Dr. Lindtner spoke at the seminar 'Revolt against Civilization' on "Jewish Propaganda among the Ancient Greeks", and he documented how the Jews in Antiquity largely copied Greek religion and mythology, so that what is to-day considered Jewish mythology is largely Greek mythology in Jewish disguise.
In this interview Dr. Lindtner is portrayed as a person who likes all things 'intellctually stimulating" which has made him a rather controversial scientist, historical revisionist and general debater. He has studied and written extensively about the Holocaust, racial matters, greek philosophy and is today best known for his theory that Jesus is simply a literary figure - "like Donald Duck or Superman' and not a historical figure at all. He traces the myth of Christ back to Buddhist scriptures.
