Abstract

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: 1

“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...

Christmas, Jesus, December 25, and making merry

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.Read More

12 Apostles: Constellations, Numerology, &Theology in the world’s religions: Quest to Understand Origins; a study of textual criticism, translation, interpretation and linguistics

The least educated, most gullible turn to fortune-tellers, star-gazers, numerologists and religious fundamentalists in quest of answers that they are too afraid to find for themselves. All religions have gazed to the stars for answers and ordained or commissioned religious leaders to provide rituals that include eating the body and drinking the blood of their crucified saviours. But why is this? This essay explains the foundations of fear and the quest for comfort in a world not known--even seeking relief from extra terrestrials.Read More

Invention of the Bible and Christianity

Christians delight in quoting from the Bible, which they claim goes back to the first century. Documents show that the Bible is not that old, but first issued in 322 CE and that revisions followed until it was declared closed by the Council of Trent in the sixteenth century. Numerous errors were put into the original gospel (John) with the additions of other gospels and letters, separating ancient christianos and chrestianos, and leading to a mythology of martyrdom and crosses.Read More

Ignorance, GOP, Bible and Global Warming

Ignorance in the USA is not “creeping along” but running backwards surpassing all scientific truths and realities in quest of the alma mater narcotic nipple of complacency and wishful thinking—and it is not just in the USA, it is a worldwide contagion. Ignorance breeds hatred and violence as seen in the twin evils of the Florida evangelical church that burned a Koran, to the Afghani zealots who murdered in cold blood UN peace keepers.  As Stephen Pizzo wrote (03/24/2011): “For the nation that has, for a couple of centuries, been not only a beacon of freedom, but also a beacon of knowledge and science, Creeping Ignorance at the heart of our government threatens to turn us into a nation only Glenn Beck, Sarah Palin and Ann Coulter, et al[.], could love: one big festival of stupidity...
