Oh, fun! They’ve found a pile of bones labeled “Jesus” and “Jesus’ son Judas,” and now everyone’s all stewed about whether Jesus had a son.

Except Jesus is just a Fig Newton of everyone’s imagination. Which kinda kills the fun a little.

Jesus did not exist. Well, actually, to be exact, hundreds of Jesuses existed. It was A Thing around the year zero for everyone to go around saying they were sent from god to save the world.

The Jesus who was called Christos, ‘Anointed,’ took his title from Middle-Eastern savior-gods like Adonis and Tammuz, born of the Virgin Sea-goddess Aphrodite-Maria… ‘Iasus’ signified a healer or Therapeuta, as the Greeks called the Essenes, whose cult groups always included a man with the title of Christos.

“The literal meaning of the name was ‘healing moon-man,’ fitting the Hebrew version of Jesus as a son of Mary, the almah or ‘moon-maiden.””

For a dude who supposedly used miracles to heal all those giant crowds of sick people, isn’t it a might curious that no one in Jesus’ time ever mentioned him in any known writing?

And, “Healing the sick, raising the dead, casting out devils, handling poisonous serpents etc. were so commonplace that [the Roman scholar] Celsus scorned these ‘Christian’ miracles as ‘nothing more than the common works of those enchanters who, for a few oboli, will perform greater deeds in the midst of the Forum….” (Walker’s Woman’s Encyclopedia)

I've also come to the conclusion that the Jesus of the Bible never existed.

The man described in that book seems to be mishmash of dying-and-resurrected saviour-gods.

One of the most annoying things in my life was the realisation that I'd been pretty thoroughly conned by the society I grew up in to take the word of people who should 'know better' that Jesus of Nazareth was a real historical person.
A big pointy-hat-tip to the Atheist community for helping me out of that.

I think he was a real historic figure, but I wish he'd vetted his press kit.
