I think Jesus really did exist as an enlightened teacher

every religion had someone who reached enlightenment and then taught it to others. Then men created churches and began concealing these teachings in their esoteric knowledge, they then created exoteric traditions that many today worship rather than the original teachings themselves and they spend more time reciting passages from a book rather than living and inspiring others with it.

I'm glad to see we are approaching a time where science and faith finally remerge.
