A Pre-Christian 'God' on a Cross?A Pre-Christian 'God' on a Cross?

by D.M. Murdock/Acharya S

In 2001, a line drawing of the tiny Orpheus Bakkikos crucifix was pictured on the cover of Timothy Freke and Peter Gandy’s The Jesus Mysteries. The image created a bit of a sensation, as apologists scrambled to debunk the object because of its similarities to supposed "Christian" iconography. Very soon, cries of "forgery!" were ringing out on the internet and beyond, and the integrity of the Jesus Mysteries authors was impugned with fury, for exposing the amulet to the light of day. But were such charges of forgery appropriate and based on a thorough scientific investigation? Learn more...

Acharya S, en su riguroso y esclarecedor estudio La conspiración de Cristo demuestra, recopilando multitud de pruebas documentales e históricas, que no hay evidencias textuales de su vida y obra antes del siglo II d.C., en que aparecen los primeros evangelios, y que «Jesucristo» es, de hecho, una compilación de las vidas y enseñanzas de diversos dioses y hombres santos cuyos dramas fueron regularmente representados por los pueblos antiguos mucho antes de la era cristiana: de Mitra, Krishna, Attis, Buda, Dionisos y Hércules, entre otros, cuenta la tradición que nacieron también de una virgen el día 25 de diciembre, y resucitaron de su tumba, varios de ellos tras ser crucificados, el 25 de marzo.
