>>What's this "unfortunately for you" garbage? Rather antagonistic, aren't you?<<

No, like Brian suggested, I take pity on you. It grieves me when folk abandon their intellect to follow delusions.

"The "sacrificial" nature of Jesus' death was formulated after-the-fact by his followers, perhaps to assuage their guilt over having abandoned Jesus during his passion and horrible, completely unexpected crucifixion. "

I don't think it was guilt; I think it was PR spin to keep the cult growing even after the main guy was gone.

>>This is as convincing as an email from a Nigerian prince offering me millions if I help him with a difficult banking transaction.<<

Only millions? I got one offering hundreds of millions, and there was no way I could pass that up. I can't wait to get my payout, which shouldn't be long now. You can always trust stuff written by anonymous guys, promising huge payouts sometime in the future. Any Christian will vouch for that.

If it was "PR spin," then the followers of Jesus were extremely poor spinmeisters. Their initial target-audience was their fellow Jews, and the notion of a "sacrificial" crucifixion was a "stumbling block."

So in other words, because Celsus says so?

No, actually the Bible says so.

The Bible being authoritative is part of "Celsus says so".

Joe, if you feel that Celsus has misrepresented or (I love this) misinterpreted the Bible, feel free to provide examples. I'm sure you can enlighten us with your Biblical scholarship. Simply complaining seems quite impotent to me.

Thank you. <curtsys> I chose my words carefully.

You're welcome and I'll take this opportunity to correct you: I did not invoke the ad hominem logical fallacy. I didn't say that you were wrong due to some perceived lack of manhood on your part. I challenged you to support your contention that Celsus has misinterpreted the Bible. I see you passed on that challenge.

Allow me to correct you again: although Celsus (NOT Census) did use the term "I propose" for each of his points, he supported those points with references to the Bible as evidence. You took issue with that, complaining that "Celsus has decided that the Bible says, without much consideration for context, historical or otherwise." I offered you the opportunity to support your impotent complaint with facts. You seem to have decided that you were unable to meet that challenge. You are content to restrict yourself to generalizations when you made specific accusations. That's fine. I'll disregard your entire post as the impotent grumblings of an Internet malcontent.

M_S: You're in overdrive today. I translate that as referring to an ***Internutter***

"Internutter" works for me!

what needs to be created? We have much more plausible ideas than the necessity of a primitive concept of a god-like being or 'spirit'.

Celsus, I think that you are right about Origen, but could you post some reference to this.

Since I believed you about him, our beloved Birut said I was a liar to say anyone had cut off anything.

I am pretty sure you are correct, but I will apologize to Birut if it is not true.

Best Wishes,
Shaamba Kaambwaat

It's true, but I'm not the least surprised Birutegal is ignorant of the fact.
