55. Xtianity needs to be debunked, as the flat-earth "theory" was
"...Reject everything in the Bible except Jesus's words"

huh? Who? We do not even know if a historical person named "Jesus" existed, much less that the words in the "Gospels" are an even remotely accurate of what any person did or said.

If you think Jesus was a historical person, and the gospels are accurate, watch the DVD "The God Who Wasn't There" - it is only 59 minutes long, but it will radically change your whole perspective.
