For those of you who have been Conscious for some time, you know that Christianity is both a recent invention, and the product of African spirituality.
True seekers of knowledge know that the Bible that we have today was compiled 400 years after the (assumed) death of Christ, and that it was edited and reinterpreted during a series of meetings held in Europe. In these meetings, religious figures would come together to decide what the people should believe, and edited the Bible to reflect those beliefs.
We know that the First Council of Nicaea (325 A.D.) established the date of Easter as the first Sunday after the full moon (the Paschal Full Moon) following the northern hemisphere’s vernal equinox. Ecclesiastically, the equinox is reckoned to be on 21 March (even though the equinox occurs, astronomically speaking, on 20 March in most years), and the “Full Moon” is not necessarily the astronomically correct date.
The date of Easter therefore varies between 22 March and 25 April. Eastern Christianity bases its calculations on the Julian calendar whose 21 March corresponds, during the 21st century, to 3 April in the Gregorian calendar, in which the celebration of Easter therefore varies between 4 April and 8 May.
So the date of Easter, the most important date in all of Christianity, varies between March 20th and May 8th.
And most scholars believe that Easter gets its name from Eostre or Ostara, a Germanic pagan goddess. English and German are two of the very few languages that use some variation of the word Easter (or, in German, Ostern) as a name for this holiday.
My birthday is on the same day every year. If my remains survive 2,000 years, those who see my tomb will know the day I was born (and the day I died). We are able to accurately maintain records of all the events around the life and times of Jesus Christ (just like we know Caesar was born on July 4, 100 BC and died on 15 March 44 BC), but no dates directly relate to the birth, life and death of the most important man ever to live?!
We post pieces like this to inspire critical thinking and curiosity. Once a mind begins to consciously challenge the construct of the matrix and pay attention to factual evidence, then that mind can start to disassemble illusion.
In my quest to understand the true origins of Christianity, my research has led me back to Africa, and to some of the oldest Black cultures on the planet. The first African Genesis story I came across was the Story of Ausar.
But there are three creation stories remarkably similar to those found in Genesis, but that predate Christianity by thousands of years. Reading these might help you understand that the belief system you practice actually came from Africa, and has been bastardized and infected with white values.
