I'm frankly shocked and appalled that this forum does not have a 3 word story thread.  That I could find anyway.  Almost every forum has one.  Yet I'm not brave enough to make one.

 It does actually. I'd dig it up for you if I weren't so lazy.

 Really?  I tried googling for it but found nothing.  Not that it's a big deal.

What do you think of this article, more specifically the subject matter of it than the article itself?  Not trying to be challenging or mocking, I'm just really curious as to how you would explain it?  This isn't very detailed, but it was the best article I could find quickly enough.  It didn't mention that Horus was also resurrected and ascended to the heavens after three days of being dead, but I have seen other places that indicated this.  Not saying the story of Jesus was plagiarized from an egyptian tale that predates it by thousands of years, because I don't have to.

On a similar note, the story of Noah and the ark (even down to the detail of a dove signifying dry land) also appears thousands of years before Judaism, and the story of Moses, with the same basic idea of the same story with different names (although the story of moses the earlier versions had somewhat similar names)

If a being of supernatural, yet eternal, intentions might exist, is it not possible that his message may be consistent in its elements, yet stressed somewhat differently to disparate peoples?

To clarify, is it not possible that God might merely enjoy recounting the same tales?

 Actually, that's exactly what I believe.  I personally don't believe that the story of Jesus is untrue, I just believe it's a retelling of a different story with changed names, and with details altered to fit the desired culture or audience.  I was not saying that this makes the story of Jesus untrue, I think it's true, it just may not have been "Jesus of Nazareth".

However, I find Ric's points about finding similarities between two things very weak.


Sure you can find similarities in anything, but let's look at these similarities:

*Both born of a virgin

*Both had stars signifying their birth
*Both teachers at age 12.  SPECIFICALLY age 12.

*Both "baptized" at age 30, specifically.
*Both tempted by the evil force, on a mountain.

* Both crucified, then ascended to heaven.

Those are pretty damn specific, and I don't think you can find those similarities between two random people.


Like I said, I still think the story is true, I just believe the story of Jesus and the story of Horus are merely retellings of the same story.

Because there are other threads and sections of the forum specifically for talking about general star wars related stuff.

Is it REALLY that complicated? It's easy, I promise.

There's nothing wrong with liking the clone wars, it's just that you have asked the same questions about edits and their relation to them a lot of times. 

Fair enough, sorry for being a jerk.  Not sorry enough to bail you out of reading the thread though.  You might enjoy it, it is quite interesting in places.  Basically he made kickass mockups, if you want more than that you'll have to read.

Since you think North Korea had every right to threaten to nuke Sony

 I sincerely doubt anybody said that.

I would say it's pretty clear he is saying Sony are the bad guys and no one should ever be allowed to make fun of North Korea because they are blameless victims and Sony left them with no choice but to hack them and threaten a nuclear strike.  I'd say it's pretty clear he thinks they are heroes for doing this.

I am done debating this since everyone seems to agree that free speech should be done away with and no one can ever question the actions of the North Korean government.  

 Obviously everybody thinks that, it's the only sane thing.  Free speech?  Fuck that.
