Subject: RE: BS: Book of Judas
If I may paraphrase Jesus, "the gullible will always be with us". ;-)

If they weren't buying religion, they'd be buying soft drinks, sunscreen, viagra, an illegal war, or diet drinks.

You're not in this to help the gullible! You're just in it to push your own favorite point of view, bobad. Admit it.

There are lots of things that CAN'T be proven right now (like whether Jesus existed or not), may never be provable, and they are entirely worth discussing, regardless. To discuss them favorably does not necessarily indicate that one believes in the Rapture, the immaculate conception, eternal hellfire, or various other strange stuff like that which is believed by some christians (and not all of them by any means).

Your mistake, I think, is to assume that "religious people" are all, unlike you, thoroughly gullible and easily misled. Ha! If only life were that simple.
