Regarding all the theologians and historians who wrote about Jesus?
Tacitus, Josephus, St. Paul, etc. were born many years after Jesus was allegedly crucified – that is, when the mythological figure of Jesus had already been sufficiently culturally shaped to be credible.
And, the gospels were anonymous, and authorship was attributed to them late in the 2nd century on the basis of their content, but none of them met Jesus first-handedly, of course – that’s because there was never any Jesus to meet in the first place.
Why, exactly, do Christians mention these people and expect to be taken seriously?
Because–on Y!A at least–most Christians are of a fundamentalist variety and have no clue about the historical method in general, or even who those historian were and when they lived.
Oh, yeah, and their confirmation bias pwns them completely.
@beta phishy: There are plenty of folktales that are not based in reality; many of which are blieved to be trie. What’s more, I, for one, do not claim that there never was such a person at all. There may very well have been one; but he certainly was not God, did not perform miracles, or rise from the dead; and it is even possible he was not crucified at all.
@Sinus Regenerated: Wouldn’t the plurar of “Jesus” be “Jesi”?
Will the ACTA movement cause chaos all over the world if it happens?
If some one is holding pirated files on their computer they will have full authority to disable internet acces to that person.
Every one in the internet has pirated content in their computers by just buying one, getting internet acces and going into a site and bam! You no longer have internet acces.
Madness WILL consume this planet if the ACTA movement happens. Spread the word to every one!
For we are Legion! We are One! We are Legion! We do not forgive. We do not forget!
We are Anonymous! Expect us!
