Religulous – Was Jesus Copied?

For those of you who have seen the “documentary” by Bill Maher called “Religulous”, you’ll recall that Maher feels he has a knockdown argument against Christianity by claiming that Jesus was merely a carbon copy of pagan gods prior to his birth.  Obviously, this would be a huge implication for the Christians if that had been true.  However, it’s not.  I’ve included a video of Christian philosopher and New Testament historian Dr. William Lane Craig that discusses this specific topic.

I’m not going to take the time to list out the many inaccuracies of Maher’s “Religulous” because I think that would honestly be giving it more credit than it deserves.  For those that are interested in looking more into the credibility of the accusation that Jesus was a mere copy of early pagan gods, I’ll include a link to a book (referenced in the video) that delves into great detail concerning how it is impossible for Jesus to have been the product of pagan gods…

I believe that if you currently have doubts because of this objection, they’ll quickly fade away once you do some research using reliable sources…and not comedian Bill Maher.
