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.


Such mythmaking 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 says,

“It existed 1,000 years before David and Solomon and was destroyed by the Akkadians in around 1600 BC.”


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., Jerusalem.


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).” dclxv


The tablets also contain the Canaanite creation and flood myths from which the very similar biblical versions were obviously plagiarized.


In 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 Palestine.


Dujardin further outlines the process by which “Baals” or “foreign” gods were changed into Hebrew patriarchs, kings, prophets and heroes:

  1. The ancient divinities of Palestine are transformed by the Bible into historical characters and turned into servants of Jahveh.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. Proscription was effected by devoting to abomination all the cults that offered resistance.

    1. Also by making impure such animals as had originally been ancient gods, by forbidding

    2. the eating of them, or by putting a curse on them

    3. 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 other places.


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.


As Churchward says:

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 Atrakhasis.

  • In Babylon, he was UtaNapishtim, the only mortal to become immortal.

  • 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.


The “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.


As Doane relates,

“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.”


Noah is, 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. dclxxi


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,

“was 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 Semitic 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 out.

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 of Alms.”


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, Graham says,

“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.


Furthermore, Graham states,

“The Babylonians also had their Abraham, only they spelt it Abarama. He was a farmer and mythological contemporary with Abraham.”


Hazelrigg 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”...


“Where, 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 of Terah”...


“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.”


These 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.


In addition, “Manes the lawgiver” took the stage in Egypt, and “Minos” was the Cretan reformer.

Jacolliot traces the original Moses to the Indian Manou:

“This name 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 life.


In fact,

“The name Moses is Egyptian and comes from mo, the Egyptian word for water, and uses, meaning saved from water, in this case, primordial.”


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 theme.


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 Egyptian...


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 his head.


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 and conservatives.


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 region.


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,

  1. the parallels between the Moses stories and older ones like that of Sargon

  2. the absence of any Egyptian account of such a great event as the Pentateuch asserts the Exodus to have been

  3. the attributing to Moses of so many laws that are known to have originated much later

  4. the correlative fact that great codes never suddenly appear fullborn but are slowly evolved

  5. the difficulties of fitting the slavery, the Exodus, and the conquest of Canaan into the known chronology of Egypt and Palestine

  6. the 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.”


He continues:

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 states,

“‘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 underworld.


The exodus out of Egypt refers to that out of Amenta, which,

“is 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.


The 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. dcci


This motif is also found in the Hawaiian and Hottentot versions of the Moses myth, prior to contact with outside cultures. dccii The crossing of the Red Sea is astronomical, expressly stated by Josephus to have occurred at the autumnal equinox, dcciii indicating its origin within the mythos.

Moreover, the famed Ten Commandments are simply a repetition of the Babylonian 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.


Churchward relates:

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 Cult.




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 and slaughter.


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.


Joshua is 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.


He 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 Double Equinox.


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. dccxi

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).” dccxiii

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.”


Robertson states:

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 being challenged.


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 fabricate artifacts.


As Roberta Harris says in The World of the Bible,

“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 history.


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.


As 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 parrot.


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, Gaster says:

... 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 be enthroned...


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.”


And 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 Adam, is ??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 Buddhism. dccxxvii

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 temple:

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 Tammuz.


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.


Ceres, 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 biblical Hebrew.



The Saints

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.”


The Catholic 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. Baccus. dccxxxiv


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 proliferated.


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.



St. Josaphat

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.


Walker elaborates:

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 a Christian.


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.



St. Christopher

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 Christian saints.


This religion-making business utilized every bit of “technology” it could muster, building upon centuries of such behavior and bringing it to perfection.
