    Former Christian director's secretive film scheduled to open on 06-06-06
    www.worldnetdaily.com/news/printer-friendly.asp?ARTICLE_ID=40867

    A movie whose purpose is to prove that Jesus Christ never existed and that demonizes Christian fundamentalists is scheduled to open on June 6, 2006- that is, 06-06-06, the "666" biblical mark of the beast.

    Directed by Brian Flemming, who is described on the film's website as a "former fundamentalist Christian, "The Beast" promises to spread the theory he claims is "gaining credibility among scholars"-that Jesus was made up out of thin air.

    Here is where I think the battle lines between good vs evil are being drawn, hence my posting on the end of the world. Maybe this battle has always been raging, and due to the information age things are culminating at a faster pace.......Don't really know?

    The existence of Jesus, the person, has never been credibly doubted by anybody. This movie sounds like it will be full of more :bsflag: than Farenheit 9-11.

    Jeff, I agree with you.

    His existence was not in doubt, but rather his divinity !

    Eh, it will at least be interesting. Always good to have both sides of an argument in my opinion.

    However, it'll have to be EXTREMELY convincing though to even dent the notion that Jesus the man didn't exist.

    If Jesus were made up, were all of the characters in the bible made up as well? Especially new testament?

    If so..fine. Let me know how that works out for you..

    If not, why would countless scores of people die for something they NEW was a lie?

    This may conflict with the widely held theory that the left will hold up an alleged blood descendant of christ, (hence the proliferation of all the "Davinci Code" stuff) to ascend to power in the EU and be the anti christ. The left can never keep their stories straight.

    Even history text books recognize Jesus as a historical figure. I do not believe that the world would have transformed in the way it did if a group of people made Jesus up.

    Yeah, good luck with that.

    Ex-christian atheists are the worst kind. Why doesn't he make a movie about how Siddhartha never existed? Because his driving motivation, for both his faith and this movie, is undoubtedly nothing but simple hatred for Christianity.

    Otherwise, why would he even care?

    But all the other bitter little ex-christian atheists will nod their empty heads in monolithic approval no matter the true quality of the product this man's hatred creates.
