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.

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.
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.

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.

Whoa there Mr.

Who ever said that there should be NO evidence confirming ANYTHING in the Bible is correct.

But, if I make claims A, B, C, D, and E, and it turns out that my claims A and D are correct, does that prove that B,C, and E are correct too? Of course not.

No to mention, we already know some of its claims are incorrect.(e.g the Flood)

You have yet to provide data confirming the flood didn't happen.

Actually we have. Since a Biblical flood would leave massive evidence behind the lack of evidence in this case is data that it did not happen.

And as usual you do have it backwards. We don't even need to show "data it did not happen". This is the sort of claim that the positive side has to give evidence for. If I claim I can fly by flapping my arms really fast you don't have to find data that I can't do it. It is up to me to demonstrate that I can.

Your flood claim is on the same order. You have to give some sort of evidence that the flood happened.

Remember KAB without any evidence YOU lose.

In every post, you reveal the systematic destruction of the rational faculty evident in your kind of believer. Faith is the Enemy of Reason said Martin Luther. He was right. You cannot even see it, can you...
