I think I saw some Book of Mormon quotes having to do w/ fair skin, and have been thinking a lot about how the average christian really thinks Jesus, if he existed, looks like those pictures hanging in their church. Also, I use a jehovah's witnesses flyer showing a well-groomed, very white Jesus as a bookmark on my atheist/skeptic type books, keeping this in the forefront of my thoughts.
So, I was hoping my friends here can give me a better view into what he would really have looked like if he existed. Are there any anthropology types out there who can point me to the facts? How dark would he have been? Would he have looked more like Osama bin Laden? Or Mitt Romney? President Obama?
And, to fuel the fun even more, help point to the quotes by the religious people or books (such as BoM), showing that they have misconceptions about skin color.
(if this would have fit well w/ one of the forum posts, rather than a blog, please point that out for me, but wasn't sure if I could get a better response in one of them.)
