Product Description

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
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This simple fact is: Christianity is obsolete.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.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Ann Smith Trust on July 8 2004
Format: Paperback
This is a well organized book that is enjoyable to read. The author confronts the issues well, uses lots of extracts from other works and provides references. The best parts are her own conclusions, views, and summaries that pull things together on nearly every page. To me it was much like a novel, I could hardly put it down, and that was after I had skipped here and there through its 400 plus pages. To those who seek truth and understanding on religion in general, as well as christianity in particular, this is the best you can get in one book. It will go a long way toward reducing the hate, war and conflict stemming from religion.

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.

Acharya S, The Christ Conspiracy: The Greatest Story Ever Sold (Adventures Unlimited, 1999)
Okay, I tried.
I've crossed swords with the author before on some of the very issues that show a blind spot in this book (the section on Evemerism is especially weak, for example; more on that below), but in many cases, her response ended up being "read my book," which then hadn't been released yet. Okay, so I got around to reading the book, or at least trying to read the book.
The Christ Conspiracy may well be on the most important subject to be written about in the last two thousand years. And what is here is well-researched, even if the source material isn't always of top quality. But the presentation is absolutely horrible. The book is just on the wrong side of unreadable; it seems almost as if it were written for the purpose of being presented as a textbook (the authors of which often seems if they're being deliberately obtuse). Interesting, this, because Acharya has a style about her that reaches for readability in today's culture; her diction is appealing to gen-X and younger readers, she's witty, a formidable opponent in debate, and simply quite likable. None of which actually comes out in her writing here; what we get is a four-hundred-page rant (well, okay, I only make it through two hundred fifty pages, but saw no reason to believe it would be any different to the end) that's dry as dust. It makes Bjorn Lomborg (The Skeptical Environmentalist) look like Stephen King.
What is most glaring, however, are the places where questions are raised that Acharya either refuses to answer or never thought of answering.
