Hi, I just want to tell you how much I enjoy "The Christ Conspiracy", "Suns Of God", your website, and that you should be proud of your work. I'm happy that you don't let the idiots bring you down. Please keep up the good work.

PS: I have given copies of your books to my 17 year old daughter not only for the information, but because I think you a positive example of a scholar and intelligent woman.

I gave my presentation on Astrotheology for the local branch of the Theosophical Society last Wednesday, and it was very well received.... What I did was begin reading SOG on page 26, Astrotheology of the Ancients, and read until page 35 to the heading, "The Gods Revealed." I then digressed from your material and read the part about the lighting of the sacred of fire to the god Agni at dawn from Arthrew Drews's book, The Christ Myth. After that I ended with reading pages 154 - mid 156 under "The Son of God is the Sun of God" from TCC. As previously stated, those attending were very much receptive to what I had to say. I had before extolled the virtues of your books to them when I bought both of them for the lodge library, but was for the most part it went into one ear and out the other then. After last Wednesday, I do believe much interest was peaked for
them. I'm starting with Solar worship, then the Zodiac, Moon worship, and ending with Stellar worship. Later on, based on much material from your book and others (Barbara G. Walker's included), I am going to do a series on Comparative Religion talks for the group.

I just listened/watched your wonderful interview on BBLC. It was nice to have a face to associate with your words... and it was touching to see [your son] sleeping on your lap. I read The Christ Conspiracy several years ago and am looking forward to Suns of God. I hope you continue doing your important work and that it brings you satisfaction as well as economic freedom. ...for what it's worth, I'll make one more comment based on my personal reaction to seeing you on the video. I hope I can articuclate this properly.

Up until seeing the video, I had only seen the younger pictures of a you on your site. They obviously show a very attractive fun loving woman but the video showed an added sense of maturity that the earlier pix do not get across. That definitely lends creditbility to your words, AND actually adds to your already attractiveness. I think people like myself who are very visual appreciate the more mature look since that is more easily associated with serious research and writing. Your beauty, Acharya, lies not in your youth but in the peace and wisdom in your eyes and smile ...which grows with age.

Hello, I thought you might appreciate a carbon copy of a mention of your Christ Conspiracy book in a recent paper of mine. It was a wonderful read, and I am in awe of your career and accomplishments.

Thank you! I appreciate your inclusion of my work and your kind regards. Your language is certainly sophisticated. I wonder where you have submitted your paper--is it for school or on the net? Just so you know, should you encounter the common hostile reaction to my work and that of Graves, my follow-up work Suns of God backs up most if not all of my most germane points, as well as vindicating Graves from the vitriol tossed his way. Actually, they have tried to refute his work many times, and even "freethinkers" have attacked him rigorously. Suns of God shows that his most contentious assertions did not originate with him, as his critics have charged. I wrote Suns in large part so I wouldn't leave good folks like you hanging in the wind with the critics. I think you will enjoy Suns of God, particularly in view of your estimation of Christ Con!

Wow! I must say, I'm surprised to hear from you in just a matter of hours. You are quite the celebrity to me, so you'll have to allow me just this brief gush: I'm very gratified that you read that article of mine. ;-)

To answer your question, it's more for net debate---a thread starter. The best thread starters, I find, are the aces: the tennis serves that the Christian sheep don't even get a piece of. The boldest of them, though, often do step up to the plate. I find that debating with opponents helps me to strengthen my own work. I've always found your well-documented work to be great ammunition in such debates. Also, I've always felt about Graves' work that he was standing on giant's shoulders, that his most contentious assertions are well grounded in documented fact, but then I agree with your comment on page 161 of Suns of God in which you suggest that "more careful citation on his part would have avoided much of the problem." Never have I felt, though, that any of the Christian apologists' vitriol (truly, no other word for it) in response to Graves has amounted to adequate rebuttal in 130 years. LOL ;-)

Subject: do you read these messages?

...yet it persists. Take Arkansas. For each meth lab that goes down a convert for the local Christian church arises. Look at W., a late bloomer. Most of us watched our drug-addled contemporaries undergo Christ-conversion in their 20's. W. held out until nearly age 40. A remarkable happenstance. It's amazing that nearly two thousand years of human history on a big chunk of the globe have been subjugated to such trivial, particular prattling. Error. It seems that our rational quest for truth is centered on the minimization of errors. Look at scientific instrumentation, signal/noise ratios, the evolution of ideas... we can hold erroneous ideas for centuries without batting an eyelash; e.g. the luminiferous ether, classical relativity transformations, spontaneous generation, caloric, phrenology, and so on. All errors. And we pay for them. It takes us generations, centuries, to recover from errors; the Germans in WWII still eating their hearts out over what the hell they let loose, we in the US trying to undo the heritage of slavery, etc.

Anyway, I was just wondering if you're listening. I found your fascinating site and remarkable compilations while wandering and evading button-down work. It's possible but hard to find engaged minds in these realms.

First, let me say that I'm sorry to see that your mother has passed over; I'm sorry for your loss. She was a very beautiful woman.

I want to tell you of my gratitude and offer a profound thank you for you work. I read your first book, Christ Conspiracy, about 9 mos. ago, and I've just ordered your second book today. I first came across the topic while listening to Timothy Freke and Peter Gandy on a radio show. After reading their two books I was delighted to find other books out there to expand upon the subject, and your book has fit that need very nicely. But it wasn't until I heard you speak on a radio interview, this Nov. (linked on your site), that I got a further look into your person. Maybe I missed something in your book, but on the radio your humility and hesitancy came across strongly. No, I don't mean it critically, rather I got the impression that you were hesitant about speaking on such a delicate subject. I was struck by this contrast to your book. It was also the first time that I've seen that you've probably gotten a lot of criticism for writing the book as well, or I should say, a clue on how much criticism.

Well, just let me say that finding your books (and others) has been like finding diamonds in a box of glass beads. It would take a biography to put this into perspective, but it has had a profoundly positive affect on my life. Thank you for sticking your neck out, for doing the research, and for writing the books! What a courageous soul your are. You are truly appreciated.

p.s. I'm just remembering something I read last night in, Jesus and the Lost Goddess. It's on page 231, footnote number 3 for chapter three. The authors are talking about the "distaste" of Roman society for anything of "...ecstasy, woman's participation and 'cultish' behaviour generally." The paragraph goes on extensively, and gives us what, I think, is the most elemental key to the literalisation of the Christian myth; that of the cultural disposition of the Romans with respect to eastern mysticism. Joseph Campbell was fond of pointing out the division between Eastern and Western mythology, and Freke & Gandy may have hit the nail on the head, so to speak, in explaining the most essential factor in the Roman's motivation for the literalisation the Gnostic tradition, along with the need to quench the revolutionary tendencies of the Christian movement and its destructive power within the empire.

Enjoyed your piece. Two comments: The precession of the equinox would cause less than one day slippage of the equinox or solstice per 3000 years under the current and ancient calendar systems. It was only during the Dark Ages that the calendars were so dis-engaged from celestial mechanics that they resulted in a swiftly moving equinox. In the West this was essentially fixed with the Gregorian calendar change. Thus whether we are in the age of Aires, Pisces or Aquarius the solstice would move little from its present date.

I can understand why the birth of Jesus the Christ or Buddha the Christ or Krishna Christ or another saint, sage or avatar might be associated with a cardinal date - it is a way of honoring and makes memorable sense. I do not understand why the lack of a factual historical birth date would negate the real existence of such a person.

Subject: Proof.
Date: Fri, 09 Dec 2005 21:46:04 -0600

Alright, I'll admit you present some logical arguments on your site as proof that God doesn't exist. But I'm about to show you some proof to the contrary that is far more convincing than mere speculation.

First, I rather doubt you believe in "miracles", am I right? Well, up unti a few months ago, I myself was an atheist. But take a look at this site, please:

Crying statues with actual photographic evidence? A bit hard to dispute that, you must admit. And this wasn't exactly done as a practical joke by pranksters, you can see that it has been occuring recently all over the world.

A bit further down on the same page you will find information about a Bolivian woman named Katya Revas, who claims that Jesus speaks with her regularly....

While it is true that a lot of the things on this site seem rather incredible and imposisble to believe, can you honestly dispute photographic evidence and thousand of eyewitness sightings, people who have actually witnessed these statues crying before their very eyes? Even a person such as yourself would have to admit that it is a sign from a
greater being.

And if that isn't enough, look at this site about a group of 6 people who have been experiencing visits from the Virgin Mary for the last 24 years:

Also look at the pictures at the bottom of the page for photographic proof. Further down, there is actual scientific proof of the apparitions.

The following site presents some very logical scientific arguments about the existance of god:

Here is another site with logical arguments:

The following person's reasoning perhaps isn't quite as strong as the other ones, but is reasonable nonetheless:

You could easily find twice as many websites arguing that god doesn't exist, but they're mostly based on speculation and personal beliefs/opinions. Personally, I believe scientific proof is MUCH more influential. I daresay that the information presented in this email would make the average person believe in god, but just reading through your site I can tell your personal beliefs have an unshakeable foundation. I'm hoping that what I've written to you might at least cause you to re-evaluate your opinion about the existence of god. Hopefully you'll reply, so you can tell me your thoughts about this information.

First of all, my essay "Proof that God Doesn't Exist" is tongue in cheek, so I really don't need to reevaluate my position. But, why is it SO important to you and others that I believe in these things? Is my disbelief going to destroy the cosmos? Then, it couldn't be very powerful or miraculous in the first place.

Secondly, "miracles" such as are outlined here have been allegedly occuring for thousands of years, within a wide variety of cultures worldwide. Does that mean that all the religions of these various cultures are true? Hundreds of statues of the Indian elephant-headed god Ganesha have been thought to drink milk--pious Hindus are as certain of these miracles as are the pious Catholics who believe that statues of the Virgin Mary are weeping blood. Do you think that proves
Ganesha is real?

These types of miracles have abounded in practically every religion of any longevity and even many minor ones. The pre-Christian world was FULL of miracles.

I suppose it's occurred to you that these statues could be fakes? It has been discovered on several occasions that priests have created such statues, putting cow's blood or perhaps even their own in holes within the statues. In ancient Corinth there was a sluice at the Temple of Apollo that priests would hide in. When one of their own poured water into one end, the sluice would divert it, and another priest inside would pour wine so that it would come out the other end. Thus, they changed water into wine. This "miracle" predates the Christian era by at least 300 years.

This woman Katya could be talking to the Great Porcupine in the sky. Whatever is happening around her is being interpreted through a cultural artifact, i.e., Christian beliefs. In pre-Christian times, she would have attributed these things to Viracocha or whatever local god. The same can be said about Fatima or Medjugorje. The point is these things would occur, regardless of the god or goddess du jour, so they do not constitute proof of the veracity of said deity.

Subject: Question concerning religion and good works?

As I was surfing your website, one question came to mind. I was there a few months ago, and I found many of the things you said to be quite discouraging, which prompted me to ask you this now: even if there is no religion at all, no gods or anything of the sort, just human beings living and dying without an afterlife, do you still believe that helping other people is a good thing? Or that it's necessary at all? For example, take the good old example of a dirty, poor man sitting on the street corner, not speaking, simply holding out a tin cup in the hopes that passers-by will give him some pocket change. Is it worth it to give him that fifty cents sitting in your pocket, knowing it will make his life just a little bit easier, simply out of the sake of love?

Thank you very much, Acharya.

Well, of course! Please feel free to help out as many worthy people as is possible. That's one of the major reasons I continue to do what I do, an oft-times thankless task for which I am on the receiving end of seemingly infinite vitriol.

I have just watched the DVD presentation Suns of the Gods and I have to say you definitely live up to all the hype about you I have come across through the years! The real treat, though, turned out to be in the Religious Rants section of your web site. How very relevant! I loved the comment about being the intellectual aspect of Kali, I mean, that's exactly how I feel, imagine the relief! (Well, to be honest, I seemyself more like Loki, but you get the drift) BTW, that guy Mike something, the jesus freak...woa, dude! You hit that one right out of the ball park! I am not sure he deserved such a solid reply, but if it made you feel better, it was worth it. It reminded me of endless debates with fellow psychonauts about shamanism: when the shaman says he gets his knowledge DIRECTLY from the plant itself, you can always find an armchair theorist to say "its a metaphor" or something, and the worst thing is, these types would never touch ayahuasca in a million years...of course, we both know that the shaman say that literally, which goes a long way to explain why the Indians think the gringos are stupid. Which unfortunately is too often the case, but I digress...

I was sorry to learn that you experienced some kind of attack, although in the current atmosphere of "christian" bigotry in the US, its hardly surprising. You have ovaries of steel, you know that? ;))

OK so...I have been investigating various sacred plants - ayahuasca particularly - and the insights I have been getting all point in the direction of McKenna and Narby and the likes, namely that they have an evolutionary effect on DNA. My problem, as you will no doubt understand, is finding corroborating evidence. For some reason, I keep seeing vines/snakes in the Maya hieroglyphs. Most authors I have read so far explain these "snakes" as bloodletting, but something tells me its definitely more like a vine, which in turn could be metaphorically represented as a, what do you think? Any book suggestions? Could these be representations of the "vine of the soul" aka ayahuasca?...

Oh yeah, I am sorry for being so seemingly syncophantic but, that comment about extreme atheists being so fucking rigid and all that...again, I can't think of a better way to say it. Your style is just the kind of straight-shooting, sophisticated, in-your-face-yet-carefully-crafted writing this world needs to pull out of the 2012 ditch ahead of us.

I'm just curious, what's your kin in the Tzolkin?

Date: Sat, 10 Dec 2005 15:13:01 -0600

Does it not at least provide sufficient proof of some sort of afterlife? Also, you're avoiding the information presented on the website with scientific proof. Things like how the earth is too perfect to be coincidental. How if it was even positioned a fraction of an inch in any other position relevant to the sun, life on earth would be impossible. How do you explain such things? You think it is just a great coincidence, or could it have been carefully planned and executed by god? Also, the seers at Medjugorje have been tested and it has been proven that they are not lying, nor suffering from any sort of mental disability, therefore strengthening the belief that what they see must be real. You speak of priests placing cow's blood, or their own blood, in statues to fool people. You must understand that most people who witnessed these things didn't just come in to see a statue with its face covered in blood. They literally saw tears streaming down their eyes. And it's not as if these happenings weren't investigated. For example, the one that occured in a Russian Orthodox church, with a painting of Virgin Mary crying, was closely inspected. They found nothing to suggest it had been tampered with, no puncture holes, anything of the sort. These people saw tears rolling down the painting's face, materialising out of nowhere. You also mentioned the woman Katya. Do you honestly believe it could be possible that she was able to engage in conversation through SOUNDPROOF GLASS if she was not receiving information from some higher being? She clearly stated that Jesus was sitting beside her, speaking to her. She was able to understand what was being said about her through soundproof glass, and able to answer. What does that tell you? You think THAT could possibly be set up? Or the Russian woman, who smeared oil that a painting cried all over her forehead, and was suddenly cured from breast cancer, I suppose you think that was a coincidence too? The way you speak of these miracles being interpreted differently in various religions leads me to think that you believe in some sort of greater being, just not the Christian god, per se. Correct me if I'm wrong, but that's the impression I got from reading your reply.

Subject: A question from someone delighted to have found your websie

I came across your website and have been engrossed all evening so I want to say a big thank you. It has met a deep need.

I come from a Christian background, although most "Christians" would tell me that I am not one of them because I have a different take on it. A very special friend recently broke up with me because of this. The resulting turmoil made me dig deeply into my beliefs and I eventually came to the conclusion that my beliefs must remain true even if it was conclusively proved that Jesus never existed.

I began to realise that answers to my questions were only going to come from archaeologists and people who have studied the Bible in its historical context. Hence my discovery of your website.

Would it surprise you if I, a "Christian", found nothing in your writings that contradicted what I believed and a whole lot that reinforced it? Do you ever hear that?

I have one question: Something must have happened 2000 years ago, something momentous enough to have propelled a small sect into the major world religion that it is today. If not the life and death of Jesus, what could it have been? Does anything in the writings of the first three centuries indicate what it was about Christianity that uniquely attracted so many people to it?

What religious tradition were you raised in, if any? Do you personally have any experience with the supernatural i.e. out-of-body travel, answered prayer, visitation by a deceased loved one, or other? I was very sorry to see the clipping about who I assume is your son. He is a beautiful child, and I pray that he is being well cared for, and will return to your arms. Do you believe in the basic good vs. evil? I think for someone to steal away a child from his mother, or harm a child, that is an evil thing to do. The best way to combat it is through prayer, and even perhaps employ the services of a good psychic or remote viwere to help you find him. Why do you use the name Acharya S? I don't understand that. Is it a Hindu-based name, was it bestowed on you by someone else? Sorry I am an inquisitive person! Well, I wish you the best

My name is a spoof. I took it on to tease the serious, ultrareligious MALE Hindu orthodoxy. It has upset not a few others, of course. "Acharya" is a very common last name, so no one needs to get too hung up on it. My given name means "Gift of God," so perhaps I should compel others to call me by that term.

To: Acharya S

Thank You for all your great kick ass material and I must say you are so good looking! Having been a closet born again pagan and a secular humanist for a few years now after realizing the destructive and divisive nature of Borg religions and the overwhelming Sol-ar (Soul-ar???) similarites to the story of Jesus Christ and most other religious figures, I can really appreciate your efforts to help people free their minds and to break away from of the "Borg Matrix". Being a born again pagan has great advantages as you have 8 nice evenly spaced holidays to celebrate every year. Sure the Christian church tries to call them their own, but they assimilated them (God is Borg and resistence is futile) from the pagans in the first place!

I wish to call to your attention an interesting "coincidence" found in the book of Revelations verse 13:18. This famous, or infamous passage if you will, is the celebrated "Mark of the Beast 666" text. What is very interesting is using Gematria or the number values of the verse section "... and his number is 666". The number that you get is 2,368 which also just curiously happens to be the same Gematria value as "Jesus Christ!".

Now the number 666 appears on the "Magic Square of the Sun" as the sum total of all the numbers from 1 to 36. And each sign of the zodiac is divided into 3 subsections for a total of 36. The ancients saw the Sun as corresponding to the Heart Chakra or center in man. Needless to say fundmentalists would "have a holy cow" if they knew of this really cozy connection between Jesus Christ and the Sun as revealed by the Gematria right out of their own cherished and prized Greek New Testament. A good website with some of this information summarized (and lots of other goodies) is found at

And this idea of Jesus Christ being 33 years old at the Crucifixion is yet another Solar story and a very interesting one at that. You can have a very accurate Solar Calendar relative to the stars if you add 8 leap days every 33 years for a yearly cycle of 365.2424... days. This is more accurate that the yearly 365.2425 day Gregorian system we currently use which we got from the Roman Catholic Church. You could even spread out the leap days over the 8 pagan holidays for a very easy way to remember where on the 33 year cycle you are. But using this more accurate timing system might make people become very suspicious of the Church's story of Jesus Christ and of all the Solar (Soul-ar???) connections!!! We couldn't possibly have that happening now could we.

So just why do we start our year in the dead of our Northern Winter anyway??? Why not in March when the Vernal Equinox is (the start of the astrological year) when you have balanced light and dark all over the world??? It does seem to favor one world hemisphere over the other. And as a sufferer of S.A.D. I do however celebrate the ONE good thing about Christmas --- the days start to get longer!!!

Anyway I wish you Peace, Love and Sol-ace this Northern Winter/Southern Summer Solstice season. Hopefully we will have a future someday when our children or their descendents live in a more enlightened and truly humane world where the Light of Love in everyone's heart will rule and divisions among people will be a thing of the past!!!

Seasons Greetings, Acharya. I found your website about a year ago and visit it often. I am impressed with your research and determination to bring it to public conscience. Your expose' on the Jesus myth has been especially helpful in tieing together some loose ends. Raised a Catholic back in the 50's and having studied to be a priest, my introspection began in the 80's with Joseph Campbell's works. Now I am web-surfing for answers and it has brought me here.

I commend your courage in all this. Being a crusader is never easy. Because of your relentless efforts, others will certainly awaken. I know you are angry with the character attacks and attempts to debunk sound reason. Don't be. The truth will stand and even negative publicity helps further it. Speak for US and know that you are not alone. Best Wishes. Bob.

Thank you...for the pleasant interview you gave at Paltalk.

I read at your site about your tribute to your mother, and it was beautiful. I am sorry for the passing of your mother amidst the other tribulations in your life. You must be one tough lady to have endured these things. I do understand about about domestic abuse.... I myself, rescued one such lady from an abusive situation.

Be well Acharya and show no fear!

with all due respect....hugs from me to you and your beautiful son!

Dear Acharya,

...I suppose what you are going through is akin to what Jews go through with acts of anti-semitism. Why can't people see that we are all God's children and so we should all act like a real family would act - love each other, and be understanding and compassionate, and supportive of one another. It amazes me the Christians that certainly do not act Christian-like, as "Jesus preached."
