    true. until, of course, he proceeded to produce unexplainable miracles capped by rising from the dead and then continuing to interact with people for two millenia. millions of Christians alive today claim to have interacted with the Risen Christ - are we all insane?

    it's because you are misreading who votes. Liberals tend to think that Jesus was a liberal, and Conservatives tend to think that Jesus wouldn't fit inside of a 20th century western culture political ideology. add in "potato" to the other end of the ledger .

    Him having existed as an actual person is one thing. Him having produced 'miracles' is a different one.

    Perhaps it would have been best if I never commented. Sometimes I forget how the 'faithful' can not be reasoned with WRT religion. That's what happens when the brainwashing starts in childhood.

    Yea that's why you ignored my response, because I was brainwashed.

    so people raised in Christianity are brainwashed, and only adult converts are insane. got it.

    If you were raised from early childhood with religion, you might well be.

    But no, I ignored your response because it did not warrant a response. Do you, or anyone else, have empirical evidence that this jesus person performed 'miracles'? That there is a god? That your god is real while the gods of every other religion are false? Empirical, not feeling, or faith.

    Adult converts make even less sense, as by the time one is an adult, they should be able to use reason and logic and not need to rely on mythology.

    Comparing to today standards - Conservative all the way.
    Comparing to then standards - Moderate.
    Then people thought differently.

    What on earth are you talking about? Or is it just the normal diversion from questions that ask about real evidence of all the faith based stuff?
