On the issue of physical pain it has to be said that many men have experienced a lot worse with the expectation of a lot less. But that aside.....
In my college days, I did a project on methods of tortures the ancients were able to come up with. It will amaze most people nowadays how long a person can be kept alive in agonizing pain, like a thousand times worse than what jesus supposedly went through. We're talking about days to weeks here, not hours. The christians themselves had plenty of ways to torture people that lasted for days and weeks before killing them.
Anyway, we now return to our regular broadcast.
