    Really hate this. And I can’t help wondering if the creators of this will do the same to Mohammad. Waiting for 22 Words to post that one. Truly, this is offensive and I’m sadden and outraged that 22 Words is posting this….

      I’m offended that there are people out there that think a man who was never conceived turned water to wine and later came back from the dead.

        LOL Donnie = troll fail. Just about everyone believes Jesus existed. He is even in the Roman record. You can argue his divinity all you want, but you can’t deny he was alive.

        1. Donnie says:

          I don’t deny that he lived. If you read carefully you’ll see that I said he wasn’t conceived. I should have been more clear and said he wasn’t conceived in the conventional sense (sperm + egg). My bad.

          Could point me toward a contemporary Roman source mentioning Jesus of Nazareth, diablo? Because while I’m no expert, as far as I know there aren’t any, and that all Roman references to Jesus are secondhand references to the beliefs of early Christians recorded by people who weren’t even born, much less writing, until decades after the alleged resurrection. I’m not saying his absence from contemporary records means he couldn’t have existed, but you do appear to have made an argument for his historicity that just isn’t true.

    Apparently, anyone can believe or deny whatever they want. People believe that a god (or gods) exist without proof (and no…the bible is not proof), so it seems to be all about faith.
