I completely believe. just like i believe in God. All these church people cant be crazy.
Actually to be honest.. all those church people CAN be crazy.. They are crazy in the sense that they adhear to a set of rules established in ancient
times not in modern times. Lets be straight up here.. its ok to want to be good to your fellow man etc etc, but cherrypicking what you want out of
the bible and ignoring the BLATENTLY obvious evidence of racism/ sexism/ slavery/incest as well as barbarism and human sacrifice that was overly
abundant in the old testament is crazy. The bible is not only the new testament but the old as well, and ole God was a mean son of a gun during old
testament period of the bibles history. From fathers having the right to send their daughters into slavery to stoning unruly children or kiling
men/women for working on the sabbath, the bible was a book written for the time.. not for all time. the ten commandments were never meant to be the
rules for the world.. they were the rules for the hebrews during a period of time when they were in isolation having supposedly been enslaved for a
period of time and now they had to rely on each other to stay alive and remain a nation. The fact remains that while certain locations and names from
the bible can be traced back through history, events such as Jesus's birth, life, and death are only recorded in bible history supported only by
those who have a vested intrest in keeping the bible as a legit document to support their claims of being the one "true" religion.
Yet lets look at the fact that several non-christian historians of that time period dont even record jesus at all.. and if they do the name is jesus
of damascus not jesus of nazareth (which by the way no archeologist has found nazareth at all even when trying to go off discriptions of its location
in the bible. Now don't you find it odd that the place jesus came from, the savior of the whole human race cannot be found? I mean wouldn't that
site be a holy site like the place of his death and burial is and just because of that fact should never have disappeared?).
Events such as the 3 hours of darkness after the crucifixion should have been seen world wide.. not a localized event yet philo and Pliny the Elder
make no note of him or this event when they clearly were alive during his supposed life time.. why is that?
Counter reasearch for proof of Jesus in history
Not trying to get off topic but the point i was trying to make is that what you and the Op and others state is just that.. a statement of your faith
not proof.. i have presented documented research thats a heck of a lot more substantial then your belief/faith and could be considered proof .. and
thats the problem with the subject of aliens.. while i guess its perfectly fine to totally believe in aliens/god without asking questions or demanding
evidence, doing so without either of those two things makes one look just a tad crazy hence yes all those church going people can be crazy... sorry if
i derailed the thread but i had to comment.
