“It’s close to midnight and something evil’s lurking in the dark
Under the moonlight you see a sight that almost stops your heart
You try to scream but terror takes the sound before you make it
You start to freeze as horror looks you right between the eyes,
You’re paralyzed” I’m pretty sure if  Jesus was that “site” standing their these lyrics would apply to you!

In about an hour and a half the cult of Christianity will celebrate the erroneous day of Easter. Before I continue, I’m curious about something. Where is Easter in the bible? It’s only mentioned in Acts 12:4 KJV 4 And when he had apprehended him, he put him in prison, and delivered him to four quaternions of soldiers to keep him; intending after Easter to bring him forth to the people. In the other translations it is rendered correctly. Acts 12:4 RSV 4 And when he had seized him, he put him in prison, and delivered him to four squads of soldiers to guard him, intending after the Passover to bring him out to the people (passover). Now that that is out of the way, let’s briefly deal with the empty tomb. The cult of Christianity rises and falls on the Resurrection story. The problem is which story do you believe. If you take the gospel accounts individualy you have a mess on your hands, but if you read all four together, well you have a nice story that fits together neatly. Since I used the word “CASTIGATE(D) in all caps I must explain myself. In all the stories in all four gospels, was a male was present at the tomb. It was discovered by women. The same women that are told to shut up, learn in silence, you can’t govern over a man, open your legs when the man feels the need for selfish pleasure. I’m sure the scriptures can answer these claim. Math 28:1 28 Now after the sabbath, toward the dawn of the first day of the week, Mary Mag′dalene and the other Mary went to see the sepulchre. Mark 16:1 16 And when the sabbath was past, Mary Mag′dalene, and Mary the mother of James, and Salo′me, bought spices, so that they might go and anoint him. Luke 24:10 10 Now it was Mary Mag′dalene and Jo-an′na and Mary the mother of James and the other women with them who told this to the apostles; John 20.1  20 Now on the first day of the week Mary Mag′dalene came to the tomb early, while it was still dark, and saw that the stone had been taken away from the tomb. My question remains; where are the men? Maybe Paul the self anointed Apostle has something to say about the matter. 1Cor 15:3-8 3 For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received, that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the scriptures, 4 that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the scriptures, 5 and that he appeared to Cephas, then to the twelve. 6 Then he appeared to more than five hundred brethren at one time, most of whom are still alive, though some have fallen asleep. 7 Then he appeared to James, then to all the apostles. 8 Last of all, as to one untimely born, he appeared also to me. Do we see the problem. Paul, again the self appointed Apostle seems to create his own version of the story.

When it comes to women to do a thing right, why bother. They’re to scared, catty, terrified. Marks gospel says’ this Mark 16:8 8 And they went out and fled from the tomb; for trembling and astonishment had come upon them; and they said nothing to any one, for they were afraid. Luke explains it a different way. Luke 24:11 11 but these words seemed to them an idle tale, and they did not believe them. This is an interesting  footnote Luke 24:11 Other ancient authorities add verse 12, But Peter rose and ran to the tomb; stooping and looking in, he saw the linen cloths by themselves; and he went home wondering at what had happened. Next time remind the men that it was the women who discovered the empty tomb. That is if any of this isn’t simply tradition passed down, since none of the accounts match up and Paul differs with the gospel writers.
