well, at the moment, I got 3 flags and no responses...will take that as a hint that the question itself requires a bit of pondering.
Anyhow, I will add a bit of my personal view.
I think the story and lessons of Christ (real or not, that doesn't matter) transends the magical stuff that is attributed to him. Stay the judgement,
try love instead of hate for those whom wrong you, etc etc...at the time, it was pretty alien conceptually...so, even if it was just some dirt farmer,
I think those are damn good lessons and should stand the test of time.
I don't agree with all that is said he taught, but most of it is actually pretty accurate...at this point (2k years later) it seems pretty common
sense. Since then we have also had some stellar philosophers, humanists, esoteric individuals whom have added on, clarified, or created deeper
messages than those, but in regards to foundation, Christ did well (or his PR people).
Is there such thing as an atheist Christian?
And on the flip side, I reckon magical or not, Christ was mostly try to get his message across moreso than how awesome he was personally. I think if
he came back and seen loads of people worshipping him as a god, he would potentially face palm (especially when he notes his messages are for the most
part, ignored in leu of just worshipping his life).
