Even as a very young Christian, I never understood all the flap about Jesus. You have to believe in Jesus as the son of God, who is the same as God and part of a trinity, which includes the Holy Spirit, which is the same as Jesus and God. Well, OK, that's how Christianity differs from Islam and Judaism. Set aside the absurdity of the Trinity with its issues of split personalities, and a wispy spirit thrown in for good measure, and the real question still remains. As I asked earlier, "Is there a god?"
Christians, Muslims, Hindus, and Jews, blithely jump over this elementary question, so that they can jump straight into formulating stories, finding hidden meanings, and busying themselves with theological dissections, about the very thing they never bothered to come to grips with in the first place. Is there a god?
I find that when I'm working on a logical analysis or trying to understand myself, it helps if I write my thoughts down in the form of a logical progression. If I just limit myself to thinking without writing, I find myself making occasional leaps of thought that conveniently bypass troublesome concerns. These are things that are critical links in the chain that lead to logical conclusions. When I write it down, those weak links tend to glare at me. If I just think without writing, it's too easy to blithely ignore the links that would make any conclusions illogical.
This is the mistake that theists make, and they do it right out of the gate. They don't question whether God even exists before they start making shit up about him. Well, OK, sometimes they ask the essential question, but they conveniently ignore the links that provide a logical answer regarding the existence of a god. It seems to them they are being entirely logical. It's part of the human condition, most people assume they are being logical, but they do so for illogical reasons. Maybe like they assume they are logical because they have good intentions. I dunno, but they just don't seem to see how lost they are in their reasoning.
