And claiming to know anything about a 2000 year old dead person is kind ridiculous don't you think?

Yeah well, my pregnant girlfriend can easily say she never had sex too. Sorry, but that doesn't prove anything to me. It's all heresey. We don't know anything about these stories that took place over 2,000 years ago. Either Mary was playing around and her husband was dumb enough to believe her or they were ashamed and lied. Who knows, but these stories did not come from them anyway. Heresey upon heresay doesn't prove anything to me. Christianity is one of the biggest, if not the biggest money making scheme of all time. Pope lives an pretty comfortable life, lives in a nice palace, get's to eat off of golden utensils. For doing what?
Then you have different idiots often with horrible make up and hair, not to mention the bad wigs on the men too on tv wanting money, then you have these priests/pasters and whoever else making a good living off their followers while demanding more from people who aren't making squat. The examples are endless. The jesus story is first packaged to control people, then forced people to join or die, then it turned into the money making scheme it is today. Then you christians wonder why more and more people are turning toward other paths.

Bravo on this post!
Do you mind expanding on this and clarify more on what the entire story means?
This really seems to make more sense then anything I have read before about the story of Jesus.

Lonegunman I always enjoy your posts, so I thank you for the forum. Forgive me if I was to obnoxious. I just want people to see the truth. It is so much simpler then people think.

The documentary did awaken people to the fact that there were many other 'Jesus' figures in different nations, all practicing sun worship...What did we do when we saw Zeitgeist? Researched and found it to be true.....so what was the problem with that?
