The Deist views and Secret Society occultism of the more renowned Founding Fathers is well recorded.


Yet new scholarship reveals that several of the primary Founding Fathers leaned heavily towards Mythicism - the notion that Jesus Christ was but the latest Savior God of a long tradition of rising/dying deities reworked by Mystery Religions since the dawn of time.


Beyond the Founding Fathers, evidence indicates that during revolutionary times Mythicism was embraced by many august Enlightenment philosophers, liberal clergy, visionary scientists, and even some of the most powerful rulers of Europe!


Delving deep into overlooked personal letters, historical data, public proclamations, and recorded interactions, we discover that, as America was given birth and Europe struggled to subdue Orthodox Christianity, a Mythicist brotherhood thrived whose ideas would influence egalitarian and democratic principles that would shape modern society.



Topics Discussed

  • Evidence pointing that one of the reasons Napoleon conquered Egypt was to search for evidence of the Jesus archetype in order to break the spine of Christianity

  • Understanding the great genius of Thomas Paine on all matters theological and philosophical

  • The life and times of Count Volney, the great traveling philosopher and mythicist who graced courts across the world and had the ear of emperors, kings, and several of the Founding Fathers

  • The mythicist leanings of such luminaries as Voltaire and Charles Darwin

  • How the mythicist view, which was growing even within American clergy, was squashed by the persecution of Protestant Orthodoxy

  • Understanding that the mythicist view was not an Enlightenment Age phenomena, but was a notion very much alive during early Christendom, especially with the Gnostics

  • And as always, an overview of the liberating power of mythology!
