I do not fell like I am a victim of two people who lived 6000 years ago, I think I am under a sentence of death because of those two people, but do not think of it as being a victim.
Wow. How is one not to feel like a victim because of a sentence of death? Read this statement ten times and see just how silly it it.
The rest of your post was also grounded on the supreme assumption that the Bible actually is without error, that Jesus actually was the son of God, etc. Sorry -- no Bible scholar worth his salt would agree with this. Unfortunately, not all of humanity learned from the great works of the Enlightenment. I think you have compeletely approached this issue from one side and one side only -- that of conservative Christianity. Really -- my God, man! -- there is so much you are missing.
The "Ransom Sacrifice" is one of the most perverse, incoherant and twisted religious ideas humankind has ever thought of. I don't have the time to get into that now, though. It will have to wait. Oh, hell...I'll just say this: God supposedly sends his son to die as a blood offering to himself. HIMSELF!! The blood wasn't paid to Satan (which would have remotely made more sense) but was paid to the person who provided the money, so to speak! Oh, and what a sacrifice -- according to Christians God and Jesus both knew for a fact that JC would be ressurrected -- not much of a sacrifice if you ask me. The whole thing is so convoluted I've got to believe the councils that cannonized the Bible in the 4'th century must have been giggling.
Let me get this straight, we have sin in our nature, right? Okay -- so where is it? The human genome is the blueprint for nearly everything about us from the color of our eyes to our sexual orientation. Have scientists ever found a gene(s) for "sin"? Nope.
You're a Catholic, right? The Pope has officially endorsed evolution, right? All evolution is based on gene fluctuation -- additions, mutations, genetic transfer, etc. So -- where is sin? Are chimpanzees 99.5% sinners since we share that amount of genetic information with them? You see, your definition of human "nature" is based on pure mysticism which has no grounding in actual fact.
To the others: thanks for the comments. I'll respond more on this thread tomorrow (if it is still alive). I'm going to bed now. Goodnight
