    What are your thoughts on the Great Seal being related to Christianity, and since Atheists are always saying we must remove Christianity, do you believe they will try to change even the Seal of the United States?

      From your link...

      Meaning of the Seal

      The red and white stripes of the
      shield “represent the several states... support-
      ing a [blue] Chief which unites the whole and
      represents Congress.” The colors are adopted
      from the American flag: “White signifies pu-
      rity and innocence, Red, hardiness & valour,
      and Blue, the colour of the Chief, signifies
      vigilance, perseverance & justice.” The shield,
      or escutcheon, is “born on the breast of an
      American Eagle without any other supporters
      to denote that the United States of America
      ought to rely on their own Virtue.”

      Still not seeing any Christian symbolism.  In fact a distinct lack thereof.

    It is an Occult symbol suggested by Henry Wallace, inspired by his guru, Nicholas Roerich!

        It is pretty widely available information for those that search?


        If you look at an American one-dollar bill, you will find a pyramid with an “eye” on top. The Great Pyramid is often associated with Freemasonry, and many of the American founding fathers were Freemasons. The symbol comes from the Great Seal of the United States designed in 1782 by Charles Thompson. In 1934 the Secretary of Agriculture Henry Wallace convinced Secretary of the Treasury Henry Morgenthau to place it on the dollar. It appeared in 1935. Morgenthau did not know at the time that Wallace made the suggestion at the behest of his guru Nicholas Roerich. To Roerich, the eye represented the gaze of mahatmas, or super-evolved beings that guide the affairs and spiritual evolution of humanity. Roerich (d 1947) and his wife Helena (d 1955) followed the Theosophy teachings of the colorful 19th century occultist, Helena P. Blavatsky (1831–1891).

        Roerich claimed to have a piece of the stone that is located in Mecca.

          It was Wallace and Roerich which had it place on the dollar bill.  Supposedly, a hooded figure had given it to Thomas Jefferson.

    It was definitely inspired by spiritualist and freemasonry symbolism. In some early versions the bird was a phoenix rather than an eagle.
