“Pharmacists must seek to raise people's awareness so that all human beings are protected from conception to natural death, and so that medicines truly play a therapeutic role”

In writings, Nero blames Christians for the fire that burned Rome in 64AD, only thirty years after the crucifixtion. Pliny the Younger in 110AD wrote Rome for advice on how to handle the 'Christians'. It would seem that they had the numbers causing concern for the Romans.

Men of Words

Whatever the type, there is a deep-seated craving common to almost all men of words which determines their attitude to the prevailing order. It is a craving for recognition; a craving for a clearly marked status above the common run of humanity.“Vanity,” said Napoleon,“made the Revolution; liberty was only a pretext.”

The myth was created so that the Romans would have someone to blame for catastrophies so that they could throw them to the lions?

What a pleasant way to phrase murder ... "overcome." Hitler used the term "the final solution."

Arabians. An obscure Arabian Christian sect of the 3rd century who maintained that the soul dies with the body but rejoins the body on the last day. This heresy was overcome by Origen (c. 185-c. 254).

NO! The myth was created and the story-tellers used it, as they still use it ... to make history appealing to their own senses.

For instance ... how could you believe you are saved it you didn't believe that Jesus is alive and waiting for you in heaven???

Without that myth, you would have nothing on which to bank.

Why is it that you mention Romans throwing Christians to the lions ... yet never once mention Catholics murdering Jews and all others who wouldn't believe as the Catholics dictated???

Is that a coincidence ... or is it favoritism to your own cult???

Never mind ... it's obvious that you only favor the history that appeals to your Catholicism and your own imagined salvation.

Because we were talking about the origin of the myth of Christ. Do you think the Romans made it up to have someone to lay the blame on and be able to entertain the audiencies with lions tearing apaart Christians?

Because the followers didn't know how to read or write, Catholic priests and monks were considered brilliant men of God by their followers.

Whether what was written was lies, was most often not an issue.

Impressions make believers out of those who are easy to impress.

Men of Words

The men of words are of diverse types. They can be priests, scribes, prophets, writers, artists, professors, students and intellectuals in general. Where, as in China, reading and writing is a difficult art, mere literacy can give one the status of a man of words. A similar situation prevailed in ancient Egypt, where the art of picture writing was the monopoly of a minority.

Do you know how silly you sound? Myths aren't created for history. That would be very farsighted for people who thought the earth was flat, don't you think?

It is pretty clear that Jesus was in fact real.

Lust of all types are forms of self-hypnosis.

The lust of convincing the self that the self KNOWS answers is the lust known as religion.

Mysteries can't possibly be known, or they would not BE mysteries.

Self-hypnosis concerning religion can be loads of high-flying fun, but when such lusts cause trouble, the games come at a very high cost indeed.

Myths were not created "for" history. Myths are part of history.

To believe you are special, you need the Jesus-myth for your salvation.

NO! I believe those who took the title of Christian were perceived as blatant trouble-makers, and that is why they were fed to the lions.

Christianity if very much to blame for this; the notion that salvation is free and may be attained by the idlest, the dullest, the stupidest is understandably very popular with persons who may be so described.

How can you say that Jesus was a myth? Do you believe that He wasn't responsible for what was later known as Christianity?
