I see a lot of people trying to draw ANY similarity between Jesus and other Deities. I saw this Gif Meme that was drawing the same birthdays as December 25th for Jesus, Osiris, Horus, Buddha. Which doesn’t even make sense.
Osiris is said to be August 24, Buddha between April and May,
The only references as being born to a “virgin mother” on December 25 is Horus Dionysus but again I feel like this is a stretch.
Like the first story I heard of Isis was that she found Osiris phallus and used it to produce Horus. Now more and more information is being written to paint her as the original Mother Mary. Which is kind of annoying. But ok.
I honestly feel like this is almost like Santeria/ Catholicism and how Ifa/ Yoruba religion was merged and hidden behind Christianity to preserve the knowledge and practice is their Gods. For instance The Virgin Mary (Christianity) is associated with Yemya (Yoruba) in Santería because Yemya is the Mother if All.
So why is Isis so important in America?
So for me all these associations are very similar to this act of merging their “pagan” Gods or culture with Christianity to preserve there culture in some way. While I can understand this act. Especially under the violent use of Christianity as a tool and or reason to enter into countries and colonize them.
I find it to be REALLY problematic in the most recent efforts of the New Age to appear woke.
I wonder if New Agers realize they are tools of the New World Order?
Meh that’s another post.
The most recent efforts of the New Age is to merge all deities with Jesus or “Christ Consciousness” is problematic because they are just ripping parts of religions they find cool or pretty or similar and remixing it for their benefit/profit. Basically colonizing religion/belief systems.
Shit is really getting on my nerves.
The other problem with this merge that is happening is that you erase the truth of that particular religion, belief system. Those Gods, and information is then lost. Whatever history, dates, information, ideas and concepts from ancient times are again lost when you do this gaslighty merge of belief systems. I’m a preservationists even though I am a pseudo Christian.
I grew up understanding that we did not know the exact birth of Jesus but we celebrated in this time because that is around the time the Star of Bethlehem would be have been in the sky. But it could have been done to preserve pagan feast days/solstices. I read that Jesus could have been born in January as well. That is known as the “Old Christmas Day”.
All these merges and misinformation is disrespectful to other belief systems and dangerous spiritually in this instance.
