        The most kino crucifixion imagery is from a Japanese anime.
        And it's definitely not always kino because all the Jesus stuff in man of steel was awful

          This is an exceedingly childish opinion.

          moron, the gospels were all modeled on pagan myths and literature. Everything good in it was written by pagans first.

          That is not true. israelites literally made half that shit up from whole cloth.

      The life of Jesus is actual kinography and deserves to be inserted everywhere. There is not a single piece of art that is not elevated by accurately and sincerely drawing from the Gospels.
      On the other hand, pagan shit is always formulaic, nihilistic, and dead. It's notable that every single use of pagan religion in art could be replaced by Christian influence and instantly make the story better.

        Lmao, both jesus and pagan shit is formulaic and dead. Especially jesus who’s only purpose is to be marketable for christian media because christians are fricking devoid of anything that resembles their own virtues.

          Christianity is the antithesis of nihilism. God created everything, and thus everything is imbued with a deep, innate meaning.

    Isn't the creation myth. The creation myth says that there was chaos then a pair of primordial gods emerged. The pair had a pair of children and so on and then Izanagi and Izanami mated. Their first time mating was done wrong and made the abomination leech god. Then they started doing it right creating the islands and all the other deities until the mother birth the fire god which caused her to die in labor. The father then angry killed the fire god. Other dieties then sprung from the feces released on death, blood spilt and tears of the event.
    Then Izanagi the father went to the underworld to see his dead wife but since she had eaten in the underworld she wasn't allowed to return as well as the husband breaking the promise of not looking at his wife.
    When he returned to the world he needed to remove the taint of the underworld and underwent a purification water cleansing ritual. It was sashing/purifying his two eyes and nose that created the sun Amaterasu moon and storm god Susanoo.
    You got it all wrong.

      Really? Japanese myths have things from Persephone and Orpheus? That's pretty interesting

          It's not as crazy as it sounds. The Japanese borrowed heavily from the Chinese as we all know during the early formation of the Japanese state and that included how to orient themselves in relation to the cosmos, their creation myths and gods and temples etc. The Chinese in turn took in ideas from the trade routes of the Silk Road that passed through the Greco-Bactrian states of Central Asia. It's not completely impossible that a distinctly Greek legend had some influence on the early process of codifying and documenting the disparate ancestor and spirit/kami worship into something recognizably "shinto"

            There's an anthropological theory, started by a Japanese botanist, that a lot of the odd similarities and parallels seen in pagan religions (like Greek, Hindu, Celtic, and even Shinto) stem back from a migratory-period in early human history where we were closely hollowing the growth of oak trees. This unbroken, homogenous, forest habitat provided acorns, and other similar predictable forage, that allowed a consistent "laurel forest culture" to propagate and later disseminate cultural ideas & artifacts across continental Europe, India, and as far east as Japan.

              It's not even entirely a meme since the global distribution of oak trees *does* match/line up well enough with historical distribution/migrations of ancient humans.
