Most people come to religion through indoctrination, then stay because of fear. That's hardly noble.

I met alot of people who practice religion not so much out of fear but because they believe they are becoming more caring because of it and less egotistical. And because of such perfect improvement they believe that there is a God.

So cut out the middle man and do all that because you want to be a better human. That's what some atheists do.

Murder implies that a) there was an actual Jesus, and b) what the story tells us about him is actually true.

Now we know that b) is false because for the offence he was supposedly killed for according to the bible, crucifiction isn't the proscribed punsihment. Crucifiction was a punishment under Roman law reserved for traitors or rebels against Rome. Jesus in the bible was a subject of the Iudaean crown, and convicted under sanhedric (jewish religious) law, which mandated that either he be hanged or stoned. And as Iudaea was a client state of Rome and not part of Rome proper, the Roman authorities wouldn't have stepped in to impose their death penalty on local law which proscribed a different death penalty.

Well that's something I haven't seen. Thanks!

There are more than four holes in that story.

And there is the problem.  It's just a story.  A stupid, fucking, story.

When you find evidence that it is true kindly submit it for review.
