If Jesus was ever found it would destroy Christianity. he was supposed to be raised into heaven.

Claudia, I was raised Catholic, so I still curse like one. I picked that up, even if I never absorbed any of the religion. I say 'Christ' all the time.

I added your quote, what exactly did you mean?

Hi Claudia,

"because clearly everyone knows exactly who Jesus is" Please tell us more. The rest of your post seems to be the blind trying to lead the sighted?

Sorry I don’t know all of acts, I played hooky at work and tried to googol “John/Acts” I got a virtuous Jew and a Roman Centurion - possible Johns in haste?

Anyway, I already commented on Paul, he cannot be used to show an Historical Jesus. The case for Myth is not conclusive, so there is plenty of room for debate. I just have come down on the side that I think fits the (lack) of evidence best.

Dr. Meaden - Fascinating point, for me at least. Just a few days ago I thought I had made up the word "atheologist", then you replied back with some great information. And today I was reading John Shook's new book "The God Debates" (which he signed for me the other night in DC) and on page 13 he talks about this: "Atheology is the intellectual effort to explain why a worldview should not include any god."

Interesting book so far!

VR,
Tony
