I will have to watch out for that one. Should note that no historian disputes the gospels of The Flying Spaghetti Monster either - so the acts of Jesus and FSM must be equally probable!


Quite so.

If you are agnostic about god, you should be equally agnostic about Bertrand Russell's orbiting pink teapot, given the evidence for either proposition is equal, i.e. none whatsoever.
