OriginEdit

John Marco Allegro (1923 - 1988) was an English archaeologist, amateur mycologist and Dead Sea Scrolls scholar. He popularized the Dead Sea Scrolls through his books and radio show. He was the editor and writer of some of the most famous and controversial scrolls published, especially "The Sacred Mushroom and the Cross". It was his most popular book granting him fame and notoriety but it also destroyed his career. Envious of more popular radio pastors at the time, such as Harold Camping, he argued that Christianity began as a shamanistic cult. Pushing the theory that Christianity was a myth. Allegro put forth a theory that the authors of the Christian gospels wrote the books based off second hand stories, confusing the meaning of these stories. A main argument was that the Dead Sea Scrolls all but proved that a historical Jesus never existed.
