Ischy of the island of Formosa
Divine Teacher of Plato
Holy One of Xaca

The question is: Why these attributes? Why 12 disciples or followers?
Why dead for 3 days and resurrection? Why December 25th? Why a virgin mother?

Let's take a look:

Jesus Christ

Bio:

Born of the Virgin Mary
Born December 25th of Bethlehem
Birth announced by a star in the East
3 Kings followed to Adorn him
WAS A CHILD TEACHER AT 12
At 30 he was baptized by John the Baptist, Beginning his ministry
Had 12 disciples
Traveled to perform miracles: healing sick, walking on water, water into wine, raising the dead
Known as:
King of Kings
Son of God
Light of the World
Alpha and Omega
Lamb of God
Betrayed by Disciple Judist for 30 pieces of silver
Crucified
Resurrected after 3 days in a tomb
Ascended to Heaven

Star of the East = Sirius, the brightest star in the night sky
On the 24th, it alines with the three brightest stars in Orians belt
These three bright stars today are called what they were in ancient times:
The Three Kings
The Three Kings and the brightest star all point to the place of sunrise on
December 25th
This is why the 3 Kings follow the Star of the East, in order to locate the sunrise
And the birth of the sun

The virgin Mary is the constellation Virgo,
Also known as Virgo the Virgin, Virgo in latin meaning virgin
Also means the House of Bread
The Symbol is a virgin holding a shief of wheat
This representation is for August and September, the months of Harvest
In turn, Bethlehem literally means: House of Bread
Bethlehem is directly linked with Virgo

Days get Shorter during the winter solstice, showing the death of the sun
Sun continues to move southward until the 22nd, where it seems to stop
The 22nd, 23rd, and 24th it resides in the viscinity of the souther cross (Crux) constellation
Moves North one Degree on the 25th Continues North

THUS SAYING: The sun was dying, was dead for THREE days, and then was resurrected
This is why Jesus and numerous other idols share the three day death/resurrection attribute
It is the suns transition period before it shifts back North for the Spring
(Longer days, warmer days)

However, they do not celebrate the resurrection of the sun until the Spring Equinox,
(Easter)
This is because on the Spring Equinox the sun overpowers the darkness
More of the world is light then dark, and every day forward
Becomes longer then the night
And the conditions of spring emerge (flowers and budding)

12 Disciples signifies the 12 constellations, which Jesus,
Being the Sun
Travels about with
The number 12 is repeated throughout the bible
[12 Tribes of Israel
12 Sons of Jacob
12 Judges of Israel
12 Great Patriarchs
12 O.T. Prophets
12 Kings of Israel
12 Princes of Israel]

Jesus and all of the idols listed above can be directly linked to the sun and the constellations

Oh and P.S. The Crown of Thorns... They were just sun rays

Many religions have simalar stories and explanations. Another example would be the sililarity between Pandora and Eve. Often, religious people get very defensive of their faith when the meet people of other beleifs, but what they don't realize is that their gospels have a lot more in common then they think.

Umm...Horus's mother was Isis, not Ices and she was never said to be a virgin.  Horus was not crucified, although his father was dismembered.  He never died and therefore was never resurrected.

I'm not really sure why this is on TeenInk. It seems to be a long list of random trivia as opposed to a piece of writing. One star.

Thanks for posting this! :] A good reminder. I don't hold in my hand all these ancient sources to check, so I can't speak for the accuracy. But it's very compelling!

no its not....at all. virtually no scholar or historian in any of the respective fields takes any of this seriously. this is the stuff of conspiracy theories, and is akin to holocaust denial and saying shakespeare didn't write his plays =P

read the scholarship please. not conspiracy theorists.

Simple mistake that a lot of people I know, including myself, have made. But this is how I started out, then I started reading Dawkins, Hitchens, and others who's arguments are as compelling as Zeitgeist's.

Funny how people are only "serious scholars" if they agree with the secular agenda.

Hm... very interesting. Not saying I agree with all of it, but it was an interesting read. Its amazing how all these religions have so many similarities.

Jesus wasn't born on the 25th of December!

I suspect if the Zeitgeist movie couldn't get that simple fact right why should I trust the other fanciful claims made?

The accepted story is that he was born on Dec. 25th (yes, the "real" date is supposed to be somewhere in the spring). The December 25th thing came from a pagan religion. They also had a Jesus type figure, and December 25th is part of the Winter Solstice, which has celebrations. Story is the church wanted to entice more people to join because the pagan religions were so popular (festivals at midnight and what not). I think there's more to it, so anyone is free to add here.
