I bet the Jews just love this site.
If they haven't already, they will shower you with all sorts of awards and accolades, pat you on the back and tell you what a truly marvellous job (for them) you're doing.
Or are you just another Christ hating Ashkenazi Talmudist, venting his spleen?
Actually, I doubt that "the Jews" do, since I dissect Judaism rather thoroughly. If you like, you may take a look at the quotes about Judaism. My ex-Jewish friends, however, certainly had a hand in helping me, since they too are all for the dismemberment of the wacky and oppressive cult they were born into.

Dear Acharya -
Just wanted to let you know what a great job you are doing. I find you incredibly intelligent and full of wonderful insight. I ordered the video The Naked Truth and truly loved every minute of it. At work I constantly struggle with coworkers on the issue of religion. It amazes me how easily people can be deceived. If you have any other videos you can recommend on the subject I would appreciate the info.

Subject: The Minister who SHRUGS
To: Acharya S
"Anyway the minister was in total agreement with your info and stated that the church knows this but will never admit this - way too much money involved. I asked him why he participates in this deception, and he just shrugged his shoulders and walked away."
The typical response of this church/state religio/political "industry" is just that, to "shrug the shoulders", that is until there develops some significant political support for a true account of why our culture is as it is, then the PARANOIA (which is really a dysfunctional manifestation of denied responsibility) springs to life, and you can expect anything from character assassination to bloodied swords and the destruction of cities and peoples. This systemic destruction of the "whistle-blowers" and their advocates has only been historically possible because of the "concentration" of such like minded individuals into a "group consciousness" (I mean physically in one place, like Jews in a ghetto, or Pagans in the countryside, etc.) The formation of a group consciousness "overmind" draws forth the violence from the majority "groupmind" simply because it (the majority) has been able to discern an "enemy" in physical space. It moves against the "alien mutagen" like T-cells to an infection (not a good metaphor to use when describing an attack upon the voices of sanity, I know, but that is more or less how such voices are looked upon by those who support the status quo).
Anyway, I am thinking (hoping) that voices such as yours, because they are NOT necessarily physically close to those of like mind, will become more potent in their influence, and perhaps, via Internet communication, (and via the natural attractiveness of truth) will "infect" culture in such a way that the "snare net" will fall unnoticed (by those forces governing the status quo) until its across-the-board cultural effect will be unstoppable.
Then they (we) will see that they (we) really are better off for it having happened.
The initial quote regarding the "minister who shrugs" comes from a message regarding my book The Christ Conspiracy, a copy of which was given to a minister, who agreed with its premise yet would likely not reveal the truth to "his flock."

I finished it.
I loved it.
I want to read it again... and again, and again, and again.
Keep up the great work. And, BTW, thanks for the messages/updates you send to your ang fans. Those are great, too. Now I'm on to a short history of Julian the Apostate and then Gore Vidal's "Julian."

I've been involved in a number of religions, including Fundy Christianity. The hypocrisy of all of them eventually dove me away, but I still can't shake the feeling that I need to connect to something in a spiritual way, call it "God," call it "The Force," call it a higher plane, whatever.
I've found that prayer, chants, and casting circles do about the same thing for me - makes me feel better, makes me feel more connected with the universe, lifts my "spirit" up. I strongly suspect that prayers, chants and circles are all ways of achieving the same thing, but what I really want to know is what it is that makes me seek out spiritual experiences. Does everyone do this? Is it part of our human nature to want to believe in something magical? Is this craving for magic the reason why religion got such a toe-hold in the first place? In your opinion can one be spiritual without following religious dogma?
Wonderful, thought provoking, challenging site. You are the sort of person I'd love to chat with over coffee, I enjoy having my world views challenged by someone who can back up their claims. Did I mention I was kicked out of the Fundy church for asking questions instead of accepting everything on faith? <giggle>
Hiya - Thanks for sharing. You have asked some deep questions that require long answers! As you may have discerned, I'm not at all bound by the third-dimension, so I don't have the same degree of skepticism displayed by "atheists," etc. Although, if someone mindlessly yacks on about "God," I will demonstrate to them that the typical concept of "him" is not only sexist but also impossible, in that "God" by definition must be omnipresent, which means "it" cannot be a giant man or other creature separate and apart from creation. That is basically all I say about the subject. And to quote Joseph Campbell, "The idea of God as the absolute other is a ridiculous idea. There can be no relationship to that which is absolute other." It is probably that most people wish to have spiritual experiences, the definition of which varies widely. I understand the craving to see beyond the third dimension, and I have done much journeying outside of this realm. Consciousness-expansion may be the goal. However, most religions are actually anti-spirituality, in that they wish you merely to believe in other dimensions without experiencing them. In ancient times, one was free to use plant-drugs for the purpose of experiencing other dimensions. Naturally, the fascistic monolithic religions are against this, because they would no longer have the masses in thrall; hence, such plants are "outlawed." As they say, whatever turns your crank. I too have engaged in interesting rituals, mostly for the experiment. Usually nothing came of it.
The only problem is with demented people who insist that the "spiritual" or "religious" practice they are enthralled by is THE ONLY WAY and that everyone else must follow it or go to hell. Such is simply stupidity, egotism and megalomania, the exact opposite of spirituality. Yes, it seems that magic is essentially what humans are after. The first religions were created in order to appease perceived supernatural forces. This voodoo or that was developed - presto! Modern religion. Of course, then there is fear. People fear that if they stop doing their voodoo, the world will crash in on them. And perhaps they have had some traumatic experience that they took as a sign of punishment from "God" for not following whatever cult they've been brainwashed into. It is a sad state of affairs, but so it is with the human race. When one is truly free, however, one may not like rote and ritual because it is a scheduled affair (how I hate schedules!). On the other hand, it is rather arbitrary what one might consider rote and ritual. My ritual for years has been to study and write - many people would not like that at all, as it requires discipline and is a lonely path. However, I love it, and it does produce "magical" results.
Yes, I certainly know for a fact that one can be "spiritual" and not follow religious dogma. To me spirituality is the outward expression of a realization that All is One, which is a bit Buddhistic, and it may be that I would not have had such a realization if I had not studied the various religions, particularly Buddhism. Once that experience is attained, however, one becomes liberated from dogma.
Very sweet of you. And I always like those who rabbleroused in church.

you are a fuckin retard!!! 8P
suck my dick you fuckin bitch!
oh by the way i don't agree with one word you said and i have about another 3 or more billion people that dissagree with you. Ya know majority rules. Oh by the way if it wasn't true tell me why so many people died for christianity in its early days. Oh wait or is that not true? was our world history all made up too? :) haha your a fuckin moron!!
How charming! A fine example of a sweet, loving and sane Christian. AND of how religion causes mental illness and idiocy. Sexual hangups, as well. A "Gay Nazi for Christ," perhaps? "Gay," because they are fervently enamored with a giant man in the sky, whether "God the Father" or "Jesus." "Nazi" because they are so fascistic and tyrannical, threatening everyone with all sorts of bilious bullshit. In fact, after attacking me viciously, I've had a couple of these characters admit they were "homosexual," which in their case means they are also misogynistic, i.e., woman-haters. And I say in their case because my gay friends are NOT - if they were, they wouldn't be my friends.
BTW, THIS is why people despise Christianity and find Christians to be so unpleasant. Also, Christians only make up 27% of the world's people. So, by your own illogic, you lose.

Your book THE CHRIST CONSPIRACY was an excellent read. I found it to be a verification of ideas I've had for some time now. Thank you for the courage to share such ideas with all who are more than ready for same. I just have one basic problem. While you book doesn't deny some sort of God-force, my question is why don't psychics (who seem to have access to Universal Consciousness), such as Edgar Cayce, pick up in their readings that Jesus the Christ was not historical. He seemed to be correct in so many instances (reading client's illnesses from a distance and prescribing the correct remedy as well as accurate in some prophesies) - why was he so traditionally Christian in his beliefs? Any comments you may have on this would be appreciated.
It is a good question regarding psychics. The fact that they don't realize Jesus Christ to be a mythical entity creates doubt about their purported skills and the existence of "God" or the "Akashic Records," or whatever. Oddly enough, I was recently perusing a newish book, Edgar Cayce On the Millennium, by a friend of mine, Jess Stearn. It's chock full of Lordy and Jesus talk. It is evident that Edgar Cayce, who was raised a devout Christian and remained one throughout life, was interpreting through his own psyche and programming. I have seen his efficacy and accuracy debunked fairly adequately. A "psychic" in another culture/ideology, such as Hinduism, would not pick up Jesus Christ at all but would probably speak of Krishna, Vishnu, Ganesha, etc. It's all conditioning.
