We will have to just agree to disagree. I just realized my source link didn't work.
Here it is again:
Can anyone of you prove that the bird on Perry's shoulder is not Jesus?
Case closed, Perry's shoulder bird for the win.
Perry, your source at CARM did work but it is utterly and hopelessly hide bound in its determination to justify the orthodoxy of modern Christianity. If proper critical scholarship is applied practically every statement is shown to be hollow. For example the idea that the gospels are a true account of the first century is false, Christianity with Jesus is a fourth century phenomenon.
The Bible and the gospels are in the category of magic realism. Ok for the ancients and for children's stories... but certainly not a guide for people today who have an informed brain and can actually control their circumstances.
