In existographies, Godfrey Higgins (1772-1833) (IQ:175|#268) (RMS:49|155+) (CR:23) was an English lawyer, religious historian, and mythologist, noted for 
Higgins was influential to Alvin Kuhn.
In 2004, Tom Harpur, summarized Higgins education as follows: 
“Higgins, whose father was a ‘gentleman of small, though independent, fortune’, went to Trinity Hall, Cambridge. He had grounding in Greek and Latin and early on wrestled with the works of Euclid, John Locke’s On Understanding, and the writings of Varro, Macrobius, and Cicero. He preferred the philosopher Epictetus to the Greek poets, and he gained familiarity with an impressive range of other possible he turned his attention to the ‘evidence upon which our religion was founded’, and was both shocked and intrigued by what he discovered.”
The following are noted quotes:
“One thing is clear — the mythos of the Hindus, the mythos of the Jews and the mythos of the Greeks are all at bottom the same; and what are called their early histories are not histories of humankind, but are contrivances under the appearance of histories to perpetuate doctrines.”
— Godfrey Higgins (c.1830), Anacalypsis
“I came to a resolution to devote six hours a day to this pursuit for ten years. Instead of six hours daily for ten years, I believe I have, upon the average, applied myself to it for nearly ten hours daily for almost twenty years. In the first ten years of my search I may fairly say, I found nothing which I sought for; in the latter part of the twenty, the quantity of matter has so crowded in upon me, that I scarcely know how to dispose of it.”
— Godfrey Higgins (c.1830), Publication (Ѻ)
“Almost all of the latter part of my life has been spent unlearning the nonsense I learned in my youth.”
— Godfrey Higgins (1833), Anacalypsis, Volume One (pg. x); cited by Tom Harpur (2004) in The Pagan Christ (pg. 200)
“Let me not be called a wicked atheist for seeing the likeness between Brahma and Abraham; for what says the learned Joseph Hager : ‘As the Indian alphabets are all syllabic, and every consonant without a vowel annexed is understood to have an A joined to it, there is no wonder if from Abraham was made Brahma; and thus we see other Persian words in the Sanskrit having an a annexed as deva from div, appa from ab, deuda from deud, etc.’”
— Godfrey Higgins (1833), Anacalypsis, Volume One (pg. 391) 
“One thing is clear—the Mythos of the Hindus, the Mythos of the Jews, and the Mythos of the Greeks, are all, at the bottom, the same; and what are called their early histories are not the histories of man, but are contrivances under the appearance of histories, to perpetuate doctrines, or perhaps the history of certain religious opinions, in a manner understood by those only who had a key to the enigma. Of this we shall see many additional proofs hereafter. The histories of Brahma, of Genesis, and of Troy, cannot properly be called frauds, because they were not originally held out as histories; but as the covers for a secret system. But in later times they were mistaken for history, and lamentable have been the effects of the mistake. The history of Lazarus in the Gospel is not true, but it is not a fraud.”
