When I came to ATS, I was looking for answers to what is really going on in the world. But, in the process, I have had my Religious Belief Systems
challenged. For the past few years, I have experienced a Deprogramming of False Belief Systems. This has been a painful experience. Believe me when I
tell you, its pretty depressing to find out what you have lived and made life decisions on for 50 years is nothing but BS (Belief Systems). I found
out that these belief systems were installed only to control me. They had nothing to do with the truth.
Im still deprogramming, It might take another 50 to undo the brainwashing. So, Ive spent a vast amount of time wallowing in emotions that just suck,
Fear of Gods reprisal if I question what I was taught, guilt and shame for thinking I could think with my own brain about it, ANGER for wasting
sooooooo much time etc. I vacillated between putting my fingers in my ears and la la la dont want to hear it, and barely hanging onto the Hem of Jesus
garment. I fervently clung with all the faith I could muster, regardless of the truth that was hitting me between the eyes like a hot iron.
Im sure Im not the only one on ATS that has either gone through this, or is currently going through this. My personal experience in deprogramming was
from false Christian Beliefs, but I am sure there are those of all faiths who are questioning the validity of what their church teaches vs THE
So, below I have listed some links to stuff that has helped me in this process. And I hope others will give their deprogramming testimony and share
what has spoken truth to their heart.
Warning to Christians who are content in your BS (Belief Systems). You might want to keep your fingers in your ears and stay in a state of La la la
on this one.
The Dead Sea Scrolls, Nag Hammadi Gnostic Texts, Ancient Roman Historic writers like Josephus. Most of these can be found at
I found the teachings of Professor Robert Eisenman, on the Dead Sea Scrolls, James the brother of Jesus and the Nag Hammadi's to be one of the most
important resources. He teaches at California State University Long Beach, his classroom lectures are on-line.

I found out who, and what the "Apostle" (apostate) Paul was.
This will link to other interesting views about Paul.
The connections between Jesus and Mithras and a bunch of other ancient Gods. There are numerous documentaries available,
The Pagan Origins of our celebrations, Christmas and Easter. There are so many documentaries on this I couldnt pick just one, so I recommend a google
I still believe in a Higher Power, and I am only beginning to grasp that IT can not fit into a Religious Box. But, the truth shall set you
