Yes, exactly, I wasn't being literal. I was trying to point out the sheer stupidity of biased apologists being crass enough to believe that they could wade through a veritable mountain of Yesuhas 2000 years ago who were preaching the end of the world in a very apocalyptic time in history and actually find the real son of God among them upon whom the legends were based when not a single line of secular history had been written about him. I mean that makes looking for a needle in a haystack about as easy as locating a cracked egg in a carton of 12 in comparison.
