Subject: Jesus, evolution, the pyramids and more...

One of the things that really bugs me is that if you ask most Christians, they will vehemently deny that Christ or Christianity has ANYTHING to do with sun-worshiping or solar cycles, even though Christmas and Easter fall on or about a solar solstice or winter equinox.

It DOES matter whether or not some dude was walking around the middle east 2000 years ago. Christianity and all the other major religions have caused much suffering for human kind and will continue to do so until the myths are exposed. No real person! No dead guy on a stick! No hell below us, above us only sky. Next. Where do you start? In Acharya's case, at the very beginning of civilization. Cave paintings even. Decades of research from all over the world applying top-notch skills in linguistics, history, archeology, mythology, etc to this vast puzzle with no "hidden" agenda. This is very dry stuff! (that's why I like it).

Like evolution, this makes the most sense. 7 days, a garden, a rib, an apple and a snake! You've got to be shittin me. Oh, I heard somewhere that a (not so insignificant) portion of adults that believe in evolution think that the plants and animals evolved but humans were created??? How much sense does that make?

A couple of years ago I happened to see a program on PBS on the origins of religion, I don't recall the narrator but in the end the program concluded that the origin of organized religion stems from the Egyptian worship of the hawk. How accurate this is I can't say, but the program certainly gave me something to think about.

Since then I have read Acharya's excerpts and am waiting for the arrival of THE BOOK. I have personally gone through a few experiences "defending" my views which most certainly pales in comparison to Acharya's defending and reproving her life's work. She could easily become the new "most hated person in America" for exposing the christian religion for what it has been and still is: A cult to control others and accumulate wealth and power while doing so.

... Christianity IS myth and plagiarized myth to boot. I studied the bible years ago, and I stopped studying it because now it is simply a waste of my time. One can read Alice in Wonderland so many times before it too becomes a waste of one's time. Even as a teenager I could tell the facts from fiction or truth from lies concerning the so called holy texts. Common sense and simple logic was poorly countered by emotionalism and utter nonsense.

Unfortunately in today's dumbed down and brainwashed America, emotionalism rules. The elite, conspiriators, controlling class, powers to be or what ever label you wish to attach to our present day rulers will use the public's emotional panic button to try and discredit Acharya's work. Every knee-jerking evangelistic nitwit will soon flood her e-mail, probably infiltrate this list, and will soon be camping on her front stoop chanting stupid things like heretic, witch, satanic something or other, keeping within the good christian tradition of persecuting those that dare to counter their maligned beliefs. The real reason this will happen is that this is the first time in history that someone with the experience, expertise, and courage could and did expose christianity for what it is and how it became so. Only with today's high tech publishing and the relatively free internet access was this possible. Most likely any attempts by past authors, scholars or others were squashed by publishing editors, if anything that was written even got that far.

Regardless, the seeds of truth have been sown with the publication of CHRIST CONSPIRACY, and those seeds will sprout into trees of knowledge and enlightenment. Only then will the human race start progressing as it should. With any luck, the human race will start advancing for the benefit of itself, not some faceless, formless, nonexistent BORG-god aka religious leaders....

I was born and raised in a religious cult. I escaped physically at age 18. Ever since, I've been slowly undoing the damage thru study, experience, introspection etc etc. (I'm now 51.) Many of my relatives and childhood friends are still deeply mired in the superstitious claptrap. An impenetrable barrier forever between us. They feel sorry for me, and I feel sorry for them. What a waste of fine human beans. One of the helpful things I've discovered is Acharya and her work. Where else are you finding the clarity of vision and depth of research and TRUTH you find in her writings? ... Show me who is putting out more important truth in 1999, and I'll just move right over to that web site, book, show, whatever.... There are plenty of sites for people who want to keep their brownie points intact with good ole jesus. So go there and debate if he lived, loved, worked, wanked, whatever. For myself, I'm totally fuckin' tired of folks making excuses for religion and so called religious figures. Religion has done and continues to do incalcuble harm to human beings and our planet. Now here we have the opportunity to support and learn from a woman leader who is driving a wedge of light into the mass of religious superstition. Help her drive it deeper and wider or just stay out of the way.

To: Acharya S

I doubt that I'm the only one to notice this: I happen to think that the "Holy Bible" is the original handbook on genocide.

I cannot condone what the Nazis did, but maybe we shouldn't be too harsh on them. After all, the Nazi propaganda against the Jews sounds just like the Israelite propaganda against the Midianites (Numbers 31): "WE are the Chosen Ones while they are not; we must destroy them so their impurities will not infect the Chosen Ones; but keep the young girls who haven't yet had sex for yourselves so that we may breed the impurities out of them."

Why is everyone in a tissy about "ethnic cleansing" in places like Bosnia and Kosovo? The xians and muslims are just following the examples given in the bible, etc.

Just a little rant....

... Science does not deal with proof (with the exception of mathematics, which isn't really a science, in the sense that there are hypotheses and experiments).

What science does deal with is falsification of hypotheses. Falsification is disproof. It's asymmertrical: you can't "prove" a general hypothesis is true. You can however prove that a generalized statement is false simply by discovering a single counterexample.

We know specifically that the Biblical (and apocryphal) myths about "Jesus" are syncretic - that is, that the story has accumulated. Actually, Acharya seems to have demonstrated that all of the central elements not devoted simply to local verisimilitude are derived from other sources, and that the skeleton-plot of the story is based on astrotheology, and ancient body of accumulated knowledge of both oral and written traditions that existed before science, religion and government had differentiated into separate disciplines. She's also demonstrated (if only by implication) that the Solar Myth is/was the centerpiece of the mass control system of post-literate empires. This is not all that new, as the footnotes, citations and bibliography of her book will reveal. The Christ Conspiracy seems to be the first time anyone has synthesized all of these sources and their implications in one place, and especially in an easily accessible format for both specialists and non-specialists.)

I think we probably agree that the Jesus story is syncretic, rather than having unfolded from a single charismatic guy of incredible importance that is somehow monumentally absent from contemporaneous accounts. The verisimilitude and "personal" elements of the story are simply local color based on recurring stereotyped behaviors by any number of wannabe messiahs running around in Jerusalem, if even that, since the posturing of these revolt leaders was based on expectations due to the influence of the mythos.

When one eliminates the very specific and idiosyncratic events and attributes of "Jesus Christ" one-by-one by by finding them in earlier myth systems and stories ascribed to other god-heros (often with linguistically similar names), the only thing left is the place setting and minutiae which would apply to any novel or other fictional work written about Judea during that period of the Roman Empire. The rest of the Bible is similarly deconstructable.

The Bible is an object, and that object dissolves into what it actually is under even cursory scrutiny in the appropriate context.

On the other hand, I don't cease to exist simply because I can find a correlate to the solar mythos in every aspect of my life that I examine. Am I to conclude that I am Jesus Christ? I don't think so. There's room for cognitive illusion here.

The reason this suspicious quality of abstraction doesn't demolish the central thesis of The Christ Conspiracy is that in most cases one knows who the perpetrators/authors/promulgators of particular elements of the Jesus story are and what their motives were. It was common practice in the Roman Empire to deify and mythologize in order to control the population (a religious version of "bread and circuses" with emphasis on the circus) and to ascribe incontestible divine authority to the ruling regime - the divine right to rule and all that.

John Henry and Paul Bunyan. Were there really such guys? Maybe they were based around a real person? Probably not. They're the personifications of social ideals that represent an entire ethos, and which embody elements common to anyone involved in that ethos. They're mythical-heroic skeletons on which were hung the abstracted ornaments of a thousand minor incidents from different people - and these are cases in which the intent of the legend was to create a fictional personality, not the central mind-control system for an entire empire.

Thomas Paine said:

"The Christian religion and Masonry have one and the same common origin: Both are derived from the worship of the Sun. The difference between their origin is, that 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 ... "

... I think that hits the hammer right on that nail.... =) it's a beautiful thing, though, the sun.... and it is definitely there... so, somewhere along the lines, the words, which were metaphors, were taken literal, and names became people.... leave it to humanity to screw things up... and then patch up the holes... how does it feel to be a humanity repair gal?? =)

Most people don't understand the bible or symbolism. You really need to study the history in the bible from other historical view points. If the fundamentalists take the bible literaly then I would have to conclude, that the God of the Old Testament is EVIL.

Dear Acharya,

I have truly enjoyed your website, and I probably will be buying your book on the Christ Conspiracy. I have been a Christian for many years, but I am asking questions. I have wondered for a while why we copied the pagan cultures, instead of the other way around. Your website has helped me immensely, as I have been reading the articles by the two members of the Jesus seminar, now ex-Christians. All I can say is Wow. Also, would you know anything about the Roman Piso family, purported to have written the scriptures and Constantine approved of this. Josephus, Seneca and others were all part of this hoax and they didn't retract it for fear of losing their lives. Their website is:

http://www.widomaker.com//-piso/html/origin.html

Also, do you know anything in regard to the Knights Templar and the secret that is at Rennes Le Chateau in the Languedoc region of France?

I am really searching for answers because of all the hatred, strife and discord I see in Christianity. Thank you for your time.

You are most welcome. The Piso theory is ridiculous, except for its premise that Jesus is a fictional character. For more comments on Piso, do a search at my site.

Finally someone who shares my view of the world, but I have a little input of my own to throw in. Starting at the beginning of the year, the night of the first actually, I noticed how some things about how the universe works. At first I thought "God" was at work somehow and came to the realization that this was true - only through the "God" I found within myself. I guess Shakespeare put it best when he said "Life is but a stage and we are but players" of coursee I leave myself out of the "we". I guess you could say life is a big chessboard with 2 players. The male and female divine. The chess pieces are all the other people in the world. Basically everyone you see, every story you read, every story anyone's ever told you is either a past of future life to be lived or that has been lived. The time comes when these 2 entities in one version of themselves decides to search and see how the world works. All the answers are there, all they have to do is realize it and corrolate every bit of info they've ever gathered in this state of full consiousness, call it full "Grokness"....

Subject: Fundies at my Door

About 20 years I lived in the South (of the US). That’s where I first learned about Christian mythology. Since leaving the South, I’ve not had any contact with any fundamentalists except thru the news media, off the Web, and thru various tracts randomly handed to me in the subway, etc. So imagine my surprise when this last weekend, fundies appeared at my door, dressed nicely, with nice haircuts and fresh smiles. They were from a nearby Baptist church.

Since I’ve had a fascination with mythology in general and specifically in Christian myth for a long time, I’ve been voraciously reading the mountains of material I’ve printed (or just read from screen) from Acharya’s website and www.infidels.org. Those sites along with books I’ve read by Joesph Campbell, Thomas Paine, Robert Ingersoll, Joseph Wheless, Andrew White and C. Dennis McKinsey have contained the enlightenment I’ve found continually fascinating.

When the proselytizers appeared, and I saw that one of them had a slim copy of the KJV of the New Testament w/ Proverbs (no Old Testament!) I realized I had a perfect opportunity to do some proselytizing of my own—in the name of science and thoughtful research.

... Immediately after introducing themselves, and before I could even acknowledge their names, the question was posed by the Anglo one: “If you were to die tomorrow, would you know whether you would go to heaven or hell?”

Not wanting to be caught in their question, I turned the tables and responded with a question of my own. “Do you guys drink poison?”

The two were not even fazed by the question, but ... one immediately said, “That’s not necessary.”

My response was, “Well, Jesus said that if you were really followers and really believed in him that you could handle anything deadly—even drink poison and live.”

The ... one said, “Jesus didn’t say that.”

I said, “You haven’t read your Bible, have you?” I got my my copy of the KJV (and a pack of reference material) and showed the passage to him. Surprisingly, they didn’t indicate on the passage, having never seen it before.

I realized that I had them cornered at this point, since they were clearly fundies, but hadn’t read their entire Bible yet. So, as the conversation progressed I was to find out that they were not only cornered, but extremely ignorant. They were trying out their “I have the Absolute Truth” model, without being fully prepared.

I pulled out of my reference pack some research about the The World's 16 Crucified Saviors and asked them how they could be sure that Jesus was the true savior. They were noticeably agitated at that point, having never heard of any other saviors. I then proceeded to describe Krishna’s life and how it’s virtually identical to Jesus’—I gave lots of details. The response: "Man’s knowledge is imperfect and thus irrevelant." I told him that if he found a Hindu in my neighborhood and told him that his god, Krishna, was irrelevant that he might get slapped.

Realizing that they had no knowledge of history or other religions I chose a different angle. I turned the questioning directly to them to find out what they were aware of. I asked, “How old is the Earth?”

The response? “2000 years old.”

Ms. Acharya,

I was under the obviously mistaken impression that scholars of your sort had died out in the 1920s. You have an astoundingly large repertoire of knowledge with a thorough grounding in the classics that is, arguably, necessary to understand the directions taken throughout history.

I read with extreme approbation about the proposal for the Institute for Historical Accuracy. One encounters such rubbish on the net, perpetuated in good faith, by followers of Sitchin, Starhawk, Jesus etc. It's next to impossible to personally verify every bit of information out there. The initiation of a recognised body that could bestow some sort of recognisable seal of approval would go a long way toward establishing a sense of certainty with respect to web site information dissemination. I sincerely hope that your institute accomplishes this goal in addition to correcting the institutional media. And while you're at it, how about an institute of exacting logic?

I think that you've set my reading list for the next decade....

I'm a little confused as to your inclusion of so many of the Mu/Atlantis writers. Do those authors really include few historical inaccuracies?

[After studying them for decades, I find the Atlantis/Mu arguments very compelling, especially from an archaeological/linguistical perspective.

I am ... a reader and great admirer of Acharya's for about 6 months now. I have come out of just about anything religiously bad and stifling you could name, including most recently a very, very mind-crippling cult. Somehow I escaped with my mind (mostly) intact.... I am no longer a Christian, and no longer ascribe any holiness whatsoever to the book most call the bible. (How freeing it is to realize that there's no "god" peeking over my shoulder, or in my own mind, or in my bedroom, or in my underwear, having a concern over my sexuality!) I no longer consider sexuality in any of its consenting manifestations to be a moral issue, nor do I believe that it is any of my concern what other adults do with each other in private. I simply don't care anymore....

Subject: Nazareth

Hello Acharya,

... I am currently reading your long awaited book, The Christ Conspiracy - The Greatest Story Ever Sold. I have also viewed the "The Naked Truth" tape.

I love your truthbeknown site by the way!

For years my mind upheld the supposed truths of the Bible and questioned not the historicity of the Jesus character. I was raised Roman Catholic. A few years back, I began reading various texts on Eastern religions, philosophy etc. I especially remember reading The Messianic Legacy by Michael Baigent and Henry Lincoln. I was dumbfounded by the quote of Pope Leo X, who uttered "What profit has not that fable of Christ brought us." I remember thinking, this can't be true.

Since then, I have read some works of Robert Ingersoll, Joseph Wheless, John Remsburg, Mangasarian, and of course yours! I am amazed that I, as well as society as a whole has been duped for so long. My investigations have been quite enlightening!

Since reading that one quote, I have been searching for "truth." I am now almost 51 years old and very grateful for tripping over the works mentioned previously and especially yours. I thank you and others for opening my eyes.

I have a question for you. I know that you have an archeological background. I recently read on a "Christian Think Tank" making reference to a "proof" that the village of Nazareth existed because of some inscription discovery in 1962 in "Caesara Maritima" which confirms Nazareth's early existence.

Have you ever heard of the "Caesara Maritima" or its supposed inscription whatever it is? ...

Thanks again, Acharya, for your work. You are very well educated and quite the fox, if you don't mind my saying!

[It seems that, as usual, it takes very little to "prove" something out of the (mostly fictitious) Judeo-Christian bible. There is no mention of Nazareth in the Old Testament or any texts of the first century CE. Caesarea was a port city built by Herod the Great in honor of Caesar Augustus (1st cent. BCE). It contained a site for Mithra worship. As we know, Christianity "borrowed" much of its myth and ritual from Mithraism. The above "Christian Think Tank" link cites some credible scholarship as concerns the existence of Nazareth. However, it should be noted that there was also allegedly a Nazareth in Arabia, where also purportedly was the story of "Issa," who was born of the "Virgin Mary," a myth dating back in that area at least 400 years before the Common Era. It seems as if "Nazareth" was transplanted, perhaps by the "priests of the order of Elkalir," sometime during the second century CE to a previously occupied site. I have not found any other reference to "Elkalir." However, "el," of course, is Semitic, i.e., Hebrew and Arabic, and "kalir" ("lightbearer") is Turkish, which would also be Arabic or Palestinian. Such would fit in nicely with the notion of transportation by an Arabian cult. " ... He is also called Jesus of Nazareth from his supposed birth-place, but there is no trace of such a place in contemporaries, and the practice of modern religious writers of identifying it with the existing En-Nazira is very precarious and disputed."

I am very pleased for you...

Was it Buddha that said "The journey must begin with a single step?" He should have added that it should also be in the direction you wish to go. I see for you an influence over the entire world of mankind and for all time to come... I wonder what will it require of you and what you must do next?

Don't forget that as much as Christianity mimics the sun, Judaism and Islam have worked the lunar in the night... and they will see where all this must go. Be careful.

Devotion for the principle and the reality of truth is a lesson beyond the ordinary. It is to know oneself so well that the perception of others can be equally interchanged without a noticable difference in our own reality.

Greatness may be in what others say of us, but true greatness has lived in the heart long before another ever knew of it and was guide to what we have done. Those so blessed, knew or sensed it long before it happened... like a calling from some future sense of our own being.

You have this opportunity.

Greetings,

I had the misfortune of catching Mr. Buchanan on the Matt Drudge TV show on Saturday evening. Pat was at his bellicose best for the cameras. THREE CALLERS referred to Mr.Buchanan as a visionary who would save our nation from the grips of globalist forces. Even Mr. Drudge jumped on the Buchanan party ship...these people seem to believe that the US should be separate from the world community. I wonder if they would be willing to restrict the import of rare metals as readily as they would like to restrict Japanes autos? Or perhaps all those Indian programmers that have helped to remediate information systems in advance of the Y2000 date change? Or the hispanic laborers that are caring for their children, cutting their grass and working in the restaurants that serve them the meals that they eat on Sunday. After all, Christians aren`t supposed to work on the "Lord's day" although the hispanic workers are clearly exempt from the dictates of the bible. :-)

Congrats on your wonderful website...keep illuminating the web!

[Hi - I used to not like Buchanan at all, but I have to agree that those in power he targets are in general very unsavory. The "globalist forces," of course, is a euphemism for some very powerful folk of a particular brainwashing or ethnicity who basically run the world. At least he's got the balls to challenge them. Naturally, much of his spiel is white male-oriented - I don't particularly care for his sexual subordination, or mindless support of Catholicism. Thanks for the kudos!!

It is refreshing to read someone whose viewpoint I can relate to, (even more so after seeing you are an attractive woman), adds a little excitement to the whole thing!

LOL I have been interested in the truth for many years, and it has been very frustrating as of late as I have come to realize that in the pursuit of truth, one has to constantly deal with the question of whether ones source of info is telling the TRUTH!!! When younger I had a more naive attitude, but as the years have gone by, I have realized there is much DECEPTION in the world. LYING and DECEPTION are things I despise and am entirely tired of dealing with. I have done my own little research in the bible and discovered many contradictions, yet for some reason the world of Christianity goes on regardless of there existence in the book they claim is 100 percent accurate. For some reason despite my value for integrity, the universe gave me an opportunity to deal with a girlfriend who, LIED, LIED, LIED. Hmmmm...LIke to think good will come of it! LOL.

Let me just say that I think The Christ Conspiracy is THE most important contribution to the world that I have yet seen. It ranks as my all time favorite book and I have a list of at least 20 people that I plan on giving a copy to....

This book sews up SO MUCH that I have learned in my quest through life and is giving me a more well rounded vision, as well as, new avenues to pursue, like astrology (the study of the celestial bodies meaning and interrelationships) and astrotheology...into "ancient wisdom...into the deepest mists of time". I read several pages to my husband last night ... and he is VERY impressed. I'm sure this will push him to the point of saying goodbye to the cult that he is in.

So many people that do not read would greatly benefit from an audiobook. Whatd'ya think Acharya, is that in the making?

I do see that you have much, much more to write about (I do wish this book had no end) ...

Let me suggest that we call the bookstores and request copies to be stocked. I intend to call all the bookstores several times each, until they order several for stock. A few of my friends will do the same I'm sure.

"Issa-ra-el, the kingdom of the moon (Isis), Sun (Ra), and stars (El)." COOL
"Solstice" etymology = "sun stands still" FORKIN' COOL! (and, being an obedient student, I confirmed that it is so).

I can truthfully & in all sincerity say that your book, The Christ Conspiracy: The Greatest Story Ever Sold, is THE ONE MOST IMPORTANT CONTRIBUTION ever made to the 21st Century! For what use are exciting "medical breakthroughs," "wonderful new inventions," "heady knowledge," and "greatly advanced technology," if the whole planet REMAINS deceived and in spiritual darkness? In spite of all of these "rapid-growth developments," the whole planet is still plagued with the stench of a rotting, cancerous growth, and earth will remain desperately ill, if the cancer continues to only be treated with a Band-Aid, when major surgery is required! Your book, exposes the cancer (religious deception), and the remedy (enlightenment & removal) for this sickness! Let's determine to send-forth tremendous SPIRITUAL ENERGY & LIGHT, in hopes that every one on planet earth will read and respond to the awakening knowledge that you bring forth in The Christ Conspiracy. If not, there doesn't seem to be much hope left for our beautiful earth!

Of course, my favorite chapter was, "The Myth of Hebrew Monotheism!" I would like your permission to copy that chapter (saying, of course, that it is taken from your book, and authored by you) and send it to all of my Jewish family members, friends, co-workers, synagogue friends, rabbis, etc. I doubt if any of them would buy the book, as they already know that "Jesus" was a fake/myth, and so would miss out on the most important chapter!

My son's favorite chapter, of course, was, "The Bible, Sex and Drugs." HA!

I can see that I am going to have to order more copies, so we (my family members) won't fight over who gets to read it!

How can I ever thank you enough, Acharya? I know this must have been a long and excruciating undertaking, with a lot of self-denial for you, to research & write this MOST WONDERFUL BOOK! I just hope that the eyes & spirit of mankind on planet earth will be open to everything that you bring forth in the book! I know that is hoping for a lot, in view of the thick darkness that "covers the earth" (guess the O.T. was right about THAT, huh?). Maybe, as the new Millenium approaches, more and more people will begin to question old teachings that haven't worked, and that their hearts and minds will be open to truth, light and proof of the real workings of the universe! I SO sincerely hope so!! Wouldn't it be a wonderful thing if, at last, "HOLY (?) WARS" would cease?

P.S.... All that you revealed in your The Christ Conspiracy: The Greatest Story Ever Sold, I had already dug out through years & years of heartbreaking investigation & research! But your book just confirmed what I already knew & what I had already come out of! And, your book put its all together....

... So much on your site is exactly what I have been thinking about for years. I especially liked your part on entheogens. I have always wondered about this stuff, and read alot about it, starting with R.Gordon Wasson and ending up with Terrence McKenna. I recently saw Robert Anton Wilson speak, and I asked him about what he thought would happen with the war on drugs. He correctly corrected me and said "oh, you mean the war on SOME drugs." He said that it would become increasingly impossible to fight and they would give up within ten years. I disagreed with him. I think we are moving into Burrough's world of Guards and Prisoners myself. What do you think on the matter? I mean, we are at the height of hypocrisy with even contemplating Bush for president, but then look at them all since Kennedy ...

Also, the Talmud. I read your discussions about judaism and I found it very interesting. The edition of the Talmud that you recommended is over $800.00!!!! Anywhere else I can find this information without such an expenditure?

... you have to be one of the most interesting people I have ever had the honor to meet....

... My wife & I have often remarked that the immense wealth accumulated by religious organizations and public evangelists are the most blatant evidence that they do not have the interests of the people in mind or heart...

... Money spent on Church buildings, furnishings and clerical salaries would feed, clothe and provide medical services for millions of people.

The old Vikings had the right idea in their method of worshipping their old gods. The priests were not allowed to accept money or gratuities from the people. They were required to earn their living from outside the religious world. By working real jobs.

Modern religion produces parasites that suck the living blood from parishioners and in return offer nothing but guilt. Religion is a conspiracy that humanity has fostered off on itself, because it is to weak as a whole, to acknowledge the truth that spiritual enlightenment is to be found in our own hearts and not the words of priests pandering to a central oppressive organization that is bent on keeping the population on a tight leash.

... I love the book. I have many books touching on your topic, but you've put it all together in a very interesting, readable, logical format. This one leaps immediately to my top 10 all-time favorite list. Thanks for your wonderful work. It's people like you (though few they be) that give me hope for the future of humanity. I've had a number of "teachers" in my life, but you are the one helping me finish up one millenium and starting the new one right. I admire your work and mind very much, and it's a neat bonus that you're also cuter than a speckled puppy. Thanks. Love always.

At last! I received your book from Amazon today! A quick perusal reveals a quality of scholarship and erudition .... In fact, my initial impression was "What a breath of fresh air!" and "Ahhhh! At last I've got some ammo in my self-declared war on Religious Ignorance!" Of course you're going to be responsible for my losing my daily 4 hours of sleep - as I'll probably read the book straight through tonight, and than fantasize about who I'm going to buy copies for... :>) )

... You did such a great job in listing the facts and fiction.

Thank you for putting it all in one easy to read volume. Although I must admit that I got into a little trouble with a nurse at a local medical center when I was reading it while waiting for my elderly Mother. Guess that I need to be a little careful for there are believers out there no matter what the facts.

After reading your book, I think that the Emperor Constantine should have been made a major Saint by the Catholic Church for his creation of Christ and Christianity. What a genius! What a politician, eat your heart out Clinton....

Maybe you should have offered it to the Vatican and gave them a chance to buy you out. You missed a chance for salvation for I am afraid that they will not be offering you sainthood now. Oh for the days of the Inquisition when they could have dealt "properly" with you for your own good, of course.

Keep the "Good" work up and spread the real Word!

Dear Acharya,

Many thanks for passing me the message. I am passing it on to people around me but it's going to be such a shock for them. People have to grow. It's our duty to help in exposing the hoax.

Hi!

I've explored your site and have enjoyed it greatly even though I don't share all of your beliefs - I'm a 'hard' Atheist and definitely not spiritual. It's refreshing to see someone as critical of Christianity as you, especially being such a beautiful woman. (You're quite the babe!) Anyway, I wanted to pass along a link to you that I thought you'd enjoy.

Keep up the good work pissing off the religious right!

Ms. Acharya,

I was under the obviously mistaken impression that scholars of your sort had died out in the 1920s. You have an astoundingly large repertoire of knowledge with a thorough grounding in the classics that is, arguably, necessary to understand the directions taken throughout history.
