Quote# 2438

Christianity would have never succeeded had the New Testament been fictional, you don't see 2 billion people running around worshipping Shakespeare, arguably the best fictional writer in history.

You see billions of people running around following Islam, something you consider \"fiction.\"

That's because Shakespeare never tried to start a religion

Just because it says it's truth (agenda) and you're to follow and believe it.

Shakespeare wasn't trying to create a religion (too bad) if he had... well gosh knows what could have happened.

that's because Shakespeare never asked to be worshiped. Which is kinda too bad because Shakespeare told more awesome stories then the potheads that wrote the Bible.

Also, a lot of idiots think L. Ron Hubbard was a Prophet because he wrote some whacked out crap about an alien overlord blowing up a whole lot of other aliens and their ghosts attaching themselves to people and said it was true.

...2 billion people running around worshipping...

All at once? Wow.

However, if 2 billion worship Allah, is a different story whatsoever.

It may not be 2 billion, but every single literature teacher from the high school level up wants to talk to you.

I read about the afterlife

No but I see a hell of a lot of people worshipping Gods you claim are false. So apparently fictional religions do have staying power.

The forgers were still adding chapters to Mark as late as 400CE.

Every single religion is fiction.

And yet you believe all the other major religions of all other cultures ever to be fiction, and yet they were believed as the absolute truth by many, many people just as much as you believe in the Bible. And they ARE real, most of them are sitting down here with me, and they are not happy.
