"Covert Messiah"

Hey, everyone! I haven't been on the site in a while, and I hope each of you is doing well :)
I wasn't sure what section was best suited for this. Joseph Atwill is proposing that Christianity was a ploy created by aristocrats in order to force a certain social stratification. It's a theory I've personally never seen proposed, but he's teamed up with the author of "Jesus Never Existed" so that sounds like a fun time. :roll:

I guess we will all have a better scope of what Atwill has to say once the conference actually occurs.

Mr Silvertusk has informed us of this ''conference'' in his topic Well its all over in the Christian Chit-chat forum. Take a look.

If they had a social gospel in the days of the prodigal son, somebody would have given him a bed and a sandwich and he never would have gone home.

Inlovewiththe44,

Here's the link to the thread:

John 5:24

Ahh thank you so much. I tried to do a search of the guy doing the conference and the title of the conference, but nothing came up!
