The stories about "Jesus" as told in the Gospels and reflected in Paul's
ramblings do not match that of a Zealous Jew. The Zealot's were angry, their
writings were angry, their actions were aggressive. Many of the sayings
attributed to "Jesus" were sayings that a Zealot could not have uttered,
they would be anathema. The writings of the "Community" were typical
primitive mosaic writings. Their god is an angry god. A mountain god. A
Jewish god. So how do we resolve the dilemma?

The Messianic-resurrection God that we read about in the bible with the name
of Jesus was not the same Jesus as the "Brother of James", but as Paul said,
"My Christ" and "another Jesus".

This is not a new idea. Emperor Julian, who, coming after the reign of the
fanatical and murderous "good Christian" Constantine, returned rights to
pagan worshippers, stated, "If anyone should wish to know the truth with
respect to you Christians, he will find your impiety to be made up partly of
the Jewish audacity, and partly of the indifference and confusion of the
Gentiles, and that you have put together not the best, but the worst
characteristics of them both." Pope Leo X, privy to the truth because of his
high rank, made this curious declaration, "What profit has not that fable of
Christ brought us!" In the gospels themselves, which were composed sometime
around the middle of the 2nd century CE, their pretended authors, the
apostles, give sparse histories and genealogies of Jesus that contradict
each other and themselves in numerous places. Most of us are aware of at
least some of the contradictions, and much of the revisionism is painfully
obvious. We
also have the fierce attacks by the Christians on the Gnostics who
strenuously objected to the carnalization of their deity.

The Christians can be shown to have taken many of the characteristics of
their god and godman from the Gnostics. The refutations of the Christians
against the Gnostics reveal that the Christian godman was an insult to the
Gnostics,
who held that their god could never take human form and that claims that he
could were "unrighteous". Now where have I seen that formulation before :->

When we look at history, we see the parallels with other earlier mythical
gods. Some of them are:
Adad of Assyria
Adonis, Apollo, Heracles ("Hercules") and Zeus of Greece
Alcides of Thebes
Attis of Phrygia
Baal of Phoenicia
Bali of Afghanistan
Beddru of Japan
Buddha of India
Crite of Chaldea
Deva Tat of Siam
Hesus of the Druids
Horus, Osiris, and Serapis of Egypt, whose long-haired, bearded appearance
was adopted for the Christ character
Indra of Tibet/India
Jao of Nepal
Krishna of India
Mikado of the Sintoos
Mithra of Persia
Odin of the Scandinavians
Prometheus of Caucasus/Greece
Quetzalcoatl of Mexico
Salivahana of Bermuda
Tammuz of Syria (who was, in a typical mythmaking move, later turned
into the disciple Thomas)
Thor of the Gauls
Universal Monarch of the Sibyls
Wittoba of the Bilingonese
Xamolxis of Thrace
Zarathustra/Zoroaster of Persia
Zoar of the Bonzes

The Mythical Jesus

Introduction
Around the world over the centuries, much has been written about religion,
its meaning, its relevance and contribution to humanity. In the West
particularly, sizable tomes have been composed speculating upon the nature
and historical background of the main character of Western religions, Jesus
Christ. Many have tried to dig into the precious few clues as to Jesus's
identity and come up with a biographical sketch that either bolsters faith
or reveals a more human side of this godman to which we can all relate.
Obviously, considering the time and energy spent on them, the subjects of
Christianity and its legendary founder are very important to the Western
mind and culture.

The Controversy
Despite all of this literature continuously being cranked out and the
significance of the issue, in the public at large there is a serious lack of
formal and broad education regarding religion and mythology, and most
individuals are highly uninformed in this area. Concerning the issue of
Christianity, for example, the majority of people are taught in most schools
and churches that Jesus Christ was an actual historical figure and that the
only controversy regarding him is that some people accept him as the Son of
God and the Messiah, while others do not. However, whereas this is the
raging debate most evident in this field today, it is not the most
important. Shocking as it may seem to the general populace, the most
enduring and profound controversy in this subject is whether or not a person
named Jesus Christ ever really existed.

Although this debate may not be evident from publications readily found in
popular bookstores1, when one examines this issue closely, one will find a
tremendous volume of literature that demonstrates, logically and
intelligently, time and again that Jesus Christ is a mythological character
along the same lines as the Greek, Roman, Egyptian, Sumerian, Phoenician,
Indian or other godmen, who are all presently accepted as myths rather than
historical figures2. Delving deeply into this large body of work, one
uncovers evidence that the Jesus character is based upon much older myths
and heroes from around the globe. One discovers that this story is not,
therefore, a historical representation of a Jewish rebel carpenter who had
physical incarnation in the Levant 2,000 years ago. In other words, it has
been demonstrated continually for centuries that this character, Jesus
Christ, was invented and did not depict a real person who was either the
"son of God" or was "evemeristically" made into a superhuman by enthusiastic
followers.

History and Positions of the Debate
This controversy has existed from the very beginning, and the writings of
the "Church Fathers" themselves reveal that they were constantly forced by
the pagan intelligentsia to defend what the non-Christians and other
Christians ("heretics") alike saw as a preposterous and fabricated yarn with
absolutely no evidence of it ever having taken place in history. As Rev.
Robert Taylor says, "And from the apostolic age downwards, in a never
interrupted succession, but never so strongly and emphatically as in the
most primitive times, was the existence of Christ as a man most strenuously
denied." Emperor Julian, who, coming after the reign of the fanatical and
murderous "good Christian" Constantine, returned rights to pagan
worshippers, stated, "If anyone should wish to know the truth with respect
to you Christians, he will find your impiety to be made up partly of the
Jewish audacity, and partly of the indifference and confusion of the
Gentiles, and that you have put together not the best, but the worst
characteristics of them both." According to these learned dissenters, the
New Testament could rightly be called, "Gospel Fictions."

A century ago, mythicist Albert Churchward said, "The canonical gospels can
be shown to be a collection of sayings from the Egyptian Mythos and
Eschatology." In Forgery in Christianity, Joseph Wheless states, "The
gospels are all priestly forgeries over a century after their pretended
dates." Those who concocted some of the hundreds of "alternative" gospels
and epistles that were being kicked about during the first several centuries
C.E. have even admitted that they had forged the documents. Forgery during
the first centuries of the Church's existence was admittedly rampant, so
common in fact that a new phrase was coined to describe it: "pious fraud."
Such prevarication is confessed to repeatedly in the Catholic Encyclopedia.
Some of the "great" church fathers, such as Eusebius, were determined by
their own peers to be unbelievable liars who regularly wrote their own
fictions of what "the Lord" said and did during "his" alleged sojourn upon
the earth.

The Proof
The assertion that Jesus Christ is a myth can be proved not only through the
works of dissenters and "pagans" who knew the truth - and who were viciously
refuted or murdered for their battle against the Christian priests and
"Church Fathers" fooling the masses with their fictions - but also through
the very statements of the Christians themselves, who continuously disclose
that they knew Jesus Christ was a myth founded upon more ancient deities
located throughout the known ancient world. In fact, Pope Leo X, privy to
the truth because of his high rank, made this curious declaration, "What
profit has not that fable of Christ brought us!" As Wheless says, "The
proofs of my indictment are marvellously easy."

The Gnostics
>From their own admissions, the early Christians were incessantly under
criticism by scholars of great repute who were impugned as "heathens" by
their Christian adversaries. This group included many Gnostics, who
strenuously objected to the carnalization of their deity, as the Christians
can be shown to have taken many of the characteristics of their god and
godman from the Gnostics, meaning "Ones who know," a loose designation
applied to members of a variety of esoteric schools and brotherhoods. The
refutations of the Christians against the Gnostics reveal that the Christian
godman was an insult to the Gnostics, who held that their god could never
take human form.

Biblical Sources
It is very telling that the earliest Christian documents, the Epistles
attributed to "Paul," never discuss a historical background of Jesus but
deal exclusively with a spiritual being who was known to all gnostic sects
for hundreds to thousands of years. The few "historical" references to an
actual life of Jesus cited in the Epistles are demonstrably interpolations
and forgeries, as are, according to Wheless, the Epistles themselves, as
they were not written by "Paul." As Edouard Dujardin ably points out, the
Pauline literature "does not refer to Pilate, or the Romans, or Caiaphas, or
the Sanhedrin, or Herod, or Judas, or the holy women, or any person in the
gospel account of the Passion, and that it also never makes any allusion to
them; lastly, that it mentions absolutely none of the events of the Passion,
either directly or by way of allusion." Dujardin additionally relates that
other early "Christian" writings such as Revelation do not mention any
historical details or drama. Mangasarian notes that Paul also never quotes
from Jesus's purported sermons and speeches, parables and prayers, nor does
he mention Jesus's supernatural birth or any of his alleged wonders and
miracles, all which one would presume would be very important to his
followers, had such exploits and sayings been known prior to "Paul."

Turning to the gospels themselves, which were composed sometime around the
middle of the 2nd century, their pretended authors, the apostles, give
sparse histories and genealogies of Jesus that contradict each other and
themselves in numerous places. The birthdate of Jesus is depicted as having
taken place at different times. His birth and childhood are not mentioned in
"Mark," and although he is claimed in "Matthew" and "Luke" to have been
"born of a virgin," his lineage is traced to the House of David through
Joseph, such that he may "fulfill prophecy." He is said in the first three
(Synoptic) gospels to have taught for one year before he died, while in
"John" the number is three years. "Matthew" relates that Jesus delivered
"The Sermon on the Mount" before "the multitudes," while "Luke" says it was
a private talk given only to the disciples. The accounts of his Passion and
Resurrection differ utterly from each other, and no one states how old he
was when he died. Wheless says, "The so-called 'canonical' books of the New
Testament, as of the Old, are a mess of contradictions and confusions of
text, to the present estimate of 150,000 and more 'variant readings,' as is
well known and admitted." In addition, of the dozens of gospels, ones that
were once considered canonical or genuine were later rejected as
"apocryphal" or spurious, and vice versa. So much for the "infallible Word
of God" and "infallible" Church! The confusion exists because the Christian
plagiarists over the centuries were attempting to amalgamate and fuse
practically every myth, fairytale, legend, doctrine or bit of wisdom they
could pilfer from the innumerable different mystery religions and
philosophies that existed at the time. In doing so, they forged,
interpolated, mutilated, changed, and rewrote these texts for centuries.

Non-Biblical Sources
Basically, there are no non-biblical references to a historical Jesus by any
known historian of the time during and after Jesus's purported advent.
Walker says, "No literate person of his own time mentioned him in any known
writing." Eminent Hellenistic Jewish historian and philosopher Philo (20
B.C.E.-50 C.E.), alive at the purported time of Jesus, makes no mention of
him. Nor do any of the some 40 other historians who wrote during the first
one to two centuries of the Common Era. "Enough of the writings of [these]
authors . . . remain to form a library. Yet in this mass of Jewish and Pagan
literature, aside from two forged passages in the works of a Jewish author,
and two disputed passages in the works of Roman writers, there is to be
found no mention of Jesus Christ." Their silence is deafening testimony
against the historicizers.

In the entire works of the Jewish historian Josephus, which constitute many
volumes, there are only two paragraphs that purport to refer to Jesus.
Although much has been made of these "references," they have been dismissed
by all scholars and even by Christian apologists as forgeries, as have been
those referring to John the Baptist and James, "brother" of Jesus. Bishop
Warburton labeled the Josephus interpolation regarding Jesus as "a rank
forgery, and a very stupid one, too." Wheless notes that, "The first mention
ever made of this passage, and its text, are in the Church History of that
'very dishonest writer,' Bishop Eusebius, in the fourth century. . . CE
[Catholic Encyclopedia] admits . . . the above cited passage was not known
to Origen and the earlier patristic writers." Wheless, a lawyer, and Taylor,
a minister, agree that it was Eusebius himself who forged the passage.

Regarding the letter to Trajan supposedly written by Pliny the Younger,
which is one of the pitifully few "references" to Jesus or Christianity held
up by Christians as evidence of the existence of Jesus, there is but one
word that is applicable - "Christian" - and that has been demonstrated to be
spurious, as is also suspected of the entire letter. Concerning the passage
in the works of the historian Tacitus, who did not live during the purported
time of Jesus but was born two decades after his purported death, this is
also considered by competent scholars as an interpolation and forgery.
Christian defenders also like to hold up the passage in Suetonius that
refers to someone named "Chrestus" or "Chresto" as reference to their
Savior; however, while some have speculated that there was a Roman man of
that name at that time, the name "Chrestus" or "Chrestos," meaning "useful,"
was frequently held by freed slaves. Others opine that this passage is also
an interpolation.

Of these "references," Dujardin says, "But even if they are authentic, and
were derived from earlier sources, they would not carry us back earlier than
the period in which the gospel legend took form, and so could attest only
the legend of Jesus, and not his historicity." In any case, these scarce and
brief "references" to a man who supposedly shook up the world can hardly be
held up as proof of his existence, and it is absurd that the purported
historicity of the entire Christian religion is founded upon them.31 As it
is said, "Extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof"; yet, no proof
of any kind for the historicity of Jesus has ever existed or is forthcoming.

The Characters
It is evident that there was no single historical person upon whom the
Christian religion was founded, and that "Jesus Christ" is a compilation of
legends, heroes, gods and godmen. There is not adequate room here to go into
detail about each god or godman that contributed to the formation of the
Jewish Jesus character; suffice it to say that there is plenty of
documentation to show that this issue is not a question of "faith" or
"belief." The truth is that during the era this character supposedly lived
there was an extensive library at Alexandria and an incredibly nimble
brotherhood network that stretched from Europe to China, and this
information network had access to numerous manuscripts that told the same
narrative portrayed in the New Testament with different place names and
ethnicity for the characters. In actuality, the legend of Jesus nearly
identically parallels the story of Krishna, for example, even in detail, as
was presented by noted mythologist and scholar Gerald Massey over 100 years
ago, as well as by Rev. Robert Taylor 160 years ago, among others. The
Krishna tale as told in the Hindu Vedas has been dated to at least as far
back as 1400 B.C.E. The same can be said of the well-woven Horus mythos,
which also is practically identical, in detail, to the Jesus story, but
which predates the Christian version by thousands of years.

The Jesus story incorporated elements from the tales of other deities
recorded in this widespread area, such as many of the following world
saviors and "sons of God," most or all of whom predate the Christian myth,
and a number of whom were crucified or executed.

Adad of Assyria
Adonis, Apollo, Heracles ("Hercules") and Zeus of Greece
Alcides of Thebes
Attis of Phrygia
Baal of Phoenicia
Bali of Afghanistan
Beddru of Japan
Buddha of India
Crite of Chaldea
Deva Tat of Siam
Hesus of the Druids
Horus, Osiris, and Serapis of Egypt, whose long-haired, bearded appearance
was adopted for the Christ character34
Indra of Tibet/India
Jao of Nepal
Krishna of India
Mikado of the Sintoos
Mithra of Persia
Odin of the Scandinavians
Prometheus of Caucasus/Greece
Quetzalcoatl of Mexico
Salivahana of Bermuda
Tammuz of Syria (who was, in a typical mythmaking move, later turned into
the disciple Thomas35)
Thor of the Gauls
Universal Monarch of the Sibyls36
Wittoba of the Bilingonese
Xamolxis of Thrace
Zarathustra/Zoroaster of Persia
Zoar of the Bonzes

Here are some details on the major players.
Buddha
Although most people think of Buddha as being one person who lived around
500 B.C.E., the character commonly portrayed as Buddha can also be
demonstrated to be a compilation of godmen, legends and sayings of various
holy men both preceding and succeeding the period attributed to the Buddha.

The Buddha character has the following in common with the Christ figure:

Buddha was born of the virgin Maya, who was considered the "Queen of
Heaven."
He was of royal descent.
He crushed a serpent's head.
He performed miracles and wonders, healed the sick, fed 500 men from a
"small basket of cakes," and walked on water.38a
He abolished idolatry, was a "sower of the word," and preached "the
establishment of a kingdom of righteousness."38b
He taught chastity, temperance, tolerance, compassion, love, and the
equality of all.
He was transfigured on a mount.
Sakya Buddha was crucified in a sin-atonement, suffered for three days in
hell, and was resurrected.38c
He ascended to Nirvana or "heaven."
Buddha was considered the "Good Shepherd", the "Carpenter", the "Infinite
and Everlasting."
He was called the "Savior of the World" and the "Light of the World."

Horus of Egypt
The stories of Jesus and Horus are very similar, with Horus even
contributing the name of Jesus Christ. Horus and his once-and-future Father,
Osiris, are frequently interchangeable in the mythos ("I and my Father are
one"). The legends of Horus go back thousands of years, and he shares the
following in common with Jesus:

Horus was born of the virgin Isis-Meri on December 25th in a cave/manger,
with his birth being announced by a star in the East and attended by three
wise men.
He was a child teacher in the Temple and was baptized when he was 30 years
old.
He had 12 disciples.
He performed miracles and raised one man, El-Azar-us, from the dead.
He walked on water.
Horus was transfigured on the Mount.
He was crucified, buried in a tomb and resurrected.
He was also the "Way, the Truth, the Light, the Messiah, God's Anointed
Son, the Son of Man, the Good Shepherd, the Lamb of God, the Word" etc.
He was "the Fisher," and was associated with the Lamb, Lion and Fish
("Ichthys").
Horus's personal epithet was "Iusa," the "ever-becoming son" of "Ptah," the
"Father."
Horus was called "the KRST," or "Anointed One," long before the Christians
duplicated the story.

In fact, in the catacombs at Rome are pictures of the baby Horus being held
by the virgin mother Isis - the original "Madonna and Child" - and the
Vatican itself is built upon the papacy of Mithra, who shares many qualities
with Jesus and who existed as a deity long before the Jesus character was
formalized. The Christian hierarchy is nearly identical to the Mithraic
version it replaced. Virtually all of the elements of the Catholic ritual,
from miter to wafer to water to altar to doxology, are directly taken from
earlier pagan mystery religions.

Mithra, Sungod of Persia
The story of Mithra precedes the Christian fable by at least 600 years.
According to Wheless, the cult of Mithra was, shortly before the Christian
era, "the most popular and widely spread 'Pagan' religion of the times."
Mithra has the following in common with the Christ character:

Mithra was born of a virgin on December 25th.
He was considered a great traveling teacher and master.
He had 12 companions or disciples.
He performed miracles.
He was buried in a tomb.
After three days he rose again.
His resurrection was celebrated every year.
Mithra was called "the Good Shepherd."
He was considered "the Way, the Truth and the Light, the Redeemer, the
Savior, the Messiah."
He was identified with both the Lion and the Lamb.
His sacred day was Sunday, "the Lord's Day," hundreds of years before the
appearance of Christ.
Mithra had his principal festival on what was later to become Easter, at
which time he was resurrected.
His religion had a Eucharist or "Lord's Supper."

Krishna of India
The similarities between the Christian character and the Indian messiah are
many. Indeed, Massey finds over 100 similarities between the Hindu and
Christian saviors, and Graves, who includes the various noncanonical gospels
in his analysis, lists over 300 likenesses. It should be noted that a common
earlier English spelling of Krishna was "Christna," which reveals its
relation to '"Christ." It should also be noted that, like the Jewish godman,
many people have believed in a historical, carnalized Krishna.

Krishna was born of the Virgin Devaki ("Divine One") .
His father was a carpenter.
His birth was attended by angels, wise men and shepherds, and he was
presented with gold, frankincense and myrrh.
He was persecuted by a tyrant who ordered the slaughter of thousands of
infants.
He was of royal descent.
He was baptized in the River Ganges.
He worked miracles and wonders.
He raised the dead and healed lepers, the deaf and the blind.
Krishna used parables to teach the people about charity and love.
"He lived poor and he loved the poor."
He was transfigured in front of his disciples.
In some traditions he died on a tree or was crucified between two thieves.
He rose from the dead and ascended to heaven.
Krishna is called the "Shepherd God" and "Lord of lords," and was
considered "the Redeemer, Firstborn, Sin Bearer, Liberator, Universal Word."
He is the second person of the Trinity, and proclaimed himself the
"Resurrection" and the "way to the Father."
He was considered the "Beginning, the Middle and the End," ("Alpha and
Omega"), as well as being omniscient, omnipresent and omnipotent.
His disciples bestowed upon him the title "Jezeus," meaning "pure essence."
Krishna is to return to do battle with the "Prince of Evil," who will
desolate the earth.

Prometheus of Greece
The Greek god Prometheus has been claimed to have come from Egypt, but his
drama took place in the Caucasus mountains. Prometheus shares a number of
striking similarities with the Christ character.

Prometheus descended from heaven as God incarnate as man, to save mankind.
He was crucified, suffered and rose from the dead.
He was called the Logos or Word.

Five centuries before the Christian era, esteemed Greek poet Aeschylus wrote
Prometheus Bound, which, according to Taylor, was presented in the theater
in Athens. Taylor claims that in the play Prometheus is crucified "on a
fatal tree" and the sky goes dark:

"The darkness which closed the scene on the suffering Prometheus, was easily
exhibited on the stage, by putting out the lamps; but when the tragedy was
to become history, and the fiction to be turned into fact, the lamp of day
could not be so easily disposed of. Nor can it be denied that the miraculous
darkness which the Evangelists so solemnly declare to have attended the
crucifixion of Christ, labours under precisely the same fatality of an
absolute and total want of evidence."

Tradition holds that Prometheus was crucified on a rock, yet some sources
have opined that legend also held he was crucified on a tree and that
Christians muddled the story and/or mutilated the text, as they did with the
works of so many ancient authors. In any case, the sun hiding in darkness
parallels the Christian fable of the darkness descending when Jesus was
crucified. This remarkable occurrence is not recorded in history but is only
explainable within the Mythos and as part of a recurring play.

==========================

Given the parallels between many of these resurrection gods, I suspect a
prototype myth which is still hidden and may always be. Given the
distribution of the myth, it seems likely that it originated between
140,000BCE and 70,000BCE. And we have no evidence indicating a "hidden"
graphica that might disclose it. It is quite possible that Horus is as close
to the prototype as we will ever get. As it is, the names, the stories are
deeply buried in the human psyche and reoccur in many cultures at many
times. As none of these gods existed, and it is a fairly safe bet to say
that the prototype never existed either. Whence
my statement that the Jesus of the Christians today had no physical
prototype. Any physical Jewish "Jesus" whether he was a zealot as we surmise
here or something else entirely was expunged or written into a minor role,
and the earlier mythman replaced him, leaving nothing but faint ripples to
mark his passing.

No wonder the "Jesus" of the bible bears so little mark of the ancient,
angry primitive hill god of the Jews. He never was tainted by the anger of
the hills of Judea, but originated from a far more civilized and ethically
smoothed culture, carefully edited to appeal to the more sophisticated
tastes of the Western World. Small wonder, that the "Community of the
Righteous" hated it. Small wonder that the Christian church began
persecuting the Jews as soon as they had the power to do
so.

Seeing the unraveling of the "physical Jesus" is more than a little
fascinating. But as John Paul implied ["An historical Jesus is not a
prerequisite for Christian faith" from memory - the original is in Latin],
largely irrelevant. As I explained above, it seems to me that the "Jesus" of
the bible has no roots in Judea. And any amount of searching there is in
fact an exercise in futility. The more we think we have learnt of an
existence, the more we will discover that it was all smoke and mirrors, and
there never was a face behind the mask.

Regards Hermit.
