That's an interesting theory. Quite funny, as well. Two guards get a bit drunk, decide to play a trick on a couple of Jewish women come to bring offerings to that criminal who got crucified, and end up inadvertantly giving rise to the what is now the most widespread religion on Earth. Prime example of the domino effect, wouldn't you say?

Exactly! I would like to discuss it at home, but my extremely religious brother would make my life hell, and my parents would make me "apologize to the lord"

I wouldn't say insanely, but enough to really annoy you about it

And as my brother would say "Don't say the lord's name in vain!"

My response to that would be: "F*** you, it's Christians like you who got it stuck in our language."

Technically, that isn't true. While the specific phrase "Oh God" and all derivatives are specific to Christianity, crying the name of the gods or mythological heroes has been a feature of languages for a long time ("Hercle! di immortales!"). I would imagine that the name was merely changed upon Christianity becoming the dominant religion in Europe.

Yes, but I doubt this guy would object to me saying "By the immortal gods!" (literal translation of "di imortales!"), at least not on the grounds of 'taking the Lord's name in vain'.

Scientifically impossible. People can believe what they want though, you can't really say it didn't happen unless you were to build a time machine.

What do you think angels look like though? I don't think there would be costumes shops back then. And I don't see any reasons for the guards to play a trick on them. And if they were wearing halos, then they would have to have something attached to their heads to hold them up.

Actually, the bible didn't say anything about halos...
Actually, they had clothing stores though didn't they? costume shops aren't always needed.

Well, angel's have wings, right? I don't think any clothing stores back then sold artificial wings, since there wouldn't be any need for them.

Rain matrix, don't post worthless posts.

Simple Theory: It's not impossible, it just can't be proved. But then, neither can it be disproved.

If you read the gospel they DID go in the tomb to put oniment on Jesus's body.
Blizard: STFU!
