The Creation of a Myth
The Christians went on a censorship rampage that led to the virtual illiteracy of the ancient world and ensured that their
secret would be hidden from the masses64, but the scholars of other schools/sects never gave up their arguments
against the historicizing of a very ancient mythological creature. We have lost the arguments of these learned dissenters because the
Christians destroyed any traces of their works. Nonetheless, the Christians preserved the contentions of their detractors through the
Christians' own refutations.
For example, early Church Father Tertullian (@ 160-220 C.E.), an "ex-Pagan" and Bishop of Carthage, ironically admits the true
origins of the Christ story and of all other such godmen by stating in refutation of his critics, "You say we worship the sun; so do
you."65 Interestingly, a previously strident believer and defender of the faith,
Tertullian later renounced Christianity66.
The "Son" of God is the "Sun" of God 67
The reason why all these narratives are so similar, with a godman who is crucified and resurrected, who does miracles and has
12 disciples, is that these stories were based on the movements of the sun through the heavens, an astrotheological development that can be found
throughout the planet because the sun and the 12 zodiac signs can be observed around the globe. In other words, Jesus Christ and all the others
upon whom this character is predicated are personifications of the sun, and the Gospel fable is merely a rehash of a mythological formula (the
"Mythos," as mentioned above) revolving around the movements of the sun through the heavens.68
For instance, many of the world's crucified godmen have their traditional birthday on December 25th ("Christmas"69). This is because the ancients recognized that (from an earthcentric
perspective) the sun makes an annual descent southward until December 21st or 22nd, the winter solstice, when it stops moving southerly for
three days and then starts to move northward again. During this time, the ancients declared that "God's sun" had "died" for three days and was
"born again" on December 25th. The ancients realized quite abundantly that they needed the sun to return every day and that they would be in
big trouble if the sun continued to move southward and did not stop and reverse its direction. Thus, these many different cultures celebrated
the "sun of God's" birthday on December 25th.70 The following are the characteristics of the "sun of God":
The sun "dies" for three days on December 22nd, the winter solstice, when it
stops in its movement south, to be born again or resurrected on December 25th, when it resumes its movement north.
some areas, the calendar originally began in the constellation of Virgo, and the sun would therefore be "born of a
- The sun is the "Light of the World."
- The sun "cometh on clouds, and every eye shall see him."
- The sun rising in the morning is the "Savior of mankind."
- The sun wears a corona, "crown of thorns" or halo.71
- The sun "walks on water."
- The sun's "followers," "helpers" or "disciples" are the 12 months and
the 12 signs of the zodiac or constellations, through which the sun must pass.
- The sun at 12 noon is in the house or temple of the "Most High"; thus,
"he" begins "his Father's work" at "age" 12.
- The sun enters into each sign of the zodiac at 30°; hence, the "Sun of
God" begins his ministry at "age" 30.
- The sun is hung on a cross or "crucified," which represents its passing
through the equinoxes, the vernal equinox being Easter, at which time it is then resurrected.72
Contrary to popular belief, the ancients were not an ignorant and superstitious lot who actually believed their deities to be
literal characters. Indeed, this slanderous propaganda has been part of the conspiracy to make the ancients appear as if they were truly the dark
and dumb rabble that was in need of the "light of Jesus."73 The reality is that the ancients were no less advanced in their morals and
spiritual practices, and in many cases were far more advanced, than the Christians in their own supposed morality and ideology, which, in its
very attempt at historicity, is in actuality a degradation of the ancient Mythos. Indeed, unlike the "superior" Christians, the true
intelligentsia amongst the ancients were well aware that their gods were astronomical and atmospheric in nature. Socrates, Plato and
Aristotle74 surely knew that Zeus, the sky god father figure who migrated to Greece from
India and/or Egypt, was never a real person, despite the fact that the Greeks have designated on Crete both a birth cave and a death cave of
Zeus. In addition, all over the world are to be found sites where this god or that allegedly was born, walked, suffered, died, etc., a common
and unremarkable occurrence that is not monopolized by, and did not originate with, Christianity.74a
Etymology Tells the Story
Zeus, aka "Zeus Pateras," who we now automatically believe to be a myth and not a historical figure, takes his name from the
Indian version, "Dyaus Pitar." Dyaus Pitar in turn is related to the Egyptian "Ptah," and from both Pitar and Ptah comes the word "pater," or
"father." "Zeus" equals "Dyaus," which became "Deos," "Deus" and "Dios"--"God." "Zeus Pateras," like Dyaus Pitar, means, "God the Father," a very
ancient concept that in no way originated with "Jesus" and Christianity. There is no question of Zeus being a historical character. Dyaus Pitar
becomes "Jupiter" in Roman mythology, and likewise is not representative of an actual, historical character. In Egyptian mythology, Ptah, the
Father, is the unseen god-force, and the sun was viewed as Ptah's visible proxy who brings everlasting life to the earth; hence, the "son of God"
is really the "sun of God." Indeed, according to Hotema, the very name "Christ" comes from the Hindi word "Kris" (as in Krishna), which is a name
for the sun.75
Furthermore, since Horus was called "Iusa/Iao/Iesu"76 the "KRST," and Krishna/Christna was called "Jezeus," centuries before any
Jewish character similarly named, it would be safe to assume that Jesus Christ is just a repeat of Horus and Krishna, among the rest.
According to Rev. Taylor, the title "Christ" in its Hebraic form meaning "Anointed" ("Masiah"77) was held by all kings of Israel, as well as being "so commonly assumed by
all sorts of impostors, conjurers, and pretenders to supernatural communications, that the very claim to it is in the gospel itself considered
as an indication of imposture..."78 Hotema states that the name "Jesus Christ" was not formally adopted in its
present form until after the first Council of Nicea, i.e., in 325 C.E.79
In actuality, even the place names and the appellations of many other characters in the New Testament can be revealed to be
Hebraicized renderings of the Egyptian texts.
As an example, in the fable of "Lazarus," the mummy raised from the dead by Jesus, the Christian copyists did not change his
name much, "El-Azar-us" being the Egyptian mummy raised from the dead by Horus possibly 1,000 years or more before the Jewish version.80 This story is allegory for the sun reviving its old, dying self, or father,
as in "El-Osiris."81 It is not a true story.
Horus's principal enemy--originally Horus's other face or "dark" aspect - was "Set" or "Sata," whence comes
"Satan."82 Horus struggles with Set in the exact manner that Jesus battles with Satan,
with 40 days in the wilderness, among other similarities.83 This is because this myth represents the triumph of light over dark, or the
sun's return to relieve the terror of the night.
"Jerusalem" simply means "City of Peace," and the actual city in Israel was named after the holy city of peace in the
Egyptian sacred texts that already existed at the time the city was founded. Likewise, "Bethany," site of the famous multiplying of the loaves,
means "House of God," and is allegory for the "multiplication of the many out of the One."84 Any town of that designation was named for the allegorical place in the texts
that existed before the town's foundation. The Egyptian predecessor and counterpart is "Bethanu."85
