indeed the bible is just a theory, and at that a theory that was derived from other beliefs since thousands of religions existed before
that's like me writing a book on the theory of relativity and putting my name in the title, 'the theory of relativity - by shaun'.
it's pretty much what the bible did. same stories, different names, same plot, different people, same myths and legends altered. after all you don't
want to make it too much like you copied someone elses myth...or did they merely copy...
According to Hindu literature, Krishna, the eighth incarnation of the god Vishnu, was born to the virgin Devaki in fulfilment of prophecy and was
visited by wise men that had been guided to him by a star. Angels also announced the birth to herdsmen in the nearby countryside. When King Kansa
heard about the miraculous birth of this child, he sent men to "kill all the infants in the neighbouring places," but a "heavenly voice" whispered
to the foster father of Krishna (who, incidentally, was a carpenter) and warned him to take the child and flee across the Jumna River... In this Hindu
legend, we can recognize many parallels to the infancy of Jesus other than the virgin birth element. Is this just coincidence, or is the bible’s
story of the virgin birth, wise men guided by a star just a Hindu legend with Jesus’ name in place of Krishna.
But surely they wouldn't copy anything other myths and legends...or did they?...
The name ‘Buddha’ never really associates with Christianity, yet you would be surprised to find out that his life was identical to that of Jesus
Christ. This ‘Buddha’ is not one person, it’s a compiled of legends, myths and other fairytales to create this ‘Buddha’, of which was
created many centuries before Jesus. Below are examples of how similar the life of Buddha was to Jesus:
* Buddha was born of the virgin Maya, who was considered the Queen of Heaven.
* He was of royal descent.
* He crushed a serpent's head.
* He performed miracles and wonders, healed the sick, fed 500 men from a small basket of cakes, and walked on water.
* He abolished idolatry, was a sower of the word, and preached the establishment of a kingdom of righteousness. He taught chastity, temperance,
tolerance, compassion, love, and the equality of all.
* He was transfigured on a mount.
* Buddha was crucified in a sin-atonement, suffered for three days in hell, and was resurrected.
* He ascended to heaven.
* Buddha was considered the Good Shepherd", the Carpenter, the Infinite and Everlasting.
* He was called the "Saver of the World" and the "Light of the World.
two legend/myths before Jesus, yet almost identical...mere copies or is the story of jesus still inspired by god, or perhaps god rips off other
religions by stealing their scriptures?...it's laughable, it really is.
