I enjoy the idea that some guy named Jesus once said "I AM GOD, FOLLOW ME" and for whatever reason people did, and 1,000s of years later they still do.

As far as "prophecy" goes....you do realize that the OT was around during the time of the writers of the NT, right? It's not hard to make the pieces fit when you have the foundation already laid out. It's as if a buddy of mine that passed away was writing a book on the life and times of Saddam Hussein, but didn't live long enough to write of Saddam's last 10 years. Well, all I have to do is just pick up where he left off....and throw in that Saddam was actually a ballerina and an avid Brittany Spears fan. It isn't true. Or, same example, but he dies before 9/11 and let's say he predicts that there will be a massive attack on US soil from the Middle East. In New York. On skyscrapers. And I just so happen to finish his writings and pencil in the details. Except, it was actually a rocket filled with kittens that hit the twin towers. Is part of it true? Sure. A flying craft hit the twin towers. However, the details are false. In thousands of years, it is possible that some people might believe that. And they would be silly.

I appreciate your well thought out response. It's obvious you & I are in a different place with what we believe. No sense in disputing back & forth. It's a better conversation in person vs. the internet. Studying the Bible, and acting on & believing in what it says has changed my life. And I have no doubt that what I believe is true because of this personal experience. Have a good day, and I appreciate the conversation.

Might have been his "magic". Walking on water and making blind people see. Oh yea, there was that raising people from death, including himself. Yea, that would have fooled many.

These are very interesting reads. I am building a library as an inheritance to my children and I will definitely include that book in my collection. I have studied the Irish slave history in America as well. You might be interested to know that part of the reason this is not so well known is because the slave traders made no distinction between Blacks and Irish. Slavery came in many forms during this time period and no story should go untold. I hope that your reason for bringing this up was to honor the people that went through it and not to somehow denigrate the blacks that went through it as well.

Not at all. But I just want to make the point that all ansestors suffered. You can dwell on that or move on. I chose to move on.

Do those doubting the existence of Jesus also doubt the existence of Muhammad?

His existence is just as dubious as Jesus'. There's a reason archeology is largely forbidden in places where he was purported to have lived.
