Any intellectually honest person would have to admit to himself that this is indeed silly, but decidedly LESS bizarre than:
Virgins giving birth, people coming back from the dead
Crackers becoming flesh but continuing to seem like a cracker
An supposedly super-intelligent adversary of great but limited power thinking it’s a good idea to oppose an omnipotent being even upon pain of infinite suffering
Heck, this is TAME by comparison to the things one is supposed to uncritically accept by some religions that have done quite well for themselves by anyone’s definition.
