Why does it not suggest that this possibility is worth seriously
considering? What is it that makes Christianity so sacrosanct from being
questioned in the minds of so many? All sorts of similar claims are
made all over the place. Ramanujan, the great Tamil mathematician, is
reported to have said that Namagiri, a Hindu Goddess inspired his
mathematical equations.

Mormons claim one thing, Islam claims another, Taoists claim a third,
etc ad nauseum. These views are mutually exclusive and given that there
is more to the world than just flavors of Christianity, it seems to me
highly reasonable to look at why we think Christianity is true.

Think epistemologically and that might help.
