Early Hebrews Were Not Monotheists

It is a common belief that the Hebrew people, beginning with Moses, were monotheists whose one god, Yahweh, was the only true god, as revealed exclusively to Hebrew prophets. These original monotheists, it is believed, were superior to and had the...

How the Christianity Myth Grew Out of the Hebrew Myth

If we look to the archaeological evidence to support the Old Testament, we will find much less than expected. Although the texts make the Jewish people appear to have been a force to be reckoned with in the region, there is no evidence of grand...

Blessed are the Gullible

The existence of tombs or other sacred sites proves little in itself, since it is a common practice to set up symbolic sites, the symbolism of which no doubt becomes lost to the masses. Sacred site-making is also great business -- imagine owning the...

What Did Jesus Say About Prayer?

That should be a simple question for you Christians to answer, and a mighty important one. Surely you believers are willing, or even eager, to share that information with all. Sheisme couldn't answer that easy question. How about the rest of you...

A Whole Field of True Crosses

It is reported that when Helena's [the mother of the Christian emperor Constantine] representative inquired in Jerusalem as to the "Lord and Savior Jesus Christ", no one had ever heard of him except, reputedly, one old man, who promptly showed...

The Foundation of Christianity is No Less Fictitious

Under Nero fiction thrived, as the emperor had an insatiable appetite for Greek and Roman literature, such that he sparked a renaissance, no doubt with numerous poets, playwrights and novelists vying for imperial favor and patronage. Such was the...

Gnosticism

Although the Christian conspirators were quite thorough in their criminal destruction of the evidence, especially of ancient texts, such that much irreplaceable knowledge was lost, from what remains we can see that the scholars of other schools and...

The Religion that Couldn't Lie Straight

The gospel accounts of Jesus' passion and resurrection differ utterly from each other, and none states how old he was when he died. In fact, the early Church fathers were constantly bickering over how old the Lord was when he died, with Irenaeus --...

Christianity Began as Gnosticism

Christianity began as Gnosticism, refaced with falsehoods concerning a series of facts alleged to have been historical, but which are demonstrably mythical. By which I do not mean mythical as exaggerations or perversions of historic truth, but...

Holy Plagiarism

Horus was the son of Seb, his father on earth. Jesus is the son of Joseph, the father on earth. Horus was with his mother the Virgin until twelve years old, when he transformed into the beloved son of God as the only-begotten of the father in heaven....

What Christians Don't Get about Abortion

Christians object to abortion because it is murder. Abortion conflicts with their religious principles and their belief that all life is precious.   That is a very peculiar stance for Christians, however. Their God of love has killed far more...

Abortion

If conservatives were smart, they would not only gladly fund Planned Parenthood, but they would also offer a ride to any liberal on her way to the abortion clinic. Allowing an unwanted child to be born to a single mother who isn't smart enough or...

The Problem with Paul

Is it conceivable that a preacher of Jesus could go throughout the world to convert people to the teachings of Jesus, as Paul did, without ever quoting a single one of his sayings? Had Paul known that Jesus had preached a sermon, or formulated a...

Pious Deception and Fraud

The narrative gospels can no longer be viewed as the trustworthy accounts of unique and stupendous historical events at the foundation of the Christian faith. The gospels must now be seen as the result of early Christian mythmaking.    Burton...
