No, Jesus was supposedly both man and god at all times
Tiber Septim was man who combined with two others and became the god Talos.

Worshiping Talos is like worshipping any outlawed religious figure. Obviously.

I think it's funny that people always draw the simplest and well known comparisons. It's always Jesus and Nazis. It's understandable though.

Truth is history has more people in it than just Jesus. Don't forget Nazis and religious persecution *only knows of Nazis and Jesus as well*

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?


Oh great, another "lets hate on Christians" thread on Gamefaqs...

You really believe that Jesus Christ didn't exist?


I really do believe he did not exist. I have never heard of any proof, outside of books writting hundreds of years after his supposed death.

Its very understandable. It is also very logical. It sends out the message in the more understandable format. It would lack effectiveness to compare Talos to Mithra, because most people don't know Mithra.

It would require extra explanation just to make your point understood. It is simpler and more efficient to compare to something that more people understand, like, Jesus and Nazis.

The same could be said about thousands of other people in history.

And yet when you compare things so different in such a general forum it has no purpose other than to incite arguments rather than a debate.

P.S. not many people know fully the many versions of Jesus and the full history and workings of the Nazis. Most know their version of Jesus and think that Nazis were all a bunch of rabid hypnotized persons turned bloodthirsty beasts

How do you know that any historical figure exists? By hundreds of-years-old books. The only proof I've seen of George Washington are books hundreds of years old.

Just to clarify: I am an atheist. I do not believe Jesus had divine powers, but I know that it is historically accurate that a man named Jesus of Nazareth lived on Earth about 2,000 years ago, preaching that he was the son of the Jewish God, and that he was tried, found guilty of blasphemy, and excuted by crucifiction, making him a martyr and beginning Christianity as we know it.

I'm making fun of Christians! Am I cool and edgy and smart now?
So, if you put an Oriental guy in a bowl, and spin it around, does he become disOriented?
