    In general, agricultural societies have been suggested by anthropologists to develop religions with unique characteristics, as opposed to religions in societies that live in the forest. So the Jesus religion has many of the characteristics of a typical agricultural society. It's certainly not about ancestor worship or animism. It's about a worldly king that will guide people to a promised land of milk and honey (both milk and honey come from domesticated animals primarily). So although not such a direct relationship, I think there is something legitimate to be said for the premise.

    Some of that has to do with its roots in Judaism, which while monotheistic is the ethnic religion of what were historically very pastoralist people.
    And yet other parts have to do with Christianity's appropriation of pre-Christian customs as it spread throughout Europe. Not at its root or beginning, but later during its expansion.

    Had a strange thought bubble

    Church - god is always watching you and knows everything you do

    Me at the desk in a police station - I wish to take out a restraining order

    Police - against who

    Me - god. After what church told me about him I don't want him anywhere near me

    Anybody tried that approach?

    A young reporter sent to do some ivestigative journalism examining allegations that JC had ripped off the MO of over ten other humans proclaiming to be God.
    Its an astrology trip ..12 side kicks are the 12 constalations or partners of the Sun...astrology was big with the bronze age folk and clearly played a huge role in putting together the JC story.

    The fish thing..astrology not reference to loaves and fishes unfortunaty.

    what mortal sin to seek belief

    maybe religion gives the brain something to do as it continues to increase its capacity.
    maybe religion was the traite that left larger brain space that could then be filled with science.

    Does god have to attend the court? or at least a church representative?

    Or will a notice server be required to serve the notice?

    That would be fun to watch

    Can we get a TV crew to follow the notice server?

    I dont understand your question could you please rephrase it if you wish to have me answer.
    Why would you ask such a question?

    Are you a believer?

    If so I get it..a typical tactic which I find tiresome and unproductive.

    If you contend something may be this or that say so and dont come this mysterious question crap with me. ..look it only annoys me and believe me the only petson you want to know is me when I am being nice.

    Restate your view clearly and not in the form of a meaningless question and I will comment maybe...but so far it sounds like nonsence.

    Dont you know anything?
    God is everywhere so of course he will be there...the only problem is he cant appear..its not that he does not want to but if he does folk will expect him to appear say at the football or in church.
    We are going to move for contempt of court for not appearing.
    No there are no problems with service because God knows everythung...as soon as the documents are typed up God knows and that is sufficient service so the lawyer says...he could have made up other nonsence but he told me the truth and so I did not have to pay the usual servers service fee.
    Well you should go to church..you can watch if you dont laugh..it is much the same ..folk who you could think should know better will be there talking to God...who is there but you cant see him thats all.
    Mmmm couldnt you have some fun with a re recording of "God" at the church service...hide a couple of speakers..a bit of thunder..then..."sinners I say unto you the end is here..etc"
    Well we can do that but if we have a crew lets film a porno movie with a religious theme ... or maybe a movie about ducks..I like ducks.

    Would christians be offended if you made a porno featuring the life of Jesus or would they turn the other cheek.
    Could they handle a porno where a man was loving his fellow man?
    I dont like pornography why did you bring it up?
