the fairy story. Many currents fed the Jesus myth, like
streams and tributaries joining to form a major river. As Christianity
cut its way through the centuries it became a very murky and
dangerous torrent, sweeping away civilizations and all who
stood in its way.

the cooking pot of religious fusion and the land of Egypt provided many of the themes
and much of the detail for what later emerged as "Christianity".

you really think it all began with a sanctimonious
Jewish wonder-worker, strolling about 1st century Palestine?
Prepare to be enlightened. There were many Jesuses but
the fable was a cultural construct (and following
a star would lead you in circles!)
A pregnant virgin, a new star in the sky, birth announcements that somehow reach all the way to wise men from the east, a flight to Egypt and a massacre of babies? If it all sounds too outrageous to be true that's because it is.
The genealogies of Jesus are pious fiction. Matthew was the first to introduce ancestry into the Jesus story and the writer had a Jewish, not a universal, audience in mind. Matthew tied his Jesus to the Hebrew patriarchs and began his yarn with the mythical Abraham.
Luke pushed his alternative Jesus genealogy all the way back to the first man Adam, in keeping with his idea of a saviour for all mankind.

The original Mary was not a virgin. That idea

Diana, Artemis, Isis – the pagan world knew all
about virgins getting pregnant by randy gods. In the gospels, the shadowy figure of

story telling fused all the paraphernalia of pagan myths into the Christian one and fashioned a handmaiden for the Church of

industry of deceit to keep the show on the
road. The supposed
'evidence' of Jesus's existence fills many volumes. The desire for quick-fix salvation and something easy
on the brain cells allows the $ multi-billion
industry of religion to exploit a general ignorance of science and
history. Suspect logic, semantic trickery, and a showman's pizzazz deceives the unsophisticated and packs in the fans of Jesus.

that nonsense about ancient evidence. "Jesus

figure like Julius Caesar has a mass
of mutually supporting evidence.
Christianity, like all religious movements, was born from myth-making and many currents fed the myth, including astrological speculation, pagan salvation cults, Hellenistic hero worship, and the imperial cult itself, manufactured at precisely the "time of Jesus", with its own sacrificed saviour (Divus Iulius), its own gospel of a son of god (Res Gestae Divi Augusti), its own priests and temples, established in the very same urban centres which later witnessed the emergence of early Christianity.
The truth is that Christianity grew from neither a god nor a man but out of what had gone before; a human Jesus was no more necessary than was a human Horus, Dionysos, Mithras, or Attis. Can we explain the emergence of Christianity without its humanoid superstar? Of course we can.
