How Christianity Started

I like this. I don’t think it’s going to change anyone’s life or anything, but I think it’s something worth pondering for a bit, if you’ve got time on your hands. You can easily dismiss it, but I would counsel you to not be so confident in your own power of dismissal. I've seen countless Christians easily dismiss the idea of evolution; much to their detriment because I think it makes them look silly. I think the number one response to something like this will be, "Religion shouldn't be judged in this way, if it works for you then that's all that matters." To that I would ask you to consider further: There is no religion that says that. All religions are truth claims--"This is the way that it is." with that in mind, where did we get the idea that religion is to be treated as a subjective, "well if it works for you" kind of notion? To say something easy like, "Well, they all have a piece of the truth," is frankly boring. Only someone who has complete knowledge could make such a statement, and last time I checked ,that ain't you.

"Jason, you've offended me." Look, there are worse things that could have happened to you today--you'll live.

Have fun!
