The Atheist Jesus

Christians are always telling me about how crucifixion was the worst way for someone to be killed and that this somehow makes Jesus such a great guy/god for knowingly walking into such a painful death. This, many Christians claim is “The Passion” of Christianity. I just have to laugh.

I know that the alleged crucifixion Jesus was so horrible and everything, what with the whipping, the spear in the side, and the crown of thorns, but that really isn’t the worst way for someone to be killed. Not by a long shot. The Romans did some fucked up torture and everything, but let’s face facts. The real torture experts and innovators were the Christians.

Let me tell you about someone who was tortured and murdered much worse than the alleged crucifixion of Jesus. In 415 CE (1361 BAE), a Christian mob incited by Saint Cyril (then Bishop) pulled Hypatia of Alexandria from her chariot, dragged her across the city, stripped her naked, stripped her flesh from her bones, scattered her body parts through the streets, and burned some remaining parts of her body in the great library of Alexandria where she worked. Crown of thorns, lol.

Why did this Christian mob do this? Well, in 1500 years, Christian mobs haven’t exactly improved much. Hypatia was a scientist, mathematician, and philosopher. In fact, she was the Einstein and Ben Franklin of her day. For starters, Hypatia was an educated and independent woman. She taught men at the Library of Alexandria which goes directly against the teachings of the Bible (1 Timothy 2:11-12). She was a scholar and wore scholarly robes (the clothing of men). Hypatia taught ideas about the world which contradicted the divine truths of the Church. She also publicly and vocally rejected Christianity and the Christian God. She was a “New Atheist.” To top it all off, Hypatia may have been bi-sexual.

Hypatia of Alexandria stood for everything that the Church was against and she was vocal about it. As a result, a Christian mob tortured her in a way which makes crucifixion seem like a light spanking.

Now here are the facts, unlike Jesus, we know that Hypatia was a real person and that these events actually happened. Unlike Jesus, many of her contemporary students have quoted her and her works, we also have the writings of contemporary people who disagreed with her and who were critical of her work.

Here is the subjective opinions and speculations of historians. Many historians consider the death of Hypatia to be the beginning of the Dark Ages. She was an extremely brilliant person and the loss of her works and that of the Library probably set human scientific progress back 500 years or more. Just think about that for a moment. What would the world be like scientifically and technologically 500 years from now? We could have had that already if it wasn’t for Christianity.

Hypatia was a messiah of science. Her death damned the world to darkness. Today, religion hasn’t changed. Still there are even increasing numbers of the Christian mob who attempt to suppress science and scientific education. Whether it is evolution, stem cell research, climate change research, etc. religion is still the same mob just with the weapons of mass media.

    It’s really awful to condemn those who do not hold your belief and to hold back progress in society as a whole because it does not fit your view. But this has been what religion is all along, it’s how it came about. If you are strong in your beliefs, new ideas and situations should help you grow more and confirm that your beliefs are the right ones. But the way some religious put themselves in a box on a pedestal…I have to wonder sometimes how comfortable they really are in their beliefs and if they even know why they believe it.

    lol i thought this was going to be a relevation about jesus’ atheism. hypatia’s death is just one example of a long-standing christian tradition of fighting, killing, and destroying the truth. the truth will eliminate the need for superstition. the burning of the great library set the world bavk far more than 500 years. countless texts were lost. there was knowledge we may have never regained, and some that took many more years. that act of arson, in my opinion, is the most atrocious crime in all of human history. christianity has only continued to slow advances since that time through torture and intimidation. without the suppression from the church, one can only imagine where we’d be today. sigh

    George Hanson: They’re not scared of you. They’re scared of what you represent to ‘em.

    Billy: Hey, man. All we represent to them, man, is somebody who needs a haircut.

    George Hanson: Oh, no. What you represent to them is freedom.

    Billy: What the hell is wrong with freedom? That’s what it’s all about.

    George Hanson: Oh, yeah, that’s right. That’s what’s it’s all about, all right. But talkin’ about it and bein’ it, that’s two different things. I mean, it’s real hard to be free when you are bought and sold in the marketplace. Of course, don’t ever tell anybody that they’re not free, ’cause then they’re gonna get real busy killin’ and maimin’ to prove to you that they are. Oh, yeah, they’re gonna talk to you, and talk to you, and talk to you about individual freedom. But they see a free individual, it’s gonna scare ‘em.

    Billy: Well, it don’t make ‘em runnin’ scared.

    George Hanson: No, it makes ‘em dangerous.

    This is a good story to share. I would like to link it on facebook but I really am not willing to put myself out there that much (I prefer more subtle tactics). My life has been busier these days so less effort gets put into fighting fundamentalism. I’ve been wanting to blog on the big bang but I haven’t gotten around to it yet.

    But it is good to remind us about the evil force we face known as Christianity. When blind faith kills people of reason, we have issues. Jesus was not a noble person. He came with a sword and had inconsistent explanations as to how to get to heaven. True heroes are Galileo, Darwin, Copernicus, among other people that sought to stand up to foolish beliefs and provide better explanations.

    Like you said in a previous post….this just further shows how bat-shit insane Christians are. Sadly, I’m sure a lot of them feel justified or that God told them to do these things they’re doing.

    To me, I’d lump them into the same group as pedophiles…vile

    I appreciate having more information about the historic crimes of Christianity. It is very obvious to me that religion, and especially monotheistic religion, has done, and is doing, much to hold back the progress of humanity.

    However, i am not as harsh, as some atheists, in my opinions of most Christians. Most Christians were raised from a very young age to be Christians. They are very hesitent to go against the beliefs of there parents, friends, and community. In addition, supernatural religion can be very comforting, and give very significant ideas about meaning and purpose. Many people also like the idea of ultimate justice after death. People like the idea that good people will be rewarded with heaven. And, many people also like the idea that bad people will be punished after death.

    I am not saying these things as a fan of religion. I am very aware of the price humanity has paid, scientifically and ethically, to maintain irrational religious beliefs.

    I just think, and feel, that i am better off in my battles to estabilish a more rational, and capable, world, if i can maintain some empathy, and understanding for the religious. At the same time, i am not always opposed to being sharply critical, and harsh of some religious people. Many religious people deserve very critical, and sometimes, harsh verbal treatment. I think this is especially true in relation to ‘professional’ religious profiteers, the clergy.

    Robert Ingersoll called the clergy, “parasites who feed off of the frightened, and vampires who suck the blood of those who toil/labor.” Bill Maher called them “intellectual slave-holders, who keep people in a bondage to fantasy and non-sense” that can be very distructive.

    Much can be done to liberate people from their religious up-bringing, and mental confinement. Be strong my fellow liberators, ours is a very important fight.

    Best wishes and efforts, Scotty
