How much of Christianity is based on myths common to Mediterranean religions of the era?

Asked by Hawaii_Jake (25555 points ) September 8th, 2010

This site provides some enlightening facts and scholarship arguing that most of what is believed about Jesus was common to other religions in the Mediterranean for 1000 years or more. Miracles, God born of a human, and even the idea of salvation were not new.

Why do the ideas of other religions regarded as myths suddenly gain credence when placed in a Christian setting?
