    This is the identical set of conditions present today with Christians today.

    "Outlining his ideas in a blog posting on his website Mr Atwill writes: "Christianity may be considered a religion, but it was actually developed and used as a system of mind control to produce slaves that believed God decreed their slavery.

    Although Christianity can be a comfort to some, it can also be very damaging and repressive, an insidious form of mind control that has led to blind acceptance of serfdom, poverty, and war throughout history

    what an astounding discovery. Everyone from Schopenhauer to Malcolm X has said this. It is a slave's religion that makes the poor and the weak the most favored. Brilliant. And our western liberal society is just that. They love the poor and the weak. They favor them.

    It only makes poor and weak the most favored after they die. That's pretty macabre and insidious.

    I think the story of Muhammad was fabricated to pacify the pedophiles

    Sounds like what the Democratic Party does to blacks. Some day they will get their deliverance.

    The Flavian Jesus theory is interesting imho. Basically it theorized that all the turn the other cheek stuff and forgiveness stuff was shoehorn ed in to try and get the jews, who wouldn't stop fightin, to settle down. Look, your messiah came and he said forgive us! Or something like that

    I found this Sam Harris podcast really well done. The guest comes at it from a crazy amount of study in the Bible.

    It makes sense even if you take a very contemporary example of the us - the ones most ardent in yelling about "freedom" and shit are at the same time the most hc Jesus fanboys. The yoke is there to rebel against lol.

    The West has made weakness a rallying cry. Christianity is tolerant and cares for the poor. The liberal tolerance in Europe is totally a product of Christian values. Merkel is a good christian.

    What does caring about the poor have to do with genesis being complete bullshit.
