Extract No3. Christianity is a virus

The Catholic Church is one of the most corrupt religions ever to be found in human history. Nothing compares quite like it. Call it what you will – a church is a church and in every church there is a priest who lies to the people in the pews through the invention of moral absurdities which do not touch reality at any point. It is for a reason that the last 1000 or so years as been aptly named ‘The Dark Ages’. The Catholic church continues to spread its infection on an unsuspecting public whilst those who refuse to be credulous look on in amazement at the rift that marks the species and separates the drones from the thinkers.

Diogenes Laertius held the opinion that all religion is born of fear. I too hold that opinion.

Extract on Liverpool evangelist:

Be a winner not a sinner – believe in Jesus and don`t be shallow – I`m not shallow like some people – there is crime on our streets and Jesus will eradicate it – Liverpool must become a Christian society – Jesus is love, the light and the way and all other religions will decieve you – if you don`t have Jesus in your life then you are a loser…

This professional nihilist and world-denier goes on like this in trembling and excited bingo-fashion to make crooked what is straight. And according to him if you don`t believe in Jesus Christ it implies you lack meaning in your life. Christianity is the biggest presumption there is. He is a sick man. He taps his foot on the ground and shakes his hands about like a deranged nervous mad man. He believes wholeheartedly that Christianity is the elixir of life; the antidote to all ills and evils; that the belief in Christ can rectify all the worlds problems. He believes that Christmas is for Christ and denies that Christianity stole Christmas from the pagans! This guy is no philosopher or historian ; he is a parasite and the police look upon him with reverence and though they may smile at him or even with him and bless him they will never bring themselves against bad taste and move the bugger on or at least arrest him for breach of the peace – that would be distastefull. Oh but what a sly and wicked man he is and his neighbour – the trumpet player – who is 100% Christian loving kindness and yet would not think twice about stabbing a knife in the heart of unbelievers.

As an atheist/humanist/agnostic the police are keeping a very close eye on me. There is an opinion that we unbelievers are the scum of the earth, have no morals, and bait up trouble. Well the law is an ass and I would happily break the law for the love of humanity and for the love of life and for the love of my destiny amor fati!. The police don`t like me and my atheist views and I have been arrested – yes I have been arrested for public disorder! And all because I refute Christianity. I believe Christianity is immoral, offensive, pernicious, dangerous and cursed.

The word on the street is that atheists must saty at home and not rock the boat – not tell the truth. Liverpool is steeped in English Christianity – psalm singing and praying and other such things. These Christians would rather pray and pray and pray and pray more and think that prayer is something that gets things done. Prayer never achieved a thing! The trumpet player I mentioned earlier who attacked me, believes he has seen miracles and that is all the proof he needs and I am a piece of shit and a bastard and evil and I should be killed, according to this peace loving and compassionate Christian. In all my years of talking and listening to Christians I have not once met a Christian who praises inteligence; everyone one of them have been anti-intellectual. Every Christian I have met has subjectively, objectively, historically stood truth on its head; refuted it….it does not bring them comfort but who said there was any harmony or happiness connected with the furtherance of truth?

No. The Christian lies. Every word is a fabrication; an attempt to twist the truth and make it what it is not and what it has never been. The rhetoric of the Christian which he has picked up from this book called the bible – the old testament and the new testament as one book for all is the biggest literary fraud that was ever devised. And worse is not to know Christian history – not to know who`s hands these books fell into – not to know that all religions are myths and make-believe and for all this to be presented to our enquiring and enlightened minds and still refute it!! – is surely the recipe for madness and to let the curse of everything subjective – to let everything fall before faith – faith in God. That to me is mental disorder. Madness. Insanity.

And just what do these madmen want the world to be like? Like them, of course! The whole world as a madhouse! The whole world as a hospital. The whole world steeped in meekness and wretched bigotry. The whole of humanity sucked dry and robbed of its essence. To quote Mikhail Alexandrovic Bakunin:

The idea of God implies the abdication of human reason and justice; it is the most decisive negation of human liberty and necessarily ends in the enslavement of mankind both in theory and practice. He who desires to worship God must harbor no childish illusions about the matter but bravely renounce his liberty and humanity.”

What is evil? Whatever springs from weakness. Christianity is for the botched and weak. Christianity is a sickness!

The Mandaeans

The Mandaeans were gnostics who broke away from the diaspora believed that John The Baptist was their prophet and teacher and they declared that Jesus Christ was either a false prophet or a total fabrication.

Where the Gods are favoured

Pagans had their gods but “God” in paganism is a word signifying agreement and union in all things.; that means a Pagan would have been one who says Yes to life. The pagan God is an embodiment of affirmation here on earth….untill Christianity came along and broke that mystical union and declared that all the pagan Gods were a temptation by the devil!

Pity and Suffering.

Any atheist, agnostic or unbeliever who has ever met a Christian at some time or another has been on the receiving end of what is known as pity. Is pity harmless? Or is it hostile?

Take a look at what Friedrich Nietzsche has to say on the subject of pity:

Christianity is called the religion of pity.- Pity stands in opposition to all the tonic passions that augment the energy of the feeling of aliveness: it is a depressant. A man loses power when he pities. Through pity that drain upon strength which suffering works is multiplied a thousandfold. Suffering is made contagious by pity; under certain circumstances it may lead to a total sacrifice of life and living energy–a loss out of all proportion to the magnitude of the cause. This is the first view of it; there is, however, a still more important one. If one measures the effects of pity by the gravity of the reactions it sets up, its character as a menace to life appears in a much clearer light. Pity thwarts the whole law of evolution, which is the law of natural selection. It preserves whatever is ripe for destruction; it fights on the side of those disinherited and condemned by life; by maintaining life in so many of the botched of all kinds, it gives life itself a gloomy and dubious aspect. Mankind has ventured to call pity a virtue (–in every superior moral system it appears as a weakness–); going still further, it has been called the virtue, the source and foundation of all other virtues–but let us always bear in mind that this was from the standpoint of a philosophy that was nihilistic, and upon whose shield the denial of life was inscribed. Schopenhauer was right in this: that by means of pity life is denied, and made worthy of denial–pity is the technic of nihilism. Let me repeat: this depressing and contagious instinct stands against all those instincts which work for the preservation and enhancement of life: in the role of protector of the miserable, it is a prime agent in the promotion of decadence- pity persuades to extinction….

I take it Nietzsche doesn`t like the idea of pity. Didn`t the Ancient Greeks think that pity was an evil because it was a weakness? The idea that a man loses power when he pitites is absolutely demonstratable by the fact that Christians resort to “prayer” for us as pity when they are confronted by the apparent embarrasment of not being able to provide historical facts or a suitable rebuff against OUR argument. When a Christian is blocked into a corner he or she will resort to pity: it is a loss of power, as Nietzsche describes it.

Many Christians no doubt feel and think that pity is a virtue but the Greeks divined otherwise; they thought pity was a vice. I keep on saying this but life is not about virtue but about fitness. Whatever springs from strength must be worthy of life and whatever springs from weakness denies it.

The Last Men

Whilst doing some shopping today on my way to Tescos I bumped into about 8 old men and women. They were Christians. They had one of those placards which was written some quote from the bible…something about sin and hell. I approached one of them and told them that the quote they are using was taken from one of Paul`s fake letters.

Straight away he said that “Jesus loves you”. I said, “Did you not hear what I just said: Paul`s letters about 7 of them are considered fake by many historians, theologians and biblical experts.”. He looked at me with a look that could kill and then he completely ignored me and proceeded to preach to the passers-by. I re-approached him a second time and he avoided me. I approached a woman instead who was about 60-70 years old. I asked her “Have you read the Gospel of Mary Magdalene or the Gospel of Judas?” she replied “You are going to hell” and then I said “But your friend over there just said Jesus loves me, why would he send me to hell?”. Another guy intervened and he gave me his leaflet and he asked me “Have you read the bible?” I said “Yes, I have studied it and I know quite a few inconsistencies, lies and fabrications”. Just as he was about to speak I cut in very quickly and I told him that there are no original copies of the gospels, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John are pseudipigraphic and are written in the Midrashic tradition; they are titled “according to”. The earliest manuscript dates from the fourth century only. The bible was redited, revised, translated and re-written by Church propagandists in order to deny any inconsistencies in the face of criticism. I went on and on really about the Catholic church and I touched upon the Essenes and the Jesus of the Talmud and the Cult of Horus and Mithra. I was of course, wasting my time. It was as if everything I said and explained was like water of a duck`s back. Talk about a glazed expression over the eyes! These old-timers are entrenched in their own indoctrination. I reckon not one of them has even seen a computer. I bet none of them have asked themselves honestly whether what they believe in they believe in because they want to believe it or they have been indoctrinated by it; persuaded and seduced by it. Whether they are just part of those generations who were brought up with it because it was the community done thing. English Christianity is for the old; it is a dying synchretism of religion. Young people will be indoctrinated with its morality and its story and the picture of Jesus who “forgives” and has “mercy” and the saga of the crucifixtion and how aweful and shameful it all is and then rebel against it. Sure the young are nihilistic but their kind of nihilism is better than the nihilism of Christianity. I`d rather have a thousand natural vices then one unatural virtue [I think Oscar Wilde said that].

Friedrich Nietzsche once said “Life is not about virtue, but about fitness” and how right he is. Christianity has survived this long and thsoe virtues Jews of Old Judaism – didn`t they just perish very quickly!

Anyway I had some support today from a yound girl who I thouht was about to wallop me. She joined with me. And went up to one of the Christians and asked them a few questions. She came back to me furious and they told her that she is going to hell. She might join my AtheistEmpire group in June sometime. She told me the story when her grandfather died he insisted that no religious ceremony take place. He was against religion. Apparently, the church found this unsettling and the family [Church go-ers every Sunday] was excomunicated from their local parish. She was angered. She also told me of an episode where her little brother had come home from school with an idea that her sister should pray to Jesus. She replied “Why don`t you pray to Mary Magdalene?” to which his reply was “You are not welcome in this house”.

The Mysteries

As a child I loved the stories contained in Greek and Roman mythology. My grandfather gave me a red book which contained every Greek and Roman hero, god, godess, titan, nymph; it was all in there. I loved the beautifully drawn pictures with their muscles and the way they stood so strong, noble and elegant. My favourite picture was Ares [Mars]. One story in particular remained a favourite with me. I can remember only bits of it but lately I have looked again at this story. I will reveal the story in another post on this blog. As a lover of Greek mythology as a child I was often misunderstood by my school teachers and my mother and step dad who thought that I actually believed that these stories and myths they really happened. I never believed such a thing but I was enchanted by it all. I didn`t get much praise for the interest in mythology and I did get some scorn from the school teachers who were either Catholic or Christian of some denomination. Because of my interest in Greek and Roman mythology some of the teachers at my school fabricated a story about me sacrificing some chickens [because my step-dad kept chickens in the backyard] to the devil. My mother and step dad was soon visited by social security to investigate it. Now I never believed that these myths were true but I was enchanted by them. I can appreciate them more now because most of the stories of Greek and Roman mythology contain secret mystery teachings.

The story of Jesus Christ is simply mythology from a Jewish soil but today Christianity is believed to be real instead of it simply being a story with hidden meaning.  The Gnostic Christians, for example were declared heretics by the Literalist Christians of the Catholic Church in the 3rd century onwards. At the start of the 2nd century much earlier the Jesus story was taught by the fathers of the first new Christian Churches to those Jews [who were disatisfied with Judaism but could not leave the magic of its old stories] as a real true story. When these Jews were ready they were taught that these stories were merely myths that contained secret encoded messages. The Literalist Christians grew in number and finally everywhere people believed that the story of Jesus was real. Meanwhile the real truth about Jesus got buried because the mysteries were taught less and less. One such  episode of this is Paul`s [St.Paul] horror at finding that some of the Churches of the diaspora were not being taught the true way and he sought to correct them.

Most of the letters of Paul are considered fakes; the fakes are literal Christian letters [probably written by 3rd-4th and even 5th century Church propagandists who sought to beat and supress the gnostic message] whilst the real ones are clearly gnostic and they show Jesus as a mythical figure. All those letters and no-one writes back!  The teachings of Jesus if one looks further can be found in the Neo-platonist philosophies. The words of the sermon on the mount, for example, appears curiously in Plato [some say almost word for word] – “turn the other cheek…” comes from something Plato once said and “it is easier for a camel..” is curiously said better by Plato too. In the cult of Horus, Horus gives some kind of sermon on a mount. Now all this is my point to illustrate that all the religions contain some teachings and that through time the literal belief in these stories took widespread view and the truth of them; the inner meaning of these stories got lost. In the context of the Jesus story the Catholic Church headed by propagandists and other fathers have distorted the true meaning of the story of Jesus Christ which is:  The Jesus story is a myth; a Jewish/Hebraic story that contains messages almost those same messages that appear in many pagan myth stories.

The first Christians were gnostic and intended their messiah and Jesus story to be taken like the Dionysians take their Messiah Dionysus to be the son of God and saviour of mankind and to bring eternal salvation. Unfortunately, Jews disatisfied with Judaism had to be taught a literal version [which is why much of Jesus is similar to the Joshua story of Judaism concerning miracles, etc] to soften the blow, so to speak. Over time when a literal believer was ready he would be taken aside and taught the truth that Jesus and his story is merely intended as allegory for higher mystical truths. Pauls Christianity is just that. This is one reason that I am not a Christian because I believe that the first Christians didn`t believe in a real Jesus Christ; only the rabble; the masses believed he was real [because they were taught so] and that is very true even today. Just take a look at the real letters of Paul and you`ll find out that Jesus appears as a mythical character. Even better just take a look at the Catholic Churches history and you`ll find many many centuries of Church leaders scrambling around and plundering the myths and stories of other cults, making use of historical records, editing them back and forth in an attempt to make their literalist Christianity version the more believeable and so keep the critics silent.

One critic in particular is Celsus in his work Against the Christians and The True Doctrine. Celsus was hated and despised by the Catholic Church for centuries [as they was also with Porphyryr] and they burnt all his books. Read this guy if you read nothing else! 

My points that may prove that the Christian religion is a false piety: 1. Early Christians [the gnostics paganised Jews] believed in a mythical Christ saviour and God-man.

2. Church propagandists believing in a literalist version gained power and ascendency and taught the uneducated masses this literalism and spread itself out untill it achieved official recognition.

3. The pagan cults and their dieing and resurrecting god-men stories predate Christianity.: Horus, Mithra, Dionysus.

4. The abolition of pagan cults at the council of Nicea and Constantine made first Christian emperor of
Rome and erected   the Christian belief and cult into an official religion of
Rome and still infused with paganism [Sol Invictus].

5. The works of Celsus and Porphyryr.

6. The Gnostic Gospels found at Nag Hamadi; the Q gospels; the sea scrolls.

7. The earliest known copy of a Christian text is dated in the 4th century only. None earlier than this has been found. The gospels contradict one another, written in the Midrashic tradition of telling myths and stories. 

To stress the point I want every Christian to know that I have no problem with Christians so long as they believe in what they believe in as a form of allegoricalism. I do have a problem with these Christians who believe that the story of Jesus really happened. It never happened; he isn`t real. He is a character penned from the Talmud [and possibly from other seditious leaders called Jesus way back] and then infused with divinity from the remnants of other pagan cults and made believable at the hands of Church progandists! Something is very wrong when the teachings of a cult or religion are buried beneath the weight of literalism that distorts and muddles its true message. A good example of this is in the scene from Monty Python were a rabbi or soothsayer gathering a crowd of people says “Blessed are the meek..” and only a few at the front hear it but the greater number hear different “Blessed are the seekers and soothsayers” [my version]. And at the far back they think they hear; “Blessed are the cheese-makers…”. This is what has happened within the history of Christianity as a distorted version was taught to those who could only hear its message from the far back! 

In a nutshell the true message of Christianity brought by paganised Jews is roughly the same message that we find in many pagan mystery religions: that we are all suffering, we all have a cross to bare, and we all are divine, we die to the lower self and get resurrected. The pagans thought that the mysteries of their teachings were to be found inside everyone and hence why Christianity today still maintains its gnostic message “Christ is in you“. How many Christians know that today? A denial of the mystery message contained within the set up character of Jesus Christ is what constitutes Christian belief today by many literal believers. Dionysus, Horus, Mithra and possibly many other such dieties and God-men are simply the templates that paganised Jews used with good and bad effect to erect a Jewish religion for those Jews cut off from Judaism. Roman emperors soon settled for the Jewish version but infused it with pagan meaning. Over time Christianity was established as the one true official religion; all other cults fell by the way side and often died out altogether. Cults that didn`t die out got integrated into the Jewish theme [Christmas; nativity, fir tree, etc]. 

Overall when I look at all this and when I see before my eyes the distorting message of Christianity; the denial and the broken seal of the pagan mysteries which infused vitality and world magic into their religions I often shift from feelings of anger to boiling rage to feelings of tragedy and depression. For many atheists and unbelievers the mystery of life has took place by science and other cold ways of looking at the universe. The mystery has been robbed of its intrinsic value and its significance. But were pagans happy? I don`t know. But the mysteries that they taught did give life a different take on things and perhaps some were intoxicated by the mysteries which gave them some profound happiness. Perhaps there were unhappy pagans who practised their paganism because of fear or something like that. Who knows? Also there probably is no reason for thinking that the messages contained with these mysteries are meant to give us happiness. I see no connection between truth and happiness anyway. The truth hurts; it is often ugly. But I do see that the eyes needed for creating newer and better religions has been robbed from us and I make Christianity the number one culprit for this tragic and criminal act.  Nietzsche was right when he said “2000 years and no new God!” In my attempt and effort to refute Christianity both inside of me as a personal and spiritual looking back into the history of the European and outside of me as a social and neo-spiritual looking forward into the future of humanity to present meaning and significance for living life I must inevitably come upon religion not as a super-power of fear, literalist lies and propagandism as in the case of the Catholic Church but instead as a way of infusing a seemingly cold and often isolated universe and existence with warmth, meaning and magic. Humans being need mystery; science is too cold; useful but too cold. Men and women need mystery but it must transfigurate life and not hide behind a lie or other world. A mystery needs its characters and stories to carry it off – let`s not believe that these Characters are real but instead learn their message that they embody and signify. If you don`t need the Mysteries then that is okay. No shame. No guilt. And certainly no punishment. You are no lesser or greater than anyone else. You want to infuse existence; your life with the flames of ice and cold hard reason and facts. Take science and be warmed by its coldness. Take what you need. Use it. Have the freedom to change and change back again.If you do need the Mysteries then that is okay too. No shame. No guilt. No punishment. You are no lesser or greater than anyone else. You just like to infuse existence; your life with heat and tension and the reflection of forms and grand divine truths. Take gods, goddesses and heros and heroines and be warmed and enchanted by their stories. Take what YOU need too. Use it. Have the freedom to change and change back again.The Mysteries are only masks of knowledge; they are designed to carry a message.

I welcome all atheists, agnostics, and unbelievers as they look to science, cold hard facts, historicis, and the material atomistic world for meaning in their life and that this can give cooling relief from the heat and passion of the mysteries that the interpreters say they have knowledge of. And I also welcome the interpreters; the interpreters of the mysteries not as pomp and ceremony; not as literal believers but as people who are clever and understand that all our religions contain messages that can offer a little magic and enchantment; that they are myths and that they contain spiritualisation that may be useful to humans. Knowledge carries forward; belief makes stupid! The Mysteries contained in these religions, Christianity, Judaism, Mithraism, Horus cults, etc, etc all convey the same sort of message more or less. None of them were intended for their literal use. All of them try to configurate life and convey a mystical teaching to carry forward whatever truth it might reveal to humans. Story telling will always do this. But to believe that the stories themselves are true is nothing short of tragic; nothing short of a depressing realization that today such literal belief has guided the destinies of men and women! No wonder our world is becoming inceasingly hostile, no wonder people are dispirited and wonder whether they are comming or going thinking that happiness lies solely in material things. I`m not in any way saying that knowledge brings about goodness or happiness at all but what I am saying is that humans are thinking beings that have in their veins and blood a will towards mystery and magic and of course if mystery is what we are and what some of us might need on our particular “path” then surely it is better to be what we are and tread that path than supress it or deny it outright or demolish that path and opt for a sea and swim in it without a compass. I like science. It cools things down. It  moulds the Mysteries into a form that closely resembles cold hard facts. It can remove the splinters that the Mysteries might create and it can smooth out the rough edges of the Mysteries when they get too metaphysical and too absurd. 

My 5 key points: 1. The Mysteries are useful as a form of human spiritual meaning of which the storys and characters are pure myth and are not true.

2. Science is the great cooler and can offer relief from the passion and heat from the fires of the Mysteries.

3. A literal belief in the Characters and stories that the Mysteries are contained within must be stamped out.

4. Science when it becomes unchecked and intrudes on the Mysteries is a form of nihilism which can be harmfull but it is a path to knowledge nevertheless and must be checked by humans to avoid it becoming over-bearing.

5. The Mysteries must be checked too and prevented from becoming over-bearing. Too much of the Mysteries can harm us as there will no doubt be people who will take up a literal belief and assert their literalism and stiffle young minds with false doctrines.  

The Mysteries operate behind science as a mouldable mechanism operating in the background whilst science offers a relief from this mechanism and we are able to reflect and take a step away [not back. Science and spiritual Mystery is always a looking foward; always stepping forward] from the Mysteries as its heat might scorch us too much. When science gets too cold the Mysteries once again comes into the fore and we are able to connect once again with that very old instinct called religion or cultism, better said. If it is true that humans are faced with the instinct for mystery and allegorical meaning then it may do us well not to deny our spiritual past; but we must stop this literal nonsense that our religions have come to signify.  A literal belief is madness; madness that borders on injustice and bad business as the history of the Dark ages of the Catholic Church and today with Islamic fundamentalism illustrates. Sure, an unliteral or belief by gnosis might also be madness but that kind of madness is just imagination and intellect and the path of knowledge and its twists and turns and many divertions and I don`t think [if it transfigures and embodies life itself] that it necessarily makes bad businness. I see knowledge as a form of power that is unavoidable for humans. Like I said, ‘belief’; ‘literal belief’ is NOT knowledge. Literal belief lacks vitality; it symbolises the closed eyes cut off and denied and because it breaks, distorts and poisons the orginal seal of the Mysteries. Christianity with its literal rabble and absurd moralism as envisioned by church fathers came along and broke all the Mystery seals! 

What is needed today is a Heraclitus, a Herodotus, a Plato or Socrates, a Marcus Aurellius or Julian the apostate or some other pagan; someone to approach Christianity and take it by the ear and tell it how naughty and mischievious it has been and how it has led astray the greatest part of European man and a civilisation for more than 2000 years and lied to it about what the true use and meaning of religion, mysticism, thought, God should be for. 

The Christian religion has broken the sacred seal of the pagans which infused the sacred message of self-transfiguration and personal power over the seeming futility of existence given by the atomists and cold philosophers of the past. Now that the seal is broken forever existence is futile and many people feel that life lacks meaning; a nihilism encroaches into the picture.  The Christian is born from this nihilism because it has broken the original seal that the pagans tried to furnish their lives with for centuries. The Christian is the Nihilist. He believes in a true message by a true character carrying the message and now the character itself whether historically human or historically divine or not becomes more important than the actual message and you have what is called the Catholic demoniation of the Christian religion. You have so-called born again Christians who believe in a literal Jesus Christ. That kind of literal belief heralds the death of its message and not as some Christians would have us believe is the proof of its authenticity of its claims.

Extract No.2: Horus the Son of God

******** wrote:

“In the Harvard Theological Review, Bruce M. Metzger pointed out in 1955: ‘Some of the supposed parallels are the result of the modern scholar’s amalgamation of quite heterogeneous elements drawn from various sources. As Schweitzer pointed out, “Almost all the popular writings fall into this kind of inaccuracy. They manufacture out of the various fragments of information a kind of universal Mystery-religion which never actually existed, least of all in Paul’s day.”‘

There is no proof of Pauls existence. He was a set up character penned from the works of Jospehus who mentions a Saul of Tarsus who persecuted a few cult followers. There is no reason to believe that this St. Paul was a real person and neither that he used to be called Saul [of Tarsus] We have grounds for good reason to believe that the Church propagandist of the 5th [or was it the 4th?] century Eusebius “making use of the works of Josephus” and editing certain historical texts such as this one. There is no reason and no evidence to show that the Saul mentioned in the works of Josephus is the Christian churches very own St. Paul and there is no evidence for the existence of Paul either!

Even considering for a very brief moment that he [Paul] did exist in the first century persecuting some Jesus followers it simply does not explain away the theory that there was no universal mystery religion around at is time is false. Isis was always a virgin and Horus who was a falcon was always known as the good shepherd born of a virgin birth [The nativity of Horus is just like that of the nativity of Christ] and was always known as the son of Ra-Osiris [son of God].

The egyptian cult of Horus is older than Christianity. The idea of a son of God, born a virgin birth, heralded by angels, born in a cave or stable, surrounded by cattle, three wise Zoroastrian star-gazers following a star [with the exception of the Horus nativity which had three astral-deities who were named by stars and who no doubt did follow a star to the birth place of Horus] was an idea conceived well before Christianity. And once again biblical scholars point out to us that the idea of a son of God appears in Daniel and even alluded to in Enoch: this is not true! The words of Daniel are “Son of Man” not “Son of God”.

I`m sure you know there are a million and one books about the things I am writting here and I have read a lot of them. There can be no doubt that the cult of Horus is a strong contender for the position that takes Christianity to be a religion of theft; a synchretic religion. And because Christianity has many disguises taken from other cults it can use those Mysteries whatever they may be and incorporate them into its own intestines and even call them its own original idea as in the case of many Christians who still believe that Christmas is about Jesus and not about pagan festivals and the Vernol Equinox.

The Error of Responsibility

I`ve just found this interesting paragraph in the works of Friedrich Nietzsche. A lesson for all moralizers and Christians:

 “So we make people responsible first for the impact of their actions, then for their actions, then for their motives, and finally for their nature. Ultimately, we learn that this nature is also not responsible, since it is an absolutely inevitable result and a concretion of the elements and influences of the past and present things: hence, people cannot be held responsible for anything, including their nature, their motives, their actions, and the impact of their actions.”

Nietzsche concludes:

 “We therefore realize that the history of moral feelings is the history of an error, the error of responsibility.”

I agree 100% percent with Nietzsche. And to use a Krishnamurti expression; “Human beings are not free from their past conditioning.”.  The reason that Christians and other moralizers [and so too those Karmajunkies] feel that every human being is accountable for their actions is because they believe in absolute free will. But the belief in absolute free will is just a belief, isn`t it?Absolutes are tricky. A man in chains is free to pick his nose, touch the ground, move about a little bit but he cannot break free of his shackles; he can`t go for a stroll or run around. The will might be like this example. I really don`t see any evidence anyway of free will or even that the will is totally restricted. The idea that the will is totally restricted and tragically bound to shackles is absurd but I think too that free will which is totally free of any constraints is also absurd since we cannot be free from our conditioning. And I don`t excuse or believe those numbskull religious nuts who say [dreaming of the 12 tribes of Israel] the reason that man is not free is because he has gone astray and lead by the devil. What rot! Why speak about the will in those terms if all you have is some excuse of ethical semi-religious nonsense?

No-one has yet proved what the will is really like. But it does seem the case that the will is free and it is not free and neither case to be taken in the absolute.

Is truth a good thing or is it something we must not find out what it is? Imagine a society that doesn`t punish people for commiting a crime?

Within the walls of society however the ‘truth’ of the philosophy I have given above is oppressed and even turned on its head. Human beings are moralizers. ‘Truth’ might not be something good or even proper. The false may indeed enable humans to live in a society that makes someone murder us pay for that murderous act. Justice might lend itself to the false and erroneous interpretations of actions and of cause and effect and keep us all sleeping well in our beds at night. If that is the case then we have to find or furnish some middle ground. If we can`t live with the ‘truth’ and humans must look for the ‘truth’ then we need to protect ourselves from this ‘truth’ so as to not “perish”.

The cult of Horus

Does the cult of Horus prove that Christianity is false?

Some parallels between Horus and Jesus Christ:

1. Horus born of a virgin. <> Jesus born of a virgin.

2. The foster father of Horus was Seb or Seph. <> Jesus was fostered by Joseph.

3. Horus was of royal descent. <> Jesus was of royal descent.

4. Horus birth accompanied by three solar deities [star gazers] who followed by the morning star of Sirius bearing gifts.  <> Jesus birth accompanied by three wise men [Zoroastrian star gazers] who followed by a star “in the east” bearing gifts.

5. The birth of Horus announced by angels. <> The birth of Jesus announced by angels.

6. Herut tried to murder the infant Horus. <> Herod slaughtered every first born in an attempt to kill Jesus the forthcoming messiah.

7. Horus is baptized at age 30 by Anup the Baptiser at a river. <> Jesus is baptized at age 30 by John the Baptist at a river.

8. Horus resists temptation by the evil Sut [Sut was to be the precursor for the Hebrew Satan] on a high mountain. <> Jesus resists temptation by Satan on a high mountain.

9. Horus had 12 followers. <> Jesus had 12 disciples.

10. Horus performed miracles like healing the sick and walking on water. <> Jesus performed miracles like healing the sick and walking on water.

11. Horus raised someone from the grave [his father Osiris] <> Jesus raised Lazarus [notice the name similarity] from the grave. Lazarus is short for Elasarus – the “us” on the end is romanized. Elasarus was derived from “El-Asar” which was the name given to Osiris. 

12. Horus was buried and resurrected in the city of Anu. <> The place Bethany mentioned in John was a derivative of the words “Bet” and “Anu” which translates “the house of Anu”. The ‘y’ on the end of bethany is interchangeable with the letter ‘u’.

13. Horus was killed by crucifixtion. <> Jesus was crucified.

14. Horus was accompanied by two thieves at the crucifixtion. <> Jesus was crucified with two thieves.

15. Horus was buried in a tomb at Anu. <> Jesus was buried in a tomb located in Bethany [Bet-Anu].

16. Horus was resurrected after 3 days. <> Jesus was “said” to resurrected after over a period of three days.

17. The resurrection of Horus was announced by three women. <> The resurrection of Jesus was announced by three women.

18. Horus was given the titel KRST which means “anointed one” <> Jesus was given the title Christ [Christos] meaning “anointed one”

horus, Lord of the sky

19. Horus was considered the Good Shepherd amongst other names identified as a falcon to watch over shepherds, flocks and other grazing cattle. <> Jesus was called the Good Shepherd amongst other names the same for Horus.

20. Horus is associated with fish and is linked with the star sign Pisces. <> Jesus is also associated with fish [and fishermen] and has Pisces as his star sign.

Horus

Horus in the Egyptian religion, like Mithra [Persian/Aryan?] is seen as the God of Light. The Christian God is also the God of light: I am the light, the way, the truth….. .

Stories from the life of Horus had been circulating for centuries before Jesus birth (circa 4 to 7 BCE). If any copying occurred by the writers of the Egyptian or Christian religions, it was the followers of Jesus who incorporated into his biography the myths and legends of Horus, not vice-versa.  – an extract from the ReligiousTolerance website.
