Hmm, perhaps I should have just said debating weather the Church was preaching nihilistic metaphors was idiotic and made it easier for you fruitcakes to understand. The Jesus myth isn't nihilistic anymore than Slipknot is nihilistic or anything else you could stretch some loose definition of nihilism to fit. Well shit, in that case liberalism is nihilistic because it drops traditional conservative Christian values for some other stupid value system. Fuck you.
Besides, half the posts weren't talking about what the impact on society was, they were refering to him as a historical figure under the assumption the Biblical tales are true, assuming he wanted to be a Jewish Socrates and other moronic ideas. As I said, fuck you.
Fuck me? I hardly even took part in this debate. I'm not the one claiming that Jesus, or the Church preached nihilism under the veil of Christianity. In fact if you read the bottom paragraph of my post, it pretty much summed up exactly what you said, except replace Sex Pistols with Slipknot. Also, in no part in this conversation was there an assumption that Jesus was a historical figure, nor is that required to debate his philosophy. If what you're implying is true, that Jesus never existed, just change the wording a little bit and essentially you have the same debate. This argument does not depend on Jesus' existence to be relevant. Now, if you read my first post, I implied that this is a valid conversation because of the impact that Jesus (myth or otherwise -- IT DOESN'T MATTER) had on our society, to which you turned around and replied that nobody's talking about the impact it's had. Once again, in this particular instance, we don't need to.
If I missed your point, which you hardly implied in your first post, I apologize, but cheer up, kid. Stop being so combative.
