Jesus is Horus. Satan is of Zoroastrian origin.

The truth will set you free,it's said.

So are the evangelicals truth resistant? Are they the messengers of lies, they themselves warn about?

It seems so.

They call themselves the light of the world, but they despise knowledge and proven truth.

Just remember God needs your money. And money is a god.

I read the idea of Satan as a powerful, evil opponent of God arose through the contact of Judaism with Zoroastrianism during the Babylonian Exile? 

In older myth the opponent of Yahweh was Leviathan and it's speculated that in earlier version of the creation myth Yahweh killed Leviathan during the creation process.

That's right because the adjudication of Lucifer has begun and we're all seeing the spiritual and political squirming going on in the world today as the result. And the UB is provided for us to know about the details of how the Lucifer rebellion has, and still is impacting all our lives.

TBH I find the development of Jewish and (in turn) Christian mythology very fascinating. I've read bits here and there. But I should really look whether there's some serious academic literature about the beginnings and origins of those myths.

Yup, then the Roman occupation expanded on it.

I vaguely remember a passage that infers that Lucifer is the Lord of this World, however I can't remember if I'm just making that up or if it's actually in the a holy book. I'm sure I will be corrected if incorrect. 

Isaiah 14:12 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!, which, as @Piney says, is not a reference to the devil.

No.

And I'll say it now, that the second article is completely stupid and the first is correct.  Mostly.  The "similarity" wasn't made up by atheists.

Thanks. I can't edit it now, so everyone just ignore the second link I posted.
