A while back , I was invited to join a bible study group at my apartment building. I courteously declined the invitation with the comment that I had already read that book. For me to be expected to accept as fact statements made from it is like someone reading to me from a comic book to prove the existence of Superman. I have read biographies on the founder of Xianity - Emperor Constantine, at Nicaea, 325CE. He convened it, he dominated it & he called for an accord of all the folklore, mythology fables & fairy tales from all over the Middle East & India, spanning over five centuries. His plan was for a new god under which he could unite his sprawling, decaying Empire. He instructed his council : Make it to astonish. Didn't save his empire, but he did succeed in creating a new religion which is only now beginning to crumble. What a pity they don't teach it's ORIGINS. There is nothing new in xinsanity, it's just a sloppy compilation / mish-mash of mythology. One has to wonder how they got it off the ground, given it's absurdities & contradictiions.
