The Suppression of
That natural law
in the universe of cause and effect has started another
revolution. A revolution so quiet that as yet hardly anyone is
aware of it.
breakthrough came in 1981, when the Law Commission recommended
that the common law offence of Blasphemous Libel should be
abolished. It is because of this law that millions are still
kept in ignorance of the past. Until now any criticism of the
Christian religion, however true, has been almost completely
eliminated from the mass media.
however much it is suppressed, must eventually surface. Over the
years many brave men and women have tried to tell it, but not
until now has there been a significant breakthrough. The B.B.C.
have allowed a thirteen-part serial called 'Cosmos' to be shown
on television. This, together with a best-selling book, has now
made clear to millions all over the world, beyond any doubt,
that the so-called Establishment have concealed known historical
facts from being freely available to the majority of people.
conclusively what modern historians have known for many years,
that it was the Christians who were solely responsible for
plunging the world into the Dark Ages. Many of the Christian
Saints and historical Greats, but thankfully with some notable
exceptions, were ignorant, evil, homicidal maniacs: in exactly
the same mould as the Pol Pot regime in Cambodia, but
unfortunately on a gigantic scale and totally successful. Every
man, woman and child who dared to challenge any aspect of the
new State Religion of the Roman Empire was brutally dealt with.
Every library and college of learning was closed and every
non-Christian book destroyed, until eventually the Christian
priests were the only people able to read and write. Not even
our early kings had this privilege. In the land of the ignorant,
the man who can read and write is king.
The B.B.C. has
also shown a television series called 'The Borgias' (Pope
Alexander VI, 1492-1503). Millions of people have been shocked
as they watched this terrible story unfold before their eyes. So
many imagined the Popes of old to be similar to the kind men
that have held office in recent years. If only this were so.
Many were much worse than Alexander VI. Pope Innocent Ill
(1198-1216) and many others were responsible for the most
appalling crimes. These evil men ruled the known world as
dictators with the same power as any Roman Emperor.
When Rome fell
to the Christian Visigoths (A.D. 410) they did not destroy any
churches. They fell at the feet of Pope Innocent I, worshipping
him as God's representative on earth. The light of knowledge was
extinguished from Christendom. Superstition took the place of
the pursuit of knowledge. Ignorance and corruption reigned
supreme for a thousand years.
What follows is
an attempt to highlight the main points of the research carried
out by the modern philosopher Arthur Findlay, who died in 1964.
There is no such
thing as the Christian Religion. The whole edifice is a priestly
invention. Scholars have failed completely to find one iota of
original thought. Every single item was copied from much older
religions and philosophies.
At first sight
this statement seems outrageous, just as stupid as Copernicus's
theory that the sun does not travel round the earth every day.
But in history, as in nature, things are very often completely
opposite to what they seem.
Professor of History of Christianity at the Sorbonne, Paris, in
his work 'Jesus', which he published in 1935, remarks:
"All that can be
legitimately sought for in the gospels is the material of the
earliest history of Christian dogma, not that of the life of
Jesus, of the latter they tell us absolutely nothing. There is
not the slightest doubt that Jesus never uttered the discourses
attributed to him by the gospels. They are artificial
compositions. Even the Sermon on the Mount is no exception to
If this was the
opinion of one man it would hardly be worth quoting, but it is
the conclusion of every unbiased researcher who has ever made a
deep study of the subject. These men and women have been denied
access to the mass media, and this includes the national press,
for reasons that are now becoming clear. They have only been
able to write books and lecture to small audiences.
Carl Sagan are eager to share their knowledge of the treatment
that their early pioneers received from the religious, power
hungry fanatics. This was made clear on television, and he
writes in 'Cosmos':
scientist who worked in the library (of Alexandria) was a
mathematician, astronomer, physicist and head of the Neoplatonic
school of philosophy. An extraordinary range of accomplishments
for any individual in any age. Her name was Hypatia. She was
born in Alexandria in 370 A.D, at a time when women had few
options and were treated as property.... The growing Christian
Church was consolidating its power and attempting to eradicate
pagan influence and culture. Hypatia stood at the epicenter of
these mighty social forces.
Archbishop of Alexandria, despised her because of her close
friendship with the Roman governor, and because she was a symbol
of learning and science, which were largely identified by the
early Church with paganism. In great danger, she continued to
teach and publish, until, in the year 415, on her way to work
she was set upon by a fanatical mob of Cyril's parishioners.
They dragged her from her chariot, tore off her clothes, and,
armed with abalone shells, flayed her flesh from her bones. Her
remains were burned, her works obliterated, her name forgotten.
Cyril was made a saint."
This was not an
isolated incident but one small part of a vast programme of
genocide, skilfully organized and executed, that was to last
right up to the nineteenth century.
'country people' because logically the people who lived in the
country were the last to be forced to accept the new
all-embracing religion. The derogatory term 'paganism' has had
the desired effect of making people imagine wild, grovelling,
painted savages but then they must include Pythagoras and
Eratosthenes, the man who proved the earth was round over one
thousand five hundred years before the Renaissance scientists.
is it any wonder historians and scientists are getting angry now
that they realize how the truth is still withheld from the vast
majority of people?

A man called
Saul of Tarsus (Saint Paul) said he saw a ghost on the road to
Damascus. So what? People are reporting such events every day
and are not believed. Why should we believe this man Saul of
Tarsus? The people of Tarsus worshipped the saviour-god
Dionysus. All Saul did was attribute the myths associated with
this god to a non-historical wandering Jewish holy man, called
Jeshuah, whom he called Christ. (Jesus is a Greek translation of
the common Jewish name Jeshuah).
Jesus, the Jewish teacher and healer, with Christ, the pagan
saviour-god, is a gross historical blunder. Jesus was officially
made into a god at the Council of Nicaea in A.D. 325. The second
person in a trinity of gods."
non-Christian historians seem to agree that Saint Paul's
epistles are the earliest writings connected with Jesus, but
Paul came onto the scene long after the reported death of Jesus.
There is no record of anything Paul wrote. The Christian
historian Paul Johnson, writing in his book 'A History of
Christianity' in 1976 said that many epistles accredited to Paul
are acknowledged as fakes.

striking example of the hatred between two sects of

concerning the meaning of the dogma for which Christ stands.
The word Christ
has a savage history; it simply means 'the anointed one'. The
earlier saviour-gods, connected with ancestor worship, were
covered in oil to make them cook and taste better for their
followers to eat. It then being the prevailing belief that by
eating the sacrificed body, the virtue, the strength or
everlasting life of the victim would be transferred to the
communicant. The word Christ is cannibalistic in origin. The
Eucharist (eating the flesh and drinking the blood) was the
principal rite in most ancient pagan religions. This ceremony
was known to the Greeks as the Eukharista, and much revered.
Christ is the
last of seventeen saviour-gods known to history with many almost
identical stories attached to each. Born of virgin mothers, only
sons of God, humble birthplace with star above for guiding wise

Belief in a
saviour-god is immoral, and has been the cause of untold misery,
as it does not matter what diabolical crime is committed; all
one has to do to enter heaven is ask your saviour-god's
forgiveness and the slate will be wiped clean. This is why it's
so easy for fanatical believers in priestcraft to leave bombs in
crowded places. Remember, the recent massacre in Beirut was
carried out by Christians. In contrast to this the ancient
Greek, and our own philosophers, teach that we are accountable
for all our thoughts and actions.

about him were written by his followers years after he was
supposed to have been killed.
PHILO was born in 30 B.C. and died in A.D. 54. He lived in
Alexandria and took a great interest in Jewish affairs,
contributing over a hundred books on the history of thought of
particularly interested in Jewish religious thought, and yet he
makes not a single mention of Jesus or any of his followers.
This silence of Philo is proof, if such is needed, that the
gospel stories are composed mostly of myths and legends, which
were evolved at a later date. If they had been history, Philo
would have been sure to have referred to Jesus, because what the
gospels say Jesus preached would have greatly interested him,
and he would have been enthusiastic to have found that the
Messiah he was awaiting had actually come to earth.

reference in his book 'Jewish Antiquities' is accepted by
scholars as a flagrant interpolation.

his book, 'The Apostolical Fathers' states that there cannot be

veneration, at least with little less respect than the writings
contained in the New Testament.
qualifications did this handful of priests at Carthage have for
making such an important decision? The identities of the writers
of the four gospels chosen are unknown. The first gospel, called
'Mark', scholars date about A.D. 90, 'Luke' and 'Matthew' few
years later, and 'John', well into the second century.
Harnack, the famous 19th century scholar, discarded the gospel
called John, as a late production and unhistorical. Professor
Burkitt, Cambridge University, writes in his book 'Jesus Christ,
An Historical Outline':
"The contents of
the gospel of John do not seem historical at all and I greatly
doubt whether we can distinguish often in that gospel what is
derived from tradition and what is derived from imagination."
Quote from James
H. Baxter, professor of ecclesiastical history at St. Andrew's
University, in 'Christianity in the Light of the Modern
popular interpretation and practice of Christianity, the effect
of its establishment as the state religion had been profound. If
Paganism had been destroyed, it was less through annihilation
than through absorption. Almost all that was Pagan was carried
over to survive under a Christian name. Deprived of demi-gods
and heroes, men easily and half unconsciously invested a local
martyr with their attributes, and labelled the local statue with
his name, transferring to him the cult and mythology associated
with the Pagan Deity. Before the fourth century was over the
martyr-cult was universal.... Pagan festivals were renamed, and
Christmas Day, the ancient festival of the sun, was transformed
into the birthday of Jesus."
Why should this
information only be available to a small, elite group of
intellectuals? The answer is obvious. Fear! Fear of the wrath
and action of the great multitude of humanity when the truth is
known. What right has an unelected body of people to set
themselves up as self-appointed censors, deciding what we should
and should not be told? But the longer the people are deceived,
the greater the reaction. This natural law applies to all
totalitarian regimes and is not only confined to religion.
In the sixth
century the four gospels that were chosen at the Council of
Carthage, together with the epistles, became mixed up with the
Jewish religion. In the Old Testament there are thirty-nine
separate references to the 'sweet savour' or savoury dish, which
the priests offered of Jehovah. It is a sacrificial religion.
The Vicious God of the Jews now became the God of the
Christians. This ancient, unhistorical record of a very savage,
stone-age people was also claimed to be the word of God. While
in captivity in Egypt the Jews copied the Egyptian belief in the
resurrection of the physical body. Those who have had the
misfortune to attend a Christian funeral and see the misery of
the mourners will bear witness to the effect of this cause. If
only the Christians had copied one of the other religions or
philosophies that teach our souls are immediately reunited with
our loved ones at so-called death, instead of the terrifying
prospect of lying in peace and rotting in the earth until an
unspecified Judgement day. But alas, the damage was done. Even
now people still believe in this nonsense.

from an Anglican Lord Bishop actually agreeing with me, that the

Jesus was reported to have said on the cross:
"This day you
will be with me in paradise."
This day, not in
a thousand years' time or whenever. I dislike quoting from the
Bible because if you accept the good parts, what about the bad,
were these not also written by God? In the next few pages are
listed a number of these passages. My critics will say that they
are taken out of context. This argument can easily be settled by
the reader checking each reference.
In April 1987,
'The Sunday Telegraph' published a Gallup Poll showing that 39%
believe the New Testament is of divine authority. 34% believe
the Old Testament to be divine. One can only imagine what these
figures would have been one hundred years ago, bearing in mind
that it was compulsory to attend church services in the early
nineteenth century. This law, of course, was impossible to
enforce after the Industrial Revolution, when hundreds of
thousands flocked to the cities. The following passages, surely
inserted by evil fanatics, are now acutely embarrassing to the
Church and are never quoted. This was not so even a few years
ago. These passages were the main weapons of the priests in
keeping their flocks in order, through fear. They were also
responsible for all the torture and killing. The Christians
seriously believed they were carrying out their God's
instructions. The curse of ignorance is indeed mankind's

people against the Jews, this appalling tragedy might never have

enslave negroes had divine sanction. What could be clearer or
more definite than this?:

the heathen that are round about you; of them shall ye buy
bondmen and bondmaids. Moreover, of the children of the
strangers that do sojourn among you, of them shall ye buy, and
of their families that are with you, which they begat in your
land; and they shall be your possession. And ye shall take them
as an inheritance for your children after you, to inherit them
for a possession; they shall be your bondmen forever."
(Leviticus 25; 44-46)
In 1729 there
was a pang of conscience, but the Attorney-General and the
Solicitor-General declared that slaves under British bondage
anywhere need not be released when they became Christians.
Wilberforce, Fox, Thomas Paine and others succeeded to abolish
slavery. This was against fierce opposition from the Church. The
Pope excommunicated every Roman Catholic who took a stand for
abolition, and ordered every book written in its favour to be
burned. The slave trade is another first class example of the
law of cause and effect. We are now reaping the results of the
crop sown by our ignorant ancestors. Slavery was not completely
abolished in the British Empire until 1843. It was in this
climate, when little children were hung for petty theft, that
Karl Marx made his protest. To equate his policies today, in a
land with universal suffrage, is an insult to this man.
In the first
"Mail on Sunday" one of our country's leading philosophers,
Professor A.J. Ayer, was reported to have described Christianity
as morally outrageous and intellectually contemptible. It is
nothing short of scandalous that our modern philosophers are not
allowed to let the majority of the public share their
conclusions. When it comes to the deep fundamental reasons for
our existence on earth the people are only allowed to hear the
opinions of ignorant, ancient simpletons masquerading under the
Christian religion. This is a ludicrous state of affairs and is
no doubt the reason why the Law Commission recommended that the
law of blasphemous libel should be abolished in the first place.

lack of ethical teaching. It does not help one morally to be

Much more in the
same strain could be quoted, but this should suffice. What a
contrast to the beautiful and noble sentiments uttered by Marcus
Aurelius, Senaca, and other 'Pagan' philosophers, whom stupid
and intolerant Christians have always classed amongst the damned
quotations from the Christian Bible fresh in the mind, it is
worth comparing with the following words spoken by a
contemporary philosopher - a man who has been likened unto the
Devil by leading Churchmen, and whose teachings, as the law
stands at the moment, will never be allowed to be heard on
television, radio or in the national papers, even though he has
written a number of books.
This is how the
philosopher Silver Birch answers the following question:
How would you
explain God to children?
"That is not a
difficult task if the one who is to do the explaining has a
clear conception of the power which is behind all life. For
myself, I would point to the divine artistry of nature's
handiwork. I would point to the stars, the diamonds in the sky.
I would point to the glory of the sun, to the pale reflection of
the moon. I would point to the whispering, murmuring breeze, to
the nodding pines. I would point to the trickling stream and the
mighty ocean. I would touch every facet of nature showing how
each is controlled by purpose, by law. I would add that where
man has made any discovery in the field of natural life, he
finds it comes within the orbit of law, that its growth is
controlled and regulated, that it is part of one vast,
intricate, yet harmonious pattern, that order reigns supreme
throughout the vast universe, controlling planets and insects,
storms and breezes, all life, no matter how variegated its
expressions may be."
"And then I
would say, the mind behind all that, the power that sustains it
all, the force that controls the whole vast panorama of the
universe and many other worlds that you have not yet seen, is
what we call God."
This is how this
'Devil' Birch answers the following question:
When is the best
time of day to pray or meditate?
"In the morning,
when the sun rises across the hills and birds sing."
"In the silence
of the morning and in its beauty, when the dew lies upon the
flower shalt thou come to me and I shall dwell with thee. In the
evening when the lark up in the sky trill forth its last note,
for the last time stretch its wing on high, when the moon shall
rise and the sun shall dip beneath the hills in all its
splendour, then in that hour of concentration I will be with
Christians also copied many of the inspired higher teachings of
the early philosophers. However much of the Bible may be
examined by its critics, these magnificent codes of conduct,
common to all mankind, will always come shining through, but
when it comes to moral codes of ethics the Greek and Roman
philosophers were in a class of their own, not to mention the
far older teachings accredited to Krishna (The Hindu Christ),
Gautama (The Buddha) and Confucius. Even a cursory glance at
classical literature will confirm this. But if Christians are
taught from birth that these people are ignorant pagans, just
think how many have been denied this knowledge.
A person of any
race or religion, believer or non-believer, can be loving, kind
and unselfish, and have all the attributes that would come under
the heading of righteous person.
If only Churches
and schools would stop threatening that we have no chance of
reaching heaven unless we believe in certain ancient doctrines
and dogma, what power they could have for teaching righteousness
were not qualified to invent a religion. There is a power in the
universe that creates galaxies and puts life onto planets, but
the nature of this power is completely beyond the comprehension
of our most brilliant scientists and philosophers, who have the
benefit of the accumulated knowledge of mankind.
A number of
professors who worked on the Plowden report suggested that
instead of one religion being given in schools, as a historical
fact, philosophy should be taught incorporating all the world's
religions, together with the conclusions of ancient, but more
importantly, contemporary philosophers.
It is obviously
not possible to list all the evidence that non-Christian
historians have gathered, but the following dates and Christian
Councils are important.
In the fourth
century it is estimated that there were 156 different Christian
sects all insisting that their ideas were correct. The Roman
Emperor decided that an all-embracing doctrine had to be
formulated. All the bishops were ordered to attend the Council
THE COUNCIL OF
NICAEA A.D. 325
Arguably, AD 325
is the most important date in the history of human development,
because from this meeting of ignorant priests came the tragedy
entitled 'Christian Civilisation' which eventually embraced a
third of mankind. No decision, no battle, no edict ever had such
an effect on history, as had the majority decision of this
council. It is not difficult to understand why, even today,
Christian historians avoid this date like the plague.
It was ordered
by Emperor Constantine 'The Great', a most unsavoury character.
The encyclopedia says he murdered his son, his wife and later a
nephew. At Nicaea the Christian belief was at long last defined
and put into words. New words were employed for old theological
ideas, which for centuries had been used in pagan theology.
Christians now knew for what their faith stood in the opinions
of the Emperor and the majority of the bishops. What came to be
called Catholic (all-embracing) Christianity was now formulated
and definitely established as the State Church of the Roman
Empire. All who did not accept the Nicaean definition were
banished or put to death.
qualifications did these men, living in the fourth century, have
for making this tragic decision? Surely any conclusions put
forward by men who thought the sun circled a fiat earth and that
Jerusalem was the centre of the universe, must be looked into
very carefully before they are believed? Briefly, Jesus was
officially elevated to the position of pagan saviour-god and a
member of a trinity of gods, an ancient Egyptian belief.
writes in his book 'The Curse of Ignorance':
"A careful study
of the history of Christian Civilisation reveals the terrible
conditions in which the people lived, but where in any history
book do we find a finger pointing to the event which brought
about this state of affairs? That is the decision reached at The
Council of Nicaea in A.D. 325, which raised the Christian Church
to the position of the State Church of the Roman Empire. This
was the greatest and most tragic event in history. Instead of
the world being guided by the thoughts of the great philosophers
of Greece and Rome, its most virile inhabitants fell, under the

THE COUNCIL OF
CONSTANTINOPLE A.D. 381
The Nicene creed
was altered by the Council. Emperor Theodosis decreed that all
who did not accept the new Nicene creed were to be considered as
traitors to the state and liquidated, and this is exactly what
happened right up to the last century. Religious history is a
tale of imprisonment, banishment and slaughter. Priests
everywhere were appointed as informers, to become known as
Inquisitors of the Faith. Heretics, Jews and witches, all in
fact who did not conform to the orthodox teaching of the Church,
were slaughtered, and the roll of victims runs into millions.
historian, in 'The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire' making
use of the figures supplied by Eusebius A.D. 265-340 (the early
Christian historian) which would certainly not err on the side
of under-estimation, computes that in all the persecution of the
Christians by the Pagans a number not greatly exceeding two
thousand suffered death. He contrasts this with the millions who
were put to death by the Christian Church as heretics and in
consequence of religious wars throughout the Christian era. This
historian, for instance, refers to the fact that during the
reign of Charles V over one hundred thousand victims perished in
the Netherlands alone in consequence of Christian persecution,
and that this is only a small fraction of the sum total of
victims who fell before the ferocity of the Christian Church
throughout its reign as Dictator of Christendom.
THE COUNCIL OF
EPHESUS A.D. 431
A resolution was
carried at this Council that Mary conceived Jesus as a result of
the action of the Holy Ghost, and that she was the mother of
God. This decision in time raised another problem, as to how
Jesus could be born without sin from a human mother. This was
eventually rectified in 1845 when the Pope announced that Mary
was also born as a result of the action of the Holy Ghost.
THE COUNCIL OF
TOLEDO A.D. 589
It was decided
here that the Holy Ghost proceeded from the Father and from the
Son. This was not adopted until 1054. This decision split the
Christian Church in two.
The Latin word 'filioque'
meaning 'and from the Son' was added to the creed. This innocent
little word was to cause the death of countless people.

had once been men; a slow but steady awakening had taken
place. The people were coming to realise the folly and
absurdity of the beliefs of their ancestors. Evemerus did to
Greek mythology what Thomas Paine and Voltaire did to
Christian theology when they startled the religious world,
at the end of the eighteenth century, with the assertion
that Jesus had never been more than a human being, a man
like other men. Evemerus ushered in the age of scepticism to
Pagan mythology as did Paine and Voltaire to Christian
theology. He put a check on god-making, so much so that

Christ, both produced in the first century of the Christian

By the 3rd century B.C. anatomy had revealed something of
the workings of the human body and under the direction of
two famous anatomists, Herophilus and Erasistratus, surgery
was becoming a science. However, the Christian belief in the
resurrection of the body brought investigation to an end
until the 17th century, because to tamper with a corpse
would mean that a mutilated body would arise on the

them falsehoods about the wonders Christianity had done for

darkness and wickedness, but now we know that this religion

such a crime?
of Caesar Augustus is a historical fact. This took place ten
years after the death of Herod, in whose reign Matthew and
Luke state that Jesus was born. No Roman census would make
people travel back to the place they came from. Only people
quite ignorant of Roman rule could believe such impossible
stories. To try to get a balanced view I have written many
letters to theologians asking for their comments on all the
controversial points raised in this paper. The silence has
been deafening except for a Baptist minister who thought the
anomaly about King Herod was because of confusion when the
Christian calendar was drawn up at the beginning of the
eighth century. He also thought the massacre of the infants
was a small localized event and therefore did not come to
the attention of the historians.
Augustine was born. Malcolm Muggeridge and many other highly

for this man. One can only conclude that they have not read

what this Christian historian says about the most famous
early Church father:

army persecuted the Donatist Church, unorthodox Christians)
"The Donatist Church was broken by force." (This was one of
the 156 Christian sects I have mentioned previously) "There
were many cases of mass suicide." "Augustine watched the
process dry-eyed." "State torture.... was in fact employed
whenever the State willed."

was not the Church entitled to do the same and more for its
own far greater ones?'. He not only accepted, he became the
theorist of persecution; and his defences were later to be
those on which all defences of the inquisition rested."

'Compel them to come in'. Arthur Findlay says:
Nazis, the Church in the 4th century started off its
inglorious career by being organised by a triumvirate made
up of Augustine, Jerome and Ambrose, who launched the
Christian totalitarian form of rule on Christendom. The
malignant part played by them, in using every priestly
invention to strangle all freedom of thought, will some day
be appreciated, when they will come to be looked upon as
unscrupulous tyrants of the worst type. They were paralleled
in our own times by the Nazi triumvirate in Germany, Hitler,
Goebbels and Himmler. They managed to maintain a
strangle-hold over the German people, the only difference
being that the Christian grip lasted 150 times longer.
Augustine, the intolerant ruthless aggressor, corresponds to
Hitler; Goebbels, the liar and falsifier of the truth, to
Jerome; and Ambrose, the inquisitor, to the cruel and
birthday was decided as 25th December, the same as the
sun-god Mithra (winter solstice) and many other
begin. Arthur Findlay says:-
conflict was not against the things that are evil, not
against cruelty, poverty, crime, injustice, intolerance and
all unrighteousness, but against a nation of unbelievers in
the Holy Trinity which was in possession of a piece of
ground wherein Helena, the mother of Constantine, said the
body of a member of that Trinity was buried. Her information
was valueless, as it had been obtained by means of bribery
and corruption. No one has the faintest idea where the body
of Jesus was buried. The whole extraordinary story of his
burial and resurrection being the repetition of an ancient
myth, belonging to earlier saviour-god religions."
massacres by the Crusaders are well known and modern
theologians now condemn them as they do the killings of the
Spanish inquisition. But how many people know about:
Children's Crusade? One of the worst crimes ever perpetrated
by the fanatics in Rome. 50,000 little boys and girls were
brought to Marseilles and ports in Italy. Few of the
children ever returned from this insane expedition.
Thousands died of disease. Many were captured and made
against the unorthodox Christians of Southern France. (Cathars
or Albigense people mentioned by Carl Sagan in 'Cosmos').
Pope Innocent Ill's army, led by Saint Dominic, massacred
hundreds of thousands of men, women and children. Remember,
nobody but priests could read and write, not even the kings.
They all took the priest's word that it was their God's wish
to kill all heretics. If any souls are going to rot in

famous 'witch' Joan of Arc was burnt at the stake. It is
estimated that the Christians tortured to death, burnt or
drowned 250,000 so-called witches. We now know that many of
the people thought of as witches were in fact mediums -
people with the wonderful gift of being able to communicate
with others who are living in the etheric world. The tragedy
is that mediumship is an inherited gift, like music. This is
the reason why there are so few outstanding mediums today.

destroyed by the Christians). His findings were not
published until he was on his death bed, for fear of the
Church's wrath. Later Galileo was tried and punished because
Church lore holds that the sun circles the earth. Galileo
was made to recant under the threat of imprisonment and
thirty-nine articles of religion adopted. Every Church of
England priest from that day to this has sworn before God
that he believes every one of these assertions. These have
got to be seen to be believed.

priest Alessandro Valignano made the following statement:

House, which was founded by Henry VIII for the purpose of
accommodating the Trinity brethren, whose duty it was to
pray for the souls of all who were lost at sea. In return
for this effort they were given the salvage of all wrecks
around our coast. The more wrecks there were the more they
earned and for this reason they objected to anything being
done to reduce the number.
La Barre failed to doff his hat in respect while a religious
procession passed through the streets of Abbeville (it was
raining). He was charged and convicted of blasphemy and
sentenced to 'The Torture Ordinary and Extraordinary', his
hands to be cut off, his tongue torn out with pincers, and
burned alive. Now that the people are being told the true
nature of Christian civilisation, they will be able to
understand the driving force behind the writings of Voltaire
and Thomas Paine.
Lancaster started the first school for the children of the
poor. (Secular education)
Education Bill passed through the House of Commons, but the
bishops in the House of Lords raised so much opposition that
it was thrown out. So ended the first attempt by the state
to educate its children.
Whitbread's Education Bill, Davies Giddy M.P. said:-
specious in theory the project might be of giving education
to the labouring classes of the poor, it would be
prejudicial to their morals and happiness; it would teach
them to despise their lot in life, instead of making them
good servants in agriculture and other laborious
employments. Instead of teaching them subordination, it
would render them fractious and refractory ... It would
enable them to read seditious pamphlets; vicious books and
publications against Christianity; it would render them
insolent to their superiors, and in a few years the
legislature would find it necessary to direct the strong arm
of power towards them."
England set up first schools as a rival to Joseph
Lancaster's secular education. Under the direction of a
priest named Andrew Bell. 'The National Society for the
Education of the poor in the Principles of the Established
Church'. Bell announced that he did not desire to instruct
the lower classes in the art of writing or arithmetic,
because it would:-

mosques, synagogues, temples and schools, especially in

abattoirs of the mind, intent on indoctrination rather than
teaching righteousness and the pursuit of truth, knowledge and
therefore wisdom. Outside of the few moral codes of ethics
contained in all religions and philosophies, we have nothing to

been presented with such an exciting opportunity to add

This is what the
Rt. Rev. Mervyn Stockwood, Lord Bishop of Southwark, writing in
1973, said about this suppressed report:

years preceding the war, the Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr. Cosmo
Lang, set up a commission to inquire into these matters. The
report of the commission has never been published. The official
reason for this curious fate is that the war made it

thought that the reverse would have been the case. In times of
national emergency, and especially at that time, with the
destructive forces of Adolf Hitler massed against us, men are
readier to consider the prospect of death and what, if anything,
may lie beyond. It happened that some years ago I obtained a
copy of the report and, having read it, I believe that the
reason for its non-publication was the timidity of Archbishop
Lang and his colleagues. They preferred to conceal the report
rather than face its implications. This timidity is
characteristic not only of churchmen but of many others. They
fear that if they show sympathy, they may be regarded as quacks.
I remember a distinguished physiologist at Cambridge telling me
that he would have nothing to do with psychical research; he
refused to read its books, be present at its meetings, or take
part in its tests, as the whole subject was taboo and not
intended for serious minds. I suppose he would have said much
the same about landings on the moon had he lived a hundred years
The reason why
the Christian Church is terrified of this information reaching
the public is because every time anybody from the next world
speaks to us through a medium the message is always the same:
"It does not
matter in the slightest what you believe, it is how you have
behaved during your short stay on earth that counts."
Is it any wonder
the priests are keen to keep this quiet?
