Beddru Flemming has already admitted his mistake on this one. It may be a corruption or variation of the name "Buddha" therefore perhaps Chinese or Indian in origin but that is just speculation.
April 7, This was not the basis for Jesus Christ. The movie spent over 30 minutes attacking the Bible and the Christian faith and specifically the idea that the story of Jesus Christ in the Gospels is nothing more than a copy of the story of the Egyptian God Horus, Mithras and other pagan gods.
This article will show that not only are these claims incorrect and lack any substantive evidence, but that they are part of a greater spiritual agenda that Dan Brown, the Zeitgeist film and others have in common. Was Jesus a Copy of Horus?
The Egyptian God Horus. The Zeitgeist film makes a number of wild statements about Horus to attempt to prove that Jesus is a copy. The most famous by far, was that Horus was born from his mother Isis, who was not a virgin, but rather a widow of the slain Osiris.
Through sorcery, Isis, assembled the body of Osiris and was impregnated with his phallus. Clearly this was a sexual union and not a virgin birth. It never tells us the number of wise men.
They came to his family home when he was a toddler. Even if this were the case, they are just stars and not actual people who followed Horus, preached about him or recorded his life.
This is another empty and false claim. Dead for three days. Additionally, crucifixion was a method of execution invented by the Roman Empire thousands of years after the time of the Horus myth.
So the Zeitgeist creators know most people will not research their attacks and just take it as factual just as Dan Brown did with the numerous inaccuracies of the DaVinci Code.
Was Jesus a Copy of Mithras? Ancient art depicting Mithras being born out of a rock. Zeitgeist continues as do the skeptics with the idea that Christianity itself is a copy of the cult of Mithras, which was popularized in Rome in the 1st to 4th Century AD note that it sprung up in Rome after the death of Christ and centuries after the Old Testament prophecies of the Coming Messiah.
But according to historians, Mithras was born from a rock, not from a virgin or from a person at all. Such a blatant inconsistency should show a serious flaw in Mithraism research, but the Zeitgeist team again overlooks this.
Furthermore, this relief dates to 4th century A. Mithras and his "12 disciples. The earliest writings are from outsiders recording their observations. So most of the wild assertions of Zeitgeist are just being based on this piece of art.
Franz Cumontconsidered the first great researcher of Mithras claimed that the disciples in the relief were actually people dressed up as Zodiac signs, showing how ludicrous the effort to link Mithras to Jesus can get.Is Jesus the Only Savior?
