Egyptian and Mithraic influence on Christianity

Christ Myth

We mythicists and comparative religion/mythology scholars and students often hear apologies attempting to refute comparisons between the Egyptian religion, Mithraism and Christianity. These rebuttals include that Egypt had nothing to do with the creation of Christianity and that Mithra’s birth was not celebrated on December 25th or the winter solstice, as many have claimed.

Cracked.com’s shockingly crappy article about ‘Religulous’ and ‘Zeitgeist’

Christ in Egypt: The Horus-Jesus Connection

Cracked.com had an article disparaging documentaries “shockingly full of crap” that included the first “Zeitgeist” film. Unfortunately, the article itself – which had almost a million views in one day – is shockingly full of crap, as the author has a very superficial knowledge of the subject of comparative religion and mythology. Note that she […]

Muslim clerics call for destruction of Egypt’s Great Pyramid and other antiquities

UPDATE (11/11/12): The Arab newspaper al-Arabiya has reported on the call of another jihadi cleric for the destruction of the pyramids, Sphinx and other ancient artifacts.

Archaeologist: Egyptian religion forms the roots of Jewish, Christian, Islamic religious tree

Ibrahim also cites recent cases of this behavior, justified by Islamic doctrines, as put forth by such preachers as al-Huwaini. In a speech […]

Jerusalem next!

I know I’ll get in trouble for this one, but I can’t help it. Lessee: Barack Obama makes a speech in Cairo full of erroneous claims about Islam’s great contributions to the world, appoints Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood members to his cabinet and supports the “popular uprising” of Egypt. Now the “free” Egyptian people are calling […]

HORUS IS A SUN GOD!!!

I wrote that title in all caps, because no matter how many times that fact is repeated, no matter how much evidence is proffered, the mistake, inaccuracy or downright lie is constantly being put forth that Horus was NOT a sun god.
