We'd all be Jewish.

Or why can't god simply be satisfied with animals that get killed by predators, run over by cars, etc. That satisfies the blood spilled, pain and torture if it's prolonged pain. Why doesn't roadkill count as a blood sacrifice?

BTW, if any theists want to comment on this thread, I'm not looking for explanations, I'm mocking the stupid barbarity of the entire atonement concept.
Read Isaiah 53. It pretty much explains why things had to be done the way it was done.

You mean the fiction had to be written that way, right? Consider

No 'prophecies' were ever 'fulfilled' except by back-fitting the story.

Jesus' life was not a fulfillment of prophecy, it was a story written to match prophecies according to their interpretation of them.

That's why stories of his virgin birth appear well after the supposed time of Jesus, (based off of a misinterpreted word virgin=young woman) they wrote their story to fit it.
The point I was trying to make was not to somehow prove the stories are legitimate. It was to show why the specific events of the stories were written.

Ah, so you agree it is fiction? Thumbsup

(if the Jews, being non-proselytising, had out-bred all other tribes and managed to dispose of the peoples emerging in the other continents of the planet ... and best of luck against those Chinese/Mongols. If not, we'd all be Buddhish).

Fixt.

John was never going to make old bones.

You don't wander around Galilee in the first century claiming the kingdom of God is at hand without drawing the attention of the authorities.

Just like the other crazy fuck... Jesus.

Roses are red,

If it wasn't for Paul,
We'd all be Jewish
There would be no bacon
Or shellfish for snacks
We'd wail at the wall
And wear funny hats
