Jesus & Horus !

  1. Apr 30, 2006 #1
    Have you ever read about the life of Jesus of Nazareth ?
    Have you ever read about the life of the Egyptian God Horus ?
    o:)
    What do you think of this then :-

    Conception: Horus : By a virgin. Jesus : By a virgin.
    Mother: Horus : Meri.. Jesus : Miriam (a.k.a. Mary).
    Foster father: Horus : Seb, (Jo-Seph). Jesus : Joseph.
    Birth location: Horus : In a cave. Jesus : In a cave or stable.

    You can find even more here.

    Anyway would you say these two had the same life story or did someone take parts from one story to add to the other ?

    This looks like spam to me, but I'll move this to the Humanities forum and leave it up to Ian and Monique.

    Remove the link if you want, but i didn't post it as Spam.
    :surprised
    I thought it should go with all the other way out topics that people have posted. Oh well never mind. I'll not bother next time.

    About the time I was going to apologize, I see that you claim Jesus was a hunch-back? Are you serious?

    It is my understanding, I have no references, that in that era "virgin birth" was pretty common. Of course this "special" event was the basis for a cult of some sort. The fact that some of these cults survived is not so surprising.

    I can't remember where i read it now, but i was reading about the gospels and the fact that they had more than just the ones in the bible and found something to do with Jesus being a small ugly looking bloke. I'm sure it said he was a hunch back. I could be wrong though and things aren't always true when you read them on the internet.

    Okay, sorry about that. Your first post threw me. We see a lot of spam and we get pretty quick at spotting it. Obviously I was too hasty. :smile:


    ...though I doubt Jesus was a hunch-back. :biggrin:

    It's pretty clear that the mythical Jesus was based upon earlier gods and legends.
    I doubt Jesus was anything at all. :wink:

    You are saying that he didn't even exist?
