Yes...that's how you will see it, but it's more like I came to the conclusion that I couldn't know Jesus cause Jesus doesn't exist...his story is one and the same with many other saviors and sons of god
Yes-- same for me. I cannot accept a mythical figure as real.

It **is**.

You haven't even **tried** to prove your ugly myth-god real.

You **dare** not!

You **know** your god isn't, in fact, real... deep down, you know this.

That is why you are afraid to try to prove it.

you guys remind me of the 5th grader that tries to impress all his friends by using foul language and trying to act tough. You know how dumb you all sound? Christian Hitler, killing babies, etc. shows how far out of tough with reality all of you are. No wonder you make up less than 10% of the population.

One good example of this copying of Text is the story of "Noah's Ark". A very similar epic appeared some thousands of years before the bible in Ancient Sumeria. Only, in the Ancient Sumerian Epic, Enki (The God of Science and Engineering) appeared to Ziusudra and instructed him to build a boat that would be able to withstand a large wave of water, as some of the other Gods had been planning to let humanity suffer in the coming deluge. Enki also instructed Ziusudra to take onto the boat the "seeds of life", so that after the flood, life could be sustained on earth once again.
This epic appeared thousands of years before "Noah's Ark" of the bible.

There are tons of other examples. Everything in the bible, even down to the "star characters" has it's Pagan match and was stolen from Pagan Texts.
"Jewish monotheism was stolen from Egyptian Akhenaton
The Jewish creation was stolen from the Egyptian Creation ¹
The Jewish Yahweh's use of the word to create was stolen from the Egyptians (Jewish Yaweh replaces Ptah)²

"Let there be Light" was stolen from the Theban Creation epic.³
The "firmament in the midst of the waters…" was stolen from the Egyptian Creation4
Adam and Eve were stolen from the Egyptian Geb and Nut 5

Eve coming from Adam's rib was stolen from the Epic of Enki and

The zodiac is mentioned in the Bible at Job 38:32, where the author refers to the "Mazzaroth"/12 signs.

The tribes of Israel are split into 12.

Jesus has 18 years missing, which happen to be between the ages of 12 and 30. 12 astrological signs split into 30 degree segments on the circular zodiac chart. Of course the Sun is placed in the middle of the chart on the cross formed by the solstices and equinoxes.

If you are looking for exact correlations between each apostle and the equivalent star sign, apparently Clement of Alexandria wrote about the Valentian Gnostic Theodotus identifying the 12 apostles with the 12 signs of the zodiac, also apparently Josephus and Philo equate the 12 apostles with the 12 astrological start signs. It might not be so easy to find those texts though.

Yeah... nobody "knows" Jesus. Outside of the bible, there is no solid evidence that even hints at his actually have existed in the first place.

"I know Jesus" is something the fundies say because it scores them brownie points with the other fundies they come in contact with. It's no different than a pentecostal squirming around on the floor making stupid sounds that are interpreted be another idiot as something special. It's nothing but a show put on by the less inhibited (willing to make a spectacle of themselves in public) to impress the more demure among them.
