"Fake saviors". Which really interests me, because I want to know how we know Jesus was a "real savior"? How does one prove that sort of thing. It's interesting.
Don't forget Odin.

And every Green Man archetype on the planet.

Everyone has their own right to believe in something different, even if a book is telling you that you don't, you really do.

Which is why if Jesus had a wife, and it was proven historical fact, it wouldn't change much. Some people will still declare it a lie, others will add it in to their beliefs, others already thought it. So in the end, it's interesting, but it doesn't really matter.

Unless they find a living descendant of Jesus. Then that might be cool.
Definitely agree, especially with the first paragraph.

True. And Horus. Think Gilgamesh had quite a few similarities, too. That's one of my favorite stories to read on a rainy day.

Perun too. :P

Interestingly, Jove (as in, By Jove!) would have been pronounced by Ovid as yaw-way. Jupiter (yoo-pee-tayr) means "Father Jove" in the dative case. So the Romans totally rogued the Hebrew YHWH and slapped his name on the Greek Zeus. It made my English teacher's head explode. lol

Lol, a lot of Latin translations are like that.

MY head exploded in my Latin classes. Lol. I had this on my binder: "Latin is a dead language, as dead as can be...killed off all the Romans, and now it's killing me".

The Romans pretty much rogued everything. They weren't much for original thinking.

lol! My teacher HATED when people called it dead. She spent the first semester doing nothing but classical pronunciation, and after that it was the only language we were allowed to speak in class. That's when it clicked with the English class. lol.

She used to be on a panel that Oxford graduate students going for their doctorates in Latin had to present to. She said it made her screaming angry that NONE of them know how to pronounce the language they were trying to get a doctorate in, and nobody else on the panel even cared because it was "dead".

Oddly enough, mine was the same way with the pronunciation. He was neat, though, and in the upper levels it was generally only maybe 3-5 students per class so we were a bit more relaxed with the speaking it in class.

I personally found it sad that our first books were elementary level books from other countries! I never realized until I took those classes that Latin is definitely NOT dead.

For the longest time I thought they at least came up with their own names. It used to irritate me that they "stole" the Greek pantheon and just renamed everyone. Ah well.
