    If I see a public poll that asks a question that has no answers I either: 1) skip it or 2) post a simple answer and move on.

    And yet assuming you voted, you voted NO.
    You are illogical.

    Jesus Christ is a story - a myth.

    Like Hercules and Superman, he was the son of Gods sent to earth to save us...

    The Gospels contain great truths about the nature of man and morality. And reading and study them can be of great benefit to anyone who does so. We can learn how to lead better lives.

    But the stories of Jesus are an composite of stories from mythologies pre-dating Christianity.

    I agree with everything you just said, too bad we are in the minority.

    It is not representative of the test group if some don't answer because they have no option. It is a bad poll if it is meant for all. It is a poll for the religious without changing the context of the question.

    If all of these faith based belief systems stem from very ancient times, maybe they know something we don't. I'm not saying I believe Jesus will walk the earth, but... things are looking bleak around the world right now. It does feel like an end time to me, and based on my travels I think things will boil over soon.

    I'm not so sure I buy into the idea of a messiah, but if it's true, then the question is not if one will come, but instead it is: when will be our "darkest hour"? Next year? 50 years? 100 years?
    Or maybe making threats of eternal damnation or promises of eternal paradise is just emotional manipulation effective for recruiting new followers. An accidental or perhaps intentional early form of marketing.

    If you believe in the Supernatural then you can become a millionaire!

    Questioning or criticizing another's core beliefs is inadvertently perceived as offensive and rude.

    Hmmm. My experience is those making threats and such promises are themselves weak of faith. Not using it as a tool to gain recruits, but to bolster their own failing faith.

    I kinda of doubt this was intended to be a scientific study.
