The books, articles and web references I mention in this talk may be found at atheistscholar.org. This lecture will discuss the pagan roots of the Christian Church. We shall discuss how most of the present day rituals, vestments, holy objects, liturgy, and sermons of the Christian Church were rooted in the pagan cultures of the ancient world. Most of these customs were developed after the death of the apostles. I have already visited Jesus’ pagan roots (Please see AtheistScholar.org, “The Pagan Roots of Mary and Jesus” and the Bibliography after the written lecture.) in an earlier lecture, but I believe that it is important for atheists to learn, or to advance their knowledge, about the facts of the specific borrowings the Christian Church made from the pagan culture that it ultimately helped destroy. It is also important to learn some of the reasons for this theft from the earlier pagan culture. .
