Photoactive chemicals were known well before the process of developing true images from negatives.  Essentially worthless, these images were of little interest to anyone.  Of course it is still a forgery, but it throws some light on its probable origin and fits the accumulated data better than the painted theory.  The best treatment to date on this issue is in a book by Picknett and Prince titled simply, "Turin Shroud."

Subject: The Shroud of Turin

Hello? Please do some homework from an objective point of view.  This type of preposterous hoax does no serious investigator any good.  The mythologies of Christianity should be understood in their true nature, Mythological. The great veil of darkness that encompasses our world is centered in the deceptions of the Roman invented religion as well as the invented religion of Islam. It's all the same: Oppression and subversion of the true nature of the human spirit. The origins of all of the Patriarchichal religions is Egypt. Study the pre-Egyptian Matriarchal systems of KMT (Khemet) for another system....

There is no intercessor; all must withstand the trials of life and spirit for themselves, unfettered by the dogmatic lies poised as truth.

Free yourselves of the dogma.

Subject: Hello...!

Acharya, I respect and admire you a lot!

First of all, I've always hated people who think women are lower than men. I'm Male, 15 years old, but I feel great to have broken free from my old narrow-mind perspective.  I was raised by Christian parents, but I was never a simple follower or sheep - that's what made me different than most people, and just a year ago I finally realized that the only reason I believed the Christian story was because I was raised by Christian parents.

I strayed from my point...

I came to your page just 4 hours ago (heh.. Yeah, I've been reading it that long now) and read a few sections, before I read about The Author, and I thought it was some old guy writing this stuff, but after I read the Author Page I thought "Whoa, cool". I admire and respect you for being  independent and not following like a sheep.

Your page is VERY interesting and you are an intelligent person.  One last thing which is a little depressing to say is that human beings will most likely not stop to look at our planet and see what we are doing to it... It's just the way things are, but there can still be hope... I'll tell the people I know about the things I've read since none of my friends have the net.

Subject: Thanks for the info

I recently received the info you sent on the Shroud correspondence. I applaud your efforts to inject some reason and logical thinking into a world gone truly insane with fundamentalist doctrine. As others have done, especially Dennis McKinsey, you expose the flaws and frauds of the Christian doctrine. But I have to say that I have serious doubts that despite the efforts you or other freethinkers go to, it seems to be of almost no use. As a freethinker, I have tried on several occasions to inject some rational analysis into otherwise mind-boggling displays of blind belief in the inerrancy of the Bible. Just this morning I heard on a conservative although non-Christian radio station, that the Bible is the word of God. One novice thinker actually called in to say that he found a puzzling conflict in the genealogy of Jesus as told by Matt and Luke. This poor man (who very likely was a Christian) was then attacked for trying to subvert the word of God and that there were no problems with the two stories. But as we know there are several:

1) The stories don't agree (this is what the poor soul discovered on his own)
2) Joseph is not the biological father of Jesus hence not the seed of David.
3) Jesus lies in Rev 22:16 by saying he is the offspring of David.
4) Both genealogies go through the cursed branch of the family as outlined in Jer22.  So it doesn't matter anyway,he can't be the messiah.
5) Mary is not connected to David in any scripture,so that escape doesn't work.
6) In an ironic surprise ending to the Bible, Jesus is Rev22:16 also says he is the morning star which ties quite well into the imagery of Isa 14 and Ezek 28. Isa 14:12 is other reference to morning star.

Those are the problems that come to mind on the issue of genealogy. I'm sure there are a few more. But what difference does all this make? No matter what evidence from their book you come up with,they just blow it off by saying that you are taking it out of context, the verses don't really mean what they say, or that only a believer is really qualified to understand the "true" meaning.

I was tempted to call in and reveal some of these problems with the holy word but I'm sure they have an excuse for every one of them. Apparently having something to believe is far more important than the accuracy of what they believe. Nothing can change that. These people are "gone". They have abandoned their minds to save their souls. Most have just accepted the Bible as truth without even bothering to check out the story in any way. I can understand why Dennis McKinsey (after 16 years) finally threw up his hands and walked away from this insanity of trying to rationally talk to these Christian fundamentalists and their millions of followers.

If I, as a rank amateur in this area can see these problems, you would think most other ordinary people would see these problems too. The evidence is right there in the Bible itself. I used to go into spiritual chatrooms every now and then to inject a little reason into the conversations but always was threatened to be kicked out because of my disruptive comments. And trust me, ANY comment that does not conform to their preconceived notion of what Jesus is or what the Bible says is considered disruptive. I'm sure you are already aware of the fine work Dennis left behind in his Biblical Errancy website,and here is another really good one:

http://www.mindspring.com/~understand/BIB/lessons.htm

This one is funny as well as informative.

Well Acharya, keep up the fine work - but I don't know if it is worth the effort other than for personal enlightenment.

Frustrating it is, but it obviously has some wonderful results, because there ARE people like you "out there."  Such being the case, I shall plug along ...

dearest acharya s-

this is a short note to let you know how much i was tickled by our beat-me-over-the-head-with-a-Zen-stick website.  i wish i had only one person in my circle who thinks as you do.  there must not be many of us out there, but I'm glad to have run into your site (via a circuitous route from Robert Anton Wilson's site).  know also, that we are of the same mind in our desire to awaken the rabble out of their social somnambulism.  how much more could one love their fellow man than to commit themselves to such a task.  it would be easier to say, as would the esteemed mullah Nasrudin, "fuck the whole bunch!", but we, my dear colleague, were put here for the same task!   my plan is to reach "the great unwashed" through clever and well-written songs, and i have some wonderful tunes.  the quote from your site "the truth shall set you free, but first it will piss you off" sums up my approach and attitude in general.  my fondest hope is to compliment your work.  i want to wish you the best and i will continue to tune in to your site.

Subject: pissed off

(I just really need to vent right now.  Please be so kind as to bear with me.)

You're right: the truth will piss me off.

It pisses me off that I grew up in what I now see is a rather stifling religion.

It pisses me off to learn that we have been duped into believing we are less than we are.  And it pisses me off more to realize that family and friends still contribute to the dumbing down.

It pisses me off when believers of a certain religion get on a bulletin board for those who have left said religion and start preaching and chastising.  And even more when a born-again xtian gets on with his "Come to Geeeeeeeeeeezus" shit.  (So, I suppose I'm a born-again pagan?)

It pisses me off to learn about revisionist histories, especially with something which claims to be god's one and only Truth in the Universe.

As I started reading your material this week, I have started to feel my own rage come out about this.  I am beginning to share your rage against the conspiracy, against the Matrix.

In the past few years since I left the bright and shining lie that is the Mormon church, I have tried to let bygones by bygones.  (Just what the hell is a "bygone"?)  But, Acharya, I feel more and more compelled to take the fight to the Morg Collective, to the Xtian Conspiracy, to fight and rage against the Matrix.  "I may not be a bright man, Jenny, but I'm starting to know a little about what Truth is."

What suggestions/recommendations do you have for me?

I'm still wondering about what my "life path" or whatever is "supposed"to be.

Thank you for your time and insights.
a friend (I hope),

Rage on, friend!  What can you do?  Jump on board the train.  "Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law." (Always stated with the caveat, "As long as it harms no one.")

To: Acharya S

What a magnificent mind - so focused and damn the norm.  lol - "bows to the lady" - i am very glad to have had the opportunity to cross your path.

Some day i hope we can talk more-perhaps you would be interested in hearing about my life ... From my childhood i have had so many - what would the word be? - encounters/supernatural events/paranormal interactions - all of the above.  i have seen things that most would never believe - i have come face to face with evil - nose to nose, my friend.  i smelled the smell of evil, and felt its chill.  i have had encounters with "the visitors" as i call them.  then aerial anomalies - i have witnessed are so many - and none are the classic "UFO" sighting ...

There are very few who know all this - but there are those who know it's all true.  they were there - they saw also.  I know you are very busy, involved in many areas - please never stop.  you are right:  we are deceived, and if you ever want to talk to someone who knows from experience that there is more than we think to our world, or our dimension, keep me in mind.

take care - be safe- smile

I always believed that I was a little different, until I visited your site. I to do not believe in religion.  I wanted to share my personal thoughts with you.

People, let's call them inDUHviduals, who take communion, wine and bread, and the religions they support, basically Catholics and Christians, are cannibals.  Yes, sounds weird, but do they not pretend to drink the blood of Christ? Do they not pretend to eat the body of Christ? Sounds cannibalistic to me.  I find it especially interesting that this act they do on a regular basis, goes against laws in the U.S. but they still support religion and god, to the point where they put "In God We Trust" on their currency.  So in my opinion, that Hannibal Lector fella was well within his rights given to him by the very same government that punished him.  And we wonder why we have problems, such as crime, kids killing kids. Nice religion.

I would really like to hear back from you and hear more of your views on religion.

Thanks for the time!

For more on my views on religion, see "Is Cannibalism a Religious Experience?"

Greetings to all!

The writings of Hilton Hotema are quite simply "DA BOMB"!  My first exposure to his work was a hard to find title: "Man's Higher Consciousness." This book actually got me to consider Breatharianism as a possible physical potentiality.  Searching for more titles by him led me to Dr. Kanya and the Tree of Life Bookstore.  After devouring the information on his web page, I decided to look into Acharya's site.  I credit Acharya, Brother Kanya, Hotema and a fellow named David Lane for helping me see through the "Matrix" of deception and for facilitating my thorough psycho-spiritual detoxification.

I have had the pleasure of speaking to Kanya on a few occasions, and he has been more than generous with his time and assistance.  Right now I'm half-way through "Secret of Regeneration," and it has been responsible for quite a few sleepless nights lately.  I also suggest checking out "Awaken the World Within".  This volume touches on the subject of the Chakras, Sex Transmutation and offers an interpretation of the Book of Revelations.

Be your best and keep smiling folks!

Kanya is indeed a fabulous person who has been busting his butt for the betterment of mankind for well over 50 years.  The books referenced above may be purchased through his Tree of Life bookstore.

Date: Sun, 27 Jun 1999 18:24:04 -0400

Wow!  I have been searching for a site like yours.  I was beginning to feel all alone with this "religious" thing and my resistance of it.  To give you a little background; I am a 39-year-old married mom of 4 sons.  I had never really thought about my religious beliefs all my life, just went along with the masses and called myself a Christian, because after all it is the "politically correct" thing to do.  Now as recently as a year ago a friend started trying to influence my "spiritual growth."  She started a bible study group a couple of months ago and sh*t started hitting the fan ever since.  The more times I attended, the more disturbed and angry I felt during and after the study.  I do not and can never accept many of the things that these self-professed Christians are trying to convince me is truth.  I am to believe children who are of an accountable age but may have never been saved and meet an untimely death are certainly in hell! That God did not make homosexuals and that they can change the fact that they are.  Halloween is an evil celebration of the dead and that I should not as a Christian let my children participate.  My little Power Ranger has evil in his heart when he goes out begging for candy.  Anyway, I am no longer attending these bible studies with the explanation that I have not found my truth in what I am to believe, other than there is a supreme something to have created the wonderful world of life.  Beyond that I know nothing except the bible doesn't ring true.  I confessed at the bible study the first night that I was a skeptic and required facts to back up claims, that I do not have blind faith and never will.

Anyway I don't feel so alone anymore, and I suspect there are many more like us, but are afraid to say so for fear of being called "bad."  You won't see me going public with my feelings any time soon.  Like I said, I have 4 sons and I don't want to cause them any problems being accepted either.  You are a very brave person to make your feelings public.

... God help us if we're wrong!  (Couldn't help that)
