Researchers have created this hypothetical image of Jesus, based on how the average person looked 2000 years ago in Palestine (it was then the Roman province of "Palaestina").

Think about it. Why would Jesus look different from the people around him? You may not know what each individual white middle-class American looks like, but you can easily create a lifelike depiction that has all the defining characteristics.

And that's what researchers have done here. You cannot know what he exactly looked like, but his style of hair, beard, skin, and ethnic features would be similar to this, based on research.

Non-European Jews native to this region would look similar to this. Of course, they probably have an updated fashion sense.

Ok we know the story of Jesus getting mad at the people in the temple on the holy day, what do you think he would do or Mohhammed would do if he saw the strife and misery.

The same thing that I do when Muslim clerics routinely call Infidels the sons of Pigs and Apes. It is all a fucking backwards religion and just because the pope makes a supposed plea for reason being inherent in Christianity and not Islam doesn't make it so. They are equally false although Islam demands greater submission.

Secular humanism has demanded quite a bit of submission in our schools. Communism demanded even greater submission than most Islamic states.

The point is this - people will always try to impose their view of what society should be like upon others, whether they are Christian, Secular Humanists, Muslims, Communists, Nationa Socialists...etc

It is no accident that Jesus came at a time when he could not be photographed or video taped. I think that knowing exactly what Jesus looked like would creat too many artifical expectations and barriers to faith. (i.e. "He's now William Wallace - William Wallace is seven feet tall!")

Atheism is not communism, secularism protects belief and unbelief.

Middle Eastern leaders and analysts have warned of a potentially violent backlash in the region to the Pope’s remarks implicitly linking Islam to violence.

Point proved.

I have to agree with this. There have been more than one example, especially in the last decade, of imams spouting anti-Christian, anti-Jew, and anti-West propoganda. What has been our reaction? At worst, public condemnation, maybe a call for that imam to resign or be expelled. But where are the riots and demonstrations, violence, burning of flags etc.?

Howvever, more than anything, I think it has almost nothing to do with religion. By and large, these Muslims that we see protesting come from countries with repressive regimes, where the concept of freedom of religion and freedom of expression are foreign. So, to them, anything that does not toe the party line so to speak, in this case a negative quote about their religion Islam, they react this way.

Of course, this is not to say that one is better that the other. We all have our strengths and weaknesses. I hope there will be a day when we can all COEXIST.
