  •  What Jesus Actually Taught (2+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    One thing New Testament historians agree on is that Jesus actually taught that the world in which he lived was about to end and was to be replaced by a Kingdom of God led by the Son of Man, as foretold in the book of Daniel.  This was supposed to happen, he said, during the lives of the generation then on earth.  This is multiply attested in the gospels, the letters of Paul, and other non-canonical sources.

    As must be obvious to every rational person, Jesus was wrong.  The world did not end and was not replaced by the Kingdom of God during the lifetimes of people who were around in 30 CE.  

    So we are apparently not going to do anything about climate change because a bunch of religious fundamentalists believe in a prediction a Jewish prophet made two thousand years ago and that has already been proven wrong.  Makes sense to me.
