RE: Is God an atheist?
I do have a theory about that "historical Jesus" guy though... if anyone cares to hear about it.

***

Jesus' message was: there is no god. He was an atheist - and this was his message of being. The status quo couldn't take the implications - it just wouldn't work either politically or economically - so they effectively took him out. Shit happens - no biggie in the historical scheme of things.

There's more but that's the gist of it. Drinking Beverage

I think in the end, I just feel like I'm a secular person who has a skeptical eye toward any extraordinary claim, carefully examining any extraordinary evidence before jumping to conclusions. ~ Eric ~ My friend ... who figured it out.

If you're right, that'd be the biggest (and bitterest) irony this world has ever seen.

The insistence that there is some "historical Jesus" and that history has a way of creating and/or re-creating itself. If the notion of this Jesus guy was created under the assumption that "it's always about god", then it's possible that if there was actually a guy, he was probably doing something more against the grain than going along with it. If a guy was to be killed by people who desperately wanted a god to exist, then it was most likely that he was saying god didn't exist.

It's just a theory I've been kicking around for many years. I think it's as plausible as anything else.... in fact, far more probable.
Jesus was an atheist. Cool, time to move on from there. Drinking Beverage

RE: Is God an atheist?
If a god existed, he would be so super rational, like Dawkins on crack.

Of course he would be an atheist.

He would see himself as merely a different lifeform who had fantastic abilities, in which other primitive lifeforms would consider godlike.
His name would be "The Picard"
He wouldn't be anything like what we imagine a god to be, because that god is imaginary.
