about

This track is touching on how the Jesus character may very well not be real at all and simply an invention like all the other similar ideas.

lyrics

[Jesus, as a human being, never existed.]
[The presentation of the Jesus character is somewhat of a composite of many messianic leaders of the time]

Gather ‘round/ let’s talk about the mythos/ of christos
One I’d advise you to dispose/ of/ if you’re engrossed
The info/ I’m about to disclose/ is known to some
So if you think, “I knew it!”/ you’re not the only one
Show me some/ kind of evidence/ you might be thinkin’
But you’ve already seen some/ that might not have sinked in
Shall we begin/ with the mythic hero archetype
22 common traits/ a good place to start it right
The more you match the list/ the more likely you’re a myth
Top score/ hitting every single mark/ is Oedipus
With nineteen or twenty/ your buddy from Nazareth
Check the similarities/ you know he’d pass the test
Apologists tried to account for the symmetry
With lame ideas like diabolical mimicry
The image he was made in/ is so derivative
Indicative of the limits of those primitives

How is it true when your main position/ is plagiarism/
So many people before you came to the same decision/
They claim traditions/ and they do a little name revision/
To try to con the gullible/ into your lame religion/
How is it true when your main position/ is plagiarism/
So many people before you came to the same decision/
They claim traditions/ and they do a little name revision/
To try to con the gullible/ into your lame religion/

It’s so absurd to me/ that this outright forgery
Is thought to be unique/ give beliefs/ the third degree
It should be perjury/ in a court/ just criminal
If you try to claim/ that these books are original
Regional myths distorted/ added their heritage
Details changed and rearranged/ to fit their narrative
That part’s imperative/ just look at the holidays
Thought of ways/ to use other cultures/ like potter’s clay
Assimilation skills that would make the Borg jealous
Those intentional and unintentional edits
Council of Nicaea/ cherry picking the gospels
Not really surprised/ that they’re ignoring their fossils
Colossal lies/ handed down through the generations
Asking veneration/ for crafted imitations
Not that the source is true/ or deserves respect either
Take a moment and think/ just who’s the great deceiver

How is it true when your main position/ is plagiarism/
So many people before you came to the same decision/
They claim traditions/ and they do a little name revision/
To try to con the gullible/ into your lame religion/
How is it true when your main position/ is plagiarism/
So many people before you came to the same decision/
They claim traditions/ and they do a little name revision/
To try to con the gullible/ into your lame religion/

Before the Jesus story was put to papyrus
You had the influences/ Horus and Osirus
Descriptions millennia/ before the existence
Of the depiction/ taken straight from the Egyptians
There’s Buddha from Nepal/ Krishna from India
Dionysus of Greece/ and Attis of Phrygia
Mithra of Persia/ and Tammuz of Sumeria
If you haven’t noticed/ kind of the same area
They look at control systems/ thinking it’s old wisdom
When their sole mission/ was prob’ly to mold visions
Dictums forced on victims/ and now they won’t listen
Like catching the flu/ and learning to love cold symptoms
It’s no coincidence/ there’s a bit of difference
But ignoring the semblance/ is willful ignorance
Try to use your eyes and devise/ what’s not a disguise
It’s comprised of revised lies/ and very plagiarized

How is it true when your main position/ is plagiarism/
So many people before you came to the same decision/
They claim traditions/ and they do a little name revision/
To try to con the gullible/ into your lame religion/
How is it true when your main position/ is plagiarism/
So many people before you came to the same decision/
They claim traditions/ and they do a little name revision/
To try to con the gullible/ into your lame religion/
