Christianity is Packed with Paganism

Richard Rives has discovered that Christianity is packed with paganism. Well, he’s got it part right. Unfortunately, he’s still about as much as a conservative Christian as it’s possible to be.

He started digging into Christian history when he “realized” he had been working on the sabbath! Imagine his chagrin when he “discovered” that:

  • Easter is a pagan goddess
  • December 25th is not the birthday of Jesus
  • Sunday is not the original sabbath
  • Whales are not fish, but actually mammals!

Richard continues his search for the truth, mostly from atheist tracts and Hardee’s place mats but, in the meantime, he’s continuing his long lasting search for the ark of the covenant. So far he hasn’t found anything. Probably because he’s looking in the wrong area. Everyone knows that  it’s in a warehouse in Washington, D.C.

    I knew it…it only the old religion with a new marketing strategy…Washington probably houses reincarnated pharisees and the Messiah is in the White House…

    Psh, the Ark of the Covenant is a church in Axum, Ethiopia. Look it up!

    Long live the Pope-long live Christ the King! Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us now and at the hour of our death!

    It’s futile to criticize the writers/translators of the bible for not using a term that had not been coined until over 1800/200 years later. The term dinosaur, for example, is not in the bible. The term fish in context is used of anything that lived in the sea. New Testament Christianity is not packed with paganism however through syncretism, paganism has been incorporated into many schisms which use Christian terminology including many modern denominations.

    In 1604, King James I of England authorized that a new translation of the Bible into English be started. It was finished in 1611, just 85 years after the first translation of the New Testament into English appeared (Tyndale, 1526).

    mammal
    1826, Anglicized form of Mod.L. Mammalia (1773), coined 1758 by Linnaeus for the class of mammals, from neut. pl. of L.L. mammalis “of the breast,” from L. mamma “breast,” perhaps cognate with mamma.

    dinosaur
    1841, coined by Sir Richard Owen, from Gk. deinos “terrible” + sauros “lizard,” of unknown origin. Fig. sense of “person or institution not adapting to change” is from 1952.


    • The post is about Richard Rives and doesn’t criticize the writers of the Bible for their methods of classification. For the record, though, there are different terms used for different animals that lived in the sea, otherwise shell fish could not be kosher while fish are.

    • John McPherson Says:

      UH, I’m sorry I misuderstood your point about whales being mammals and not fish. I assume that whales are not included in the classification of shell fish and since mammal was not a term coined at the time of translation pehaps you could clarify you point about Richard being surprised to find that whales are mammals and not fish.


    • I merely commented on Richard Rives, who I feel is a bit too old to be confused by the whale/fish dilemma in the Book of Jonah, as well as all the other bullet points listed that are all things he should have known by the time he entered grade school.

    You’re all wrong about where the Ark is…Bigfoot took it!

    MUHAMMAD’S DESIRE
    “I did not
    have to ask my heart what it wanted,
    because of all the desires I have ever known just one did I cling to
    for it was the essence of all desire”:

    Just picture a naked, six-year-old female child & a fifty-four-year-old lecherous Arab and he putting his large PENIS between the child’s thighs & using them like the sides of a vagina to ejaculate. Or picture this lecherous, naked Arab sucking the “pussy” of the naked, six-year-old female child until he “shoots” his load of semen all over the place. And Allah watching & approving of his prophet debauching this innocent, six-year-old child. Allah is some BUCKING god & so is his pervert prophet!!!

    AISHA WASHING SEMEN FROM MUHAMMED’S CLOTHES
    From the Hadith of Bukhari:

    Volume 1, Book 4, Number 229:

    Narrated ‘Aisha:

    I used to wash the traces of Janaba (semen) from the clothes of the Prophet and he used to go for prayers while traces of water were still on it (water spots were still visible).

    Volume 1, Book 4, Number 230:

    Narrated ‘Aisha:

    as above (229).

    Volume 1, Book 4, Number 231:

    Narrated Sulaiman bin Yasar:

    I asked ‘Aisha about the clothes soiled with semen. She replied, “I used to wash it off the clothes of Allah’s Apostle and he would go for the prayer while water spots were still visible. ”

    Volume 1, Book 4, Number 232:

    Narrated ‘Amr bin Maimun:

    I heard Sulaiman bin Yasar talking about the clothes soiled with semen. He said that ‘Aisha had said, “I used to wash it off the clothes of Allah’s Apostle and he would go for the prayers while water spots were still visible on them.

    Volume 1, Book 4, Number 233:

    Narrated ‘Aisha:

    I used to wash the semen off the clothes of the Prophet and even then I used to notice one or more spots on them.

    Islam’s Not For Me!
    They tried to tell me
    my religion was wrong.
    They tried to tell me
    to follow Islam.
    They said their “Prophet”
    was a righteous dude,
    But I found out
    none of their words were true.

    I read the Qur’an
    and I read the Hadith,
    And the sickness of Mohammed
    was apparent to me.
    He justified perversion
    in the name of Allah,
    When he married a girl
    too young for a bra.

    She was playing with dolls
    when the “Prophet” came.
    Her childhood was stolen
    in Allah’s name.
    Aisha was nine
    when he took her to bed.
    Don’t tell me that fool’s
    not sick in the head.

    I ain’t gonna follow no child molester, sex offender, Prophet pretender.
    I ain’t gonna follow no child molester! Islam’s not for me!
    Islam’s not for me!

    The sickness of
    the Islamic mind,
    Has caused some mullahs
    to be blind.
    To justify their “Prophet”
    they will justify sin,
    So the sins of the “Prophet”
    are repeated again.

    All over the world
    in Islamic states,
    Nine year old girls
    suffer cruel fate,
    Sold into marriage
    to twisted men,
    And Aisha’s sad story
    is repeated again.

    I ain’t gonna follow no child molester, sex offender, Prophet pretender.
    I ain’t gonna follow no child molester! Islam’s not for me!
    Islam’s not for me!

    Do you care about women
    all over the world?
    Do you care about those
    little girls?
    Better stand up and fight
    for human rights,
    Speak out against
    the laws of Islam!

    I ain’t gonna follow no child molester, sex offender, Prophet pretender.
    I ain’t gonna follow no child molester! Islam’s not for me!
    Islam’s not for me!
    Islam’s not for me!

    Sexual Perversion in Islam

    Pedophilia

    Let me begin with a quote from a fatwa by the late and unlamented Ayatollah Khomeini of Iran.

    “A man can marry a girl younger than nine years of age, even if the girl is still a baby being breastfed. A man, however is prohibited from having intercourse with a girl younger than nine, other sexual acts such as foreplay, rubbing, kissing and sodomy is allowed. A man having intercourse with a girl younger than nine years of age has not committed a crime, but only an infraction, if the girl is not permanently damaged. If the girl, however, is permanently damaged, the man must provide for her all her life. But this girl will not count as one of the man’s four permanent wives. He also is not permitted to marry the girl’s sister.”

  7. CJM Says:

    It is difficult to understand why anyone would want to continually bash their ancestors–everyone was a Pagan in the beginning of time, like it or not. The churches, especially the Catholic church, used Paganism as a means to convert people into their congregations. It is time christians quit their bashing and accept Paganism for what it was–a beginning of man’s recognition of the power of our Ultimate Creator. It is NOT the anti-God slop that Rives preaches about.

    As for the islamic ‘faith,’ it is a perversion of God and the male islamic leaders admit that their ‘religion’ is based on sex and male favoritism. While they have no reverence or care for women, they have an odd way of looking at homosexuality, which is punishable by death under the Quran yet it is perfectly fine for older men to have full sexual relations with young boys! The mutilation of their women/daughters speaks ill of these infidels who make a mockery of God on a daily basis. Yes, these promotors of the shar’ia are the infidels they claim to despise. And these fools want us to believe in the shar’ia???
