    I'm getting less and less inclined to discuss with someone's tin foil hat theories who can't admit the obvious.

    From Wikipedia:

    "The historicity of Jesus relates to whether Jesus of Nazareth was a historical figure. Virtually all scholars who have investigated the history of the Christian movement find that the historicity of Jesus is effectively certain,[1][2][3] and standard historical criteria have aided in reconstructing his life.[4] Scholars differ on the beliefs and teachings of Jesus as well as the accuracy of the details of his life that have been described in the gospels,[5][6][7][note 1] but virtually all scholars support the historicity of Jesus and reject the Christ myth theory that Jesus never existed."

    So, the same Sadducees and Pharacees still exist in our day. Jesus answered the, "Did I not say you are gods?" He was referring to Psalms 82:6 in the 1st person. So, yes, Jesus said we are already gods. But, then he clarified this saying that we were essentially gods in embryo, child gods. Learning to become perfect even as our Father in Heaven is perfect. That was in Matthew if you don't know. Are you unable to answer yourself or do you have to just google something that you think is an answer but have no conviction in the answer?

    Yes it does. But, there is a difference between a skeptic and a cynic. A cynic is stuck in their own predisposition beliefs and will not yield to facts or logic and reasoning. A skeptic needs to see for their own eyes as doubting Thomas needed. And even then, he wandered away from the truth.

    Depends on your starting points. Sort of like the old universe versus new universe beliefs. Both take facts from observational science and attempt to prove their beliefs theories based on their personal beliefs. The difference is when you read the literature from both sides you quickly see old universe writers use fuzzy words in every paragraph like "may be" or "could be." Never "it is." Instead they would say "it is LIKELY." Same here with a belief in the One True God.
