Have you noticed that Jesus is the only one (to hedge against a history full of igonorance and bunch of creepy historians I’d say at least the most celebrated one) in the history that has a suspicious birth and death both?!
Now, that’s what I call unnecessary divine complications!
I have a hunch that all this hoopla came about because those who came a couple of centuries after him and tried to mold Christianity in to a religion and convenience the gullible that Jesus was god himself had problem explaining even to the credulous how god can be born or die like rest of us mortals?
So they started manipulating his beginning/birth and his end/death. It’s common among religions to prefer a one way canal of birth (virgin birth) as there is something dirty about sex. Having god as a by product of a race among bunch of sperms does not sound very godly!!
On the other end, death, that is having a god who hopelessly dies and deteriorates is going to be a hard sell too even to the Gullible. So what they did they shrouded his birth and death with mysteries in order to make him god alright! Ofcourse so goes with the issue of him having an offspring (See the movie The Da vinci code).
Now, since Jesus was obviously living among humans and walking and eating with them it’s quite likely that one day he was struck with diarrhea (Eshaal)! Just imaging god having diarrhea!! Oh my GOD!! That is admittedly more demeaning than being born due to sexual intercourse or having a child due to sex or dying and deteriorating.
So I wonder what would scholars like Thomas Aquinas and rest have said about such terrible incidents? Save diarrhea, just image of god having to go to bathroom and take “holy crap” everyday! That is bad enough to disgust the true believers away! But ofcourse what is presented today nowadays is just a mythical figure.
Oh, humans! The most gullible of species! P.S. That I keep separate from respect I have for good deeds and intentions of millions of followers of Christianity throughout the world. I hope one day they reexamine what they are told as a child and see the facts as they are.
