This is actually incorrect, it's based off the Germanic goddess Eoster. The rabbits and eggs were fertility symbols so that part is at least right. Totally wrong goddess though.
This was also a pretty normal thing, Rome itself adopted the pantheons of the cultures it conquered so it makes sense that Christianity would do the same, for example all the saints are old Pagan gods remade slightly.

Christianity didn't do that, Catholicism did that. Christianity began at Pentecost, Catholicism began in Rome with Constantine wondering how to bring more revenue into the empire. Just saying.

In short, the reason Christianity is the dominant religion is because Constantine thought it'd be easier to control people that way.

i dont think revenue is the word you're looking for.....

It's entirely possible Eoster's roots traced back to Ishtar. Just like Christianity took Eoster and adopted it, whatever religion Eoster came from could have gotten her from Ishtar, or the other way around (depending on which came first).

You have to admit that it is pretty suspicious that 'ishtar' and 'eoster' sound so similar.

In Denmark we say påske, so the whole Ishtar-Easter thing may only work in English.

in germany, easter is called ostern, not much similarity left there
the eggs and rabbits come from the fact that in spring it is rabbit mating season and all the birds come back from the south and they also have mating season, which means there are a lot of eggs around

Hmm, an alternate look at the history of man's relationship with gods/government with a focus on a deity that isn't widely known of today? Good enough to post this!

Super long but worth it. This guy's stuff is absolutely bonkers. I recommend watching it with all of your friends except sobriety.

I was hoping someone would post this debunking.
You are a beautiful man.
User avatar #20 to #19 - goll (04/20/2014) [-]
this debunking video in particular or just any debunking of spirit science?
User avatar #21 to #20 - lavitts (04/20/2014) [-]
This one is particularly good because let's face it, episode 12 was a gold mine of lunacy.
The others Marty posts are pretty good too though.
Here's an idea. The next time I drop a SS video, I'll namedrop you so you can get the debunking train rolling! We'll be like Scully and Mulder! I'll be the conspiracy theorist and you can be the reasonably skeptical one!

wrong, everybody know easter is actually hinting towards the true nature of the first pope who was rabbit

It's not about the origins, it's about why we celebrate it now
Same for Christmas, funeral wakes, saying bless you, and almost every phrase you utter unknowingly today.
#10 to #9 - karvarausku (04/19/2014) [-]
**karvarausku rolled image** I actually think there were ways to say bless you before christianity, also same with funerals.
#12 to #10 - habibijan (04/19/2014) [-]
In Danish we say prosit rather than some sort of "bless you". It's Latin and means something along the lines of "may it benefit you" - according to the (Danish) wikipedia, the Odyssey features prosit in some form, so it may be a remnant from the olden days, translated into Latin. So, I suppose there has been an English phrase for it before Christianity as well, one that has just disapeared.

This was disproven so damn hard last year, but it looks like some people still think it's fact anyway. So much for being "skeptics."
