There were over 500 witnesses to Jesus after his crucifixion. His own brother didnt beleive yet later became
a believer and was willing to die for that belief.
There is more evidence for a real Jesus than for any
evolutionary process. His simple yet profound words
are so unique yet only a few will ever really believe and stand up for their faith, just as he said. None of the deities you have mentioned have that reach. I made my journey by adopting a disabled child from SE Asia after
seeing hell first hand I can never retun to your world
of mocking superority and smug complacency, and you would
not envy me my world but Im not counting on just the here and now for happiness sadly thats all you have.

Really? Name them, and point me to their individual accounts.

You're not really clear on what the word "evidence" means, nor the nature and volume of the evidence for evolution, are you?

None of the deities you have mentioned have that reach.

Because their peak popularity took place before the invention of the printing press.

I made my journey by adopting a disabled child from SE Asia after seeing hell first hand I can never retun to your world of mocking superority and smug complacency,

EXCUSE ME? All of your posts on this thread have utterly reaked of "mocking superiority and smug complacency".

and you would not envy me my world but Im not counting on just the here and now for happiness sadly thats all you have.

You haven't a clue what I actually believe, son, but I see that that doesn't stop you from mistaking your fantasies about me for solid fact. The world is not as simple as your little black-and-white presumptions about it, and neither am I.

This may count for evidence in religious circles. But 2000-year old hearsay accounts from mostly biased, untrained observers doesn't cut it in scientific research.
Why not leave science to science's role, and the bible to the bible's role. Trying to use the bible as a science book just doesn't work.
