    Are there any current religions, except Christianity, based on a deification of a human? Ancient Romans and Greeks did it, so I presume Christians got the idea from them.

    I suppose Buddha might fall under that heading

    Krishna was the incarnation of Vishnu.
    He may have been the source for Jesus, the incarnation of God. The Hindu trinity was Brahma, Vishnu, Shiva.

    You can find just about anything on the internet. Does this help...

    All that belongs to human understanding, in this deep ignorance and obscurity, is to be skeptical, or at least cautious; and not to admit of any hypothesis, whatsoever; much less, of any which is supported by no appearance of probability...Hume

    I was very surprised. I did not realize deification was and still is so widespread.

    No question that David Icke is the Son of God.

    Has his own forum. Reveals all about the British monarchy being shape shifting reptilians, which was proved a couple of weeks ago when Prince Philip's car was hit and rolled over and over. The 97 year old just walked away.
