A team of scientists led by renowned French marine archaeologist Franck Goddio recently announced that they have found a bowl, dating to between the late 2nd century B.C. and the early 1st century A.D., that is engraved with what they believe could be the world's first known reference to Christ.
If the word "Christ" refers to the Biblical Jesus Christ, as is speculated, then the discovery may provide evidence that Christianity and paganism at times intertwined in the ancient world.
The full engraving on the bowl reads, "DIA CHRSTOU O GOISTAIS," which has been interpreted by the excavation team to mean either, "by Christ the magician" or, "the magician by Christ."
Well ladies and gents, its been a while since I last blogged, but hey, life gets in the way of life some times. But this is a great place to start.
I have found that this is really bothering some people! They get all upset and say that it is probably not "their" christ who is "the magician". However, the claim has often been that there was only one christ. If there were more than one person called christ back then, then the obvious "myth" scenario comes into play. Which stories are about which Jesus Christ if there was more than one? Where they all true? Where all the christs Messiahs?
The clear answer, in response to this and all the evidence so far compiled by scholars, is that Jesus Christ is less of a man, and more a compilation of stories about many people in a superstitious time period by superstitious people. After all, the stories of Jesus were compiled by people who would have formerly been pagans, and a man calling people to follow the law would not have held up very well. That is why Paul came to a town and claimed the the greek alter to the unknown god, was really Jesus!
But this subject has christians so upset and crying that they have turned to actually insulting me! Me! HAHAHA! Dumbass, if the story offends you, don't read it! But then, as I have already explained, the problem is that this really challenges what they believe. That is why they get upset. If it was nothing, they wouldn't even care. But it isn't "nothing" its something, thats why the vomit out hate and anger towards the likes of me.
Get over it christians. Your faith is a lie. We all know it, some of us just finally stopped lying to ourselves.
