Freemasonry is hidden Christianity, at least my explanations of the hieroglyphics fit this perfectly, and in this way in which I explain Christianity no one need be ashamed to be a Christian

Adam Weishaupt / <cite>quoted by Michael Tsarion</cite>

Rome, as has been said before, made war on the Irish Church established all over Europe, and as she advanced with her armed forces, she took possession of the church property and compelled the people to come under her church dominion or be put to death. By forgeries and lies she has tried to make the world believe that these countries were "converted" by her missionaries

Conor MacDari / <cite>Irish Wisdom Preserved in the Bible and Pyramids (quoted by Michael Tsarion)</cite>

The Irish Church, which was the original Christian Church, was in a struggle for its very life with Rome, and it never surrendered or compromised. Hence, the war to the finish; and the false statements, no matter how cunningly invented, cannot alter this fact. Rome has the stolen goods in her possession and she has falsified to the world as to where and how she obtained possession of them

Conor MacDari / <cite>Irish Wisdom Preserved in the Bible and Pyramids (quoted by Michael Tsarion)</cite>

Christianity is child of Atonism. It's about light, but what is light? And does light have a dark side? The "Dark Side of Light" simply refers to the destruction that results from the deliberate misuse of light and knowledge.

Around the year 1075, Pope Gregory VII began instigating what came to be called the "Gregorian Reforms." By way of his reforms Gregory sought to permanently secure the sovereign power of the Church. He strictly enforced celibacy among bishops and priests, prohibited marriage for all ordained churchmen, and saw to it that the pope would hitherto be completely above the law, as was the church itself. Gregory wished to create his own new world order in that the pope was supreme ruler over all men, and over all kings. Like other popes of his kind, Gregory ensured control over the human mind by insinuating that the sexual instincts of men were not of god but the devil. The bishops knew the inwardly divided man is submissive and controllable. At the beginning of Christianity there was no such taboo against sexuality but by the time of Augustine of Hippo the body was seen as an encumbrance keeping man from pure meditations and direct contact with god. The body and its needs dragged man to worldly life and sin.

The Christian Church has left a legacy, a world view, that permeates every aspect of Western society, both secular and religious. It is a legacy that fosters sexism, racism, the intolerance of difference, and the desecration of the natural environment…Christianity has helped to create a society in which people are alienated not only from each other but also from the divine

Helen Ellerbe / <cite>The Dark Side of Christian History (quoted by Michael Tsarion)</cite>

The Emperor Constantine...went on to issue the Edict of Milan, in 313 AD, which legalized Christianity throughout the Empire. Shortly thereafter, it became the fastest spreading religion. Constantine’s conversion to Christianity is still shrouded in mystery

Arthur Kemp / <cite>March of the Titans (quoted by Michael Tsarion)</cite>

This egomaniacal cult of spiritual darkness could not tolerate posterity thinking of them as just another clan of primitives, not after living it up as lords in the greatest country on Earth, under the shadow of pyramids and beneath the starry empyrean of Nuith. They were legends in their own minds and wanted to be acknowledged as spiritual progenitors and as a specially endowed priestarchy directly marked and chosen by god himself. And so the cult of Judaism as we now know it was born. This is why we have to be uncommonly skeptical about every account and passage of Judaic and Christian history that comes to us from the time of the exodus, from the time of the founding of the Assyrian and Babylonian captivities, and from the Grecian and Roman periods. We can take it as a given that these accounts are infested with lies and that the testaments have been composed at the behest of the descendants of this perfidious Solar Cult of Akhenaton.

Michael Tsarion / <cite>The Irish Origins of Civilization, Volume 2</cite>

[...] Pauline Christianity was fashioned as a replacement for extremist Judaism, which would continue to operate in secrecy, behind the walls of Freemasonic lodges and so-called "Invisible Colleges." The trailed of the past (of the descent through time of Akhenaton and his Cult), had to be concealed and Mosaic Judaism offered imperfect cover. Moreover, the Judaic Messiahs were merely human beings. Their main field of operation was politics. Mosaic Judaism was a liability, because a close reading of the Judaic religion eventually would expose its Egyptian roots. Christ would be from a heavenly realm far above the confines of the world. He would reject the Pharisees and they would reject and condemn him. Christ would be accepted by the Gentile nations of the west and all would be well. A new church for a new age, a new doctrine to be forced on the western world by holy emperors. No more Torah or Talmud, and barely a mention of Egypt. When the Pauline "Christ" apparently rejected Old Testament laws, the way was opened for a breakaway religion with new converts and adherents. As time passed, and as men got on with their new religion, the cunning Levitical masters of the Cult of Aton breathed easy. Their trail had become all the more difficult to discern and track.

Michael Tsarion / <cite>The Irish Origins of Civilization, Volume 2</cite>

Christian anti-masons cannot understand why masons employ what appears to be Christian symbolism. They have to discover that the "Christ" referenced in masonic works is not their Jesus, but the previous "monotheist" - namely, Akhenaton of Egypt. This is the reason why the cross is used alongside the rose and/or crown, etc.

Michael Tsarion / <cite>The Irish Origins of Civilization, Volume 2</cite>

The Teachers, even of Christianity, are, in general, the most ignorant of the true meaning of that which they teach. There is no book of which so little is known as the Bible

Albert Pike / <cite>Morals and Dogma (quoted by Michael Tsarion)</cite>

Christianity is based not only on Akhenaton's particular skewed version of solar theology, but on Egyptian sun worship of every sort.

Michael Tsarion / <cite>The Irish Origins of Civilization, Volume 2</cite>

During Hadrian's time...in 135 AD, the Jewish homeland was nearly completely destroyed, with the resultant end of Israel as a nation. It was at that point that Christianity as we know it truly began to be formulated...culminating with the officialization of the religion in the fourth century by Emperor Constantine.

Acharya S / <cite>Christ in Egypt (quoted by Michael Tsarion)</cite>

Christianity is the religion founded by Paul, which replaces Jesus' Gospel with a Gospel about Jesus - a religion that should rather be called Paulinism.

Wilhelm Nestle / <cite>quoted by Michael Tsarion</cite>

The Exilarchs of the Gaonim compiled the Talmud and Torah knowing full well what ordinary Jews and Christians were never meant to know, namely, that the roots of Judaism and Christianity had been inherited from the great solar colleges and temples of the Nile, from the three-hundred year reign of the Hyksos kings, and from the Atonist Pharaoh Akhenaton and his skewed version of sun worship. Once the Gaonim set to work expunging obviously pagan elements they could lay claim to that which was not theirs to begin with. They could maintain that Yahweh had communicated the Law to their ancestors at Mount Sinai. They could downplay Egypt and form themselves into what appeared to be a distinctly unique religious sect. Paul and his Christians could do likewise and all would be well. And so we have it - Judaism and Christianity - two hands serving the same brain. The Gaonim (or at least their occult ways) would later be an active part of the Freemasonic Order. The cryptic masonic insignia "G" refers to and belongs to them.

Michael Tsarion / <cite>The Irish Origins of Civilization, Volume 2</cite>

In time, after a few decades had elapsed, and after its establishment, Christianity's Judaic origins could be acknowledged. But in its inception the emphasis was to be placed on its novelty. Conversely, the rank and file of Jewry would be coerced by their Pharisaic rabbis and teachers to ostensibly reject this Christ and his conformist teachings. And this rejection of the new religion by old world, old school Jews further served to convey the impression that there were few points of similarity between the two religions.

Michael Tsarion / <cite>The Irish Origins of Civilization, Volume 2</cite>

For these reasons we do not agree with the writers and investigators who believe the Gospels to have been written at the behest of Rome for political reasons. The intellectual elite within the Sadducees and Romans were not in the least bit perturbed by the zealots of Judea. They considered the Messianic idea of ordinary Jews totally redundant. If pacifying Jews was their desire they could have groomed a real, living savant and let him loose, professing himself to be the Messiah. They could have promoted a man to impersonate the Messiah and no one would have been the wiser. This would have made better sense than to simply create the history of one in writing and hope that people would read it and react. No! The idea was to create a new religion based on the old Atonist model to appeal to a Western audience. Whether this religion and its Christ was accepted by the Jews or not was barely a concern. They could accept Christ or they could deny him. What did it matter to Rome and the Caesars? This is why Josephus barely mentions the Messiah in his vast works and why Christianity was established in Rome and not Judea. Christianity was the brain-child of one small elite group of Atonists resident in Rome, and of their intellectual colleagues, the Sadducees. Its central hero was a hybrid of several pagan deities and heroes, and partly based on the old Jewish Messiah. But the creators of the new religion, and of Christ, knew that the real Messiah was an Egyptian concept and not a Jewish one. The real Messiah was a descendant of the House of David, and that meant them. The claims made by the Jews meant nothing and would never come to pass - as they have not.

Michael Tsarion / <cite>The Irish Origins of Civilization, Volume 2</cite>

After the death of the physical Jesus Christ the Church Fathers decided to combine the Old and New Testaments. The reasons for this have been downplayed and are very important. The joining of the two treatises was a signal that there was, after all, little difference between Mosaic (Atonist) Judaism and Pauline Christianity. And we agree that there is little essential difference. In the end, despite implied superficial differences, Judaism and Christianity are merely two words for Egyptian Atonism.

Michael Tsarion / <cite>The Irish Origins of Civilization, Volume 2</cite>

But he [Paul] knew that the Christians who felt repulsed by hardline Pharisaic Judaism were unconsciously identifying with Levitical Atonist Judaism. The fact that most Christians were unaware of how their allegiances were being manipulated, and of the deep connections between their religion and the secret Judaic tradition, has little bearing on the facts. This is the very reason why so many American evangelist pastors appear to be so pro-Israel, and why they continue spouting Zionist rhetoric about the holiness of Israel and the fact that America is the "New Israel." They do not care about ordinary Jews and their beliefs. Their Zionism is not Jewish but Egyptian. It is Atonism plain and simple.

Michael Tsarion / <cite>The Irish Origins of Civilization, Volume 2</cite>

For all his conniving and ingenuity, Paul's attempt to divide Christianity from its Judaic roots failed. The Church employed too much old world symbolism for the ploy to be one hundred percent successful.

Michael Tsarion / <cite>The Irish Origins of Civilization, Volume 2</cite>

One of the best ways of beginning to think about the nature of Christianity is to think of it in the light of Judaism. Today, we so often think of Judaism and Christianity as two distinct religions...But early Christianity never saw itself in that way. The earliest Christians saw themselves as faithful Jews simply following Jewish teachings. In fact, the first main dispute in the Christian church was whether non-Jews, the Gentiles, could ever be part of Christianity...So when we start thinking about Christianity, we have to understand its very Jewish roots...Christianity's Jewishness is very pervasive indeed.

Douglas Jones / <cite>Why? and What? - A Brief Introduction to Christianity (quoted by Michael Tsarion)</cite>

The Israelites were a powerful nobility of Egypt and not vagabonds wandering around seeking for a home. Their religion was not fringe or obscure. It was conceived in the sun temples of the Nile. It was fine that the world remained ignorant of this. The elites with intelligence knew it, and that was enough. Judaism had arisen from Atonism and another branch would develop from the same trunk. That branch was Christianity.

Michael Tsarion / <cite>The Irish Origins of Civilization, Volume 2</cite>

The British and Roman quorums for the rise of "Judaism" are also responsible for the rise of Christianity. The supposed differences between the two religions, and the schisms between them (like those between Catholicism and Protestantism), have been craftily concocted to conceal this fact. Their differences and supposed enmity are, for the most part, merely camouflage concealing their closeness and true histories. When "Judaism" ceased to fully serve the secret purposes of its creators, living it up in affluent Rome, a new religion was commissioned to better serve their temperaments and private agendas. Judaism was not to fade. It was to be renovated and transformed. As Ralph Ellis puts it in King Jesus, Pauline Christianity was in reality Judaism made simple. The Pharisaic interpretation was to be scaled back and Paul, friend of the Sadducees and Romans, would rescript the archaic traditions into something modern that served to mollify their pagan hosts while empowering the Levitical elites seeking new empires in the Western lands. Paul would be the man to tear the tapestry of Judaism into two parts. The separation of the tapestry, so to speak, allowed Paul to stich into his Christian half the Atonist threads that had faded and broken in the Judaic half. Atonism was to be the world's new religion. It had been the father of all religions and it was to rule again albeit under a cloak.

Michael Tsarion / <cite>The Irish Origins of Civilization, Volume 2</cite>

Christianity is the religion founded by Paul, which replaces Jesus' Gospel with a Gospel about Jesus - a religion that should rather be called Paulinism.

Wilhelm Nestle / <cite>quoted by Michael Tsarion</cite>

Paul, not Jesus, was the founder of Christianity as a new religion which developed away from both normal Judaism and the Nazarene variety of Judaism. In this new religion, the Torah was abrogated as having only temporary validity. The central myth of the new religion was that of an atoning death of a divine being. Belief in this sacrifice, and a mystical sharing of the death of the deity, formed the only path to salvation...Paul derived this religion from Hellenistic sources, chiefly by a fusion of concepts taken from Gnosticism and concepts taken from the mystery religions, particularly from that of Attis. The combination of these elements with features derived from Judaism, particularly the incorporation of the Jewish scriptures, re-interpreted to provide a background of sacred history for a new myth, was unique, and Paul alone was the creator of this amalgam. Jesus himself had no idea of it, and would have been amazed and shocked at the role assigned to him by Paul as a suffering deity.

Hyam Maccoby / <cite>Mythmaker: Paul and the Invention of Christianity (quoted by Michael Tsarion)</cite>

...most of what is now accepted as orthodox Christian doctrine was developed from Paul's teaching, rather than from that of Jesus. The New Testament Gospels concentrate on the story of Jesus' life - his birth, baptism, day to day travel, miracles, death, etc, - but really tell us very little of His teachings, apart from a few short sermons, parables, conversations and arguments. Paul's letters, however, are packed full of his own personal beliefs - his ideology, his philosophy, and his theology.

R. A. Anderson / <cite>Church of God, or Temple of Satan (quoted by Michael Tsarion)</cite>

There was only one major difference between Paul's Christianity and the pagan corpus, and that it involved the sanctity of the self. Apparently, the cabals in Britain, Rome, and Jerusalem, that commissioned Paul were determined to decimate the pagan philosophy that considered man as his own savior.

Michael Tsarion / <cite>The Irish Origins of Civilization, Volume 2</cite>

The origins of Judeo-Christianity are to be found in Egypt.

Michael Tsarion / <cite>The Irish Origins of Civilization, Volume 2</cite>

On the surface this Atonist denial of the underworld, of shadow, death, and mortality, can seem admirable and commendable. But total denial can lead to its own kind of pathology. And we assert that it has indeed done so. Apollonian religions, such as Judeo-Christianity, have forced the consciousness of human beings into a polarized and unhealthy state. The Atonists believed shadows disperse once bright light is thrown at them. They were wrong. The shadows merely darken. Dare we speculate then on the peculiar psychological profile of priests and worshippers of the sun who avoid noticing the existence and significance of shadows cast by the light they revere?

Michael Tsarion / <cite>The Irish Origins of Civilization, Volume 2</cite>

You (Pagans) say we [Christians] worship the sun; so do you.

Tertullian / <cite>Early Christian and Bishop of Carthage (quoted by Michael Tsarion)</cite>

If Christianity were really an offshoot of the Egyptian religion...then the implications for our whole culture are so basic and enormously far-reaching that they can only be touched on here.

Picket and Prince / <cite>Templar Revelation (quoted by Michael Tsarion)</cite>

As we have outlined in Volume One, Christianity was created in Britain and eventually transplanted to the Middle East. The story of Jesus did not originate in Galilee or Judea as the Gospels state. The men who invented the story of Jesus had their origins in Egypt of the eighteenth dynasty. They were the Atonists.

Michael Tsarion / <cite>The Irish Origins of Civilization, Volume 2</cite>

Most Christians, in the United States and elsewhere, are not theologians and tend to literalize doctrinal metaphors. This is hardly to be deplored and I suspect this was true of the earliest Christians also.

Harold Bloom / <cite>Jesus and Yahweh: The Names Divine (quoted by Michael Tsarion)</cite>

To the ordinary public - notwithstanding the immense amount of work which has of late been done on this subject - the connection between Paganism and Christianity still seems rather remote. Indeed the common notion is that Christianity was really a miraculous interposition and that the pagan gods...fled away in dismay before the sign of the Cross, and at the sound of the name of Jesus. Doubtless this was a view much encouraged by the early Church itself - if only to enhance its own authority and importance; yet...it is quite misleading and contrary to fact. The main Christian doctrines and festivals, besides a great mass of affiliated legend and ceremonial, are really quite directly derived from, and related to, preceding Nature worships; and it has only been by a good deal of deliberate mystification and falsification that this derivation has been kept out of sight.

Edward Carpenter / <cite>Pagan and Christian Creeds (quoted by Michael Tsarion)</cite>

The Christian religion depends for the sanction and validity of its beliefs upon the Bible as does the earth upon the sun for its light, heat and life...But of the whole body of Christians who accept it and believe in it, who found their faith upon it, no two sects believe it alike; all the schisms, and heresies, and persecutions, and religious wars, and religious intolerances and bigotries which past history has recorded and current history chronicles, are due alone to the differences of belief engendered by the indubitable inconsistencies and contradictions of the texts of inspired truth of this "Holy Bible, Book Divine..."

Joseph Wheless / <cite>Is it God&#039;s Word? (quoted by Michael Tsarion)</cite>

Whether Jesus lived or not, we may conclude with certainty that Christianity is of pagan origin. December the 25th is celebrated as the birthday of Jesus Christ. This date is an approximation of the Winter Solstice, and the birthday of several pagan sun-gods. Its pagan derivation is beyond all dispute.

John G. Jackson / <cite>Pagan Origins of the Jesus Myth (quoted by Michael Tsarion)</cite>

So, again, why was there not an Egyptian revival? Why was Jesus accepted and not Horus, or Osiris, or Serapis? One answer could be that the vast majority of intelligent converts already knew that Christianity was close to Egyptian religion. Unlike people today they would have understood Christianity's doctrine to be nothing more than a rescripting of solar theology from Egypt's many esoteric colleges. We do not see any other reason as to why such conversion would have taken place given that the world's wealthiest and most erudite scholars and dignitaries were reverers of Egyptian occult traditions.

Michael Tsarion / <cite>The Irish Origins of Civilization, Volume 2</cite>

A 3rd century Persian teacher, known as Manes, who said that Christianity had got things wrong and he was here to put it right, attempted to revive these old ways. Regardless of the Christian attempts to kill off Manichaeism it survived until the 13th Century. He is said to have revived Ophiolatreia (serpent worship), where he taught that Christ was an incarnation of the 'great serpent'

Philip Gardner / <cite>Secrets of the Serpent (quoted by Michael Tsarion)</cite>

...Frederick D. Kershner, who, in his book Pioneers of Christian Thought says that "the Gnostics were the founders of Christian theology in the full sense of the word"

Gerald Massey / <cite>Lectures (quoted by Michael Tsarion)</cite>

Archaeological discoveries such as the Nag Hammadi texts and the Dead Sea Scrolls have revealed much more about the time and culture in which Jesus lived - and suddenly it seems that many of the aspects of Christianity that used to be considered unique were no such thing. Even the most well-worn familiar Christian concepts can now be seen as having had a completely different meaning in the context of first-century Palestine.

Picket and Prince / <cite>Templar Revelation (quoted by Michael Tsarion)</cite>

The greatest of Jewish scholars, those who have thoroughly analyzed the ancient Jewish scriptures and who have expert knowledge concerning the origins of Christianity, understand Christianity to be akin to the mystery religions of the ancient pagan world and to the Gnostic traditions that orthodox Judaism ostensibly frowns upon. It was these pagan mystery traditions that advocated sun-gods, dying saviors, and divine salvation, and not Judaism. These facts have been guilefully obscured by latter-day elites within the Roman Catholic (and Protestant) churches who have a great deal to lose should the pagan roots of their "heavenly" Jesus be revealed.

Michael Tsarion / <cite>The Irish Origins of Civilization, Volume 2</cite>

The Church abandoned the idea of the birthday of Jesus coinciding with the day of the heliacal rising of Sirius in 7 BC for a symbolic rebirth of the sun in winter. The July birthday would have shown all too clearly the connection between Christianity and the original Osiris religion of Egypt. For this was the start of the Sothic year and for millennia the basis of the Egyptian Calendar.

Adrian G. Gilbert / <cite>Magi: The Search for a Secret Tradition (quoted by Michael Tsarion)</cite>

Whether Jesus lived or not, we may conclude with certainty that Christianity is of pagan origin. December the 25th is celebrated as the birthday of Jesus Christ. This date is an approximation of the Winter Solstice, and the birthday of several pagan sun-gods. Its pagan derivation is beyond all dispute.

John G. Jackson / <cite>Pagan Origins of the Christ Myth (quoted by Michael Tsarion)</cite>

As late as the fifth and sixth centuries, the words "Our Lord, the Sun" were used by the Christians in their prayers. This same phrase was also used in the liturgy until altered later into "Our Lord, the God"

Bozena Brydlova / <cite>Io Unveiled (quoted by Michael Tsarion)</cite>

The term "Christian" appears only three times in the New Testament's convoluted scriptures. It appears twice in Acts and once in I Peter, although the entries in Acts may not be original. They may have been added by editors at a later date. Worse than this, the word "Christian" can not be found in Christian literature composed in the first one hundred years after the supposed crucifixion of Jesus. The term is found only in literature of pagan authorship. On almost every occasion the term is used to describe degenerate sects who have disturbed society by violent and illegal acts. The first pagan author to mention the term was Suetonius. After him it appeared in a letter of an Adrian around the year 117 AD. Spelled "Chrestian" it again turned up in the work of Justin Martyr between 147 and 161 AD. As we can see these brief entries do not provide enough information to verify that the term signified the followers of the biblical Jesus.

Michael Tsarion / <cite>The Irish Origins of Civilization, Volume 2</cite>

It was on June 21 - the day of the summer solstice - that a total of 2,048 presbyters, deacons, sub-deacons, acolytes, and exorcists gathered at Nicea to decide what Christianity really was, what it would be, and what writings were to be used and who was to be its god. The tyrant Constantine commissioned this council and he imperiously presided over it throughout its duration.

Michael Tsarion / <cite>The Irish Origins of Civilization, Volume 2</cite>

Towards the end of his life…St. Augustine confessed that Christianity was ‘a religion of threatsand bribes unworthy of wise men’.

Tony Bushby / <cite>The Bible Fraud (quoted by Michael Tsarion)</cite>

Only minds completely crazed or fatally confused by the current Christomania would suppose that the details of the story, which is as old at least as the Cult of Ptah in Memphis, were derived from the "historic" version that was canonized at last as Christian...The repetition of this as Christian legend in the Gospels is no mere replica of "heathen" sentiments, images, types and phrases. It is a reproduction of the Egyptian astronomical mythology and eschatology in the disguise of pretended history.

Gerald Massey / <cite>Ancient Egypt - Light of the World (quoted by Michael Tsarion)</cite>

Ammonius Saccas (a Greek philosopher, founder of the Neoplatonic School) taught that Christianity and Paganism, when rightly understood, differ in no essential points, but had a common origin, and are really one and the same religion.

Sarah Elizabeth Titcomb / <cite>Aryan Sun Myths (quoted by Michael Tsarion)</cite>

There was always an exoteric portion given out to the world, to the uninitiated, and an esoteric portion reserved for the initiates, and revealed only in degrees, accordingly as the candidate demonstrated his fitness to receive, conceal and rightly use the knowledge so imparted. Few professed Christians are aware, perhaps, that such was the case with Christianity during the early centuries.

Lawrence Buck / <cite>Mystic Masonry (quoted by Michael Tsarion)</cite>

No one will become generous and worthy from Christianity for it does not promote wisdom and learning and the Pagan writings that promote fortitude, prudence, and justice are ascribed to Satan and those who worship Satan.

Flavius Claudius Julianus / <cite>Roman Emperor Julian (quoted by Michael Tsarion)</cite>

The extent of Christian stupidity and of Christian ignorance would have been the most unaccountable of all the phenomena of the universe, if its own history had not supplied the account. Men have been trained to prefer ignorance to learning, and have chosen to be driven mad and wild by faith, rather than to be instructed, enlightened and improved by reason and philosophy.

Robert Taylor / <cite>Devil&#039;s Pulpit (quoted by Michael Tsarion)</cite>

The Christian church is an encyclopedia of prehistoric cults.

Fredrick Nietzsche / <cite>quoted by Michael Tsarion</cite>

The religions of Christianity and Judaism originate from the same source, and that source is Egypt. Egyptian culture and religion had its source also, and that source is Ireland. Ireland's Druidic and proto-Druidic traditions, likewise, had their source in the pre-diluvian civilizations of Atlantis and Lemuria. These facts will come as something of a shock to the majority of those readers who have received their education from conventional sources and who have tended to blithely accept on faith all that pours forth from the mouths and pens of the so-called "historians"and "experts" who believe themselves informed about the world of the past.

Michael Tsarion / <cite>The Irish Origins of Civilization, Volume 2</cite>

Hypatia not only proved conclusively the pagan origin of the Christian faith but also exposed the purported miracles then advanced by the Christians as tokens of divine preference by demonstrating the natural laws controlling the phenomena.

Manly P. Hall / <cite>The Secret Teachings of all Ages</cite>

The prevalent idea that the reverence for the cross is limited to the Christian world is disproved by even the most superficial investigation of its place in religious symbolism. The early Christians used every means possible to conceal the pagan origin of their symbols, doctrines, and rituals. They either destroyed the sacred books of other peoples among whom they settled, or made them inaccessible to students of comparative philosophy, apparently believing that in this way they could stamp out all record of the pre-Christian origin of their doctrines. In some cases the writings of various ancient authors were tampered with, passages of a compromising nature being removed or foreign material interpolated. The supposedly spurious passage in Josephus concerning Jesus is an example adduced to illustrate this proclivity.

Manly P. Hall / <cite>The Secret Teachings of all Ages</cite>

This Apocryphal work, calculated to inspire its readers with fear and trembling, was popular during the Middle Ages because it was in full accord with the cruel and persecuting spirit of mediæval Christianity. Like many other early sacred books, the book of Thomas was fabricated for two closely allied purposes: first, to outshine the pagans in miracle working; second, to inspire all unbelievers with the "fear of the Lord." Apocryphal writings of this sort have no possible basis in fact. At one time an asset, the "miracles" of Christianity have become its greatest liability.

Manly P. Hall / <cite>The Secret Teachings of all Ages</cite>

Although early Christianity shows every evidence of Oriental influence, this is a subject the modern church declines to discuss.

Manly P. Hall / <cite>The Secret Teachings of all Ages</cite>

The prudery of today, however, declares this same mystery to be unfit for the consideration of holy-minded people. Contrary to the dictates of reason, a standard has been established which affirms that innocence bred of ignorance is more to be desired than virtue born of knowledge. Eventually, however, man will learn that he need never be ashamed of truth. Until he does learn this, he is false to his God, to his world, and to himself. In this respect, Christianity has woefully failed in its mission. While declaring man's body to be the living temple of the living God, in the same breath it asserts the substances and functions of this temple to be unclean and their study defiling to the sensitive sentiments of the righteous. By this unwholesome attitude, man's body--the house of God--is degraded and defamed. Yet the cross itself is the oldest of phallic emblems, and the lozenge-shaped windows of cathedrals are proof that yonic symbols have survived the destruction of the pagan Mysteries. The very structure of the church itself is permeated with phallicism. Remove from the Christian Church all emblems of Priapic origin and nothing is left, for even the earth upon which it stands was, because of its fertility, the first yonic symbol. As the presence of these emblems of the generative processes is either unknown or unheeded by the majority, the irony of the situation is not generally appreciated. Only those conversant with the secret language of antiquity are capable of understanding the divine significance of these emblems.

Manly P. Hall / <cite>The Secret Teachings of all Ages</cite>

The obscene rites practiced by the later Bacchanalia and Dionysia were no more representative of the standards of purity originally upheld by the Mysteries than the orgies occasionally occurring among the adherents of Christianity till the eighteenth century were representative of primitive Christianity. Sir William Hamilton, British Minister at the Court of Naples, declares that in 1780, Isernia, a community of Christians in Italy, worshiped with phallic ceremonies the pagan god Priapus under the name of St. Cosmo. (See Two Essays on the Worship of Priapus, by Richard Payne Knight.)

Manly P. Hall / <cite>The Secret Teachings of all Ages</cite>

The average Christian is never meant to find out that, before it was warped and distorted, everything he reads about between the pages of his Bible, as well as every element of his religion, originally came from Egyptian Amenism and Irish Druidism.

Michael Tsarion / <cite>The Irish Origins of Civilization, Volume 1</cite>

The average Christian is not supposed to know that Jesus' home town of Nazareth did not actually exist, or that the key places mentioned in the Bible did not physically exist in the so-called "Holy Land." He is not meant to know that scholars have had greater success matching Biblical events and places with events and places in Britain rather than in Palestine.

Michael Tsarion / <cite>The Irish Origins of Civilization, Volume 1</cite>

We know further from several sources that the Christians were originally called Galileans, and it is said that Julian the Emperor (306-363 AD) desired to have them so called again, and in his own writings he invariably refers to then under this designation...Justin Martyr, moreover, knows of a pre-Christian sect called Galileans...Epictetus, who died about 117 AD, calls the Christians Galileans; Mani, in the third century, calls the general Christians Galileans

G. R. S. Mead / <cite>Did Jesus Live 100 BC? (quoted by Michael Tsarion)</cite>

The average Christian, however, is not meant to know that the earliest word for a believer in Jesus was Galilean, a word that derives from Gael or Gaelic. He is not supposed to know that St. Paul, and maybe even the man Jesus himself (given that he existed), was an agent of the elite Culdeans, Sadducees, and Romans.

Michael Tsarion / <cite>The Irish Origins of Civilization, Volume 1</cite>

The fact must not be overlooked, when speaking of the supplanting of Druidism by Christianity, that the Druids held many tenets inculcated in Christianity and the practices and customs of the Christians. The doctrine of the immortality of the soul, the belief in miracles, the doctrine of reincarnation, all, in those days, articles of the Christian faith, had already been imparted to the Britons by their own priests

Dudley Wright / <cite>Druidism: The Ancient Faith of Britain (quoted by Michael Tsarion)</cite>

When Christianity was introduced, pagan sacred sites were often converted into Christian sacred sites.

The truth concerning the birth of Christianity, which has been guarded by the Vatican and the various secret societies, is that it was a religion devised by British nobles, those descended from the Gaels and Scythians, who sought dominion over valuable mining territories in Britain, France, Europe, and the East. After its invention, Christianity was transplanted to the Middle East. The reason for this has partly to do with the similarity of Christianity's main protagonist, Jesus, and the ancient god Iesa. One of the most important families behind the creation of a new religion was the Scots-Irish Clan of Menzies. Along with the St. Clairs, Stuarts, and other oligarchs with long bloodlines, they coveted the mineral rich territories upon which their stately homes, estates, and parishes now stand.

The keepers of the secret tradition, the preservers of the occult history of Christianity, know full well that their religion did not originate among those the world knows as "Jews." They know who the real "Jews" were. They know that both Judaism and Christianity were the brainchildren of Egyptian Atonists ensconced in Britain.

Michael Tsarion / <cite>The Irish Origins of Civilization, Volume 1</cite>

It is interesting to note that the Bethany group who landed in Britain, was never referred to by the British priesthood as Christians, nor even later when the name was in common usage. They were called "Culdees," as were the other disciples who later followed the Josephian mission to Britain.

George F. Jowett / <cite>The Drama of the Lost Disciples (quoted by Michael Tsarion)</cite>

The Atonists realized that their materialistic objectives could be achieved if they manufactured a religion that appeared to be a follow on from ancient Druidism. [...] In the early days, this religion was actually known as Culdeanism, or as Jessaeanism. Early Christians were known as Culdeans, Therapeuts, or suggestively as Galileans. Although they would be found spread throughout Europe and the Middle East, their origin was Britain.

Michael Tsarion / <cite>The Irish Origins of Civilization, Volume 1</cite>

The chieftains of this sun cult did not conceive of Christianity for its own sake or because they were intent on saving the world. They wanted to conquer the world, not save it.

Michael Tsarion / <cite>The Irish Origins of Civilization, Volume 1</cite>

Once we understand that Atonist Britain was the first and true incubator of Christianity, a lot of historical mysteries are solved. When we understand how the story of Jesus was transplanted to the East from the West, we will have total insight into all that has transpired throughout the ages since Christianity took birth.

Michael Tsarion / <cite>The Irish Origins of Civilization, Volume 1</cite>

The Scots Chronicles also record that Egyptian philosopher priests were apparently teaching the Christian doctrine of a universal deity in ancient Caledonia (c. 180 BC), i.e., almost two centuries before the Apostolic mission in the British Isles

Barry Dunford / <cite>The Holy Land of Scotland (quoted by Michael Tsarion)</cite>

The strange and controversial fact is that Judeo-Christianity began in Britain before the alleged date of the Crucifixion. It was the brainchild of the Atonists of Britain.

Michael Tsarion / <cite>The Irish Origins of Civilization, Volume 1</cite>

Christianity and Atonism are both rooted in Druidism or, more correctly, in a corruption of prehistoric Druidism.

Michael Tsarion / <cite>The Irish Origins of Civilization, Volume 1</cite>

In the original symbolism of the Christian Church, colors were of first importance and their use was regulated according to carefully prepared rules. Since the Middle Ages, however, the carelessness with which colors have been employed has resulted in the loss of their deeper emblematic meanings. In its primary aspect, white or silver signified life, purity, innocence, joy, and light; red, the suffering and death of Christ and His saints, and also divine love, blood, and warfare or suffering; blue, the heavenly sphere and the states of godliness and contemplation; yellow or gold, glory, fruitfulness, and goodness; green, fecundity, youthfulness, and prosperity; violet, humility, deep affection, and sorrow; black, death, destruction, and humiliation. In early church art the colors of robes and ornaments also revealed whether a saint had been martyred, as well as the character of the work that he had done to deserve canonization.

Manly P. Hall / <cite>The Secret Teachings of all Ages</cite>

[...] Christianity was not a new revelation. It was a continuation of Paganism by another name. The gospel story of Jesus is not the biography of an historical Messiah. It is a Jewish reworking of ancient Pagan myths of the dying and resurrecting Godman Osiris-Dionysus, which had been popular for centuries throughout the ancient Mediterranean

Timothy Freke and Pater Gandy / <cite>The Original Jesus (quoted by Michael Tsarion)</cite>

Once we understand the hermetic devises used by the biblical mythographers to encode zodiacal symbolism we will finally find sanity in the testaments. We will see the metaphors for what they are and acknowledge the Druidical and astrological origins of Christianity.

Michael Tsarion / <cite>The Irish Origins of Civilization, Volume 1</cite>

Christianity is patently a solar centric theology and whether its modern-day adherents know or accept this or not is unimportant.

Michael Tsarion / <cite>The Irish Origins of Civilization, Volume 1</cite>

Indeed, the prowess of Christian magic was always overstated. The miracle-working prophets and saviors of Christianity had, after all, a lot to compete with. In our estimation, there is little doubt that the astonishing accounts of Christian miracle healings and banishings - from the wizardry of Moses in the wilderness to the raising of the dead talent of Jesus to the feats of St. Patrick and St. Columba - were deliberately concocted and added to the Christian canon in order to outdo the legacy of the Druids. The alleged healing powers of the waters at Lourdes is, for instance, about as pagan a motif as anyone might conceive. In the end we must be aware that the Druidism of post-Christian times, as well as the Druidism presented to us in official accounts, is not the same thing as actual Druidism. It is mere propaganda and distortion.

Michael Tsarion / <cite>The Irish Origins of Civilization, Volume 1</cite>

Conventional histories presented a picture of early Christians as peaceable souls, unjustly persecuted. This picture could only have arisen because historical writing was monopolized by the church for many centuries, and there was no compunction about changing or falsifying records.

Barbara G. Walker / <cite>The Woman&#039;s Encyclopedia of Myths and Secrets</cite>

It has been estimated that Europe was Christianized at a cost of about 8 million to 10 million lives.

Barbara G. Walker / <cite>The Woman&#039;s Encyclopedia of Myths and Secrets</cite>

One of the erroneous notions that still keep Christian women shackled to their Bible-based "inferior" image is the notion that Christianity was founded on the New Testament, when in fact the early churches had no Gospels but rather created and produced their own. Not only did churchmen falsely pretend an apostolic origin for their scriptures; they also weeded out all references to female authority or participation in Christian origins. Only the forbidden Gnostic Gospels retained hints that Jesus had 12 female disciples corresponding to the 12 male disciples, or that Mary Magdalene was the leader of them all. Even women's scholarship was denied.

Barbara G. Walker / <cite>The Woman&#039;s Encyclopedia of Myths and Secrets</cite>

The antique unadulterated form of "Christianity" (Druidism) that existed in Ireland from the earliest times was a remnant of pre-diluvian theology. It was based on the observance and veneration of the stars, of the sun, the moon, and the zodiac. It was, from its inception a stellar religion. The bible, therefore, is not only based on Druidic philosophy, it is a sidereal testament disguised as a biography and history of physical personages who, for the most part, had no historical existence. How this antique Druidic philosophy was flagrantly appropriated and abused is a fascinating story that must be told. We are personally interested in the reasons why it was thought best to denude the ancient theology of its connection to the stars and why it was then foisted upon the world in its present contorted and preposterous form. To this day, the ancient mystery school subjects of Astrology and Kabala, etc, are still taught to the elites within the Christian and Judaic colleges, to those of the highest caliber and lineage. This secret is not known by the lower rank and file and great steps have been taken to downplay the Astro-Theological aspect of the major religions. Although innumerable books are now in circulation, attempting to shine light into Christianity's darker corners, the sidereal and sabean connections have rarely been exposed. This kind of revelation is, perhaps, too controversial even to most revisionists, especially to those of the "soft" variety. Obviously, should this gnosis reach the ears of the masses not much will be left of the vile edifice of Vatican-style religion.

Michael Tsarion / <cite>The Irish Origins of Civilization, Volume 1</cite>

Our revisionist work is made somewhat more challenging because most Christians know very little about the true origins of their religion and do not realize that most of what they read and hear about from priests and potentates is pure fiction with little to no basis in fact. They are not aware of how the Roman Church has fostered and unleashed upon their unsuspecting minds a battery of lies and fables in order to disguise the actual origins of religion. Nevertheless, we seek to show in the course of this work that Christianity, and its so-called parent Judaism, have their roots in Egypt and Ireland. And this holds true for the language and cultural idioms. This fact was commonly known the world over before the rise of the present imposter Roman hegemony. It was known in ancient times that Christianity, in its purest and most antique form, was nothing more nor less than Druidism from Ireland.

Michael Tsarion / <cite>The Irish Origins of Civilization, Volume 1</cite>

Judeo-Christianity, as we know it, is a creation of the Solar Cults of the ancient world. As an institution it is a construct of the Atonists, the renegade outcasts of Egypt’s eighteenth dynasty. After the termination of their dominion, the commanders of this powerful cult, seeking new empires, guided their people back to the place of beginning and subsequently set about erasing the archaic and sophisticated culture they found there. They overlaid their own corrupted traditions upon the more antique one that was soon forgotten.

Michael Tsarion / <cite>The Irish Origins of Civilization, Volume 1</cite>

The vile Judeo-Christian institution and its inhuman ideology would not have been able to endure if the pristine marvel of Irish Druidism remained strong and bright in the world of men.

Regarding the origin of the Church, Christianity moved to Rome by way of Byzantium and Britain and its roots are to be found in ancient Ireland. It certainly did not originate in Rome.

Michael Tsarion / <cite>The Irish Origins of Civilization, Volume 1</cite>

The Christian Fundamentalist movement was to be a channel for strengthening the state of Israel by identifying with the Israel of the Bible and acceptance of the theory of "God's Chosen People," and by donating very substantial amounts of money to Israel, in what they sincerely believed to be a religious cause in the furtherance of Christianity. This view overlooks the fact that modern Israel was founded as a Zionist political state and not a religious state.

Dr. John Coleman / <cite>The Committee of 300</cite>

Although the Ante-Nicene Fathers were aware of the inner mysteries of the Christian faith, a rising orthodoxy was content to disseminate the most literal possible explanations of the Christian mysteries. This is largely responsible for modern sectarianism.

Manly P Hall / <cite>The Bible, the Story of a Book</cite>

According to the Guinness Book of World Records, 1983, between the years 1815 and 1975, some 2,500 million Bibles were printed either completely or in parts in 1,735 languages. These figures do not include sixteenth, seventeenth, and eighteenth century printings of which there were large and numerous editions. It may reasonably be assumed, therefore, that nearly every literate, living person has had some direct contact with the sacred writings of Christianity.

Manly P Hall / <cite>The Bible, the Story of a Book</cite>

As we have seen Christians were experiencing a withdrawal of the spirit worlds. The Church seemed unable to provide direct spiritual experience or personal contact with spiritual realities. The people demanded wonders and only the secret societies knew how to provide them.

Mark Booth / <cite>The Secret History of the World</cite>

Well versed in the wisdom of Plotinus and Iamblichus she [Hypatia] explained in her lectures how Christianity had evolved out of the teachings of the Mystery schools, and she argued, like her father, that no single tradition or doctrine could have exclusive claim to the truth.

Mark Booth / <cite>The Secret History of the World</cite>

[...] whether or not anything miraculous happened in that obscure corner of the Near East in the early years of the first century, its effect on the history of the world is unparalleled in its breadth and depth. It gave rise tot he civilization we now enjoy, a civilization of unprecedented freedom, prosperity for all, richness of culture, scientific advance. [...] Of course some of these ideas were foreshadowed by Krishna, Isaiah, the Buddha, Pythagoras, Lao-Tzu, but what was unique to Christianity, the 'mustard seed' planted by Jesus Christ, was the idea of the interior life.

Mark Booth / <cite>The Secret History of the World</cite>

Christianity's most sacred texts are deeply occult:
The meek shall inherit the earth
Faith moves mountains
Ask and it shall be given.

Mark Booth / <cite>The Secret History of the World</cite>

[...] the new Christian perspective was focused on the inner life. If we compare earlier moral codes, such as the law of Moses or the even older Code of Hammurabi, with the Sermon on the Mount, it is clear that they were only rules to regulate behaviour in the Outworld - do not worship idols, steal, murder, commit adultery etc. The moral teaching in the Gospels, on the other hand, is directed towards inner states. 'Blessed are the poor in spirit ... they that mourn ... the meek ... the pure in hear ...'

Mark Booth / <cite>The Secret History of the World</cite>

The power of the early Church lay in its influence over the masses. It was not the faith of the noble during the first centuries, but the faith of the shopkeeper, and even the slave. Its power increased through the sheer weight of numbers, rather than through special favor by any group. Its early dogmas were uncertain; there was much groping. But after the Council of Nice, a certain integration was obvious; and this was the true foundation of the Church.

Christians have tortured more Christians and pagans for their beliefs than ever suffered martyrdom under the Caesars.

He [Julian] resented, furthermore, that a class of people within the boundaries of the empire - for the most part the poorest educated and of least estate - should fanatically expound a belief that they were the sole possessors of truth; that all other gods were demons; all other philosophers, frauds; and all other institutions, heretical. It is possible that the Emperor's annoyance was well founded. If the attitude of converts two thousand years ago resembled the attitude of certain modern Christian fanatics, one gains a greater degree of sympathy for the plight of Romans having a faith thrust upon them without the right to say nay.

Manly P Hall / <cite>How to Understand Your Bible</cite>

Impersonal consideration would indicate that very few of the first Christian martyrs were actually killed for their beliefs. Most of them were arrested for sedition and executed for crimes against the solidarity of the state.

Many of the first converts to the Christian faith were men of Greek learning. Therefore, in the interpretation of Christian metaphysics, it will be useful to consider the substance of Platonic teaching concerning the nature of the LOGOS. It will then be obvious that the Christian teaching is but a thinly veiled re-statement of the Greek original.

To Peter, the Christian "mystery" was that of God made flesh. To Paul, it was flesh made God.

Out of the struggles of these men after truth, out of their prayers and meditations, out of debate and controversy, out of feud and schism emerged Christian theology - the product of fallible men, dreaming after the infallible, seeking with finite minds to probe the mysteries of the infinite.

Manly P Hall / <cite>How to Understand Your Bible</cite>

For two thousand years the New Testament has been taken on faith, and upon the personal convictions of individuals not in a position to prove what they believe. No one will deny the sincerity and devotion of those hundreds of millions who have accepted Christianity. Nor is it of great spiritual significance whether their belief is based upon fact or fable, if they have lived well and have been induced into courses of tolerance, honesty, gentleness, and wisdom. All other factors are of secondary importance.

Where history impinges upon the moral life, however, has been in the matter of tolerance. It is the tolerance aspect which makes facts necessary. I think most will agree that the Christian church has not had a distinguished record for tolerance.

Intolerance is based upon a small certainty about things unknown. Yet intolerance can be the destroyer of religions and nations; hence the necessity for the statement of doubt, and moderation of theological enthusiasm.

Manly P Hall / <cite>How to Understand Your Bible</cite>

All sincere Bible students must be mindful of the words of Synesius, Bishop of Alexandria: "Therefore, as a bishop of the church, I will continue to disseminate the fables of the church, but in my private capacity I shall remain a philosopher to the end."

Most people would naturally assume that Christianity allows the existence of only one Devil - the Devil - in other words that Satan and Lucifer are the same entity.

In fact we need only a quick, fresh look at the texts to see that the authors of the Bible intended something quite different. Again, this is something biblical scholars accept, but which hasn't filtered down to congregations.

Mark Booth / <cite>The Secret History of the World</cite>

Modern churchmen are often quick to condemn astrology, but none can deny, for example, that the great Christian festivals are all astronomically derived - Easter being the first Sunday following the full moon that falls on or follows the vernal equinox, or that Christmas is the first day after the winter solstice when the rising sun begins to move visibly back in the reverse direction along the horizon.

Mark Booth / <cite>The Secret History of the World</cite>

But Christianity has roots in older religions of the region in which it arose and all of these were naturally polytheistic and astronomical. The beliefs of early Christians reflected this. For them spirituality meant commerce with actual spirits.

Mark Booth / <cite>The Secret History of the World</cite>

No purer and simpler doctrine, no greater knowledge of the communion possible between God and man had ever been given. Yet, within a very short time after the death of Christ, Christian ritualism began to appear. A theological system of dogmas and beliefs was devised, modes of worship elaborated and a hierarchy arose with all its attendant evils. However, the Christian faith, under the lash of persecution, had shown the world the power of Faith and Charity.

And against this power the forces of evil have ever been unfurled. Blow after blow was dealt to the rising church. Both its beliefs and practices were attacked by those who professed other views and worshipped other gods and who designed all schemes to subvert and pervert Christianity. Henceforth, as it has ever been with all religions, the history of Christianity and of Gnosticism will develop side by side, the perversion and destruction of the former being the aims of the latter.

Lady Queensborough / <cite>Occult Theocrasy</cite>

There were fifteen major theological religious movements before Christianity that taught the same identical story. Of a messiah who came to the earth, who was born in a manger, who died on a cross, who had twelve apostles, who died with a crown of thorns. Were you aware that there were fifteen major religions that had the same identical teachings of Christianity? Most people aren't. And I'm very suspect of a sixteenth religion which is copied off of fifteen previous religions, and I am told that this one is the truth. I become very suspect.

When we came out of the Dark Ages into the Age of Enlightenment, the leaders of The Enlightenment were eventually put to death by the church. And the church always put to death anyone who would go against church or government. I believe the two greatest enemies of all free people in the world are government and religion, both. They are both equal partners in tyranny and have sold us out. The government fleeces us, the church fleeces us. That's why Christians are called sheep. Because with sheep, you fleece them. And then you eat them. And sheep, of course, are the dumbest animals in the world, and any farmer will tell you that. It's true. Anyone who knows anything about animals and animal husbandly will tell you that the most incredibly stupidest animal the world has ever known is a sheep. They cannot find their way out of a paper bag, and they will follow anybody.

Christianity is a Freemasonic concept. Many Freemasonic concepts originated in Egypt. Freemasonry did not officially exist yet during early Christianity in the way we know it today, but Christianity is based on Freemasonic concepts and ideas established partly by Egyptians and partly by the old Essenes that lived in Middle East. That is why, incidentally, that we had so many problems getting the Dead Sea Scrolls out, because, in my opinion, there is material in the Dead Sea Scrolls that can cause some very serious problems with Christianity and Judaism. Much of the Scrolls have been released, but few people are studying what they really say. And contrary to what you might think, not all of the Dead Sea Scrolls have been released. As of this writing, one book, The Angel Scroll, remains under lock and key in monastery Germany. What remains hidden could be damaging to those belief systems, and there may be a vested interest in keeping it locked away.

Jordan Maxwell / <cite>Matrix of Power</cite>

Christianity has always labeled these ancient religions as being pagan, which gives a negative connotation. The word pagan actually means someone who lives in the country, a mountain dweller, or someone who lives outside of a city. That name was given to someone who lived up in the mountains, because in Rome, after Christianity was adopted, the religion was thought to be sophisticated. There was little sophistication to be found outside of the cities. Once Caesar became a Christian then everybody could be a Christian, so therefore, it became the State religion. So it was in high style to be a Christian. Consequently, you were considered very intelligent if you became a Christian at that time, you were very in, you were modern if you were a Christian in Rome. Once it was accepted fully, and then it became the thing to be. Of course, the people out in the hills, the farmers, the poor people out in the country, on the outside of Rome that have lived the same way for ten thousand years, well, those were pagans. They didn't understand a new "take" on things. So it became a disparaging remark about poor people of the soil, people who were farmers, people who didn't know all of this high-fangled, new religious thing that Rome had come up with as a new belief system. The cross with the circle of the sun is a very common symbol, in both ancient and modern times. They were just people, and the working class people were called pagans. That is where the word came from in ancient times. Anybody who wasn't with the "in" crowd in Rome, with the new religion, was considered a pagan.

Jordan Maxwell / <cite>Matrix of Power</cite>

...a man hanging on a cross was never pictured in the first four hundred years of Christianity. They never had a symbol, or an emblem, or a picture anywhere in Christianity of a man hanging on a cross. It was always pictured as a lamb or a sheep carrying a cross. It was not until the sixth century at one of the great ecumenical councils that it was decided that we should have a man hanging on the cross. That's where the concept of a man hanging on a cross was begun.

Jordan Maxwell / <cite>Matrix of Power</cite>

Christianity, like Judaism and Islam, was designed to achieve another vital part of the reptilian Agenda: the suppression of the female energy, the intuitive connection to higher levels of our multidimensional consciousness. Once you suppress your feminine energy, your intuition, you switch off your higher consciousness and become dominated by your lower consciousness.

David Icke / <cite>The Biggest Secret</cite>

If any religion has truly corrupted the original concept of Jehovah and the pantheon, then that religion is materialist Christianity. This is not the honest first century Nazarene faith of Jesus, James and the Celtic Church, but the State religion contrived by Roman imperialists in the fourth century, from which there are now many competitive offshoots.

Laurence Gardner / <cite>Genesis of the Grail Kings</cite>

The Christian church blindly follows ancient customs, and when asked for a reason gives superficial and unsatisfactory explanations, either forgetting or ignoring the indisputable fact that each religion is based upon the secret doctrines of its predecessor.

Manly P Hall / <cite>The Secret Teachings of all Ages</cite>

Many early priests and prophets, both pagan and Christian, were versed in astronomy and astrology; their writings are best understood when read in the light of these ancient sciences. With the growth of man's knowledge of the constitution and periodicity of the heavenly bodies, astronomical principles and terminology were introduced into his religious systems. The tutelary gods were given planetary thrones, the celestial bodies being named after the deities assigned to them. The fixed stars were divided into constellations, and through these constellations wandered the sun and its planets, the latter with their accompanying satellites.

Manly P Hall / <cite>The Secret Teachings of all Ages</cite>

This Egyptian deity [Isis] under many names appears as the principle of natural fecundity among nearly all the religions of the ancient world. She was known as the goddess with ten thousand appellations and was metamorphosed by Christianity into the Virgin Mary, for Isis, although she gave birth to all living things--chief among them the Sun--still remained a virgin, according to the legendary accounts.

Manly P Hall / <cite>The Secret Teachings of all Ages</cite>

From a consideration of all these ancient and secret rituals it becomes evident that the mystery of the dying god was universal among the illumined and venerated colleges of the sacred teaching. This mystery has been perpetuated in Christianity in the crucifixion and death of the God-man-Jesus the Christ. The secret import of this world tragedy and the Universal Martyr must be rediscovered if Christianity is to reach the heights attained by the pagans in the days of their philosophic supremacy. The myth of the dying god is the key to both universal and individual redemption and regeneration, and those who do not comprehend the true nature of this supreme allegory are not privileged to consider themselves either wise or truly religious.

Manly P Hall / <cite>The Secret Teachings of all Ages</cite>

The fraternal and democratic spirit of the first communities, and their humble origin; the identification of the object of adoration with light and the sun; the legends of the shepherds with their gifts and adoration, the flood, and the ark; the representation in art of the fiery chariot, the drawing of water from the rock; the use of bell and candle, holy water and the communion; the sanctification of Sunday and of the 25th of December; the insistence on moral conduct, the emphasis placed on abstinence and self-control; the doctrine of heaven and hell, of primitive revelation, of the mediation of the Logos emanating from the divine, the atoning sacrifice, the constant warfare between good and evil and the final triumph of the former, the immortality of the soul, the last judgment, the resurrection of the flesh and the fiery destruction of the universe--[these] are some of the resemblances which, whether real or only apparent, enabled Mithraism to prolong its resistance to Christianity.

Encyclopedia Britannica

That I do not, however, accuse the Christians more bitterly than truth compels, may be conjectured from hence, that the cryers who call men to other mysteries proclaim as follows: 'Let him approach whose hands are pure, and whose words are wise.' And again, others proclaim: 'Let him approach who is pure from all wickedness, whose soul is not conscious of any evil, and who leads a just and upright life.' And these things are proclaimed by those who promise a purification from error. Let us now hear who those are that are called to the Christian mysteries: Whoever is a sinner, whoever is unwise, whoever is a fool, and whoever, in short, is miserable, him the kingdom of God will receive. Do you not, therefore, call a sinner, an unjust man, a thief, a housebreaker, a wizard, one who is sacrilegious, and a robber of sepulchres? What other persons would the cryer nominate, who should call robbers together?

Celsus

The early Church, patterned after pagan Mysteries, sought for a little time to perpetuate the arcana, but such a procedure would doom the Church to a humble and obscure existence, ministering only to a devout and dedicated few. The bishops of the Church were mortal men instinctively desiring power and authority, and they sacrificed the spiritual doctrines of Christianity to temporal ambitions. The majority of mankind neither desires to improve itself nor to support an organization which demands a high degree of integrity. The outer body of the Church increased to the degree that the standards of Christian living were lowered, until at last, promising everything and demanding only temporal support, the Church gained temporal power at the expense of spiritual authority. It is for this reason particularly that the Christian thinker must never confuse the Jesus of Nazareth with the Christ of the modern church. Nor must the Christian thinker permit the clergy to interpret for him spiritual matters of which the clergy itself is ignorant.

Manly P Hall / <cite>Twelve World Teachers</cite>

The Christian religion is a parody on the worship of the Sun, in which they put a man whom they call Christ, in the place of the Sun, and pay him the same adoration which was originally paid to the Sun.

Thomas Paine

It was the honest conviction of the Patristic Fathers that the deeper mysteries of Christian dispensation were beyond the understanding of the laity. In order, therefore, not to 'cast pearls before swine,' they devised a cycle of fables which have come to be accepted as literal historical facts. From various causes the same general condition has arisen in most religions. Spiritual matters can not be understood by those not spiritually enlightened. Again, enlightenment can not be bestowed; it must be evolved. To be serviceable, a religion must be comprehensible to the mass of its followers. The result is inevitably a compromise with truth. In serving the uninformed many, theology leaves the enlightened few without adequate spiritual food.

M: The Bodies Cellular Memory

Has anyone read about or heard about cellular memory? I find it to be fasinating any thoughts on it?

In a nut shell, it's a theory about cell in our body having hold memories of things we do, done, seen, tasted, enjoyed, hated, etc..

So this is supposed to be why some of us have faint memories of a so called past life, this could possibly explaine why, and that some of these memories are from our genetic gene pool, memories from some person with whom you share their genes that are runing through your body from (distant family members.)

Also in the case were some pople who get transplants have memories of the other persons life and crave the foods they loved without even knowing them, but later finding out this information.

I think this is super interesting and explaines a lot, here is additional informationa nd case studies..

Here's an link to an interesting article and study, then tell me what you think!

Cellular Memory in Organ Transplants

Leslie A. Takeuchi, BA, PTA

In my experience as a physical therapist assistant, I have come to acknowledge the relevance of thoughts, emotions and spiritual beliefs to healing. I recognize the art of physical therapy to be based upon empirical science and a dualism which views the mind and body as separate, thus drawing a sharp distinction between sensory experiences and physical reality, between subject and object, between mind and matter and between soul and body. However, I also recognize that even though my science provides a rational foundation, it does not allow for the importance of the subjectivity and wholeness I see in my patients whose bodies and minds are inseparable.

In my work with the chronic pain population, I have taken a closer look at this relationship of mind and matter, body and emotions, for keys to how people heal. In this search, I looked into theories of emotions or memories being somehow stored in the tissues of the body and later manifesting in the physical form of pain or disease. What was most striking were the numerous reports of organ transplant recipients who later experienced changes in personality traits, tastes for food, music, activities and even sexual preference. Is it possible that our memories reside deep inside our bodily cells in addition to in our minds?

Current understandings about memory, for example, place this mental capacity solely as a function of the brain. However, the process of memory may be too complex to be explained by measuring brain activity through electroencephalograms or oxygen uptake as recorded on PET scans. Looking at memory as part of the quantum world of sub-atomic systems gives the visual image of tiny specks whizzing around every which way until there is a need for them to come together into some sort of pattern of awareness. But, where do the memories reside?

Candace Pert, author of Molecules of Emotion: Why You Feel the Way You Feel, says, "Memories are stored not only in the brain, but in a psychosomatic network extending into the body . . . all the way out along pathways to internal organs and the very surface of our skin." After having discovered neuropeptides in all body tissues, Pert suggests that through cellular receptors, thoughts or memories may remain unconscious or can become conscious-raising the possibility of physiological connections between memories, organs and the mind.

University of Arizona scientists and co-authors of The Living Energy Universe, Gary Schwartz, PhD, and Linda Russek, PhD, propose the universal living memory hypothesis in which they believe that "all systems stored energy dynamically . . . and this information continued as a living, evolving system after the physical structure had deconstructed." Schwartz and Russek believe this may explain how the information and energy from the donor's tissue can be present, consciously or unconsciously, in the recipient.

Paul Pearsall, MD, a psychoneuroimmunologist and author of The Heart's Code, has researched the transference of memories through organ transplantation. After interviewing nearly 150 heart and other organ transplant recipients, Pearsall proposes the idea that cells of living tissue have the capacity to remember.

Together with Schwartz and Russek, Pearsall conducted a study, published in the Spring 2002 issue of the Journal of Near-Death Studies, entitled, "Changes in Heart Transplant Recipients That Parallel the Personalities of Their Donors." The study consisted of open-ended interviews with 10 heart or heart-lung transplant recipients, their families or friends and the donor's families or friends. The researchers reported striking parallels in each of the cases. The following is a sampling of some these.

Case study 1

In one case, an 18-year-old boy who wrote poetry, played music and composed songs, was killed in an automobile accident. A year after he died his parents came across an audiotape of a song he had written, entitled, "Danny, My Heart is Yours," which was about how he "felt he was destined to die and give his heart to someone." The donor recipient "Danny" of his heart, was an 18-year-old girl, named Danielle. When she met the donor's parents, they played some of his music and she, despite never having heard the song, was able to complete the phrases.

Case study 2

In another case, a seven-month-old boy received a heart from a 16-month-old boy who had drowned. The donor had a mild form of cerebral palsy mostly on the left side. The recipient, who did not display such symptoms prior to the transplant, developed the same stiffness and shaking on the left side.

Case study 3

A 47-year-old Caucasian male received a heart from a 17-year-old African-American male. The recipient was surprised by his new-found love of classical music. What he discovered later was that the donor, who loved classical music and played the violin, had died in a drive-by shooting, clutching his violin case to his chest.

Case study 4

A 29-year-old lesbian and a fast food junkie received a heart from a 19-year-old woman vegetarian who was "man crazy." The recipient reported after her operation that meat made her sick and she was no longer attracted to women. If fact, she became engaged to marry a man.

Case study 5

A 47-year-old man received a heart from a 14-year-old girl gymnast who had problems with eating disorders. After the transplant, the recipient and his family reported his tendency to be nauseated after eating, a childlike exuberance and a little girl's giggle.

Case study 6

Aside from those included in the study, there are other transplant recipients whose stories are worth mentioning, such as Claire Sylvia, a woman who received a heart-lung transplant. In her book entitled, A Change of Heart: A Memoir, Ms. Sylvia describes her own journey from being a healthy, active dancer to becoming ill and eventually needing a heart transplant. After the operation, she reported peculiar changes like cravings for beer and chicken nuggets, neither of which she had a taste for prior to the transplant. She later discovered that these were favorites of her donor. She even learned that her donor had chicken nuggets in his jacket pocket when he died in a motorcycle accident.

Case study 7

Another possible incidence of memory transfer occurred when a young man came out of his transplant surgery and said to his mother, "everything is copasetic." His mother said that he had never used that word before, but now used it all the time. It was later discovered that the word had been a signal, used by the donor and his wife, particularly after an argument, so that when they made up they knew everything was okay. The donor's wife reported that they had had an argument just before the donor's fatal accident and had never made up.

Case study 8 (Amazing!)

Another amazing story, reported by Pearsall, is that of an eight-year-old girl who received the heart of a ten-year-old girl who had been murdered. After the transplant, the recipient had horrifying nightmares of a man murdering her donor. The dreams were so traumatic that psychiatric help was sought. The girl's images were so specific that the psychiatrist and the mother notified the police. According to the psychiatrist, ". . .using the description from the little girl, they found the murderer. He was easily convicted with the evidence the patient provided. The time, weapon, place, clothes he wore, what the little girl he killed had said to him . . . everything the little heart transplant recipient had reported was completely accurate."

Although medical science is not yet ready to embrace the ideas of cellular memory, one surgeon believes there must be something to it. Mehmet Oz, MD, heart surgeon at Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center, has invited an energy healer, Julie Motz, into the operating room during transplant surgery. Initially, Motz practiced energy healing to help reduce anxiety prior to surgery and depression following surgery. Then the team noticed that there seemed to be less incidence of rejection in these patients. They were curious to see what would happen if she were present during the operation. Motz registers, through sensations in her own body, the emotional state of the patient during the surgical procedure. Through her touch or words, Motz attempts to alleviate any worries, fears or anger the patient may be experiencing. She works with the recipient's ability to accept the new organ and also works with the donated tissue so it will accept a new body. The results have been favorable, and the team reports reduced rejection and increased survival rates. This may sound outrageous to those who never thought about tissues having feelings or caring about where they would reside, but Dr. Oz believes that it would be a disservice to ignore even the possibility that this method could help.

More studies are being conducted with regard to the phenomenon of organ recipient and donor coincidences. Pearsall, Schwartz and Russek report that, "research is underway at the University of Arizona on a sample of more than 300 transplant patients to determine the incidence of such transcendent memory phenomena using semi-structured interviews and systematic questions."

Intriguing questions remain. What percentage of transplant recipients actually do feel changes in behavior and personality or report changes in food preference or have new memories? Is there a higher incidence of tissue or organ acceptance in those patients who are aware of their consciousness or who have energy work done? Will ordinary science offer more evidence to support that memories are transferred-or will we need a new science? Perhaps more importantly, what does this transcendent phenomenon have to tell us about other healing events?

Leslie A. Takeuchi, BA, PTA is a physical therapist assistant and is currently a graduate student in Holistic Health Education at John. F. Kennedy University in Orinda, California. An article about Julie Motz's energy healing work appeared in the June/July issue of San Francisco Medicine in 2000. Her book, "Hand of Life" was published by Bantam Books in 1998.

An Imaginary Church

Despite the contradictory practices in denominationalism, we are told that it does not matter what church we attend, so just "join the church of our choice."

Let us make up a church and see if it "does not matter" if we attend this church.
Suppose we had a church that taught all the following things:

* We follow the Bible as our sole guide in religion, but we also follow the Book of Mormon, the Catholic catechism, and Jehovah's Witness Watchtower publications as authority.

* We believe that a child of God can so sin as to be eternally lost, but we also believe that it is impossible for a child of God to so sin as to be eternally lost.

* We believe that immersion is the only true form of baptism, but we also practice sprinkling and pouring as valid forms of baptism.

* We believe that man is justified by faith alone, but we also teach that obedience is essential to justification.

* We believe that the seventh day of the week is the Christian sabbath and the first day of the week is a perversion, but we also believe that the first day of the week is the Christian sabbath for worshipping God.

* We worship the God of the Bible as our only God and Jesus as our only Savior, but we also worship the sun, moon, stars, and Satan.

What would you think of a church that believed and practiced all these contradictory doctrines? "Ridiculous! Hypocritical!"

Yes, but when different churches teach these contradictory doctrines, some people tell us it "does not matter" which we join. Isn't that also ridiculous and hypocritical?

Consider what denominationalism says about Jesus. We are told that "you can find Jesus in any of the churches." And "there are people in all the denominations that are following Jesus."

But if Jesus is found in all the churches, though they teach all these contradic-
tory doctrines, doesn't that make Him a hypocrite?

And if all the churches are following Jesus, yet they are going in opposite directions, doesn't that mean Jesus is leading people in opposite directions?

When people try to justify denominations, they make Jesus ridiculous and hypocritical!

What is the real problem with our imaginary church?

The problem is that no one could believe all these contradictory doctrines because truth does not contradict itself!

This is the real issue. Jesus teaches truth, and truth does not contradict itself. My note - (Depends on your definition of Truth)!

Denominations contradict one another. Therefore, they cannot all be teaching truth, and they cannot all be following Jesus! (And to the fella who wrote all this, are you keeping track of who is following Jesus?)
