Premise One: All men are mortals
Premise Two: Jesus was a man
Premise Three: Therefore, Jesus was a mortal
Deductive logic at its finest! Christians would of course object to the use of logic this way, because they believe Jesus was a man and god at the same time, kind of like how water can be ice and a liquid. I've always thought the central myth at the core to Christianity made little sense. When god for example "sacrificed" his only son Jesus, not only did he sacrifice himself to himself, but since god can do anything, he knew he'd get Jesus right back, and so from god's perspective sacrificing Jesus would be like sacrificing the end of your finger nail - three days later it grows right back. Some sacrifice.
