But it is a believe based upon evidence, not on some ignorant, illiterate uneducated drugged-out shepherd's plagiarized writings from thousands of years ago.
Why should I assign any more veracity to the Christian Bible than to the teachings of Scientology or of the Flying Spaghetti Monster?
There is zero known written record of Jesus Christ that was recorded when he allegedly lived. The earliest known writings about this character were written about 300 years after his supposed life.
Q: How much would we know about the Pilgrims of Plymouth if nothing had been written about them?
A: Almost nothing.
Oral histories are notoriously inaccurate and unreliable and for the first 300 years, that is all that exists and even that is incongruous.
I have listened to many "debates" by Christian "scholars" and atheists and the educated atheists ALWAYS eat the lunch of the Christians. It is not even close.
In a free society, people are allowed to believe in the Easter Bunny, Paul Bunyan, Jesus Christ and the Tooth Fairy. However smart people realize that "believing" in something that is imaginary and not true cannot make it real and true. If that were not the case, I would bet there would be a very good chance that Santa would become real.
