To: Acharya

My book Jehovah Unmasked is now available on LuLu.com  Have a look!

Soon it will also be available on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Borders, and perhaps some other such sites.  This experience has been really great, and finally at age 52 I discover I want to be a writer.  My next project, barring unforeseen occurrences, will be a book about my experiences as  a Jehovah's Witness.
Enjoy!

Hello again,
I am continuing to read Gerald Massy's "Egypt the Light of the World".  Very interesting, that the Eygptians had knowledge of the precession of the Equinoxes.  Sitchin would say that that knowledge was originally given to Mankind by the Annunaki and the Summerians recorded the fact and the knowledge would have been passed down through the ages by the select who knew the mysteries, and thus came to the Egyptians.  But Massey thought the Egptians gave the knowledge to the Babalonians.  I continue to ponder.  Much of what Sitchin believes seems to be confirmed by modern science, such as the rise of Homo sapiens in Africa approximately 300,000 years ago from a single source female, traced through mitroconda DNA.  Most scientist marvel at the rapid rise of Homo Sapiens against a normal evolutionary time frame that should be much greater, thus increasing the suspicion  that intervention was at hand.  I thoroughly enjoyed watching your video interview.  I share many of your views about religion and the hope that Maniknd can rise to a hgiher level of understanding and stop killing each other over versions of myths that seem to drive us to bad ends.  To wit, I include a little prayer that I wrong a while back to express my hope for a good and productive life.  I will continue to read and to learn.

Subject: I'm fifteen and have a developing, young fresh mind

I read some of what you wrote on your page.

Interesting to read, but, as a servant of my Lord, some of your views of a Christian are odd to me...maybe you just haven't had a "good experience" with christians?

What i believe is the Bible (yes, this one book- all it took). Why? because it's here. It has survived for thousands of years. If God doesn't exist and the Bible is just a bunch of rules for a bunch of ignorant people who just want something (even if false) to comfort  them, then why did it last? Surely something created by human hands could not have survived for so long with people (such as yourself) devoting their lives to proving it wrong all the time. You'd have to agree...it's so plain to you as to why this cannot come from anything divine in nature. It should just fall apart...Right? Something full of prophecies that have to be wrong and facts that can't coexist with written history has no chance of being held as credible and real by millions for years and years....right? hmmmm

Wrong. You say you are a free thinker, but in truth...you are just as (or more) mentally caged up as you say theists are. Remember, i'm not trying to sound in a mean or negative tone.

I live by the Bible, and try to model myself as Christ. Because my God  wants us to choose him and love him, he gave the ability to love Him and to reject him. That makes perfect sense...the truth is that no one is perfect. Only Jesus Christ was perfect. No matter how hard i try, i will never be worthy of going to Heaven. No chance. That's why Jesus came. He- God in man form, had to come down to live a lowly life...die and be raised again. All for me and you. Pretty amazing. No no, extremely beyond my ability to think amazing. So, i ask that you not base your opinion of a Christian on how you see them act- because of course, although they may be trying hard, may sometimes be negative or even hurtful- they're human. I ask that you base your opinion of how a Christian should be on Christ and his apostles.

Well, that's pretty much all i have to say. I just have one question: If there is no God, how did was the world and life created. I want your plain and simple answer. No roundabouts, no theories, i want your plain and simple answer.

Thank you for your time and I love you,

AM, **** County High School

Consolation from imaginary things is not imaginary consolation.

Hi Acharya,
 
I really enjoy your work, please keep up the efforts.  Being a pragmatist I always support a good stirring of the pot.
 
However, the origins of and/or historical-proof of  the actual existences regarding the many Theo-personalities of humanity has never worried me.  I just pay attention to the cool things that they supposedly had to say-- i.e., as long as the advice is relevant and helpful, Ayn Rand, Chinnamasta and Wonderwoman are all the same person to me.
As far as the sun goes, I did spend a lot of time in the "physical" company of Suryatenshamash himself, but I never got a quality, personal response.  I did have a melanoma removed from my left shoulder though.
 
Love and Best wishes,

Greetings,

 I am hopeful of receiving a response from the most prolific and knowledgeable Achayra S.

Recently I have been researching Apollinarius of Tyanna, allegedly a " Bishop Marcian" discovered some of his writings in Asia Minor which in reality actually dealt with Krishna , Marcian then composed elements of early Christian Gospel from it.

Are you familiar with the story ?

If so, can you point me in the right direction on this topic - Who Marcian was, and related data ?

Yes, I know the story of Apollonius of Tyana fairly well and mention it in both my published books, "The Christ Conspiracy" and "Suns of God."  It appears to be that Apollonius's tale served as a basis for both the life of Paul and a bit of Jesus's, although the latter is more founded upon the gods of yore.

The story is that Apollonius traveled to the East, to "Singapur," although that appears to mean India, where he procured some books and letters (bases of the "Pauline Epistles") and brought them to Antioch.  Apollonius's travels are almost identical to those of Paul, although in the opposite direction.  Basically, Apollonius/Paul went to the strongholds
of brotherhoods in these various areas.  Christian/Gnostic Bishop Marcion found these writings in Antioch, reworked them, took them to Rome, where he was in line to become the head of the church there, and published them in Greek and Roman.  Marcion's book became the first New
Testament.

A good source regarding Marcion and his work is "History of the Christian Religion to the Year 200" by Charles Waite.  A search on the net will yield many other results.

Date: Tue, 4 Oct 2005 03:00:51 -0300

...Well, I still haven't read your book...but I am impressed by the reviews.  I know one day I will read it... I don't mean to be rude or disrespectful in anyway but, eh... you are so beautiful!  And I was impressed to learn you speak many languages, including mine, Portuguese!!!

Ok, I've been researching a lot of material lately, including Mr. David Icke's radio interviews on radio, etc.  Not very long ago, I read some very interesting things about the story of Jesus being the personification of the sun.  And the it's not only the date of birth: the 12 disciples represent the 12 months which, if you make a cicle (the word church comes from circle and it is written or pronounced kirk in Scottish) and divide it into four, you'll have the four seasons and, to top it off, the cross simbol. The center of the cross is where the sun would be.  Supposedly, the guy was born from a virgem, but apparently, that was the constellation where the sun was. They say he started his ministry or was baptized when he was thirty and, again, the constellation was  Pisces...and so, Jesus the fisher!  Enough??? Yeah, I would give up even if I were I Christian (which I was, by the way until I lost my faith completely)!  But hey that's not all; some guy died at 33 and the sun sets at a 33-degree angle. The 25th of December, Sunday, etc... well, eh... it's a long story, and I know you must know about these things.

Well, I would like to send you my appreciation for being courageous enough to expose the fraud organized religion has perpretrated on mankind for so long.  If ever think about translating your book to Brazilian Portuguese, you might want to consider getting in touch with me (Hey, that sounds like embedded command. So, please, never mind, or rather, mind, or....Just kidding!).  I would be really happy to be part of the job.

Subject: Mystery Religion Superiority?
To: "Acharya S"

You seem to be convinced that the "Pagan" mystery religions were very superior to all other world religions. But weren't they the dominant forces in the Roman Empire? Weren't most of the Roman Emperors under there influence? Yet neither they nor Christianity ever seemed to think of abolishing slavery or any other progressive social measures.

That would be an erroneous characterization of my work.  I do not believe that so-called Paganism, with its abundant human sacrifice, was superior to anything.  I critique all ideologies.

I am glad to see that I was mistaken! Your criticisms fall so heavily on Christianity that I guess it just seemed as if you thought "Gnosticism" was far superior. I believe that any type of ideology can be used by a ruling class to brainwash its people, and since all world religions tend to get established by those with money (because they are literate and have places to assemble congregations) probably all of them have been developed along lines approved of by the various ruling classes (by and large). "Priest-craft" is an essential part of any ruling establishment.
 
I believe that today, we have many secular priesthoods. They use "social science," art and even history as ideologies to brainwash us. That's why I think the 1st Amendment should be extended to prevent any kind of ideology being supported by the government in any way, especially in the public schools! At the very least, people should be exempted from having to let their children be brainwashed in any course in which the subject matter can be treated "subjectively" by the teacher. That includes more and more of what is being taught in the schools these days. The curriculum is becoming top heavy with real and potential brainwashing courses.

To: Acharya S

i stumbled across your website while reading up on a few things that i find interesting and perplexing. i was really intrigued by your article on teh Christ Conspiracy and your research and views on astrotheology. i am really interested in the idea of the Annunaki actually being alien life forms that created humans as a slave race and so forth. I first heard of this concept while reading on the Illuminati and the Moriah and the shadow government. I was just interested in your perspective of the Illuminati and Secret Societies steering teh course of history. do you believe this to be possible? what are your thoughts on such a topic about the creation of teh human race? How do you feel that the first humans were created and what is the direction that the race is going? i agree with your views on religious falseness and this lead me to wonder what your views on the Illuminati were. i am sure you have heard of such a concept and would ahve some interesting points to let my mind ponder. i dont really expect a return email but any insight would be much apprecieted and i hope to hear from you soon

You know since 1999 when I read your first book as a new EX Christian with of course no direction (at that time) I became one of your largest admirers and fans. Please if you ever come down here to Florida's (east) space coast/Merritt Island for whatever??? I would enjoy meeting you, shaking your hand and saying "thank you" !!!!

Greetings and salutations!

My name is Brad McHargue and I am a student at the Florida State University majoring in Classics and Religion. I am currently taking a Greek Tragedy in Translation class, and our paper for the term is to write, well, pretty much anything related to one of the tragedies we have read. Lately I have gained a huge interest in mythological influence in Christianity, and with the support of my professor, I have decided to write a paper on the similarities
between Jesus Christ and Dionysus in The Bacchae while commenting on the opinions various scholars and theologians througout history have had on the supposed influence mythology has had on Christianity.  Would you possibly be able to recommend any sources I could use, as well as give me some pointers on how to approach the subject?
