"Valid to conclude..."?
How can you conclude that the previous Horus myths influenced the Jesus story when you haven't given any specific evidence? Books have been mentioned as a vague reference and so far, the best I can do is pick out random peices, in these books and show how the belief that the Jesus story was influenced by earlier myths, as you put it, is flawed!
