Don't use that word... if you say it 3 times he will show up. Gladly Jesus has never responded to a call of that matter or else he would be extremely busy on Sundays.

Yeah, there's a historical guy in there somewhere, but if you think he bears any resemblance to the legend that grew around him, it's long past time to grow up.

It's amazing how powerful indoctrination is.
The Santa Clause myth is easily given up yet other supernatural myths are dearly carried to the grave with little questioning.

RE: Jesus historicity
My take on all this is simple.

The historical Jesus got his ass handed to him by the Romans, who strung him up on a couple of sticks and told him to go fuck himself.

The mythical Jesus can blow me.

Pizza anyone?

Such language. Such attitude. Everyone has been here longer than me therefore has squatting rights but I find vulgarity offensive and distasteful. Is it really necessary to communicate in this way. Seth Andrews level of communication is on a higher wavelength rather than what is often expressed here so why is this forum not following in his form.

Read the forum rules. This is a forum, not a censor board.

Check out my now-defunct atheism blog. It's just a blog, no ads, no revenue, no gods.

Hate to be the one to break it to you but 'paul' is as phony as your jesus shit.

Paul seems to have been an invention of Marcion c 140. At least, he does not appear in xtian writings until after 160. Justyn Martyr never heard of paul.... although he did hear of Marcion. I'm sure these facts would never trouble your little fundie mind. That's okay. Leave the heavy thinking to others.

You go pray to your jesus thingy. Enjoy yourself.

Really? Must there also have been a "historical" Osiris, or Thor, or Quetzlcoatl, or Shiva, or Marduk, etc? Myth is a powerful force in human imagination. The insistence that all other myths are simply myths but 'jesus' must have had a real person behind it is little more than special pleading.

A) Bollocks to squatting rights. Precidence doesn't mean shit.
B) How Seth "Cunting" Andrews talks doesn't really mean anything unless it's been codified as part of the forums rules of conduct.
C) My left nut says that swearing is exactly as valid a method of self expression as any other fucking thing.
D) Only some of that matters. You are somewhat justified in asking that people restrict their vocabulary if you feel it offends you. So long as you don't take issue with it's use as emphasis rather than a piece of common expression. Politely request "clean" language as part of an OP and I think you'll probably get it.

Sure. I'd love a pizza.

Soulless mutants of muscle and intent. There are billions of us; hardy, smart and dangerous. Shaped by millions of years of death. We are the definitive alpha predator. We build monsters of fire and stone. We bottled the sun. We nailed our god to a stick.

There is near unanimity among scholars that Jesus existed historically......

Can't help but wonder how many potential quality posters must stay away because of the lack of self-censorship when it comes to choice of language and character attacks and the appeal to emotion rather than intellect under the guise of self expression and freedom of speech.
