    1) the Christians are right, and you're a Muslim who failed to recognize the Messiah
    2) the Muslims are right, and you're a Christian engaging in idol worship

    I suppose you didn't choose cultural bias then..you got lucky and was born into the correct religion or peer set. Only every cultural choice which does not match your own is unjustified bias eh?

    Nope. Either Jesus is God or he isn't.

    I can't answer this. It's like asking, Which is worse: 1) 2+2 = 5
    2) 2+2 = 4

    There's no "better or worse"; only correct and incorrect. And obviously, your statement 1) is correct.

    If it's so obvious how come Christianity correlates strongly with European ethnicity and contact with same? Maybe it's not obvious to everybody.

    EDIT - You're a Muslim? 😵

    Well if you're a Muslim and want to convert to Christianity, then the consequences may be worse than if you're a Christian and want to convert to be a Muslim.

    Either Jesus is God or Allah is God. Or neither are God.Or both are. Or both are partially correct and lay a claim to being alligned with God.
    Yep!! (I dont think its as simple as one is right and the other is wrong. If this were correct I dont think you would see either of these faiths lasting too long)

    But...I remain open to be corrected. What was your answer again?

    How so? (along what lines are you going along here?)

    Muslims are historically tolerant of other religions (people of the book) but prescribe dire penalties for apostates who abandon the Muslim faith. Muslim communities appear extremely hostile to members who abandon their religion. Generally, things can be very rough if you choose to get out.

    Christians are historically intensely intolerant, not least of other Christians with a miniscule and almost invisibly slight shade of difference over an obscure theological nicety. In strongly Christian communities the social sanctions for apostasy can also be harsh. So I concede it is hard to push too hard the proposition that it is an easier faith to abandon.

    Even so it is on this fine thread of allusion that my joke relied.

    Okay--it's obvious to everyone I know who are right-thinking Americans.
