    world was created in 7 days.  Who was there when the world was created to write it down in the old testament?  My husband says it was Adam.  So Adam was writing, reading, and had full knowledge of what was going on?  This is hard to believe when the first recorded finding of pre-historic bones shows that humans could barely function.  The old testament was like just a bunch of made up tales to me.  I mean most of what went down none of the people who wrote the old testament witnessed anything they wrote about.  Almost all of it is based on heresay and gossip.  We now know that Jesus could have been married, and most of what was written after his death was more than likely glorified to make Jesus more than he was.  This is not to say he wasn't a good man which I am sure he was.  After all he was fighting for the poor and the oppressed.  Back then the poor were taxed and the rich were not.  Oh, much like it is now.

      cultures (Gilgamesh, etc.) and used to illustrate the power of God (and later - the wonderful person Jesus was).

      The only difference between cult leader Jesus bin Joseph and someone like Jim Jones or David Koresh is that Jesus managed to not kill off people who believe the stuff he spouted.

      The people remaining are the ones who passed the word around, who wrote the books, who started the churches and became a strong cult that overwhelmed everyone else.
