Nobody is automatically dismissing anything. Such claims have no credibility. Do you agree with what Acharya S says about Horus in her book, for example?
-Horus was born of the virgin Isis-Meri on December 25th in a cave/manger with his birth being announced by a star in the East and attended by three wise men.
- His earthly father was named "Seb" ("Joseph".
-He was a royal descendant.
-At the age of 12, he was a child teacher in the Temple, and at 30 he was baptized, having disappeared for 18 years.
-Horus was baptized in the river Eridanus or Iarutana (Jordan) by "Anup the Baptized" ("John the Baptist"), who was decapitated.
-He had 12 disciples, two of whom were his "witnesses" and were named "Anup" and "Aan" (the two "Johns".)
-He performed miracles, exorcised demons and raiosed El-Azarus ("El-Osiris"), from the dead.
-He walked on water.
-His personal epithet was "Iusa", the "ever-becoming son" of "Ptah" the "Father".
-He delivered a "Sermon on The Mount" and his follower reconted the "Sayings of Iusa".
-Horus was transfigured on the Mount.
-He was crucified between two thieves, buried for three days in a tomb, and ressurrected.
-He was also the "Way, the truth, the light" "Messiah" "God's Anointed Son, "Son of Man" the "Good Shepherd" the "Lamb of God" the "Word made flesh" "Word of Truth,"etd.
-He was "the fisher" and was associated with the Fish ("Itchthys") Lamb and Lion.
-He came to fulfill the law.
-Horus was called "the KRST" or "Anointed One".
And the parallels she draws from this to Christ? I personally looked into each of these claims years ago and found them all to be false. I even have a document saved addressing each of them. People like her, the Christ-Mythers just make it up as they go along. It is not about automatically dismissing them, it is that their claims have no basis in fact.
