Hi Kees,

Without wishing to steal Milo's thunder, this is an issue that has interested me for a while.

While there has been material available for some time highlighting the similarity between the Jesus myth (see Gerald Massey) and many previous traditions, this subject has really only come to light on a large scale in the last 10 years or so - particulary through the sharing of ideas over the internet.

in essence, many who call themselves christian, have had to reasses and adjust their cosmology. The idea of a 'pre world jesus' appears popular among those who wish to retain their faith in a figure who facilitates exclusive salvation, without denying the many objective historical anomolies.

I would be the first to admit that many in the 'revisionist' camp (those that deny a literal interpretaion of Jesus) have often been over zealous in their methodology. But while the method is often flawed, the evidence is undeniable.


I don't think i've ever heard of a christian who was aware of these historical precursers and <b>then</b> converting to christianity. It always seems to be the other way around - a kind of reverse engineering of faith.
