This is a response to an invitation to debate the existence and significance of similarities between the Jesus story found in the New Testament and older, pre-Christian myths.
I scored a 2 on the Raglan scale.... does that mean I am 7 times more likely to be real than Jesus?
As an interesting point, one of the zeitgeist movies also covers this topic and manage to find between 4 and 10 similarities between christianity and a whole bunch of other religions. What really struck me is that alot of them were born on december 25, of a virgin. and later died and came back to life 3 days later. Not sure if I trust those zeitgeist videos though....they can be entertaining though.
@matt.clerke Someone on another video of mine actually cautioned me against using Zeitgeist arguments, which I thought was odd since I've never seen Zeitgeist. It looked like a lot of conspiracy theory crackpot stuff and I never got around to watching any of it. But they cover the Jesus myth theory, apparently, and my video was about C.S. Lewis's "true myth' explanation of Jesus's mythic score on the Raglan scale.
Great video man.
