Here's how other religions began. Someone had a PRIVATE dream about God, or supposedly someone had a PRIVATE encounter with an angel, or someone had a PRIVATE idea about God, and then that someone went and told the rest of the world, but that made those other religions impossible to verify because there were no eyewitnesses of the original PRIVATE events. How Christianity began was totally different. Jesus spent three years teaching and doing miracles PUBLICLY. He was killed PUBLICALY. He was buried and rose from a PUBLIC grave. Then he showed himself to be alive PUBLICLY to more than 500 people. Then it was that "PUBLIC" who saw him alive that went and told the rest of the world. Christianity had the most verifiable origin of all the world religions.
