Even secular scholars have rejected the idea of Christianity borrowing from the ancient mysteries.
So if there was any influence of one on the other, it was the influence of the historical event of the New Testament (resurrection) on mythology, not the reverse.
The only known account of a god surviving death that predates Christianity is the Egyptian cult god Osiris.
Such a preserved specimen is called a "fossil" if it is older than some minimum age, most often the arbitrary date of 10,000 years.
The observation that certain fossils were associated with certain rock strata led early geologists to recognize a geological timescale in the 19th century.
We are told that of all the radiometric dates that are measured, only a few percent are anomalous.
This gives us the impression that all but a small percentage of the dates computed by radiometric methods agree with the assumed ages of the rocks in which they are found, and that all of these various methods almost always give ages that agree with each other to within a few percentage points.In this myth, Osiris is cut into fourteen pieces, scattered around Egypt, then reassembled and brought back to life by the goddess Isis.However, Osiris does not actually come back to physical life but becomes a member of a shadowy underworld... Enter a word (or two) above and you'll get back a bunch of portmanteaux created by jamming together words that are conceptually related to your inputs.are the preserved remains or traces of animals, plants, and other organisms from the remote past.On the surface, radiometric dating methods appear to give powerful support to the statement that life has existed on the earth for hundreds of millions, even billions, of years.
