First of all I have never posted or used usenet in my life. If you have ever read one single post I have ever made on this board (as you say you have) you will know that I do not lie about anything and if I say something based on my own opinion that I find to be wrong I have absolutely no problem admitting I was wrong. I even go as far as thanking the person who has pointed out my mistake. This is called having an open mind and willingness to learn and grow as an intelligent human.
People like you wouldn't admit your ass was on fire if you were sitting on a fully inflamed BarBQ pit. Your inability to have one single original thought or for that matter come to an educated conclusion based on personal research and information that has been proven by history or science is as childishly typical. Why think on your own when you can have others tell you exactly what you think. To find out if something is bullshit you go to the source or the beginning of the issue. I see more and more so called Christians back sliding on their once staunch belief that we are all in a world of shit because a talking snake told a naked lady to eat a piece of fruit. That is the beginning, that is the first myth and lie that perpetrates all the others. Either the first one is historically and scientific factual or it is not. If it is not, then the rest of the following bullshit myths are as hallow as the first.
If you think the story of the talking snake isn't reasonable or believable than you have just experienced a tiny hint of what it is like to use your brain in a logical and reasoning manner. As the Christian champion of existential philosophy and mumbo jumbo logic, Kierkegaard stated in the late 19th century "you cannot use reasoning or logic to explain Christianity." Well, that dip shit was at least right about that one thing. Unfortunately it set a precedent of anyone who tried to fake some kind of intelligence and read beyond the bible by picking up a book of philosophy to try and prove that even an intelligent person agrees with them. If any of them went beyond Kierkegaards writing and read about his personal history and life they would find out is was a total nut ball who was beaten by his father and forced to defend the Christian myth or his ass was grass.
If you can take your brain and try to use it for more than a taped message center for your religion you might be able to spend a little time and try and do some research based on historical facts. If Jesus was supposed to have been the son of god and the most important person ever to walk the earth one might think there would be at least 10 historical references to him during the so called time of his life here on earth. There is not. The two most prominent historians living in the same area and living during the time Jesus supposedly lived, did not mention one single historical event or fact about him. I challenge your programed and very shallow mind to find historical facts to dispute my statement. If you do, I will recant my statements in this post. You will find noting during this time or shortly after OUT SIDE of the bible book of myth that backs up any historical fact that the "Christ" ever existed in history.
As far as the similarities of Christ, Buddha and Krishna there are many stories and miracles that have been ripped off from the older writings of the older religions and mysteriously recopied into the bible. The so called miracle of turning a few loaves of bread and a couple of fish into enough food to feed a crowed of people was attributed to Buddha over 200 years before it was ever attributed to Jesus. The myth of the woman who lost her child and was told to collect a mustard seed from the homes of people who had a close relative die was also attributed to Buddha over 200 years before Jesus and was recorded almost word for word in the Buddhist holy book way before it was in the bible. That's just a tad bit coincidental to me. But, if you want to think that the Satin the debble knew over 200 year before hand that Jesus was going to do these things and had the writers of the Tipitaka write them before he was supposedly born than you go right ahead. You wouldn't be the first so called Christian to deny history of religious myth and accept Christian myth so that you can sleep all snugly at night in your bed knowing that Jesus loves you and your brain can keep cruising along in total oblivion to history and science.
If it wasn't for people like you, people like me wouldn't need to learn how to read or think. We could all just float through life accepting that Santa slips down our chimney Christmas Eve and the Easter bunny makes millions of colored eggs once a year and hides them so millions of kids can go find them then toss them in the garbage once they turn rotten.
Now, did the people or person you claim I am who you played bible games with on usenet post like I do? If so, I would like to meet this person or persons. As far as you are concerned, keep believing what ever you like, your mind is so close to anything close to historical fact or truth you wouldn't know it if it flew up your butt.
Here's a suggestion, read more than one book in your life!
