Are You a Heretic? part 3
You [freethoughtmom] said, "I don't think Jesus is God incarnate, but not because God can't dwell in flesh." Not trying to stir up trouble here but, can you tell me then what you think Jesus is?I had no clue when I started researching the Christmas story about three years ago that I'd have ever said this, but, well, (pause) ... I think that Jesus is a mythos. This was the last step in my deconversion, and it was shocking for me to come to this conclusion, and I'm pretty sure any theist, no matter how open minded, will think this is nuts. So let me quickly add, it doesn't matter what any one person believes (as long as they aren't hurting children with those beliefs), but that's the perspective I was trying to take the quiz from.
And from the quiz author himself, Steven Harris, I am technically NOT a heretic just for the belief of Jesus -> Mythos. He also points out that to him, my position is extremely shaky and practically fantastical. I'll leave that to "well, I guess we have very different opinions." Good luck with your thesis, Steven, and if you have any proof outside of the bible about Jesus' existence, I (and the world) would love to hear about it.
Thanks to all for the comments!
