You should see how expensive it is to run diesel generators to produce the electricity, especially when you have to literally ship the diesel in first. Having a line back to the mainland also means the windfarm can sell excess production, and the islanders are free to buy energy from the mainland as well. Or you can just go with your gut and ignore what's actually happening. I'm sure that'll work out really well for you. Really well.

Jesus might have claimed that, but that means nothing. There is no solid evidence Jesus existed, and if there was, there is no solid evidence Jesus was not just a lunatic, or in any way different to the dozens of other self-professed prophets running around the middle east at that time. Please, get a grip. Your attempts to explain Jesus as a real person is like someone using a comic book to show how Spiderman must exist.

Oh, so there you are!
