Here is something that we really not ought to ignore the possibility of.
My contention, which I have written about extensively here on ATS is that the Dark Ages were Dark for the expressed point and objective of stamping
out pagan religions and imposing Christianity as a form of Roman Law.
Much of this Paganism was stamped out violently, and through deception.
For instance Astronomers say it is impossible for Jesus to have been born December 25th, that the Star that heralded his birth as told in the Bible
would have appeared in March and not December.
What we do know, is that Rome could not get the Pagans to stop celebrating Yule, a festival many nations had from the Winter Solstice through New
Years, and dates back all the way to Babylonian times.
So they Christianized it by proclaiming Jesus was born on the 25th to usurp the celebration.
What if, during the dark ages the violence of wiping out Paganism was so horrific they sought to minimize it by creating a alternative history that
obscures a good bit of it?
For instance suppose Hitler would have won World War II, what would history then say about the Holocaust a couple centuries later, would they gloss it
over as a necessity, or make it seem like it never happened at all.
Handwritten manuscripts (I have seen many illuminated ones at the Getty Museum in Malibu California which has the world’s largest collection) are
just that hand written.
Watch what I can write by hand: Today Monday April 13th, 2251, I walked my dog!
That doesn’t mean it is Monday, April 13th or the year 2251 or that I walked my dog or even have one. It means that I wrote a false account and
Spies, Law Enforcement Agents, and Forgers and Criminals establish false identities all the time, with the State doing it just as much as the criminal
Now because the computer time stamp on this post is going to say: Saturday, July 10, 2010 we know my above statement is false.
Because people are actually witnessing this occur, people who are alive and breathing right now and can be questioned about it and speak about it and
give testimony to it, we further know my above statement is false.
So two very important aspects are missing in regards to information written in hand by an Army of Roman Monks, Clerks and Scribes, no independent
verification, no living witnesses to question, so yes it really could all be false and manufactured to impose a new form of governance that derives
it’s power from a willing populace after an unwilling populace was murdered off, and those crimes obscured to history.
My contention is that once the Roman Christian Religious system was firmly in place they lifted the Dark Ages and permitted the Renaissance Period to
proceed to put the population now firmly under their control back to work to acquire more land and resources and expand the empire and it’s
I see motive and opportunity here, the motive being the Roman State’s desire to forgo the huge cost of Bread and Circuses and defending far flung
borders, by creating a divide and conquer system that would use God as the basis of Governance instead of Roman Power as the bases for governance,
with the bulk of the people’s rewards payable upon death by that God, and very few rewards for submission and servitude of the State in life.
How much time is missing in this period is irrelevant, I do believe that is exactly what happened, and why.
