Trinity and Paganism
"Anyone who can worship a trinity and insist that his religion is a monotheism can believe anything." -- Robert A. Heinlein

Trinity Definition: Within the nature of the One True God, there simultaneously exists three eternal Persons, namely, God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. All three Persons are co-equals in all the attributes of the Divine Nature.

"AD 200 Noetus had been expelled from the Smyrnaean church for teaching that Christ was the Father, and that the Father himself was born, and suffered, and died." [A History of the Christian Church 2nd Ed. 1985 Williston Walker]

This definition defines God, not as a family, but as a committee. But how did this doctrine come to exist in modern Christianity? In the preface to Edward Gibbon's History of Christianity, it reads:
If Paganism was conquered by Christianity, it is equally true that Christianity was corrupted by Paganism. The pure Deism of the first Christians … was changed, by the Church of Rome, into the incomprehensible dogma of the Trinity. Many of the pagan tenets, invented by the Egyptians and idealized by Plato, were retained as being worthy of belief.

All Pagan religions from the time of Babylon have adopted in one form or another a Trinity doctrine or a triad or trinity of gods. In Babylon it was Nimrod, Semiramas, and Tammuz. In Egypt it was Osiris, Isis, and Horus. Within Israel paganism it was Kether, Hokhmah, and Binah. In Plato's philosophy it was the Unknown Father, Nous/Logos, and the world soul. In the book, A Statement of Reasons, Andrews Norton says of the Trinity:
We can trace the history of this doctrine, and discover its source, not in the Christian revelation, but in the Platonic philosophy. The Trinity is not a doctrine of Christ and his Apostles, but a fiction of the school of the later Platonists. There is no evidence the Apostles of Jesus ever heard of a Trinity.

"...scholars generally agree that there is no doctrine of the trinity as such in either the Old Testament or the New Testament." [The HarperCollins Encyclopedia of Catholicism 1995]

The Trinity developed as it is now in Christianity, in the tenth century before Christ. The Indians believe that their Trinity consists of Brahma, Fishna, and Seva,  and these three are one. Mentioned in the pious Atnis prayers, “oh, three gods know that I believe in one god. Tell me, which of you is the real god, to pray for and present my vow? Then the three gods appeared and said to him: you, the worshipper, know that there is no difference between us, the three you see is in the shape and the sameness, but there is only one divine person in the three”. Found in Indian remains, was an idol with three heads and one body, indicating the Trinity. 

"Christianity derived from Judaism and Judaism was strictly Unitarian (believing in one God). The road which led from Jerusalem to Nicea was scarcely a straight one. Fourth century trinitarianism did not reflect accurately early Christian teaching regarding the nature of God; it was, on the contrary, a deviation from this teaching." [The Encyclopedia Americana 1956]

Greek philosophy spread through Alexandria, where Plato the Alexandrian was (207C.E). He believed in the treble (God, mind, spirit). Thus, the Alexandrian saints were the first to believe in the Trinity and defend it. Among them, the archeologist Garslafe Creny, in his book “Ancient Egyptian Religion”, he said, “The Trinity was added to the real Christianity, and it was taken from the pagan Pharaohs’ belief”.

"The trinity of God is defined by the church as the belief that in God are three persons who subsist in one nature. The belief as so defined was reached only in the 4th and 5th centuries AD and hence is not explicitly and formally a biblical belief." [Dictionary of The Bible 1995 John L. Mckenzie]
The authors of the book, “The Myth of God’s Incarnation”, mentioned the same; “The belief that Jesus is God, the son of God, or God incarnated in him, is no more than pagan myth and legend.”[1]
In his book, “Christian Paganism” the prominent scholar Robertson talked in detail about Christian adoption of paganism. He said, “It is a pleasure to say, that among those who criticized my book, no one disagreed with the facts that I mentioned in it, and this convinced me that most Christian beliefs are taken from paganism.”  
The trinity was invented mainly after 3 years of Jesus departed from earth. The Coucil of Nicaea publicly accepted and announced Jesus as God or part of Trinity in 325.
"The decisions of Nicea were really the work of a minority, and they were misunderstood and disliked by many" [Documents of the Christian Church 2nd Ed 1963 Henery Bettenson]

Making God a man and man a god was invented in Babylon. This idolatry and false belief has been carried into pagan religions, and it has worked its way into Christianity as the doctrine of the trinity.
"Nimrod, the first of the great Babylonian rulers, was also declared to be the first of the man-gods." [Ravaged By The New Age 1996 Texe Marrs]
"He was worshipped in Babylon under the name of El-Bar, or 'God the Son'." [The Two Babylons 1916 Rev. Alexander Hislop]

Below are some pictures and idols of ancient Pagan trinity.
