While cruising the net earlier, I found this site, where the author of the page says he will pay $1000 to the first person who can show him that the similar origin stories of Jesus, Krishna, Horus, Mithra are legitimate, and will stand up to the scrutiny of a religious person. In other words, it seems that the Bible is good enough for stories of Jesus, but he requires more detailed, cited info for any others, since they came before the Jesus mythos.
My impression is that the author of the website thinks he’s going to be objective about any evidence. But I get the feeling that anything that counters his pre-conceived notions is going to be discounted.
So, Dopers…can you collect $1000?
