The “James” in James T. Kirk = James the Just

Each day I do a blog search for anything written about James the Just or the Epistle of James. This time, I found a real gem! T. J. Sode writes:

Did you know that the original Star Trek was a subliminal attempt by the Roman Catholic Church to convert the masses back to true Christianity? Who is the Captain of the Enterprise? James Tiberius Kirk. James is the brother of Jesus, and after the crucifixion, James became the leader of the early sect. Tiberius was a Roman emperor. Kirk is the most common European spelling for the English word “church.” James T. Kirk = Jesus, Roman, church. We have a Kirk or church flying through space, representing an unseen Starfleet.

Of course, Sode goes on to explain some “fascinating” connections between Spock (who represents Satan) and McCoy (who represents the “true faith”). Don’t you just love speculative “exegesis?” I wonder if there are any Trekkies out there who could chime in… Are there other connections between James T. Kirk and James the Just?

  1. “In an insane world the sane man must appear insane”
    –Spock

    “The time is coming when people will be insane, and when they see someone who is not insane, they will attack that person saying: You are insane because you are not like us.”
    –Abba Anthony (circa 350 AD)

  2. It is nice to see that someone looked at my blog. The whole point of the essay was to show how foolish conspiracy theories are.

  3. It is not make-believe. It is a real conspiracy theory at least according to a book I was reading about the history of conspiracy theories. People have believed some wild stuff from fake moon landings to the Kennedy assisination.

  4. Wow. That’s amazing. Again, it’s amazing what someone’s imagination can do to piece together various unconnected data to come up with a conspiracy! I need to find one that I can start promulgating…

  5. I thought Spock had Jewish roots, ie. the connection between the “live long and prosper”+ hand split, which is very similar to the priestly upraised hand in shin-shape to deliver hte priestly blessing from Num. 6:24 “the LORD bless you and keep you.”

    OTOH, if we’re going with wacky conspiracy theories, perhaps the Catholic wanted to demonize the Jewish aspect. Eye roll.
