Zeitgeist Refuted and Exposed

Unknown year Religion 2.77K Views 5 Comments
Even secular scholars have rejected the idea of Christianity borrowing from the ancient mysteries. The well-respected Sir Edward Evans-Pritchard writes in Theories of Primitive Religion that “The evidence for this theory… is negligible.” “The first real parallel of a dying and rising god does not appear until A.D. 150, more than a hundred years after the origin of Christianity. So if there was any influence of one on the other, it was the influence of the historical event of the New Testament [resurrection] on mythology, not the reverse. The only known account of a god surviving death that predates Christianity is the Egyptian cult god Osiris.

In this myth, Osiris is cut into fourteen pieces, scattered around Egypt, then reassembled and brought back to life by the goddess Isis. However, Osiris does not actually come back to physical life but becomes a member of a shadowy underworld…This is far different than Jesus’ resurrection account where he was the gloriously risen Prince of life who was seen by others on earth before his ascension into heaven.” –Dr. Norman Geisler.

  • This film, Zeitgeist Refuted, does not refute anything whatsoever. It is a bunch of fundamentalist religious people citing their belief and faith as proof of God, then supporting their ejaculations with more belief, then more faith, and then to top it all off they close with even more belief and even more faith. They offer not one shred of fact or evidence to support their claims. It may be news to many in the general public, but the information in the religious part of Zeitgeist is old, well accepted hat in academia. That Jesus is a myth contrived partly from earlier god myths, and partly from a Markan composite of characters from the Homeric epics is well know and widely accepted by thousands of historians, archaeologists, anthropologists, linguists, classical studies scholars, theologians, etc., in the US and around the world. This fact seems new to some people because most scholars (in the US at least) don't publish their research findings to the general public, because they know they will be viciously attacked by christians.
