Around my eighth birthday, it was a crisp winter evening. I had my tie and other dorky-looking dress clothes on. Impatiently waiting to receive my first communion. Finally, I could stand in line and receive some bread (representing the body of Christ) with everyone else at the end of the Sunday service. This sacramental bread has a very dull, distinct, instant saliva absorbing taste to it. The only downside now was confessing my sins. I only recall doing this a few times. The first time, I confessed something along the lines of calling a friend some negative, derogatory term of some sort. The priest made me sit with my rosary and say these funny-sounding prays, over and over and over, and finally, later that day, I was forgiven.
My relationship with the church throughout my life was like that ex-girlfriend you break up with on and off and expect a different outcome the next five tries. I wouldn’t be forced to go that often but spent the better part of the summers at my grandparents, and we would go almost every Sunday, which was fine. I heard a guy in a funny-looking gown speak some weird dialect, sing a few songs, get some bread, and we were out. Long story short, what religion scared me into believing was if your bad, you will burn in hell for eternity, half the shit I did or wanted to do was a sin, the afterlife is better than this one, god is always watching you, stalking you, so don’t even think a bad thought, and finally, the scariest of all was no sex till marriage! I bought into it all, too, every single story I heard that’s found within the bible. It was in my very early teens, and I would start to question my own beliefs. I did extensive research trying to find a shred of proof that Jesus existed and or any of the Bible’s stories to be true. Here’s what I found.
Throughout history, there have been many depictions of the sun, whether it be carving in caves, temples, and many monuments throughout the world, throughout many different cultures. They paid their respect to the glowing hot yellow ball because they knew it advanced their crops, and without it, no living thing would survive on this planet.
The zodiac calendar is the oldest known calendar to man. In the middle of it depicts a picture of the sun, often known as the god sun. The calendar also represents the 12 months, the four seasons, and the solstices and equinoxes. The zodiac calendar was personified as figures or animals. Not only did the earliest civilizations follow the sun and stars, but they also personified them. They made up fables about their movements and relationships. With its life-saving qualities, the sun was personified as the unseen creator or god: God’s son, the light of the world, and humankind’s saviour.
Likewise, the 12 constellations were represented travel for god sun. They were given names and pictures from things going on in that time period—for example, Aquarius, the water bearer, transfers the spring rain. Horus was the sun god of Egypt in 3000 BC. Horus was known as the light and had an enemy known asset; the set was known as the darkness of night. Dark versus light, or good versus evil, is the most esoteric mythological dualities ever known. Still is being expressed, on all sorts of levels, to this day.
Now, let us take a look at Horus, Jesus, and people alike, throughout history. Horus was born on December 25th to a virgin named Mary. A star in the east accompanied his birth. He was a teacher by the age of 12, was baptized at the age of 30. He travelled with 12 disciples, performing miracles, like healing the sick and walking on water. He was crucified, died, and was buried. He then resurrected three days later. Attis was born in Greece in 1200 BC born to a virgin. On December 25th, he was crucified, died for three days, then resurrected. In India, Krishna was born of a virgin in 900 BC, accompanied by a star in the east, performed miracles with his disciples, after his death, he would resurrect. Dionysus, born a virgin, on December 25th, in Greece, in 500 BC. He performed miracles, such as turning water into wine.
Upon his death, he was resurrected. In Persia, Mirtha was born of a virgin in 1200 BC, on December 25th, had 12 disciples, which he performed miracles with, died for three days, buried, then resurrected. Jesus Christ was born of a virgin on December 25th, accompanied by three kings. He had 12 disciples, performed many miracles, died for three days, and then he would resurrect. There have been at least 36 other saviours worldwide throughout history, who all share very similar characteristics.
Along with many other stories in the bible, the story of Jesus is just astrological events in the sky. Sirius is the brightest star in the east. On December 24th, it aligns with the three stars of Orion’s belt. Those three stars have always been called the three kings. On December 25, these three stars, along with Sirius, point directly towards the sun, or God’s sun. The Virgin Mary is known as the Virgo constellation. In Latin, Virgo literally means virgin. Virgo also is referred to as the house of bread. In ancient times, they personified Virgo as a virgin holding wheat. Bethlehem is just an allusion to the constellation Virgo, a place in the sky, not here on earth. Transitioning from the summer solstice to the winter solstice, days get shorter, symbolizing the sun’s death.
