It only looks flat, if you shut off your brain-- as religion teaches you to do.<quoted text>..The World "looks" flat ...but, even ancients saw the shadow the earth cast on the moon ...and realized Earth was round ..
The bible clearly describes the earth as a flat round disc... but with 4 "corners", held up by 4 pillars...(up from...what? bible doesn't say....)
And since the bible is the ABSOLUTE AUTHORITY according to religion?
Anyone who questions this, gets killed. Or worse.
So anyone who observed the obvious: watching a ship sail away over the horizon is one >>empiric<< example of around world...
... if you are not deathly afraid of pointing out the bible is...
Jesus never existed, so it hardly matters.I'm sure Jesus can give a flying f**k at a rolling donut ,as to whether or not ,He won any popularity contests ..
If he DID?
He was pretty much a narcissist. He >>demanded<< exclusive adoration to the point of fanaticism.
So, if he was real? Yeah-- he damn right cared if he was popular-- in fact, he would've insisted on it.
Or he'd kill your sorry azz....
.... just like his daddy.
