The significance of this effort is that it is the first time that Jesus’s life has been objectively analyzed by a team of highly qualified reviewers.As such, it remains the best effort to date to ascertain the true historical Jesus, stripped of the myths that have been attached to him over the centuries.Most Christians fail to comprehend the implications of the belief system they embrace.Much of what they ‘ know’ about their religion is a highly sanitized version that is promoted by their priests and pastors.This is a strange world when compared to our world, but Christians believe that this world was real in the past.My contention is not that ancient people were stupid, but that they were very superstitious.Look for it not in your neighborhood, your city, your state, your country, or anywhere on planet Earth- it is a world gone with the wind, or much more likely, a world that never really existed. Loftus, at his website “Why I Am Not a Christian”: The Bible is filled with superstitious beliefs that modern people rightly reject.It describes a world where a snake and a donkey communicated with human beings in a human language, where people could reach upward of 900 years old, where a woman instantaneously transformed into a pillar of salt, where a pillar of fire could lead people by night, and where the sun stopped moving across the sky or could even back up.

(2) The Christian world versus the real world The Bible speaks of a world that you can only experience by reading its books.It comes from the bawling and fearful infancy of our species, and is a babyish attempt to meet our inescapable demand for knowledge.” The Christian world is also one that was created in 6 days with Earth at its center, a world where Neanderthals, Homo erectus, and Homo habilis have no place in history, where dead people rose out of their graves, walked about the city and conversed with the living, a place where demons could enter pigs and cause them to run off a cliff and drown themselves, where two bears can maul and kill 42 children, a place where a woman can conceive and deliver while remaining a virgin, where the act of sending dead people to a place of eternal torture can be seen as a just punishment for living an ordinary human life, a place where angels interact with the local citizenry and make important proclamations, where slavery is held up as an honorable ‘enterprise,’ where women are a form of property, and where rebellious children, adulterers, and homosexuals are considered so evil that they deserve to be stoned to death.And finally it is a world where God feels that he must kill his own son because he can find no other way to forgive people of their sins.Jesus practiced faith healing without the use of ancient medicine or magic, relieving afflictions we now consider psychosomatic.He did not walk on water, feed the multitude with loaves and fishes, change water into wine or raise Lazarus from the dead.
