In a sense, Jesus is real. He is the Sun.

 

Oh, and if you understood how strong this analogy is, congrats to you, you are smarter than most Americans. If you are worried about the details, calm down, the stars are there, and all the small details of the myths fit together (Krishna did have 8 brothers, but he was concieved without sexual union, etc). This really is the essence of Christianity.

 

And don't forget to familiarize yourself with the Zeitgeist Movement, and Peter Joseph's second film, the Zeitgeist: Addendum, they see humanity's problems in the appropriate context.

Thanks for summarizing this in a simple easy-to-understand way.

Actually, this is not new information. The similarities between Horus (et al) and Yeshua have been well known for decades. The fact that the entire New Testament is a post-construction to fit both the "Form 1A of deities" (Horus), and all the prophecies of the Old Testament, should be taught in schools!

Jesus is nothing but an amalgamation of various other "sun" gods of ancient history.  In "Bible Myths and Their Parallels in Other Religions" by TW Doane, he posits that The Essenes monks, who spent a great deal of time in the Library of Alexandria, where information on all the ancient religions were stored, created an "angel messiah" based on Buddha and others, which then evolved into "Jesus" as we know him today.  The text was used at Harvard Seminary, and can be downloaded for free at books.google.com

Really interesting video! Thanks for all that amazing info!

 

There are records however, of Yeshua of Nazareth having a following. The mythology is bullshit, but I am still willing to grant his historical existence based on testimonials of his followers preserved in Roman law. Grant you, it's nothing more than, "these people follow someone named Jesus!" but all the same, I feel it makes our case stronger if a real person was mythologized.

The probability of a non historical Jesus, The most potent argument that jesus was one man instead of an amalgamation of myths attributed to one fictional character is the writings of Josephis which have even been declared to be most likely fraudulent by both biblical historians (including staunch apologists) and freethinkers alike.
