This is true. The last time the late JC showed up on this planet amazing things did happen. Like, for example, people rose from the dead, five loaves of bread and two fishes fed a lot of people, water turned into wine (I especially liked this last one ;)

The amazing things that happen in this world are not because of Christ. He is not real. These things just happen. From what I've been told about Christ, were he real, he wouldn't have anymore magical powers than David Blaine.

I'm sorry, but David Blaine is an illusionist and an endurance artist. He doesn't know or practice magic and I don't know any single magician that does. They are merely very smart people who know exactly how to perform these stunts in order to convince people that they are magical.

Listen, I saw David Blaine change a cup of coffee into quarters. If that's not an amazing occurrence, I don't know what is. That totally beats Jesus' water to wine thing. Just goes to show ya that you don't need Jesus to have amazing things happen.

Plus, it's not fair to say that all amazing occurrences today are just tricks, and when Jesus did it it was magic. For example, if you saw a street performer change water into wine before your eyes, you would think it was a trick, but when someone else tells you that a guy a long time ago did it, its magic? or a miracle?

The point I'm trying to make is that Jesus isn't real, and any "amazing" things that people say happened either a: didn't happen or b: were tricks. It is certain however, that they weren't magic or somehow done by the power of "god"
