The man who played Christ still does speeches for Catholics. He was my client, briefly.

Please don't link to wikipedia.

Willem Dafoe is one of the good ones, so far as I know.

Why don't you like Wikipedia, besides all their censorship, unipolar propaganda, distorted history, etc? It's a fine starting point for the "official narrative", and enough for folks to start for a basic reference.

Aside from that? There's no aside from that!

"People" take Snopes and Wikipedia as gospel when they are clearly lies.

It depends. If you seek basic and/or non-political information it's terrific. If you want information on tensegrity, Karlis Johansons, a list of hyperboloid structures, or open source. (Some things I contributed significantly to.)

Snopes claims to be truth buster so I never reference it except in spite and satire. They're not on the same level at all.

Not all people take them as gospel, and certainly not everyone on SaidIt. I suppose I could include a read-at-your-own-discretion - RAYOD warning and/or "Trust but verify."

I always find interest in the inter-meshed histories across lifespans of artists and their contemporaries in their eras. Genesis is quite different than where Gabriel meandered to where he is now - yet a few things haven't changed. Same with the others. Nice link. Thanks.

Joseph Atwill's book and documentary "Caesar's Messiah" about his ideas on the origins of the messiah, Jesus Christ.

CAESAR'S MESSIAH: The Roman Conspiracy to Invent Jesus - OFFICIAL VERSION (1:23:10) ~ CAESAR'S MESSIAH, 2018-09-15

Show notes:

" Seven of today's most controversial Bible scholars reveal their shocking conclusions about the origins of Christianity. Based on the best-selling religious studies book by Joseph Atwill, this documentary shows that Jesus is not a historical figure, the events of Jesus' life were based on a Roman military campaign, his supposed second coming refers to a historical event that already occurred, the teachings of Christ came from the ancient pagan mystery schools, and the Gospels were written by a family of Caesars and their supporters, who left us documents to prove it. "

" Dissecting the history and literature of this time, the scholars show that the Gospels are a sophisticated pro-Roman multi-layered allegorical text that could not have been written by simple Jewish fishermen. Noting that the history officially provided by the Church does not hold up to rigorous scrutiny, the scholars agree that Christianity was used as a political tool to control the masses of the day, and is still being used this way today. "

" Much like the ancient era from which Christianity emerged, we are currently on the brink of an immense paradigm shift, and studying this history can help us understand modern-day politics, and give us the much-needed perspective for coming up with solutions to today's problems, in order to create the better world that we envision. "

" Featured scholars are Joseph Atwill, Robert Eisenman, John Hudson, Kenneth Humphreys, Rod Blackhirst, Acharya S / D.M. Murdock, and Timothy Freke. "
