- The early founders of Christianity seem wholly unaware of the idea of a human Jesus
- The Jesus of the Gospels bears a striking resemblance to other ancient heroes and the figureheads of pagan savior cults

“Zeitgeist: The Movie” is a 2007 documentary film by Peter Joseph. Below is Part I of the documentary, called “The Greatest Story Ever Told”:
The more you begin to investigate, what we think we understand, where we came from, what we think we are doing, the more you begin to see we’ve been lied to by every institution. What makes you think for one minute that the religious institution is the only one that has never been touched? The religious institutions in this world are at the bottom of the dirt. The religious institutions in this world are put there by the same people who gave you your government, your corrupt education, who set up your international banking cartels. We have been misled, away from the true and divine presence of the universe that men have called “god”. I don’t know what god is, but I know what he isn’t. And unless and until you are prepared to look at the whole truth, wherever it may go, whoever it may lead to, the more you educate yourself, the more you understand where things come from, the more obvious things become, and you being to see lies everywhere. You have to know the truth and seek the truth and the truth will set you free.
