I never said 20th/21st century authors were bullshitters, I said 20th/21st century bullshitters. People were much smarter and less confused in decades and centuries prior. After 2000 years we have some filthy scumbags, the type of people you wouldn't even want to shake hands, writing books that Jesus is a sun deity, Christian values are an invention of the elites, and whatever other self-hating garbage the goyim are willing to accept. More than evidence, claims are required to make sense. Too bad most people don't know the meaning of critical thought. These authors are connecting dots where there are none to be connected and making making a healthy profit off of it. Gullible idiots are accepting the ridiculous conclusions of these so called experts. This new age crowd is especially popular with women, and we all know they are terrible judgers of character and love pseudo-intellectualism.

Gnosticism didn't just appear. It's very old. You're telling me they couldn't connect the "dots" (symbolism) back then? They had to wait until the age of the internet to figure Jesus never existed? That must mean... "D.M. Murdock" is not only the smartest women but the smartest person that ever lived. She even surpassed all those clever noble-prize winning Ashkenazi Jews. Because the Jews tried every tactic possible in their own texts to discredit Jesus. If only they had figured out he never existed! But then who is it they had killed and whose murder have they gloated over for 2000 years?
I never believed the story of "Israel" and of the Jews. It always smacked of utter bullshit. But because the Jewish lies are in the interest of the structure which currently rules the world, any views that go against these lies are suppressed. While quite the opposite is true for stories that detract from Christian values. They have had to wait a long time... until the population so disillusioned and more importantly dumbed down, that they will be susceptible to the likes of Zeitgeist, and the crap books you mentioned.

2. Christ in Egypt: The Horus-Jesus Connection by D.M. Murdock)
First of all, put aside any preconceived notions of Christ existing or not existing, even if that means putting aside your instinct which is actually a persons only path to truth. Before reading a word any "academic" writes, simply ask yourself some logical questions. Where is the credibility in these books? You can establish that by doing a minimal amount of background research. All you have to do is look into what cesspool the author in question crawled out of. Where is their money coming from?? What are their allegiances? It's not hard in most cases, we're not talking about a riddle that will take you a year to figure out. We're talking about 1 degree of separation from an organization politically motivated to discredit __insert target here__. When you see a Zionists writing books about Muslims, should you not get suspicious? When you see Satanists writing books about Christ, you shouldn't need me to tell you there is a conflict of interests. Look into D.M. Murdock aka Acharya S before simply taking her word for it. It's that simple.
What are you talking about odbo? DM Murdock (aka Acharya S) wrote a scholarly book backed by references and citations. They are all in the back of her book. Have you even really read her book "The Christ Conspiracy: The Greatest Story Ever Sold"? I've corresponded with her, and she is a very smart woman and researcher. She writes what she believes. What more do you want? Are you claiming she's part of a conspiracy? lol
I don't know if Jesus really existed or not. But the historical evidence for him isn't that strong. Outside of the Bible, there is little historical verification for his existence. The historians who wrote about him (e.g. Josephus) didn't live at the same time he did, and never met him. They were just going off what they heard.
So such authors have a valid argument. But of course, you can't prove that someone didn't exist, so it's an inconclusive argument.
To OTA: Nothing you say has any evidence. The Bible was a collection of 66 books written by humans. It is not evidence of anything. It contains false prophecies, contradictions, mistakes, false facts, horrible cruelties, places zero value on human freedom, is totally 100 percent anti-freedom, has no value on human life, and is all about obedience, not freethinking. You can't use the Bible to prove anything. Those who try to are totally brainwashed fundamentalist fanatics whose reason has been hijacked.
This guy I listen to has totally debunked Christianity and the Bible.
