The common man is no more evolved morally or intellectually than they were 2000 years ago. Let me demonstrate. Lets say that Jesus came back today or came today the first time around. What would happen to him? He would be stuck into a mental asylum. While we don't burn people at the stake anymore, if witches started to become apparent to the common man, they would be persecuted. The common man says he loves God, but when his agents come to earth, they get crucified and burned to death. The truth is, mankind hates God. And to quote Nietzsche "God is dead and man has killed him."
