Maybe it would be less offensive if they used real rather than fictional people for their art. We should have a piss Hillary, piss Obama, piss Harper,
piss Pelosi, etc. art contest at ATS!

So what you're saying is that Jesus Christ is a fictional character. If this were true, there wouldn't be any evidence that He actually walked on
Earth. What you're saying is that the Holy Bible and Koran is wrong as well as other scripts that's been found to have His name written on them.
Do you deny the Holocaust ever happened?
History is written by the victors. I neither confirm nor deny whether Christ walked on earth or the holocaust happened in the numbers reported, I
wasn't there. Call me a cynic, but there really is too much BS in religion and politics to support any premise that everything pertaining to those two
subjects is actually true. In the case of Christ, a rockstar of those proportions during that time would deserve I think more than a passing footnote,
apart from the Bible of course. On the holocaust, where is the indignation for 20 million Russians being killed, or the Poles or the Armenian
holocaust or the Boer war concentration camps run by the British? You know, one rule fits all, if you are going to be indignant, at least have some
Until I see some hard evidence of any of these things, they are all speculative, subject to relativistic perception, subject to the propaganda spin by
the victors and therefore being unproven, are fictional. I am a glass half full kinda guy, I don't deny Christ existed or the holocaust possibly
happened, I just ask for proof concerning the circumstances of the "party line" story and when I get it, I may believe, until then, the jury is out.
Not believing or reserving belief based on evidence is not denial, especially when the two things you mention are subjects I rarely discuss. There is
a non-zero probability that the story of Christ and the numbers pertaining to the holocaust are true, but then that's based on statistical
I have to ask though, how did the holocaust get into this thread, seems kind of a stretch to me in trying to make a point.
