- 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 religious wars.
- 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 pig ignorance.
- 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.

Uncomfortable Historical Facts That We Are Never
At School in the Theocracy of Great

State are established - a form of government directed through a
- 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!

- 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

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
- 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 Empire.
- 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 by Christians.
- 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
- The Discovery That Reality Also Exists in the
- 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
- 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 conduct.
- The World Plunged into the Christian Dark
- 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
- 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
- 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 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
- 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.
