Okay, folks, I had NEVER EVER heard of this guy....
and I did an ATS Search for him....the last one was seven years ago.....the member checked out in 2009....
I realize that s/he got zero stars and only a handful of responses...expecting more traffic. And that was reasonable. I think that despite the
"then" respondents who said it had been "done numerous times", it deserves to be brought up again. This fella, Kenneth Humphreys, has kept his
website updated past the OP cited above....
until I came across it, I was still "no, I believe he existed, and had a great message"....but now, thanks to ATS members' links....and quiet
I'm beginning to doubt that he existed at all.
I would like to open a dialogue about this man's theories...his dozens of sources....his view of things.
Maybe it has
been done before, but those members are gone or dormant now, and artistpoet has mentioned it recently. In my opinion, it needs to
Welcome to Enlightenment
Do you really think it all began with a sanctimonious Jewish wonder-worker, strolling about 1st century Palestine? Prepare to be enlightened.
Jesus – The Imaginary Friend
Christianity was the ultimate product of religious syncretism in the ancient world. Its emergence owed nothing to a holy carpenter. There were many
Jesuses but the fable was a cultural construct.
The nativity yarn is a concatenation of nonsense. The genealogies of Jesus, both Matthew's version and Luke's, are pious fiction. Nazareth did not
exist in the 1st century AD – the area was a burial ground of rock-cut tombs.
With multiple authors behind the original gospel story it is no surprise that the figure of "Jesus" is a mess of contradictions. Yet the story is so
thinly drawn that being a "good Christian" might mean almost anything.
The 12 disciples are as fictitious as their master, invented to legitimise the claims of the early churches. The original Mary was not a virgin, that
idea was borrowed from pagan goddesses. The pagan world knew all about virgins getting pregnant by randy gods: The Mythical "Virgin Mother".
Perhaps the member 7 years ago should have "camouflaged" his/her link. But, folks, this is really pertinent stuff. Those of you who pay attention
to the random stuff I say on these boards know that I had opinions....and now, I totally feel like (due to the Enlightenment of those others on ATS) I
knew even less than I thought I knew!!
I would like to reopen this dialogue re Kenneth Humphreys' website. I think he makes very good sense.
