only from the superstitious and ignorant side.
There are some who worked hard to discover the facts, and then there are those who just said "damn, its too hard", and guessed the answer.
They made it look good by calling it faith. They insult the concept of faith by such raw cheating.
It occurs to me that the whole concept of god is nothing but a cheat.
God made everything, but who made god?
The answer poses more questions than the question did. everyone knows it, some people just accept that that they have no idea and consign the answer to "Its unknowable so I'll pick the answer that makes me feel good about it". Not good enough.
Zombie Jesus who sort of came back from the dead...
Away in a graveyard, a stone overhead
The zombie lord Jesus is raised from the dead
The bones and the corpses are at his command
And rise like their master to swarm o'er the land!
The women are screaming, then running away
Poor Mary and Martha are gnawed where they lay
I fear thee, lord Jesus, your curséd undeath
With worms in your bowels and rot on your breath.
Have mercy, lord Jesus, don't eat me today
Next year I'll be bigger, I promise! I pray
Some shaman or rabbi or priestess or such
Will stake you and save us from your deadly touch.
I know Bible literalists apologists have their explanations, but they are ultimately just band aids over bull sh!t.
