Overview
More than 100 years ago historians began applying critical methods of documentary analysis to the Judaeo-Christian Bible. To scholars who had hoped to prove the Bible's authenticity, the results were traumatic. One by one the various books of the Bible were discovered to contain errors of fact; inaccurate guesses; rationalizations; prophecies ex post facto, usually combined with prophecies of the future that proved inaccurate; and unmistakable, deliberate lies. Such was the power of the churches that, despite the publication of thousands of scholarly books and articles refuting every part of the Judaeo-Christian Bible, to this day the existence of unchallengeable proof that the Bible is a work of fiction is unknown to ninety percent of the population of Christian-dominated societies. For a century this information has been available only to students willing to wade through dozens of books, each of which deals with only one aspect of Judaeo-Christian mythology. It is hoped that, by bringing together information on the origin and development of every part of the Yahweh- and Jesus-myths, this book will make the facts available to a large enough segment of the population to end the equation of god-mythology with history permanently. Dr. Harwood became interested in the history of Judaeo-Christian mythology when, as an undergraduate at Calgary, he was assigned to write a research paper on "Mystery Religions in the Early Roman Empire", and discovered that the god-eating ritual in which he participated weekly as a believing Christian had existed three thousand years before Jesus' birth. Not for three years, however, could he fully abandon the disproved beliefs to which he had been emotionallycommitted, and acknowledge that gods are as imaginary as fairies.
