Re: Just call like you see it
So are you calling Jesus the "Ugly"?
You are going to hell!

For me, it is far better to grasp the Universe as it really is than to persist in delusion, however satisfying and reassuring.

Re: Just call like you see it
LOL. I've seen this somewhere and if memory serves me right this is an artistic portrait of Cromagnon man.
BTW, do we know for certain that a man named Jesus from Nasareth existed at all?
I've seen arguments raised for and against such a statement:

No, i wasn't implying god was a cromagnon. I remember seeing that drawing somewhere and i thought it was from an artcile about cromagnons. I am trying to locate the article and see if it used this picture of Jesus to show how a cromagnon might have looked like(which would be somewhat derogatory). Or maybe my memory fails me, we'll see.

Re: Just call like you see it
I have the exact same sense that I've seen that photo before. Taking a closer look at it, though, the beard is neatly trimmed, maybe not a likely feature for a Cro-Magnon reconstruction.

Re: Just call like you see it
That picture has featured at the forum before:
Message 16
And it is a six year old story - so you could have seen it anywhere I guess.
