What I mean by Hallmarks is you have the crusade to prove it wrong (those who do not believe do not seek additional information, they are already convinced.)
If you have read it, I am curious what is your opinion and how do you consider it's implications to the Issa scenario?

I think it is very interesting that this topic comes up here every few years. Was it a cross, or a pole; was He nailed or tied up? Did He die or was he found close to death and spirited away? Did He take a boat with Mary to France? It's always fun to speculate since none of us were there and they apparantly didn't keep acurate records back then. But it should create a decent discussion. Good luck
In fact, it is the view of modern NT scholars that NOT ONE of the NT books was written by anyone who met a historical Jesus.
Amongst all the early Christian writings, there is only ONE claim to have met Jesus - in the forged 2nd century 2 Peter.

So the choice is to believe in the Bible, arguably the greatest book ever written, the book of LIVING FAITH for BILLIONS of people...
Something put together by a bunch of whining atheists who make really bad web pages?
One interesting thing about this thread is the theory about the spike like pole for the crucifixion, or the actual traditionally accepted cross.
Interesting stuff that, something to research... Though that his blood was spilled in love (for a world that hated him) and was resurrected in the wine of believers is all that matters...

Christopher Hitchens? Atheists are stupid aren't they. I mean what a bunch of silly billys for not wanting to believe or put trust in an unfalsifiable theory.
What a bunch of idiots for wanting to discuss more profound human thoughts such as discussion of scientific theory, which can help progress and improve the lives of the human race.
so why should i trust something when i am in a reality that relies on absolute truth?
Progress? lol Look what progress has got us. Take a look in the Gulf of Mexico at what 'progress' has done for mankind.
