Well, I guess you can’t refer to the alleged, reanimated, walking/talking, broiled-fish-eating, dead body of Jesus as a “zombie” on Theology Web, the Christian forum on which I and “Nick the Christian” were having a debate. Here are my blasphemous censored comments along with the Christian moderator, “CP” ‘s, reprimand:
Gary: So what! Someone could do a peer reviewed article on the human-sacrifice practices of the ancient Mayans! That doesn’t mean that members of the peer review board believe that human sacrifices really do appease Mayan gods.
Just admit it Nick. The “evidence” for your supernatural, first century • Edited by a Moderator • story is pathetic. It isn’t even good enough to make it into a high school history textbook.
….Skeptics have been debating Christians for two millennia using historical data and philosophical theory, and what good has it done??
I believe that modern society has advanced to the point that belief in flying witches, spell-casting warlocks, and their equivalents, should only be things seen and believed in the movies. It is time to expose ALL superstitions for the silly fantasies that they are. • Edited by a Moderator •”

However, in this modern, highly educated, technologically advanced world, you can still get yourself killed for drawing a cartoon of a Muslim prophet. And, you can get your speech censored on an internet forum for describing the alleged reanimated body of the Christian prophet, Jesus, as a zombie.
That is censorship, folks. That is not free speech.
This situation exposes the dangers of conservative theism; Christian, Muslim, or otherwise. “Blasphemy” should not be a crime in our modern world! Using vulgar, sexually explicit speech, or speech endorsing violence against other peaceful, law abiding people should not be tolerated, but “blasphemy”??
This is why I, Richard Dawkins, Sam Harris, and other non-theists speak out against conservative religion. It is a danger to liberty and freedom for ALL.
Lastly, I ended my debate with Nick on Theology Web with one point that every conservative Christian should seriously consider: If the evidence for the historicity of the bodily resurrection of Jesus is so good, as Nick and other Christian apologists claim, then why is it that NOT ONE public university on the planet includes the resurrection of Jesus in their world history textbooks as an historical event?
