if you're black like me(i think there's a book out there), you just accept this as good humor. a good laugh does the body good. let's not be so sensitve. i know who i am so i don't take offense to anything whether derogatory or not. i also don't take myself or anyone else too seriously. my wife, who is white like you (another book perhaps), thought these were hilarious. last night i saw a comic on BET doing similar material so lighten up and laugh......

Bright Lady, I love you well and would not wish to argue with you. You fight the good fight against the encroaching forces of darkness. You are She Who Can Not Be Defeated , an embodiment of the Goddess and dearer to me than you know. But there is also a goodness in Ronin. A nobility of spirit that just needs a little aging in order to grant him some perspective. Rather than quarrel with people I am fond with , I think I will cool my heels for a while and spare everybody my doggerel. You know me well and are sure to see me sprout forth again in the future..... And yes the Palestinians are getting a real bum deal. However they are not one young man standing in defiance against the crowd. My voice added to theirs would not grant them any peace of mind. ....toad the mad..

'Thank you' seems such a paltry, brief way of expressing my gratitude to individuals such as yourself who take a lifetime to study, and then impart their knowledge and experience for the cost of a phone call. ( I live in the UK, where internet access is not yet free).

I spent a mere afternoon absorbing what has clearly involved a large part of your life, and felt that you presented your research and conclusions in perhaps the most accessible, entertaining, and thought provoking fashion I have encountered since reading Robert Anton Wilson.

Well, I don't know about 6 months ago, but about 10 months ago I turned away from my former belief in Islam (in secret, of course, I don't trust those psychos) and 7 months ago I started taking up esoteric, occult and mysticism studies. Does that count as tough time for beleifs? :0) by the way, where did you find that piece of astrological information?

I recently (okay, today) got into a "discussion" with a self-appointed expert on the Atheist/Agnostic Forum at About.com. You know, just kinda feeling it out to see if there was anything we had in common and to bounce a few ideas off of people. I have been promoting your Christ Conspiracy book as well as several books by Michael Shermer to as many people as possible. My dilemma is that this person (I don't know if he is a fundamentalist trying to goad me or if he's serious) started throwing dates at me as an argument to claim that your entire work is bogus. As you can see by my response at the bottom, I really didn't want to get into a pissing contest about this. I'm just trying to let people know which books I think are worth reading. As I allude in my response, I have never seen a book that tries to take on as much as yours did. You are to be commended. But, could you please respond to his position as to the dates and events mentioned? Is it a hotly contested issue with no clear cut consensus, or is it a matter of who is kissing who's scholarly ass at the university? I know that university professors interact with each other in much the same way as the rest of us. Politics is politics.

Thanks in advance,

-------------------------

A point-by-point refutation isn't necessary because her(?) work is quite obviously polemical rather than scholarly in nature. One example ought to make the point. "Acharya S" (whoever she *really* is) claims that "the gospels were composed between 170-180 C.E." without offering any reasons why. That's important because those dates are much later than the consensus of scholars at least as to the Synoptics. For example, most scholars put Matthew between 80-100 C.E. since nearly all see references to Matthew in Ignatius's writing just after 100 C.E. Mark is generally dated no later than the 70's C.E. with a majority arguing for the 60's. Few see Luke as having been written after 85 C.E.

It isn't my purpose to argue in favor of these or any other dates. But if your anonymous "scholar" had intended to do more than simply write propaganda she would not have claimed late dates without supporting her view and engaging the work of the clear majority of authorities who disagree with her.

-----------------------------

I wrote in response:

Well hey, here's a thought. Why don't you ask her? Or better yet, I will, I have written her and gotten cordial responses before. I will be glad to post her response on this forum. As for the fact that she uses a pseudonym, so what. So did Samuel Clemens. So have many writers throughout history, all for their own reasons.

As far as the dates are concerned, sorry, but saying that "the consensus of other scholars.." means no one really knows for sure. History by committee can be just as inaccurate. My brother-in-law has a Doctorate and teaches at Concordia Seminary in St. Louis, has a Masters in ancient Greek. He and I can talk dates and facts all day long, but when it's all over, it's what he's read and believes to be true versus what I've read. I'll guarantee that he's a lot more inflexible on this subject than I am. He has a vested interest in maintaining the status quo. I only wish to dig my way down to the bottom of a big pile of manure and see what's been covered up.

I like and recommend her book because it lays down a plausible scenario of events and human motives for why christianity started and still exists today. Since there are no other books that I have heard of that take on this Herculean task or until you write one that's better, I'll continue to recommend this book and give away copies to everyone I meet. If the religious people can pass out their "holy" book by the millions, I think the least I can do is my small part to counter their magical thinking and blatant lies.

I don't think that guy actually read my book, because I certainly do give reasons why the canonical gospels must date to that late a period: To wit, they are found nowhere in the literary, historical or archeological record until then!

Thanks for your rapid response to my request. I will put it to good use. I have found that in the short while that I have been posting to the Atheists/Agnostics Forum that people seem to fall into one of several categories.

1.) People who want to have honest and non-confrontational discussions and learn something while having the camaraderie and enjoyment of "meeting" people of a like mind.

2.) People who want to lord it over others by proving they are intellectually superior (or at least demonstrate the size of their egos). They were probably school yard bullies when they were small. This kind usually writes stuff that can't be refuted unless you have a pile of books beside you (with all the proper references already bookmarked, in case you are called to task on a subject) and all day to do it.

3.) Fundamentalists of any religion. There's really nothing to say about this type of person except they serve the church well as useful idiots. I usually can tell when they post that they're only trying to incite people. I can almost hear them snickering after they post. Useful idiots indeed: Hitler had 'em, Stalin had 'em and the church has 'em. In fact every major group has them, they are necessary to perpetuate the myths and propaganda, just as a constant stream of new recruits is.

I now believe that the person who responded about your book goes behind Door #3. Maybe not a fundy, but an enabler. Someone who keeps the troops squabbling amongst themselves about petty things while the religious armies are winning the war for the hearts and minds of the people. They know that the best way to ensure a constant source of new meat is by hooking them while they're young. That's why they want the 10 Commandments and "Creation Science" taught in the schools. But of course you know all of this.

Have you given any thought to creating a book that would be more easily digestible by the masses. Yes, I know I am talking about dumbing it down to a level that most people seem to read and comprehend at. I have no idea how you would do that myself, it's hard to unlearn how to write at an adult level. Or maybe a series of smaller books/booklets for junior atheists/agnostics would be better. Have you ever read The Skeptic magazine? They have a section called Junior Skeptic with illustrations and articles for children. It might provide a good source of income for you if you can find a publisher. Besides, I think we need more people like you who can not only think clearly, but also write about the truth. Just something to think about, anyway thanks again and good luck, sleep tight, don't let the christians bite.

Howdy, It's been a while since I last e-mailed you. I was just wondering how you were doing. It doesn't look like you've been active on the internet, lately. I haven't received any of those news letters in a while. I checked out the radio section of your website and you havn't posted any recent appearances on radio or in public.  For a little while, it seemed like your message was getting around and a lot of people were hyped about the changes the new millineum might bring. Now it seems like business as usual. The excitement I felt about five or six months ago, and before, is gone. Stagnation is in the air. I have the feeling that the bad guys might have won when the calender flipped 1/1/00. I've watched a lot of people cash in on conspiracy theory and y2k and then pick up stakes and leave town like some carpet-bagger after nothing really happened or no real change was made. Apathy is in the air and I don't think I'm the only one who feels that. A lot of people appear to be walking aroung in a semi-conscious state. As for myself, I've grown more withdrawn and timid in the past few months. I'm more interested in how my finances are going than I am about enlightenment and having fun, even though I'm debt-free. But maybe all this down stuff is just me and my perception. Maybe I'm wrong. I hope it's just me and I wake up someday soon having learned a new lesson and feeling refreshed and seeing everything in a different light. Just a few thoughts from a unique person living an ordinary life. I hope you are doing ok and life is treating you well. Let me know what you think and how you're doing.A fan of yours forever.

First I'm not writing this to condem you (couldn't if I wanted to, but I don't) just wanted to share some of the thoughts I had after reading what you wrote.  God is the source of all to choose God is to choose life to reject God is to reject life.  Although people may not like the choice it is still a choice and if you could show me scripture where God say we have free-will I'd like to see it.  I feel there is a   differnce between having  choices and having free-will, wow, what a crazy world this would be if we all had free-will. Now I don't know about you but I'm not all knowing.  I have know idea of what the ramifications are of every mistake I make.  If I being a relatively rightous person I tell a little lie I have no idea if that lie was the 'stone in the pond' that caused the ripple that ended someones marriage or worse. To say that if I had known that my lie would cause so much destruction is no excuse, knowing that it could should be enough to deter me, right. Why doesn't it, I think it is because we are incomplete both physically and spiritually, there is no such thing a being completely self-sufficient, this causes us to be able to give only conditional love a love based on what other people or things can do for us, even if the other person benifits more then you its still conditional.  We always have alterior motivies for our actions some may even be labled as good alterior motivies, still doesn't change the fact that the love is conditional. My question to you is there such a thing as unconditional love?

Logically, There is much evidence to support that Jesus was a real person. Now whether you believe He is the Son of God is another matter. If you looked at historical evidence outside of the Bible; evidence emphatically proves that Jesus existed. To make the assumption that biblical scripture is folklore, is another mistake. Time again, many have tried to disprove the hard evidence that exists to support Jesus as reality. To state that Wicca is not a Satanic religion is also false. I tell you, Satan does exist, although so does the living God. Do you really believe folklore than the reality of truth? On that day you will truly know. Seek and you will find; seek with an open mind and base your search on evidence.

Dear Ms., Hi, its me again, ******. Victory was just won in Yerusalem (please watch your news). Unfortunately it will be given freely to the enemies (Isayah 3), for Yerusalem will be taken (Zecharyah 14). For Yahdah (modern day "Israel" in the middle east) or the Jews, who are the sanctuary are about to be refined. Change now, for rebels and sinners will be removed (Isayah 1:28) in judgment. There are 4 according to Enoch. The first is for the righteous to have a bright spring water. The second is for those who are now dead who were not judged in their deeds while alive (like the makers of the republics that you know worldwide) will live in thirst and torture forever. The third are for those who make a condition or suit in their lives will be destroyed in the end time which is where we are right now or the end of the wicked for those who fail the plumbline (Amosyah 7) will be ended or the end overflowing in righteousness (Arabs are forming). And fourth, for those who will die today in the end time complete in transgression (for sin is complete, and that we are living in this great transgression of Yaaqob) will not be raised or slain but will be binded up forever. Meaning a chance for the multitude to live and a spacious liberty to the saints (those who have completed the law). But then there is a judgment for those who have spoken hard and unseeming words agains! t Father Yahweh, so that they will be in the spectacle of righteous judgment in front of the righteous forever (or the multitude you know now). Kings are now scrambling there in Yerusalem (Isayah 60-66) for answers.But the Arabs wants war now as they say all options are open. They will tread in the land as the Book of Enoch and Ezrayah 4 says (please see attached). So you see, I was found to be correct in what I said, and it is not getting better. I will say this to you now before trouble begins, it will really will not. Hence be refined (by turning to Him) for who knows you can make it in His day (read the Book of Isayah, Yeremyah, Yechetzqyah, the 12 "minor" prophets like Hosheyah, Amosyah, etc. Those who will be refined will become His people. The 2/3 are cut off (Zecharyah 13:8) and will die. You have merit as you try to learn (by uncovering this sun image which messes so many lives) but the truth of knowledge is from the inspired pages of the Tanach (though Christian bibles were written wrongly), and from what is revealed (say how you see light comes to you). Other than that, the research and knowledge the wor!

ld knows today is simply Assyrian way (library, research), it is a useless yoke that till the end of man (with these horrible weapons all over) will never bring the light of day. There will be saints ruling. Those who fail the law will be ended (Zephanyah 1). Meaning, either they will be dragged off the earth, and will not be seen anymore by the righteous and the elect who will inherit the earth, or in the abyss of fire if condemned (the demons were sealed there and the kings are now online).

rya Certainly the hold of birth-religion on an individual is very determinative, but someone of higher thought and mental capacity has to grow out of it as well as out of a lot of dictations and caveats of his/hers culture. I had to do this very much myself given that I was brought up in a very religious invironment, family and village in Greece,of the Greek orthodox church. As far as the NT there are many books exposing the contradictions, mistakes, illogicalities, stupidities etc. Last summer I was in Greece and I found one more there under the title (I translate it into english) "the contradictions of the NT" by Thomas Maras, who has collectedalmost all of them and on this basis he attacks all the historizers (such as R. Abelain, Renan, the post-mortum Gianis Kordatos, greek historiam, and many others). His thesis is that if Jesus (at least the one that the NT wants to present) was a real historical person all thesecondradiction, mistakes and innacuracies would have been impossible especially if we study what they are pe se. For many historical persons there are some contradictory reports about some incidents, given that sourses have been destroyed, thanks to christians and muslims, but in the case of the NT we cannot envoke this argument at all for all kind of good reasons. As a result the historizers many time do not know what theytalk about and they try to rectify the unrectifiable. I think that this book must be translated in all languages. Also for the OT there are many books along the same lines and ideas. I have got a number of them in english and greek. You wrote to me that you are writing another book. Is it on the same subject matter? If it is ok let me know what it is about. I may be very interested to study it when published. Thanks again for your mesages and the included information.

Dear Acharya, I just finished reading your book, and dare I say, I found it to be inspirational! It was well written, informative, but left me wanting more. I was raised in an Irish-Catholic environment, complete with heavy doses of guilt, and consequently it took a few years to shed it all. As a teenager I rejected the whole thing, knowing the bible was not significantly different from mythology. I still desired to learn more about the origins of Christianity, and thanks to your book, I have a lot of new directions to take in new readings. I have read Dan Barker's great book, and some of Robert Ingersoll's wonderful words of wisdom from the 19th century, and can't wait to read Joseph Wheless. So thank you for using those folks as references and inspiring your readers to seek out more truth. You nearly lost me in the astrological chapter, but I stayed with it and now see a definite correlation with that and Christianity. Thanks again for your book, you are a breath of fresh air in a nation where Christians are forever "in your face" with their proselytizing and attempting to convert infidels like you and me.

Rest assured, I'm not in any way related with these people. And you are quite right, they are rude, smug jackasses. Unfortunately, I am not surprised by this site's popularity. It seems, and I would be interested to hear your thoughts on this, that the United States is in the opening years of a new revival. While it is common for luke warm christians to denounce the fundamentalists, they continue to support the goals of the religious right. Here in Mississippi, USA, the news is periodically bursting with postings of the ten commandments, "in god we trust", and the like. It's actually pretty scary, a powerful group incapable of reason. At any rate, I just wanted to assure you that I am not part of any ruse. PS. I have to agree that Charles Fort would really have dug your work. Acharya S wrote: Thanks! I am quite aware of the tektonics gang, as they have been very hateful and devious with me, attempting to bait me into a pissing contest on a number of occasions, with bogus messages as well. Hopefully, yours is not one of these. The tektonics mob consists of hard-hitting apologists, as you say; hence, naturally, they would pounce hard on Christ Con, since it apparently represents the greatest threat to their mind-control cult. Unfortunately for all their blustering, they have not been able to refute it, since their arguments consist mainly of sophistry and ad hominems, with not a small amount of jeering and sneering. I am surprised that anyone gives them any credence at all, since they are quite evidently a gang of very unbalanced people. But, as I outline at my site, religion is mental illness, so it is not unexpected. I call this cult "Gay Nazis for Christ," as they are extremely misogynistic, making comments about various parts of my body, for example, and are essentially "spiritual terrorists" interested in forcing their unprovable beliefs upon the rest of society, by whatever means. Their main thug is JP Holding aka Robert Turkel, who works in some capacity in the prison industry, an industry known to attract violent, repressed homosexuals. Re the Fortean Times, well, I hope you and your friends wrote them a nice letter pointing out their error. The guy who wrote that mess subsequently apologized to a friend of mine. He's an ex-pastor with an axe to grin and an agenda to uphold, also apparently a member of British intelligence. As we know, the establishment makes billions of dollars a year through religion. FT has gone downhill these past few years, unfortunately. Someone pointed out that for such a magazine to continue, it needs to foster belief in the supernatural, so attacking the Big Guy is a no-no. Actually, I'm quite sure that Charles Fort would have loved my work. I appreciate the kudos.

Hi. Not sure about you being blacklisted... I keep hearing about your book all the time. Amazon has yet to get this new edition of mine on thier site, but it's just as well. The new publishers have put a new cover onit that is, in my humble opinion, horrid. It's a cartoon of the hand of God crushing a bunch of clergy. I am less then impressed. But such are the travails of publishing. They basically wanted to soften the image to get mass media attention without ticking too many people off. Naive... the book is designed to do so. The synopsis is fairly simple... I've started at recorded history, circa 5000 BC with the Indus Valley Civilization and the Sumarians, and have followed the course of religious developement from a strictly factual point of view. No faith, no miracles. Just the basics of what we know has actually gone down. The book is presented in a very informal, often sarcastic tone with a lot of humor. (The ads say "You'll Laugh Like Hell." ) It covers Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, and Buddhism. The idea of it is to give a good basic gist of the history of each... not the intricasies of the dogma. When you're finished reading it the idea is that you'll have a good working knowledge of the follies and histories of all the religions, and you'll have had a hoot learning it all. My site, Http://Heathensguide.com is not quite up and running yet, but should be by Monday. Still working on the credit card stuff, and all the text is just temporary. (ie: ignore the spelling errors... they stuff on the site is just filler until I get the real site up this weekend.) Please drop by it anyway. There's a couple excerpts to read if you want to. On a scholastic note, I see that you have "linguist" down in your signature line. Confirm or deny for me off hand if you can... "logos" has a whole bunch of definitions, among which I believe is "antithesis" or "arguement". Yes or no? Also, would love to join in on your discussion groups if I can swing an invite.

Hey... I just searched your site and finally got to read a bunch of your stuff. I am impressed. You've done a lot of the same stuff I did, with a lot more research. I'd consider the book I have out as a primer to yours. Mine is the surface level "I bet you didn't know this stuff" where yours really gets into the depth of it all. I worked a lot with the Gnostic stuff, and set the creation of Christianity squarely at 325 AD, the first council at Niceae. From what I read of your stuff, you did the same, though I'm not sure. I want to get this book of yours. I'm doing a lot of Canadian talk shows over the next while. (I don't start the States until January).

Hi Acharya...Was just turned on to your site and I can't tell you how relieving it is to see that there are still some people in the world that actually use that thing on their shoulders...it seems to me that more and more people are being born with tunnel vision...simply believing what they are told without question... And just for the record Acharya...no matter how old you get or however time treats you...you are and always be beautiful to me...it's what's inside that counts:)...
