You have a bit of learning to do too, my friend

Your first statement is a fallacy called "fallacy ad populum". Just because a larger group of people think something, doesn't mean it is true. Atlas Shrugged is second only to the Bible - does that mean it is true? No, it is still fiction. An overwhelming majority of Americans believe that their W2 Income Tax deduction pays for roads, and schools, etc.... You and I know that it all goes to the owners of the FED.

You second attempt is a fallacy of correlation. Just because, you claim , a group of Jews in the first century began new religious teachings and behavior, that doesn't mean that Jesus existed. If that was the case, then almost every other religion would be true as well. And, if you were to be honest, it wasn't 'sudden'. The first Gospel was written 70 years after Jesus was supposedly executed. It was 300 years before there were large groups of Christians. (And, why didn't Jesus ever learn to read or write? - No one ever has that answer)

The same change in thinking about resurrection and the end times happened after the identical man-god stories began with Osirus in Egypt, Dionysis in Greece, and Mythra in Persia, just to name a few.

"In the beginning of a change the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot."--Mark Twain
