When you have the core developers of major linux distributions refusing to fix a bug despite being called out publicly by Linus Torvalds[1]it's hard to feel like switching to Linux would be any better. Especially when one considers that the objectively best Linux distribution (by number of users) for desktop applications is Ubuntu and they break shit just to break shit every release.

The gospels were written between 30 and 100 years after the supposed death of Jesus Christ. I can't think of anything modern that would be considered more hearsay than that. Worse still, the entire liturgical document was created by a political organization 300 years later. Nothing in that document would be permitted as evidence in court. Never mind the seventeen hundred years of rewrites and revisions. I can't speak toward the Tibetan Books of the Dead, but the Bhagavad Gita has similar issues, especially if you got your copy from a Hare Krishna

heck, eye witness evidence (which most of the various theologies are based on, from the Vedas to the Olympians and beyond) is even accepted in court- but it's not acceptable to an atheist.

Actually, theological texts are hearsay which would not be acceptable in court.

What if the war happened, but the Holocaust didn't and because of that, Germany was able to devote more resources to the actual effort and win? What if Hitler's replacement didn't go insane at the end and honored his agreement with Russia and conquered all of Europe except Britain, Ireland and Iceland?

Without the Holocaust, what egregious horror would a German-conquered Europe have?
