And on the 3rd day,
Jesus walked from the cave,
Stretched out his arms and said...

"April Fools!"

- - - - -

So, here's the Question of the Day

Did Jesus really die on the Cross?

Happy Easter. If you were one of Jesus's disciples, wouldn't you say you were him to save him from being arrested. The people arresting him did not know what he looked like, anyone could have taken his place that day. Maybe the whole thing was a setup.

The Establishment kills anyone that threatens to expose their lies.

Jesus was a "terrorist".

Don't know, but enough people do believe he did.

So why argue the point?

Begs the question, if he even existed, blind faith says yes, history raises questions.

So Judas kissed the wrong guy? Hard to tell at this point, just like in "The Tale of Two Cities." But the issue is more of "He is risen!" than anything else. Lots of people died on the cross. The fact that this "happened" at the Spring Equinox is just a coincidence. That's just an accident. That couldn't actually mean anything or be important to the overall story, right?

The answer is YES and the power of God's Holy Spirit is still speaking to the hearts and minds of people today, just as He always has...


The most read book in the world is the Bible.

Writer James Chapman created a list of the most read books in the world based on the number of copies each book sold over the last 50 years.

He found that the Bible far outsold any other book, with a whopping 3.9 billion copies sold over the last 50 years.

Or maybe Judas was the one who was crucified in place of Jesus. Remember, he supposedly killed himself after the event. Maybe this is a very old conspiracy. He was the only one that disappeared.

yes he passed through the realms of reality

better question is why the bunnies and eggs??

it is because we live on a power planet and they are symbolic of new life

you know what bunnies do and the eggs represent the new life and earth

so put all together it is very powerful symbolism that does help get us through the year

Because the holiday of Easter is predated by a pagan fertility celebration.

I guess you can speculate space aliens if you want to. What evidence is there that Judas was crucified in his place? It's likely impossible to tell what really happened anyway, which is the stance of Albert Schweitzer, who was a noted Christian scholar before he went out to fight army ants in the jungle. But nevertheless I think we have to stick with the historical context and what information we have. All we have is "The Story" to go by, and we have the date, the Spring Equinox, the beginning of Spring, for many cultures New Years Day. The juxtaposition of THAT with "He is risen" is beyond obvious. As a mythological narrative we are discussing the beginning of the New Year. Yes, some take this literally and believe Jesus arose, just as some people believe Noah's Ark was real. Was Noah's Ark real? Extremely unlikely and technically impossible to fit all species inside, and that's just being nice about it. But was there a flood? Yes, with plenty of scientific evidence to back that assertion up. That's the reality behind the myth.

It's so easy to fool people with words, apparently.

I guarantee I write down "visions" and a religion would be formed many thousand years after my death.

Semiramis claimed that she was immaculately conceived. She taught that the moon was a goddess that went through a 28 day cycle and ovulated when full and that she had come down from the moon in a giant moon egg that fell into the Euphrates River at sunrise at the time of the first full moon after the spring equinox, on a Sunday. Semiramis became known as "Ishtar" which is pronounced "Easter" referred to as Ashtoreth in scripture, and her moon egg became known as "Ishtar's" egg." One of her titles was the Queen of Heaven, and two of her fertility symbols were the rabbit and the egg. She soon became pregnant and claimed that it was the rays of the sun-god Baal (the ascended Nimrod) that caused her to conceive.

The son that she brought forth was named Tammuz. Tammuz was believed to be the son of the sun-god, Baal. Tammuz, like his supposed father, became a hunter. The day came when Tammuz was killed by a wild pig. Queen Ishtar told the people that Tammuz was now ascended to his father, Baal, and that the two of them would be with the worshipers in the sacred candle or lamp flame as Father, Son and Spirit.

Ishtar, who was now worshiped as the "Mother of God and the Queen of Heaven", continued to build her mystery religion. The queen told the worshipers that when Tammuz was killed by the wild pig, some of his blood fell on the stump of an evergreen tree, and the stump grew into a full new tree overnight. This made the evergreen tree sacred by the blood of Tammuz.

She also proclaimed a forty day period of time of sorrow for each year prior to the anniversary of the death of Tammuz. During this time, no meat was to be eaten - this is what became known as Lent" in Roman Catholic tradition. Worshipers were to meditate upon the sacred mysteries of Baal and Tammuz, and to make the sign of the "Tau" (a cross) in front of their hearts as they worshiped. They also ate sacred cakes with the marking of a "T" or a cross, on the top. Every year, on the first Sunday after the first full moon after the spring equinox, a celebration was made. It was Ishtar's Sunday and was celebrated with rabbits and eggs. Ishtar also proclaimed that because Tammuz was killed by a pig, that a pig must be eaten on that Sunday.
