Why Jesus Never Existed

  • Sac State University Union

    6000 J St., Sacramento, CA (map)

    38.565666 -121.425636

  • The Secular Student Alliance at Sacramento State is hosting a FREE event featuring Dr. Richard Carrier and David Fitzgerald.

    Jesus may not have been the Son of God, but there was a guy called Jesus...right? If not, then where did the first stories about him come from?

    When: 6pm
    Where: The Redwood Room, 1st Floor of the Union

    Parking

    Daily parking passes are available for $6 from the yellow dispenser in the parking structure (on the 3rd floor, west corner by the elevator), adjacent to the University Union and Bookstore. I strongly recommend parking in the parking structure, because it is close to the event and the other parking lots are for staff parking. Plan on arriving early to find a spot.

    Daily parking passes may also be purchased using the iPhone/Android app Pay-by-Phone. Enter Sac State's code 5115 and enter in the license plate number. No pass needs to be displayed once parked.
    The event is in the Hinde Auditorium on the First Floor of the University Union. This map shows how to get to the venue from either entrance to Sac State. Permanent link to map: http://bit.ly/sacstatemap

    Due to some unforeseen organizational changes in the Secular Student Alliance at Sacramento State, the event is being postponed. We hope to bring it back very soon.

    Thanks Brian, i didn't realize that there was a link to just part 1. I don't buy into the conspiracy theory either but events like that do help justify agenda's and they took full advantage. The financial part was pretty interesting and i think there is a lot of truth there but what really blew me away was that Jesus never existed and that was the last piece of the puzzle for me.

      my intent was not to censor the other parts, (quite worth seeing I think) or the lenghty intro, but as new versions of ZG have dropped the original section on religion this is a good clip to share.
      Is the official 9/11 story a religion for you? It seem to be for a lot of people.

      I'm not sure if there's hidden details about 9/11, but it's certainly possible. It appears that the Feds knew about the attack on Pearl Harbor & let it happen as an excuse to enter the war. Seeing as how the Iraq war was totally unnecessary & just killing for profit for Bush & Cheney's accomplices at Halliburton, Blackwater, etc. it's plausible they knew & let it happen. They, & Clinton before them, had some credible reports about Bin Laden & his plans & did nothing.

    The focus of this seminar in April is on the existence of Jesus so that was the point i was trying to make vs. the other 2 parts but those also relate to religion(s). Most wars and attacks like 9/11 over the years have been religious based, not pointing to any specific religion, just religion in general. Without an afterlife i think people would think twice before pulling the trigger, pushing the button or committing suicide. The one common theme of all religions is an afterlife, i can't think of one that doesn't, so it's a basic form of control. People aren't born to hate, they are raised to hate and religion is the tool used to justify it all.

    Watch "Zeitgeist the movie" You can find it free on youtube (or Netflix).

    The movie pretty much clears up that Jesus never existed. You are correct about Horus and Krishna and there are about a dozen more "Jesus" throughout history. Check it out, not sure about the 2nd and 3rd part of the film but it makes you think and there is a lot of truth in what is said.

    This movie pretty much cleared up the last questions i had about religion in general.

      Excellent movie. It was strange, tho, that the 1st part was a conspiracy theory that Bush/Cheney were responsible for 9/11.

    not on any coins of the era or in other texts ... and he was healing the blind and the rest?

    I'm a Jew by birth, so I never believed in Jesus. After reading about the Egyptian god Horus, the son of god more than 1000 years before Jesus or Christianity, I realize that it's a myth, perhaps part of the collective unconscious of humans.
    I read that Krishna is also the virgin born son of god.
