i wonder if anyone ever passed off a desiccated turd as a Jesus relic?  There was a whole industry for that sort of thing.

The best part about hanging around with Jesus when he had dysentery was when he turned the explosive diarrhea into delicious chocolate milk shakes.

You're asking me to read an awful lot of words about something that happened 2000 years ago when those words come from a guy who is completely unqualified to talk about anything that happened on this planet before he was about five years old...

One of my favorite miracle explanations is that Jesus loved to trip on shrooms (how he spoke to god, angels, etc.). The active ingredients in shrooms are excreted in urine which is darkly colored. Jesus created the bread by breaking up dried shrooms (look like bread). Jesus created wine by staining water with his dark urine. Everyone was tripping balls, so they weren't hungry.

At least from a religion standpoint, the article is pretty reasonable.
Christian or not (I'm not), most of the story of Jesus is a lot more interesting, poignant, and morally relevant if people consider Jesus as the prosaic, vulnerable human he was, not some snow-white beneficent angel.

If Jesus was gay to, I'd bet he had something that would plug him up nicely.

So that Christian believes that Jesus could raise Lazarus from the dead and save himself from crucifixion at any point but couldn't cure his own illnesses. I'd say that is blasphemy in the Christian faith.

Don't only Catholics believe that Jesus is God? I was raised as a non-denominational Protestant and attended a Baptist church, where it was made clear that he was meant to be the son of God, almost like a prince regent.

Are there Protestant sects who believe the two are synonymous?

Putting aside the rather lurid dysentery angle, the rest of the article demonstrates someone who has actually read the gospels, and not just skimmed over them.

That puts him in the 0.1%.  Based on my experience anyway.

There's more evidence for a historical Jesus than an historical Zeus... Whether he was divine or not, you can make a credible argument an individual named Jesus existed.

Allen. The end.    [TotalFark]  
That article was SO VERY badly written. I'll not get into a whole "Jesus v. Whatever" argument because there is no need...but look at this, FTA:

The brilliance of Christianity is the image of a God, named Jesus, arrived with dirty hands.

What? OK; so perhaps an editor could have remedied this little overlooking of basic English diction. Then, we are given this:

FTA: "Jesus came in a time period when Greco-Roman gods were housed in gigantic temples and portrayed with superhuman powers and with superhuman physiques. Gods were believed to be far away from people on their mountains or hemmed up in their sanctuaries."

This is completely untrue. Every Roman citizen had at least one temple or shrine in their homes to pay specific regard to individual dieties. The completely...well, made-up idea that Roman and Greek gods and goddesses were viewed as distant is completely ridiculous. I mean, look - there's Mount Olympus right there! Hell, half of the gods can't go a week without molesting a mere mortal! This man is a christer who is twisting history and sociology to fit his own desires.

The Judeo-Christian God is pretty big on cleanliness, both ritual and physical. The technology of the time obviously limited what one could do compared to today; Jesus had no Sonicare, no antibacterial soap, and (probably) no clue what a loofah was. But he probably still had better personal hygiene than half the Politics tab.

I'm intrigued that water poured through the red heifer's ashes was used in purifying rituals. That sounds close to the process for producing lye.
