 How can everyone be decendants of Adam and Eve without incest?


It's all relative.

but jesus was a jew, isn't that a sin to christians?

why is that a sin?

to most christians it is

It simply doesn't make sense, the way to heaven is only through the teachings of christ but dude was a jew, doesn't that complicate things just a tad?

You know there was no such thing as a "Christian" when Jesus was living, correct?

Yes but that still doesn't explain it

Not to keep relating to my past work but...

I was in Memphis on a Wife Swap shoot and the 16 year old daughter was talking to her Dad about
The Da Vinci Code and how she wanted to see it. This family considered themselves Christian.

So the girl says to her Dad, "We were talking about it in school today and I had no idea that Jesus
was Jewish!" And her Dad said, "Jewish? No he was not! And don't say such a thing again!"

All of the crew members smiled but none of us said anything.

Explain what?  There aren't any Christians if there isn't Christianity.  Christianity didn't exist when Jesus was alive.  It's fairly simple.

Jesus (allegedly) is the Jewish Messiah.  The Jews of today do not believe Jesus was the true Messiah.  Christians do believe Jesus was the Messiah, therefore, they are called "Christians."

I believe the Apostle Paul was the first to speak of the notion "Christianity," but I could be wrong about that.

I guess it is simple, thanks for clearing it up.

You're welcome.

You sure do bash Christianity a lot to not know a whole lot about it.  ;)

Good question - and I don't know the answer.  Just like another group of scientists who have recently provided a genetic analysis that indicates that during a time in the not too distant past - an ice age - humankind it believed to have been catastrophically decimated - to the point where all humankind is not thought to share traits from 8 females. 

Now remember - this is not my story - but rather that of a group of genetic engineers... kinda like the same group who offered the studies on a gay gene - but that is way back in the thread....

It's cool, certainly don't know as much as most of you guys.

Having said that I know enough to know something simply doesn't jive.

I read the article, but not the 5 pages of responses, so if I'm repeating anyone's thoughts, sorry. 

I knew before I even read it that it would be about little boys, not little girls.  No one seems worried about the little lesbians-to-be, I guess.  Hmmm.
