Ah, I do apologize I meant no offence to the religion just because it may be based on somethings doesn't mean the message is any less worthy. But
yes, some of those "facts" cannot be fully verified but the birth dates and their resurrection of sorts can be from multiple sources. December 25th
is a hugely common date in myths and religions as I'm sure you know.
Another example could be Odin: I know that I hung on a windy tree
nights all nine,
wounded with a spear and given to Odin,
myself to myself,
on that tree of which no man knows from where its roots run
No bread did they give me nor a drink from a horn,
downwards I peered,
I took up the runes,
screaming I took them,
then I fell back from there
While it is not actually about crucification it is a bout a self imposed sacrifice, and not mention the spear which is mentioned in both legends. Who
knows maybe it's possible God sent multiple "sons" that to help humanity?
Overall the legend of Jesus was taken from and has been the basis for:
Chrishna of Hindostan.
Budha Sakia of India.
Salivahana of Bermuda.
Zulis, or Zhule, also Osiris and Orus, of Egypt.
Odin of the Scaudinavians.
Crite of Chaldea.
Zoroaster and Mithra of Persia.
Baal and Taut, "the only Begotten of God," of Phenicia.
Indra of Thibet.
Bali of Afghanistan.
Jao of Nepaul.
Wittoba of the Bilingonese.
Thammuz of Syria.
Atys of Phrygia.
Xaniolxis of Thrace.
Zoar of the Bonzes.
Adad of Assyria.
Deva Tat, and Sammonocadam of Siam.
Alcides of Thebes.
Mikado of the Sintoos.
Beddru of Japan.
Hesus or Eros, and Bremrillah, of the Druids.
Thor, son of Odin, of the Gauls.
Cadmus of Greece.
Hil and Feta of the Mandaites.
Gentaut and Quexalcote of Mexico.
Universal Monarch of the Sibyls.
Ischy of the Island of Formosa.
Divine Teacher of Plato.
Holy One of Xaca.
Fohi and Tien of China.
Adonis, son of the virgin Io of Greece.
IxiOn and Quirinus of Rome.
Prometheus of Caucasus.
Mohamud, or Mahomet, of Arabia.
Some were crucified, some were born of immaculate conception, all received divine honors most were worshiped as gods or sons of Gods, though I think
the main legend of Jesus was taken from none other then HERCULES! That's right, born of a god impregnating a human, 12 disciples are replaced with 12
trials and crucification is replaced with lighting himself on fire.
And don't get me started on what Islam is taken thing, they even talk of Jesus in the Koran and pieced Mohhamed together from several arabian war
heroes and princes in legends.
But yeah I was under the impression all those facts were recorded thanks you making me double check and learning something new.
ALL SEEING EYE: No, I was not aware of any additional knowledge, I was never as dedicated to the religion and stopped going to Synagogue when I came
to Aus except on holidays and the like. But yeah all religions are beautiful in their own right as in the message, but the fillers were what made me
leave, those little details in between the larger picture that just like catholics separate them from the real world.
Though I will admit even if I knew of the knowledge I would never had stayed, why would I stick to something that was going to control every aspect of
my life simply for some extra information I never agreed with in the first place? In the sense of the people and they're control over everything it
not beautiful at all though. As with any aforementioned "shameful" religion, it is not the teachings that are shameful it what the people have done
with those teachings that is.
