Here I found this to show the story of Jesus is through all religions the names change but the story remains. So you may try to discount Christanity but in so doing you would also have to discount all of these Religions as well many much older than Christianity. This increases my faith in the Jesus I believe in (The Adam Kadman) as the Buddhist would say (The Primordial Buddha) from the begining a story of our potentale as humans. Namasté Wade The Jesus story incorporated elements from the tales of other deities recorded in this widespread area, such as many of the following world saviors and "sons of God," most or all of whom predate the Christian myth, and a number of whom were crucified or executed.33a Adad of Assyria Adonis, Apollo, Heracles ("Hercules") and Zeus of Greece Alcides of Thebes Attis of Phrygia Baal of Phoenicia Bali of Afghanistan Beddru of Japan Buddha of India Crite of Chaldea Deva Tat of Siam Hesus of the Druids Horus, Osiris, and Serapis of Egypt, whose long- haired, bearded appearance was adopted for the Christ character34 Indra of Tibet/India Jao of Nepal Krishna of India Mikado of the Sintoos Mithra of Persia Odin of the Scandinavians Prometheus of Caucasus/Greece Quetzalcoatl of Mexico Salivahana of Bermuda Tammuz of Syria (who was, in a typical mythmaking move, later turned into the disciple Thomas35) Thor of the Gauls Universal Monarch of the Sibyls36 Wittoba of the Bilingonese Xamolxis of Thrace Zarathustra/Zoroaster of Persia Zoar of the Bonzes The Major Players Buddha Although most people think of Buddha as being one person who lived around 500 B.C.E., the character commonly portrayed as Buddha can also be demonstrated to be a compilation of godmen, legends and sayings of various holy men both preceding and succeeding the period attributed to the Buddha.37 The Buddha character has the following in common with the Christ figure:38 Buddha was born of the virgin Maya, who was considered the "Queen of Heaven."38a He was of royal descent. He crushed a serpent's head. Sakyamuni Buddha had 12 disciples.38b He performed miracles and wonders, healed the sick, fed 500 men from a "small basket of cakes," and walked on water.38c He abolished idolatry, was a "sower of the word," and preached "the establishment of a kingdom of righteousness."38d He taught chastity, temperance, tolerance, compassion, love, and the equality of all. He was transfigured on a mount. Sakya Buddha was crucified in a sin-atonement, suffered for three days in hell, and was resurrected.38e He ascended to Nirvana or "heaven." Buddha was considered the "Good Shepherd"39, the "Carpenter"40, the "Infinite and Everlasting."40a He was called the "Savior of the World" and the "Light of the World." Horus of Egypt The stories of Jesus and Horus are very similar, with Horus even contributing the name of Jesus Christ. Horus and his once-and-future Father, Osiris, are frequently interchangeable in the mythos ("I and my Father are one").41 The legends of Horus go back thousands of years, and he shares the following in common with Jesus: Horus was born of the virgin Isis-Meri on December 25th in a cave/manger42, with his birth being announced by a star in the East and attended by three wise men.43 He was a child teacher in the Temple and was baptized when he was 30 years old.44 Horus was also baptized by "Anup the Baptizer," who becomes "John the Baptist." He had 12 disciples. He performed miracles and raised one man, El-Azar- us, from the dead. He walked on water. Horus was transfigured on the Mount. He was crucified, buried in a tomb and resurrected. He was also the "Way, the Truth, the Light, the Messiah, God's Anointed Son, the Son of Man, the Good Shepherd, the Lamb of God, the Word" etc.
This book, "Little Pope Peep", is excellent. We wrote to address connected to it, but no response. We have many who want copies, would like more. Is it possible to contact the author in some way? Noticed some Christian links now with the posts. Has he recanted this work?
Gillar om det du skrev! Spännande att se lite schyssta saker och inte endast det vanliga grejerna som man kan läsa om varje dag. ;)
