Hey HB, don't forget about the Hindu God Krishna (as in Christ or Kristian/Christian), which also was combined with the ancient Egyptian word Karest, which means anointed, he was also a son of God who was crucified for the people. Have you ever seen a picture of Krishna? Look it up on the web. Pretty interesting that the picture that the Hindu created of Krishna, looks exactly like the picture that Micheal Angelo (Michael God's Angel, in Greek the word Angelos means angel) drew of Jesus. Only difference is that, whether it was symbolically or literally, Krishna was estimated to be at least 6000 years before Christ.

Eek
I take it that you did not read through the thread before commenting.

Also, you offer a gross mischaracterization of Krishna (timeline, nature, mission, etc). Try Krishna for a quick overview.


Interstingly, Krishna was apparently quite dark-skinned too:

quote:
The term Krishna in Sanskrit has the literal meaning of "All-Attractive". He is also called "Shyamasundara" what means "blueblack and of great beautifulness".


In depictions, Krishna often appears as a black or dark-skinned figure, for instance in the modern murtis (statues) and pictorial representations of Jagannatha (Krishna as Lord of the World) at Puri. In the same representations, his brother and sister are shown with a distinctly lighter complexion. Early pictorial representations also generally show him as dark or black-skinned. Rajasthani miniature paintings of the 16th century are often of a brown or black-skinned figure. The name is sometimes said to mean bluish black, rather than simply black, in many devotional writings his exact complexion is described to be like 'that of a black/blueish storm cloud'.


Sounds like Krishna was Dravidian or possibly Andamanese (Indian Australoid with possible Madagascarian influence). Smile
