Obviously we cant expect him to argue past the inherent logical inconsistencies of basing his position on his written bible - since the reality is that noone else in 2000+ years has managed to do this. As such, we might be setting the bar a little too high for him to bring us rational understanding on that issue.<quoted text>
As far as I'm concerned, he's been downgraded to troll status (like a certain someone else on this thread). Let's see if he can crawl out of the sewer he dug himself into.
However, I would settle for
1) an acknowledgment that his religion is 100% based upon faith rather than reason (no harm with that IMO), AND;
2) perhaps more important, an apology for past hypocritical behavior (i.e. having the gall to criticize other religions for their interpretations of their own texts) AND;
3)(hope I am not pushing too much considering his character but this is important too) from this point forward no more carping on other's religion unless verbally attacked first (I.E. immediate cessation of his jihad against Jews, Judaism, Rabbis, etc etc).
I think these are fair terms for a negotiated surrender.
