“The Egyptian goddess who was equally the Great Virgin (hwnt) and Mother of the God was the object of the very same praise bestowed upon her successor [Mary, Virgin Mother of Jesus]” - "Isis in the ancient world" by Egyptologist Dr. Reginald E. Witt.
1. In a text in the Abydos Temple of Seti !, Isis herself declares: "I am the great VIRGIN"
2. Found among the glyphs of Denderah, are glyphs depicting the sex between Isis and Osiris. The glyphs show Isis sending out her Bah (spirit), Sother (a hawk), the hawk being inseminated on Osiris' phallus, and then returning back to Isis. Thus, the sex between Isis and Osiris was non-physical, leaving her virginity intact.

Horus, the child is crowned in the seat of Osiris at the end of three days. In the lunar typing, Osiris dies at the winter solstice to be reborn again as Horus on the third day in the moon.
“In the Orient, however, the birth and the baptism of Jesus were celebrated respectively on January 5 and 6. B. Botte, a Belgian Benedictine scholar, in a significant study concludes that this date also evolved from an originally pagan feast, namely Epiphany, which commemorated the birth and growth of light.” -
*The Meaning, Celebration and Date of Christmas,
by Dr. Samuele Bacchiocchi, p.24
"the date of Christ’s birth did not become an issue until sometime in the fourth century. At that time the dispute centered primarily over two dates for Christ’s birth: December 25 promoted by the Church of Rome and January 6, known as the Epiphany, observed by the Eastern churches. “Both these days,were pagan festivals whose meaning provided a starting point for the specifically Christian conception of Christmas." -

The Middle Kingdom (2055-1650 BC) he assumed the role of the Great Judge of souls in the netherworld who dispensed bread and bear to the justified souls. Every year in the town of Abydos his death and resurrection after 3 days were celebrated in a publicly enacted passion play called the Mysteries of Osiris...

"Babel is also the place of the origin of the infamous mother-child cult. According to extrabiblical tradition, Nimrods wife, Semiramis, had a son named Tammuz through an alleged miraculous conception. According to tradition, Tammuz was killed by a wild animal and miraculously restored to life. The legend of Semiramis and Tammuz eventually spread from Babel thorughout the world, but their names were changed in different cultures. In Assyria, the mother was Ishtar and the son was Tammuz. In Phoenicia, it was Astarte and Baal. In Egypt, it was Isis and Osiris or Horus. In Greece, it was Aphrodite and Eros. In Rome, it was Venus and Cupid."
Black Athena: The linguistic evidence By Martin Bernal
"Diodorus quoted Egyptians who told him that Isis had discovered many drugs and had resurrected her dead son Horus and made him immortal. This idea about Isis clearly came from a very early ancient tradition. In the Pyramid Texts, inscribed 2500 years earlier, Isis and her sister Nephthys arrived "with healing on their wings" to heal and resuscitate Osiris. Thus, there is no doubt that Isis's association with healing and revivifying far atedated any possible Greek influence"

"The dead Osiris, however, was deified and a personal creed was attached to his life and death, which was very much like that of Christianity based on the suffering and death of Jesus."
"As another example of assimilation between Horus and Christ may be cited a bas-relief on the wall of the early Egyptian Church belonging to the Memnonium at Abydos. In it Christ is portrayed sitting on his throne with the horned disk of Horus and holding a modification of the staff or crook of Osiris."

"The mood is characteristic for a cult which celebrates a RESURRECTED god: yet the rites described by Ikhernofret would seem appropriate to the cult, not of a "dying god" but of a dead king."

Star in the East=Krishna's birth was signaled by the Star in the East. In the Srimad Bhagavatam Canto 10 Chapter 3 "The Birth of Krishna" the very first line reads: "Then there was the supreme hour all-auspicious and most suitable with the ROHINI CONSTELLATION rising and all the stars in a FAVORABLE POSITION."
Rohini's corresponding star is Aldebaran. In hindu astronomy Rohini is identified as Aldebaran, which is the next star in the Star in the East's alignment with Orion's Belt.
VISHNU PURANA BOOK V CHAPTER 2 the first verse states quote:
"The nurse of the universe, Jagaddhatri, thus enjoined by the god of gods, CONVEYED SIX SEVERAL EMBRYOS into the womb of Devaki, and the SEVENTH ONE, after a season into Rohini's womb."
According to the Srimad Bhagavatam, Vishnu chose Devaki and Vasudeva because they lived the most non-sensual, austere lives. It states that they endured aeons of "TAPASYA" or "MORTIFICATION" (no sex or material enjoyments -- extreme self-discipline). Furthermore, the reason they could not give birth to Krishna in thier PAST LIVES was due to having sex just once (gramya-dharma or gramya-bhogan). Instead, they gave birth to Pris'nigarbha (an incomplete Krishna)
2 Bhagavad Gita, 10.20; Campbell, 315
"As Vishnu, Krishna is the second person of the TRINITY, he is considered the "Beginning, the Middle and the End," ("Alpha and Omega"), as well as being omniscient, omnipresent and omnipotent."
Dr. Zacharias P. Thundy states of Jesus dying on the cross:
"This is the story of Gautama, a holy man, who was wrongfully condemned to die on the cross for murdering the courtesan Bhadra. Gautama is impaled on the cross, and his mentor Krishna Dvapayana visits him and enters into a long dialogue, at the end of which he dies at the place of skulls after engendering two offspring, the progenitors of the Ikshavaku Dynasty"

Dr. David John Tacey (110):
"Especially significant for us is the fact that the Phrygian Attis was crucified upon the tree..."
*Fiction, and the Unconscious Tacey, David John. Patrick White:
*"Passion of Attis," is also related by Professor Merlin Stone:
Roman reports of the rituals of Cybele record that the son...was first tied to a tree and then buried. Three days later a light was said to appear in the burial tomb, whereupon Attis rose from the dead, bringing salvation with him in his rebirth.
Stone, Merlin. "When God was a Woman"
Dr. Andrew T. Fear states:
"The youthful Attis after his murder was miraculously brought to life again three days after his demise. The celebration of this cycle of death and renewal was one of the major festivals of the metroac cult. Attis therefore represented a promise of reborn life and as such it is not surprising that we find representations of the so-called mourning Attis as a common tomb motif in the ancient world."
Attis: Crucified on a Tree
"Pines, high-girdled, in a leafy crest, the favorite of the God's Great Mother (Grata Deum Matri),

""One of these was the worship of Mithras, an Indo-Aryan deity.. associated with the heavens and light. His cult entered the Roman Empire in the first century BCE and during the formative decades of the Christian movement was a formidable rival to the latter.. Given his solar associations, it made sense to believe that he had been born on the darkest day of the year, the winter solstice. That falls this year on December 21 but the Romans celebrated the birth feast of Mithras on December 25!"
Gary Leupp is Professor of History at Tufts University, and Adjunct Professor of COMPARATIVE Religion.
Dr. Badi Badiozamani states: "a "person" named "Mehr" or Mithra was "born of a VIRGIN named Nahid Anahita ("immaculate") and that "the worship of Mithra and Anahita, the virgin mother of Mithra, was well-known in the Achaemenian period [558-330 BCE]"
"Liber the son of Jupiter and Proserpina, was ripped apart by the Titans. Jupiter ground up his heart, put it in a potion, and gave it to Semele to drink. When she became pregnant from this, Juno took the form of Beroe, Semele's nurse and said to her, "dear CHILD, ask Jupiter to come to you as he comes to Juno, so that you may know how great a pleasure it is to lie with a god.Prodded in this fashion, she asked Jupiter to do so and was STRUCK by a thunderbolt. Jupiter took Liber out of her womb and gave him to Nysus to raise. This is why he is called Dionysus and TWICE MOTHERED." HYGINUS FABULAE 167 (1st Century BC)  CLXVII. LIBER
This means, 1. Dionysus was placed into the heart of Semele, NOT BY SEXUAL UNION.

The True Meaning of December 25th

"Burkhard Scherer, Reader in Religious Studies at England's Canterbury Christ Church University has stated: "...it is very important to draw attention to the fact that there is [massive] Buddhist influence in the Gospels....Since more than a hundred years, Buddhist influence in the Gospels has been known and acknowledged by scholars from BOTH sides."
"Historian Jerry H. Bentley notes "the possibility that Buddhism influenced the early development of Christianity" and that scholars "have drawn attention to many parallels concerning the births, lives, doctrines, and deaths of the Buddha and Jesus"
History of Religions, Professor E. Washburn Hopkins of Yale goes so far as to say, "Finally, the life, temptation, miracles, parables, and even the disciples of Jesus have been derived directly from Buddhism."
"The Buddha Legend and the Life of Jesus", Professor Rudolf Seydel of the University of Leipzig noted around fifty similarities between Buddhist and Christian parables and teachings.
Dr. Christian Lindtner writes:
"The Sanskrit manuscripts prove without a shadow of doubt:
Everything that Jesus says or does was already said or done by the Buddha.
Jesus, therefore, is a mere literary fiction.
The Last Supper was the Last Supper of the Buddha.
Baptism in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit was baptism in
the name of the Buddha, the Dharma and the Samgha.
All the miracles performed by Jesus had already been performed by the Buddha"
"The twelve disciples of Jesus were, in fact, the twelve disciples of the Buddha.(picture on my page
it was king Gautama—not Jesus—who was crucified.
It was Tathâgata—not Jesus—who was resurrected....
There is nothing in the Gospels, no person, no event, that cannot be traced back
to cognate persons, events or circumstances in the Buddhist gospels.
Jesus is a Buddha disguised as a new Jewish legislator, teacher, Messiah and
king of Israel"
Dr. Friedrich Max Müller said:
"Between the language of The Buddha and his disciples, and the language of Christ and his apostles, there are strange coincidences. Even some Buddhist legends and parables sound as if taken from the New Testament, though we know that many of them existed before the beginning of the Christian era."
HORUS THE STAR
In the early dynastic period (ca. 3000 - 2600 BCE) Horus is explicitly identified as a star. An annal from the first dynasty reign of King Aha bears the name “Festival of the Horus-Star-of-the-Gods.”
Early royal domain names likewise contain reference to the Horus-star. The domain established by Anedjib (also First Dynasty) was called Hr-sb~-ht, “Horus, star of the corporation (of gods).”12 Hetepsekhemwy (Second Dynasty) founded a new domain called Hr-sb~-b~w (Cant get those symbols correct!), “Horus risen as a star.”

Early Christian tradition says that Jesus was born in a cave:
Justin Martyr wrote in the second century CE that Jesus was born in a cave. 1
The Gospel of James, a.k.a. Infancy Gospel of James and the Protoevangelium of James, written circa 150 CE described the birth as being in a cave."
"Alternately, the early Christian belief that Yeshua was born in a cave may well be a myth without historical foundation. It may have been a traditional belief imported from Mithraism. A cave was a common female fertility symbol found in many religions worldwide." "There was a firm tradition that Mithras (a.k.a. Mitra, Meitros, Mihr, Mehr, and Meher) was born in a cave. and later as an adult resurrected from a different cave."
Origen of Alexandria wrote during the second century CE in his book "Against Celsus" that:
"...there is shown at Bethlehem the cave where He was born and the manger in the CAVE where He was wrapped in swaddling-clothes. And this sight is greatly talked of in surrounding places, even among the enemies of the faith, it being said that in this cave was born that Jesus who is worshipped and reverenced by the Christians."

"It is therefore likely that Horus-sopd as the offspring of Osiris-Orion and Isis-Sothis is an ASTRAL CONCEPT in the first place and the Osirian complexion of the idea is secondary, although, as we shall see, the bond between Osiris and Orion was important in one other respect."
When the Heliopolitan priesthood made ISIS the mother of Horus the child, they were perhaps consciously varying the early tradition of HATHOR being the mother of Horus but it is clear that the creation of the young Horus arises mythologically from the position resulting rom the identification of Osiris and the King.
