I agree with your positions on religion. The question is how to wake these herd-animals up and get them to think for themselves. Complete disruption of any critical-thinking faculties is an obvious hallmark of blind-faith. I am honestly amazed that, on the cusp of the 21st century, billions of people still cling to these ancient, destructive memes. With the former Soviet Union selling their arsenal off to the highest bidder, these fanatics may soon have the means by which they could bring their "jihad" home to the West.

Without hesitation I encourage you to persist in following the Apollonius thread.  I am convinced this holds the key to the central mystery of the origin of popish Romanism and its vast bureaucratic agendas.

You seem to have the right empathy or chemistry with these issues to successfully convey into public evaluation the concept that the Church arose out of a scramble to save the world from the avatar of synthesis by creating a spiritual black hole, indeed something for which to solicit forgiveness. Your writing combines impeccable research, restrained yet robust and comprehensive rationale, and brazen implications patiently suggested in an understated, unglamorous tone.

When less mature I fancied authorship.  Now I know my role is behind the scenes.  But I do want to interact and provide stimulation for those whose role involves exposure.  There is much that deserves sharing - elaborating - regarding the world teacher [Apollonius whose life was extensively chronicled and whose mortality remained unknown.  Perhaps the greatest of his miracles is that we still can have so much information about his life after the campaign to eradicate every trace of his bestowal, beginning at Alexandria where began the turning upside down of the word.

Very pleased that you present me this opportunity to offer encouragement in the most emphatic and concise manner I can manage.  I look forward to news of your activities.

Dear Acharya,

… I just saw "Inherit The Wind," from the taping I made of the network broadcast.

Yes, most have heard of Thomas Paine.  How many have actually read him?

Are you aware of female circumcision in Africa? Where did people come up with these ideas? I see people who have pierced their tongues, and I reel in horror. Just biting it accidentally is bad enough. But to deliberately pierce it is inconceivable to me. And then there are those who practice scarification.  Where does it end?  I once saw on "Sally Jesse Raphael" a woman who was so into performing fellatio that she had all of her teeth pulled out. Really. Humanity? Insanity!

Isn't growing old a terminal illness?  I mean, it will kill you, eventually. :-)

I like the Libertarian view in regards to suicide and medicines. With the right drug, mainly barbiturates, you would experience a minimally traumatic death.  I'm sure having easier access would reduce the number of people who shoot themselves. It would certainly be better for all involved if they didn't have to clean up pieces of brain and blood everywhere. Unfortunately, the U.S. government thinks it's God and controls or bans certain drugs. Marijuana is bad but alcohol isn't? I have a book on suicide.  According to this book, over 200,000 die from alcohol and 400,000 die from tobacco. The author could not find one3/4 NOT ONE3/4 death from an overdose of marijuana!  Sure, some drugs are bad. But isn't it true that illegal drugs are available in prisons? If they can't keep them out of such places, how could they hope to keep them out of the cities? They can't. Prohibition (of alcohol) failed miserably. And Prohibition Part II will end the same way. There is big money being made in illegal drugs.  Perhaps they don't want to decriminalise it because government and organized crime are interlinked. Or am I being paranoid?

Ever see the film "Defending Your Life"?  In my opinion there was more joy in that movie than in "What Dreams May Come." And no Hell… :-) At least all the food was delicious (and free), you could eat all you want and not get sick or gain weight!

Oh, I am now reading a book, called Losing Faith in Faith by Dan Barker. Ever hear of him? He says that he was surprised to learn that there is no cross in Christianity. He says that the Greek word (pronounced "stau-ross") is an upright pale or stake, and all translators agree that it is not a cross. According to him it is a Pagan symbol (which your book shows) that was adopted by the church, as was so much more. Interesting that Jesus is always being depicted on a cross when the gospels say otherwise. Or is he wrong?

Subject: a preacher's son knows best

Your site is beautiful!!!

Finally someone with an open mind that is not a pushy freak!!

I am the son of a preacher, which means I have had a lot of religious teachings and background. (Actually studied theology in college due to my disbelief.)

I learned enough in my youth about the bible, Christianity, and cults to make any good father proud... The problem was I didn't buy it and I couldn't figure out why an intelligent man such as my dad did.

He just wants to be happy I guess...he's not a money hungry savior...he just believes.

I on the other hand have gone on a spiritual/information-gathering quest because of my non-belief.

I read a lot of ROBERT ANTON WILSON and PHILIP K DICK among others and turned my life around.... I see things the average person doesn't want to see. I question things the average person doesn't really want the answer to. I see your information and thrive on it. It means a lot to know that it's not just me and 3 of my friends who have this incredible ability to think.... I thought god gave us all the thinking thing...ya know?

Thank you for your brilliant insight to what most don't know as history.

I am the guitarist and singer in a band known as THE JUDAS KISS and I wrote this song along time ago (meaning before I found your site) and I'm fishing for here goes...


we will die for you
we will die for you
we will die because of you
we will lie in shadow
we will wait for you
we will wait for what you breathe
we will suck your symptoms
we will bleed eternally

if you can sin the way we see
then you can reap the bitter harvest

we will ache for you
we will wait for you
we will twist your promise
we will kill ourselves in you
we will mate for you
we will judge in your name
we will change for you
we will question in our prayer

if you can sin the way we see
then you can reap the bitter harvest

could the cross be so empty?
could the lost be so satisfied?
could the brethren in the pew...
be sitting on the wrong side?

… I support you!! And I would like to know your input about the song. It appears on an album entitled DARK STAR (after mysteries with Sirius)...

"..and false prphets shall arise who shall deceive the multitudes.."

Sound like anyone you know?

Hope you enjoy barbecues, your master has certainly prepared you to join him in the eternal fires for your great acts of deception.

The Lord has won, you and your bretheren are making your punishment all the worse for your acts of deceiving others.

I'm praying for you! In the love of Christ the Son, God the Father, and the Holy Spirit. May you be reached by His blessing, and the scales fall from your eyes.

Oh, thank you for the loving message, with its threats and condescension! You've convinced me! Not. Bloody reptilians.

Do not continue to be a weapon for the devil. Turn back and accept Jesus. You are filled by hatred. Fill your heart with love. Then you will get peace of mind.

I love it when people send hateful messages saying others are "filled by hatred." Mirror, mirror, as they say. Glass houses, etc.

To: Acharya S

I must say, sir, your Anti-Semetism discusts me.  The Jews simply happen to have a higher ratio of intelligence than some other ethnic groups. There are other ethnic groups with similar intelligence ratios, such as the Puritans, Koreans, Danes, and Japanese.  Your writings seem to be just a reaction to your frusturation that YOU are INFERIOR to THESE VARIOUS GROUPS.

Subject: Finally

Hello my friend. I thought that you would appreciate some positive feedback.  As always I'm promoting your book and web page.  This was posted by a cyberfriend…

<I was running around town yesterday and happened, at one point, to be near the bookstore.  So I decided to go in and look around for a couple of books I've been wanting to check out.  The first thing I did was ask the information desk if they had The Christ Conspiracy.  She looks it up and "yes" they have a copy, and she takes me to the section it would be in, section is called speculation.  Bwahahahaha.  So I find it and sit down on the floor with it, as I often do in bookstores and libraries. ***** notices immediately that there's a cross on it and says loudly, "Mommy, that's a religious book, why are you buying a book about religion?"  Keep in mind that there is a woman looking through the racks behind me that are the pro-Christian books.  So I explain to him that this book is about proving that a particular religion is a myth like all the other myths. And he says, "Oh, it's a book about atheism."  So we talk about it for a bit while I'm skimming through some pages. The woman behind us never flinched - she actually smiled at A.

Anyway, about the book. I usually browse books before I purchase them. We sat at the coffee shop and ate pastry while I looked through the book.  Was it **** that said you could pick it up just about anywhere to get good info? Well, whoever it was, you were right. I bought, I love it, and I kick myself for not buying it sooner, when L first mentioned it.  Ugh!!! I could have used this so many times.  Yea, I hear you snickering, L ;-)   The way she writes and connects astrology and the bible3/4 just incredible.  I mean I already knew most of it but it's great to read it.  And I know she makes other connections but hey, I just got the book, okay.

Thanks for the recommendation L, even though it took me awhile.  I know I'm going to love having this one in my library.

Hello, I read your book The Christ Conspiracy, and it was utterly amazing.  You covered so much in this one book, I commend you for your work and talents.

I am interested in promoting this book and selling this book through ***** and I would like to know what your bulk rate is.  Thank you.

Thanks! The book in bulk can be purchased through my publisher, AUP.

...I read your book regarding the Christ myth. I gained a lot of insight from your writings. A good site that helped me further is "Skeptics Annotated Bible." It has all the infamous quotations listed by category.

I am a former fundamentalist and JW, so you can imagine how much work I have had to do over the years to deprogram myself. I believe I have finally been successful.

One thing bothers me, and that is, it seems that once your eyes are opened and you see the lie that has been forced on humanity throughout the ages, one becomes silent. I mean in the company of friends and relatives, if you try to educate them about the lies, etc,  you bring down the wrath of these people who cling to their beliefs.

Perhaps the day will come when I have the courage to voice what I know to be true even in the face of great opposition.

I congratulate you with having the courage and the intelligence to enlighten us.

Subject: How sad and pitifull you are.

You have I noticed failed to speak on the volumes of Jewish books available that speak of Jesus in the first century. Of course then there is the subject of the why there was a first century. How about trying to converse about all the archeologists findings that prove the bible. The dead sea scrolls have proven that the books writings have stayed the same for thousands of years. Yes it does take faith, perhaps you might say blind faith. Perhaps you have some sort of idea where we started from? that is Im sure nothing that you would call blind faith. It is sad and pitiful that you have spent so much of your time trying to find God, yet you have looked in all the wrong places. Just a small hint for you,....... He's in your heart.

"Volumes of Jewish books?" Can you name one, please? How is it that your incredible discovery has been overlooked by millions of people, including Christian apologists for over 1800 years? "Archeologists findings that prove the bible?" Again, can you name one please?

It is quite natural for apologists to make things up, as you have done. After all, Christianity and its founder are made up to begin with. And when the sale of their shoddy goods falls through, they hatefully attempt to make you "feel God in your heart." Since they themselves apparently "feel God in their hearts," we must suspect that "he" represents hatred, since it is certainly not love they are spewing at each other and the rest of us.

Just wanted you to know that Jesus loved you so much that he died on the cross for you.  Believing on Him can bring great joy to your heart. I have an IQ of 160 and a couple of degrees in engineering and computers but I still know in my heart that Christ Died for me which is the real truth.

Gee, thanks! I'd never heard that pabulum before. Now I feel much better, except I'd like you to know that Superman loves you very much, and that he came from Krypton for you. And I would like to know how you got the appointment to speak for Jesus? Can anyone apply? And were you there when he "loved me" and "died for me?" Or did he tell you this recently?
