Especially dislike the whole Jesus sacrifice thing. Seems like more of a guilt trip than anything. Definitely wasn't necessary, and kinda wasn't even much of a sacrifice.
I'd be interested in what that Lewis dude has to say on it. I really should just order that book, since you've mentioned it quite a few times. And Summer Glau likes the dude, and I've got a gay little crush thing for that babe still. Harhar! Just rewatched firefly again, wish they didn't cancel that shit.
I'm just pretty sure I'd still disagree with a lot of it. Christian theology discussions are things I'll entertain for the sake of discussion, but the whole lack of evidence thing makes it hard for me to take it seriously. I think Christians should just, you know, try to be emulate the good shit Jesus did and that's pretty much it. All the other shit is kinda unnecessary or pretty bad.
I wasn't able to find it, but from what I remember it was something along the lines of God "approaching" humanity when it had reached a certain point in cognitive evolution, but I'm really not doing it justice.
Also, I don't believe that we are "born into" sin, we are born with the ability to sin and just take care of the rest on our own once we reach some level of understanding.
