Eucharist

Opening paragraph of the 1756 Eucharist article, written by Edme Mallet, of volume six of Denis Diderot's Encyclopedia, wherein the article on "cannibalism" is cross-referenced as a "see also", the sly barbed joke (Blom, 2010) being that Christians are cannibals for "eating their god" . Correctly, the eating of the "body of Jesus" wafers, is a Roman recension of the Egyptian ritual of eating "Osiris bread cakes" amid the harvest of the crops, during or after the Khoiak festival[1], Osiris being a green-faced crop god.

In religio-mythology, Eucharist (LH:2), from eu- meaning “well” + -kharis meaning “favor, grace”[2], is an annual ritual in Christianity, wherein people go to church and eat bread wafers, put in their mouth by a priest, which they chase down with a shot of wine; the bread and the wine said to be symbolic of the eating the body and blood, respectively, of Jesus Christ; the ritual itself considered symbolic of the "last supper" of Jesus. The entire ritual, is a Roman recension (300AD) monotheistic rescript of the polytheistic "last supper" of Osiris, the annual eating of "Osiris cakes", and wine drinking at the time of the Egyptian crop harvest, following the Nile flood.

Overview

Etymology

The term “Charis” (or Kharis), of note, in Greek mythology, was the name of the wife of Hephaestus. She was one of the three so-called “Kharities”, who were attendants of the goddesses Aphrodite and Hera.[3] The connection of this "Charis" etymology in Christianity, via Osiris, his wine (note: Dionysus the Greek god of wine is the Greek god character rescript of Osiris), and Osiris cakes ritual, is a bit puzzling? We also note that "Father Karras" was the main character in the 1971 film Exorcist.

Last supper | Osiris + Jesus

In c.300AD, the myth of the “last supper” of Osiris, prior to his death and resurrection, was rescripted into the story of the “last supper” of Jesus, prior to his death and resurrection.[4]

In c.500AD, religious ritual of making “Osiris cakes” (aka corn mummies) and drinking the wine of Osiris, became rescripted into the story that Jesus offered bread and wine to the people during his last supper, telling them that the bread was his physical body and the wine was his physical blood, which became the basis of the church ritual of giving congregation members bread wafers and wine, as symbolic of the Jesus last supper story.

Transubstantiation

The confused part of the “bread” being the “body of Jesus” came to be known as the doctrine of “transubstantiation”[5], wherein children are told, up to the present day, that they are “eating god”, which tends to be one of the first things children, age five to seven, object to as a top religious doctrine that does not make sense; for example:

“Eating the wafer and turning into the body of Christ—transubstantiation; they tried to explain it to me, but I was like: ‘what do you mean that I’m eating him?’ ”
— Martina (2015), polled response[6] on earliest memory (age 6-7) of being taught a religious concept that didn’t make sense, Jul

In 1612, Johannes Kepler, move from Prague to Linz, Austria, where he taught astrology and astronomy at a district school, during which time he was excluded from Eucharist, owing to his astronomy-conflicting theology.

Cannibalism

A video summary of how Denis Diderot secretly added a "cannibalism" (Caraibes or Cannibalies) see also to the Eucharist article of his Encyclopedia.[7]

In 1756, in the Eucharist article[8] of volume six of Denis Diderot's Encyclopedia, written by French theologian Edme Mallet (1713-1755)[9], a “see: cannibalism” cross-reference was famously placed at the end of the article.[10] A link to the "cannibalism" is also a "see also" to this article (see below). Diderot, we note, who presumably, as editor, added in the cross-reference, is the presumed so-called "patron saint" of Wikipedia:

Diderot is the patron saint of Wikipedia.”
Jimmy Wales (c.2018), “Comment to Andrew Curran”[11]

A cannibalism "see also" link, however, is not found in any language edition of the Wikipedia article on Eucharist, not even the French language version?[12]

Moving forward near three centuries, we seem to have retrograded three millennia in light? Try adding a "cannibalism" see also to Wikipedia, and see how quickly, in hours or days, one becomes banned from Wikipedia.

Quotes

The following are related quotes:

“Those who are called Papists eat god without bread, the Lutherans eat bread and god, while the Calvinists, who came soon after them, eat bread without eating god.”
Voltaire (c.1760), Publication (pg. #)[13]
