Peoples of the Flavian Book

The Flavians were a dynasty of late first century Roman emperors, who were most famous for the destruction of Jerusalem in 70 CE. You have probably never heard of them; which only goes to show how successfully they deflected attention away from themselves and onto the religion they invented (Christianity), as well as its poor cousin, Judaism, which the Flavians also re-invented in a new role: the Chosen People cast upon their identity pedestal as eternally privileged ‘scapegoats’, the killers of Christ.

Meta-historical Manifesto

In the opening years of the 21st century, there is a growing sense that we are looking forward into an abyss, as environmental, economic and military catastrophes multiply and feed on one another. How has the human race gotten into such a predicament? We say the basic problem is that the wealthiest and most powerful elements of society, rely on carefully honed principles of psychological manipulation (that is, psychological warfare) to maintain their power. But this power can only be used for its own self-perpetuation, and not to solve the increasingly complex problems.

New Testament

Christianity is Flavian Vanity

The Flavian Caesars, Vespasian and Titus, invented Christianity, more or less in the form we know it today. Remarkably, the emperors left behind a veiled confession (or boast) of their work, embedded in the Gospels and the works of Josephus. The religion was invented as wartime propaganda, but has been successful beyond the Romans’ wildest dreams.

Richard Carrier: meet Barnum & Bailey.

In terms of Carrier’s hypothetical dilemma of a ‘minimal historical Christ’ vs. a purely ‘Mythical’ Christ, I don’t see why any serious mythicist should have a problem loudly proclaiming “BOTH”.

Mateo Piso Christ, Sun of Jane the Virgin

Is the popular CW telenovela series "Jane the Virgin" based on inside knowledge of Jesus's true paternity? That is, was Josephus really the son of Arrius Calpurnius Piso and Arria Calpurnia, the 'virgin' bride of the Roman emperor Caligula? And, was Josephus's life one of the significant typological sources for the fictional character of Biblical Jesus?

Old Testament

‎The ‘Genesis’ of Western False Dialectic in the Old Testament

While some Gentiles say that Jews are the source of all evil, some modern day Jews say that they have been, and still are, made scapegoats for the evils of ‘others’. We find this ironic because we assert that this was indeed the assigned role of the Jewish people from day one of their troubled existence. The role was created by the Persian clerical redactors of the Old Testament, and likely building upon the prior efforts of the Egyptians before them.

Abraham and the Sabian Legacy

The Bible describes an ancient, remarkably dysfunctional family, chosen and 'eternally blessed' by God to rule over their promised land. We are still dealing with the outcome over 3,000 years later. Indeed, the most important difference is that Abraham's veiled heirs, those ruling in the name of all the 'Abrahamic' religions, occupy a much larger amount of global real estate and other assets now.

Isaac and the Fortunate Scions

What better way to make people hate you, than to start out with the biblically inspired premise that ... uhm ... everyone hates you? This self-fulfilling prophecy is the black hole of the perverse and cynical nature of the Abrahamic divine plan and the false dialectic that we proposed. And imagine having to go through life with this heavy and cynical artificial chip yoked onto your shoulders. This was Isaac's "birthright".

The Aten Bomb: Cultural Fission and Conquest in Exodus

The Exodus emerges as a covert operation, and an act of synthetic culture creation. The voice of God (through Moses) is saying that he wants the Israelites, the slaves of Pharaoh, to go into a new land and conquer it. But really, it is Pharaoh who is directing the Israelites, as his front line troops, to go and conquer the land of the Canaanites.

Nukes R Us. (And, them.)

The reality is that nobody benefits from a nuclear war. NOBODY. But tens of millions die. And maybe everyone dies. Is this not something the propagandists know? Do they want to die?

Unacceptable Risk of Nuclear War

What would be an acceptable risk? One per cent? Ten per cent?  You wouldn’t get into an automobile every day with a 1% chance...

FCC: Net neutrality ends in 60 days

The loss of net neutrality will make it more challenging for small websites such as Postflaviana to connect with readers.

End Times Prophecy

Apocalypse How, Part 1

Global marker events foretold in the book of Revelation, are now occurring like falling dominoes, correctly starting in 2001. Revelation even provides some details that describe a select group of individuals that direct the global play, by virtue of their unique and secretive understanding.

Racism, Cultural Degradation, and Misplaced Paranoia

We use the Trump vs. Hillary reality show as an entrée 'door of perception' to examine the dark Romantic underbelly of racism in Western and American culture. It's all part of the larger tableau of Western society, with its central false dialectic cynically built upon the trope of anti-Judaism.

9/11: A Malapropic Myth-raic Mass

In the complex of events that transpired on 9/11/2001, I have discovered certain rather impressive, sequentially correct, parallel astronomical correlations, or rather 'signatures of human authorship' in my opinion, somewhat hidden in the plain sight of free computer software.

Even Jove G’nows

With the movie Jupiter Ascending, we are treated to a futuristic science fiction thriller by the Wachowskis. The obliviously self-important and arrogant Abrasax siblings seem to be a personification of whatever is wrong with our corporate industrial civilization. One can only rejoice at their comeuppance at the hands of the charming and humble Jupiter Jones and her friends of the intergalactic police.

Sheepdogs in Wolves’ Clothing

A frequent metaphoric trope underlying Christianity is that of the Good Shepherd, tending with loving care to his flock, bringing them back into the fold, and into his forgiving good graces. We must agree with the Church, that it is necessary to forgive these needy sheep. But, the real Sin is that via the blind acceptance of faith, they remain blissfully ignorant of the craven actions of the shepherds.

Black Collared Magic

The political terms “Left” and “Right” were first coined during the French Revolution, when they represented a stark binary simplicity: the supporters of the King seated on the Right, and their opponents, the revolutionaries, seated ironically on the … uhmm Republican … Left. This was remarkably similar to our Postflavian view: that the most fundamental political and economic struggle is that of the common people against the elite. Since 1789, we have seen a long struggle to obfuscate this simple class-based analysis, using whatever means necessary.
