Hispanics commit three times the crimes than whites.

Your color is irrelevant if you did the crime.

I have yet to see anything definitive, as far as the historicity of the jesus character.
Circumstantial, at best-- and very, very weak circumstantial.
The more rigorous the scholarship? The less likely there was an historical jesus character.
For a claim as large as Genuine Christianity™? You need an equally large set of facts.
The most damning is this:
The oldest christian writings that still exist, all speak of jesus as a pure spirit,**never** as a man. Some sort of celestial being **only**(in other words, pure myth).
It's only after several generations, do we see christian writings that begin to speak of a human jesus in any meaningful way.
And Constantine's bible fabrication committee comes along 300 years later still and you have it-- a religion minted out of legend and folk tales.
There never was a real figure behind any-- none of the NT characters were real, no disciples, no paul, no mary-- none of that is real.
.. to dismiss the historical man known as Jesus, you must ignore all gospels including Gnostic writings dismissed by Constantine ..

.. why would so many people write of such a person if he was not real? That simply doesn't make sense to me ..

.. the historical Jesus was most likely a rebel, a mystical rabbi who angered both Jews and Romans ..

.. your presumption is incorrect ..
.. in the past, I have disagreed and critiqued atheists, including AIN. Some posters are highly offended when I point out their tactless behavior ..
.. dissing involves a perpetrator, a target and an audience. By now, you must realize most of your audience does not appreciate your constant mocking ..
.. your targets reflect something you detest in self, it's really that simple ..
.. so says Dr. HL ..
No, mocking involves a hero, arrogant idiots and a blonde.

Your comment in no way answered my point, repeated below.
You **are** an idiot.
So what?
Egyptian civilization with EGYPTIAN GODS, lasted 4000 to 6000 years or more, depending on who you ask.
Chinese gods are even **older**-- lasting upwards of 10,000 years or so.
Your pathetic religion is a new kid on the block--
--- soon?
Your hate-cult will fade away too.
No, they didn't.

NONE of your quote-mines support your claim-- they are each and every one-- OPINION.
NONE refute my request for DOCUMENTATION DURING JESUS ALLEGED LIFE.
None.
You don't have any.
Therefore?
Your Jesus is pure myth.
NEXT!
And that is your opinion, right?

Snicker.

Your "get behind me satan" has **never** worked in the history of the world?
Likely because both your god, and your favorite, satan, are not real.

Certainly, and that's an apt term.

That's something I notice frequently, and I'll go ahead and say most atheists do as well.

Christians will accept and even rely upon science, fact, evidence, and other aspects of the natural world we all share in common - until - their deity belief is placed in question or imperiled by those same aspects of the natural world we commonly share and agree upon.

Then for the theist of any flavor, they have to retreat to .·:*¨`*The Land of Woo*¨`*:·., and the inhabitants there believe in everything from werewolves to vampires, cosmic aura powered bath salts to tin foil hats, to just about anything you can dream up, and god(S).

That's also due to a higher number of atheists in each state of high crime rates. Now understand, as soon as the cheap cowards kill someone, they then go claiming they are Christian so their jail /prison term is reduced. The stats of Christians in prisons are skewed way, way too high.
99% go in due to being atheists, then they lose their brash arrogance once arrested. It's the typical coward in an atheist. It's the "Bob" effect. To lie.
Yup, I can totally see Blob "turning Christian " as soon as he got locked up. He be going to church, praying, getting a cross tattoo and making sure the parole board knows it.

"Bobstyle" lol.

I found 3.
Sweden is mostly atheist.
So is Denmark and so is Switzerland.
All are majority atheists.
And all have superior cultures than **any** religious country (including the USA).
All enjoy low crime rates, very low infant mortality, universal health care, and very high average salaries.
Most likely because they dumped toxic religion (apart from a purely symbolic remainder, devoid of any real substance).
And they **never** let religion interfere with **any** serious decision.
Um, no, you didn't.

It Ain't said religion is forbidden.

Even though Cali has the strictest gun laws in the union.

Gun laws promote gun violence.
