    Well religion has definitely morphed into something along those lines in a lot of ways, but I think it would be cynical to assume that the original message held that intent.

    I personally would like it if Jesus were somehow revived and walked the earth again. Maybe then many Christians of the world and all their varied sects could learn what the love of Christ actually means, and would stop their hateful ways towards other human beings. I would wish the same for Muslims and Jews, and their appropriate prophets.

    I believe that if Jesus was coming we would sense it. I think he would let us know somehow and we would just know it.

    Hrm.. Lets use the same format only a different line of questioning.

    Capitalism will fail before or after you die?

    1 before
    2 after

    EDIT: Even better.. Satan will defeat God before or after you die?

    I see the answer no as containing the possibility of never, making it acceptable to those who think he will not return for whatever reason (like him not existing, if that is your belief). Its all in how you read it.

    Also, I am going to go with before, given the current recession we are in.

    Do you deny that jesus was an apocalyptical preacher? That the early christians and even current day believers anticipate an imminent arrival?

    History is ripe with writings of christians in anticipation of the imminant return of jesus and with the apocalypse.

    Doomsday prophesying was old hat even by Jesus' time.

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

    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?

    According to my buddy Joel, the end-times and just around the bend. We're talking days/weeks/months here. He told me the oil-well blow-out punctured the planet in a way that will cause our demise. First, if I understood him correctly, the puncture will cause massive escape of both gasses and liquids that will create this HUGE void just below the ocean floor that will be gigantic in proportion. When the floor collapses into that void (think sink-hole,) a massive tsunami, never seen before of that magnitude will wipe out the entire Gulf of Mexico region sinking Florida. Then the methane will fill the atmosphere to lethal levels.

    It is also worth mentioning that Joel claims to have gotten this intel from 2 reliable sources withing the government and one in the oil-industry. Joel is a brainiac too and I watched him become a millionaire in less than ten years. But I don't think he is very religious at all.

    But I am not worried. I still have my plastic and duct tape.

    Jesus wasn't here in the first place so why should he come again?

    Other than some questionable lines by Josephus and a book of myths there really is no historical record of Jesus Christ.
