firstly to clarify the concerning the criticisms of jesus of nazareth

JESUS WAS NOT A CHRISTIAN HE WAS A JEW

He was a student of john the baptist, a successor to his beliefs. these beliefs represented the ultimate in tolarence which has never been represented by catholics, muslims or any religion. They have been continually distorted, abused etc just as have Mohammads. EVERY RELIGION IS HYPOCRITICAL TO THE EXTREME. Mohammad and Jesus were more than likely two of the most profoundly genius and remarkable men to walk the planet - whatever the truth of their lives, their influence is plain to see. Such a shame it is the direct opposite of how they intended it. NO RELIGION is what it claims, they are all human cults, the result and reaction to conditions and desires of peoples across history.

THE NAZIS WERE NOT CHRISTIAN

I read that in a posted comment. The nazis were secular gangsters who lead a legal popular revolution by illegal methods most consistantly with the use of violence. Hitler called Christianity the religion of 'pity' and if ever there was a man to despise pity it was Hitler. Hence Blitzkrieg, the most pitiless form of warfare ever designed and his own command to the SS, "show no pity". I think anyone will agree, he was anything but Christian.

Its time for mankind to accept that the human condition can be explained, if not entirely understood, through philosophical and scientific research. We can attain moral guidance of ourselves and don't need an impossibility such as an omniscient father-judge to do it for us. Consider the vast expanses of the universe or even the Sahara. At which point does the hurtling comet or the scuttling lizard consider as foolish a thing a piece of paper on which to place all the complexities of their lives? to place all their hopes and loves in the only thing that has consistently betrayed and murdered innocent people? AND THAT THING IS RELIGION!

WHAT NEED WILL WE HAVE OF A JUDGEMENT DAY? WHAT POSSIBLE PHYSICAL OR BIOLOGICAL PROCESS WILL CAUSE IT? WHERE ARE THE DINOSAURS IN THE TORAH FOR CHRISTS SAKE!?!?! IF GOD DOES EXIST, WHY WOULD HE PRODUCE SUCH OBSCURE TEXTS? IS HE INCAPABLE OF COMMUNICATING CLEARLY? WHY DID HE PUT THE TREE OF KNOWLEDGE IN THE BLOODY GARDEN IF HE DIDNT WANT ADAM AND EVE TO EAT IT?! WAKE UP, OPEN YOUR EYES!!! EVEN IF HE DOES EXIST, WHY WOULD A BEING RESPONSIBLE FOR THE CREATION OF THE UNIVERSE BE CONCERNED WITH A ROCK IN A RATHER INDISCRIMINATE SOLAR SYSTEM?? WE'D BE MAGGOTS TO SUCH A THING! LESS THAN DIRT IN HIS TOENAILS! WE DIDN'T ASK TO BE BORN SO WHY BE PUNISHED FOR LIVING A SINFUL LIFE? IT JUST DOESN'T ADD UP.

ACCEPT THE TRUTH - man created god, god did not create man! you don't see reindeer praying to rudolph five times a day yet jehovah, allah whatever is the human equivalent.

thank you
