It turns out that Jesus isn't all that special in terms of resurrection.
I've been seeing a lot of pseudoapologetics recently that assert that Christianity is the one true religion because Jesus is the only god who rose from the dead.
Yeah, not so much.
At least 6 other gods died and were resurrected prior to Jesus:
Horus c. 3000 BCE
Osiris c. 3000 BCE
Attis of Phrygia c.1400 BCE
Krishna c. 1400 BCE (possibly as early as 5771 BCE)
Mithra of Persia c. 600 BCE
Dionysus c. 186 BCE
Apparently, humanity demands a sacrifice. A long line of sacrifices.
