Kalimera Acharya S. Being likened up there with Kaminski to Dangerfield is a wonderful spectrum indeed. Be sure to send any articles/links my way as I would be happy to get them circulating through the sleeping, desperate and needy masses. Greece is definitely full of beautiful dimensions, but as you experienced, these Greeks are tough. Now their bravada/ agitation/ insecurities are leading them to huge bank debts as they have bit into the lure of contemporary glamour and needs. Hardly anyone has an afternoon siesta anymore as they are stretching beyond their means to survive but trying not to show it. The once-proud family fields now are dead with the chemical promise of empty harvest. Villages have been abandoned to migrant Albanians/Bulgarians as the big cities are the mirage of a better life. We remain as caretakers for my mom. Not sure where in the world are next step will be. Our small plot of land on a small island in Fiji remains as a final shelter from the storm. Community of like minded at at least tolerant people is still important in the process.

To: Acharya S
You know sometimes I wish there were a one god, and that one day I might end up in that white fluffy village in the clouds and see him sitting in all his glory and all that bright light, that way when I run up to him (or her) and plant a large clenched fist right in the middle of his probably perfect nose and watch it burst in a volcano I might feel a little better. I have seen to many people crying in the street, too many kids in hospitals and too many people walking out of buildings with blood on their faces to think that if he does exist he must be a complete ego manic with a severe personality disorder.
I once watched a guy who had suffered a stroke trying to climb the steps up to a church on a hill in Croatia he was nearly killing himself. He belived that if he made it god might bless and cure him. I bet he didn't figure out that in his way of thinking it was god who did this to him in the first place.

Subject: Not one of those emails from those assholes you deal with all the time
To: Acharya S
..I recently emailed you twice complimenting your work and I also brought Paul LaViolette's books to your attention, especially Earth Under Fire. I'm also the person that sent you the goofy humor "why astrology is better than Christianity".
I just had to show you this, because I thought it may bring you a good laugh. I was searching for a good biography on you to give to a friend, which path I'm trying to change. I believe your books along with Paul LaViolette's books are some of the most important books to follow the esoteric path and debunk mainstream religious thought. I just happened to stumble on this great comical site where you were involved. Gave me a good laugh for starting off my Friday night. I introduced my very intelligent friend to both your books and LaViolette's and he was blown away by the information. We both have great respect for you and are trying to introduce more "free-thinkers" to the truth. My wife is next person to start learning these valuable pieces of information.
I attached my friend's letter he sent to these asses at Tekton site. What a pack a brainwashed, misinformed faith based assholes! I know I sent you information already on Paul LaViolette, but I just came across the best biography on him yesterday and it's attached below. Do you have any books to be released soon and if so could you let me know what your working on? Keep up the great work and I wish you the best! I almost forgot to say, I never looked at your site very thoroughly until the other day. I love your "take no shit attitude from ignorant asses approach", ha-ha.
Acharya, please read this section at the bottom of the link if you don't have the time to read everything. Accomplishments in Archaeoastronomy, Mythology and Esoteric Lore
My friend's letter to Tektonics:
You are so incredibly off base with your comments regarding Acharya S and her ideas. It is painfully apparent you have read none of her books beyond skimming through and picking a paragraph here or there. Had you actually read the book you would have discovered to your horror that the majority of her evidence is gleaned from the records of the church itself and the words of the christian apologists.
The sad truth is most christians wouldn't know the truth if it slapped them in the face. And if it did, I sincerely doubt they would turn the other cheek. Look at what christianity has become, for you yourself are evidently a prime example: adults that choose to believe in fairy tales over reason, reality and the true evidence of intelligence behind the universe. Most so called christians have no idea how far their religion has strayed from the teachings of Jesus....
Jesus has gone from logos to corporate logo. You and your kind are snake-oil salesmen hawking a dishonest product with a smiling Jesus on the bottle.
The Bible is a book of parables and allegory. Look those words up. They do not describe historical fact. Therefore, if you do not understand the symbolic content of the allegory, but, rather, take it literally, any potential wisdom is rendered moot. It becomes a book of silly stories that make no sense in the real world, which is sad. Those who claim the Bible is so important to them do not even really understand its terminology.
Can you please explain the meaning of the symbols used in Ezekiel's vision? Can you make any rational sense from the book of Revelation? Can you not see that these are not descriptions of literal beasts and beings? So what are they? Do you have the answer? If not I suggest you read these books you choose to criticize because Acharya does have the answers, they are logical and do not require you leave your faculty to reason at the door.
Of course, I am wasting words here. You will not allow yourself to see the truth. You have chosen your sad dead end path full of nonsense and imaginary monsters in the form of demons. You have closed your mind to any other possibility. There is a word for that: brainwashed. You have given up the greatest gift given to man, your free will. Instead, you choose not to use your own mind to seek out truth. It is much easier, I'd imagine, to trade it all in for the complete and utter ignorance called faith. Faith is the equivalent of accepting "because I said so" as the answer to all the worlds' mysteries - it is saying, "I don't need to think, I have this book instead". What a waste of a mind no matter how dysfunctional or feeble it may be.
I regret to inform you that the age of this ignorance is passing. Free access to information is helping humanity to slowly escape the bounds of your outmoded views. Eventually, all humans will wake from this very bad dream filled with blood and conquest that has been the age of christianity. They will understand the true meaning of the symbolism at the core of christianity and they will know the truth has been staring them in the face, but they were blinded by the self-imposed stupidity of faith. They will know that choosing to blindly accept the irrational over looking behind the curtain for themselves was an invitation to tragedy.
Have a great day!

...I had a look at your website. There is some interesting stuff there. My thoughts about historical Jesus is that there was a historical Jesus. The "Christ" label was pinned on him long after he was dead. He certainly made no such claim. The reason his legend sounds so much like the legend of Osiris and Isis, the foundation legend of Pagan Egypt, is because Jesus was a Pagan of the Isis bloodline and religion....
The legends of George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, and Daniel Boone outgrew the people, but that doesn't mean the people didn't exist. Isis was a real person. She was a great enlightened being like a Jesus, Buddha, Zarathustra or any other such person. A great world wide religion and global culture was built upon her works and teachings. In Egyptian scripture, the throne hieroglyph that is part of her name, and the throne usually pictured on top of her head identifies her as the mother of the throne. Why would a great empire like Egypt or the United States be built on the works of fictional characters?
In Egypt, the throne passed down the female line. You got to be Pharaoh by marrying the right "daughter of Isis." That is what is behind the fable of Abraham and his Egyptian wife. He had to marry a daughter of Isis to have a legitimate royal heir. That conflicted with the inheritance of his native heritage.
That is what was behind Mary Magdelene. She wasn't just some rich broad that Jesus was hustling for money. She was the grail. He had to marry her to become a king of anything. All of the bloodlines of divine kings who were "descended from the gods" were descended from Isis and Horus. The Pagan primal trinity of gods, Osiris, Isis, and Horus was the source of their claims to legitimacy as "divine kings" who had the "divine right" to rule. Alexander of Macedonia was in Egypt 3000 years later trying to trace his roots to those gods, not Greek gods. He wanted to be one of the gods.
Of course, I don't see things this way at all, but thanks for sharing. People the world over have created myths for a variety of reasons. Was not the great nation of Greece built upon myths? Or was Zeus a real person? The world of mythology is very rich. Are you trying to say that there are no myths?

I am devoted to philosophy and esoteric subjects and have been reading the gamut of works related to Christianity, including Price and Doherty. I have found your book on the Christ Conspiracy very helpful to me. I checked out your web site and have enjoyed the material you have there. I am sure you get a lot of unfair "pot shots" from the established religionists, so I thought I'd send some fan mail to encourage you, like the good Pisces I am.
Another mythicist book I read recently that you may be interested in – "The Messiah Myth," Thomas L. Thompson, 2005. He is a radical theologian of the University of Copenhagen (scholarly, focuses on David and Jesus).
Do you correspond with non-professionals on these topics? I wondered what you thought of Eastern Orthodoxy's "theosis," which is most interesting and seems out of place, but may provide some clues as to all the ingredients in the stew. Not well know in the West, most Western Protestants would faint if they knew the Roman Orthodox Church (as opposed to the Franco-Latin, "Roman Catholic" Church has a practice wherein union with the energies of God was the goal, becoming God by Grace, was the goal. There are aspects of this that sound like Zen Buddhism since once "htheosis"h is achieved, there are no sacred texts, creeds, on scriptures that bind the glorified person as that person is supposed to know God experientially.

Subject: Your book
[In] investigating the idea that the Jesus Story parallels that of the Sun's annual journey through the Zodiac. It kinda does, but not very well.
Though enough of the pieces fit that I see a possible parallel, there are also pieces lacking and sometimes the
timing is off. For example, I equate Jesus entering Jerusalem riding two donkeys with the sun passing the two donkey stars in Cancer (summer), but next Jesus curses the fig tree, which I equate to mid-autumn, leaving an unexplained gap of several months.
However in other places the astrotheological parallels seem to fit and provide an explanation for what otherwise is inexplicable. And crucified saviors existed in many other religions, and those religions are admitted to be based on sun worship, suggesting the Jesus story also has some sun worship in it. Still I've never been fully satisfied that the outline follows solar mythology, as some of it does not fit well, though other parts do fit....
I do think the world could use a book which flatly outright makes 3 points:
1: Jesus never existed. I think most today take the evemerist viewpoint (a word I've not heard outside your two books). I envision the title of Chapter 1 "Jesus Never Existed".
2: Stories similar to that of Jesus already existed in many other religions, (early fathers admit).
3: Solar Mythology was important in other early religions, (for good reason, the annual harvest cycle). And we find many aspects of Solar Mythology ingrained in Christian tradition (e.g. savior born at Christmas). Today with flat calendars and digital watches we never look to the sun to see what time of day it is or to the stars to determine what time of year it is. We can learn from Solar Mythology, because the earth still goes through its cycle of seasons; its still part of our life experience.

Subject: Website comments...
To: Acharya S
I read your website and am very impressed with your arguments relating to mainly Christianity and Islam... I very much agree to most of the arguments as I've seen many preachers going on and on about Heaven and Hell and only 'He' (not a she!) is the absolute Truth...which I was unable to digest... But just curious, are there any articles where you've talked about the problems with Hinduism? I'm asking this because, I'm a Hindu (by birth, but not by personal wish), and I've read about plenty of such similar 'glitches' with the supposed "sacred-scriptures". Is Hinduism such a man-created propanganda as well?
If you had indeed talked about them as well, kindly give me the links.
All of us are ignorant, only about different things!

I'm 65...was 'christian'...raised in the Anglican church, bap'd at 4 months old...as adult tried RC....but, ever since about age 10 I've wondered and sought answers that I never got from other 'christians'. I used to wonder why, folks who called themselves Christian went to war and killed others who also called themselves Christian. As a kid I wondered how Adam and Eve could possibly populate the eath...where did the wives of their sons come from??
As an adult, I've become a genealogist and by default a bit of an historian..there has long been a theory in genealogy that if we could trace all people to their origin, that we would all end up at the same place!! But it isn't at A&E...the genealogy as in the bible..(it's there twice with different numbers of generations...so the "inspired" word can't even agree on that) of these alleged first humas only goes back to about 4004 BC; however science has shown us that humas were here as long as 150,000 years ago!!
I could go on about discrepancies and contradictions in the bible but won't at this time!!
Reading your Email file was shocking...not surprising though...That these folks call themselves 'christian' and talk that way is beyond understanding...Almost. They don't understand that Blind Faith is a dangerous thing!!
At 65, I am still searcing for answers and finally getting a few...I'm just finishing "Christianity--Truth or Fiction" and then I am off to my Fav book shop to order your book, "The Christ Conspiracy." After reading it I shall be in touch. It's sad that these christian folks don't read or seem to not have read, some history, such as that of Constantine for starters!! Oh well..... All the best girl...

Well shit, I sure did say all that. Shame on me. I was trying to be nice, which I'm not, and should know better.
Why not try teaching some promising monkeys how to run a computer? The crew of monkeys can then screen all your msgs and keep you posted on what is important and what is junk. Clean out 99% of the crap.
Better still, stop jerking the chain of those hopeless christian morons. Then you won't have this stupendous email burden.
How's that for good suggestion?
I guess it's ok to be on the atheist wagon, except if it turns out that view is wrong, the atheist would probably feel a great deal of shame in the life beyond. The people who tell those Near Death Experiences stories are the ones I find most interesting. It is hard for me to discount all those people as kooks. All ages, races, cultures, female, male, report events that have so many underlying similarities. How can all that be faked?
There is no roadmap in this territory. One must just expore for onesself. As soon as you start buying into someone's philosophy, trouble awaits. We have all of recorded history as proof, no?
Sweetie, you're a nice biker chick. Why do you horse around with these christians???????? What do you propose to accomplish jerking their chains? YOu can't improve these nutso's. You can't open their eyes. They're brainwashed from birth with baptism and sunday school.. They'll take that shit to the grave, no matter what you say. They'll just try to kill you eventually. They burned people like you at the stake centuries ago. They'd love to do that to you now if they could. It's a hopeless war. Mabye you just like to fight, eh?

The bizarre "biker chick" remark comes from an article written by John Kaminski. I believe the impression comes from the one time I spoke to John, by phone, the week after my son was abducted and we were in a "safe house" living out of a suitcase while awaiting all sorts of future trials and tribulations. I was completely stressed out and traumatized, and I'm sure the conversation with peppered with epithets. I am surprised that John would not have factored in the severaly adverse circumstances of our conversation. In the meantime, anyone who has heard me on the radio or watched my online video can see that I do not resemble a "biker chick."

I cannot express in words how thankful I am that SOMEONE created a website with very analytical and objective points of view on the non-existence of "god".
Until I read your website, I thought I was the only person to be called "satanic" and "angry" in a debate with a religious person. It almost incredible how they seem to ignore all logic, as if all rational statements are blocked out of their consciousness. The fact that people who actually stop to THINK about what the truth actually is are in minority really explains a lot of the world's events.

I very much enjoyed the ideas presented in your writings. I wish you hadn't been quite so harsh in your presentation at times, but the logic and perception of the workings of the life force are sound. Here is my dilemma. I am a pantheist at peace with my belief in a limitless and omnipresent/ omnipowerful creator. I am also in love with a Muslim minister.
HELP!!!!! We constantly discuss the issue of gender in reference to God and your site outlines well my thinking. But because of your dismissive tone, I am reluctant to have him read it. He has a valid argument that 'God' refers to himself as He in holy scripture. I know that this is likely because the scripture was written by limited humans who could not capture the limitless of God in language. My habibi believes that the Qu'aran was actually penned by God. Any advice you could offer would be much appreciated. I also know that his God is not a sadist, and would prefer simple, clear and logical arguments for a boundless deity and not criticism of a half-perception of 'Him/Her/It/The Great I am."
