The 1.6% solution

1.6% of the North American population are divided on the subject of Jesus. Some say that He never existed. Some say He did exist. Regardless they are unified on this. Jesus was not God and what we have recorded about Jesus is all lies. These people actually believe that evil men, liars, deceivers, con artists in the extreme invented the accounts that we have of Jesus. They wrote these accounts in such a way that today billions of people worship Him and 100's of millions would die for Him. These evil men wrote a story, the message of which is basically this, We must deny our sinful natures, repent of our sins, and follow Jesus to the point of loving our enemies, Doing good to those who hate us, Praying for those who persecute us, Thinking of others more highly than ourselves, Losing our lives so that we may gain them. This, from depraved souls. In fact, as has been said, “It would take more than a Jesus (not less) to invent a Jesus. Nothing about the message that Jesus taught comes naturally to the mind of humans, anywhere. Despite the obvious ludicrous nature of the supposition, this 1.6% of the population still maintains their implausible position, not because of the evidence but in spite of the evidence. They must do this or their world-view will collapse.


  1. An argumentum ad populum (Latin: "appeal to the people"), in logic, is a fallacious argument that concludes a proposition to be true because many or all people believe it; it alleges, "If many believe so, it is so."

  2. Who are these one percenters?

  3. Who are these one percenters?

    Rod, aka Makarios, aka Thesauros, cannot read statistics properly. Therefore he uses a fake statistics. From Wikipedia, we can read that:

    The most recent ARIS report, released March 9, 2009, found in 2008, 34.2 million Americans (15.0%) claim no religion. Of which, 1.6% explicitly describe themselves as atheist or agnostic

    Obviously, that is the 1.6% he is aiming at, but he just won't admit that he was wrong to present that as being 1.6% of North America, since it's just in the USA, and he is also wrong based on the fact that it includes both people call themselves atheists and agnostics.

    I had already written a comment on this, you can check the links to the references over

    Yes, I do know how to write links in HTML, UNLIKE Rod. Another thing I told him already, a few weeks ago, but he did not get what I mean. For him, copy/pasting an adress is the same as writing an HTML tag that we can click on. Anyway, it's not a big surprise coming from him...

  4. A One-percenter is an outlaw biker.

    It has been reported that the press asked the American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) to comment on the Hollister incident, and their response was that 99% of motorcyclists were law-abiding citizens, and the last one percent were outlaws. Thus was born the term "one percenter."

  5. May Jesus the Christ forgive me for being a fool and for not believing that He rose from the dead. May He show mercy on my sinful skepticism.

    I have no problem whatsoever with Christians loving their enemies and thinking of others more highly than themselves. That's noble. I respect that. Honestly.

    I don't think that the people who wrote the New Testament were evil. But the Buddha was teaching these things 500 before Jesus. I'd say there's either been some plagiarism, or Jesus was a Buddhist Himself.

    I am convinced that Christianity emerged from the attempt to merge Buddhist beliefs with Judaism.

    Peace be with you.
