In Association with
The Bible Fraud
by Tony Bushby
Review by Mary & David Dohrmann - Twin Oaks Center

With public attention focused now on the Catholic Church and its internal workings, The Bible Fraud is a timely exposé of the many deceptions inherent in the Church's origins and development. Particular attention is given to the lineage and birth of Jesus (Rabbi Jesus) and his twin brother (Judas Khrestus), their bloodlines, the creation of the Jesus story as given in the Bible, and how the Catholic Church and the Roman Emperors conspired to create myths that empowered them at the expenses of virtually everyone else. There is also some very interesting information about the origins of the King James Bible and the role played in its creation by Francis Bacon (aka Shakespeare).

As interesting and intriguing as this book is, we would not recommend reading it if you are not open to completely different ways of looking at the life of Jesus and the origins of Christianity. If your faith depends on historical facts, this book is not for you. If you wish to open to new ways of understanding Jesus and his mission, you will not be disappointed. For The Bible Fraud offers support for the probability that most of what we have been told heretofore about the lives of Jesus and his disciples, the formation of Christianity and the Christian church, and nearly every paragraph of academic Christian theology, stands on the shaky underpinnings of false historical data. While Bushby does not claim to have the full truth, he does support his conclusions with ample, well-documented research. He presents a new look at history which is quite exciting, and which shows how we should not be surprised to see corruption and stupidity in high church places, given that it started that way.

The Deeper Truth
by Richard Russell Cassaro
Expresses in great detail Richard Cassaro’s hypothesis that Christ appeared in the flesh not just in Israel 2000 years ago, but also in Egypt 10,000 years ago, in the figure known to history as the god Osiris. Cassaro explores the similarities between the two figures in their teachings, practices, symbols that they used, and even their physical appearances, as well as, of course, the religions that were founded after them. Cassaro also shows elements of Mormon tradition that confirm his theory, and makes an excellent case for the postulate that monarchy was installed on Earth by God himself as the most perfect form of government. Excellent work, and lots of good pictures too.

Contains info on the possible involvement of Crowley, Mathers and Blavatsky. Crowley, for his part, seemed to be playing both sides, and even had a meeting with Winston Churchill in which he "gave" the Prime Minister the "V for Victory" sign as an occult symbol to combat the swastika. The author is mentioned in the Special Thanks section of the Necronomicon. Read the Dagobert's Revenge interview with Peter Levenda.

The Passover Plot
by Dr. Hugh Schonfield
Explores the concept that Christ purposely became the Messiah by enacting messianic prophecies from the Torah. It even speculates that he faked his death on the cross by using a narcotic drug (hidden in the vinegar that was squeezed into his mouth from a sponge just prior to his "death") that created a zombie-like state of catatonia, allowing him to "rise from the dead" three days later, as prophesized. This was accomplished not with the help of his twelve disciples, but via a conspiracy that included Nicodemus and Joseph of Arimathea. This book is excellent, and provided much of the central thesis behind Holy Blood, Holy Grail.
