To:  Acharya S
Subject:  Thank You

I just wanted to say thank you for writing this. I have been looking for something like this for a long time, but I couldn't find anything to disprove the Christian Theory.  All I had were my beliefs.  I'm fourteen, and I've had a lot of questions on this subject and the majority of the answers I get are along the lines, "Faith" or "Faith is the answer," but that wasn't good enough for me. I do, however, still believe in God. No matter what my reasoning tells me, I still do and will for a longtime to come. Believing in him is the only thing that gets me through depression  sometimes. I'd need someone to talk to, and He's the only one there.

Thanks again.

I loved and printed your words to show to other people... and you talk words of WISDOM, and WISDOM is the word of "god."  Kisses, and I was surprised u were a woman, and happy also.  What a woman!

Dear Acharya S:

Your website is EXCELLENT, particularly your essays on anti-Christian themes.

Sites like yours are essential if we are to debunk the "disease" called Christianity.

THANKS,  and please let us hear more from you.

PS  (Damn, you look good in those cut-offs.)

Great site, I'm glad someone finally got one up. I viewed the Naked Truth videos and was "set free" from Christian fundamentalism.  I never fit in too well anyway, asked too many questions.

Anyway, I'm reading your site and links, and will recommend it to others.  Thanks for the effort, keep up the much needed and great work!

I just stumbled onto your site through Robert Morgan's.  FANTASTIC!  God is Borg... I love it!  Here's a few more quotes for you:

              Millions of innocent men, women, and children, since the introduction of
              Christianity, have been burned, tortured, fined, and imprisoned, yet we
              have not advanced one inch toward uniformity.  What has been the effect of
              coercion? To make one half of the world fools and the other half hypocrites.
              -- Thomas Jefferson

Religious bondage shackles and debilitates the mind and unfits it for every noble enterprise.
-- James Madison.

Dear Sir or Madam,

I offer my sincerest thanks for your having written "The Origins of Christianity."  My head spins, having only now finished reading it.  Thank you for providing the most logical, informative, satisfying explanation I've yet heard.

Thank you, Acharya, you don't know how helpful you have been. I had to a report on the 'idea of Satan' and was totally lost on the subject. YOU have the only site with any findable, usable, useful, and reliable information about the roots of Satan.  Your entire site was a treasure trove of information!  I cannot thank you enough for saving me from utter destruction.  Thank you....

P.S. Do you know how many people have websites devoted to some "real interpretation" of Satan? Thousands!  Finding yours was like a needle in a haystack, but a valuable needle at that.

I have been coming back again and again to your web site since I first stumbled across it a few weeks ago.  Your writings are quite-to-the-point.  I can see how you would get a lot of hate mail from those with a strong religious mentality, but I find your writings to be quite educational AND entertaining at the same time.  You have written many things that I have thought, but you actually have the data to back up what you say.

 I have been reading the Old Testament (Septuagint actually) for my personal education - it IS very brutal and perverted.  It is really amazing that people swear by it (probably because they haven't read it).  If I don't go schizophrenic before I finish it, I will look into reading the New Testament - the oldest version I can find.  At least then I can say I have done some homework and made an informed decision.  And I can have some really good debates with Christians....

Anyway, I just wanted to say thanks for the great website.  Keep up the great work and enjoy life!

Subject:  web page

Hi, don't want to be a childish cheerleader, just wanted to say thanks for your page.  Having lived in the heart of the bible belt all my life, and being a person of intelligence, I have battled with the absurd notions of the locals on the subject of religion for years, and have never been able to put into words so well what is so obviously the truth as you have.  I have always believed that what is now mythology was once religion, and what is now religion will one day be mythology.  To base our laws and social values on Christian ethics really pisses me off.

Thanks again, great page, strange but interesting links.  I enjoyed it.

Your web page is a masterpiece.   Yes, Christianity sucks + Jesus never existed.

But Buddhism + Hinduism are bullshit too.   It's just that our western guilt complex + sense (latently racist, no doubt) that those "weird-ass orientals are just crazy enough to know somethin' we don't" leads us to give credence to that nonsense.

Look, critics of eastern religions + agnostics were just as vigorously expunged as critics of Christianity;  + the really "smart guys" of the east, admitted off the record that it was all horseshit ... but it was necessary to keep the "rabble" toeing the line.

Sound familiar?

Best wishes,

Subject:  Your Page


I just wanted to write and thank you for your essays.  I have read and enjoyed most of them so far.  I particularly enjoyed your essays on the pagan origins of Christianity, which agrees with my own theories as well.  I also liked your picture (are you single, by the way?).  Most of the Agnostics, atheists, and freethinkers I have known have been male for some reason.  It is very enlightening to also get a dissenting woman's point of view about the Bible.  I sometimes forget just how nasty that book can get on the subject of women's rights.  Anyway, thanks again, and keep up the good work.

I heard you on Art Bell and fortunately wrote down your Web page address.  I just finished reading the first Acharya Gospel - "What is God"?  Fantastic!  Thank you for reminding me of what I'm missing!  I feel like I've finally found that "something" I've been searching for!

Then I saw your picture - and again I was taken!  Such a mind deserves such beauty!  Tell me that you are in the videos and I will buy them!

[I was on Sightings, not Art Bell, but I certainly like the suggestion.  Anyone else who wants to hear me on Art Bell can write to him at

Subject:  Well Said!

I listened to you last night on "Sightings On The Radio" as you were interviewed by Jeff Rense, and I was positively impressed by your candid expression of what you have discovered and the clear focus on the essence of your findings.  After reading from some of your essays on your WWW site, I want to say how impressed I am by your feel, as it were, for the writings of the patristic Greek Fathers, Eusebius, et. al., and I want to let you know that I share what you espouse; just not as well-researched or eloquently stated.

You particularly caught my attention with your grasp of the concept of what the Eastern Orthodox call "theosis," and the fact that the "Created Cannot Comprehend the Creator!"

Thank you for taking the time to read this, and I feel that you should be invited back to "Sightings on the Radio" for a series of programs.

[Thanks. Anyone else who feels that way should email Jeff at

... i guess you hear this all the time but.... while reading your essay on the origins of christianity i was picturing a white haired old man with glasses slipping down his nose smoking a pipe or something like that ....not realizing how cheezy my assumption was until i got to your picture page....

..."The Naked Truth" led me to you... when my web site is fully operational i would like to add a link to your page... also i host a public access program ...i would like to use your "god is borg" as a prop... being raised southern baptist in the buckle of the bible belt (tennessee) & not subscribing to the local forced hysteria (christianity) i find your essays & commentary to be both refreshing & enlightening... thanx for the good read.

I consider myself to be Taoist/Buddhist.  I have been on the journey to find truth that is really truth.

I was surprised at your insight toward Buddhism (Tibet) and the Nazi connection (back in World War 2).  Maybe the result of they're current suffering (Tibet) is only Karma (cause and effect).

I plan to read and understand your essays on your web.  This is the type of information I thirst for....

Thanks to people like you we grow toward enlightenment.

I just looked over your webpage, which I am going to add to my favorites list.  Great job on the page by the way.  I must say, I really enjoyed a lot of  your views and ideas about religion, but I am really impressed with most of  the  topics you list on your webpage.  I have heard in some circles that some of us souls travel here and come from the same schools in other realms.  ... so, I continue to search for to meet those individuals who are of like mind, of open mind and who have the desire to take in as much as life has to offer....  Life is a circle, when once we meet, ‘tis the second  time the circle completes.

Thanks for putting up such a great webpage, very informative.

Enjoyed your recent visits to Hattiesburg, Ms and 96.5 talk radio with Rick.  I listened both Friday evenings and must say you comported yourself quite well when confronted by some of our less enlightened residents.  I will order the tape and look forward to you forthcoming book.
