The idea of a risen god is a comforting idea, true, but the fact that Mark's account of Jesus' life can be found entirely in the Old Testament, in the Odyssey and in pagan myths of earlier dying/rising gods like the ones I named--that fact cannot be denied now and it can be clearly demonstrated with actual proof to anyone who's willing to listen. Here's is an analysis of the entire gospel of Mark verse by verse, story by story and where Mark got his source material from:

New Testament Narrative as Old Testament Midrash by Robert M. Price

The fact you're worshiping a god built entirely on pagan sources doesn't bother you in the least????????? That IS delusional.
why should it bother us?

a god built off of past observations is quite legitimate. The problem is when we don't change the old, incomplete, story line when observations clearly show it is different than our grandparents thought.

the biblegod is not what people think it is. what those people are actually experiencing is the system around them that is clearly better described as life over non life.

about the only two conditions that claim doesn't fit, describing it as "life" over "non-life", is militant atheism and fundy theism.

claims that hold true for more conditions are more valid than those that don't.

I'd go further and say, "If omegaxx can't describe his belief without the bible, then his belief is probably of no value at all.

You do know the Gospels didn’t just make that story up. It was prophecy from Isaiah 7:14 some 700 years before the Gospels. Far as I can tell Hercules was written 800-600 BC and Isaiah 700 BC.

14 Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.

So what are you saying about the validity of it in terms of being factual?

You don't reckon that the gospel writers could have read Isaiah before they started writing do ya?
