But that's because of any conspiracy to suppress Christianity.

I think you may have forgotten the word "NOT", as in "But that's NOT because of any conspiracy to suppress Christianity."

Re: Giving It All Up and Urging Everyone To Do Likewise
How many of us have read Christopher Moore's "Lamb"?:
https://www.amazon.com/...Childhood/dp/0380813815/ref=sr_1_1

During the missing years, Biff is paralyzed by the Buddhist nuns and it last a few days, with them making fun of him. Much later Biff manages to apply the paralysis ointment to Jesus' lips, making him appear to be dead for a while.

Re: Moore's "Lamb"
here is a youtube that came up on my list. it is a conjecture that Jesus was actually a Buddhist monk.

whether true or not, it would appear that Moore did his homework!

GDR asks:

...and just why does that chemistry exist?

You have heard about multiverses, yes? Imagine gazillions of them arising every planck time with all kinds of different atomic/subatomic constants. Most will vanish instantly, some will last a while longer and some will last billions of years. The Evolutionary Cosmology, sort of an offshoot of the Anthropomorphic Principle, would argue that we just happen to be in one that has these constants that we observe that create this chemistry.
