Good survival instinct.  Have no choice really but to go with that

Haven't had the pleasure of meeting a fake Jesus, but yes, there are
tricksters and the like.  However, I prefer sometimes to see them as
entities with a sense of humour who have their place in the scheme of
things.  Other times to let it go and say to myself that I don't
understand them.  Other times to think that what I believe I see is my
limited interpretation and maybe a reflection of myself.

human race?
