Exactly, he told his apostles to be the one who used money for his ministry, instead of him. He had Peter catch a fish and get money from its mouth to pay the temple tax.

He had Judas be in charge of the money bag, that he embezzled from.

Just how "just" are those "words of justice" that bid others to do your 'sinning' (by using money) in your stead?
After his death Jesus told the apostles that he is God, then he replaced his Father. If you love money your master is the devil not Jesus or God. That's why you can't love Jesus.

Um, light is the name of spectrum of electro-magnetic waves that we do actually see. We feel inferred, are affected by ultraviolet and communicate along a broad spectrum of various wavelengths of electro-magnetic waves.

No, it has not been "proved that parallel worlds exist". If the "earth is over croudy of souls" as you assert, then they better get back to their own homes instead of mooching off of us, hiding car keys, stealing one sock from a pair in the dryer (or wash), rearranging furniture in the middles of the night, eating that last bit of something that you knew was still in the fridge or cabinet, beating my high scores on the X-box, sucking up all that electricity (how the heck did we use 1.21 giga-watts last month?!?!?). Heck, at least make themselves useful, weed the garden, cut the grass, feed the dang pets, change the oil in the car, anything. Either they get a job or go back to school or they're just going to have to go out and get a parallel world of their own.

Unlikely. The invisible pink dragon living in my garage probably scares them away.

I have no love of money (if I did I wouldn't be spending so much of it) and heck, I might even love Jesus if he wasn't portrayed as such a hypocritical douche (narcissistic god incantation included). He didn't replace his father he was his own father, not to mention manifested an auditory sexual assault that resulted in a pregnancy.

So, as expected no citation of some other "species like our" that "choose a leader".

Are you genuinely not understanding that we don't believe in god, or are you being deliberately obtuse?

We don't think god is real Gaetan. Souls aren't real. None of this is real.

Please provide evidence that Jesus was worth listening to. You are simply asserting your premise and demanding we accept it. We do not.

I think Jesus as presented in the bible was a vicious psychopth attempting to push nonsense ideas and belief in a ridiculous fantasy that he called "god" who, by his/her/it's own presentation in the bible was an even bigger monster. The bibilical god is not real, but if he WAS real he would be evil. Why should I care what a genocidal capricious wannabe dictator and archetypal abusive parent thinks is good?
