This has always bothered me. You see the pictures all the time. White with brown hair. The Bible takes place in the Middle East. Shouldn't Jesus be brown with black hair then? I know this started out in the Renaissance era and they romanticized everything, especially angels. Wouldn't you think that by now things would look like they're supposed to in the Bible?14 AnswersReligion & Spirituality8 years ago

We all see this question, "Prove to me that God/Jesus doesn't exist", dozens of times per day. I think it's only fair to ask the same about other gods and religions. As far as my proof goes, Odin promised to get rid of the Frost Giants. Well, I don't see any of them around. Sounds to me like Odin and Thor are more believable than God and Jesus who have promised tons of things, but haven't done any of them.22 AnswersReligion & Spirituality8 years ago
