Does this sound familiar?

Horus:

Birth heralded by: The star Sirius, the morning star.

Ancient Egyptians paraded a manger and child representing Horus through the streets at the time of the winter solstice (about DEC-21).

Birth witnesses: Shepherds.

Later witnesses to birth: Three solar deities.

Death threat during infancy: Herut tried to have Horus murdered.

Temptation: Taken from the desert of Amenta up a high mountain by his arch-rival Set, who was a precursor for the Hebrew Satan.

Result of temptation: Horus resists temptation.

Activities: Walked on water, cast out demons, healed the sick, restored sight to the blind. He "stilled the sea by his power."

Raising of the dead: Horus raised Osirus, his dead father, from the grave.

Method of death By crucifixion or by the sting of a scorpion; sources differ.

Burial In a tomb.

Fate after death: Desce

  • Humanity just loves it's savoir myths. Many of our favorite modern myths have savior elements as well. Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, and The Chronicles of Narnia all come to mind. To me personally, the fact that we tell the same stories over and over, regardless of our culture, is evidence of the divine, not against it. I don't understand why some people are so threatened by this.

  • That's great... If you don't believe in Jesus or God or the Bible, that's your choice. However, you're not going to change the beliefs of those of us who have personally experienced Christ and His power, just by posting some bogus info you dug up on the Internet.

  • Not bogus Anon- FACT. Fact anyone who opens a book about Ancient Egyptian religion and culture can see for themselves. Shame you act all defensive when faced with the truth...

    I don't care if you change your beliefs or not but maybe you should educate yourself on WHERE your religion come from.

  • There is a difference between Mythological stories and the truth. The Bible is the truth.
