I'm personally interested in the reasons behind belief. Why people are drawn to a god or gods. If I understand the principles of their beliefs then I can relate to and discuss belief systems with an open mind

whilst I'm not a believer I also like to read about how religion impacts on cultures and societies.

I find reading the books and researching about religion gives me a good insight into how earlier man controlled the masses and how it helped bind and build civilizations. Also I'm very bloody minded so I like to be informed.

What I find strange is the amount of believers that don't read their own books but are happy to tell other people how it is, where they are going wrong and how they should live their lives.

You don't make any conscience effort. No wonder you don't understand the meaning of the word.
"Conscience" is defined as a "moral sense of right and wrong". "Conscious" is "being aware of surroundings".
Meaning is far more important to communication than punctuation, i.e., we aren't being graded on this cr@p.

In order to actually find out if we agree or believe in it or not. You should try it. The single piece of literature responsible for creating the largest number of atheists is the Bible.

Most Christians haven't actually read it. They just know what a preacher told them it says.

No it wouldn't, although it's easy to understand it or perceive it that way. It's simply a misunderstanding. Jesus was fully God, housed within a human body. Greek mythology states that Hercules was son of Zeus and a human mother by physical sexual union. Jesus wasn't conceived sexually. Therefore, Jesus isn't a demi-god.
Hello, Brother Marine.

ok, If jesus was not conceived sexually as you say, then wouldn't some type of artificial insemination be an alternative?

I mean, let's face it.
The gospels say that sexual union of some type had to occur.

That's the only way that it works, ever since Eve gave Adam the bum apple...lol.

You can believe whatever you'd like but deep down inside you know that it takes to to tango.
Either jesus was 100% human which means that Joe and Mary danced or Jesus was a demigod, a deity and Mary dancing.
All cultures taught this thousands of tears before Jesus.
Jesus was no exception.

Well love is unique to the animal world.

If I was to guess I would say at least the building blocks of the chemicals involved may have come first.

Pure speculation.

What matter? That E=MC^2 proves that no entity as described in KJV Revelations 19:6 can exist in this universe.
What matter? That the Jewish bible, the Roman archives (several times and independently), the canon of Marcion (condemned as heretic for telling the truth), the gnostic gospels and St Paul himself (prior to his conversion) contradict modern christian belief in the jesus story
What matter? That the myth of your god is documented in your own a babble as an egotesticle, genocidal, child murdering apologist for rapists. You want verses?
Or was it something else? What are you calling me out on?
When will you all stop blaming God for mans actions..Blame....Blame and more Blame ..all the projection seems to come from Atheists and others,when you fail to look at you're own wrong doing but have the gall and Audacity to Judge GOD...that is what is the matter with the world..you and people with your mindset.

1) Yes there is proof of Peter's inverted crucifixion in Rome under the orders of Nero. This is confirmed in the writings of Tertullian and in the writings of Origen. Nero's gardens, where the infamous Roman Emperor Nero had people killed for his amusement, were located where the Vatican stands today, and it was in these gardens that Peter was crucified upside down.
2) By claiming that it must be one or the other is ruling out the possibility of both simultaneously. By way of analogy, let's consider water. Water at room temp. is H2O in it's liquid state. When heated, it becomes steam. When frozen, becomes, ice, but still, it's always water. H2O. This may not be the perfect analogy to help others understand, but it's the best way I can explain it from my own understanding.
1):
You have been misinformed. There is no evidence as you say.
The NT does not record the death of Peter.
Pope Anicetus of the mid 2nd century states that peter was beheaded by nero in Rome.
Origen of the 3rd century is the one who states that Peter was crucified upside down.
Funny how stories change after the years.

2):
Yes, this is a very poor analogy that you used.
I heard this same type of definition used by other christians to explain the existence of the trinity.

it's time for some new material, don't you think?

Oh, I almost forgot.
On the writings of Tertullian, I think that the poster HipGnosis summed it up very well.
