"The Gospel According to Acharya S" This Week on Aeon Byte!

Hi there -

I've got a brand new radio program that will be playing on Miguel Conner/Abraxas's "Aeon Byte" all this weekend! Miguel and I always do great shows together, so be sure to listen in.

Look at what Miguel has to say about our latest foray together, during which I interviewed HIM about my book "The Gospel According to Acharya S!"


Acharya S has been one of the greatest champions of Truthseeking and Freethinking in our modern days; as well as a groundbreaking scholar in the fields of comparative mythology, astrotheology and ancient religion. she has been a friend to the Gnostic cause and the Esoterica in general. And Acharya has certainly been the bane of Orthodoxy and all agents of intolerance. The release of her "Purple Bible" encapsulates her life mission of finding the truth behind the Literalist walls of theology and social control. She grants us an intimate and personal account of her core themes including often touching views on God, the essence of Divinity, the true purpose of religion and the redemption of humanity; and relates her struggles against fundamentalism and its minions that have tried to destroy her for decades. Unrated, uncut and almost unplugged, we take a journey into the sacred heart of a heretic.

Astral Guest: Acharya S, author of "The Gospel According to Acharya S" (or the "Purple Bible"), "Christ in Egypt," "Who was Jesus?," "The Christ Conspiracy" and "Suns of God."

Topics Discussed:

--Breaking down the chapters and themes of the "Purple Bible" that both elevate individualism and berate the collective thinking of oppressive ideologies and theologies.

--Why religion is actually a positive force.

--What scholarly u-turns she has taken recently and new wrinkles on her ongoing research.

--The reasons why only one document in the world should actually be considered holy and sacred.

--How Acharya actually turned the tables and interviewed the host of the show!

--A brief autobiography of her life, her life work, and her life battles against agents who have tried to destroy her in more ways than one.

And much more!!!

Just go to The program is broadcast all weekend long. Listen to it at your convenience.

All of Acharya's interviews can be found at

She discusses a wide range of sexy topics like Mystery Religions, The Power of Mythology, Apollonius of Tyana & Paul of Tarsus, the Egyptian roots of Christianity, the Fable of the Historical Christ and large doses of vitamin Astrotheology. And Gnosticism, of course! Paraphrasing Meister Eckhart--sometimes the only way to know God is to blaspheme against God.



Please tune in and support me and Miguel, who is one of my favorite radio guys and who works very hard to bring you the best quality material on these fascinating subjects.

"The Gospel According to Acharya S" is available internationally through Amazon.

Death threats against ex-Muslims

My latest Freethought Examiner article -

Death threats against ex-Muslims

"In writing this column, I have been dancing around the 800-pound gorilla in the room as concerns secular freedom and religious fanaticism: To wit, Islamic fundamentalism. Despite the constant claims of "religion of peace," this subject provokes so much violent frenzy that it is tread upon lightly in the mainstream media. From this very timidity, we know we have a problem. This sort of exploration, analysis and investigation have been relegated largely to the non-mainstream media, while individuals critiquing Islamic fanaticism who do appear on the MSM are savagely and relentlessly attacked, again demonstrating that, Houston, we have a problem. And it's a doozy on a par with that national crisis.

"In the past month, several terrorist attacks were aborted across the United States. The case of the runaway teenage ex-Muslim Christian convert Rifqa Bary has been all over the news. Islam is continually in the headlines, both globally and nationally, and not in a good way."

One Law for All campaign

I am a supporter of the Council of the Ex-Muslims of Britain and receive emails from its courageous founder Maryam Namazie. The Council consists largely of apostates from Islam who want to be free of sharia law. On November 21st there will be a worldwide demonstration against sharia law, spearheaded by the Council. Please support the rights of Muslims everywhere to choose how they wish to live!

Is atheism the answer? Part 4

If you're looking for something interesting to do, please read my newest Examiner article!

Is atheism the answer? Part 4

Here is a short excerpt:

It's been a couple of months since I began this series, and I've been putting off concluding it because it's such a huge subject and there's just too much to discuss. Yet, at the same time, in my own mind the whole theism-vs-atheism debate is entirely reconciled. And that is precisely the reason I am writing this series, which I thought might end with this entry but which may be continued...

If your perspective of reality as manifested on a daily basis in your interactions with others is hostile, aggressive and selfish, whether you are a theist or an atheist, your mindset is not an improvement over what we already find dominant. Fanaticism and extremism in any ideology is not the answer.

For the rest, go to:
