After having watched “Caesar’s Messiah”, I have a swirling bee-storm in my head. I guess I should let them out here. For most of them are pertinent to the thrust of this site. Firstly, I highly recommend this film. It’s one of those head-smacks for anyone that has ever pondered the beginnings of Christianity. Whether one accepts the myths surrounding this particular religion to be taken literally or as allegorical…or has a more secular ‘atheistic’ view of it… I think you will come away impressed. Very little presented in the film can be disproved by the most scholarly of Christian, or in fact, jewish apologists. And you get the added bonus of listening to one of my favorite gals…D.M. Murdock.
But it goes beyond that.
It is delightful to watch myths fail. When the fairytales that fail are harmful to the world.
Many have accused me of being soft on religion here at ‘howdarei”. And with good reason. Apart from judaism, I am. I learned long ago about the power of myth. It‘s place in the human psyche. It‘s stubborn and sluggish transition into more logical thought patterns. The comfort it affords…the tradition it supports…and in general, the need to walk softly concerning it. But those times are changing. And I am glad for it. It is very much like confirming to a child, that ‘yes, there is no Santa Claus‘, when they grow to understand that he might just be mythical. Because you are beneficiary to the supportive conclusion to that slight disappointment by telling such a child “Your Mom and I give you these gifts because we love you and look forward to seeing you so happy on Christmas”. But of course Santa never waged war on anyone. A purely beneficent mythical creature, Santa. It is easy to replace him in the eyes of a child, with an even more beneficent and objective reality. Just as science has replaced so many myths about the very real need for knowledge of when to plant and reap, so too will the myths of all religions give way to a much more impressive and useful understanding of our own human history.
Of course, not all of you understand this now, and may not in your lifetime. And that’s okay. Though I am not gifted with any special wisdom or knowledge that you yourself cannot acquire, I understand that the personal needs for religion vary from person to person. I am not the first, the only, or the most clever to hint to you that there is no Santa, or Christ or Mohammad. And, if you are religious in any way, I know you have your arguments prepared and memorized against such blasphemous debate. And that too is okay. I won’t even debate the issue here. That’s not what this place is about. For if you side with me on the evil intent of judaism…and use your own particular myths as weaponry in such battle, I would hate to see you fail…so I will point out your lack of artillery.
But continuing the allegory of SC that I started up there(I love allegory…as does religion itself), it too can be replaced with a more objective and much more awe-inspiring view of the universe and our place in it. Each religion(save one)glorifies love/regard for its fellow human. That is in us regardless, (and probably shaped) of the myths to which we cling. It isn’t ‘Santa-given‘. So this gives me hope that such dangerous mythological incentive used as tools to coerce and subjugate, that this compendium of the world’s religions(save one) will ‘boil down’ to the essential precepts of regard for it’s fellows.
You, of course, have noted my “save-one” references. So I will, using the myth-busting attitude of the subject film, direct you to understand that judaism and its rebellious ‘chosenness’ attitude is indeed what brought about the Roman need to create Christianity in the first place. As explained in the documentary, it was the warring jew that would not conform to Roman influence that, through a jewish-turncoat, gave rise to the very Gospels that are yet revered as the peaceful edicts that are the very foundation of any and all good that Christianity has brought to history. Whether you believe the jew to be an ‘evil’ entity by way of metaphysics or as this cult is simply explained in the study, you are on the right track. For very little has changed over the millenia with either religion. The Christian still seeks to improve the world(by doctrine)through peaceful/trusting means…and judaism still wars through adoration of itself.
I couldn’t have ordered a better explanation of the way things are in our modern world from the true history of both religions. It fits. It is entirely objective. No Santa Claus required.
So don’t miss this one. Believe it or not. Understand the objectivity of the research and conclude what you must. Anti-semitism is as essential to propagate today as it was to the Romans during their reign. We must destroy this cult. Then and only then, can we render unto humanity what is humanity’s.
