Do (supposed) parallels between #Christ and some #pagan #gods prove that #Jesus was based on pagan gods?
Um, NO, and the #Undertaker will show why:

Jesus Mythicists will try to find whatever parallel they can with Christ in order to make him a mythological figure, in order to cast doubt on his existence, his historicity.
As many have noted, these parallels are faulty at best, absurd at the worst. Indeed, many of the
supposed parallels are clever lies, intended to fool a public that is poorly educated on history and generally not willing to check their sources.
But let’s look at their logic, shall we? Let’s look at their argument, expressed as letters:
B has many similarities to A

Was #Jesus based on #Buddha?
Um, #NO, and here is why:
#Debunking #Ahead
Siddhartha Gautama, aka Buddha, was a historical figure. However, the exact time period in which he lived is up for grabs (he may have been born in the 7th, 6th or 5th century BC, we don’t know for sure, though the scholarly consensus places it in the latter). One reason why this
the case is because Buddha’s teachings and biographies were written down centuries after he died. Indeed, Buddha’s teaching were passed on orally until the first century AD, when it was written down, becoming the Pali Canon (aka Tripitaka). Now Buddha died between 410-370 BC, so

There are several different accounts of Horus’ death, which involved anything from being stung by a scorpion, bitten by a snake, cut into pieces, etc. Yet none of these state that he was crucified, which makes sense, given that crucifixion wasn't an Egyptian form of execution.
It was, however, a form of execution that was well used by the Persians, Carthaginians, Seleucids and Romans. It was done from the 6th century BC to the 4rth century AD. .If one expected Horus to be executed in any way in the myths, it would have been with a form of execution

If anyone tells you that the god #Attis was born of a virgin, crucified and resurrected, respond to them in the following way:
#Debunking #About #To #Happen
Though there was technically no "sex" involved in his conception, as well shall see, this does not mean he was virgin born.
You see, in one version, Zeus masturbates, his semen hits the land and produces an apple tree. one of its fruits falls on the lap of Nana, the daughter of
a river god. Thus, she becomes pregnant. In another, a hermaphrodite monster named Agdistis (Likewise born of Zeus masturbating) was made drunk by the gods (adding wine to the pool where the monster bathed in). They tied Agdistis' genitals to a tree after the monster went to

Guten ... äh ... Mittag, Twitter. Ich habe euch nicht vergessen, bin aber gerade mitten in einer wichtigen Lektüre. Den Artikel stelle ich euch nachher vor. Es geht um die Schwierigkeit, Mythen und Falschinformationen richtigzustellen. Das Phänomen begegnet mit sowohl bei der
... @iqwig-Arbeit als auch in Zusammenhang mit der #Klimakrise. So gibt es bei Twitter inzwischen Fake-Accounts, die unter der Fridays-for-Future-Flagge segeln, aber krudes rechtes Zeug verbreiten. Die Richtigstellungen erreichen längst nicht alle, die das Zeug liken und
@iqwig ... retweeten. #Debunking ist äußerst mühsam, bindet Kräfte, ist oft ineffizient - und kann sogar zur Weiterverbreitung von gefährlichem Unsinn beitragen. Dazu nachher mehr.
