Songs in the Key of Acharya S

Songs in the Key of Acharya S

Like most people in the U.S., I keep hearing "O Holy Night" and so on, so I also keep thinking about my renditions. Enjoy!

World Tree as Milky Way growing out of the back of a turtle

World Tree as Milky Way growing out of the back of a turtle

I found this comparison to be very intriguing. I always wonder how old a motif is, and this one may be very old indeed. I am quite curious about what myths people took with them as they fanned out around the globe, including and especially into the Americas.

Was Horus Born on December 25th of a Virgin? | Sun God of Egypt

And another one hot off the presses, full of images and primary sources! There is so much misinformation, disinformation and outright lying about this subject that this article needs to be spread widely. Feel free to post and link around wherever you see the need.

Chrestes as Oracle

Chrestes as Oracle

Here's an analysis of one of the more esoteric aspects of the mythicist position. While the discussion of "Chrestos" and "Chrestes," etc., represents a more scholarly element, it is an important one. If we understand that before there was a "Christ" there were many Chrests, including as priests and oracles engaged in religion - and by which title Jesus too was called - we have a clearer picture of the atmosphere in which Christianity was founded.

Is Suetonius's Chresto a Reference to Jesus?

Is Suetonius's Chresto a Reference to Jesus?

Hot off the presses! Here is a MAJOR piece of the Christ-myth puzzle. I have taken a lengthy article and broken it down into different essays, with numerous links both to these other articles and to references, citations and annotated footnotes. You will see the other new articles in this "Chrestos" series in the "Related articles" and "Further Reading" sections. This "Chrestos" research ties together many loose ends in study of Christian origins. Enjoy!

Ad Homs, Misogyny and Professional Jealousy?

Here we go again! Some people have nothing better to do than to frantically prevent others from reading my work, using whatever desperate measures they can glom onto.

God in the Box at the Carmel Art & Film Festival

God in the Box at the Carmel Art & Film Festival

"God in the Box" is a terrific film that I think will help enlighten the world and increase peace by providing an open dialogue regarding religion, mythology and atheism. If we can all accept that numerous, often disparate ideas exist within the human experience, strife and division can only be decreased.
As a participant in this documentary, I am delighted to see that it is getting the recognition it deserves. Thank you, Carmel Art & Film Festival and Clint Eastwood!

Join me in the Yucatan for a December 21, 2012 celebration!

Happy Winter Solstice to those in the southern hemisphere! It's St. John's Nativity - coincidence? "He must increase, but I must decrease," says John, the summer sun, of his winter counterpart, Jesus. (John 3:30)

Hoffman and Casey's ranting smear job against mythicists

I didn't write this forum post, and I frankly don't like reading such unseemly bilge, so I appreciate this response for what it is.

The concept of Creation in Hinduism

Here's an cool new article by FTN guestwriter Murali Chemuturi. Ladies will especially like to hear this part: "In Hinduism, the 'first manifest' was a female, and the supreme being is also feminine."

Red Ice Radio - Acharya S - Hour 1 - The Christ Conspiracy

I am delighted to announce the release of my new radio interview with Red Ice Radio! I think you'll really enjoy this one, because my Swedish host Henrik is very knowledgeable about this subject, so the program moved quite fluidly, IMO.

Bible morality or depravity?

Bible morality or depravity?

As I was editing this article by Barbara G. Walker, I became nauseated at the sickening violence in the Bible - I've read these passages too many times before, but not in one big gulp over a period of several hours. Well, here's a condensed go-to page for Bible atrocities, compiled by Barbara and edited by me, including links to the biblical verses, which can be read in the rollover windows. Pass it around!
