I am an atheist who believes that Jesus Christ was the greatest person who ever lived. Besides using an entirely non-Biblical bit of reasoning that limits God to a wholly temporal cause-and-effect, this more or less tosses aside all that I have understood of Orthodox Trinitarian (as in, Ecumenical Councils and such) dogma.
