Part One: The Greatest Story Ever Told DIRECTOR’S NOTE: Zeitgeist: The Movie - Part 1: “The Greatest Story Ever Told” presents historical data relating to the astronomical/astrological origins of the Judeo-Christiantheology (which can be extended to Islam as well), along with the understanding that these respective stories, beliefs & traditions are really an adaptation-extension of prior Pagan beliefs. In other words, evidence shows that these modern religions are really composites of earlier religions with their stories and symbolisms “borrowed” as the new traditions evolved. Of course, believers of theisticreligions have a inherent, self-preserving interest to disagree with such a notion, for it brings their religion out of the context of the supernatural and novel - and into the context of a singular, serial intellectual evolution of information where many religions begin to share a common symbolic and literary basis. From such a perspective, naturally, the idea that “Jesus” or “Osiris” or “Dionysus”were real, supernatural figures of a larger order metaphysic becomes a distant reality. Regardless, this section isn’t really about whether “God” exists or any such issue - it is about the firm reality that religions have been borrowing and building upon each other, while the central origin of these theologies almost always comes back to stellar and solar fascination, in part. When we track theseliterary/ritual characteristics, we find that most religions of the world have been spawned from the interpretation/misinterpretation of the natural world and its dynamic phenomena. Of this phenomena, it is found that the sun, the stars and the general stellar array have been a powerful source of allegorical and hence mythological meaning since the dawn of humanity. The term to describe this is“Astrotheology” and it will be explained in the pages that follow. I want to thank D.M. Murdock, aka Acharya S, for her profound and deeply brave commitment to this complex issue. She has been very kind to review and update the following data presented here. I would like to point out that many who disagree with the following material often work to condemn the messenger as the originator. Of course, thisis a common tactic of those in denial or those who simply don’t have the interest to investigate thoroughly. While Acharya is an expert in her field and does generate conclusions which are extrapolated from the sources she researches - just as any good scholar should for the sake of progress - her work is also a powerful collection of scholar/historian documentation which has occurred for thepast 2000+ years. In other words, the idea that all of these ideas about comparative religion are “Acharya’s ideas” is beyond incorrect. Again, this is a tactic used by some to avoid actually reviewing sources. Another common accusation is that all these ideas are from an “esoteric” egyptologist names Gerald Massey. This is also nonsense. Massey is simply one of many Egyptologists who recognized theobvious relationship of Christianity to earlier religions, specifically the Egyptian. At end of this section is the Bibliography for Part 1. Everyone is encouraged to examine the sources denoted and research the nature of those scholars. The fact is, while this topic has been very controversial and “taboo” for a very long period of time, it doesn’t change the facts apparent - as inconvenient asthey may be to the current prevailing assumptions about the origins of modern religious beliefs. A MESSAGE FROM DM MURDOCK: When Peter Joseph asked me to help out on this lengthy project, I readily agreed, even though the material contained herein had already been validated repeatedly in my other efforts. In this day and age, it is obvious that many people are not inclined or available timewise...
