Google "Internet giant Google has changed the tagline on the homepage of its Palestinian edition from 'Palestinian Territories' to 'Palestine'. The change, introduced on 1 May, means google.ps now displays 'Palestine' in Arabic and English under Google's logo. Using the word Palestine is controversial for some. Israeli policy is that the borders of a Palestinian state are yet to be agreed." Good but daring move.

Worth remembering that Jesus wasn't a white man with blue eyes.... he was a brown man.

Not sure how many of the white US religious right realise that?

There is no historical evidence whatsoever that the biblical Jesus ever existed. The teachings of "Jesus" are little more than a rehash of Buddhism. The gospels are essentially a mishmash (virgin birth, resurrection etc) of Eastern religious myths.

unclefester,

"There is no historical evidence whatsoever that the biblical Jesus ever existed. The teachings of 'Jesus' are little more than a rehash of Buddhism. The gospels are essentially a mishmash (virgin birth, resurrection etc) of Eastern religious myths."

I don't have religious faith in the bible, but even if certain events were factually true, it'd be impossibly difficult to actually prove any of them. In 2000 years, I doubt there will be historical evidence that you or I existed either. Jesus is more significant than all of us whether he actually existed or not. It surprises me how far people are willing to accept religious interpretations of history on faith alone.

You mean would have been, as "was" implies that the fellow actually existed. I've got my doubts there.
