    Does the bible mentioned Osiris?

    Not by name but known in the Old Testament as the Golden Calf.

    The Golden Calf is a ploy to discredit indigenous religions in Africa, Asia and more importantly Europe.

    Osiris is not the Golden Calf, but could be one of my many traditional Dieties that would fall victim to Bible bashing as a result of the Golden Calf story.

    The Egyptians used animals as symbolic means to express religious concepts. The Egyptians did not take it literaly but those desiring to defame them said so. You are correct in your statement. I just wanted to show that some of Moses followers were with Aton (sun) and others had Osiris not knowing Osiris was the son if fire/sun. But on the other hand Moses did claim he saw god symbolicly as a fire in the burning bush
