I can say with absolute certainty that circular reasoning employs logical fallacy.<quoted text>
You cannot say that with any certainty because timelines are all speculative and estimations.
Millions of years? Billions of years? Trillions of years?
The claim that the gospels are the proven "word of God" because scripture says so is as circular as it gets.
Also the notion that conclusions based on clear and convincing evidence are "mere speculation" because they lack absolute proof is spurious. If absolute certainty is the benchmark to understand the world around us then nothing is certain and all conclusions are invalid --(save for circular bible-based assertions?). Absurd.
Circular reasoning is simply fallacious. You are at war with windmills.
If Jesus was real that doesn't change the fact that the gospels were written decades after his death by people who were not eyewitnesses to his ministry.
Anyone who thinks Jesus would have a problem with rational people reaching rational conclusions believes in a very weird deity.
Mr. Real News has a problem with evidence that does not support his beliefs.
