This should be great. But of course the Christian community will deny it. They will say it’s the work of the Devil trying to lure people away from believing in God. No matter what substantial evidence Atwill or anyone else in the world has found, believers will ignore it. Some will violently deny it. They will cling to their silly beliefs because they are afraid of death and no longer existing. The belief in this Jesus is also a guilt reliever. A symbol that no matter what they do, no matter how shitty they behave, no matter how raunchy their thoughts, they will be forgiven by their imaginary superfriend trio. Without Jesus, it sort of undoes their Trinity heros now, doesn’t it. I am very, very interested in what Joseph Atwill will present to the world about Jesus.
On Oct. 19, self-professed Biblical scholar Joseph Atwill is planning to make public some very flammable allegations. At a day-long symposium called “Covert Messiah” in London, England, he’s set to unveil purported evidence that Roman aristocrats manufactured Jesus Christ – a claim that, if substantiated, would devalue the core of the Christian faith.
The only problem? Most Biblical experts disagree with the scholar’s pronouncements.
A press release announcing the purported new evidence claims that Atwill has discovered “ancient confessions” that purportedly prove that Romans invented Jesus Christ in the first century. He has long argued that the faith system was used as a political tool to control the masses — something he says is still going on today.
“I present my work with some ambivalence, as I do not want to directly cause Christians any harm, but this is important for our culture,” he said of the alleged debunk – one that he believes will eventually be universally accepted.
