Book Description

July 1 1999
Controversial and explosive, The Christ Conspiracy marshals an enormous amount of startling evidence that the religion of Christianity and Jesus Christ were created by members of various secret societies, mystery schools and religions in order to unify the Roman Empire under one state religion! This powerful book maintains that these groups drew upon a multitude of myths and rituals that already existed long before the Christian era and reworked them into the story the Christian religion presents today-known to most Westerners as the Bible. Author Acharya makes the case that there was no actual person named Jesus, but that several characters were rolled into one mythic being inspired by the deities Mithras, Heracles/Hercules, Dionysus and many others of the Roman Empire. She demonstrates that the story of Jesus, as portrayed in the Gospels, is nearly identical in detail to those of the earlier savior-gods Krishna and Horus, and concludes that Jesus was certainly neither original nor unique, nor was he the divine revelation. Rather, he represents the very ancient body of knowledge derived from celestial observation and natural forces. A book that will initiate heated debate and inner struggle, it is intelligently written and referenced. The only book of its kind, it is destined for controversy.

Review

Drawing together an amazing amount of research, Acharya S...demolishes the facade of Christianity, showing that it is 100% mythology. -- You Are Being Lied Too, April 1, 2001

From the Author

"The Christ Conspiracy" contains over 1200 footnotes that cite archaeological, historical and literary documentation by a wide variety of sources, including many Christian authorities extending back to the beginning of the Christian era. The book is a scholarly work that presents scientific analysis and facts, not "opinions."

The dating of the gospels to the last quarter of the second century is based on the work of Judge Charles Waite, from his detailed study in "History of the Christian Religion to the Year Two Hundred," which shows conclusively that the canonical gospels could not have existed earlier than 170-180 CE. Another excellent source of this information is Cassell's "Supernatural Religion," an 1100-page tome that goes into great detail, analyzing early Church fathers' works line by line.

Format:Paperback
Having been raised in a narrow-minded, fundamental Christian environment, I experienced the abuse and insidious practices of this power-hungry institution. Having extracted myself from this loathsome mindset and unwashed my brain of ridiculous fear and guilt programming, I relish the book Christ Conspiracy by Acharya S who bravely exposes popular Christian dogma for what it really is: a sham. This book goes a long way to help expedite the demise of false teachings.
Acharya takes on what I consider the world's most dangerous establishment (and if you don't believe me, just look at the violent history of the church and so-called 'Christian nations'), and with flair, points out the many inconsistencies, contradictions, and the myths that have come to be interpreted as literal people and real events. Like forward-thinking people before her, she wades through false information, debunking the spiritual darkness that has been foisted upon hapless humanity for the past 2000 years.
This is not to say that all teachings in the many versions of the Christian bible are odious. Some are wonderful guidelines for good living such as 'Love your neighbour as yourself.' Others sound like the decrees of blood-thirsty tyrants: 'Bring my enemies here and slaughter them in front of me.' The contradictory statements contained in the bible have caused schisms in many a mind and the deaths of millions, such as the Spanish Inquisition as one of many examples. And nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition!
Hip, scholarly and with keen insight, Acharya demolishes Christianity's most sacred concept (the Immaculate Misconception): that Jesus actually existed.

5.0 out of 5 stars History does repeat itself Aug. 26 2001
Format:Paperback
Did you know that Buddha was born on December 25th of a virgin along with Dionysus, Horus, Krishna, Mithra and many other gods? Odd isn´¿t it´¿? With all these stories we hear about The Last Supper, Adam and Eve, etc., one can´¿t help but wonder where it all came from. Like why everyone has that little fish on their car and why Jesus is symbolized by it? Or maybe why there were 3 wise men instead of 2 or 5? Ask most Christians and they would simply say, ´¿You just have to have faith.´¿ and offer you no reasonable answer. Well if you´¿d like a detailed background on your religion so you can answer these questions, or maybe just to read about how silly it is to believe, then this book is an absolute must have. With over 400 pages of detailed information, Acharya S exemplifies the many inconsistencies, contradictions, and flat out rip offs, that Christianity (and others) have instilled within so many Americans. I recommend this book with a very high two thumbs up and I´¿m looking forward to reading her new book "Suns of God" once it comes out.

2.0 out of 5 stars An Athiest View Aug. 9 2005
Format:Paperback
Where do I start? I have been a member of Amazon for several years, and in that time, I have read over 200 books. However, never before have I been so moved to write a review of a book.
I am an atheist, and thought that (among other readings) this book, given the title, would provide extra evidence of my world view. Which in many ways it has.
My main problem with this book is not the content, or the beliefs it argues against, but the poor writing style and the lack of original, cohesive arguement.
Much of the book, mainly culled from more learned sources, is very informative. However, that is the main problem. Acharya S presents her case as if it were a scientific one, and that religions are only based on "belief", rather than proven fact. While this view of religion may largely be true, her own arguements stand-up to no great scrutiny. Her whole case appears to be built upon the views of other authors she has read (and VERY, VERY extensively quoted). If Acharya truly wants to convert people from a belief system, to one based on scientifically proven fact, she needs to work much harder on the proof aspects, and spend less time quoting other authors.
A good premise for a book, and decent attempt for presenting a certain view, but "minus several million for good (original?) thinking" (thanks Douglas Adams!) - oh yeah, good idea, read "Last Salmon of Doubt", and then some of the referenced books; if you want some good, thought provoking reading.
So long, and thanks for all the fish!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Debunking Xianity in one fell swoop... May 20 2004
Format:Paperback
There is a fundamental problem with Christianity. One so bewilderingly unimaginable as to have remained almost entirely unplumbed, save by the most intelligent few of our recent history.
This simple fact is: Christianity is obsolete.
To wit:
"The various modes of worship, which prevailed in the Roman world, were all considered by the people, as equally true; by the philosopher, as equally false; and by the magistrate, as equally useful."
Edward Gibbon's Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire
And it was due (at least in part) to said magistrates' very realization that the 'useful tool' of the Holy Catholic Church of Rome came into being. It was the 'perfect' blending of "church and state", the establishment of a national religion that encompassed aspects of many of the popular religions during that time. For some time now, though, Christianity has outlived its original purpose: to establish a 'unified church' within the then religiously scattered, impossibly philosophically segmented Roman Empire under one all-encompassing religion. Thus, Christianity has been rendered inutile to modern-day humanity. In fact, for anyone to continue to 'believe' in any religion, including and especially one such as Christianity, in light of the well-established facts surrounding its foundation and history (both past and present), is tantamount to that person choosing to cling to a psychological pathology equal to dementia praecox or multiple personality disorder or worse. There has never been, in all of recorded history, a bloodier, more vile and despicable chronicle associated with any religion than that of Christianity. Suffice to say that Christianity holds the record for the most human lives folded, spindled, and mutilated in the name of God in recorded history.
