"The use of the astrological zodiac in the Bible has been well established,
and without much question, the twelve zodiacal gods have come down to us as
the twelve apostles. The shepherd's crook used by the Egyptians' Osiris was
used for the bishops' and popes' crozier. They transformed his ankh, the
phallic sign of life, into the Christian cross, and they copied the high-
pointed headdress of Osiris as their prototype for Saint Peter's papal tiara.
There could only be four gospels written. The reason there are only four
biblical gospels was because Saint Jerome believed in the four cardinal gods
of the zodiac. But who was father of the four "cardinal" gods of the zodiac?
Yes, indeed! It was the divine Egyptian son Horus, whose birthday was on the
25th of December long before there was a biblical Jesus."
[Dr. Wally F. Dean, "The Mania of Religion", 1995, p. 106]
