A Real Case Against Christianity – Part 1

A Real Case Against Christianity – Part 1

I have read many books on the origins of Christianity and it never ceases to amaze me how this new religion was forced down the throats of White Pagans by brutal force and intimidation until they were duped into believing it to be the religion of the White Race. The question that always comes to mind is why this “religion” had to be enforced on people ? If you`re going to create a new religion at least give people a choice if they want to accept it or not, and at least use your own symbolism, mythology and days of celebrations. Did these early Christians really think that they would be able to suppress the truth from those whose mission it is to search out the truth about the origins of Christianity and its twisted history ? The problem with anything that gets forced down your throat through fear, torture and intimidation, lies in the fact that there is something unnatural about it, something the people would not want to accept, something untrue. And this is exactly what we find when we examine the origins of Christianity, and fortunately for us, its all pinned down in historical facts, symbolism, mythology and days of celebrations which points to an earlier White Pagan spirituality. By stealing these elements from an earlier time, Christianity exposes itself as a fraud. Christianity changed natural, spiritual Paganism into metalized Christianity.

Although the early Christians lived in Rome, they made no attempt to assimilate into Roman culture, and like the Jews, they segregated themselves and saw themselves above the law. They were seen as traitors to the Roman state when they refused to profess loyalty to the Roman pantheon of gods. The Christians quickly became hated by the Romans and we read in Smiths` “The Death of Classical Paganism” the following : “They were ‘the ultimate filth’, a gang ‘of ignorant men and credulous women’, who ‘with meetings at night, solemn fasts and inhuman food’ made up ‘a hole-in-the-corner, shadow loving crew’, ‘silent in public but clacking away in corners’, ‘spitting on the gods and laughing at holy things”. Can you imagine ? Here we have a new religion that sees itself above the law and instead of moving out to a new land, they huddle together, spit and laugh at things which the Romans considered holy. Now you know why they were eventually fed to the lions. And this, a religion as late as 450, which still had at least 200 different gospels circulating in his own diocese. We read in the Catholic Encyclopedia that the “idea of a complete and clear-cut canon of the New Testament existing from the beginning, has no foundation in history” and, “In all the departments forgery and interpolation as well as ignorance had wrought mischief on a grand scale”. Before I continue, there is another excuse that Christians so often use when defending Christianity, and that is the falsehood that “these things you mention was done by the Catholic Church and not the Christians”. To this I say, the roots of Christianity lies in Catholicism. Catholicism is definitely not Islam or Judaism (the only three monotheistic religions), and although the authors are the same, Catholicism was early Christianity. In a similar way, a Protestant is not a Methodist or Presbyterian, but the one is an earlier form of Christianity.

The Roman philosopher Celsus had the following to say about the falsification of Christian writings in the second century, “Some of them, as it were in a drunken state producing self-induced visions, remodel their Gospel from its first written form, and reform it so that they may be able to refute the objections brought against it”. Scholars have shown that all four canonized Gospels have been doctored and revised, despite Church prohibitions against any further research into the origins of the Gospels. The question arises, “Why prohibit research into the origins of the Gospels ?” Sounds like the Holocaust story. Once again Christianity exposes itself devoid of truth, but yet followers are to believe it`s the word of God. The Church continually found cause for changing that truth, while claiming that truth was static in nature and had been revealed only once, but despite all the efforts, attempts at uniformity did not entirely succeed. When looking at the four canonized Gospels, they contradict one another. Jesus goes from an aristocrat descended from David via Solomon to a being from humble stock to a poor carpenter. He gets visited by kings in Matthew during his birth and by shepherds in Luke. In Mark and Matthew we are told that Jesus’s last words were “My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me ?” According to John he said “it is finished”, and according to Luke, “Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit”. When we look at the resurrection scene we also find contradictions as to what people saw.

Roman Emperor Constantine saw in Christianity a pragmatic means of bolstering his own military power and uniting the vast and troubled Roman Empire. This man who had his own son executed and his wife boiled alive, found the Church`s insistence upon uniformity very appealing. The new religion incorporated Paganism into their beliefs, their Son (Sun) of God based on the Pagan Roman Mithra, who was closely related to the sun gods Helios and Apollo. Although Christians still don`t have any evidence when Jesus was born, the day that was chosen was the 25th of December, close to the winter solstice, the birthday of Mithra. Other similarities to the Mithra story includes the shepherds, the last supper and the ascension, being the most prominent. The Christian holiday of Easter, correlating to the sun’s return to prominence around the spring equinox was stolen from Mithra’s ascension. A cave-temple dedicated to Mithra in Rome on the Vatican Hill was taken over by Christians, making it the seat of the Catholic Church. Pater Patrum, soon became the title for the bishop of Rome, Papa or Pope, the title of the Mithraic high priest. Once again the question arises : Why steal the Pagan gods for your new religion ? When confronted with this plagiarism, the fathers of Christianity explained the remarkable similarities of Mithraism as the work of the devil, declaring the much older legends of Mithraism to be an insidious imitation of the one true faith. How can older myths be stolen from later ones ? Also interesting to note the use of the devil concept which is exclusive to monotheism. The symbology was once again stolen from the Pagans, Pan the horned, cloven hoofed and flute-playing god. The difference between the Christian devil and Pan was that the former was used as an instrument of fear and intimidation for the weak of mind, while Pan like all the Pagan gods, was simply a personification of Natural Force.

The worship of Mary resembled the worship of faces of the Goddess, particularly that of mother/son traditions such as Isis/Horus, Juno/Mars, Cybele/Attis, and Neith/Ra, because Christianity paralleled Mithraism. To discourage her association with older pre-Christian faces of the Goddess, Mary’s significance was diminished. Sacred sites and temples, once dedicated to pre-Christian goddesses, were rededicated or replaced with churches for Mary. Cybele’s temple in Rome on the Esquitine hill was replaced by the the Santa Maria Maggiore. Isis’s sanctuary, near the Pantheon, was adjoined to a church dedicated to Mary while another was built on a site which had been dedicated to Minerva. The temple of the Phoenician goddess Tanit was supplanted by the Santa Maria on the Capitoline in Aracoeli. Shrines that were Aphrodite’s hallowed ground easily became those of Mary, who to this day is still called Panaghia Aphroditessa in Cyprus. Pagan temples were destroyed and pillaged. In the “The Death of Classical Paganism” we find written protest in 386 to the Roman government of Christian pillaging : If they [the Christians] hear of a place with something worth raping away, they immediately claim that someone is making sacrifices there and committing abominations, and pay the place a visit—you can see them scurrying there, these guardians of good order (for that is what they call themselves), these brigands, if brigands is not too mild a word; for brigands at least try to conceal what they have done : if you call them brigands, they are outraged, but these people, on the contrary, show pride in their exploits … they believe they deserve rewards !

In 392 the Christians took their new religion to greater madness by prohibiting ancient, multi-dimensional Pagan worship, and made it a criminal activity. Christians believed in but one face of God, it was now legally enforced, due to one religion. Because they believed God controlled in an authoritarian manner, they set about finding a way in which they, in God’s name, could exercise similar authoritarian control. Strangely enough, Judaism remained the only other legally recognized religion. Strange ? Not at all. Is this not what the Jews wanted, authoritarian control ? Is this not what we see today in our chaotic world of politics around the globe ? Indeed. But the control was to get far worse. In order to compel obedience the Church also developed a doctrine which justified its use of force and it was not long before the Church needed that doctrine to defend its violent suppression of heresy. Early heretics lent doctrinal validation to the Church’s control of the individual and society in response to the tenets formulated. The heresies led to particularly significant new doctrine, especially the ones surrounding Pelagius, Origen, the Donatists and the Mannichaeans. By opposing Pelagius, the Church adopted Augustine’s idea that people are in need of strong authority because they are incapable of choice and inherently evil. By castigating Origen’s theories of reincarnation, the Church upheld its belief that a person has but one life in which to obey the Church or risk eternal damnation as well as its belief in the unique physical resurrection of Christ. With the Donatists, the precedent of using force to compel obedience was established while the Church demonstrated its willingness to abandon its own beliefs for political expediency with the Mannichaeans.

Activity in the fields of medicine, technology, science, education, history, art and commerce all but collapsed as the Church assumed leadership. Europe entered the Dark Ages. What was defined as civilization disappeared, but in spite of this the Church amassed immense wealth during these centuries. The Christian Visigoths sacked Rome which had held strong for 620 years and criticism of the new religion intensified. Could you blame the Romans ? Although Christian scholars fiercely defend Christianity in Roman times, historical facts shows that the new religion played a huge role in the collapse of the Empire. The eastern Roman Empire, also called the Byzantine Empire, fared better under Emperor Justinian’s rule (527-565), but in 540 the bubonic plague struck claiming 10,000 people a day. In the end it is thought to have taken 100 million lives – the Roman Empire never recovered. The Church was the first to take advantage of the situation and further cement it authority by explaining that the plague was an act of God, and disease a punishment for the sin of not obeying Church authority. Justinian was branded a heretic and the field of Greek and Roman medicine was declared useless in fighting the plague, and to be heresy. As the Church strengthened with people flocking to the Church in terror, the plague assured the downfall of the Roman Empire. So it was no surprise that the Church dominated the formal discipline of medicine after the plague. A common medical practice between the sixth and sixteenth centuries used for every malady became “bleeding”, and Christian monks taught that bleeding a person would prevent toxic imbalances, prevent sexual desire, and restore the humors. This practice would kill tens of thousands each year, yet, when a person died during blood-letting, it was lamented that treatment had not been started sooner and performed more aggressively. The Church could never be wrong, how could they ? They were Gods representatives on earth !

With the Church becoming the most cohesive power in Western society, technology disappeared. Extensive aqueduct and plumbing systems vanished, after all, Orthodox Christians taught that all aspects of the flesh should be reviled and therefore discouraged washing as much as possible. Disease became commonplace as sanitation and hygiene deteriorated with the disappearance of toilets and indoor plumbing. Epidemics decimated towns and villages for hundreds of years while the Roman central heating systems were also abandoned. In the scientific community the losses were monumental. The burning of books and repression of intellectual pursuit by the Church set humanity back as much as two millennia in its scientific understanding. Pythagoras had come up with the idea that the earth revolved around the sun in the sixth century B.C.E.; Aristarchus had outlined the heliocentric theory and Eratosthenes had measured the circumference of the Earth by the third century B.C.E.; and Hipparchus had invented longitude and latitude and had determined the obliquity of the ecliptic by the second century B.C.E. It would not be until the sixteenth century C.E. that Copernicus would reintroduce the theory that the earth revolves around the sun. Galileo was tried by the Inquisition in Rome when he attempted to promote the heliocentric theory in the seventeenth century, and the Church would only revoke its condemnation of Galileo in 1965. In Lloyd M. Grahams` book “Deceptions and Myths of the Bible”, we read St. Augustine echoing the Church’s stone age understanding of the world : “It is impossible there should be inhabitants on the opposite side of the earth, since no such race is recorded by Scripture among the descendants of Adam”.

This clearly debunks the Christians` false notion that the White Race made huge advances under the new religion. With the rise of the Christian church came a severe economic collapse throughout the western world. By stigmatizing usury, which made funding economic ventures extremely difficult, they left the doors wide open for the Jew to amass enormous wealth and get control of the money system. Ancient academies of learning were closed and education for anyone outside of the Church came to an end. The little education there was during the Dark Ages were limited to the clergy, and was advocated by powerful kings as a means of providing themselves with capable administrators. One of the world’s greatest libraries in Alexandria, said to have housed 700,000 rolls, were burned down by the Christians in 391, together with all the books of the Gnostic Basilides, Porphyry’s 36 volumes, papyrus rolls of 27 schools of the Mysteries, and 270,000 ancient documents gathered by Ptolemy Philadelphus. This was the Christian holocaust against education and learning in action. In 398 bishops were forbidden to even read the books of gentiles by the Fourth Council of Carthage. Once again the question arises, why the need for the suppression of education and learning ? When confronted with these questions the Christian religion jumps from one excuse to the next. The answer is simple, a new order of control was being implemented, which today is clearly visible. The same questions were being asked in the Dark Ages and the same lies given, and the same actions implemented by the Christian followers. In his “Seven Books of Histories against the Pagans”, Augustine’s disciple, Orosius, demonstrated that the evils of the time could not be blamed on Christianity because earlier times had experienced even worse calamities. Through distortion and the rewriting of history, the impression was given that Christianity had not only lifted society from harsher, more barbaric times, but that a social structure of hierarchy and domination had always existed and was therefore inevitable. This was a lie. It was shown that Democracy originally date back not to the Greeks, but far earlier to the neolithic age, and these cultures show no evidence of hierarchy as we know it; they knew no war, organized oppression or slavery. For those interested can read “The Chalice and the Blade”, “Merlin Stone” and “When God Was a Woman” by Riane Eisler. The problem with most Christians is that they do not know the origins of their religion. The tragedy is that when someone shows them the truth about the origins of Christianity, you get labeled an anti-Christ. So be it.
