the bible is a fable, nothing more, nothing less. take for example the myth of creation; the world wasn't made in 7 days - the universe (and earth) was created via the big bang and humans came about through EVOLUTION.


seriously, jesus was nothing more than the best cult leader this world has ever seen.
