Christ is not real. He was a stolen story. This thread at its very basic level is inaccurate.

How so?

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 22070412

Because the same stories/characteristics attributed to Jesus had already existed and were applied to previous 'messiahs'/'God(s)'/Deities from religions/mythology that predated the alleged time of Jesus Christ. The virgin birth, having exactly 12 helpers/desciples, performing miracles, the crucifixion & resurrection. These were not novel or unique concepts that only surfaced 2000 years ago based on actual historical events, but a reimplementation of traditional concepts from preexisting cultures & belief systems. This is the way society evolves, by reinventing and working with what has been known/practiced/understood by cultures of the past.

The issue with trying to have an objective discussion about this subject matter without invoking emotional responses, is that some, through belief, have sold the perceived sanctity or well-being of their spirit/soul on these stories. To consider that they were not based on historical events - it can be perceived as a threat to one's well-being, to one's soul. I don't feel it should be this way but I understand the circumstances. Everyone's understanding of the 'truth' can only be viewed from the context of one's own conscious evolution, and what is considered to be the 'truth' will change/adapt/conform to one's progression on that journey. It's for that reason that it is always important to practice an open mind and never invest/commit oneself too heavily in any particular 'version' of the 'truth'.
