Hey, World: My Dead Brother is a God, Ruler of the Universe!

Nuts and Diabetes

Imagine if someone today claims that his brother is a god. You would think he is nuts, right?

But that’s not all.

Imagine if this same person claims that his brother is not only a god, but the Creator and ruler of the universe. You would think he is nuts, right?

But that’s not all.

Imagine that this same person claims that his brother was publicly executed, buried, but three days later his dead corpse came back to life, leaving an empty grave. You would think he is nuts, right?

But that’s not all.

Imagine this same person claims that his dead brother’s back-from-the-dead corpse appeared to numerous family and friends over a course of forty days, suddenly popping in and out of locked rooms and on country roads, allowing them to poke their fingers into his execution wounds, eating broiled fish sandwiches with them, and taking long strolls with them on the sea shore. You would think he is nuts, right?

But that’s not all.

Imagine this same person claims that after forty days of making multiple appearances in multiple locations, his dead-but-back-from-the-dead brother levitated into outer space in front of a crowd, promising to one day return to conquer the world and set himself up as King of the Cosmos. You would think he is really nuts, right?

Yet one particular world religion wants us to believe that this is exactly what happened two thousand years ago in the backwaters of the Roman Empire!

How can any intelligent, educated person believe this nonsense! Are they nuts?

    1. Here is what I expect Christians to say: But if 500 eyewitnesses claimed that they all saw this resurrected guy, at the same time and place, that is sufficient evidence for any jury to decide in favor of the claimant!

      My response: Baloney. No modern court would accept as eyewitness evidence, a written claim by one religious zealot, prone to visions and other tricks of the mind, who lived 2,000 years ago, who claims that some unidentified person or persons told him that 500 people saw a walking, talking corpse. The judge would laugh and throw out the claim!

      For me personally, I don’t care if FIVE THOUSAND, uneducated, scientifically ignorant, highly superstitious peasants claim two thousand years ago or today that they saw, at one time and place, a back-from-the-dead corpse eat a broiled fish sandwich and levitate into outer space. I say this story is legendary nonsense, the product of the over-worked minds of religious fanatics!

    2. Not just “years” prinzler, but DECADES later! 😉 In fact, well over 40-70 years later and not even in the two languages Yeshua/Jesus fluently spoke! The copyists(?) could not translate Syro-Aramaic, but in no conceivable way could they ever translate Mishnaic Hebrew. So how inaccurate, how unreliable does that make the four Greek Gospels?

      Answer: VERY.
