    The life and death of Jesus is documented history. His resurrected body was seen by more than 500 people and most of his disciples were killed because they witnessed to his resurrection. Hardly what one would expect because of a myth or a fraudulent scheme. He is risen!

    ^ No it isn’t documented.
    What is documented is that 100 yrs after the purported crucifiction, no one could prove there was an actual Jesus. Not even and friend-of-a-friend sightings.

    During one of the first attempts to assemble the various books and writings into a Bible, there was a sizable group of people who could only reasonably see Jesus as a metaphor.

    Remember, you can’t spell ‘crucifiction’ without ‘fiction’.

    ^^ Can’t spell ‘non-fiction’ without ‘fiction,’ either. Do you have a point?

    The problem is that there is no hard evidence proving that the acts he performed were miracles. The bible was actually pared down from its original collection of stories. Literacy amongst the people during the time of jesus was … disgustingly low. So that means a good portion of what was written was “I caught a fish this big!” “He caught a fish that big!” And … well, it balloons. Restoring sight? Might have been him taking some water and washing out the guy’s eyes. Turning water to wine? Probably poured some wine into the water to make it suck less. Lent was created to enable the fishers to continue making a living, because people were able to live off the land more readily, so they went to the pope and thus Lent was created.

    Welcome to beliefs vs. science. The problem is neither side can prove or disprove the other’s.

    “Atheists will never unite they are Democrats.”

    Over 700 hundred of us just united for our annual convention. Stay tuned…

    Oh yeah, and happy Pagan fertility celebration to you all.

    I am guessing the typical “birther” is a believer in the Bible. Funny what some people will accept without question.

    We accept on “faith” and some of you need to do better research. Anyway, great cartoon! All you scoffers will be kneeling one day at the One you think is just “fiction”. I wouldn’t want to be in your shoes before OR after that event.

    This would have been better on Sunday.

    Maybe it just reflects that the “Jesus fanatics” are determined to destroy the planet? They DO tend to be both “birthers” and “deniers”.

    HUH???? You really don’t get out much or know much of anyone do you? Okay, I’ll give you the global warming deniers.. yes, that is true. But the Birthers? Really? Of the few people I know that still believe that foolishness, all are atheists or agnostic… and generally have a strong distaste for Christianity. They are typically part of the independent fringe and conspiracy theorists. Example, Trump is no Christian.

    I have heard a couple odd folk on radio who are, but most of the Birthers even there, if the issue of faith comes up, are not Christians.

    I understand the most logical line of reasoning, however (if I were to advocate for your position). I would say that because most very religious people, who are also Christian, happen to be conservative and/or Republican. Most of those, if not all, are not fond of the ideology for which Obama represents and especially not fond of the modern Democratic party as a whole. Thus, the Birther thing is like an easy cop-out for the non-thinkers and those who just want to get Obama out of office.

    As a very religiously practicing conservative Christian… I find the Birther argument foolishness and the proof of citizenship adequate.

    Lastly I’d say that sending this gov’t or any gov’t into an impossible economic situation by forcing abhorrent and improperly thought out laws to force us to become “green” has a far more definite and immediate destructive effect than Deniers whose actions change nothing to the supposed belief of the world’s or humanity’s destruction even centuries from now.

    Mind you, no scientific model has proven that, even if we collapsed every economy in the world to become as perfectly “green” as can be, we can change the ultimate outcome or any stage of the process outside of the error rate (meaning that in the case of a 5 degree error rate, + or - 5 degrees, having a 100% change in our lifestyle would equate to less than a 5 degree fix… hence, it cannot be determined as it being less than the error rate). This was proven by a Scandinavian man-made Global Climate Change believer who is trying to convince nations, like our own, not to be stupid.

    ^ and great point Tigger… it’s more symbolic than literal just like Christmas… as we all know the baby Emanuel, the Christ Jesus, wasn’t born Dec 25th of anyone’s calendar. The Easter/Good Friday days are simply symbolic of the days of the week for which this occurred according to scripture (though even that is debated by a day).

    Argument for birthers: Why doesn’t he just show the original certificate? Seems like a pretty easy solution to me. It’ll shut everyone up.

    this isn’t a picture of Jesus– this’s just some white guy in a long-sleeve t-shirt and a toga with a luminous frisbee-style ring passing over-head…..

    you think Jesus was a white guy? unh-uh, baby.
