This is a detailed discussion of delusional fantasies in the Christian religion by Dr. Richard Carrier. This is a very finely honed logical argument.
The topic is of particular importance because though Christianity has tempered it’s virulent intolerance, this intemperance has historically been responsible for mass murder and torture on a vast and unparalleled scale. All of this mass murder has been committed for the purpose of harvesting souls for Christ. The arguments made by Dr. Carrier apply equally to Christianity’s twin sister, Islam. Islam routinely denies freedom of conscience where it holds political power. Christianity routinely did such likewise in it’s past.
