12 Greek Myths that Prove the Bible is Fake

Greek Mythology versus Christianity
3 Shares

Sorry, Jesus, but ancient Greek myths were the inspiration behind the stories in the Bible’s New Testament and Old Testament.

How do I know this? Because the proof is right here.

Once you see that the ancient Greek myths have been deviously 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, but knowing the truth will allow you to see through the lies, which is necessary for growth.

It is the same as believing in Santa Claus. You’re much better off knowing the truth unless you’re under 12. Don’t kid yourself.

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 to give you an idea of what’s happening in Christianity.

The Christian religion bases itself on a Bible made up of a New Testament and an Old Testament.

Furthermore, these two Testaments contain a collection of many other books and letters (some only a few pages long) filled with tragic stories, philosophies, and instructions.

I assume one of the big reasons for the Bible to exist is to give people an idea of God’s ways. Unfortunately, in this regard, it has failed miserably.

New Testament and Old Testament Differences

The New Testament is the latest and greatest book, which focuses on telling the story of Jesus Christ and his disciples via the gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John.

One of the most mysterious books, the “Book of Revelation,” also known as the “Apocalypse of John,” is also found in the New Testament.

The Book of Revelation tells loyal followers of Jesus Christ of God’s plan to save them at the end of time. It also discusses the dreaded 666 number of the beast.

If you want your soul saved, and who doesn’t, the best chance given by writers (inspired by the God of the Bible) is to follow the guidelines set in the Bible’s New Testament.

It happens to be the top selling point behind the Christian Bible anyway.

Old Testament Bible

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, and numerous other stories set in Egypt and the Middle East.

The Old Testament also contains a colossal amount of instructions to follow.

Christians don’t worry too much about the Old Testament anymore because the New Testament did an excellent job of overriding all of the other previous instructions set by God in the Old Testament.

It’s pretty much 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 about forgiving everyone, no matter what they’ve done to you.

Now you’re supposed to forgive people and pray to God for them so that God can save their eternal souls. No sin is too high!

It offers lots of hope because anyone can be forgiven and saved provided they have faith in Jesus Christ.

If this were true in any way, then this alone would prove that God has a split personality at the very least because the Old Testament and the New Testament are very different.

I understand someone changing their mind about a few things, but this is crazy silly stuff!

Greek Myths in the Bible

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

Greek myths are the true source behind many of the tales that Christians believe.

The Bible must be fake if it has stolen stories from Greek mythology.

Therefore, if I prove the Bible is fake, Jesus Christ must also be FAKE.

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

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

After you become aware of what is going on, you need to ask yourself why one true God would want to have stories similar to the Greek myths but opposite in specific ways and attributes.

You will probably wonder 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 relatively simple, Money and Power, that’s why.

Why didn’t Jesus Christ show up in Athens?

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

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

Using men (Apostles) to spread the word doesn’t count if the message was considered so important.

I can understand why no one would want to stay on earth for that long when you could go back to paradise. However, the biggest problem with rushing things is the lack of care.

Who came first, the Greek Gods or Jesus Christ?

The Greek Gods and Goddesses existed before any other God showed up, so 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 in reality, 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, here it clearly shows the significant corruption made possible by the Bible.

Similar and 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 often appears carrying a three-pronged trident.

Neptune with trident statue

The devil (aka Satan) also happens to carry a three-pronged pitchfork. What a coincidence!

2. Hades versus Hell

Hades is the ruler of the Underworld in Greek mythology. Interestingly, the Underworld also goes by the name Hades.

In ancient times, Romans and Greeks believed this dark and dingy place was the realm where most souls descended at the time of death.

It is hard to believe now, but the belief at that particular time in history 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 Greek mind would make this kind of weird stuff up?

Satan (the devil) is the ruler of Hell in the Christian religion.

Like the Highway to Hell metaphor, Christians believe that many souls will go there after death.

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

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.’

Judgement of Paris Painting

In the Old Testament of the Bible, Eve gave Adam a sweet red 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 had learned that Adam and Eve went against his specific instructions, they were cast out of paradise. From then on, Adam and Eve had to fend for themselves.

In Greek mythology and the Bible, it seems like an apple had significant repercussions on worldly events.

Adam and Eve’s forbidden apple led to the downfall of all. But, guess what, the blame predominately went to the woman Eve for tempting Adam with a bite of the apple.

It is similar to Pandora from Greek mythology, who opened a jar allowing all of the world’s evils to escape, with only hope remaining inside.

The golden apple of discord from Greek mythology initiated the Trojan War, which famously lasted for ten years. It led to Troy’s downfall.

Most of the blame for the war went to one particular woman, Helen of Troy.

You can see why the Bible wanted a woman to blame, part temptress and an apple lover.

4. Apollo, God of light, versus Jesus Christ

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

Crowned by Apollo Painting

Jesus Christ was crucified while wearing a crown of thorns, which the Romans gave him.

God was ok with it because it made him humble.

Crown of Thorns Jesus Christ

To be a king, you probably need a crown of some kind, but this is ridiculous.

It is one of the major corruptions of the New Testament Bible.

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

5. Dionysus, Wine God, vs. turning water into wine

Dionysus, the Greek God of wine, showed everyone how to make wine.

He showed people how to grow grapes in the ground and cultivate them before turning them into wine. It sounds like a pretty 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 had to show superior winemaking ability to outclass a Greek God, but this is over the top.

6. Hercules versus Samson

Having Hercules in Greek mythology and Samson in the Bible is one of the most incredible coincidences ever.

That means powerful strongman stories exist in Greek mythology and the Bible.

Below 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.

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

If you want to learn more about Hercules, or Herakles, as he’s known to the Greeks, watch a few of the entertaining films in this list of the best Hercules movies.

The figure below is supposed to represent Samson from the Bible. You can see he’s doing the same thing with the lion’s jaw.

Samson Fountain

Samson did inspire the creation of one excellent Biblical movie, Samson and Delilah, in 1949.

But that’s pretty much it unless you watch Hercules, Samson and Ulysses (1963).

This film is one of those classic Italian Peplum / Sword & Sandal movies, which is a bit of a secret.

It is great how two heroes from Greek mythology take on a Biblical character.

I believe this is proof enough that Samson is a copycat story that tries to conceal the memory of Greek mythology.

The Samson and Delilah Tragedy

The saddest part about the Samson story is that it’s another case where they turn the woman into a betrayer, as they often enjoy doing in the Bible.

Delilah couldn’t resist cutting off some of Samson’s hair. She knew this was his one weakness after he revealed the secret of his strength to her, but she still cut it anyway.

Unfortunately, her action caused Samson to lose all of his strength.

Bible writers don’t like birds for some reason. Unfortunately, strong messages in the Bible always seem to veer on the side that you should never trust a woman.

Hercules, on the other hand, went on to gain immortality.

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 his wife Eurydice to the upper world after she had passed away from a snake bite.

Hades allowed it on one proviso that Orpheus would 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 on the way out. They were almost 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 strong urge to look back when fleeing from the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah.

On turning around, she witnessed the destruction taking place. As a result, Lot’s wife turned into a salt pillar and was lost forever.

Sodom and Gomorrah

My take on this is that if any superior being ever tells 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

In Greek mythology, Zeus condemned Atlas to hold the sky on his shoulders.

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

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

The Catholic Church condemned Galileo, the famous astronomer, to prison to stop the truth from spreading that the world was indeed spherical.

So much for wanting to know about the truth.

9. Athena (Athens) versus Jesus (Jerusalem)

Athena, the Goddess of wisdom, showed up in Athens, which is how the name Athens came about.

Old Temple of Athena in Athens Greece

 
It all began with a contest between Athena, Goddess of wisdom, and Poseidon, God of the sea.

Athena gifted the people an olive tree, while Poseidon decided to use his trident to strike open a rock face to provide the people with a freshwater spring.

Athena’s gift became the best gift of the two. Since Athena won the hearts and minds of the people, the city gave its name to her.

The holiest spot in Jerusalem is where the Dome of the Rock sits on the Temple Mount in the Old City.

Today, it is an Islamic shrine, and you have to wonder whether Jesus Christ or any true God would be happy about being second-rate.

I have been inside the beautiful building. You can read about my trip to Israel and Jerusalem in 2000, if you are interested.

Going inside the Dome of the Rock, the building with the golden roof, was a big highlight of mine.

Jerusalem Dome of the Rock

 
Jerusalem is holy to Muslims, Christians, and Jews.

They’ve been arguing about it for centuries. Of course, no one can be sure who is correct, but it’s safe to say that at least two out of the three religions are wrong.

10. Aphrodite, Goddess of Love versus Madonna

I’m not talking about Madonna, the famous singer with the hit song Like a Virgin.

Madonna represents Mary, either by herself or with her child Jesus.

Venus and Cupid are the targets of this Biblical story.

11. The Twelve Olympians versus Twelve Apostles

The simplest way to eliminate the twelve Gods of Olympus was to replace them.

Twelve Olympians versus Twelve Apostles of Jesus Christ

Twelve average men, the twelve Apostles (disciples of Christ), would do the trick.

One thing this confirms to me is that God didn’t have much faith in females at the time.

It is the same as today with all of the male Catholic priests.

12. Hermes, God of Travel versus Travelling Apostles

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

Christians no longer believe in Pagan Gods, and they’ll bag anyone who does.

They believe that one almighty God appointed the Apostles to spread the message of salvation to the world.

Why would one true God want men to spread a critical message when you can come down to earth anytime you want and do it yourself?

The Christian God seems to be a bit of a slacker when you think about it.

What do you believe?

I wonder what you think. Do you agree that Greek myths prove the Bible is fake?
