Was #Mary, the #mother of #Jesus, based on the #Egyptian #Goddess #Isis?
Um, #NO, and here is why #Round #Two
When I wrote my previous article on the faulty comparisons between Mary, the Mother of Jesus, and the Egyptian Goddess Isis, I didn’t realize that there was one aspect of the so-called Virgin birth comparisons that could be brought to bear by Jesus Mythicists, and I knew I had to
tackle it (one day both of these articles on Isis and Mary will be combined).
Major Debunking ahead.

Is #Jesus a #mythical figure, based on the #Sumerian #goddess #Inanna?
Um, #NO, and here is why:
Inanna was the Sumerian goddess of war, fertility and love. Queen of both Heaven and Earth, Inanna was known to the Babylonians as Ishtar (though the stories about Ishtar have differences from that of the Sumerian Inanna, reflecting different theologies). Inanna was considered
the protector of prostitutes, and she was at times depicted at the keeper of the tablets of the Me, or cosmic laws. She fell in love with a minor god named Dumuzi (known to the Babylonians as Tammuz), only to lose him to the underworld. In some accounts this was for half of the

கொற்றவை - தமிழ் போர்க் கடவுள்.
#RT #war #kotravai #goddess

கொற்றவை என்பவள் பாலை நிலத்துக்குரிய தெய்வமாக தமிழ் இலக்கியம் குறிப்பிடுகிறது.
மறவர் மற்றும் எயினர் (தற்போது எயினர் என அறியப்படும் சாதி இல்லை. ஆயினும் மறவர்கள் உள்ளனர்) கொற்றவையை வணங்கியதாகச் சங்ககாலத்துக்குப் பிற்பட்ட இலக்கியங்கள் காட்டுகின்றன. மறவர் பாலை நிலத்துக்குரிய பூர்வகுடி மக்களாக அறியப்பட்டாலும், அவர்கள் ஐவகை நிலங்களிலும் பரவி வாழ்ந்தனர்.
கொற்றவை என்பவள் குறிஞ்சி நிலத்துக்குரிய தெய்வமாகப் சில பழந் தமிழ் நூல்களிலே குறிப்பிடப்பட்டாலும், பிற்காலத்தில் கொற்றவை பாலை நிலத்துக்கு உரிய தெய்வமாகவே பெரும்பாலும் விவரிக்கப்படுகிறாள்.
