I highly doubt many people would believe a person claiming to be the son of God during our era. We have seen to many false prophets come and go. Religious leaders caught up extra-marital affairs, stealing church funds, and various other crimes. Even if this person "changed water into wine" or "walked on water" we'd think he was the next (David Copperfield) rather than believe he was the son of God. And yet each leader regardless of relgion or cult will always have some followers. I subcribe to the skip the middleman policy and deal with God directly.
