Maybe because he never existed? Or he is not the claimed "son of God?" Since the writings of the bible were handed down for generations before being written, then factor in translations, versions (king james version), etc, I think the bible is exactly like the game of Telephone. The only rule I go by is the golden rule. The rest is folklore and smoke and mirrors. ================= I am always amazed that when religion is met head on by common sense, history, and the game of telephone, that I get thumbs down. Remember, Bush said that God told him invading Iraq was a good idea. Bin Laden claims terrorism is Gods idea. As I said, I am amazed that people can't understand the duplicity and contridictions of religion. Therefore, I have one religion, the golden rule. Here is the kicker, that rule is exactly what God wants. The rest of the rules falls into place. And the world lives in peace. =================== Peace Jim .
