was having a chat with someone the other day about that Da


War Hero
Found on Arrse

I was having a chat with someone the other day about that Da Vinci code book and expounded my theory, perhaps a slightly contentious one, that Jesus invented Christianity to skive a bit during basic training.

I've read a lot of historic articles and made a point of following traditional religious thinking, by putting two and two together and getting fifteen.

For those holy rollers amongs the larger Navy congregation, don't dismiss my theory out of hand.

At the time Jesus went through basic, the predominant faith was that of the Hebrew. Apparently, this really fcuked up Sundays for everyone, so the boy Jesus came up with a scheme, whilst he was doing a 7 day stretch at the Galilee pokey for not shaving. In a move later followed by L Ron Hubbard, Jesus dreamt up his new religion then squeezed it past the Pharisees at a Squadron do. Within a couple of weeks, Jesus was up the block drinking hibiscus tea, whilst all the Jews had to push out the prayer till well into the afternoon.

I have established through extensive research that the 12 apostles were a gang of disgruntled trainee REME fitters, who followed their 'fisher of men' solely so that they could wa-nk themselves daft with no fear of being caught.

It's a lot to take in, I know, so i'll leave it for now, but I ask you to consider a couple of things.

40 days in the wilderness. Is it such a stretch of credulity to acknowledge that this equates to a five and a half week stretch in the nick. It was well known that Jesus had a temper, particularly after Grolsch. The elders in his squadron were notorious wind up merchants, and a snapper like Hay-soose would be in and out of the guardroom all the time.

The resurrection - Jesus dies. Three days later they go to check on him and find that he has disappeared. This phenomenon has been repeated down the years by all Jesus' followers in basic. How many times have you took the recruits round areas in the morning, only to find that each time you turn round, one of their number has mysteriously vanished. A direct correlation, I would suggest.

I would be very interested to hear if any others have had similar thoughts about the origins of Christianity. Examples of biblical references to contemporary squaddie life are especially welcome.

Sounds to me that JC was a bootneck on a run ashore and everyone took his actions the wrong way....

No stranger than some of the other theories that have been discussed over time.

One of his oppo's was Buffer on some OPV I think. They were always fecking about on trawlers examining the catch.

I think Jesus probably wanted to go into the scran department as he was always trying new menus to improve the watch keeprs fish finger butty. All the 4 o'clockers done with a loaf and a packet of findus? F**king hell think what he could do with an OFCS!

They also had the first dispatch rider, cos you could hear Josephs Triumph throughout the land.

He was definitely Jewish though, turning water into wine when the rest of his mates had to buy theirs from the NAAFI

Then there was the time he was run in for improperly leaving the ship during a storm on the Sea of Gallilee. He got off that one because his DO pointed out that nothing in Pharasees Regulations for the Hebrew Navy prohibits walking on water.
