Scholars and others who've actually read her work are supportive: "Your scholarship is relentless! The research conducted by D. Kenneth L. Robert Eisenman "I've known people with triple Ph. Div, North Park Seminary, Chicago " Her work gets better and better with each new book and her latest book, is fantastic.
Did Moses Exist? It literally made me gag repeatedly. These are lies from the desperate out to shore up their faith and euphoria at all costs - even if it means lying about it. What does Jesus do about those lies? Here is one of my favourites: "And during this three day pause, the sun resides in the vicinity of the Southern Cross, or Crux, constellation. Wiki: "It was entirely visible as far north as Britain in the fourth millennium BC.
Chris Dolan: "The Southern Cross is only visible from sites farther south than 27 degrees north latitude. At the time of Christ, however, it was visible from the latitude of Jerusalem almost 32 degrees N. Before that it was just part of another constellation, Centaurus.
The constellation was still there and did exist regardless of the name and is not a legit argument. It merely exposes your own biases demonstrating that you are not a reliable or credible source on the subject.
The did not receive this name until probably the 18th century. It's pathetic.
Please stop embarrassing all freethinkers. I am also an atheist and these errors you spout embarrass us all!!! Atheists like you are part of the problem not the solution because you detour people from reading the material for themselves to see the evidence that people like you claim doesn't exist. Gord: "Furthermore, there wasn't even a constellation called "the Southern Cross" until the 16th century AD, when European sailors started exploring further south.
Gord: "The same anachronistic error is made when the movie claims the three stars of Orion's belt were known as the Three Kings. There's simply too much evidence from primary sources and Egyptologist commentary on them making the case in her book:. There's good reason why scholars who've actually read her work like Dr. Price are supportive of it:. The rest of the arguments from the anti-Zeitgeist part 1 crowd are of the same crap quality as what you've provided here.
You either do not know what you're talking about or you're intentionally confused on what Zeitgeist was actually saying there. You are strawmaning and it's dishonest. Like other anti-Zeitgeisters you have to distort the facts and it's disingenuous. So, make it up however you need to.
Thing is, even if it was wrong, Acharya just said it did not come from her work so blaming her still just demonstrates your biases and dishonesty. And even if it were wrong it doesn't mean that everything else is. What you fail to grasp here is that it all depends on where one is on the planet, plus the earths tilt and it all makes the difference. You're a self-proclaimed astronomy genius who still hasn't figured out that the earth tilts on its axis and other positions on the planet have different perspectives. Chris Dolan, Astronomer I especially love how you try to claim it never existed as if somebody suddenly decided to put it up there.
It existed and was there by whatever name. It's impossible to have an objective discussion on this subject with someone as dishonest as you, Gord. Get a life.

One cannot debate a pathological liar. I will waste no more time you. Chris Dolan, Astronomer. I especially love how you try to claim it never existed as if somebody suddenly decided to put it up there. This is an absolutely obvious thing to anyone who understands anything about astronomy. Take a first year university course on the subject, and you will realize how embarrassingly ignorant you are of reality. You should be ashamed of yourself for such a pathetic and sloppy error. That is a strawman argument.
Drop it immediately. You embarrass all atheists and freethinkers with such egregious errors and distortions. This is a prime example of what you anti-Zeitgeisters do, you distort what ZG1 was saying in the first place and then, go on to make straw man arguments in your attempts to prove it wrong, but you fail and you will continue to fail. Now, stop wasting my time with your pretzeled distortions. You're an embarrassment to all atheists, you sound like Matt Dillahunty, another embarrassment to atheists. Professional astronomers side with Zeitgeist: "The Southern Cross is only visible from sites farther south than 27 degrees north latitude.
Chris Dolan, Astronomer Suck it up and deal with it. Gord "It doesn't take a genius to know that the tilt of the Earth on its axis does not in any way change the path of the Sun through the constellations. Gord "I never claimed the stars were not visible from the northern hemisphere. You're arguing with a strawman. Quit it. Now, you're trying to squirm your way around what you claimed. Here's another egregious error on your part: [quote]Gord: "Zeitgeist says the Sun approaches the Southern Cross, and visually presents it as actually entering the constellation.
The tilt of the Earth's axis won't change that fact. It's got nothing to do with anything I've said. So, your "one of my favourites" turns out not to be an issue at all. I feel sorry for you at this point. Perhaps you should ask for your money back from that "Big Lots" Astronomy course.

You're an embarrassment to all atheists. Last edited by Zeus22 on Fri Oct 10, pm, edited 2 times in total. Here's another egregious error on your part: Gord: "Zeitgeist says the Sun approaches the Southern Cross, and visually presents it as actually entering the constellation. Here's another error: Gord: "I never said the stars in the Southern Cross weren't visible from Egypt or Jerusalem in the past.
Chris Dolan was not wrong, you simply STILL don't get it at all and you still can't figure out why you're embarrassing yourself here. Gord wrote: Zeitgeist propagates misinformation and outright deception about the Sun approaching and entering the constellation of the Southern Cross" "Your image demonstrate that the Sun never approaches, never mind enters, the constellation of the Southern Cross. Acharya had no part in the creation of any of the Zeitgeist movies beyond sharing some images for part 1.
She had nothing to do with any other parts, other movies or the movement. She cannot be expected to vouch for any material in Zeitgeist that did not originally come from her work. We don't need it for the Jesus as a sun god thesis or to make the case for mythicism. Peter Joseph should've explained that better or just left it out but, he never claimed to be any type of scholar So, critics far too often attack ZG1 based on false premises as Zeitgeist was never created as an academic documentary.
Too many astronomers these days tend to have merely a basic knowledge of ancient mythology about the stars and do not always understand the intricacies of ancient star worship:. She does not stand behind errors as she cut that part out of the Sourcebook and as I said previously, "Like other anti-Zeitgeisters you have to distort the facts and it's disingenuous.
Writer Russ Kick , in his book You Are Being Lied To , describes The Christ Conspiracy as "an essential book for anyone who wants to know the reality behind the world's dominant religion". Baptist comparative religion scholar Clinton Bennett compares her views to those of radical freethinker Robert Taylor nicknamed "the Devil's chaplain" , secularist MP and Christ-mythicist John M. Robertson , and American mythographer Joseph Campbell.

McGrath describes her viewpoint as one that "once had some currency among scholars" in the 19th and early 20th centuries, but was subsequently abandoned. Atheist activist and Christ mythicist Richard Carrier criticized her use of the inscriptions at Luxor to make the claim that the story of Jesus' birth was inspired by the Luxor story of the birth of Horus. Her work has also been criticized by New Testament scholar Bart D.
Ehrman , who, in his Did Jesus Exist? He says "all of Acharya's major points are in fact wrong" and her book "is filled with so many factual errors and outlandish assertions that it is hard to believe the author is serious". Taking her as representative of some other writers about the Christ myth theory, he continues "Mythicists of this ilk should not be surprised that their views are not taken seriously by real scholars, mentioned by experts in the field, or even read by them". Emeritus Professor of New Testament Languages and Literature at the University of Nottingham Maurice Casey criticized her work for "her anti-Christian outlook, a lack of any proper sense of reality, failure to give adequate references, inability to interpret primary sources correctly, and dependence on inaccurate out-of-date secondary sources rather than primary evidence.
