I'm not wrong at all. I still haven't forgotten the fact that you **lied** some months back when you claimed historical references supported the existence of Jesus. Some of us then pointed out your errors and you were unable to address them. You just ignored it and moved onto something else.
And again, Mr. Ducky!
Jesus Christ, is the very base of Christianity. If truly his existence is false, there would be nothing like Christianity today. Evidence 2.
And again, the same Roman power, that the Jews used, paved the way for the gospel under Constantine. Evidence 3.

This is irony of the highest order.
In continuation, if truly according to you, Jesus never existed. People of historical importance would not have talked and wrote about him.
Pliny the Eldest and some others witnessed him, and he passed it, to his dear relative, Pliny the Young, who talked about Christ and his followers.

I don't know a single atheist who claims there is no such thing as sin. Just more bullshit bigot propaganda from self righteous religious zombies.

Pliny the Elder, born in AD 23, in Italy. Given Jesus' birth date of 4 BC (possibly 6 BC) and his death at the age of 33, that means Pliny would have been six years old (possibly 4) when Jesus was crucified.

A six year old boy living more than thousand miles away does not sound like much of a witness to me. Whether later in life he heard of this new cult of Jesus is another question. But Pliny was no Jesus witness.

This stretching of the truth to support your hopes that Jesus was well documented merely shows up the fact that he was not.

There is no such thing as "sin". "Sins" are immoral acts according to religious belief and morality is subjective.

That still does'nt count, like i said, people of historical importance like them wrote and talked about Christ. Like i earlier said, there were Jewish conspiracies, using the Roman strong holds to stop the whole Jesus issue, that was why there was no proper documentation after his death on earth.

And again, what hopes are you talking about.
Ofcourse, there was/ were no proper documentation during his life time, until after his death, which i gave the reason.
Jesus Christ existed and he is still in existence today.

Cats certainly know what you are saying when you say “dinner time”

Mind you so do goats, ducks, geese and hens. I have done a personal experiment using my pets. Saying the words at different times of day both with and without carrying their food (or treats). It seems that the words are recognised.

Many animals are far more intelligent than some people give then credit for.

Some time ago I was shown a video of pigs fitted with radio ID collars. The collars allow them to access food at certain times each day. The number of collars that were stolen by other pigs so they could get extra food was way beyond statistical probability of accidental loss.

Several animals including pigs, dolphins, the crow family (blackbirds etc), some apes etc are said to be undergoing a rapid evolutional rise in intelligence

All you need to do is show there is a creator.

Nothing more, nothing less, however you can’t, to the point is mute.

I have not rejected God. I have rejected your baseless opinions of what you think God is, however that is ENTIRELY different. Your monumentally massive fundamentalist ego causes you to assume that to disagree with you is to disagree with God. You are simply not that important.

Sorry, but you have failed to provide evidence that North Dakota is flat. You have also failed to provide evidence that the Bible was specifically referring to Dakota when it claimed the EARTH was a flat square circle.

Could very well have been KoKo. The BBC Horizon program I saw showed the ape signing a question, it was a big thing and much was made of it that a question was asked. Yes the ape was sad to hear the reply and later asked to be taken outside.

If insulting some one is one of your password, good for you.
You are indeed clueless. I ask again, is English French?
Even though English has some or several French words, does that makes English to be French? NO!
Just think instead of your rantings.
Sorry butt brain, I am not the one who accused a preacher and his wife of child murder, that was you, if you want to talk insults then feel free to try.

Now you have changes the question YET again, WTF is wrong with you? Is it a medical problem?

Several THOUSAND French words and I have never said that English was French I said that it derived from several languages. I also showed why where and how it is not unique as you claim

Just think instead of LYING in the face of your god

<quoted text> No Ducky, you are getting it wrong.
I have read and watched both religious, secular and scientific books and films( comics) about Jesus, and i have found out that he actually existed, don't be dishonest with your assertions.
I was not dishonest at all. You are. As your next sentence demonstrates:
Charles Idemi wrote:
There were Jewish conspiracies, that was why Jesus stories were not recorded during his life time on earth.
Therefore I was correct in my original assertion that there is no contemporary accounts of Jesus' existence and you agree.

Therefore it was all a big Jewish conspiracy.

Of course there is no evidence of a Jewish conspiracy because the Jewish conspiracy would wipe out evidence the same way it wiped out evidence of Jesus.

Waiting for your response!
You had our response months ago. You just stuck your fingers in your ears.(shrug) If the spread of Christianity is what makes it valid then all religions are also valid.
