The Cesidian Credo and Prayers

While Cesidianism depends more on reason than faith, more on mathematics and geometry than scripture, that doesn't mean that there aren't any articles of faith in the Cesidian religion.

The Cesidian Credo is the principle article of faith of Cesidianism, and its recitation follows below.

Cesidian Credo

  1. I believe in God, King of the Gods, Lord of the Universe, Creator of Man.
  2. I believe in Christ, King of Kings, Lord of the Earth, Father of Mankind. He was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit, and born of the Virgin Mary. He has lived before as Adam and Buddha, and shall live again as Messiah.
  3. I believe in Angels, Holy Spirits, Workers of God, Guardians of the Earth.
  4. I believe in Adam, Buddha, Christ, and Messiah; four men, but one soul.
  5. I believe in reincarnation, and in everlasting life. Amen.
The Cesidian Credo is a summary of what Cesidians believe, as opposed to that which they managed to rationally figure out through Analytic Theology. If you believe God — plural, not singular here — is the King of all the Gods, and Lord of the universe; if you believe Yeshua is King of Kings, and Lord of the Earth; if you believe Angels are Holy Spirits, and workers of God; if you believe that Adam, Buddha, Yeshua, and Messiah are four men, but one soul, and this soul has reincarnated many times; then you are a Cesidian.

Other Articles of Faith

Other articles of faith of Cesidianism are based on dates. Yeshua was born in Bethlehem on Monday, October 9, in the year 5 BCE (Julian Date: 1719878.5). He died outside of Jerusalem on Friday, April 6, in the year 31 CE (JD: 1732475.5), at the approximate age of 34.5 years. We have the testimony of a woman that two days later, on Sunday, April 8, 31 CE (JD: 1732477.5), Yeshua was alive again (Julian Date Converter, 2007).

Table 1 below shows the dates for some events in the life of Yeshua (or Christian holidays) in Gregorian calendar style. Note that the dates in relation with Easter, that is, the dates of the Christian movable holidays, fell on the correct dates in the year 2007. So according to Cesidian articles of faith, the 2000th anniversary of Yeshua's birth, the real 'Y2K', occurred on Wednesday, October 9, 1996 (JD: 2450365.5).

These are not the only distortions of the Christian's Gregorian calendar, which gives the wrong year for the birth of Yeshua, but also the wrong month and day. Also the date of the Immaculate Conception can be scrutinised.

Table 1.

The Roman Catholic Church celebrates the Immaculate Conception of Yeshua on the date of December 8th every year. The Immaculate Conception, a solemnity, is also the patronal feast of the United States. It is one of the few Holy Days of obligation on the calendar of the Catholic Church. If we were to take the date of December 8th as something less than theoretical, and use it as the actual date of Yeshua's conception in the year 6 BCE, we would reach the following fairly accurate and scientific conclusions:
  1. The first day of Mary's last menstrual period occurred on November 24, in 6 BCE.
  2. The end of the first trimester of the pregnancy occurred on February 16, in 5 BCE.
  3. The end of the second trimester of the pregnancy occurred on May 31, in 5 BCE.
  4. Yeshua was born on August 30, in 5 BCE.
If the year of conception, on the other hand, had been 7 BCE, then Yeshua would have been born on around August 31, in 6 BCE, but this leaves only two possible dates for Yeshua's birth, either August 30th or the 31st, neither of which are solemnities, feasts, or memorials in the calendar of the Roman Catholic Church.

If we assume, on the other hand, that the Cesidian date of Yeshua's birth is correct, these are the following conclusions we can draw:
  1. Mary's Immaculate Conception occurred on the date of Monday, January 17, in 5 BCE.
  2. The end of the first trimester of the pregnancy occurred on Monday, March 27, in 5 BCE (12 weeks).
  3. The end of the second trimester of the pregnancy occurred on Monday, July 10, in 5 BCE (27 weeks).
  4. Yeshua was born on Monday, October 9, in 5 BCE (40 weeks or full term).
So the Immaculate Conception occurred on Monday, January 17, in 5 BCE, a date which is closer to the date of the Christian feast of the Epiphany (January 6th), than it is to the date of the Immaculate Conception in the Catholic holiday calendar.

Besides the Cesidian Credo, other Cesidian prayers are the Our Father, the Hail Mary, and the Glory be to the Father. The prayers follow below.

Our Father

Our Father, who dwells in space — may your name be honoured. May your Kingdom come, your will be done, on Earth as in space. Give us today our daily food, and forgive our sins, as we forgive those who have sinned against us. Save us from trial and tribulation, and deliver us from all evil. Amen.

Hail Mary (Hail Mayadevi or Hail Avalokiteshvara)

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with you. Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.

Glory be to the Father

Glory to the Father, the Son, and to the Holy Spirit: as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be forever. Amen.
