Jesus and Mithra

I found this at Throw Away Your TV. Follow the links and watch the video. It's well know by religious scholars that the Judeo-Christian tradition borrowed much of its mythology from its neighbors, and this provides some interesting evidence for origin the Jesus myth (which is not to say that Jesus did not exist, only that some of the mythology about his life added by later writers may have been borrowed from the earlier Mithra cult).
A little bit of history about our fun holiday, Christmas.

This brings up some interesting questions about Mithra and the similarities he has with Jesus. Either way, it's a very interesting tale.

You should Google this guy, plenty of information out there about him.
