    The universe was created in six days about 6000 years ago

    Two naked teens and a snake in garden determined the eternal fate of the entire human race

    There was a flood in which the water level reached a height of 29.000 ft and evaporated in a few weeks

    Big fish puked up live men

    Walls came tumbling at the sound of a trumpet

    Normal men lived through a 1200 degree furnace

    A virgin gave birth to the god of the universe

    A man was able to walk on water

    People were healed of leprosy by laying hands on them

    Water was turned into fine wine

    5000 hungry men plus women and children who also ate were fed with two fish and five loaves then 12 baskets of leftovers were collected

    A man was hung on a cross and bled like a hog only to show up two days later fit as a fiddle and the story was told by a few of the man's close friends 2000
    years ago and never verified by anobody else.

    There were basically six acknowledged historians in the world at that time. Not a one of them documented any part of this. It would be like Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris never being mentioned in the NY Times.

    The only affirmation of the bible is the bible

    Each generation has brainwashed the next for thousands of years but it's beginning to dwindle. Maybe Thomas Jefferson will finally get his wish and hope:

    "and the day will come when the mystical generation of Jesus, by the supreme being as his father in the womb of a virgin will be classed with the fable of the generation of Minerva in the brain of Jupiter"~Thomas Jefferson~ excerpt from a letter to then president John Adams

    Maybe some respect for the view of intelligent, rational representatives of our species will see new light:

    "I cannot imagine a God who rewards and punishes the objects of his creation, whose purposes are modeled after our own--a God, in short, who is but a reflection of human fraility. Neither can I believe that the individual survives the death of his body, although feeble souls harbor such thoughts through fear or ridiculous egotism. It is enough for me to contemplate the mystery of conscious life perpetuating itself through all eternity, to reflect upon the marvelous structure of the universe which we can dimly perceive, and to try humbly to comprehend even an infinitesimal part of the intelligence manifested in nature." ~Dr. Albert Einstein~

    And many believed that "hope and change" were a sound economic and political strategy.
