    Didn't you know? Jesus was obviously Korean.
    BTW some of the paintings were real authentic paintings from the late 19th century when Christianity was illegally spreading throughout Korea much like how it spread throughout Rome. Some painters decided to paint Jesus to their imagination, to show that the teachings of Jesus can be universal. Points for those who can apply them to the thread.

    This is one of the first images of Jesus.

    The eyes symbolizing his two natures -- Human and Divine.

    Notwithstanding the eyes, I believe this to be probably the most accurate depiction we will come across...
    From a quick search of the image, it's an icon, not a portrait. Very different, those two. BTW according to wiki, the two mismatching sides of the face which is obvious even to the casual observer suggests of Jesus's two sides-fully human and fully God which means that the icon itself isn't very realistic.

    I fail to see the difference.

    Anyway, I think there's a lot more normative and moral power in my conception of sentience: People are all sovereign, to an extent, and living in a subjective world. To that end, the constructs we create have the ultimate moral power in the world -- governments, laws, systems of thought. These are literally everything -- both our captors and our saviours.

    There is nothing but us -- but I think that's a powerful thing.

    What is a god except something which gives meaning to the universe? That is precisely what we do. You and I -- we're Gods. We don't need some fairy tale about an incestual father-son celestial dictator to give us meaning -- we can do it ourselves.

    In fact, we have been all along.
    The problem is that you have not offered a "conception of sentience." All you have offered is temporary, malleable designations, that offer not the slightest bit of insight into what is the nature of the sentient being that is experiencing the designations. Again, at one time, someone may have asked what are you, and you would have responded that you were a boy. But you can no longer make such a claim. But the sentient being, the observer is still there, although the designation of "boy" is not. You say there is "nothing but us." But when I ask you "what are you", I am asking, exactly what is that "us"? For you to say there is nothing but "us", you need to say what "us" is.

    It's more than "just a book". The Bible (or the many interpretations of it) is probably the most wide-spread and most read book in history. It influenced and inspired billions and still does so today. To say that it's "just a book" is drastically underestimating its importance, comparable to saying of Abraham Lincoln or Hitler as "just people". I'm an atheist but have enormous respect for most religions and appreciate how they can empower and inspire people. I can only hope that fellow atheists will do so also.

    But I do know that a lot of extreme black racists from Obama's racist cult insist that Jesus was black. They have no evidence of it or anything, they are merely extremist anti-white racists. Whites are "devils" according to those scumbag racists like Obama. That is in their official cult doctrine/dogma.
    There's overwhelming evidence that he existed. As for the latter part, I'm not going to even address it.

    It was a book written by men, used by men, to control other men. Everyone from the Church of England to the Holy Roman Empire have used this book to put fear into the minds of other men as to what will happen if they disobey. I have very little respect for that book.
