You've probably heard this before. Supposedly, there are a huge load of similarities between the story of Jesus and the stories of other Gods such as Horus and Dionysus, including things like a virgin birth, walking on water and having 12 disciples.
I've seen a lot of conflicting sources on the matter. Not sure which is true.
So take up this thread to tackle the issue.

The claims of similarity are apparentely completely unfounded and over-stretched. I think there's also debate on which came first in some cases.

Can't find the source >.<

Poseidon was able to grant people the ability to walk on water. For example, Poseidon gave his son Orion the power to walk on water.

I think our debate sparked this topic. Seems like an awful big coincidence this tread was made the same day I made the argument of similarities between Christianity and various religions under Roman Occupation.

I actually haven't seen whatever you're referring to. It was sparked by Facebook.
