Whether Jesus.... the simple man who lived among Jews in Jewish settlemts having issues with fellow Jews,,riding donkeys, hiding most of the time for fear of being stoned or beaten up... existed is not the main issue.<quoted text>I've stated before in this thread that if Jesus didn't in fact exist, then whomsoever invented him was some kind of genius, establishing an ideal of conduct.
Of course, not many turn the other cheek, or give their coats to thieves in addition to their wallets. Far from it. WE SUE THE BASTARDS, DAMNIT!!!
Did the mythical WHITE naked pagan satan on a pole, who is being worshipped by ignorant people as a mangod who created heavens and earth, and who is NOTHING like Jesus exist?
The answer is NO!!!
