"MORALS WERE INVENTED BY MAN"
Really? what do you base that on...
Morality (from the Latin moralitas "manner, character, proper behavior") is the differentiation of intentions, decisions, and actions between those that are good (or right) and those that are bad (or wrong).

Nope not in the least.... that is the actual issue here... Christians assume he said something he did not... He never claimed to be God, and in one situation he even denied it... though most of you like to overlook that passage...
Others claimed he was God... John uses it in his narration... Thomas called him God... Jesus didn't ever make that claim... if he did i would gladly change my stance... Unfortunatly unless some scripture comes to light that has never been revealed to the world sometime in the future, my stance on the issue remains solid...
Are you actually pleading with me to take a christian stance on the issue, when its clear that claiming he was God in the flesh is a flaw? Sorry my friend, my beliefs change when i find a higher truth... and they haven't changed in many years...
Let me make it as simple as i can for you to understand... He never once claimed he was God... that is an assumption held by the churches of the world... Since he never made that claim... by saying he was God you call him a liar by omission... meaning for some reason he left that important little factoid out of his lessons...
He did not claim to be God... not one time... Don't you think if he was God in the flesh, he would have said so... not try to hide it from the world?
MORALS WERE INVENTED BY MAN.
Because man is too clever and intelligent to roam about without morals.
If allowed cannibalism to keep society under control, they would kill purely for the fun of it and blame it on "society control."
Does that work for you?
Therefore we are no different than them and they are no different than us, everything has a soul.
