Who is Jesus?

Jesus is one third of a trinity of three gods (1) who came to earth in human form but now lives in the sky, simultaneously reads your mind and the mind of every other person on earth, controls every molecule of the universe, and wants you to believe in him and dedicate your life to him but he won't provide a shred of evidence that he or anything else supernatural exists.

Jesus hid from Roman soldiers like a common criminal (2), was put to death like a common criminal, never personally wrote a single word of the bible or any other document, supposedly came back to life after being executed though only a few people "saw" him (and each of the accounts of the supposed eye-witnesses to his supposed resurrection contradict each other in the bible) before he disappeared permanently, and his death was for your benefit. Oh, and one more thing, if you find it difficult to believe in this ridiculous nonsense without even a little evidence then you will suffer eternal torture.

NOTE (1): The christian nuts believe there is a trinity of 3 gods, the son, the father and the holy ghost. But they also believe that all three distinct parts make a single whole god. This makes no sense because the religion as a whole makes no sense. Trying to find meaning or sense in the bible is futile - less productive than trying to find sense in one of David Lynch's wackier movies.

NOTE (2): Obviously he was hiding, otherwise, why did Judas have to "betray" him before the Romans could find him? Yet the religious nuts like to believe that Jesus purposely came to the earth in human form for the specific purpose of dying for humanity's sins.

Here are some good quotes regarding religion:
Gloria Steinem
It's an incredible con job when you think of it, to believe something now in exchange for life after death. Even corporations with all their reward systems don't try to make it posthumous.

Robert Ingersoll
Ministers say that they teach charity. That is natural. They live on hand-outs. All beggars teach that others should give.

Mark Twain
It is best to read the weather forecast before praying for rain.


Here is what James Randi has to say about religion:
... some 2,000 years ago a mid-East virgin was impregnated by a ghost of some sort, and as a result produced a son who could walk on water, raise the dead, turn water into wine, and multiply loaves of bread and fishes. All that was in addition to tossing out demons. He expected and accepted a brutal, sadistic, death — and then he rose from the dead.

There was much, much, more. Adam and Eve, they said, were the original humans, plunked down in a garden to start our species going. But I didn't understand, and still don't, that they had only two children, both sons — and one of them killed the other — yet somehow they produced enough people to populate the Earth, without incest, which was a big no-no! Then some prophet or other made the Earth stop turning, an army blew horns until a wall fell down, a guy named Moses made the Red Sea divide in two, and made frogs fall out of the sky….

I needn't go on. And that's only a small start on one religion! The Wizard of Oz is more believable. And more fun.
