Christian brainwashing naturally leads to narcissistic and sociopathic behavior because godbots are programmed to believe they're the "chosen ones" and the personal prejudices of the terrestrial authors of the damn bible were divinely inspired.
A Christian cultist who understands that the biblical Jesus wasn't an historical figure is an ex-Christian cultist.
Of course, an imaginary friend will forgive all unethical and even unlawful conduct.
It's never been rational to believe the universe was created by design because there's never been a single scientific observation in support of such a juvenile hypothesis. It's never been more irrational to believe because modern science has essentially ruled out any supernatural involvement. Thus, all Christian cultists should ask themselves why they're desperately clinging to Dark Ages dogma.
You're certifiably insane and should be sharing your inane delusions with competent mental health care professionals instead of making a complete fool of yourself on an international forum with your inability to differentiate Christian mythology from reality.
Clearly you lack understanding of what constitutes a myth.

By definition, Christianity does not meet the criteria of a myth.

Granted, that does not make it true, but it does not qualify as a myth.

Obviously, it's YOU who lacks the capacity to understand myths and mythology.

Myth - a traditional story about heroes or supernatural beings, often attempting to explain the origins of natural phenomena.
Mythology - a group of myths that belong to a particular people or culture and tell about their ancestors, heroes, gods and other supernatural beings.

The fictional story of Jesus is an example of a myth. Christianity is a collection of silly myths.

I really have to wonder about people who claim Jesus never existed. They'll admit that Alexander the Great existed but most of what we know about Alexander the Great comes from the historian Arrian and he wrote about 400+ years after Alexander. In contrast, we have Tacitus, Josephus, and Suetonius all writing within 200 years of Jesus, which is an acceptable time span by ancient standards; and that's just from the secular accounts. We have to go with the ancient standards because our own standards were so radically changed by the invention of the movable press.

Once again, you can make the same definitively wrong statement everyday for the rest of your worthless life, but it will never come true. There are no reputable historians or rational adults who think the biblical Jesus was an historical figure.

Our planet was never inhabited my the son of any of the thousands of documented mythical deities. The precious few documents supposedly in support of an historical Jesus are blatant forgeries. You're a stark raving mad insane lunatic and should be institutionalized immediately, kid.

You really should be wondering about the godbots like yourself who have been brainwashed into believing that mythical characters from fictional books can have children.

We've been through before. I provide you with such info and you're brainwashed mind is incapable of processing irrefutable facts in contradiction to your programming.

Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence and there's absolutely no historical evidence in support of the biblical Jesus, kid.

http://rationalrevolution.net/articles/jesus_...

The core problem for the Jesus story is this:

1. If Jesus was the Son of God and the Biblical accounts are accurate, then why is Jesus so glaringly absent from the other historical accounts of the time?

2. If Jesus wasn't the Son of God but rather just a person, then how did nothing more than a "marginal Jew" become elevated to the status of God so shortly after his death and earthly burial?

That Jesus began as the mythical Son of God in the first place solves both of these problems and is more in line with both the facts and the traditional Christian story.

Now watch for names like Earl Doherty or Ken Humphreys. These men are so far off on their history that I would be amazed if they knew what history was. It all comes down to avoiding the truth. The only reason a Christ-myther believes those claims from people like Murdock and Doherty is because they can't find a good argument against the resurrection. It's so much easier to just claim that Christ didn't exist. Ken Humphreys expended more energy to came up with more nonsense to refute the existence of Jesus than what intelligent atheists like Ludermann use in debating the resurrection. I feel bad for people who are so desperate to reject Jesus.

That Website cites Richard Carrier, there is one historian. His website is kind of weird as I've never come across a scholar asking for charity:

There was not enough time from the the events to be classified as a myth.

You can't start a myth about present events.

A myth can't be started while witnesses are still alive. That's the entire reason that atheists who argue against the existence of Jesus like to claim a late dating for the gospels. It's unfortunate that they spend more effort doing that than just accepting the truth.

Congratulations! You just proved beyond any and all reasonable doubt that you're certifiably insane and should be in a mental institution.

It's historical fact that the damn bible is a mostly plagiarized book and the fictional story of Jesus was based on the many saviors preceding the abomination known as Christianity.

There's absolutely no reason to believe the biblical Jesus is even in part based on an historical figure given that the precious few documents supposedly in support of your imaginary friend are blatant forgeries.

The blind hypocrisy of a death-denying cowardly Christian cultist accusing rational adults of refusing to accept the truth for having the common sense to reject and oppose Dark Ages dogma is priceless.
