    Default Story of Jesus Fabricated Claims US scholar Joseph Atwill

    This article caught my attention in today's Belfast Telegraph online. US scholar Joseph Atwill claims that the story of Jesus was created to keep the poor in their place. His studies have lead him to conclude that the whole thing was made up after studying 'The War on the Jews' the only surviving first-person historical account of first-century Judea. In that book he noticed that there were clear parallels and sequences with the New Testament for it to be merely coincidental.

    "What seems to have eluded many scholars is that the sequence of events and locations of Jesus ministry are more or less the same as the sequence of events and locations of the military campaign of [Emperor] Titus Flavius as described by Josephus," Atwill claims.

    "This is clear evidence of a deliberately constructed pattern"

    I have proof story of Jesus Christ was fabricated to pacify and enslave the poor, claims US scholar Joseph Atwill - BelfastTelegraph.co.uk


    Should make for an interesting discussion.

    Racism = fear, low self-esteem and breath-taking ignorance.

    It's nonsense, risible stuff. No one takes this "theory" seriously. There are so many holes in it, it's not even funny.

    They need the scales to fall from their eyes so that they may see.
