about falling asleep,
woke up in yet another one --
a near-seamless string of dreams within dreams.

As I become older, 
I still retain the eternal heart of a 6 year old child.
Sort of like Peter Pan....

The Similarities Between: Jesus, Mithra and Horus -- How The Early Roman Christians Plagiarized and Incorporated Pagan Beliefs
Blog Posted:12/3/2012 12:58:00 PM

 

When I was a boy, Christian theologians told me that the Western mythologies
of "Old Raven", "The Great Coyote", and "Lazy Boy", were....well, mythologies;
simple stories for simple minds to make sense of the world's mysteries.
But the Christian scholars agreed that the Western mythologies
were messages filled with peace, love, hope, redemption and a positive moral code.

As I grew older, and researched the mythologies of Horus and Mithra(Babylonian,
Hindu, Greco-Roman, Persian, Armenian), it was plainly obvious how the Romans
had incorporated the Pagan Sun-Christ mythologies into the mythology of the
biblical Jesus Christ(quite different from the historical Jesus, Yeshua ben Yosef,
a direct descendant of King David, born to Yosef and Meri, into the order of the
Essenes in Bet'lahem). This plagiarist-incorporation helped the early Roman
Christians to convert Romans who worshipped Mithra, by stating, "Your Mithra is
our Jesus, one and the same." Also, incorporating the Solstice "Birth and
Resurrection of the Sun", into the Christ story, helped in converting the Pagans of surrounding areas into Christianity.

Did the same Christian scholars who 'debunked' the Western mythologies, agree
that the mythologies of Horus and Mithra were plagiarized into the Jesus story?
Yes, and very wholeheartedly.
So why do they continue being a Christian, when they realize the truth?
Because the Christ story is one filled with the hope for world peace, love, kindness, forgiveness, redemption, and the purification of the soul, to help prepare it for an afterlife....a positive moral code.




Horus of Egypt and the similarities between Jesus Christ:


"Egypt, the primeval seat of learning, was the high seat of Sun adoration.
The Sphinx, with the face to the east, represents Harmmachus, young Horus,
or the rising Sun. The orb is Osiris, the ruling god of day. In its descent it is the
dying deity, going below to the land of Shades; but only to be resurrected as
the victorious Horus, piercing the head of the dragon of darkness."
--James Bonwick, Irish Druids & Old Irish Religions

The Egyptian sun god Horus (or one of the gods to whom he has been assilimated,
such as Osiris or Ra) predated the Christ character by thousands of years and shares
the following in common with Jesus:

-Horus was born of the virgin Isis-Meri, on December 25th in a cave/manger
with his birth being announced by a star in the East and attended by three "wise men."

-His earthly father was named "Seb" ("Joseph").

-He was of royal descent.

-At age 12, he was a child teacher in the Temple, and at 30, he was baptized, having disappeared for 18 years.

-Horus was baptized in the river Eridanus(Jordan) by "Anup the Baptizer" ("John the Baptist"); who was later decapitated.

-He had 12 followers, two of whom were his "witnesses" and were named "Anup" and
"Aan" (the two "Johns").

-He performed miracles, exorcised demons and raised El-Azarus ("El-Osiris"), from the dead.

-The Egyptian man-god walked on water.

-Horus was transfigured on the Mount.

-The Egyptian KRST Horus was killed at the age of 33, buried for three days in a tomb,
and resurrected.

-Horus, was called the "Way, the Truth, the Light," "Messiah," "God's Anointed Son,"
the "Son of Man," the "Good Shepherd," the "Lamb of God," the "Word made flesh,"
the "Word of Truth".

-The Egyptian god was "the Fisher" and was associated with the Fish ("Ichthys"),
Lamb and Lion.

-Horus was called "the KRST," or "Anointed One."

-Like Jesus, "Horus was supposed to reign one thousand years."

Furthermore, inscribed about 3,500 years ago on the walls of the Temple at Luxor, were images of the Annunciation, Immaculate Conception, Birth and Adoration of the pharaoh Amenhotep (Horus), with Thoth announcing to the queen that she will conceive; with the god Amun impregnating the queen; and with the infant being attended by "kings" bearing gifts. In addition, in the catacombs at Rome are pictures of the baby Horus being held by the virgin mother Isis--the original "Madonna and Child."




Mithra and the similarities between the biblical Jesus Christ:

 
-Mithra was born on December 25th of the virgin Anahita; he was the son of God
and of humanity, completing the "Divine Trinity".
   
-The babe was wrapped in swaddling clothes, placed in a manger and attended by shepherds, who had heralded his birth.

-He was considered a great traveling teacher and master.
   
-He had 12 disciples.
  
-He performed miracles.
 
-As the "great bull of the Sun," Mithra sacrificed himself for world peace,
at the age of 33.
 
-Mithra ascended to heaven.

-Mithra was viewed as the Good Shepherd, the "Way, the Truth and the Light," the Redeemer, the Savior, the Messiah.
 
-He was identified with both the Lion and the Lamb.
   
-His sacred day was Sunday, "the Lord's Day," hundreds of years before the appearance
of the Christ story.

-His religion had a eucharist or "Lord's Supper."
 
-Mithraism emphasized baptism.

-Mithra was believed to come back to save believers from the "Dragon".

In an early image, Mithra is depicted as a sun disc in a chariot drawn by white horses, another solar motif that made it into the Jesus myth, in which Christ is to return on a white horse. (Rev 6:2; 19:11)
_________



For me, it isn't about who is right or wrong, but an acceptance of the truth.
The Jesus Christ mythology(the historical accounts are quite different, but still
powerful)is a very positive one. I enjoy the Jesus story; it is filled with positive
lessons that lean on a strong moral code. If people followed this moral code
to its fullest, the world can only become a better place.



"The Sun has attracted the attention of mankind for adoration all over the world from the very beginning of human history. It has attained the position of pre-eminence among the deities of nature in ancient times. The prominence and glory of the solar orb, its beauty and splendour, its importance in the creation and maintenance of life, its regularity in diffusing light and enlightening the whole earth, its primal role in the cosmic evolution and consequent mystery surrounding it, had secured for the Sun a history of interest and importance equalled by none to which every age and every race has contributed its pages." --V.C. Srivastava

"The Christian religion and Masonry have one and the same common origin: Both are derived from the worship of the Sun. The difference between their origin is, that the Christian religion is a parody on the worship of the Sun, in which they put a man whom they call Christ, in the place of the Sun, and pay him the same adoration which was originally paid to the Sun." --Thomas Paine, Age of Reason

"Thus, the Jesus character is not unique or original. These redeemer tales are similar not because they reflect the actual exploits of a variety of men who did and said the identical things, but because they are representations of the same extremely ancient body of knowledge that revolved around the celestial bodies and natural forces." -- Sir. James G. Frazer

    I am grateful the missionaries have stopped soupmailing me in attempts to convert me towards a dollar store rendition of a plastic Jesus glued onto a plastic cross made by children in China, using poisonous materials(that was several years of missionary work). If I put up a blog about the history of cotton candy, most people wouldn't be offended. But even then, someone could become offended. If I put up a blog about the history of coffee, the blog might be posted on the birthday of a Mormon who could become offended. Or if I post a blog about nutrition and healthy eating, and so happen to post during a fasting holiday, someone could possibly become offended because they didn't want to read about food while they were hungry. Such is the reality within a homogenized arena of political correctness. The irony is, the same people who advocate for the freedom of expression, poetic license, thinking outside of the box, are some of the same people who attempt to stifle that very process, with, "You are wrong, you CAN'T/SHOULDN'T write such things! I will show you exactly what is right and proper! Do you see! Do you see!? My point of view is right, and yours is wrong!"(But done so in a seemingly polite manner -- as long as an outward appearance of kindness is maintained, "it's all good"). And so the cycle continues plodding onwards....

    Yes, it's very suspicious ...or at least questionable. There are a series of facts alleged to have been historical, but which are demonstrably mythical...not as exaggerations or perversions of historic truth, but belonging to the preexistent stories...preexisting myths...preexisting ideas... ; )

    Dan, since you usually delete your comments, I will reply up here using my own comment. I am not even entirely sure wot you are going on about. I typed: "I enjoy the Jesus story; it is filled with positive lessons that lean on a strong moral code. If people followed this moral code to its fullest, the world can only become a better place." Am I fully following the teachings? No. Are you? No. Wot religion are you referring to that I follow? And where is the judgement, exactly? I find you to be insecure within your belief system -- that is not judgement, but an observation of mine. You become very defensive, very quickly. We all have weaknesses. Would you like a list of mine? So you are telling me that you could look me in the eyes, and without a single shred of doubt(none wotsoever), tell me that you are 100% non-judgemental of another religion other than your own?

    Dan, please don't go there....please don't do the apology thing. Please?(lol - I am not mature enough yet to always forgive people....I have a long ways to go yet :P) Is this really out of hand? Sure, maybe you were ganged-up on in one of the comments....it will only make you stronger in the end haha! Doesn't disagreeing with me make your blood boil at times? Make you want to reach through the screen and strangle me? Make you feel alive? And by disagreeing with me, can't this possibly reaffirm your own faith even more, as opposed to the typical robotic-response back-patting of the widely beaten path?

    You don't believe the Jesus depicted in the bible is a mythology based on predating mythologies. This is your right, and it is your right to share your beliefs with others. I believe that the biblical Jesus isn't the same as the historical Jesus, and how the biblical accounts are plagiarized from pre-existing mythologies. It is my right to believe this, and it is my right to share my beliefs with others.

    BULL! If this site is only for poetry, then why have there been so many religious blogs over the years. I am not allowed to express my thoughts on the matter? Or is it, if my beliefs/thoughts don't jive with the majority, then I am 'ripping' the majority?

    I did NOT claim to follow a surer religion....and definitely not because of research. You are putting words into my mouth! I did mention to do some more 'spiritual homework' instead of always coming up with conditioned responses, and appearing so insecure about your faith(which you don't need to be!)that you have to come across so defensively if I express myself in a way that might not be conducive to your own beliefs. How am I ripping on Jesus in this blog? I think the moral codes of the Jesus mythology are an EXCELLENT tool to use for human betterment. And creating chaos? How am I creating chaos with this blog?

    That is not what I was trying to say..It was what you said in a comment about how I should go back and do some more research before I post stuff..Then you said you follow a sure'er religion basicly because of your research.And then I guess it's the way you posted "Jesus Mythology"...And your blogs seem like you are always ripping on Jesus? Why?And no,I maybe alittle judgemental of another religion.But I don't like you, like to cause chaos through religion on this site?

    *Baa-baa* There, I offered a green bleat to match your red bleat. I still have hope in the metaphor of a chrysalis to use to transcend our present pupa-state with. I don't think secularism is the key either, which makes it ironic that people can be so quick to judge me as an "unbeliever". A non-believer of wot exactly?

    I remember this well-written piece from last year. Did you originally use this as a school essay or is it just an interest? Well, writing fiction is so much easier than writing a comment. I can clarify tone in fiction, emphasize intent during dialogue with beats and action. I want to do this here, in this comment, because what I'm about to say may sound sacrastic or strange when I am, in fact, being genuine. I wanted to thank you for posting this blog NOW in early December. I appreciate you sharing these views before Christmas week, not during. Christmas is very special to me, for a thousand reasons. I respect your learning journey. Keep searching! Peace & Hugs, Cyndi ... and a smile...

    The piece from last year had a similar 'parallel-chart' but was worded differently....still very similar, yes! I don't see how you should let a blog like this detract from Christmas being special to you, whether I put it up in June, or on December 21st. I didn't use this Word Doc. for school....it isn't expanded enough to have been a decent school paper. This version is more of a '101 For Dummies'.

    Yes Chris, I realize all of this, but simply put all religions insist their own dogma is TRUTH [of course that is strictly their own subjective opinion] and everyone elses dogma is myth ie: stories made up of metaphors to instruct lesser minds, no belief system which enforces a dogma is teaching truth, they are instructing the membership in their own personal subjective opinions and weaving 'fact' in and around the opinion providing a cloak of truth.
