Your as bad as divegeester. You looked for the worst society you could think of, then chose an analogy that didn't fit (enemies). Its as good as an admission that I am right.
[b]maybe jesus should have been chinese or japanese, a country with much more rigid social structures, where a peasant was not allowed to leave his village.
He could have be ...[text shortened]... Jesus to be born into? No. Yet you think you have refuted my point by listing worse societies?[/b]
you choose one then. i hear the inuits are very nice. i am sure jesus would have been better off there. but i don't wish to influence you. you pick a society where it would have been a low probability that he would be killed for spreading his revolutionary message and his message would get across europe and influence the following centuries.

i am sure this comparisson was indeed thought of. i refuse to comment until you give me details. perhaps being as bad as divegester is a good thing.

yes, i remember arguments like these from the fights i had on the playground when i was 8. let's pretend you didn't say that.
Did I say there was no worse society for Jesus to be born into? No.
no you didn't. and you also missed my point.
you said he could have been born in a better society. if you claim such a society existed and jesus being born in it could have not gotten him killed while still spreading christianity, please let us know what that society is.
if you are claiming simply that he should have been born in a hypothetical nicer society, i counter with all society should have been nicer and jesus wouldn't have had to be born.
