About Me:
I was brought up a Catholic and have also had exposure to many churches and creeds within Xtianity. I examined all of them. As I read the original Jesus Seminar and the work of Marcus Borg and others, I began to seriously doubt. After years of study, I concluded that Jesus probably did not exist in history and if he did...he was a Jewish "teacher" , an Essene as described by the Dead Sea Scrolls.

Why you left your religion.
The religion is contradictory and requires a person to shut off and ignore their intellect to maintain a literal perspective. The bible is ridiculous and its claims are absurd. People in Western cultures are generally brainwashed to believe aspects of it unconsciously. It is assumed in pop culture that a Jesus existed even though there is not 1 shred of contemporaneous attestation.

Welcome to TA Robert. The existence of Jesus is a fun discussion. We've had a few (one where I'm beaten into submission) but we are always up for more! You could write a blog about it, or go into the Forums and then people can respond to each other's points. Glad to have you here!
