A poem for Acharya
The sheeple goose-step with precision conformity carefully dodging reason and integrity minds numb to critical thought they seek acceptance and absolution from invisible men and mimicry of superstition By graceful deflection their faith is kept heads in sand logic bereft living to die yet not knowing why indoctrined in ignorance…Read More
Mithraism & Christianity
Here is a nifty quote from the New Schaff-Herzog Encyclopedia of Religious Knowledge (“Mithra, Mithraism,” VII, 419): “The birth of Mithra and of Christ were celebrated on the same day; tradition placed the birth of both in a cave; both regarded Sunday as sacred; in both the central figure was…Read More
Absurd vs Obvious explanations
The more unbelievable a thing is to be believed the more believed it will be. How awful. From “I can’t find my socks” being total bullshit to “an Invisible pink unicorn just ran his pointy horn through my buttocks” – hmm, I can see that one happening – is so…Read More
The 2010 Astrotheology Calendar | A Review
History has always been written by the victors. For nearly two thousand years, the victors in Western Civilization’s war for souls has been Christianity.

Nationalism is always tied to religion

Religion, a cynical view point

The ‘God Question’ Answered – Part 2 of 3 (Homocentric)
Continued from The ‘God Question’ Answered Part 1 of 3 Homocentric If one is to be intellectually honest then we must question everything. We must examine our own sacred-cows with vigor and passion in the same way we question the most vile and contemptuous doctrines of mankind. The thought that…Read More
The ‘God Question’ Answered – Part 1 of 3 (Geocentric)
Here are some thoughts on why people come to the conclusion that there must be a God. It is a product of my own deductive reasoning and I certainly invite all informed critique. But be advised, you better do your homework. We humans have an arrogance that stems from three…Read More
Missing Link found?
Very fascinating news on the paleontology front. A number of fossils, including one species definer named “Ardi,” have been discovered and examined to reveal that they represent possibly “the last common ancestor of humans and living apes.” Oldest “Human” Skeleton Found–Disproves “Missing Link” Scientists today announced the discovery of the…Read More
Buddhist influence on Christianity?
I find it intriguing that the thesis putting forth much of Christianity as having been borrowed from Buddhism is so popular that it merits its own entry in Wikipedia. And all these years, I’ve been (erroneously) told that I am the only person in history who takes these purported parallels…Read More

Hinduism in America
- Acharya S
I have to admit it, I have a soft spot for Hinduism, at least as it is practiced in the U.S. and as it appears in books in English that extoll its values, wonders and mysticism. That’s not to say that I do any Hindu practices or even hold any…Read More
The myth of Hebrew monotheism
- Acharya S
In my book The Christ Conspiracy: The Greatest Story Ever Sold, I have a chapter called “The Myth of Hebrew Monotheism,” which explains that, according to the Bible, the Hebrews/Israelites/Jews were always “whoring after other gods.” Unbelievably, rabid apologists attempting to debunk my entire body of work have even homed…Read More
Christian World Domination?
The executive director of the “influential” Coral Ridge Ministries, whose pastor is Rev. D.
