  • The Hellenic Society of Metaphysics interviews author and scholar of comparative mythology and religion D.M. Murdock aka Acharya S.
  • A collection of videos of the work of Acharya S/D.M. Murdock.
  • The further one regresses in time, the more obvious it becomes that the principal and singular religious worship found globally has revolved around nature.
  • What is the purpose in life? Is it simply to follow rules and rote that turn people into robots and drones? It is clear that human beings, free from stifling and enslaving ideologies, can become great, exalted and divine. While it is crucial and good to engage in the breaking down of divisive and dangerous beliefs that make human beings less glorious than they truly are, it is also necessary to identify that glory, such that we may all strive to attain to it.
  • On Thursday, July 31, 2008, an article appeared in the newspaper South Shields, England, called The Shields Gazette that highlighted the book The Christ Conspiracy: The Greatest Story Ever Sold by Acharya S also known as D.M. Murdock.
  • Are you looking for the REAL "Zeitgeist Challenge?" Here it is! This page is the Bibliography for the Real ZEITGEIST Challenge.
  • Sir Dr. E.A. Wallis Budge remarked that a study tracing the 'influence of ancient Egyptian religious beliefs and mythology on Christianity' would 'fill a comparatively large volume.' Since Dr. Budge's time, for a variety of reasons, including the seemingly irreconcilable academic gap between historians and theologians, no one has taken up the call to produce such a volume--until now.

  • Best-selling author David Mills reviews this 'brilliant volume' that 'should be required reading in every American classroom.' Says he: 'Murdock describes in a most fascinating way why the four Gospels were almost certainly not written in the order in which they currently appear, nor were they authored by the men whose names they bear, not even appearing in the historical record until over a century later!'
  • There is much confusion as to who is "the Buddha," the main figure of the Eastern religion of Buddhism. First of all, there are different forms of Buddhism, including the two main branches of Theravada and Mahayana, in the latter of which we find the familiar Zen and Tibetan traditions. Secondly, as we shall see in this excerpt from my book Suns of God: Krishna, Buddha and Christ Unveiled, there have also been many different Buddhas, including the figure also known as Siddhartha Gautama and Sakyamuni, who is frequently considered a "historical" personage.
  • DM Murdock’s study of the biblical stories of Moses and their sources is a compelling and detailed analysis of the available textual and archaeological evidence. She explains in great depth and breadth the facts surrounding this major religious character, rigorously and systematically drawing on sound scholarship to demonstrate a new, provocative and coherent interpretation that refutes conventional assumptions. In highlighting the best and most scientific research, Murdock brings forth lost information with the high goal of enabling greater understanding and social harmony.
  • Did Jesus fulfill prophecy? There are many Old Testament "messianic scriptures" that seemed to have been fulfilled in Jesus Christ. What really happened?
  • In the final analysis, the purported testimony of Papias—found only in Eusebius, writing some 300 years after Christ's supposed existence—is worthless in establishing an early date for the canonical gospels. In reality and to reiterate, the gospels do not emerge clearly in the historical record until the last quarter of the second century, a fact that explains much about their origin, contents and style.
  • Knowing the facts of Jewish astrolatry, the enigmatic imagery in the biblical book of Ezekiel (c. 6th cent. BCE) can be analyzed as depicting many aspects of astral religion/astrotheology.
  • Although it is believed to represent the time of Jesus Christ's resurrection, the festival of Easter existed in pre-Christian times...
  • What are the most accurate dates for the canonical gospels in the New Testament as we have them? Are these texts really the faithful accounts of eyewitnesses written shortly after Jesus's advent? Or does the evidence point to the gospels as anonymous compositions dating to the late second century?
  • How was the King James Bible created? Is the King James version of the Bible inspired and inerrant? In reality, the King James Bible was created using preceding English translations and Greek texts dating to the 12th to 15th centuries - the 'Textus Receptus' - as well as 'some influence from the Latin Vulgate,' the edition by Catholic saint Jerome in the fourth century.
  • This contention that connecting Jesus to the sun constitutes a "modern" phenomenon is easily demonstrated to be false, through the study of ancient texts, including the Bible and works of the early Church fathers, as well as Christian traditions, rituals, architecture and artifacts.
  • The Egyptian god Osiris was called 'Father.' He once walked the earth. He was the savior and deliverer of mankind. He was killed, buried in a tomb and resurrected, before ascending to heaven.
  • Once the Jesus myth is more widely understood as a composite relic of a credulous past, we may be able to go forward toward a more satisfying set of spiritual hopes and insights, and leave behind the simplistic magics of a less enlightened people. We have "modernized" nearly every other aspect of our Western culture. Perhaps it is time to modernize its religion into a form that enlightenment may embrace without insulting its own intelligence.
  • Is the earthly father of Jesus, Joseph, a remake of Seb, the earthly father of the Egyptian god Horus?
  • 'Man Made God' untangles a great deal of confusion for those asking how an all-powerful god could allow such sadistic behavior towards innocent woman and children through the ages. These essays expose a sobering reminder of just how stuck in the shadows we still are.
  • The story of Moses, the Exodus, desert sojourn and entry into the Promised Land is shown to be myth, not history. What does it mean? How does this myth tie into the festival of Easter?
  • Halloween, Samhain, All Hallows, All Saints or Hallow-Eve is the season of the Crone. In ancient paganism, the word Crone denoted an elder priestess or tribal matriarch; a cognate word is "crown," the symbol of a leader. The word was made pejorative when the Christian Church redefined all elder priestesses of the old religion as malevolent witches. Similarly, the word "hag" was once derived from Greek hagia—a holy woman—and also became a Christianized term for a witch.

  • Tim Callahan's declaration that much of ZEITGEIST, Part 1, is "plainly and simply bogus" is false, period. Callahan has evidently not even studied the sources meticulously cited on the ZG website to see from where this material comes.
  • Is Jesus the "reason for the season"? Christmas is the winter solstice celebration, not the birthday of the Son of God.
  • What does the future hold for us? Will we endure a chaotic time when much of humankind is lost? Read this excerpt from "Paradise Found."
  • A review of the enlightening book 'The Gospel According to Acharya S' focuses on the healing power of various powerful concepts, including the ability to overcome the mental, spiritual and emotional abuse of mainstream religion, which appears to contribute to alcoholism and drug addiction.
  • Was Amenhotep II depicted as being born of a "virgin mother?" Or is there more to the hieroglyphs? Could the Christian nativity have been based on the Egyptian divine-birth cycle?
  • The history of Mythicism or the Mythicist Position is fascinating and important to our fundamental understanding of the world's religions and mythologies.
  • Much has been made of the gospel account of the 'star in the east' followed by 'wise men' from afar, claimed to have heralded the birth of the newborn savior of the world. Over the centuries, various supposedly scientific theories have been put forth concerning this purported phenomenon that turn out to be all for naught, because this theme reveals itself to be an old mythical motif.
  • Along with the claim that Horus was born on "December 25th" or the winter solstice of a virgin called Mery comes the contention that he was "crucified between two thieves," as Jesus is depicted to have been in the New Testament.
  • Nearly all the solar deities had a Virgin for a mother. The birthday of Jesus, like that of Mithra and other solar gods, was about December 25, and his twelve Apostles correspond to the twelve signs of the Zodiac. When Jesus (who was the Sun of Righteousness) was "crucified," the Sun naturally died; it was eclipsed. Jesus rose with the Sun on the day of the Sun.
  • In light of his traditional summer, rainy-season birth, the contention made by several writers over the past couple of centuries that Krishna was born on 'December 25th' or the winter solstice appears to be a mistake. Oddly enough, however, this 'error' may have revealed a mystery for the higher initiates in the Indian religion: To wit, Krishna is a mythical incarnation of the solar deity Vishnu, who is said to 'sleep' and then 'rise' at the winter solstice or 'December 25th.'
  • The term "mythicist" refers to the perspective that there exists no credible scientific evidence for the "historical" Jesus and other biblical figures.
  • In exploring the various Egyptian influences upon the Christian religion, one name frequently encountered is that of lay Egyptologist Gerald Massey (1828-1907).
  • In the nearly two millennia since the story of Jesus Christ began to be circulated, millions of people have wondered, 'Who is Jesus Christ?' Much ink has been spilled, and many thousands of books have been written about this grandest of gods and men, in the quest to portray the 'real Jesus.' Practically every personality type and special interest group has been able to find a reflection of itself in Jesus, and countless people have looked to Christ as their example, inspiration and champion.
