I have no problem accepting that this figure existed and as for the God thing, it is people to place deity status and veneration status unto figures. Look at Bhudda, Confucius, this idea of anointing saints, all this is man made, in no way divine. Personally, I refuse to let go of colloquial phrases just because people associate them with religion, as I don't. I don't even connect Christ to religion personally, so I can meditate on that figure, symbolically.

It is people who load words with dynamite and make it a big deal, rather than just look at all of it as cultural and if everyone on the planet looked at all religions and such as strictly culture and taught it that way the world could have peace.
