Paganism and Bible

I have spent a good deal of time researching the connection between paganism and the Bible and there is a massive amount of plagiarized themes that are in the bible from older Assryo-Babylonian religions as well as Greek and Egyptian.

This includes most of the major characters, Moses - Bacchus, Jesus- Mithras just as a few examples.

From a historical perspective Jesus also fails to meet the litmus test.

Jospheus Antiquities mention of Jesus was latter admitted by Christians to be a forged entry and Pliny the Younger is a more reputable entry however it does date the appearance of Jesus much later and coincides with Luke writing of the Synoptic Gospels.

If the real question of all these debates is “Does God Exist”? I always come back to “What evidence is there”? and the answer I always hear is you must have faith.

I have been taught that faith without fact is ignorance.
