    Greatest PR Job in History

    In the year 34 or thereabouts a man was killed. This presented a problem for his disciples as their only gig was following him around. But they came up with the greatest PR job in history.
    First they proclaimed this man called Jesus as God. When skeptics asked how a God could allow himself to be killed they came up with two answers. First they said Jesus died for your sins. Then in an even more brilliant move they went to an empty cave and told everyone that Jesus had been buried there but now he had arisen!! Thus Jesus became God.
    Centuries later the Roman empire decided to co opt the Christians by making their religion the state religion. All the stuff about helping the poor was deemphasized and rituals like eating the body of Christ and drinking his blood were substituted.
