Atheism is a scourge on humanity. Atheism works the same magic wherever it rules in the world, regardless of skin color or clime. Ethiopia was ruled for a murderous interlude by the Marxist Derg, with predictably deadly results. The Red Terror claimed thousands of victims, including the Patriarch of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church, Abuna Theophilos, in 1977. State atheism is Murder Incorporated on steroids and it is infested with people that have the same attitude you do.

Richard Carrierís Review of Bart Ehrmanís Did Jesus Exist?
"Having completed and fully annotated Ehrmanís new book Did Jesus Exist? The Historical Argument for Jesus of Nazareth, I can officially say it is filled with factual errors, logical fallacies, and badly worded arguments. Moreover, it completely fails at its one explicit task: to effectively critique the arguments for Jesus being a mythical person. Lousy with errors and failing even at the one useful thing it could have done, this is not a book I can recommend.
...
It is for all the reasons documented in this article (which are again just a sample of many other errors of like kind, from false claims, to illogical arguments, to self-contradictions, to misrepresentations of his opponents, to errors of omission), especially this bookís complete failure to interact with even a single complete theory of mythicism (which alone renders the book useless, even were it free of error), that I have no choice but to condemn this thing as being nothing more than a sad murder of electrons and trees."

Yeah i know them two may be feuding. So far Ehrman is respectful to Carrier who is the only academic in relevant field (PH. D. in classics from Columbia university, puts him in the ballpark, i would say Ehrman is more qualified) who is a Christ Myther and i certainly do not agree with Ehrman on most things but he is a scholar with 30+ years experience. He is an expert in the field. When you go to the dentist do you expect an expert dentst? If you have a house built do you go to your neighbor or an architect or your neighbor? My hat is off to you for bring up Carrier.

As a pathetically brainwashed godbot without a mind of your own, it's YOU who's making a complete ass of yourself, but you're too retarded to understand. The universe and life on earth had entirely natural origins and our planet was never inhabited by the son of a mythical character from a plagiarized work of fiction.

If you're going to read Barker's book then do so with an open mind and cease posting here. You'll learn how an evangelical preacher grew up and left the Dark Ages behind. You should also watch the following video and learn about the indoctrination tactics used to make you a world class ignoramus, kid.

You'll simply waste your absolutely worthless life with the intellectual capacity of a mentally retarded child because you'd rather be a slave to Dark Ages dogma than accept your own mortality like a rational adult.

You're a typical Christian cultist. You're a gutless, spineless, weak-willed, lily-livered and death-denying coward and a menace to society, punk.

Wrong! Christian revisionist history isn't history. A theist, such as you, has been brainwashed to mindlessly adhere to a dogma-based indoctrination system. An anti-theist is opposed to all dogma-based indoctrination systems.

There's never been a need for the term atheist and anti-theism is the only humane position to hold in regards to theistic brainwashing. It's inevitable that there will be an international ban on theistic brainwashing which produces ignorant, cowardly and bigoted assholes like you with out any socially redeemable qualities, punk.

Once again, you demonstrate the blind hypocrisy of the religiously retarded imbecilic sociopathic godbot. Numerous studies have confirmed the common sense observation that religious brainwashing retards intellectual development.

The world's most intelligent and educated people are the least religious. The world's least intelligent and uneducated are the most religious.

The godbot, such as you, who's so pathetically brainwashed to be incapable of grasping historical and scientific evidence in contradiction to their programming is a national embarrassment and an outright disgrace to the human race that should be institutionalized for the rest of their absolutely worthless lives, punk.

ok ok ok. GOD says man started with adam. and the earth was made in 7 days. So that starting point seems to have started within ten thousand years, but science proves the earth and people have been around for much longer. So what will you believe. GODS word to trust in. or will you say no bible it has been proven what you say doesnt add up. this is the whole point. will you trust in god who we cant understand or comprehend how he was never born and had no begining.or will you believe in the world.

I'm still waiting on an actual citation about this Horus parallel. What Egyptian text was it in specifically?

Nobody can seem to cite an Egyptian text just copy and paste a website and be like "here, you find it!" PAMB, are you read to admit Murdock is wrong about Horus? Moreso to yourself.

''Mythicists of this ilk (Murdock) should not be surprised when their views are not taken seriously be real scholars, that their books are not reviewed in scholary journals, mentioned by experts in the field, or even read by them. The book is filled with so many factual errors and outlandish assertions that it is hard to believe that the author is serious. If she is serious, it is hard to believe that she has ever encountered anything resembling historical acholarship.

Her 'research' appears to have involved reading a number of non scholary books that say the same thing she is about to say and then quoting them. One looks in vain for citation of a primary ancient source, and quoting from real experts (Elaine Pagels, chiefly) are ripped from their context and misconstrued.''

You further humiliated yourself by making a false allegation that Murdock doesn't use primary sources when there's a massive amount in Christ in Egypt. In fact, there are nearly 2,400 specific citations and you'll have to gather the courage to read her historic 600 page book which erases any and all doubts that the Jesus myth was heavily influenced by Egyptian mythology. Of course, we all know you're a death-denying coward who'd rather make a complete ass of yourself on international forum slandering the author of the most meticulously researched book on the Horus-Jesus Connection, kid.

Everyone who reads Murdock's Christ in Egypt should understand that the sources she cites are anything but marginal or questionable. In fact, her sources are entirely within the Egyptology mainstream and many are, in fact, revered, and deservedly so, within the community of Egyptologists.

The fact that these sources are mainstream, highly respected, or even seminal does not, of course, make them right about the origins of the Christ story. However, it does make them, and Murdock's thesis in which she incorporates their work, impossible to dismiss out of hand.

Read her book. Criticize it if you believe it deserves criticism. But to dismiss it or get apoplectic about her thesis simply because it shocks you is plainly foolish.

--Kenneth L. Feder, PhD, Frauds, Myths and Mysteries

I find myself in full agreement with Acharya S/D.M. Murdock: "we assert that Christianity constitutes Gnosticism historicized and Judaized, likewise representing a synthesis of Egyptian, Jewish and Greek religion and mythology, among others [including Buddhism, via King Asoka's missionaries] from around the 'known world'". "Christianity is largely the product of Egyptian religion being Judaized and historicized".

PAMB, I ask that you cite the Egyptian text because in order for you to do so you will run into a dead end amd have to read the Egyptian texts yourself. I was hoping you would read them and learn the real Horus story make the discovery yourself that his story is not what Ms. Murdock claims it to be. You tell us that we have been lied to and present Ms. Murdock's claims as evidence. We have already examined Ms. Murdock's claims and after comparing them to original sources we find her claims to be false. Based on this knowledge if you have been lied to and evidence were given to you to check it wouldn't you want to know if the person in question did deceive you.

Here are links to the major Egyptian texts.

Book of the Dead

Pyramid Texts

Coffin texts

Book of the Netherworld

Book of Gates

More rantings from the mentally challenged ass-bot.

The father of the Big Bang Theory is Georges Lemaitre.
He conceived of the Space-Atom he nicknamed the Cosmic Egg exploding at the moment of creation. His theory was derisively called the Big Bang by Fred Hoyle because he and other scientists felt it was a reminder of Genesis and "let there be light." Did I mention Georges Lemaitre was a Roman Catholic priest?

So let's try that again without your redundant psycho babble caused by a lack of any oxygen at birth. What caused the Big Bang?
Take your time.
