    ..why will you simply not address the fact that the original christians, the gnostics were outlawed at the council of nicea..why will you not admit common historical knowledge..

    please, address that point:  why did modern, "orthodox" christians outlaw the gnostics at the council of nicea?  why won't you address whether that even happened?  what is your agenda?  you know mine.

    •  the Gnostics were outlawed by (none)
      mainline Christianity, but there were a lot of other sects that also were condemned.  Let's explore the possibility they were the original Christians.

      But the fact of the matter is that the original Christians were pious Jewish working class guys.  They weren't Gnostics.  They weren't Arians.  They were Jews who continued to worship in the synagogue until 85 when they were effectively ejected from the synagogue.

      •  Well.. (none)
        ..this is like the abortion topic, which I am about to rant and rave about in a diary (I just read about the phenomenon of pharmacists that won't prescribe birth control or morning after pills is growing), we won't come to any agreement.

        Last thing though:  if they were just joe-schoes who just kept on going to the temple after Jesus condemned organized religion and churches and temples in particular, and after organized religion and their government cronies put him to death, well then, we all live on a square earth with stars that circle around us, and Jerry Falwell is the second coming and when he dies, probably any day now, the rapture is going to occur.  (Ironically though, the liberals will be the ones not suffering and who will ascend, and, as Nostradamus says, paraphrasing, 'the rich will be poor, and the poor will be rich.')
