Sometimes the obvious answer is obvious for a reason. The old adage of "If it looks like a duck, walks like a duck, quacks like a duck, chances are, it's a duck (and EPE has it up for sale )applies here.
But, you have a right to see it that way.........more power to'ya my friend!!!!!
I can't wait to hear about the other rock'n'roll singer from the '50s out of Memphis who changed popular culture, made movies through the 60s, made a comeback that took him through the 70s until he died in his bathroom. We'll call him "Mirror Elvis":wink:

Because of these and other reasons the whole bit about Christianity borrowing from the pagan religions is not given much credence in scholarly circles. It was popular for a time in the earlier part of the 20th century, but was eventually discredited. It only still plays to the Infidels.org set or to a handful of fringe scholars.
