The story is a mythological tale . . . and it is not even an original one.
They copied bits and pieces from previous Greek and Egyptian scriptures to create the story of Jesus of Nazareth.
Stories about Horus, Dionysis, Osiris and Hercules were all used to create the fictional account of Jesus.
Everything is fake and everything is copied: the virgin birth, the three wise men, the twelve disciples, the miracles, the crucifixion, resurrection etc etc
The time and place the Jesus supposedly lived: Palestine, 2000 years ago, was a well documented time and place. They had books, newspapers and magazines.
Many authors and scholars of that time existed and wrote books and articles about a wide variety of topics. Those writings have been uncovered and analyzed. Not one mention of a man named Jesus Christ exists. Not one book, not one article, not one paragraph, not one sentence.
The Shroud of Turin was proved to be a fake from the twelfth century.
You can continue to live in a fantasy world and keep this imaginary friend. Or you can become an intellectually superior human being who follows a life that focuses on science, evolution, biology, archeology and . . . the truth.
Rather than ridiculous, archaic, mythological, copied fairy tales.
• Christians (all of the denominations: Protestant, Catholic, Anglican, Lutheran, Presbyterian, Pentecostal, Mormon, Jehovahs Witness, Baptist, Methodist, Orthodox, Seventh-day Adventist) believe in a mythological prophet who never even existed.
