I'm sure, when Jesus was around, some people found him pretty cool. I mean, his reputation survives him. But I think I would have been deeply disturbed, had I known him, when he started to say "God is my father." That is creepy. "My mother is a virgin." would have had me steering a wide path around him. Just silly stuff, and very worrisome that so many people, for such a long time, have believed it so wholeheartedly. Some of his utterances were noble. His anti-profiteering stance, his love of his fellow men (well most of them), his tolerance and kindness. But too much about him was just - weird and creepy.
Now Richard on the other hand. He, too, has a love of life. He shows tolerance (except for the ridiculous), kindness, he is extremely intelligent and an all round 'nice guy'. He does not make bizarre claims that he is the offspring of a God. He scoffs at the thought of a virgin giving birth, unless science has intervened. He is concerned and alarmed at the idea of people fanatically following any one person, and forming a cult around them.
Of the two men, I respect, admire, and find Richard Dawkins to be way cooler than Jesus.
