Zeitgeist, the Movie

This is an interesting movie and examines the Christianity religion.

Now, I am not saying whether this is true or false. However, the transcript, with all the references, and there are hundreds, show that the creator has taken an enormous amount of trouble to get his facts together.

Here is a short extract from his transcript, with the reference points taken out. However I have a link below to the website which has all the reference points hot-wired into the transcript. I have only removed them here for clarity.

Broadly speaking, the story of Horus is as follows:

Horus of Egypt (He is the Sun God of Egypt of around 3000 BC) was born on December 25th of the virgin Isis-Meri.

His birth was accompanied by a star in the east, which in turn, three kings followed to locate and adorn the new-born saviour.

At the age of 12, he was a prodigal child teacher, and at the age of 30 he was baptised by a figure known as Anup and thus began his ministry.

Horus had 12 disciples he travelled about with, performing miracles such as healing the sick and walking on water.

Horus was known by many gestural names such as The Truth, The Light, God’s Annointed Son, The Good Shepherd, The Lamb of God, and many others.

After being betrayed by Typhon, Horus was crucified, buried for 3 days, and thus, resurrected.

These attributes of Horus, whether original or not, seem to permeate in many cultures of the world, for many other gods are found to have the same general mythological structure.

Then, from around the world, were:

Attis, of Phyrigia, born of the virgin Nana on December 25th, crucified, placed in a tomb and after 3 days, was resurrected.

Krishna, of India, born of the virgin Devaki with a star in the east signaling his coming, performed miracles with his disciples, and upon his death was resurrected.

Dionysus of Greece, born of a virgin on December 25th, was a traveling teacher who performed miracles such as turning water into wine, he was referred to as the “King of Kings,” “God’s Only Begotten Son,” “The Alpha and Omega,” and many others, and upon his death, he was resurrected.

Mithra, of Persia, born of a virgin on December 25th, he had 12 disciples and performed miracles, and upon his death was buried for 3 days and thus resurrected, he was also referred to as “The Truth,” “The Light,” and many others. Interestingly, the sacred day of worship of Mithra was Sunday.

And the last…

Jesus Christ was born of the virgin Mary on December 25th in Bethlehem, his birth was announced by a star in the east, which three kings or magi followed to locate and adorn the new savior.

He was a child teacher at 12, at the age of 30 he was baptized by John the Baptist, and thus began his ministry.

Jesus had 12 disciples which he traveled about with performing miracles such as healing the sick, walking on water, raising the dead, he was also known as the “King of Kings,” the “Son of God,” the “Light of the World,” the “Alpha and Omega,” the “Lamb of God,” and many others.

After being betrayed by his disciple Judas and sold for 30 pieces of silver, he was crucified, placed in a tomb and after 3 days was resurrected and ascended into Heaven.

Is anything familiar?

The above has been taken from and there are references against each item of information. On clicking on the reference number you will be taken to the reference page where you will have the full reference quoted.

If this is true, and I am, by no means, saying it is, then it would appear that we, the population, have been lied to, from century to century, by self-professed “Men of God”.

My gut reaction, seeing the huge amount of research carried out, and seeing how the church has been responsible for so much human misery (the Spanish Inquisition and refusing to allow Catholics in Sub-Sahara Africa to use condoms to combat AIDs as just two of them) – there are many more over the last 2,000 years – is to tentatively accept it as being truthful.

See for yourself and I would appreciate feedback from anyone religious on this. Don’t quote the movie, just the transcript so I can check where you are coming from.

Health & Safety

“The ultimate result of shielding men from the effects of folly is to fill the world with fools.”
Herbert Spencer
English philosopher (1820 – 1903)

Now, I would consider myself a fairly educated sort of chap, but I had no idea that “Health and Safety” started as far back as the nineteenth century! However, from reading Herbert’s quote above, they were either around in his day, or he had a pretty good crystal ball.

My wife and I were visiting “Barnsdale Gardens” the other day and on their brochure, in large print, on the front page, were the following “Heath and Safety points:

  • There are some uneven surfaces at some entrances and certain gardens
  • The gardens are true to type so please be aware of all the usual garden hazards
  • Plants are not to be touched as some may be poisonous or cause irritation
  • There are greenhouses and ponds in some gardens, so extra care is to be taken where children are concerned
  • There are vehicles and machinery regularly passing between the entrance to the gardens and the nursery

Those readers who see nothing wrong, silly, daft or strange in the Gardens having to spell out such dangers are evidently one of those people that our Herbert refers to.
