I'm on a Quest of biblical proportions! (pun intended)

I've spent the last two days scouring the web for cold hard facts about the origins of christianity and how it basically stole most of its symbolism and myths from previous pagan religions.

I've found several sources but they are either biased and laden with agenda, or simply not cited. And while they basically agree, that doesn't make it fact.

There must be some resources out there that are backed by historical findings, that show definitively the origins of christianity and other religions and how they borrow and steal from each other. I know that during the Dark Ages massive amounts of information was lost and a lot of pagan information predating christianity was never oral and never really written down. But something must have survived besides rumors and conjecture.

Am I on a fool's quest? Well, I'll keep looking and searching. I'm open to help, too. If you have anything you'd like to share, please do so. You can contact me here at Atheist Nexus or email me at believersanonymous@gmail.com. I'd be so grateful for some direction or information.

Actually, I watched part of it. I was having trouble with the streaming version so I only saw about 5 minutes of it. Do you recommend it?

This might be helpful. I haven't had a chance to read it all but it looks like it might be legitimate.
