    I voted yes. This story is an exaggerated version and dramatized version of every struggle we ever face. It is a reminder that the human spirit has the power to overcome overwhelming dire odds and reach the pinnacle of victory.

    This is by far the greatest story ever told. That is saying a lot considering that I am an atheist.

    .
    seriously, were it the closing scene as most likely you might suggest it as a tragedy ... from a theists point of view.

    if not the story, the ensuing interpretation is a travesty.

    He was tortured and took on the sins of every human past and present. Satan manipulated men to silence Christ by having him assassinated. Not only did Christ's message prevailed, He ended up giving unworthy mankind favor in the sight of a cruel god who hated mankind. Through Christ's sacrifice wretched sinners are friends of God.

    I would agree with you here.....all except the part of 'a cruel God who hated mankind.'

    and you say you're an atheist? Interesting…….

    He crucified the corrupt flesh as an ensample and He also said "follow me". He also told those who do not think that they will not drink of his cup that they would indeed drink of it (have to drink of the same bitter cup).

    Spiderman's name is Peter Parker. He is from Queens. He likes a girl named MJ. Does this mean I believe Spiderman really exist because I know about him?
