Jesus looked as the Christian church presents him.
Q. Yes way? No way?
A. No way.
If I asked one thousand, one million or one hundred million Christians to describe the way that Jesus looked when he was supposedly alive I would surely have the same answer from everyone; brown hair, blue eyes, brown beard and those people would be right in their mind but completely wrong in the reality of life. Who could blame them? The only description that they’ve ever been given of a living Jesus, all of their life, has come from one of their church salespersons (priests or ministers) who are there to insure that followers believe what they want them to believe in order to collect as much money as they can from every single one of them.
Hi! If you’re reading this blog it’s surely because the title caught your eye and that you’re curious enough to find out as to what I have to say on the subject. Before I go any further, I feel that I must first congratulate you for being curious because curious people learn more things than their non-curious counterparts and I sincerely hope that you’ll be happy to go to sleep tonight with a little more knowledge.
It doesn’t really matter that you’re a practicing Christian or a convert to atheism, I’m sure that after you’ve finished reading this blog, you’ll never see Jesus in the same way that you’ve ever done before and that you’ll ask yourself questions as to why you were lied to by priests or ministers for so many years.
Next to the curiosity in your mind you must surely think that a guy like me, who’s going against such popular beliefs, mustn’t have all of his marbles. Well it’s that I’ve learned in the past that if you repeat something often enough, long enough and on a constant basis, you’ll eventually have some people who will believe you, no matter what it is that you say. As an example there’s a group of people in the U.S.A. that, after being told so many times that the moon landing of July nineteen sixty-nine by U.S. astronauts is a hoax, actually believes it is so. There’s another group in the same country that believes that the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the two NYC World Trade Center towers along with the one on the Pentagon building in Arlington County, Virginia were an inside job. Those people have also been told this many times and believe what they’ve been told. That’s how successful publicity on television, radio and in paper form works, repetition, repetition, repetition, a method that was picked-up, in the past, by advertisers from studying the Christian churches’ methods of operation.
I now invite you to read the following which is an extract from an unpublished manuscript called: “The legend of Jesus “, © 2008 by Jean-Paul Gosselin. Read it carefully and take time to reflect on it. You’ll soon realize that what you’ve read isn’t so crazy after all. Enjoy!
The businessmen who started the mind dominating, very lucrative, tax-exempt business called the catholic (Christian) religion in Europe were amazing marketing geniuses for their time and “attractive packaging” was one of their most impressive realization.
In the bible, written by and for the catholic (Christian) church, we are told that Jesus was born in Palestine. The people born there are Arabs and physical characteristics of Arab men born in non-mixed families (I’m sure that there were no mixed families in the small, backward village of Nazareth at the time when Jesus was supposedly conceived) are that they all have BLACK hair, BLACK eyes and BLACK beards. Have you ever seen a painting or statue of any biblical figure (including Jesus) represented by that church, bearing those features? No.
Instead all of them display brown hair, brown or blue eyes and, in the case of men, brown beards and all of them (take a good look at them) are represented as being so damn good looking (Hollywood style ) that you can’t see a crooked nose or a crossed eye on any of them. Hum.
Had Leonardo, a man who had a mind of his own, spent time in Palestine I can guaranty you that his painting of the last supper would look much different from what it actually does.
Do you suppose that they did that in order to have an easier time selling their story and developing their business in Europe?
It’s for you to judge Pauline.

Take this with you.
The man and his wife go to see the chief instructor at the ski resort for another lesson and ask him if they can have the same instructor that they had the previous weekend.
“ What’s his name? “ he asked.
“ We can’t remember?”
“What does he look like?”
“We can’t remember that either but we do remember that he had two assholes” said the woman.
“Two assholes, hey. How so?”
“Well”, said the man. “When we were coming down the slope with him last Saturday, a fellow instructor asked him: How are you doing with your two ass holes?”
Have a swell day, stay relaxed, have a beer and don’t forget: keep smiling. Life is good. Buena la vida. La vie est belle.
