I have had an interesting career (see below) and presently find myself
researching the field of ancient history with a view to present a
revisionist history of the 4th century of our "common era".
My position can be most appropriately summarised by quoting the
opening lines from the three books which Emperor Julian authored
c.361 CE "Against the Christians".
It is, I think, expedient to set forth to all mankind
the reasons by which I was convinced that
the fabrication of the Christians
is a fiction of men composed by wickedness.
Though it has in it nothing divine,
by making full use of that part of the soul
which loves fable and is childish and foolish,
it has induced men to believe
that the monstrous tale is truth.
and am happy to attempt the answer of any questions
any skeptical people may ask here, or elsewhere, on this
My message that Jesus did not exist but was a 4th century
literary invention may at first sound impossible and counter-
intuitive, however if people are interested and willing to ask
critical and skeptical questions about the reasons why I
believe that the historical truth is best explained in this manner,
then I will be happy to do my best to answer these questions.
Finally, I wish to state that I feel that I am acting and researching
this material out of a desire to establish the ancient historical truth
of "christian origins" -- what really happened in the 4th century?
Best wishes to one and all.
Read the book "Awaken the world within" by Hilton Hotema.
For what purpose?
"Hilton Hotema authored numerous books on dietetics, fasting, fruitarianism, breatharianism, vitality, cellular regeneration, longevity, higher consciousness, spirituality, alternative medicine and ancient wisdom"
My woo-woo meter has broken again, it went off the scale for a minute, and now it doesn't seem to go back to it's normal position, I wonder why....
I have no proof but I believe the story of Jesus to be fiction, a Greek tragedy.
Well.. what can on say after viewing a CV LIKE THAT...shall we pray ha ha ha
Not many do anymore as there is no evidence he ever lived outside the Bible but I digress the OP is doing a good job.
Jesus of Nazareth was a Jewish hot dog seller made good.
You may be right. There is some evidence to suggest it. But as much as I believe that the text has been intentionally created to tell a story that makes its hero out to be a liar and deceiver, I believe that someone enlightened was walking around in that time frame. He was clearly not Jewish and he obviously didn't believe in the God of the Jews. Perhaps that's why Paul hated Jesus' teachings so much that he established an entire church to defame him while worshiping him. His message is so anti-human-authority and anti-money that it is no wonder that Constantine wanted him erased from public memory.
> He was clearly not Jewish and he obviously didn't believe in the God of the Jews.
Since that is precisely what most secular scholars have concluded based on decades of research into the area, why is it so "clear" to you that the opposite is true?
