The Deaths of the 12 Apostles

When questioning the facts of Christianity I wonder if atheists ever give thought to how the 12 Apostles of Jesus died? It seems to me that if you want to really know Jesus or something about who he is and what he did you’re best-off knowing or learning of the people who were there, walked with him, talked with him, learned from him and witnessed the miracles. And if you are a non-believer how do you explain the deaths of most of these Apostles? What mania could have taken hold of these 12 divergent men that they would subject themselves to such fierce persecution and painful death in the name of what they preached and believed?

Isn’t it common sense to figure that they bore witness to something so extraordinary that they were compelled to undergo such torture rather than retract their beliefs? The link below provides a sanitized version of the deaths of the Apostles:

Faith will carry us through, but having faith does not exempt us from logical thinking.
