It's a great story. I think that Jesus did exist historically speaking but that when the Romans got a hold of his philosophy they corrupted it. I
think his greatest lesson was that people don't need religion, he taught that so long as you have Love you will find "God" and you don't need a
middle man or all those silly rules the Old Testament is full of (which strangely many Christians still try to follow)... I think the establishment
religion killed Jesus because he was teaching people things they found subversive to their control over the people and their minds.
I agree that most of the supernatural parts are rubbish borrowed from other religions and perverting the message of the true Jesus and making him into
some pagan sun god blending his teachings with the polytheistic religions of the day (hence why Catholics pray to Mary and the Saints and their
religion is filled with occult pagan symbolism, such as the Cross)...
The Romans saw the ideas of the early Christian church as rebellious and dangerous. Once Constantine and the Romans got hold of Christianity they
tossed out most of the Gnostic texts where the real bulk of the philosophy of the religion existed and they perverted it, twisted it, and ended up
using it to create guilt, fear, to control people's minds. They used it to uphold their tyrannical rule, to justify genocide, racism, torture,
inquisitions, and suppression of scientific discovery... And thus Christianity became, as you said, History's greatest scam...
One man 2000 years ago tries to teach us to love each other be nice to each other and look at what "his" religion is used for. It really is just a
big joke now, and more and more blind believers fall for hook line and sinker each and every day
