According to Bruno Bartoloni’s book The Ears of the Vatican, there is a curse that is 1000 years old on the bones alleged to be those of Simon Peter bar Jonas, popularly known as St. Peter. Bartolini wrote:
“No pope had ever permitted an exhaustive study, partly because a 1,000-year-old curse attested by secret and apocalyptic documents, threatened anyone who disturbed the peace of Peter’s tomb with the worst possible misfortune.”
What the possible misfortune consists of is not detailed, nor is the “secret and apocalyptic documents...Read More
Joseph Ratzinger rejects modern studies and scientific advancement in an effort to return the Roman Catholic Church to the tenth century and superstition. Attacking the family as being composed of loving individuals, Ratzinger prefers blind obedience to outdated regulations and interpretations of a church that did not exist before 325 CE.
Religion has always opposed human freedom. Instead of liberty to expand the mind, religion has sought mind control from the days when the Christian church was formed in 325 CE, to the rise of islam and beyond. Many tortured souls, like Josemaria Escrivá hid behind mortifications of the flesh (flagellation), and pretended, like John Paul II, that these were pious acts encouraged by St. Paul--proving their own linguistic and Biblical illiteracy.
University of Nebraska-Omaha's Secular Student Alliance attempted to present its reasons for existing on the state campus, but Scott Voorhees turned the conversation into a sexist rant--a barking that UNO President James B. Milliken ignored--denying UNO students of equal treatment at the state university. Milliken's lack of action is a direct attack on the rights of UNO students for support and defense.
Historical proof for New Testment Jesus? Tacitus and Josephus redacted with errors. Copyists create history in an effort to invent a religion and synthesize two groups: chrestianos and christianos. War on disbelief and lie of Nero burning Rome.
Open abuse of human rights is common in Bulgaria where the Bulgarian Orthodox Church calls on its members to stone gays. The government does little to protect those the Church abhores, and only acts when international groups, such as Human Rights Watch, becomes involved. Hate is an official family value in Bulgaria's Christianity.
Education in Perú exists only marginally. Various accrediting bodies rank Peru as the worse nation on the planet to obtain an education: that students have little interest or sense of responsibility, that the government denies funds for adequate buildings, teaching resources and payment for good teachers, and that neither teachers nor students have a sense of responsibility or urgency in acquiring a solid education. This is the result of the stranglehold of organized religion in Peru.
Christmas is considered a time of families being together, sharing drink, food, dance, and various pleasures--but this has never been the rule for all nor the fortune for everyone, as religions have held it captive, deprived it of its temporal joys, and denied the reality of peace and harmony.
What can be discovered in existing records is not only the absence of information for apostolic succession and the papacy, but equally important is the reality that most of what is allegedly Christian is far older than the Bible. Its message is found throughout the Roman Empire in earlier civilizations. The creation of the Bible was nothing less than an attempt to revise or rewrite history so as to control an ignorant people.
