- Jeff, now is the time to tell people throughout the world
about the incredible scientists and philosophers of ancient Greece. If
we had been following them nobody would have been slaughtered in any crazy
- The staggering thing is that the ruling classes in the
UK know all about the free thinkers of Greece. However, the name of the
establishment game has been to never let the proletariat know what they
know. This keeps the thought police on top of the heap and the masses in
- British public (private in the USA) school boys and girls
all took Latin and Greek. The headmaster of my grammar school in Bristol
(QEH) had a first class honours degree in classics from Cambridge University.
He took us for history and divinity but he made sure none of us ever found
out about the work of the Greek scientists and philosophers. Just some
nonsense about an invisible god who is going to forgive all our sins on
Earth just as long as we believe in him - a masculine big daddy.
- Now we can understand why the Oxford University philosopher,
Prof. Sir A.J. Ayer, made the following statement on the front cover of
the first edition of the Mail on Sunday.
- "Christianity is morally outrageous and Intellectually
- "The trick is to read the right books." Carl

don't want us to read. Take heart, it's only just three main books - Sagan,
Paine and Findlay. Numbers one, two and three on the Vatican's banned books

- Uncomfortable Historical Facts That We Are Never
- At School in the Theocracy of Great Britain
- A theocracy is a country where the Church and the State
are established - a form of government directed through a priestly order.
- Unelected Christian bishops and their allies in the House
of Lords make our laws. As we do not have a written constitution in Great
Britain, the law of the land is our constitution. It is against the law
to tell the truth! The common law offence of blasphemous libel is still
in place even though the Law Commission in 1982 strongly recommended that
it should be abolished. There are sinister clauses in this law that stop
certain historical facts from even being presented to the public on the
grounds that they upset believers in priestcraft - Christians. No obscurantist
would be stupid enough to sue anybody under this antiquated law, but it
is a perfect tool for censorship. Editors say, "We can't publish your
articles because they are against the law." And they are absolutely
correct in our "free" country!

- History Revisited
- By Michael Roll
- In 1936 George Orwell, the renowned author of the book
"1984" said to his fellow writer, and chronicler of the Spanish
Civil War, Arthur Koestler:
- "I know it is the fashion to say that most of recorded
history is lies anyway, but what is peculiar to our own age is the abandonment
of the idea that history could be truthfully written."
- It must have been about this date that Arthur Findlay
set about the task of writing the true history of mankind from 3,500 BCE
to the end of the Second World War, which he appropriately called
- The Curse of Ignorance. This history is written without
allegiance to any country or religion and should be in every educational
establishment in the world.
- We Have not Been Told the Truth
- The greatest historical lie of all has now been laid
bare, our Western civilisation is not thanks to Christianity, the very
opposite it true, our civilisation is in spite of Christianity. This fact
was made very clear when the BBC showed the thirteen part television series
"Cosmos" in the early 1980's.
- This was written and presented by the American astronomer
Carl Sagan. This series was seen by millions of people throughout the world.
Many were astounded to find that they had been deliberately deceived by
their history teachers: that the truth is completely opposite to what they
had been taught from birth. Carl Sagan told the shocking but true story
of how in the year CE 415, a Christian mob, acting on the orders of Archbishop
Cyril, murdered Hypatia, the female principal of the great library in Alexandria.
This remarkable woman was a mathematician, astronomer, physicist and a
philosopher. On her way to work she was dragged from her chariot and the
mob, armed with abalone shells, flayed the flesh from her bones. Her library,
along with its priceless manuscripts, was burnt to the ground. Cyril was
made a saint! Unfortunately this was not an isolated incident but one small
part of a carefully organised plan to eliminate paganism from the Roman
- If we look up the history of education in the Encyclopedia
Britannica it reads rather like a Western movie: the good guys (Christians)
slowly but surely overcoming the bad guys (pagans). The same encyclopedia
gives the definition of pagans as "unenlightened, idol worshipping,
raw rustic heathens". Hypatia, along with all the brilliant Greek
and Roman scientists, philosophers, engineers, architects and educationalists
are always described as pagans in all our history books that are written
- An Explanation of the Universe
- This includes Thales, the founder of geometry, astronomy
and philosophy, the first to attempt an explanation of the universe apart
from theology (religious mythology), and Pythagoras who was the father
of mathematics and the first to say the world was round. This round earth
theory was actually proved by Eratosthenes, he even measured its circumference
in the 3rd century BCE. Hippocrates, the first person we would call by
the name doctor, he approached the cure of disease in a truly scientific
manner. He discarded the idea that illness was a punishment for sin or
caused by devils. By the 3rd century BCE anatomy had revealed something
of the internal workings of the human body. However, the Christian belief
in the resurrection of the physical body brought investigation to an end
until the 17th century. In the 4th century CE Pergamon and all the other
Greek and Roman hospitals and sanatoria were destroyed by Christian fanatics,
their doctors being massacred or exiled.
- The Plagiarism of Copernicus
- Aristarchus in the 3rd century BCE said that the Earth
was not the centre of the universe, but revolved round the sun. The Roman
Catholic priest Copernicus discovered this man's work in the 16th century
and claimed it for his own. The reason why these ancient achievements have
been censored is because our Christian masters do not want us to find out
that anything important happened before the birth of their baby god!
- Theodoras invented the key, ruler, carpenter's square,
level, lathe and bronze casting. Carl Sagan asks, "Why are there no
statues to this man?" Maybe it's because he did not kill anybody!
Epicurus and Zeno, 3rd century BCE, two most illustrious moral philosophers,
emphasised the need of improved ethical conduct and taught that only through
right living could happiness be obtained. Anaximander 6th century BCE,
the father of modern physics, also anticipated Darwin and Alfred Russel
Wallace. He was followed by Anaxogaras who said that the moon was a place
like the Earth and not a god.
- The Discovery That Reality Also Exists in the Invisible
- Empedocles discovered that reality also existed in the
invisible part of the universe - beyond our five physical senses. Democritus
propounded the theory that matter is composed of invisible stuff called
atoms. He thought religions were divisive and evil. Archimedes' inventions
led to practical scientific discoveries. Euclid taught people to think,
calculate and reason. Ictinus was the great architect of the Parthenon.
Socrates (470-399 BCE), this outstanding philosopher taught the unity of
mankind and survival after death without any connection with priestcraft.
Just before the priests forced him to take poison his friends asked him
where he wanted to be buried, to which he answered, "Catch me if you
can." Plato, who was taught by Socrates, passed on his great wisdom
and codes of conduct to Aristotle, whom many declare to be the greatest
early scientist of them all.
- Quintillian (CE 35-96), a Roman citizen who led the known
world in education on the lines laid down by Plato. He was the equivalent
of our Secretary of State for Education, a government office that was not
created until 1868 in Christian Britain. All the education bills had been
kicked out by the House of Lords that had power over the elected House
of Commons. This outstanding of all Roman schoolmasters loved liberty,
justice and mercy besides abhorring all forms of cruelty and oppression.
To him ethics took the place of religion as the only safe guide in correct
- The World Plunged into the Christian Dark Ages
- This then is the "pagan" civilisation that
was destroyed by Christendom after the Council of Nicaea in CE 325. It
was here at Nicaea that an all-embracing (Catholic) religion was formulated
and adopted as the official religion of the Roman Empire. Jesus, an unhistorical
Jewish teacher, was officially made into the god called Christ (the anointed
one). The 17th saviour-god known to historians and the second person in
a trinity of gods. Arthur Findlay says, "To confuse Jesus with Christ
the saviour-god is a gross historical blunder." All who did not conform
to these supernatural doctrines and dogmas were murdered or exiled. The
known world was plunged into the Christian Dark Ages, not to really emerge
again until the invention of printing which coincided with the fall of
Constantinople in 1453. Unlike the Christians, the Muslims had not destroyed
their records of the Greek and Roman civilisations. >From this date
the human race has slowly but surely freed itself from the curse of priestcraft
and ignorance. Even though the Holy Inquisitors of the Faith tried with
all their might, these Christian fanatics could not murder fast enough
to keep up with the printing presses. The smell of printers' ink was indeed
the incense of the Renaissance.
- The Council of Nicaea CE 325
- CE 325 is arguably the most important date in the history
of mankind because the decisions that were taken then by appallingly ignorant
priests shaped the future of humankind for the next sixteen hundred years.
Yet only a handful of academics are aware of this fact. It is not difficult
to understand why Christian teachers and historians avoid this date like
the plague. Before the Council of Nicaea historians estimate that there
were over 150 different Christian sects all insisting that their own particular
tenets were the correct ones. These fanatics were ripping the Roman Empire
apart. We can now understand why the Roman Emperor Constantine the "Great"
called this Council to formulate a Catholic (all-embracing) religion that
everybody must adhere to or face death. Constantine was a cold-blooded
murderer, he not only killed his wife, his son and his nephew but was responsible
for ordering the death of thousands more. This Christian hero was great
all right, a great killer. To check these facts look up Nicene Creed.
- Christians Were Responsible for the Nazi Holocaust
- The Martin Luther celebrations in 1997 highlighted some
very uncomfortable facts that we are never taught at school. In 1524 during
the Peasants' Revolt, in tones indistinguishable from Hitler's, Luther,
the man who started the Protestant movement, incited the ruling princes
to massacre the insurgents:
- "A Prince can best obtain merit by shedding blood."
He stated, "One must dash these people in pieces, slaughter them,
stick them like pigs both in public and in private, whenever one gets the
- The resulting carnage left more than 100,000 dead. In
1543 Luther advised that the synagogues should be set on fire and Jewish
homes likewise destroyed. Now we can understand why the Bishop of Birmingham,
Dr. Hugh Montefiore, said that the Nazi Holocaust could never have taken
place had it not been for the theological thinking of Christendom about
Jews, and their ostracism by the Christians of Europe. I know it sounds
daft now but the Christians blamed the Jews for murdering their god. Look
up deicide in the dictionary: killing of a god! At his trial in 1946 the
Nazi Jew-baiter, Julius Streicher, actually claimed that Luther ought to
be in the dock. The Germans and Austrians are the same as most Irish people,
they actually believe in priestcraft. Therefore it was very easy for Hitler
to whip up hatred against the Jews.
- Keeping the Old-Boy Network Intact
- It is at this point that what seems to be ordinary priestly
suppressions things suddenly take on a more sinister complexion and turn
into an establishment conspiracy of awesome proportions. No doubt many
readers are wondering why our country's academics have not seen these simple
historical distortions. The sad answer is that every academic in this field
of research knows we have been fed a pack of lies, and therefore they are
just as guilty as the priests in censoring uncomfortable facts that belong
to the people. For example, the headmaster of my grammar school had a first
class honours degree in classics from Cambridge University. He made sure
he told us nothing about the Greek and Roman scientists, philosophers and
educationalists, just some nonsense about a virgin giving birth to the
creator of the universe two thousand years ago, and that this god is going
to forgive the sins of everybody who believes in him!
- Thankfully not all our teachers are selfish bigots, there
are many good people who care more about the future of humankind on this
planet then merely preserving their jobs and reputations. A few are no
longer prepared to live a lie and have decided to tell the truth.
- Please help to make Great Britain a democracy - disestablish
the Church, make the House of Lords an elected chamber, and do away with
the Religious Affairs Departments in our schools, in television, radio
and the press. The BBC for example takes about £10 million from our
licence fee for religious propaganda. Try and name as many people as you
can who have not ruthlessly used the Judaic-Christian ladder to get all
the top positions. You will not find many in politics, among head teachers,
owners of the press, television and radio stations, in the judiciary, armed
forces and especially in the unelected House of Lords.
