08 Why was there a Christian movement after Jesus

Believer asks: Well, if the resurrection was a hoax, why would there be a Christian movement after Jesus’ death?

Skeptic replies: For about the same reason that, if the Olympian gods were hoaxed, why would the Greek and Romans worship them for centuries? The ancient Greeks and Romans and the later Christians have that in common. I can only hazard a guess about their reason: it’s a big bad world at times and philosophy alone may afford little comfort.
