The Da Vinci Code REVISITED

Watched a special on Dan Brown's Da Vinci Code last night. Once again, TV "authorities" pretended -- as they always do -- that there once lived an actual man named "Jesus Christ," a dude who supposedly started his own religion and died on a cross.

I hate to break it to ya, but JESUS CHRIST never existed. The eastern Roman empire around 30 A.D. was crawling with "self-styled Christs and Messiahs," all calling themselves "Son of God" and all prophesying the end of the world. The word "Christ" simply meant "annointed one." It was a title used by Attis, Adonis, Tammuz, Osiris and other pagan gods too many to mention, all of them totally ancient dudes by 30 A.D. "Jesus" or "Iasus" was the name of one of Demeter's consorts sacrificed by Zeus.

One more nail in the coffin: No one living in 30 A.D. ever mentioned Iasus Christos. As a matter of fact, no one mentions him until the 4th century A.D., when the first New Testament writings appear.

Don't get me wrong -- I love this Iasus dude. In my humble opinion, though, he was stolen from the Goddess.

For more, see Barbara Walker's profusely documented The Women's Encyclopedia.

"Stolen from the Goddess" - I love that! The irony is that if Jesus did exist, he was one of us. Everything he supposedly did shows exposure to the Egyptian Mysteries, and Mary Magdalene was obviously Isis to his Osiris.
