï¿½k) ve kabbalistlerinden olan Eliphas Levi'den gelmiï¿½tir. Levi, Baphomet ile ilgili yaptï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ ï¿½izim ve tasvirlerde onu genelde iki suratlï¿½, insan vï¿½cudunun ï¿½stï¿½nde bir keï¿½i kafasï¿½yla ve kanatlarla gï¿½stermiï¿½tir. Baphomet'in vï¿½cudunun ï¿½st kï¿½smï¿½ bir kadï¿½na, altï¿½ ise bir erkeï¿½e aittir. Figï¿½rï¿½n ï¿½ift cinsiyetli olmasï¿½ homoseksï¿½elliï¿½i kabul gï¿½rï¿½r hale getirmek iï¿½in kullanï¿½lmï¿½ï¿½tï¿½.
Eliphas Levi; Baphomet'in Arkasï¿½ndaki Kabalist
Eliphas Levi 1810 yï¿½lï¿½nda Fransa'da doï¿½du. Okula gittiï¿½i yï¿½llarda rahiplik eï¿½itimi almaya karar verdi. Fakat daha sonralarï¿½ okï¿½list olabilmek amacï¿½yla rahiplik mesleï¿½ini bï¿½raktï¿½. Ortaya attï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ ve Kilise tarafï¿½ndan gï¿½nahkarlï¿½kla suï¿½landï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ konulardan bir tanesi de Katolik Kilisesi'ne karï¿½ï¿½ doktrinler vaazï¿½ydï¿½. Hayatï¿½ boyunca gizemli konularla ve Kabala ile ilgilendi. Bï¿½yï¿½ ve Kabala ï¿½zerine birï¿½ok kitabï¿½ olmasï¿½na raï¿½men, Levi'nin en ï¿½ok bilinen ï¿½alï¿½ï¿½masï¿½ Tapï¿½nak ï¿½ï¿½valyelerinin taptï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ ï¿½eytan Baphomet'tir.
Occult Conspiracy kitabï¿½nï¿½n yazarï¿½ Michael Howard'a gï¿½re Levi, birï¿½ok kitabï¿½nda kullandï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ Baphomet figï¿½rï¿½nï¿½ Saint Bris le Vineux'daki Tapï¿½nak binasï¿½nda gï¿½rdï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ canavar ï¿½eklindeki ï¿½eï¿½meden (Gargoyle) esinlenerek yapmï¿½ï¿½tï¿½r. Michael Howard kitabï¿½nda Baphomet'i ï¿½u ï¿½ekilde tarif ediyordu;
"Gargoyle sakal ve boynuzlarla birlikte kadï¿½n gï¿½ï¿½ï¿½sleri, kanatlar ve yarï¿½k ayaklï¿½ bir ï¿½ekildeydi. Keltlerin geyik tanrï¿½sï¿½nï¿½ anï¿½msatï¿½r ï¿½ekilde baï¿½daï¿½ kurmuï¿½ olarak oturuyordu."
ï¿½ok fazla bilinen bir konu olmamasï¿½na raï¿½men, Eliphas Levi, ï¿½eytanï¿½n sembolï¿½ olarak Baphomet'i ters ï¿½evrilmiï¿½ pentagramï¿½n iï¿½inde simgeleyen ilk kiï¿½iydi. Nesta Webster, Eliphas Levi'nin sadece Tapï¿½nakï¿½ï¿½larï¿½n Baphomet'e tapmadï¿½klarï¿½nï¿½, ama aynï¿½ zamanda onlarï¿½ izleyen bï¿½tï¿½n gizli ï¿½rgï¿½tlerin de ï¿½yle yaptï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ inancï¿½nda olduï¿½unu Secret Societies and Subversive Movements isimli eserinde ï¿½u ï¿½ekilde aï¿½ï¿½klamï¿½ï¿½tï¿½;
"Kabala'nï¿½n bilgisini tanï¿½mlayalï¿½m... ve Tapï¿½nakï¿½ï¿½lara zulmeden, bï¿½yï¿½cï¿½leri yakan ve Masonlarï¿½ aforoz eden Kilise'nin bï¿½yï¿½k zaferi iï¿½in, yï¿½ksek sesle sï¿½yleyelim; Okï¿½lt bilimleri baï¿½latanlar, bu korkunï¿½ sembole (Sabatik keï¿½iyi) her zaman taptï¿½lar ve tapacaklar... Evet, derin bilgimizle, Tapï¿½naï¿½ï¿½n bï¿½yï¿½k ï¿½stadlarï¿½ Baphomet'e taptï¿½lar."
Ayrï¿½ca Levi, Baphomet kelimesinin ters ï¿½evrilmesiyle elde edilecek Latince kï¿½saltï¿½lmï¿½ï¿½ kelimenin bï¿½yï¿½k anlam iï¿½erdiï¿½ine inanï¿½yordu: TEM OHP AB. "Templi omnivm hominum pacis abbas" Yani: Bï¿½tï¿½n ï¿½nsanlï¿½ï¿½ï¿½n Barï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ Tapï¿½naï¿½ï¿½nï¿½n Babasï¿½. Bununla Levi, Tapï¿½nakï¿½ï¿½lara ve tahrif ettikleri Sï¿½leyman tapï¿½naï¿½ï¿½nï¿½ iï¿½aret ediyordu.
Levi ve Pentagram Baï¿½lantï¿½sï¿½
Pentagram ilk defa M.ï¿½. 3500'da eski Mezopotamya'da kullanï¿½lmï¿½ï¿½tï¿½r. Yahudilere gï¿½re pentagram Torah'la baï¿½lantï¿½lï¿½dï¿½r. Ortaï¿½aï¿½'da dï¿½z pentagram yazï¿½ sembolize ederken, ters ï¿½evrilmiï¿½ olanï¿½ kï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ simgeliyordu. Levi pentagramï¿½ iki ï¿½ekilde sembolize etmiï¿½ti. Birincisi mikrokozmik adam olan insanï¿½ ve dï¿½rt elementi, ikincisi ise ï¿½eytanï¿½ simgeliyordu. Levi'den sonra Baphomet, 1966 yï¿½lï¿½nda Anton Szandor La Vey'in ï¿½ncï¿½lï¿½ï¿½ï¿½nde ï¿½eytan Kilisesi'nin resmi sembolï¿½ oldu. Aynï¿½ sembol gï¿½nï¿½mï¿½z falcï¿½lï¿½ï¿½ï¿½nï¿½n en yaygï¿½n yï¿½ntemi olarak kullanï¿½lan Tarot'ta da kullanï¿½lmaktadï¿½r. Baphomet Tarot'un ï¿½eytan figï¿½rï¿½dï¿½r.
ï¿½eytan bï¿½tï¿½n insanlarï¿½ saptï¿½rmak iï¿½in mï¿½cadele etmektedir. Bu mï¿½cadele ilk insan olan Hz Adem'den baï¿½lamï¿½ï¿½ insanlï¿½ï¿½ï¿½n sonu olan kï¿½yamet gï¿½nï¿½ne kadar devam edecektir. ï¿½eytan, insanlarï¿½ doï¿½ru yoldan saptï¿½rmak iï¿½in hileli dï¿½zenler kuracak, kendisine tapï¿½nï¿½lmasï¿½ iï¿½in doï¿½ru yollarï¿½nï¿½n ï¿½zerine oturacaktï¿½r. Allah bir ayette ï¿½eytanï¿½n yoluna uyanlarï¿½n hï¿½srana uï¿½rayacaklarï¿½nï¿½ ï¿½ï¿½yle haber vermektedir:
"Onlarï¿½ -ne olursa olsun- ï¿½aï¿½ï¿½rtï¿½p-saptï¿½racaï¿½ï¿½m, en olmadï¿½k kuruntulara dï¿½ï¿½ï¿½receï¿½im ve onlara kesin olarak davarlarï¿½n kulaklarï¿½nï¿½ kesmelerini emredeceï¿½im ve Allah'ï¿½n yarattï¿½klarï¿½nï¿½ deï¿½iï¿½tirmelerini emredeceï¿½im." Kim Allah'ï¿½ bï¿½rakï¿½p da ï¿½eytanï¿½ dost (veli) edinirse, kuï¿½kusuz o, apaï¿½ï¿½k bir hï¿½srana uï¿½ramï¿½ï¿½tï¿½r." (Nisa Suresi, 119)

ï¿½zgï¿½rlï¿½k, hemen hemen her
toplum ve ideolojiden kiï¿½inin hemfikir olduï¿½u ve savunduï¿½u bir kavramdï¿½r.
ï¿½nsanlï¿½k tarihindeki ï¿½atï¿½ï¿½malarï¿½n, savaï¿½larï¿½n ï¿½oï¿½undaki amaï¿½, ï¿½zgï¿½rlï¿½ï¿½ï¿½
kazanmak olmuï¿½tur.
Batï¿½ dï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ncesinin ï¿½zgï¿½rlï¿½ï¿½e verdiï¿½i anlamï¿½ ï¿½ï¿½yle ï¿½zetleyebiliriz:
ï¿½zgï¿½rlï¿½k, insana, diï¿½er insanlar (toplum) ya da devlet -veya baï¿½ka
herhangi bir kurum- tarafï¿½ndan hiï¿½bir kï¿½sï¿½tlama ve baskï¿½ yapï¿½lmamasï¿½dï¿½r.Bugï¿½n
Batï¿½ toplumlarï¿½nï¿½n iï¿½inde bulunduklarï¿½ toplumsal yapï¿½, modern Batï¿½
felsefesi tarafï¿½ndan tarifi yapï¿½lan "ï¿½zgï¿½rlï¿½k" kavramï¿½nï¿½n,
insanï¿½n kurtuluï¿½unu saï¿½lamadï¿½ï¿½ï¿½nï¿½ gï¿½stermektedir.

Okullarda, bilimsel kaynaklarda ve bir kï¿½sï¿½m medyada, teori ispatlanmï¿½ï¿½
bir gerï¿½ek gibi sunulmakta, pek ï¿½ok insan da bu nedenle evrimi hiï¿½
sorgulamadan kabul etmektedir. Oysa her geï¿½en gï¿½n geliï¿½en, paleoantropoloji,
antropoloji ve mikrobiyoloji gibi bilim dallarï¿½, sï¿½zï¿½nï¿½ ettiï¿½imiz
yaygï¿½n inanï¿½ï¿½ï¿½n aksine, evrim teorisini sï¿½rekli yalanlamaktadï¿½rlar.
Evrimi ispatlamak iï¿½in 150 yï¿½ldï¿½r aralï¿½ksï¿½z sï¿½rdï¿½rï¿½len ï¿½alï¿½ï¿½malar,
teoriyi ï¿½ï¿½rï¿½tmekten baï¿½ka bir sonuca varamamï¿½ï¿½lardï¿½r.
Bu gerï¿½eï¿½e raï¿½men, evrim teorisinin bu denli yaygï¿½n bir biï¿½imde
savunulmasï¿½ ve insanlara empoze edilmesinin tek nedeni ise, teorinin
ideolojik yï¿½nï¿½dï¿½r.
