Jesus never existed, the story is unoriginal (virgin birth, died for 3 days and rose again, etc, etc, ad nauseam) and the story was delivered to a
bunch of illiterate desert-dwellers because...?
Where are you from? You say the The people were illiterate desert dwellers? Is that meant to say that the worlds greatest powerful nation is
literate and much better educated than those of Jesus' day? I would suggest that you google facts instead of saying things that you know nothing
More than 30 million adults in the United States cannot read, write, or do basic math above a third grade level. —
Children whose parents have low literacy levels have a 72 percent chance of being at the lowest reading levels themselves. These children are more
likely to get poor grades, display behavioral problems, have high absentee rates, repeat school years, or drop out. — National Bureau of Economic
75 percent of state prison inmates did not complete high school or can be classified as low literate. — Rand Report: Evaluating the
Effectiveness of Correctional Education
Low literacy is said to be connected to over $230 billion a year in health care costs because almost half of Americans cannot read well enough to
comprehend health information, incurring higher costs. —
Josephus tells us the the highest population rate in the 1st century Jerusalem was about 1,100,000 people. So lets compare the United States of today
with the so called desert dwellers of Jesus' day. Not counting the 12.5 million illegals in this country alone, there are another 30,000,000 legals
who can' read or write above the 4th grade level. Hummmm- Quite embarrassing isn't it?
Think about that when you blow your own horn and then do a google on the international test scores and cover your face in shame. Our entire system is
broke and over half of America doesn't know it.
