Religious “faith” makes stupid.

I find the words ‘open’ ‘honest’ and ‘faith’ to be some kind of comedy that would make even Shakespeare die of laughter. The commandment ‘love thy neighbour’ is not exclusive to Christianity – it was not even Jesus`s teaching – it came from the teachings of Lao Tzu and Confucius which were brought to the libraries of Alexandria as Jewish pagan centre for learning. Subsequently the library was burnt down by Christians – thousands of books were burnt, teachings lost but those Christians knew what they were doing when they burnt that library -it was all part of the big plan.

Jesus was a mythical pagan figure brought to the Jews. The Jews already had Joshua their messiah but Judaism was clearly dieing on its knees as Judea, Palestine and Jerusalem became more and more Hellenised. With the help of St. Paul of Tarsus [incidently a place of paganism and Greek learning] Paul brought the element of the Logos into Gnostic Christianity [I might add that Paul probably never existed was used as a set up character penned from the works of Josephus who mentions a Saul of Tarsus going round persecuting some religious nuts] . The Christ [Christos in Greek] was set up as a mythical figure encoded with secret messages just like that of the cult of Dionysus, Horus and Osiris who incidently in the case of Dionysus was born from Semele a virgin mother, in the case of Horus born from the virgin womb of Isis, Dionysus-Osiris was killed by authorities similar in status to Roman viceroy Pontius Pilate, and in the case of Dionysus-Osiris was crucified for the forgiveness of sins of the community, risen from the dead and performed miracles.

 All this info is compelling to me to say the least but stupidity and arrogance is rife and many of the adherents of our precious religions continue to be umoved by this info and simply refute it on the grounds that it is inconsistent with their accursed subjective viewpoint. Historical information means nothing to these parasites of humanity. Grow and learn and and “the truth will set you free” but if you don`t learn you won`t grow. Common sense if you ask me.

Freidrich Nietzsche once quoted “faith” means the will to avoid knowing what is true” and how right he is!
