Is #Jesus one of the #DyingAndRising #gods, and thus pure #Myth?
Um, #NO, and #gorillas will show you why…
Many Jesus Mythicists have tried to state that Jesus was one of several ancient deities in the “Dying and Rising” gods category. This idea became more prominent among both academics and laymen when Sr James G. Fraser, a cultural anthropologist, wrote the book “The Golden Bough”
in 1890. In it, he claimed that Jesus was among several other dying and rising gods, which he claimed were associated with the agricultural cycle. This “dying and Rising God” category finds its way in our mythology books, and Jesus Mythicists use the category in their arguments.

Do (Supposed) #parallels between the #Gospels and #Pagan #myth prove that #Jesus was based on pagan #gods?
Um, #NO, and both the #Titanic and #EdgarAllanPoe will show you why:
Jesus Mythicists try to find any parallel between Christ and pagan gods in order to prove that Jesus was based on pagan myth, thus never existed. This is an idea that has been around for 300 years, yet it has never become the academic consensus. Indeed, Jesus Christ is recognized
as a historical figure by historical consensus.
Jesus Mythcists’ appeal to Parallelomania is faulty on logical grounds. For one, most of these so-called parallels are not really parallels at all (as Numerous people, including myself, have noted elsewhere). Two, just because a

OK, Twitter. Pour the tea. It’s time to talk about #ToxicMasculinity and the #myth of the #AlphaMale . You ready? I got my tea right here. It’s green tea spiked with whiskey, honey, garlic, mint, and wasabi because it’s going to be that kind of thread. Here we go.
First off, let’s deal with this #AlphaMale nonsense. Take a quick look in the mirror. Are you a wolf, a chimpanzee, a gorilla, or a bonobo? Are you a chicken? Are you a large herd animal, like a horse or a bighorn sheep? No? OK, then you’re probably not an alpha anything.
Alpha males, which distinguish themselves based on physically dominating behaviors DO exist in gorilla and chimpanzee societies. But guess what doesn’t exist in those societies? Higher-order organizational structures such as governments, militaries, or police forces...
