I'm still waiting for that specific chapter and verse that says Noah was mocked and that the neighbor kids were welcome to board.

Since none of it happened, it's just hypothetical anyway. Still, it represents more than a little technical mistake - it was a clear illustration that what you don't know you have no fear about making up. So far you've gotten at least 4 parts of the story wrong - and it's a very short little tale, at that. Not to say you are dumb as a gopher tree stump, but you clearly don't have much room to talk about anything sailing over other people's heads.

No... Read my post again. It's pretty evident I was talking about the first 100 years, and from there to Constantine accepted Christianity as the only religion is around 300 years! I'm not saying they were never executed.

As a matter of fact the first known "so called trial" of the Christians was around 112 - 115 when Pliny the Younger was a new governor in the Roman Province when a group of Christians were brought into his court. The charges were unclear, but he executed them anyway, and later he was questioning his decision, so he writes a letter to one of his Emperor friends asking if he had made the right decision to execute them based solely on their faith. His friend wrote back and said, yep sounds good to me, but advises him not to go out looking for them, and if he got some anonymous charges against people don't take that too seriously. We don't want to set any bad precedents here

You're talking about a trial? the church after constantine, i don't think they tried them, they was just plain guilty and burnt, Jesus was the first trial of christ-ianity, w/out a doubt. not guilty but crucified anyway.. go figure. bad precedents? haha! The Catholic Church labeled rebel Christians Heretics or Gnostic and proceeded to burn them as such, now i don't get what you're asking me?

Have you been reading my post? I have been talking about the timeline of first century AD to 300 AD....... from that time period, Christianity went from a 30 to 50 member sect to being the predominate religion.
By the year 100, more than 40 Christian communities existed in cities around the Mediterranean, including two in North Africa, at Alexandria and Cyrene, and several in Greece and Italy, some say as far as India, serving as foundations for the expansive spread of Christianity throughout the world. In 301 AD, the Kingdom of Armenia became the first to declare Christianity as its state religion.

My point from the onset was, how did they become so significant in such a short period of time. Jesus preached and taught for a period of one to 3 years before he was executed at the hands of the Roman authorities in first century AD. All this growing and expansion was after Jesus' death.
They were already a force to be reckoned with b4 Constantine came on the scene.

First recorded visit to the Galapagos Islands was by a catholic bishop. It was his observations and collections that contributed to the inception of Darwin's theory of evolution by natural selection .

What's my point ? Most bible thumpers don't believe in evolution so why would they care about the religious figure that helped Darwin . You're asking an atheist to care about one scientists that studied the bible. It doesn't matter if you don't believe a word of it.

I use a cubit litmus meter...with a big, bwack stick in duh middle--to the left is the negative(you know all the losers, users, whiners, idiots, imbeciles and other general dirtbag types) and to the Right are the positives...the do it themselvers..the non nasty, respectful of, for and towards others. the NON-greedy, sane, logical and generally, actually, REALLY decent, ethical and considerate of others type folks.

Not that hard to see which ones can't get past the negative of dat big black stick...so I just keep them lump and labelduhmed as the dirtbags they are-and say to hell with 'em...becausethose kind sure aren't worth wasting a breathe of time on

I don't think it was due to any faith based notions, if that's what you're asking. They are basically defining themselves in the same terms of value {ethically and morally} as the Roman society is, nothing any different. I think the growth comes about due to a major shift in demographics at that time..Within the Roman empire, the cities were growing but the population wasn't, they were actually dying off due to plagues and famines. But outside the city you have an influx of people from the countryside other countries that are immigrating into the city, thus a new population of people.

I don't know what you're asking here?? Figuratively speaking, Spirituality speaking? or Relatively speaking?

The Roman Authorities killed Jesus.
