Homo sapiens has been on the planet for at least a hundred thousand years. In order to be Christian, you have to believe that for 98,000 years, our species suffered and died, most of its children dying in childbirth, most people having a life expectancy of about 25; famine, struggle, bitterness, war, suffering, misery, all of that. For 98,000 years, heaven watches it with complete indifference. And then 2000 years ago, it thinks, ‘That’s enough of that, it’s time to intervene. The best way to do this would be by condemning someone to a human sacrifice, somewhere in the less literate parts of the Middle East. Let’s not appear to the Chinese where people can read, study evidence, and have a civilization. Let’s go to the desert and have a revelation there.’ This is nonsense. It can’t be believed by a thinking person.
