Pagan Parallels: Achilles Heel of Christianity

Pagan Parallels: Achilles Heel of Christianity

My forum mod's put together a post on the pagan parallels to the "life of Christ" constantly bandied about around the internet. In my book The Christ Conspiracy, published in 1999, I included several lists of parallels from the "lives" of various pagan gods and heroes. These parallels lists have been reproduced all over the place, and they tend to create apoplexy in the faithful and others ignorant of the research behind them. I updated these parallels lists in my revised article "Origins of Christianity," which you can find linked in the attached forum post.

I've stated that, based on Christian apologists' frantic behavior in "debunking" these various lists and parallels, this part of Jesus mythicism appears to be the "Achilles Heel" of Christianity, as it demonstrates that, rather than serving as "divine revelation," the faith is a rehash of the religious and mythological notions current and popular at the time of its creation.

Despite the hysterical "refutations" generally indicating ignorance of the subject, the parallels are real and not to be dismissed. And they do indeed expose Christianity as a remake of pre-Christian religion and mythology, as much of the rest of my forum, websites, articles, books, ebooks, videos and radio programs also demonstrate.

My Response to Mark Foreman

My Response to Mark Foreman

Attached is a letter I sent to yet another "little liar for the Lord," Liberty University's Mark Foreman, who somehow believes that, even though I am clearly not afraid of being tortured in eternal hell by his all-powerful "loving" Master, HE can intimidate and bully me into submission.

Did the Dogon Know about Sirius B?

Did the Dogon Know about Sirius B?

Hot off the presses! Pass it around, post it wherever you see misinformation. I think the reality is far more fascinating than the fictional "alien" paradigm created around this phenomenon.

Cambridge University Republication of Older Scholarship

Cambridge University Republication of Older Scholarship 

Here is a valuable short post about the debate concerning older scholarship. Note that Cambridge University Press has no qualms about publishing this series of journals from the early 1800s, remarking: "It remains a valuable resource, illuminating the development of nineteenth-century classical scholarship and academic journals." Indeed.

The Book No Pope Would Want You To Read

The Book No Pope Would Want You To Read

One reason I take my work seriously is because children and other innocents suffer mightily from the effects of religious fanaticism and abuse of authority. In this technological age, such abuse is finally being exposed and, hopefully, stopped to whatever extent possible at this point.

Why are young people leaving religion in droves?

Why are young people leaving religion in droves?

Gee, I dunno. Maybe because the standard religious practices globally are irrational, illogical, ineffective, intolerant, bigoted, sexist, divisive, hateful, cruel and violent?

U.S. politicians increasingly unaffiliated with organized religion

U.S. politicians increasingly unaffiliated with organized religion

Can't say I'm upset! Let the increasing "nones" have the day for a change. Other than a brief period when I became a born-again, I've been a "none" since I emancipated myself from church when I was 12. That's decades ago, so I guess I'm ahead of the curve, influenced at a young age by the secular American Founding Fathers such as Jefferson, Franklin and Paine (the "forgotten" FF).
