Its a lot easier to have that thought an belief at 19, but when you get to seeing 69 on the horizon, you a lot closer to finding out for sure.
Well, I'll definitely think I'm closer to knowing, when in reality I probably won't be. But we'll see.
When they found out the world was no longer flat, did that change the story of Jesus?
No, it didn't.
But it did change their story.
I think that it's entirely possible that Jesus was a real person who did good for the world while he was here and his life was taken out of perspective by his "disciples" when he died. But the message that the bible, especially old testament, preaches isn't always a good one.
"George Bush says he speaks to god every day, and christians love him for it. If George Bush said he spoke to god through his hair dryer, they would think he was mad. I fail to see how the addition of a hair dryer makes it any more absurd."
