    I still live the Christian philosophy as it was ingrained in me growing up, by that I mean the character of Jesus in the NT.

  1. I could not rely on my emotion as I had been a RC for 40 years before I cracked open a bible. Then I spent around 15 years reading history of the Egyptians, Greeks and Rome and all of the ME and other religions. Finally I ended up reading Atwill's books and studied Josephus as I had read Josephus before a few times, and I noted so many things, so when I got Caesars Messiah that was it for me. I had to read his books a few times as well. Long process. I hope you are doing well, for me I was devastated and to this day, my friends and family do not know. Then again RC do not talk a lot about it, the converts do though. I so remember when I was living in the bible belt, how they treated RC's and even being back in MI, I have some Baptist who come to my door an tell me how I'm not saved.
  2. Well I have read them all and I am convinced mainly that Caesar Messiah is the closest to the truth. I say this as a cradle RC , and as one who never cracked a bible the first 40 years of my life, as RC's do not need to, but my curiosity got the best of me, and its been a long ride. The secret is to read Caesar Messiah and Shakespeare's Secret Messiah and look up Josephus links. Eleazar is the Jewish Messiah who is a zealot. The home of the zealots was Galilee. He can also cast out demons like King Solomon, Josephus 8.2.5 (Antiquities). Eleazar ben Simon and John of Gischala are both zealots who fought Romans and ended up in Jerusalem The High Priests were pro Roman and they allowed Simon bar Giora , who was head of the Sicarii in to take care of the zealots. The Sicarii were the dagger men who hung out by Jerusalem, and they killed the Pro Jewish jews. Joseph Atwill discusses this in his books.
  3. Its was not enough for me to just say this did not make sense, I wanted it to make sense and now it does, when we compare Titus military excursion to Jesus's ministry.
  4. no question of the NT. One must also read Josephus - War of the Jews as well. its hard I spent many years as a Christian, RC, and then about 15 years ago I started to read the bible and study it and read all the history, and jewish and RC encyclopedias , everything and nothing made sense till reading Caesars Messiah. I had read Josephus earlier but I noted strange coincidences but his book helped me put them together.
  5. turned atheist, and he has lots of good videos on you tube. His story is very good.
  6. I stayed in a bad marriage, physical abuse and cheating for several years because as you know RC's can't get divorced. Glad I came to my senses.
  7. I wish you well, family is important, they will probably say oh your going through a spell,darkness of the soul. They will say I understand , I've had my doubts as well at times. Let us know how it goes. Be easy.
