    It's a story in a book of mythology, you can't demonstrate Jesus actually ever existed in the first place.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Because unfortunately, you tend to do poorly with the obvious.

    Nope. You can hate gravity all you want, it doesn't change the fact that gravity exists. Your feelings have no bearing on what actually is.

    Ahhh...but who said anything about changing the fact that gravity exists?

    At one point man could not fly. That was, undeniably, the reality. Then people started feeling, thinking, trying to change that reality and Voilà: they did indeed change the reality, they figured out a way to temporarily defy gravity and man can now fly.

    No, man still cannot fly, man can make big metal cylinders fly and can ride on the inside. Man, by himself, doesn't fly. Try again.

    People on old ages were too stupid (before they started to eat frozen meat).
    When they saw the rain and thunderstorms, they called it God's punishment.
    They called a God even the guy who invented the fire, who probably made it accidentally. lol

    I'm sure if we ever see someone flying (who knows, it may be smth not explored yet like the fire), he will be called "God" and it will be same stupid as it was at B.C. ages.

    Why rely on belief? Why not know? Why not at least determine if it is likely or not? Belief is just what you want to be true. Relying on belief instead of knowledge is a terrible idea.

    A great concept, and it makes no sense.
