Another point I would like to make, is that I don't believe these theories to necessarily be anti-christian. I believe them to be pro-truth seeking.
The bible was compiled and written 300 years after Jesus' life. The gospels were not written by the disciples, they were written well after their
lives by people claiming to know what their stories and teachings about Jesus were. Then the part I find enlightening in the search for the truth is
that this religion was adopted by Constantine who called the Council of Nicea, which was the first general conference of the Christian church. There
were 21 acknowledged cannons and 10 disputed cannons. The disputed ones were ones believed to have no basis in reality.('cause immaculate
conceptions, rising from the dead, and raising the dead are so reality based)
Anyway, there were so many hands in the till, it's hard to say what was real and what was fantasy. Not to mention, if we had no written accounts of
the holocaust and 300 years later people finally decided to put it to pen, what do you think the stories would have built up to? Imagine how a
horrible truth could turn into Satan's demons. Though I believe the holocaust to be a sad point in human history, I do not think the Nazi's were
Satan's demons, they were a fanatical cult killing in the name of their religion, like others before them.
We cannot say the bible is fact. There may be facts in the bible, but it is very difficult for one to distinguish the two. Authored 300 years later,
pulled apart by the church and pieced back together, rewritten by a king to control the people; the bible just cannot be proven as accurate or
truthful, so I wish believers would stop acting like questioning the truth is a blasphemous act. God gave us brains, if he didn't want us to think
and question and learn the truth, he wouldn't have made us who we are, or given us free will. Remember we were made in God's image, so if I behave
intelligently, maybe that's because God wanted me to. Maybe the New Testament isn't about God, just a man who had some good ideas that he believed
were God's words. What if the "miracles," were just a way to make people listen, while getting the word out? I much prefer a good story over a
I guess I just don't understand why questioning for a better understanding is a bad thing. Why is wanting to know the truth so bad. And why the
hell are there so many people out there that just take their preacher's word for it, or their parents, or their bible. How can you question and get
the same stupid nothing answers and not doubt any of it?
Not trying to offend here, but I know I will because everyone is so touchy about religion. It's like you cannot have an open discussion without
hurting someone's feelings. I have a scientific mind, so answers are things I seek, not hurting people's feelings.
