Dear Reader

I haven't updated this site for many years. The Bible has so many errors in it, I could spend a lifetime writing about them. There is enough information on this site to convince all but hardened theists that the Bible should be retired to its rightful place next to pagan mythology.

In the years since, I came to the realization that religious thinking pemeates human society in ways that affects our health, our finances and our general well-being. Priestly castes in business, science and politics make their living off of keeping the general public alarmed and ignorant. You can do nothing. Or you can decide to take your life back. You don't need them.

It is in that spirit I've started a new site at the beginning of this year. rhewitt.com I hope you give it a try.


Secrets of the Bible - more secrets

The Holy Grail

We see the symbology of the Eucharist when the sun as personified by Jesus crosses the Fall Equinox. Sunsets begin to show more red as it sets lower in the horizon. The red symbolizes bleeding. When the sun is in Virgo, her sheaf of wheat represents bread. The Holy Grail as Crater catches the falling blood.

26Now as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed, and broke it, and gave it to the disciples and said, "Take, eat; this is my body."
27And he took a cup, and when he had given thanks he gave it to them, saying, "Drink of it, all of you;
28for this is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.
29I tell you I shall not drink again of this fruit of the vine until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father's kingdom." (Matt. 26:26; Mark 14:22-26; Luke 11:23-25; John 6:53-58; 1 Cor. 11:23-26)

51I am the living bread which came down from heaven; if any one eats of this bread, he will live for ever; and the bread which I shall give for the life of the world is my flesh." (John 6:51)

Hyperinflation Depression The mainstream media has been quiet about the economy lately, but you can't help notice sharp increases in food and gasoline. The Federal Government can't pay its bills with tax revenue and treasury bonds, and is financing its remaining deficits with new money. No one can predict with any certainty what course inflation will take, but it is certain that we are living in economically dangerous times.

How debt money goes broke Every dollar in circulation represents a dollar of debt and interest. The process is limited to the degree an economy can pay off the interest. Otherwise the compounding effect of interest outstrips any ability to pay down the debt.This is where the American economy is now. 4/5

Where was the media when the sub-prime disaster unfolded? Why you can't trust the mainstream media. I learned this lesson in the 60s by skimming through NY Times microfilms of the 1930s. Throughout those years, the Times parroted whatever their government sources told them. The people trusted government and the media and they paid dearly for it. Don't make that mistake. The links on politics and economics provide the sources you need to protect yourself while there is time. And there isn't much time left. 3/29

Complexity theory and environmental management Michael Chrichton explains why interference in complex systems almost always produce negative results. Complex systems include ecosystems, market economics, biological systems and climate. Keep this in mind when you read about government efforts to save the economy from falling.

Gallup says 9 in 10 Americans identify with Christianity in one way or another. Other studies below say Gallup's questions are not neutral and they encourage people to lie. Gallup also doesn't doesn't tell us to what degree people are religious. 12/26

How many Americans attend religious services and how many lie about going If the percentages stayed roughly the same as Gallup claims, total membership would increase as the population expanded. Instead we find that the American population has expanded 50% since 1960, yet church membership has remained static. 12/26

How Americans identify with religion There is a distinct trend away from Christianity and other oganized religions. Christianity has declined from 86% in 1990 to 77% in 2001. About 1/4 is devoutly religious. About 1/4 is secular. The remaining half is mildly interested in religion. 12/26
