There are no deities EXACTLY like Christ. That is just an unsubstantiated rumor popular among uneducated bloggers who haven't really studied their history.
Here are a few responses to the many claims that Christ is a copy-cat of other deities:
When we examine Isis as Horus' mother, we are told Isis was not a virgin, but the widow of Osiris.
Isis practices magic to raise Osiris from the dead so she can bear a son that would avenge his death. Isis then becomes pregnant from the sperm of her deceased husband. Again, no virgin birth occurs: "[Isis] made to rise up the helpless members [penis] of him whose heart was at rest, she drew from him his essence [sperm], and she made therefrom an heir [Horus]." Horus is never said to have been crucified, nevertheless to have died. Horus' birth was actually celebrated during the month of Khoiak (October/November). Though some critics claim Horus was born during the winter solstice, this shows more of a relationship to other pagan religions which considered the solstices sacred.

UPDATE: Josephus Flavius, a Jewish historian, recounts in the Antiquities of the Jews the fact that Christ did exist:
” Now there was about this time Jesus, a wise man, if it be lawful to call him a man; for he was a doer of wonderful works, a teacher of such men as receive the truth with pleasure. He drew over to him both many of the Jews and many of the Gentiles. He was [the] Christ. And when Pilate, at the suggestion of the principal men amongst us, had condemned him to the cross, those that loved him at the first did not forsake him; for he appeared to them alive again the third day; as the divine prophets had foretold these and ten thousand other wonderful things concerning him. ”
UPDATE 2: Sorry Wayne, there is no reason to doubt the authenticity of Josephus' recount on Christ. The only ones who do it just hate Christianity and want it to go away. Sorry, the text is authentic, regardless of how much you hate it and wish it hadn't been written. The only ”historians” who deny its authenticity are those bloggers who just have something personal against Christianity.
Josephus also confirms the existence of John the Baptist:
” Now some of the Jews thought that the destruction of Herod's army came from God, and that very justly, as a punishment of what he did against John, that was called the Baptist: for Herod slew him, who was a good man... Herod, who feared lest the great influence John had over the people might put it into his power and inclination to raise a rebellion... Accordingly he was sent a prisoner, out of Herod's suspicious temper, to Macherus, the castle I before mentioned, and was there put to death.”
and that of James, Christ's ”brother”;
” And now Caesar, upon hearing the death of Festus, sent Albinus into Judea, as procurator. But the king deprived Joseph of the high priesthood, and bestowed the succession to that dignity on the son of Ananus, who was also himself called Ananus... Festus was now dead, and Albinus was but upon the road; so he assembled the sanhedrin of judges, and brought before them the brother of Jesus, who was called Christ, whose name was James, and some others; and when he had formed an accusation against them as breakers of the law, he delivered them to be stoned. ”
These are just forgeries, no ? Sure, if something supports a Christian claim then it HAS TO be a forgery. I like your logic.
And by the way, I tried to learn more about Sakia...but couldn't find anything on the Internet. Maybe because YOUR story is a forgery ?
UPDATE3: Sorry Wayne, your Sakia character has nothing to do with Christ. I have provided with irrefutable evidence that there are no major similarities between Christianity and other religions and try as you may, you won't be able to change the fact that Christianity is as original as a religion can be. You just have something personal against Christianity, but don't worry, people who have STUDIED their history (not the impressions of a would-be historian) know the truth. All your claims are baseless and illogical. I'm supposed to believe just like that that Judeo-Christians stole the Sakia character from a culture that is half the world away, in India ? Spartacus is more similar to Christ than Sakia is. I could start passing off this theory as a fact and you won't contradict me by saying that Sakia is the one who Christians copied, not Spartacus, because you don't care about the truth: you just want to make Christianity go away regardless of what the truth is. So, Christianity copied 15th other religions yet NO ONE accused Christians of religious plagiarism until now. Right !
