"Sacred Mushroom and the Cross" (video)

Opinion and explanation: The Sacred Mushroom and the Cross (Travis Jay Christofil)

The myth of Jesus Christ was to encompass all gods and all mythologies -- Pagan, Jewish...Buddhist.

Buddhist Therapeutae (Theravada)
Wisdom Quarterly Wikipedia edit (Therapeutae)
The similarities between Therapeutae tradition and Buddhist monasticism, which was established several centuries earlier, combined with Indian evidence of Buddhist missionary activity to the Mediterranean region around 250 BCE (the Edicts of Ashoka), have been pointed out (Ref).

Buddhism spread due to King Ashoka (260-218 BCE) according to the Edicts of Ashoka

Linguist Zacharias P. Thundy suggests that the word "Therapeutae" is simply the Hellenization of the Indian (Pali language) word for traditional Buddhists, Theravada.[Ref]

Egypt had intense trade and cultural contacts with India during this period, as described in the 1st century CE Periplus of the Erythraean Sea.

Astro-theology: Worship of Space

The Judeo-Christian Bible tells a wonderful story. It is, in fact, often referred to as "The Greatest Story Ever Told." And so it is! Here's why:

In the Christian Bible's New Testament, a provocative and most serious challenge is laid on the whole of Christianity.

"[I]f Christ be not risen, then our preaching is in vain, and your faith is also in vain. Yea, and we are found false witnesses of God. And if Christ be not raised, your faith is vain; ye are yet in your sins" (I Cor 15:14, 15, 17).

In the New Testament there is a warning given to all who would build a house. Namely, before you lay the foundation, find out what the foundation itself will rest on -- solid rock, or sand? The reason is obvious. Said another way, "We need to stand under the foundation to get a true under-standing."

Let's closely examine the original, conceptual foundations of the faith and then decide "if Christ be not risen." In order to do that, we must go back, not 2,000 years to the birth of Christ, but 8,000 to 10,000 years to the birth of modern man.

For when one seeks to establish foundations, one must begin at the beginning. Many thousands of years ago in what we refer to as the the "primordial world" of the ancients, human life was a far different experience. Retelling an ancient story>>
