“Who were the women who visited Jesus tomb?

Matthew 28:01 says: Mary Magdalene and the other Mary.
Mark 16:1 says: Mary Magdalene, the mother of James and Salome.
Luke 24:10 says: Mary Magdalene, Joanna, Mary the mother of James, and other women.
John 20:1 says: Mary Magdalene.”

    For the whole body of christ/blood thing who is to say they all didn’t visit his tomb and dined on what was left?

    Sure would answer a lot of questions like how the body really disappeared, why they say that silly crap when they eat crackers and drink wine, et cetera.

    You know a lot of those religious wing nuts are cannibals. Maybe these women were cannibals for Christ?

    Now leave me alone I have to read all the evidence for the Loch Ness monster.

    Better question: Why are the only historical accounts of Jesus’ life obvious interpolations (or forgeries, if you’re feeling less academically charitable)?

    And … Christians have the audacity to argue there are no contradictions in the Bible and then wonder why there are so many Atheist declaring themselves as such. The Romans kept impeccable records … why isn’t there evidence of Jesus and his execution there? Perhaps it is because he nor magical sky fairies existed to begin with

  4. The Heretic Says:

    Ritualistic cannibalism predates Christianity by thousands of years. It is weird that modern day Catholics still use this symbolism in their rituals. But I wouldn’t have found it strange that they may have engaged in it 2000 years ago, when the world was still full of pagan influence. What does occur to me as strange is that you seem stuck on it and denounce all Christians based on something that doesn’t ritualistically exist anymore other than in its symbolic form. Their are plenty of things to criticize religion about – I find this one to be distasteful (no pun intended.)

    Dutton – you are correct. There are contradictions all throughout the Bible. And there is no Roman record of Jesus’ execution. They (Christians – among others) build their faith on a house of cards that fell long ago. You would think that they would notice.

    Mark was the first gospel written… and it says NOTHING of anyone visiting, or an empty tomb, or Jesus rising from the dead, or hanging out with people after he had died. It looks like RCC added all the supernatural crap in the NT around the 4th Century AD (Source: Bart Ehrman)
