Inter Continental Ballistic Jesus!

INTERCONTINENTAL BALLISTIC JESUS!  Sorry folks. Thats right its NOT the US Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles ( ICBM )  This is funny really!!! Bible makes fun of Jesus ascension!!! Enjoy reading  The Significance of The Contradiction What are we to think when witnesses to, if true, one of history’s greatest events, seem confused over major portions of said event? One part of the New Testament claims that Jesus’ “Great Commission” & final departure blast-off back to heaven occurred near the Sea ofGalilee on a lonely mountain top (Mt 28:7-20), while another contradicts this by claiming it occurred about 80 miles to the south, just outside the bustling capital city of Jerusalem,(Luke 24:50,51 & Acts 1:1-12). Christians claim that both accounts were written by eyewitnesses, or at least based upon eyewitness accounts— but beyond that, Christian Fundies claim that both claims are directly inspired by their gods and therefore must be perfect in all details. Common sense says otherwise. A difference of location of this magnitude stands out as a glaring error between supposed eyewitnesses. What gives? ????? To put it into modern perspective, a journey of 80 miles back then thru that territory would have taken a minimum of 5 days** by the standard transportation of their era: “on foot.” A journey of equivalent duration (5 days) in our own era, via our standard transportation (automobile) would easily span the distance starting from Vancouver, Canada, thru the continental United States, thru the length of all Mexico, and end up in the Central American country of Honduras. This being the case, if the ascension of Jesus really happened, it would be impossible for the eyewitness to such a stupendous event to have so thoroughly screwed up its location. If this ascension really happened, and these people actually witnessed it, their memories of such a memorable occasion would not have scrambled the location so. No one would think for a minute that the people who witnessed the fiery death of TWA flight #800 off the coast near New York City in the summer of 1996 would ever, even decades later, mistakenly remember it as having occurred some thousands of miles away, say, near Los Angeles, or Mexico City. Nor would New York pedestrians who stood and watched as airplanes smacked into the World Trade Center in 2001, twenty years later misplace the event as having happened in Kansas. To put the Gospel problem into modern terms so that we can better get a handle on it, it would be as if some claimed this singular event of Jesus’ ascension occurred in the deserts of Mexico while others in the cool forests of Canada. As I said, a discrepancy of this magnitude is an impossibility for REAL eyewitnesses, leaving us the only reasonable alternative, that we are dealing with false eyewitnesses: people who claimed to be eyewitnesses to an event but actually weren’t; or people who claimed to witness an event that never occurred at all. To top it off, these people not only lied about being eyewitnesses to an ascension that never happened, they then went and wrote down their lies on the documents that later evolved into The New Testament. Of course, modern Christian apologists would like to have you believe that somehow “The Great & Powerful Oz” innocently screwed up when he inspired these New Testament authors to pen such contradictory stories. Christian apologists refer to how different witnesses to the same car crash often differ in the details of the incident. They mention this is just human nature, people seeing things differently etc. Of course, the chances of four witnesses to the most memorable crash in human history scrambling their memories to the point where some place it in Mexico, others in Canada— the chances of this is ZERO. Therefore, the contradiction between the Gospels was not created in innocence; it is rather the direct child of deliberate and calculated fraud. Another “small detail” Christian apologists fail to deal with is their own claim of inspiration. They claim that the New Testament authors were inspired in their writings (something the New Testament authors themselves DON’T claim for themselves). If this were the case, this would rule out any and all possibility of error, while witnesses to car crashes (unless insane) make no such claims for themselves. Therefore, for these Christian “witnesses” to have blundered so, proves either that the Fundy claim to inspiration is pure fabrication, or, if the witnesses really were inspired, the witnesses were inspired by their gods to fabricate false stories. Either choice on this limited menu will hang Fundies by their cojonés, and show Fundy Christian Inerrantists to be in error. The contradiction exists, and it is not the innocent result of human witnesses “seeing the accident from different angles”. It is rather the child of prevasive premeditated Christian fraud. At several points in history, various Christian scribes sat down at their desks, and deliberately made false stories. The only reason we today are able to catch this particular falsehood is that we have several versions of the same supposed incident and the liars in question weren’t bright enough to coordinate their lies. Other supposed incidents of which we may have only one version could be even worse lies, but we’ll never be able to find out, as we don’t have other “eyewitnesses” to corroborate the stories against. The Bottom Line… The bottom line is that within the resurrection claims documented lies have been shown to exist, and therefore these resurrection claims do not merit our trust. The Christian claim that Jesus rose from the dead is based upon the claims of documented liars that can not and should not be trust. The only thing that “rose from the dead” after Jesus died were the odors normally associated with a rotting corpse. End of story. ********** * [60 mph X 10 hours per day X 5 days = 3,000 miles total.
