    Nice to hear the admittance. However, you know this has been going on for thousands of years with less advanced tools. The roots of religions are based in marketing rather than truth/reality. The “disciples” were more interested in promoting themselves then a dead guy so they continued stories to entice people to pay attention them. Life was so painful that even if it killed them, it didn’t matter; they didn’t have long to live.
