Alexander the Great died at the early age, of 33. Before his death in 323 B.C. he founded the illustrious city of Alexandria in Egypt. Ptolemy I (Ptolemy Soter), Pharaoh of Egypt, started a Museum and Library in Alexandria about a generation later. This library grew and eventually comprised of 400,000 volumes. In the continuing intellectual growth an additional Library was established in an adjacent quarter of the city in the Temple at Serapis. It eventually comprised of another 300,000 volumes. During the next several centuries Alexandria was not only the capital of Egypt, but the intellectual capital of the world. By the time of Julius Caesar in the first century B.C. Egypt became a Roman province. When Constantine became emperor in 313 A.D. he decreed Christianity the official religion of the Empire to the exclusion of all others. By this time Alexandria had become a hotbed of Christian subversion, and Constantine’s edict encouraged the Christians to attack the intellectuals, whom they termed as pagan. During the fourth century A.D. there lived in Alexandria a lovely intellectual woman by the name of Hypatia, the daughter of Theon. She grew up in an ideal intellectual climate, since her father Theon was a teacher, a mathematician and a philosopher. He taught her astronomy, astrology, mathematics and rhetoric. Hypatia was born in the year 355 A.D. She grew up to be a tall, slim, beautiful woman. Not only was she highly gifted intellectually, but she was unusually athletic. By the time she was 20 she could walk 10 miles without fatigue, could swim, row, ride horseback and climb mountains. She had bodily grace, beauty of face, and above all an abundance of intelligence.
By the time she began giving lectures of her own she was saying such things as : “Fables should be taught as fables, myths as myths, and miracles as poetic fancies. To teach superstitions as truths is a most terrible thing. The child-mind accepts and believes them, and only after great pain and perhaps tragedy can he be in after-years relieved of them. In fact, men will fight for a superstition quite as quickly as for a living truth – often more so, since a superstition is so intangible you cannot get at it to refute it, but truth is a point of view, and so is changeable.” Orestes, who was the prefect of the city, attended her lectures. When in one lecture Hypatia stated : “To rule by fettering the mind through fear of punishment in another world is just as base as to use force,” Orestea applauded her. News of this event was carried to Cyril, the then Bishop of Alexandria. He was infuriated and declared he would excommunicate Orestes. But neither Cyril nor Orestea could unseat each other, since both derived their power from the Emperor in Rome. The quarrel grew more acrimonious, with Bishop Cyril venting his pathological hatred more and more against Hypatia. In March of 415 A.D., several years after Bishop Cyril had come to power, when Hypatia was 60 years old, she left the lecture hall one night to enter a carriage and go home. She was viciously attacked by the Nitrian Monks leading a fanatical, hatefilled Christian mob. After first stripping her naked, she was barbarously murdered. She was then dragged through the streets by the mob, her flesh cut from her bones and finally burned piecemeal.
Her crime ? She told the truth about the Christians’ unreasoned and superstitious lies, she promoted learning and culture, and thereby undermined the power of the tyrannical Jewish-Christian power structure. When we examine what substantiated evidence there exists for the basic claims of Christianity, such claims as life in the “hereafter,” the existence of hell, the existence of heaven, the existence of spooks in the sky, and even the actual historical existence of that central figure of Jesus Christ himself, we find there is no evidence whatsoever. We repeat – none whatsoever that has the slightest basis in fact or genuine history. The sum total of all the so-called “evidence” that is the basis of all the Christian hocus-pocus is contained in the so-called “gospels” – Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Who wrote these garbled, self-contradictory concoctions nobody really knows, and it doesn’t much matter. Certainly there is nothing known about these characters except they are “credited” with writing the “gospels,” but what research can be done on this jumbled mess indicates that a number of unknowns had a hand in putting it together from some earlier myths. It is, however, extremely doubtful that there ever was a Matthew, Mark, Luke or John that had anything to do with writing the so called “gospels.” The Christian church, which in the first few centuries grew into the Roman Catholic Church, guaranteed its own “authenticity” and its own charter by a process of what is called arguing in a circle. It claims its principal authority from the gospels, based on Matthew 16:18 in which Jesus purportedly gives the church its charter : “And I say also unto thee, that thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.” The Roman Catholic church claims it is the church referred to, and has its credentials from Jesus Christ himself.
So who guarantees the authenticity of the “gospels ? Why, the Roman Catholic church does. Who guarantees the authenticity and authority of the Roman Catholic church ? Why, the gospels do. A perfect example of bad logic known as “arguing in a circle.” You have heard kids do it all the time. All it takes is a massive dose of propaganda dumped on gullible yokels to make it stick. It is the same as two con men working in collusion to be each other’s chief character witnesses. The principle is similar to one used by the Federal Reserve, a private organization of international Jewish bankers. They print up billions of worthless counterfeit Federal Reserve Notes, known as dollars. They are not backed by anything. Who guarantees the counterfeit notes ? Why the Federal Government does. Who elects, controls, owns and manipulates the Federal government ? Why, the international Jewish bankers do. Just as the average White yokel accepts the counterfeit dollars on faith, so also does he accept the Christian “spooks in the sky” story on faith. At this point it is well to remember our definition of faith : foolishly accepting as true a concept or an idea without bothering to check for valid evidence. The Christian churches strongly discourage anyone from seeking legitimate evidence. For that matter, they also vigorously condemn logic, reason, or the idea of thinking for yourself. They put a high premium on faith, i.e., child-like gullibility. They do not like to have you asking questions. They want gullible fools whose minds can be programmed to believe whatever they are told to believe. Otherwise, they make it plain, hell fire and damnation will be your dire penalty. Either you believe the spooks in the sky story as they tell it, or you fry in the hereafter. It is a powerful club and it has worked wonders on the gullible and superstitious for centuries. As we have pointed out earlier, the combination of gullibility and superstition has wreaked havoc on the White Race, and the Jewish mind manipulators have exploited those two human weaknesses to the tmost – to our detriment and to their benefit.
Where did Christianity come from ? Did a Jewish religious fanatic found it as the New Testament describes ? Our answer, to the last question is a flat no. Jesus Christ did not invent or found Christianity. All evidence that can be gleaned from a scholarly examination of authentic history points to an obvious conclusion : there never was any Jesus Christ roaming about in 30 A.D. or thereabouts teaching a new religion. (We have gone into more detail about this subject in Nature`s Eternal Religion.) The whole story was invented and concocted much later. It was patched together out of fables, myths, bits and pieces of other religions, until finally they had a movement going that pulled in the Roman Emperor Constantine. It was this Roman Emperor, who had the mind of a criminal, (he murdered his own wife and son, and thousands of others) who in the year 313 A.D. really put Christianity into business. The Romans, who had always been extremely tolerant to all religions, were now told by an edict of Emperor Constantine that Christianity was now the supreme religion of the empire to the exclusion of all others. At this time the Christian movement, although purportedly nearly 300 years old, still did not have a written text or “Bible.” Under the powerful and dictatorial direction of Emperor Constantine a convocation of church fathers was called at Nicaea, a town in Asia Minor. At this meeting a number of scripts and writings were dragged together and a heated controversy ensued over a period of several months. Many writings were considered, discussed, argued over, and reviewed. Some were revised, some were rewritten, some were rejected. The final package that emerged from the Council of Nicaea was what was called the New Testament, a contradictory, demented conglomeration of far-out nonsense. To it was patched the Jewish “Old Testament.” The Christian movement now had a “Bible,” with Constantine as final arbiter. When the gathered bishops would or could not agree, he would threaten to bring in his army, which was standing by outside, to enforce compliance.
Constantine exercised the full powers of his position, financially, militarily and in terms of legal enforcement to now promote Christianity and crush all opposition. Christianity was now on its way. Where did the ideas of Christianity come from ? As we have shown throughout, the Jews, who were scattered throughout the Roman Empire, have been Master Mind-manipulators of other peoples from the earliest beginnings of their history. They have always been at war with the host peoples they have infested like a parasite. When during the Jewish Wars of 68-70 A.D., Rome put down the Jewish rebellion in Judea and leveled Jerusalem to the ground, the Jews were thirsting for revenge. They were looking for a way to destroy Rome, the Roman race and its total empire. They had tried military opposition and failed miserably, being no match for the superlative Romans. They looked for an alternative – mind-manipulation through religion – and they found the right creed in a relatively unimportant religious sect called the Essenes. Since in Nature`s Eternal Religion we have already discussed the Essenes as being the precursors of Christianity, we will not repeat it here. Suffice it to say the teaching of the Essenes was the basic fabric on which Christianity was built. It was a suicidal teaching. The Jews recognized it as such, remodeled it slightly, then fed this suicidal poison to the Romans. How well they succeeded we have recorded elsewhere.
In the succeeding chapters we want to examine more closely how the Jews used Christianity and its horrible concept of hell as a powerful club on the minds of its victims, to frighten, to terrorize and to stampede its gullible victims into submission.
