Once again, a new book is being released by that proves that Jesus Christ didn't exist! Yes, once again we are being treated to the idea that the historical Jesus is nothing but a fraud perpetrated upon society for the past 2,000 years. According to the news release from PR Web, a new book entitled Dead Little Fish: The Accidental History of Jesus Christ, by author Derek Murphy, "proves that Jesus Christ was a mythological figure that accidentally became mistaken for a real man."
Articles and TV programs about the historical Jesus are finding their way into every sphere of consumer culture, and public opinion is quickly embracing new ideas about Jesus. Scholars like Baigent, Pagels, (The Gnostic Gospels), and Timothy Freke (The Jesus Mysteries), while popular, are ignoring crucial evidence that radically re-defines the origins of Christianity: Jesus, and his consort Mary Magdalene, stem from an ancient mythological tradition and were originally never considered as real people.
When we stop looking for the historical Jesus, it becomes blazingly obvious that Jesus Christ is a spiritual metaphor, which developed out of a long history of religious mythology. "Dead Little Fish" exposes the accidental roots of Christianity, by tracing its development from Greek mystery cults, pagan sun myths, and ancient philosophy. "Dead Little Fish" proves that the first Christians believed in Jesus only as a spiritual entity, and he was later, mistakenly viewed as a real man.
While most books on Christian history are making guesses about the real Jesus, the mystery behind the lack of evidence, "Jesus Didn't Exist!" shows conclusively how to interpret the symbols in the story of Jesus Christ. It provides many new insights, a comprehensive overview of Christian beginnings, and a well-documented yet easy to digest manuscript. It is also the first book to clearly detail the constellation mythology which developed directly into biblical stories.
Scholars like Baigent, whose book The Jesus Papers has been appropriately ridiculed on this blog? Like Pagels, who has pretty much admitted that she attends a church even though she never had any belief that it was true? Like Freke, whose book The Jesus Mysteries has been rated "abject nonsense" by Tekton Apologetics? While Pagels has at least authored some books of substance relating to the time period in which Jesus lived, authors like these have largely proven time and again that they have nothing of substance to add to this discussion.
So, obviously, being released by a major publisher, this book must have some substance behind it, right? Let's see, it's published by . . . uh, the author. Yep, another self-published book proving that the consensus view held by virtually all historians that Jesus was a real person is wrong. Give me a break. I guess all of you people who yelp loudly that Intelligent Design hasn't published peer reviewed papers in legitimate journals of science will immediately disavow this book as trash on that basis alone, right?
Anyway, with so many good books to read about legitimate subjects, I know I'm not going to waste my time with this, and I hope none of the rest of you do, either.
