Why or why not?
BONUS QUESTION: Correctly guess Rival's favorite sex toy and her preferred color for it.
(Hint: It can be argued the human brain is the sexiest sex toy of all, and a healthy one is typically pink-grey.)
[My own bias is that it's credible, even to the point of it becoming the wave of the future.
However, I still keep the question of the historical Jesus on the back burner because at any time a discovery could be made of eyewitness testimony from Jesus, his original disciples, or better yet, from hostile sources. In which case Christ Myth theory would be stood on its head.]
Christ Myth - central tenets:

Why is it sinful for man?
Are there any homosexual animals?
That many humans are homosexual is well known but we also know the behaviour is extremely common across the animal kingdom, from insects to mammals. So what's really going on? Can these animals actually be called homosexual?
....... For some animals, homosexual behaviour isn't an occasional event – which we might put down to simple mistakes – but a regular thing....

Someone pointed out some one-sidedness in a thread that I started, I’m a science denier, an enemy of science, so I decided to try to balance that out with this thread.

Has to mean Jesus.
If you don't believe this, how do you reconcile the direct words....
We are just pawns in a game of chess , seagulls following trawlers , why the fishermen laugh . A game where we were never important , lead to believe we meant something more than just slaves to the cause .

Why can't God, if He/She/It exists just create humans whom they know would want to exist instead of creating people who hate being here? Do they like seeing people suffer, is them being here even though they don't want to be here some type of practical joke for this being? Like gosh, why can't God just leave people alone? If a God's all knowing they should know exactly who to create since they would foresee who would want to be here and who would not want to be here, so it's not that...
