way back then 2000 years ago for people to take it seriously. So lets see, there were psychic wannabe sandpeople in the desert that wrote stories
about Jesus over a hundred years after his death (if he was even a real person,you cant prove it)...They wrote things Jesus said when they never even
knew him. Whats mindblowing to me is that some people beleive that crap. NOT ONE THING they wrote has come to pass, NOT ONE, oh ofcourse ANYONE can
turn a metaphore into whatever you want so to some it is accurate based on what they want it to mean. Looking at how the book was made, YOUVE GOTTA BE
A SUCKER to buy into the scam..and what is really annoying is people who claim to take the bible literally but when it reads something you dont agree
with ,then it was a MISTRANSLATION. The book is garbage and its sad so many fools beleive and are STILL waiting on some person to return that was a
combination of dieties before him. to be a christian. First you must learn to be in denial ,then learn to beleive simply what you want to because you
want to because nothing has been proven to you. What gets me is people actually argue over this garbage,its a wonder people so dumb can function in
society. They must get ripped offall the time because they beleive anything cause if you beleive what the bible has written then YOULL BELEIVE

Do you mean to say there is not any useful knowledge to be gleaned from the Bible? I'm of the thinking that the people you can "suckers" are
geniuses who are adept at thwarting even the best con man in comparison to you, if that is what you truly believe. You've been suckered into
believing the Bible is simply what it means to the basest, most superficially-interpreting of all Christians. In that, you could be considered further
off the mark than they themselves are.
For those of weak intellect and weaker spiritual understanding, the Bible may be exactly what you say it is. There is a reason for such phrases as
"for those with eyes to see..." - it's because there is a much deeper message, one which is actually fairly obvious to those who are not,
metaphorically speaking, blind.
As to Jesus being an amalgamation of previous deities, did you ever consider that maybe, whether in flesh or not, that was by design? Because there is
a long-held knowledge, and that a consistent message has been passed down through humanity, under various guises, for thousands and thousands of
years? Whether that was the doing of those known as "The Gods", or simply long-held knowledge, passed on through humanity's various mystery
religions really matters not. Well, at least for those with eyes to see, and ears to hear.
For the true suckers...maybe not so much.
By the way, I've got a bridge to sell you when you've finished reading this one...now that we know who really is the sucker.
