12 Greek Myths that Prove the Bible is Fake

Greek Mythology versus Christianity

Sorry, Jesus, but ancient Greek myths inspired the writing of the Old and New Testament of the Bible. How do I know this? Because the proof is right here.

Once you see for yourself that the ancient Greek myths have been twisted, and you will, I’m pretty sure you’ll agree with me that the Bible must be fake.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news; however, it’s for your own good to know the truth.

Like Santa Claus, you’re better off knowing the truth unless you’re under the age of 12. The only reason I’m saying this is because Santa is fun, and no one wants to see the end of Santa.

Here’s a bit of a rundown first to give you an idea of what’s going on in Christianity.

The Christian religion is based on a Bible made up of an Old Testament and New Testament. These two Testaments are also made up of many other books (a few pages) filled with stories, philosophies, and instructions.

I assume the main reason for the Bible to be in existence is to give people an idea of God’s ways. In this regard, it has failed miserably.

The differences between the New Testament and the Old Testament

The New Testament is the latest and greatest book, which mainly tells the story of Jesus Christ and his disciples, with a bonus of how loyal followers of Jesus can be saved at the end of time.

All you have to do is follow the guidelines set in the New Testament, and you’ll be saved. That’s the major selling point behind it anyway.

The Old Testament goes back even further before the time of Jesus when they were still doing sacrifices and other bizarre things.

It tells the story of Adam and Eve, Noah and his Ark, plus numerous other stories set in Egypt and the Middle East region of today.

The Old Testament contains a colossal amount of instructions to follow. Christians don’t worry too much about the Old Testament anymore because the New Testament aimed to override all of the other previous instructions set by God in the Old Testament. It’s basically a complete rewrite!

For example, in the Old Testament, it was an eye for an eye if someone had wronged you.

In the New Testament, it’s all about forgiving everyone, no matter what they’ve done to you. On top of that, you’re supposed to forgive them and pray to God for them so that they may also be saved. No sin is too high, and anyone can be forgiven.

This alone would prove that God has a split personality at the very least because both the Old Testament and the New Testament are very different.

Okay, I can understand someone changing their mind about a few things, but this is truly crazy silly.

The Greek Myths in the Bible

Soon you’ll understand how the ancient Greek myths played a part in creating the Bible stories, and for this reason, I’m 100% positive the Bible is fake.

Greek myths are the true source behind many of the tales that Christians believe. If the Bible is based on the Greek myths, then it must be fake. If the Bible is fake, then Jesus Christ must also be fake.

Once you understand how the Christian religion has twisted the Greek myths for its own agenda, you’ll be much more enlightened.

You can then go back to fearing the Greek Gods as they once did back in ancient times.

After reading this, you need to ask yourself why one true God has stories similar to the Greek myths. But opposite in certain ways and attributes.

You may start wondering why anyone on earth would want to oppose the Greek Gods and Goddesses by trying to convince everyone that another God exists? The answer is rather simple, Money and Power, that’s why.

Why didn’t Jesus Christ show up in Athens?

Athens would have been the ideal setting for his teachings and miracles if one God did want to come down to earth.

Philosophers like Aristotle, Socrates, and Plato showed up in Athens, so why not the son of God?

Using men (Apostles) to spread the word doesn’t count if the message was considered important. Yeah, sure, no one would want to stay on earth for that long time if you could go back to paradise. The problem with this is that it shows a lack of care.

Who came first, the Greek Gods or Jesus Christ?

The Greek Gods and Goddesses existed before any other God showed up. Let’s see if Greek Gods Paradise can set the record straight.

Another thing to think about is this. If the Greek Gods and Goddesses never existed, someone must have made them up along with the Greek myths.

Why would anyone want to make them up? It’s the big two again, money and power, that’s why.

The Bible is a psychological head stuffer that attempts to raise itself above Greek mythology. Imitation is often said to be the sincerest form of flattery.

However, in this case, it shows you some of the major corruptions written into the Bible.

What is similar or opposite to the Greek myths in the Bible?

1. Poseidon versus the Devil

Poseidon (Neptune), God of the sea, is associated with water, whereas the devil is associated with fire, the exact opposite.

The God of the sea is often seen carrying around a three-pronged trident. The devil is often depicted carrying a three-pronged pitchfork.

2. Hades versus Hell

Hades is the ruler of the Underworld in Greek mythology. The Underworld also went by the name Hades.

In ancient times, this dark and dingy place is where most souls were thought to descend to after death.

It’s hard to believe, but the belief at the time was that the souls of the dead were ferried to Hades on the River Styx by Charon, the ferryman.

River Styx between Earth and the Underworld

What kind of demented mind would make this kind of stuff up?

In the Christian religion, Satan (the devil) is thought to be Hell’s ruler. Just like the highway to hell metaphor, many souls are thought to be headed there after death.

One of these two has to be a false belief, or are they both false beliefs?

3. The Judgement of Paris versus Adam and Eve 

In Greek mythology, Aphrodite, the Goddess of love, promised Paris the love of the world’s most beautiful woman. All he had to do was give her the legendary golden apple marked ‘to the fairest.’

In the Old Testament of the Bible, Eve gave Adam a sweet apple and convinced him to eat it after a serpent told her it was the right thing to do.

Adam and Eve

Eating fruit from the Tree of Good and Evil was expressly forbidden by God.

After God learned of the truth that Adam and Eve went against his specific instructions, both of them were cast out from their garden like paradise.

From then on, both of them had to fend for themselves.

In both cases, it seems as if an apple had major repercussions in worldly events.

Adam and Eve’s forbidden apple led to the downfall of all, and it was blamed on a woman called Eve.

Like Pandora in Greek mythology, who opened a jar allowing all of the world’s evils to escape, with only hope remaining.

The golden apple from Greek mythology plays a part in the Trojan War myth, which famously lasted for 10 years.

This led to Troy’s downfall, which was also blamed on one particular woman, Helen of Troy.

The Bible had to have a woman as a temptress.

4. Apollo, God of light versus Jesus Christ

Apollo, God of light, crowns someone with a laurel wreath as an honorable gesture.

Jesus Christ was crucified while wearing a crown of thorns. This is what the Romans gave him. God was ok with it because it made him humble.

Crown of Thorns Jesus Christ

Obviously, to be a king, you need a crown of some sort, but this is ridiculous. This is one of the major corruptions in the New Testament Bible.

You see, they were crucifying people around that time. Who was doing it? It was the Romans. To be able to twist everything around the way they did is unfathomable.

5. Dionysus, God of Wine against turning water into wine

Dionysus, the Greek God of wine, showed everyone how to make wine. Basically, he showed people how to grow grapes in the ground and cultivate it before turning it into wine. Sounds like a big miracle to me.

Dionysus Bacchus God of Wine

On the other hand, Jesus Christ decided to turn water into wine for his first big miracle. On top of that, in another miracle, Jesus walked on water to the astonishment of his disciples.

Who do you want to follow, a Greek God who showed everyone how to make wine or a God who could turn water into wine?

The son of God obviously had to show superior winemaking ability to outclass a Greek God, but this is over the top.

6. Hercules versus Samson

This is one of the most incredible coincidences of all time. Strongman stories exist both in Greek mythology and the Bible.

Here we have Hercules slaying the Nemean lion as one of his twelve famous labors.

The problem is that many believe this golden fountain figure found in the Peterhof Palace in Saint Petersburg to be Samson from the Bible.

It’s not, but that’s the problem you get when you have two similar stories because it gets very confusing!

Hercules Fountain Russia

If you want to watch some of the best Hercules movies, then these are the ones to watch.

The figure below is supposed to represent Samson from the Bible, and he’s pretty much doing the same thing with a lion.

Samson Fountain

Samson has one excellent Biblical movie called Samson and Delilah made in 1949. But this is pretty much it unless you want to watch Hercules, Samson and Ulysses (1963).

This is one of those classic Italian Peplum / Sword & Sandal movies that’s a bit of a secret. I like how two heroes from Greek mythology take on a Biblical character.

In my opinion, it’s proof that Samson is a copycat story that tries to conceal the memory of Greek mythology.

The sad part concerning the Samson story is that it is another case where they turn a woman into a betrayer as they often like to do in the Bible.

Delilah couldn’t help herself when she cut off some of Samson’s hair. She knew this was his one weakness after revealing the secret to her, but she did it anyway. This caused him to lose all of his strength.

The Bible doesn’t like birds for some reason. You should never trust a woman, seems to be the message.

7. Orpheus versus Sodom and Gomorrah

Don’t look back is a powerful message in Greek mythology and the Bible.

One of the most tragic Greek myths is that of Orpheus and Eurydice. It tells of Orpheus descending into the underworld to bring back Eurydice with him to the upper world after she had died from a snake bite.

Hades allowed it on one proviso that Orpheus never look back at her until they had both reached the world of light.

Orpheus and Eurydice

Tragically, Orpheus looked back at her during their final steps. They were nearly out of the Underworld, but since he looked back at Eurydice, she was lost forever.

In the Book of Genesis in the Old Testament, Angels told Lot and his wife the same thing, “Don’t look back.”

However, Lot’s wife couldn’t resist the urge to look back when fleeing from the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah. On turning around to watch the destruction taking place, Lot’s wife transformed into a salt pillar and was lost forever.

Sodom and Gomorrah

My take on this is that if any superior being told you not to look back, whatever you do for Greek God’s sake, make sure you don’t look back!

8. Atlas versus Flat Earth Belief

Atlas was condemned by Zeus to hold up the sky on his shoulders in Greek mythology.

The Titan Atlas is usually depicted with the round earth on his shoulders as a solid reminder of this incredible Greek myth.

Atlas holding up the world Greek Myth

Bible believers, on the other hand, believed that the world was actually flat, even hundreds of years after the arrival of their savior Jesus Christ.

To stop the truth from spreading that the world was indeed spherical, the Catholic Church condemned Galileo, the famous astronomer, to prison. So much for wanting to know about the truth.

9. Athena (Athens) versus Jesus (Jerusalem)

Athena, the Goddess of wisdom, showed up in Athens. This is how the name Athens came about. For the capital of Greece to be named after a Greek Goddess says a lot.

Old Temple of Athena in Athens Greece

There was a contest between Athens and Poseidon to see who the city should favor the most.

Athena gave the people the olive tree as a gift.

Poseidon used his trident to strike open a rock face to give the people a freshwater spring. Athena’s gift was considered to be the best of the two. For winning the hearts and minds of the people, she was honored by having the city named after her.

Jerusalem’s most holy spot is where the Dome of the Rock is situated on the Temple Mount in the Old City. This is an Islamic shrine, and you have to wonder whether Jesus Christ would be happy about that.

You can read about my trip to Israel and Jerusalem in 2000 in another post of mine. It was a real eye-opener. When I was allowed to enter inside the Dome of the Rock with the golden roof, that was a big highlight. It’s a beautiful building.

Jerusalem Dome of the Rock

Jerusalem is holy to Muslims, Christians, and Jews. They have been arguing about it for centuries. No one knows who is right, but it is safe to say that at least two out of three of them are wrong.

10. Aphrodite, Goddess of Love versus Madonna

No, I’m not talking about Madonna, the music singer with the hit song Like a Virgin. A Madonna is actually a representation of Mary, either by herself or with her child Jesus.

Venus and Cupid are the targets with this Biblical story.

11. The Twelve Olympians versus Twelve Apostles

The simplest way to get rid of the Twelve Gods of Olympus was to replace them.

Twelve average men, known as disciples of Christ, also known as Apostles, would do the trick.

One thing this confirms to me is that God didn’t have much faith in females at the time. It’s the same as today with all of the Catholic male priests.

12. Hermes, God of Travel versus Travelling Apostles

Hermes used to send messages for Zeus, king of the Gods.

Christians don’t believe in Pagan Gods, and they will bag anyone that does. What they do believe is that one almighty God appointed the Apostles to spread the message of salvation.

Why would only one true God want men to spread his message when you can come down to earth anytime you want and do it yourself. This Christian God is a bit of a slacker when you think about it.

Now over to you. Do you think the Greek myths prove that the Bible is truly fake?
