i never claimed jesus didn't study other systems. in fact i provided links in another post that show he it is claimed he studied the egyptian gnostics, the jains, buddhist, and hindus, probably even pagans of varying orders.<quoted text>Actually, yes really. All the teachings of Jesus are "borrowed" from older sources, for example from the teachings of Buddha. Many of Jesus teachings are almost word for word identical with some of Buddhas sayings (400 years earlier). There is NO contemporary historical record of ANY kind of Jesus!! No written Roman, Greek or Jewish sources from this time (apart from the gospels) know of any historical Jesus or Christ. We don't even know who the writers of the Gospels were, and don't have the original manuscripts themselves either. We just have later copies of copies of copies of copies of copies of the assumed lost originals. And with each copy the copyist usually felt free to alter details or rewrite whole parts of the manuscript.(We usually don't trust dubious anonymous sources as evidence for anything, do we?) Only a fool or simpleton would believe anything about this myth named jesus.
