Christ Conspiracy - The Greatest Story Ever Sold"
As demonstrated, Christianity was built
upon a long line of myths from a multitude of nations and basically
represents the universal astrological mythos and ritual. In its
creation was used a typical mythmaking device: To wit, when an
invading culture takes over its predecessors, it often vilifies the
preceding gods and goddesses or demotes them to lesser gods,
patriarchs, prophets, kings, heroes and/or saints.
is found throughout the Old Testament as well, as previously noted
regarding the “prophets” Daniel, Esther and Deborah, who were
ancient gods of other cultures.
As also demonstrated, prior to the
vilification of the Baals of Canaan,
Yahweh himself was a Baal. In
fact, the Old Testament actually records the epics of Canaanite
gods, as was evidenced with the discovery in 1975 of 20,000 clay
tablets nearly 4,500 years old in the ruins of the large city of
Ebla at Tell Mardikh in northwestern Syria.
Of Ebla, John Fulton
“It existed 1,000 years before David and Solomon and was
destroyed by the Akkadians in around 1600
The language recorded on these tablets is old Canaanite, very
similar to biblical Hebrew, written in the Sumerian cuneiform
script. These tablets contain hundreds of place names, a number of
which are found in the Old Testament, including “Urusalima,” i.e.,
They also contain the names of Hebrew “patriarchs” who,
according to the Bible, would not exist for hundreds to over a
thousand years later, such as “Abramu (Abraham), Esaum (Esau),
Ishmailu (Ishmael), even Israilu (Israel), and from later periods,
names like Da‘u’dum (David) and Sa‘ulum (Saul).”
also contain the Canaanite creation and flood myths from which the
very similar biblical versions were obviously plagiarized.
reality, the Israelites were mainly Canaanites, passing along the
myths of their ancestors, which were corrupted over the centuries.
When the Yahwists imposed monotheism on both the Levantine peoples
and their scriptures, they subjugated the wide variety of Canaanite
Baals under their “one Lord” and turned these “foreign” gods into
“patriarchs” and assorted other characters, good and bad.
As Dujardin says:
Where Judaism fully succeeded, the ancient Baals of Palestine were
transformed into heroic servants of Jahveh; where it gained only a
partial victory, they became secondary gods.... Many of the old Baals of Palestine were assimilated by Judaism, which converted them
into heroes in the cause of Jahveh, and in fact many scholars agree
that the patriarchs of the Bible are the ancient gods of
Dujardin further outlines the process by which “Baals” or “foreign”
gods were changed into Hebrew patriarchs, kings, prophets and
The ancient divinities of Palestine are transformed by the Bible
into historical characters and turned into servants of Jahveh.
Their sanctuaries are turned into sanctuaries raised by them to
Jahveh, or into tombs where they are buried, or into monuments of
their exploits. Sometimes, however, their names, or those of the
animals that they had been originally, were given to a place, and
were no longer used except to denote it.
The names of the clans, derived from these divinities and from
the names of animals that they had originally been, became the names
of persons, and were introduced into the interminable genealogies
invented to glorify great families of the Jewish state. All this was
by way of assimilation.
Proscription was effected by devoting to abomination all the
cults that offered resistance.
Also by making impure such animals as had originally been ancient
gods, by forbidding
the eating of them, or by
putting a curse on them
And by transforming some of the rites and myths of these cults
into historical legends
In this manner, ancient gods of other nations were mutated into not
only biblical individuals but also tribes and nations.
Noah and the Flood
The fable of Noah purports to be the true story of the progenitor of
the human race; however, like so many other biblical characters,
Noah is a myth, found earlier in India, Egypt, Babylon, Sumer and
The fact is that there have been floods and deluge
stories in many different parts of the world, including but not
limited to the Middle East.
There was never any one Great Deluge as in the Biblical rendering.... at least
ten Great Deluges have taken place at each glacial
epoch, when the snow and ice have melted.... There was also a
great inundation once a year—when the Nile came down in flood. There
is a portrayal on the monuments where Num is in his boat or Ark
waiting for this flood.
Regarding the ubiquitous flood myth, Walker says:
The biblical flood story, the “deluge,” was a late offshoot of a
cycle of flood myths known everywhere in the ancient world.
Thousands of years before the Bible was written, an ark was built by
the Sumerian Ziusudra.
In Akkad, the flood hero’s name was
In Babylon, he was UtaNapishtim, the only mortal to
In Greece he was Deucalion, who repopulated the
earth after the waters subsided [and after the ark landed on Mt. Parnassos]...
In Armenia, the hero was Xisuthros—a corruption of
Sumerian Ziusudra—whose ark landed on Mount Ararat.
According to the
original Chaldean account, the flood hero was told by his god,
“Build a vessel and finish it. By a deluge I will destroy substance
and life. Cause thou to go up into the vessel the substance of all
that has life.”
Xisuthros or Ziusudra was considered the “10th king,” while Noah was
the “10th patriarch.” Noah’s “history” can also be found in India,
where there is a “tomb of Nuh” near the river Gagra in the district
of Oude or Oudh, which evidently is related to Judea and Judah.
“arkpreserved” Indian Noah was also called “Menu.” Noah is also
called “Nnu” and “Naue,” as in “Joshua son of Nun/Jesus son of Naue,”
meaning not only fish but also water, as in the waters of heaven.
Furthermore, the word Noah, or Noé, is the same as the Greek ????,
which means “mind,” as in “noetics,” as does the word Menu or Menes,
as in “mental.”
In Hebrew, the word for “ark” is THB, as in Thebes,
such that the Ark of Noah is equivalent to the Thebes of Menes, the
legendary first king of the Egyptians, from whose “history” the
biblical account also borrowed.
Obviously, then, Noah’s famous “ark,” which misguided souls have
sought upon the earth, is a motif found in other myths.
“The image of Osiris of Egypt was by the priests shut up in
a sacred ark on the 17th of Athyr (Nov. 13th), the very day and
month on which Noah is said to have entered his ark.”
in fact, another solar myth, and the ark represents the sun entering
into the “moonark,” the Egyptian “argha,” which is the crescent or
arc-shaped lunette or lower quarter of the moon.
This “argha of Noah”
is the same as Jason’s “Argonaut” and “arghanatha” in Sanskrit.
Noah’s ark and its eight “sailors” are equivalent to
the heavens, earth and the seven “planets,” i.e., those represented
by the days of the week. As to the “real” Noah’s ark, it should be
noted that it was a custom, in Scotland for one, to create stone
“ships” on mounts in emulation of the mythos, such that any number
of these “arks” may be found on Earth.
Like Noah, the Sumerian Ziusudra had three sons, including one named
“Japetosthes,” essentially the same as Noah’s son Japheth, also
related to Prajapatid clxxii
or Jvapeti, son of the Indian Menu, whose other sons possessed
virtually the same names as those of Noah, i.e., Shem and Ham.
As Hazelrigg says,
“These parallel the Hindu version of the same myth,
wherein Menu Satyvrah figures as Noah, and Sherma, Charma, and
Jvapeti are easily identified with the offspring.”
In the Bible, Noah’s sons are depicted as the “fathers” of various
nations and races: Shem is the progenitor of the Semites; Japheth,
the Aryans; and Ham, the “Hamites,” or Africans.
The story has been
turned into racist propaganda, as the Semites are considered the
best and Japhethites suitable enough to “dwell in the tents of the
Semites,” while the Hamites are to serve as slaves to the other two,
as a punishment for Ham ridiculing the drunken, naked Noah. Not only
is such a punishment absurdly harsh, but Noah is not a historical
character; thus, a fable has served to justify slavery.
The sons of Noah, of course, are also not historical, as Shem,
actually a title of Egyptian priests of Ra.”
The three sons
of Noah, in fact, represent the three divisions of the heavens into
120° each. dclxxv
As characters in the celestial mythos, Noah
corresponds to the sun and Shem to the moon, appropriate since the
Jews were moon-worshippers.
Abraham and Sarah
Although Abraham is held up as the patriarch of the Hebrews and
Arabs, the original Abraham and Sarah were the same as the Indian
god Brahma and goddess Sarasvati, the “Queen of Heaven,” and the
story of Abraham’s migration is reflective of a Brahmanical tribe
leaving India at the end of the Age of Taurus. This identification
of Abraham and Sarah as Indian gods did not escape the notice of the
Jesuit missionaries in India; indeed, it was they who first pointed
it Concerning the patriarch and his wife, Walker states:
This name meaning “Father Brahm” seems to have been a Semitic
version of India’s patriarchal god Brahma; he was also the Islamic
Abrama, founder of Mecca. But Islamic legends say Abraham was a late
intruder into the shrine of the Kaaba. He bought it from priestesses
of its original Goddess.
Sarah, “the Queen,” was one of the
Goddess’s titles, which became a name of Abraham’s biblical “wife”... In the tale of Isaac’s near-killing, Abraham assumed the role
of sacrificial priest in the druidic style, to wash Jehovah’s sacred
trees with the Blood of the Son: an ancient custom, of which the
sacrifice of Jesus was only a late variant.
Brahma and Sarasvati were apparently also turned into the Indian
patriarch Adjigarta and his wife Parvati. Like Abram/ Abraham, in
the Indian version Adjigarta beseeches the Lord for an heir and
eventually takes a young red goat to sacrifice on the mountain,
where the Lord speaks to him.
As in the biblical tale, a stranger
approaches Parvati, who gives him refreshments, and tells her that
she will bring forth a son named Viashagagana (Isaac), “the reward
When the child is 12, the Lord commands Adjigarta to
sacrifice him, which the father faithfully begins to do, until the
Lord stops him and blesses him as the progenitor of a virgin who
will be divinely impregnated.
Of the near-sacrifice by Abraham,
“This too is an old story and like so many others in
the Bible, originated in India. Siva, like Abraham, was about to
sacrifice his son on a funeral pyre, but his God, repenting,
miraculously provided a rhinoceros instead.”
Abraham also seems to have been related to the Persian evil god,
Ahriman, whose name was originally Abriman.
also had their Abraham, only they spelt it Abarama. He was a farmer
and mythological contemporary with Abraham.”
relates that Abraham is also identified with the planet Saturn:
“The Semitic name, Abraham,” says Dr. Wilder, “appears to be made
from the two words Ab and Ram, thus signifying ‘The Father on High.’
This, in astral theology, is a designation of the planet Saturn, or
Kronos, and of the divinity bearing those names”...
then, shall we find the difference between the patriarch Abraham and
the god Saturn? Saturn was the son of Terra, and Abraham was the son
“Our Father which art in heaven” was a direct
prayer to this paternal principle, and for this reason Christ (Sun)
is expressly denominated as the Son of Abraham, or Son of the
Father, because the Sun is the center of a system about which Saturn
describes an encompassing circle.
Regarding details of the Abramic story, Walker says:
The biblical mother-shrine Mamre at Hebron included a sacred oak in a
female-symbolic grove. Old Testament scribes pretended it was the
home of Abraham, although even in the fourth century A.D. it was
still a pagan site, dedicated to the worship of “idols.”
Furthermore, Abram’s “Ur of the Chaldees” apparently does not
originally refer to the Ur in Mesopotamia and to the Middle Eastern
Chaldean culture but to an earlier rendition in India, where
Higgins, for one, found the proto-Hebraic Chaldee language.
Regarding Sarah, Walker relates that the,
“original name of Israel
meant ‘the tribe of Sarah.’ Her name was formerly Sara’i, The Queen,
a name of the Great Goddess in Nabataean inscriptions. Priests
changed her name to Sarah in the sixth century B.C.”
stories serve not as chronicles of individuals but of gods and
tribes, such that, as Walker further relates,
“Sarah was the
maternal goddess of the ‘Abraham’ tribe that formed an alliance with
Egypt in the 3rd millennium B.C.”
Hence the story of
Abraham and Sarah in Egypt.
Moses, the Exodus, the Ten Commandments
The legend of Moses, rather than being that of a historical Hebrew
lawgiver, is found from the Mediterranean to India, with the
character having different names and races, depending on the locale:
“Manou” is the Indian legislator.
“Nemo the lawgiver,” who brought
down the tablets from the Mountain of God, hails from Babylon.
“Mises” is found in Syria, where he was pulled out of a basket
floating in a river. Mises also had tablets of stone upon which laws
were written, and a rod with which he did miracles, including
parting waters and leading his army across the sea.
addition, “Manes the lawgiver” took the stage in Egypt, and “Minos”
was the Cretan reformer.
Jacolliot traces the original Moses to the Indian Manou:
of Manou, or Manes... is not a substantive, applying to an
individual man; its Sanskrit signification is the man, par
excellence, the legislator. It is a title aspired to by all the
leaders of men in antiquity.”
Like Moses, Krishna was placed by his mother in a reed boat and set
adrift in a river to be discovered by another woman. The Akkadian
Sargon also was placed in a reed basket and set adrift to save his
“The name Moses is Egyptian and comes from mo, the
Egyptian word for water, and uses, meaning saved from water, in this
Thus, this title Moses could be applied to
any of these various heroes saved from the water.
Walker elaborates on the Moses myth:
The Moses tale was originally that of an Egyptian hero, RaHarakhti,
the reborn sun god of Canopus, whose life story was copied by
biblical scholars. The same story was told of the sun hero fathered
by Apollo on the virgin Creusa; of Sargon, king of Akkad in 2242
B.C.; and of the mythological twin founders of Rome, among many
other baby heroes set adrift in rush baskets. It was a common
Furthermore, Moses’s rod is a magical, astrology stick used by a
number of other mythical characters.
Of Moses' miraculous exploits,
Walker also relates:
Moses’s flowering rod, river of blood, and tablets of the law were
all symbols of the ancient Goddess. His miracle of drawing water
from a rock was first performed by Mother Rhea after she gave birth
to Zeus, and by Atalanta with the help of Artemis. His miracle of
drying up the waters to travel dryshod was earlier performed by
Isis, or Hathor, on her way to Byblos.
And Higgins states:
In Bacchus we evidently have Moses. Herodotus says [Bacchus] was an
The Orphic verses relate that he was preserved from
the waters, in a little box or chest, that he was called Misem in
commemoration of the event; that he was instructed in all the
secrets of the Gods; and that he had a rod, which he changed into a
serpent at his pleasure; that he passed through the Red Sea dryshod,
as Hercules subsequently did... and that when he went to India,
he and his army enjoyed the light of the Sun during the night:
moreover, it is said, that he touched with his magic rod the waters
of the great rivers Orontes and Hydaspes; upon which those waters
flowed back and left him a free passage.
It is even said that he
arrested the course of the sun and moon. He wrote his laws on two
tablets of stone. He was anciently represented with horns or rays on
It has also been demonstrated that the biblical account of the
Exodus could not have happened in history.
Of this implausible
story, Mead says:
... Bishop Colenso’s... mathematical arguments that an army of
600,000 men could not very well have been mobilized in a single
night, that three millions of people with their flocks and herds
could not very well have drawn water from a single well, and
hundreds of other equally ludicrous inaccuracies of a similar
nature, were popular points which even the most unlearned could
appreciate, and therefore especially roused the ire of apologists
The apologists and conservatives, however, have little choice in the
matter, as there is no evidence of the Exodus and wandering in the
desert being historical:
But even scholars who believe they really happened admit that
there’s no proof whatsoever that the Exodus took place. No record of
this monumental event appears in Egyptian chronicles of the time,
and Israeli archaeologists combing the Sinai during intense searches
from 1967 to 1982?years when Israel occupied the peninsula—didn’t
find a single piece of evidence backing the Israelites’ supposed
40-year sojourn in the desert.
The story involves so many miracles—plagues, the parting of the Red
Sea, manna from heaven, the giving of the Ten Commandments—that some
critics feel the whole story has the flavor of pure myth. A massive
exodus that led to the drowning of Pharaoh’s army, says Father
Anthony Axe, Bible lecturer at Jerusalem’s Ecole Biblique, would
have reverberated politically and economically through the entire
And considering that artifacts from as far back as the late
Stone Age have turned up in the Sinai, it is perplexing that no
evidence of the Israelites’ passage has been found. William Dever, a
University of Arizona archaeologist, flatly calls Moses a mythical
figure. Some scholars even insist the story was a political
fabrication, invented to unite the disparate tribes living in Canaan
through a falsified heroic past.
Potter sums up the mythicist argument regarding Moses:
The reasons for doubting his existence include, among others,
the parallels between the Moses stories and older ones like that of
the absence of any Egyptian account of such a great
event as the Pentateuch asserts the Exodus to have been
attributing to Moses of so many laws that are known to have
originated much later
the correlative fact that great codes
never suddenly appear fullborn but are slowly evolved
difficulties of fitting the slavery, the Exodus, and the conquest of
Canaan into the known chronology of Egypt and Palestine
extreme probability that some of the twelve tribes were never in
Egypt at all.
As Churchward states,
“Only one mention of the people of Israel
occurs by name on all the monuments of Egypt.... There is no
possibility of identifying this with the Biblical Israelites.”
Israel in Egypt is not an ethnical entity—the story represents the
children of Ra in the Lower Egypt of Amenta, built or founded by
Ptah, and entirely mythical.... The Books of Genesis, Exodus, and
Joshua are not intentional forgeries; the subject-matter was already
extant in the Egyptian Mysteries, and an exoteric version of the
ancient wisdom has been rendered in the form of historic narrative
and ethnically applied to the Jews....
The chief teachers have
always insisted on the allegorical nature of the Pentateuch. Thus it
is seen that “Biblical History” has been mainly derived from
misappropriated and misinterpreted wisdom of Egypt contained in
their mythological and eschatological representation as witnessed by
the “Ritual of Ancient Egypt.”
The Exodus is indeed not a historical event but constitutes a motif
found in other myths.
As Pike says,
“And when Bacchus and his army
had long marched in burning deserts, they were led by a Lamb or Ram
into beautiful meadows, and to the Springs that watered the Temple
of Jupiter Ammon.”
And Churchward relates,
“Traditions of the
Exodus are found in various parts of the world and amongst people of
different states of evolution, and these traditions can be explained
by the Kamite [Egyptian] rendering only.”
Indeed, as Massey
“‘Coming out of Egypt’ is a Kamite expression for ascending
from the lower to the upper heavens.”
Churchward further outlines the real meaning of the Exodus:
The Exodus or “Coming out of Egypt” first celebrated by the festival
of Passover or the transit at the vernal equinox, occurred in the
heavens before it was made historical as the migration of the Jews.
The 600,000 men who came up out of Egypt as Hebrew warriors in the
Book of Exodus are 600,000 inhabitants of Israel in the heavens
according to Jewish Kabalah, and the same scenes, events, and
personages that appear as mundane in the Pentateuch are celestial in
the Book of Enoch.
Churchward continues, also explaining the notorious “plagues”:
If we wish to show that the Jews’ version was a fable, we can obtain
the proofs in Egypt, and nowhere else. The sufferings of the Chosen
People in Egypt, and their miraculous exodus out of it, belong to
the celestial allegory...
The allegory of the Solar drama was
performed in the mysteries of the divine netherworld, and had been
performed by symbolical representations ages before it was converted
into a history of the Jews by the literalizers of the Ancient
Symbolism. The tale of the ten plagues of Egypt contains an esoteric
version of the tortures inflicted on the guilty in the ten hells of
The exodus out of Egypt refers to that out of Amenta, which,
described in the Ritual as consisting of two parts called ‘Egypt and
the desert land or wilderness.’”
Of the ritualistic wandering
in the wilderness, Churchward says:
The Struggle of Set and Horus in the desert lasted forty days, as
commemorated in the forty days of the Egyptian Lent, during which
time Set, as the power of drought and sterility, made war on Horus
in the water and the buried germinating grain.... These forty
days have been extended into forty years, and confessedly so by the Jews.
In addition, the miraculous “parting of the Red Sea” has forever
mystified the naive and credulous masses and scholars alike, who
have put forth all sorts of tortured speculation to explain it.
parting and destruction of the hosts of Pharaoh at the Red Sea is
not recorded by any known historian, which is understandable, since
it is, of course, not historical and is found in other cultures,
including in Ceylon/Sri Lanka, out of which the conquering shepherd
kings (Pharaohs) were driven across “Adam’s Bridge” and drowned.
This motif is also found in the Hawaiian and Hottentot versions of
the Moses myth, prior to contact with outside cultures.
crossing of the Red Sea is astronomical, expressly stated by
Josephus to have occurred at the autumnal equinox,
its origin within the mythos.
Moreover, the famed Ten Commandments are simply a repetition of the
Code of Hammurabi and the Hindu Vedas, among others.
As Churchward says:
The “Law of Moses” were the old Egyptian Laws...; this the stele
or “Code of Hammurabi” conclusively proves. Moses lived 1,000 years
after this stone was engraved.
Walker relates that the,
“stone tablets of law supposedly given to
Moses were copied from the Canaanite god Baal-Berith, ‘God of the
Covenant.’ Their Ten Commandments were similar to the commandments
of the Buddhist Decalogue. In the ancient world, laws generally came
from a deity on a mountaintop. Zoroaster received the tablets of law
from Ahura Mazda on a mountain-top.”
Doane sums it up when he says,
“Almost all the acts of Moses
correspond to those of the Sungods.”
However, the Moses story
is also reflective of the stellar cult, once again demonstrating the
dual natured “twin” HorusSet myth and the battle for supremacy
between the day and night skies, as well as among the solar, stellar
and lunar cults.
The Jews strictly are of the Tribe, or Totemic Clan of Judah. The
Israelites were not Jews, although some Jews may be Israelites.
Moses and his followers have been termed Israelites, but there is no
evidence that the “Israelites” were ever in Egypt except once when
they made a raid, and were driven back with great slaughter. The
Israelites, a mythological name, were a number of Totemic Tribes who
originally left Egypt and went to the East during the Stellar
As noted, early Christian father Tertullian made the ridiculous
claim that “the Lord” had “rehearsed his subsequent incarnation” as
Jesus by becoming characters recorded in the OT.
The major such
character about which Tertullian and the other fathers write is the
prophet and warrior Joshua, son of Nun, also translated as Jesus,
son of Naue, who allegedly led the Israelites into the “promised
land” and destroyed the city of Jericho, among other such pillage
Of Joshua’s purported adventures, Time reports:
Historians generally agree that Joshua’s conquest would have taken
place in the 13th century B.C. But British researcher Kathleen
Kenyon, who excavated at Jericho for six years, found no evidence of
destruction at that time. Indeed, says Dead Sea Scrolls curator
emeritus Broshi, “the city was deserted from the beginning of the
15th century until the 11th century B.C.”
So was Ai, say Broshi and
others. And so, according to archaeological surveys, was most of the
land surrounding the cities. Says Broshi: “The central hill regions
of Judea and Samaria were practically uninhabited. The Israelites
didn’t have to kill and burn to settle.”
In reality, the patriarch Joshua was based on Horus as “Iusa,” and
the Joshua story represents the Horus cult in the Levant, when the
stellar cult of the “sons of Seth” yielded to the solar.
not only Horus himself but also his “brother,” the Egyptian god “Shu,”
or “ShusiRa,” the “auxiliary” or son of Ra and “Uplifter of the
Heavens,” and Joshua was said to be the “preserver” or “deliverer”
sun in Aries. dccix
As Churchward says of Shu:
He is the helper of Horus as the Solar God upon the horizon where
the great battle is fought against the Apap of darkness... This has
been rendered in the Hebrew as “Joshua helping to fight the
battle of the Lord.”... Shu was chief of the sustaining powers of
the firmament, who were known in one phase as the seven giants.
then became the elevator of the Heavens that was imaged as the Cow
of Nut. Lastly, he was the sustaining power with AtumHorus in the
In Canaan, Joshua was Baal Jehoshua, the “Lord of Salvation,” but
when his cult had been suppressed by the Levites/Yahwists, he was
demoted to a Hebrew patriarch and hero of the northern kingdom.
However, his worship was continued “underground” atop Mt. Carmel,
site of a preChristian temple of the Lord Jesus, Baal Jeshouah.
Indeed, the Joshua cult was situated in basically the same area
where the Christ drama allegedly took place, with Joshua mutating
into Jesus. dccxii In fact, the cult of the solar hero Joshua
performed the sacred king drama at Gilgal, which in Greek is Galilee
(Jos. 12:23), so “Jesus of Galilee” could read “Joshua of Gilgal,”
and vice versa.
Like Jesus, Moses, Horus, Perseus and others, Joshua
was a “fatherless hero born of ‘waters’ (Maria).”
Furthermore, at 1 Corinthians 10:4 Paul claims that Christ “the
Rock” followed the Hebrews at the time of their exodus out of Egypt,
as did Joshua, according to the biblical myth.
As Dujardin says,
“The history of the ancient religion of Jesus goes back to the Stone
Age and is prior to the settlement of the Canaanite tribes of Palestine.”
The hypothesis that Joshua is the original Jesus—the origin of the
myths which blended in a composite pattern mistaken for real
history—solves many problems.... The association of Joshua with
conceptions of Logos, Son of God, and Messiah is present in the Pentateuch.
As noted, the association of Jesus with Joshua was admitted by early
Christian fathers, particularly when they were trying to give
scriptural authority to Jesus' alleged advent because the story was
In his 2nd Apology, Justin Martyr not only
acknowledges but insists upon the Jesus-Joshua identification:
JOSHUA WAS A FIGURE OF CHRIST.... Jesus (Joshua), as I have now
frequently remarked... when he was sent to spy out the land of
Canaan, was named by Moses Jesus (Joshua).
Why he did this you
neither ask, nor are at a loss about it, nor make strict inquiries.
Therefore Christ has escaped your notice; and though you read, you
understand not; and even now, though you hear that Jesus is our
Christ, you consider not that the name was bestowed on Him not
purposelessly nor by chance....
But since not only was his name
altered, but he was also appointed successor to Moses, being the
only one of his contemporaries who came out from Egypt, he led the
surviving people into the Holy Land; and as he, not Moses, led the
people into the Holy Land, and as he distributed it by lot to those
who entered along with him, so also Jesus the Christ will turn again
the dispersion of the people, and will distribute the good land to
each one, though not in the same manner...
For I have proved that
it was Jesus who appeared to and conversed with Moses, and Abraham,
and all the other patriarchs without exception, ministering to the
will of the Father; who also, I say, came to be born man by the
Virgin Mary and lives for ever.
Martyr also relates the passage in the book of Zechariah in which
Joshua, like Jesus, contends with the devil, comparing it with the
“mystery of Christ,” thus again virtually equating the Canaanite
Baal/Hebrew “prophet” with the Christian savior.
The great King David, from whose lineage Jesus, the “King of the
Jews,” was purported to have come, has been much exalted over the
centuries. However, even though according to the biblical tale David
was well known and “all the kings of the earth sought his presence”
(2 Chron. 9:23), there is no record of David in non-Hebraic sources,
such as the histories of Herodotus and Hesiod.
Nor are there any
archaeological finds to bear out his existence, despite recent
claims that a plaque was found bearing the words “house of David,”
because not only is the plaque’s language oblique but Bible
proponents, among others, have been known to salt sites and
As Roberta Harris says in The World of the
“Some of the best known Bible stories centre on King David,
yet neither history nor archaeology can substantiate any of them.”
Like so many other major characters in the Judeo-Christian bible,
David is non-historical.
Massey evinced that David,
“the eighth son
of Jesse, whose thirty captains were changed, in keeping with the
thirty days of the month, was the Hebrew form of the Kamite moon-god
Taht-Esmun, the eighth, one of whose titles is ‘the begetter of
Osiris, who was so called because the solar régime was subsequent to
the lunar dynasty...”
In other words, Osiris/Jesus
descends from TahtEsmun/David, “as it is written.”
As stated, even the well-loved biblical Psalms attributed to David
are not original but are Canaanite/Egyptian.
As Massey says:
The Psalms of David contain a substratum of the Muthoi, parables and
dark sayings of old, which belonged to the hermeneutical Books of
Taht, the Kamite Psalmist, and scribe of the gods. Those who were
not in possession of the gnosis searched these writings for
prophecy—after the fashion of Justin—upon which to establish the
These “dark sayings” and events were applied to Jesus, and their
presence in Psalms has been loudly touted as prophecy regarding “the
Savior.” In fact, many of the psalms are, as stated, a paean to the
sun, which is how they are applicable to the solar myth Jesus.
Massey also says:
Such sayings do not relate to prophecies that could be fulfilled in
any future human history. The transactions and utterances in the
psalm are personal to the speaker there and then, and not to any
future sufferer. They may be repeated, but the repetition cannot
constitute history any more than it fulfills prophecy. The
repetition of the words in character points to the reapplication of
the mythos in a narrative assumed to be historical.
Indeed, the fact that these sayings are repeated verbatim in the NT
demonstrates that they were copied from older texts, rather than
having been spoken by a historical character, unless he was a mere,
unoriginal scriptural parrot. If so, he would have been an Egyptian
In this regard, Potter reproduces the 14thcentury Egyptian
monotheist Akhenaten’s “Hymn to Aten” and states:
The reader who is familiar with the Psalms of David will have noted
the many parallelisms between this hymn and the 104th Psalm,
similarities in language and especially thought. The composition of
the Hebrew Psalm is assigned by scholars to the Greek Period of
Hebrew History, 332168 B.C.; hence, the Egyptian hymn is at least a
thousand years earlier. Even if David wrote the Psalm, as tradition
has it, the Egyptian composition is over three centuries older. If
anyone is guilty of plagiarism, it was not Akhenaten.
Of David and his psalms-singing,
... in a prominent position in the synagogue at Dura-Europus there
is a fresco depicting an Orpheus-like figure by some identified as
David;... a representation of the same scene occurs in a Jewish
catacomb at Rome; and... in various manuscripts of the Psalter
David is indeed portrayed as Orpheus.
As a mythical character, therefore, David cannot be the progenitor
of a historical Jesus.
Joseph, Father of Jesus
Jesus’s lineage thus cannot be traced through his “earthly” father,
Joseph, since Joseph was said to be a descendant of the mythical
David. Naturally, Joseph also has his counterpart in older
mythologies; for example, in the Egyptian version of the mythos, Seb
is the earthly father of Horus.
As Massey says:
Seb is the god of earth, god the father on earth, therefore the
especial father of the sungod in the earth.... Thus Seb is the
father of Osiris or Horus on earth. “My father is Seb... my bread
on earth (is) that of Seb.” In the same way, house and food for the
Christ are found by Joseph.... Seb and Meri (Nu) for earth and
heaven would afford two mythic originals for Joseph and Mary as
parents of the divine child... Aseb is the name of a typical seat
or throne of rule, in accordance with the Hebrew Iosheb, to sit, to
Joseph is called “son of Heli,” Heli or
Helios meaning the sun. The
name Joseph was also a title of a Hebrew priest.
As Walker states:
The priestly name of Joseph may have been bestowed upon Jewish
counterparts of the priests known in Egypt as “fathers of the god.”
The function of such holy men was to beget, on the temple maidens [almahs],
children who would be sacer: firstborn “sons of God” dedicated to
the service of the deity....
The mythic proliferation of Marys
and Josephs indicates that these were not personal names but
characters in the drama: The chosen husband who was yet not a
husband; the father-of-God who was yet not a father; the
virgin-mother-Goddess-priestess-queen who was also a kadesha or “Bride
of God.”... It can be shown that Joseph was indeed a divine name
in Israel. The Egyptian form was Djoser or Tcheser...
Hazelrigg further demonstrates the antiquity of “Joseph,” its
existence in other cultures and its deep astrological meaning:
And what of this espousal to Joseph, who was the Ioseppe of the
Phoenicians, and Ananda of the Hindus, the Zeus—husband of Leto and
the parent of Apollo—of the cosmogonic apologue? According to the
Gospels: “Joseph went up to Nazareth, which is in Galilee, and came
into the City of David, called Bethlehem, because he was of that
tribe, to be inscribed with Mary his wife, who was with child.”
here, in the City of David, or the celestial expanse, called
Bethlehem, the sixth constellation, Virgo, the harvest mansion, do
we discover Joseph (the constellation of Boötes, Ioseppe) and his
wife Mary with the child. Here is personified a constellation whose
very name (Ioseppe, the manger of Io, or the Moon) typifies the
humble place of accouchement of all the Virgin Mothers, and, as
related to Virgo, the genesis of all Messianic tradition.
In fact, the Greek name for the constellation of Bootes, or
??sef or Joseph. dccxxv
Mary, Mother of Jesus
As noted, the
Virgin Mother motif is found around the globe, long
before the Christian era, as was the name of the Goddess as “Meri,”
“Mari” or “Mary,” representing the sea (Mer/Mar), which was governed
by the Queen of Heaven, the moon. The Egyptian goddess Isis, for
instance, was also called “MataMeri” (“Mother Mary”) or just “Mari.”
As Walker says, “Mari” was the,
“basic name of the Goddess known to
the Chaldeans as Marratu, to the Jews as Marah, to the Persians as
Mariham, to the Christians as Mary... Semites worshipped an
androgynous combination of Goddess and God called MariEl (MaryGod),
corresponding to the Egyptian MeriRa, which combined the feminine
principle of water with the masculine principle of the sun.”
Walker also relates that “Mari” was a name for the sun goddess in
Like Mary, Isis was called “Queen of Heaven,” “Our Lady,” “Star of
the Sea” and “Mother of God.” The worship of Isis was spread
throughout the Greco-Roman world, from Egypt to Britain, and was very
popular in Rome during the first centuries before and after the
beginning of the Christian era.
In addition, Isis was the same as
Ishtar, who was also called Mari and was worshipped in the Hebrew
Ishtar’s priestesses apparently performed some version of the rite
each year in the temple of Jerusalem, where the virgin form of the
Goddess was called Mari, Mari-Anna, or Miriam, and her holy women
annually wailed for the sacrificial death of
It should also be noted that “the Savior” was at times considered
female; in other words, there have been female saviors as well. In
fact, the words Isis and Jesus come from the same root, meaning
“salvation” or “savior.” It is for this reason that Jesus is
depicted in Revelation as having “paps.” These multiple “paps” or
breasts reflect the “Mother of All Living,” who was also the “Great
Sow” with many teats.
The Goddess is also the Great Earth Mother, who was worshipped for
millennia around the world.
As Jackson relates:
The earliest important religious cult was the worship of the earth
in the image of the Great Mother. Mother Earth was the first great
terrestrial deity. Among other terrestrial cults were the worship of
plants and animals. At a later date Sky Worship developed, and
Father Sky became the consort of Mother Earth.
And Carpenter states:
There is ample evidence that one of the very earliest objects of
human worship was the Earth itself, conceived of as the fertile
Mother of all things.
Gaia or Gê (the earth) had temples and altars
in almost all the cities of Greece. Rhea or Cybele, sprung from the
Earth, was “mother of all the gods.” Demeter was honored far and
wide as the gracious patroness of the crops and vegetation.
of course, the same. Maia in the Indian mythology and Isis in the
Egyptian are forms of Nature and the Earth-spirit, represented as
female; and so forth.
The Earth, in these ancient cults, was the
mystic source of all life, and to it, as a propitiation, life of all
kinds was sacrificed.... It was, in a way, the most natural, as
it seems to have been the earliest and most spontaneous of cults—the
worship of the Earth-mother, the all-producing eternal source of life,
and on account of her never-failing ever-renewed fertility conceived
of as an immortal Virgin.
When the Father Sky cult usurped that of the Mother Earth, the
Goddess was demoted in a variety of ways, including eventually being
made into “Saint Mary.”
Walker also says,
“Biblical writers were
implacably opposed to any manifestation of the Goddess...”
So completely was she purged that there is no word for “Goddess” in
Like Mary, many other Christian “saints” are not historical
personages but are, in fact, the gods of other cultures, usurped and
demoted in order to unify the “Holy Roman Empire.”
Of this saint-making Walker says,
“The canon of saints was the Christian
technique for preserving the pagan polytheism that people wanted,
while pretending to worship only one God.”
Encyclopedia itself admits,
“It has indeed been said that the
‘Saints are the successors to the Gods.’ Instances have been cited
of pagan feasts becoming Christian; of pagan temples consecrated to
the worship of the true God; of statues of pagan Gods baptized and
transformed into Christian Saints.”
In the saint-making process, Christians took goddesses and gods such
as Artemis (St. Artemidos/Ursula) and Dionysus (St. Denis), among
many others, modified their names, and gave them great “historical”
exploits. In addition, the Pagan temples or “tombs” of gods were
converted into Christian churches. For example, the “tomb of
Dionysus/Bacchus” was transformed into the church of St.
As Higgins relates:
On the adoration of saints, Bochart says,
“They have transferred to
their saints all the equipage of the Pagan Gods: to St. Wolfgang the
hatchet, or hook of Saturn; to Moses the horns of Jupiter Hammon; to
St. Peter the keys of Janus. In brief, they have chased away all the
Gods out of the Pantheon at Rome, to place in their rooms all the
Saints, whose images they worship with like devotion as those of the
Pagan Gods sometimes were.
They dress them up in apparel, they crown
them with garlands of flowers, they carry them in procession, they
bow before them, they address their prayers to them, they make them
descend from heaven, they attribute to them miraculous virtues.”
All these phony saints were highly profitable, of course, as fake
relics such as their hair, fingers and other bones and body parts
As Walker states:
The church that slaughtered the heathen for worshipping false gods
was itself guilty of worshipping false saints—which, sometimes, were
even the same deities as those of the heathen.... The church
never lost sight of practical common sense on one point, however;
saints were leading sources of its income, thanks to the mandatory
pilgrimage system, donations, and tithes....
The multitudes of
phony or commercial saints are treated by modern Catholic scholars
with a rather amused tolerance, as if the saint-makers’ fantasies
held something of the same charm as tales invented by bright
children. It is rarely admitted that these fantasies were not
intended to charm but rather to defraud.
The saints were made up to
earn money for the church, and many of the madeup saints are still
doing so, for the church refrains from publicizing their spurious
origins lest such publicity might disappoint the faithful—which,
translated, means the donations might cease.
In one of the more obvious of Christian deceptions, in order to
convert followers of “Lord Buddha” the Church canonized him as “St.
Josaphat,” which represented a Christian corruption of the
Buddhistic title, “Bodhisat.”
As Wheless says:
... the holy Saint Josaphat, under which name and due to an odd
slip of inerrant inspiration, the great Lord Buddha, “The Light of
Asia,” was duly certified a Saint in the Roman Martyrology.
Medieval saint-makers adapted the story of Buddha’s early life to
their own fictions, calling the father of St. Josaphat “an Indian
king” who kept the young saint confined to prevent him from becoming
He was converted anyway, and produced the usual
assortment of miracles, some of them copied from incidents in the
life story of Buddha. St. Josaphat enjoyed great popularity in the
Middle Ages, an ironical development in a Europe that abhorred
Buddhism as the work of the devil.
The beloved St. Christopher is another “Christian saint” who is a
remake of an ancient god.
As Massey states:
The well-known story of Christopher shows that he was a survival of
Apheru, a name of SutAnup. It is related that he overtook the
child-Christ at the side of the river Jordan, and, lifting him on his
back, carried him across the waters.
But all the while the wondrous
child grew, and grew, and grew, as they went, and when they reached
the other side the child had grown into the god. The genesis of this
is the passage of the annual sun across the waters, which reaches
the other side as the full-grown divinity.
As has been demonstrated, many of the great biblical heroes have
been the “Baals” or gods of other cultures remade, as have been the
This religion-making business utilized every bit of
“technology” it could muster, building upon centuries of such
behavior and bringing it to perfection.
