Well, Bart Ehrman, a respected New Testament scholar and religious teacher at UNC Chapel Hill, and writer of a number of books on the New Testament tells us that the writers are anonymous and that Princeton Theological Seminary actually teaches this fact. Many earlier scholars have also pointed out that the Gospels are likely anonymous.
I know you will come to your own conclusions and not look at the evidence....so be it....Just remember that the real truth is out there..:-)
I gaurantee you I will look at evidence. Do you think what you just provided is evidence?

Unless you prove he did, then you're just being gullible. Remember the book I'd write and sign "Bill Clinton?" You're saying people should just accept that he wrote it. Your stupid logic, your problem. Stop being gullible and you'll stop being a Jehoveh's Witness.
Unless you prove he didn't, what are you being?

Accept the claim until it's proven false. That is gullibility. Always. It's the willful suspension of skepticism. There is NEVER a time it is anything else. Approach every claim as though it's the first and only claim if you wish to be skeptical. Or, choose to be gullible in the name of whatever benefit you think you get from your religion. Just stop lying about it.

KAB, for all your nonsense and twisting of facts just to make your unreliable "source" appear more reliable than it is, you still fail to see the most important thing. An assertion (like your bible) is not evidence of anything, especially any supernatural claims. Thus, you must present evidence of the supernatural claims that is more than hearsay, hearsay is inadmissible as evidence for many reasons. Again, your bible is nothing but claims, that's all, thus there is no evidence of any supernatural events within it, and that includes the existence of your god. So, provide evidence first.

You always overlook the value of a demonstrated reliable source. You can call the acceptance of Sargon prior to physical evidence gullibility if you want, but it was the course of wisdom and correct to boot. You clearly would have been in the no-Sargon camp to your detriment just as you are now in the Neb-didn't-conquer-Egypt camp.

I guess he is also in the snakes don't talk, insects have six legs, bats are not birds, no WW flood without evidence, the earth is a sphere, pi > 3, earth came after the stars, the sky is not a solid dome camps too.

No. I just wasn't thinking about and chose to continue not thinking about AIDS and wasn't sure just what you wanted since it was completely off topic.

Is it your understanding that there is no evidence confirming anything in the Bible as correct, or are you just considering anything unproven as supernatural, or what? Please clarify what you do and don't accept in the Bible.
