The Holy Bible - A serious case of plagiarism Is the story about Jesus in the bible just a serious case of plagiarism. Yes is the answer if you acknowledge the fact that the story of Horus came first; and that it did.

"Stories from the life of Horus had been circulating for centuries before Jesus birth (circa 4 to 7 BCE). If any copying occurred by the writers of the Egyptian or Christian religions, it was the followers of Jesus who incorporated into his biography the myths and legends of Horus, not vice-versa."

It's quite shocking read actually. I don't believe in the Bible or the character they call Jesus but if I did and studied the story of Horus I'd right now feel pretty damn pranked.

I have! It's nuts! Really scary actually. The film isn't very subtle and it talks about all wrongs of the world and not just the christian fools. I wish some non-converted would dare to see that film too.

Can anyone show or prove the story of Horus before the New Testament. In other words, where is the "written text" or any other proof that the story of Horus existed prior to the birth of Jesus? Anyone?

There is quite a difference between the story of Horus and Jesus life.. Horus was born of a goddess where Jesus was born of a virgin (human).. There are too many differences to even say that New Testament was plagiarised of his story.. Also the only info we truly have are hieroglyphics which have been proven many times over to be interpreted wrong for many do not know what all the symbols to be correct.. As a study of anthropology I understand the area where there mistakes can be made.. So to say that their is any correlation between the two.. It is quite the fallacy to follow this train of thought.. :)

Interesting. Are there any other major differences?

I can see how hieroglyphics can be misinterpreted since they're so different from modern languages. Also, the people who wrote the bible probably weren't inspired by the hieroglyphes; they were probably inspired by the written down interpretation of Horus which is like chinese whispers a bit.

Can you enlighten me as to what this has to do with anthropology?
