    Never let the truth get in the way of a good story.

    Unfortunately this one appropriately describes some people I know very well. Their responses have never been comprehensible to me. :-/

    John, Thanks for the Mark Twain-ism. I wonder if Mathew, Mark and Luke would agree? OH, right, they told pretty much the same story, didn’t they.

    Yeah, they all manufactured similar rumors 50 – 200 years after the incident.

    I never understand the religi-Os and biblical credibility problem. Otherwise reasonable people will accept this improbability even if it is showing the warts of impossibility instead of the simple and obvious reality that it is just a narrative among others written by frightened tribal primitives.

    False content puts it mildly. the bible contains absurd content. If it weren’t so darn sad the bible might be the friggen best comedy ever put to pen. Only an idiot could be a christian after reading the bible. I mean WOW! Who in their right mind could think the bible was anything other than fantasy?

    I remember reading somewhere that if you say something totally insane with complete confidence some people will believe what you are talking about. I don’t want to believe anyone would be so dumb to actually take the bible seriously at all. It is nothing but a poorly put together, rambling rehash of ghost stories, told by nervous ancients. Just pure drivel!
