Jeez, That's an interesting Author choice of the month! And I read the book a couple of years ago!! Found it very interesting and meticulously resarched, although a bit dry at times, still I read it from cover to cover. Now... can my budget stretch to another book this month! Think I'll have to add his latest offering to my 'must buy' list! Greetings to all of you!

Hi Peter and all, Thanks for your response. I've come a cross a book by Louis Jacolliot titled 'Hindoo Origin of Hebrew and Christian Revelation' this is not readily available to the general public and I believe it was first published in the early 1800's (?) Come to think of it, there must be some very interesting scholarly research languishing in antique bookstores, libraries etc. from the ti

Hi Peter, Have you done any research on similarities within gnosticism (early Christianity) and eastern mysticism? It seems there are many similarities within Krishna worship and the Christ myth - do you think perhaps the origin of the Christ myth and similar near eastern myths could have originated in India? F eg. Krishna with his beloved disciple Arjuna (who becomes 'John' in the western ver

Hi all! Thanks for the comments. I have calmed down now... and I will follow the advise to just ignore the posters that I find tiresome and boring. Must admit I'm more of a reader than a poster. I don't really have the time to get drawn into endless discussions about my personal beliefs or non-beliefs. I'm also not as eloquent as some posters on this site whom I find supply better responses

I used to enjoy visiting this website and reading the various message boards. But from now on I'm going to stay away... Most of the boards seem to be full of Evangelical Christian ramblings with the arguments going back and forth. Every now and then someone tries to bring a light of reason and critical thinking into the discussions but is mostly rebutted with the usual - "so it is written&

Hi Ryeruss, Thanks for taking the time to post the info! It sounds like Mr Hubbard borrowed heavily from eastern philosophy (buddhism springs to mind). I've heard about the shocking amounts of money you have to pay for the 'courses' - fools are easily parted with their money!! Sunbeam

Please can someone explain what Scientology is all about. Is it based on any particular organised religion? Is a religion or a philosophy? Their website doesn't tell you anything and all I know is a bunch of famous people are followers. PS. I'm not about to join, just want to know what it's all about :)

Neckties originate in Croatia? So I seem to remember reading somewhere... after some googling found this interesting info on a weblog (ah the wonders of the internet). "As millions around the world dress to go to work each day or to go out for the evening, most probably do not realize that a major accessory of their wardrobe originated in Croatia. The necktie, or kravata, is Croatia's con

Hi Johan, "OK - but is is common only with yongsters - not wit elderly - or with a "academic" - to use that name is not that "civilized". I take it you didn't grow up or live in Sweden then - where I came from it was very common, in no way derogatory - and no I AM NOT UNCIVILIZED :) might not be very highly educated, although I've certainly read my fair share of book

Hi Bent, We also have the word 'janta' (should be a with two dots over the a, don't know how to on an english keyboard), its quite old fashioned though, and may be a regional thing. Also 'tos' (again should be with the two dots over the o). I think we have a lot more in common than we realise... The most commonly used word for 'girl' in swedish would be 'tjej' which I believe may originate f

Sorry to be picky... 'Pojke' (not pojka) is a finnish word which entered the Swedish language during the middle ages. "Men det finns ett antal ord också i det centrala svenska ordförrådet som kommer från finskan. Det mest kända bland dem är väl pojke, som är belagt i svenskan redan på medeltiden men började användas mera allmänt på 1600-talet för att småningom tränga undan andra ord med sa

Hi everyone, Surfing this site when I should be working.... still it is New Years Eve after all. Thanks for the photos, I grew and lived in Gothenburg until my mid twenties, when I moved to the UK. I've only visited Stockholm twice, but it is a beatiful city. I was struck again by the image of the 3 Crowns. Many of you may not know this, but it's the national symbol (heraldic) for the Swedis

Hard to tell from the photo! Cornwall is a supposed to be a hot spot of UFO activity.... apparently you're more likely to spot a UFO here than anywhere else in the UK. Sadly not me though :) There are several military bases here and many sightings have been in the so called Bermuda Triangle of UFO sightings - from Lands End to Hayle and across to Helston.

Hi all, Terrible as this disaster is, we need to get the matter into perspective. How many 100's of thousands of people are killed EVERY day due to man-made disasters. The crisis in Sudan, AIDS, war and conflict - not to mention deaths related to traffic accidents - estimated to have killed more humans on this planet than all wars put together since the time of recorded history.

Evening, Does anyone know the connection (if there is any) between Freemasons and Gnosticism? If the Freemasons practiced this form of Christianity perhaps this would have been the most likely cause for the persecution by the Catholic church in the past? Does anyone have any interesting reading suggestions on this subject? Sunbeam

Wireloop, keep it up!! Don't know why people persist in believing the Bible is a historical document, where is the evidence for that? I blame our educational system... also popular culture is full of historical inaccuracies and fanciful consipracy theories barely masquerading as 'history'. I guess it sells books and keeps some people happy. I've heard people actually do tours around the Lo

You're fighting a losing battle Wireloop debating with confirmed believers, but I do admire your spirit (and totally agree with all your points). IMO the non-existance of a historical Christ is the only logical explanation. Anything else is based on inherited teaching, speculation and wishful thinking. Let them have their dream...

Hi all, Interesting discussion. I've got a question for you all... I'm not very well read when it comes to bible stories, but I seem to remember there are two creation stories in the OT (meaning God creating humans). One where it states something like God created men & women out of dust, and another where woman is supposed to be created out of Adam (rib). It just doesn't seem to follow an

Many years ago I went through a phase of re-curring nightmares, but I thaught myself to wake up from them. The trick I used to wake myself up always worked for me. I simply made myself lie down and go to sleep in my dream and I always woke up straight after. Not long after this, the nightmares stopped and I seemed to be more in control of my dreaming.

Hi all, Some time ago, the supposed ossuary of James brother of Jesus was headlining media world-wide, claimed to be 'the first real evidence of the existance of the historical Jesus' by many journalists. Cynical ploy to extract money from credulous belivers? Greetings!

Hi all - thanks for your comments. Sorry, didn't mean to upset anyone (if I have) I know it may be a controversial subject for some people on this board. Just thought it was interesting (if it's not a hoax). Still think it's about time we had the 'opposite' mythicist view to the whole Gospel story for once spread to a wider audience. After all, there are enough scholarly books written abou

How do you know for sure all Nazis were atheists? A very large proportion of the German population were members of the Nazi party, surely not all of them knew of the horrors or even believed in party doctrine. Germany at the time were in the grip of a dictator ship, hence being a party member would have guaranteed job security etc. Anyway... this link may be of interest! Hitler and the Va

Hi Val, I seriously recommend Yoga! It's helped me tremendously dealing with stress in my present work situation. Practicing Yoga I have to focus on the present moment and not worry about what happend during the day (or what may come tomorrow!). This creates a feeling of calmness which somehow carries over into the next day. Best wishes Sunbeam
