Believe not because some old manuscripts are produced, believe not because it is
your national belief, believe not because you have been made to believe from your
childhood, but reason truth out, and after you have analyzed it, then if you find it will

“Drawing together an amazing amount of research, Acharya S…demolishes the facade of Christianity,
It is a grave question whether the ecclesiastical system and movement known as Christianity has any right to its name. Far from being the cult that brought in a true Christ-worship for the first time in ‘heathen darkness’ it was indeed – after the third century – the one system that destroyed such a true worship. Ancient cults bent all effort upon the cultivation within man. This is the nucleus of the only true Christianity. – Alvin Boyd Kuhn. ”Who is this King of Glory”
The mind media of religious belief systems is incredibly diverse’, as is the use of religion to augment political power, for once covertly supplanted, idealism represents the very pinnacle of the political science of mass mind control, toward the garnering of power.
Interestingly, if one examines closely, much of religious dogmas are but ‘splintered variations of an ancient theme’, for a once universal consciousness of knowledge placed our source of life and physical being in divinity, the ‘spark of life’ inherent in every human being which through choice could be developed by experience, once one awakened to oneself,.
This ‘original’ knowledge was likely customarily passed down in the oral tradition as an inheritance, from adult to child.
This ancient theme of beginnings’ or ‘records’ were possibly at some point ‘envisioned’ and recorded via star myths, essentially ‘future-proofed’, that the importance of this spiritual legacy and the knowledge of the ”temporary” and temporal state of physical being, might not be ‘lost’ to the so called human intellect or powers of reason in a ”climate of amnesia”, but retained, and remembered.
This epoch of ancient wisdom, I believe, once encircled this globe’s consciousness and united ‘all peoples’ with an integrity based in hope and purposeful existence, an awareness of spirit in harmony with the knowledge that the physical – material is of a transitory means, this temporary biological life is the ‘outward’ expression of wisdom displayed throughout all nature’s inner workings,, as such all is guided, spun and woven by ‘intelligence’.
The ”interconnected” tapestry of a once culturally rich global civilization is still evident in sites and places today, both to the dry continents above, and cities submerged below the waters, on ocean seafloors spread worldwide. Before such cataclysm’s this wisdom and knowledge was described as golden age’s of exuberance and celebration, era’s that declared universal understanding of true purpose.
The works of Acharya S do not necessarily deal with the details of myth/metaphor connections here, nor their underling truths, observations, whether pertaining to scientific or spiritual meanings, but rather lays focus on the “essential reveal” of the stunning magnitude of deceitful manipulation’s, omission’s and interpolations of scriptures designed to mislead, refinements made over many centuries, geared toward control of the consciousness of the masses.
From the original ‘world mythos’ or metaphors was contrived a ‘patent of type’ thus revised as literal characters and historical narratives ‘woven’ into the so called ‘Jesus greatest story ever sold/told. Ultimately the ensuing ‘rampage’ on intellectual freedom imposed a tyrannical authority over the conscious domain of mind, this indoctrination necessitated the obliteration of records and ‘literature’ including art, and architecture, much was defaced or torn down, all that was deemed pertaining to the original paradigm.
Along with conspired acts of barbarism that included whole cultures wiped out by ‘ethnic cleansing’ – execution. The mandate was eradication of the old ways and beliefs, refusal to comply was met with torture and unfettered acts of violence, inquisitors were horrifically cruel, and thorough, a reputation which also psychologically served the purpose of instilling a consciousness of terror among the masses.
Essentially such ‘crusades’ and missions of mental slavery to capture alive ”hearts and minds” must include ”all” and ”any” past or present ‘Machiavellian Campaigns’ that seek conquest in the mental domain of any individual or group consciousness.
For what is the mental ‘domain’ if not the intellectual property of an individual? an individual consciousness is as ‘unique’ as the DNA code we each possess, this code ‘defines’ an individual as ‘unique’, further, DNA extends beyond basic physical functions of upkeep and repair,.
On display throughout ‘all’ created works are clear ‘hallmarks that exhibit’ a ‘source intelligence’ that has the ability to ‘envision’ and design according to an adapting environment, it is this gift to foresee or ‘adapt’ with creative purpose that dignifies every ”individual” thus nurturing the human capacity for intellectual advancement, to form decision making skills, and accrue experiences and wisdom through choice. To create, design and envision are cosmic blueprints of freewill ‘and’ creative freedom, the right to free-thought, is the individual’s intellectual property.
To conscientiously ‘choose’ has however been denied the human race for millennia and substituted with anarchic warmongering, and endless divisions under the oligarchic guise of ‘suing for peace’ suchlike seeds of poison and propaganda thrive under cover of violent physical war, either way it is a war on consciousness that is covertly prioritized, ‘mind control’ indeed, it continues, as history will show.
That is to say ‘true history’ which has little to do with the historical narrative taught on the face of this planet, the prevalence of lies and diversion in defense of mainstream historicity presently serves only as a mocking reminder that underlines the despicable failure of man, to ”guide even his own steps” – let alone those of his neighbors – Maccy
Christianity was not created by a god who came to Earth 2,000 years ago but is a
patchwork quilt of ancient motifs found in many parts of the world eons before the
Christian era and spread mainly through fraud, fanaticism and force, as a
deliberately contrived ideology.
Regarding the compilation of the Bible and the creation of Christianity, Roberts
Every rational person might have known that the writings of the New Testament were
the works of a man or a school of men who sought to blend such portions of the
preceding creeds, doctrines, ceremonies, practices and religious formulas into a
single religion, that would serve to harmonize and united mankind in one common
effort to advance the welfare of all. . . . The religious systems of China, India, Persia,
Egypt, Greece, Rome, Palestine, and even the Druidical system of Northern and
Western Europe, were largely drawn from to make up the Eclectic system of religion .
Shocking as it may seem to the general populace, the most enduring and profound controversy in the subject of Christianity is whether or not a person named Jesus Christ ever really existed!
“Jesus is a mythical figure in the tradition of pagan mythology and almost nothing in all of ancient literature would lead one to believe otherwise. Anyone wanting to believe Jesus lived and walked as a real live human being must do so despite the evidence, not because of it.”
–C. Dennis McKinsey, The Encyclopedia of Biblical Errancy
“The gospel story is an artificial, non-historical work. It has been fabricated from source materials that can be identified and traced to their incorporation into the gospels. There is not a particle of hard evidence that ‘Jesus of Nazareth’ ever existed.
–Harold Leidner, The Fabrication of the Christ Myth
Contrary to popular belief, there was no single man at the genesis of Christianity but many characters rolled into one, the majority of whom were personifications of the ubiquitous solar myth, whose exploits were well known, as reflected by such popular deities as Mithra, Heracles/Hercules, Dionysus and many others throughout the Roman Empire and beyond.
The story of Jesus as portrayed in the Gospels is revealed to be nearly identical in certain details to that of the earlier savior-gods Krishna and Horus, et al., who for millennia preceding Christianity held great favor with the people in much the same way as Jesus does today.
In addition, a favorite Roman adage was, “The common people like to be
deceived—deceived let them be. Thus, we see that the Romans were not
mindlessly falling down to worship the Jesus character as an incarnation of God
when they adopted the nascent religion, which they then changed for centuries to
suit their own interests.
The Romans at that time were the worst of idolaters; but knowing well the
power of state religion, strove to make from their original sun worship a religion
which should embody Trinity; and so from the story of Buddha and Osiris, Isis and
Horus, and the zodiacal signs, clothed the stories in new garments, and personified
the sun into a living man, and the moon into a virgin mother, and the cross as the
life-saving symbol, and then forced the slaves of Rome by sword and wild beast, by
inquisition and torture and auto-da-fe, to acknowledge as truth that which their
souls abhorred; forcing them to teach this to their children, established that
abomination, the confessional, making spies and traitors in every household till,
sinking deeper and deeper in despair and forced ignorance, generation after
generation dared no longer even to think their soul was their own and given by God,
but were led to believe that God the Father damned them from the beginning and
delivered them over to the devil, to be saved (no matter how abominable their
crimes) by this man called the Son of God . . . In fact, the whole story is
incomprehensible; and as no one could explain it, the priests when questioned at
once forbid such sacrilege as questions; and “It is a mystery” sufficed to stay all
And Wheless says:
Thus was the ultimate merger and total identity of Paganism with “the new Paganism
called Christianity” finally established by law and Imperial policy of “One State and
One Religion,” to which conformity was enforced by laws of confiscation and death;
all the other religions of the Empire were fused by fire and sword into a bastard
It was unquestionably these selfsame Roman authorities who put into the mouth
of the fictitious Paul the exhortations that Christians obey the authorities “in
everything.” The honor that he exhorts them to give “to whom honor is due” is, of
course, due to the Emperor, as are the taxes Paul also tells his followers to hand over.
Furthermore, Christ himself is made to exhort his followers to despise
“mammon,” i.e., money, and to “render it unto Caesar.” When sought for his sage
advice by Roman soldiers, John the Baptist tells them to “be contented with their
wages” (Luke 3:14). This injunction against money by the “rebellious” Jesus and his
cohorts served the state and its religion very nicely, since it was they who ended up
with the money. Such exhortations by “Jesus” beg the question as to why an
omniscient and compassionate god would advise his followers to give away all their
money and potentially starve to death. Such a god would not behave in this callous
manner, but those who were to get the money would. Nor would any god need people
to tithe to his priests and church if he were real and all-powerful, therefore having no
need for the back-breaking labor of human beings to sustain him.
It is quite obvious who really wrote these passages, yet people still blindly submit
to the authorities because of them, believing that there is indeed a single, omniscient,
omnipresent and omnipotent being in charge at all times and that “he” has given
authorities their power.
Christianity, in effect, was a state religion devised to enrich and empower certain
individuals and groups, who have since become among the most powerful on the
In creating their state religion, the Christian conspirators not only founded the
world’s greatest forgery mill but also went on a censorship rampage that
silenced millions of dissident voices by murder and destroyed books, temples,
statues, inscriptions and other traces of the previous cultures, eventually leading to
immense ignorance and the virtual illiteracy of the Western world. As Roberts says:
To get rid of the damning fact that there is no historical basis for their theological
fictions, the Christian priesthood have been guilty of the heinous crime of destroying
nearly all traces of the concurrent history of the first two centuries of the Christian
era. What little of it they have permitted to come down to us, they have so altered and
changed, as to destroy its historical value.
These censoring Christians were no doubt well aware what literacy and books
really represented, as the words “library” and “liberty” share the same root, “liber,”
the Latin word for “book.” Walker relates the Church’s modus operandi:
It was always important for religious authorities to control literature, and to gain the
legal right to destroy books that contradicted their own teachings. Few people were
so assiduous in this endeavor as Christians. In the third to sixth centuries, whole
libraries were burned, schools and universities destroyed and citizens’ books
confiscated throughout the Roman world, on the pretext of defending the church
against paganism. Under the early Christian emperors, people were framed by
ecclesiastical investigators who planted “magical writings” in their houses, then
legally confiscated all possessions.cmlxxiv
After the Council of Nicea, per the murderous Constantine’s orders, the
Christians turned up the heat on censorship, leading to the centuries-long orgy that
obliterated millions of texts. One of the greatest crimes in human history was the
destruction in 391 of the library at Alexandria perpetrated by Christian fanatics
under Theophilus bent on hiding the truth about their religion and its alleged
founder. Because of this villainy, we have lost priceless information as to the true
state of the ancient world, with such desolation also setting back civilization at least
1,000 years. The portion of the Alexandrian library placed in the Temple of Serapis
also perished, “as this very valuable library was wilfully destroyed by the Christian
Theophilus, and on the spot where this beautiful temple of Serapis stood, in fact, on
its very foundation, was erected a church in honor of the ‘noble army of martyrs,’
who never existed.”
As Graham states, “By the fifth
century the destruction was so complete Archbishop Chrystostom could boast of it
thus: ‘Every trace of the old philosophy and literature of the ancient world has
vanished from the face of the earth.
At some point, a death penalty was enacted for reading unapproved books,
e.g., those that demonstrated the faith was a sham. Pope after pope continued the
assault on books and learning. Gregory, Bishop of Constantinople (@ 540-604), the
last of the “doctors” of the Church, actively engaged in book-burning. In the 11th
century, “Saint” Gregory had the Library of Palatine Apollo burned, and the Council
of Trent (1545-63) reconfirmed the policy against “heathen” learning.
Where the Christians did not destroy the works of the ancient authors, they
corrupted and mutilated them. Indeed, in order to preserve their texts from these
violent hands, the Gnostics themselves were compelled to Christianize them, such
that they also had to historicize their mythical characters.cmlxxviii So extensive was this
practice of fraud that evidently no ancient author’s work maintains its original
integrity.cmlxxix Walker elaborates upon the extent of the fraud:
After burning books and closing pagan schools, the church dealt in another kind of
forgery: falsification by omission. All European history was extensively edited by a
church that managed to make itself the sole repository of literary and historical
records. With all important documents assembled in the monasteries, and the lay
public rendered illiterate, Christian history could be forged with impunity.cmlxxx
As stated, in addition to destroying and mutilating books, the Christians
demolished and desecrated the temples, statues and sacred sites of their
predecessors and competitors. The erection of Christian churches on the ruins of
pagan temples and sacred sites was not only common but de rigeur, serving to
obliterate the evidence of the previous deity and worship.
In some of the ancient Egyptian temples the Christian iconoclasts, when tired of
hacking and hewing at the symbolic figures incised in the chambers of imagery, and
defacing the most prominent features of the monuments, found they could not dig
out the hieroglyphics, and took to covering them over with plaster; and this plaster,
intended to hide the meaning and stop the mouth of the stone word, has served to
preserve the ancient writings as fresh in hue and sharp in outline as when they were
first cut and colored. In a similar manner the temple of ancient religion was invaded
and possession gradually gained by connivance of Roman power; and that enduring
fortress, not built but quarried out of sold rock, was stuccoed all over the front and
made white a-while with its look of brand-newness, and reopened under the sign of
another name—that of the carnalized Christ
Thus, these hieroglyphs have revealed the truth, because they contain the
celestial mythos and ritual, and demonstrate that the Christian story is in large part
In addition to this odious Christian behavior was the Inquisition, the most
ghastly period in all of human history, in which millions were tortured and murdered
over centuries so that they or their descendants would conform to the dogma of the
Catholic Church. During those many centuries, no dissenter was allowed to flourish
and few to live at all. Anyone who dared to question the fairytales now being forced
upon them—in other words, all the honest people—were forced to convert or die.
Either way, the people would then become fiscally beneficial to the greedy, deceitful
Church, by serving as slaves, tithing or forfeiting their assets through death, natural
In the middle of the 2nd century, the original Gnostic schools began to dissent
from the Judaizing and historicizing activity, objecting that their original work was
not meant to be taken literally. At the end of the 2nd century, the historicizing push
increased with the success of the Roman play for domination, and the canonical
gospels were completed somewhat, although they were continuously reworked to
agree at least superficially with other newly forged manuscripts. This tinkering went
on for centuries until relative uniformity was achieved with dozens of councils as
well. In fact, the mutilation continues to this day in translations that obfuscate
The aim of this priestcraft, of course, was to create a new godman that would not
only roll into one all the others but also unite the luni-stellar and solar cult
priesthoods, as well as usher in the new age. As the mythical Moses had been utilized
to inaugurate the new age of Aries, Jesus was created to do likewise with the age of
Pisces. Thus, to the Krishna/Christos myth were added fish motifs from the
Osiris/Horus myth, as well as numerous other elements of the Egyptian and other
religions, such as the December 25th birthdate, which was established in the fourth
century to usurp the cult of Mithra. So it went for centuries, as the fable was cobbled
together and the texts overhauled, with ongoing purges.
In this effort, the largely astrological and mythological works of the eclectic
Gnostics/Therapeuts were latched onto by historicizers of the second, third and
fourth centuries, including Irenaeus, Justin, Tertullian, Origen, Clement
Alexandrinus, Tatian and Eusebius. To the conspirators list can be added Ambrose,
Augustine, Gregory and Jerome, the four “doctors,” so-called because they had
the highest degrees from the Therapeutan Alexandrian school. Other
villains in the mythmaking included Lactantius, Constantine, Justinian, as well as
basically all the popes, including Sylvester, who was pope during the Council of
Nicea. Pope Innocent II created the Council of Basel (1431-49), in large part in order
to call for bookburning. The first archbishop of York, Paulinus (d. 645), purportedly
tampered with scriptures from Armenia and Upper Egypt newly discovered in his
time. We can be certain that there are many others behind the scenes whose names
have never made it into records books—at least not overtly. These individuals no
doubt have been extremely wealthy and powerful.
Civilizations have been born and completed and then forgotten again and again.
There is nothing new under the sun. What is, has been. All that we learn and discover
has existed before; our inventions and discoveries are but reinventions, rediscoveries.
Col. James Churchward
As noted, there are numerous symbols shared globally, including the cross,
which, like so many others, was a symbol of the sun. One of the most ubiquitous
symbols is the now-infamous swastika, or crooked cross, also an emblem of the sun,
“termed the oldest symbol known to the world” and found around the globe, such as
in Alaska, North and Central America, India, Russia and China.mlxxvii The swastika
was even a Christian symbol many centuries before its revival by the devout Roman
Catholic Hitler. As Walker says:
Swastikas appear on Paleolithic carvings on mammoth ivory from the Ukraine, dated
ca. 10,000 B.C. Swastikas figure on the oldest coinage in India. . . . [The swastika]
also represented many other deities from Iceland to Japan, Scandinavia to North
Africa. . . . Early Christians adopted the swastika to represent Christ . . .
The global civilization and its mythos are reflected in the amazing physical
remains around the world, which have never been fully explained or addressed by
mainstream authorities. Nevertheless, from Giza and Baalbek to Stonehenge,
Tiahuanaco, China and Pohnpei are ruins of unexplained origins and
resemblance, prompting John Keel, for one, to exclaim, “There had to be a single
worldwide culture at one point in ancient history. . . . Some thing or someone
inspired the ancients to perform incredible feats of construction.
As to the possible age of human culture, Albert Churchward makes this
The Solar Cult lasted about 100,000 years and the Lunar before this about 50,000
years. The Stellar Cult was anterior to these, and lasted at least 300,000 years; how
much longer it is impossible to say, but from remains found of the Stellar Cult people
in Pliocene Strata formations they were in existence at least 600,000 years ago
Based on archaeological, anthropological, astrological and mythological
evidence, A. Churchward claimed that modern humans must have existed at least 2.8
million years ago.mciv While Churchward wrote several decades ago, and would thus
seem to be outdated in the face of so many scientific discoveries and conclusions
since then, his arguments are compelling. This estimation may not be so farfetched,
in any case. In fact, in seeming accord with the Hindu chronology, which goes back
millions of years, Keel reports that, “Human footprints and man-made objects were
repeatedly turning up in coal mines and geological strata dating back millions of
Keel also states, “Our planet is at least three billion years old and there is
growing evidence that great civilizations existed here while our ancestors were still
According to the current paradigm, the modern human only came into being
100,000 years ago, a figure that keeps being pushed back; however, for some reason,
humans did not develop significantly for 70,000 years, when they began to paint
beautiful images in caves, among other things. Nevertheless, if the human species
can progress as far as it has in the past five hundred years, there is no reason it could
not have done so tens of thousands of years ago. In fact, it makes no sense at all, if
homo sapiens appeared 100,000 years ago, that it only reached an advanced degree
of culture in the past 6-8,000 years.
The Evolution of Religion
However old it is or came to be here, the human species has a common culture
going back many thousands of years. This culture included a religious and spiritual
tradition that was simple and uniform, although highly detailed, because it was
based on the complexities of nature. It was not, however, founded on the
complexities of human beings, i.e., racism, sexism, general bigotry, warfare, etc.,
until humans brought themselves into it and imposed themselves on it. The protoreligion focused its attention not on any person, prophet, savior or saint of a
particular ethnicity or gender but upon the “Architecture” of the Grand Architect, the
Vault of Heavens and the Pillars of Earth. The Grand Architect was not only Father
but the “Great Mother . . . the primeval waters and source of creation,” a common
theme in mythologies and cosmogonies worldwide, as is the idea of a self-generated
male/female entity that separates itself into “the heavens and the earth.” Another
common concept is that “God” is One but is represented in and by the Many. The sun
and moon are “his/her” eyes, for example, and the sky “his/her” abode. “S/He” is,
indeed, both the daytime and the “serpent of the night.” The Grand Architect
demonstrated her/his masterful skills through the precise workings of the solar
system, which were not only revered by the ancient global culture but imitated on
Earth in massive stoneworks that are the domain of masons, who also kept the
knowledge of the sacred geometry passed to them by the Architect. Evidently, these
priest-masons passionately attempted to keep “the Architect’s clock,” wherever they
went; thus, they built celestial “computers” worldwide, and they taught the celestial
mythos so that the sacred knowledge would never be lost. So passionate were they, in
fact, that they took enormous pains to preserve the mythos and sacred knowledge
and to make it understandable; yet, it has been ignored, disparaged and historicized
in the most vulgar manner in order to allow powermongers to compete with
each other. Thus, we are inheritors of not only the physical ruins of the great global
civilization but the spiritual wreck as well.
The Origins of Cultural Bigotry and Racism
One of the most unfortunate aspects of the historicizing of this “oldest story ever
sold” was that one particular ethnic group, and that one only, became esteemed
above all others for being “God’s chosen people,” the “priestly nation” and the
spiritual masters of mankind. Another calamitous aspect has been the vilification of
these same people as “Christkillers” and foaming-at-the-mouth murderers of the
Almighty Lord God himself. Thus, in believing the gospel tale Christians have been
forced into a love-hate relationship with the Jews, who are to be perceived as “God’s
chosen” and “Christkillers” at the same time. Not only is this schizophrenic salvation
plan and legacy not the product of any good god, it is utterly divisive, setting people
against each other all over the world.
Furthermore, not a few people have wondered why these identical stories found
outside of the Bible and revolving around “Gentile” or “Pagan” characters are
“myths,” while the biblical tales told about Hebrews and Jews are “history.” As
We have repudiated Greek and Roman mythologies with disdain. Why, then, admit
with respect the mythology of the Jews? Ought the miracles of Jehovah to impress us
more than those of Jupiter? . . . I have much more respect for the Greek Jupiter than
for the God of Moses; for if he gives some examples not of the purest morality, at
least he does not flood his altar with streams of human blood.mcxxi
The gospel story constitutes cultural bigotry and does a disservice to the history
of humanity. Contrary to popular belief, the ancients were not an ignorant and
superstitious lot who actually believed their deities to be literal characters. Nor were
they as a whole immoral or unenlightened. This propaganda has been part of the
conspiracy to make the ancients appear as if they were truly the dark and dumb
rabble that was in need of the “light of Jesus.” As Massey says:
The picture of the New Beginning commonly presented is Rembrandt-like in tone.
The whole world around Judea lay in the shadow of outer darkness, when suddenly
there was a great light seen at the centre of all, and the face of the startled universe
was illuminated by an apparition of the child-Christ lying in the lap of Mary. Such
was the dawn of Christianity, in which the Light of the World had come to it at last!
That explanation is beautifully simple for the simple-minded; but the picture is
purely false—or, in sterner words, it is entirely false.mcxxii
And Pikes asks, “Did the Deity leave the whole world without Light for two score
centuries, to illuminate only a little corner of Palestine and a brutal, ignorant, and
The reality is that the ancients were no less advanced in their morals and
spiritual practices, and in many cases were far more enlightened, than the Christians
in their own supposed morality and ideology, which, in its very attempt at historicity,
is in actuality a degradation of the ancient celestial and terrestrial religion. Indeed,
unlike the Christians, the true intelligentsia among the ancients were well aware that
their gods were astronomical and atmospheric in nature. Even the much vilified
Babylonians declared that their gods and those of other cultures and ages were the
sun, moon, stars and planets, demonstrating that they were not only advanced but
honest in this matter. In addition, the eminent Greek philosophers Socrates, Plato
and Aristotle surely knew that their gods, such as Zeus, the sky-god father-figure
who migrated to Greece from India and/or Egypt, were never real people.
These three great Greek luminaries were, oddly enough, highly esteemed by early
Christian conspirators, who, as they had with so many preceding purveyors of
wisdom and ideologies, falsely presented these savants’ known accomplishments in
philosophy as divine revelation to the Church. Such appropriation was recognized
by the ancients themselves. For instance, Amelius, a Platonist of the 3rd century,
“upon reading the first verse of St. John the Evangelist, exclaimed, ‘By Jove, this
barbarian agrees with our Plato.’”mcxxiv Cardinal Palavicino is quoted as saying,
“Without Aristotle we should be without many Articles of Faith.”mcxxv It is amusing to
consider that the omniscient “Lord,” who came to deliver a “New Dispensation,”
needed the writings of Aristotle to determine doctrine for “his” Church. It is likewise
interesting that, by constantly “borrowing from” and aligning themselves with
exalted philosophers who were recognized as having penetrated the mysteries of the
cosmos, the Christians themselves admitted just how advanced were their
predecessors. Thus, we discover that the image of the ancient world as portrayed by
Christianity is utterly false.
In fact, rather than serving as an improvement, Christianity has been a psychic
trauma, uprooting ideas and deities that were worshipped since Neolithic times,
particularly nature gods and goddesses. The sexist Judeo-Christian-Islamic ideology
has been a war on all things considered female, including Nature and Mother Earth.
The patriarchal age has represented the military campaign of the sky-god fatherfigure against the earth-goddess mother-figure. In the process, the Goddess’s
groves—so sacred to the ancients that to cut them down was sometimes a capital
offense—have been plowed under and her creatures butchered in a vicious quest for
riches and “heaven.” The current culture is now headed for environmental cataclysm,
because this ideology has served to disconnect human beings from the earth, to
constantly focus their attention not on this life and this reality but on an afterlife and
another world altogether.
Furthermore, as Graham says, “Such a story as the Gospels tell us is unworthy of
man’s respect; it is, we repeat, the greatest fraud and hoax ever perpetrated upon
mankind.”mcxxvi No human culture can survive that bases its fundamental beliefs and
perceptions on a hoax, particularly one in which the result has been the needless
torture and slaughter of millions around the globe.
In reality, Christianity was the product of a multinational cabal composed of
members of a variety of brotherhoods, secret societies and mystery schools, and was
designed to empower and enrich such individuals and to unify their empire. To do
so, these conspirators took myriad myths and rituals of virtually all the known
cultures and combined them into one, producing a godman to beat them all. This
unreachable fictional character has since been considered the “greatest man who
ever walked the earth,” to whom no one else can compare and besides whom nobody
else deserves much recognition and appreciation. All others are, in fact, pathetic,
born-in-sin wretches. But, he did not walk the earth, and we must hereafter allow the
dignity of sanctity to be bestowed upon not just one “man” but all of creation.
The prejudice and bigotry promulgated by Christianity and other monolithic yet
divisive ideologies have caused an atrocious amount of destruction of cultural
diversity. It has been demonstrated what a wonderfully colorful and varied world
it is in which we live. Around the globe for millennia has appeared a mythos, a core
of understanding, that is cosmic and eternal in nature. It once had an infinite variety
of flavors and incorporated much of creation in a divine and respectful play. To
reduce all this glory to a handful of characters of a particular ethnicity who allegedly
played out the cosmic drama one time in history robs us not only of the truth but also
of our diversity and universality as well. Furthermore, by removing our ability to
question “authority” and to develop our own individuality, this ideology
homogenizes us in a way that it is not beneficial but ugly and sheepish. By
understanding the terrestrial and cosmic mythos conveyed for millennia, we can
move ourselves at last into an age of enlightenment and enjoy the multiplicity of
the human mind, unfettered by controlling concepts and “thought police” that limit
creativity and wisdom.
The New Age
It has been demonstrated that Christianity pretty much got it all wrong—except
the end to its erroneous means: It succeeded in enriching and empowering its most
effective proponents many times over. According to the same astrological system
used to create Christianity, the age for such divisiveness, fascism and hierarchical
exploitation is now drawing to a close, and lying, deceit, cheating and stealing will
fall by the wayside. Included in this age in which “the truth will be shouted from the
rooftops” is the exposure of Earth’s “dirty little secret.” As Jacolliot says:
Apostles of Jesus, you have counted too much upon human credulity, trusted too
much that the future might not unveil your manoeuvres and your fabricated
recitalsthe sanctity of your object made you too oblivious of means, and you have
taken the good faith of peoples by surprise in re-producing the fables of another age,
which you believed buried for ever.mcxxvii
But the future is now, and the maneuvers are being unveiled. As far as
Christianity’s role in this “New Age,” Carpenter states:
Christianity therefore, as I say, must either now come frankly forward and,
acknowledging its parentage from the great Order of the past, seek to rehabilitate
that and carry mankind one step forward in the path of evolution—or else it must
perish. There is no alternative.mcxxviii
Despite the vilification of the so-called New Age movement, the fact is that we
are entering into a new age. “I am with you always to the close of the age”—so ends
the Gospel of Matthew. What does this mysterious statement mean, and why was
this all-important book ended with it? The age referred to in the gospel tale is that of
Pisces, and, through contrivance and duplicity, coercion and slaughter, the fish-god
“Jesus,” the Piscean Solar Avatar, has indeed been with us, but now it is the close of
the age, and his time is over.
As Hancock says, “We live today in the astrological no man’s land at the end of
the ‘Age of Pisces,’ on the threshold of the ‘New Age’ of Aquarius. Traditionally these
times of transition between one age and the next have been regarded as illomened.”mcxxix Ill-omened verily, as the ongoing destruction of the earth and the
endless warfare over ideology will indeed produce the “Armageddon” so long
awaited and planned for by those who cannot live for today but must look towards an
afterlife. By realizing the cultural unity revealed behind the Christ conspiracy,
however, humanity can pull together and prevent this fall, to create a better world.
The sign of the cross, represented in its simplest form by a crossing of two lines at right angles, greatly antedates, in both the East and the West, the introduction of Christianity. It goes back to a very remote period of human civilization…….It is also…a symbol of the sun…and seems to denote its daily rotation…. Cruciform objects have been found in Assyria. Shari people in Egypt wearing crucifixes around
their necks. The statutes of Kings Asurnazirpal and Sansirauman, now in the British Museum, have cruciform jewels about the neck…. Cruciform earrings were found by Father Delattre in Punic tombs at Carthage.
Another symbol which has been connected with the cross is the ansated cross (ankh or crux ansata) of the ancient Egyptians…. From the earliest times also it appears among the hieroglyphic signs symbolic of life or of the living… perhaps it was originally, like the swastika, an astronomical sign. The ansated cross is found on many and various monuments of Egypt…. In later times the Egyptian Christians (Copts), attracted by its
form, and perhaps by its symbolism, adopted it as the emblem of the cross…

The sun is a prominent deity in the religions of India as elsewhere, dating back centuries to millennia. Hindu literature from ancient times is full of reverence for the solar deity, the supreme light that inhabits the visible disk. In the Gāyatrī Mantra, a Vedic scripture, the sun
is revealed as the Supreme Godhead:
Let us adore the supremacy of that divine Sun, the Godhead, who illuminates all, who recreates all, from whom all proceed, to whom all must return: whom we invoke to direct our understanding aright in our progress toward his holy seat.
Demonstrating its importance—and that of the sun to Indian religion—this ―mantra of the sun‖ is claimed to be ―superior to all the mantras referred to in the Vedas.‖137 Indeed, the Gāyatrī is
―considered as the ‗Mother of the Vedas.
Now, of the many astrological-astronomical metaphors in the Bible, one of the most important has to do with the ages. Throughout the scriptures there are numerous references to the “Age.” In order to understand this, we need to be familiar with the phenomenon known as the precession of the equinoxes.
The ancient Egyptians along with cultures long before them recognized that approximately every 2,150 years the sunrise on the morning of the spring equinox would occur at a different sign of the Zodiac.
First of all, it should be understood that the figure of 2,150 years is not an exact date for the precession of the equinoxes, which is around 25,800 years long, rounded up to 26,000.
Secondly, although in the second century the Greek astronomer Hipparchus of Nicea became the first to formalize the precession in writing, around 130 BCE, this knowledge seems to date back several centuries to millennia before that time. As Murdock elaborates:
Another important factor in ancient astrotheology is the precession of the equinoxes, a phenomenon caused by the earth‘s off-axis tilt, whereby the sun at the vernal equinox (spring) is back-dropped by a different constellation every 2,150 or so years, a period called an ―age.‖ One cycle of the precession through the 12 signs of the zodiacal ages is
called a ―Great Year,‖ and is approximately 26,000 years long.
According to orthodox history, the precession was only ―discovered‖ in the second century BCE by the Greek astronomer Hipparchus; however, it is clear from ancient texts, traditions, artifacts and monuments that more ancient peoples knew about it and attempted to compensate for
it from age to age.
In Hamlet’s Mill, Santillana and Dechend demonstrate knowledge of the precession at much earlier times, stating: ―There is good reason to assume that he [Hipparchus] actually rediscovered this, that it had been known some thousand years previously, and that on it the Archaic Age based its long-range computation of time
Astronomer Dr. Krupp agrees:
Circumstantial evidence implies that the awareness of the shifting equinoxes may be of considerable antiquity, for we find, in Egypt at least, a succession of cults whose iconography and interest focus on duality, the bull, and the ram at appropriate periods for Gemini, Taurus, and Aries in the precessional cycle of the equinoxes.
This scenario is described further thus:
Each year the sun passes entirely around the zodiac and returns to the point from which it started—the vernal equinox—and each year it falls just a little short of making the complete circle of the heavens in the allotted period of time. As a result, it crosses the equator just a little behind the spot in the zodiacal sign where it crossed the previous year. Each sign of the zodiac consists of thirty degrees, and as the sun loses
about one degree every seventy two years, it regresses through one entire constellation (or sign) in approximately 2,160 years, and through the entire zodiac in about 25,920 years. (Authorities disagree concerning these figures.) This retrograde motion is called the precession of the equinoxes. This means that in the course of about 25,920 years,
which constitute one Great Solar or Platonic Year, each one of the twelve constellations occupies a position at the vernal equinox for nearly 2,160 years, then gives place to the previous sign.
Among the ancients the sun was always symbolized by the figure and nature of the constellation through which it passed at the vernal equinox. For nearly the past 2,000 years the sun has crossed the equator at the vernal equinox in the constellation of Pisces (the Two Fishes). For the 2,160 years before that it crossed through the constellation of Aries (the Ram). Prior to that the vernal equinox was in the sign of Taurus (the Bull). It is probable that the form of the bull and the bull‘s proclivities were assigned to this constellation because the bull was used by the ancients to plow the fields, and the season set aside for plowing and furrowing corresponded to the time at which the sun reached the segment of the heavens named Taurus.
Please see A.L. Berger‘s Obliquity and precession for the last 5 million years,277 and Nicholas Campion‘s The Great Year for more on the precession phenomenon.
This has to do with a slow angular wobble that the Earth maintains as it rotates on its axis. It is called a precession because the constellations go backwards, rather than through the normal yearly cycle. The amount of time that it takes for the precession to go through all 12 signs is roughly 25,765 years. This is also called the “Great Year,” and ”ancient societies were very aware” of this. They referred to each 2150 year period as an “age.”
In discussing this theme as it concerns Christianity, it is important to recall the highly astrological contents of the Bible, not only as metaphor but also as explicitly signified in the stories themselves. For example, Job 38:31-33 (NKJV) says: Can you bind the cluster of the Pleiades, Or loose the belt of Orion? Can you bring out Mazzaroth in its season? Or can you guide the Great Bear with its cubs? Do you know the ordinances of the heavens? Can you set their dominion over the earth?…
According to Strong‘s Concordance (H4216), the Hebrew word הזרמor ―Mazzaroth‖ means ―the 12 signs of the Zodiac and their 36 associated constellations. Furthermore, there are many references to an ―age in the Bible as well, such as the following examples (NASB):
―I am with you always, even to the end of the age. (Mt 28:20)
―…it shall not be forgiven him, either in this age or in the age to come.‖ (Mt 12:32)
―…the harvest is the end of the age… (Mt 13:39)
―…what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?‖ (Mt 24:3)
―…in the age to come, eternal life. (Lk 18:30)
―Where is the debater of this age? (1 Cr 1:20)
―…he is wise in this age… (1 Cr 3:18)
―…upon whom the ends of the ages have come. (1 Cr 10:11)
―…not only in this age but also in the one to come. (Eph 1:21)
―…the powers of the age to come… (Hbr 6:5)
―…he has appeared once for all at the end of the age to put away sin by the sacrifice of
himself. (Hbr 9:26) (RSV)
The Greek word in question is αἰών or ―aion‖/‖aeon,‖ which Strong‘s (G165) defines as:
1) for ever, an unbroken age, perpetuity of time, eternity
2) the worlds, universe
3) period of time, age
From 4300 B.C. to 2150 B.C., it was the Age of Taurus, the Bull. From
2150 B.C. to 1 A.D., it was the Age of Aries, the Ram, and from 1 A.D. to 2150 A.D. it is the Age of Pisces, the age we are still in to this day, and in and around 2150, we will enter the new age: the Age of Aquarius.
Now, the Bible reflects, broadly speaking, a symbolic movement through
three ages, while foreshadowing a fourth. In the Old Testament when Moses comes down Mount Sinai with the 10 Commandments, he is very upset to see his people worshipping a golden bull calf. In fact, he shattered the stone tablets and instructed his people to kill each other in order to purify themselves. Most biblical scholars would attribute this anger to the fact that the Israelites were worshipping a false idol, or something to that effect…
The reality is’—the golden bull is Taurus the Bull, and Moses represents the new Age of Aries the Ram. This is why Jews even today still blow the Ram’s horn. (Jos 6:4) Moses represents the new Age of Aries, and upon the new age, everyone must shed the old age. Other deities mark these transitions as well, such as Mithra, a pre-Christian god who kills the bull, in the same symbology.
The stories of the golden bull calf (Exd 32:34) and the instruction to his people to kill each other in order to purify themselves (Exd 32:27) are found in the biblical Book of Exodus. With regard to the Bull/Calf symbolism as it relates to the Age of Taurus, along with the transition
into the Age of Aries, the Ram, Carpenter explains:
…the Precession of the Equinoxes caused the Sun, at its moment of triumph over the powers of darkness, to stand at one period in the constellation of the Bull, and at a period some two thousand years later in the constellation of the Ram. It was perfectly natural therefore that a change in the sacred symbols should, in the course of time, take place; yet perfectly natural also that these symbols, having once been consecrated and adopted, should continue to be honored and clung to long after the time of their astronomical appropriateness had passed, and so to be found side by side in later centuries….
Now Jesus is the figure who ushers in the age following Aries, the Age of
Pisces or the Two Fish. Fish symbolism is very abundant in the New
Testament. Jesus feeds 5,000 people with bread and “two fish.” When he begins his ministry walking along Galilee, he befriends two fisherman, who follow him. The motifs of Jesus miraculously feeding the crowd with two fish (Mt 14:17; Jn 6:9) and the two fishermen (Mt 4:19) can be found in the New Testament. The gospel of John is loaded with
fishy imagery, including Jesus essentially establishing the fish as the symbol of the Christian age, when he emphasizes it in the last chapter, after his Resurrection:
Jesus said to them, “Children, have you any fish?” They answered him, “No.” (Jn 21:5)
The Greek word for fish is ΙΧΘΥΣ, which has been held since ancient times as a symbol of Jesus Christ, thus further reinforcing the apparent astrological symbolism of Christianity, since we have been astrologically in the Age of Pisces during the ―Christian era.‖ The fish symbol is therefore found all over the place in Christian tradition: As another example, early Christians were called ―Pisciculi‖ or ―little fishes.
As the Catholic Encyclopedia states: ―Among the symbols employed by the primitive Christians, that of the fish ranks probably first in importance.‖285 In this regard, French historian and archaeologist Dr. Adolphe Napoléon Didron says:
The fish, in the opinion of antiquarians in general, is the symbol of Jesus Christ… A fish is sculptured upon a number of Christian monuments, and more particularly upon the ancient sarcophagi… It is seen also upon medals bearing the name of our Saviour, and upon engraved stones, cameos and intaglios, The fish is also to be remarked upon
the amulets worn, suspended from the neck by children, and upon ancient glasses and sepulchral lamps….
…Tertullian adds, ―We are little fishes in Christ our great fish.
I think we’ve all seen the Jesus-fish on the backs of people’s cars.
Little do they know what it actually means. It is a Pagan astrological
symbolism for the Sun’s Kingdom during the Age of Pisces. Also, Jesus’
assumed birth date is essentially the start of this age.
Concerning Jesus‘s connection to the astrological Age of Pisces, Carpenter comments:
Finally it has been pointed out…that in the quite early years of Christianity the Fish came in as an accepted symbol of Jesus Christ. Considering that after the domination of Taurus and Aries, the Fish (Pisces) comes next in succession as the Zodiacal sign for
the Vernal Equinox, and is now the constellation in which the Sun stands at that period, it seems not impossible that the astronomical change has been the cause of the adoption of this new symbol.
Indeed, it is likewise important to point out that the LAMB too was associated with Jesus early on. This fact represents a residual reference to the Age of Aries, while the Fish is the Age of Pisces, the next age in the precession of the equinoxes. Coupled with the astrological
symbolism in other parts of the Bible, it would be logical to conclude that we are seeing more of the same here. Concerning this development, Murdock remarks:
As Moses was created to usher in the Age of Aries, so was Jesus to serve as the Avatar of the Age of Pisces, which is evident from the abundant fish imagery used throughout the gospel tale. This zodiacal connection has been so suppressed that people with the fish symbol on the back of their cars have no idea what it stands for, although they are fallaciously told it represents ―ICHTHYS,‖ as anagram for ―Jesus Christ, Son of God,
Savior,‖ ichthys also being the Greek word for fish.
At Luke 22:10 when Jesus is asked by his disciples where the last Passover will be, Jesus replied: “Behold, when ye are entered into the city, there shall a man meet you bearing a pitcher of water… follow him into the house where he entereth in.” This scripture is by far one of the most revealing of all the astrological references. The man bearing a pitcher of water is Aquarius, the water-bearer, who is always pictured as a man pouring out a pitcher of water.
He represents the age after Pisces, and when the Sun, “God’s Sun,” leaves the Age of Pisces, “Jesus,” it will go into the House of Aquarius, as Aquarius follows Pisces in the precession of the equinoxes. All Jesus is saying is that after the Age of Pisces will come the Age of Aquarius.
Aquarius is Latin for ―water-bearer/carrier.‖ Its significance is summarized by Maxwell:
According to astrology, sometime after the year 2010, the Sun will enter His new Sign, or His new Kingdom, as it was called by the ancients. This new coming Sign/Kingdom, soon to be upon us, will be, according to the Zodiac, the House or Sign of Aquarius. So when we read in Luke 22:10, we now understand why God‘s Sun states that He and His followers, at the last Passover, are to go into ―the house of the man with the water
pitcher.‖ So we see that in the coming millennium, God‘s Sun will bring us into His new Kingdom or House of Aquarius (the man with the water pitcher).
Murdock likewise suggests that this periscope refers to the Aquarian Age:
…Jesus [evidently] makes mention of the precession of the equinoxes of the change of the ages when he says to the disciples, who are asking about how to prepare for the―Passover‖: ―Behold, when you have entered the city, a man a carrying a pitcher of water will meet you; follow him into the house which he enters…‖ (Lk 22:10) This famous yet enigmatic passage [ostensibly] refers to the ―house‖ or Age of Aquarius, theWater-Bearer, and Jesus is instructing his disciples to pass over into it.
Combined with all the evidence we have seen regarding the astrology of the Bible and Christian tradition, along with the astrotheology of much Pagan religion and mythology that Judaism and Christianity are based on, these conclusions are logical and more scientific than believing
fabulous biblical tales as either ―historical‖ or ―just made up.
In other words, the most scientific conclusion is not that various supernatural motifs found in the New Testament tale are either ―factual or simply fabricated on the spot by zealous followers of an otherwise ―historical Jesus: In reality, they are mythical, as found in the myths of predecessor gods and goddesses, and possess astrotheological meaning as they did in those myths.
Now, we have all heard about the end times and the end of the world. The cartoonish depictions in the Book of Revelation aside, a main source of this idea comes from Matthew 28:20, where Jesus says “I will be with you even to the end of the world.” However, in the King James Version, “world” is a mistranslation, among many mistranslations. The actual word being used is “aeon”, which means “age.” “I will be with you even to the end of the age.”
Which is true, as Jesus’ Solar Piscean personification will end when the Sun enters the Age of Aquarius. The entire concept of end times and the end of the world is a misinterpreted astrological allegory. Let’s tell that to the approximately 100 million people in America who believe the end of the world is coming.
As we have seen, Matthew 28:20 states: ―I will be with you even to the end of the age.‖ The Greek word ―aion‖ or ―aeon‖ means ―age.‖ If God meant to say ―end of the world,‖ He would have used the Greek word ―kosmos.‖ As it had been in previous editions such as the Bishop‘s
Bible (1568), the word was mistranslated as ―world‖ in the King James Bible but has been corrected to ―age in the New King James Version as well as several other more modern English translations.
Jerome‘s Latin Vulgate translation uses the word saeculum, which likewise means age, among other meanings. The Latin word for world is mundus.
Concerning this development, Massey remarks: In the course of Precession, about 255 B.C., the vernal birthplace passed into the sign
of the Fishes, and the Messiah who had been represented for 2155 years by the Ram or Lamb, and previously for other 2155 years by the Apis Bull, was now imaged as the Fish, or the ―Fish-man,‖ called Ichthys in Greek.
The original Fish-man—the An of
Egypt, and the Oan of Chaldea—probably dates from the previous cycle of precession, or 26,000 years earlier; and about 255 B.C., the Messiah, as the Fish-man, was to come up once more as the Manifestor from the celestial waters. The coming Messiah is called Dag, the Fish, in the Talmud; and the Jews at one time connected his coming with
some conjunction, or occurrence, in the sign of the Fishes! This shows the Jews were not only in possession of the astronomical allegory, but also of the tradition by which it could be interpreted.
Furthermore, the character of Jesus, being a literary and astrological
hybrid, is most explicitly a plagiarization of the Egyptian sun god Horus. For example, inscribed about 3,500 years ago, on the walls at the Temple of Luxor in Egypt are images of the enunciation, the miracle conception, the birth, and the adoration of Horus. The images begin with Thoth announcing to the virgin Isis that she will conceive Horus, then Kneph the holy ghost impregnating the virgin, and then the virgin birth and the adoration.
Noah is but one tale in a worldwide collection of at least 500 flood myths, which are the most widespread of all ancient myths and therefore can be considered among the oldest. Stories of a great deluge are found on every inhabited continent and among a great many different language and culture groups.
However, one need look no further for a pre-Christian source than the Epic of Gilgamesh, written in 2600 B.C. This story talks of a Great Flood
commanded by God, an Ark with saved animals upon it, and even the release and return of a dove, all held in common with the biblical story, among many other similarities.
Regarding the Epic of Gilgamesh, British archaeologist Dr. R. Campbell Thompson states:
The Epic of Gilgamish, written in cuneiform on Assyrian and Babylonian clay tablets, is one of the most interesting poems in the world. It is of great antiquity, and, inasmuch as a fragment of a Sumerian Deluge text is extant, it would appear to have had its origin with the Sumerians at a remote period, perhaps the fourth millennium, or even earlier. Three tablets of it exist written in Semitic (Akkadian), which cannot be much
later than 2,000 B.C…
The Bible is nothing more than an astrotheological literary fold hybrid,
just like nearly all religious myths before it. The term ―astrotheology‖ goes back a couple centuries and can be generally defined as a
theology, or religion, that is symbolically derived from natural phenomena, specifically the characteristics and movements of the celestial bodies and their relationship to the earth and, consequently, to the human beings who live upon it. Ancient Greek gods were classic examples of Deity defined by processes of nature, such a Poseidon, the god of the sea, or Zeus, the sky god. Various Egyptian gods and goddesses were also highly astrotheological, as were those of
Babylon, Sumeria and India.
“In fact, it is rather obvious that the tendency to believe as ―historical supernatural phenomena attributed to a god figure in various myths comes from the ‘lack of knowledge’ about astrotheology and nature worship.”
This supernatural and ―historical‖ explanation for natural and astronomical mythological motifs is little different than how numerous diseases were first attributed to demons before the scientific age. In fact, the term ―Act of God is still used today on insurance forms to describe earthquakes and the like.
As we have seen, this tradition of nature worship and astrotheology—the anthropomorphizing of natural and celestial phenomena—extends very far back in time, many thousands of years ago, in many parts of the world.
More specific to the origin of Christianity itself, Dead Sea scroll scholar John M. Allegro had the following to say about the Gnostic Christians, which some claim are the earliest of the Christian sects:
”Thus for the Gnostic, as for religionists all over the world, the heavenly bodies were imbued with divinity and honoured as angelic bodies”.
Furthermore, is there any non-biblical historical evidence of any person,
living with the name Jesus, the Son of Mary, who traveled about with 12
followers, healing people and the like? There are numerous historians who lived in and around the Mediterranean either during or soon after the assumed life of Jesus. How many of these historians document this figure? Not one.
As difficult as it is for some to believe, after nearly two millennia of searching there remains no valid, scientific evidence that the New Testament figure of Jesus Christ ever walked the earth.
As Murdock says:
We have no primary sources proving that Jesus Christ actually existed, no legal documents, no ―glyphs,‖ no papyri, no statuary, coins—nothing. All we have to go on is hearsay, the bulk of which is secondary, tertiary and so on. …Only ‘two gospels’ are accepted as having come from alleged eyewitnesses, and these constitute but a few
dozen pages with little biographical or historical material yet full of miracles, impossibilities and improbabilities. All the rest of Christian literature represents sources that are secondary and tertiary, etc.
Also, it is worth pointing out a basic logic that coincides with this revelation: How many prior deity/saviors—of which the history of this subject is full—have proved to exist in third- dimensional form?
How many people today think that Horus or Osiris existed? That Zeus or
Apollo truly lived? How many today believe Mithra or Attis were real figures in history?
In this regard, concerning the theory of euhemerism or evemerism—which posits that various gods, godmen, kings, queens, heroes and legends of ancient times were in fact real people, to whose mundane biographers were added a series of supernatural and mythical motifs—French writer Dujardin remarks:
This doctrine is nowadays discredited except in the case of Jesus. No scholar believes that Osiris or Jupiter or Dionysus was an historical person promoted to the rank of god, but exception is made only in favour of Jesus… It is impossible to rest the colossal work of Christianity if he was a man.
Furthermore, if any ―Jesus‖ had actually existed as a human, it becomes very clear that the Jesus of the canonical gospels could not possibly have been him, because there is no evidence for any of the acts performed in the biblical Christ‘s life, and the evidence that does exist suggests him to be another mythical fabrication as had been made by numerous priesthoods for thousands of years previously.
As John E. Remsburg makes clear:
That a man named Jesus, an obscure religious teacher, the basis of the fabulous Christ, lived in Palestine about nineteen hundred years ago, may be true. But of this man we know nothing. His biography has not been written.
In other words, when the mythological layers are peeled, there is no core to the onion. And, a composite of 20 people, real or mythical, is no one.
However, to be fair, that doesn’t mean defenders of the historical Jesus
haven’t claimed the contrary. Four historians are typically referenced to
justify Jesus’s existence: Pliny the younger, Suetonius, Tacitus are the first three. Each one of their entries consists of only a few sentences at best and only refer to “Christus” or the Christ, which in fact is not name but a title. It means the “Anointed one.” The fourth source is Josephus, and this source has been proven to be a forgery for hundreds of years.
Sadly, it is still cited as truth.
Before this subject is addressed, it is often argued that possibly the reason the biblically defined Jesus is not discussed outside of the gospels is because he was largely ―unknown.‖
However, this argument is contradicted by a wealth of evidence in the Bible itself. As Murdock comments in Who Was Jesus? regarding the silence of contemporary historians:
…This silence is singularly astounding, in consideration of the repeated assertions in the gospels that Christ was famed far and wide, drawing great crowds because of his miraculous healings, causing a fracas with the local and imperial authorities, and, upon his death, creating astonishing and awesome miracles and wonders the world had
never seen before, including not only an earthquake and the darkening of the sun and moon, but also dead people rising from their graves and visiting people in town….
These ―great crowds‖ and ―multitudes,‖ along with Jesus‘s fame, are repeatedly referred
to in the gospels, including at the following:
Mt 4:23-25, 5:1, 8:1, 8:18, 9:8, 9:31, 9:33,
9:36, 11:7, 12:15, 13:2, 14:1, 14:13, 14:22, 15:30, 19:2, 21:9, 26:55; Mk 1:28, 10:1; Lk
4:14, 4:37, 5:15, 14:25, etc.335
In this regard, Jim Walker says: If, indeed, the Gospels portray a historical look at the life of Jesus, then the one feature
that stands out prominently within the stories shows that people claimed to know Jesus far and wide, not only by a great multitude of followers but by the great priests, the Roman governor Pilate, and Herod who claims that he had heard ―of the fame of Jesus.‖ (Matt 14:1)
One need only read Matt: 4:25 where it claims that ―there followed
him [Jesus] great multitudes of people from Galilee, and from Decapolis, and from Jerusalem, and from Judea, and from beyond Jordan.The gospels mention, countless times, the great multitude that followed Jesus and crowds of people who congregated to hear him. So crowded had some of these gatherings grown, that Luke 12:1 alleges that
an ―innumerable multitude of people… trod one upon another.‖ Luke 5:15 says that there grew ―a fame abroad of him: and great multitudes came together to hear…‖ The persecution of Jesus in Jerusalem drew so much attention that all the chief priests and scribes, including the high priest Caiaphas, not only knew about him but helped in his alleged crucifixion. (see Matt 21:15-23, 26:3, Luke 19:47, 23:13). The multitude of people thought of Jesus, not only as a teacher and a miracle healer, but a prophet (see Matt:14:5). So, to say Jesus wasn‘t well known is obviously contradictory to the Gospel claims.
As concerns the purported evidence of this widely famed, miraculous advent, the most disputed and defended of the four historians listed above are Josephus and Tacitus, so it is to them that we will turn in our analysis here. (For more information about the others, as well as
Thallus, Phlegon and Mara Bar-Serapion, see Murdock‘s Who Was Jesus?)
Flavius Josephus: Concerning the famed passage in the works of Jewish historian Josephus,
who wrote around 100 AD/CE, in ―The Jesus Forgery: Josephus Untangled,‖ Murdock writes:
Despite the best wishes of sincere believers and the erroneous claims of truculent apologists, the Testimonium Flavianum has been demonstrated continually over the centuries to be a forgery, likely interpolated by Catholic Church historian Eusebius in the fourth century. So thorough and universal has been this debunking that very few
scholars of repute continued to cite the passage after the turn of the 19th century. Indeed, the TF was rarely mentioned, except to note that it was a forgery, and numerous books by a variety of authorities over a period of 200 or so years basically took it for granted that the Testimonium Flavianum in its entirety was spurious, an
interpolation and a forgery. In this regard, Dr. Gordon Stein relates:
…the vast majority of scholars since the early 1800s have said that this quotation is not by Josephus, but rather is a later Christian insertion in his works. In other words, it is a forgery, rejected by scholars.
Earl Doherty says, in ―Josephus Unbound‖:
Now, it is a curious fact that older generations of scholars had no trouble dismissing this entire passage as a Christian construction. Charles Guignebert, for example, in his Jesus…, calls it ―a pure Christian forgery.‖ Before him, Lardner, Harnack and Schurer, along with others, declared it entirely spurious.
Today, most serious scholars have decided the passage is a mix: original parts rubbing shoulders with later Christian additions.
The second Josephan passage, regarding James (Antiquities, 20.9), reads:
Festus was now dead, and Albinus was but upon the road; so he assembled the sanhedrin of judges, and brought before them the brother of Jesus, who was called Christ, whose name was James, and some others; and when he had formed an accusation against them as breakers of the law, he delivered them to be stoned.Critics contend that the phrase ―who was called Christ‖ is an obvious and awkward
Again, for more on the Testimonium Flavianum and James passage, see Murdock‘s ―The Jesus Forgery: Josephus Untangled,‖ Suns of God and Who Was Jesus?
Regarding the Josephan evidence, Jewish writer ben Yehoshua asserts:
Neither of these passages is found in the original version of the Jewish Antiquities which was preserved by the Jews. The first passage (XVII, 3, 3) was quoted by Eusebius writing in c. 320 C.E., so we can conclude that it was added in some time between the time Christians got hold of the Jewish Antiquities and c. 320 C.E. It is not known when the other passage (XX, 9, 1) was added…
Neither passage is based on any reliable sources. It is fraudulent to claim that these passages were written by Josephus and that they provide evidence for Jesus. They were written by Christian redactors and were based purely on Christian belief.
You would think that a guy who rose from the dead and ascended into
Heaven for all eyes to see and performed the wealth of miracles acclaimed to him would have made it into the historical record. He didn’t, because once the evidence is weighed, there are very high odds that the figure known as Jesus, did not even exist.
As stated by The Universal Jewish Encyclopedia (VI, 83):
The only definite account of his life and teachings is contained in the four Gospels of the New Testament, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. All other historical records of the time are silent about him.
The brief mentions of Jesus in the writings of Josephus, Tacitus and Suetonius have been generally regarded as not genuine and as Christian
interpolations; in Jewish writings there is no report about Jesus that has historical value. Some scholars have even gone so far as to hold that the entire Jesus story is a myth…
“…the Christian religion is a parody on the worship of the sun, in which
they put a man whom they call Christ, in place of the sun, and pay him the same adoration which was originally paid to the sun…”
This quote is from famous Anglo-American philosopher and revolutionary statesman Thomas Paine‘s ―Origin of Freemasonry..
The reality is, Jesus was the solar deity of the Gnostic Christian sect, and
like all other Pagan gods, he was a mythical figure.
The mythical nature of Christ is concluded from a lack of evidence for his existence and the preponderance of his alleged characteristics and deeds clearly being part of Pagan mythology, and has been demonstrated throughout this Sourcebook.
In this regard, in Man Made God, Barbara Walker says:
During the past century or so, scholars have shown that all these ―known‖ details of Jesus‘s life story are mythic: That is, they were told for many centuries before his time about many previous savior-gods and legendary heroes in pre-Christian lore. Not a single detail of Jesus‘s life story can be considered authentic. Some investigators have tried to peel away the layers of myth in search of a historical core, but this task is like
peeling the layers of an onion. It seems that there is no core. The layers of myth go all the way to the center.
It was the political establishment that sought to historicize the Jesus
figure for social control.
In 325 A.D. in Rome, Emperor Constantine convened the Council of Nicea. It was during this meeting that the politically motivated Christian doctrines were established and thus began a long history of religious bloodshed and spiritual fraud. And for over the next 1,000 years, the Vatican maintained a political stranglehold on all of Europe, leading to such joyous periods as the Dark Ages, along with enlightening events such as the Crusades, and the Inquisition.
The influence of the Roman authorities in the creation of Christianity is vast, including not only during centuries subsequent to the composition of the canonical gospels, but also within the New Testament texts themselves. As just a couple of examples, at Matthew 22:21, Jesus is made to say: ―Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar’s,‖ in response to a question about tribute money—a very convenient reply for the Empire. Moreover, in the Pauline
epistles, the writer continually exhorts slaves to obey their masters in everything—again, very convenient for the wealthy slave owners, whose possession are obviously under no threat from Christianity. Moreover, the author of the First Epistle of Peter (2:17) exhorts his followers to ―Honor the emperor.‖ (RSV)
In the words of John Allegro referring to the transition into what we know as Christianity today:
When, in the early fourth century, the so-called Great Church attained its goal, its internal enemies lay torn and bleeding, or scattered into the heretical wilderness. Their books were burned, their doctrines forsworn, and often intentionally perverted. Its mythology was misinterpreted and mocked, but a single figure was wrested from its rich store of imagery and made paramount, even historical. The Joshua/Jesus Cycle of
stories was pruned of some of the more improbable narratives, given an unrealistic pro Roman slant, and combined with genuine Essene moral teachings suited more to the sheltered life of a closely knit desert commune that the rough-and-tumble of secular living…
Again, for more information on who actually created Christianity, see the works of Acharya
Christianity, along with all other related theologies, is an historical fraud. These religions now serve to detach the species from the natural world and likewise each other. They support blind submission to authority. They reduce human responsibility to the effect that “God” controls everything, and in turn awful crimes can be justified in the name of a Divine Pursuit. And most critically, it empowers the political establishment, who have been using the myth to manipulate and control societies.
The religious myth is the most powerful device ever created, and serves as the psychological soil upon which other myths can flourish.
While the conclusion here can be considered an opinion, it doesn‘t take much reflection to see how the Abrahamic religions—Christianity, Islam and Judaism—and others have been used for political purposes since the very beginning.
There is a reason why we hear politicians use the
phrase ―God Bless America or the like in other countries even today—it is usually a ploy for manipulation. During the Iraq war of 2003, there were numerous statements about God made by George W. Bush and even the media.
We have also learned that the rifles used by American
troops had notations for biblical scriptures in their scopes. The ploy was, in part, the idea of a religious war, between Christians and Muslims, rallying both sides to the conflict in the name of competing ideologies.
Likewise, psychology has shown that, in certain cases, belief in a larger ―controlling power‖ can create numerous forms of neurosis, both limiting a sense of responsibility and promoting evangelism and prophetic delusions that breed fanaticism…
Thus, the Jesus character is not unique or original, not “divine revelation.” These redeemer tales are similar not because they reflect the actual exploits of a variety of men who did and said the identical things, but because they are representations of the same extremely ancient body of knowledge that revolved around the celestial bodies and natural forces. The result of this mythmaking has been The Christ Conspiracy: The Greatest Story Ever Sold.
by Acharya S/D.M. Murdock
Member, American School of Classical Studies, Athens
Scholar of Archaeology, History, Mythology and Languages
Acharya S, whose real name is D.M. Murdock, was classically educated at some of the finest schools, receiving a degree in Classics, Greek Civilization, from Franklin & Marshall College, the 17th oldest college in the United States. At F&M, listed in the “highly selective” category in guides to top colleges and universities, Ms. Murdock studied under Dr. Robert Barnett, Dr. Joel Farber and Dr. Ann Steiner, among others.
Murdock is also a member of one of the world’s most exclusive institutes for the study of Ancient Greek Civilization, the American School of Classical Studies at Athens, Greece:
“Founded in 1881, the American School of Classical Studies at Athens is the most significant resource in Greece for American scholars in the fields of ancient and post-classical studies in Greek language, literature, history, archaeology, and art. It offers two major resource libraries: the Blegen, with 70,000 volumes dedicated to ancient Greece; and the Gennadius, with 100,000 volumes dedicated to post-classical Greece. The School also sponsors excavations and provides centers for advanced research in archaeological and related topics at its excavations in the Athenian Agora and Corinth, and houses an archaeological
laboratory at the main building complex in Athens. By agreement with the Greek government, the School is authorized to serve as liaison with the Greek Ministry of Culture on behalf of American students and scholars for the acquisition of permits to excavate and to study museum collections.”
Murdock’s professors at the American School of Classical Studies at Athens included:
ASCSA Director Dr. Steven G. Miller, Director, Nemea Excavations
Dr. Stella G. Miller-Collett, Associate Director, Nemea Excavations
Dr. John McK Camp, II, Director, Agora Excavations at Athens
Dr. Charles K. Williams, II, Director, Corinth Excavations
Dr. Nancy Bookidis, Assistant Director, Corinth Excavations
Dr. Frederick A. Cooper, Archaeologist and Architectural Historian, Bassae Excavations
Dr. Oscar T. Broneer, Director, Isthmia Excavations
Dr. Joseph W. Shaw, Director, Kommos Excavations
William B. Dinsmoor, Jr., Archaeologist and Architectural Historian
Murdock has served as a trench master on archaeological excavations in Corinth, Greece, and Connecticut, USA, as well as a teacher’s assistant on the island of Crete. Murdock has traveled extensively around Europe,and she speaks, reads and/or writes English, Greek, French, Spanish, Italian, German, Portuguese and a smattering of other languages to varying degrees. She has read Euripides, Plato and Homer in ancient Greek, and Cicero in Latin, as well as Chaucer’s The Canterbury Tales in Middle English. She has also been compelled to cross-reference the Bible in the original Hebrew and ancient Greek.
Acharya S aka D.M. Murdock has gained expertise in several religions, as well as knowledge about other esoterica and mystical subjects. She is also the author of several books, including The Christ Conspiracy. Her book Suns of God: Krishna, Buddha and Christ Unveiled, is an expansion of the themes and thesis of The Christ Conspiracy. Acharya’s book Who Was Jesus: Fingerprints of The Christ represents a scientific analysis of the data regarding this alleged superhuman god who purportedly walked the earth. Murdock has also written Christ in Egypt: The Horus-Jesus Connection, which demonstrates the Egyptian and Horus parallels to Christianity and Christ to be real and factual.

In the meantime the spread of Christianity throughout the empire proceeded at a steady pace. Wherever the representatives of Mithras arrived, there a Christian community immediately sprang up. By the end of the second century, there were already at least four bishop’s sees in Britannia, sixteen in Gaul, sixteen in Spain, and one in practically every big city in North Africa and the Middle East. In 261 Christianity was recognized as lawful religion by the mithraic Gallienus and was proclaimed the official religion of the empire by the mithraic Constantine at the beginning of the fourth century, although it was still in a minority in Roman society. It was then gradually enforced upon the population of the empire, with a series of measures that culminated at the end of the fourth century with the abolition of the pagan religions and the mass “conversion” of the Roman senate.
The final situation regarding the ruling class of the Western Empire was the following: the ancient nobility of pagan origin had virtually disappeared and the new great nobility, that identified itself with the senatorial class of the landowners, was made up by former members of the Sol Invictus Mitras. On the religious level, paganism had been eliminated and Christianity had become the religion of all the inhabitants of the Empire; it was controlled by ecclesiastical hierarchies, coming entirely from the senatorial class, endowed with immense landed properties and quasi-royal powers within their sees.
The priestly families had become the absolute master of that same Empire that had destroyed Israel and the Temple of Jerusalem. All its high offices, both civil and religious, and all its wealth were in their hands, and supreme power had been entrusted in perpetuity, by divine right, to the most illustrious of the priestly tribes, the “Gens Flavia” (starting from Constantine all Roman emperors bore the name of Flavius), in all likelihood descendants of Josephus Flavius.
Three centuries earlier, Josephus had written with pride: “My family is not obscure, on the contrary, it is of priestly descent: as in all peoples there is a different foundation of the nobility, so with us the excellence of the line is confirmed by its belonging to the priestly order” (Life 1.1). By the end of the fourth century his descendants had every right to apply those same words to the Roman Empire.
At that point the institution of the Sol Invictus Mithras was no more necessary to boost the fortunes of the priestly family and it was disposed of. It had been the instrument of the most successful conspiracy in History.
