    Well actually you are quite wrong people can be executed in many ways including crucifiction and they often do make such last minute prayers of forgiveness. Dying in peace and accepting ones fate with dignity or some such thing.

    Second of all there is no evidence he existed and therefore that he was crucified and therefore that he made any such prayer.

    The gospels are not evidence of his existence or divinity.
    Give me an example of someone being crucified in that way and praying thus.

    Thousands of not tens or hundreds of thousands were crucified few had their last words recorded. As I said many people are executed in many ways and before facing thenoose or cross or needle or chair or whatever people make dying statements and sometimes forgive those executing them. try surfing and browsing the last words of executed criminals. If it happens today there is no reason to believe it did not happen 2000 years ago.

    And once again you are missing the point that there is no evidence he existed and therfore none that he was cricified.

    There simply is truth or logic to claiming that forgiving ones executioners is evidence of divinity.

    Ah -- so that's why you keep starting all these race threads. It's because others are somehow responsible.


    Is the concept of taking responsibilty for your own actions rather than blaming them on others a foreign concept to you?

    There is evidence that he existed. There is written record that he did. So you can't say there is no evidence. Now you may question the reliability of that evidence, and that's ok. But you can't say there is none there.

    Not only that but you can't provide an instance of someone being tortured in such a cruel way, put to death, and then asking for forgiveness of the perpetrators. Where is that person? Give me one example of someone being tortured like that, and being put to death like that and asking for forgiveness for the perpetrators like that. Furthermore, the vast difference in the case of Jesus, is that Jesus lived a life where he not only taught, but practiced such forgiveness. Which person in Europe prior to Jesus taught people to love their enemies? Which person in Europe prior to Jesus taught people to turn the other cheek? Indeed prior to his torture and crucifixion Jesus taught the following

    38 Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth:
    39 But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also.
    40 And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy coat, let him have thy cloak also.
    41 And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him twain.
    42 Give to him that asketh thee, and from him that would borrow of thee turn not thou away.
    43 Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy.
    44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;
    45 That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.
    46 For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same?
    47 And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so?
    48 Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.
    Indeed these are truly divine principles. No one was talking about such things in Europe before Jesus. That's the evidence of the divine nature of Jesus.

    Jesus as beyond awesome. In this world all you see is people wanting revenge and hating. Jesus was divine. It is because he had transcended the material world and the bodily concept of life. He had thoroughly realized the truth that indeed he was from the Supreme, Divine, Transcendental, Almighty God.

    I take full responsibility for what I have said, and there is nothing racist about what I have said. I don't see you criticizing people for saying that mixed race children are susceptible disease. Take some responsibility and speak out. I don't see you criticizing people for saying that white women who marry blacks are less educated and intelligent. Why don't you speak out then? Take some responsibility. Maybe you don't speak out because you agree with them. But if I start talking about the racist things that whites do, I'm a racist. Your position is BS.

    There is no evidcence that he existed yes I can say that because it is fact and you are dead wrong.

    The bible is not written record of his existence as it was wirtten long after his presumed life and death. Therefore it is not contemporaneous with his life. In fact no historical secular or written history exists of him prior to decades after his presumed life and death. The easliest known reference is not even directly about him but about his followers. Roman records exist of written correspondence between various officials who discussed his followers and therefore made referrence to him by name but nothing more specific than that

    One more time I cannot provide an example when so many hundreds of thousands have been executed without a record of what they said.

    It is a false assumption on your part that NONE of them did so. In modern executions it is not uncommon for people to forgive the executioners. Therefore it is not reasonable to assume as you do that no one would have done so in the past. Your claim is that you know and CAN know what people will think and say when faced with death you do not and cannot.

    Yes people were talking about such things before jesus. Not in the same way or with the same details but in fact they did. Nothign in Jesus message was new it is as old as humanity. Sanscrit writings and others which pre date jesus by millenia describe the same basic messages of morality. Men did not need an obscure rumor of a jewish prophet to understand christian morality.

    BTw Jesus was not european so I fail to see why you focus on that part of the world.

    You cannot conclusively prove that the manuscripts that are there were not written from either the firsthand accounts of witnesses to the events or from actual written, recorded manuscripts of the events that were contemporaneously recorded with his life. And that is a fact. And because that is, in fact the case, you cannot say there is no evidence whatsoever that Jesus did, in fact exist.

    You cannot provide one example because there is no one that has been tortured in that way and then put to death that has prayed for forgiveness in such a manner. Not only that no one has lived such a life and preached such forgiveness before being tortured and put to death in such a way. It's simply is not possible except for someone who is under the influence of the divine energy of the Supreme Lord, the father of Jesus.

    It is not a false assumption because no one has been tortured and put to death in that way and then asked for forgiveness for the perpetrators. It's not possible. And again, Jesus taught that, practiced it in his life prior to that, and then demonstrated by example what is the nature of divine behavior that is inspired by genuine, transcendental realization of the almighty God. I can tell you this, if you did such things to me, I would curse you to burn in hell. And if I did that to you, you would certainly not pray for me, you would hate me, that is a fact.

    Now you are cooking with gas. Indeed that is the evidence that Jesus was divine. In particular the writings of Vyasa, such as the Vedanta Sutras and the Puranas, have elaborately elucidated on the nature of the Supreme Sentient Being, the Father from which everything is coming, the subordinate sentient beings, the material nature, i.e. maya shakti, and what are the symptoms of saintly persons. There have been many saintly self realized persons who have confirmed what Vyasa has stated. The behavior of Jesus is consistent with what is described in those writings as being of under the influence of the divine energy of the Supreme Lord. Those things were not known in that part of the world and Jesus took the practice of Judaism to the next level.

    Jesus preached in the area of Palestine which is part of Europe.

    Modern Jews, you may have noted, include quite a range of coloration... probably less so then, but a mid-range complexion seems likely.
    The only distinction between Jews and Arabs is (usually) their religion, and in Israel, by convention, their parent's religion.

    Ethnically, they are both Semitic peoples.

    It is equally ethnically accurate to call Jesus, for all intents and purposes, an Arab. He was just Jewish by faith.
