Jesus Christ did not exist

Now, before you get all worked up, check this out

Historical researcher Michael Paulkovich has claimed that Jesus of Nazareth was a ?mythical character? and never existed.

The controversial discovery was apparently made after he found no verifiable mention of Christ from 126 writers during the ?time of Jesus? from the first to third centuries.

He says he is a fictional character invented by followers of Christianity to create a figure to worship.

The 126 texts he studied were all written in the period during or soon after the supposed existence of Jesus, when Paulkovich says they would surely have heard of someone as famous as Jesus – but none mention him.

‘When I consider those 126 writers, all of whom should have heard of Jesus but did not – and Paul and Marcion and Athenagoras and Matthew with a tetralogy of opposing Christs, the silence from Qumram and Nazareth and Bethlehem, conflicting Bible stories, and so many other mysteries and omissions – I must conclude that Christ is a mythical character,? he writes.

?”Jesus of Nazareth” was nothing more than urban (or desert) legend, likely an agglomeration of several evangelic and deluded rabbis who might have existed.?

Of the writings he examined, written from the first to third centuries, he found only one book that contained a mention of Jesus – The Jewish Wars by the Roman historian Josephus Flavius written in 95 CE, but he claims it is fabricated.

Paulkovich says the mentions of Jesus were added later by editors, not by Josephus.

Even in the Bible Paulkovich says Paul, often credited with spreading what would become Christianity, never refers to Jesus as a real person.

?Paul is unaware of the virgin mother, and ignorant of Jesus’ nativity, parentage, life events, ministry, miracles, apostles, betrayal, trial and harrowing passion,? he writes.

?Paul knows neither where nor when Jesus lived, and considers the crucifixion metaphorical.? Read more »


Did Jesus perform his miracles with cannabis oil?


For those who don’t believe, try not to be mingy commenters…read the information and talk about that rather than debate whether or not there is a god.

Meanwhile there is some evidence that Jesus in the bible may have used cannabis oil as part of his healing.

I’ve blogged about miracle cure for Charlotte Figi, and there are many others experiencing the same with the legalisation of cannabis in some states.

Tales of ?miraculous? healing through the use of?highly-concentrated cannabis oil?have been circulating within the global marijuana community for almost?ten years, but they only broke into the popular consciousness this August, when Dr. Sanjay Gupta, CNN’s Chief Medical Correspondent, offered millions of viewers a painful apology for previously dismissing mounting evidence in favor of medical cannabis, describing himself as having been??systematically misled??on the subject.

Then Dr. Gupta introduced the world to six-year-old?Charlotte Figi?from Colorado Springs, Colorado, who used to suffer 300 gran mal seizures per week, even after cycling through every anti-seizure medicine in the pharmacopeia and enduring a series of painful procedures that left her unable to walk, talk or eat. Those seizures started when Charlotte was just three months old, and yet in all that time, not one medical professional ever so much as mentioned cannabis. Her parents only learned the herb might help treat Dravet’s?the rare, intractable form of epilepsy tormenting their child?by watching?a video?on Youtube, and even then only decided to try it after all else failed.

The first time they gave their daughter a dose of wholly plant-derived non-psychoactive?high-CBD?cannabis oil, her seizures ceased for seven straight days?a completely astonishing response. She’s now down from more than 1,200 major seizures per month to just two or three mild ones. Towards the end of the CNN segment, as Charlotte happily pedaled her bicycle, her father asked, ?Why were we the ones that had to go out and find this natural cure? How come our doctors didn’t know about this?” ? Read more »

Rudman on King Len

It is not often you will find me agreeing with Brian Rudman.

Yesterday his column was actually superb.

At last, after three years of being in thrall to the mayor, the politicians on Auckland Council are preparing to exercise their power. At Thursday’s meeting of the full council, it looks as though the two most senior councillors, former Auckland City mayor Chris Fletcher, and former regional council chairman Mike Lee will not just move a “cross-party” motion of censure against the mayor, but propose a monitoring committee to oversee the mayor and his office.

This would be similar to the monitoring committees already in place to keep track of council-controlled organisations and the chief executive officer.

Mr Brown has apologised to his wife, his family and, on Friday after the release of the EY report, to the citizens of Auckland for his errors. But councillors say they’ve been humiliated as well, and want an apology of their own.

To me, it’s the monitoring committee that’s important. A powerful body to provide checks and balances over the mayoral silo. Exactly how this attempt to clip the wings of the “executive” mayor will be achieved is one for the lawyers, and ultimately the law-makers to work out. But if the end result is the walls of King Len’s castle are knocked down and he and his officials become members of the greater Auckland Council team, then the whole Bevan Chuang kerfuffle was almost worth it. ?

A pilot who thinks he’s Christ but can only die once

It’s never a good sign when a pilot compares himself to the son of God, and then starts talking about his own death.

“Captain Ravendra Pal Singh, convicted of assaulting two student pilots in a cockpit 1500ft above the ground, compares himself to Jesus Christ.

“I have had a very glorious past in various countries,” he says. “Even Christ was crucified for something he did not do.”

He?claims to have fought wars, counts among his personal friends the president of Botswana, and constantly refers to himself as “one of the best pilots in the world”.”? Read more »

Whale Week What Was

682zoomWe started our Saturday by paying our respects to?Norman Schwarzkopf Jr., the hard-charging US Army general whose forces smashed the Iraqi army in the 1991 Gulf War. ?He died aged 78. ?At The Standard 2012 Worst Political Blog Mike Smith is told some home truths about long term grass-roots Labour families heading for the Greens. ?A quick vid on how to put out a boat fire the Kiwi way is next, followed by a vote for Best Minister. ?The winner, at 52%, is Judith Collins. ?The Whale Week That Was summarised all the stories this blog covered in the previous seven days. ?A quite active Saturday Debate (for the time of year especially) led a post calling for nominations for Best Political Blog. ?Those who see WOBH as any sort of threat to them (and those that don’t too), should take heed of this Malcolm Tucker quote: “marshal all the media forces of Darkness to hound them to an assisted suicide”.? A CNN piece showing Teachers in Utah taking a class on gun use shows some common sense around the gun debate. ?A reader has taken yesterday’s US Fiscal Cliff graphic and created one for New Zealand – great work. ?As Cameron Slater predicted from the outset, the Aussie Hoax DJs will not face charges. ?The NZ Herald continues to amuse – this time a car crashed into a poll. ?The blog then introduces us to two sexy taxidermists showing you don’t have to look like a front row forward to deal with dead animals. ?And you’d think we’re picking on an incompetent NZ Herald, and you would be right. ?This time they have Jesse Ryder beating himself at Eden Park in Wellington. ?Then a hilarious story about a Queensland woman who fell into the longdrop and was there for two hours before being discovered by her husband. ? Turns out that during the Falklands War the French tried to send missiles to Argentinia behind Margaret Thatcher‘s back. ?Commerce first eh? ?The last post of the day highlights a report of a man holding up a Countdown Supermarket with a hammer. ?Our readers get fired up about the idea of hammer banning.

Mega-deluded Mega-Jerk #Megacon

The fat german has done it now.

Likening himself and his company to Jesus and christianity is beyond the pale.

When will be rid of this mega-lomaniac,?narcissistic?mega-jerk


The Jesus Defence

Oh dear Aucklanders have a new Mad Mayor contender. Previously the Mad Mayor of North Shore, Andrew Williams, the Clown of Campbells Bay, had compared himself to Jesus Christ. Now it is Len Brown’s turn.

He said only Jesus Christ had withstood such a high level of scrutiny as him, and come out clean. If ratepayers demand that he identifies who he meets with, then he will quit as Manukau mayor.

Len-Brown-Jezuz-H-Chrizt-iz-juzt-like-me-but-with-a-few-less-nailzLooney Len built his own cross, then lay down on it and handed the nails to the press. It is an affront to all Christians, and Looney Len is supposed to be one to cast yourself as only the second person to walk this earth who is without sin. Unfortunately Looney Len has forgotten about the sin of pride. Comparing himself to the Son of God just lost him the Brown Christian vote in South Auckland.

Worse still though is his refusal to think that transparency is essential in local government. He says that if the ratepayers expect him to detail who he has meeting with then he will resign. Well this ratepayer says resign. I do expect that if the council pays for the meeting, that it is council business, then we can expect under the laws of this land and the rules of the council to know who was at that meeting. Looney Len is essentially saying that he is above the Local Government Official Information and Meetings Act.

The council’s own rules require him to say who was at the Last Supper at Volare, and he should, the ratepayers through their council require it because that is what rules are for. No man is above the law. Except Len Brown. The Mastercard Messiah doesn’t want to tell us who was at the Last Supper, even Jesus did that.

And he has utterly refused to identify who he and mayoress Shan Inglis hosted at their table for an $810 fundraiser dinner at Volare restaurant in Manurewa.

He had good reasons for refusing to identify his guests, he said.

“It is against my principles. I am fighting back on what I believe are the key issues of this campaign and what people are vitally interested in.”

He shouted: “I clearly don’t give a damn about this stuff.”

“It’s critical for me as a point of basic principle as a leader and mayor of the city.

“I sit in this room. I don’t tell anybody I am having an interview with you today. It is between you and me. It is totally confidential.”

He said there was no requirement for him to disclose who he spent council money on.

“Transparency is not a perfect thing,” he added.

“Transparency doesn’t just happen in a perfect world. You have to measure that up against other significant principles and that’s what I’m doing and I will live or die on that.

“If people make a judgment and say, ‘we all agree you should tell everybody who you are seeing all the time’, then I’ll say, ‘that’s it – I am not the mayor any more’.

Truly bizarre behaviour, thinking talking to the Minger is confidential for a start and then saying that transparency shouldn’t be complete. That it’s ok to hide things from the people paying. To shout at a repeater that he doesn’t give a damn about this stuff just shows the man is clearly in the middle of a breakdown.

It might be against Looney Len’s principles to tell us who he shared a nice evening at the Opera with, but since the council paid for it and he has declared it as council business, it is the LAW that he tells us and the council’s policy that he do so as well. His principles don’t matter a single bit.

“If you ask me, do you have good office management around your credit card, clearly not brilliant but not worse than some, I can tell you. I am not running to be office manager.”

Right now Looney Len, isn’t even running a bath. The only thing he is running is a race to see who can be more ridiculous between him and Andrew Williams. Right now I think has a nose in front. All he would have to do now is take a leak on a tree outside the council offices and he is winner.
