They are both based on the same concept, the 12 constellations (apostles) the winter solstice (the sun reaches its lowest point, stays three days, then rises) both had a virgin mother, both crucified (one on a cross, one on a tree) both performed miracles, etc. But there are other religions all over the world that shared similarities based around the winter solstice, it is the most easily recognized annual event in the night sky.
Yes! Not only as Horus, but Jesus is also the copy of all the other sun-gods like Apollo, Baldur, Krishna, Hercules, Samson, Osiris, Bacchus, Mithras, Buddha, Quetzalcoatl, Fo-hi, Prometheus, Zoroaster, Perseus, Ishtar, Cadom, Lao-tse, Ramses etc.
All these gods had gods for fathers and all their mothers were virgins.
Tyrants sought to kill all of these gods when they were born.
Nearly all were visited and worshipped by "wise men."
All were born on the 25th December.
All of them fasted for forty days.
All wrought stupid miracles.
All met with violent death.
All rose from the dead.
All went to heaven.
E. Carpenter rightly said, "One has only, instead of the word Jesus, to read Horus, Dionysus or Krishna or Hercules or Osiris, instead of 'Mary' to put Semele or Devaki or Alcmene or Neith, and for Pilate to use the name of any terrestrial tyrant, and lo! The creed fits into the rites and worship of a pagan God."
The history of these gods is the exact history of Christ. This is not a coincidence – a design. Christ is just a new name for an old biography -- a survival -- the last of the sun-gods. Christ was more of a myth, than a man -- less a life, more a legend.
Horus, i believe, was a pagan Egyptian god. And fake and defunct now as well. Very few actual believers and followers today, as is the way with all the fake gods. No proof horus existed at all while there is proof of Jesus existance and Jesus belongs to all people who accept Him, not just Egyptians. And Jesus, because he is real, has millions of followers still all over the world. What few sillies still creep around after the fake god horus do so mostly in secret and exist largely in egypt.
It Is W i d e l y Questioned Whether Pagan god Horus Was Born of A Virgin As Is Often C l a I m e d. Is He M e morex Or Not? Jesus Of Nazareth I s R e a l God. ><> --------------------- Read More, Visit: --------------------- ><> http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Immaculate_conception
... the claim that Jesus is a copy of mythological gods originated with authors whose works have been discounted by academia, contain logical fallacies, and cannot compare to the New Testament Gospels, which have withstood nearly 2,000 years of intense scrutiny. The alleged parallels between Jesus and other gods disappear when the original myths are examined. The Jesus-is-a-myth theory relies on selective descriptions, redefined words, and false assumptions. Jesus Christ is unique in history, with His voice rising above all false gods' as He asks the question that ultimately determines a person?s eternal destiny: "Who do you say I am?" (Matthew 16:15).
