Question: Nearly every religion has been launched because someone claimed that they had some sort of vision from God with a "new" message. Mormons claim to experience God through a "burning in their bosom" - an actual physical experience - to them, this is proof. Full-Gospel Christians claim to receive the power of the Holy Spirit which many of them actually feel - to them this is proof. Many Muslims obviously feel something, as they are willing to blow themselves up for their beliefs. All of these adherents, confirm their experience with their "Book" from God. They all have their apologetics (oddly enough, they never get exposed to the fact that their apologetics fail on almost every level.). We, who are ex-Christians, have studies the facts and know that Jesus was likely a made up character - for example, The earliest manuscripts of Josephus (1st c. historian) had no mention of Jesus, "Chrestus", Christ, but it was added by minks in later manuscripts. Bishop Eusebius (Early Church Father) even admitted to "forging manuscripts" and "adding" blurbs about Christ in them to make him appear real, historically. If Christians believe that God gave men reason, why is it that Christians, Muslims, Mormons, etc, do everything in their power to deny that use? If the Christian, Muslim, religious adherent would only understand objective research, they would soon come (as I did) to the fateful conclusion that their faith is wrong, and that their feelings about their faith were entirely misunderstood and misled.
