A Film Clip About the Origins of Christianity

Below is a film clip that I found on YouTube the other day.  It lays out a plausible theory that Christianity and other religions originating in the Middle East are based on early Sun worship and astrology.  I cannot vouch for the credibility of the factual assertions.  In fact, I suspect that some may be hyperbole or wishful thinking.  The film is, however, quite illuminating and entertaining. 

One thing that I noticed about the points put forth in the film that was apparently not noticed by the writers and producers is the connection between an apparent mistranslation of one of Jesus' prophecies and current events, specifically global warming.

The film points out that when Jesus supposedly said that he would be with "us" to the end of time was actually a mistranslation.  The word used in the original text, "aeon", is better translated as "age" or "era".  Thus, what Jesus actually said was that he would be with us until the end of the age.

That point is significant because, as the film points out, Jesus was born at the beginning of the astrological age of Pisces, which will end around the year 2150.  At that time the age of Aquarius will begin.  Remember the Fifth Dimension song of the same name?  (Also, used in the Broadway show and movie "Hair".)

According to the song, in the age of Aquarius "peace will guide the planet and love will steer the stars".

The filmmakers did note that the symbol for Christianity is a fish and for Pisces is two fish (and they mention Jesus feeding a multitude--supposedly--with two fish and five loaves).  What they did not mention is that because of global warming many parts of the Earth may well be flooded by the year 2150--the beginning of the Age of Aquarius, which is the water sign.

If atheism were a religion, and I were superstitious, I might claim that this was a prophecy that Christianity would disappear around that time.  In fact, it may well disappear around that time because humanity may begin to realize that global warming and the resulting flooding and other forms of harm are a direct result of religion's influence on history.

After all, were it not for religion no one would be debating whether birth control should be used.  It is clear that our world is overpopulated and that global warming, not to mention the utter inability of our society to acknowledge it and make plans to stop it, is a direct result.

"Peace will guide the planet and love will steer the stars".  Hmm. . .  sounds like a prophecy of the end of religion to me!  If only. 

Here is the film.  Enjoy:


  1. Interesting how atheists spend all their time trying to disprove Christianity, and completely ignore the fact that there is no scientific evidence supporting atheism.

  2. Really? You think atheists spend all their time trying to disprove Christianity? How many atheists do you know? I would say, none.

    The majority of us spend almost no time on religion of any sort--if we can help it.

    Those who spend time, such as myself, do so because we recognize religion for what it is: A sick, twisted philosophy, a massive con game, and a crime against humanity.

    I don't want to spend any time on religion at all, but I find that religious people won't let me live my life in peace. So, I fight back.

    If you knew anything at all about science, you would know that the existence of god is not a subject for science for the simple reason that it is not falsifiable. Therefore, in any sane society, the issue would never even be debated unless and until someone produced evidence of the existence of a god. The utter lack of evidence for a deity, combined with the mountains of evidence showing that religions are man-made and the fact that the arguments offered to support it are all logically invalid is all the evidence one needs in that situation to conclude that the offered hypothesis (god) is a false one.
