Haha, Babylonian Talmud

Lol. Okay so apparently in the Babylonian Talmud it’s written that Jesus actually had a father, who was Tiberius Julius Pantera of the Roman Empire.

I knew that there was this assertion that his father was a Roman soldier, but I did not know they even had a name of the guy.

Tiberius Julius Abdes Pantera (/pænˈtɛrə/; c. 22 BC – AD 40) was a Roman soldier whose tombstone was found in BingerbrückGermany, in 1859. A historical connection from this soldier to Jesus has long been hypothesized by numerous scholars, based on the claim of the ancient Greek philosopher Celsus, who, according to Christian writer Origen in his “Against Celsus” (Greek Κατὰ Κέλσου, Kata KelsouLatin Contra Celsum), was the author of a work entitled The True Word (Greek Λόγος Ἀληθής, Logos Alēthēs).

Celsus’ work was lost, but in Origen’s account of it Jesus was depicted as the result of an affair between his mother Mary and a Roman soldier. He said she was “convicted of adultery and had a child by a certain soldier named Pantera”.[1] According to James Tabor, Tiberius Pantera could have been serving in the region at the time of Jesus’s conception.[1] Both the ancient Talmud and medieval Jewish writings and sayings reinforced this notion, referring to “Yeshu ben Pantera”, which translates as “Jesus, son of Pantera”. Tabor’s hypothesis is considered highly unlikely by mainstream scholars given that there is little other evidence to support Pantera’s paternity outside of the Greek and Jewish texts.[2][3]

– I mean yeah it’s Wikipedia but honestly at this point whatever

It’s always interesting seeing people make claims and counterclaims to divinity or whatnot and watching how they play out.

Who knows what the real story is? Just assertions and conjectures as far as I can tell.

Back to Normal™

Ah, just like before COVID.

Now we just need to see America and Iran, Russia, China et. al. get back into the fray and start killing each other and it’ll be like a deadly world-stopping pandemic never even happened.

Christianity vs. Christianity

Prime example:

Everybody loves Jesus until you tell them Jesus didn’t care if you were gay or if you were black, or poor, or a woman, or all of that.

Me, I’m just straight up: Christianity is bullshit and Jesus was probably not really the nice guy you think he was.

In fact he actually made people angry enough to want to kill him. Does that sound like an all-good person to you, who loves people in spite of their flaws and faults?

Edit: And would you really want to worship such a thing anyway? Doesn’t that say more about you, that you want to worship a guy who will forgive you no matter what shitty thing you do? Don’t you want him to point out your flaws instead, and tell you to aim for better?

I think my big fear is that the Christians who should be hearing what I’m saying are not, and the ones at whom this message isn’t directed towards would take a message like this as being pointed specifically at them.

I guess it might have to do with living in Canada; if I were in Iran I would be speaking out against Muslim hypocrisy.

Oh well. Time to do some laundry.

The Aryan Burden

The honest truth is that I simply wish to help the primitive white race become civilized and achieve their full glory in the true Aryan Imperium.

It is the noble and moral obligation of every reasonable person on the face of this planet, to teach these tragically uncultured, and backwards people what it means to be fully human in the positive sense of the word.

Christianity is like a beaker of shit with tiny diamonds interspersed in it.

In that you can reach in and feel around for the diamonds and recognize there really is something valuable in there (and yes, I’ve learned great things and sometimes I’ve even seen some amazing people) but at the end of the day you’ve still got your hand in a big beaker of shit.
