    Story of Jesus Christ was 'fabricated to pacify the poor', claims controversial Biblical scholar

    "Joseph Atwill, who is the author of a book entitled 'Caesar's Messiah: The Roman Conspiracy to Invent Jesus', asserts that Christianity did not begin as a religion, but was actually a sophisticated government propaganda exercise used to pacify the subjects of the Roman Empire."

    That's actually a pretty old theory, I heard about it when I was a kid when I went to Catholic grade school, so if this guy thinks he is bringing up anything new ... he's not. Everyone already knows there is little to no actual existence of documentation proving that Jesus was a real person, other than the biblical Gospels. What he cannot disprove is that it is also possible that he existed, but the Romans and the Pharisees did everything they could to erase his name from the history books because his followers were starting a new religion. Tens of thousands of murdered Christian martyr of that time are evidence of that. The catacombs beneath Rome provide plenty of evidence of those murders. Can you not see that what is going on in the middle east now, by radical islamist, are the same sort of people that existed at that time. Yes they enjoyed torturing and killing people then just as people in that part of the world do now. Yes they tried to destroy any evidence of history just as they are doing now. So yes he has a theory, but he does not have the evidence to validate it.

    I don't have to read this story, the greatest lie ever told


    Introducing 'Jesus', the son, the God particle made=

    The Sun was formed about 4.57 billion years ago from the collapse of part of a giant molecular cloud that consisted mostly of hydrogen and helium and that probably gave birth to many other stars.
