Story of Jesus Christ was a HOAX

Quote:Story of Jesus Christ was a HOAX designed to control the people, Biblical scholar claims  

THE man and story behind Jesus Christ was a Roman hoax designed to control the people, a scholar has sensationally claimed.

Christianity is a baseless religion that was designed by the Roman empire to justify slavery and pacify the citizens, according to controversial Biblical scholar Joseph Atwill.

In a blog on his website Mr Atwill wrote: "Christianity may be considered a religion, but it was actually developed and used as a system of mind control to produce slaves that believed God decreed their slavery.”
The scholar argues that at the time, Jewish sects in Palestine were awaiting a ‘warrior Messiah’, which became an increasing problem after the Roman Empire failed to deal with the problem with traditional means.

As a result, the rulers resorted to psychological warfare which would appear to give the citizens what they wanted, while at the same time making sure they followed their rules.


I think that can be true of all religion. Islam arose because the hordes in Arabia were out of control.  Hence the strictures imposed by a leader, Mohamed, such as praying five times per day on pain of eternal damnation, no alcohol and no naughty ladies. Are scammers, Jim Bakker and Joel Osteen, about to lose their meal ticket.
The true purpose of democracy is not to select the best leaders — a clearly debatable obligation — but to facilitate the prompt and peaceful removal of obviously bad ones.

If there is, I will purchase it, I have no use for religion, it has always been the cause of most problems. E.g. Jew vs Muslim, Catholic vs Protestant, etc..

You should have studied psychology and its history. We have always looked to understand why things in the world are the way they are. In prehistory, someone had to figure out when to plant crops for food, so we needed calendars and passed down lore. Way back when, the gods were whimsical and did what they did whenever they chose with no sense of order to what happened. After awhile things started to be cyclical and people became more regimented. When a drought occurred, farmers danced to the weather gods to induce rain. We've always needed some semblance of rationality in our lives, and religion gave what was needed. Its not a hoax - but a necessity. of human nature. Christianity was the first religion that said the Creator was not whimsical, but set up rules that man could learn. Every era had religion because it was needed. As society matured and science started making sense, religion matured also.

How can what happened be a hoax? If you want hoaxes - look at Kwanzaa,
