Re: the truth
A slap in the face of god? Well, if that's your perception. I'm curious why religion is divided upon cultural and geographic lines?
I mean, anyone born in Africa is presumed muslim, in Europe, North America, or Australia, they'r mostly (if not all) christian. If theyr born in Asia, their Buddhist. If someone is born in India, they'r hindu. If someone is born in mediterranean europe or latin America their roman catholic. It seems to me it's more about cultural identity than real belief. Personally, I have a hard time believing some story of a man who heeled the blind with a wave of the hand, or parted the red sea, or turned sticks to snakes, etc. I think stuff like this can be easier explained by advanced technology. And the "virgin birth".... Alien obduction and test tube pregnancy. It makes more since, scientifically.
