    I thought Jesus was a clone. Like Dolly the sheep, but imaginary.

    It depends on which Christian sect. While most protestant sects practice symbolic cannibalism of their god during their eucharist, the official Roman Catholic Church accepts transubstantiation as a reality. So the RCC practices actual (by their accepted canon) cannibalism of their god as they believe the bread and wine is magically transformed (a miracle) into the actual blood and body of Jesus during the ritual of the eucharist.

    I find Christians embracing cannibalism (either real or symbolic) to be rather odd.
    Cannabilistic rituals make me itch.....

    In addition, you claim, “I'm back to help you learn how to be a Christian. ”

    Can you explain how you think you know you are qualified for this task? Are you able to name the correct way to be a christian enough to have agreement from all other christians that you’re doing it right?

    Well, we have the 4 gospels accounts of the supposed resurrection and Acts, which all totally contradict each other. Obvious bullshit. But the Christians don't seem to be able to understand that this is all bad mythology. Christ repeatedly tells his followers the end of the world and the coming of the kingdom of God is to come soon, very soon. "Some standing here will not taste of death..." Didn't happen. Two contradictory infant narratives. Christianity is organized cluelessness.

    You're wasting your time, son. Bawling bullshit like a deranged street preacher won't cut the mustard.

    Hi 1I. I remember you from SC, where I was known as SoHy. I think you are a well meaning person, but you're not going to be able to convince any of us to become Christians. Many of us were formerly Christians. I was a Christian until around the age of 18, until attending a fundamentalist Christian college. It really opened my eyes to a lot of things and started me on my journey to atheism. Why would any god, if such an entity actually existed, care what people believed? That is one of the nuttiest things about Christianity, imo. If there was a god, I'm sure she would judge us by our actions, and not by the things that we believe or don't believe. Or maybe she wouldn't judge us at all. We humans already have a bad habit of judging each other. I try not to do that, although I'm not always successful.

    I'm now an older adult living a very blissful, happy life in retirement. Christianity can't do a thing for me, although I have many Christian friends that I love. I love them because they are kind, loving and tolerant, not because they are Christians, and sadly I can't say that all Christians are as good or tolerant like my friends. They don't care that I'm not a Christian. They don't preach to me and I don't try to persuade them to abandon their beliefs. To me, that should be the goal for all humans. What we believe isn't important, it's how we act and treat other people that matters. So, I will not engage you in an argument, but it's nice to know that you're doing okay and you decided to join TFT.

    I think he wants to tell us about his god. But he hasn't said anything remotely original yet - I think he is reading from a script.
    Too waffly. Doesn't get to the point. Not any coherent argument
