Mitra Persian Sun Goddess – Modern Mitraic Art

Christianity is based on Persian Philosophy of Mitraism!

Hard to believe you say? Well, read the below document and judge for yourselves! Below are not opinions but they are facts, actually they are historical documented facts.

The complete philosophy, doctrine and base for Christianity have been borrowed from the ancient Persian Philosophy of Mitraism (Mithraism). According to Persian Mythology, Goddess Anahita is the Immaculate Virgin Mother of Goddess Mitra. Christians practically borrowed their doctrine and Holy Scriptures from the Ancient Persian Mythology. Christian Church and scholars only changed the Divine Persian names to Christian names! They named "Anahita" as their Virgin Mary and they named "Mitra" as their Jesus Christ! The bases for the Christian Doctrine and writings in many versions of Bible, written by Christian Scholars and Saints have been practically borrowed (Stolen) material from the Persian Mythology and Mitraism! This is documented history. So, basically Christianity stole its doctrine from the Persians. Later on, Muhammad (Islam) stole his complete doctrine from bits and pieces of Torah (Jewish Holy Book) and Bible (Christian Holy Book)! For instance, various prayers, fasting, Allowed and Forbidden foods, scriptures, holy events, biblical history and other documents in Islam were all stolen from Judaism and Christianity. Now if you search for all the roots of everything, even mono thesis, it comes from Persian Doctrines of Mitraism, Vedaism and Zoroastrianism. It all goes back to the Persian Philosophies! Why do majority of public not know all these facts? Because the public has no clue about history. They do not even know what they had for supper a few nights ago, set aside history! Yes, my friends, it all goes back to the Persian Philosophies!


Mitra Persian Sun Goddess Shines Upon Earth

To comprehend Mitra and Mitraism, you must comprehend that Mitra is a Bi Gender Goddess. Mitra is both woman and man. Mitra originated in Iran and the Iranian Mitra was more feminine and more of a woman. Later on, when Mitra and Mitraism spread to India, Greece, Rome and other places, Mitra had become more masculine and more of a man, yet in nature, Mitra has always been a Bi Gender Goddess both woman and a man. The Iranian Mitra was specifically a woman but with characteristics of a man, more like a Tomboy. Mitra being a Bi Gender Goddess is the reason that Mitra’s images or statues are sometimes portrayed as a woman (Persian Mitra) and sometimes portrayed as a man (Roman Mitra) but the original Mitra was Persian; therefore, she was more of a woman. Have in mind that the Ancient Persian Empire was very advanced and sophisticated. Issues such as gender bigotry, sexism, racism and slavery did not exist in the Pre-Islamic Iran. All of these issues had entered Iran with Islam!

Iranians did not have the present moral taboos! In Iranian society, had existed: Male, Female, Both Female and Male (Bi Gender), Neither Female nor Male (Neuter), Gay, Lesbian, Transgender, Transvestite and various other types of Gender Identities.

Iranian Gods and Goddesses were a representation of the Non-Gender Bias Iranian Society. There was no Gender Discrimination in Iran. Iranians were free of Gender issues; furthermore, Iranians believed in endless variety of Gender Forms. Women were the most valuable in the Iranian society. We even had Feminist Goddesses such as Allatum a female masculine Goddess. Ancient Iranian society did not see the gender issue as Black and White, Male or Female!

There existed Evolution of Gods and Devolution of Gender in the Ancient Persian Empire; therefore, Gods and Goddesses were also Devolutionized in Gender, for instance, as I stated, we had:

Persian Gods and Goddesses

Male Masculine Gods (Ahreeman the God of Evil)
Female Feminine Goddesses (Anahita the Goddess of Fertility)
Bi Gender Goddesses (Mitra the Sun Goddess)
Neuter Gods (Zurvan the God of Infinite Time and Space)
Male Feminine Gods (Indira the Aryan God of Thunder and Storm)
Female Masculine Goddesses (Allatum the Goddess of Underworld)

etc.


Mitra the Hellenic Sun Goddess Carving 2 AD, Rome – Greek Version
Greek Mitra has more feminine features

According to the Mitraic Doctrine, Mitra the Sun Goddess died on December 22nd and then was born on December 25th. This event was based on an astronomical fact which back then was observed from the Earth that the sun actually dies for three days on December 22nd, the winter solstice, when it stops in its movement south, to be born again or in other words resurrected on the December 25th, which it resumes its movement north. Of course, all of you are well aware that according to the Christianity, baby Jesus was also born on the December 25th!


Mitra Persian Sun Goddess Artifact – Greek Version

Originally, the Persian Pine Tree was not a local vegetation of the Iranian Plateau, yet it was brought from abroad to Iran and planted around Iran. Persian Pine Tree (Kaj-e Irani) being a rare tree was selected by the Mitraist (Mithraist) priests as the noble gift of the season for the gift bearers to be brought to the Mitraic Temples to honor Mitra the Ancient Persian Sun Goddess. The Persian Pine Trees were displayed in the vicinity of the original Mitraic Temples as gifts in the honor of Mitra. This was a tradition during the Season for the birth of Mitra (December).

Pine Trees were given as gifts to Mitra and were planted around Mitraeums

Later on, the tradition continued and it became customary for the various foreign or domestic diplomatic delegations to bring Persian Pines along with other valuable presents as gifts to the Persian Shahanshahs (Emperors). Various delegations from the four corners of the Persian Empire, from the Chinese border all the way to Africa and from the India all the way to Europe, included the Persian Pines along with their most valuable presents as gifts brought to the Persian Shahanshahs.

On The stairways of the Apadana Palace of Darius the Great in Persepolis, Gift-bearing delegations are carved clearly carrying the Persian Pines. Eventually the Persian Pine Tree precious to the Mitraists were borrowed by the Christian Saints and Authors and become the Christmas Tree! They invented the myth that Jesus was born under a snow-covered Pine Tree!


Persian Pine Tree Wall Carving, Apadana Palace Stairway, Persepolis, Iran
Delegations from four corners of the Persian Empire were bringing gifts including precious Pine Trees when visiting the Persian Shahanshah (Emperor) in Persepolis.

Mitra the Persian Sun Goddess originally had 12 followers which were the 12 months of the year and the signs of the Zodiac. Mitra had to pass these 12 months every year. Astronomically this was based on the fact that the Sun has to pass through 12 months of the year and in fact one year (12 months) is a full circle of Earth on its orbit around the Sun. As you know, Jesus also had 12 followers and close disciples!

Mitra is shown in art works and statue forms wearing a Corona (Crown of Thorns) and a Halo. Jesus also wears a crown of thorns put on him by the Romans and surely there’s always a halo around his head! Does this ring a bell?!

Merry Mitra! Pine Tree was a Precious Mitraic Gift

Mitra walked on the water of oceans, lakes and rivers simply because from the Earth, Mitraists observed that the Sun seems like it is walking on the water; therefore, it become a Mitraist expression that Mitra walks on the water. Of course, you are well aware that who else walked on the water, don’t you? Yes, Jesus indeed!

It was a fundamental factor of the Mitraic Doctrine that Mitra was crucified, then resurrected and ascended to heavens. This was based on astronomical events which in fact Sun passes through the equinoxes (Crucified) such as the Vernal Equinox being Easter when she then revives (Resurrected); next, the Sun ascended into heaven during the spring equinox when it is the Passover and the time in which the sun crosses the equator, making night and day of the equal length. Do you know who else was crucified, then resurrected and ascended to heavens? You guessed it: Jesus!

Mitraism was originated in Iran and practiced in Iran thousands of years before the birth of Christ and then glorified during the Arsacid Parthian Dynasty (250 BC - 224 AD) of Iran hundreds of years before the birth of Christ. Eventually Mitraism moved and spread from Iran to India, Greece, Rome and other places. Mitraism had spread through Europe and Rome a bit before the birth of Christ and become very popular as a major religion from 1st Century AD to 4th Century AD.

Above events in Mitraism had occurred hundreds and thousands of years before the birth of Christ! The timeline of Mitraism and Mitraic events were hundreds and thousands of years before the birth of Christ!

Christianity is a bit over 2000 years old.
Mitraism is over 4000 years old.
So again, I ask you, who copied who?

So, what are the above events? Coincidences or thieveries? The whole Bible is copy/pasted!

Does direct copy/pasting of the Persian Philosophy of Mitraism sounds familiar?
Christianity is not a religion, yet it is a storybook made for children and naïve adults. Even this storybook is not an original, yet a fake one, copied from the Persian Philosophy of Mitraism!

Christianity is not even plagiarized but it is a cheap copy/paste version of Mitraism!
