From the chapter "The Legend of Osiris" from the book "The Egyptian Book of the Dead", translated by E.A. Wallis Budge: "Furthermore, we find...the doctrine of eternal life and of the resurrection of a glorified and transformed body, based upon the ancient story of the resurrection of Osiris after a cruel death and horrible mutilation" "...at the moment of his birth a voice was heard to proclaim that the lord of creation was born." "Osiris was the god through whose sufferings and death the Egyptian hoped that his body might rise again in some transformed or glorified shape, and to him who had conquered death and had become king of the other world the Egyptian appealed in prayer for eternal life through his victory and power."

Is this before Isis reconstructed his penis so she could bear is children? Oh that's right if It was eaten by a fish and so she recreated one. No this doesn't sound anything like Jesus birth if that's what your asking, and no Isis is not Mary.

I think the OP was aiming more along th elines of how easy it is for other myths to be discounted and claimed to be false, until it pertains to a religion so many actually beleive in and then it is expected to be held up as 100% truth, even when the stories are similar
Yes, I agree with this, that's why I don't try to convince anyone that my beliefs are the best or the only way. People have to learn, read and discover for themselves what they believe.
