i think jesus existed. but i also think that nine months before he poped out, someone banged the h3ll out of his mom. it says in the orginal writen text taht Mary was not a virgin but a "young woman". that got screwed up in the translation to latin...or some other language i forget the last time i read it.

Existed or not..I don`t understand why people knock him..he was known to love everyone..so whats wrong with that. I think people try to say the worse things about Jesus just to sound cool. Why can`t he get some credit like mother tersa or drating prinesss Diana...

^ maybe, but the bible says clearly that Mary was a virgin, it didn`t say (or even hint) that Jesus was gay

actually there is serious academic research into whether Jeses was gay and they are just as entitled to believe that as anyone else is entitled to believe his mom was a virgin.

-some people say because we cant see God, God doesnt exist....on that logic, does that mean because we cant see iam_annoyings brain, it doesnt exist???....actually maybe thats a bad example....-

I would have acknowledged that as being a good point if I hadn`t already read it 2 years ago as spam in my inbox. I don`t even know anyone that doesn`t believe in God because you can`t `see` him. I just know people that don`t believe in God because it doesn`t make sense...at least evolution has some science to it, people that preach God say: "He exists. I can`t prove it in any way whatsoever, but he exists. He made everything around you today. The mountains, the trees, the birds, the terrorists...scratch that last one, that was satan. You have the choice to accept him, or not. But if you don`t you`re going to burn in hell."

Comes down to faith, which is what every christian religeon is about.
Now if you dont beleive thats fine, please dont use other peoples beliefs for satire or controversy. eh bobbyo?
The fact that many wars were started over religeon doesnt mean it`s bad, it means that its powerful enough to fight for. It means people value their god over their life.

His post got deleted, like it does on almost every thread he posts on, because it was useless spam.

As far as the link goes, didn`t read it and probably won`t. I`ll agree that some guy named `Jesus` probably existed 2000+ years ago. I`m pretty sure it would be statistically impossible for there not to have been 1 Jesus in a whole year. The part I don`t believe is the miracles. It`s just too easy to say: "This guy healed a blind person by putting mud on their eyes. Houndreds of people saw it, so it`s true. So follow these rules or he`s going to use those same powers to smite you!"

I think she said that because the guy`s only going up against the Catholic church, but you bring up a good point. Why doesn`t he go after ALL the Christian churches, if they all say Jesus was a real person?

Someone said this on another website, I`ll repeat it: the guy`s just trying to get publicity for the book he wrote ("The Fable of Christ"). He`s using it as his evidence, and to examine the evidence, the judge will have to read the book. Cover to cover. The media coverage will probably prompt people`s interest in the subject, and they`ll buy the book. He knows he`s going to lose ("It will take a miracle to win," he joked); he`s just looking for money. People like that really rub me the wrong way.

I`ll be more interested when they prove that Jesus was gay, because he was, you know....flaming...light in his sandals...

alright, so you`re going to say Catholicism violates the law, how about Buddhism, Hinuism, Judaiism, Protestantism, Satanism, Sikhism, and all those other -ism religions. After all, by practicing thier faith, they`re conning people too.

Utter BS.

I agree with MAT. Also, as far as I`m concerned, he did in fact exist. It was only all the miracles, resurrection thing, etc. that were exaggerated by the writers that were hired by the emperor whose name I can`t recall at this moment. The bible was written 300 hundred years after Jesus had died because the empire was falling apart and the emperor needed some way to bring pagans and christians together. So, wether you know it or not, or accept it or not, there are a lot of pagan traditions in christianism that people dont even know about. And people call pagans satanists, lol.

-sigh- Is there any possible way to just ban Iam_annoying? Because really, that`d be nice.

Anyway, who really what another person believes? So long as it does no harm...

Cases like these never turn out well. I don`t see what the big deal is? If people want to believe he existed thats their thing. Why would you want to waste everyones time debating if he did or didn`t. That`s like trying to debate if god exists, but no one would try to debate that in court.

Iam_annoying, what the hell do you think IAB is for?!

So yeah. I didnt bother reading it. If people believe in him, let it go. Don`t go to court just for that.
