What brought me to topix, was the way atheist were/ are speaking against God, Jesus and the Christians.
That actually is a sceptical attitude.
And you're not skeptical about the Roman Gods, Norse gods, Meso-American gods, far- East gods, etc, etc? Bwahahaha...you're an atheist in denial...always running your motuh from a cult-memeber point-of view...sounds arrogant, self-centered...oh wait...a Xian who thinks they have the answers...I almost forgot how you folks turn of the brain before you cut n paste...I respect no faith that kills, endorses torture, and threatens bodily harm to those with a different system of beliefs...you just LIED...see you in hell...I learned that in Catholic School

No kidding...science calls it a FRAME OF REFERENCE, dumbass...EVRYTHING has a frame of reference...without it your a flailing preacher with no boundaries to work within...sort of like you fools REDEFINING words to suit your agenda.

So transparent are the old preacher tricks...Soooooooooooo transparent and obvious...

Of course without this "MAN-MADE" construct how would the bible mean ANYTHING in reference to ETERNAL TORTURE...seems even you 'word of god' needs man-made constructs to even exist? YOUR RELIGION IS A MAN-MADE CONSTRUCT, dummy...Duuuuuuh...think before you- err- sorry, forgot who I was addressing...tell me how you would describe your deity with these man-made consturcts...prior to language/communication, how ever did Yahweh reveal itself?

You can not rule out that possibility.
Without eveidence WE ALL RULE IT OUT...just like YOU can't rule out a unicorn farting rainbows which created your creator...or are we going to hear more EXCEPTIONS to rules of the universe...your god is the core of ignorance which grows smaller every day as science PROVES, through a rigorous, DEFINED process how much we DO know...being stupid is no excuse...it may be a reason for your lack of intelligence on the subject matter, but not an excuse...your inability to understand the subject matter, is a reason, not an exucse for your posts...your assertions without evidence- as Kitty has pointed out AD NAUSEUM- are EXCUSES..your lack of formal eductaion in the subject matter is REASON for your dimwittedness...and there IS NO EXCUSE FOR THAT...DUMB is a DUMB DOES.

Even Jesus is not archaeologically verified!
Is David? No.
Solomon? No.
Saul? No.
Moses?
Joseph?
Even archaeeological evidence of places is not proof of the existence of these characters.
Some of them, or something like some of them, probably lived.
And when we go back further in time...through Moses, and then back to the mythical pre-Israelite times of supposed Abraham, Noah, or Methuselah, or Adam... then its pure myth as far as any relation to archaeological facts or fact of ANY kind can be gleaned. Its about as reliable as the Iliad of Homer.
According to you, the fact that Troy was found to exist proves that Achilles really was the son of the river goddess Thetis.
False research...

<quoted text>As soon as your telekinetic abilities pass the scientific method then the claims will be taken seriously.
Anybody who doubt this is utterly ignorant. I don't give a hoot about your scientific method. Why? Because the method is bounded. It does not transcend anything outside of science. And because of that you guys will continue to have limited knowledge of everything about life. You can put a smirk on your face and learn everything about evolution so that you can pretend to be smart and ridicule God believers while I continue to hone my skills and enjoy the game in this dimension which you have no access to other than the Internet. You're lucky I'm even here. Because none of you will matter if it wasn't for me. So I suggest you take this seriously or else...see ya! I have better things to do! LOL.

Try to find some better sources. The claim of one Archaeologist does not mean they found David's Palace. From an article on finding the palace:
[quote]Other scholars are skeptical that the foundation walls discovered by the archaeologist, Eilat Mazar, are David's palace. But they acknowledge that what she has uncovered is rare and important: a major public building from around the 10th century B.C.,[/quote]
So they may have found David's Palace. I won't go into the flaws on the Historicity of Jesus, who probably was a real person. But that does not mean he did any miracles at all.
Loser and liar.
You have no clue.
You can never the bible book which is a strong source of history.

And except for the historicity of Jesus, please note no archaeologists involved. No points were made, and a rather weak one with Jesus.

The claim that King David's palace was found was not substantiated. All that was found was an unknown large building of about the right age. One archaeologist said it was Dave's place, others have their doubts. Joe's creek is no big shakes. It is not mentioned in the Bible and Joe is a more common Bible name than almost any other. What was the name of Jesus' father? Joe. What is the first name of a terrorist if it is not Mohammed or Ali? Joe.

He served up some pretty weak sauce there and you claimed it was educative.

On the contrary, I've demonstrated it. You have not addressed it. It stands until you do.
Hence I am not lying. Mistaken? Maybe. But since you just say "NO!" instead of attempting a coherent rational scientific rebuttal you have no valid cause to call me a liar other than the simple fact you disagree with me.
Your baseless religious opinions are irrelevant. Always have been. Always will be.

Worship is not always necessary. It's about spiritual peace. I'd suggest go ask a buddhist but then you'd probably tell them how they're getting their own religion wrong anyway.

There is genetic proof that characters from the Old Testament did actually exist.

Jews are obsessive about tracing genetic history, genealogy. They are determined to be able to accurately identify their prophesied Messiah.

I agree. Hence you have no clue either. You can only pretend to know otherwise, just like all the fundie Muslims, Sikhs, Jews and Hindus.
As long as we are all humans, we are like pencils in the hands of the creator.
