Satan oooops I mean G-d demanded that the Hebrews should procreate incestuously giving rise to a psycho-genetically unbalanced community of evil-minded people. LOL.

Are Messianic Jews of "the nodding Donkey variety", "wailing at the wall".

You DO realize that you have spent the last 12 posts on the topic of satan. And you claimed you are NOT possessed?

Now, here's a curious quote from Asit Chandmal - Mumbai's bon vivant:

"If there was only one meal to choose, I would any day choose Japanese. And if there were three great meals to eat, they would be French paired with French wines. And if I was told that I could have only one type of cuisine for the rest of my life, it would be Chinese."

You have to be easy on him. India isn't used to this whole Internet thing yet. Hell, they've only had electricity since '87.

Soon he'll realize that LOL'ing your own posts is the Internet equivalent of dotting your "I's" with little hearts.

WORLD FOODS:

Mumbai's bob vivant, Asit Chandmal, holds Japanese, French and Chinese foods in great esteem. Japanese food is unfussy, light, delectable, nutritious and aesthetically presented - I'd say Japanese food is an art, nothing less. Global food genius, Tetsuya, has elevated Franco-Japanese fusion diet to epicurean heights; classical French cuisine is obscene and weight gaining, while its nouvelle counterpart is heritage-stuff; Chinese food sans MSG is palatable and bland or piquant as the province goes and has variety. Where does this leave Italian and Indian foods? Italian cooking is pedestrian and rustic - the cuisine for the undiscerning masses, while Indian food is meant for sweataholics who love clutter, monotonous taste and the smell of sweat permeated by the odor of strong spices.

Oh Hugh,
I love provoking you in order to elicit a comical response and you never fail to have me in splits. Thank you.
Chill.
My pleasure, dear.

Note, I never took offence to your words and my response was written in the spirit of your words.

So if you dont believe in Satan, why do you believe in Jesus? There is about the same amount of evidence for either.
HughBe---My dear Einstein, Satan cannot be within you as I have said if he is not real.

Frijoles---So if you dont believe in Satan, why do you believe in Jesus?

HughBe---1. I take it that a reading of my words have led you to believe that I do not believe that the devil exists.

If I were you I would go back and read them again.

2. I believe in Jesus because I trust the Jewish people who wrote about Him.

My question to you is, do you TRUST your fellow landsmen, the followers of Jesus, the Christ?

Frijoles---There is about the same amount of evidence for either.

HughBe--- Do you believe in Abraham, Isaac and Jacob?

Compare the evidence that supports the idea that they were real historical figures with the evidence for Jesus, the Christ.

Do not dodge.

Prima facie evidence, Matthew, Mark, John are JEWISH names. Paul was a former PHARISEE of the tribe of Benjamin.

Paul's words "I also am an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin."

Give me proof of the authors of the Tanach.

1. Prove that Matthew, Mark and John wrote the extant text. Where is the text is their hand writing? Where is the text in Aramaic or Hebrew?

2. Paul never met Jesus. His writings and opinions were his own.

Since we BOTH accept the TEXT of the Tanakh as being at least INSPIRED by G-d--if not some of it actually dictated by G-d, it makes no difference who actually penned the Tanakh.

You, however, said that the New Testament was written by Jews. I don't accept that premise. I believe that the EXTANT New Testament was largely written by Romans long after the purported authors died.
