“To believe in any form of God requires, it is true, what Samuel Taylor Coleridge called a 'willing suspension of disbelief'; it is not especially rational to think, as so many Christians do, that a crucified Nazarene did what no other man had done before or since: rise from the dead and say that believing he had done so would wash you in the atoning blood of the lamb.”
