The Lucis Trust, formerly known as the Lucifer Publishing Company was formed by Alice A. Bailey a Theophsist and disciple of Madame Blavatsky (Helena Petrovna Blavatsky). Blavatsky was the founder of Theosophy and is considered the "mother" of the New Age movement and modern occultism. She taught in her Secret Doctrine that Lucifer was "higher and older than Jehovah. She further expressed in her "great work" that Satan, under different god-names, is really an allegory of "Good, and Sacrifice, a God of Wisdom." Blavatsky believed that Satan was the only god of earth, "is one with the Logos," and is the "cosmic reflection of God.". Blavatsky also equated Lucifer with Jesus Christ.
The Lucis Trust (or Lucifer Publishing Company) is a United Nations Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) and is represented at weekly sessions at the United Nations in New York and Geneva and a member of the UN Economic and Social Council.
Zeitgeist Part I used the controversial author Archarya S as the consultant for the movie. Part I of the movie is based on her book "The Christ Conspiracy", she also penned the companion guide for Zeitgeist.
Archarya S plagiarised her book from a book written in the 1800's by a Quaker who claimed without any evidence that there were 16 previous crucified saviours. This book was heavily cited by the Theosphical Society (founded by Madam Blavatsky - see above).
Archarya S expanded on the themes of the original book by drawing on material from Madam Blavatsky; revered 33rd degree Freemason Alber Pike who stated "Yes, Lucifer is God"; controversial researcher "Jordan Maxwell" (a pseudonym: derived from one of Maxwell's mentors, Madame Blavatsky's, works-- i.e., Jordanus Maximus); Gerlad Massey (High Chief Druid and contributor to Blavatsky's Lucifer Magazine); Albert Churchward (Freemason); James Churchward (Freemason); Michael Baigent (Freemason); Godfrey Higgins (Freemason / Cheif Druid) and others. To this day there are unclaimed financial rewards for anyone who can actually back up any of the claims made by Archarya S or Zeitgeist Part I.

Thanks so much, all of you
In response to the question of where in this country is religion being shoved down my throat, I never said that....I was meaning that is expected to be a Christian, especially in the South. People look at you different and call you atheist automatically, but then that is a contradiction in itself to one who doesn't belive in relgion at all; you gotta be a beliver to be against it). I have even had boyfriends to leave the elationship over this...but I stand frim now after reading and researching and am now more comfortable than ever before in believeing that religion isnothing more than an allegorical story to lay a psychological foundation of control...Zeitgeist helped me to open my eyes wider but then they were already opened in my youth...
Religion being analyzed and exposed for what it really IS TRULY a tough pill for so many to swallow. And it's understandable: it's what they and their parents, grandparents and many before them believe. And then to discover that it is not what is seemed is totally crushing; nevertheless, it is what it is.....

I don't think anyone did say God is a myth.
The OP didn't, though maybe that's what he was implying...
Personally, I believe God is a myth, but I don't know.
But I do see many things taught in religion as myths, such as homo sapiens only existing for 6,000 years when we have proof that homo sapiens have existed for at least 160,000 years, or fitting every type of animal on Earth on a ship which couldn't possibly mimick the environment that many of the animals would need to survive...
