Post Better Resources?


Both Caesar and Jesus existed. And so did Cleopatra.
Had she realized her goals our supreme being may have
been feminine.

Jesus lived and died. He was born c. 7 b.c. and became
a partaker in zealous activities. He was crucified.
He spent six hours on the cross. He was placed (still
breathing) in a cave located less than twenty-five
miles from what is now known as Jerusalem. The guards
were not Roman soldiers. His legs were not broken and
his feet were not pierced. The wound in his side was
superficial and he bled like someone with a heartbeat
and not like some one in rigor mortis. A bribe
was paid to both Herod Agrippa I and to Pilate to allow
Jesus to live. The Damascus that Jesus preached at was
the same locale in which he was crucified. St. Paul
became an Apostle and rode the bandwagon.

One has to read Scripture in the frame of mind that
the Hebrew solar system was pop, mom, and the boys.
The "Star of Bethlehem" was Joseph. The earthquakes
are high priests and thunder and lightning are the
same priests. Death is spiritual. Simon Magus had
numerous pseudo-names, and, as being an opponent of
St. Paul ... the Book of Acts went to great extremes
killing this Coppersmith named Ananias. Simon Magus
was kind of like the Canaanites in the Old Testament,
how many times were they exterminated only to
reappear?

Flavius Josephus? He is the teacher. The Church did
not edit his texts (I do not think they edited
any of his writings) because in his attempt to delude
us (non-Jews) he deluded the church. Josephus tells
us that they were two Egypt's and that Noah, Moses,
and Jacob were the same person. Josephus tells us that
Hiram, the king of Tyre, was actually a prince named
Hyrcanus who took his own life because he knew that
he was going to be captured and tortured. Josephus
tells us that king Herod Agrippa was murdered by poison
and that he was wearing the sacred garment of the
priests of old, and, this same sacred garment was
the one Jesus was wearing before the crucifixion.
(Josephus also tells us that Alexander the Great
took his own life).

Josephus' writings have survived only because he
deluded fundies. He sure bewildered William
Whiston! (one of my heroes, Whiston was a honest
man).

Is there more history written about Julius Caesar.
Putting it bluntly ... learn to read! Too many
atheists read fundamentally.

Thanks, offa

At least Nomad and Layman can make their points coherently. I have no idea what to make of this.

Some of this I recognize from Sir Laurence Gardner's book on the Dead Sea Scrolls & the Grail Legends, These are Essene code words e.g.
walk on water, to Baptize in the river
Bossom of Abraham/Heaven, Qumran
A cloud. Essene Priest as in A cloud took Jesus to Heaven.
Raise the dead, to bring someone back to or into the Essene Cult.

Offa, your post treats the New Testament like fundamentalists treat Revelation. They are totally different genres.

You certainly are giving Barbara Theiring and "The Bible Code" bunch a run for their money though. I can just see the blurbs on the paperback edition of the book you could write about all of this nonsense.
