Caesar's messiah

http://www.amazon.com/Caesars-Messia...3321683&sr=1-1

Anyone read this? The theory that christianity was created by Josephus and the Flavian court to prevent another uprising of the uppity rebels of Judea is interesting. It even tries to explain why there are 4 different "finding the empty tomb" stories.
All in all, more believable than than the traditional christian fable.

Ah - another ol' timer resurrected eh? Welcome back.
The jaysus-caesar thing has done the rounds a few times:

Usually, anything with Cal's backing turns out to be a complete load of bollocks and I vagueley recall Steve G ripping apart one of his anal-yses on the subject, but I stand to be corrected.
