Copycat Religion… (2 of 10)

Bob & Trent,

I thoroughly enjoyed the dinner conversation.

Having (I hope) defended my recollection of various quotations in the prior e-mail it now occurs to me I neglected to include the promised list of Gods which were once worshiped by more people than are currently alive. Gods you likely would have believed in had you been alive then, as you would likely have been bred to believe in the Hindu pantheon had you been born in New Delhi vs. New York.

Illustrating the foundation myths of all religions are pale plagiarisms of prior plagiarisms all of the Gods listed below were a) born of virgins, b) born (star in the East followed by three Kings) on December 25th, c) or, resurrected on December 25th having been ‘dead’ for the prior three days.

I can expatiate on the celestial cycle which, in the northern hemisphere, gives rise to the astrological allegory dictating the dates common to all the Gods listed, but I’ll let you figure out the virgin connection for yourselves.

The Famous:

  • Horus – Egypt 3,500 BC
  • Attis – Greece 1,200 BC
  • Krishna – India 900 BC
  • Dionysus – Greece 500 BC
  • Mithra – Persia 1,2oo BC

And the Not so Famous:

  • Chrishna – Hindostan
  • Budha Sakia – India
  • Zulis / Zhule / Osiris / Orus – Egypt
  • Odin – Scandinavia
  • Zoroaster – Persia
  • Baal / Taut – Phoenecia
  • Ball – Afghanistan
  • Jao – Nepal
  • Wittoban – Bilingones
  • Thammuz – Syria
  • Atys – Phrygia
  • Xamolxis – Thrace
  • Adad – Assyria
  • Deva Tat – Siam
  • Alcides – Thebes
  • Mikkad – Sintoos
  • Beddru – Japan
  • Hesus / Ero / Bremrilleh – Druids
  • Thor – Gaul
  • Camdus – Greece
  • Hil / Fetta – Mandaites
  • Gentaut / Quexalcote – Mexico
  • Mon – Sibyls
  • Ischy – Fermosa
  • Fohi / Tien – China
  • Ixion / Quirinus – Rome
  • Prometheus – Caucasus
  • And my personal favorite; born of the virgin Io (who started that little tit for tat {Io > Europa > Helen} we like to call the Trojan War)
    the big bad boy; Adonis

There are many others but I’m turning in.

Your Brother in Christ (or any of his prototypes)
