Here is more proof that the entire fundament of Christianity is a fraud.
Christianity cannot stand up as a philosophical belief unless the story of Christ’s life – birth, ministry, death, resurrection, role as savior – also stands up factually.
There is little dispute that he lived, preached in Jerusalem , threw a fit in the Temple , and was executed for it. But all of the other stuff was fiction: it was plagiarized from the Egypt myth-makers.
The Egyptian god Horus existed centuries before Christ. Horus was the only begotten son of God, born of the virgin Isis-Meri and Seb, of royal descent; his birth was announced by an angel, heralded by a star, witnessed by shepherds and celebrated thereafter in December. Herut tried to murder him but God told his mother to flee. His life story is a blank from age 12 to 30, whereupon he is baptized in a river by a prophet who was beheaded, and resists temptation in the desert. He probably had 12 disciples, delivered a sermon on a hill, cared for the hungry, healed the blind and sick, walked on water, and raised al-Asar from the dead. He was probably crucified with two thieves, descended into hell, and his resurrection, after three days, was announced by women. He was regarded as a god and savior of humanity, the shepherd and the fisher of men.
So not only is the central myth of the New Testament a fiction, it is flagrantly plagiarized fiction. They didn’t even concoct their own myths, they stole someone else’s.
And unless the mission and divinity of Christ are based in fact, Christian belief falls apart.
