A new Jesus conspiracy theory

There is this new book coming out that claims that Jesus is not a prophet, and never really wanted to start a religion, but instead wanted just to rule Israel and was the bastrad son of Mary and a Roman soldier. Oh yeah. This reminds me of this other book I read, it was called "The Christ Conspiracy: The greatest story ever sold!". The book, written by an archeologist, basically had the premise and the "historical evidence" to prove that not only was the story of Jesus stolen from the Legends of Horus and Vishnu, but that the disciples never really existed either, and were taken from other eastern legends. That the whole thing is a myth. For real. I thought the whole thing was incredible, because, well, not only did the author of that book disprove christianity and jesus, he disproved Islam as well. You see, the Koran is very specific in its mention of Jesus and Mary and christianity as a previous religion of good. If you prove that Jesus didn't exist, then by extension you prove that the Koran is false, and poof, you have gotten rid of 2 religions for the price of one. I am glad no one on the islamic side of things made that connection yet, other wise this dude would've gotten killed faster than you can say Fatwa.

Fatwa ..... haha , there I said it is he dead yet?
anyway many christians believe that mohammad was not a prophet, and that all he's just a sex addict that abused a christian hermit to make his holy book, and they even say that mohammad was trying to make the Koran sound like a poem but he didn't even manage to do that. hihi... I guess that makes it fair right?

Lots of first-person witness interviews someone forgot to do?

This is a fad of books which takes some decent scholarship and runs with a tangent hysterically. I've heard this story before. Nothing new.

Holy Blood, Holy Grail v. Da Vinci Code, Templar UFOs, Freemason Zionist Lizards, etc.

In two thousand years Erik Von Danniken and L.Ron Hubbard will be two great prophets and their books will be holy scriptures. Personally, I intend to be around to see it as I am a chosen one. Ooooh, be careful about Holy Blood, Holy Grail & The Davinci Code, the big G mightn't get you but the lawyers will! BW48

Actually this is far from new. Charles Guignebert in his book JESUS (and he is a religious historian and an extreme skeptic) discusses and demolishes this theory, and the book was written in 1935.

Why didn't he attack the Bible as a fable including Judaism as a false religion? Then he would have got the trifecta of the monolithic religions.

Author needs to put more effort in next time.
