One objection that is still prevalent on the internet and in some atheist circles is the idea that Jesus is just a copy cat god. That His story is just a repeating of ancient god-man myths from history such as Osiris, Mythras, etc.
This mostly comes from an internet film called "Zeitgeist" and this theory has been refuted a number of times by scholars both secular and theistic. A cursory examination of these so called copy cats reveal very little if any resemblance to the account of Jesus of Nazareth.
But, let's assume for a moment that those stories are similar. Does that mean that Jesus is merely a copy of those stories and never existed?
I do not believe this to be the case and there is historical evidence that can demonstrate this as a non sequitur.
Everyone has heard of the ocean liner that couldn't be sunk even by God Himself that hit an iceberg in the North Atlantic in April and sunk with the majority of its passengers dying in the frigid waters. The ship was the RMS Tit... Titan. That's right, the Titan. The Titan was the name of an ocean liner in the fictional novel Futility a.k.a. The Wreck of the Titan. This novel was written in 1890 by Morgan Robertson and the name was changed from Futility after the Titanic sank.
While this is quite an eerie coincidence, what kind of similarities can we find between the Titan and the Titanic?
Now, given this, do we consider the Titanic sinking to be a myth copied from other ancient myths? Certainly not. But why? It's because of the eyewitness accounts and the historical records. We can also go out to the North Atlantic and visit the Titanic's wreck.
As we can clearly see, just because other older myths exist with similarities to Christ, it does not follow that the account of Jesus of Nazareth is itself just another myth copied from older ones. And while this objection will probably continue to resurface, we can refute such claims both from the actual mythical accounts and from the facts that do not follow from the objection.
