Horus - This is probably the oldest (3000BC) incarnation of the Jesus myth. There are about 15 different incarnations of Horus, as each priest over the 2500 years that he was worshipped added their own ideas.
Horus was the son of Isis-Meri and Osiris. Osiris was dead (not in this world) at the time of conception of Horus. Horus was adorned by three wise men or magi at his birth, who followed a shining star. Horus was a teacher at age 12, he was baptised at 30 and then betrayed after ministering to the people and performing miracles. He was known as "lamb of God" and "light of the world". He was crucified and was buried, only to arise three days later.
Horus is characteristically shown with the head of an eagle. He is also the deity that leads the judged when their hearts are weighed against a feather, as shown below in the Book of the Dead:-
Mithra - appears at least by 670BC with the first Persian empire. Zoroastrian texts state that Ahura Mazda (The Zoroastrian God) declares to Zoroaster that Mithra is "to be as worthy of sacrifice and as worthy of prayer as myself". Born to a virgin on 25 December, he was known as the "light", "redeemer", "enemy of darkness" and "judge of souls", the last being his official title within Zoroastrian custom. He was part of a trinity of protectors of the universe. He entered the mortal realm where he was betrayed, killed and then resurrected into light and air where he now guides souls to Paradise.
Dionysus - Ancient Greece. Dionysus is born of a virgin to Semale. His father is Zeus. Dionysus travels with companions throughout the Greek Isles performing miracles. He is the God of wine and revelry and asks others to "drink his blood and eat his flesh". He can make wine from nothing as shown in various ancient ceremonies
Joseph - son of Jacob, 2nd last of 12 sons (12 disciples). Was betrayed at the idea of his brother Judah (Jude, Judas) out of jealousy and sold into slavery. At the age of 30 he shows miraculous abilities, overcomes temptation and leads the jewish people into Egypt.
There are about 57 ressurection and 45 virgin birth myths catalogued in the ancient world. These similarities are not random chance. They all have an astrological meaning - something that was very important to the ancients. For instance, in the northern hemisphere the sun appears lower on the horizon as the winter solstace approaches. Presently that happens on the 21st or 22nd of December. The sun descends to its lowest point for three days then arises as the tilt of the earth changes. That is, the sun begins to rise on the 25th of december. In ancient lore, the sun was adored as "giver of life" the "light" as it would provide the light and warmth for people of the ancient world. Thus, its descent into darker days was viewed as the sun dying or losing the battle against the darkness. The return of the sun was considered a "rebirth" whereupon it would come to dominate the days at about late march (Spring Equinox) or easter.
Even more interestingly, the three stars that form Orion's belt which were known to some ancients as the three magi or three kings, align directly through the brightest star in the sky, Sirius A to line up with the point on the horizon where the sun rises on the 25th of december. The birth of Jesus is just an astrological event retold.
Astrology cults are not new. In a time when the entire world had only the stars to look at during night, these were fascinating things. They personified the stars and the sun because of their magnificence. They were untouchable by man and therefore, to a species that learns through touching, completely unknowable. These stories held the psyche of man, and long after their actual nature began, they became the foundation for new stories and myths.
But what about the crucifixtion? Why both Horus, Jesus, Dionysus and others suffering a crucifixtion? The answer is simple, you have probably known about it since you were very young and first saw the Australian flag. When the sun descends (from the northern hemisphere) into the winter solstice, the earth is tilted to its lowest point. In the mediteranean, the sun appears to rise through the constellation crux - or the cross - He is risen.
These stories have lived through the ages. They have changed over time, particularily before the advent of widespread writing. And now, people wish to spread these lies over the rest of us as truth. They don't realise the truth because they blind themselves with faith.
I am sorry, there is no God.
