Gobekli Tepe: The World's First Temple?

Gobekli Tepe: The World’s First Temple?

Here is a fascinating find that could yield some really interesting and important information about how civilization developed. It would be very cool to see what sort of astrotheological data could be found there, since any temple aligned to the stars is an astrotheological artifact.

Pygmies in 'The Christ Conspiracy'

Pygmies in 'The Christ Conspiracy'

The Pygmies believed in a Father-God who was murdered, and a Virgin Mother, who gave birth to a Saviour-God Son, who in turn avenged the death of his father. These later on became the Osiris, Isis and Horus of Egypt. The Pygmy Christ was born of a virgin, died for the salvation of his people, arose from the dead, and finally ascended to heaven. Certainly this looks Christianity before Christ.

What about the Mesha Stele, Tel Dan Stele and Black Obelisk?

What about the Mesha Stele, Tel Dan Stele and Black Obelisk?

The Mesha Stele, Tel Dan Stele and Black Obelisk are among the artifacts used by Bible-thumpers to claim that the Good Book is confirmed as "history." While the brief mentions of "Israel," "David" or other king of Israel in these artifacts may serve to establish that Israel existed and that certain biblical kings were real, they do not prove that major, supernatural events of the Bible actually happened on Earth at any time in history....

Where's the Evidence for Mythicism?

Where's the Evidence for Mythicism?

The evidence for a mythical Jesus begins with the Bible itself. There is no credible contemporary evidence for Jesus. What is held up as evidence is flimsy and problematic at best. Biblical and NT scholars who are also professed Christians can't even agree on evidence for Jesus.

What is a conspiracy?

What is a conspiracy?

The effort of creating a religion designed to usurp all others I have chosen to identify as a "conspiracy." Yet, the very word "conspiracy" seems to disturb some people; hence, I have created this post.

Validation of the Mythicist Position

This astounding little video pretty much proves the mythicist position vis-a-vis the Old Testament. The whole house of cards falls down with the information in this video.

Jesus Christ, Sun of God

In response to the confusion about this important subject, here is a lengthy excerpt from my book Suns of God.

Jesus Christ, Sun of God

From the beginning, early Church fathers such as Tertullian (fl. 190-220 CE) were compelled to combat the assertion that Jesus Christ is the sun by rejoining to the effect: "You say we worship the sun. So do you."

Did St. Paul exist?

Did St. Paul exist?

My conclusion is that the character called "Paul" in the New Testament is a composite of both historical and mythical figures, including the Sauls of the Old Testament and Josephus, as well as Josephus himself, the mythical Greek figure Orpheus and the godman Apollonius of Tyana.

The Son of God is the Sun of God

The Son of God is the Sun of God

The assertion that the "Son of God" is the "Sun of God" is frequently raised as another strawman argument that detractors like to knock down. Like other criticisms, I have already addressed this one, but like sauerkraut it keeps repeating.

Cruciforms/Gods on Crosses

Cruciforms/Gods on Crosses

Although Christianity claims the cross only took significance with Jesus's placement on it, the fact is that the god-on-the-cross or in cross-shape is a pre-Christian sacred motif. Numerous ancient figures in many parts of the world were depicted on a cross or in cross-shape/cruciform, with arms outstretched.

Allah the Pagan Moon God

Freethought Nation • View topic - Allah the Pagan Moon God

"Late Islamic masculinization of the Arabian Goddess, Al-Lat or Al-Ilat - the Allatu of the Babylonians - formerly worshipped at the Kaaba in Mecca. It has been shown that 'the Allah of Islam' was a male transformation of 'the primitive lunar deity of Arabia.' Her ancient symbol the crescent moon still appears on Islamic flags, even though modern Moslems no longer admit any feminine symbolism whatever connected with the wholly patriarchal Allah."

Were the 12 Tribes of Israel Based on the Zodiac?

The claim that the 12 tribes of Israel were identified with the 12 signs of the zodiac is spelled out clearly by the ancient Jewish writers Philo and Josephus, during the first century.
