Mike82ARP Posted March 24, 2013 Share Posted March 24, 2013 For Rand was clear as a bell when she said "No supernatural dimension exists."With such a clear position, how can the Jesus character (the product of a supernatural being) be integrated into Objectivist thought without arriving at a substantial contradiction?Not to mention that the Jesus figure is also the classic case of the 'sacrificial lamb', in a type of sacrifice which Rand spent a lifetime in attacking as 'irrational' and therefore 'immoral'.It doesn’t matter whether Rand was “clear as a bell” when she made her proclamation “ex cathedra". What matters is, “was she correct?” How can one say with certainty that something which cannot be proven one way or the other is in fact, true? Rand had at best a sophomoric understanding of Christianity as do the ARI and TOS gang. Her comments on the ‘sacrificial lamb” makes that clear.
