The following continues the serialization of Chapter 5 from SIMPLE SOLUTIONS for Humanity as Section 1:

But was there a Jesus? (Section 1)

Found in the Pyramid Texts occurring around 2400 BC was information about Osiris, King of Kings, whose mother’s name was Nut. His coming was announced by Three Wise Men, his birth signified by the star in the east (Sirius) and who was resurrected after death. The 23rd Psalm (“valley of the shadow of death”) was copied from an Egyptian text appealing to Osiris. He had a son, in a convoluted way, named Horus.


Conceived by a virgin named Meri, with a foster father Jo-Seph, heralded by Sirius (the morning star), born on December 25 in a cave-manger attended by three wise men, with no data about his life between the ages of 12 and 30, having 12 disciples, performing miracles (including walking on water), known for a key Sermon on the Mount and self-designated God-man Savior of humanity, he died by crucifixion and resurrected three days later. His name was Horus, supposed son of Osiris. HUH??? He was born in Egypt in 1550 BC (yes, a millennium or so later, as I did say convoluted in the previous paragraph), but more than 1500 years before Jesus Christ. WHAT???


In 1027 BC, Beddou was born of a virgin, lived in the desert until the age of 30, performed miracles…you get the idea? This was in China. From India, Virishna (Krishna) was born in 1200 BC and Indra in 725 BC of virgins, performed miracles, crucified and resurrected. Much of the above and some of the below were inspired from The Book Your Church Doesn’t Want You to Read, by Tim Leedom and Maria Murdy, earlier mentioned.


That’s not all. Greek historian Herodotus wrote in the 5th Century BC about Greek God Dionysius, whose mother was a mortal virgin, father Zeus (King of Gods), wandered off to India, suffered like Jesus, and likewise was resurrected. In Islam, Jesus is called Isa and considered to be a prophet of God, most definitely not the Son of God, and is expected to return as a Savior. There are those who equate Jesus with Buddha, but only in principle, for the latter died from food poisoning, maybe. Oh, by the way, I should have added above that Buddha, a Hindu from Nepal, was born of virgin Maya, performed miracles, wandered around for a spell, died and ascended into Heaven somewhere between 544 BC and 383 BC. Mexican God Quetzacoatl was born about 300 BC of a virgin, wandered in the wilderness, preached, was crucified and resurrected three days later.


You can look at this in both ways. First, God had a game plan, tried it first in Egypt, and failed, so went around the world seeking other Messiahs. After umpteen failures, He found success with Jesus. But, then, second, if this God was omni-everything, why did he fail even once?

Section 2 will continue the story of Jesus.

The Mongols gained fame in the 13th century when under Chinggis KHAN they established a huge Eurasian empire through conquest. After his death the empire was divided into several powerful Mongol states, but these broke apart in the 14th century. The Mongols eventually retired to their original steppe homelands and in the late 17th century came under Chinese rule. Mongolia won its independence in 1921 with Soviet backing and a Communist regime was installed in 1924. The modern country of Mongolia, however, represents only part of the Mongols' historical homeland; more Mongols live in the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region in the People's Republic of China than in Mongolia. Following a peaceful democratic revolution, the ex-Communist Mongolian People's Revolutionary Party (MPRP) won elections in 1990 and 1992, but was defeated by the Democratic Union Coalition (DUC) in the 1996 parliamentary election. The MPRP won an overwhelming majority in the 2000 parliamentary election, but the party lost seats in the 2004 election and shared power with democratic coalition parties from 2004-2008. The MPRP regained a solid majority in the 2008 parliamentary elections; the prime minister and a majority of cabinet members are currently MPRP members.

Mongolia has about three times the population of Hawaii, but 5500 times more land area, although more interestingly, this country has about the same land area of the USA with 100 times fewer people/square mile.
