What do Jesus, Muhammad, and Hercules have in common?

I'm always amazed at how billions are unable to distinguish between commonly accepted myths and their particular chosen myth masquerading as reality.

And I'm saddened that my own childhood indoctrination prevented me from seeing through this for decades.

Good stuff!

Sometimes /r/atheism gives something good- but most of the time it's kind of an annoying place to be. Sad

I can't remember all the details but it's called the Mediterranean Hero Motif

Characters in heroic fiction from this part of the world have some, if not all of, the following characteristics.

The hero

1) Is born to a Virgin, generally on December 25
2) Is a child teacher.
3) Father is a king.
4) Is a God or the Son of a God
5) Is living outside of his fathers kingdom
6) Is anointed at age 30
7) Travels throughout the countryside, performs miracles, even brings the dead back to life.
8) Has a band of followers, generally twelve in number.
9) Slays a dragon
10) Marries a princess
11) Known as the Lamb, the Light, King of Kings, etc.
12) Is rejected by his own people
13) Is betrayed by one of his followers, generally for a small sum of money.
14) Is killed under mysterious circumstances, generally at the top of a hill.
15) Is buried, but is raised up from the dead.
16) Returns to his fathers kingdom to sit at his right hand.

Jesus of Nazareth, Dionysus, Mythra, Hercules, even Robin Hood match up with many, if not all of those characteristics.

I thought there was 23 of them things, Carlo. And Theseus and Oedipus out-Jesus the Christ. Tongue

Thing that sux about being old, is that all this stuff is old. Hobo There's me being old. What's funny is that we're all fictional characters to each other.

Can you back that up with published papers? Books don't count here.

Give me your argument in the form of a published paper, and then we can start to talk.
