Is it that you don't want to be alone in your decision to not believe in any God? Do you feel like you are somhow liberating the blind followers from a lifetime of misery living a lie?

And for me the collest thing about my God is that even if you don't believe in him, he still loves you.
what's the problem with the Ascended Masters or Great White Brotherhood?
Christ's b-day of December 25th is a farce, which also happens to be a pagan holiday. No collaboration of scholarly sources that demonstrates his existence. No actual writings that came from Christ.
Is there scriptural support for Yeshua (Jesus) being born on the 1st of Tishri? Yes, in 1 Corinthians 15:45 it says in talking about Yeshua, "The first man, Adam, became a living soul. The last Adam became a life-giving spirit." In 1 Corinthians 15:22, it states, "For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ (the Messiah) all shall be made alive." Yeshua is the second Adam, and the rabbi's have long taught that Adam's birthdate was on 1 Tishri. So it is no coincidence that the second Adam has the same exact birth date.
1:1 Abgarus, king of Edessa, to Jesus the good Saviour, who appears at Jerusalem, greeting. 1:2 I have been informed concerning you and your cures, which are performed without the use of medicines and herbs. 1:3 For it is reported, that you cause the blind to see, the lame to walk; do both cleanse lepers, and cast out unclean spirits and devils, and restore them to health who have been long diseased; and raisest up the dead; 1:4 All which when I heard, I was persuaded of one of these two, viz: either that you are God himself descended from heaven, who do these things, or the son of God. 1:5 On this account therefore I have wrote to you, earnestly to desire you would take the trouble of a journey hither, and cure a disease which I am under. 1:6 For I hear the Jews ridicule you, and intend you mischief. 1:7 My city is indeed small, but neat, and large enough for us both.
[The answer of Jesus by Ananias the footman to Abgarus the king, declining to visit Edessa.] 2:1 Abgarus, you are happy, forasmuch as you have believed on me, whom ye have not seen. 2:2 For it is written concerning me, that those who have seen me should not believe on me, that they who have not seen might believe and live. 2:3 As to that part of your letter, which relates to my giving you a visit, I must inform you, that I must fulfil all the ends of my mission in this country, and after that be received up again to him who sent me. 2:4 But after my ascension I will send one of my disciples, who will cure your disease, and give life to you, and all that are with you.
[COMMENT: According to Church tradition, the second letter was accompanied by a towel which the Lord had held to His face and imprinted miraculously with an image of His countenance. This "icon made without hands" WAS WIDELY COPIED in the East and is familiar to all Byzantine Orthodox. Two other relics are said to bear similar miraculous images of the Saviour: the veil which Veronica handed Him on the way to Golgotha, and possibly also the Lord's Burial-Shroud.]

I describe all religions as an, ever expanding, inverted pyramid. At the lower point, or begining, is the truth. A time progresses, the widening increases. So that we are only creating greater distance from ourselves and the truth. Sorry if that visual is confusing. It is easier for me to demonstrate than to explain.
