Do You Believe In The Cruxifiction?

Personally, I do. As for the resurrection, that's a different matter.

Re: Do You Believe In The Cruxifiction?

It's not a matter of "believing" or not. There is no evidence for it so it seems unlikely. Still as long as fat kids gets lots of chocolate this weekend its not important.

Re: Do You Believe In The Cruxifiction?

I disagree, there is quite a bit of historical evidence. More so than for any other part of Jesus' life.

'i've got a cat named easter
he says will you ever learn
you're just an empty cage girl if you kill the bird,

i've been looking for a saviour in these dirty streets
looking for a saviour beneath these dirty sheets
i've been raising up my hands, drive another nail in
i've got enough guilt to start my own religion'

Re: Do You Believe In The Cruxifiction?

I don't know if I'd describe the cruxifiction as a fairy tale. Have you seen The Passion Of The Christ? More like a nightmare.

I believe it all! It's called faith.

Hahaha, so true. I haven't seen that movie because I don't want to contribute to continual existance of the nasty entity known as Mel Gibson. I've seen some clips and it looks like a total gore feast which is much more disturbing than any other thing on tv the xtian groups protest about including gay kisses and swearing.

Re: Do You Believe In The Cruxifiction?

I am making a very clear distiction here. I'm not saying I think he was the son of god, or that he came back to life; but I do believe he was cruxified.

Yeah but who really cares that some random irritating Jew was bumped off 2000 years ago. Lots of people were cruxified, why should we take a special interest in someone who it may or may not have happened to?

Well the stole most of the holidys for the pagans so we would probably have got them anyway. Still I guess we do get chocolate eggs because of the fairytale so all is good.

Well, he did have something of a following. He may have just been a charlatan, but if he wasn't more significant than others who got bumped off, the story wouldn't have survived.

He also may not even have existed either but thats besides the point. Lots of stories from history about mythical/near-mythical figures have survived, does that mean we have take them as truth too and base our lives on them and attempt to compel others to do the same?
