Discuss J H's answer to: How come Chistianity borrows so heavily from ...

How come Chistianity borrows so heavily from Mithras - worshipped by Pagans and the Romans, some two thousand years before Christ. Seems very suspicious to me.... Sound familiar...? ...

Jesus, Mithras, whatever. It's all only make believe and nobody need concern themselves about any of it.

First off there are No written narratives or theology from the religion that survive, with limited information to be derived from the stone inscriptions, and only brief or passing references in Greek and Latin. Interpretation of the physical evidence remains problematic and contested.The Romans themselves regarded the mysteries as having Persian or Zoroastrian sources. Since the early 1970s, however, the dominant scholarship has cast this origin in doubt, and regarded the mysteries of Mithras as a distinct product of the Roman imperial religious world. In this context, Mithraism has sometimes been viewed as a rival of early Christian religion.

You have no support for your claims, only hatred, prejudice and bias for the Christian religion

It's Christianity and those that are dumb enough to believe in it that make all the fanciful bullshit claims. Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence and what do all religious "faiths" have? Nada. Zilch. Zero. You believe in a crock of shit invented by ancient man.
