I was fascinated by that Zeitgeist segment until I wanted to quote some actual facts about these gods on my blog. I could find almost nothing to support what Zeitgeist was saying. I am so glad someone made a poster like this, because atheism does not need to lie to support its position.

Of course Zeitgeist over simplified the fuck out of things. But the Attis one is more than close enough, The Horus myth actually varies depending on if you’re talking about the official hierarchal myth given by the Pharaohs and priests in power or some of the more rural Egyptian myths influenced more from pre-dynastic periods that never merged with the mainstream some of which include Isis becoming pregnant with Osiris’s child without actual intercourse. And Mithras is a deity with wildly diverse interpretations depending on which set of followers you’re looking at the myths of. This one is obviously looking specifically at a certain Roman sect since that’s the one that held Sunday as holy for Mithras.
