Subject: monetary ignorance
To: Acharya S

Dear Acharya,

I have read your rants on religion and find them quite good! Your rants on other areas such as politics and economics, however, show a lack of knowledge. Our problems today stem from banking fraud and thieves in high places. The fraud is perpetuated because the ignorance of the people and their apathy. Here is a short lesson. Money is merely a symbol for goods and services used as a medium of exchange. If you provide no lawful service nor commodity, but yet collect a reward then you are a thief. What happened in 1913 is that the Communists, working through secret societies formed a central banking pyramid scheme to provide nothing but air and get paid for it. What they do is loan non-existent money, money which doesn't exist, blank checks, to the government and charge interest on the loan.

Quite some job isn't it! Loan trillions of nothings and charge interest on air and make the government themselves print out the cash. What they did with this interest is use it to buy out both sides of the political coin so that no matter who you vote for, they own the politician. And once they had their politicians in power they began creating phony wars because any nation at war will go into bankruptcy to protect themselves and they made huge amounts of money from the war loans and the fact that they bought out the media companies stock. So as long as the body bags rolled in, they made even more money which they've since used to monopolize society and kill in other areas such as medicine.

The only way that people can become free from money is by becoming producers of real money themselves. You for instance, produce video tapes and books, and every book sold is real money as compared to their phony fiat inflation schemes which have no backing. You are producing your own wealth which if properly marketed and applied could make you extremely wealthy over the course of a lifetime. I am an artist and I definitely plan on becoming a wealth power center in my lifetime. And once I become free I have a plan to make others free and end war. This plan I've put up on my site along with more information on money, etc. The plan is under my art and info column at The Art-Conspire-Eye-See. Take a second look at your financial advice and see who it benefits within this current Central banking NWO.

[I am aware of these facts to some extent. Like so many others, I hate the whole money thing. I do, however, appreciate the info and that others are working on this problem.

... My aunt L is quite ill and not expected to live much longer. So instead of waiting for the usual family reunion, several of us decided to visit the ol' farm .... My other aunt, B, is married to uncle D, who is the local Baptist Minister. For some strange reason, only known to aunt B, she blurts out in front of everyone that ever since uncle D was "saved," he has been like a Borg! Of course every started roaring with laughter. And I immediately thought of your web page, and the Borg. I do believe that some cosmic subliminal message is getting through, or Aunt B has been sneaking around the internet with no one the wiser. Perhaps she has OD'ed on "Star Trek" ...

Just wanted to say, I agree with most of what you had to say ... the guilt trips that religion lay on you can literally KILL YOU!

I'm 40 yrs old, divorced mother of two young boys and was raised Roman Catholic. However a few years ago I too started asking questions ... now I'm considered the black sheep and the "CRAZY ONE" in the family.

Oh well, I can sleep at night ...

Peace to you

I WANT TO THANK YOU FOR THAT EXTREMELY INFORMATIVE WEBSITE. MOST PEOPLE I KNOW COME FROM A HIGHLY RELIGIOUS UPBRINGING, AND THEY WILL HAVE A GOOD TIME READING THIS. I HAVE PASSED IT ON TO THOSE VERY PEOPLE, WITH A FOOTNOTE SAYING, "DON'T KILL THE MESSENGER IF YOU DON'T LIKE THE MESSAGE" (THESE ARE "GOOD" CHRISTIANS WANTING TO BURN ME AT THE STAKE).

THIS WAS VERY TIMELY FOR ME AS I HAVE RECENTLY STARTED QUESTIONING THE CONCEPT OF RELIGION AND CHRISTIANITY.

LIFE IS A LIFE LONG JOURNEY OF LEARNING, AND DOESN'T STOP ONCE YOU GET A DEGREE.... IT DOESN'T EVEN STOP WITH DEATH, CONTRARY TO POPULAR BELIEF. BUT THAT'S A WHOLE OTHER STORY.... ONCE AGAIN, I THANK YOU FOR PASSING THAT ON TO ME.

I first started to question the Jesus myth (the greatest hoax in history) after reading John M Allegro's Sacred Mushroom And The Cross in 1992. At the time it seemed little more than a good cerebral exercise. Since then I have made further investigations including checking the New Testament again. After the Gospel stories there is the recurring theme of having Christ inside you as opposed to discussion about the Jesus character. As for Josephus - if he had said "He is the Messiah," he would have been put to death by Vespasian. I stumbled upon your work after inputting "Soma, Amanita Muscaria" - two fascinating subjects. Origins Of Christianity consolidated a lot of my original findings and introduced me to many more. I cross-referenced Horus, Buddha and Krishna with Microsoft's Encarta, and it all stacked up nicely. I am not a theologian - I am a bank teller with an interest in the human race for which your web site is ideal. There is so much I would like to discuss but I appreciate you are busy. This is just a note from England to say your work is appreciated and I look forward to reading the book - if it ever gets published here. I mean, look what they did to Allegro.

Best wishes,

Hi -

I discovered your site and read all the articles as well as the emails. You were right about people liking to read them and feel comforted that there are many of us who feel the same even if we don't know each other and gather in groups. I was not raised with religion because my parents thought it was too dangerous to expose children to, but I have read extensively about many of them. I've always been baffled by discussions I try to have with friends about religion because they spout what they were taught but they've never thought about what they actually believe. It's just very sad to me that so many people are incapable of using their brain. Thanks for your work!!

... fuck, you do a much better job than I could, but you do what I would if I had the "credentials."... I can say I love your perseverance and fortitude, and I can tell ya that your day will come - ain't no doubt about it!! I would be manic and flipped, my chest would hold despair, and I would have water coming out of my eyes. Thank you for "religiously" being the articulate one that I wish I were. Thank you for speaking my mind so eloquently. I do not worship you in the commonly held definition of prostrating myself in ceremony, but I do worship you in the archaic meaning of "having the character of" ...

I love your spirit (which is the real you!)

Hello, BEAUTIFUL Acharya!

[Re Zechariah Sitchin ... I was in Barnes & Nobles book store last week, in the metaphysical dept., OF COURSE, and saw that he has now written ANOTHER book ... I always got SUCH a despondent & depressed feeling, in the spirit, when I read his other books. I try to keep up on all the current ones, (of ALL authors), but felt it would be a waste of time & money to invest in that one....

I still haven't the faintest CLUE as to WHY any of us were supposed to come to this planet! I have a friend who has a good theory though - says we have been sent to hell. This is IT, only we just don't KNOW IT! HA! With all the OTHER wild theories, from the Pleiadians supposed to come & help us, to the religious fanatics waiting for Armageddon & the Rapture, to the Jews claiming to be the CHOSEN PEOPLE - I guess his theory is as good as ANY, huh? All I know is that MY LIFE has been PAIN since conception ...

Do you believe in, or adhere to ... ANY of the American Indian spiritualistic teachings? And are you familiar with the RUNE LANGUAGE, and if so, what are your THOUGHTS on RUNE? I have, believe me, investigated everything, but still haven't found any, really concrete ANSWERS to my zillion & zillions of spiritual questions. However, THIS "ole Jew" is HARD to FOOL. People call me everything from a backslider, to a reprobate, to a bitch! HA! Some of the teachings "religions" pawn off on people are SO RIDICULOUS & SO PREPOSTEROUS, that even my DOG "knows better."

If you ever want a really good laugh, tune your T.V. in sometime to that Christian station, TBN & watch this woman named Jan Crouch! She has Tammy Faye Baker BEAT all to pieces! It WOULD be funny, except for the way they all are CONNING all those poor, hurting, and DECEIVED people, the audience/congregations, out of all their MONEY....

Addressing the issue of "JEWS" - the rich, hot-shot & especially the religious ones can be SO POMPOUS that they make one want to BARF!!! On the other hand, some of the poorer ones, especially the immigrants from Russia, are just about THE sweetest & most humble people there are. They are ALL brilliant! So, it just DEPENDS on which caliber you are thrown with. The ones who THINK that they are the "chosen people" are just like all the other religions ... all (each one) THINKS that "they" (alone!) are "God's only TRUE church." I find it all SO nauseating and SO TIRESOME & SO EXHAUSTING!!! ...

DON'T be discouraged!!! You TRULY ARE a REAL INSPIRATION, so continue to HANG IN THERE!!! I'll BET, when your book FINALLY is printed and released, it SELLS like HOT CAKES!!! I think there are A LOT of people "out there" who are WONDERING/SEARCHING, etc., and will buy a book & read it, even if they NEVER let their church, synagogue, family, etc. KNOW they have doubts about their religious faith!!! I LOVE the title of your book - and, Honey - IT WILL FLY... eventually!!! ...

Did you hear this week, that NOW the religious body is claiming that the scientists are saying the Shroud of Turin really did date back to Jerusalem in the "time of Jesus" (When was THAT supposed to be? 2000 or 1 million years ago? Ignorance personified!!!) Some people who are supposed to be SO righteous & SO honest will resort to ANYTHING to steal money from the poor!!! ...

... just wanted to write you a little note, to ASSURE YOU that you AREN'T ALONE & you are VERY APPRECIATED!!!

... And, I'm not even really SURE that I am convinced that an age of light ever, really WILL come to planet earth!!! ...

So, HANG IN THERE...and KNOW I LOVE YA!

[Thanks, love. I do find the spirituality of various Native American groups to have great merit. I don't know very much about runes ...

Thanks, for your site, I am just a truck driver, and a college drop-out, but I am an avid reader, and even though it seems a coincidence, a lot I have been studying has pointed me in the same direction as some of the subjects on your site. I have just finished the Dead Sea scrolls, and read the Bible again. I wonder if we should be afraid of when they come back, I mean us freedom-loving people. It is an epidemic, the small minds most people have. I feel so all alone. Glad you're there - thought I was going crazy.

Dear Acharya S -

I hope this gets to you. I am a 25-year-old father of four with two jobs, and I am also going to school full-time. I was visiting the Art Bell web site and stumbled across your web link. I have been religious on and off since I was old enough to walk and always had questioned whether or not everything that I was hearing in church was correct. Since starting college full time, I have opened my eyes and mind to new ways of thinking. The first of those is the journey to find out (for myself) whether or not the whole idea of God/Jesus is true. I have heard all sides in one form of another and I need to find out through further investigation whether or not everything I have been taught to believe is true. Well to my point: I am very happy to say that your book The Christ Conspiracy, The Greatest Story Ever Sold will be my first step in that journey. I also want to reassure you that I, unlike most people, will read your book objectivity and with an open mind, because the last thing that I want to do (again) is to start to follow another group of believers on a search for truth that has no beginning and no end. I am very happy and glad that there is a person who is willing to create a book that looks past the rhetoric and jargon to try to find the truth about this "untouchable" subject. This book is the exact thing that I have been waiting for to bring together myth, legend, and fact into one compilation. And yes, I did buy your book through Amazon.com.

Your new fan ...

I am a visionary also. I have always felt outside of society.... I have always felt or sensed an interconnectedness or something beyond what is known, but religion and all that I knew could never come close to it. I know you understand this also.

Intuition and intelligence cut through the crap very easily. Society has attacked those of us who know that they are mere sheep following the wolves. They become the wolves themselves and attack those with insight.

I truly love your web site and will have to read much more.

... Humanity has lost its interconnectedness and togetherness. Individuality has become selfishness and control. Victims are the most powerful controllers in our society. Isn't it strange how the very women who claim men are abusing them are the people raising little boys to become men.... I have decided to commit my life to "over-turning" the current self-destructive society. I have a purpose and much to do which seems very much in line with your thought. Thank you for your insight. It will help me on my journey.

I have been studying Taoism and wisdom in addition to personality typing. I believe the thinking of Carl Jung and the Taoists are much in line with the natural order of things rather than the false order of brainwashing, sexism, racism, domination and control. Having an "open heart" is being fully human. The Taoists are the closest I have found to the truth so far. There isn't a complete truth as the Bible-thumpers want us to think. The concepts of happiness, joy, awareness, love and acceptance seem to be the real keys to humanity....

I am eager to read more of your web site. Web site with insight. I like that.

Thanks so much.

You are right. My first impression was that you were male.

It is wonderful to know there are women who actually decide to use their brains for something besides manipulating men to get a free ride and be victims.

I bet some women hate you. Kind of like black people calling Conservative blacks "Uncle Toms." I hope you are an inspiration to women all over the world....

I'm raising two daughters by myself and hope they find more strong minded women as role models. The whole idea that men are somehow smarter and should run things is very stupid. I don't like people teaching my daughters to accept that crap....

... Do you think that as society becomes less and less livable that the dysfunction results in more intuitive type people who are able to question society until there are enough to change it? Civilizations have risen and fallen because they failed to change more than likely. Could our culture be at the crossroads too? Could people like us be the agents of change? A large number of intuitives result from having dysfunctional childhoods or early adulthood.... Maybe we intuitives could realize that they keep order so we can be free to think.... Maybe, we are the ones that should be in charge of change. Change scares them. They are mean and say things because they are as you said - scared like sheep. We need to also make them feel that it is okay so they will follow us. Once they realize we are the shepherds and their old beliefs are the wolves they will run to people like us for direction. Don't some people who fear you also ask you for advice when their limited means of role filling cannot solve their problem? That happens to me all the time...

The world is more of a self made prison for most people. That is sad. That is their problem

Thanks again. You are very wonderful, brilliant, insightful and brutally frank and loving.

Yes, sometimes the truth hurts. Love allows pain when it results in longer lasting love where long-lasting pain would otherwise take over. You truly have compassion for the greater good who are ungrateful. Bless you and all you do.

P.S. I'm proud you are able to stand up to the feeble, close-minded and stupid people in this world. More of our voices need to be heard.

Hey!

You have an awesome site - today was the first day I've visited it. Someone suggested you for a question I had. Can you give me any examples of Protestants persecuting scientists? A friend of mine claimed that Roman Catholics were the only Christian sect that persecuted scientific thinkers, and I say that's totally inaccurate.

Just off the top of my head, I can think of Kepler's mother, who was imprisoned in a Protestant dungeon because of her views and her son's views. They accused her of being a witch.

I'm trying to come up with some more examples to research. Any input you could give would be helpful.

Again, thanks for the site, it's fun. I will pass it on.
