Me and most of the world. Face it, for whatever reason you don't take a lot of people's word for this. I don't view the human race as being liars. The fact is most Atheist are forced into being atheist in China, The Russian Federation, and North Korea. It is very weird that you would claim you have no belief and yet talk about it so often. Let's keep it real, you do have a belief. Many atheist don't but you do. I even think you have more belief in The Christian God than I do.

I have knowledge , and can inspire my christian brothers to charge in the face of the enemy.
They believe they can go to heaven.

I do not,

but I know their inspiration, is as powerful as the atom bomb.

It is a war of wills, and I will win.
It's mind over matter.
I don't mind that you don't matter.

The above?

Is neither an argument in support of, nor evidence for, a god.

You lose by default: your god is still not real.

Galatians 4:4 2 Messiah would be born in Bethlehem. Micah 5:2 Matthew 2:1
Mistaken translation. And not all 4 gospels agree about the "bethlehem" trick.

Moreover, the gospel-fabricators knew about the "prophecy", and could have adjusted their myth accordingly.

Proves nothing.

Finally, why was he called "Jesus of Nazareth"? Hmmm?

And Nazareth wasn't founded until well after the alleged crucifixion anyway.

Wrong word, bubba: the Greek OT word was "maiden" meaning "young girl of marriageable age"

It had **nothing** to do with her history of sexual relations.

Proves nothing.

Besides: there are **hundreds** of similar virgin-born legendary figures popping up roughly 2000 years back... Mithra is my favorite.

Never happened in **real** history.

Zero record of this .. "massacre". Nada. Zip. Nothing.

And those wily Romans? THEY WROTE DOWN EVERYTHING.

But not **that**.

Therefore?

It never happened.

That proves exactly nothing. "messengers" were no doubt popping up all the frikkin' time during those days of mass insanity and wanton gullibility.

Big deal. Happened to **most** of the OT prophets too--- apparently the "prophet" business makes people angry.

Probably because most of these "prophets" were 100% azzholes...

Fail. Jewsus never managed to get even **one** "prophecy" correct.

His most notable fail?

He promised to come back **before** the remaining disciples died.

He did not come back--and they are all dead.

Anyone who is born after Elijah's death, automatically "qualifies" for this bit of stupid.

Popular opinion is not indicative of correctness. Britney Spears has 4 #1 hits. That's four more than Hendrix and the Who combined.

While it agree with your sentiment, Mithra was born from a rock, not a virgin. While it is unlikely, nowhere in Zoroastrian writings states no one had sex with said rock
