Is worshiping Talos kind of like worshiping Jesus?
Nick_Saban posted...ggrissom posted...I mean they are both mere men that were held in such high regards and twisted, glorified perceptions by religious fanatics that they essentially became gods. Does that make the Thalmor essentially the Roman empire by wanting to snuff out Talos/Jesus worship?
The most important books of the New Testament were written within decades of his death.
On another note...Missing books of the bible dun dun duuuuuh.

There are two major difference, though, between Jesus and those thousands of others: contemporary corroborative sources and direct physical evidence. It's like this...believing in the existence of Jesus requires vastly more faith than, say, believing in the existence of people like Lincoln or Einstein.
Of course, that's not to say Jesus didn't exist, but rather an explanation why many people are skeptical of his existence.

From: Ertrick36 | #029Correct me if I'm wrong here, as I'm not particularly a follower of Christianity.
The only thing you are really incorrect about (at least by Christianity) is that Jesus is technically God. The idea of the Holy Trinity basically states that God is in effect, God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit. He is all three of them at the same time. It's a clever way for Christians to get around monotheism.
Just saying, TES religion makes far more sense than any real world religion. When the Avatar of Akatosh bursts forth and literally breaths fire on a deadric prince.... that is the evidence of gods at work.

I'm making fun of Christians! Am I cool and edgy and smart now?
I beleive that the only way to true salvation is by following Christianity. It is the correct way to live, despite the fact that 99% of my fellow worshipers don't know that is a literal sin for a man to shave his beard or to be around a woman during her period.
Why won't everyone accept me and my kooky bronze age beleifs?
That's why its called fantasy.
Religion or TES?

Talos has readily available history and texts in game while Jesus has only one true history book. With only one source about him it can be hard to the accept the angle of history written within. Lack of proof doesn't mean he didn't exist and vise versa. The same could be said about evolution, it has to be taken on faith as there is no actually proof just highly incomplete fossil groups.
It only seems to make more sense because Elder Scrolls religions were created in a fictional universe where God's actively make their presence known.
