1. Both were conceived of a virgin.
2. Both were the "only begotten son" of a god (either Osiris or Yahweh)
3. Horus's mother was Meri, Jesus's mother was Mary.
4. Horus's foster father was called Jo-Seph, and Jesus's foster father was Joseph.
5. Both foster fathers were of royal descent.
6. Both were born in a cave (although sometimes Jesus is said to have been born in a stable).
7. Both had their coming announced to their mother by an angel.
My perspective is different because I am an Anunnaki physicist of all things with as much schooling as Neo, but without the kung fu and guns.

Considering that Jesus never existed, of course it's a hoax!

I'm getting a good laugh out of all the attention this hoax has drawn. But what do I know, I'm just a crazy Atheist!
Religion's very roots go way, way back to the fear of the Sun dying and primitive people not only fearing freezing to death but also the death of their crops (after they learned farming, of course) and the loss of light (to see by) in general. Thus the significance of December 25th--the Winter Solstice. The ancients believed that the Sun was literally Sacrificing itself for us, shedding its heat and warmth for Us to live. Thus the Sun is God (read as "Son of God") and is "reborn" at this time of year. Some religions even demanded human sacrifices to allow this cycle to continue. Really, that's the whole crux of Where it call came from. The very seed. Christianity alone is a cheap hack rewrite of the Egyptian, Sumerian, and much older religions which clearly reflect (pun!) this. The same basic stories are all there, but the names and places have changed.
For instance, Ziusudra from Sumerian scripture was renamed Noah; while Cain and Abel are Set and Osiris from Egyptian, Eve coming from Adam's rib is from the Sumerian Epic of Enki, etc.
For just a quick sampling of a few pre-Christian sun gods checkout Hermes, Mirtha and Osiris--all three were virgin births (their Father was God), were born around December 25th, and had the usual violent deaths followed by resurrections and plenty of worship. You can find a dozen more easily--or renames of the above in different religions. More to the point, there are many, many more gods in the distant past with similarities to Christ (over 18 crucified Pagan gods alone); and yet nobody worships or believes in them today. The Greek gods alone are jokes today. They've all been buried and overwritten by Christ (but ask anyone in America today and you'll typically get a response something like "Because we know better now. We worship the Right god Now!"--Yeah, because his predecessors were wiped from history!). Read between the lines and the Bible is a metaphorical transcription of a book on Astrology. The 12 Tribes of Israel/Disciples of Christ are the twelve signs of the Zodiac.
Jesus himself is an entity which will appear in a cloud (the sky), walks on water (ever watch sunshine dance across the surface of a lake or sea?), turned water to wine (sunshine on grapes, plus rainfall, yields wine)... Jesus is the Sun of god--Literally. What the Chuch doesn't want you to know is that Christianity began between 40 to 100 years After the supposed crucifixion of Christ. Some even go as far as saying 300 years, going strictly by existing documents. It's worse than the Roswell Crash (at least we know exactly where and when the saucer/s crashed--and it's documented, plus a few eyewitnesses are still alive today as of this writing!). That's when the earliest gospels were written on him (some say by the Freemasons, but let's not point fingers now!) because there never was an original Jesus Christ to be crucified--it's again all a made-up, hack of older religions. Religions you're not supposed to know about (and bibles of which have been conveniently Burned). The Church says thousands of people witnessed it, but History denies all of it. No genuine writings date back to historically confirm such a world-shattering event. Nothing. Despite this in 313 A.D. the Roman Emperor named Constantine made Christianity the official religion of the empire and it just took off from there to what it is today. Now speaking of the Romans, and for that matter the Greeks and other societies of that period in ancient history, you would think that there would be statues of Christ and, of course, His actual writings (as opposed to third-hand accounts which is all the Bible is composed of) but there is Nothing. Not even an autograph! Not even a 2-page scribble journal (like: "January, 21 A.D.- Healed dying child."). Doesn't exist! Where are His great writings? I want to read His writings! Even the ancient ancients have left stone tablets and cave paintings. Today we can study the writings of Caesar, Plato, Aristotle, Aurelius, Cicero...you name the guy and he's got volumes, and busts. Jesus Christ has 0. Everything else are stories About Him and After Him, but not one word in writing attributed to Jesus himself. Even all of today's colorful artwork of J.C. are strictly modern artists' interpretations hundreds of years After the supposed man lived and was nailed up. That's a pretty pathetic batting average for The Son Of God! But we've got bibles and they're apparently Good Enough to fill-in for the real deal. Needless to say, biblical stories are childrens' morality fables, not historical accounts! It would be like using "Little Red Riding Hood" as proof for the existence of werewolves!
The agency says the text contains spelling errors and moreover, the writing is in Modern Assyrian, which was standardized in the 1840s.
I also think the Vatican knows this and so has made a formal request to examine the document.
