Similarities between Christianity and Buddhism

Today and tomorrow, February 23 and 24, 2013, my new radio interview with Miguel Conner at Aeon Byte will be available gratis. The easiest way to access it is to go to this page:

In the box with the orange line that says “AEON BYTE” and “Options, ” click on the top link marked “Buddhism’s Relation to Christianity.” You will need QuickTime to listen.

Here’s Miguel’s write-up for the show:

In recent times, the similarities between Buddhism and Christianity has been available to a more progressive society. Unfortunately, an ocean of sensationalism and faulty scholarship overlooks how these two traditions truly relate to one another (and why). We delve into the latest, most sober scholarship in comparative religion to fully grasp how Buddhism and Christianity connect in their origins and theology. And find out how their mythic resonance was corrupted by those seeking power.

Topics Discussed:

–Advice for lay people in deciphering valid from invalid scholarship in the historical field.
–Evidence pointing that western traditions actually influenced eastern ones, specifically Egyptian Mysteries and Syrian Gnosis.
–Archaeological evidence revealing that Asia and Europe have been interacting long before the rise of Christianity (and even Buddhism!).
–The latest scholarship detailing the similarities between Christianity and Buddhism, including how Paul and some Church Fathers knew of Buddhist and Hindu traditions.
–Unveiling the mysteries of the Essenes and Therapeutae.

And much more!
