Like Mike D. said you take the easy way out with zero evidence. You believe in magic how sad, not much of a freethinker as you claimed. You're afraid of the boogieman. Religion has punked you after all. Go mumble at the ceiling fan and pray away that boogieman if it helps..

Well you can thank a god with no name all you wish, and if you could ever produce evidence of the claim, I also would thank the being for magic. So far, you have yet to produce a single bit of evidence for your fantastical claims.

Pretty much the same comment I could make to most every religious post on this thread, including yours.

Our faith in Christ comes by his revealing himself to those who seek him.
Your faith comes from basic cultural influences. If you were born in India, you'd be a Hindu. If you were born in Saudi Arabia, you'd be a Muslim.
Curious wrote:
Fact is that there was a group of Jews who risked their lifes and their freedom to proclaim the teachings of Our Lord.as stated in the new testament.
Fact is, this is primarily church tradition, not historical fact. Fact is, people do crazy things for their religious beliefs. Joseph Smith died for his religious proclamations - are you a Mormon?
Curious wrote:
Subsequently , historians of the time wrote about Christ and Christianity.
What's so novel about historians mentioning a religion that existed at the time? Historians DON'T corroborate the events in the Bible. There was no empire-wide census that would have caused Mary and Joseph to go to Bethleham. It's made up. There was no edict from Herod to kill babies. It's made up. There was no zombie uprising a la Matthew 27. It's made up.
Curious wrote:
Fact is ,the story of Christ having risen could have been bebunked at any time by the Jewish Authorities or the Romans , by simply going to his grave , taking the body and placed it at the temple , where all could see it.
For one, they wouldn't have cared. Christianity was a small cult. Does your local church take time to debunk any local cults making crazy claims?

Secondly, no, they couldn't have debunked it. One, Jesus would have been buried in a mass grave and couldn't be identified. Two, Christianity wasn't relevant within any time period before Jesus' body would have been unrecognizably decomposed.

I'm not into collecting foreskins like your god, fundieman. Their is evidence that god is gay. Just think all the angels are men, the bible shows they are all men. God wants you to get on your knees. Jesus wants to be surrounded by men. The Gnostic gospel of mark shows Jesus as gay.

There is evidence that King James who commissioned the KJV version of the bible was very gay. You're probably holding it right now (no pun intended). I could go on an on but go ahead and get your freak on. Ted Haggard was gay. Gays are now Christians also. Gays have Christian churches. You can go to a Gay church and walk on the wild side.

Your arrogance is distasteful and shows your age. You expect me to answer a question " how does a single celled organism evolve into a human being, that has the advanced anatomy to produce speech as a form of communication "???? That's like me asking you to explain the whole bible .. Id have to throw a set of "Evolution " encyclopedias at you to fully answer your question .....
The only thing I can answer is that the human brain ( size) is what sets us apart from other animals.You'll have to do your own homework on the defining moment of evolution when that occured.
By the way I would much rather follow a leader than follow a loser ..

<quoted text> As is most stuff after the fact, but that doesn't mean it's not out there. i am still learning and reading different material on Jesus and cultures, religions, just kinda processing and eliminating shyt, there's no question in my mind that Jesus was a real man, or at least based on someone, if one says Jesus is fictional then he must assume all are and we know that's not the case..That's not saying he done what is said of him, but w/out question, he had some insight that is unprecedented unto this day..if not Jesus' words then the writers and he is giving full credit to another....
I have no doubt that some guy or a few guys went around speaking of some new version of God... There were Lot's of Gods during that time and there is no doubt many different ones had guys going around telling folks that their version of God was The Version of God... And is why no mention is made of them during their lives for the most part... Nothing exceptional happened...

The Claims came after a few people started building the following and needed a Hook to keep people coming back for the show and tossing coins in the plates...

If the Miracles claimed had of Actually happened then there would have been a lot of locals writing on walls, tablets, Pots, stones and stuff in every town he stepped foot in and healed a bunch of folks or tossed 1000 fishes from a quart jug...

Others that were written about later in life did not perform such feats and those that had pretty good accomplishments were indeed written of and celebrated during their lives... There are statues, carvings and other artifacts found in the places they performed such deeds and sometimes noted far and wide...

But with Jesus there have been 2000 years of 10's of 1000's of people actively digging in every hole they can find in every place mentioned in biblical script and not a single mention of the fellow has been found during the 30 or so years we are told he went about doing stuff that would have put him on the front tablet of the Jerusalem Times Dispatch...

Those who know the life we have in God and creation through Jesus Christ....!! and those who are fixated on mans ability to what?

Only two paths to choose from! Not many ways to Creation God (Yahweh)..... but one!!!!!

Man is set up to choose!

Choose What?

What does so called "ancient evolution" offer but death! Evolving - cycles of death to a dis-pare of nothingness...... Mans ultimate, full control, power hungry minds manipulating society to slavery... Lust driven desires, fantasy "we will do it our way" What has "our way" done for mankind? Wars, abortion, sexual slavery, dictatorship, death, weapons of mass destruction, political manipulation(mass lying, power hungry, deceptions, puppets controlling puppets, control), Religions (organised ritual...dead, dead), so called peace(you do it my way or else), planet depleted,(leading to mismanaged destruction), corruption upon corruption......

Tell me do you see man in any way getting their act together with solutions? At this stage man is aiming through science to reinvent man to genetic manipulated machines serving a few. Yes this few want's to get rid of the masses so they can form some kind of pure race. They sucked up all the earths wealth leaving 95% of the earth's people eating from the crumbs they have decided is fair. No, no from one dictatorship to the next the pit is dug deeper and deeper, so much dis-pare, so much death! ultimate separation of a Creator God they will never know ! You tell me other wise, prove that man can do it(ah but science) Science has become an religion(let see what science say?)...... Just look at wealth, desperate scramble to be on top of what? The what can only be destruction....

"Destruction" - The breaking down that - which was meant for goodness and life in the first place, through a relationship with the source of Goodness and Life.

But Jesus Christ the "Breath of life" a fulfillment from within, living water from the source of life with no end. North. east, south and west I am centered in His Name. My eyes tear up with delight, i and you are worth His Son crucified!

Actually such a simple decision, be called a "Fool" not seeing the big lie from a life giving Truth.
