..Christianity. All of it's rituals were copied from earlier pagan and jewish predecessors. Baptism. The Mass. Christmas. Easter. The Old Testament. Even the holiness of Sun Day. All of these came from other religions. Even the apocalyptic message of Jesus as well as his teachings of peace and self-denial were an emulation of the cult of the Essenes which existed before he was even born. How can anyone believe in a religion that is such an obvious generic ripoff of other traditions?
