The creed was cobbled together under the threat of violence by Constantine, wasn't it?
I really doubt there are many Christians who could say they believe it in its entirety. And the Apostles Creed is even stranger. Jesus descends into Hell after his ascension to gather the souls from (I guess) a place like Sheol. Which explains that ridiculous painting I saw in the Prado where the Virgin is in Purgatory (or just above it?) and Jesus and his brother are at her breasts squeezing them so that her breast milk falls on the heads of the damned or the suffering giving them comfort. This, I thought, takes the cake, really and truly.
