Jesus vs. Horus: A Christmas Tale Smack down



Christmas Story Smackdown: A comparison of the many similarities between Jesus and Horus, who predated Jesus by 3,000 years.
Jesus vs Horus

Bill O'Reilly and Fox News are perpetuating this myth of "The War on Christmas", for perspective I would like to compare the origins of the Jesus story versus Horus, an Egyptian God. Jesus, if we are to believe the folklore, lived closer in time to us [roughly 2,000 years ago] than he did to Horus [3,000+ years before Jesus]. I offer this comparison merely to show that what many today view as an original and one of a kind story is actual a fairly common tale throughout the ancient world of mythology, with Horus being the originator of the meme.
