Pictures are taken from various sources for spreading knowledge; this is a non- commercial blog.

Historians who wrote Christian history say that at least 70 out of 266 Popes were murdered or died in mysterious or suspicious circumstances. Wikipedia has given a list of at least 40 such Popes.

Another interesting thing about past popes is majority of them were from Italy.

Current Pope Francis is the first person to come from the Americas. He is an Argentinian.

One more interesting thing about the Popes is the average length of their Popehood. Historians give 20 to 25 years per king. Hindu history shows that Gurus or religious teachers lead their group for more years. The average may be 30 to 50 years per Guru. But surprisingly we have 265 Popes for a period of 2000 years. That is an average of less than 8 years per Pope. This confirms the conspiracy theories, murders and violence surrounding Popes.

History of Bible is more interesting. In the beginning Popes ruled that no one should possess a Bible and they should handle it only inside the Churches. Later, Bibles were sold with Pope’s permission to selected people. Not everyone can hold it. Later, there was big opposition for PRINTING Bible when Gutenberg invented printing machine. All these began with King Constantine burning all Bibles except one version in the fourth century. The reason was various Bibles had various stories which were contradictory like Hindu Puranas. Despite this, there are contradictory versions in Dead Sea scrolls and the Greek Bible in the British Library. There is tremendous pressure from vested interests not to publish those contradictions. There are 2000 differences or mistakes in the current Bible compared to Greek Version. In the beginning Bible was in Greek and Hebrew languages only. Even the later English Bible is constantly updated or altered with new English words or sentences till this day.

Old Tamil Bible has more Sanskrit words than Tamil words, they say.

History of Christian denominations is more interesting and there are over 200 Christian sects. Some even oppose celebrating Christmas. Syrian Orthodox, Greek Russian and Protestant movements are well known. The schism started in 11th century.

One of the Popes was jailed in France for eight years. No one came for his support or help.

Inquisition killed thousands of people. Women who opposed Christianity were burnt alive as witches including the most famous Saint Joan of Arc. A lot of Gypsies of Indian origin were also killed in such bonfires. It became part of untold and unsung stories.

History shows that Spanish and Portuguese did more violence ‘in the name of Christ’ than any other Christian sect. They wiped out the ancient South and Central American civilisations. Though Europeans from other countries went to the Americas and Australia, Pacific Islands ,South Africa and India and massacred natives, aborigines and others, it was mainly for political reasons. They wanted to occupy those lands or plunder gold and diamond.

India became a world wonder in the eyes of Christians and Muslims. Wherever they went they changed the entire country or region to their side except India. It remains a predominantly Hindu land till this day.

I am attaching a paper cutting from Daily Mail dated 1-12-2001 and Wikipedia Popes list who died in violence.

List of popes who died violently           

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Jump to navigationJump to search

A collection of popes who have had violent deaths through the centuries. The circumstances have ranged from martyrdom (Pope Stephen I)[1] to war (Lucius II),[2] to a beating by a jealous husband (Pope John XII). A number of other popes have died under circumstances that some believe to be murder, but for which definitive evidence has not been found.

Martyr popes[edit]

This list is incomplete; you can help by expanding it.

In tradition, the first pope, Saint Peter, was crucified upside-down.
