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

Um, NO, and the #Undertaker will show why:
#Debunking about to commence...
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:

Was #Jesus a copy of the #Pagan #Mithras/#Mitra/#Mithra?
Um, #No, and here is why:
It is believed by many that the Hindu god Mitra gave rise to the Persian god Mithra, which in turn gave rise to Mithras. Thus, many Jesus Mythicists will cherry pick aspects of one and apply them to all. Indeed, they throw around the names of Mithras, Mithra and Mitra as if they
were not only the same god, but also had the same theologies.
1. There is some debate as to whether these are indeed the same gods. Most likely, Mitra’s myth gave rise to that of Mithra’s, but this is not known for absolutely sure. Likewise, the Roman Mithras has little in

A thread:
Illuminating #Bible passages on how a #pagan deserves only deceit, dissimulation and to be taken advantage of - even when he extends help.

Even if fellow-#Abrahamics are mortal enemies, a Pagan who extends shelter to one never really wins their loyalty or trust.

The scene: David flees Israelite territory. King Saul is trying to kill him, no matter how much David tries to prove his bona fides.

David + 600 soldiers (w/ families) take shelter with Philistine King Achish of Gath - pagans the Israelites hate.

Pagan king Achish grants David a town to settle in, hoping to win favour through hospitality. And perhaps driving a wedge in Israel.

Instead, behind his host's back, David and his men sack and massacre nearby pagan settlements - making sure that the king doesn't hear of it.

A Thread on "Trade Relations between Tamil Nadu and South East Asia as Gleaned from Inscriptions...!"

The Commercial and Cultural contacts between Tamil Nadu and South East Asian Countries seem to have existed even from the beginning of the Christian era!
#Sangam Literatures say that the import & export of articles between these countries had happened in great vigour through the ports located on the Coromandal coast, viz #Kollam, #Eyilpattinam, #Kaviripumpattinam, #Tondi, #Marungurpattinam (#Alagankulam), #Korkai and #Kanyakumari!
The author of the Periplus of the Erythrean Sea describes the ports of the Coromandal coast as follows. “Among the market-towns of these countries and harbour where the ships put in from Damirica and from the north, the most important are, in order as they lie, first Camara...1/2
