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.

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.

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.

Many deceivers who do not acknowledge Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh have gone out into the world. Any such person is the deceiver and the antichrist. 2 Jn:7
That being said, I wouldn't be shocked if Acharya admitted to sporting a very fine 666. Perhaps those of us still feeling a little disoriented by our new-found-freedom delivered via her liberating writings, should substitute her mark-of-the-beast for the popes ring?...
She is obviously very passionate about her work and rightly so! Her attention to important details in scripture (that in my 35 years of church training have not been mentioned by any of my teachers) is very impressive!
A) Through scriptural analysis she exposes forgery, inconsistencies and the immoral perspectives/motivations of many of the writers/editors
B) She uses her knowledge of language, mythology and the scriptures to lucidly reveal the unorthodox and pagan perspectives of the scripture's writers/editors. She explains how, when and why the scriptures were corrupted/invented by church leaders and how they have been misinterpreted by the well-intentioned devout ever since.
C) Although her hypothesis seems bold, a little brutal and frankly quite unbelievable, by the time she is finished you'll feel that you've read a powerful debunking.
Unlike some harsh (and unfair) criticisms of this book I don't believe that it contains too many lengthy quotes. In fact for readers like myself who haven't had the privilege of being well educated in either ancient mythology or religions other than Christianity, I would have preferred even more excerpts of accepted written versions of these myths in the text. It would have saved me from having to do some external authenticating of references.
