Many of The United States Founding Fathers Were Not Christians.  America not founded on the Christian religion.

It’s in a treaty.

From: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Treaty_of_Tripoli

…”receiving ratification unanimously from the U.S. Senate on June 7, 1797 and signed by Adams, taking effect as the law of the land on June 10, 1797.

The Treaty is much discussed in the 21st century because of the text of article 11, as ratified by the Senate:

As the Government of the United States of America is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion; as it has in itself no character of enmity against the laws, religion, or tranquility, of Mussulmen; and, as the said States never entered into any war, or act of hostility against any Mahometan nation, it is declared by the parties, that no pretext arising from religious opinions, shall ever produce an interruption of the harmony existing between the two countries.”

Quotations from Founders of the United States:

 “The fable of Christ and his twelve apostles…is a parody of the sun and the twelve signs of the Zodiac, copied from the ancient religions of the Eastern world…. Every thing told of Christ has reference to the sun. His reported resurrection is at sunrise, and that on the first day of the week; that is, on the day anciently dedicated to the sun, and from thence called Sunday…”  

–Thomas PaineThe Complete Religious and Theological Works of Thomas Paine (382) 
“…the day will come when the mystical generation of Jesus, by the supreme being as his father in the womb of a virgin will be classed with the fable of the generation of Minerva in the brain of Jupiter.”
–Thomas JeffersonThe Adams-Jefferson Letters (594)
 
“I do not believe in the creed professed by the Jewish Church, by the Roman Church, by the Greek Church, by the Turkish Church, by the Protestant Church, nor by any church that I know of.  My own mind is my own Church” —Thomas Paine

More founders’  Quotes:

John Adams:

Late in life he wrote: “Twenty times in the course of my late reading, have I been upon the point of breaking out, “This would be the best of all possible worlds, if there were no religion in it!”

James Madison:  

Fourth president and father of the Constitution, was not religious in any conventional sense. “Religious bondage shackles and debilitates the mind and unfits it for every noble enterprise.” 

Benjamin Franklin:

As to Jesus of Nazareth…. I have, with most of the present dissenters in England, some doubts as to his Divinity

Ethan Allen, whose capture of Fort Ticonderoga while commanding the Green Mountain Boys helped inspire Congress and the country to pursue the War of Independence, said, “That Jesus Christ was not God is evidence from his own words.” In the same book, Allen noted that he was generally “denominated a Deist, the reality of which I never disputed, being conscious that I am no Christian.” When Allen married Fanny Buchanan, he stopped his own wedding ceremony when the judge asked him if he promised “to live with Fanny Buchanan agreeable to the laws of God.” Allen refused to answer until the judge agreed that the God referred to was the God of Nature, and the laws those “written in the great book of nature.”

HOW CHRISTIANITY WAS INVENTED

Christianity is based upon a myth (The Persian saviour god Mithra), which was based on other similar myths, all the way back to Chrishna of India (a mythical god that was “crucified” around 1200 B.C.). There were 16 mythical crucifixions before Christ. The belief in the crucifixion of Gods was prevalent in various oriental or heathen countries long prior to the reported crucifixion of Christ.  Of the 16 crucifixions, most were born of a virgin, and about half were born on December 25th.

What follows was extracted from: http://www.bibliotecapleyades.net/biblianazar/esp_biblianazar_40.htm :

“What the Church doesn’t want you to know

It has often been emphasized that Christianity is unlike any other religion, for it stands or falls by certain events which are alleged to have occurred during a short period of time some 20 centuries ago. Those stories are presented in the New Testament, and as new evidence is revealed it will become clear that they do not represent historical realities.

The Church agrees, saying:

“Our documentary sources of knowledge about the origins of Christianity and its earliest development are chiefly the New Testament Scriptures, the authenticity of which we must, to a great extent, take for granted.”

(Catholic Encyclopedia, Farley ed., vol. iii, p. 712)

The Church makes extraordinary admissions about its New Testament. For example, when discussing the origin of those writings,  “the most distinguished body of academic opinion ever assembled” (Catholic Encyclopedias, Preface) admits that the Gospels “do not go back to the first century of the Christian era”

(Catholic Encyclopedia, Farley ed., vol. vi, p. 137, pp. 655-6).

This statement conflicts with priesthood assertions that the earliest Gospels were progressively written during the decades following the death of the Gospel (sic) Jesus Christ.  In a remarkable aside, the Church further admits that, “the earliest of the extant manuscripts [of the New Testament], it is true, do not date back beyond the middle of the fourth century AD” — (Catholic Encyclopedia, op. cit., pp. 656-7).

That is some 350 years after the time the Church claims that a Jesus Christ walked the sands of Palestine, and here the true story of Christian origins slips into one of the biggest black holes in history. There is, however, a reason why there were no New Testaments until the fourth century: they were not written until then, and here we find evidence of the greatest misrepresentation of all time.

It was British-born Flavius Constantinus (Constantine, originally Custennyn or Custennin) (272-337) who authorized the compilation of the writings now called the New Testament. After the death of his father in 306, Constantine became King of Britain, Gaul and Spain, and then, after a series of victorious battles, Emperor of the Roman Empire. Christian historians give little or no hint of the turmoil of the times and suspend Constantine in the air, free of all human events happening around him. In truth, one of Constantine’s main problems was the uncontrollable disorder amongst presbyters and their belief in numerous gods.

The majority of modern-day Christian writers suppress the truth about the development of their religion and conceal Constantine’s efforts to curb the disreputable character of the presbyters who are now called “Church Fathers” (Catholic Encyclopedia, Farley ed., vol. xiv, pp. 370-1).

Originally Christianity is an adaptation of Mithraism welded with the Druidic principles of the Culdees, Egyptian sun worship (the pre-Christian Book of Revelation was originally called The Mysteries of Osiris and Isis ), Greek philosophy and various aspects of Hinduism(via Alexander the Great).

PUBLISH OR BE DAMNED THE NEW TESTAMONIES AND THE BOOK BURNING BEGINS AND RELIGIOUS INTOLERANCE INSTITUTIONALIZED

(Note: Eusebius –Bishop of Caesarea in Palestine “Father of Church History“- , attended the Council of Nicaea in 325 A.D. and was a friend of Emperor Constantine, who also attended and made the keynote speech– Samuel Butler,  Author).

Constantine instructed Eusebius to organize the compilation of a uniform collection of new writings developed from primary aspects of the religious texts submitted at the council.  Eusebius has been described as  follows:  Jacob Burckhardt (19th century cultural historian) dismissed Eusebius as “the first thoroughly dishonest historian of antiquity”. He has been also described as ” a political theologian”. He favored doctoring his history in his own words to “be useful first to ourselves and afterwards to posterity”. Edward Gibbon (18th century historian-“The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire”) dismissed his testimony on the number of martyrs and impugned his honesty (To be clear on this matter, I say don’t trust Eusebius’s reports of the Apostles or how the Apostles died, and be suspicious of all of his writings.)
– Author Samuel Butler
)

Eusebius then arranged for scribes to produce fifty sumptuous copies to be written on parchment in a legible manner, and in a convenient portable form, by professional scribes thoroughly accomplished in their art (ibid.). These orders, said Eusebius, were followed by the immediate execution of the work itself we sent him [Constantine] magnificently and elaborately bound volumes of three-fold and four-fold forms (Life of Constantine, vol. iv, p.36). They were the New Testimonies, and this is the first mention (c. 331) of the New Testament in the historical record. With his instructions fulfilled, Constantine then decreed that the New Testimonies would thereafter be called the word of the Roman Saviour God (Life of Constantine, vol. iii, p. 29) and official to all presbyters sermonising in the Roman Empire. He then ordered earlier presbyterial manuscripts and the records of the council burnt and declared that any man found concealing writings should be stricken off from his shoulders (beheaded)

NONE OF THESE 50 NEW TESTAMENTS EXIST TODAY OR ARE ADMITTED TO EXISTING!

THIS NEW TESTAMENT WAS THE OFFICIAL BOOK OF THE NEW UNIFIED RELIGION OF CONSTANTINE NOT THE BIBLE!  ALL OTHER BOOKS TO BE BURNED ,THAT WOULD INCLUDE THE TORAH/OLD TESTAMENT IT INCLUDED BURNING THE GREAT LIBRARY OF ALEXANDRIA IN EGYPT 391 AD

In 391AD, Christian Emperor Theodosius I ordered the destruction of all pagan (“heathen” they were called) temples. The Christian Patriarch Theophilus of Alexandria (Egypt) complied with this request. Seizing this opportunity, Theophilus exerted himself to the utmost to expose the pagan mysteries to contempt, the Serapeum also he showed full of extravagant superstitions, the commander-in-chief of the troops in Egypt, assisted Theophilus in demolishing the heathen temples then he destroyed the Serapeum. -Historia Ecclesiastica

The Serapeum housed the Great Library of Alexandria  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Library_of_alexandria

Why there are no records of Jesus Christ

It is not possible to find in any legitimate religious or historical writings compiled between the beginning of the first century and well into the fourth century any reference to Jesus Christ and the spectacular events that the Church says accompanied his life.

This confirmation comes from Frederic Farrar (1831-1903) of Trinity College, Cambridge:

“It is amazing that history has not embalmed for us even one certain or definite saying or circumstance in the life of the Saviour of mankind … there is no statement in all history that says anyone saw Jesus or talked with him. Nothing in history is more astonishing than the silence of contemporary writers about events relayed in the four Gospels.” (The Life of Christ, Frederic W. Farrar, Cassell, London, 1874)

This situation arises from a conflict between history and New Testament narratives. Dr Tischendorf made this comment: “We must frankly admit that we have no source of information with respect to the life of Jesus Christ other than ecclesiastic writings assembled during the fourth century.” (Codex Sinaiticus, Dr Constantin von Tischendorf, British Library, London)

There is an explanation for those hundreds of years of silence: the construct of Christianity did not begin until after the first quarter of the fourth century, and that is why Pope Leo X (d. 1521)  called Christ a “fable” (Cardinal Bembo: His Letters…, op. cit.),  and later Pope Paul III expressed similar sentiments, saying that there  was no valid document to demonstrate the existence of Christ.  He confessed that Jesus never existed, adding that he was no other than the sun, adored in its Mithraic sect ..”

Yes, but what about Tacitus,  Roman Historian,  who wrote about the persecutions of the early “Christians”?

Regarding Tacitus, (Senator and Historian of the Roman Empire) these writings supporting the persecution were mysteriously found in the 15th century in the forests of Germany, following a reward offered by Leo X for old writings,  and following a history of forgeries in Catholicism:

In any case, there has been serious questions about the integrity of the famous passage about Christians.

From: http://www.earlychristianwritings.com/tacitus.html

Gordon Stein denied the authenticity of this passage, arguing:

(1) there is no corroborating evidence that Nero persecuted the Christians
(2) there was not a multitude of Christians in Rome at that date (3) Christian was not a common term in the first century
(4) Nero was indifferent to various religions in his city
(5) Nero did not start the fire in Rome
(6) Tacitus does not use the name Jesus
(7) Tacitus assumes his readers know Pontius Pilate

Yes, but what about Josephus?

His reference to Jesus in Testimonium Flavianum has been claimed as a later addition, not questioning the authenticity of the main work.

See: http://www.truthbeknown.com/josephus.htm

Yes, but what about Pliny the Younger’s letter to Emperor Trajan 112 AD (Pliny not a contemporary of Jesus, and he never mentions “Jesus”)?  Pliny the Younger (c. 61 – c. 112), the provincial governor of Pontus and Bithynia, wrote to Emperor Trajan c. 112 concerning how to deal with Christians, who refused to  worship the emperor, and instead worshiped “Christus”.  What about that?

Charles Guignebert, who does not doubt that Jesus of the Gospels lived in Gallilee in the 1st century, nevertheless dismisses this letter as acceptable historical evidence:  “Only the most robust credulity could reckon this assertion as admissible evidence for the historicity of Jesus” – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Historicity_of_Jesus

Why did Paul say that women should not speak in Church?

Why did St. Paul say women should not speak in church and be submissive?

King James Bible 1 Corinthians 14:34

“Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but [they are commanded] to be under obedience, as also saith the law. “

“As in all the congregations of the saints, women should remain silent in the churches. They are not allowed to speak, but must be in submission, as the Law says. If they want to inquire about something, they should ask their own husbands at home; for it is disgraceful for a woman to speak in the church. Did the word of God originate with you? Or are you the only people it has reached?” (1 Cor. 14:33b-36 NIV).

Why did St Paul say that? Why?

The short answer: HE DIDN’T. Someone pretending  to be Paul said that, lying. From March 27, 2011 Daily Mail (UK) See http://tinyurl.com/4fumoaj

They Murdered the Pope!

by Samuel Butler on Thursday, March 31, 2011 at 9:25am

THEY MURDERED THE POPE!

By Samuel Butler 3/31/11

When I was a commercial real estate broker, I was involved in a large land transaction, later completed on a property in Marin County, California.

My interested party in the purchase was Bruce Connor, associated with the Howard S. Wright Corporation of Seattle, a huge and important developer. They built the Space Needle in Seattle.

Bruce told me the following story. He went to Rome with a friend, and while he was there, his friend went to the Vatican, where his friend had a personal friend in the Holy See, which acts and speaks for the whole Catholic Church. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Holy_See .

When Connor’s friend came back from the Holy See, he told my client Connor, “THEY MURDERED THE POPE!”. Connor was told that there was no autopsy, no time of death, and a deep mystery.

His friend told Connor that the Pope couldn’t handle the job, and there is only one way to go if you are Pope and can’t handle the job. The Pope only served as Pope for 33 days.  It was that simple. He couldn’t handle the job, and he couldn’t resign. At that time, 1978, the Pope was supposedly infallible on dogmatic statements. It would be strange to have an “infallible” Pope resign.

The Pope was John Paul I. He lasted only 33 days. He chose the first double name in the history of the papacy, the first double name in the history of the papacy,

I later did research on this and found that this “humble” and “smiling” Pope , as he was known from Venice, far from being a pushover for the hierarchy of the Church, wanted to:

  1. Fire the Cardinal of Chicago
  2. Re-open birth control
  3. Personally investigate the Vatican Bank.

It was not to be.

He was poisoned.
1. There was no time of death stated.
2. There was no autopsy.
3. There still is no death certificate to this day.

There were 6 suspects to the murder.

One was Roberto Calvi,  Chairman of the “Vatican Bank”, and known as “God’s Banker”, and one was Paul Marcinkus http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paul_Marcinkus , who was President of the ” Vatican Bank” at the time of the Pope’s mysterious death. (Another case of “don’t mess with banksters”). It turned up later that 1.3 billion dollars vanished in the later collapse of  that bank.  It ended up that five of the 6 suspects died under mysterious circumstances.  For example, Roberto Calvi committed suicide in London, after missing from Milan, Italy for 9 days, by going to the Blackfiars Bridge in London, climbing to the underneath of it and putting a rope around his neck to hang himself!

The sole survivor of the six suspects after a period of time turned out to be coincidentally enough, the head of the Vatican bank, Paul Marcinkus, who died in Sun City, Arizona  on February 20, 2006.

There is a book about this, the murder of this Pope, John Paul I, I found in my research. It’s called “In God’s Name”, by David Yallop, a world-wide best seller.

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Gods-Name-Investigation-into-Murder/dp/1845294963

The Godfather series is disguised history. “Godfather I” delved into Frank Sinatra being pushed by threats (offer that couldn’t be refused) (remember the dead horse in the bed of the movie kingpin?),  to the maker of “From Here to Eternity” to allow a singer a part in the movie to be played by Sinatra (a part “he was made for”, Maggio).

Godfather III, shows the Pope (played by a character even taking the correct name, John Paul I) being poisoned, and the Mafia boss, played by Al Pacino,  failing to prevent it.) Not too “disguised” history, even going into the banking corruption, which was real, and that is what the real John Paul I wanted to personally investigate.

Muhammad also died of being poisoned (by a Jewish woman).  Intrigue and politics and power plays are not so unusual in the Church.  One time there were 3 popes! Yes, three at the same time (sometimes the “other Popes” were called “Anti-Popes”.)  If you want to get confused and amazed, read here:

Quiz:  Who said this?: “But those enemies of mine who did not want me to be king over them–bring them here and kill them in front of me.”

Who? Answer: Jesus, in a parable he told about a mean King : Luke 19.27

Religion is seen by normal people as true, by wise people as false,  and by rulers as useful. Hitler and Mussolini were Catholics, as were Ferdinand and Isabella of Spain under whose reign we had TorquemadaGrand Inquisitor, 1483-1498, and Ferdinand and Isabella’s royal Edict of Expulsionagainst the Jews of Spain  (March 31, 1492). It ordered all Jews of whatever age to leave the kingdom by the last day of July.

News Item: 3/4/11 : : Brigham Young University’s star basketball player, Brandon Davies, is dismissed from the team for having premarital sex, but Brigham Young , who the University is named after, and who was President of the Church for 30 years, “had 55 wives. One was 15 years old. Young had 57 children by 16 of his wives”. Quote is from my book: http://tinyurl.com/4bcvmem .A list of his 55 wives is in Wikipedia (from Church Records) here: http://tinyurl.com/25ea22e -Samuel Butler, Author.

One more thing, also from the book.  Joseph Smith, the founder of the Mormon movement,  had at least 24 wives. One was 14 years old, and after the marriage considered herself as an abused child. Here is a list of his wives from official church records:
http://www.familysearch.org/Eng/Search/AF/individual_record.asp?recid=7762167&lds=0

Sam, Searcher for truth, regardless of wherever the chips may fall. 

WHO WAS THIS?
Holes pierced in his feet … a hole in the top of one foot, just above the toes, where the nail was inserted in the act of crucifixion.  Savior __________ atoned for the sins of a grief-stricken world by “pouring out his blood as a propitiatory offering” while stretched upon the cross.But Before the crucifixion :  “he soon became surrounded by many earnest followers, and the people in vast multitudes followed him, crying aloud, ‘This is indeed the Redeemer promised to our fathers.'” His pathway was thickly strewn with miracles, which consisted in healing the sick, curing lepers, restoring the dumb, deaf and the blind, raising the dead, aiding the weak, comforting the sorrow-stricken, relieving the oppressed, casting out devils, etc. He come not ostensibly to destroy the previous religion, but to purify it of its impurities, and to preach a better doctrine. He came, as he declared, “to reject evil and restore the reign of good, and redeem man from the consequences of the fall, and deliver the oppressed earth from its load of sin and suffering.” His disciples believed him to be God himself, and millions worshiped him  ….  There is more:
1. His miraculous birth by a virgin. 2. The mother and child being visited by shepherds, wise men and the angelic host, who joyously sang, “In thy delivery, O favored among women, all nations shall have cause to exult.” 3. The edict of the tyrant ruler ______, ordering all the first born to be put to death. 4. The miraculous escape of the mother and child from his bloody decree by the parting of the waves of the River ________ to permit them to pass through on dry ground. 5. The early retirement of ________ to a desert. 6. His baptism or ablution in the River _________…. 7. His transfiguration at ________, where he assured his disciples that “present or absent, I will always be with you.”  9. He was anointed with oil by women. 10. …fish story is told of him — his disciples being enabled by him to catch large draughts of the finny prey in their nets. Many of the precepts uttered by ___________display a profound wisdom and depth of thought.  For a list of them Click on the Christianity page above and slide to the end. Here is one of the final ones: Above all things, cultivate love for your neighbor.WHO WAS THIS? This was Chrishna (Krishna) of India, who according to tradition was crucified approximately 1200 B.C. Incidentally, he had a “virgin” birth, either by a hair of the Hindu God Vishnu entering his mother’s womb, or in another version of the myth, God Vishnu himself entering her womb.How is this for religious intolerance? Rabbi Yaacov Perrin said, “One million Arabs are not worth a Jewish fingernail.” Muhammad married a 6 year old girl. Joseph Smith, the founder of Mormonism had 24 wives, one was 14 years old. Christ story is based on other myths (Chrishna of India and Mithra of Persia). The story of Moses is patterned after the story of Sargon the Great.

What do the Dead Sea Scrolls say about Jesus? The short answer: Nothing, and the last of the scrolls have been dated to approximately 68 AD.
The scrolls were discovered in 1948, and the Vatican, after a Church Father was put in charge of the translation, suppressed the publication of the Scrolls for many years.
http://wiki.answers.com/Q/What_do_the_Dead_Sea_Scrolls_say_about_Jesus
” There was no mention of Jesus in the Dead Sea Scrolls because Jesus as a living historical figure, in their theory, did not exist. They could not state that publicly because of the fear of an outcry, but that was the situation. ” (above from: http://www.biblemysteries.com/library/james.htm).
Pope Leo X (1513-1521): Some believe that he considered Jesus to be a mere legend.
The Catholic Encyclopedia refers to a widely circulated remark:

How much we and our family have profited by the legend of Christ, is sufficiently evident to all ages.”

Historically, it is quite doubtful whether Christ ever existed at all, and if He did we do not know anything about Him.“  –Bertrand Russell

The above confirms the statements in my book “A Curse on All Their Houses”  page 62, “The Forged Origins of the New Testament”.  The book also covers astonishing irregularities in all four main religions, plus there is  a chapter on violence in Buddhism, which is normally viewed as very peaceful and is actually the most peaceful of the 5 religions, by far, although in practice there have been exceptions to the peaceful image.

THE CODE FOR GLOBAL ETHICS

Not in my book, but interesting:

The United States was not, in any sense,  founded on the Christian religion:

It’s in a treaty.

From: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Treaty_of_Tripoli

…”receiving ratification unanimously from the U.S. Senate on June 7, 1797 and signed by Adams, taking effect as the law of the land on June 10, 1797.

The Treaty is much discussed in the 21st century because of the text of article 11, as ratified by the Senate:

As the Government of the United States of America is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion; as it has in itself no character of enmity against the laws, religion, or tranquility, of Mussulmen; and, as the said States never entered into any war, or act of hostility against any Mahometan nation, it is declared by the parties, that no pretext arising from religious opinions, shall ever produce an interruption of the harmony existing between the two countries.”

Samuel Butler, researcher for truth and seeker of truth, regardless where the chips may fall.

About beyondallreligion

Samuel Butler, Author: BEYOND ALL RELIGION Most all religions are based upon a bedrock of lies. Christianity was invented by Emperor Constantine , for political purposes, based upon the myth of Mithra, a Persian savior god born on December 25 , son of a virgin. Mithra performed miracles and was later crucified. Pope Leo X (died 1521) called Christ a “Fable”. Later Pope Paul III expressed similar sentiments. Moses is based on the Sumerian life and legends of Sargon I, King of Akkad, “set in a basket of rushes and “cast into the river”. Egyptians kept exhausting hieroglyphic records. There is a complete absence of any record of Moses leading over 600,000 men, women and children away from Pharaoh’s army. Joseph Smith, founder of Mormonism, was convicted in a court of Law of being an “impostor”, today a fraud, con man, in 1826. He wrote the Book of Mormon soon after. Question: You decide: Does the text of the verses of the Qur’an correspond exactly to those revealed to Muhammad directly as the words of God, delivered to Muhammad through the angel Gabriel, as claimed?

    my my, quite a conspiracy theory. A little bit similar to other conspiracy theories… Parallelomania at it again, a favourite of the mythicists. I’ve never been a believer in any religion, grew up in a secular environment, but I’m a historian and interested in history with method, not conspiracy theory.

    “God” is euphemism of the electromagnetic force or energy in everybody and everything.

  17. Yes, Christianity was invented by Emperor Constantine and Bishop Eusebius in 325 A.D. right after the Nicene Council for political purposes. There were too many different religious factions for harmony in the Empire. Eusebius has been described as the “First thoroughly dishonest historian of antiquity”. Historian Gibbon (Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire) impugned his honesty. Unfortunately many writers use Eusebius’s Church History as a source, because most other writings were destroyed on orders of Emperor Constantine. He ordered that any man found concealing writings should be stricken off from his shoulders (beheaded). The purge of “heathen” temples and writings continued and included the destruction of the Serapeum. The Serapeum housed the Great Library of Alexandria. The fable of Christ is a copy of the story of Mithra, which was one of the main religious deities floating in Rome at the time. There were close to 300 Mithra monuments or statues in Rome. A Mithra shrine was uncovered under St. Paul”s Cathedral! Born of a virgin, ”
    “His birth in a grotto was attended by magi who followed a star from the East. They brought “gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh” and the newborn baby was adored by shepherds.” Mithra, the messiah of the first kings of the Persian Empire, was eventually crucified, one of 16 mythical crucifixions before Christ going all the was back to the purported Crucifixion of Chrishna of India in 1200 B.C.

  18. I sometimes think of Zero Point Energy, in the light you speak of . It is invisible, it is everywhere, it is all-powerful. You could “boil the oceans” with a properly harnessed cubic meter of it , according to a famous physicist Hal Puthoff .

  19. Many of The United States Founding Fathers Were Not Christians

    It’s in a treaty.

    From: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Treaty_of_Tripoli

    …”receiving ratification unanimously from the U.S. Senate on June 7, 1797 and signed by Adams, taking effect as the law of the land on June 10, 1797.

    The Treaty is much discussed in the 21st century because of the text of article 11, as ratified by the Senate:

    As the Government of the United States of America is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion; as it has in itself no character of enmity against the laws, religion, or tranquility, of Mussulmen; and, as the said States never entered into any war, or act of hostility against any Mahometan nation, it is declared by the parties, that no pretext arising from religious opinions, shall ever produce an interruption of the harmony existing between the two countries.”

    What is the title of that book you are reading now? (about the MIND). I lost my information in that letter and I’d like to buy that book. I read a LOT. So, I read all of this (which I had already read more than once) to arrive at this point so that I could contact you. I am determined. 🙂
    Thanks,
