Overview

Pagan And Christian Creeds by Edward Carpenter

The subject of religious origins is complex and yields many aspects for consideration. In 1920, when Pagan & Christian Creeds was first published, few realized that Christianity had sprung from the same root as Paganism and shared by far most of its doctrines and rites.

In this classic study are considered three paths in the evolution of religion: the connection of religious rites and observations with the sun and other astronomical bodies, leading to the invention of remote deities in heaven; the second involving religion with the earth, nature, and seasonal changes; the third linking religion with the human body, aspects of fertility and undying life. So too covered is the process which divinities and demons were created and rites for their propitiation and placation established.

Contemporary readers seeking answers to the question of what caused the appearance of faith and the phenomenon of religion will find this book invaluable study.

I always knew that Christianity was a lie. I had known they had 'borrowed' pagan festivities and all to dupe the masses but it wasn't until I read this book that I realized the extant of the sham. It's definitely an eye-opener, and pagans and free thinkers must own a copy!
