Tangle may rightly claim that all of this was "made up" but I would argue that they had to have some belief and inner passion with which to fuel these debates..

Obviously people are making this stuff up - how else are there so many different opinions? If there was one truth there'd be one answer and we'd all know it.

The story was that god sent his son the earth to die to save us all. Despite that being utterly barking mad and obviously just the invention of primitive minds, the bloody prophesy described by the myth did not get fulfilled. How could it be any clearer? Not only is there no agreement on who, when and why we're supposed to be saved by this event we even know it didn't result in the predicted outcome.

What makes you think we would all know it?

Because this is supposed to be god we're talking about, not your great aunt. He sent hisson to earth to die so that we'd know this 'truth'. (Totally bonkers, but that's the story.) How come it didn't work?

A lot depends on your perspective.

You're ignoring my questions and instead responding with magical blather.
