Gore has made a challenge with the magnitude of JFK’s challenge to get to the moon in 10 years. This time, it’s not about a space race. It’s about a race for the survival of our species and the safety of our nation. Are we up to the task? Can we Americans still rise to a challenge as we did in the 60s? As we did when we ramped up for World War II? Or, have we become a bunch of complacent morans that deserve the painful times ahead if we fail the challenge?
This thread is now replaced by a new thread A More Rigorous Take on the Jesus Myth. Please use this thread for all new discussion on this topic.
ALERT ALERT ALERT!!! THIS POST IS FALSE!!! I apologize for spreading incorrect information. I believed it to be true when I posted it. Zarove below has proven me incorrect. I apologize for being taken in by an article that actually came up from google scholar. Looking at the footnotes of my “peer reviewed” article should have clued me in. I did not read that carefully. I will not further spread this myth.
Understand that I still do not believe either the Horus myth or the Jesus myth. However, I now also know that it is a myth that the two myths are the same.
Thank you Zarove for setting me straight.
Here for posterity is my original post:
In the spirit of the Bush-McCain Challenge, which shows that most people cannot tell the difference between Bush and McCain, I ask weather you can tell the difference between Horus and Jesus. So, guess which one was:
- Born of a virgin?
- Baptized at age 30?
- Had 12 disciples?
- Was crucified?
- Was resurrected 3 days later
- Was associated with the astrological sign Pisces, the fish?
- Was known as The Lamb of God?
