25 December - Big Birthday day

20 December 2013, 18:39

It's almost Xmas - so a huge birthday wish goes out to baby Jesus for the 25th... and, of course, to Sir Isaac Newton (who definitely lived)...

Ooooh...
And, also born on this day, a HUGE Happy Birthday wish must also and equally be given to:

Horus - Egypt 3000 BC
Born Dec. 25, born of a virgin, birth was signaled by the east star, adored by 3 kings, had 12 disciples, performed miracles, known as "lamb of god" and "the light", crucified, was buried 3 days, was resurrected.

Attis - Greece 1200 BC
Born Dec. 25, born of a virgin, was crucified, dead for 3 days, was resurrected.

Mithra - Persia 1200 BC
Born Dec. 25, born of a virgin, had 12 disciples, performed miracles, dead for 3 days, resurrected, known as "the truth" and "the light", sunday was the day of worship.

Krishna - India 900BC
Born of a virgin, birth signalled by east star, performed miracles, was resurrected.

Dionysus - Greece 500 BC
Born Dec. 25, born of a virgin, performed miracles, known as "king of kings" and "alpha and omega", was resurrected upon death.

Of course, that brings us up to a whopping big birthday bash for at least 40 gods with these similar characteristics:

Born of virgin on December 25;
Stars appeared at their births;
visited by Magi from the east;
turned water into wine;
healed the sick;
cast out demons;
performed miracles;
transfigured before followers;
rode donkeys into the city;
betrayed for 30 pieces of silver;
celebrated communal meal with bread and wine;
which represented the savior's flesh and blood;
killed on a cross or tree;
descended into hell;
resurrected on third day;
ascended into heaven;
to forever sit beside Father God and become Divine Judge.

To vote or not to vote - that is ...

The right to vote is one of the most basic and fundamental rights in a democracy, but to vote or not to vote (with apology to Shakespeare), seems to be the question. Read more...
