@edgarblythe,
I have always liked Occam's Razor as the deliberative choice in determining whether a philosophical point makes any sense. I think it should be applied to religions, specifically, in this instance, Christianity.

I find it hard to believe, particularly in the absence of proof, that Christianity is nothing more than a cult. Can you imagine the absurdity of a god impregnating a human woman. Impregnation is an event normally restricted to humans or lower forms of animal life. Why would a god engage in such behavior? First, consider it from a scientific viewpoint when we know how DNA is passed. Jesus would have had a god's XX or XY chromosome, whether a woman or man, respectively, and he would have had Mary's, his supposed Earthly mother's chromosome which, we know would have been XX. The conclusion we reach is that Jesus would have to be the product of an XY and XX chromosome, the XY deriving from god and the XX from Mary.

But why would god have to be male. I think it is unlikely that if there were a god, he would have to be male and have the XY chromosome which, if Jesus actually existed, would have to have been passed on to Jesus by his father. We have just anthropomorphized god, and in doing so, we have subjected him to all the frailties, vicissitudes and vagaries which mankind suffers.

Why would a god have to use such a pedestrian and predictable method of "recreating" his son on Earth. It is patently absurd.

Funny, that is exactly the same thing that the Bible says happened.

But I think you are not taking the concept of God seriously enough. You are creating your own artificially handicapped God in order to easily skewer the silly thing. If we can coax a complete animal to be born from a skin cell (remember Dolly the sheep?) do you really think it’s any great trick for a God who presumably created the universe to manipulate the chromosomes of an egg cell in any way he wanted?

@edgarblythe,
The baby alligator and the offer to wear a wire to set Jesus up are the highlights of the story. Oh, that and getting the tickets from Stevie from behind the KFC.

Years ago I knew a gentleman who said that he frequently made trips to Mars. He thought the women on Mars had it all over Earth women.

He was very reasonable about it. When a nurse was talking to him and asked if he realized that she, and others didn’t believe he went to Mars, he said that was quite all right, he understood why others didn’t believe it, and that was fine.

He was a man of his convictions, but didn’t push his beliefs on others. Refreshing.

@chai2,
These kind of people are generally harmless and not a bad sort.
