Another Specious Claim By Acharya S?

Recommended Posts

post-1612-0-60141500-1289482475_thumb.jpgOn page 297 of "The Christ Conspiracy", this pic is shown. The reference is Barbara Walker, The Women's Dictionary of Symbols and Sacred Objects, Harper, 1988.

 

 

 

Without buying Walker's book myself, I seriously doubt this statue exists. Although I do not know for certain (perhaps someone can elaborate), I have a feeling the word "cock" meaning penis and "cock" meaning a male rooster, is only similar in english, so this similarity is the same as claiming that the "son" of god is the same thing as the "Sun god". Or something similar...

PLEASE EXCUSE THE ANNOYING COMMERCIAL BREAKS IN THE CONVERSATION:

As with everything these days, the cost of keeping the Ex-C forum up and running has been rising. Inflation? In part, but the primary reason is this: As participation in the forums grows, costs increase. The Ex-C forums will remain free of charge to everyone, but if you believe this little corner of the Internet provides value to you or others, and you feel inclined to help keep us online, please consider making a one-time donation or becoming a regular contributor. Contribution options appear under the "Upgrade" link above, and can be accessed by clicking here.

Oh, and as an incentive (no, you won't be given any bogus promises of eternal bliss), if you do become a regular contributor by signing up for any monthly or yearly patron package, this annoying ADVO will disappear.

And now, back to the regularly scheduled conversation...

Unless a verifiable picture of said bust is produced, be highly suspicious of the claim.

But Acharya S says it's true!! You are just a misogynist who fell for the lies that are spread about her!!!! [/sarcasm]

:lmao:

 

 

I wonder what Thor will say about this. I assume it's that we all should be taking this drawing as evidence of this statue's existence because the holy Acharya has printed it!! lol!

Oh no, not this dead horse again. I suppose you haven't followed the back and fourth with Bart Ehrman enough to know where it led and what happened in the end. Here's a brief blog about it if you're interested in knowing:
