I can't help feeling that this argument is back to front, it's kind of like: this evidence can't be right because it doesn't fit my theory. But even if we do argue it back to front then one could still argue that Jesus' message is that humanity's path forward is spiritual is surely stronger if he is a man like all the rest of us and manages to take the spiritual path. Otherwise a man might not be totally unjustified in saying, "OK Jesus, its alright for you to say look at me I've taken the spiritual path, but you are a god after all."
That is a very good point.
Don't worry about the references to back up your theory.
I no longer search for such because I know that no reference will
be able to convince anybody on this controversial subject.
That I why now after reading countless book on it I just develop
a feeling that I explain as such and don't bother anymore for
the references. When the feeling is so deep that you feel it in
your bones, heart and brain you can safely assume you have
found your own Truth and there is no need anymore for proof.
That is what I wish to everybody to find.
